* ComicallyMissingThePoint: The King of the Sharkees knows that King Neptune's trident is powered by "good will". As he has the ''greatest'' will in his kingdom, it should be easy for him to work it. The fact that it is not frustrates him to no end.

** The Official Book of King's Quest points out; If you know mythology, you'll probably know what to do with the snake and a bridle... It further explains, that the reader might ask what kind of nonsense is this (thinking it odd); however, readers of Greek mythology would know that a winged horse, named Pegasus, sprang fully grown from the head of Medusa (a babe with snakes for hair) when she was slain. So there is a link between winged horses and snakes, even if expecting a player to think "Greek mythology + snake = throw bridle" is still pretty inane. The King's Quest Companion, 2nd Edition gives two explanations that "Graham 'accidentally' threw the bridle" while trying to use his sword. The second explanation discusses the history and inspiration behind the puzzle Pegasus was born from Medusa, and Bellerophon was given a magic bridle by Athena in order to ride Pegasus.

** Actually, the bucket of water was intentional, Graham wanted to extinguish the dragons flames to reduce the likelihood of getting crispified while using the dagger, but seeing the dragon blush stayed his hand.



** Once you have Neptune's trident, you can turn the Sharkees into small harmless fish.
