The Poseidon Cannon is a Cannon in Kid Icarus: Uprising. As its name states, it is designed after Poseidon. It is unique among cannons that it does not use explosive rounds but the power of water instead.

Idol description

Imbued with just a fraction of the sea god's strength, the Poseidon Cannon fires rippling, water-like shots that entangle enemies and smash them with the force of a flood. Its rapid fire blasts enemies with a veritable divine water cannon.
