Other films such as Robinhood Prince of Thieves, The Messenger, King Arthur and Excalibur had scenes of war where the trabuco was being shown attacking or defending a position.

Trabuco could easily smash through a kingdom’s defenses causing their fortifications to be easily breached.
Other films such as Willow, Troy and Kingdom of Heaven showcased the trebuchet. This weapon made war a difficult and dangerous thing for many people during medieval times according to merriam-webster.com.
