Hi Asher
As I recall and a lot of said recolection is from RQIII Monster Colliseum
the net was for the rettarius gladiator. I think thre plan was that he
could swipe withthe weighted net to trip or entangle your feet  first,
then once down do a proper entangle and then close in for the kill with
the trident.

Kid you not if you are low on attack with a weapon and have a net or whip
or lassoo, they are great equalisers!
