This article is about the weapon type. You may be looking for Axe (NES), the most basic version of the weapon type in the NES games.

Axes in the Fire Emblem series

The Axe is one of the primary weapon types in the Fire Emblem series. A physical weapon type, axes typically possess the greatest raw power of physical weapons, yet are considerably heavier, and respectable but lesser accuracy; in this respect, axes are similar to dark magic. Along with swords and lances, axes are part of the weapon triangle; in accordance with it, they possess an advantage over lances, but are weak to swords.

Poleaxes

Poleaxes are a variation on the standard iron, steel and silver axes. Characterised as larger and heavier axes, they possess greater power than their axe counterparts at the expense of greater weight and lower hit. They are an axe counterpart to the "blade" swords and "greatlance" lances, appearing only in Radiant Dawn.

They are not to be confused with the anti-cavalry Poleax appearing in other games of the series.
