An axe whose design yields frequent critical hits.



First game

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

The Killer Axe (Japanese: キラーアクス Killer Axe) is an uncommon axe which was introduced in Thracia 776 and appears in every game since. As one of the series of killer weapons, it has a greatly enhanced crit stat compared to regular axes, which gives it a very high chance of inflicting critical hits and makes it an extremely dangerous weapon.
