Shove (Radiant Dawn)

The Armored Axe (Japanese: 斧重装兵アクスアーマー Axe Armor) is a basic armored class debuting in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. It is one of four weapon-specific variations of the Knight, specialising in the use of axes, and appears only in Genealogy of the Holy War, Thracia 776 and Radiant Dawn. It is statistically near-identical to its counterparts, the Armored Sword, Armored Lance and Bow Armor.

It is a playable class only in Thracia 776, where it promotes to General; while not playable in Radiant Dawn without hacking, the axe-specific Axe General would be its hypothetical class-changed form and does have a playable member. Through hacking devices in Radiant Dawn, Armored Axes do indeed promote to Axe General.
