Concept art of the Tomahawk from Tellius Recollection: Volume 1.

A powerful throwing axe used for indirect attacks.



First game

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

The Tomahawk (Japanese: トマホーク Tomahawk) is a rare axe which was introduced in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. It is the most powerful of the ordinary throwing axes, able to attack at both close and distant range. However, it is conversely much rarer than the two lesser ranged axes, the Hand Axe and Short Axe, and is entirely unavailable to the player in The Binding Blade and New Mystery of the Emblem. Unusually for an axe, the Fates version of the Tomahawk is capable of attack at only 2 range.
