The Volant Axe (空投げ斧 Soranage ono, lit. Air Throwing Axe) is a ranged Axe that is introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening. This axe possesses the special property of inflicting effective damage against Flying Units, but this is offset by its low Durability.
The axe returns in the spin-off title Fire Emblem Warriors, serving the same purpose.
Bonus damage to flying units.

Volant Axe literally means "Flying Axe" in French.
- The Volant Axe is the only Axe weapon that deals extra damage to flying units. It is particularly effective against the Pegasus Knight class-line, comprising of classes that wield Lances (which is beaten by the Axe in the Weapon Triangle) as their primary weapons and sports low Defenses.
- The overall design of the Volant Axe bears a (near) exact resemblance to certain models of Kpingas. This is highly intentional, considering that the Kpingas are indeed throwing blades, and the in-game description for the Volant Axe even deems that it is designed to be thrown (albeit skyward).
- The Fates enemy exclusive Iron Star Axe, Steel Star Axe and Silver Star Axe all bear a resemblance to the Volant Axe in both appearance and range, but lack the effectiveness against Flier units.
