The Volant Axe is an Axe that debuted in Fire Emblem Awakening.

Overview[edit | edit source]

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.

Volant Axe literally means "Flying Axe" in French.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
