History in the seriesEdit
The Axe Armor debuts in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War alongside the Sword Armor and Bow Armor classes. No Axe Armors within the game were recruitable, with only Sword Armors being available to the player's army.
The Armor Axe wouldn't return to the series until Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn alongside the other Armor variants, where they promoted to the unique Axe General class and onward to their own version of the third tier Marshall class that focused on Axes.
In its first two appearances, Armor Axes have the same stats as the other Armor variations, and should be treated similarly.
In Thracia 776 Armor Axe promotes to General, and it is assumed the same applies to Genealogy of the Holy War.
- Armor Axe is given multiple names within the English version of Radiant Dawn. It is called Armored Axe in the class roll, but Armor Axe in the in-game status screens.
