“A mighty but cursed axe known to harm its user.”
—In-game description, Shadow Dragon and Shin Monshō no Nazo

The Devil Axe (デビルアクス Debiru akusu) is a special Axe that appears across the Fire Emblem Series, beginning from the Archanea Series. This axe has the ability to to randomly deflect damage back to its wielder when it is used, the frequency of which depends on the Luck of its user. This makes the axe a risky weapon: while it is able to inflict enormous amounts of damage with a single strike, any backfires are similarly enormous.

In most games, the trigger rate of the Devil Axe's ability is [31-Luck]%. Exceptions to this rule exist in Thracia 776 and Binding Blade, where the backfire rates are [21-Luck]% and [21-Level]% respectively. This ability can also be triggered when the axe is used to damage destructible map features like snags.

The Rekka no Ken and The Sacred Stones iterations of the Devil Axe award a very high amount of Weapon Experience per use, meaning that a unit could raise their axe Weapon Rank by a large amount in only a few uses.

The Devil Axe is analogous to the Devil Sword and the Devil Spear.

TriviaEdit

  • In the GBA titles, when a character damages themselves with the Devil Axe and is attacked by a Hand Axe-equipped enemy, the game may freeze depending on the class of the Devil Axe wielder.
  • It is possible for a unit to kill themselves by attacking a cracked wall or snag with the Devil Axe's return damage effect.
  • The unused Devil Axe from Path of Radiance does not function properly; the reversal effect does not work and the unit using it will become stuck in a bind pose.
