A player whose axe has broken

An Axe is a tool that is used to chop down trees so that they can be removed. In Doubutsu no Mori, only one axe is available and it is unbreakable. However in all subsequent games, standard axes have a limited number of uses and will degrade with every use before shattering.

Usage[edit]

An axe can be swung at trees, which will fall after three strikes. Striking a fruit or Money Tree will cause the fruit or money bags to fall to the ground. Cutting down a tree results in a stump which must be dug out using a shovel. Swinging an axe when there are no surrounding obstacles results in the player swinging and missing. Attempting to strike a villager with an axe will result in the axe either missing or simply bouncing off of them. Axes have a limited number of uses before shattering, requiring them to be replaced. As an axe degrades, it's inventory icon becomes more visibly distressed with a crack appearing to become increasingly larger. Axes can also be used as a substitute for the shovel to hit rocks to find insects, Bells and ore. This will also quickly degrade the axe, however.

More advanced variations of the axe are available; a Silver Axe is more durable, and the Golden Axe is quicker to use and unbreakable. In New Leaf, the Silver Axe and Golden Axe can create special designs on the stumps left behind after felling a tree.
