Golden tools are upgraded versions of tools found in all Animal Crossing series games, being rarer, but even better than silver tools. Tools that can be found golden include the Axe, Fishing Rod, Net, Shovel, Slingshot, and Watering Can.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, golden tools are breakable, unlike previous games. However, they are significantly more durable than regular or flimsy tools. Golden tools are made via DIY, with each requiring the regular version of said tool and a single Gold Nugget in order to craft them.

Golden Axe[edit]

Players can obtain a Golden Axe by doing the following in each game. Golden axes never break, and cut trees faster. They may also leave special patterns on the stumps.
