Golden Axe
"An ancient and sacred weapon."
―Description, Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Golden Axe is a Thunder-elemental sword available for Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is currently exclusive to the paid Steam release of the game and the outdated free Battle Demo.

Description

The Golden Axe is a double-headed axe with a predominantly brown and gold color scheme. Its blades are golden and adorned with a triangle marking of some sort, reminiscent of the Protect animation. The handle of is brown with two golden pieces of cloth (or maybe actual gold) threaded along its length. The top of the handle has a spike that separates both heads of the axe, and the pommel has a large spike on the tip and several smaller spikes around its base.

Normal

The Golden Axe is a balanced weapon that has a focus on the Good and Bad Luck statuses. It offers above-average Attack and a decent Magic Attack stat, along with a moderate HP boost. It also is capable of unleashing Big Spark as its bonus skill, dealing additional physical damage. The Golden Axe has a high chance of giving Matt the Good Luck status (which becomes effectively permanent Good Luck at Level 5) and will apply several rounds of Bad Luck with Weapon-elemental attacks, when combined, these two effects provide a wealth of small bonuses and can also be very useful in Doom-based strategies (such as with the Heartstopper). 

In comparison to the Lightning Shard, the Golden Axe provides a significantly stronger offense and defense along with a meaningful bonus skill. It can also emulate the Lightning Shard's Accuracy boost, meaning that the only reason to use the Lightning Shard over the Golden Axe is for the multi-target Weapon-elemental counter, which can be useful for spreading status conditions. 

The Golden Axe provides resistance to Thunder, Dispel, Death and Doom. All but the Thunder resistance become immunities at Level 5.

The Alt Golden Axe is a Holy-based weapon whose radiance can heal the sick and immobilize Matt's enemies with awe...or just by hitting them really hard. It provides good Attack for a minor loss of Evade, empowers Holy skills, and occasionally casts Purify between turns to heal the party's status ailments. Its Weapon-elemental skills have a good chance to Stun their victims for up to 2 turns, and its Slicing Cyclone counterattack gives it the means to hit an entire wave at once if Matt is attacked.

Overall, the Alt Golden Axe is mostly suited for a status build, where Matt focuses on Stun-locking foes; with a Hat and Armor that increase the chance of landing status effects, Slicing Cylcone is guaranteed to Stun non-resistant foes, while Unleash will be guaranteed even against foes with 50% resistance.

The Alt Golden Axe resists Holy, Curse and Bad Luck, with the latter two becoming immunities at Level 5. It also has a Dark weakness, which remains constant no matter its forging level.
