Axes are a type of tool in the Animal Crossing series. Axes have been present in all of the games since the original Animal Forest. They are used to chop down trees or hit objects.

Usage

Axes are primarily used to cut down trees in the player's town and are the only method of removing them. The removal of a tree results in a stump which must be dug out using a shovel. It can also be used as a substitute for the shovel to hit rocks to find insects, Bells and ore at a faster rate.

In Dōbutsu no Mori + and Animal Crossing, a limit to the amount of hits axes could stand was added. In the original Animal Forest axes were indestructable like any other tool.

Obtaining

In Animal Forest

In Animal Forest, there is only one axe available.

Trivia

  • In Animal Crossing New Leaf, if the player asks Lloid for an axe on the Island or during a minigame, the axe that Lloid will provide will look like a regular axe, but is unbreakable, like a Golden Axe.
  • A villager cannot be hit with an axe. If it occurs, it will be treated as a miss or it will bounce right off the villager just like the shovel.
