• Random Lucky Medal prize at Lemuria (TLA)

In The Lost Age, the Might Axe is one of the prizes that can be won in the Lucky Medal Fountain in Lemuria. Being an Axe, it can be equipped by Isaac, Felix, Garet, and Piers. The Mighty Axe's Unleash attack is Heat Shatter (called "Heat Smash" in battle) (ヒートスマッシュ, Heat Smash?). Heat Shatter converts all damage to Mars damage and attacks with an additional 41 attack points. Also, it may lower the target's elemental resistance by 40 (it can then be lowered further, to a total of 80). Visually, Heat Shatter resembles a normal attack with a red shock wave released on impact, followed by a transparent purple shield breaking in front of the target (whether or not the target's resistance has fallen).

The Mighty Axe is close in power to the Hestia Blade, the strongest weapon available from the spring. Although the Hestia Blade is technically more powerful, the Mighty Axe can be considered just slightly more valuable since it can lower the target's resistance. As elemental resistance plays into determining the damage of most attacks, reducing Resistance allows for an increase in damage potential. Regardless of which weapon the player chooses, a stronger weapon doesn't appear until Jupiter Lighthouse, meaning both weapons will likely see quite a bit of use.
