The Executioner's Axe is a high quality axe that debuted in the ninth game and subsequently appeared in the Monsters spin off titles.

Localization history[edit]

The Japanese name for the executioner's axe seen in IX is written as はおうのオノ in hiragana, which is also the name of the Conquerer's axe. The weapon was given a different name by the localization team for the English release of the title, possibly as wordplay to tie it to the Headsman's axe of which it is an alchemical improvement of.

The Japanese name for the weapon in J2 is 大魔神の斧 (Daimajin axe), and the name has exclusively applied to the axe since its debut.
