Breath of the Wild In-Game Description

The Ancient Battle Axe++ is a two-handed axe found in Breath of the Wild and Age of Calamity.

Breath of the Wild

Ancient Battle Axe++s have a base power of 60, and can be obtained by defeating Guardian Scouts in Shrines of Trials, for example in Shrines labelled 'A Major Test of Strength'. As a type of axe, it can be used to fell trees and obtain Wood. When Link is carrying this weapon, only the handle shows; the blue parts only show up once it is held in the hand. This aesthetic is very similar to other Ancient Equipment, specifically the Guardian Sword and Shield. Due to its ability to receive the Ancient Proficiency buff, a +15 power Ancient Battle Axe++ can become the single mightiest weapon in the entire game, outstripping even a maxed Royal Guard's Claymore, with an absurdly high effective might of 135 against normal enemies, and a nuclear 175 against Guardians.
