An Apollo's Axe is an Axe-class weapon found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is acquired by bringing a Salamander Tail item to Sunshine the blacksmith in Yallam so that he may randomly forge it into this or several other items that you then may buy.
The Apollo's Axe increases the wielder's base Attack rating by 158, and this weapon is especially notable for being one where standard attacks are based on the Mars element (the damage done is affected by how the wielder's Mars power compares to the target's Mars resistance). Its Unleash effect is Flare Burst, unleashing at the standard rate of 35% of the time, which adds 54 points of damage before modifying damage based on the Mars element, and then has a chance to restore the user's HP by the amount of damage done.
A strong late-game weapon whose innate Mars attacks make it score extra damage against, as a prime example, most of the monsters in Treasure Isle, and its Unleash's side effect gives it occasional potential to benefit the user at the same time as the enemy getting damaged. Of course, it has nothing on the end-game weapons with damage-multiplying effects that are considered the game's best, and it might not even be as good as Gaia's Axes and Stellar Axes, but on an Adept in the Brute class series, it can be a valid placeholder weapon. The chance of forging the Apollo's Axe from a Salamander Tail is 15%
