A Great Axe is an Axe-class weapon available in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is sold in weapon vendors at Kalay, Tolbi, Lunpa, and Lalivero in Golden Sun and at Contigo in The Lost Age. Being an Axe-class weapon, a Great Axe can be equipped on Isaac and Garet in the first game, together with Felix and Piers in the second. It increases the wielder's base Attack rating by 80 points. Its buy value is 5200 coins and its sell value is 3900 coins.
In Golden Sun, Great Axes can be first bought at Kalay, where it is the strongest common weapon that can be bought there. If one of your Adepts still has the Arctic Blade equipped, a Great Axe would be a very worthy replacement weapon for that Adept. It would not be a good replacement at all for an Adept who has the axe Artifact Vulcan Axe, however, because even though the Vulcan Axe has a few base Attack points less, it is ultimately better in battle than the Great Axe because it at least has an Unleash effect.
In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, the way the Great Axe is handled is borderline baffling: It is only sold as a common weapon at the vendor in Contigo, making it first available long, long after you can acquire far superior weapons for everyone (a prime example being the Mighty Axe, an artifact you can get multiple copies of in the Lemurian version of the Lucky Medal Fountain and has a base Attack rating of 142, along with an Unleash effect). It is clearly not a weapon anyone would buy in the second game. If this game is being played without any data transfer or with a Password that's either Bronze or Silver-level, when Isaac's party joins Felix Garet will be equipped with a Great Axe, which is of course far inferior to the Mighty Axes and other equipment Felix's party will surely have amassed by that point.
