The Viking Axe is an Axe-class weapon found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is found as a Rusty Axe in a chest in Treasure Isle, in an area near the start that becomes accessible as soon as Felix gains the Grind Psynergy. Being an axe, it can be equipped by Isaac, Felix, Garet, and Piers, the four warrior-style Adepts. Its Buy value (and thus its price for reforging) is 11000 while its sell value is 8550.
The Viking Axe increases the wielder's base Attack rating by 137. Its Unleash effect is Stun Bolt, unleashing at the standard rate of 35% of the time, which adds 47 points of damage and then increases or decreases the attack's resulting overall damage based on how the user's Jupiter power measures against the target's Jupiter resistance. It also has a chance to Stun the target. The Unleash visually resembles the Adept attacking the target and a rather impressive array of purple electricity being generated across and out of the screen on impact.
It is best suited for use as soon as it can be gotten after getting Grind from Lemuria, and it provides a chance to inflict a useful Stun. It also suffices as a good placeholder weapon to place onto Isaac's team once they join the party later in the game. However, the fact it provides 8 fewer attack points than a weapon you can somewhat easily get multiples of in Lemuria itself, the Hestia Blade, as well as having an Unleash of an element that cannot be appropriately taken advantage of unless the warrior Adept has Jupiter Djinn set onto him, limits its long-term useability. To put it in perspective, the Stellar Axe is identical to this in Unleash element and side effect, but has more attack power and Unleash power.
