"A weapon used by Guardian Scouts. Its unique blade was forged using ancient technology. Although powerful, its unusual shape causes it to break easily."
— In-game description

The Ancient Battle Axe is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is an axe with a base attack power of 30, but this may be increased by certain Weapon Bonuses. It is a Battle Axe made of advanced ancient technology wielded by Guardian Scouts. Link can find it in certain Treasure Chests of the Divine Beasts and Shrines, or obtain it by using the amiibo Rune with the Guardian amiibo.

Despite their name, the Ancient Battle Axe and its advanced versions are considered part of the "Guardian" series as the Ancient Oven Cherry (a modified Guidance Stone that forges Ancient Soldier Gear) at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab is unable to forge them.
