Gigantic Maces are items from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. These maces are the primary weapons used by Stalfos. If Link destroys a Stalfos' body, he can use the creature's Gigantic Mace as a weapon. Link cannot carry them between rooms, and they are not available for use from the inventory screen. They can be thrown to damage enemies at long distances.
Stalfos can use Gigantic Maces to perform a horizontal swing or a long spin attack, and can send Link flying a considerable distance with tremendous damage; however, Link can only perform a vertical strike or a standard Spin Attack. Unlike other enemy weapons, a Gigantic Mace will automatically equip itself to an unarmed Stalfos when their shattered bodies reform, provided Link is not holding onto it.
