The Shadow Axe is a unique two-handed axe in The Bard's Tale (2004) and one of the games two unique weapon alongside the Ego Sword.

Location[]

It can be obtained during Chapter X: Greenlands by defeating the Zombie bearing it in the Song Portal level of MacRath's Dungeon.

Abilities[]

If the Shadow Axe is equipped when summoning it will add an electric guitar sound to the summoning song. This isn't simply a neat touch as the Shadow Axe counts as both a weapon and an instrument, tremendously cutting down on the time needed to switch between the two if the Bard wants to use his summons during combat. The weapon also has a 75% chance of causing a "Fear Strike" - which means that enemies struck by it run away for a few seconds.
