Masking Axe (Japanese: 鉄面の斧 Iron mask axe) is a weapon skill in the axe category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is a personal weapon of Gerome. The Masking Axe deals bonus damage when in combat with a cavalry foe, and grants a boost to the user's Attack and Defense during combat if the target initiates combat or has sufficiently high HP. When refined, it also grants a boost to the user's Attack and Defense at the start of the turn and reduces the Attack and Defense of enemies during combat if no allies are adjacent to the user.
