The Elemental Axe is a craftable post-Moon Lord summon weapon. The minion floats around the player and attacks nearby enemies, inflicting the Elemental Mix debuff. It will travel through blocks to reach its target. Summoned axes constantly rotate colors.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Elemental Axe has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
