Location and Uses
Tomahawks are only used while fighting Dragons. If Link has won a Tomahawk in a Dungeon, it is automatically equipped when he enters that Dungeon's boss battle. Tomahawks are wielded in the same manner as the Sword, but it does three times as much damage. The Tomahawk will automatically break on the final blow, and thus cannot be carried into the next Dungeon.
- "However, the tomahawk breaks when he has destroyed the Dragon." (Game & Watch Zelda manual, pg. 9)
