Axe Legion

The final Legion in the game is Max's, found at the end of File 08. It is by far the slowest and most powerful of the Legions, wielding a large weapon that's a cross between an axe and a greatsword. Slow attacks but lots of power, and it comes equipped with its own shield that prevents damage for a time. The shield encases the Legion, but you're certainly allowed to get in there yourself if you need the protection. Furthermore, its standard attacks sometimes leave behind small blue crystal explosives that can cause enemies additional damage when they go off.

  • Axe Detonation - Mostly used for exploration, if you find a red energy wall with a cracked hole, hold ZL and press A with the Axe Legion near it and it will destroy it and any attached red energy cubes.
  • Legion Special Action: Energy Field - Press L and the Axe Legion will float next to you. You'll walk more slowly, but the Legion's shield will not leave you. You can use this to walk through fire or poison gas.
    • Legion Counter (Axe) - If you get a Perfect Dodge in this stance, respond with ZR and a ZL Sync at the end.
  • Skill: Blue Shield - Activate this skill and the Axe Legion will send you a series of shields that rotate around you. These will prevent a set amount of damage to you before being destroyed. Handy, but the skill has a long cooldown.
    • This Skill has a cooldown of thirty seconds.
  • Skill: Crash Bomb - Activate this skill and the Axe Legion will slam its weapon into the ground, creating a sizable crystal explosive at the point of impact. The bomb explodes when touched or after a certain amount of time. It's quite damaging and is a great surprise to lay on a clustered group of enemies.
    • This Skill has a cooldown of a mere 2.5 seconds.
  • Command Skill: Rising Axe - To execute this attack, flick the Left Stick away from and then towards the intended target, then press ZL. The Legion will attack with an upward slash, tossing enemies in the air.
  • Command Skill: Axe Sweep - To execute this attack, spin the Left Stick in a circle, then press ZL, the Axe Legion will spin around causing damage.
  • Special Sync Attacks - The Beast Legion has the following situations that are neater than normal Sync Attacks:
    • Ground Combo with Gladius - After the Sync, attack again and Sync again.
    • Perfect Dodge - After the dodge, Sync Attack, then Sync again.
    • Chain Bind - After the Bind, Sync Attack, then Sync again.
    • Somersault - After the kick, Sync Attack, then Sync again.
