Card Trivia:Lucky Iron Axe

From Yugipedia
Jump to: navigation, search
  • This axe is likely based on the woodsman's axe featured in Aesop's fable of "The Honest Woodman", where the titular protagonist loses his axe but is offered (separately) a silver axe and a golden axe, under the assumption that one of them is his, as a test of honesty. Ultimately, the woodcutter is honest about his axe being neither of them, and receives all three axes for his honesty.
    • This is because of this card's artwork, which depicts the axe emerging from water, as well as the "positive" effect granted upon this card being destroyed by a card effect.
