Tomahawks are old Native American weapons used by Nightwolf in Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Mortal Kombat (2011) and Mortal Kombat 11. These tomahawks are also featured as another one of the collectible Relics under the name Nightwolf's Axe within the Konquest mode of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.
This enchanted axe has been used by members of Nightwolf's Native American tribe for centuries. Now, Nightwolf uses this same ancient and enchanted axe as a weapon to battle his enemies and the evil spirits of other worlds.
- The Tomahawks are used by Nightwolf in every generation. In MK3, MK:D and MK:A, he uses Tomahawks made out of Earthbound materials. In Mortal Kombat (2011), however, it is a spiritual weapon that Nightwolf can summon, similar to how he does with the Bow and Arrow. In Mortal Kombat 11, his tomahawks were once again made out of materials.
- Also in Mortal Kombat 11, Nightwolf can duplicate his tomahawks into two.
- In Mortal Kombat X, The Revenant Nightwolf's Tomahawks are red. However, they appear to return to the green versions in Mortal Kombat 11.
- In Mortal Kombat Mobile’s Faction Wars Store, the Bloody Tomahawk is one of the many equipment items which can be bought with Blood Rubies.
- Some of Sub-Zero's kustomization options for his Ice Battle Axes appear to look very similar to Tomahawks.
