Tomahawks are old Native American weapons used by Nightwolf in Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, and Mortal Kombat (2011). 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 X, Nightwolf's Tomahawks are red.
