Portrayal in adaptations

In books, as well as Ralph Bakshi's 1978 film, Gimli, uses only One Axe. In Peter Jackson's Lord of Rings film trilogy, however, Gimli wields a handful of different Axes. Bearded Axe Two throwing Axes Battle Axe Double-bladed Axe like most Dwarves, Gimli favor Axe and carries an assortment of variations of weapon throughout his travels. At the beginning of his journey, Gimil was already equipped with a long-handle Axe which Double as a walking stick, to ease the strain of long walks through the vast grasslands of Middle-earth, value to the heavily clad Dwarf. As with most Dwarven Axes, staff was square edge, with tightly wrap Double-cross leather strapping, which kept Axe from slipping through his grasp. The length of this staff gives the weapon much longer reach, which, combined with his great strength, enables him to hack into enemies at three-foot distance. One of his Axes was subsequently destroyed in a noble yet fail attempt to destroy One Ring, as the Ring was indestructible to all conventional means. The Throwing Axe he has was also destroy, in Fangorn Forest by Gandalf White, whom Gimli mistook for Saruman. During Fellowship's travel through Moria, Gimli was able to retrieve a Double bladed Battle Axe which apparently belonged to his father's cousin Balin, Lord of Moria, who had perished during Goblin and Orc's attack on Dwarrowdelf. Being double bladed, it allows Gimli to swing it in both directions, without any need to constantly change angle or grip. But it was much heavier, with shorter staff, which meant it was more suited to close combat but was compensated by its great striking power. He is never seen using it during the Return of the King film, as it remains pinned to his cloak. Gimli uses all the axes mentioned above throughout War of Ring. He uses them depending on battlefield conditions and types of enemies that he would have to face. No matter what Axe, however, Gimli uses them all with devastating power in every battle he face, working in perfect conjunction with Aragorn's swordplay and Legolas' skill with bow. In addition to his melee weapons, Gimli utilized several throwing Axes for ranged attacks. These Axes, though obviously not ones with the most range, could effectively kill whatever they were throw at; however, he rarely uses them in films. In the movies, Gimli throws an axe at cave troll and at Gandalf in Fangorn Forest. He also threw one at Uruk at the beginning of the Battle of Amon Hen. It is apparent that he prefers engaging in direct combat rather than using his throwing axes. Only on PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube platforms of Two Towers Gimli has 25 throwing Axes and has 30 throwing Axes in Return of King Video Game on the same above mentioned platforms, as well as Mac and PC.
