Lucy the Axe

Lucy the Axe is a character-specific item that Woodie begins the game with. Lucy has infinite durability and in Woodie's hands, cuts Trees extraordinarily fast. Lucy is a sentient being, although it is not known if this is real or just Woodie's imagination. When equipped, Lucy will speak a line such as 'I missed you', 'Did you miss me?' and 'You came back!'.

Lucy will egg Woodie on when he chops down Trees, until he has almost reached the point at which he will become a Werebeaver. When the transformation is almost ready to occur, Lucy will begin to warn Woodie.

Lucy can be used as a melee weapon, dealing half the damage of the regular axes.

Lucy cannot be stolen by Krampus, Splumonkeys, Prime Apes or eaten by Eyeplants, although she can be destroyed if Woodie tries to attack a Nightmare Throne with her equipped.

AppearanceEdit

Lucy is based on a traditional fire axe, having a red blade with a silver edge, and a wooden handle. Lucy speaks with red text that appears below Woodie, to avoid confusion with Woodie's white text, and is given a shrill, instrumental sound effect whenever her lines are spoken.

When not in the player's inventory, Lucy will be indicated on the map by an icon. This can be useful to indicate where the player's items were dropped at the point of a Werebeaver transformation.

In Don't Starve Together (DST), though she has received no changes in terms of use, Lucy did receive some minor tweaks. Other players cannot use or even hold Lucy, as she will just slip from their grasp. Even if she is spawned directly into their inventory she will just fall out onto the ground. In addition, if Woodie loses Lucy and is unable to retrieve her for any reason he can simply craft a normal Axe that will turn into Lucy as soon as he begins to chop a tree.

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • Whether Lucy is speaking in real life or not is, as of yet, unknown. There has been plenty of speculation on the matter, ranging from insanity, through curses, to past relationships. The devs have been cagey on the subject, but they have said that Woodie is fairly levelheaded, Lucy's talkativeness aside.
    • Lucy's DST quotes for other characters imply that Lucy can actually talk.
  • Lucy is the first item that can speak and has distinct lines, not just sound effects, like the Living Log's scream.
  • Lucy is voiced by a musical saw.
  • When playing Adventure Mode, Lucy will not use a slot in the Teleportato. She will appear in Woodie's inventory after arriving in the new world.
  • Lucy's line, "All work and no play makes me want to chop trees", is a reference to the English proverb "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". This may also be a reference to the pivotal scene in the Stephen King film "The Shining", where insane character Jack Torrance types this line many times, and later uses an axe similar to Lucy as a weapon.
