Spinning axes are enemies in Seedling.
Spinning axes are made up of two main components: a circular-shaped "body" and an axe. The body is composed of multiple shades of grey, with a small opening at the bottom. Attached to the body is a handle with an axe that is also grey with a red blade. This component spins around the body as the spinning axe moves.
First seen in Gundernoud, spinning axes appear in an enclosed area, traveling in straight lines at different angles until they hit a wall, of which they turn in another direction. Only the body is vulnerable to attack, so while hitting, the player must be careful not to be hit by the axe too many times or the young seedling will have to restart that area. Swinging the sword while dashing is a way of landing hits on spinning axes while avoiding their attacks.
