The Super Pickax[1] (spelled "pickaxe" in Europe) is an item appearing in the Wii U, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo 3DS game Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

Super Pickaxes can be plucked from the ground similar to Turnips. If Captain Toad picks one up, he will swing it repeatedly in front of him, breaking certain objects in his way such as Brick Blocks. After a certain amount of time, the pickax will disappear. The Super Pickax can also be used to defeat enemies, and it works in a similar way to a Super Star.[2]
