Mattock concept art

Mattock (マトック), also known as Pickaxe, is an item from the Babylonian Castle Saga.


The Tower of DruagaEdit

Gilgamesh can find three Mattocks in The Tower of Druaga, which allows him to break inner walls a limited number of times. The number of times it can be used resets after completing a floor or obtaining a treasure chest. If the Mattock is used up, the only way to recover it is returning to the floor it was found. Mattocks will break instantly if they are used on an outer wall, including the Gold Mattock.

In the PC Engine version the Mattock usage is for each floor instead of the total, so they are never lost. The exception is the new Rainbow Mattock, which works like an item that can be used only once. It allows Gil to use the Mattock infinitely until he leaves the floor or loses a life. On the Easy and Normal difficulty, the number of times a Mattock can be used can be increased in Gil's stats, the maximum amount of uses being 20 times per floor.
