The Pickaxe (ピッケル Pikkeru?) was an item that was ultimately removed from the final cut of the original Resident Evil. The intended usage of this object is unknown, and its avatar isn't available in the game coding. Early Internet messageboards providing game hints and tips suggested that the Pickaxe was an obtainable item, used to pry open the welded door by the fountain in the Courtyard (after the Underground Tunnels area) allowing the player access to the helipad, bypassing the Laboratory altogether.
