Golden Axe


Eighty years after Death Adder's second defeat, the people had forgotten the tragic events of the past and had rebuilt their lives, and the Golden Axe is considered to be only a legend. However, the axe is rediscovered, and its power appears to have increased, being said to be able to grant its owner anything his heart desires. The Golden Axe itself appears to lure people to it, a quiet voice deep in their souls calling them by name and saying "Make your wishes come true".

Many fight to claim the Golden Axe, of which ten warriors stand out. After defeating all opponents, the victor must face the Golden Axe itself in the Death Palace. The Golden Axe takes the shape of a powerful golden armor, which is believed to be the spirit of a sacred God dwelling within the axe. After its defeat, the winner claims the Golden Axe, its fate depending of the character used by the player.

Golden Axe: The Duel




Page Updated:  Jan. 6th, 2021

In case you didn't hear it already, Golden Axe was one of my all time favorite games growing up in the 80's. So... the Golden Axe eventually turns into a giant golden knight?! As far as knights go, this big boss of a knight is pretty badass. Even though he plagiarized the name of his own game, "Mr. Golden Axe" made a pretty menacing boss for Golden Axe: The Duel. I guess he's a bit like Soul Edge from... Soul Edge. ^_^

As a massive-sized boss in 2D sprite form, he didn't get a ton of frames of animation... but the ones he does have are solid. His block animation where he just holds out one hand to block is particularly cool.
