* When Sweden entered the 30 Years War, all soldiers were required to have a sword. However, since the equipment was paid for by the village in which the soldier lived, many skipped the sword for economical reasons and rocked a Musket/Axe combo instead. Since most of the soldiers were peasants, axes were cheap and easy to come by.

* The Executioner, one of many failed gimmicks given to a wrestler to setup a feud with Wrestling/TheUndertaker, wielded an ax.(he ended up jobbing to Wrestling/{{Goldust}} and never being seen again)[[/folder]] again) * During the last half of the year in Wrestling/{{Progress Wrestling}}, Jimmy Havoc has taken to using an axe more to threaten people with but he did attempt to act on the threat. It has become pretty associated with him to the point of a Lego figure of him being given away with a DVD of his matches came with an axe as an accessory [[/folder]]

* Hatchets were the first close-combat weapon to be used in ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}''. One mech in particular, the AXM-2N [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Axeman]], was the first mech used by Adam Steiner in the animated series. The axe in this case weighs five tons, being designed for use by HumongousMecha. [[VibroWeapon Vibroaxes]] are one of many types of melee weapons available in the RPG SpinOff, ''Mechwarrior''

* Lexaeus of the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series uses an over-sized weapon referred to as a tomahawk in ''Chain of Memories'' and ''Kingdom Hearts II'', and as an Axe Sword in ''358/2 Days''. Some of the Keyblade designs are rather axe-like in design, usually being a decorative pole that ends with a blade-like attachment at the end. Special mention goes to [[spoiler: Master Xehanort, the BigBad of the series]], who swings around a massive Keyblade with an axe design [[spoiler: as himself]] despite possibly being [[spoiler: the oldest known Keyblade wielder in the series, bar maybe Yen Sid.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'': ** The Hunter Axe. In a world with saw cleavers, [[WhipItGood whip canes]], [[DropTheHammer tombstone hammers]], etc., this is "[[OvershadowedByAwesome just]]" an axe (that can extend into a halberd). Still, it's one of the better weapons in the game. ** ''The Old Hunters'' {{DLC}}, however, adds the Whirligig Saw, which functions as an axe but with a ''[[ChainsawGood circular saw]]'' instead of a blade, which can be thrusted into mooks spinning until they die or your [[SprintMeter stamina]] runs out.
