*** Dwarfs take it up to twelve; The Khazalid word for "axe" (az) doubles as a prefix meaning "warrior". An "azdawi" or "axe-dwarf" is a Dwarf warrior, an "azumgi" or "axe-human" is a human warrior, etc. This applies even if the warrior in question uses a completely different weapon and has never touched an axe; Axe <-> Warrior as far as Dwarfs are concerned.

* In ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'', [[GentleGiant Kintaros]] wields an axe, as does his version of Den-O, which is actually named Axe Form. This is because Kintaros is based on the Japanese myth of Kintaro the Golden Boy, who himself used an axe.
* In ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'', OOO's ultimate form, [[StockDinosaurs Putotyra]] specialises in the use of an axe named Medagabryu. His other forms can use it too, but only Putotyra can use it's [[BifurcatedWeapon alternate]] [[{{BFG}} mode]].
* In ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'', this is Kamen Rider Tiga's WeaponOfChoice. His ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'' counterpart is even ''named'' Kamen Rider Axe.
* In ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'', the title character gets an axe-sword combo (called Axcalibur) in his SuperMode.
