* Orion from ‘’Fanfic/RWBYSecondGeneration uses a massive double-sided axe as his primary weapon. It’s also incredibly modular, as it can split into [[DualWielding twin hatchets]] that, as per the series’s standard, [[SwissArmyWeapon are also guns]]

* ''Anime/GunBuster'': The titular robot was equiped with Buster Tomahawk (or, how [[ActionGirl Noriko]] [[HotBlooded Takaya]] would [[NoIndoorVoice tell]]: [[CallingYourAttacks "BUSTAAAA TOMAHAAAAWK..."]]): twin, fifty-foot-long axes folded into its shoulders. The weapon was meant to be a ''Manga/GetterRobo'' ShoutOut but it didn't make it to the anime. However it was included in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' where ''Manga/GetterRobo'''s Ryouma teaches Noriko.

** Some Keyblades 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 Master Xehanort, the BigBad of the entire franchise, who swings around a massive Keyblade with an axe design despite possibly being [[BadassGrandpa the oldest known Keyblade wielder in the series]], bar maybe Yen Sid.

** A weapon class in ''DragonQuestIX'' as well, that deals bonus damage against plant-type enemies. However, it's not very useful as there are no high-end monsters to use it on.

* The Varangian Guard, Rus' Vikings permanently hired to guard the throne of the Byzantine Empire, were noted by multiple sources firstly for their height and secondly for the very large Danish axes which served as their primary weapons. To the Greek-speaking Byzantines, they were known as ''pelekyphoros phroura''--literally, the axe-bearing guard.

Their axes had been designed and built with great care to be at the same time very light for their size, very sharp and to use momentum in swinging, so they could ''[[{{NightmareFuel}} cleave through]]'' an armored man.

* Most Orcs in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII''. True, there are sword users, but orcs are mostly associated with axes in the series, grunts even having a victory animation where they flip it in the air and catch it. The Tauren Chieftain (who has a poleaxe taller than himself) even says "I have an axe to grind." upon training.

On the other hand, the human Militia unit (essentially a [[WorkerUnit Peasant]] that picked up some basic weapons and armor at the town hall), wields a small axe along with a wooden shield, contrasting the steel kite shield and sword of the standard Footman.
