* AllThereInTheManual: The names of the characters (including the heroes) in ''Golden Axe III'' are -only- found in the manual, and the manual is only in Japanese. This also applies to the enemy characters in ''II''. The manual for ''III'' also provide some background information for the new setting, and the inputs for the more fancy moves (such as Kain's ground flame and Cragger's mini-tornados).

* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother, Both Parents, or Twin Brother]]: The heroes each lost a loved one to the big bad. Averted for two heroes in ''III''. Chronos wants to reverse the curse on him, while Cragger is paying back for his imprisonment by the demon army (and as a favour to Gillius, who freed him).

Added DiffLines:

* MedievalStasis: Averted as Yuria's technology level improves as games go further down the time-line. The first game starts off at the 'Dark Ages to Medieval' level of technology that's standard fare for SwordAndSorcery, Revenge of Death-Adder sees the world grow in size of cities and develop some ClockPunk levels of tech. And in Golden Axe: The Duel, at least one region has grown to SteamPunk advancement. But in all cases, the games never stray too far from its SwordAndSorcery roots.

* EasyModeMockery: The Genesis version features a Beginner mode that lasts only three stages, ending with a battle against Death Adder Jr., a weaker version of the regular Death Adder. Magic spells only uses two potions instead of the entire bar.

* EasyModeMockery: The Genesis version features a Beginner mode that lasts only three stages, ending with a battle against Death Adder Jr., a weaker version of the regular Death Adder. Magic spells only uses two potions instead of the entire bar. Downplayed in that after beating the weaker version of Death Adder, the game encourages you to take on Arcade Mode, or return to Beginner mode for more practice.

* ArcadePerfectPort: While the Sega Genesis and PC versions were built with new features and slightly altered graphics, the Commodore Amiga version of the game was in fact an extremely close port of the arcade original. The only thing which really let it down was that the Amiga only had a one button joystick so the jumping mechanics had to be tweaked.
