* UglyGuyHotWife: In the ''Duel'', we have Panchos's ending. He becomes known as the Iron King, marries a beautiful blonde girl and has a son with her. In game, Panchos is obese and has long hair (altought he trimmed them down once he's king).

* UnwinnableByMistake: Sometimes, if you're not in a good position when being hit by an aggressive {{mook|s}} (usually {{Elite Mook}}s), you will be hit repeatedly with an infinite combo like the one in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4kpSm4W_WM this video]]. If you're not playing co-op mode and having your friend to help you, the only way to escape is much likely to reset the game since not only that infinite combo has its end but also your character [[WhyWontYouDie cannot die somehow]].

However, the precautions guide in the ''Golden Axe II'' manual was drawn in a realistic Americanized style instead of the usual cartoony one.

** Also from ''III'', the grapple attacks. Every character has another move in his/ her move list that does more damage or has greater range. Perhaps the only reason for a grapple is to set up a throw.

* BittersweetEnding: In ''III''. Hellstrike may have perished and the Golden Axe retrieved for safekeeping. But, the King is dead and the heroes who were not rescued from their DemonicPossession were never seen again. The last part can be mitigated by taking certain paths and make sure all heroes are knocked back into their senses.

* CombinationAttack: In ''Revenge of Death Adder'', the players may team up on a stunned enemy (bosses included) for a high-powered, multi-player pile-driver. If 3 characters grab the enemy, they do a [[SpinningPiledriver spinning pile-driver]]. If there are 4 players, then they hit the unfortunate enemy with a ''spinning pile-driver so powerful that the enemy continues to spin into the ground after they've released him/her/it''. Depending on game settings this powerful attack might take off an entire life bar and can be fatal to a mid-boss.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: In ''III'', while using Sarah, it is not uncommon to throw her sword (Forward, Back, Forward, Attack + Jump) when you meant to do her roundhouse kick (Forward, Attack + Jump). Especially after you have just changed the direction she's facing. Of course, if you're instead using Chronos, you'd be happy instead because this unleashes his GameBreaker charge. Just hope that you don't dash right into a BottomlessPit that removes a chunk of your HP. Thankfully, there's only a few of them.

* FakeUltimateMook: The Corvette knights in the third Mega Drive game have full armor in a game where just about everyone else wears a loincloth and possibly a bikini top, are twice the size of the player and the first one is treated like a boss. They are rather easy to defeat once you notice their huge crippling weaknesses, namely their lack of any ability to hit an airborne character, being easily grappled as soon as they (slowly) stand up.
** However, they are still strong enough if they appear in a group of two or three. The FinalBoss session is the example. if they flank you while you are busy with the boss, it's not a surprise if they can give you some trouble. And in general, their combo attack is actually quite painful.

* OvertookTheManga: ''Golden Axe II'' predated the actual arcade sequel (''Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder'') by roughly a year.
* PaletteSwap: The original arcade game featured a set of six enemies (four mooks and two sub-bosses) that are re-used throughout the entire game in different colors. The blue and red dragons, as well as the blue and green thieves, were also palette-swaps of each other.
** The Genesis version added even more palette swapped variants of the enemies, including different versions of the final boss Death Adder.
** Averted in the Master System, in which every enemy and beast uses the same palette as the player. This actually made the fireball-spitting dragons impossible to tell apart visually from their short-ranged counterparts.

* StockScream: The original arcade game uses some screams from various movies for the death cries of the enemy character.

** And ''Revenge of Death-Adder'' uses [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Raphael's]] [[SkywardScream skyward]] [[PrecisionFStrike Damn]] shout for two bosses. One of them, Death-Adder himself.
