** The "fighting" Mantis in ''RoDA'' has a grab attack where it grabs the enemy, pulls them close, and you hear the same loud CRUNCH you hear where your character eats food.

** The theme in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdpKiuF8W38#aid=P807W7tsb3A Ride the Whirlwind]] stage in ''III'', which is also combined with an awesome level setting of fighting atop of a giant falcon. You're probably not taking this level because [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential it doesn't give you more prisoners for extra life to save, and you'll not save one of your brainwashed friends.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Chronos Lait is one of the few characters from ''Golden Axe III'' who has some cult following or fanarts, mainly due to his GameBreaker skill, his original design (as opposed to being based on a previous character), or the fact that in the cover, he was riding a Bizarrian and [[{{Badass}} about to rip it to two]].

* EvenBetterSequel: The third Mega Drive game is a noticeable improvement over the first two, boasting a FightingGame style special attack system, branching paths and less ambiguous health gauges. [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks Some fans regret it, preferring the simple, frantic action of the first two games]]. It's also not as pretty as the first two arcade games, being a Genesis game.

* FirstInstallmentWins: Most of the fanart in the series usually are about the main trio (Ax, Tyris and Gillius), and mostly in their original design. Good luck finding art of any of the characters from the arcade and Mega Drive sequels.
** Averted with Death Adder. His cameos in other games tend to use his design from ''Revenge of Death Adder'', rather than his original incarnation.

* GameBreaker: Chronos' Forward-Back-Forward + Attack + Jump in ''Golden Axe III''. Easy input, huge damage, wide range, makes him invincible while doing the move, unblockable.
** The red dragon in the first game. Spam the attack button and the fireballs will knock enemies down with no chance of them of retaliate.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Unfortunately, ''The Revenge of Death Adder'' is only installment in the series that has never been ported to any home console or download service, which is a shame as it would've been a great launch title for the Sega Saturn or Sega 32X.

* PolishedPort: The Genesis version of the first game added a new level, a new final boss, Easy Mode, Duel Mode, and more palette swaps.
** The PC version had all that and more colorful graphics, though at the expense of sound quality.

** ''Golden Axe: Beast Rider'', a 3D action game, wasn't much better received. ''Play'', a now defunct gaming magazine, gave a much more favorable review than pretty much any other critics. Interestingly, the reviewer nearly outright accused other critics of being incredibly biased with this trope in mind, reasoning that certain "online reviewers" wouldn't have enough time to thouroughly test the game for a decent review. This is contrasted with many other games that reviewers spend a great deal of time playing before reviewing.

* 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]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/BorisVallejo created [[http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/tracing/vallejo-silversword.jpg cover art]] for ''III'' which went unused.

** ''The Revenge of Death Adder'' greatly expands upon the original with better graphics, branching levels and more playable characters which have team up attacks similar to''VideoGame/TheSimpsons''.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The ''Sega Ages'' remake of the original game. Sub-par PS1 graphics on the PS2 was just one of the many issues the remake had.

* FridgeBrilliance: The skeletons in the third game don't look like human skeletons, and the dark variant even have tails. [[spoiler:They might be remains of lizardmen from the second game.]]
