* DemonicSpiders: The skeletons. They inflict twice the damage of normal mooks, tend to come in duos along with other enemies, are common in the last 3 levels, are fast, have to be comboed at least 3 times to kill, and like all enemies have the annoying tendency to flank you whenever possible. They also have a jumping attack that does almost as much damage in one hit than their whole ground combo combined, which by the way is 1.5 bars of health.

Worse still, in the FanRemake ''Golden Axe Legend'', their shields aren't just for show or [[ShieldBash klonking over the heroes' heads in a short ranged combo]]: they block attacks, and in fact do so ''very'' often.

** 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: ''III'' is, to this day, either the best game of the series by far with tighter controls, much more varied moves and characters or an ugly slow mess.

Added DiffLines:

* TheWoobie: The three protagonists of the first game, given their {{dark and troubled past}}s coming from Death Adder's invasion of their lands in the Firewood Kingdom. Of special note is Tyris, who once was the ''princess'' of that place and, as a little girl, suffered the invasion and saw her beloved mother the Queen die before her eyes.

* VindicatedByHistory: During its time of release, ''III'' was negatively received, and people seemed to be glad that [[NoExportForYou it didn't leave Japan]]. As time passed and through emulation, people started appreciating the game more without comparing it to the older games and started wishing that Sega should have brought that to the Western shores. As of today, the game is available in the West through Sega Genesis Collection bundles, and people think of it fondly. It also helps that compared to ''[[FranchiseKiller Beast Rider'', ''III'' was agreed to be a lot better.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The ''Sega Ages'' remake of the original game. Sub-par [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation PS1]] graphics on the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 PS2]] was just one of the many issues the remake had.

** 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.
