Golden Axe series
Group DescriptionGames (made by SEGA) set in the medieval land of Yuria, with its legendary axe made of gold, sporadically menaced by the sinister Death=Adder and other such nasty villains. With the exception of two 8-bit 1991 Zelda-alikes and Golden Axe the Duel, a Street Fighter-style fighting game, they tend to be side-scrolling beat-'em-ups in a Final Fight vein. To distinguish themselves, customary flourishes include monstrous mounts and character-specific mastery of different magic styles.
Recurring characters include Death=Adder and the three heroes of the original game: Ax=Battler, Tyris=Flare and Gilius=Thunderhead.
