The Axe Armor sprites originally used in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood have also been used in Castlevania: Dracula X, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin (called Old Axe Armor), and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. It is a full suit of armor armed with an Axe and a Shield and worn by a veteran zombie warrior.

Axe Attacks
This axe armor is armed with an Axe, which it can use in three ways. It can toss it forward and have it return like many other Axe Armors can do. It can toss in an arc (unlike the forward boomerang-like attack found by many other Axe Armors). It can also use as a hand weapon during a charge attack. The Axe is often dropped and can be used as a sub-weapon.

Axe Knight Shield
It also equipped with a shield, which blocks much of the damage received and can be destroyed separately. Axe Knights in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (which do not look like this kind of Axe Armor) and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair can drop this shield, which can be used by Alucard as one of his own shields. This shield can summon an Axe Knight ally when used in conjunction with a Shield Rod.

This axe armor is normally blue in color. The red ones have the same amount of strength and defense, but are more aggressive.

Used by Player
The armor itself can also be used and worn by the player in some games. It can worn by Alucard in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. It can be played with as a separate character in Old Axe Armor mode in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. When another player in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair uses a character you have not purchased, it appears as if they are wearing this Axe Armor. See Old Axe Armor for more details on the playable versions.
