The Axe Knight (also known as Axe Armor) is a common armored knight that uses an Axe as his primary weapon. Axe Knights attack by throwing the axe which then returns to their hands, or more rarely, is thrown in an arc. Some Axe Knights can also hack with this axe. Axe Knights also commonly hold shields, making them tougher to defeat, and may block some attacks. A playable version of this enemy is available in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Portrait of Ruin (see Old Axe Armor). Knights carrying a long handled axe that is used only for hacking are called Great Axe Armors.

In the early platform side-scrolling adventures, the Axe Armor could throw axes horizontally at either high or low elevation levels. Both elevations offered the player a chance to avoid being hit by crouching or jumping respectively. Some later revisions of this behavior don't allow the player to crouch under higher thrown axes, forcing them to either jump over or retreat from their trajectory.

There are a few special varieties of Axe Armors, including the Double Axe Armor, which throw two axes at a time. A special version, the Red Axe Armor, will reassemble when destroyed (similar to the classic Red Skeleton enemy).
