The Red Axe Armor is an enemy in the Castlevania series. They are armored warriors powered by blood. Some variants cannot be killed by normal means.


Castlevania: Rondo of Blood / Castlevania: Dracula XEdit

In both games they are similar to a normal Axe Armor, except they don't attack by throwing axes and instead they will only charge forward. They first approach and maintain some distance from the player, then they suddenly start swinging their axe overhead and let go in a quick rush forward, culminating with a final vertical whack.

Thanks to Maria's ability to double jump, she will have an easier time dealing with them, but the safest way for Richter to avoid them is to perform a backward somersault as they pass by.

Since they usually stay far away from the player's weapon reach, it is advisable to use ranged attacks to deal with them.

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

A special version was introduced in Portrait of Ruin which behaves pretty much like Red Skeletons. If struck, they will just disassemble and crumble to the ground, only to reform again and continue the battle. Again, much like the Red Skeletons in that game, they can only be destroyed either by allowing Charlotte cast the Sanctuary spell, or by attacking them with the Undead Killer whip.
