Battle Axe is an enemy in Salamander (MSX).


Battle Axes appear as robotic drones. They come in formations similarly to Fans or Bellbergs, moving forward and then stopping to move vertically and shoot at the player before leaving the screen. Like the other formation enemies, they leave a Power Capsule when all members of the formation are destroyed.


  • While by itself the name "Battle Axe" is appropriately descriptive of a weapon often used during combat; keeping the trend of naming enemies after rock music bands and songs in the MSX port of Salamander, it probably is also a reference to "Battle Axe", an instrumental theme by American heavy metal band Quiet Riot appearing in their 1983 album Metal Health.
