Ax Battler: A Legend of Golden Axe (アックスバトラー ゴールデンアックス伝説), known simply as Golden Axe in Brazil and released in 1991 for the Sega Game Gear, is the second game in the Golden Axe series to depart from the usual gameplay formula (the first being Golden Axe Warrior, released earlier that year).

Whereas Golden Axe Warrior was a clone of The Legend of Zelda, Ax Battler is inspired by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Unlike other games in the series, Ax Battler starts with few attacks and must earn new ones by fighting at training dojos in each town. The currency of the game world is vials, which also double as a magic weapon.
