==Strength and abilities==
 
The Axeman is faster than he is in ''[[Resident Evil 5]]''; he is able to swing his cumbersome weapon much quicker and run after his prey while swinging his axe at the same time. He is also demonstrates hugely enhanced strength as he is able to swing his axe with enough force to shatter stone and cleave straight through large metal objects like cars with virtually no resistance, as well as being able to hurl his axe several meters through the air with a high amount of accuracy and enough power to get stuck in a steel tank. However, his endurance is weaker and although he can withstand small caliber shots from handguns and sub-machine guns, he cannot be killed with a single headshot like common undead. It seems to get killed only by suffering massive body damage, e.g. when caught in a large explosion, or completely losing his head.

Axeman - Afterlife

The Axemen are mutant Undead known for their towering height, impressive agility and their use of large axes. They appear to have been deliberately created as human bio-weapons, unlike the more typical Undead.

History Edit

Axemen were created at Umbrella Prime, a top-secret bioweapons research facility located in Siberia. This facility was initially making bioweapons for international customers before the global T-virus pandemic. With Red Queen ordered to assist in the extermination of mankind, these bioweapons were released out into the wild to assist.[1]

The first known Axeman encounter took place in Los Angeles several years into the outbreak. A single Axeman made his way to the Citadel Correctional Facility, where Undead were aware of survivors. Using his axe, he was able to break down the main gate. Moving into the prison showers, he sliced survivor Kim Yong in half with the axe and knocked out Alice with a side blow to the head. He would then be incapacitated himself by Claire Redfield, who fired a shotgun at close-range. Upon reawakening, he threw his axe at the survivors as they made their way into a tunnel, but failed to hit anyone. A final shotgun blast to the head killed him.[2]

Two more Axermen were encountered by Alice and Ada Wong as they ventured through the New York stage of Umbrella Prime's testing floor. Their axes became lodged in the frame of a taxi cab in an attempt to kill Alice. Alice and Wong killed the pair by shooting the gas tank to cause an explosion.
