The Royal Castle (王城), also known as The Palace Gates and To the Temple Balcony, is the fifth stage from Golden Axe, the Southwood Kingdom castle that was taken over by Death Adder. By using the "Fiend's Path", the heroes get close to the castle and face Death Adder in the throne room.

In the arcade version this is the final stage (shown as Stage 9 in-game due to Bonus Stages being also counted), but in other versions it is followed by the Dungeon. In the PlayStation 2 version it was extended in three stages, Stage 6 being outside the castle, Stage 7 inside, and Stage 8 being the battle against Death Adder in the throne room.
