== Role in the games ==
==Role in the games==Unlike most bosses in most video games[[Rayman (series)|the series]], Axel only takes one hit to be destroyed, making him less powerful than some of the other Guardians. He attacks by throwing icicles at [[Rayman]], who has to get to him by swinging across a series of [[Purple Lum]]s in the air. Once close enough, Rayman shoots an overhanging icicle with his [[magic fist]], causing it to fall on to Axel's head, defeating him in a single hit. In most versions of the game he explodes and evaporates into the air with a roar of rage; in the PlayStation version, the icicle sticks on his head and he slowly sinks into the fountain below him, where he dissolves.
Axel does not appear to be an inherently evil being; like the other Guardians, he was created by [[Polokus]] to guard [[Four Masks of Polokus|his four magical Masks]] and prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. The PlayStation version of the game contains additional cutscenes in which [[Rayman]] engages in dialogue with the Guardians Axel, [[Umber]] and [[Foutch]]; in the conversation with Axel, it is revealed that he regards Rayman as a thief who threatens the safety of the first Mask. When Axel attacks Rayman, he is ultimately acting under the instructions of Polokus.
