'''Axel''' is a boss from , also known as ''[[Rayman 2: The Great Escape]]'' and is the Guardian of [[the Sanctuary of Water and Ice]].

He attacks by throwing icicles at is a boss character from ''[[Rayman2]], who has to get to him by shooting at ''. He is the Guardian of [[Purple LumFour Masks of Polokus|the first mask of Polokus]]s in the air. Once there, Rayman then shoots a giant icicle, causing it to fall on to Axel's head, defeating him.
Despite being a boss ==In ''[[Rayman 2]]''==Unlike most bosses in [[Rayman (series)|the series]], Axel only takes one hit to defeat who tries to kill yoube destroyed, he is not entirely evil as he is just guarding the Sanctuary making him less powerful than some of Water and Ice and the other Guardians. He attacks by throwing icicles at [[Four Masks of Polokus|1st MaskRayman]], which is one who has to get to him by swinging across a series of [[Purple Lum]]s in the four masks to awaken air. Once close enough, [[Rayman]] shoots an overhanging icicle with his [[Polokusmagic fist]]. , causing it to fall on to Axel guards the 1st Mask under Polokus's orders so that it not put 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 wrong usefountain 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 [[Four Masks of Polokus|the first mask]]. When Axel attacks [[Rayman]], he is ultimately acting under the instructions of [[Polokus]].
Like the other Guardians, Axel's name is not given in the PlayStation version. Axel does not appear in ''[[Rayman 2 Forever]]'', the Game Boy Color version of the game; neither do any of the other bosses.
Axel's French name, '''Aglagl''', is an onomatopoeia for the feeling of cold.
