Trivia Edit

  • During the development of Streets of Rage, his original name was Hawk.
  • Contrary to many beliefs, Axel says "Grand Upper!" when you execute his >,>,B move in both Streets of Rage 2 and Bare Knuckle III.
  • In Streets of Rage 3, perhaps as a homage/in-joke, this was changed to "Bare Knuckle!"
  • Axel and Zan are the only character named in-game by Mr. X.
  • His yellow/black look in Streets of Rage 3 (changed for "gender neutrality") is most likely a homage to Adam Hunter's attire.
  • Is shown sparring with Adam during the ending of Streets of Rage 3/Bare Knuckle III.
  • In the Bare Knuckle II beta, Axel's specials are quite different. His Grand Upper was an uppercut, similar to a Tiger Uppercut from Street Fighter, and his Dragon Wing was replaced with a Hurricane Kick, similar to Ryu or Ken's.
  • Depending on the game, Axel's shoe tongue is either outside the pant, or inside (Streets of Rage 2).
  • Shiva seems to have a personal vendetta towards Axel (shown in White House/City Hall ending).
  • In Project X Zone 2, Axel appears as a playable Solo Unit and attacks with many brawling skills, including his Dragon Smash and Dragon Wing.
