Axel is a jock elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His name is likely a play on XL, as in extra large, which relates to his species. This is further evidenced by his Japanese name, which directly translates to XL. His catchphrase is a play on the word honk.

In New Horizons, Axel has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Axel from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Axel is a dark blue elephant with yellow tipped feet and trunk. He has a paintbrush-tipped tail (like all elephants), with a jade/emerald color. He has a white, round stomach that hangs out from underneath his clothes. The green on the end of his ears is the same green on his tail.

Personality[edit]

Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.

As a jock villager, Axel is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Axel goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
