Axel is a jock elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. His first appearance is in Animal Crossing, but he was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World. He later appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk. His name is a play on "XL", as in "extra large". His initial phrase is a play on the word "honk". He appeared on the cover of Animal Crossing: Let's Go To The City for PAL areas.



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.


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

As a jock villager, Axel will have an interest in physical fitness and sports making him appear competitive when talking to other villagers and the player. He will, despite his competitiveness, appear friendly towards the player but he may offend other villagers, usually snooty or cranky villagers, when he criticizes their fitness and physical appearance, usually making them walk off angry or upset. He will find it difficult to talk to lazy villagers, who have an opposite choice of lifestyle - appearing relaxed and calm, with no interest in physical fitness and an interest in food.
