Axel is a jock elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. He is the only jock elephant in the series. 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, referring to his trunk.

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 who has yellow-tipped limbs with white nails, as well as yellow on the tip of his trunk and under his ears. The tuft on his tail and the tips of his ears have a jade/emerald color. He has a white, round stomach that hangs out from underneath his clothes, and hair on his forehead which is the same blue color as most of his body. He has circular white eyes with black pupils. His mouth is a large grin that extends from cheek to cheek. He is one of only four elephants whose mouth is not a half-smile on the left side of his face; the others are Cyd, Tia, and Tucker.

In Animal Crossing, Axel's pupils are larger, and the undersides of his ears are the same shade of green as his tail, rather than yellow.

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.
