Axel (Axel, Akuseru?), is also referred to as "Flurry of Dancing Flames" (Winds of fire dance, Odoru Hi no Kaze?) who has the Assassin Nobodies under his control,. Utilizes a pair of chakram as his weapons, Axel is maniuplate fire in his attacks. Nomura designed Axel on a similar concept as Reno from Final Fantasy VII. Nomura wanted to see what it would be like to have a similar character in a different world and role. Axel is voiced by Keiji Fujiwara in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts II and Re: Chain of Memories, while he is voiced by Quinton Flynn in the English versions of both games.

In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Axel pretends to join with Larxene and Marluxia in their plan to seize control of the Organization. To gain their trust, he assassinates Vexen when ordered by Marluxia. He later derails the plans by setting Naminé free so that she can reveal to Sora the truth about how she manipulated his memory. Eventually, Axel confronts Marluxia, prepared to destroy him. Marluxia uses Naminé as a shield to keep Axel at bay, though Axel resolves to go through her. When Sora makes a sudden appearance, Marluxia vanishes with Naminé, leaving Sora to fight Axel. Sora defeats Axel, after which he states the existence of their relation before vanishing. After Marluxia is defeated by Sora, Axel enlists the aid of the Riku Replica to get rid of Zexion in Castle Oblivion's basement levels.

In Kingdom Hearts II, Axel, per orders, attempts to either rescue Roxas from DiZ's virtual Twilight Town or kill him. Despite Axel's efforts, Roxas merges with Sora. Later, acting separately from the Organization, Axel kidnaps Kairi to bait Sora to him. However, Saïx takes her away so the Organization can use her to fuel Sora's anger. During a visit to Twilight Town, Saïx warns Sora that Axel desires to turn him into a Heartless. Axel appears after the Heartless invasion of Hollow Bastion to Sora, and informs him that Organization XIII has been using him to get hearts. He then apologizes for getting Kairi involved. Axel later finds Sora in a pathway to the World That Never Was and chooses to fight Nobodies with him. The numbers get overwhelming and Axel performs a suicide attack to save Sora. Fading away, Axel apologizes for kidnapping Kairi and asks Sora to rescue her. When asked what he was trying to do, Axel admits he wanted to see Roxas, who made him feel like he had a heart, and Sora made him feel the same way. With the last of his strength, Axel opens an entrance to the World That Never Was. In Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Axel posthumously contacts Roxas's consciousness following his ambiguous battle with Sora, reflecting on old memories and sharing one final conversation on the mysteries of the heart with him before fading away; a teardrop is seen falling as the two former Nobodies disappear.

A jump in figure skating which takes off of a forward outside edge, rotates one and a half revolutions in the air, and then is landed on the back inside edge of the opposite foot used to jump from.

Also, the hardest jump in figure skating (hardest single, double, and triple). No quad axels have yet been landed.

This jump is highly associated with mind games, and instills fear in many of skaters. Very fun to land, but taking off is usually the hardest part!

named after Axel Paulson.


Ususally once a skater lands an axel, they are accepted into the political world known as figure skating. It is a brutal world, you are no one, even in little USFSA clubs... you are no one unless you have your axel...
I landed my first axel today!

I hate the axel.

Make the axel your best friend.

Okay, now I want three axels in a row.

A girly guy who is over dramatic, super clingy, and doesn't have any sense of personal hygene. And is obsessed with going to girls slumber parties, for the mani-pedis only. :)
Did he really just paint his toe nails pink?

Yep, he's an axel!
