Personality

Axel Gear is a ruthless figure with nothing else in mind but his own selfish goals, showing no regrets in kidnapping one of the Princesses to blackmail their respective fathers for his own purposes or killing Mifune Sanjulo to get his hands on the secret book of the Rocket Knights.

He is a traitorous being, not only betraying the Kingdom of Zephyrus but also planning a rebellion to overthrow the late ruler of Devotindos Empire--Emperor Devligus Devotindos. His lack of loyalty towards everyone makes him untrustworthy in all regards as he clearly only cares about himself and all the ways he could accomplish his goals, even if it means to harm innocent people or teaming up with other Kingdoms that want to conquer the Kingdom of Zephyrus or Eginasem. Despite his disloyal trait he is very competent in what he is doing which is the main reason why he gets hired.

His rivalry with Sparkster is not to be taken lightly. While the Black Knight was beaten several times it only fueled his desire to grow stronger and finding more and more ways to overthrow the Rocket Knight--Even if it means to use a big variety of gadgets just to have a greater advantage.

But as much as he seems to despise Sparkster he also has no shame in provoking, taunting and stealing the spotlight from him whenever he is able of doing so.

Trivia

  • Axel Gear changes his hair color in each game of the Rocket Knight Series.
  • In Noisy Toys, the 6th Stage of Sparkster (SNES), he was shown playing an pipe organ before the fight against him starts.
  • It is possible to unlock an Axel Gear skin for Sparkster in Rocket Knight if you were able to beat the Arcade Mode on Hard Difficulty.
  • While not being a complete translation error within the game manuals Axel Gear's name has been written differently from time to time, changing from "Axle Gear" to "Axel Gear" and vice-versa.
    • In Japanese "Axel", "Axle" and "Axl" are written in the exact same Katakana characters (アクセル = A Ku Se Ru), something that makes it difficult to say if "Axel", "Axle" or "Axl" was the name Konami was going for.
    • However, with the release of Rocket Knight in 2010 "Axel Gear" has been confirmed to be the official translation of his Japanese name.
  • Even though the "Secret Book of Rocket Knights", other members of "Rocket Knights" and "Black Knights" were mentioned within the Manuals (the latter are in the Overseas Manuals only) they never played a role within the games themselves.
