—Axol to Meggy, SMG4: Final Hours

Axol is a modern major character in the SMG4 series. He debuted in Season 9 as the false main antagonisnt of the Anime Arc.

He is the world's greatest manga artist, born in Inkopolis where he was bullied for his passion for anime, so he moved into Japan where he rose to fame. He is armed with a magic pen called the Inkweaver, that he used to bring drawings to life for a temporary amount of time. He eventually met SMG4 and his friends, and joined them to convince Peach Toadstool to lift the anime ban and later defeat Francis on Anime Island.

He then moved into the Mushroom Kingdom where he joins his friends in multiple adventures.

Like Saiko Bichitaru, Toad, Wario, Waluigi, and Bowser, he hasn't made many appearances in Season 10 and was demoted to a recurring character due to the presence of returning characters like Swagmaster6969696969, Chris Gordman, Dr. Eggman, Sonic the Hedgehog and SMG3 as well as new characters like Hal Monitor and JubJub Boopkins.

From SMG4: Deleted to SMG4: A Totally Normal S̷͍͖͉̙͚͎̑̃̿͑̆̇̚͠M̸͇͇̦̮̌̿Ğ̴̫̗̖͎͔̳4̶̞͇̰̎̀́̚ Episode, he, along with Bowser and Shroomy, were the remaining surviving members of SMG4's Gang, as others (apart from Mario) were sent to the Internet Graveyard until they were rescued by Mario. As of SMG4: The Internet Graveyard, the lack of a proper time perspective in the Internet Graveyard, the length of time spent in it, and his Inkweaver being broken has caused him to be mentally insane. Not only that he had also got himself a scar. However, since SMG4: Food Wars, he has recovered from his insanity, but still unable to use his pen due to it being broken.


He first appeared in SMG4: The Japan Trip. He is a famous manga artist living in Japan. He wields a magic pen called Inkweaver which can animate the things he draws to life. He uses it to amuse fans and stated he will use it to defeat the Anime Secret Service in the end of SMG4: The Japan Trip.

It is revealed on SMG4: The Mario Showdown that he has some relationships to the Inklings due to how he looked at Meggy and his mention to his place of birth which is Inkopolis.

In SMG4: The Splatfest Incident, Axol was accused of abducting numerous Inklings so that he could continue bringing his anime characters to life, but in SMG4: The Inkling Disappearances, he was revealed to be innocent and also kidnapped.

It is revealed that Francis had stolen the Inkweaver and was having his followers torment Axol, who tried to explain that Francis was using them. Presumably, Francis had gone mad with power, though he still expressed the desire to have waifus, more specifically an entire island of them.

After the events of the Anime Arc, he has become part of the main cast, since he will fill the gap since Desti's death in SMG4: World War Mario and was featured on the new channel banner on the channel.


Axol was born and hailed in Inkopolis. During his childhood, Axol can be seen drawing some anime characters. The present Axol stated that Inkopolis was a harsh place for anime lovers as two Inklings can be seen laughing at young Axol for drawing anime as for the fact that they hated anime.

After he grew up and became a manga artist, he moved to Akihabara and become a popular celebrity across Japan.

The Anime Arc

SMG4: The Japan Trip

When a Monty Mole confused Saiko for one of Axol's creations, he explained that Axol is a manga artist and showed him to her. Fishy Boopkins seemed to recognize Axol and wanted to talk to him. When he, along with Saiko, SMG4 and Bob Bobowski finally reached him, they explained to him that anime was banned in the Mushroom Kingdom, to which Axol replied that he would make anime legal again.

SMG4: The Mario Showdown

Axol leaves Japan, with Saiko, SMG4, Bob, and Boopkins, but the airport of the Mushroom Kingdom doesn't allow entry, because Saiko appears to be an anime girl, but Axol creates some anime girls and the guards chase them.

Meanwhile, the group can return to the Mushroom Kingdom, and they came to a hiding place to make a plan.

SMG4: Mario Saves Anime

Axol and the others finally reach Peach and present her a show with Fishy Boopkins singing about how great anime is. Peach declares anime awesome and proceeds to lift the anime ban. Axol then leaves the heroes and heads back to Japan.

SMG4: The Splatfest Incident

While Axol doesn't physically appear, he is mentioned by the characters and there are even flashbacks of him. Due to the claw marks and an anime DVD in Meggy's house, Mario, Luigi, Tari and Desti suspect Axol of being responsible for Meggy's disappearance.

SMG4: The Inkling Disappearances

Mario, Luigi, Tari, and Desti still suspect Axol for Meggy's disappearance, and when they hear the news of more Inklings disappearance, they believe Axol may have kidnapped them as well. However, the end of the episode reveals that Axol is not the one who has kidnapped the Inklings but was abducted as well and his Inkweaver is in the hands of the Mastermind.

SMG4: Mario and the Experiment

It is revealed that Francis of the Anime Cartel is the true culprit responsible for the abductions, as well as stealing Axol's trusty Inkweaver to make his very own island of waifus. Axol tries to tell Francis to reconsider his actions but gets choked by Francis' "Mewtwo" before Francis and his anime minions leave. Later that episode, Axol is seen being spanked by two Anime Cartel members but is then saved by Meggy and Desti and explains to them that he would never do such a thing as kidnapping his own friends. Shortly before the end of the episode, Axol finds out that Francis has already gotten the Inkweaver to 70% to summon Super Saiyan Goku. He tries to fight them, but gets taken out by Francis' Goku in one punch and then captured again.

SMG4: World War Mario

As Mario, Luigi, SMG4, Tari and Saiko come to save Meggy , Desti and Axol, Axol and Desti are still chained and see Meggy in the Ink Zuccer 2K. Francis gets excited about finally pushing her in the Zuccer to extract her ink and then pushes the lever from 50% to 100%. Fortunately, Francis is distracted by Mario's team finally approaching his base and leaves the room, and Axol manages to free himself by taunting Mewtwo by saying that he would rather choose Magikarp. Mewtwo gets infuriated, grabs him and throws him towards the Zuccer's control panel, occasionally breaking the chains which Axol takes advantage of. Mewtwo attempts to attack Axol who continues to taunt him, but Axol dodges him and makes him break right into the control panel, which then explodes and kills the Pokémon. The Ink Zuccer 2K then stops extracting Meggy's ink, saving her life. Axol proceeds to free Desti as well with the key that Mewtwo had just dropped. Later, Axol succeeds to take his Inkweaver back from Francis, which, however, Francis manages to steal again.

SMG4: Final Hours

Axol doesn’t do much during the beginning of the episode. After Francis creates 100 False Sepiroths, Axol tries using paper shurikens to fight them, but he fails to hit them. He then gets hit into another room. While Francis is trying to use the Inkweaver without ink, Axol tells him that it’s out of ink. He then chases him around a bit. However, after a bunch of people attacking Francis, the Ink Zuccer dumps an immense amount of ink onto Francis, charging Inkweaver to 100%, which Axol immediately realizes. He’s next seen (aside from some shots which have him not doing anything) attacking Francis. He grabs the Inkweaver. However, it’s out of ink. Mario tells him to draw the characters already, but he tells him that there isn’t any more ink. Meggy tells him to use the Ink Zuccer to charge it. Axol is reluctant at first, but Meggy tells him that if it isn’t done, everyone dies. Axol turns it up to an unknown amount, probably above 100%. After the Ink Zuccer has been destroyed, with above 100% zuccing power, it has more than enough ink to charge Inkweaver by 100%. Axol uses Inkweaver to summon Shaggy. As Goku is about to self destruct, Axol realizes what’s happening. After Shaggy gets the Inklings, everyone realizes that he forgot Meggy, and Axol tells him to get Meggy. He succeeds and Axol among the others are shocked to see Meggy's new look. He is last seen counseling Meggy at Desti's funeral.

SMG4: Mario Works at Mcdonalds

Axol reappears near the end of the video where he is enjoying his meal, only to be interrupted three times by Mario's screaming while Ronald McDonald attacks him. He uses his InkWeaver to summon Colonel Sanders and have a battle with Ronald McDonald, only to kick him in the Pingas and causing him to scream in pain. Afterward, Mario thanks Axol for helping him and asks if Mario wants to dine in with him and he agrees. Then Colonel Sanders vanishes after his victory much like how Axol temporarily draws anime characters.

SMG4: A Day In The Life Of Everyone

Axol is revealed to have left Akihabara and is struggling to find a house in the Mushroom Kingdom. He finds a house rented out by the Heavy Weapons Guy, but is rejected from living there due to his excess anime replicas. The house is set on fire and Axol is still struggling to find a place to live. It also turns out he's burned down every other house he's been to.

SMG4: Treasure Hunt With The Bois and SMG4: Mario and The Lost City...

Axol allows Mario, Fishy Boopkins, and Bob to accompany him on his treasure hunt to the Lost City of Gold, where his Inkweaver is stolen by a tribe of Teletubbies, who are revealed to use it to make their own golden creations.

SMG4: War Of The Fat Italians 2019

Axol appeared in Round 10 and started by creating Ryu. SMG4 countered with Kermit The Frog. Ryu, however, beat him down. Mario then tried his creation but it naturally failed. As Axol celebrated, suddenly, Kermit defeated him, shocking Axol and letting SMG4 take the round. He later sings along with the rest of the characters in the rap battle.

SMG4: Boys vs Girls

He competed in a war alongside Mario and Bowser against Meggy, Saiko, and Tari at Shroomy's summer camp.

SMG4 Christmas 2019: Mario Alone

He, alongside Mario's other friends, left him alone after he overslept due to not wanting to miss their trip to Miami. Desperate, later on, from being alone, Mario used an actual salamander as Axol's replacement. He later returns to beat up Wario and Waluigi for being home invaders, in this case by summoning Ryu with his inkweaver.

SMG4: The Grand Festival

He alongside his friends were in an Asian-themed location enjoying the New Year. He was part of the group that took part in a carnival game hosted by Swagmaster69696969696 and Chris Gordman, whom both needed the cash to go on vacation. He later wins a stuffed toy that Tari unintentionally stole from him. The episode ends with him and his friends along with the guards enjoying the view of the fireworks.

SMG4: Mario School Club

He appears trying to suggest a school club upon finding out that Mario trespassed a school just to find fellow club members. He was the only person in the group to not have a club shown in the video and although he suggested a volleyball club, Bob rejected it because if he had to do another physical sports club, he would scream.

SMG4 Movie: Meggy's Destiny

He witnessed Meggy's grand attempt to take part and win in the final Splatfest. At the lowest point of her when she believed that her pride was her downfall, Axol encouraged her to relax and let go.

SMG4: Mario The Supreme Leader

He is first seen as part of the Mushroom Kingdom Royal Marching Band announcing the arrival of Mario, who was a tyrannical king of Mario Land, to the tune of Astromania. He later was part of a successful coup that took down Mario's guards and was prepared to fight the civilians when Peach Toadstool appeared to restore things back to normal. He then collapses with the rest of the SMG4 gang when he just approached them like nothing bad happened.

The YouTube Arc

Axol played a much smaller role in the YouTube Arc compared to the Anime Arc. He is first seen drawing anime in SMG4: Mario Gets【Woke】 when Mario sends him away using an Oof Button summoned from the YouTube Remote, claiming "nothing of value was lost". SMG4: The Internet Graveyard reveals that he was sucked into the Internet Graveyard with his Inkweaver being destroyed. He tried to get to the Starbucks in the dimension but the guardians denied him entry. With no way of knowing how much time has passed, he became insane.

Three weeks later, he came across Mario and Luigi. In his insane state, he attacked them but was slapped out of it when an army of Ugandan Knuckles appeared and he repelled them with Tide Pods. He explained his situation to the brothers and they helped each other get back to the Starbucks.

When they returned to the guardians just to be told he was denied entry, Mario fixed their toilet, allowing them entry. However, the fix was undone and the guardians tried seizing them. Fortunately, Mario managed to contact SMG4 to save them in time via making Harambe a relevant meme again. He is last seen on the roof of Peach's Castle, talking to Luigi and SMG4 about Harambe.

In SMG4: War Of The Fat Italians 2020, Luigi and Melony are challenged to survive watching through his Two Piece anime for as long as possible. Eventually, Luigi gave in due to the extreme romance of the show, causing SMG3's Gang to win that challenge.

Other appearances

The events of SMG4: My Mario Academia were revealed to be an anime created by him, much to everyone's disgust. In Season 10, he appeared to help Mario fight Papa John in SMG4: Mario Runs Out Of Toilet Paper and again at Meggy's housewarming party in SMG4: Meggy Moves In.

Additionally, he made a cameo appearance in the opening advertisement for the Japanese media company, Crunchyroll, in SMG4: The Day SMG4 Posted Cringe.


Axol appears to be an anthropomorphic axolotl, an aquatic salamander. He wears a blue long-sleeved shirt, navy blue pants, and a belt that carries ink grenades. His weapon of choice is an Inkweaver, a large pen with a red claw on top. During his time in the Internet Graveyard, his clothes became ragged and torn and he gained a red scar over his right eye.


Axol is a famous manga artist. Despite being popular, he is not highly prideful, but he is very friendly and helpful towards others, including SMG4 and friends, whom he helped in making anime and manga legalized again in the Mushroom Kingdom.

When being kidnapped by Francis, he becomes very "remorseful" for what he did, by saying that he is responsible for Francis stealing his magic pen.

Axol really loves to share with everyone, as he shared his food with Mario in SMG4: Mario Works at Mcdonalds, However, he is rather insecure as shown in SMG4: Treasure Hunt With The Bois.

SMG4: Mario Works at Mcdonalds shows that he hates being interrupted when he is eating, being annoyed at Ronald McDonald attacking Mario causing him to create a replica of Colonel Sanders to fight Ronald off.

After going insane in SMG4: The Internet Graveyard, he became obsessed with his new show "Two Piece" which apparently nobody aside from Luigi and Melony watched because it was so bad.



War Of The Fat Italians


Meta Runner


  • Axol is the first and only original character introduced in 2019.
  • Axol is the second new original character introduced during an arc (The Anime Arc), the first being Tari in The Waluigi Arc.
  • Axol using non-violence to persuade Princess Peach to lift the anime ban mirrors how Mahatma Gandhi used non-violence to get independence from the British in 1947. However, Axol had to do so by sneaking around the A.S.S. agents, while Mario, the Anime Cartel and the others were forced to silence them.
  • Like Meggy, he originated from Inkopolis.
    • Despite not being an Inkling himself, this would actually make sense. This is because Inkopolis does not only have Inkling residents, but also because other aquatic creatures such as jellyfish and crustaceans appear there considering axolotls are aquatic creatures.
  • As Axol used to live in Japan, he is implied to be capable of speaking Japanese, thus making him one of the few characters to be bilingual, as with Mario and Luigi (as the latter two speak in Italian).
  • Axol's name is a pun of the species Axolotl, a species of an aquatic salamander native to Mexico, known for their regenerative abilities (they are capable of regrowing multiple body parts throughout their lives, even parts like the brain).
  • Axol is not a vegetarian, as he is seen eating a hamburger at McDonalds.
  • As of SMG4: A Day In The Life Of Everyone, Axol is trying to find a place in the Mushroom Kingdom.
  • Axol makes a cameo appearance as a virtual mirror avatar in the first episode of Meta Runner, META RUNNER - Season 1 Episode 1: Wrong Warp.
  • He has a knack for nicknames, referring to Meggy and Desti as "Fish Girls" (Beanie Human Girl after Meggy transformed into a human), Mario as "Red Tomato", Luigi as "Pickle", Tari as "Duck Nerd", Bob as "Trash Bag-san", and Fishy Boopkins as "Green Frog".
    • This is most likely that Axol just met them, and didn't get to know their real names.
  • It was revealed by SMG4 that Axol was supposed to be the main villain of the Anime Arc, that he was suppose to unban anime to finally take over the world with his anime army, but him and Kevin decide that Francis will be the main villain instead of Axol.
  • As of SMG4: Mario School Club, he developed a fear of Shroomy due to the latter's hunting habits.
  • If you listen closely, Axol speaks with an Australian accent, despite living in Japan for ages.
  • In Season 10, he appears much less than he did the prior season, with only seven speaking roles.
  • His memories showed that he wore eyeglasses as a child.
  • Axol's scarred eye looks visually similar to that of the scarred eyes of Kratos from the God of War franchise and Weiss Schnee from the webseries, RWBY.
