Are you talking about Spike Rose? Or the dumb Axl kid?

If you're talking about Spike, he's one of my favorite mavericks. :P If not my favorite..

Uh, no.. It's AXLE. AXL is the name of the new character in MMX7. You probably haven't played MegaMan X5, or you'd know that Axle the Red is one of the mavericks in that particular game. Yes. I know it's a strange maverick-name. But so is "The Skiver", and "Duff McWhalen".

Anyways, yeah. I think Axle the Red is one of the more interesting Mavericks in the X series. Though, to be honest, he doesn't seem to fit in with the whole "Maverick" idea... since he looks more like a beefed-up PlantMan, rather than a Plant-like creature robot. I would think that he'd at least have a stem that comes out of the ground, instead of legs like X or Zero.

All that aside, yeah. Axle's one of my favorite characters from X5... He's very elegant and fights with a thorny plant whip. He can even create clones of himself. That's a pretty useful technique right there.

If only people would call him his japanese name; Spike Rose, then we wouldn't have this Axl/Axle problem...

"Duff McWhalen" is Tidal Whale, "The Skiver" is Spiral Pegasus, "Dark Dizzy" is Dark Necrobat, "Mattrex" is Burn Dinorex, "Izzy Glow" is Shining Firefly, "Grizzly Slash" is Crescent Grizzly, and "Squid Adler" is Bolt Kraken.

I think the Japanese names sound more traditional, so I use them.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's:

Axle the Red = Spike Rosered

Grizzly Slash = Crescent Grizzly

Duff McWhalen = Tidal Makkoeen

Squid Adler = Volt Kraken

Izzy Glow = Shining Hotarunicus

Dark Dizzy = Dark Necrobat

The Skiver = Spiral Pegacion

Mattrex = Burn Dinorex

"Whale" here in America... "Makkoeen" down in Japan. :D Though, I'm not sure I've spelled Makkoeen right...

Stay with us, dude. Once again, we're talking about AXLE. One of 8 mavericks from X5... not AXL... the new dude in X7.

Did anyone notice that the name of the Mavericks in X5 are the names of the former members of Guns N' Roses? You got Axle the Red that was a rose and the lead singer of GN'R was Axle Rose. Then you have Grizzly Slash, which was the guitarist. And so on and so forth.

Yeah. In fact, I'd be surprised to hear somebody who DOESN'T know that. People have been talking a lot about that since X5 came out. Most of the reviews will say something about it. I, personally, have never heard, or seen Guns and Roses, so I wouldn't know who all the members are or what their hit songs were.

Oh wow, I use english translations of the animal parts of the names.. I must be wrong. :lol: Yes, I know those are the 'true' japanese names, but I use the english of the animals name, to make it more traditional, as I said.

Excluding Boomer Kuwanger, anyway.

He is pretty easy to beat with the X buster or his weakness. It is very easy to evade Rosered. Thats why he is an ok maverick.


"The Spirits of War are Within Me"

Built to resemble the Native Americans of centuries ago, Tomahawk Man follows up his basic programming to be knowledgeable and wise about their beliefs as well. His original function was akin to a ranger of the plains but the destruction of the land made him bitter about the lack of respect given by outsiders. His weapon of choice is his silver tomahawk, an axe head grafted onto the end of his right arm. He can use it to fire axe blades of energy at his opponents, and can also pull shrapnel feathers from his headdress to throw like daggers. Tomahawk Man's priorities sometimes get mixed up -- he'll fire a warning shot at someone chopping down a tree before an attacking enemy. His dislike of those that would destroy nature can extend to his fellow Master brothers, but he tries to make his dislike known vocally instead of by action.

There was potential for a storyline involving Axle the Red in X5 (read your manual on him) but no go (unless you can read Axle's bio as a tip to defeat Sigma's second form).

I know what you're talking about, Sigma's giant form's weakness is the special weapon you get from Axle the red. But for Zero, it the special attack you get from Duff mcwhalen.

Zero's always gotta be different. :rolleyes:

As for Spike Rose, yes, he would've had a cool seperate storyline, in a sense, if Capcom ever had good storylines for Megaman games..

Actually, Zero's "Soul Body" attack (which he gets from Axle) is the same as X's Spike Rope.

All these people that refer to them by their japanese names make me mad. Not trying to sound racist or anything, but this isn't Japan.

I don't use the actual Japanese names. I use traditional MMX names. What's the problem with that? I refuse to call Spike "Axle the Red". It's the stupidest name in the history of forever.

I don't like it when people use the actual japanese names either, they're horrendous to type.
