~ Axelay

Axelay is the main fighter of the famous scrolling shooter video game, Axelay, which is a science fiction side scrolling shooter in the same vein as other Konami titles such as Salamander and Gradius. The game features both horizontal and vertically scrolling stagess, and allows the player to choose three different weapon types, which increase in number as he or she progresses through the game. Canonically, Axelay also appears in Airforce Delta Strike.

Success in Axelay is closely linked to your choice of weapon with which to tackle the various stages of the game. As you progress through the six stages you will receive a greater selection of weaponry, make sure you take the best equipment for the job! You only have 3 slots which can take one weapon each, and will lose a weapon if you are hit while using it, so a balanced payload is essential to ensure you have some alternative fire-power to fall back on.

In Otomedius Excellent, Gesshi Hanafuuma's riding viper is the Axelay Viper.
