Axel Gear is Sparkster's rival and a major antagonist in the Rocket Knight video game series. He was taken in by an old fellow named Mifune Sanjulo. Mifune taught Axel Gear the ways of being a Rocket Knight. Mifune then adopted another child, Sparkster. Axel was jealous of Sparkster, as Mifune always liked him best. After years of hate, Axel finally killed Master Mifune and stole a secret book of Rocket Knight techniques. With it, he brought together the Black Knights, Rocket Knights that went rogue. Sparkster and Axel clashed in an epic battle, which Sparkster emerged the victor. Sparkster banished Axel from the kingdom, and he went into hiding.

Axel later reemerged as an agent of the Devotindos Empire. He assisted the Empire in their invasion of the Kingdom of Zephyrus, kidnapping Princess Sherry to blackmail the King of Zephyrus into surrender. However, the Devotindos Empire was repelled by Sparkster and Axel was defeated by the Rocket Knight himself again.
