This version of Axel uses six buttons and KOF styled sprites. His stats are really high, making him hard to take down. He is the vessel for all of Shazzo's creations and Actarus's own Peter Griffin and Bender. In fact, almost all of Actarus's characters are edits of this one.
A better version of Axel Stone has been made by Chongwang. His Sprites comes from Streets of Rage 2. He plays like a traditional Beat-Em-Up character instead of a fighter. He can pick up weapons, use power moves at the cost of life, and even comes with the intro and ending ripped straight out of Streets of Rage 2.
Splode's version also uses sprites from Streets of Rage 2. He plays more conventional compared to Chon Wang's version. This was Splode's first character, and the only one that's not a conversion from another game.
