"DiVE Armor Axl" Joins Rockman X DiVE This Week

Following DiVE Armor Zero and the subsequent tease by Keisuke Mizuno, it didn't take long for DiVE Armor Axl to join the roster. And per tradition DiVE Armor tradition, Axl is themed after his level 110 armor set.

Find all the details after the break!

DiVE Armor Axl's first active skill is Burst Laser. It unleashes a beam of light that will damage all enemies in its path and can go through terrain. One of the modifier chips will increase the laser's width by 100%

His second active skill is A-shaped Strafing. Axl shoots his A-shaped wings to deal damage to the target, the second stage of the skill will release an attack that does full screen damage to all enemies on the screen.

While the trailer doesn't make it clear, it appears that, when playing PVP, Axl can use this skill to teleport to the target's location after marking them. It's similar to what ProtoMan.EXE or ViA can do.

He can get a variety of buffs and skills like HP healing or the ability to render the target immobile.

This week the next installment of the Guild Boss event takes place too. The main rewards are memories of Gaea Armor X and the S rank saber Shark Toothed Anchor and Copy X (Second From) card.

One of the trademarks of the Raid Boss/Guild Boss event has always been the apparition of a new Sigma incarnation from the Rockman X games. From Wolf Sigma to Hell Sigma, players had the chance to team-up to defeat six unique Sigma final boss forms, sadly is not the case this time and the development team has chosen to use Copy X who was already a boss in the event The Savior Has Come.

If the roadmap still rings true, you can expect a new character next week. It was previously confirmed that August will have four new characters and DiVE Armor Axl is the third one.

Look forward to it!


  1. That just looks like Axl with more detail... Like ver.Ke or something. I guess he already had a Ke design though.

    1. Actually, he didn't have a Ke. design yet. What you could've seen wasn't official as far as I remember.

    2. Actually, Axl DID have a ver Ke. It was in poster art, not concept art like the others.

      But, just like the other ver Ke's and this eye sore, it had lots of lines on it and was a very busy design for the sake of it.

  2. Aaaaaaaaaaahhh! I'm so happy...! He is my favorite MMX character, he seriously deserves more love, my sweet "shoot first, and don't even ask questions later c:<"baby!!!

    Personally, I like his design. Sure, it's overly charged, but sometimes, something cool looking and extra is enjoyable. I do love me my super hammy and exaggeratedly cheesy robot anime and games; Mazinger Z, Gundam,Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan, Voltron, Getter Robo, Magic Knights Reyearth, Code Geass, Eureka Seven, Aldnoah Zero, etc etc, they all get the Ham™ to eleven at times, and give the mechas exaggerated looking upgrades just because the heck of it.

    I really like that his wings are a single A made of two Xs, and they even kept his cat ear looking spikes, it's one of my favorite things from his design, as I find its a nice reference to his trouble making personality. The lines in the very.Ke designs remind me of Darling on the FranXX, and as cheesy that anime is, I truly enjoyed it, as it bought me back to the classic robot anime that were so, so extra. Sometimes you just need to Enjoy The Ham and Cheese Sandwich ™, y' know?

    In fact, I believe XDiVE should take any given opportunity to become as cheesy at it can possibly become, as it's just a non-canonical mobile game with quirky characters getting into quirky situations, were the canon cast are given the same treatment (as in, we get to see them in quirky situations, with them not needing to get serious or anything), and the plot is just a kinda interesting thing, but framed with a completely non-serious narrative. If there's a place were the franchise should get hammy, it's here, throw ALL of the ham, seriously. There's already truckloads of fanservice, and even a couple of funny little alts, so I say just go ahead and go b o n k e r s.

    Because I rather enjoy All The Ham™ in this innocuous, non-canonical mobile game, than for any amount of that ham to be anywhere in the main series. There's a time and place for everything, after all, as just as much as I revel in the dumb fun of DiVE, I would be equally pissed off if they tried to pull even a fifth of the stunts they do here in the main games.
