These characters are one of the many boss fights in the game. Mario finds them atop Barrel Volcano, while looking for the Sixth Star Piece. These melee wielding enemies are no pushovers as this can be a difficult fight in the game. Since there are five of them, that means five attacks each turn. Using an onslaught of thunder attacks from someone like Mallow can easily weaken them, allowing a finishing blow from Geno or Mario. The rangers also use the help of their giant Axe-shaped flying machine, Blade. Blade can't do anything really except for one attack that is used every so-many turns. The attack in question is the deadly Breaker Beam. This attack pierces defense and attacks the entire party.
- The Axem Rangers are one of the many references or parodies of the Japanese Super Sentai or the US Power Rangers.
