The Axem Rangers are a team of axe-wielding robots found in Super Mario RPG. They are the fourth of the Smithy Gang members in the game and are battled to gain the sixth Star Piece.
The Axem Rangers were created in Smithy's Factory. This fighting force was sent after the Star Piece hidden within Barrel Volcano. They swiped it just as Mario was about to retrieve it. They then retreated to Smithy's flying ship, the Blade, in order to bring the Star Piece back to Smithy. But Mario followed them and battled them aboard the Blade.
At first, the Axem Rangers bragged and taunted Mario's group. But as each of them lost their HP, they made up excuses not to battle. After all were defeated, they pulled back and manned the Blade's Breaker Beam in a last-ditch attempt to destroy Mario and his friends. But Mario still won. The Blade went down with flames, and the Axem Rangers with it.
Despite the destruction of the original Axem Rangers, weaker Machine-Made versions of them were mass-produced at Smithy's Factory until it was shut down.
There are five members, each with their own distinct strengths and weaknesses.
