Each Axie present in the game has unique features and a genetic markup that changes the in-game value.

In future, it is expected that these Axies will only transform into legendaries. The Axies can also be used for the generation of a yield from breeding and battling then.
When it comes to scarcity, the Quad Mystic is a type of an Axie which was purchased by Delphi. It is one of the three Axies ever made, out of the total 150,000 Axies that are to be minted in the game.
