The following is a comment by Sri Sri raamadhEsikaacharyaar
Swaami found right after his commentary of the 7th sloka of
Swami Sri dhEsikar's dhasaavathaara sthOthram, the one
about parasuraamar.  This is in page 39 of Sri dhEsika
sthOthramala, published by LIFCO.

parasuraama avadhaaram maRRa avadhaarangaLaip
pOnRadhanRu.  siRandha Or andhaNaridam
emperumaan than sakthi mudhaliyavaRRaip

Rough translation:
Parasuramar's avadhaaram is different from the other
avathaarams.  Our Lord empowered an outstanding
brahmin and performed many spectacular deeds.  Later,
when our Lord came down to this earth as Sri Rama, He
took back all the godly powers from Parasurama.
Therefore, unlike other avathaarams, Parasurama
avathaaram is not a direct avathaaram of our Lord.
