By applying AxesStyle -> Arrowheads[{0.0, 0.05} we can make the appearance of the axis with an arrow at the extremities as follow :

Plot[1/x^5, {x, -20, 20}, AxesStyle -> Arrowheads[{0.0, 0.05}], 
     ImagePadding -> None]

Now, I want to make the axis thick at the same time.

The solutions I found use an AxesStyle rule, but I don't know how to cumulate two rules simultaneously.

Use Directive to combine multiple styling directives.

Plot[1/x^5, {x, -20, 20}, 
 AxesStyle -> Directive[Thick, Arrowheads[{0.0, 0.05}]], 
 ImagePadding -> None]
