Zero.EXEA virus/Navi hybrid of sorts in the Network Transmission game.
- Badass Baritone/Evil Sounds Deep
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Despite him being canonically okay in the end, he just disappears in the future games without much explanation.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He is a virus. Not an infected Navi, a full-blown computer virus that gained a soul. Even he's not sure how that happened, and he's not too pleased about the problems he causes just by existing.
- Expy: Of Zero from the Mega Man X series, of course - one of the few characters to be a reference to it along with Colonel and Iris.
- Face Death with Dignity: He holds nothing against Megaman for coming to delete him and, after being defeated, is quite accepting of deletion. Thankfully, if you have the MystData, there's no need for him to die.
- Heel–Face Turn: If you manage to find the MystData before you face him for the final time, Lan's dad will figure out how to turn Zero into a Navi. He also leads the authorities right to the Professor's location in the finale, turning the Bittersweet Ending into a happy one.
- Humanoid Abomination: He's a NetNavi, all right, but he's purely viral in nature.
- Irony: The digital version of Zero looks more robotic than the reploid original. This is done to distinguish him from ProtoMan, who is already a Zero expy.
- Large and in Charge: The largest humanoid Navi in the game, he's easily four times the size of MegaMan. You'd be forgiven for thinking he's the Big Bad before he starts talking.
- Laser Blade: Of course.
- Rapunzel Hair: What doubles as a cape.
- Tragic Monster: "I didn't ask to be born a virus."
- Unexpected Character: Come on, did YOU expect an X character to become a Navi?
- Whole Plot Reference: His story is nigh-on identical to that of the actual Zero: Created by Wily, spread a dangerous virus, fought someone intended to hunt him down, had a Heel–Face Turn, proves pivotal to the defeat of the Big Bad.
ProfessorWily's unseen assistant from the first game. With Wily presumed dead at the time, he takes over Wily's goal of destroying Net Society by recreating the Life Virus and starting the war Wily wanted.
- Big Bad: Of Network Transmission and most of Beast +.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: His view of Zero as a tool is what drove him away and he programmed Zero One to self destruct when defeated. Zero uses this to his advantage and teleports both of them into his airship forcing him to abandon ship with a parachute allowing the Net Police to catch him.
- Trademark Favorite Food: A sushi restaurant serves as a front for his virus lab and his airship resembles a sushi roll where he's shown eating some as well.

- Ambiguous Gender: While fansubs use female pronouns for the character, Slur's appearance and voice are androgynous, and there's no concrete reference to "her" gender in the Japanese version, or English official materials for that matter.
