The various animal and plant Maverick Reploids who serve as the main bosses of the Mega Man X series.
    open/close all folders 

    All Mavericks 
  • Cycle of Hurting: In many cases, using their weakness weapon will make their AI trapped in a loop that makes them vulnerable to another weakness weapon attack. Especially in case of Spark Mandrill who can be prevented completely from moving at all with his weakness weapon, Shotgun Ice.
  • Dub Name Change: Many bosses have their names changed in the western release. It gets egregious in X5 where the western names of the Mavericks are references to Guns N' Roses members.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Many of the Mavericks you fought are former Hunters or otherwise civilians.
  • Fire Is Red: When you encounter a fire-based Maverick, expect them to be colored red or orange.
  • In-Series Nickname/Red Baron: Most, if not all of them have one each. They're mostly in the manual, though.
  • Monogender Monsters: All of them are male.
  • Petting Zoo People: The majority of these Mavericks are Ridiculously Human Robots that resemble animals.
  • Something Person: Generally it's "Something Animal" (with occasional plant and fungus). Unlike the Robot Masters in the Classic series, several Maverick bosses can have the same "Something" word in their names, such as Flame Mammoth, Flame Stag, and Flame Hyenard.
    • A Lizard Named "Liz": Meanwhile, in the Japanese version, the bosses' names are corruptions of the name of the animal they represent. This is shown the most in X6 (see below) where the names mostly don't change overseas; you'd be hard pressed to find out what "Mijinion" would refer to.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: Many of the Mavericks have an attack based on a behaviour of the animal they're based off. For example, Chill Penguin slides on the floor, Wheel Gator does the alligator death roll, Blast Hornet attacks with his stinger, etc.
  • Turns Red: They'll modify their pattern and whip out new strategies after their health goes below half.

Mega Man X/Maverick Hunter X Mavericks

    General 
  • Came Back Wrong: MHX interprets the refights in Sigma's Palace as actually reconstructions of the bodies which lack the mind of the original, and are therefore more robotic (ironically) than before.
    • This may be implied in the Boss Rushes in the other games as well, except in X8 where they're just regular New Generation Reploids that shapeshift into the bosses.

    Armored Armadillo (Armor Armage)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x1_-_boomerang_kuwanger_1375.jpg
Space-Time Jumper
Voiced by Hisashi Izumi (JP), Ethan Cole (US)

A Maverick Hunter from the 17th Elite Unit under Sigma, the same unit as his brother Gravity Beetle and X. He has no sense of right and wrong, making decisions based only on logic. When Sigma rebelled, he used deductive reasoning and joined the rebellion.

Acquired weapon: Boomerang Cutter (X), Cutter weapon system (Vile)
Weakness: Homing Torpedo

  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: He resembles a stag beetle, as his name implies.
  • Blood Knight: Considers both X and Vile to be interesting opponents to fight.
  • Boomerang Comeback: His Boomerang Cutter works this way. When used by X, it can even bring items back.
  • Brain Uploading: In the X1 manga, he uploaded his mind into his base's computers to operate his body at peak performance.
  • Dub Name Change: To "Boomerang Kuwanger" in Maverick Hunter X, but somewhat downplayed as they don't change the "Kuwanger" part.
  • Expy: of Cut Man and Quick Man.
  • Grapple Move: He can do this to your player character with his horns.
  • Horn Attack: He can either throw his horns at you or, conversely, throw you away with his horn.
  • Horned Humanoid: As a stag beetle Petting Zoo Person robot, he comes with the horns.
  • Japanese Beetle Brothers: With Gravity Beetle.
  • Logical Weakness: Being a teleport-spamming high-speed robot with only a single ranged attack doesn't help when your opponent has homing weapons.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: While he's mostly based on a stag beetle, his lean build and the triad of auxiliary eyes on his forehead are more evocative of some kind of wasp.
  • Multi-Directional Barrage: Charged Boomerang Cutter will send 4 big cutters to 4 directions that fly in an arc, covering large area.
  • Spock Speak: Well-spoken at all times, and speaks with trains of logic.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: Throwing you with his Dead Lift move via his horns.
  • Super Speed: Moves very quickly even when not teleporting.
  • Teleport Spam: Rapidly teleports around the room.
  • The Tower: His stage is set in a communications tower that he made into his base of operations. X has to climb the walls inside, then take an elevator, then climb the ladders outside, then go inside again before fighting him.
  • Utility Weapon: Boomerang Cutter can obtain hard-to-reach items. It can also cut off Octopus' tentacles and Mammoth's trunk, disabling attacks that use those appendages.

Lord of the Snowy Plains
Voiced by Ryuzo Ishino (JP), Dean Galloway (US)

A Maverick Hunter from the 13th Polar Region Unit, Chill Penguin moved to the 17th Elite Unit and was under Sigma's command. When the revolt started, it sounded fun to him, so he joined up to leave his boring post at the South Pole. There was strong animosity between him and Flame Mammoth.

Weakness: Fire Wave

    Flame Mammoth (Burnin' Noumander)

Fiery Oil Tanker
Voiced by Kenta Miyake (JP), Gerald Matthews (US)

A Maverick Hunter from the 4th Overland Unit under Sigma. He had an arrogant and cocky attitude, and was extremely proud of his large size and strength. His tendency to look down on those smaller and weaker than him, put him on bad terms with his subordinates and Chill Penguin.

Weakness: Storm Tornado, Boomerang Cutter (the latter only for disabling some of his attacks)

    Launch Octopus (Launcher Octopauld)

  • Eternal Engine: A different one from Flame Mammoth's stage, his is set in a power plant that experiences rolling blackouts.
  • Expy: He's essentially a buffed up version of Spark Man. He even had a piercing weapon (drill) in the PSP remake.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Has a dashing punch as one of his attacks.
  • Ground Punch: His Electric Spark is done this way, by punching the ground with an electrified fist that sends 2 electric balls creeping along the floor and wall.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Manga. After being defeated and realizing X was the ultimate reploid, immediately gave up and surrendered before he is killed by a hologram of Sigma.
  • Killer Gorilla: Although he is more of killer mandrill.
  • Mandrill Popsicle: If he's hit by his weakness weapon.
  • Shock and Awe: His Electric Spark weapon.

Pulverizing Demon of the Ocean Depths

Once a Maverick Hunter and served in the 6th Naval Unit along with Wheel Gator. Being extremely avaricious, Bubble's only motivation in life was to amass great wealth, joined Sigma's rebellion seeing it as his big break. He was put in charge of transportation, and tasked with defending the Mavericks' deep-sea submarine base.

Acquired Weapon: Bubble Splash
Weakness: Spin Wheel

  • Aquatic Mook: You fight him underwater, although the water level changes every now and then.
  • Bubble Gun: His Bubble Splash.
  • Expy: of Bubble Man.
  • Fish People: Well, crab person. Being a Petting Zoo Person robot crab makes him one.
  • Giant Enemy Crab: Actually he's one of the smaller bosses, but is still a crab and bigger than you.
  • Greed: Joined Sigma's forces and the X-Hunters solely because he wanted to get rich.
  • Laser Crab Claws: Extends them from the orbs on his head and jumps to attack you when you're above him.
  • Logical Weakness: A spiked wheel could crack a crab's shell and pop bubble.
  • Making a Splash: Bubble Splash shoots a stream of bubbles.
  • Only in It for the Money: His main motivation to join Sigma's forces was to amass huge amounts of money.
  • Penny-Pinching Crab: A crab-themed boss who only worked for the villains because they paid him enough.
  • Power Pincers: Despite being a crab, he actually lacks these normally. When he does generate them, they're only used as spiked shoulders to pierce X, not pinch him.
  • The Remnant: One of the Maverick Hunters who defected during Sigma's rebellion.
  • Spiked Shoulders of Doom: Which he can project laser crab claws from.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: Blowing bubbles, as well as walking sideways.
  • Under the Sea: His stage has you going to the sea, trying to catch up with his submarine.
  • Underwater Boss Battle: The water level does vary every now and then during his fight.

    Crystal Snail (Crystar Mymine) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x2_-_crystal_snail_26.jpg
Crystal Magician

A snail-type Maverick whose origins and motives are a mystery. He guards the Energen Crystal mine under Sigma's command.

Acquired Weapon: Crystal Hunter
Weakness: Magnet Mine

  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: He's a human-sized snail maverick.
  • Boss Vulnerability: Can't be damaged in his shell.
  • Crystal Landscape: His stage is set in a cave full of colorful crystals.
  • Crystal Prison: His Crystal Hunter does this to X.
  • Dirty Coward: Without his shell to protect him from X's attacks, he doesn't even try to fight and will ignore X to try and climb back inside, only resuming attacking once he's safe again.
  • Expy: of Crystal Man.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: His speed is listed as 500rp, by far the slowest of any boss in the game. This is a complete lie — not only does he rocket around the room using his shell as a booster pack, but when blown out of his shell by a Magnet Mine he begins rapidly jumping and dashing around the room to get back into it.
  • Gemstone Assault: Crystal Hunter shoots gooey crystalline drops.
  • Luckily My Shell Will Protect Me: Can't be damaged when in his shell.
  • Removable Shell: Hit him with the Magnet Mine and it separates him from his shell.
  • Shed Armor, Gain Speed: If you manage to knock his shell off with Magnet Mine, he'll move much faster, trying to get the shell again.
  • Stealth Pun: Everything about him (well, except for when he's without the shell) plays in "a snail's pace". If you don't have/use Magnet Mine or the buster upgrade, your fight with him will be dragged on for long due to his protective shell, his Crystal Hunter stuns its victims in place and its charged version slows everything down.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: Retracting into his shell.
  • Time Master: Subverted- While he looks like he's slowing down time, the manga shows that he actually causes crystals to form around X's body and hamper his movements. Charged Crystal Hunter naturally does the same, giving you the illusion of slowing the enemy movements.
  • Utility Weapon: Enemies frozen by Crystal Hunter can be used as improvised platforms.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When you knock him out of his shell with a Magnet Mine, he goes nuts and starts bounding around the room and dashing about trying to get back to it, foregoing all methods of attack until he's safely back inside.

  • Player-Guided Missile: His Magnet Mine can be controlled to go up or down by the player.
  • The Remnant: One of the Maverick Hunters who defected during Sigma's rebellion.
  • Rock Beats Laser: A technologically-skilled robot that teleports and uses homing mines is weak to scrap metal. In fact, it disables his tail.
  • Sticky Bomb: His Magnet Mine can stick onto walls, ceilings and enemies before exploding.
  • Teleport Spam: Warps around the room throughout the battle.
  • Woolseyism: Odd non-localization example: His Japanese name is "Hyakulegger", or "Hundred Legger", because developers figured Japanese children wouldn't recognize any variation on the English word "centipede"

    Morph Moth (Metamor Mothmeanos) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x2_-_morph_moth_8796.jpg
Fallen Angel of the Island of Dreams

Acquired Weapon: Strike Chain
Weakness: Sonic Slicer

  • Logical Weakness: Both plants and wires can be easily cut through with a sharp blade.
  • Manchild: An production accident resulted in him having a personality disorder, which causes him to be childish and easily amused.
  • Plant Person: He's based off a Loofah/Luffa sponge ("Hechima" in Japan, hence his Japanese name), not a sea sponge.

  • Shock and Awe: His Desperation Attack.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: Spins his Strike Chain in front of him to block attacks.
  • Turns Red: Literally, at a certain point in the battle, combined with Burning with Anger, as steam will come out of...well where his ears should be during the process.
  • Utility Weapon: Strike Chain is a retractable Grappling-Hook Pistol that can be used to either zip to the wall or grab items from a distance. Downplayed in that, aside from some Sequence Breaking to get the X-Buster upgrade early on, there's no time when you need to use the Strike Chain to reach an area.
  • Weather-Control Machine: Can summon lightning, and his stage features crystals that change the weather of the region.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x3_-_crush_crawfish_3098.jpg
Destruction God of the Seven Seas

A violent shrimp-based Reploid created for combat. There was a mistake in Crawfish's AI that made him unable to distinguish between allies and enemies, and thus he attacked anyone indiscriminately.

  • Down the Drain: His stage is set in the sewers, with him trying to pollute it.

  • Hollywood Acid: Fires acid balls that splash on contact with walls. Later on he fires bouncy acid balls as well, and acid does not work that way in real life.

Mega Man X4 Mavericks

    General 
  • Not Brainwashed: The Mavericks under Repliforce were not infected and brainwashed by the Sigma Virus, only becoming Maverick due to Just Following Orders from superiors that were branded as Maverick, although some such as Frost Walrus had very questionable behaviour before they joined.

    Cyber Peacock (Cyber Kujacker) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x4_-_cyber_peacock_3472.jpg
Network Guardian
Voiced by Issei Futamata (JP)

Originally an AI that protected the network from hackers before he was corrupted by Sigma. He then begins corrupting the network himself, to draw the Maverick Hunters attention as he was tasked to measure their potential.

Acquired Weapon: Aiming Laser/Rakuhouha
Weakness: Soul Body/Ryuenjin

    Frost Walrus (Frost Kibatodos) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x4_-_frost_walrus_103.jpg
Roughneck of the North Pole
Voiced by Kazuo Oka (JP)

Frost Walrus was a bad-tempered, destructive Reploid, and his destructive behavior got him identified as a Maverick, but he avoided this fate by aligning with General and joining Repliforce. As a Repliforce member, Walrus was under the impression that rioting around crazily was a military man's duty. When the war between Repliforce and the Maverick Hunters began, he was extremely grateful of the coup d'etat. Walrus was put in charge of base in an intensely cold region that was developing new weapons.

Acquired Weapon: Frost Tower/Hyouretsuzan
Weakness: Rising Fire/Ryuenjin

  • Blood Knight: He was very angry and destructive before Repliforce.
  • Desperation Attack: Creates a giant ice crystal that falls to the ground and explodes into a rain of icicles. It's copied as both X and Zero's weapons.
  • Elemental Barrier: X can use his acquired weapon like this. It can also be dropped from above, if done in midair.
  • Expy: Cold Man is based on him. Also of Frost Man to a lesser extent.
  • Fangs Are Evil: One of the more evil members of Repliforce and being a Wily Walrus Petting Zoo Person, he's got the fangs. Made of ice, no less.
  • Fat Bastard: Big and likes to look down on others weaker than him. Especially in the manga.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: In the manga.
  • An Ice Walrus
  • Just a Kid: Says this before confronting X/Zero, which is ironic since the two are the oldest Reploids in existence.
    To X: "They sent a kid like you after me? I promise to end this quickly"
    To Zero: "What's that blonde kid up to?! I don't have time for you junior!"
  • Large and in Charge: Of his Repliforce weapons warehouse.
  • Logical Weakness: Like a lot of Ice-based bosses, he's weak against fire based weapon. Walrus On Fire is the result.
  • Mighty Glacier: Big and slow, but his ice attacks pack a whallop. Along with him having ice powers, he's a Mighty Glacier in every sense of the word.
  • Shoulders of Doom: Has big round shoulders adorned with icicles.
  • Slide Attack: Slides on his belly to rush at you. He may sometimes jump first and then fall belly-first before doing so if you're in midair (pretty much anticipating your evading attempt).
  • Slippy-Slidey Ice World: The first half of his stage is set in an icy mountain with lots of snowy winds, and the second half is set in a base in said mountain which houses frozen robots.
  • Smart Bomb: Charged Frost Tower summons a lot of big falling ice chunks that can potentially fill the whole screen.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: He was already dangerously sociopathic before joining the Repliforce.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: Slides around like a walrus would.
  • Sword Plant: Zero's acquired move, used with a big icicle.
  • Weak to Fire: As an ice-based boss, he doesn't take too well to Rising Fire or Ryuenjin, taking extra damage and even catching fire when hit by them.

Aqua Destroyer
Voiced by Osamu Hosoi (JP)

Jet Stingray worked his way up the ranks to become a member of the Repliforce's navy. He had great respect for both General and Colonel. When the coup began, as a diversion he attacked a city's underground power station creating chaos to draw in the Maverick Hunters.

Acquired Weapon: Ground Hunter/Hienkyaku
Weakness: Frost Tower/Hyouretsuzan

    Magma Dragoon (Magmard Dragoon) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x4_-_magma_dragoon_4062.jpg
Martial Artist of Exploding Flame
Voiced by Takashi Nagasako (JP)

Once a member of the 14th Special Unit he betrayed the Maverick Hunters, becoming a Maverick himself, all for a chance to duel with X and Zero. Under the promise of obtaining what he desired most, he followed Sigma's orders and sabotaged the power generator of the floating colony.

Acquired Weapon: Rising Fire/Ryuenjin
Weakness: Double Cyclone/Raijingeki

  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: He's offered a chance to fight X and Zero, for the exchange of blowing up the Sky Lagoon. Guess who's offering him.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows
  • Blood Knight: He destroyed the Sky Lagoon and killed thousands of innocent people just so that he could fight X and Zero!
  • Breath Weapon: His Rising Fire lodged in his mouth.
  • The Cameo: A digitized, toned down version appears as the Training Mode boss in X5.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Whenever he uses Hadouken or Shoryuken, he'll call out "Hadouken!" and "Shoryuken!" respectively. Just like how Akuma (who Dragoon is an Expy of) calls his out too.
  • Death Equals Redemption: Zig-Zagged. His Final Speech invoked this, but he was still rebuilt in the Final Weapon and once again fights X/Zero (though given the entry for Came Back Wrong, what you're fighting is probably just a shell).
  • Death from Above: His Desperation Attack is firing many fireballs to the sky and then they fall down like meteors.
  • Diving Kick: Uses one covered in fire to attack X or Zero. It's based off Akuma's Tenmakujinkyaku.
  • Draconic Humanoid: A humanoid Dragon Reploid.
  • Expy:
    • Appears to be one for Akuma. Both of them have a Blood Knight nature, have necklaces of large beads around their necks, have "Heavenly Sky" symbols, and perform similar attacks such as the Hadouken, Shoryuken, Tenmakujinkyaku, and Tenma Gou Zankuu.
    • He also gets two in the form of Fighting Fafnir and Magma Man.
  • Face–Heel Turn: As mentioned, he was a member of the 14th Special Unit before Sigma offered him to destroy the Sky Lagoon and betray the Hunters.
  • Fallen Hero: Was once a Maverick Hunter until he was convinced by Sigma to destroy the Sky Lagoon.
  • Final Speech: Notable for being the only standard-8-animals-Maverick boss to have one. This extends to the Zero series, too: Technically, none of the bosses you fight there are "Maverick".
  • Fireballs: He can create one, then throw it into the magma pool of the sides of his arena to create a geyser of lava.
  • Guttural Growler: His voice is really raspy.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: The second dragon boss in the game and he leaves quite an impact on the story.
  • Kamehame Hadouken: Attacks with fiery hadoukens, high and low.
  • Lethal Lava Land: He hides himself in a volcano, and you have to chase him there.
  • Lava Pit: His battlefield is a small island surrounded by lava on both sides.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Strong, tough and fast enough to deliver heavy-hitting Spam Attacks!
  • Logical Weakness: Wind blows away fire.
  • The Mole
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: A fiery dragon martial artist robot.
  • Not Brainwashed: Possibly. We're never told if Sigma infected him with the Maverick Virus, or whether he was just manipulated by Sigma appealing to his Blood Knight nature.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Here, we have a robot dragon martial artist who's a traitor.
  • Playing with Fire: Fights exclusively with fire based attacks. Even all his martial arts moves have flames covered on them!
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Betrayed the Maverick/Irregular Hunters and the game itself heavily enforces the player to fight him first (due to the Ride Armor and the fact that his weapons are useful). Further, he's even made into a training dummy in X5.
  • Shoryuken: One of his moves; Zero's Ryuenjin is based on this. X's charged Rising Fire also becomes this.
  • Shotoclone: And a pretty blatant one at that.
  • Turn Coat: See his bio above.
  • Utility Weapon: Rising Fire/Ryuenjin can burn down wood and ice, allowing the player to uncover Heart Tanks.
  • Worth It: If playing as X, his Final Speech has him tell X that the atrocities he committed to incite the fight (and subsequent death) "was worth it...for a final duel..."

    Slash Beast (Slash Beastleo)

Steel King of Destruction
Voiced by Takashi Nagasako (JP)

He enlisted in Repliforce only to freely exercise his combat abilities, but despite this attitude he showed dauntless courage in battle, fearing no one. During the coup, Slash Beast was put in charge of guarding Repliforce's military supply train.

Acquired Weapon: Twin Slasher/Shippuuga
Weakness: Ground Hunter/Raijingeki

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: In charge of the unit protecting Repliforce's supply train, and he's a far better fighter than the rest of his unit.
  • Blood Knight: Enlisted in Repliforce only to freely exercise his combat ability.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He excels in combat techniques, and he's proud of his abilities.
  • Counter Attack: When his health is below half, he can sometimes prepare a special stance; attack him and he'll retaliate with the Twin Slasher.
  • Deadly Lunge: Has a powerful lunging attack that goes back and forth that he uses once his health go below half. Zero's Shippuuga is based on this. Also see Desperation Attack below.
  • Desperation Attack: Two of them. The first is the above-mentioned Counter Attack. The second one has him lunge at X/Zero, if this connects, he then grabs the player and smashes them into the wall.
  • Death from Above: Has a stomping attack after jumping high.
  • Dynamic Entry: He shows up Racing the Train X/Zero is on, jumping up and then destroying the crate in front of them upon landing.
  • Expy: of Charge Man and Slash Man.
  • King of Beasts: He's a lion in charge of a military unit.
  • Land, Sea, Sky: Representing Land (Repliforce's Army).
  • Lightning Bruiser: His attacks hurt if you're hit and he's fast enough to catch up with a train.
  • Locomotive Level: His stage is set on his military train that is carrying supplies.
  • Logical Weakness: A fighter who is fast on his feet will get tripped by a ground projectile; he probably won't see it coming.
  • Racing the Train: His battle intro when you first fight him.
  • Razor Wind: His flash kick causes waves of energy to be shot out.
  • Roar Before Attacking: Tends to do this often before executing an attack.
  • Shout-Out: Uses a move similar to Guile's Flash kick.
  • Spread Shot: Twin Slasher is shot out to 2 directions. If charged, it fires 8 shots that covers a wider area.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: Roaring before attacking. Also, his desperation attack has him grab the player in his mouth.
  • Utility Weapon: A charged Twin Slasher is the only way to remove the blocks in front of the Body Armor capsule.
  • Wolverine Claws: Uses them as a Desperation Attack. It can be shattered by Ground Hunter, robbing him of most of his moves.

    Split Mushroom 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x4_-_split_mushroom_8456.jpg
Little Devil of the Ruins
Voiced by Mari Maruta (JP)

Split Mushroom was once in charge of operations at a bio laboratory, but when the lab was abandoned he was disposed of. During the great Repliforce war, Mushroom was resurrected by Sigma as a Maverick. He turned the abandoned lab into a stronghold, and attacked anyone who entered for his own amusement. His activity gained the attention of the Maverick Hunters, and he was ordered to destroy X and Zero.

Acquired Weapon: Soul Body/Kuuenbu and Kuuenzan
Weakness: Lightning Web/Raijingeki

  • Abandoned Laboratory: His stage is set in one, filled with traps and multiple robotic plants.
  • Desperation Attack: Does a head slam into the ground and releases deadly spores.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: He can create a fully-similar clone of himself (as opposed to a Hard Light) that he'll use to confuse the player. X's charged Soul Body does a similar thing, only that it creates an unarmored X that moves independently (but restricted to the screen) while the real X is invincible (but immovable) the whole time.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Several of his attacks involve him spinning around.
  • Expy: of Gemini Man
  • Hard Light: Can create holographic clones that hurt. X's uncharged Soul Body does the similar thing, with it destroying enemies just by collision.
  • Mushroom Man: The only fungus-based maverick in the entire series.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Don't let his size fool you. He can be a real pain in the ass.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Split Mushroom enjoys make-believe and is actually playing Superhero in the Japanese version, thinking of X/Zero as villains. This aspect is not present in the English one due to the removal of certain spoken lines.
  • Rolling Attack: Zero's acquired weapon, based off of his midair rolling.
  • Use Your Head: His Desperation Attack causes him to do a head slam on the ground and emit dangerous spores.
  • Wall Crawl: More like wall-cling, but still.
  • X-Ray Sparks: When electrocuted.

    Storm Owl (Storm Fukuroul)

Staff Chief of the Skies
Voiced by Kazuo Oka (JP)

One of the Repliforce's most resourceful generals, Storm Owl regarded the entire staff as family. He was extremely resentful when he and his associates were branded as Mavericks by the Hunters. After the Repliforce coup began, he launched the air brigade of hammerhead shark-shaped airship to divert the Maverick Hunters' attention.

Acquired Weapon: Double Cyclone/Tenkuuha
Weakness: Aiming Laser/Rakuhouha

    Web Spider (Web Spidus) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x4_-_web_spider_578.jpg
Guerrilla Commander of the Jungle
Voiced by Issei Futamata (JP)

Once a Maverick Hunter of the 0th Special Unit, he now works for Repliforce as commander of their guerrilla unit. When Repliforce began their coup he remained loyal and was stationed in the jungle charged with guarding a powerful beam cannon hidden there.

Acquired Weapon: Lightning Web/Raijingeki
Weakness: Twin Slasher/Ryuenjin

  • All Webbed Up: Getting hit by his electrical webs makes you get caught in them and take continuous damage.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The commander of Repliforce's guerilla unit and quite the competent fighter.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: He's a human-sized spider reploid.
  • Desperation Attack: Creates a giant web network and starts moving around it, while attacking and sending out small spider drones.
  • Elemental Barrier: Like Storm Owl, he puts up an electric barrier whenever he's hit that blocks shots.
  • Expy: of Skull Man and Search Man. He also has some features taken from Bospider, the first fortress boss in the first game.
  • Flunky Boss: When low on health, he can send out baby spiders to attack X or Zero.
  • Giant Spider: He's a spider reploid that's human sized.
  • High-Class Glass: Like Storm Owl, he appears to have a monocle on his eye, although it could be more of a targeting device.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Zero's acquired weapon.
  • Jungle Japes: The first half of his stage is set around the jungle's rivers, while the second part is in the deeper woods, with lots of robot snakes, bees and spiders.
  • Nice Hat: Along with Jet Stingray and Storm Owl.
  • Outside-the-Box Tactic: You can use the Twin Slasher to cut the web he's dangling from, causing him to fall to the ground for heavy damage.
    • Logical Weakness: No web is very useful if it gets shredded to pieces. Zigzagged somewhat, though, since only one cutting weapon can be used against it, even if there are others (see: Zero's own Z-Saber).
  • Remember the New Guy?: He used to be a Maverick Hunter and he and Zero personally know each other, yet this is the first time that we actually meet him.
  • Shock and Awe: His weapon is a web of electricity.
  • Spread Shot: Charged Lightning Web spreads out to 8 directions after its initial projectile stops.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: At low health, he sticks in a giant web and moves around it. Also hanging off of a string of (electric) web.
  • Turn Coat: He used to be Maverick Hunter but he transferred into Repliforce some time before this game.
  • Utility Weapon: Lightning Web can provide a temporary wall for a Wall Jump.
  • Warmup Boss: Has very simple patterns, and can be easily beaten without his weakness; good for a starting boss. He does, however, has a homing attack (his own Lightning Web) that actually hurts, which can shock beginners who don't know what to expect.

Mega Man X5 Mavericks

    General 
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Their English names are based off Guns N' Roses, save Skiver who is named after Michael "High in the Sky" Monroe (a temporary partner of the band used in concerts). As the Japanese names were more or less left alone in the instruction manual, they'll be the ones listed in parenthesis.
  • Suicide by Cop: Most of them (except for Dark Dizzy, Axle the Red and arguably Mattrex) got recently infected with the Sigma Virus, and they ask X/Zero to destroy them/have one last good fight before they go mindless.

    Mattrex (Burn Dinorex) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x5_-_burn_dinorex_8990.jpg
Jurassic Inferno

Rampaging Iron Claw
A grizzly-bear based Reploid. An arms broker resides in his secret weapon warehouse situated in northern Russia, he made a living by battling strong Reploids and seizing their weapons, then selling those weapons on the black market. He felt this was his purpose in life, though recently it's keeping him busy. Despite selling weapons to the black market, Slash seems to don't like violence, saying that he is just an arms broker and that both Mavericks and Maverick Hunters are the same, too violent and overconfident. His right eye was scarred during an earlier battle with Zero. Slash possesses the aurichalcum crystal necessary for the Enigma cannon the Maverick Hunters are creating to shoot down the space colony Eurasia.

Acquired weapon: C-Shot/C-Sword
Weakness: Spike Ball/Twin Dream

  • Arms Dealer: Sells weapons to the black market after seizing them.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Kind of subverted, he's the easiest boss in the game and he gives a good weapon/technique.

  • Desperation Attack: Shoots out 2 large crescent waves of energy.
  • Dig Attack: When his health drops to 2/3, he'll go on a rampage and tunnels into the ground, periodically appearing either from above to drop down on the player, from below with a drill sticking out, or from the background where he swipes with his claw.

  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar going down his right eye after a past battle with Zero.
  • Locomotive Level: In a variant, his stage is set on multiple cargo trucks that are moving towards his hideout in a cavern.
  • Mighty Glacier: He's still pretty slow even when he Turns Red. That side, his big claw is nothing to laugh at.
  • Monstrosity Equals Weakness: He's one of the biggest mavericks in the game and yet is one of the easier, if not easiest fights.
  • Noodle Incident
    Slash: "Seeing you reopens old wounds."

  • Utility Weapon: His acquired weapons are the only thing that can destroy the plasma ball generators in Izzy Glow's stage, one of which leads to Dr. Light's capsule.

Forgotten Soldier of Darkness
A vampire bat-based Reploid created by Sigma three years prior to the events of Mega Man X5. However, he fled from Sigma when he saw an opportunity.

Scarlet Witchcraft
Axle the Red's creation is actually the result of a freak mutation between a Reploid, the nature control unit in the thick jungle of Ukraine and the Sigma Virus. Since there's a high chance that mutated Reploids like him will be Maverick, he has the potential to pose as a new threat instead of the virus. Red took refuge in an abandoned Repliforce base situated somewhere in Ukraine, where the Maverick Hunters headed to pick up an orbiter engine for the shuttle they were working on to take out Eurasia.

During the massive outbreak of the Sigma Virus, the Maverick Hunters come to Skiver for an Orbital Wing he possesses. However, since he still has unresolved issues towards the deaths of Colonel and Iris and he is in the beginning stages of going Maverick, he refuses to give the Maverick Hunter an Orbital Wing and asks them to be taken out in duel.

Acquired weapon: Wing Spiral/W-Shredder
Weakness: Dark Hold

    Duff McWhalen (Tidal Makkoeen) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x5_-_tidal_whale_8223.jpg
Guardian Deity of the Oceans
A whale-based Reploid who was a great lover of the ocean, and served as both the curator of an oceanic museum and the commander of a maritime garrison. His great sense of responsibility for the ocean even brought him to frequent arguments with the Repli-Seaforce. Duff guards the ocean (mainly the North Atlantic), which is needed to produce the Hydrogen necessary for the Enigma laser cannon. During the Sigma Virus outbreak incident, X and Zero approached McWhalen for access to the ocean so they could extract its hydrogen. Having already been infected with the virus, McWhalen asked them to battle him as a final request.

Acquired weapon: Goo Shaver/F-Splasher
Weakness: C-Shot/C-Sword

However, after doubting the purpose of his duties as a Maverick Hunter, he resigned and later began research at an energy engineering facility near the Korea Strait. During the Sigma Virus outbreak, he was approached for his energy cartridge to use to complete the Enigma cannon. He was willing to hand it over, but turned completely Maverick at that very moment.

Acquired weapon: Tri-Thunder/E-Blade

Mega Man X6 Mavericks

    General 
  • Back from the Dead: They've been mentioned as being dead long before the events in the game, and they're revived by Gate.
  • Make It Look Like an Accident: Most of them were retired under sabotaged incidents or labeled as Mavericks and are killed on the spot.
  • Undying Loyalty: Majority of them are loyal to Gate.
  • Utility Weapon: Most of their weapons are useful against the Nightmare Phenomenons that occur after you exit/finish their stages. I.e Heatnix's weapons vs the falling fireballs or Shark's weapons vs the moving iron blocks.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Most of them were retired without them doing anything wrong to justify it, beyond their really high specs. Especially for Turtloid and Sheldon. Granted, Heatnix and and Mijinion are quite assholes and Player's actions are questionably ethical, but still.

    Blaze Heatnix 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x6_-_blaze_heatnix_7232.jpg
He is a phoenix-based Reploid created by Gate to withstand extremely hot temperatures. Later he became a member of a disaster prevention team created to respond to increased activity from active volcanoes. However, because Heatnix was so much more powerful than the other members, he would ignore his coworkers (seeing them as weak and useless) in dangerous situations, disregard them if they ran into danger, resulting in many losses. Gate was demanded to weaken Heatnix to keep him on par with the other members, but Gate ignored these requests. As a result, Heatnix was eventually disposed of for his behavior. Gate later revived him to use him in the Nightmare investigation, and sent him to the magma area.

One day, his team members were attacked by Mavericks and all were killed, except Wolfang, who was able to dispose of all the Mavericks himself. Researchers who opposed Gate took advantage of the incident and schemed to dispose Wolfang, deceiving Alia into throwing him into the cold sea, making it look like an accident. Gate later revives Wolfang, making him part of his Nightmare Investigation team. And was sent to an intense cold area.

He has an understandable paranoia and distrust of Reploid researchers, and, for unknown reasons, Maverick Hunters. While on duty he accidentally set a fire that burnt a large portion of the forest. Sometime later, the Reploid researchers sabotages his flight system, leading to a fatal crash and his death.

In his work he discovered a lot of data on ancient robots and Gate assisted him in exchange for this information. When Gate sent Scaravich to a forbidden area (the laboratory where X was discovered), Alia was forced to intercept and dispose of him. She felt bad for doing this, but Gate appeared to not have cared about what happened to him.

Mijinion was often arrogant and hasty, and would completely ignore the testing program, which put many of his associates in peril. Eventually Mijinion was killed in a sabotaged test that was made to look like an accident. Later on, during the Nightmare incident, Gate revived Mijinion as an investigator and sent him to a weapons manufacturing plant. Once there, Mijinion immediately began constructing a massive weapon called Illumina.

He is a hammerhead shark-based Reploid created by Gate to work as member of a recycling research team. His job was to oversee the analysis and control of DNA at the facility and was very skilled in his work. Player's abilities in DNA analysis soon led him to experiment in the recreation of Reploids using the DNA of retired Mavericks. Gate still used and encouraged his work despite "DNA Resurrection" being deemed illegal by the government. Player's activities were eventually discovered and he was disposed of as punishment. Gate later revives him as one of his Nightmare Investigators, putting him back in charge of the recycling plant.

Acquired weapon: Metal Anchor/Rakukojin
Weakness: Meteor Rain/Ensuizan

  • Anchors Away
  • Death from Above: He can sometimes fall to the ground head-first to smash X/Zero. Zero's acquired technique takes cues from this.
  • Eternal Engine: His stage is set in a recycling plant with lots of Descending Ceilings that acts as press disposer.
  • Extra-ore-dinary
  • Expy: of Dust Man and Junk Man.
  • Logical Weakness: Zig Zagged Trope - him being weak to water doesn't make sense when you think that he's a shark, but it does make sense when you think that he uses metal as weapon, and water rusts metal. It's implied that Meteor Rain is actually an acid rain, just like the rain in Rainy Turtloid's stage, which can - and does - kill aquatic lives, as well as rusting metal.
  • Necromancer: He excels in reploid DNA resurrection and he can create clones from various old Mavericks out of junk.
    • In fact, X can pick up his robo-Necromancy by charging his Metal Anchor to summon a barrage of iron Storm Eagles statues.
  • Shark Fin of Doom: When he swims beneath the junk metals, his sticking out fin could hurt you.
  • Shark Man
  • Smart Bomb: Charged Metal Anchor summons falling Storm Eagles that cover the whole screen. Be careful, however, as it leaves X immobile and vulnerable, and the Storm Eagles disappear instantly if he's hit.

He is a turtle-based Reploid created by Gate as a member of a water quality research team. He was designed to explore areas with high levels of pollution too great for humans and other Reploids to investigate. As such, his defense systems were greatly heightened. However, concerns grew that his defensive capabilities were too great, and the other researchers demanded he be weakened. Gate refused to comply, Rainy Turtloid invited harsh punishment upon himself. Not wanting his master to be caused any burden, Turtloid took his own life. During the Nightmare incident, Gate resurrected Turtloid as a member of the investigation team and sent him to Inami Temple.

A shellfish (possibly giant clam)-based Reploid created by Gate to serve as a bodyguard for important people (mainly chiefs of other research institutes). Shieldon feels he failed in his job as bodyguard when Dr. Jim, a laser researcher he was protecting, went Maverick. Sheldon had no choice but to dispose of Jim, but his actions were misinterpreted by the Maverick Hunters that arrived on the scene and he was charged as a Maverick himself. He could not deal with the stress and shame of the incident deciding to take his own life, believing that he was useless. Gate later revived Sheldon as a member of the Nightmare Investigators and sent him to the laser research institute. Seeing this as a second chance, he tries to fulfill his duty as a bodyguard protecting Gate, even at the costs of his life again.

Strongarm of the Deepest Green
Voiced by Tessho Genda (JP), Walter Roberts (EN)

A gorilla-based Reploid who lives in the thick jungle of North Africa, and acts somewhat like a medieval knight. He is one of three Red Alert members who is fully aware that he is being manipulated by "the Professor" (the other two being Red and Tornado Tonion). However, unlike the other two, he doesn't seem to regret being used for evil (something noted by and scolded by Axl), as he only fights for loyalty, not justice.

Voiced by Rumi Kasahara (JP), Lenne Hardt (EN)

Acquired weapon: Explosion (+ G-Launcher)/Hadangeki
Weakness: Wind Cutter/Souenbu

  • Boxing Kangaroo: When his Ride Armor is destroyed, he attacks with martial arts.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: He is roughly half the height of the Maverick Hunters, and upon being told by X stop his destructive antics, his response is essentially: "Shut up, you can't tell me what to do!"
  • Deflector Shields
  • Expy: Gets one in the form of Commando Man.
  • Kangaroo Pouch Ride: His Ride Armor is styled after a mother kangaroo, with its cockpit being in its "pouch".
  • Mad Bomber
  • Manchild: Gungaroo talks and acts like a spoiled child, and is belittled by Zero and Axl for such.
  • Mini-Mecha: The only boss in the X series to ever use a Ride Armor, apart from Vile.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: Punching/kicking the player character.
  • Zerg Rush: Before facing Gungaroo, the Hunters must face an onslaught of Ride Armor enemies.

Mega Man X8 Mavericks

    General 
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Their boss rematch pods each have a distinct color:
    • Optic Sunflower: Yellow.
    • Dark Mantis: Purple.
    • Gravity Antonion: Magenta.
    • Earthrock Trilobyte: Orange.
    • Gigabolt Manowar: Light Blue.
    • Avalanche Yeti: White.
    • Burn Rooster: Red.
    • Bamboo Pandamonium: Green.
  • Not Brainwashed: As New Series Reploids, they're actually immune to the Maverick Virus...and they have bits of Sigma inside their own programs, and thus entirely open to Evilutionary Biologist ideals without succumbing to the Virus.
  • We Can Rule Together: Played straight/downplayed. As Axl is the prototype of their kind, some of them tend to treat him with respect, perhaps with the intention of swaying him to their side, while some others treat him like dirt. To some extent, they'll also comment about how their master is interested in Zero in various ways.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Most, if not all of them will object to the heroes calling them Mavericks in various ways. Probably because they aren't infected with the virus, and the heroes are unintentionally calling them brain damaged.

    Avalanche Yeti (Ice-Snow Yettinger)

Guardian of the Eternally Frozen Fields
Voiced by Youichi Sasayama (JP), Dave Pettitt (EN)

A Yeti-based new generation Reploid that worked at an environmental research center in Antarctica. He's worried about the world's environment, but when he became a Maverick, he tampered with the control system of the facility.

Acquired weapon: Drift Diamond/Hyouryuushou/Ice Gatling
Weakness: Thunder Dancer/Raikousen/Plasma Gun

    Bamboo Pandamonium (Bamboo Pandemonium) 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x8_-_bamboo_pandamonium_2324.jpg
Fallen Giant of the Forest
Voiced by Sazame Manda (JP), Jonathan Love (EN)

Pandamonium was in charge of the rocket center in Booster Forest, a space research facility in China used before the Jakob Orbital Elevator was built. After it was abandoned, he stayed at the facility. When he became a Maverick, he collected data on the rockets in the facility for Sigma.

Acquired weapon: Green Spinner/Youdantotsu/Blast Launcher
Weakness: Melt Creeper/Enkoujin/Flame Burner

  • Arm Cannon/Wolverine Claws: A combo of them on each arm.
  • Armor-Piercing Attack: Zero's Youdantotsu works as this. Also X's and Axl's acquired weapons.
  • Backpack Cannon: he fires his Blast Launcher from his back.
  • Bamboo Technology: He shoots exploding bamboo shoots at you!
  • Bear Hug: His "immobilization" attack. This does a lot of damage and you have to call in your partner to get you out.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Largest Maverick, deceptive reach and speed, a move that's pretty much a OHKO.
  • Blade Spam: Youdantotsu + D-Glaive = Renyoudan, a series of 4 wood-elemental strikes. Pandamonium himself also does this sometimes if you're close enough.
  • Death from Above: Pandamonium fires out a rocket (or two) that arcs into the air. 5+ seconds later during his next attack, it lands on top of you and blows up, and if you're trapped by bamboo shoots it may be impossible to evade. Charged Green Spinner also works like this.
  • Desperation Attack: A Megaton Punch (may be Youdantotsu) that does a heavy amount of damage and can destroy ride armors in one hit. On hard mode, it's a hard-to-avoid One-Hit Kill if you haven't purchased any Life Ups, encouraging you to save his stage for later or get there in the ride armor.
  • Expy: of Yamato Man.
  • Green Thumb: Manipulates bamboo-based weapons.
  • Grenade Launcher: the Blast Launcher.
  • Hailfire Peaks: His stage is a mix of Eternal Engine and Jungle Japes, being a space research facility inside a forest.
  • In Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves: He often talks about how history has been spent on making destructive inventions and that it is what makes the world be in the current state now - desolate and war-torn.
  • Logical Weakness: Fire burns plants. Panda On Fire is the result.
  • Megaton Punch: His Desperation Attack, which does the most damage in the game aside from Lumine's Paradise Lost.
  • Mighty Glacier: Moves only sparingly and slowly, but has great firepower.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: Though he might actually be a threat to the players instead.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Many of his attacks are explosive-based.
  • Weak to Fire: As a plant-based boss, he doesn't take too well to the fire based weapons, taking extra damage and even catching fire when hit by them.

    Burn Rooster (Burn Kokekokker)

White-Hot Fowl
Voiced by Kyouzou Kudou (JP), Jonathan Love (EN)

Insect Inhabiting Rich Mineral Deposits
Voiced by Kyouzou Kudou (JP), Randall Wiebe (EN)

Trilobyte was in charge of the Rare Metal mine in Metal Valley, which has minerals essential to space development used by the Jakob Project. When he became a Maverick, he instigated a rebellion in Metal Valley and gave the extracted minerals to Sigma.

Acquired weapon: Crystal Wall/Rekkyoudan/Bound Blaster
Weakness: Squeeze Bomb/Juuhazan/Spiral Magnum

  • Advancing Boss of Doom: His stage has a gigantic Mechaniloid chasing after you; you then have to beat it with a moving crane. After you attack it enough, it's inverted in that it'll start running away from you.
  • Attack Reflector: What Zero will get from him; his normal slashes can reflect projectiles. Crystal Wall can also be used this way.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies
  • Desperation Attack: Creates multiple advancing walls of doom, just like one point during the level.
  • Dishing Out Dirt
  • Expy: Of Crystal Snail. He also gets one in the form of Jewel Man.
  • Gemstone Assault
  • Heavily Armored Mook: You need to get rid of his armor or flip him over before you can properly damage him.
  • Logical Weakness: No amount of armor is going to be effective against an attack that destroys even the toughest of defenses.
  • Pinball Projectile: Bound Blaster
  • Removable Shell: His armor can be destroyed with his weakness.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Real-life trilobites are extinct.
  • Smug Snake: Trilobyte is one of the eight New Generation Reploids that Sigma chose to usher in their new world, and rubs it into Axl's face for being a "half-baked prototype".
  • The Social Darwinist: He has nothing but disdain for the old generation Reploids, calling them "old piles of scrap" or a variation every chance he gets.
  • Utility Weapon: A charged Crystal Wall can uncover Rare Metal upgrades if used in the correct spot.

High Voltage Drifter

He is a jellyfish-based new generation Reploid that supplied energy to Megalopolis. When he became a Maverick, he started causing chaos and siphoned off the energy supply of Megalopolis to Sigma. The Maverick Hunters had to chase him throughout the city with a Sirius Ride Chaser to stop his rampage.

Voiced by "Turkey" (JP), Elinor Holt (EN)

Sunflower was originally responsible for running Troia Base, a virtual Hunter training facility stationed in Europe. When he became a Maverick, he caused the management program of the training area, "Helios", to go haywire.

Acquired weapon: Shining Ray/Tenshouha/Ray Gun
Weakness: Green Spinner/Youdantotsu/Blast Launcher

  • Ax-Crazy: Though he claims not to be so. In fact, after you defeat at least four other Mavericks, his lines are rather normal in tone.
  • Chasing Your Tail: One of his moves has him go into one point of the room and spin a laser around the battlefield, forcing the player to move in a circle.
  • Call-Back: If you face him as Zero after beating four other Mavericks.
    Sunflower: Zero, surely you've figured it out. You must have an inkling as to what we're after here.
    Zero: Hmph. How would I know anything about how you Mavericks think?
    Sunflower: My master remembers you well. You had the chance to become the ultimate destroyer. That's ancient history now...
  • Crosshair Aware: When preparing his Kill Sat.
  • Desperation Attack: Commands the Final Weapon from Mega Man X4 to drop a laser onto the player.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Despite not being animal-like, he looks rather feminine, and sounds feminine as well.
    • This is because Elinor Holt, the English VA who voiced Lumine, provides the voice for him.
  • Expy: of Star Man. His stage's concept also borrows from Cyber Peacock, only with more varied challenges.
  • Kill Sat: His Overdrive. When performing it, an image of the Final Weapon from X4 can be seen.
  • Light 'em Up
  • Light Is Not Good
  • Logical Weakness: Plants use sunlight to grow and become stronger. This means Sunflower is weak to Green Spinner, even though he himself is a plant.
  • Pillar of Light: His Desperation Attack. Also used for Zero.
  • Pinball Projectile: He can fire a ball of light mesh that bounces off walls, ceilings, floor and platforms. It can trap you in if it hits you.
  • Plant Person
  • Ray Gun: What Axl will get from him.
  • Self-Duplication: Can create fake clones of himself.
  • Spread Shot: Shining Ray shoots out a light projectile upwards that explodes outwardly like fireworks.
  • Take Cover!: During his Chasing Your Tail move, there'll be a floating platform (placed at random points) that can block the laser, allowing you to cover yourself.
  • Teleport Spam
  • Wave Motion Gun
