Mega Man X: Command Mission is a video game released in 2004 by Capcom for the PlayStation 2 and GameCube. It is a Gaiden Game to the Mega Man X series, considered non-canonical despite references to events from previous games, and also differs in being an RPG rather than a platform action game.The setting is Giga City, an artificial island in the Pacific Ocean built for mining Force Metal. A team of three Maverick Hunters, X, Zero and Shadow, are sent to the island to stop the Rebellion of reploids led by Epsilon.
Action Commands: Each character has at least one Action Trigger; in exchange for all of the character's subweapon energy, the Trigger starts up a simple minigame which can unleash some of the game's most impressive attacks.
Bonus Boss: Rafflesian and Duckbill Mole can be fought if the player finds keys to unlock two locked rooms in previous dungeons. And after beating the game, the player can go beneath Resistance HQ and fight the Ninetails clan.
La Résistance: The Rebellion. But there was also anotherLa Résistance group against this insurgence, to which the heroes joined up with during the game.
Laser Blade: Various bladed weapons called "Beam <object>".
Legacy Character: Steel Massimo, who takes up the name and armor of the real Massimo after he dies.
The Load: Massimo. In his basic form, he takes 150% damage from all sources, meaning despite his slightly higher than normal HP, he's incredibly vulnerable. His enhanced attack is offset by his very slow speed. His trigger into Golden Armor Massimo makes him take 50% damage from all sources, but it's limited in how much he can use it. As soon as you get anyone else, you'll probably end up pulling him out of your party and never using him again.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: After you beat Epsilon, X takes his Supra-Force Metal and hands it to the real Big Bad, who uses it to turn into a giant monster "god" and take over the universe. Way to go, X.
To be fair, X had no idea who the Big Bad was at the time, so he was trying to do the right thing.
Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: After the first battle with Great/God Redips, Ferham shows up and tries to yank a piece of Supra-Force Metal off his shoulder to weaken him. But she's not strong enough. Great Redips gets angry and blasts her...knocking the metal down with her. Thanks for the help!
One-Hit Kill: Some enemies can perform this on you. The Meltdown will do this if you don't kill it in time. The Tail Clan have the Annhilator Hadouken attack, which has a chance of doing this to you.
Sdrawkcab Alias: the biggest clue to the Big Bad: Spider/Redips. It was supposedly lampshaded in the instruction booklet, which had the excuse of misspelling the latter name so that no one would make the connection until the reveal.
When Things Spin, Science Happens: At the top of Central Tower is the Resistance headquarters. In there is a great big computer, and you can notice a number of spinning things throughout the room that make it operate. (Early in the game, you even find a techie repairing the central spinner underneath the main computer console.)
Whip It Good: Ferham, the robot dominatrix of the Rebellion Cadre.
Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Just when you thought defeating the Rebellion signals the end of the game, your superior betrays you, steals the Supra Force Metal, and turns out to be the real Big Bad.
