Fanfic / Maverick Hunter Quest

Go To
Welcome to the Fourth.

A quest/group-game on 4Chan's /qst/ board involving missions and adventures in the Mega Man X universe.

You are Anode, A-Rank Hunter with the Maverick Hunters 4th Overland Division, and crazy awesome things are about to go down. Set in the time period between Mega Man X2 and Mega Man X3, Maverick Hunter Quest follows an original character newly assigned to the ground forces of the Maverick Hunters, his new colleagues, their crazy base life and the missions they undertake.

Full of colorful characters with distinct personalities, Maverick Hunter Quest takes on Gameplay and Story Segregation and fleshes out the world of Mega Man X from the perspective of Reploids, their lives and lifestyles, and the tangible impact of Maverick attacks. Chock-full of Fanon created to support this deepened world, it's notable for having a high quality of storytelling and an oft-warped sense of humor. MHQ has even spawned fanart, which occasionally decorates threads alongside copious memes.


The threads are archived for easy reading, and while the update schedule has been erratic, MHQ is always a welcome sight on /qst/ and has regulars who eagerly contribute to the madness.

Maverick Hunter Quest contains examples of:

  • Ace Pilot: India.
  • A Handful for an Eye: Chaff Weasel basically fights like this. Anode's Blackout Flare lets him do likewise.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Played straight with X, but played with for hunters using VWES systems, who have a limit as to how many powers they can combine at a time.
  • Alternate History: For the Mega Man franchise itself to some extent, incorporating hints of backstory and events that did not appear in the games.
  • An Axe to Grind: The final enemy in the first part, Nicholz, wields a beam axe

How well does it match the trope?
