Mega Man X Bosses by BrendanCorris Mega Man X Bosses by BrendanCorris
FOR INDIVIDUAL CHARACTER CLOSE-UPS, FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW.

Here are the eight maverick boss characters from Capcom's Mega Man X for the SNES. I thought these guys were awesome the second I first saw them on the select screen in '95. This was one of my favorite SNES games, and though the MMX series got very stale after a while, forcing me to lose the previous respect I had for it, MMX1 still remains a great game and a nostalgic classic to me. The robots pictured here are -
Launch Octopus
Sting Chameleon
Armored Armadillo
Storm Eagle
Spark Mandrill
Chill Penguin
Boomer Kuwanger
Flame Mammoth
I guess Sting C. is my favorite, though it's hard to say because Armored Armadillo and Boomer are awesome too, as well as Spark Mandrill & Launch, and, hell, it's too hard to decide. They're all badass. Enjoy.

A conversation that must have happened when creating the MMX1 mavericks.
Dude 1: Let's make them all animals!
Dude 2: Yeah!
Dude 1: Let's have a penguin and a woolly mammoth!
Dude 2: Sounds awesome!
Dude 1: Let's give them both ice powers!
Dude 2: Uhh, how about no. For the sake of balance, only one of them can have ice powers.
Dude 1: Okay, how about let's give the penguin ice powers.
Dude 2: That works, what will the mammoth have?
Dude 1: I don't know, uh.......fire powers?
Dude 2: That doesn't make sense! Why would a mammoth have fire powers?
Dude 1: I don't know! Why would a mandrill have electric powers? And what the heck is a kuwanger?!
Dude 2: Fine, Flame Mammoth it is. Hope this game makes some money!

Dude 1: Let's have an eagle!
Dude 2: An eagle....with arms!
Dude 1: Wait, what?
Dude 3: Oh, I get it. So he can shoot with them.
Dude 2: Heck yeah!
Dude 3: My turn! Let's have an armadillo!
Dude 1: A purple armadillo!
Dude 2: What?!
Dude 1: Hey, I like purple! And it's not like any of these mavericks make sense anymore.

Dude 1: I have an awesome idea for an X2 level.
Dude 2: What is it?
Dude 1: X has to quickly climb up a volcano or he dies in the eruption.
Dude 2: Sweet! Who's the boss of it? I bet it's a fire breathing dragon!
Dude 1: No, I'm saving the dragon maverick for X4.
Dude 2: Then what is it? Flame Iguana? Flame Phoenix? Flame Firefly?
Dude 1: Nope. It's Flame Stag.
Dude 2: A male deer? Seriously?
Dude 1: What's wrong with him being a stag?
Dude 2: Nothing. I'm just worried he'll accidentally cook himself into tasty venison.

Dude 1: We have a rhino with a drill horn, a crawfish with crush claws, an ice themed buffalo.
Dude 2: Hey, I just noticed something. Finally, these mavericks actually make sense!
Dude 1: Third time's a charm!
Dude 2: We just need more cool ideas.
Dude 1: Ride armor!
Dude 2: Yes!! And let's finally play as Zero!
Dude 1: I've been waiting for this moment since X1!
Dude 2: But, with a few rules: You can only play as him one time in the entire game, his gun is weaker than X's, his sword kinda sucks, and he can't be used against bosses.
Dude 1: Crap! Why even play as him at all?
Dude 2: I'm saving all his awesomeness for X4.

Dude 2: In X4, Zero loses his arm cannon, just uses the Z Saber, and can't get armor like X
Dude 1: WHY?!
Dude 2: It's called challenge, let's also add Ultimate Armor for X, which you need a code to get it.
Dude 1: Ok. LET'S ALSO MAKE X'S GAMEPLAY BORING!
Dude 2: Agreed. Let's also give Zero a sucky arm cannon in X5!

Awesome, I love the stylization you've got going on here. =D
I think I like Octopus the best, personally, though that might just be my primary affinity for cephalopods talking for me.

I remember when I was younger and Sting Chameleon and I were on our last hit. I didn't have the proper power with me, so the fight was tougher than it should've been. That's when we both fired at the same time, and I wasn't sure if I'd make it. But then, as if by a miracle, I land the first hit, and Sting Chameleon was destroyed! It was like one of those photo finish moments, and I was just so psyched that I couldn't wait to tell everyone what just happened.

It was one of the most epic thing ever in my opinion. Sting's shot was literally right about to hit me, too, so the victory came as a really huge surprise.

All right, I commented on the other one, saying witch ones were terrifying. Now it's a matter of kicking ass; or, more to the point them kicking X's ass and which one's look like they fit the bill. And, to be honest, Chill Penguin looks like the only exception to meeting that goal. Chill Penguin being the joke of the group; all is as it should be.

Great drawing, yeah Megaman X was an awesome game. Did you ever play the remake Maverick Hunter X?

Also just out of curiosity when did you feel the X series went stale?
Reply
:iconbrendancorris:
BrendanCorris Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2011
I never played that remake, though I do recall hearing they were making a new version of MMX sometime around 2005.
I personally feel it went stale at X5. That game let me down so much. They were building up so many good plot twists that just either never happened in X5+ or happened very rushed and crappy. X5 was just such a massive down grade from X4. No cutscenes, no voice overs, no new stage enemies (all recycled from X4 with some exceptions), even the gameplay wwas easy and uninteresting, especially with Alia (still don't know where that character came from) telling exactly how to beat every part before you reach it. The boss sprites even seemed badly animated and stiff. X5 should have been the biggest megaman game ever, since it was when the major conflict was supposed to start, and with the huge delay before it's release. X6 was even worse. Every game after X5 was unnecesary. And I feel the story of X5 should have lasted over the course of more than one game. They could have tried something new for a change, like more than 8 bosses, or each boss has multiple areas and battles. I still think the series should have ended the original way it was planned to - X killing Zero to stop the maverick virus and Zero staying dead. That guy came back to life so many times you don't even care when he dies after awhile.
Well, anyway, glad you like my picture. Thanks.

Yeah, most people seem to say that X6 or X7 is when the series got bad for them. Never heard X5 being this much of a letdown before though, but then again it's one of the few X games that I haven't played, so...

Admittedly though, I do have somewhat of a soft spot for X6. It might not have been the best X game and sure the levels were really frustrating, but I did like the story for the most part (Aside from Zero's half assed resurrection, he should have stayed dead.) the boss designs looked pretty nice and I have to give them credit for using a main villain other than Sigma, I never really cared for that character and Gate was a pretty interesting villain. (Yeah I know you battled Sigma at the end but I thought it was a nice change of pace that a new villain was behind it all.)

Plus I think they tried undoing the damage they did when they brought Zero back and actually had his ending in X6 be his actual closure in the X series leading into the Zero series. But again, the way they brought back Zero was...meh.

Although X7 was a train wreck from the start, I can't even think about defending that one.

While the games after X5 might have been unnecessary, X8 was actually pretty good in its own right. The Mavericks looked cool, the gameplay was fun and they also had another villain in it (although yeah, Sigma was in this game too) I'd actually suggest giving X8 a rental just to try it out, it's a HUGE improvement over X6 and 7. The voice acting wasn't too bad in this game either. Same deal with Maverick Hunter X (aside from the new villain, it was just ol' Sigma), as far as remakes go it actually has the feel of X1 while at the same time having some pretty nice redesigns here and there, the only thing that sort of bothered me was how Vile's levels only had one song in all them, other than that though it was good.

I also like Command Mission even though most people don't seem to like it, it was more of a side story than anything, but it had some of my favourite bosses, some nice new characters and the story was good...well...until Chapter 10. But I still enjoyed that game.

But if X6 and X7 turned you away from the series too much by now, then I understand.
