X (Mega Man)
X, also known as Mega Man X, (ロックマンエックス, Rockman X) is the protagonist of the Mega Man X sub-series of the Mega Man universe.
X appears in Super Smash Bros. 4 in several roles.
As a trophy
X's trophy appears in both versions, as X in North America and as Mega Man X in other English releases.
The hero of the Mega Man X series is a Reploid—a type of robot with the same thought capacity as a human. Built for combat, his powerful X-Buster is capable of Charge Shots. He also upgrades himself with parts he finds. In Smash Bros., he appears as part of Mega Man's Final Smash.
As a costume
As the final and ultimate creation of Dr. Light, X was created as a powerful robot with human-level capacities, and not bound by the rules of robotics as was the original Mega Man. He and Zero were the first known robots with this level of free will, known as Reploids. As a potentially dangerous robot at the time he was built, Dr. Light sealed him in a capsule for diagnostic training to ensure if these improvements were safe. About 100 years after the original Mega Man series, an archaeologist under the name of Dr. Cain, discovered the ruins of Dr. Light's lab which contained the capsule X was in. As a result, Dr. Cain decided to duplicate X to mass produce Reploids to become a standard living race on Earth alongside with humans. Due to their ability of complete free will, Reploids also have the potential of rebelling against society, such label to give to these Reploids were called "Mavericks". X's role as a Maverick Hunter entails protecting the world from Mavericks such as Sigma and defeating them.
