Zero is the deuteragonist of the Mega Man X series. He is the successor of Bass and considered to be one of the greatest creation of Dr Albert W. Wily.


In the year 20XX Dr. Albert W. Wily was working on a machine that had the capabilities to take over the world and defeat Mega Man. Using the element found from Bass known as Bassnium, Dr. Wily almost had enough time to complete his creation which was cut short when he had died. About 100 years later Zero was found and went on a murderous rampage killing all in sight. He then met the Maverick Hunter: Sigma, they had a one on one fight where Sigma had barely succeeded. In the process of defeating Zero, Sigma had contracted the Maverick Virus inside Zero and then spread it amongst most of his colleagues. Now it was up to X and the reformed Zero to defeat the Mavericks any time they had showed up.

Alternative Forms

Awakened Zero

When in a near death situation, the remaining traces of the Maverick virus activate. This awakens the true power of Zero, boosting his power, speed, and endurance to the point that if he were to stay in the form for more than two minutes, he would be able to resist almost all of X's attacks.

Black Zero

Acquired via unknown means, Black Zero gets doubled defense, doubled attack power with the Z-Saber, increases the amount of energy he has with his variable weapons, doubles speed, and reduces damage of fire and fire-based attacks to 75%.

Absolute Zero

After defeating Duckbill Mole, Zero gains access to his absolute form, a form that greatly enhances Zero's speed, strength and durability. This form also allows Zero to fly, use the Water-Elemental attacks Killer Left and Brutal Right, and his Z-Saber is replaced with the claws on his hands which are arguably more powerful than the Z-Saber.
