Maverick Hunters

Mega Man X Mega Man X
X returns for his toughest battle against Sigma yet! Still a strong leader of the Maverick Hunters, after the unfortunate death of General and the Repliforce, X has begun to add new Hunters to the ranks, four of which are introduced in X5. Maintaining his strong sense of justice, X is prepared to do whatever it takes to crush the Sigma virus and stop the space colony from destroying Earth.

This time though, those haunting messages that have appeared from the previous episodes may finally come true, and X might find himself battling someone possibly stronger and more dangerous than Sigma himself...
Zero Zero
Along for the ride, Zero returns to fight for justice and crush Sigma. Utilizing his new Z-Buster, Zero now can fire energy blasts to combat Mavericks as well as using his trusty Z-Saber. As a fellow leader of the now-enormous Maverick Hunters, Zero can learn new techniques from defeated bosses, allowing him to perform awesome moves to crush his enemies.

This time, the nightmares and visions Zero had in X4 about his creation (Dr Wily????) will re-surface and will test his true strength and loyalty to his friends. A past event may even return and repeat history for Zero...
Dr Light Dr. Light
Dr. Light returns to give X new enhancements, this time ever more cautious with his devices and more concerned for X's well-being. The situation with Sigma has become so chaotic, that Dr. Light feels the need to take stronger action than ever before, especially now that it is almost certain that his former rival Dr. Wily has been behind the entire Maverick revolt. Unlike previous X games, this time Dr. Light will interact a lot more and will play a vital role in X and Zero's survival.
Alia Alia
Alia is head of data analysis and navigation systems of Maverick Hunter HQ. She will greatly assist you during the game as X or Zero progress through each stage. She'll give you heaps of information about each stage, any dangerous traps, items and a rundown on the boss at the end of each stage. Always listen to Alia, everything she has to say is important, and she has earned her place and respect as one of the top Maverick Hunters.
Signas Signas
Signas is the new leader and commander of Maverick Hunter HQ. Bearing a similar resemblance to Colonel of Repliforce, Signas is just as strong and resourceful. Signas commands every mission executed by the Hunters, and he also often plans out major operations, overseeing them carefully.

Very loyal to humans and reploids, Signas will stop at nothing to ensure that all Mavericks are eliminated, as he has already proven to be a worthy leader and valuable Hunter.
Douglas Douglas
Douglas is the HQ's top mechanic and engineer. He has earned his place in the ranks of the Maverick Hunters by always being prepared and supplying the Hunters with valuable devices and equipment vital to their missions. Douglas' main role in X5 is to prepare and rebuild the Enigma cannon once X and Zero gain the parts required, as well as the preparation of the Shuttle's mission to destroy Eurasia.
Lifesavor Lifesavor
Lifesavor (aka Lifesaver) is the repair mechanic of Maverick Hunter HQ. A well respected member, Lifesavor's job becomes more important than ever when Sigma spreads the Maverick Virus, as he is responsible for repairing any infected reploids, he is also trying to discover an antibody to combat to virus.

As he monitors the conditions of X and Zero when they go on field missions, Lifesavor is always suspicious of them, as he has been unable to decipher their body systems, and worries about Zero's unusual reaction to the virus.


Dynamo Dynamo
Dynamo is a rogue reploid who at first seems to be a true mercenary, but is actually working with Sigma to spread the Maverick Virus all over Earth. He doesn't pose as much a threat to the Hunters as Vile and Sigma's previous henchmen have, but he mainly intends to disturb their progress and waste precious time.

Overconfident and arrogant, Dynamo gives X and Zero more trouble than he's worth, giving them only a hint of what to expect from the battle against Sigma.
Sigma Sigma
Sigma's back, and this time he's got his sights set on Zero rather than X. Not regretting the downfall of Repliforce, Sigma has devised his most devious plan ever, to infect the entire world with the Maverick Virus, as well as causing the space colony Eurasia to crash and destroy most life on the planet.

Sigma's main intention was to flood Zero's body with the virus, as he knew that Zero was the only one who's body would use the virus to grow stronger. Hoping that Zero would then become his "true self," Sigma could then use him to crush the Hunters once and for all. Sigma knows the truth behind Zero's creation, but he holds back hoping that hiding the truth will draw Zero further in.

As always, his arrogance and overconfidence is his weakness, and due to his attention fixed fully on Zero, he doesn't realize the fact that X is also growing stronger in his fight against the Mavericks - this time fighting X will be Sigma's own challenge.
Dr Wily Dr. Wily
No, he doesn't appear in the game, but it's now as clear as mud, Dr. Wily is Zero's creator and the creator of the dreaded Maverick Virus. As his final action before death took him, Wily found out about Dr. Light's secret plans to build X, and to counter his rival, he created Zero to eventually destroy X. Wily also created the virus to infect any reploid easily to consume them, making them obey his last order.

During Sigma's first battle with Zero, the virus left Zero and consumed Sigma, making him the new leader of the Mavericks. Zero was repaired and reprogrammed by the Maverick Hunters, and has ended up working alongside X. Dr. Wily's full plans might be revealed in the future, he might even make a reappearance himself somehow...
