Mega Man X

Vile (known as VAVA in Japan) is a recurring antagonist from the Mega Man X series, having made his first appearance in Mega Man X. He appeared as a playable character in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X in an unlockable bonus mode with a different storyline.

Vile used to be a member of the Maverick Hunters prior to the first game in the series and was ranked S-A Class in Sigma's 17th Elite Unit prior to his commander's rebellion against humanity. Vile's personality is very arrogant, violent and rude, and he holds a deep grudge against Mega Man X and devotes his life to destroying X and proving that he is the stronger one. Vile makes frequent use of Ride Armors throughout the series and is equipped with a great variety of weapons.

In M.U.G.E.N, Vile has been made by various creators, with most versions either using sprites from the Mega Man X games or custom-made sprites, though Ayumu Sekijo's version is the only version with human proportions and plays the most like a fighting game character.

Barubaru's version


This version appears to be based on the second boss battle against Vile from Mega Man X3, using the sprites from said game, and has two forms with each having a different moveset, although he is quite unpolished and not very source-accurate, as many of his attacks are not exactly replicated and some are missing, and he has no sound effects and a custom but very underwhelming A.I.


Ayumu Sekijo's version


This version uses custom sprites and has a moveset mostly based on Vile's playable appearance in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X, with a few melee attacks thrown into the mix. Vile's gameplay is mostly centered around zoning with projectiles due to his lack of comboability, though he has the ability to temporarily summon his Ride Armor from Mega Man X to change his moveset and grant him Super Armor, as well as a 50% damage reduction.
