Zero is one of the main characters of the Mega Man X series, as well as the main protagonist and sole playable character of the Mega Man Zero series.
Zero is the final creation of Dr. Wily, programmed with the sole intention of defeating both Mega Man and Bass. However, due to a glitch in his programming, he would become violent and uncontrollable, forcing Dr. Wily to contain him in stasis. A century after Dr. Wily's death, Zero was unlocked from his imprisonment, and began to slaughter reploids as a result of his violent nature, including an entire Maverick Hunter unit. This ultimately led to a confrontation with Sigma, then a Maverick Hunter Commander, who barely escaped with his life. Not wanting Zero's potential to go to waste, Sigma ordered that Zero's body be taken back to Maverick Hunter HQ for further study. Unbeknownst to either of them, however, Zero's programming had infected Sigma during the battle, which would eventually lead to Sigma becoming a Maverick. After Zero was resuscitated, he became much more docile and obedient, with no memory of the events that had occurred since his creation. He quickly rose through the ranks to become a Class A Maverick Hunter, ultimately meeting and befriending X.
In M.U.G.E.N, Zero was made by various authors.
The first and most-known version of Zero for M.U.G.E.N. This version uses many moves of his own (such as a dashing slash from his sword as a special move and a time-stopping ability as a super move), and some of them are taken from Street Fighter (such as a Hadouken, a Shoryuken as special moves, and Shinku Hadouken and Shun Goku Satsu as super moves). He is an unique character in M.U.G.E.N in the fact that he can launch the opponent in the air, even in the air (that means, he can launch his opponent again in the middle of an air combo). Overall this character is good.
Using the same sprites as Ddarkbeing's, this Zero was made by DarkCipherLucius. It is much more custom, but all of his new moves are from Street Fighter, strangely having just a few moves of his own. However, this Zero is better than Ddarkbeing's in terms of quality.
This Zero is based on the incarnation of Zero who appears in the Mega Man Zero series, which also appeared as a playable character in the fighting game SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos. This Zero is based on that incarnation, however, N64Mario made two different versions of him, one loyal to the original game and another which is much more custom and has a lot of new moves. These are known as SvC Zero and CvS Zero, respectively. This Zero also has an alternate color scheme (downloaded separately) which is based on Omega Zero, including his darker armor and white aura.
Ariel AleX Co.//RedLine's Zero Edit
This Zero uses the sprites from Mega Man X4 through to Mega Man X6, and has techniques from Mega Man X4, X5, X6, X8, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. He uses the Japanese voice he had in Megaman X, and has a decent AI.
