Anubis Necromancess, known as Anubistep Necromances (アヌビステップ・ネクロマンセス Anubisuteppu Nekuromansesu) in Japan, is a boss character from the Mega Man Zero series. He is a Mutos Reploid based on the jackal god of death, Anubis, and is a member of Fighting Fefnir's Scorched Earth Squadron.


Before his appearance in the games, Anubis Necromancess "died" during an operation from the Scorched Earth Squadron, but revived himself. Anubis Necromancess II was killed right away when a shuttle crashed into him, but revived again.[1]

In Mega Man Zero, Anubis Necromancess the Third (アヌビステップ・ネクロマンセスⅢ世 Anubistep Necromances III) is the boss of the "Find Shuttle" mission, where he is fought by Zero when he tries to find survivors from a shuttle that crashed on the desert (presumably the same that killed "Anubis Necromancess II"). He later revives as Anubis Necromancess IV and is fought a second time by Zero in the final stage.

Anubis is later resurrected by Dr. Weil in Mega Man Zero 3 as Anubis Necromancess V, and leads an army to attack the Resistance Base from the southern desert.


As long as his "heart" isn't destroyed, Anubis Necromancess can use nanobots to repair himself. He can also dismantle and restore his body to hide within sand, and use the nanobots to control his surroundings, including modifiying the shape of sand to create walls, dunes, and quicksand, and summoning "zombies".[1]


  • Anubis will attack using his flying cane.
  • Anubis will summon a pair of sand walls with spikes on top (two halves of an electrified sarcophagus in Mega Man Zero 3) to smash Zero. Touching the spikes or getting squished will not instantly kill Zero.
  • Anubis will summon Pantheon Zombies.
  • In Mega Man Zero 3, Anubis Necromancess V can modify the sand, making dunes or turning it into quicksand.

  • Because of the name "Necromancess", his gender is confused as female, but he actually is a male necromancer.
  • Despite being a member of the Scorched Earth Squadron, Anubis Necromancess III is oddly weak to fire in the first game.
  • He can be seen in the boss room of Hellbat Schilt in the background; he is right by the entrance to the boss room.
