"You are strong compared to the others. I was bored because there is no strong Reploid left on the ground. Although I was not ordered to kill, it's too hard, isn't it? Hee hee hee."
―Blaze Heatnix, Mega Man X6

Blaze Heatnix (ブレイズ・ヒートニックス Bureizu Hītonikkusu?) is a phoenix-based Reploid in Mega Man X6, created by Gate to withstand extremely hot temperatures.


Blaze Heatnix is a Reploid modeled after a phoenix. He was created by Gate with the ability to handle extremely hot temperatures, allowing him to explore hot spots deep beneath the Earth's crust. Later he became a member of a disaster prevention team created to respond to increased activity from active volcanoes. However, because Heatnix was so much more powerful than the other members, he would ignore his coworkers (seeing them as weak and useless) in dangerous situations, disregard them if they ran into danger, resulting in many losses. Gate was demanded to weaken Heatnix to keep him on par with the other members, but Gate ignored these requests. As a result, Heatnix was eventually disposed of for his behavior. Gate later revived him to use him in the Nightmare investigation, and sent him to the magma area.


Blaze Heatnix was a very cruel and arrogant Reploid, who delighted in the destruction of those weaker than himself. He had a strong "might makes right" ideology.

Power and Abilities

Blaze Heatnix's primary ability is to fill up his battle room with magma, creating a constant hazard. To attack, Heatnix will fire off chunks of magma that break up into smaller pieces. He can also fire white hot blades of magma energy. As his ultimate attack, he will dash back a forth like a comet with a huge plume of fire surrounding him.

  • Magma Stream: Blaze Heatnix will yell the attack name and, depending on where he is on the screen, purple (non-fatal) magma will fill half the screen. If he's at the top of the screen, it will rise from the ground. If he's at the bottom of the screen, it will descend from the ceiling:

Low Phase:

At this phase, as the magma is located under the feet. He will "dive" into the magma and "swim" around in it, and then try to jump up at the character's current position.

  • Magma Shot (マグマショット): When he jumps up, he may spit fireballs. Destroy these with any weapon available.

High Phase:

The magma will, however, levitate on the top half of the screen, which is against physics as it's a semi-molten rock. Blaze Heatnix will fly from one side of the screen to the other. Also, drops of lava will fall down continuously at the holes.

  • Magma Wave: He will fire crescents either high or low. Crouch if they go high, jump and air dash if they go low.
  • God Bird (ゴッドバード): He flies off screen, then fly across as a blazing invulnerable phoenix. He can (once again) come either high or low, and from either side of the screen.

Stage enemies

Enemies in Blaze Heatnix's stage, the Magma Area:


When Playing as X

??: Welcome! I've been waiting for you! You are strong compared to the others. I was bored because there is no strong Reploid left on the ground. Although I was not ordered to kill, it's too hard, isn't it? Hee hee hee.

X: You must be Blaze Heatnix...

Blaze Heatnix: Brainwashing Reploids is lame. Don't you think so? Let's fight to see who's the strongest!

When Playing as Zero

Zero: It's too hot here. Let's finish this...

??: A vigorous guy! I've been waiting! You look so strong compared with the others. I was bored because there is no strong Reploid left on the ground. Although I was not ordered to kill, it's too hard, isn't it? Hee hee hee.

Zero: I'm not interested in your talk... Will you fight or not?

Blaze Heatnix: Good. Let's fight!

Archie Comics

Blaze Heatnix was one of the many Mavericks revived by Sigma-1 while his Mechaniloid army was attacking the Sky Patrol. Recreated by the power of the Genesis Portals and Unity Engines, he then joined an army of Mavericks deployed by Sigma against the heroes and then in an invasion of various worlds.

Rockman X6 - Blaze Heatnix Xtreme (9)


  • Blaze Heatnix appears to be the only fire-based Maverick who is especially weak to a ground/earth-based weapon, despite there being both a water and an ice-based weapon at X's disposal.
  • Blaze Heatnix's stage is considered by many to be one of the most annoying stages in Mega Man history. The entire stage has X or Zero fighting six Nightmare Snakes which feature four weak points in the form of translucent green cores. You are assaulted by one at the very beginning of the stage.
    • Blaze Heatnix's stage is the only one in the entire series to have the biggest ammount of Sub-Bosses.
  • His lava drop attack calls to mind the final stage in Mega Man 2, where lava regularly falls from the ceiling on the way to the boss.
