"I'm no Maverick... I'm not doing anything wrong.... I'm working hard to realize my master's dream of a new world."
―Gigabolt Man-O-War, Mega Man X8

Gigabolt Man-O-War, or Gigavolt Man-o-war, known as Gigabolt Dokragen (ギガボルト・ドクラーゲン Gigaboruto Dokurāgen?) in Japan, is a new generation Reploid from Mega Man X8 based on a jellyfish that supplied energy to Megalopolis. When he became a Maverick, he started causing chaos and siphoned off the energy supply of Megalopolis to Sigma. The Maverick Hunters had to chase him throughout the city with a Sirius Ride Chaser to stop his rampage. After receiving enough damage, he was forced to land and face the Hunters. Despite his actions, he denied turning Maverick, or at least was unaware that his actions were Maverick behavior.

Strategy

When the boss battle is on, Man-O-War will normally send out electric bolts and release miniature electrified jellyfish. After losing part of his life, he'll Overdrive and use his Thunder Dancer and strike the platform multiple times. If you placed a Crystal Wall on the platform, he would always strike it first. He's weak to the weapons obtained from Earthrock Trilobyte: Crystal Wall, Rekkyoudan, and Bound Blaster. Zero's D Glaive can be very useful with Rekkyoudan, allowing the player to hit him from a distance, which will save then from damage, and it will destroy many electrified jellyfishes with one hit.

Navigator Descriptions

Alia:

  • Keep the target in your sights as he moves. If you attack it enough, you should be able to stop its rampage.
  • You've almost caught up to the target! Take him down before you miss your chance!

Layer:

  • The target is on the move. Chase it down, and stop it. Watch out for the human aircars and signs. Drive safely!
  • The target seems to be absorbing Megalopolis' energy into itself... If you don't do something, we're in for a meltdown! Hurry and shoot him down!

Dialogues from Mega Man X8

Before defeating Four Mavericks

X: Gigavolt Man-o-war! Return Megalpolis' energy supply to normal! If you don't, the city will be, destroyed.

Gigabolt Man-O-War: .......... .........................

X: Has the change to Maverick even caused the loss of his speech capabilities?

Gigabolt Man-O-War: I'm no Maverick. Who are you, anyway?

X: I'm X! I'm a Maverick Hunter.

Zero: Return Megalopolis' power to normal. Now...

Gigabolt Man-O-War: ........ ................

Zero: He's so far gone, he can't even respond...

Gigabolt Man-O-War: I'm no Maverick... I'm not doing anything wrong...

Zero: Looks like I'll have to teach you a lesson!

Axl: What's going on here, Man-o-War? If you don't return the power to normal, the people of Megalopolis will suffer.

Gigabolt Man-O-War: ......... .....................

Axl: He's so far gone becoming Maverick he can't even talk...

Gigabolt Man-O-War: What? What's a Maverick? Do you know what it is?

Axl: Maverick? That's an out of control Reploid like yourself. I'll have to take you down.


After defeating Four Mavericks

X: Gigavolt Man-o-war! Has Sigma made you go Maverick?

Gigabolt Man-O-War: .......... ...........................

X: Has the change to Maverick even caused the loss of his speech capabilities?

Gigabolt Man-O-War: I'm no Maverick... I'm not doing anything wrong.... I'm working hard to realize my master's dream of a new world.

X: You're Maverick! I'll have to stop you!

Zero: Megalopolis' power out of control? How does this fit into Sigma's evil plan?

Gigabolt Man-O-War: ......... ..................

Zero: He's so far gone, he can't even respond.

Gigabolt Man-O-War: My master needs energy to make his new world a reality.

Zero: A new world?! Well, that plan's not getting any farther than this!

Axl: Has Sigma made you go Maverick? If I don't do something soon, there'll be a meltdown and we'll all be toast.

Gigabolt Man-O-War: .......... ....................

Axl: I can't believe you would claim loyalty to a dirtbag like Sigma.

Gigabolt Man-O-War: I'm no Maverick. I'm in complete control of myself and my actions.

Axl: Not realizing the evil you're doing just proves you're a Maverick!

Trivia

  • In the English version, he's called "Gigabolt" in his introduction and "Gigavolt" in conversations and in the ending credits. That may be because there is no difference in the pronunciation of "V" and "B" in Japanese.
  • "Dokragen" is derived from "kurage", Japanese for jellyfish.
  • Man-O-War refers to a Portuguese Man o' War, which is often confused for a jellyfish.
  • A normal slash from Zero can stun him, if Earthrock Trilobyte has already been defeated.
  • If the player enters the Dynasty stage again after defeating Gigabolt Man-O-War, he's replaced by a new-generation Reploid copying him.
  • The Dynasty stage is located in the southwest of Australia (it may be an artificial island that doesn't exist today).
  • Gigabolt Man-O-War is the second boss in the Mega Man X series fought in his own stage before the "real" boss battle; the first one is Jet Stingray, who is also fought while using a Ride Chaser. It is interesting to note that both Reploids are based on marine animals. It could also be thought that Gigabolt Man-O-War is technically one of the strongest Mavericks because of this.
  • Gigabolt Man-O-War's appearance is similar to that of Galaxy Man's.
  • Along with Avalanche Yeti and Gravity Antonion, Gigabolt Man-O-War have only one main theme song, while the others have two.
