Hover Gunner (ホバーガンナー) is a small hovering cannon from Mega Man X4, X5 and X6. It appears in the stages of Jet Stingray, Split Mushroom, Cyber Peacock, Crescent Grizzly, the second final stage of Mega Man X5, and the opening stage of Mega Man X6.

Some Hover Gunners, like those in Split Mushroom's stage, fire in random directions, changing directions between shots. After firing a certain number of shots they will fly away. They are green in Mega Man X4 and Mega Man X6, and red in Mega Man X5.

Float Gunner

Float Gunner () is a modified version from Mega Man X8 that appears in Noah's Park, Booster Forest, Inferno and Pitch Black.

These hovering cannons can fire two shots in a spread formation in any direction; however, if powered-up by a MAME-Q, they will fire three. On Hard Mode, they will attack with a more powerful laser.
