Magna Centipede, known in Japan as Magne Hyakulegger (マグネ・ヒャクレッガー Magune Hyakureggā?), is a centipede-like Reploid in the video game Mega Man X2. He is a former Maverick Hunter of the 0th Special Unit that was captured by Sigma's forces during a mission and brainwashed. Now a Maverick, Magna Centipede was stationed at a computer center, where he began transmitting the Maverick Virus around the world. X fought against Magna Centipede in the computer center and destroyed him.

Magna Centipede also appears in the Game Boy game Mega Man Xtreme as a reproduced boss data after completing the game once, in the Boss Attack mode from Mega Man Xtreme 2, and as one of Metal Shark Player's attacks in Mega Man X6.


Magna Centipede poses and attacks like a ninja, moving fast and teleporting around the room. He'll also cling to the ceiling, throw shurikens or attract X magnetically to his tail in order to infect him with some disabling virus. This attack can be avoided by button mashing, but if the player fails to do so, he will continually lose physical abilities each virus injection. Firstly, Magna Centipede drains the ability to charge the X-Buster. Further virus attacks drastically reduce rapid fire, dashing and jumping abilities, in that order. Magna Centipede's main weapon, Magnet Mine, can seek out its targets, but if the Silk Shot is used against him, his tail will break off, rendering him unable to use the Magnet Mine or poison X. He is also vulnerable to Strike Chain.

Other media

Rockman X

Magna Centipede appears in the Rockman X2 manga, where he disguises himself as female human model reploid in an attempt to get close to X, revealing himself only after dealing him a mortal blow.

Mega Mission

In the carddas Rockman X Mega Mission 2, he is revived as "Magne Hyakulegger L".

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

Magna Centipede was one of the many Mavericks revived by Sigma for the Worlds Unite crossover. After an initial assault on the good guys, he is sent to the world of Alex Kidd to plant a Unity Engine when he runs afoul of Alex and Stella. They challenge him to a game of rock-paper-scissors over the right to activate the engine, but Centipede's multiple limbs give him an unfair advantage. In response, Alex and Stella smash him to pieces.




  • His Japanese name, "Hyaku-legger", means "one hundred legs".
    • The name Hyakulegger was chosen because it was believed that Japanese children at the time would not know the word centipede.[1]
  • The area where the X-Hunters were spying on X early in the game is Magna Centipede's stage. This is also the last stage, where X fights against Sigma in a room below where the Chop Register appears. Because of this, the player can't fully revisit his stage once all four X-Hunter Stages are cleared.
  • He and Centaur Man both have a pair of extra limbs. Magna Centipede has extra arms and Centaur Man has extra legs.
  • It is interesting to note that he and all the other known former members of the Zero Unit (0th Special Unit) are all arthropods, excluding Zero himself.
