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.

Strategy

Magna Centipede poses and attacks like a ninja, teleporting around the room and sending shurikens. He'll also cling to the ceiling or attract X magnetically to infect him with the Maverick Virus. If X is infected by the virus, he will be unable to charge his X-Buster. Further virus attacks drastically reduce rapid fire, jumping, and dashing abilities. His 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.

Trivia

  • 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) (excluding Zero himself) are all arthropods.
