In Mega Man X, the Sine Faller drops down certain ceiling holes. It will fly down across the screen in a zig-zag pattern and try to crash into X. It will retreat back into the top of the screen if it hits X, if X gets too far from it or if the screen pans, having it get too close to the top of the screen. If none of these happens, it will keep flying down toward the bottom of the screen while trying to stay close to X. It can be found in Boomer Kuwanger's stage and in the first three stages of Sigma's fortress.
