"Welcome X. Your destruction is at hand!"
―Agile, Mega Man X2

Agile (アジール Ajīru) is one of the three X-Hunters in Mega Man X2. He is characterized by his fast movement and expertly wielded beam-sword, and (in the Japanese version) his polite speech pattern and reserved personality. His role in the organization is as a spy to discover enemy secrets and as an acting combat commander, taking the forefront on battles.[1]


First Encounter


X facing Agile

When first encountering him in one of the hidden rooms, he acts as his name implies, dashing along the ground and attacking with a series of lightning-fast slashes. One attack that Agile will use often is an upward slash, that will create a large crescent energy beam; these arcs cover a large portion of the room making them difficult to dodge. The position of the energy arc (how high or how low) depends on where X is on screen. He will also make a dash from one side of the room to another while performing a flurry of slashes, but only if X is on the ground too much. Agile is easy to manipulate in this battle; the best strategy is to cling high on the wall, drop down to avoid his saber's crescent beam, attack (the X-Buster will suffice), and then quickly climb back up, and repeat. His weakness in this battle is the Magnet Mine.

Second Encounter

For Agile's second and final encounter in the third X-Hunter Stage. He appears from above in a flight type form known as Agile Flyer (アジールフライヤー) attached to the center of the room. Agile will hold his position at the top of the screen, erratically moving from side to side. Throughout the battle he'll create spiked platforms from his sides that he will drop, trying to crush X; also whenever Agile creates a new set of platforms he will at the same time release four purple balls of electricity that will run down the walls and across the floor. Missiles will also fire periodically from both the left and right sides of the screen. Magnet Mine (fully charged or not) is the best weapon to use in this battle, as it can be aimed up to his position; it's also good for countering the missiles. Another effective weapon against Agile is the Shoryuken found in the stage. However, X must have full health to use it, so it is best used at the start of the battle to defeat him in one hit.

  • Agile's name is actually a French word (though having the same meaning as it does in English), pronounced "AAH-zheel". The other X Hunters also share this naming convention.
  • Though Agile's second form can be defeated with any weapon, the Giga Attack and the Magnet Mine are the most effective. Also, the Shoryuken, which is conveniently hidden in his very stage, can defeat him in one hit.
