Aztec Falcon, known as Aztefalcon (アステファルコン Asutefarukon) in Japan, is a character from the Mega Man Zero series. Aztec Falcon is a Mutos Reploid based on a falcon and is a member of Sage Harpuia's Strong Air Battalion.

In Mega Man Zero, he is the boss of the second mission. He was sent by Harpuia to the Disposal Center to dispose of the "Mavericks" there, and thought that Zero was one of them. Zero was on a mission to save the captured Reploids, and defeat Aztec Falcon.

Despite his apparent destruction, Aztec Falcon also appeared in the beginning of Mega Man Zero 2 as a transport for Harpuia and in Harpuia's mini-game in Mega Man Zero 3.


His arms are two big lightning rods, from which he shoots lightning arrows and, at A or S rank, can electrifies the floor with his EX skill. He can also open his arm, which then acts as a magnet and drags Zero towards him. This boss also has a time limit to defeat him before the captive Reploids are killed by the compressor.
