In Mega Man Zero, Aztec Falcon 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. Ciel asked Zero to destroy the Disposal Center and save a captured Resistance soldier, and defeats Aztec Falcon.
Aztec Falcon's 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. His arms take no damage from Buster Shots, regardless of whether or not they are charged. Depending on his position, he can use his arms to protect his body from Buster shots. 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.
Defeating Aztec Falcon in Mega Man Zero earns Zero the Thunder Chip.
- Dash - Aztec Falcon dashes constantly.

A Mutos Reploid under Harpuia's command. Aztec Falcon acts as warden and executioner to all Reploids accused of being Mavericks. Under Copy X's harsh laws governing Reploids in the wake of the energy crisis, there are no known cases of a Reploid being judged innocent and released once they have been arrested.
In the manga, Aztec Falcon is sent by Harpuia to fight against Zero so Harpuia could analyze Zero and plan a strategy before he fights him. Aztec was killed by Zero, and Harpuia didn't care. This version of Aztec Falcon is cowardly, comical, and has a mouth.
- Aztec Falcon has a cameo appearance in Mega Man ZX as one of the mounts in the carousel ride of Area H.
- Aztec Falcon is the first Mutos Reploid boss in the Mega Man Zero series.
- Aztec Falcon is the only Mutos Reploid who Zero fights only once throughout the entire series.
- While it is impossible to own an Elemental Chip prior to fighting him, using a cheating device reveals that he is weak against ice. Z Chaser is only possible route that use an Ice Chip to fighting him.
- Aztec is one of the few bosses in the franchise to have more than one defeat animation (see right)
