Other varieties[]

Ice De Voux[]

Ice De Voux (アイス・ド・ボー Aisu Do Bō) is a variation of the Ball De Voux that appears in Blizzard Buffalo's stage in Mega Man X3. If hit, its protective ice shell will shatter and it will try to create a new one unless it is destroyed immediately. It is automatically destroyed if it falls on spikes.

Iwan De Voux[]

Iwan De Voux (イワン・ド・ボー Iwan Do Bō) is similar to Ice De Voux, except it has a 3-hitpoint shell made of rock, and is native to Tunnel Rhino's stage in Mega Man X3. Its modus operandi is the same as Ice De Voux. Its name is derived from the word, "iwa (イワ)", which means "stone" in Japanese.

Ball De Voux Normal Type[]

Ball De Voux Normal Type is a Ball De Voux from Mega Man X7 that behaves like the original, and is also dropped by Bee Bladers in the game's Opening Stage. They also appear in Snipe Anteator's Cyber Field stage and Palace Road.

Ball De Voux Shot Type[]

Ball De Voux Shot Type is a green Ball De Voux from Mega Man X7 equipped with a cannon. They attack by standing and firing slow long-range energy shots; however, their limited field of view makes them blind to targets positioned below, behind or beside them. Shot Types appear in the same stages as Normal Types, except Palace Road.


Deerball, known as Ball De Voux in Japan, is a variety from Mega Man X: Command Mission. They are summoned by Bee Bladers (referred to as B Bladers in-game). Deerballs will also regain 25% of current Life Energy (LE) every turn for as long as the B Blader survives.

When B Blader is defeated, and Deerball takes its turn, it loses the ability of auto-recovery and reduces its Speed by 25%, and also if the player wins the battle in this condition they will receive only 1/4 of the EXP which that Deerball normally gives.

Other appearances[]

  • Deerball appeared as an Unit Card in TEPPEN, working as a bellhop at Hotel Ba-Kansu.
