Bindholder (バインドホルダー) is a slow moving enemy Mechaniloid surrounded by an energy field from Mega Man X8. If the player is caught in its field, they will receive damage until Tag Assist is used to break free. On Hard Mode Bindholders will actively pursue the player. If powered up by a MAME-Q, Bindholders will receive a 2X speed increase.

They appear in the stages Pitch Black, Inferno, Booster Forest and Jakob, and in the cutscene Lumine is captured by Vile after clearing Noah's Park. Vile also uses Bindholders as a distraction during his boss encounter at the top of Jakob.
