D-1000 (ディーサウザンド Dī-Sauzando) is the boss of the intro stage of Mega Man X6. It is comprised of a large, seemingly immobile Mechaniloid and a smaller robot that operates it from above.

Attacks and strategy

It mainly attacks by charging into the player, either from above (which can be avoided by ducking) or by adjusting to X's altitude and charging from the left or the right (depending on where the player is). When enough damage is dealt, it may also fire energy balls from its mouth that explode upwards when they hit the ground. The eye orb avoids the player by teleporting from one side to another, but can also fire slow moving orange shots at X.

Striking the eye orb not only damages it more, but makes the big Mechaniloid crash to the ground, immobilizing it momentarily. The large body can also be hit, but it takes much less damage and will not cause it to become immobile.

The D-1000 would later appear during the Worlds Unite crossover as part of the Mechaniloid army created by Sigma-1 on the Lost Hex.


Turbo Cannon

  • After it was defeat in Mega Man X6, Zero Nightmare would show up and give D-1000 a final blow before leaving.
  • In the game Rockman X DiVE, the weapon Turbo Cannon, known as Thousa-Launcher (サウザランチャー Sauzaranchā) in Japanese, is based on D-1000.
