Dig Labour (ディグレイバー Digureibā), translated as Degraver in Mega Man X: Command Mission, is a construction Reploid[1] from the Mega Man X series.


Dig Labours attack by throwing pickaxes. If a pickaxe hits the player, the one who tossed it laughs. In the first Mega Man X game they appear in the stages of Armored Armadillo and Flame Mammoth, and also in Sigma's hideout. They appear in Flame Mammoth's stage in Mega Man Xtreme 2.

Mega Man X: Command Mission

Degravers appear as workers in Central Tower during Chapter 2, and in the Gimialla Mine X can make trades between four different colored mining Mechaniloids with the same appearance as Degravers to give their pickaxes to the right owner. A broken Degraver can be found in Gimialla Mine and repaired to be used in the Deployment Center.

Degravers appear as enemies in the Melda Ore Plant, where they are encountered frozen in the Ore Plant External Tank. If they are attacked by X's group, they will retaliate, having a high chance to counter all attacks. If the player uses the item Warm-up, Cure One or Cure All to unfreeze a Degraver, he will be thankful and run away from the battle if not harmed, dropping different items.

They also reappear in Rockman X DiVE.
