"Send destructive energy upward in areas with ceilings."
―In-game text, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

Hot Icicle (ホットアイシクル Hotto Aishikuru) is a Leg-type energy ball weapon that Vile obtains by defeating Armored Armadillo and Sting Chameleon in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. When equipped, Vile shoots a burst of blue fire that travels upward, not down. If it hits a ceiling, bursts of flame travel along the ceiling. If the player shoots this while Vile is in the air, the blue flame drops downward slightly, then arcs up to the ceiling.
