Maoh the Giant (マオー・ザ・ジャイアント Maō Za Jaianto) is the boss of the Opening Stage of Mega Man X3. It is a huge Mechaniloid that was part of Dr. Doppler's army when they attacked the headquarters of the Maverick Hunters. It attacks by punching with the large, spiked steel balls attached to its arms, crushing its enemies and building alike. Its only weak points are its head and arms. Unlike the Opening Stage boss in Mega Man X2, Gigantic Mechaniloid CF-0, touching Maoh's head or arms while they are in the background will not damage the player, and its attacks only inflict 1 unit of damage.
- A similar robot, a Reploid named Hell the Giant, appears in Mega Man Zero 4.
- Coincidentally, Maoh is said to be a Reploid in the book Rockman Memories, although this may be an error as most sources show that he is a Mechaniloid.
