“X”は、よりふくざつな 人間的思考能力をもつ、新しいタイプのロボットである。しかしこの能力は、非常に 危険なものでもある。
もし“X”が、「ロボットは 人間をきずつけてはいけない」というロボット工学の原則を 自らの意志でやぶったならば、おそらく 何者も 彼をとめることはできず、結果は 恐しいものとなるだろう。

30年もあれば、彼の安全性をたしかめることは 可能である。しかし、私の命もそうながくはなく、私の研究をたくせる者もいない。
それゆえ 私は、このカプセルに 彼を 封印する。このカプセルは、彼の安全性をたしかめるまで、彼の内部こうぞうを 検査してくれるものである。そのときまで、どうかカプセルをあけないでもらいたい。

“X”は 無限の可能性と共に、無限の危険性をもはらんでいる。私はただ、さいりょうの結果をのぞむのみである。

Highway

(X teleports to the start of the Central Highway and fights through some of Sigma's Mavericks. At the end of the area, Vile jumps out of a large ship in a Ride Armor and battles X. X is unable to gain any advantage, and is defeated.)

Vile: You worthless piece of scrap metal, did you think you could defeat me?[1]

(A Buster is heard charging up, and suddenly an energy shot appears from off the screen, destroying one of the arms of Vile's Ride Armor. Zero dashes into view, firing his Buster again but narrowly missing Vile as he escapes.)

X: I guess I'm not powerful enough to defeat him...[2]

Zero: X, you shouldn't expect to defeat him, he is designed to be a war machine. Remember, you have not reached full power yet. If you use all the abilities you were designed with, you should become stronger... You may even become as powerful as I am. I'll scout ahead and collect as much information on Sigma's fortress as I can. I'll meet up with you when you get there. See you later! X, I know you can do it!

(Zero and X both teleport out.)


ヴァヴァ「バカめ!おれにかてるとでもおもったか エックス! いのちは ひとつしかないんだ、だいじにつかうべきだったな・・ハハハハ!」

●ゼロ乱入、ヴァヴァを退ける
エックス「く、くそう!おれのちからでは、やつらをたおすことはできないのか・・・」

ゼロ「エックス、いまのおまえでは、やつら、シグマをたおすことはできないだろう。しかしおまえには、たたかいによって、のうりょくをたかめるちからがある! そのちからで おまえはもっとつよくなれるはずだ! いまのおれよりもずっと・・・おれはそれにかけるぜ! おれはさきにいって シグマのアジトをさぐる。おまえは かくちのハンターをぶっつぶしてくれ。またあとであおう・・・ エックス・・・ しぬなよ・・・・・」


The Light Capsules

(As X fights through Chill Penguin's stage, he comes across a strange capsule. A hologram of Dr. Light appears as he approaches.)

Dr. Light: So you've come... X, I gave you the ability to choose your own path in life, and I hoped the world would allow you to choose a peaceful one. But now it seems that you are destined to fight. Because I thought the world might need a new champion, I have hidden capsules like this one. If you find and use them you will be able to increase your powers beyond anything the world has ever known. Step into this capsule and receive an acceleration system to boost your speed. Good Luck, X!

(The hologram disappears, and X steps inside the capsule and receives the Foot Parts.)


(X fights through Storm Eagle's stage, and finds another capsule. The same hologram appears.)

Dr. Light: This capsule contains an enhancement for your helmet which will allow you to break up some ceilings with a headbutt.

(The hologram disappears, and X steps inside the capsule and receives the Head Parts.)


(X fights through Flame Mammoth's stage, and finds another capsule. The same hologram appears.)

Dr. Light: This capsule contains a part which will increase the capabilities of your X-Buster. You can use it to fire all types of weapons.[3]

(The hologram disappears, and X steps inside the capsule and receives the Arm Parts.)


(X fights through Sting Chameleon's stage, and finds another capsule. The same hologram appears.)

Dr. Light: This capsule contains a new type of body armor. It will reduce damage to your systems by fifty percent.

(The hologram disappears, and X steps inside the capsule and receives the Body Parts.)


(If X completes special requirements while fighting through Armored Armadillo's stage, he will find another capsule.)

Dr. Light: I give you a special present. Now, enter the capsule, please![4]

(The hologram disappears, and X steps inside the capsule and receives the Hadoken upgrade.)


●フットパーツ
ライト博士「エックスよ、やはりきてしまったか・・・ できれば おまえには、へいわなひびを おくってほしかったのじゃが・・・ これも、うんめい なのかのう・・・ カプセルにはいるのじゃ、エックス。そうすれば、おまえはダッシュが できるようになり、いどうのうりょくが おおはばにアップするはずじゃ。このようなカプセルがまだかくちに かくされておる。つよくなりたいのなら カプセルをさがしだすのじゃ! つらいことも おおかろうが、がんばるのじゃぞ・・エックスよ・・・」

●ヘッドパーツ
ライト博士「ここでは、ヘルメットをパワーアップさせるパーツをあたえよう。ヘッドアタックで、とくべつなてんじょうをこわして すすんでいくことができるじゃろう。」

●アームパーツ
ライト博士「ここでは、エックスバスターをパワーアップさせるパーツをさずけよう。あらゆるショットを チャージさせることで、よりきょうりょくなこうげきが くりだせるじゃろう。」

●ボディパーツ
ライト博士「ここでは、ボディをパワーアップさせるパーツをあたえよう。うけたダメージを、はんげんしてくれることじゃろう。」

●波動拳のカプセル
ライト博士「ふふふ、どうじゃエックス!きたえぬかれた、このからだは!! うしろにみゆる だいばくふで、きたえにきたえぬいたのじゃ!! ばくふとゆうても、「えどばくふ」のことではないぞ!! そんなことは どーでもよい!エックス! カプセルにはいるのじゃ!! わしが しゅぎょうのすえ えとくした わざを、おまえにさずけよう! ただし うちかたは、じぶんでみつけるのじゃ!! エックスよ、しゅぎょうじゃ! しゅぎょう あるのみじゃ!!」


Splitting up

(X and Zero meet in front of Sigma's fortress.)

Zero: Finally! We've found Sigma's fortress! Let's go in and put an end to his war against the humans!

(They both enter the fortress.)

Zero: Let's split up. I'll go in first and then you can slip in while I keep the main defense force busy!

(Zero dashes ahead.)


●ボス8体を撃破後
ゼロ「エックス、ついにシグマのアジトをみつけたぜ!! とてつもなくおおきなようさいだ! ひとすじなわでは いかないだろうが、オレたちのパワーでいっきにけっちゃくをつけてやろうぜ!!」

●シグマ・ステージ1開始直後
ゼロ「てきのこうげきをぶんさんさせるために、ふたてにわかれてこうどうするぞ エックス! オレはさきにいく!おまえも あとからきてくれ!!」


Zero's sacrifice

(On a higher stage of Sigma's fortress, X and Zero meet up again. Vile suddenly drops from the ceiling.)

Zero: Stay back X, I'll take him on!

(Vile flees, and Zero dashes after him. X follows and hears several scuffling noises. X goes through the next door to see Zero in an electric cage with Vile in another Ride Armor.)

Vile: X, do what I tell you or he's history!

Zero: Don't listen to him X! Go ahead and blast him!!

Vile: Dream on Zero! X knows he can't defeat me! My armored carrier is more than a match for his ancient weapons!

(X battles Vile again, but is defeated despite using all of his powerups. Vile laughs and tosses X to the side, trapping him in an energy field. Zero suddenly breaks out of the cage and grabs onto Vile's Ride Armor.)

Zero: Maybe......but I'm not through yet!

(Zero charges up to the point of self-destruction and the Ride Armor starts to explode. There is a huge flash of light that throws Zero to the other side of the room. When the light fades away, the Ride Armor is destroyed, but Vile is unscathed.)

Vile: What a worthless gesture! I can't be defeated so easily! So X, it's just you and me now!

(X absorbs the power of the energy field he had been trapped in, and gets to his feet.)

Vile: What the...!? Where did that energy come from?? It really doesn't matter how much energy you absorb X, you are still far too weak! Prepare to be terminated!

(X battles Vile again and defeats him. Vile explodes and X dashes across the room to Zero's side.)

If X received the Arm Parts

Zero: X, I've taken too much damage..... Auto repair systems can't handle it... My power is fading fast... Your power is greater than I thought. Maybe you can destroy Sigma.

(Zero goes limp and he dies. X gets to his feet and continues on.)

If X did not receive the Arm Parts

Zero: You are more powerful than you were before, but Sigma is much more than he appears to be. You're going to need an edge. Take my arm cannon and your attack power should increase. Good Luck, X!

(Zero goes limp and he dies. X gets to his feet and continues on.)


●シグマ要塞でヴァヴァと対面
ゼロ「エックス、さがっていろ!こいつは オレがたおす!!」

●先に進んだらゼロを捕らえたヴァヴァ
ヴァヴァ「フフフ・・・こいつを たすけたいか、エックス! たすけたいのなら、オレのめいれいに したがえ! そうすれば いのちだけはたすけてやる・・・」

ゼロ「エックス、オレにかまわず こいつを やってしまえ!!」

ヴァヴァ「ずいぶん いせいがいいなゼロ! おまえがそのきなら、それもいいだろう・・・ エックス、すこしはつよくなったつもりだろうが、オレのライドアーマーは おおはばにパワーアップしている!! オレにはむかうとは、みのほどしらずめ! いくぞ!!」

●ライドアーマーを倒すものの、エックスがヴァヴァに束縛される
ゼロ「おまえのあいては、エックスではなく このオレだっ!!!」

●ゼロが自爆し、ライドアーマーを破壊する
ヴァヴァ「バカなやつめ、そんなことでこのおれが たおせるとでもおもったのか!? さあエックス、つぎはおまえのばんだ! かくごはいいか!?」

●束縛されたエックスが自力で解放
ヴァヴァ「な、なにいー!! おまえに、そんなちからが のこっていたとは! フッ、まあよい! いぬじにしたゼロに、すぐにあわせてやるぜ!! エックス、かくごしろっ!!!」

●ヴァヴァ撃破後、アームパーツを持っている場合
ゼロ「エックス、むねんだが オレはここまでだ・・・ おまえのちからは、すでにオレをこえている・・・ いまのおまえなら・・・シグマ・・を・・・たおせるかも・・し・・れ・・・ ・・・・・・ ・・・・・・」

●アームパーツがない場合
ゼロ「ずいぶんつよくなったな、エックス・・・ だが、シグマは がいけんからは はかりしれない パワーをもっている・・・ オレはもう、たたかえん・・・ ただひとつ、のこされたのぞみは エックス、おまえだけだ・・・ オレのアームパーツをもっていけ・・・バスターの こうげきりょくがかくだんにアップするはずだ・・・ もっとも、おまえが つかいこなせたらのはなしだがな・・・ じゃあな・・・ エックス・・・ たのんだぞ・・・・・」


Sigma Stage 4

(X fights through the rest of the fortress and finds Sigma in a tower with a large wolf Mechaniloid.)

Sigma: Welcome! I see you managed to get here by yourself. Very impressive! I could destroy you, but I would not rob my pet of that pleasure. He knows how to deal with betrayers. Should you live, I will be waiting for you. Don't disappoint me X!

(Sigma orders Velguarder to destroy X, but X defeats it. Velguarder explodes as Sigma reappears.)

Sigma: Excellent job, X! I see why Zero counted on you. You are almost as good a hunter as I was. But, the time of your destruction has arrived! You shall regret ever having defied me!

(Sigma throws his cloak off and draws his saber. X defeats him, and Sigma appears to explode. After the light fades, Sigma's head is levitated into a giant wolf-like body. X eventually defeats this form as well.)

Sigma: No!!! It's not possible! I'm a Reploid! I can't be destroyed by you! Why, X?! Why have you done this to us?! Without the humans, my Reploid brothers could have ushered in a new age.....

(Wolf Sigma explodes just as X teleports out of the room.)


シグマ「フフフ・・・すばらしいよ、エックス。ひとりでここまでたどりつくとは。じつにすばらしい。さてと、すぐにでもわたしとおてあわせ ねがいたいのだが、あいにく わたしのペットが それをゆるしてくれなくてね。なにしろ、うらぎりもののしまつは、すべてこれに まかせているのでね・・・ それでは エックス、きみと たたかえることを、こころよりねがっているよ。ハハハハハ・・・」

●ベルガーダー撃破後
シグマ「みごとだ、エックス。それでこそ、あのゼロがみこんだおとこだ。ではのぞみどおり、わたしがあいてをしてやろう。このわたしにたてついたことを、あのよでこうかいするがよい!」

●ウルフシグマ撃破後
シグマ「バ、バカな・・・ おまえごときに、このわたしがやられるとは・・・ なぜだ・・・ なぜおまえは、わたしにはむかった・・・ われら、レプリロイドのじだいが・・・ はじまろうと・・・ いう・・の・・に・・・・・」


Epilogue

(X stands on a cliff by the sea, watching Sigma's fortress explode and crumble into the sea. A narration appears.)

The war has ended for now and peace has been restored. But those who sacrificed themselves for the victory will never return.

Exhausted, X gazes at the destruction he helped cause and wonders why he chose to fight. Was there another way?

Standing on the cliff, the answers seem to escape him. He only knows that he'll fight the Mavericks again before he finds his answer.

How long will he keep on fighting? How long will his pain last? Maybe only the X-Buster on his hand knows for sure.....


●エピローグ

たたかいは おわった。
あしたに なれば、
ふたたび へいわな あさが
おとずれる ことだろう。
しかし、きずつき たおれ、
よるのやみへと きえていった
ものたちが、そのあさを
むかえることは けっしてない。


ひとり たちつくす
エックスの すがたは、
ばくはつのひかりに てらされて、
いまにも きえてしまいそうにみえた。


なぜ、たたかわなくては
ならないのか。
だれもエックスに、そのことを
おしえては くれない。
やすむまもなく、どこかで
イレギュラーたちが はっせいし、
ふたたびかれは たたかいのうずへと
まきこまれて いくのだろう・・・


やさしさを すてきれぬ
イレギュラーハンター・エックス。
かれのたたかいは、
どこまで つづくので あろうか。
かれのくるしみは、
いつまで つづくので あろうか。
かれの うでに
つめたく ひかる、
エックスバスターの
かがやきとともに・・・



Sigma's message

(After the staff roll, Sigma appears on a computer screen.)

Sigma: You have won a temporary victory,X! What you destroyed was only a temporary body -- my spirit remains intact. In time I will find other bodies strong enough to do my bidding and I will return. I shall see you soon, X. Very soon...


●スタッフロールの後
シグマ「おまえがたおしたものは、わたし じしんではない。バラバラになったキカイは、わたしの ぶんしんのようなもの。わたしはふたたび、じったいとなってよみがえる・・・ エックスよ、また あえるひをたのしみに しているぞ。ハハハハハ・・・」


Notes

  1. The iOS version added the following line: "What a waste. All this just to throw your life away… But who am I to judge? Hahahahaha!"
  2. X says "Damn" in the beginning of this line in the Mega Man X Collection version.
  3. The iOS version adds the following in the end: "(...), and even perform powerful charged versions of them.".
  4. The text is longer in the Japanese version, being translated in the iOS version: "Well, what do you think, X? Now I’ve got the body of a warrior, too — just like you! See those waterfalls way off in the distance? I sat under their cold torrents for days on end meditating and training. But that’s enough out of this old man. I hereby give you a special present. Now, enter the capsule, please! I’m about to teach you a secret technique I developed through all that training! Press ↓→ + Fire when you have all of your health. It’s called a “Hadouken”. I was actually going to call it a “Hachoo-ken” in honor of the terrible cold I caught while I was training, but... In any case, give it a try, but you may need to do some training of your own first to get it down pat. Good luck, X!".
    The "Hachoo-ken" joke is different in the Japanese version, being changed due to only making sense in Japanese: Dr. Right tells X that he trained on the "dai bakufu", which can mean a big waterfall or the Edo shogunate. Noticing the ambiguity, he adds that "by bakufu, I don't mean the Edo bakufu!".
