Ocean Stage (海中ステージ), known as Ocean Base Stage (海洋基地ステージ) in Mega Man Xtreme 2 and Subterranean Base in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X, is the stage from Launch Octopus in Mega Man X, its remake Maverick Hunter X, and Mega Man Xtreme 2.


Mega Man X / Maverick Hunter X

After Launch Octopus joined Sigma's uprising, he deployed his fleet of marine Mechaniloids to assault cities built on the ocean and blockade important shipping lanes; X goes to stop them. The stage starts out in the shallow water of a shoreline, before X is completely submerged in the ocean. There are multiple Anglerge and Utuboros sub-bosses, and also the combat submarine Cruiziler, whose destruction in particular opens up a secret portion of the stage.

Mega Man Xtreme 2

The stage reappears on Laguz Island in Mega Man Xtreme 2 as part of X Mission, where it is very similar but lacks several enemies and sub-boss encounters and also has a Light Capsule.

  • The enemies in Maverick Hunter X are the same in X Mode.
  • Amenhopper and Mega Tortoise do not appear in Mega Man Xtreme 2.

Maverick Hunter X (Vile Mode)

  • Life Up (X, MHX): Defeating Cruiziler opens up a route below, leading to a secret chamber with an Utuboros in it. Defeating it grants access to a Life Up.
  • Sub Tank (MHX): In Vile Mode, a Sub Tank can be found on the surface of the water just before the fight with the Utuboros above ground. It can be reached via a floating platform near Cruiziler, or with a Ride Armor dash jump.
  • Life Up (Xtreme 2): Use the whirlpool machines to jump out of the water and onto a rig, where the Life Up can be found.
  • Body Parts (Xtreme 2): In the same location as the Life Up in Mega Man X.



  • The stage has a short appearance in the opening animated cutscene of the disc versions of Mega Man X3, where X causes an Utuboros to collide into Launch Octopus, destroying both.
  • The stage originally had a jellyfish enemy that floats above X. This can be seen in the first game's trailer of Mega Man X Legacy Collection, and its data is present in the final release.[1]
