The Overdrive Invoke System (オーバードライブ・インヴォーク・システム), O.I.S. for short, is a feature introduced in its only appearance in Mega Man ZX.


The Overdrive Invoke System is a special ability that all known Biometals except Model X and A possess. When activated, the user emits a colored, resonating aura not unlike those seen in Elpizo and Omega. During this state, the user's Biometal is literally in overdrive, pushing the Biometal's powers to their fullest for a limited time to increase their powers until they're burned out and is typically used as a last resort.


O.I.S. is activated during gameplay by pressing the X button, causing the character to produce an aura around them. During this time, certain attacks and attributes are enhanced to dramatically boost performance. The drawback however is constant Biometal Gauge energy use, and certain attacks can drain it even faster. At any time, the Overdrive can be turned off to preserve energy, so it is wise to use it in short bursts if necessary.

  • Model W - No elemental properties, but enhances the strength, range and speed of the user's attacks. Only demonstrated by Serpent. Produces a violet aura.
