"Fires cutters that grow as they fly and can pierce enemies."
―In-game text, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

Parasite Sword (パラサイトソード Parasaito Sōdo) is a Shoulder-type cutter weapon that Vile obtains by defeating Boomerang Kuwanger and Chill Penguin in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. When equipped, Vile fires a huge lilac purple cutter that only gets bigger the further it goes. The player can angle Parasite Sword's trajectory by pressing UP and DOWN on the control pad while firing. Does only mild damage.

Parasite Sword is Sting Chameleon's weakness, and Mega Man X takes a considerable amount of damage from it as well. This Cutter weapon is also capable of cutting off Launch Octopus's tentacles and Flame Mammoth's trunk.
