"Oink-wa--! You...You...I'm gonna...I oughtta... Arrghyaaa! WHY, YOU!!!!!"
―Ride Boarski, Mega Man X7

Ride Boarski, known as Hellride Inobusky (ヘルライド・イノブスキー Heruraido Inobusukī) in Japan, is a wild boar-based Reploid who is a member of the Red Alert syndicate and one of the Mavericks encountered in Mega Man X7.

He has an extremely touchy personality, well-befitting the actual nature of a wild boar. His temper is so out of control, he goes berserk at the drop of a hat, and if given the slightest insult, proceeds to run down the target of his aggression, complete with the added injury of tearing it to ribbons. With his fierce, rebellious attitude, there's absolutely no way of reasoning with him, giving the Maverick Hunters little other option than to do him in.


Boarski's has the following attacks at his disposal:

  • Lightning Fang: He will charge the player, attempting to grab and ram them into the electrified fence circling the arena. He is invincible in this state.
    • Sometimes, he will become enraged and speed around the arena in a wide arc, releasing a trail of Search Wheels in his wake. Once again he's invincible while doing this, so it is best to just dodge and focus on staying out of his way.
  • Search Wheel: When standing still he will throw three to five wheels in the players direction, but unlike the ones he releases while he's moving, these ones home in slightly.
  • Laser Rope: While stationary, Boarski will activate a trap in the center of the arena that will stretch out three electric beams that rotate counter-clockwise, covering a large portion of the area.
  • As an additional hazard, Runnerbombs will spawn on the three platforms outside of the arena and toss in grenades when a character is in range. X's fully charged buster shots or Zero's Z-Saber can pass through the barrier to destroy them.

The upside to Boarski's charge attacks is that they force him into cooldown periods, leaving him vulnerable to attack as he rests. Zero's Bakuenjin is possibly the most effective single attack to use against him, but unfortunately its energy cost is too high to be used repeatedly. Zero can work well in this battle as Boarski will take a descent amount of damage from just his saber strikes alone and his double jump is useful for avoiding many of Boarski's attacks. X is also very effective using his fully charged buster shots at long-range, and Circle Blaze when Boarski is close and resting.
