This is our second shot in the fantasy series. In the previous game, X4, we went for a [[Magma Dragoon|dragon motif]], but as a rule for the X series bosses, fantasy types are not existent creatures, so if it's hard to figure out, it becomes unavailable. Well, I broke that rule again this time. (grin)

"I've already been infected by the Virus... I'm destined to be retired by you once I become a Maverick, so go ahead, take me down..."
―The Skiver, Mega Man X5

The Skiver, known as Spiral Pegacion[2] (スパイラル・ペガシオン Supairaru Pegashion) in Japan, also known as Spiral Pegasus,[2] is a Pegasus-themed Reploid from Mega Man X5. He was a young director of the Repliforce air brigade, who survived the Repliforce Incident that occurred during the events of Mega Man X4. He looked up to Colonel and General and knows Iris. Skiver then began overseeing an Air Force base near to the west coast of Norway, known as the Reploid Air Force.

Skiver held an Orbiter Wing needed for the Shuttle Operation to destroy the Eurasia colony. However, because of being in the early stages of the viral infection and unresolved issues with the Maverick Hunters, he refuses to cooperate and orders to be taken down in an duel without hard feelings:

  • If X was used, he always wanted to meet with him, implying he wanted to discuss about the General.
  • If Zero was used, he questions as to why he killed the Colonel.

If he was fully infected, he yells out for killing out of revenge: General for X and Colonel and Iris for Zero.

Strategy

He flies about and uses his Wing Spiral attack, but can be trapped by Dark Hold, so use this to your advantage. Zero is recommended for this battle, as he can still perform his other skills (that do not require Weapon Energy) when using Dark Hold, unlike X, who is only limited to buster shots when the weapon is in effect.

Data

Nickname: Air Force Prince (エアフォースプリンス Ea Fōsu Purinsu)

Powers and Abilities

  • Dash Tackle: (ダッシュ体当たり) The Skiver flies around at high speed to tackle the target.
  • Hurricane: (疾風) The Skiver will dash and create an after-image with W-Shredder.

  • Shoryuken: (昇龍拳) The Skiver moves to the bottom of the plane and rises with an uppercut.

Dialogues

When Playing as X

The Skiver: X! I've wanted to meet you... But considering the situation, we don't have time for small talk. Soon, the Reploid Air Force will be destroyed. You may be our only hope... But, you'll have to convince me first... Through battle...

The Skiver: I didn't want to meet you in a situation like this... Not only this airport, but I, too, will be infected by the virus, and all will turn into Mavericks... Therefore, my destiny lies in your hands... Before I've totally lost my mind, please fight me... and make me accept my destiny...

The Skiver: Squawk! Who... Are... You?

X: Skiver... You have also been...

The Skiver: You have killed the General... I'll kill you to avenge his death!

When Playing as Zero

The Skiver: I've wanted to see you, Zero... I wanted to ask you something... My thoughts always come back to the Colonel. I wanted to ask you if the battle between you two was necessary. I'm not accusing you, I just want to know, that's all. I've already been infected by the Virus... I'm destined to be retired by you once I become a Maverick, so go ahead, take me down... I want to fight you for the Colonel... That's what the Colonel would want.

Zero: I understand... But I'll fight you only because this is my mission. Now... let's do it!

The Skiver: Zero! I didn't want to see you in a situation such as this... Soon the Virus will take full control of me... When that happens, you'll have to retire me. So... Fight me now, Maverick Hunter... I want to fight you for the Colonel... And that's what the Colonel would want.

Zero: I understand... But I'll fight you only because it is my mission... Here I come!

The Skiver: Iris, who is this guy? Please... ...tell me, Iris. Who is this guy?

Zero: Skiver... You've become one of the Mavericks too...? Iris is gone... I'm...

The Skiver: KILL YOU. I'LL KILL YOU!! I WON'T ALLOW YOU TO ESCAPE!

The Skiver, named Spiral Pegasus in the comic, appears in the crossover event Worlds Unite. He is one of the many Mavericks recreated by Sigma-1 using his newfound powers before being dispatched to various worlds via Genesis Portals to conquer in Sigma's name. He and Toxic Seahorse go to the world of Breath of Fire III to set an Unity Engine, but they are destroyed by the heroes in that world.
