"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 (スパイラルペガシオン Supairaru Pegashion, Spiral Pegacion in Japan) is a Repliforce Reploid left over from Mega Man X4, who soon succumbed to the Sigma Virus. He was apparently friends with Colonel as he questions Zero, if used at the time, as to why he killed him. Skiver guards the Orbiter Wing for the Shuttle, and he flies about and throws Wing Spiral. But he freezes in Dark Hold, so use this to your advantage. It's recommended that you use Zero for this battle, as Zero can still perform his other skills (that do not require WE) when using Dark Hold, unlike X, who is only limited to buster shots when the weapon is in effect.

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...

When Playing as X (without needing the Orbiter Wing)

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...

When Playing as X (if Eurasia crashed)

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!

When Playing as Zero (without needing the Orbiter Wing)

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!

When Playing as Zero (if Eurasia crashed)

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!
