Trivia

  • The X-Kai figure contains a fictional backstory which states that it was originally a prototype developed by Dr. Wily using the stolen blueprints for the DRN-001 Mega Man that was later discarded in favor of the DWN-∞. During the formation of the X-Hunters, this lost prototype would be discovered by an unknown party and completed. The unit was named "X-kai-" after the Maverick Hunter X, owing mostly to his superior specs and nearly-identical design (though this is not explicitly stated). X-Kai would then become the designated leader of the X-Hunters.[5]
    • It is worth noting that the concept behind X-Kai was that in the Mega Man X Official Complete Works, the X-Hunters were originally four members, but the fourth character was cut from the game due to ROM capacity. Keisuke Mizumo stated that X-Kai was created because he was "amazed that Capcom didn't make a villain that looked exactly like Mega Man X."
      • Oddly enough, there was already a Mega Man X lookalike villain, called "X" (pronounced "iX").
