"Hahahah! Destroy, destroy, destroy! Hahahah! Look at me, look at me! I'm king of the mountain!"
―Vanishing Gungaroo, Mega Man X7

Vanishing Gungaroo, also known as Vanishing Gungaroon (バニシング・ガンガルン Banishingu Gangarun) in Japan, is a kangaroo-based Reploid from Mega Man X7 and member of the Red Alert Maverick hunting organization. As can be inferred from X, Zero, and Axl's interactions with the Kangaroo Maverick, Gungaroo's personality is that of a manchild, although he takes offense at his being considered a child.

Strategy

He begins the boss battle in his signature Ride Armor, and the player must confront him in a Ride Armor battle. Other than its basic attacks of charging punches and jumps, Gungaroo's Ride Armor can create four large close ranged shields to block oncoming attacks. These shields very slowly advance in the player's direction, and are easily avoided. Once Gungaroo's Ride Armor is destroyed, the player can pummel him a little bit more before he destroys theirs. However, as most Ride Armor attacks can miss Gungaroo due to his height, attempting to crush him with a jumping press can be effective.

Gungaroo can perform the following attacks:

  • Triangle Kick: An attack that he tends to use most often, it is a powerful kick that he performs by bouncing himself off the barrier of the arena to send him flying directly at the player. This attack can be very damaging and Gungaroo is invincible while performing the maneuver, so be ready to get clear once he announces it.
  • One-Two-Three & Vanishing Upper: As the name implies, it is a three hit combo normally followed by a powerful uppercut. The attack can cause descent damage if caught in it and Gungaroo may not verbally announce it.
  • Back Kick: Gungaroo turns away from the player and flicks his tail, unleashing a long ranged energy wave that can also block attacks. Easily avoided by side stepping.
  • Sonic Shield: Gained when he reaches half health, this is a smaller version of his Ride Armor's shield attack.
  • Gungaroo may occasionally perform a simple dashing punch.

Gungaroo can be a tricky opponent as he is very quick and constantly dodging. Using his own strategy against him works well; perform hit and run attacks, and keep a good amount of space between him and the character if possible to avoid surprise close ranged attacks. His weaknesses, Wind Cutter and Souenbu, are effective if available. If X is an available character, his fully charged Buster shots can inflict a decent amount of damage, making short work of Gungaroo and his Ride Armor.
