"Shoot jets of flame from your leg. Strong, but not energy efficient."
―In-game text, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

Wild Horse Kick (ワイルドホースキック Wairudo Hōsu Kikku) is a Leg-type flamethrower weapon that Vile obtains by defeating Flame Mammoth in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. When equipped, Vile shoots a stream of fire from his knee. Unlike X's Fire Wave, this weapon lasts for a preset amount of time, during which the player cannot move or perform other actions. Wild Horse Kick drains Weapon Energy for a few seconds as it executes. Because this weapon is fire-based, using Wild Horse Kick underwater will render it completely useless.

Wild Horse Kick is Chill Penguin|Chill Penguin's weakness.

Defeating Flame Mammoth will not only reward Vile with Wild Horse Kick, but also with Triple 7 and Fire Murrain.

  • Wild Horse Kick may refer to how the flame bursts from Vile's leg like the fearsome kick of a horse.
