"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 Mega Man 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'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 refers to how the flame bursts from Vile's leg like the fearsome kick of a horse.
