Death Battle Fanon Wiki

I never cared about justice, and I don't recall ever calling myself a hero... I have always only fought for the people I believe in. I won't hesitate... If an enemy appears in front of me, I will destroy it!
~ Zero

Zero is the deuteragonist of the video game series, Mega Man X. He appeared in One Minute Melee where he fought Meta Knight and later appeared in the 84th episode where he fought against Noctis. He previously fought Metal Sonic in the 79th episode of DEATH BATTLE. He fought Strider Hiryu in DBX. He is Bass's younger brother.

Possible Opponents[]


A robot far more powerful than any other he had built, Wily designed Zero to eliminate his arch-enemy Mega Man, as well as his traitorous creation Bass. However, Zero was violent and refused to follow orders, so Wily sealed him away in a capsule, which was discovered years later by a band of Reploids. Zero destroyed them and attacked all that entered Wily’s fortress until Sigma battled him alone and, after a long-fought battle, defeated him.

After being looked at, Zero’s mind was clear and he was soon placed into Sigma’s Maverick Hunter unit, quickly rising to Class-A. He soon came across the B-class Hunter X, who he became almost like a mentor to. From the Day of Sigma onward, X and Zero were called upon to save the world multiple times.

After fighting through many adventures with X, Zero was put to a slumber that was to end 100 years later, where he'll have to be awoken to fight against Neo Arcadia.

Alternate Forms[]

Zero (Mega Man Zero)[]


  • The original consciousness of Zero in a new body
  • Was awakened 100 years after the events of Original Zero's ending in Mega Man X6 sometime after Command Mission
  • Height: Probably the same as Zero from the X Series
  • AI Age: Probably the same as Zero from the X Series
  • Weight: Probably the same as Zero from the X Series


  • Dashing: Zero can dash forward for probably around the distance of X's Dash Boots. Leaves red afterimages.
  • Wall Jumping: Same as Mega Man X, but it can be boosted by Dashing to have more momentum.


Note: All of Zero's weapons can charge up for a powerful strike

Zero can only equip 2 at a time, though re-equipping is probably instant


  • Originally an old model of a handheld gun used by the late Milan
    • With the Z Saber's help, the gun is capable of charging up
  • Mounted onto Zero when not in use


  • Like the one in the X Series, but it's shaped way differently, it looks more like a laser triangle on a metal stick, this could supposedly help out in sword struggles
  • Probably Zero's preferred weapon
  • Unlike the X Series, this Z Saber has been upgraded to be able to charge up
  • Unlike the X Series, this Z Saber doesn't seem to need an energy source (lasted 100 years)
    • Zero has an internal reactor inside, so Zero could be powering it himself
  • Can easily slice through 300 mm of reinforced steel in a single stroke
  • Can use the Triple Slash, a three-hit combo consisting of 1 horizontal slash, then 1 vertical, and then one more powerful vertical slash. Generally Zero's favorite combo
  • Can use the Rolling Slash, a rolling slash in mid-air
  • According to concept arts, Zero carries 2 Z Sabers but only seen to use one of them as a sword
  • It can transform into different weapons such as the Triple Rod, Shield Boomerang, Chain Rod, and Recoil Rod.

Triple Rod:

  • A lance that can be used in many directions.
  • Fully charged, Zero can spin it around like a battle staff
  • Its hilt can be modified to extend by 3 times, but this only happens on the ground

Shield Boomerang:

  • By rotating the Z Saber mounted on his forearm, Zero can hold it like a shield directly in front of him, blocking enemy projectiles, though it won't block powerful ones or melee
  • When thrown, the weapon becomes a shuriken looking disc that loops up before coming back to Zero

Chain Rod:

  • After the Triple Rod got destroyed, the remains were used to make the "looser" Chain Rod
  • Can be used as a grappling hook for the ceiling
  • Trusted straight forward, stabbing enemies to bring them back to Zero into a Z Saber strike. Can do the same with large boxes too
  • Could just impale instead

Recoil Rod:

  • 2 energy tonfas mounted on Zero's arms
  • When charged, the attack will knock the enemy away

Zero Knuckle

  • consists of a Z-shaped chip implanted into Zero's palms.
  • It allows him to rip off certain types of weapons (such as blasters, rocket launchers or axes) from enemy Mechaniloids or weak Reploids to use them for his own
    • Generally results in the enemy's death
    • Thus, Zero is almost never without a weapon
  • Charged Version results in a powerful punch
  • Cannot be equipped by elemental chip (due to the lack of them in Zero 4)

EX Skills[]

Note: These are skills that upgrade regular weapons to have special effects

Z Buster:

  • Laser Shot: Goes through enemies
  • Reflect Shot: Laser Shot, but goes through walls

  • Burning Shot: Explodes on contact, surrounding enemies can be burned on impact

Z Saber:

  • Tenshouzan(Split Heavens): A sword uppercut, can be used with Flame Chip to make it fire too
  • Flame Fang: Split Heavens with a chance to burn
  • Sengatotsu: A dashing slice, can be used with Thunder Chip to... do the obvious
  • Gale Attack: Same as Sengatotsu, but deals rapid damage in one attack, one of the most damaging attacks
  • Thunder Stab: If the sword touches a wall, two thunderbolts will start crawling on the wall. Can paralyze
  • Sharp Edge/Saber Smash: Stab down in the air, can use the Ice Chip/Thunder Chip to... you get the idea
  • Kougenjin: Fires a shockwave from the blade, goes through shields
  • Throw Blade: A shockwave from the blade with pointed fold, with Ice Chip, it gets bigger and travels longer
  • Ice Blade: Kougenjin but ice. Can go through enemies. Can freeze.
  • Sky Chaser: Saber Smash with no element, but makes rocks erupt on contact with the ground

Chain Rod:

  • Energy Chain: Drains life energy on contact

Shield Boomerang:

  • Filter Shield: Turns projectiles into E Crystals (that heal)
  • Shield Sweep: Shield is thrown in the ground and rolls forward before coming back, with Thunder Chip, it leaves a spark trail
  • Orbit Shield: Revolves around Zero for 4 revolutions (6 if ice is equipped) before doing the normal attack

Recoil Rod:

  • 1000 Slash: Rapid Combo Attack
  • Soul Launcher: Fires in the air when the rod is pointed upwards, which splits into four and comes crashing down, with Flame Chip, the shot sit there flaming for a little


Zero can equip only one at a time, though the equipping time is probably instant
