Gaaaaaaate! Gah, I hated this guy! His boss fight was fundamentally unfair and frustrating. My hat's off to anybody who enjoyed the fight with Gate, aside from that glorious feeling of triumph when you win and all that's left are the significantly easier Sigma battles... I'm sure I'd share the enjoyment of his character if it weren't surrounded in... well... Mega Man X6. I enjoy a fair challenge, not an unfair one, so again, my hat's off to the people who liked X6 for being unbearably difficult by incomplete design.
*Ahem* Somehow, this take on him seems... younger? I dunno. Perhaps his proportions are slightly more childish, and he looks a hair shorter. It's mostly with his battle form that it really sticks out. Maybe it's just because of the giant shoulder pads and cape, and I'm insane, or something along those lines. And... is his left shoulder differently-shaped than his right in his battle form? Or is that just the perspective?
