Three days later

Dr. Sid is in his new base along with the new generation reploids. He is in his personal room when suddenly, Sigma enters the room. Dr. Sid was overjoyed because he thought that X and Zero had defeated him.

Hehehe, I have finally get rid of those two Maverick hunters! Sigma said.

Sigma! It’s a pleasure to see you! I thought you loss to them! Sid said.

Because of your capabilities you have created a magnificent battle armor. Although, it was destroyed from the crash of Jakob’s basement, I manage to survive by using the prototype’s body of Axl. Hehehe! Sigma said.

My pleasure! Sid said.

So, May I hear the plans and the process you did in order for your plans to be successful. It will be my joy to hear how a genius like you had achieved your motives. Sigma said.

My only motive is to annihilate humans who lives on the sanctuary but when I realize about the parasite on the prototype, resurrecting you become one of my goals as well.

When I heard that the prototype is damaged by my comrade Lumine. I immediately responded to investigate it. As one of the reploids who proposes that copy chips should bear the old generation reploids DNA, I suspect that the maverick hunters won’t trust me so I have to gain it first. I acted as a scientist trying to exterminate the parasite that Lumine implanted to their comrade Axl. But in actuality, I am helping the parasite to overcome his body. I made old generation reploids turn into maverick to cause riot on the human settlements. Then, I provided the Sanctuary I built before and offered it to humans affected by the recent maverick attacks.  For this reason, the hunter would think I’m a good guy! Since the humans are part of the old generation. I have decided their fate is annihilation. How? by destroying and crashing the Jakob elevator to the sanctuary. Humans have no place to our new world and besides I have personal grudge on them! But of course I have set it up that the cause of the Jakob project’s destruction is the battle between your Copy and the hunters. Humans would absolutely judge the two hunters as Mavericks because of the hate filled on their heart. I can see that X is deeply shocked hearing himself labeled as maverick in front of the mob. This is how I wanted to get rid of these two. By letting the humans judged them as mavericks and provoking them to exterminate those two. Unfortunately those filthy hunter’s comrades foiled my plan. One even shot me. But of course, I won’t die easily. I suppose the only thing I should focus on is to resurrect you and it was a success.

Impressive Sid! Now if you excuse me, I have something to do. Sigma Said!

As you wish. Sid said.

Sigma goes out from Sid’s base and transforms into Axl, holding a small video recorder on his hands.

Not any longer the headquarters had acquired the recorded footage. Signas makes it worldwide news showing the recorded footage to humans and reploids. Humans get very furious that the real enemy was actually Sid whom they thought was a hero. When Dr. Sid sees this, he gets extremely angry. He realizes that it wasn’t Sigma he is talking to a moment ago but the Prototype Axl.

As X and Zero watches the recorded footage they realize that it was Axl’s doing. X and Zero rushed to the Main HQ room where Axl was. As they enter the room. They saw Axl standing along with Signas, Douglas and the navigators.

Axl looked to X and Zero.

I heard everything from Signas and everyone. In return for saving me, I think it’s my job to clean your reputations! And… uhm…

Signas taps Axl’s back. Don’t be shy.

Thank you for everything! Without the two of you, I might be gone! Axl said.

X and Zero smiles as they see their friend Axl in full recovery!


Because of the recorded footage. The survivors of the Jakob incident have justified that X and Zero were innocent and not a maverick. The real maverick was Dr. Craig Sid. Because of the Jakob incident, Humans gets more certain that they shouldn’t trust the reploids anymore. Humans demand the arrest of Sid. He was marked as a great threat to humans and reploids.

The battle of old generation reploids and the new generation reploids had begun.



Due to the parasite implanted by Lumine on Axl, his copy abilities improved. He is now able to transform into a more complicated form.


Thanks to everyone who followed and read my X9 story!

Some probably did not expect Sigma will be the last boss. Why did I bring him back especially Lumine told the hunters he won’t be back? Well, I won’t accept the fact that our bald-headed Sigma had a very anti climatic end on X8. Besides, Sigma is supposed to be alive until the end of Maverick wars…

About Dr. Craig Sid. I inspired his armor design on Lumine to give a hint that he is a villain. But then, it’s quite obvious and predictable but everyone didn’t think that his plans will be successful.  Usually all of the main antagonist of the X series had only one appearance on the game (except Sigma and Vile). I want to develop Sid’s character. I only give hints about his character background but if you will be asking what is his past/ background. Your question will be answered when I reveal my X10 story. Sid’s background is an important aspect of my X10 story. Not sure if I’ll do it though. Sid will appear again as the main antagonist of X10. Megaman X10 will be the epitome of the new generation reploids saga.

My reaction when I found out Axl recorded his conversation with Sid disguised as Sigma.…

I actually laughed a bit when I saw that it was Axl pretending to be Sigma. I didn't see that one coming that's for sure!

hello, i love this story !!!

wanted to ask if the x10 Might reveal the past of Axl, why has that scar, etc.

you could also make one of the bosses be a Tasmanian devil?

I would also like to know about the past sid

with great respect.
Nova-exe Featured By Owner Edited Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It really felt like a MMX story, with the twist of Sigma using Lumine this time, but the ending with Dr Sid felt a little bit forced or rather not that fun. I mean, he was the main antagonist of the game and he didn't even get his own boss battle. Sure you needed a way to clear X and Zero's name but that could easily had happened during the battle with Sigma. Like some kind of "in-game cutscene" were you see Lumine defeated, robot cameras flying around recording the situation and then Sid reveals his real plan.

Other thing that can be added would be either a secret mode or some Axl sequences, like stages were you control "Axl's conscience". In those Axl fights to get rid of the infection in his body. Or a story mode rush with Axl.

Other than that I think it's an amazing work!

About Sid, that was intended actually. Sid will be the final boss of my X10 story though. :)

Looks like an excellent title!

Why doesn't Capcom hire you for this game, then again, they might throw you back to the curb (BUT THAT REALLY LOOKS LIKE THE KIND OF THE STORY & REPLAY VALUE THAT IT IS WORTH PLAYING)...!

Will there -- oh wait -- I think I saw X9's Armor Adaptions, if I barely recall. Okay, since this is before Command Mission, & X10, when will Command Mission set in after the events of, then followed by the Zero series...?

This is amazing! You really have talent, this just proves what the potential of this serie is and how Capcom has ruined it. Honestly you are a hero to all Megaman X fans this is really good id say the story you wrote is better than any other Megaman Story that Capcom has written. Thank You ! :)

So, I read through this whole thing after taking a look at the Boss video and Teaser. Very well done I have to say. I'd definitely play it. Only unfortunate thing about this is that Mark Gatha wouldn't be able to voice X as he'd done in X8, Command Mission and Maverick Hunter X. It took them a while but they eventually found the perfect cast.

One thing I was hoping for though, was that you'd have done a bit more with how the humans felt after all this Maverick business. Their being duped into believing X and Zero were responsible for the Jakob Space Elevator collapse was great, but then that resultant anger seems to drop off into the background until the epilogue where Axl manages to clear their names. Then again, I suppose that story element will be a major part of X10... implying you intend to go forward with that xD

It'd no doubt go into the Elf Wars, but then you'd probably have to end up having to explain Zero's body-in-stasis being used for Omega's creation, among other things.

I really wish Inafune were allowed to continue with the Maverick Hunter X project. We'd have gotten the streamlined storyline he was hoping to bring about.

Either way, good job! Hoping to see more from you!

One of the nice things about Sigma is that him being 'alive' is a very broad term because he is a virus. Him being 'dead' could be the exact same as him being 'dormant.' In many ways, Sigma has already 'died' many times.

AmbertheLunarWolf Featured By Owner May 8, 2014
I just finished reading this and this would have been an awesome game to play.  Too bad capcom didn't make another.  This story line actually could've made a great answer to the ending of X8.  Of course, Axl being able to turn into Sigma will be entertaining to expand on.  What pranks (if any) will he pull on poor X and Zero? lol   I hope you do decide to make an X10 story, I'd love to see your version of what happens between the X games and the Elf Wars (and maybe what happens after the Elf Wars if you go that far?).

I really do like how you tried filling in the gaps CAPCOM kept leaving, especially in the case of Axl's transformation capabilities. This was a very good read, I enjoyed it~! Bravo for your work!! :clap:

:D Heh heh, good ol' Axl; I knew he'd be all right. That's clever tricking Sid like that to help X and Zero.
:clap: It was a great story, pal, one worthy of being an actual game. I look forward to your X10 story should you decided to post it.

I knew it! I knew that Axl would be able to transform into more difficult Mavericks! Now let Axl transform into Maverick bosses like Grey/Ashe in MMZXA!

Now that Axl can change into Sigma, I can only imagine the kind of pranks he'll pull on X and Zero.

Aside from that, this was an awesome read. I enjoyed the story and I hope to see more from you.

so Axl's ok, and Sigma can change into Axl at will? heavy
RollZero Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
This was amazing work really! =D I love the plot detail and your artwork throughout this whole the arc. I could really see this as an actual part of the canon story. It's really well thought out and I agree with you Sigma's death in X8 was terrible, I find it impossible to believe he really met his end there as well, considering how many times we've seen him come back from the dead. But the way you brought him back was very believable, and not as 'random' as Gate's resurrection of Sigma in X6 in my opinion.
Being a huge fan of the X series, it's actually my favorite series of Megaman in terms of plot and storyline, I can say without a doubt I would totally buy an X game with this plot, well done indeed ^^
RSBCS Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
HAHA! So Epic!!!! You really wrapped up the story in a neat little bow. That was super rad.

I loved when you had Axl A-Trans into Sigma and fool Sid. That was so perfect. And now, with his A-Trans ability improved, Axl will be able to help the hunters in Command Mission, and beyond.

i gotta admit though, I have some critique to give to. First off, it was kinda hard to really imagine the beginning of the story because you didn't use dialogue. As a writer, you need to bring your characters to life through their words as well as their actions. But you definitely made up for it towards the end.

I could totally imagine this becoming a video game. It has such a complex plot and clever plot twists, just like the X series. And there are new challenges X, Zero, and Axl undergo that really test their mettle as Maverick Hunters. All in all, I am officially in awe. I can't wait to read your next installment. Great job UMX.

*Megaman X5 title sequence playing as the end credits roll* So EPIC!!!!!!!
Jspeed384 Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow... No really, wow. This was, such a fun read, I can't even explain. The story was good, I thought the plot proceeded well enough for the story, and as a sequel, and following the whole story to it's end, with a very satisfying and heartwarming end I might add, it was great to imagine all the sequences and play them out as if this were actually a videogame. And the suspense for the next part was pretty grand too.

Being a Mega Man fan, especially an X fan no doubt, I found this quite enjoyable, just like all your other artwork and projects that I've observed overtime. Now, you may just be able to add stories to that list.

To be honest, and just critiquing here, I will say I did have a bit of a time navigating through the series of some, grammatical errors. Though I did successfully make it through, I did have to backtrack at certain points to make sure I understood the plot of things and such. But, I guess that's what X games are famous for, right? Hehe. A-Anyway.

Great job on a successful story concept run. The idea was brilliant, and I can't wait to see what you have, for X10's concept. I'm sure it'll be as great as this which you've shared with us.

ultimatemaverickx Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yup! It's because Sigma went off Axl's body in a virus form. The Maverick virus was also removed from Axl's system.

"Due to the parasite implanted by Lumine on Axl, his copy abilities improved. He is now able to transform into a more complicated form."

So that's how he can take on the full forms of reploids in "Command Mission."

Will you be making boss designs?
