Mega Man X, also known as Rockman X in Japan and often just called “X” is the main protagonist of the Mega Man X games and usually fights against Sigma and his Mavericks. 

Similar to Mega Man he uses an X-Buster to shoot projectiles but can equip the weapons of Mavericks he defeated. 

There are eight main series Mega Man X games which were released between 1993 (Mega Man X on the SNES) and 2004 (Mega Man X8 for Playstation 2 and PC). There is also the spinoff Mega Man X Command Mission (2004). 

Mega Man X returned as an unplayable protagonist in the Mega Man Zero and Mega Man ZX games and is also a playable character in multiple crossover games like Project X Zone 1&2, Rockman Tennis and Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite.
