MMX7 - Red Art.png Red
The leader of Red Alert. Ignoring due process and official approval, Red has taken it upon himself to destroy Mavericks along with his ragtag band of disreputable bounty hunters.
What is Red Alert? Red Alert is an unofficial vigilante organization that searches out and destroys Mavericks without government approval, but since the Maverick Hunters' numbers have dwindled, many Reploids see Red Alert as a hope for security and stability.

Behind the Scenes

Developer Commentary

"I had the Grim Reaper in mind when I designed Red. I gave him bags under his eyes and a sharp scythe to give him an evil look. The white lines I put in here and there are supposed to look like bones, and although it may not be the most original idea, I made the center of his torso look like a face, with the pointed shoulder pieces being sharp horns." - (Tatsuya Yoshikawa)[1]
"Initially, the order was to make him resemble the Grim Reaper, but it didn't work due to a past Sigma design.[note 1] So we instead designed him with the theme of the Grim Reaper's scythe, the sharp silhouette of a knife, and scars." - (Concept Art Room)[2]


  1. This is likely referring to Phantom Sigma from Mega Man X4, who already had a heavy Grim Reaper aesthetic.
