Avalanche Yeti debuts in Mega Man X8 as one of the eight Mavericks on the Stage Select screen. He is a new generation Reploid who rebels by tampering with an ecological control system in the Antarctic, serving as the boss of the Central White stage. He attacks with icy punches and tackles from the deep snow filling his arena. Defeating Avalanche Yeti grants Drift Diamond to X, Hyouryuushou to Zero, and Ice Gattling to Axl. His weakness is the Thunder Dancer, Raikousen, or Plasma Gun from Gigabolt Man-O-War, which electrocutes and knocks him down. A boss attack rematch with Avalanche Yeti later occurs in the Gateway stage.
