Blaze Heatnix (ブレイズ・ヒートニックス) is a Maverick from the X era, appearing as one of the main bosses in Mega Man X6.

In the Games

Mega Man X6

Sprite from Mega Man X6.

Blaze Heatnix debuts in Mega Man X6 as one of the eight Mavericks on the Stage Select screen. He was built by Gate to withstand the heat of subterranean hotspots, and joined a disaster relief team specializing in volcanoes. He became arrogant for his elevated power and began leaving behind his colleagues, resulting in needless casualties. Because of this, he was conspired against and disposed of while deep underground. However, he was later resurrected by Gate to serve as a Nightmare Investigator.[1]

Blaze Heatnix serves as the boss of the Magma Area, observing the Nightmare Magma. He fills the arena with lava to limit the player's movement before pestering them with fire attacks. Defeating Blaze Heatnix grants Magma Blade to X and Shoenzan to Zero. His weakness is the Ground Dash or Sentsuizan from Ground Scaravich, which briefly stuns him. A boss attack rematch with Blaze Heatnix later occurs in the ?????? stage.
