Burn Rooster 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 causing an uprising at the disposal center and sabotaging its machinery, serving as the boss of the Inferno stage. He attacks with flames and martial arts, growing stronger when he is hit by weak attacks, and can move the pillars in his arena. Defeating Burn Rooster grants Melt Creeper to X, Enkoujin to Zero, and Flame Burner to Axl. His weakness is the Drift Diamond, Hyouryuushou, or Ice Gattling from Avalanche Yeti, which weakens him and puts out his cockscomb. A boss attack rematch with Burn Rooster later occurs in the Gateway stage.
