Magma Dragoon, known as Magmard Dragoon (マグマード・ドラグーン) in Japan, is a Maverick from the X era, appearing as one of the main bosses in Mega Man X4. He is a fire-themed Reploid based on a dragon, who attacks with martial arts moves wreathed in flame. He is a former Maverick Hunter who betrayed them so he could fight X and Zero.

In the Games

Mega Man X4

Sprite from Mega Man X4.

Magma Dragoon debuts in Mega Man X4, making his first appearance in the Sky Lagoon stage. A fellow Maverick Hunter leading the 14th Special Unit, he informs X/Zero that the Sky Lagoon has been sabotaged by Mavericks and will fall to the Earth, before he flees.

Magma Dragoon then appears as one of the eight Mavericks on the Stage Select screen, serving as the boss of the Volcano stage. It is revealed that he was the one who sabotaged the Sky Lagoon and has now joined Repliforce so that he can fight X and Zero.[3]

Magma Dragoon fights with Hadoukens and Shoryukens similar to a Street Fighter character, and is a formidable opponent; however, the player can bring a Ride Armor into the battle to gain an advantage. Defeating Magma Dragoon grants Rising Fire to X and Ryuenjin to Zero. His weakness is the Double Cyclone from Storm Owl, which stuns him and resets his pattern; Zero has no equivalent weakness, though Raijingeki deals heavy damage. A boss attack rematch with Magma Dragoon later occurs in Final Weapon 3.

Mega Man X5

Magma Dragoon returns in Mega Man X5 as a digital emulation, serving as the boss at the end of the optional Training Area. He fights the same as in Mega Man X4 but uses fewer attacks and is much weaker, as he is meant to be a mere tutorial boss. Interestingly, Dragoon also has a different voice actor, though their identity is unknown.

Mega Man X DiVE

In Mega Man X DiVE, Magma Dragoon appears as both a playable Hunter Program and as a Maverick Data boss. As a Hunter Program, his Active Skills are Hadoken and Shoryuken. In the game's Story mode, he appears as the final boss of Chapter 10, being fought in Volcano 10-6. His defeat unlocks the Chip for Flame Round.

A Monster Hunter Rise crossover variant of Magma Dragoon, called Malzeno Dragoon, appeared as a boss in Event "Tremble under the King of the Blood Moon!".
