Vile MMX - Vile.png Vile's miniboss fight has two phases: one in a Ride Armor and one on foot. The first phase is similar to the Highway Stage boss fight and cannot be "won", instead lasting until Vile traps X, which triggers a cutscene leading to his Armor's destruction.

In the second phase, Vile dashes or makes giant leaps across the room, firing paralysing energy shots at X while on the ground or dropping bombs while in the air, the latter of which split into two blasts travelling left and right when they hit the ground.
