Deep Sea Base Stage

X-Hunters

After defeating two of the game's main Mavericks, the X-Hunters appear on the map and travel to random stages that have not been completed yet as optional mini-bosses. Each one holds one of Zero's parts, which allow the player to skip a battle later in the game and change the ending if all three are recovered without letting an X-Hunter get away.

To fight them, the player must venture into a stage where an X-Hunter is shown to be hiding and locate a hidden boss door, which will only open if an X-Hunter is present and allow him to challenge the mini-boss before continuing with the stage. Undefeated X-Hunters remain on the map and change locations every time X completes or exits a stage, but will disappear one by one if he completes too many stages without defeating them.
