Mega Man X4, known in Japan as Rockman X4 (ロックマンX4, Rokkuman X4) is the fourth entry in the main X series, developed by Capcom and released for the PlayStation and Sega Saturn in 1997, and later for Windows in 1998-1999. It is the first X era game exclusive to 32-bit consoles, introducing a new style that would be kept by the following two entries.
The aerial fortress Sky Lagoon comes under attack, causing a catastrophe as it falls on top of a city. Suspicion falls on Repliforce, but when the Maverick Hunters request an investigation, the militia refuses. As a result, Repliforce is branded Maverick. Mired in resentment and aiming for independence, Repliforce enters a large-scale conflict against the Hunters. While X and Zero try to control the situation, Sigma secretly fuels the confrontation from both sides...
|X||X is the main character. He is captain of the Maverick Hunters 17th Unit. His heart is constantly torn between a sense of duty to protect peace and a kindness that makes him hesitant to fight.|
|Zero||An SA-Class Hunter who is a close friend of X, being one of the few to understand him. He is the captain of the Special 0 Unit, and always stays calm and carries out his duties without hesitation.|
|Double||A novice Hunter who has joined the Maverick Hunters. His personality is rash and clumsy. As X's assistant, he provides various support.|
|Iris||Colonel's younger sister. She was saved by Zero during this incident, and she gradually became attracted to him. She tries to stop the fight between her brother and Zero, but...|
|Colonel||A young officer in Repliforce, an army made up entirely of Reploids. He is not only an excellent soldier, but also has a kind side that cares for his subordinates and his sister.|
|General||The supreme commander of Repliforce, who is trusted and respected by all his soldiers. However, he suddenly starts a coup d'état and becomes hostile to X and the others.|
|Sigma||A former Maverick Hunter leader, who became Maverick himself after an encounter with Zero. Sigma was thought to be eliminated, but now appears to be secretly pulling the strings of both Repliforce and the Maverick Hunters.|
|Dr. Light||The creator of X, who has left Light Capsules to deliver him Armor Parts years after his own passing.|
|Dr. Wily||A mysterious silhouette appearing in Zero's dreams. In reality, Dr. Wily is Zero's creator, and urges him to fulfill his destiny by destroying X.|
|Web Spider||Comes down from the ceiling by a thread and launches a web that homes in on X/Zero, which not only damages the Hunter but also renders him immobile until he is able to wiggle free. At half health, he gains a new pattern, spinning webs in the centre of the screen that he quickly scitters between diagonally, either continuing to fire homing webs or releasing small spiders that crawl up the walls.
His weakness can cause him to fall down and be briefly stunned if used on the thread he is hanging by, but only during his first phase.
|Lightning Web||Twin Slasher||Kuuenbu|
|Cyber Peacock||His weakness interrupts his attacks and causes him to teleport away immediately, potentially preventing him from ever attacking.||Aiming Laser||Soul Body||Ryuenjin|
|Storm Owl||Flies in from different directions to use various attacks. His weakness interrupts his attacks and forces him to leave.||Double Cyclone||Aiming Laser||Rakuhouha|
|Magma Dragoon||His weakness resets his pattern, forcing him to jump over X/Zero and potentially preventing him from ever attacking.||Rising Fire||Double Cyclone||Shippuuga/Raijingeki|
|Jet Stingray||Floats down from the sky on either side of the room to release ground-tracing enemies and/or swoop down at X/Zero. He may also sink into the water and generate a vortex to draw X/Zero towards him. At half health, he gains another attack that allows him to fly vertically at X/Zero from above or below.
His weakness interrupts his attacks and causes him to leave immediately after floating down, potentially preventing him from ever attacking.
|Ground Hunter||Frost Tower||Hyouretsuzan/Kuuenbu|
|Split Mushroom||A fast opponent able to create holographics clones of himself. His weakness knocks him down and resets his pattern, forcing him to jump and cling to the opposite wall when he gets up and potentially preventing him from ever attacking.||Soul Body||Lightning Web||Raijingeki|
|Slash Beast||His weakness knocks him down and resets his pattern to attempting to lunge at X/Zero repeatedly.||Twin Slasher||Ground Hunter||Kuuenbu|
|Frost Walrus||His weakness briefly sets him on fire and resets his pattern.||Frost Tower||Rising Fire||Ryuenjin|
|Colonel (Memorial Hall)||Frost Tower||Kuuenbu|
|Colonel (Space Port)||Frost Tower||Kuuenbu|
|Double||Only fought by X. Attacking him with his weakness causes bouncing saw blades or horizontally moving saucers to spawn from his body, making the fight harder.||Double Cyclone||N/A|
|Iris||Only fought by Zero.||N/A||Kuuenbu|
|Sigma (1st form)||Rising Fire||Ryuenjin|
|Sigma (2nd form)||Lightning Web||Kuuenbu|
|Sigma (phase 3)||Mini Bodies||Sigma's conscious is split between two main entities - an alien gunner (Sigma Gunner) and a giant head (Earth Sigma)- accompanied by three additional elemental-based heads, with the fight alternating between phases of fighting each form or dealing with the heads by themselves.
The gunner form may aim and fire multiple shots in a row, or one big laser that traces the floor; the giant head may inhale and spit out debris or blow X/Zero towards a wall of spikes on the right; the elemental heads appearing by themselves use different patterns depending on which head takes priority, with either the blue head tracing the ground with freezing breath, the red head spitting fire from the left side, or the electric head aiming plasma shots from the upper middle that split into electricity.
Both main entities have separate health bars, and must be destroyed individually, which removes them from the phase sequence; the elemental heads can be destroyed, but reappear on the next phase.
