Mega Man X6, known in Japan as Rockman X6 (ロックマンX6, Rokkuman X6) is the sixth entry in the main X series, developed and published by Capcom for the PlayStation in 2001-2002, becoming the final Mega Man game for the console. It later received a Windows port in a few regions.


Three weeks after the fall of the Eurasia colony, a mysterious phenomenon called the Nightmare begins to occur. Rumors spread that the cause of these Nightmares is the ghost of Zero, leading X to embark on an investigation. Secretly, the genius scientist Gate is manipulating the Nightmare from the shadows, having created it from a fragment containing Zero's DNA. He also used it to create the strongest Reploid ever, High Max, who now stands in X's way. Can X put a stop to Gate's ambitions...?[1]
