Storm Eagle, known as Storm Eagleed (ストーム・イーグリード) in Japan, is a Maverick from the X era, first appearing as one of the main bosses in Mega Man X. He is a wind-themed Reploid based on an eagle, with agile flight and the ability to create powerful gusts of wind.

Like the rest of the Mavericks in the first game, he was previously part of the Maverick Hunters, specifically serving in the 7th Airborne Unit.

In the Games

Mega Man X

Sprite from Mega Man X.

Storm Eagle debuts in Mega Man X as one of the eight Mavericks on the Stage Select screen. He serves as the boss of Sky Stage. The Japanese game manual states he is a former Maverick Hunter of the 7th Airborne Unit who was forced to join Sigma's rebellion, and has taken control of an airport using the Death Rogumer, an aerial battleship.[4]

Storm Eagle's attacks are dangerous for their ability to push X off the boss arena to his doom, but using the Foot Parts's Dash ability effectively counters this threat. Defeating Storm Eagle grants X the Storm Tornado and causes the Death Rogumer to crash into Power Plant Stage, cutting its power. His weakness is the Chameleon Sting from Sting Chameleon, though it only deals increased damage with no extra effects. A boss attack rematch with Storm Eagle later occurs in Sigma Stage 2.

Mega Man Xtreme

In Mega Man Xtreme, Storm Eagle returns as a digitized Maverick in the Mother Computer. He is one of the four bosses in Normal Mode, being the boss of Sky Stage. He again yields Storm Tornado to X, but because Sting Chameleon is not in this game, Eagle's weakness is changed to Wheel Gator's Spin Wheel. Storm Eagle is later part of the boss attack in Sigma Stage 3.

Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

In the remake Mega Man Maverick Hunter X, Storm Eagle receives a redesign but plays largely the same role as in Mega Man X, being the boss of New-type Airport. He was forced to work for Sigma and is reluctant to fight X, but finds himself with no other choice.

For X, Eagle is still weak to Chameleon Sting and yields Storm Tornado upon his defeat, while for Vile he is weak to weapons obtained from Sting Chameleon (Cerberus Phantom or Rising Specter) and yields the Speed Devil upgrade. In Hard Mode, he gains a new attack where he casts feather lasers from above while flapping his wings. Eagle's boss attack rematch later occurs in Sigma Palace 2.

Storm Eagle appears in the included animation "The Day of Σ" , which is set before the events of the game. He briefly speaks with Zero after his virtual training, calling him to a briefing to find the Mechaniloid hackers. He is then deployed by Sigma after X and Zero find the hackers murdered.

Mega Man X DiVE

In Mega Man X DiVE, Maverick Data of Storm Eagle appears as the boss of the event Prince of the Skies. His defeat unlocks the Chip for Storm Tornado.

A variant of Storm Eagle called Flaming Storm Eagle appeared in the New Years 2020 event, Auspicious Dream of the New Year. He fights with fire and festival attacks in addition to his usual wind attacks.

Mega Man Maverick Hunter X manual Leader of the 7th Air Squadron, his forte is lightning-quick dog fights and air battles. Always calm, cool and collected, he doesn't talk much and can be difficult to approach, though he is very popular with his men. When the rebellion broke out, he tried his best to stop Sigma, but was forced to bow to Sigma's immense power and now works for him. When Storm Eagle is controlling the skies with a new air destroyer, no one gets past him, through the air at least.

Eagle's first reaction to Sigma's uprising was to fight against him, but realizing he was severely outmatched, he decided to join Sigma rather than be destroyed. Now he has taken control of the Death Rogumer, a new class of aerial battleship.

Behind the Scenes

Developer Commentary

"Inafune did Eagle and Penguin, Kaji designed Mandrill, Octopus, and Chameleon. Mammoth, Armadillo, and Kuwanger were Tazaki's. Even as I watched them work, I could really see each of their distinct flavors coming out in their illustrations." - (Tatsuya Yoshikawa)[3]
