Storm Owl, known as Storm Fukuroul (ストーム・フクロウル) in Japan, is a Maverick from the X era, appearing as one of the main bosses in Mega Man X4. He is a wind-themed Reploid based on an owl, who attacks with vacuum cyclones and feather missiles. He is a member of Repliforce who participates in their coup d'état.

In the Games

Mega Man X4

Sprite from Mega Man X4.

Storm Owl debuts in Mega Man X4 as one of the eight Mavericks on the Stage Select screen. He serves as the boss of the Air Force stage. The game's Japanese manual states he is a member of Repliforce's prestigious General Staff Headquarters, and is leading the air forces to control the skies as a diversionary tactic for the coup d'état.[2]

Storm Owl flies in and out of the arena at will, launching different attacks with every visit. Defeating Storm Owl grants Double Cyclone to X and Tenkuha to Zero. His weakness is the Aiming Laser and Rakuhoha from Cyber Peacock, which disrupts his circuitry and resets his pattern. A boss attack rematch with Storm Owl later occurs in Final Weapon 3.
