In the Games

Render from Mega Man X7.

Wind Crowrang debuts in Mega Man X7 as one of the eight Mavericks on the Stage Select screen. He is a member of Red Alert who occupies the skies in an airship, serving as the boss of the Air Forces stage. He attacks with projectiles from the background before getting up close and personal with his daggers. Defeating Wind Crowrang grants Wind Cutter to Axl and X, and the V Hanger and Souenbu to Zero. His weakness is the Sniper Missile or Hieijin from Snipe Anteator, which briefly stuns him. A boss attack rematch with Wind Crowrang later occurs in the Crimson Palace.

This winged Reploid has taken control of a massive flying fortress. Crowrang was once a friendly rival of Axl, but now he has no reservations about battling him with his wickedly sharp boomerangs and lethal flying body-slams.

Behind the Scenes

Developer Commentary

"I like how the pattern on his feet resembles scales. Once I added the hexagonal prism to his head, the design of each part came together quickly. I'm so happy that he was given such a nice name. It's small and hard to see during the game, but his model has a skull on his chest too." - (Concept Art Room)[3]


Language Name Origin
Japanese Wind Karasting (ウィンド・カラスティング) "Karasting" is derived from the Japanese mythical creature karasu-tengu, a type of wind demon with crow-like traits.
English Wind Crowrang "Crowrang" is a portmanteau of crow and boomerang.


  • The hexagonal prism on Wind Crowrang's head resembles a tokin, a Japanese piece of headwear commonly associated with the mythical karasu-tengu upon which Crowrang is based.
