The X era is a conjectural term referring to games and other media based on the Mega Man X games and related spin-offs. It is the second era of the original timeline, set in a time when conventional robots have been replaced by sentient reploids, and chronicles the events of the battles between the Maverick Hunters - including X, Zero and later Axl - and mavericks, reploid criminals commonly led by Sigma.
All events take place in the years 21XX, which is somewhere in the 22nd century.
Mavericks are the bosses of the main stages, and the ones Mega Man gets his weapons from.
The X-Buster is X's primary weapon throughout the era.
