Mega Man X, known in Japan as Rockman X (ロックマンＸ Rokkuman Ekkusu) or simply known as X for short, is the main character of the Mega Man X sub-series and an alternate incarnation of the classic Mega Man. He appears in Super Smash Flash as a playable character. Though initially meant to "return" in some way, he was replaced with the original Mega Man in Super Smash Flash 2.
Mega Man X was created by Dr. Thomas Light as the first robot to have the capability to think, feel and act independently. Fearing that X might become a threat to the world (or that the world wasn't prepared for him in the Maverick Hunter X version), Dr. Light sealed X in a capsule to test his circuits. Many years later, Dr. Cain discovered X and was shocked at his design as they were far more complex than anything yet ever seen. Dr. Cain used X's design specifications and mass-produced his own robots which would later be called Reploids. However, because of a design flaw, Reploids grew more violent and these violent Reploids were deemed Mavericks. Thus, the human government formed an organization designed to combat these violent Reploids which would be known as the Maverick Hunters. X then joined the Maverick Hunters, becoming part of Sigma's 17th Elite Unit. Due to his hesitation on the battle-field, X remained a B-Class hunter.

Mega Man X appears as the only starter character of the Mega Man universe (whose name was misspelled as "Megaman", without the X following). All of his attacks involved shooting different beams in a similar way to Samus. He also has voice sample making him one of the few third-party character to have them.
