Mega Man X is ranked 19th on the tier list, just below mid tier. Mega Man possesses a strong projectile game due to the diversity of different shots he possesses, which allows him to deal with characters without having to get close, much like Samus. Also, unlike Samus, Mega Man X does not extend his hitbox when he fires, making his attacks more difficult to punish.
However, Mega Man X's projectiles move slowly and have a slow rate of fire, which makes them fairly telegraphed and thus easy to dodge. Additionally, he has no moves that are dedicated to close range combat, giving him difficulties against fast, rush down-heavy characters.
His pros are slightly outweighed by his cons, putting him at the top of low tier.
