I wasn’t going to put this up, but then somebody went and dared me.
2011 is the year of the rabbit in the Chinese zodiac. It actually doesn’t start until February though, or something like that. Here’s a little thingy I put together while intoxicated, which also happens to be the recommended state for viewing this.
Happy New Year, X fans!

I lol’d. Seriously.
Heh heh. XD
Not enough alcohol in my bloodstream, I’m afraid. 😛
Happy new year!
Happy (late) new year!
#20, can I make a request? I’m trying to find the source of some names from the MM series, but I had no luck even in Japanese sites. Do you know if names like “Saint Sigma” (X3), “Psycho Sigma” and “Final Sigma W” (X5), and Sigma’s other forms from X4-X8 were used in a official source? I’d also like to know the origin of the names from enemies in MM8, MM&B, X8 and The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, like “Botom 1 & 2” and the farmer from Sart Farm.
Enemy names for those in MM8, MM&B and so on usually come from the Japanese guide books. I know a lot of those weren’t mentioned in the recent complete works books because there wasn’t approved artwork to include with them, but guide books usually make do with screen shots, and they usually include a list of boss and minor enemy characters. Take Carl/Karl from MoTB, his name was stated in the Tron ni Kobun guidebook you can find on The Source.
For Sigma, a few of his forms do have official names, but Saint Sigma and Psycho Sigma are fan-given names popular on Japanese message boards. Japanese fans love to have names for all of Sigma’s forms just as much as English speaking fans do, so they came up their own. Those haven’t been used officially. Final Sigma W actually has been used officially in game magazines, though. I thought I would find it in the Compendium of Rockman X, but it looks like they opted to just refer to it generically as Sigma’s second form. But that still leaves it a good example of how there’s sometimes more than one officially used name for things.
So, besides Wolf Sigma, Neo Sigma (X2 Virus?), Kaiser Sigma, Sigma Virus, Sigma Head, Sigma Beast, Copy Sigma, and Final Sigma W, which of Sigma’s forms have been named in official sources?
All that really comes to mind is the ones from X4. Death/Grim Reaper Sigma, and the Cyborg, Slime, and Mini Sigma bodies of the final form.
Is that Childe Inrabbita from Megaman Zero 3?
