Similar to fighting Gyro Man and Astro Man, Blast Hornet would be too difficult to beat without his weakness. Hornet will buzz and try to grab Mega Man X (character) where he's standing. Later, Hornet will shoot Parasitic Bombs on the wall, making it difficult for X to wall jump. Using Gravity Well will send the hornets up to outer space, but Hornet will land on the ground instead. Hornet will also summon a cursor to let parasites attack X where he's standing. If X uses Gravity Well, the parasites will go to outer space. To stop this, X must avoid the parasite or destroy it. If the parasites leave the screen, the cursor will be removed, also when destroying it. Hornet will then repeat again.
Blast Hornet is one of the flying bosses that are stunned when using a weapon. The others are Cloud Man, Astro Man and Tengu Man. Gyro Man doesn't count, but he's stunned in Mega Man Anniversary Collection if Mega Man uses Plant Barrier
Blast Hornet and Hornet Man are the only bosses that have the name, "Hornet".
