Magna Centipede (or Magna Hyakulegger in Japanese) is a centipede-based Maverick in Mega Man X2. When he was a Maverick Hunter of the unknown Special Unit, he became a Maverick when the X-Hunters brainwashed him.
In all games where he appeared, Magna Centipede will teleport to another space like a ninja does (doing the pattern like Boomer Kuwanger does). First, Mega Man X has to slide under him to avoid his landing. Later, Centipede will fire his Magnet Mines at Mega Man X until the Magnet Mines decide to attack him. Later, Centipede will make a weird noise to magnetize Mega Man X until he stops the attack, making the pattern a combination between Magnet Man and Shadow Man. If he gets close to Centipede, he'll wobble X until he stops. Centipede then repeats again.
In Mega Man Xtreme 2, Magna Centipede's weakness is Bomb Bee and he appears in Boss Attack mode.
Magna Centipede appears in the books, Rockman X and Rockman X Mega Mission 2.
Magna Centipede is one of the bosses to have extra limbs as he has extra arms. The other is Centaur Man as he has extra legs.
Magna Centipede's Japanese name, "Hyakulegger" means "one-hundred legs".
