|~ Sting Chameleon to X|
Sting Chameleon is one of the eight Mavericks in the original Megaman X. He is sly and only respects the strong, which was possibly his reason for joining Sigma. Another reason that he turned Maverick may have been due to the involvement of hostages. He is voiced by Roger Rhodes.
Sting Chameleon can blend into his surroundings to near invisibility. While invisible, he will either move close to the player to try and his him with his tongue or fire his Chameleon sting by swinging his tail. In the remake, he can fire a faster version of his Chameleon Sting after a short charge. His deadliest attack is hanging from the ceiling by his tongue and cause spikes to rain on the player.
His weakness is the Boomerang Cutter when playing as X and the Metal Crescent when playing as Vile.
- Interestingly, despite being used to cut off Flame Mammoth's trunk and a couple of Launch Octopus' tentacles, the Boomerang Cutter cannot cut off Sting Chameleon's tail.
- According to his conversation with Vile, Sting Chameleon has a lot of respect for him.
