|“||You don't want to fight? Well, isn't this interesting? You're a Maverick Hunter... And Maverick Hunters are Reploids designed for fighting.||„|
|~ Boomer Kuwanger|
Boomer Kuwanger, also known as Boomerang Kuwanger, is one of the eight Maverick bosses in the original Mega Man X.
Kuwanger was a Maverick Hunter from 17th Elite Unit directly under Sigma, much like his brother Gravity Beetle. He was a completely logical Reploid, with no concept of right and wrong, specializing in collecting and analyzing combat data. When Sigma began his rebellion, Kuwanger deduced that joining him would be the best course of action, taking control of a tower and turning it into his personal fortress. When confronted by his former friend, X, Kuwanger decides to test X's potential and fights him, but ends defeated.
Boomer Kuwanger quickly teleports around the small arena, eventually dashing in an attempt to grab the player with his pincers or throwing his Boomerang cutter from a distance. His weakness is the Homing Torpedo, which follows his movement even when he vanishes.
