|~ Gravity Antonion|
Gravity Antonion, also known as Gravitate Antonion, is a boss and a minor antagonist in Mega Man X8. He was a Repliroid who was tasked with researching gravity. Gravitate had his cortex upgraded to handle his research equipment, and this made him very smart. His weapon is the Squeeze Bomb, which fires a small ball that becomes a black hole. Earthrock Trilobyte is weak to this weapon.
He was voiced by Hayata Ishida in Japanese and Roger Rhodes in English.
Gravity Antonion is well respected in his field, but despised the labels given to him, positive or negative. To Gravitate, the world was arrogant to give him such labels. Gravitate truly believed in his master's cause, believing that the world was indeed corrupted and needed cleansing.
Gravity Antonion takes his design from a soldier ant. He has a pair of antennae that sprout from his head and a red, bulbous abdomen on his behind, and mndibles surrounding his mouth.
Gravitate makes his lair in his fortress, Primrose, which is built on top of his old laboratory. In order to reach Gravity Antonion, players have to manipulate the gravity to make their way to a green portal that leads to the next room. Gravity Antonion dwells in the last room.
VAVA may appear as the mid-boss, but if not, a puzzle that features moving blocks takes his place.
Gravitate has several moves at his disposal. One of his attacks has him summon a block above his head. He will then proceed to throw this cube at the heroes. For another attack, Gravitate may summon a black hole that sucks the heroes in. However, this only restricts movement, unlike how X uses it. Gravitate may also make a hammer from some of his cubes and swing it, rotate the gravity by running up his room's wall, or spitting acid out of his mouth. Gravitate is weak to the Shadow Runner.
Upon losing half his health, Gravity Antonion will summon a storm of cubes that rains down from high like a meteor shower. This phase ends after ten seconds.
This starts after the last cube from Gravity Antonion's second phase drops. Gravitate will continue using his attacks from his first phase, but can also use two cubes from his cube rain attack. This form, like in his first phase, is weak to the Shadow Runner.
Upon defeat, Gravity Antonion surrenders his Squeeze Bomb.
- Gravitate Antonion is similar to Gravity Beetle due to his gravity theme and insectoid appearance. On top of that, the two have similar attacks as their weapons.
- Gravitate Antonion has only one theme for his stage, with trait being shared with Avalanche Yeti and Gigabolt Man-O-War.
