My work is not for Maverick Hunters. I've never trusted your approach. Therefore, I won't cooperate with you. However... I find you fascinating... No one has ever managed to analyze the infamous X and Zero... But it's too late... Soon, I'll be one of the Mavericks... It's time... I'll have to learn about you through battle. Now... put me out of my misery!
~ Shining Firefly

Shining Firefly, also known as Shining Hotarunicus in the Japanese version and Izzy Glow in the original English translation of Mega Man X5, is one of the eight Maverick bosses from Mega Man X5. Based on a firefly, he is the wielder of the F-Lasers, which Dark Necrobat is weak to. Shining is weak to the Tri-Thunders.

Personality

While Shining Firefly as he preferred to be called in Mega Man X5, isn't cooperative with the Maverick Hunters, it's not because he is truly evil. His actual goal is to avoid fighting, and this led him to seal most of his work off from the public. Since Shining has been infected by the Maverick Virus, he decided to go out in battle.

Appearance

Shining Firefly resembles a small humanoid firefly with a white moustache and beard. He wears red and black armour.

Biography

Dr. Firefly was a Reploid scientist and the world's lead researcher in laser technology. However, he feared his research could be used to create weapons, so he became a recluse and built a fortified laboratory in a castle where he continued his research. As a result, most of his work was never made public. During the Earth Crisis, the Maverick Hunters go into his laboratory after the Laser Device necessary to power up the Enigma cannon, but the place had already been overrun by the Sigma Virus. Shining Firefly, who had already been infected by the virus, refuses to cooperate with the hunters, but since he had not much time left on himself he decides to fight X and Zero to analyze them through battle.

Shining Firefly will mostly teleport around the room, stopping to fire his firefly drones. When on half health, he will also shoot a beam laser from his abdomen which sweeps the entire arena. His weakness is the Tri Thunder.

Trivia

  • In the initial English localization of Mega Man X5, Izzy Glow was named after Izzy Stradlin, a former guitarist for the rock-and-roll band Guns N' Roses.
