Zero Part 1

Built by the criminally insane
An evil man with a gifted brain
Crafted a hero built to end all
When the others have fallen, he still stands tall

A humanoid robot, a Reploid they're called
The originally designed's release date was stalled
For fear the long established rules would break
Could a self-choosing robot have what it takes?

Their fears were for naught, X knew what was right
A hero at heart, for justice he would fight
And alongside him all the way, his best friend he knows
A villain turned heroic, a Reploid named Zero

For years on years they fought the forces of crime
Maverick Reploids were the source every time
Led by a once great leader gone bad
His name was Sigma, once sane, now gone mad

Throughout the long wars, strange dreams plagued Zero
And several went on to question the origins of this hero
Dreams of a man so very insane
Imprinted into what would be Zero's brain

Then calamity struck in the form of disease
Bringing the people of the world to their knees
It made Reploids Mavericks, few kept their heads
But without a form of cure, soon all would be dead

Even the mighty X suffered at its hands
Powerless to help while it ravage the land
But one kept his mind and even grew strong
From its dastardly effects, incubated so long

The already mad Sigma grew even less stable
Soon only X and Zero would be able
To save the world from his outstretched hand
The only two who could possibly make a stand

Soon Zero was infected, but he wasn't made weak
It made him even stronger, who knows when he'd peak
But the nightmares became worse and soon Sigma would attack
The final assault on a dying Earth, humanity would not last

The virus corrupted Zero, the power was too great
And on he fought against X, there was no avoiding that fate
But X showed him the light and stepped back on the path
Only Sigma remained, and great was his wrath

The final blow was struck but the repercussions were great
Zero went missing, presumed dead was his fate
X vowed to fight in the late hero's name
But though he had vanished, Zero hadn't given up the game
