Blast Hornet is a hornet-based Maverick that is fought in Mega Man X3. Blast Hornet used to be the second in command of the Maverick Hunter's Special 0 Unit. When his superior Zero received an invitation to go to Dopple Town, Blast Hornet went in his place as Zero was busy. When the Sigma Virus began infecting Reploids in the town, Blast Hornet fell victim to the virus and became a Maverick, joining Dr. Doppler's army.
Blast Hornet also appears as a boss in Mega Man Xtreme 2, and has a cameo appearance in Mega Man X6 as one of Metal Shark Player's attacks.
