Zero is one of the protagonists of the Mega Man X series, and thus of Mega Man X: Unit 49. He is the ultimate masterpiece of Doctor Albert W. Wily, finished somewhere in the 21th century, as the sucessor of Bass. He fights alongside Mega Man X to put an end to the Maverick Wars and fulfill the wishes of his friend.
Zero always kept his feelings inside, remaining cold even with X and Axl most of the time. Although he's outwardly emotionless in most of time, he is capable of care for the others, which explains why he tends to make sacrifices for the sake of the people he believe in. Zero doesn't have any problems in fighting to achieve the dream of peace he shares with his friend, unlike X that would prefer to achive that in a more pacific way.
Despite having a great power and sacrificing himself for the others, he doesn't view himself as a hero nor a superior reploid, thinking this person is actually X.
The incidents in the beginning of the comic series and the progressing Great Neo Maverick War are making Zero more easily irritable, as he loathes how Saturn and his allies are trying to hurt his friends psychologically and pointlessly extend the wars once again. Knowing that things will get worse, he wants to wipe out the Neo Maverick Army as soon as possible and does not tolerate any runarounds during his missions.

In one of their missions, three identical mysterious reploids appeared in a city nearby the 17th Unit Base, X and Zero went to the chase with the Operators' assistance.
