Zero is X's friend from the future. Bass thinks he looks girly. He is the last creation of Dr. Wily and is responsible for killing most of the cast with the exception of Auto, Proto Man, X, Bob and George in an event called the Cataclysm. In actuality though, Zero accidently told Dr. Wily about the Cataclysm during the last storyline. Knowing what would happen if Zero was activated, Dr. Wily chose not to activate him. But, in order to prevent a paradox, the cast had to fake their deaths and then move to Acapulco. Zero is speculated to be gay, though early in the comic he was attacked upon returning to the future for being late for a date with Iris.
