The Robot Hawk does not bond with any of Hiryu's lifebar units, and remains flying around the area close to where it was released for a while.イーグルフライト).
Option-C is the first Option to be collected, found in an Pickup Cradle at the bottom of Kazakh City's Transit Station, protected by Pei Pooh. Its considered the most effective of the three, killing most weaker Troopers and doing considerable damage to stronger enemies and bosses for a small energy cost.
In Marvel vs. CapcomEdit
Hiryu uses Option C in his Formation C technique, where he commands one Hawk robot to drop a Parachute Bomb on his enemies. The strength of the button pressed determines how far away from Hiryu the bomb is dropped. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, the Hawk Option was added as a variation of Formation A, where Hiryu calls forth one to soar across the screen, hitting airborne enemies. This technique was later named "Formation A2".
Several Options B and C are also summoned en-masse during Hiryu's Legion Hyper Combo, covering the entire screen as they rush from one end of the screen to another, hitting the enemy several times in the process.
