Zero gains an EX Skill from a boss if his rank is at least A when he defeats it. Keep in mind, it's his rank upon beginning the mission that counts, not the rank he gets at the end of the mission (which counts for the next boss). These can be equipped and unequipped from the subscreen.

Note: The sprites for certain EX Skills in the listings have been given a blue backdrop to make them easier to contrast against the white backdrop of this page.
