While playing Mega Force missions, more specifically, Red Bull Missions, mostly executives of the Val Shark Army and sometimes unaffiliated entities that are different from the Val Shark grunts or many other enemies that show up to attack players. These enemies, if defeated, are added into the Wanted List.
Before starting to hunt Val Shark executives, players need to reach at least Single Fighter to unlock the Wanted List by talking to Zenjiro in Spin Square.
After arresting a certain amount of executives and reaching a certain rank, Zenjiro will expand your Wanted List Lv.
The Maximum Wanted List Lv. is 4.
Criminals appear in every single Red Bull Mission, with a few exceptions.
Most of these enemies have powerful attacks and high defense, not to mention, most of them will block most of the attacks that players might do to them.
If players want to get the harder criminals for their Wanted List, they should bring range Accessories and weapons like Bombs.
A well known strategy is to bring the Power Arms Accessory, and spam the Hold Weak Attack. This will stun the enemies ignoring any defense. However, players need to stay sharp at any time in case enemies escape the "clapping".
Another strategy is to jump in the back of the enemies and spam infinite combos. Since NPCs will not block any attack from the back, obviously. Again, players need to be careful in case enemies turn around to face the player and attack them.
Some enemies might have Super Armor and none of these strategies will work, an option for these treats is to bring the Laser Cannon weapon or any other weapon that deals continuous damage.
Most criminals appear as either bosses, or as a hindrance during Red Bull missions and will run if not dealt with after a while. There are a few rare ones however, that doesn't appear at just about any stages, or rarely appears at United Front Area.

- ` = Never appears at UFA.
- ª = Never appears at UFA, BUT appears at Zen's Mission "Defend Megaforce HQ!".
- † = Kawase's former spot. He only appears both at UFA, and at Hard Mission "Killing Machine" now.
- = It is worth noting that while these identical counterparts are the same albelt for the body difference, their stats are not the same at all, hence the reason why they have a separate wanted list.
- Dangerous Bob's original has more health and damage compared to his weaker counterpart. He also tends to use his special more often on lower health.
- Higher Sorcerer Ponse uses another kind of fire ability that hits farther rather than upper, block and counter commonly and tends to use meteor more often at lower health than his weaker counterpart
