The full name of Mr. X is

MegaMan X

The items in his daily routine represent

The bosses in a MegaMan X videogame, or the weapons obtained by defeating them. Because the list is cyclic, the bosses must be ordered according to which boss is vulnerable to the weapon Mr. X obtains by defeating the previous boss. That boss prizes and vulnerabilities form a cyclic list is true for every MegaMan game in the main series.

But which...

The "forecast about cyclones twice" is sufficient to single out MegaMan X4. The items in the schedule correspond to:
Lightning Web: Search around internet like a blitz.
Soul Body: Exercise, both physically and mentally.
Aiming Laser: Direct and amplify a searchlight.
Double Cyclone: Forecast about cyclones twice.
Rising Fire: Watch the sunrise.
Frost Tower: Check his refrigerator.
Ground Hunter: Set mouse traps on the 1st floor.
Twin Slasher: Copy a horror movie.
