—Introduction Tagline

Mega Man (ロックマン, Rockman) is a newcomer in Super Smash Bros. 4. He was announced at Nintendo's E3 Direct Conference presentation for the game. It has been said that he does not widely use hand-to-hand combat, but relies on his large arsenal of weaponry. This is somewhat analogous to, but to a further extent than, Snake in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Final Smash Rockman Special 3% black hole bomb, 39% beam Mega Man fires a black hole bomb, which explodes in front of him. If anyone falls into it, the Final Smash begins.

Gameplay Trailer



  • Mega Man is shown to have a slightly different KO explosion, the only character shown so far in Smash 4 (and, by extension, the entire series) to have this feature. Instead of just a single blast of the color of the player port, he also splits into blue orbs in a similar fashion to when he loses all of his health or lands on spikes/lava in Mega Man and Mega Man 2.
  • The promotional poster artwork of Mega Man used on the Smash 4 website mirrors the style of several Mega Man game covers and posters, such as the Japanese Mega Man 7 boxart, in which Mega Man stands in front of a group of allies and/or Robot Masters with the main antagonist looking over from the top.
