Mega Man Details For Super Smash Bros.

By Ishaan . June 11, 2013 . 11:46am

Phew, OK. Wii Fit trainer gal wasn’t Nintendo’s only special announcement. Nintendo just shared a few details on Mega Man, who will be joining Super Smash Bros. as a new playable fighter, too.


Mega Man will have his Leaf Shield and Flame Sword attacks in the game. He uses Rush as his double jump, and also has access to a Metal Blade and Crash Bombs. Mega Man can also do a slide attack.


When he gets KOed, he splits into atoms like the NES games.

  • Megaton Man! you go nintendo!

  • BillyMK

    I wanna hear about a Protoman and Bass skin now. Bass seems a little unlikely though.

    • I want skins throughout the game.

      We should be able to unlock alt-costumes for characters, like the Dr. Mario outfit.

      I personally wouldn’t even mind paying for some (as long as they’re just a visual change it’s cool with me).

      • kagekiri

        YES! More skins; not mere recolorings, but full on model changes!

        That’s way funner an unlock than the thousands of trophies, with mediocre clone-characters.

        The alt-costumes/entering/poses in PS All-Stars were more enticing for completionists like myself (though I’m not sure I’m psyched if we’re going to have to pay for some of them or new characters/levels, like PS All Stars).

        • I don’t mind as long as there are enough unlockables and the DLC isn’t the obvious stuff (it should be sstrictly obscure Nintendo properties).

      • Slayven19

        Yes I want costumes and lots of them, we need them.

    • SonicRulez

      Proto Man, Bass, Mega Man X. Megaman.EXE. All that!

    • Tonton Ramos

      Ash Ketchum skin for Pokemon Trainer lolz

  • Byas

    Take notes, Capcom.

    • Kaihedgie

      Okay kid we get it, you have a hate boner for Capcom. Take it elsewhere. We don’t need this turning into DmC all over again.

      I like how you guys are also quick to ignore or forget that Capcom is the reason he’s in this game in the first place

      • Byas

        Oh ho, I can’t even be happy because someone actually did something good with a franchise I like, while the owners did nothing but cancel games and troll the fanbase?

        • Kaihedgie

          You don’t sound like a happy person. If you were, you’d probably wouldn’t be taking your time biting the hand that feeds.

          I’d wager to bet that even if Capcom announced a new Mega Man game today and released it, you’d find some way to whine about it. It’s been that way for nearly three years now

          • Byas

            Sure, because I dislike games exactly because Capcom made; And that’s why I hated Dead Rising, MML3, MMU and all other Megaman huh… Except that I loved them. Now, if the next game will actually be good or even if it will actually exist it’s another story, and if it turns out to be bad it wouldn’t be because I hate Capcom or something like it but because they screwed up.

          • Kaihedgie

            Try to put it anyway you wanted, honestly you’re all the same to me posting the same tired out comment of “Take notes Capcom”. It makes me feel uncomfortable setting foot in the Mega Man wiki as a mod knowing that I have to be associated with a bunch of unreasonable ungrateful people who apparently do not know what the word appreciation means.

          • Byas

            I guess I really am an ungrateful bastard. These guys spend their time canceling games I like and trolling fans, all of it just for me, and I still can’t appreciate it… I’m a lost cause.

        Thank God for downvote features. I’ve seen enough of your idiocy on SRK before they implemented a downvote feature for idiots like you.

        Everyone else just ignore this idiot, he’s already established himself on as a hardcore Capcom fanboy who white-knights them at every opportunity. Thank god he stopped posting there.

  • Highasthesky

    I kinda feel like super smash flash did all the work, and Nintendo kinda…..never mind i’m just happy Megaman is getting proper treatment in project x zone and SSB4 Edit: why when Nintendo gets a exclusive hold on something it somehow becomes better? The new Nintendo exclusive Sonic game looks awesome.The two games that have “real” Megaman are exclusive to Nintendo consoles.

  • Kaitsu

    Good good…now I need to know what the Tekken team did with the mechanics. I want boners.

  • This has been requested for SOOOO long. This is awesome. Here is hoping there are even more awesome characters.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Mario, Sonic,Snake, and now Megaman?! oh snap!!

  • LunarKnite

    Nintendo has a developer interview with Sakurai talking about the 3 new characters here:!

    • HerosLight

      3 New characters?

      Megaman, Wii Fit Trainer…

      Theres one more announcement?

      • XiaomuArisu

        Villager from Animal Crossing

      • vipo

        Villager. i think

        • HerosLight

          Oh right right..

          Forgot that one.

  • Brimfyre

    I’m not a big modern Megaman fan, but as a fan of the NES games, his reveal literally brought a tear to my eye.

  • Go2hell66

    seeing zero split up into atoms in mvc3 always filled my heart with joy,

    Ptew tew tew tew tew!

    broken ass character…

  • kagekiri


    Is that in stam mode? Or a defeat pose…?? Or is the system different than previous Smashes????


    *breathes deeply*

    I can’t wait.

    • Testsubject909

      You can see it in the trailer. But I’m 2 hours late to the party, you probably saw it by now.

      • kagekiri

        Yeah, good clue. I probably should’ve replied that I finally watched and found out out, so thanks!

        I wonder if they’ll throw in other custom ring-out animations..from what I saw, Megaman’s seems to be the only custom one, but maybe I’m just not looking close enough…

  • NightzeroAX

    When I heard Wily’s Castle theme I orgasm’d. I hope they include Bubble Man’s theme.

  • Symbol de Au

    Derp. Wrong article. Anyhoo there’s a lot of screenshots and what-not on the official website.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    I hope Snake is back too.

    • Testsubject909

      Not sure why you got downvoted.

  • Letiumtide

    My jaw dropped when I saw Mega Man. I’ve never really been much for Smash Bros, but having been an avid megaman fan since the very first one I’m ready to hop on board the Smash Bros Train.

  • This is where Megaman is, Real Doom.

    Now go home to Maximillian and eat some yogurt.

  • epy

    I REALLY hope this is an initiative by Capcom to “revive” Megaman and not just:

    Nintendo/Bamco: Hey! Can we use Megaman for our game?
    Capcom: Yeah, sure, whatever. We don’t use him anyways. Oh, leave the check here.

    The way they went with Megaman’s almost completely robotic expressions is interesting if a bit weird. He’s always very full of life in most media he’s been.

    • Göran Isacson

      I think it’s supposed to be a callback to his original sprite, where he mostly had this determined look on his face and only made facial expressions in cutscenes.

  • AaqibRawat

    mega man is sho cuwte

    i love his little face and the jump shoot animation :)

  • They should remove alternate colors and add alternate MODELS! Like, making Mario have a Dr.Mario costume and add him the moveset it had in meele, the same for Young Link with Toon Link.

    • AzureRyuujin

      Or, going with Mega Man, a Proto Man or Bass skin.

  • Sardorim

    I wanted Megaman X. >_>

    • Tonton Ramos

      Save it for MVC4 okay?

  • Göran Isacson

    Megaman has Metal Blades.

    Master Hand help them all.

    Oh and super jazzed for Megaman making an appearance and finally getting some spotlight and all that. God, that final half minute or so was just… all I ever wanted. All I ever needed. Now I wonder if Sonic and Snake are still in the game, or if they’ve been ousted in favor of new, shinier 3rd party challengers.

  • Beat

    Megaman looks way OP

  • Anonymous

    I personally would have preferred Starforce or Battle Network Megaman, But Classic Megaman is fine too

  • LaserVision

    I love everything about the redesign (more Astroboy like, the glowing eyes and helmet are lovely) And I love how they added weapons from 1,2,3 and the underrated 7 and 8. Don’t know which one Flame Man (not sure if it was 5 or 6). Next step is to add the Quick Man stage. That would be amazing.

    • J_Joestar

      he’s from 6.
      and DEAR LORD NO for Quickman stage.

  • CirnoLakes

    Mega Man in Smash Bros.

    No Mega Man in Street Fighter x Tekken.
    And no, I refuse to call that creepy man Mega Man. He may be a man but he is not mega.
