Ballade Cracker is Ballade's main weapon originating from Mega Man IV and reappears in Mega Man 10. It was added to Mega Man Maker in version 1.6.0.

Ballade Cracker consists of an explosive projectile that can be thrown in seven directions excluding directly down, similarly to Bass Buster, and explodes upon contact with terrain or any other target that can destroy. When used, the projectile appears in front of the player regardless of the direction it is aimed at. The explosion can damage groups of enemies. There can only be one Ballade Cracker projectile on screen at a time and the player needs to wait for the bombs to fully explode or leave the screen before using the weapon again. It has 56 uses with a full bar when set as a secondary weapon.

Ballade Cracker can damage shielded enemies.


  • Ballade Cracker is the first asset originating from Mega Man IV for Game Boy implemented in Mega Man Maker.
  • Ballade Cracker's description in the Level Builder used to incorrectly state that it could only be thrown in "6 directions". It was fixed to "7" in version 1.6.1 but the change is not mentioned in the changelog for the version.


  • Prior to version 1.6.2, Ballade Cracker's projectiles bounced off shielded enemies.
  • Ballade Cracker does not explode properly when hitting projectiles as of 1.6.3.
