Batton (also known as Bubble Bat) is a small bat surveillance robot. Although Battons where normally designed to monitor forests and caves, they became so popular with people that they where mass produced and sold as pets. Battons in the possession of Dr. Wily where repurposed for combat. They are enemies that originate from Mega Man 2 from Wood Man's stage.

When Batton spawns, it will be in a "passive state", hanging upside-down, and covering its body with its wings to protect itself from damage.

When the player gets 7.5 tiles or closer to the Batton in any direction, Baton will enter an "aggressive state", uncover its body and slowly fly towards the player, with the ability to pass through solid walls. It is vulnerable to attack during its "aggressive state".

If a Batton in its "aggressive state" collides with the player, it will quickly fly straight upwards, despawning if it flies upwards off-screen, or if a ceiling is above it, Batton will latch onto it and return to its "passive state".

Trivia

  • Despite Batton's sprite implying it needs to hang from a physical block, the enemy is not affected by gravity in Mega Man Maker when placed in the Level Builder, making it capable of hanging upside-down in mid-air. In some official appearances like Wood Man's stage in Mega Man 2, some Battons were idle mid-air.

Glitches

  • If a Batton collides with a player while flying through a wall, it will attempt to latch onto a "ceiling" inside the wall.
