B Bitter (or Pop-Up Cannon in Mega Man for Game Gear) is a cannon mounted on a small pole, with the ability to partially hide itself from view when it isn't actively firing at its foes.
B Bitter can be assigned to be either "Green" or "Orange" in colour in the Level Builder.
When B Bitter is farther than 2.5 tiles away from the player in any direction, it will be in its "passive state" and will do nothing but hide partially under the ground.
When B Bitter is 2.5 tiles away from the player or closer in any direction, it will enter its "aggressive state" and will emerge from its hiding space, fire one shot horizontally, and descend back into its hiding space, where it will then repeat the pattern.
When the player is farther than 2.5 tiles away from the "B Bitter" in any direction after activating its "aggressive state", the B Bitter will then return back to its "passive state".
- The enemy's name is roughly based on the phrase "be bitter", likely implying the negative experience of the enemy popping-up and surprising the player may cause them to "be bitter".
- As the B Bitter is intended to hide within tiles when it isn't firing, it can look rather visually awkward in Mega Man Maker when the enemy becomes airborne, while hiding during its "passive state".
- If put over a Spring, the B Bitter can be clipped to the terrain.
