The boss selection screen in Mega Man Maker.

Bosses are a category of placeable objects in Mega Man Maker, they are one out of three ways the player can beat the stage (the others being picking up an Energy Element and shooting a Party Ball). As of version 1.6.3, there are 34 bosses. Creators can place one of these Robot Masters in a room for players to fight. Prior to version 1.5.0, a player could only have one boss per stage, but since 1.5.0, players can have multiple bosses with the maximum of 10 active at once and a total of 200 in a level.

List of Bosses

As of version 1.6.3, there are Robot Masters from Mega Man to Mega Man 11. There are 4 from each game excluding Mega Man 7 through Mega Man 11 which have 2 bosses each. The reason behind this is that the developers often select from two to four bosses due to the complex programming they need, and the bosses brought are two from one game they are implementing and two from the other.

Multiple Bosses

Prior to 1.5.0, a level could only have one boss at the time. At the time, some players tampered with the files to get multiple bosses; however, the boss music would not play. If one intended to put another boss in the level editor, the previous boss would disappear and its settings would be passed on the newly created boss.

Since version 1.5.0, bosses can be programmed to leave items after defeat though this will cause defeating them to no longer finish the stage. To activate this functionality on a specific boss, the designer must click on the skull icon at the bottom left of the boss menu and select an item to drop if the boss is defeated. The three groups of possibilities are: a new pickup, a change in the weapon roster and a change on the player character. However, these possibilities are not mutually exclusive.

If a pickup is selected, different things will happen depending on the item. Most pickups will be left where the boss was defeated, while Keys will travel to the player's position before being collected. A change on the weapons, be it an unlock or removal, or a player character change is triggered instantly upon a boss' defeat.

On a screen, the maximum number of bosses is 10. An eleventh boss added will not be recognized by the program. In the whole stage, the limit for multiple bosses is 200.

Trivia

  • During the early development of Mega Maker, Guts Man was planned to be in the game alongside Cut Man but was replaced by Bomb Man.
  • Prior to version 1.3.3, Skull Man's description was simply Kills, a reference to the Mega Man fangame Skull Man Kills. It was updated with information about his attack patterns in version 1.3.3 to be more consistent with the rest of the Robot Master descriptions while still keeping in the reference.
  • As of version 1.6.3, Mega Man 11's Robot Masters, Blast Man and Bounce Man, retain their Double Gear abilities from the original game.
