The boss selection ingame.

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 1.5, there are currently 30 bosses. Creators can put one of these Robot Masters in a room for players to fight. Prior to Version 1.5, a player could only have 1 boss per stage, but in 1.5 players can now have multiple bosses with the limit of 200 in a level.

List of Bosses

Currently there are Robot Masters from Mega Man 1 to Mega Man 9. There are 4 from each game excluding 7, 8 and 9, 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, but if they did it, 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.

When 1.5 was released for the first time, the trailer revealed that putting multiple bosses could now be possible.

Bosses can now be programmed to leave items after defeat, but this will cause that defeating them will no longer finish the stage. To activate this possibility on a specific boss, the designer must click on the cranium icon at the bottom left and select an option to happen 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 playing character. Those 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 go to the player's position before being added to their inventory. A change on the weapons, be an unlock or a removal, or a change on which character is on the stage will be triggered instantly upon the 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

  • Prior to Version 1.3.3 of the game, Skull Man's description used to simply be Skull Man Kills, a reference to the Mega Man fangame of the same name. In Version 1.3.3, it was changed to be more consistent with the rest of the Robot Master descriptions, while still keeping in the reference.
  • During the early development of Mega Maker, Guts Man was planned to be alongside Cut Man, but was in the end replaced with Bomb Man.
