Gemini Laser is Gemini Man's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man 3 and reappearing in Mega Man II and Mega Man: The Wily Wars. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.2.0.

A multi-segmented laser is shot forward, which will bounce off of solid surfaces at an acute angle up to 8 times before passing through terrain. Each segment does 1 unit of damage, and up to 4 units of damage can be done with a single shot. Up to 3 Gemini Lasers can be onscreen at once. It will rebound off of Dust Blocks and Ice Blocks unless it's fired at point-blank or if it has reached its eighth bounce. Firing this weapon while being adjacent and facing left to a 1-tile wide wall will cause one of the laser segments to separate and go through the wall.

Trivia

  • Gemini Laser's description alludes to the fact that firing it in Mega Man 3 would cause the game to slowdown due to the NES being unable to handle having multiple objects onscreen at once.
