|Artwork of Hot Dog from Mega Man 2|
Hot Dog (or Friender depending on localization) is a blue dog robot that was originally meant to protect forests. They have a fire extinguisher on their tail, but Dr. Wily modified them to be able to breathe fire. They originate from Mega Man 2 and appear in Wood Man's stage. It also appears in Wily 2 of Wily tower in Mega Man: The Wily Wars and in Mega Man II.
When Hot Dog is spawned, it will teleport in, just like Tama, giving the player a moment to freeze time it with the Flash Stopper to rush buy it before the enemy fully spawns into the level. Otherwise, its behaviour is to shoot a stream of fireballs in a pattern until it is defeated or despawned.
Hot Dog will not turn around to face the player if the player goes behind it. Hot Dog's biggest weakness is Leaf Shield, which defeats them in one hit.
- Hot Dog is the largest enemy in Mega Man Maker, being 4x4 blocks, or 16 tiles, in size (Tama is the second-largest, at 5x3 blocks, or 15 tiles in size).
- Hot Dog's fireballs sprites are larger than their actual hitbox, meaning you can be slightly inside the edge of the fireball's sprite without taking damage. This is not a glitch, and is accurate to the source game, Mega Man 2.
