Kakinbatank is a large defensive robot that appeared in Mega Man 9. It can be red or green.
This robot consists on a large robot with a head, two arms, a big torso, and treads. It initially holds a shield.
In its resting phase, it sleeps while keeping a shield in its front to block possible attacks. When receiving any impact, it wakes up and moves in the direction to be closer to the player character as long as the terrain allows it, and drop the shield to damage the player character if the former gets to be close to it. Else, it will return back to its original position and sleep. In its resting phase, the Kakinbatank will not turn around for any reason and is vulnerable to damage from its back.
If the Kakinbatank drops the shield, it will change its strategy to keep spitting small brown pellets to the player character while standing on the same place. In this mode of attack it can turn around if the player goes to its back.
When it is defeated, the Kakinbatank will have explosions that do not harm the player character.
The direction and the color of the Kakinbatank are set in the Level Builder.
