Magnet Missile is Magnet Man's signature weapon from Mega Man 3. It is featured in Mega Man Maker since its 1.0.0 version.

The Magnet missile is a magnet-shaped projectile fired from the Player's arm cannon. The missile is fired horizontally and attacks enemies who are above or below it by magnetic force, turning sharply in their direction once the enemy is vertically below or above them. The missile will attack the nearest foe it encounters including those that are immune to it. The player can only fire 2 magnets at time, but it can be spammed repeatedly at the same target if it close to the player or to a swarm of enemies.

Trivia

  • Magnet Man can fire three magnets at a time, but the player can only fire two at a time.
  • Originally in Mega Man 3, Magnet Missile was meant to change its direction to turn diagonally rather than from horizontal straight to vertical. There is an unused sprite of a diagonal Magnet Missile in the game. A version of the sprite was used in Mega Man: The Wily Wars and can be seen for a split second.
    • The sprite was remade in Mega Man: The Power Battle but also went unused.
