Megaman 8 (Released as "Rockman 8: Metal Heroes" in Japan) is the eighth chronologically canonical Mega Man game in the main series, and was released for both the Sony PlayStation 1 and Sega Saturn. Both received high praise on the graphical and audio quality, however the plot and gameplay were panned at the time of release as somewhat derivative, often being compared to the Mega Man X series from which it did borrow several mechanics.

In Mega Man Maker

The first asset from Mega Man 8 that is in Mega Man Maker is the Party Ball, although this element's function is more remniscent of its appearance in Mega Man Powered Up, acting as an end goal for the level rather than dropping items.

After seemingly being overlooked in the sneak peeks for 1.5.0, the last one confirmed that Mega Man 8 content would be added on Mega Man Maker in that update, where the Flame Sword, Bunby Tank DX and tiles from Sword Man and Astro Man were shown.
