|Metal Blade's concept art in Mega Man 2|
It is a contextually powerful weapon with it being able to fire in all eight directions, travel through terrain, and pierce through enemies that are killed by it. There can be up to three player-generated blades on screen at any given time.
Due to half the robot masters in Mega Man 2 having a weakness to metal blade, the Metal Blade did insane damage to most enemies in the game because of how the weapon's weakness table is set up. In Mega Man Maker most enemies that would die quickly to it don't for balance reasons.
- In Mega Man 2, four of the eight Robot Masters held some form of weakness to the Metal Blade - including Metal Man himself, who could be defeated in one hit in the "Normal Mode" of the American version and two in Hard Mode.
- In Mega Man Maker, Fly Boys are weak to the player's Metal Blade.
