Needle Cannon is Needle Man's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man 3 and reappearing in Mega Man II and Mega Man: The Wily Wars. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.1.0.

It enables the user to shoot needles that stick to opponents and deal damage at a rate of 0.5 units per second. Up to 5 needles can be onscreen at once, and holding down the attack key enables rapid-firing. Multiple needles can be stacked onto a single opponent, and the onscreen limit applies here too. When an enemy is defeated, any needles that were attached to it fall straight down, harmlessly passing through other enemies but are capable of breaking any destructible objects while doing so. Needle Cannon's shots will not stick to Bosses, however.
