Octopus Batteries (also known as Octo Batteries or Adhering Suzys) are small one-eyed robots that originate from various stages in Mega Man 1 and debuted in version 1.0.0 of Mega Man Maker. Octopus Batteries have the ability to adhere themselves to solid surfaces, fly from wall to wall, and function like barricades when placed in groups.

When spawned, an Octopus Battery will stay in place for a short period of time with its eye closed, after which it will open it and move in a specific direction. Their default movement direction can be set to be up, down, left, or right in Mega Man Maker's Level Builder.

If an Octopus Battery flies off-screen while moving it will despawn. If it flies into something resembling a wall, ceiling, or floor, it will stay in place for a short period of time with its eye closed, after which it will open it and move in the opposite direction it was traveling prior.

They can be set to be the colors red, orange, or blue, in Mega Man Maker's Level Builder.

They are also weak to Rolling Cutter, Fire Storm and Thunder Beam, weapons that despite their power can destroy them in just one hit.
