Plates are logos that have appeared in many Mega Man games, especially just before the boss room. Those items have appeared since Mega Man 2.
Plates are special tile assets featured in Mega Man Maker. The plates feature logos of antagonists (and former antagonists) from the series, usually featured just before a Boss's room. Each individual plate takes up a 2x2 space and can be set to one of several color schemes. Unusually for a sort of tile, Plates can be dragged.
They were listed on their own section, but the tile folder for them was renamed "Special" to make space for the Shadow types.
List of Plate Types
- When first added into Mega Man Maker, there was a glitch that would cause the collision of any Plate to not disappear if it were destroyed by a Rolling Drill, thus potentially creating invisible walls or floors. It was later patched in a following update.
