An unused sprite sheet of Pointkun in Mega Man Maker.

Pointan is a blue mouse pointer with eyes. It first appeared in Mega Man 10 as an enemy in Sheep Man's stage and Wily Stage 1. In Mega Man Maker', a small Pointan commonly referred to as Pointkun replaces the cursor in menus and in the Level Builder (although this can be turned off in the options menu). Pointkun can come in eleven different colors, blue, red, green, purple, pink, yellow, brown, dark blue, black, gray, and white. Pointan is considered the game mascot and also features prominently in the various trailers for Mega Man Maker, using its sprites from Mega Man 10.

As an enemy


Pointan was confirmed to appear in 1.6.0. This enemy generates a set of four cyan window glasses that will go in different trajectories. To generate them, Pointan creates a selection rectangle in the same way the mouse cursor of a computer selects elements to work with. The set of window glasses can be of 1x4,2x2, or 4x1. After the window glasses go in their ways, the Pointan does another pattern of window glasses.

Trivia

  • In the game's files, there are 14 frames of unused animation for Pointkun, possibly ranging from uses like idle animations or editing a text box.
