Game of origin: Mega Man 5

Power Stone is Stone Man's signature weapon from Mega Man 5 that was added into Mega Man Maker in the Version 1.3 update. The user will summon three large rocks that will orbit around the user while progressively getting further away in a spiral path unit they are off screen.

The weapon has been heavily modified for Mega Man Maker to make it more viable than it originally was in Mega Man 5. Originally, Power Stone would orbit slowly and do very little damage with low durability, causing each stone to be destroyed quickly assuming it could manage to hit the intended target. In Mega Man Maker the Power Stones spawn and rotate much faster, as well as have much greater damage and durability allowing for the move to be used more quickly and destroy more enemies on screen without the stones disappearing after one hit on anything.

Shielded enemies do not block the Power Stone although the weapon cannot damage them in that status. However, Weapon Blocks immune to that weapon do.

Trivia

  • In Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters Power stone is an unlockable weapon, however it is nothing like how it was previously portrayed in Mega Man 5, with it instead summoning a large stone hand that travels across the floor. This may imply it was originally supposed to be a different move altogether unlocked from beating Stone Man similar to how in the same series Pharaoh Man would give the player the Pharaoh Wave rather than the Pharaoh Shot but for whatever reason this move did not receive a new name.
