Roaders are wheeled enemies that appear in the Mega Man series. They usually attack by driving towards the player in an attempt to run them over.

In Mega Man Maker there are two types of Roaders available: the Twin Roader and the Turbo Roader.

The Twin Roader is the first type of Roader available in Mega Man Maker, being added in version 1.0.0. These enemies drive towards the player to attack, turning around if they collide with a wall. While other Roaders in the series only have one wheel, these Roaders have two.

In their attempt to ambush the player character, they can turn back to do so. This can make them to try to stick to terrain on the same height, although this can also make them fall off terrain.

The Twin Roader can come as blue, blue-green, or orange.

Turbo Roader

The Turbo Roader is the second type of Roader available in Mega Man Maker, being added in version 1.4.0. These enemies simply spin in place to attack. After some time, the Turbo Roader will go after the player in a fast speed. It can turn back if when it touches a wall or reaches the edge of a screen, staying in the same area to stop the friction and go quickly to the other direction. Although their direction can be set in the Level Builder, they will always try to run over the player character.

The Turbo Roader can fall from a platform by reaching any edge.

Trivia

  • Since the Turbo Roader comes from the 16-bit game Mega Man 7, it lacks official 8-bit sprites. As a result, the sprites used in Mega Man Maker were custom-made by Spin Attaxx and E-Clare as the enemy was originally made for the Megamix Engine, then ported to Mega Man Maker as its assets are free to use.
