Rolling Cutter is Cut Man's signature weapon from Mega Man 1, and is one of the weapons featured in Mega Man Maker since version 1.0.0.

When thrown, while standing still, the Rolling Cutter will travel in a teardrop shape with a range of 6 tiles in front of the player and return back to them. If the player moves, or is moving, after throwing the Rolling Cutter, after the Rolling Cutter starts arcing downwards, it will travel back to the player, constantly auto-updating its direction of travel to ensure it is traveling in a straight line towards the player.

Once thrown, the Rolling Cutter will only despawn if it travels off-screen, is deflected by Enemies, Bosses or Level Objects, the player switches to a different weapon, or the Rolling Cutter returns to and touches the player.

The Rolling Cutter has the ability to hit enemies multiple times, depending on the size of the enemy and what part of its arc and return trip it collides with the enemy. It also has the ability to pass through walls and unarmored / unshielded Enemies and Bosses.

The player can have only one Rolling Cutter on screen at a time.


  • This weapon used to be the icon for the Weapons Menu in Mega Man Maker's Level Builder from Version 1.0.0 to Version 1.0.9. It was changed when the Level Builder's interface was overhauled in Version 1.1.0.
  • In Mega Man Maker, if the player loses all their health while a Rolling Cutter is returning to them, the Rolling Cutter will auto-update its direction of travel to be traveling to the left, regardless what direction it was traveling prior. This odd quirk is likely related due to how Mega Man Maker handles a player in their "death state".
  • Oddly, when Cut Man uses the Rolling Cutter, it travels in a straight line before returning to him, unlike the player, where it travels in an arc before return to them.
  • It can destroy the entire Gabyoall family in 1 hit.
