Screw Crusher is Punk's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man III and reappearing in Mega Man 10. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.6.0.

It allows the user to throw a saw blade in a parabolic arc that reaches four tiles high before falling down. Up to four Screw Crushers can be fired at once, and they will not despawn if they defeat an enemy.


  • In its original incarnation, Screw Crusher did more damage, but only one shot could be present at a time.
  • It has the highest energy capacity of all weapons, being able to be used 224 times with a full gauge. It shares this trait with Quick Boomerang.
  • In Mega Man 10, Screw Crusher could be used to disarm a Returning Machine Gun Joe's shield since it can hit four times rapidly. This feature is absent in Mega Man Maker, and it shared this trait with the Bass Buster and Water Shield.
  • Screw Crusher is often referred to as peppermints by a lot of players and is often seen in holiday levels.
