Game of origin: Mega Man 7
HP: 5
Damage: 4 (contact)

Tom Daddy are silver or red spring-like enemy robots primarily found in Spring Man's stage from Mega Man 7 which are featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.4.0 update. Tom Daddy acts similarly to Peterchy from Mega Man 3, however unlike them they can stick to flat ceilings. If a Tom Daddy runs into a part of the floor or ceiling that blocks it then it will attempt to stretch over it but then retract and move in the opposite direction. The same will happen if they encounter a pit or higher portion of the ceiling that's 3 tiles or taller, with them turning around. However, if the dip in the floor or ceiling is only 1 or 2 tiles in height they will instead extend out and climb down, momentarily compressing, before the continuing to move. Tom Daddy placed on the ceiling will also compress and drop off the ceiling if they near the Player Character to try and collide with them. Once they land they will resume its normal movement on the ground.

Trivia

  • Since Tom Daddy never had 8-Bit sprites in Mega Man 7, it features new custom-made sprites by Sodacoma.
  • The Tom Daddy is an upgraded version of the Tom enemy the appears in Mega Man 4.

Glitches

  • If a Tom Daddy is placed one tile away from a floor raised one tile higher than the floor it is currently on, when it attempts to climb it the end of the Tom Daddy will go through the tile as though it was not there. The Tom Daddy will then become stuck and attempt to change direction back a fourth endlessly unable to escape.
