Trio the Wheel Is a small orb-shaped machine with eyes, stacked on a pile of three spiked tires, that it has the ability to spin and launch them as projectiles. They are enemies that originate from Mega Man 7 from Turbo Man's stage.

When Trio the Wheel is spawned, it will periodically launch a spinning spiked tire along the ground, in its its facing direction. It will continue to do this attack at regular intervals until it has no tires left. Each time a spike tire is removed from Trio the Wheel's stack, the enemy's hitbox will get shorter and lower to the ground accordingly.

When Trio the Wheel no longer has spiked tires to attack with, it will stay still briefly, before repeatedly jumping forwards in its facing direction, only reversing its direction of travel if it collides with something resembling a wall.

The launched spiked tires are capable of bouncing off of springs. They can be destroyed if they are attacked by the player, if they collide with the player, or if they collide with anything resembling a wall. They can not be deflected by Shine or Proto Man's shield.

Trio the Wheel will not turn to face the player, if the player manages to get behind it.

Trio the Wheel can be set to face either left or right in Mega Man Maker's Level Builder.


  • As Trio The Wheel originated from a game with 16-bit graphics, no official 8-bit sprites of this enemy existed. The sprites were recreated by CosmicGem to match the 8-bit art style used by Mega Man Maker.
  • Trio the Wheel, bares some resemblance to another enemy, Blocky, who is another robot based around the concept of stacked objects.
