Hothead (also known as Changkey Maker) is a torch robot, with the ability to spawn Tackle Fires. Hothead was a robot that originally worked at various festivals, but was repurposed for combat by Dr. Wily. They are enemies that originate from Mega Man 2 from Quick Man's stage.

In Mega Man Maker


When a Hothead spawns, it will throw a single Tackle Fire at the player every few seconds.

The Tackle Fires thrown by Hothead function like projectiles instead of enemies, and as such, cannot be attacked but can be deflected by Shine and Proto Man's Shield. The thrown Tackle Fire can also ignite oil if they collide with it, but the Hothead as on itself cannot ignite oil despite being fire-themed.

If the player gets behind Hothead, it will turn around to face the player.


  • Hothead also appears in Mega Man Powered Up, Mega Man: The Wily Wars, Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge, Mega Man II, and Mega Man (Game Gear).
  • Originally, in Mega Man 2, the screen would go dark after defeating a Hothead, this does not happen in Mega Man Maker however.
  • Despite being fire-themed, in Mega Man 2, there were no Hotheads in Heat Man's stage.
