As of version 1.7.5, there are no folders for its features, but two elements are taken from Mega Man & Bass. Version 1.3.0 brought Bass with the gameplay's foundations from this game and his fusion with Treble, Treble Boost, while 1.5.0 brought the reflective variant of the Yoku Block. Version 1.8.0 will focus on adding much more content from the game.
- Bass' gameplay and Bass' exclusive utility are largely based on his appearance on Mega Man & Bass.
- Bass has the ability to shoot in multiple directions, has a dash, an optional Double Jump ability, and the Treble Boost as a utility.
