The Pole is a small tadpole-like enemy from Gemini Man's stage from Mega Man 3 that is featured in Mega Man Maker, being present since the game's initial release. Pole are small, blue, slow moving enemies that fly towards the Player Character. They will continuously move towards them similar to the Telly enemy, but move slightly slower. They can be placed in Mega Man Maker like any other enemy, however they are also spawned upon the destruction of Pole Eggs just like how they originally did in Mega Man 3.

Pole Eggs are single tile-sized pulsating spheres from Gemini Man's stage from Mega Man 3 that are featured in Mega Man Maker. They are a type of destructible blocks similar to Dust Blocks with them both being destroyable with as little as one uncharged Mega Buster shot, and also both act as solid walls or platforms while on-screen. However, unlike Dust Blocks when destroyed rather than simply disappearing a Pole Egg will spawn a single Pole enemy. After destroying the Pole Egg, the Pole Egg and the pole do not spawn again even if the player character goes distant or goes to a disconnected screen.

If Pole Eggs are destroyed as the result of a Charge Shot or other big, powerful weapon, they and the Poles they spawn will both instantly be destroyed. This is due to how quickly the Poles spawn after being released from their eggs and their very low HP.
