The Yashichi, or "Pinwheel" as it is sometimes called.
Game of origin: Mega Man 1

The Yashichi Pickup is a special item found originally in Mega Man 1 that is featured in Mega Man Maker. The pickup is a special energy producing turbine that harnesses wind power. Through this energy source The Player Character will fully refill their health and weapon energy for all their equipped weapons upon picking it up, similar to an M-Tank but used instantaneously rather than being held in the Player's inventory for later use or stopping the gameplay until the health or weapon bar points are given.


  • The Yashichi is the only Health and Weapon Energy recovery Item In Mega Man Maker that does not freeze the screen as the health and energy bar fills, instead instantly resetting all bars back to max in a single second with no animation.
  • The Yashichi uses a unique sound effect exclusive to it when picked up in Mega Man Maker. This sound effect is the original sound heard when collecting any item in the original Mega Man 1.
  • Although explained to be a type of underutilized Air Turbine in continuity, the Yashichi is a reference to other games made by Capcom, specifically the game first made by them called 1984 where it appeared as a flying enemy. It has since reappeared several times in many other game series as a reference including Mega Man.
  • In Mega Man 1 the Yashichi was worth one hundred thousand points.
  • The Yashichi also appears as a pickup in Mega Man 8 that can spawn via the use of Rush Question, Mega Man 10 in easy mode primarily, and in Mega Man 11 in the last Dr. Wily Gear Fortress stage with the item exclusive to Superhero difficulty.


  • Because the Yashichi refills health instantaneously, it is possible to exploit it to bypass being crushed when the Player Character is forced into a wall allowing them to survive and walk around within or zip around the wall.
