The Metal Blade can be thrown into the ground, allowing Mega Man and other characters to pick up and use it as an item. When thrown it can be caught by the opposing character and thrown at Mega Man or other players. It causes 3% damage per hit, usually hitting a target twice, and its damage increases to 5% when used as an item. Only one of the user's Metal Blade can be present at a time.
Metal Blade is the Special Weapon that Mega Man obtains after defeating the boss Metal Man, first appearing in Mega Man 2 for the NES. It can be thrown in eight directions multiple times at high speed and consumes little energy, and is the second least energy consuming weapon in the game, behind Quick Boomerang. It is Flash Man's and one of Wood Man's weaknesses; ironically, it is also one of Metal Man's weaknesses.
