|Ballade as seen in Mega Man 10.|
Ballade (バラード Barādo?) is the third and last "Mega Man Killer" robot built by Dr. Wily. Ballade has great pride and believes he is the strongest robot, but after losing twice to Mega Man, he realizes his mistake and sacrifices his life to save Mega Man in the end of Mega Man IV, by self-destructing to open the way for Mega Man from Dr. Wily's station. Ballade attacks with a powerful explosive called the Ballade Cracker, and has a second form that increases his strength.
Ballade reappears inside the Wily Star in Mega Man V, and also appears as one of the downloadable bosses in Mega Man 10, alongside Enker and Punk. Ballade will also make an appearance in the upcoming game Rockman Online, as seen in the first teaser trailer.
Ballade appears in issue 20.

- "Ballade" is a one-movement musical piece with lyrical and dramatic narrative qualities, expanding the musical references so rife in the names of the classic series characters.
- Going by the character data given in Mega Man & Bass, Ballade is similar to Bass; they both have the same competitive mentality to be number 1, and dislike weak foes.
- Ballade does appear transformed in Mega Man 10, although it may be a random chance of seeing the change. There doesn't appear to be any difference between his two forms, however.
- The shape of Ballade's headgear is very similar to Quick Man's.
