Bar Waying (バーウェイン Bāwein) is a shutter barrier enemy in Mega Man X2, Mega Man Xtreme and Mega Man Xtreme 2. They appear on the Opening Stage on both Mega Man X2 and Mega Man Xtreme 2, but also briefly on Flame Stag's stage, Volcanic Zone.

Their barrier only blocks the way, and does not inflict any damage on the player. However, if the player gets smashed by them while they're closing, they are able to deal minimal damage.

They can be easily destroyed by either Silk Shot or Magnet Mine, but Spin Wheel is also a relevant option. As in the Volcanic Zone they need to be quickly destroyed, the Spin Wheel is the least recommended weakness since it takes two hits to destroy them - what changes on its charged version.

Drill Waying

Drill Waying (ドリルウェイン Doriru Wein) is like an improvement of the Bar Waying, and it's found in Mega Man X3. It tends to drill upward and then spiral its head back down. The head is the weakness, and like with Bar Waying, it must be destroyed in order for X to pass. These show up in both Tunnel Rhino and Neon Tiger's stages. It also appears in Mega Man Xtreme 2, where its head moves up and down and can shoot. In X3, the Frost Shield or Triad Thunder takes it out in one hit.
