Beat (ビート Bīto?) is a bird-type combat support robot from the Mega Man series built by Dr. Cossack for Mega Man to help him protect the world. He serves a support role by either attacking enemies or protecting Mega Man, depending on the game.

Appearances

  • In Mega Man 5, Mega Man 6 and Mega Man IV, Beat attacks enemies that appear on the path (he can not attack bosses in Mega Man 6). Unlike Rush and Eddie before him, his internal radar can not lock on to Mega Man from a distance, so he needs to rely on the signal of Plates to be able to fly to his aid.[1] Beat can appear without the need of collecting Plates in later games, suggesting that the issue was fixed in some way.
  • In Mega Man 7, Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10, Beat will appear when Mega Man falls into a pit and carries him for a while. The player must move to a safe area before Beat releases Mega Man, as he can not hold his weight for too long. Unlike in most games, where he uses weapon energy, the item can be used only four times and must be refilled in the shop after usage.
    • In Mega Man 7 the item is called Beat's Whistle. Mega Man must save Beat in an area hidden in the part with bees in Slash Man's stage (the Scorch Wheel can burn the trees to reveal the area) to be able to use him. He receives four Beat's Whistles after this and can buy more later in the shop.
    • In Mega Man 9 and 10, the item is called Beat Call (ビートコール Bīto Kōru?), and is available in the shop from the beginning by spending 50 screws in Mega Man 9. In Mega Man 10, one Beat Call costs 20 screws when playing with Mega Man and 30 screws with Proto Man.
    • In the ending of Mega Man 9, Beat sees Hornet Man watering a flower garden.
  • In Mega Man 8, he helps out in the sections were Mega Man uses Rush Jet. He can damage enemies that fly into him and dashes forward when Mega Man fires a charged shot.
  • In Super Adventure Rockman, Beat accompanies Mega Man throughout the game. He is often seen in cutscenes retrieving weapon chips from the defeated Robot Masters, and could communicate with Mega Man through what appears to be his own language, which solely takes the form of bird sounds.
  • In Rockman Strategy Beat is a member of Mega Man's party as he faces various Robot Masters and the alien robots led by Apollo.
Nova 2

  • In Otoranger, Beat combines with Rush, Eddie, and Tango to form the mecha Right Great.

Trivia

  • In the North American Mega Man 5 manual, it is said that both Dr. Cossack and Dr. Light were working on Beat before Dr. Light's kidnapping, and he is completed by Dr. Cossack during the game.
  • His saying, "Go on a diet, MegaMan," and his dislike of heavy cargo, may have something to do with his funny expression when he rescues Mega Man from a pit but is ridden for too long.
  • Beat would have appeared in Mega Man: The Power Battle, but was removed from the game before its release. However, his sprites remained in the game data, as he makes an appearance as a support unit in the sequel.[2]
  • It is unknown if Roll's car in the game Mega Man: Battle & Chase only has Beat's appearance (as all cars in the game can have their parts exchanged), or if it is a transformation like the Beat Plane from Marvel vs. Capcom (as the car has a sweat drop in Roll's ending, implying it has intelligence). In Hitoshi Ariga's manga Mega Man Gigamix, Beat stays inside the square in the forehead of the car.
