Dharma (ダーマ Dāma) is a virus from Mega Man Battle Network 4 and Rockman.EXE 4.5 Real Operation. It shoots hockey pucks across the field. The pucks bounce off in a manner that can be difficult to predict. It will pause before it launches hockey pucks. Higher level variants can lay mines on the target's side of the field.
Virus Stats by Game
Air Hockey (エアホッケー), shortened as AirHoc in-game, is the Battle Chip family from the Dharma viruses. The user launches a large hockey puck that moves diagonally, reflecting on the sides of the opponent area many times before disappearing. It can break through any obstacles and hits multiple times, but it will fall on holes present in the field.
As it only moves diagonally, depending of the user's position and considering the Panels weren't changed, it will either move in three diagonal panels (from top left to bottom right or top right to bottom left) or circle four panels from the area.
Combining three Air Hockey Battle Chips with their codes in alphabetical order results in the Program Advance Pit Hockey, a faster and stronger Air Hockey that lasts longer.
