Friender (フレンダー,Furendā?), also known as Hot Dog in the Mega Man 2 instruction manual for the U.S., is a blue dog-like robot from the Mega Man series that was originally created to protect forests, having a fire extinguisher on its tail, but Dr. Wily modified it to spit fire. It appears as a sub-boss in Wood Man's stage in Mega Man 2 and Mega Man II, and in the second Wily Tower stage in Mega Man: The Wily Wars.

Friender may be based on the blue dog from the anime Casshan (Casshern), which is also called Friender and can spit fire. The Velguarder and Karumuna Bash also bears resemblance to both Frienders. Rush may also be related to this Friender, as both can turn into a transport for the main character.
