An item (アイテム aitemu?) is an object within the games that can be collected by the player's character that are often beneficial. Items have varying functions, like recovery and equipment, and some are needed to progress further into the story.

Recovery items

Life Energy (ライフエネルギー Raifu Enerugī?), also known as Energy Pellet and Power Capsule, is an item that recovers health. It usually comes in 2 sizes, small ( shou?) and large ( dai?). Some games have extra large (特大 tokudai?) versions of them that usually restore to full health. In the Mega Man ZX series, the larger ones can be sliced with a saber weapon to create smaller and different types of energy. The small ones traditionally restore between 2-4 units (depending of the game) of the player's health, while the big ones restore between 8-10 units.

Interestingly, in Mega Man 7, a giant Energy Pellet can be found in Spring Man's stage using Rush Search (in the area with a lighter star in the background). This giant Energy Pellet only appears in this stage and has made no later appearances in the original series.

The original Life Energy shows up during a side quest in Mega Man ZX Advent, being called a "Light Bulb," likely as a reference to the original Mega Man being solar powered.

Weapon Energy (武器エネルギー Buki Enerugī?), also known as Weapon Capsule, recovers the energy for Special Weapons. Like Life Energy, it usually comes in two sizes, small and large. They restore an equal amount of weapon energy as the same sized Life Energy items. In some games like Mega Man 8 and Mega Man X5, it also comes in extra large versions that restore full weapon energy.

In Mega Man ZX and Mega Man ZX Advent they are called Biometal Energy (ライブメタルエネルギー, Livemetal Energy in Japan), and the larger ones can be sliced with a saber weapon to create smaller and different types of energy.

Some extra lives
{{{nickname}}}
{{{number}}}
{{{numberb}}}
{{{sprite}}}

A 1-UP, also known as Extra Life, is an item present in all platform Mega Man games that grant an extra life to the player. The player can have a maximum of nine lives in most appearances, usually starting with two lives. However, when the number of lives says 0, dying once will trigger a game over, so 9 lives counts as 10 lives before a Game Over. The EX Item increases the amount of initial extra lives.

The extra life had various appearances, the first being a face of the player's character (Mega Man, Proto Man, Bass, and X) from the first Mega Man game to Mega Man 7, Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10, Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge to Mega Man V, Mega Man: The Wily Wars, Mega Man X, Mega Man X2 and Mega Man X3.

Later, the item changed to the helmet of the player's character (the four previously mentioned characters, Zero, and Vile) in Mega Man 8, Mega Man & Bass, Rockman & Forte: Mirai Kara no Chousensha, Mega Man X4 to X7 (glowing into an energy sphere), Mega Man Xtreme, Mega Man Xtreme 2, and Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. The item is named Spare Body (スペアボディー?) in Mega Man & Bass and Rockman & Forte: Mirai Kara no Chousensha.

In Mega Man: Powered Up, it is named Stock Heart (ストックハート?) and has the shape of a heart. In Mega Man X8, extra lives are Retry Chips. In Mega Man Network Transmission, they appear as Backup Chips (バックアップチップ? "BckupChp"). MegaMan can only carry two at the start, but can increase the maximum to the traditional nine.

In the Mega Man Zero series, the item is called Z Panel (Zパネル?), and like its name, it has the shape of a "Z". The Z Panel has two alternate appearances in Mega Man Zero 3, which can be set by using the Mod Cards #8 or #59. In the Mega Man ZX series, the 1UP Item has the shape of a "ZX" in Mega Man ZX and an "A" in Mega Man ZX Advent.

Life Up (ライフアップ Raifu Appu?) is an item that increases the maximum health of the player by 2 units onto the life bar of whichever character obtains them. It first appears in Mega Man X, where it was also known as a Heart Tank. One Life Up can be found in each of the eight stages, and some games (Mega Man X5 through Mega Man X8) allow the player to produce or find a limited amount of this item.

Absent from the Mega Man Zero series due to the Cyber-elf system, they reappeared in the Mega Man ZX series. Here, only four Life Ups are available in each game, but they gave double the health they previously did to compensate.

Energy Up

Energy Up (エネルギーアップ?), also known as Weapon Up (ウェポンアップ?), increases the maximum weapon capacity of whichever character obtains them. It first appears in Mega Man X5 as an item that can be created. In Mega Man X6 and Mega Man X7 they are obtained from some Rescuable Reploids, and in Mega Man X7 one is obtained by the character that gives the finishing blow against a boss. In Mega Man X8 they must be bought as Chips.

In Mega Man ZX Advent, the BM Upgrade increases the Biometal gauge. There are four of them, located in the Oil Field, Highway, Quarry, and Bio Lab.

Tanks

Main article: Tank

Tank, known as Can in Japan, is a recovery item from the original series that can be carried by the player to be used when needed. The first type to appear was the Energy Tank (E Tank) in Mega Man 2, which replenishes a player's life energy. The player can usually carry several of those at once, up to a maximum of four or nine, depending of the game.

Other versions include the Weapon Tank, which replenishes one of the player's Special Weapons; the Super Tank, which replenishes a player's life and the energy of all special weapons; the Mystery Tank, which acts like the S Tank and has the bonus effect of turning all on-screen foes into Extra Lives if used while the player's character is at full health and all weapons have full energy. There are more variants, like Mini E Tanks and ? Cans.

E Tank and W Tank also appear in the Mega Man ZX series.

Sub Tank

Main article: Sub Tank

The Sub Tank is an item similar to the E Tank, but instead of being used once, it remains with the player and can be refilled after usage, usually by picking up more life energy when the player's life energy bar is already full. It appears in the Mega Man X, Zero and ZX series. In Mega Man X4, X5, and X6, the tanks fill with energy regardless of whether the player's health is full at the time a Life Energy capsule is obtained. Also depending on the game, using a Sub Tank may drain all of its saved energy despite the player having lost only a couple of units worth.

Yashichi

Main article: Yashichi

Yashichi is a recovery item that refills the health and the energy of all weapons. In Mega Man it can be found in the last stage, and in Mega Man 8 it is given by the Rush Charger. It is also commonly seen on Easy Mode in Mega Man 10.

Piece of Scrap

MM9ItemA

"Piece of Scrap" is an item from Mega Man 9 dropped by the fourth of the eight bosses defeated. By analyzing it, Auto sees the robot's product code and discovers its period of use had expired and was scheduled to be scrapped.

Memory Circuit Board

MM9ItemB

The "Memory Circuit Board" is an item from Mega Man 9 dropped by the last of the eight bosses defeated. By playing back the robot's memory, Mega Man, Roll, and Auto see why Dr. Light's robots went crazy and discover that Dr. Wily was responsible. Dr. Wily steals the evidence and Mega Man goes after him in his Wily Castle, obtaining the board back after destroying the Wily Capsule.

Zero's parts

ZeroHeadParts
ZeroBodyParts
ZeroLegParts

Zero's parts (ゼロのパーツ Zero no pātsu?) are three parts of Zero's body that are with the X-Hunters in Mega Man X2. After defeating two bosses from the stage select screen, the three X-Hunters will challenge X to collect the parts from them, each moving around the stages with one part. Defeating the X-Hunters to retrieve the parts is optional.

If all three parts are collected, Zero will be revived by Dr. Cain. If X doesn't collect all of the parts, the X-Hunters will invade the Maverick Hunter Base and steal Zero's control chip and any parts X had collected, reviving Zero as a Maverick that fights against X in the last stage.

Shock Guard

Shock Guard (ショックガード?) is an item that protects the user from spikes. However, if the user gets crushed by moving spikes, he will still die. They can be purchased from the shops from Mega Man & Bass, Rockman and Forte: Mirai Kara no Chousensha, Mega Man 9, and Mega Man 10.

In Mega Man X8, the Shock Guard returns as the Prickle Barrier and must be purchased in the R&D Lab. Like Shock Guard, it can only protect the player from spikes once - not once per character, but once per use. If the player uses it by stepping in the spikes, his character's health will be reduced to 1 and the character will instantly die if the player steps on spikes again.
