Leaf Shield (リーフシールド Rīfu Shīrudo?) is Wood Man's power. It can be obtained after defeating Wood Man in Mega Man 2, Mega Man II, Mega Man: The Power Battle, and Super Adventure Rockman, and is one of the abilities that Mega Man can use in the Marvel vs. Capcom games. When used, the shield will stay on Mega Man as long as he stays still, but the instant he moves, the shield will fly off in the direction he moved in. Wood Man can be seen using the power in the Sega Saturn version of Mega Man 8, and it also appears in Mega Man 10 as an ability of the Weapons Archive.

Bosses Immune To Leaf Shield


The Leaf Shield is quite useful when used on the moving platforms in Crash Man's stage, as the Telly's will be destroyed upon making impact with the Leaf Shield; the same strategy is highly advised when dealing with Pipis in Air Man's stage and use of such a strategy may result in the getting of many powerups.

Other appearances

Marvel vs Capcom 

Mega Man can switch his current special weapon to the Leaf Shield by summoning Eddie. Unlike the way it functions in Mega Man 2, the shield will remain around Mega Man for roughly six seconds before fading away. It gives him super armor, allowing him to essentially block any one attack from his opponent; if Mega Man blocks while the shield is still present, it remains. It can also be launched at his opponent for a large number of combo hits. 

Mega Man (Ruby Spears)

Mega Man received this weapon in "The Strange Island of Dr. Wily". There, it functioned more like a traditional shield, being portrayed as a large metal leaf protruding from the Mega Buster.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

Mega Man gained the weapon from Wood Man upon defeating the latter. It was later used to destroy two of the Robot Masters, Bubble Man (as a last minute reaction upon being caught in a surprise attack by the Robot Master) and Air Man (as a last resort expending most of his energy reserves).





  • The Leaf Shield is the first shield weapon in the series.
  • The Leaf Shield is also used by Mega Man in the upcoming fighting game, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, functioning identically to its classic appearances.
    • One of Mega Man's alternate colors is also inspired by his color pallete when using the Leaf Shield.
