|Mega Man using Mega Ball.|
Mega Ball, known as Rock Ball (ロックボール Rokku Bōru?) in Japan, is a weapon from the game Mega Man 8 that Mega Man obtains in the opening stage. Mega Man drops a ball that can be kicked at enemies. Holding up on the control pad will make the ball go at a higher angle. However, it takes practice to kick it and hit well. The Mega Ball can also be bounced off of (even in midair) to reach hard-to-reach areas. It can also be used to reveal hidden items such as a 1-up in the beginning of Clown Man's stage. The boss Atetemino can only be hit with this weapon.
The Mega Ball is one of the three weapons used by Mega Man and Roll in the fighting games Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes. The weapon kept its Japanese name in the English versions of these games.
