Pickman (Mega Man 11)

Picklemen return in Mega Man 11, now known as Pickmen.  They behave almost exactly as they did in Mega Man 1.  There's also a new type of Pickman that's armed with a flame cannon and is able to shoot fireballs with it.  When this type of Pickman is destroyed, the barrel he was carrying will drop to the ground and then fling itself towards Mega Man, exploding on impact.

Pickman Digger

Pickman Digger is a miniboss in Mega Man 11, encountered in Impact Man's stage.  It's a Pickman piloting a bulldozer that's shaped like a Met's helmet.  It can only be damaged by shooting its cockpit.  It attacks by rolling back and forth, rolling boulders, dumping dirt on Mega Man, and spinning its arm around to try and sideswipe Mega Man.  When it's taken some damage, it will also start summoning Missile Cones to launch even more projectiles at Mega Man.
