|Mega Man using Plant Barrier.|
In Mega Man 6, the shield vanishes when hit and Mega Man can't throw it. In the fighting games Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters, the shield can hit several times before vanishing, and the user can throw the shield at enemies.
It is Tomahawk Man's weakness, and is also effective against the Rounder II, although Flame Blast is usually preferred as the Rounder II deals a large amount of damage on contact and the player cannot safely slide or jump over them.

Bosses weak against Plant Barrier
- Tomahawk Man: Mega Man 6
- Dust Man: Mega Man: The Power Battle
- Gyro Man: Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters
- Unlike the other shield weapons, the Plant Barrier does not protect Mega Man from the Robot Master that's weak to it -- Tomahawk Man's feathers and Silver Tomahawk go right through it.
- Unlike Skull Barrier, Plant Barrier won't vanish after hitting an invulnerable or shielded enemy. In fact, it will ignore shielding and cause heavy damage to boot, making the weapon an effective counter to the Shield Attacker GTR and Brown.
