Plant Barrier (プラントバリア Puranto Baria?) is Plant Man's Special Weapon. It is a barrier of condensed energy shaped like flower petals that spins around the user and protects him from some attacks.

Video game appearances

Mega Man 6

The Plant Barrier vanishes when hit by any attack, and Mega Man can't throw it. It is Tomahawk Man's weakness, and is also effective against the Rounder II, although Flame Blast and Power Mega Man are usually preferred as the Rounder II deals a large amount of damage on contact and the player cannot safely slide or jump over them.

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.

Mega Man: The Power Battle

The Plant Barrier can hit several times before vanishing, and the user can throw the shield at enemies. It is Dust Man's weakness.

Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters

The Plant Barrier can be obtained by the player that takes the Special Weapon Item dropped by Plant Man after defeating him in the "Search for Wily!" course. It works in the same way as its appearance in Mega Man: The Power Battle. Gyro Man is weak to this weapon.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

Plant Barrier appears as one of Mega Man's selectable custom moves, replacing his normal Down Special, Leaf Shield.

Capacity

Other media

Mega Man Megamix

In the manga, Plant Barrier scatters bits throughout the electromagnetic field surrounding Plant Man. The Copy Mega Man attempted to use Plant Barrier in his battle against the original Mega Man, but Plant Man tells Mega Man to charge in as it takes time for the barrier to set up, hitting the copy before he activates it.

Rockman 6

Unlike the game, Mega Man's Plant Barrier works like Plant Man's version and the arcade games. It is used by Mega Man to defend himself against Tomahawk Man's attacks and to attack him by throwing it. Plant Man's Plant Barrier is shaped like flowers instead of petals.

Trivia

  • Unlike other shield weapons, the Plant Barrier does not protect Mega Man from the Robot Master that is weak to it; Tomahawk Man's feathers and Silver Tomahawk go right through it.
