Protectoral is a shielded, flying enemy from Mega Man X8.

Protectorals are invulnerable to frontal attacks while their shield is down; however, they must lift it to fire their cannon, leaving them vulnerable for a short time. Repeated or guard breaking attacks can also be used to force the shield up temporarily. On Hard Mode, Protectorals will recover faster from guard breaking attacks. They are completely defenseless from behind, so one can wait for them to turn away before attacking.

They appear in the stages Noah's Park and Primrose.
