Rolling Cutter (ローリングカッター Rōringu Kattā?) is Cut Man's special weapon. It takes the form of a large pair of extremely sharp scissor blades that are thrown like boomerangs, flying in front of Mega Man in a teardrop-shaped pattern, before returning to him. This weapon is useful against Spines, as the regular arm cannon has no effect on them, except to stun them momentarily. In Mega Man Powered Up, it is one of the few weapons which can go through walls, others being the Ice Slasher and Super Arm.

Mega Man uses the Rolling Cutter in the Mega Man animated series. When obtaining the weapon in the first episode, it has a normal design, but in a later episode it has the shape of Cut Man's head.

What was also noticeable about the cutters when used by Mega Man, was that they seemed to have homing capabilities—this was demonstrated in the first episode, when they chased Cut Man across almost the entire airstrip, only stopping when Cut Man escapes in the Skullker, and even then following him inside.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

Mega Man obtains the Rolling Cutter in issue 2 and uses it against Elec Man in issue 3.
