|Sprite of Mega Man equipped with Screw Crusher.|
Screw Crusher (スクリュークラッシャー Sukuryū Kurasshā?) is Punk's Special Weapon that first appears in Mega Man III. When equipped, Mega Man throws a saw that moves up for a while and then loops down. It is imperative in the battle against the Wily Machine's second form, as it is the only weapon that will harm it. It does considerable damage, and can be used several times as it doesn't use much energy. However only one can be on the screen at a time.
Screw Crusher can also be obtained in Mega Man 10, Mega Man being the only playable character able to use it. In this game Mega Man can have up to four onscreen at a time, and it is most effective against Ballade, Pump Man, Chill Man, and the Weapons Archive's data of Ring Man and Tornado Man. It can also be used to disarm some enemy shields when fired fast enough.
