Tako Trash (タコトラッシュ Tako Torasshu) is the boss of the second Wily Stage of Mega Man 4. It sends out large exploding balls and spits flames. The green light on its forehead is its weak spot, and the best weapon to use against it is Ring Boomerang.

*For the Mega Buster and Pharaoh Shot, the first digit is when the weapon is fired normally and the second is when it is fully charged.

*For Tako Trash, Skull Barrier does not inflict any damage against it under normal circumstances, but a glitch can occur when a Drill Bomb hits it first, then following up with Skull Barrier, inflicting 1 unit of damage against it thereafter.


  • "Tako" means octopus in Japanese.
  • Tako Trash is one of four bosses immune to Pharaoh Shot.  The other three are Skull Man, the Cossack Catcher, and the second form of the Wily Machine.
  • If Tako Trash is hit by Drill Bomb, Mega Man will be able to touch it without taking damage, his body appearing to have invisible destructible blocks. This glitch can be used to easily defeat it from his back, which becomes a safe spot.
