Types of Tellys


Telly is a security robot with camera eyes from Mega Man 2 that looks like a spinning can. They mostly appear in Crash Man's stage (in both Mega Man 2 and Mega Man II), Heat Man's stage, and the first and fourth sections of Dr. Wily's castle. They especially appear near the platforms on tracks, where they can knock Mega Man off. Using the Leaf Shield on the track platforms will keep Mega Man safe.

Fire Telly

Fire Telly (ファイアーテリー Faiā Terī) is an upgrade of the original Telly that appears in Mega Man 6. They take the form of orange-colored Tellies with flamethrowers attached to their undersides, and appear mainly in Flame Man's stage, the third section of Mr. X's stage, and first part of the first section of Dr. Wily's stage. However, it is in Flame Man's stage that they are a real threat. They will often use their flamethrowers to drop fireballs into the oil pools, igniting them and turning them into raging infernos. If Mega Man touches the fire, which is much hotter than standard fire due to the burning oil, he will instantly die, as though he landed on spikes.

Big Telly

Big Telly (ビッグテリー Biggu Terī) appear in Mega Man 8 in Grenade Man's stage, Frost Man's stage, and the first stage of Wily Tower. In Mega Man 8, they will drop several exploding bombs as they pass by. In Mega Man & Bass, they drop incendiary bombs in Burner Man's stage.

Telly R

Telly R (テリーR) is the original Telly with minor modifications. It appears in Mega Man 8 in Tengu Man and Sword Man's stages. It also appears in Mega Man & Bass and is found in Tengu Man's stage, Dynamo Man's stage and King Stage 1.
