Mega Ball, known as Rock Ball (ロックボール, Rokku Bōru?) in Japan, is a weapon from the game Mega Man 8 that Mega Man obtains in the opening stage. Mega Man drops a ball that can be kicked at enemies. Holding up on the control pad will make the ball go at a higher angle. However, it takes practice to kick it and hit well. The Mega Ball can also be bounced off of (even in midair) to reach hard-to-reach areas. It can also be used to reveal hidden items such as a 1-up in the beginning of Clown Man's stage. The boss Atetemino can only be hit with this weapon.
