Eddie (also known as Fliptop) is a character in the series that debuted in Mega Man 4. He is a support robot created by Dr. Light who, ever since he was introduced, has appeared throughout stages to give Mega Man a random drop. This makes his effectiveness vary, as sometimes he can give you something extraordinary (like an E-Tank), but other times he can give you something rather minor (like weapon energy). Some suspect that Eddie is secretly evil, though there is currently little evidence to support this.
MaGMML Series Appearances
Eddie first appears in the original game, running a secret shop in the basement of Dr. Light's lab. He makes no other appearances in the game otherwise.
In the second game, he takes on his role he has from the official games and dispenses items in various levels. Like in the classic games, his effectiveness varies. Furthermore, he appears in every fifth room of The Pit of Pits, and can be upgraded to appear in every other room. He will also appear in the battle against Seven Force, giving the player a large health capsule between each Force.
Eddie can be killed off with use of the Slash Claw (though not the Force Beam). This causes him to drop three pickups. After being killed off, he will stop appearing in levels until you enter the shop or buy the Eddie upgrade in The Pit of Pits. He will still help with Seven Force, however.
If the player manages to get 9999 bolts and goes to the shop, Eddie will have special dialog.
