Low Gravity is a gimmick in Mega Man 5, found in Star Man's stage. It lowers the gravity of an entire level, allowing for higher jumps.
Low Gravity was first made available in the devkit for the original Make a Good Mega Man Level. Although no entry stages used it, it was used in the Wily stage Flashback Database for the battle against Zero, as well as Zero Soul in The Arena (though not in Make a Good Mega Man Level Remastered).
When placed in a stage, Low Gravity will permanently alter Mega Man's gravity for the duration of the level. By default, it lowers his gravity (allowing him to jump higher as if he were in water), but by changing the value of the gravitySet variable, it can be lowered further or even increased (giving him smaller jumps instead).
