|Mega Man with the Plant Barrier equipped.|
The Plant Barrier (プラントバリア Puranto Baria) is Plant Man's Special Weapon from Mega Man 6. It is a barrier of condensed energy shaped like flower petals that spins around the user. The barrier can protect Mega Man from one attack before it dissipates. Perhaps to make up for this, it deals four points of damage to most enemies (slightly more damage than a fully-charged Mega Buster shot).
The Plant Barrier is one of the weapons to appear in the Megamix Engine, as an example of a shield weapon. It is just as frail as it was in Mega Man 6, but also keeps its large damage output. Against Aquatic enemies, it does six points of damage, but only deals two points to Bird enemies, and one point to Fire enemies.
