Plantman Platforms were first made available in the devkit for the original Make a Good Mega Man Level, where they appeared in the entries The Quickening, Napalm Forest and Caves, and Spiky Meltdown, as well as the Wily stage Flashback Database.
Plantman Platforms returned in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2, where they appeared in 11 entries, as well as the Wily stages Unobtainium Mine and Reality Core, the Pit of Pits sub-levels "Forgotten Fortress", "Hot Mess", "I Have No Shame", "Spiky Meltdown?", and "Wood you please be careful?", and in Null and Void. They also appeared in the Make a Good Mega Man Level 3 Judge Application Level Space Crusade, and in the Make a Good Mega Man Level: Episode Zero stages Contra Base and Skyhigh Ridge.
Plantman Platforms hang in the air, and initially cannot be stood on. When hit by a weapon, the platform will open and become solid.
