The Super Arm Block is a gimmick from the original Mega Man. It is a large block that can be picked up and thrown with the Super Arm, both as a means of clearing blockades and dealing damage with the weapon.

Super Arm Blocks were first added to Make a Good 24 Hour Mega Man Level, where they appeared in Breaking Ground and all three Wily stages.

Behavior[edit]

When Mega Man stands next to a Super Arm Block while equipped with the Super Arm, it will start flashing. Pressing the fire button at this point will cause him to pick it up. They are invisible by default, but when a Super Arm Block object is placed over a set of tiles, it will take on their appearance. If stretched over solid terrain, a Super Arm Block will turn the areas it covers into blocks that can be picked up and thrown. They can also hide items underneath them, making them inaccessible without clearing the way first.

The tile layer a Super Arm Block looks for when stretched over tiles can be changed via setting the "layer" variable in a Super Arm Block object's creation code.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Mega Man, shooting a Super Arm Block with the Thunder Beam will cause it to shatter as if it had been thrown. However, this behaviour is currently absent in the Megamix Engine.
