Milk is one of the ridiculous "Robot Masters" from the fangame Mega Man: Square Root of Negative One, created by MaGMML creator SnoruntPyro. It appears as a tier boss in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2, at the end of Tier 1, the Ruined Simulation. Unlike most tier bosses, Milk does not strictly gain new moves - instead, it uses a new pattern entirely, while losing some of its stupider, more useless moves from its home game.
Mega Man: Square Root of Negative One
Milk originally appears in this game as one of the eight Robot Masters. Its stage is a cyan recolor of Heat Man's stage, with gimmicks such as Yoku Blocks and pills that drain the player's health unless they are inside pools of milk. The fight against Milk itself is mostly an RNG-determined fight, though the incoming attack is telegraphed by how many particles come out of Milk. Milk will use attacks like spraying "milk pillars" (a recolor of Heat Man's flame pillars), shooting Cheerios in various ways, and spamming its Special Weapon, Milk Spray.
Milk is weak to the Illuminati Tape, Illuminati's weapon, and will give Milk Spray (playing as Mega Man) or Milk Tornado (playing as raocow) once defeated. Both weapons focus on spamming low damage projectiles. The weapons are Hello's weaknesses.
Milk appears at the end of Tier 1, in an enclosed shrine to our lord and savior, the Up'n'Down. On entering the room, Milk has the appearance of various devkit bosses glitching out, with Mega Man commenting on it, before it explodes into its true form. It lets out a horrific battle cry of "GNEURSCH!", before revealing itself as hostile and battling Mega Man.
Milk will start attacking using rings which it fires in a cross pattern or in bursts of three rings at the same time on an angle. It will then summon many jets that shoot a stream of milk out (acting identically to Water Blocks), before firing a ring burst. It will then fire a rainbow ring which will bounce around the arena while Milk is constantly jumping, trying to deal contact damage while Mega Man tries to avoid the ring. Finally, Milk fires a burst of rapid fire rings while sticking to the roof then slides to the other side and fires three Milk Sprays to the direction that Mega Man was while Milk was sliding. The pattern then repeats.
After being defeated, Milk can be found as an NPC inside the Chateau Chevaleresque.
(Various devkit bosses glitch and explode)
Mega Man: Sure. There may be 'some' bugs. What is going on here even?
Mega Man: WHAT?!
Milk makes a surprise cameo during the end credits. It is seen exiting out of a Wargate that had opened up in Dr. Cossack's Lab, where it quickly pursues Toad Man, who had also come out of the Wargate.
|Other Notes||The rainbow ring, while it can't be destroyed, can be used to gain health with the Grab Buster.|
- "YOU... YOU KILL BUTTER NEZUMI... REVENGE..."
Any time after defeating Butter Nezumi, fighting Milk in Tier 1 (but not in the Arena or Boss Gallery) will trigger a special event where Milk transforms into Strawberry Milk, a souped up version of the original boss. The basic pattern is the same, but all attacks have more projectiles and are more difficult to dodge.
Once Mega Man goes into the Tier 1 boss arena after meeting the conditions for this boss, Milk, not glitching out this time, will let out a blood curdling roar, before screaming that it must take revenge for Butter Nezumi's defeat. It then jumps up into the air, and in a blinding flash, transforms into Strawberry Milk.
Besides the flavor change, Strawberry Milk features enhanced versions of all of its attacks. Strawberry Milk will fire rings in a spread pattern, covering more space in the arena. It also fires a two ring burst thrice in an angle. The rainbow ring, instead of bouncing, explodes into four rainbow rings, which will each also explode into four rings. The burst of rapid fire rings while sticking to the roof is also improved, covering more space, but the slide to the other side and the three Milk Sprays attack remains the same.
The strategy is exactly the same as when fighting regular Milk, with the notable difference that now its ring projectiles can be destroyed, which will help against its ring burst attacks. The weapon damage table is identical to that of normal Milk, meaning that Grab Buster remains its primary weakness.
(Milk appears and screeches)
Milk: YOU... YOU KILL BUTTER NEZUMI... REVENGE...
Milk: POWER UP...
(Milk jumps into the air and turns into Strawberry Milk)
Strawberry Milk: GNEURSCH! }}
- Milk emits the same scream as the Mecha Dragon.
- Milk's cry of "GNEURSCH" is taken from the famous Bill Wurtz video "history of the entire world, i guess".
- Notably, this is misspelled from how it is in the video; the original video spelled it as "gneurshk".
