In the Games
Mega Man 6
In Mega Man 6, the Centaur Flash is a screen-affecting weapon obtained by defeating Centaur Man. Although he uses it to freeze his opponent in time, the weapon acts as a simple screen-wipe when used by Mega Man, consuming 4 points of weapon energy per use to harm all enemies on the screen with a series of fast flashes. While the action does briefly stop during its animation, this has no useful effect, as Mega Man is stopped along with everything else.
Apart from being strong against Wind Man, who takes 4 damage from it per use, the Centaur Flash deals no damage at all against any other boss in the game. This makes it mostly suited against minor enemies, although it does break the falling rocks during the Power Piston boss fight and cannon balls fired by Tank CSII.
Centaur Flash is one of multiple weapons that damage all enemies on the screen. Others include:
- Rain Flush (Mega Man 4)
- Gravity Hold (Mega Man 5)
- Lightning Bolt (Mega Man & Bass)
- Tornado Blow (Mega Man 9)
- Although Centaur Man appears in the arcade game Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters, the Centaur Flash does not, likely due to its unengaging effect in a game with only boss fights. It is replaced by the Centaur Arrow.
