Game Info

Curlinger[1] is an enemy appearing in Mega Man 6. It is a small, circular robot based on a curling stone and consequently found as an obstacle in icy settings.

In the Games

Mega Man 6

in-game sprite.

In Mega Man 6, Curlingers first appear in the Frozen Island (Blizzard Man) stage and do not reappear until the beginning of Wily stage 2, the last regular stage of the game. They are always placed on slippery floors and initially begin to slide towards Mega Man, starting out slow, but quickly accelerating to be slightly faster than his walking speed. Once in motion, the Curlinger cannot turn around at will, but will rebound off walls and fall straight down if it goes past the edge of a platform.

Three regular shots or a charged shot from the Mega Buster are enough to take them out. Alternatively, a fully charged punch from Power Mega Man can knock them back, which not only destroys the Curlinger once it touches something but also deals 3 damage to any other enemy it collides with.

Official Data

Curlinger appears under "Mega Man 6" in the Database in Mega Man Legacy Collection.

A surprise attack mecha that can adapt to any environment. The sound it makes when it rebounds off a wall is kind of nice, no?
