Mega Man IV', known in Japan as Rockman World 4 (ロックマンワールド4, Rokkuman Wārudo Fō) is the fourth Game Boy series game in the Classic era of the Mega Man series, developed by Minakuchi Engineering and published by Capcom for the Game Boy in 1993.
Like its predecessors, the game reimagines content from the NES games, reusing four bosses each from Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5. Unlike the previous games, it has a much more loose structure, putting emphasis on its own story, side stages, and new boss character Ballade moreso than the returning content. It also makes tweaks to the gameplay beyond what the NES games contained, notably adding recoil to Mega Man's charged Mega Buster shots and introducing an item shop in Dr. Light's lab for the first time, a concept that would become a mainstay of later Classic era games.
The game is the last Game Boy series game to reuse content from the NES games, with its successor, Mega Man V, featuring a fully new cast of bosses instead.
