In the Games
Mega Man 5
In Mega Man 5, Pukapuckers appear only in Crystal Man's stage, all in the early sections. The torso walks left and right, either to the edge of a platform or within a set range, while the head stays directly above it and floats up and down.
If Mega Man opts to destroy the body first, the head will stay behind and bounce around like a ball, starting in the direction it was last facing. If he destroys the head, however, both the head and body will disappear.
Mega Man IV
Pukapuckers return in Mega Man IV, once again appearing in that game's version of Crystal Man's stage, but also in Dr. Wily stage 2 (Dr. Wily's spaceship). They behave similarly, but are slower than they originally were, in exchange for dealing an extra point of damage when touched.
|It's always bounding about, so it often ends up attacking allies. Destroying the head will cause the body to explode.|

Pukapucker is one of several Classic era enemies whose head can separate if the body is destroyed.
- Crazy Razy (Mega Man) - Runs and shoots; head flies around.
- Spring Face Bomb (Mega Man 6) - Bounces around; head pops off and explodes.
- Bunby Tank (Mega Man 7) - Drives left and right; head flies around as a Bunby Top.
- Bunby Tank DX (Mega Man 8 and Mega Man & Bass) - A Bunby Tank that shoots. Head flies around as a Bunby Top DX.
- The lower part of Pukapucker looks very similar to that of Nobita, a different enemy in Mega Man 5 with an extendable neck and similarly limited walking range.
