Shield Attacker GTR[1] is an enemy appearing in Mega Man 6. It is a flying drone mostly made up of a tall shield, resembling the standard Shield Attacker in appearance and behaviour, but with small spikes attached to the front.

In the Games

Mega Man 6

In-game sprite.

In Mega Man 6, Shield Attacker GTRs are found in the Frozen Island (Blizzard Man) and Restricted Area (Tomahawk Man) stages, and reappear in Mr. X stage 4 and Dr. Wily stage 2. They patrol an area that extends to either roughly a screen's width or from wall to wall, flying back and forth within it and taking a short time to turn around at the end. Due to their massive shield, they are completely invincible to attacks from the front, but can be attacked freely from behind. Their tendency to be placed slightly above the ground often makes it possible for Mega Man to slide under them.

Despite the added spikes, Shield Attacker GTR deals no more damage than the original Shield Attacker, and also shares its 4 hit points, making it weaker than the previous game's New Shield Attacker.

Official Data

Shield Attacker GTR appears under "Mega Man 6" in the Database in Mega Man Legacy Collection.

An improved version of Shield Attacker. Attacks from the front are useless, so maybe it'd be best to jump over or slide under it?
