Blizzard Attack (ブリザードアタック Burizādo Atakku) is Blizzard Man's Special Weapon in Mega Man 6. When used by Mega Man, four snowflakes will materialize behind him and be released in the direction he is facing—two straight forward, one diagonally upward, and one diagonally downward. Because the snowflakes appear behind Mega Man, it can be useful for setting a trap for enemies.
Blizzard Attack's strength is equal to that of two uncharged Mega Buster shots, excluding strengths and weaknesses. It can defeat fire-based enemies such as Fire Tellies and Fire Boys instantly, however it will inflict minimal damage against other ice-themed robots, like Au-Aus. Brain Breaks are instantly destroyed when struck without having it go though its attacking phase. Blizzard Attack can also destroy certain enemies that are otherwise invulnerable, such as Cyber Gabyoall.
One Blizzard Attack uses three Weapon Energy units, and can still be used if less than three units remain—it can be used ten times with a full Weapon Energy gauge.
Blizzard Attack is Plant Man's weakness, and while it cannot penetrate his Plant Barrier, it will inflict four units of damage against him. Metonger Z will take three units of damage from it, and Rounder 2 takes 2. Blizzard Attack inflicts only 1 unit of damage against all other bosses, but is a useful substitute for Silver Tomahawk against the Power Piston.
