Bubukan (ブブカン Bubukan) is a pole vaulter robot enemy in Mega Man 3. They were originally created by Dr. Light to participate in the Robot Olympics. Bubukans pole vault over Mega Man and then run back. The base of their pole vault is invulnerable to attack and shields them while they charge Mega Man. The pole vault can be destroyed once the Bubukan dismount. Bubukans appear in Snake Man's stage and Needle Man's revisited Doc Robot stage in Mega Man 3 and the third Wily Tower stage in Mega Man: The Wily Wars.
