Centaur Flash, also known as Kentauros Flash (ケンタウロスフラッシュ Kentaurosu Furasshu) in Japan, is Centaur Man's Special Weapon from Mega Man 6. When used by Centaur Man, he creates a dimensional distortion in a flash of light that freezes Mega Man in place, much like Time Stopper and Flash Stopper from two previous games.
When Mega Man is equipped with Centaur Flash, unlike the version used by Centaur Man, it can actually be used to damage and strike all enemies on the screen, also hitting destroyable projectiles and ignoring the defenses of enemies like Shield Attacker GTR and Ben K. One Centaur Flash uses 4 units of the weapon energy, and it can be used 7 times with a full weapon energy gauge. Caution must be taken when using Centaur Flash as it briefly freezes Mega Man in place, which could be deadly if used while jumping over pits.
Centaur Flash is Wind Man's weakness, and the only boss in the Mega Man 6 that takes damage from it. Centaur Flash inflicts 4 units of damage against him, destroying him in seven hits.
Centuar Flash is the only weapon in Mega Man 6 that deals damage to only one boss - even Plant Barrier deals damage to all of the fortress bosses.
