Dust Crusher (ダストクラッシャー Dasuto Kurasshā), also known as Dust Crasher in Mega Man: The Power Battle, is Dust Man's special weapon. It takes the form of a bomb encased in a ball of scrap metal, that explodes and splits into four pieces of shrapnel (diagonally) when it hits something solid.

Dust Crusher is Skull Man's weakness, but Skull Man is immune to it when his Skull Barrier is up. It is also the weakness of the Square Machine and Cossack Catcher, and can deal a moderate amount of damage against Dive Man.

Mega Man getting Dust Crusher in the cartoon show

Mega Man uses Dust Crusher in episode 5 of the Mega Man animated series. However, it was radically changed from the version used in the games- instead of being a thrown weapon, it took the form of the Vacuum on Dust Man's head attaching to the shrunken Mega Man's back, giving him the power to push and pull things towards him.
