Eddie (エディ Edi), also known as Eddy and Flip-Top, is an item transportation robot within the Mega Man series. He made his first appearance in Mega Man 4.

Eddie was created by Dr. Light to carry items for Mega Man. (According to U.S. game manuals, Dr. Light built him as his personal cybernetic suitcase.) He is equipped with a material transfer unit that allows him to relay an unlimited amount of items from Dr. Light's Laboratory, but as Dr. Wily (using Dr. Cossack) attacked while he was still under construction, Eddie is sent incomplete to assist Mega Man in the battle and is unable to choose items, giving them randomly. Like Rush, Eddie is equipped with a sensor that identifies Mega Man's exact location. The sensor allows him to appear by Mega Man’s side instantly whenever he is needed.[1] He has a jet engine that allows him to fly, while in Mega Man 11 he flies with a propeller.

Video game appearances

As a support

From Mega Man 4 to Mega Man 6 and Mega Man III to Mega Man V, Eddie appears in a section of some stages to help Mega Man, giving a random recovery item, much like a ? Can or an Item Present. Items dropped by Eddie will not disappear until they are taken. If the item isn't taken and the player is able to leave and return to the area with Eddie, Eddie will reappear and give other item, allowing the player to select the item.

In Mega Man 5, for some reason, Eddie could not be retrieved after the events from the fourth game, but he still functions and reappears to assist Mega Man.[2]

In Mega Man 8, Eddie is one of the assistants that can appear to help Mega Man in the Rush Jet sections from Tengu Man's stage and the second Wily Tower stage. He attacks by throwing bombs from his head.

In Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters, if the player loses half of his energy during a battle, Eddie appears to give an item that calls a support robot. Rush will appear when the item is taken by Mega Man, Treble appears for Bass, and Beat for Proto Man or Duo.


  • In Mega Man IV, Eddie appears in the lower path from Crystal Man's stage.

As an item

In Mega Man & Bass, Rockman & Forte: Mirai Kara no Chōsensha, Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10, and Mega Man 11, Eddie can be bought as an item by Mega Man in the item shop, called Eddie Call (エディコール) in such games. He costs 150, 150, 50 and 10 Screws, respectively. When the item is used, Eddie will appear and drop many healing items for Mega Man to pick up. This version works exactly as Rush Question from Mega Man 8.

Minor appearances

  • In Mega Man 7, Eddie appears with Auto inside Big Eddie.
  • In Mega Man: Battle & Chase, Eddie appears only in the loading screen together with Auto, both racing on cars. Player 2 can make Eddie's car move faster.
  • In the Navi Mode of the Rockman Complete Works games, Eddie and Beat point recommended directions to the player.
  • In Mega Man X DiVE, Eddie appears as Roll's second active skill. Additionally, multiple Eddies with different colors are shown in Daily Mission (red, yellow, blue, green, and grey), Story and Coop modes (red, blue, and grey), as well as Boss Challenge (red, yellow, blue, and green) to provide various items to player by achievement progress.

Dr.ワイリーとの戦いにそなえライト博士が開発したアイテム運びロボット。 開発終了間際にDr.ワイリーが攻めてきたので未完成のまま出動した。

Translation: An item-carrying robot developed by Dr. Right in preparation for the battle against Dr. Wily. Dr. Wily attacked just as the development was about to finish, so the robot was deployed without being completed.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Trophy

This support robot first appeared in Mega Man 4. He'd pop up every now and then, flip his head open, and reveal a helpful item. The item is picked by random, but... hey, at least he's offering to help! In Mega Man 7, there's a giant spaceship modeled after him called Big Eddie, where Mega Man can trade for items.

Other Media

Mega Man (Ruby-Spears)

Eddie in the Mega Man animated series

"Don't forget your energy cans, MegaMan"
―Eddie, The Beginning

Eddie has several appearances in Ruby Spear's Mega Man animated series, where he was voiced by Scott McNeil. His main role is to give Energy Cans to Mega Man when his energy is low, being able to store up to five of them in his head at once. In the cartoon, Eddie's color scheme was changed from red to green and he also received a small height increase in addition to a more conical-shaped head.

Mega Man: Upon a Star

Eddie is a video game character that comes out from the TV a few times to help Mega Man recover.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

Eddie first appeared in one panel from issue 20. In the Worlds Collide crossover he supplied Mega Man with a replacement chip for his Mega Buster (as Sonic had used his super-speed to steal the chip from him to disable his weapon), as well as an Energy Tank to refill his reserves before resuming his match with Sonic in his dimension.

Eddie eventually made his formal debut in issue 37, where he was seen being worked on by Auto while Dr. Wily was privately admitting that he was luring Mega Man and company into a trap. Eddie is completed and activated in issue 53, just in time to assist Mega Man against Dr. Cossack and his robots.

Mega Man (Dreamwave Productions)

Eddie only appeared in two panels, the first being inside Dr. Light's limousine in the first issue, and the second being worked on by Dr. Light in the fourth issue, where Light mentions that the robot will be able to "make the finest coffee this side of Seattle".

Mega Man Megamix

Eddie doesn't have an active role in the manga, usually only having minor appearances. He was created by Dr. Light as an item transport robot to assist Mega Man, but as he was rushed out to assist him in a time of need, his Item Selection function is not as refined as it could have been. Still, Eddie manages to play an important role outside of battle as well by acting as a rice cooker for Dr. Light's household. He transmitted to Dr. Light the events that Tango observed in "The Strongest Enemy to Date", Light not knowing who sent the footage.

Mega Man Through the Ages

Eddie appears under the 1992 banner, where he provides Mega Man with a 30th Icon containing key art and footage for Mega Man 5.

Other appearances

Eddie also appeared in the Rockman manga series, Rockman 8, Rockman & Forte, and Rockman 4Koma Dai Koushin. In most of those, Eddie has a very small role or a brief appearance, the shortest being in only one panel from the Rockman & Forte manga, where Roll uses him as a rice cooker.



  • In the Ruby-Spears cartoon, Eddie's voice is nearly identical to that of Waspinator of Beast Wars, another character voiced by Scott McNeil. At one point in episode 1, he even speaks in third-person while Mega Man is being repaired, a common trait of Waspinator's dialogue.
  • Eddie has his own foil, which resembles him but has the opposite purpose. Rather than providing items like their good counterpart, the Anti-Eddies steal things.
