L. Knuckle (エル・ナックル Eru ・ Nakkuru) and R. Knuckle (アール・ナックル Āru ・ Nakkuru) are two giant knuckle bosses from Mega Man V fought in the Wily Star before Dr. Wily. Mega Man first fights against the left knuckle, which appears from the right and moves above the screen. L. Knuckle tries to punch Mega Man, causing the floor to shake. Its weak points are its eyes. After Mega Man defeats it, the right knuckle appears. R. Knuckle has the same attacks as L. Knuckle, but it moves faster and can also attack with homing missiles and catch Mega Man. They are weak to Salt Water, and the player can hit them easier if it is used directly. But it won't be enough to dispatch both Knuckles, so consider using the Grab Buster on the R. Knuckle to restore lost energy on the first battle and decently damage it.
