"Giant Met Cannon"

This unnamed Met, nicknamed "Giant Met Cannon", is basically a giant version of the Metall Cannon that appears twice as a mid-boss in the Wily Battleship in Mega Man IV. The cannon is immune to attacks, the Met being its weak point. It constantly moves up and down, periodically stopping to attack by firing a large energy sphere. The second one can also fire homing missiles. It doesn't cause damage on contact, so Mega Man can safely stand on the cannon to quickly finish the Met with point blank attacks.
