Mettaur (メットール Mettōru) is a common virus type in the Mega Man Battle Network series, and the only species to have a constant appearance, while other viruses were replaced or omitted. They wear small hard hats with crosses on them and wield a pick axe, which causes a shock wave when thrust into the ground. In the games, they move up and down the columns they are in, sending shockwaves at the player. While normal Mettaurs stand still while the other Mettaurs present attack, stronger variants hide in their helmets and are impervious to attacks (unless they come out of their helmet or are attacked by an attack that can pierce). In Mega Man Battle Network 3, a family of Mettaurs can be caught and brought to the Virus Breeder, where a special Battle Chip can be obtained from them; upon meeting certain conditions, the omega version can also be caught.

Battle Chips

The Mettaur family has basically two types of Battle Chips, one for attack and other for counterattack.

Shockwave

The Battle Chips Shock Wave (ショックウェーブ also written as Shockwave), Sonic Wave (ソニックウェーブ), Dyna Wave (ダイナウェーブ), are a non-elemental attack where the user swings a pick to send a shockwave forward. The shockwave can pierce some defenses, but as it moves in the ground, hole panels will stop them.

Big Wave, known as Great Wave (グレートウェーブ) in Japan, is a stronger version that cracks the panels it passes by. It only appears in Mega Man Battle Network 3, being obtained from Mettaur3 if MegaMan has Custom Style.

MetGuard

Met Guard (メットガード Metto Gādo), also known as Guard, is a Battle Chip that repels an enemy's attack as a shockwave attack, unless attacked by the enemy's body. For example, Guard cannot block Fishy's and Powie's attacks, as they directly hit the player rather than firing a projectile. In the first game there is a Battle Chip named Buster Guard (バスターガード) that allows the user to use Met Guard several times for 1 turn. In Mega Man Network Transmission, it has two variations from different enemies, the Shield Guard (シールドガード) dropped by Shield Attacker and Hi-Guard (ハイガード) dropped by Sniper Joe.

Met Guard chips are replaced by the Reflector (リフレクメット RifurekuMetto, roughly "ReflecMet" in Japan) family in the sixth game. It acts the same way, but instead of shockwaves, it releases a fast chain of explosions that aren't stopped by holes.
