Minoan (ミノーン Minōn), also known as Fan Blade, is an enemy in Mega Man 4 that was originally a lawn mowing robot. They appear in Bright Man's Stage (and in Mega Man for the Game Gear), the second Dr. Cossack Stage, and the third Dr. Wily stage, among other areas. They stay up on a mount in the ceiling, and while hanging, the Minoan is invincible to all weapons. If Mega Man gets close or the mount it hangs in is destroyed, the Minoan will then drop down, open up, and spin toward him. Interestingly, not only are Minoans invincible to Dive Missile, the Special Weapon is unable to home in on it. Rain Flush can take it out with ease.
They also appeared in Bright Man's Stage and the Mobile Skull Castle in Mega Man IV.
