Pipi (ピピ Pipi) is a robotic bird designed for aerial surveillance from Mega Man 2 that drops egg-shaped capsules filled with small Pipis. The Metal Blade is the most useful weapon to use against them as Mega Man can aim it upward or diagonally and destroy the Pipi preventing it from releasing the Copipi's, or, failing that, kill multiple Copipis with each Metal Blade, which often result in many energy pickups. As Pipis never stop appearing in the areas they are present, Mega Man can stand still with the Leaf Shield to destroy the Copipis and gather items. They appear in Crash Man's stage, Wood Man's stage, Air Man's stage, and the first Wily Castle stage.

Pipi also appears in Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge in both Wily Stages.

In Mega Man II they appear in Air Man's Stage and the last Wily Stage.

They appear in the Mega Water S's stage and the second stage of the Wily Tower in Mega Man: The Wily Wars.

They also appear in Super Adventure Rockmanwhere they drop their Copipis as usual. 


DeluPipi (デラピピ Derapipi) is a larger version of the Pipi that appeared in Mega Man 7 and carries a much larger-sized egg. They also appear as Air Man's support in Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters. In Mega Man 7 they appear in Cloud Man's stage, and Wily Castle stage 1. They would have reappeared in Mega Man: The Power Battle, had they not been cut from the game.


Copipi (子ピピ Kopipi) is the mini-bird from Pipi's egg. A whole flock of them emerge when the egg hatches. In Mega Man 7, they emerge in various patterns.

Other media

A fleet of Pipis is seen attacking the city in the Mega Man cartoon show opening, but they only appeared in the show when Dr. Light builds a "spy" Pipi in the episode titled "Ice Age".

Pipi also had brief appearances in the Mega Man: Upon a Star episodes Wishing Upon a Star and Future Beware, in the Variant Cover of Mega Man #50, and in the manga Mega Man Megamix and Rockman & Forte.
