This page is about the Robot Master Punk. For his NetNavi counterpart, see Punk.EXE.

Punk (パンク Panku) is the second of the "Mega Man Killer" robots created by Dr. Wily to destroy Mega Man. He can attack by folding into a compact ball and using his numerous blades and spikes to deal major damage to foes by ramming into them, but can also use his Special Weapon, the Screw Crusher, to hurl spinning blades and deal crushing blows from a distance.

He is a very tough Robot Master, as he causes a lot of damage and none of the weapons from Mega Man III besides the Mega Buster work on him. However, in Mega Man V his attacks and defenses are weaker. He reappears as one of the downloadable bosses in Mega Man 10, alongside his fellow "Mega Man Killers" Enker and Ballade.

Punk is a Robot Master who believes in his strength, and enjoys fighting his opponents on equal terms to prove it. He is rebellious, following his own path in life and refusing to obey figures of authority, such as parent-teacher associations, but is somewhat susceptible to misunderstanding people. In fitting with his punk rocker-like appearance, Punk likes to collect and wear spiked accessories. Turbo Man does not get along well with him, most likely due to the Mega Man Killer's numerous sharp attachments posing a threat to his tires.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

Punk first appears in issue 20 of the Mega Man comic by Archie Comics. He and the rest of the Mega Man Killers and the Genesis Unit invade the Chronos Institute alongside Dr. Wily, and are held in reserve when Mega Man's approach is detected. He and his teammates appeared again during the events of Worlds Collide, in which they battled Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog's team aboard the Wily Egg. Punk initially annoyed Sonic with his spinning move's similarity to Sonic's trademark attack, but the Hedgehog later tricked him into using it to destroy Enker. Punk was then destroyed by the group of heroes along with Ballade, though Sonic's sidekick Tails was gravely injured as a result.


Punk appears in the manga Rockman World 3, Rockman: Yomigaeru Blues, and Rockman 4Koma Dai Koushin.




  • Punk is named after the music style punk rock.
  • Keiji Inafune has stated that he especially liked Punk,[1] even going as far as using his influence as a producer to have him included in the Mega Man Battle Network series and insisting on redesigning him personally.[1]
  • Punk is the only Mega Man Killer to have a NetNavi counterpart.
  • It is unknown why Punk dislikes the PTA, but it may infer that he has a punk teenager sort of personality, and that he dislikes any kind of authority figures; this example being school teachers. However, in the Mega Man: Robot Master Field Guide book, the reason why he hates the PTA was stated as "due to his tendency to easily misunderstand things".
  • Punk's level in Mega Man 10 is somewhat of a remake of the Wily Level of Mega Man III.
  • Punk and Dark Man 4 have similar body structures.
  • The unusual pointed tips on Punk's boots are a reference to the similar pointed shoes worn by Japanese punk rockers.
  • Despite appearing alongside Enker and Ballade in the Archie Comics series twice, Punk is the only Mega Man Killer to not have any lines in the run.
