Rush Coil in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, Rush Coil appears as Mega Man's up special move. Like in the original games, when Mega Man jumps over him, he gains a very high altitude upon jumping. However, unlike in the games, he can be used mid-air, so he can be used as a recovery move, and it doesn't leave Mega Man helpless upon using it. Bouncing off him a second time makes Mega Man jump higher. Opponents can also jump over him, even when mid-air. After a while, Rush teleports away, and can be used again. It acts similar to Sonic's Spring (his up Special move) from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.[1] It can be customized by swapping it out for two variants: Tornado Hold and Beat. However, they must be unlocked before it can be swapped out.

In Castle & Dragon, Rush Coil is a special move from Mega Man. Mega Man calls Rush, jumps on him, and fires a Charge Shot mid-air, hitting a large area.

New Rush Coil

New Rush Coil (ニューラッシュコイル) is a modification of the Rush Coil that only appeared in Mega Man 5, being available from the beginning of the game. The coil appears below Rush, and Rush is propelled with Mega Man. Mega Man can leap off Rush to reach his target, allowing even higher jumps. Each jump uses four units of weapon energy.

Other media

Rush Coil appeared in the Archie Comics Mega Man comic series, in the Rockman manga series, and in Rockman Remix.

New Rush Coil appeared in the Rockman 5 manga.
