Rush Coil (ラッシュコイル Rasshu Koiru) is a recurring item in the original Mega Man series. When used, Rush appears and a coil platform emerges from his body, which can be used to propel Mega Man to higher areas by jumping on the coil.

Other appearances

In Wily & Right's RockBoard: That's Paradise, Rush Coil is used to send a player to a different panel.

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.

Super Smash Bros. series

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

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, 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).[1] In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U 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.

North American description:
A faithful robotic dog created by Dr. Light, he can transform into vehicles and even fuse with Mega Man. You can use Mega Man's up special to call Rush to your side, bouncing off his built-in spring and flying high into the air. Rush will hang around for a bit, so spring up again if you want!

European description:
Mega Man's robotic dog Rush has many talents. He can transform into vehicles and even fuse with Mega Man, which is both cool and slightly weird. Even cooler is his Rush Coil function. Use Mega Man's up special to call Rush, jump on his back, and enjoy the extra boost you only get from a bouncy, robotic-dog back spring.

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.
