For the Mega Man ZX enemy, see Springer (ZX).

Springer (スプリンガー Supuringā), known as Spring Head in the Mega Man 2 instruction manual for the U.S., is an enemy robot from the Mega Man series that was built from the remains of broken Crazy Razies.[1] Similar to Gabyoall, Springer slides on the floors, and speeds up when Mega Man is on the same piece of land as the Springer. If Mega Man touches a Springer, its head springs up.

In Mega Man 2, they appear in Metal Man's stage, Heat Man's stage, Quick Man's stage and in the Wily Castle. The regular Mega Buster shot cannot harm them. Leaf Shield, Quick Boomerang and Bubble Lead are better choices to hit them with.

Springers also appear in Metal Man's stage in Mega Man II, in the second Wily Tower stage in Mega Man: The Wily Wars, and in the Wily Stage (a copy of Quick Man's stage from Mega Man 2) in Mega Man on the Game Gear.
