Wave Burner (ウェーブバーナー Wēbu Bānā) is Burner Man's Special Weapon from Mega Man & Bass. It is a short-ranged flamethrower that can hit enemies multiple times while active. When used by Mega Man, the flames are red and more detailed; when used by Bass, the flames are green and less detailed, like Burner Man's flames. The Wave Burner can also break ice blocks, destroy explosive boxes (marked with a fire logo), and can act as a small light source in dark areas like the ones in Dynamo Man's stage.

When used underwater, it is unable to create flames and harm enemies, but releases waves that can push some enemies and objects, such as the floating spiked mines in Pirate Man's stage.

Wave Burner is Pirate Man's weakness and is capable of preventing him from executing his spinning water bubble attack, and popping the bubble once the attack starts, sending Pirate Man headfirst into the floor. It also will ignite him for a split second if he is hit while the weapon is used outside of the water. This weapon is also the weakness of Jet King Robo, is effective against Magic Man (if the player runs out of Tengu Blade energy), and is the only weapon capable of destroying Spinning Gabyoalls in its source game.
