Its weak spot is the cockpit, which takes more damage from the Thunder Bolt, but the miniatures are immune to it, and they tend to get in the way, so it's recommended to just use the regular Mega Buster for them. The machine can be defeated without much difficulty. After its destruction, Wily continues fighting with the Wily Capsule.
In Puzzle Fighter, Wily Machine 7 appeared in Dr. Wily's intro and in his special moves.
- WM7 Miniature - Wily sends a miniature of the Wily Machine 7 to the opponent, exploding on contact.
- WM7 Trample and WM7 Assist - Wily smashes the opponent with the Wily Machine 7.
The Wily Machine 7 appeared in the Rockman 7 manga.
In the last issue from the Mega Man comic series by Dreamwave Productions, Dr. Wily summoned four unnamed machines that resemble the Wily Machine 7.
