The Shield series are Solid Navi Cust parts that give Megaman a B+Left ability to bring up a shield that protects him from damage. If reflect's shield is hit by an attack, it will produce an invisible 50 damage projectile that travels across Megaman's row.

When bugged, the Shield series causes Movement Bug.

Shield can also be provided by Chip Icon 6 Giga 004 Falzar.png HubBatc

  • Breaking and Psuedo-Breaking attacks pierce through Shield and Reflect.
  • Reflect only produces a counterattack for the first attack that hits its shield. Any other attacks that hit the shield while active are blocked, but do not produce a counterattack.
  • Chip Icon 6 Standard 193.png Uninstll will remove Shield and Reflect if it hits.
  • There's a glitch that allows Freeze to be inflicted by certain attacks that hit on ice panels even if it is blocked by the shield series. If this happens, all damage is blocked by the shield, but Reflect's counterattack does not trigger. The glitch only occurs with the following attacks: Chip Icon 6 Standard 076.png AquaSwrd, Chip Icon 6 Standard 115.png BlzrdBal, the Chip Icon 6 Standard 139.png Little Boiler series' water hitbox, the Chip Icon 6 Mega 007 Falzar.png AquaMan series, the Chip Icon 6 Mega 025.png DiveMan series, and Aqua Beast's chip charge.
  • Shield is the same shape and color as FstBarr.

Competitive Overview

As B+Left abilities, Shield and Reflect are only usable by base Megaman, limiting their overall usability. However, they can still be useful for their ability to block incoming damage.

The Shield series can protect its user from an opponent's chips and charge shots provided they time the ability correctly. This is most effective against attacks with plenty of startup frames, such as Tomahawk Cross' charge shot, or to counter opponents who fire their charge shots too predictably. A player can also spam the shield series to potentially block an attack the opponent randomly throws out, but this method is fairly unrelieable.

Shield is more frequently run than Reflect, as Shield has a compact shape that can occupy a single tile on the command line, while reflect is long enough to cover an entire 5x1 column.

The Shield series pairs very well with custs with Emotion Bug, as both only provide benefits to Megaman while he is in his base form. Additionally, the shield series can protect its user while they wait for Humor bug to provide fullsynchro or anger status.


A player can punish an opponent spamming shield by waiting to attack right as the shield disappears.

If an opponent is using shield preemptively to block a player's charge shots, that player can delay their timing slightly to bait them into shielding early.

Breaking and Psuedo-Breaking attacks will pierce the shield series.

Chip Icon 6 Standard 193.png Uninstll removes Shield and Reflect if the chip it is attached to hits the opponent.
