Mega Man 5 known as Rockman 5: Blues no Wana!? (ロックマン5 ブルースの罠!?) in Japan, is an action-platform video game developed by Capcom for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It is the fifth game in the original Mega Man series and was released in Japan on December 4, 1992. It saw a release during the same month in North America and in 1993 in Europe.
Taking place after the events of Mega Man 4, Mega Man's brother and ally Proto Man uncharacteristically leads a group of menacing robots in attacks on the world and kidnaps his own creator Dr. Light, leaving the title character little choice but to take up arms in a fight against his once trusted sibling. Mega Man 5 carries over the same graphical style and action-platforming gameplay as the four preceding chapters in the series.
In the Super Smash Flash series
Beat, a robotic bird debuting in this game that the player use as a weapon, appears in Super Smash Flash 2 in Mega Man's up special move, Beat Call. Additionally, Mega Man's down special move uses Water Wave, a weapon acquired after defeating Wave Man that fires a projectile creating waves on the ground.
