Sniper Joe 01 (スナイパージョー０１) is the Sniper Joe from Mega Man 7 that acts like the original Sniper Joe, except it shoots more often. It is notorious for being defeated with only four shots from the Mega Buster.
The class was originally an unknown type of mass-produced humanoid robot created by Dr. Light based on Proto Man. Dr. Wily modified the robots for combat, creating the Joe series, which resemble Proto Man in his Break Man form. They appear as enemies in almost every game from the original Mega Man series, giving Mega Man a difficult time getting through as an obstacle. They mainly fight with a shield and a blaster, but some variations also operate vehicles and have different attacks.
