Mettaurs, also referred to as Metalls, Mettools or simply Mets, are a recurring enemy in the Mega Man franchise. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Mettaurs appear as enemies in the Smash Run mode. They behave like they do in their series of origin, firing three bullets in different directions in front of them before retreating underneath their helmet. While they are hiding under the helmet they cannot be harmed by any attacks, though they can still be grabbed and thrown.

Trophy information[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

Name Image Description
Mettaur SSB3DS Mettaur trophy.png This enemy comes to Smash Bros. from the Mega Man series, bringing its distinct yellow helmet along with it. Usually hiding under its helmet, every so often a Mettaur will show its face to fire off a few shots. You can't hurt them when they hunker down, but you can grab them...

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

A familiar foe from the Mega Man series, these guys are pretty distinct with that big yellow helmet. It looks a lot like a hard hat from a construction site. It's pretty great protection–you can't really hurt these guys until they look up from under the helmet. The Cactuspy and slippery New Met are pretty similar.

Names in other languages[edit]

Language Name Meaning
Japanese メットール
Metall; from the phrase "all (hel)met"[1]


  • The trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U claims that the enemy it depicts first appeared in the original Mega Man game. While it is technically true that Mets in general debuted there, the Mets in that game were legless slug-like robots, with the design used in Smash Bros. being based off of later models, such as the Neo Metall, which in fact first appeared in Mega Man 2.
