Ballade the third and final "Mega Man Killer" developed by Doctor Wily during the events of Mega Man IV. Prideful and firm in his belief that he is the strongest robot ever developed, he challenges Mega Man to prove himself, only to be humiliated when the Blue Bomber defeats him twice. Ballade's second defeat ultimately makes him see the error of his ways, choosing to self-destruct in order to clear a path for Mega Man to escape the exploding Wily Battleship. However, he is later rebuilt and made to fight Mega Man aboard the Wily Star in Mega Man V. He also appears as part of the optional Special Stage in Mega Man 10.
