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 Smash Run, in which they retain their behavior from Mega Man series. Mettaurs fire three bullets in different directions in front of them before they retreat 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.

Mettaurs have a different trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, unlike most subjects. In the latter game, their trophy can be bought from the Trophy Shop. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there is a spirit of Mettaur.

86: Mega Man Flag of USA.png 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.

Trivia

  • 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.
