Ballade (MKN-003) is the third of the Mega Man Killerscreated by Dr. Albert W. Wily. He appears in Mega Man IV on the Game Boy, boasting that he is the strongest of all of Dr. Wily's robots. However, twice he battles against Mega Man and fails, and comes to realise his error. He later helps Mega Man escape Dr. Wily's space station by self-destructing and blasting a hole through the hull. He would reappear however in Mega Man V and later still in Mega Man 10 as a downloadable boss.
