Ben K is an enemy robot that appears in Yamato Man's stage in Mega Man 6. Fashioned after ancient Japanese warriors, these robots wield a seemingly limitless number of spears. A Ben K will spin the spear it is holding and use it as a shield to deflect any shots fired at it. It will also throw the spear after a while, then reach for another one. In the few seconds it takes to grab another spear, it is vulnerable. Heavy weapons such as the Knight Crush will smash straight through its defense and destroy it.
