Eddie is a small robot created by Dr. Light that essentially functions as a walking suitcase. First appearing in Mega Man 4, Eddie's job is to provide Mega Man support items in the field and appears halfway through a stage to deliver Mega Man a random item such as a health ball, weapon energy or an extra life. Eddie also has jets in his back for flight and in Mega Man 8 he can offer fire support to Mega Man during scrolling shooter sections of the game by throwing bombs out of the top of his head.
