When the Forces of Chaos challenged the N Team to an athletic competition for the throne of Videoland, Mega Man and Dr. Wily had to race each other through an electric maze. As Mega Man approached the finish line, Dr. Wily deployed a Blader that disintegrated Mega Man with an energy bolt and allowed him to win the race.
On another occasion, Kevin Keene, Princess Lana, Duke, and Mega Man were attacked by a Blader near the beginning of Cuts Man's stage, which they needed to clear in order to stop Dr. Wily from taking over Megaland. Kevin destroyed it with a single shot from his Zapper, but several more Bladers attacked them after they got stomped by Big Eye and teleported back to the beginning of the stage. Kevin and Mega Man held them off while the group pushed forward, hurrying to regain their lost progress.
