Beat (ビート, Bīto?) is a character from the classic Mega Man series of action platformer games.
Introduced in Mega Man 5, Beat is a useful robotic bird, built by Dr. Cossack for Mega Man, as a gift for saving his daughter Kalinka. Beat doesn't like carrying weighty objects, but he carries Mega Man anyway. In Mega Man 5, Mega Man 6 and Mega Man IV, he attacks enemies that appear in his path (except bosses in Mega Man 6).
He appears in the 2001 China-only release Mega Man Strategy.
Beat's counterpart in the MegaMan Battle Network series is a Navi Customizer program that appears once per battle in multiplayer NetBattles to take one of the opponent's Mega/Giga chips for the player to use.
