The spaceship first appeared in the first Mega Man game with a red and yellow color scheme. In Mega Man 2 onward, the appearance changed and the red color was replaced by blue, having minor design changes in some games. In Mega Man Powered Up, the spaceship is red and blue, and he uses it to kidnap most of Dr. Light's Robot Masters.
The spaceship is equipped with a mechanical claw and a tractor beam. Wily usually doesn't battle against Mega Man using only the spaceship, except for Mega Man IV and the ending of Mega Man V. It was also used in Episode 2: Electric Nightmare, but it is attached to several of his Wily Machines. Wily also uses it once in the cartoon show, where it retains but never uses its claw.
