Despite the reluctance of video game publisher Capcom to green-light any new titles, there’s a lot to love about the Mega Man franchise, including creative boss battles, catchy music, and tough but fair challenges. The defining characteristic of the series, though, is the ability to acquire the weapons of your fallen foes, upgrading your starting buster gun so that it fires flames, saw blades, or that weird circle of leaves from Mega Man 2.

Mega Man only has a limited number of shots with each weapon, though. Thankfully, he can restock his health and weapon energy by picking up containers called E Tanks during each level. Still, there never seem to be enough E Tanks about when you really need them, so if you’re a trigger happy Mega Man fan, you might want to keep one lying around your living room in the form of this cool E-Tank cushion.

Standing 32 centimeters (12.6 inches) tall with a diameter of 27 centimeters (10.6 inches), the polyester E-Tank cushion is being offered directly from Capcom. Sadly, placing it on your couch as you play your favorite title from the series won’t power up the Blue Bomber in any way, but it is just the thing for when you’re looking to recharge your own batteries with a nap.

If you’re not sure about showing your love for Mega Man this way, say, because you think the E Tank will clash with your preexisting Metal Gear living room set/empty cardboard box you’re using for a coffee table, there are other options. Capcom’s also offering four new acrylic key chains with Mega Man, Proto Man, Mega Man X, and Mega Man Zero.

▼ Oddly though, since Mega Man X was a Super NES title, he never actually looked this pixelated.

▼ Ditto for Mega Man Zero in his Game Boy Advance appearances

All of these items are available through Capcom’s E-Capcom online store. Each keychain has its own order page, although they all share their 756-yen (US$7.40) price tag. The E-Tank cushion, available here, is costlier at 3,024 yen, but hey, it’s not like fans have to save their cash for a new Mega Man game or anything.
