Quint is a Robot Master created by Dr. Wily in Mega Man II. He has a weapon called Sakugarne. He's not a Mega Man Killer, but he serves as the same roles of Enker, Punk and Ballade.

In other countries, Quint was actually Megaman from the future, who was captured by Dr. Wily, who in turned reprogrammed and remolded him into Quint.
Quint will hop and land on the ground to create a destruction, causing rocks to hit Mega Man. Touching him on contact will damage him.

Mega Man V
Quint will behave like the one in Mega Man II, except the contact and ground debris attack have the attacks increased. His weakness is Photon Missile.
