Metal Rear's gameplay is very simple, with each button doing one of its moves. It uses (X) as a ram attack, (Y) to crush the opponent with a wheelie, (Z) to rotate its guns' sight clockwise, (A) to fire its cannon, (B) to fire its guns and (C) to rotate its guns' sight counter-clockwise.
While it doesn't have a custom A.I., it can still be a challenge, especially for melee characters.
This character does not have any Special or Hyper Attacks.
This character does not have any victory quotes, meaning it uses the screenpack's default.
