Rootmars is a playable unit in Metal Slug Attack, first appearing in the Extra Ops titled "Alien vs. Morden". Parts are currently available through Another Story, from the "SP" story titled "Endless Summer Vacation".
Rootmars primarily attacks by spitting green acid balls from its mouth, and its special attack is bursting out electric shock wave from its brain. With 3 unlocked, all of Rootmars' attack has the ability to potentially stun the enemy units.
Furthermore, 4 provides an attack boost for its faction, helping units like Odette deal even more damage with their attacks. It's high health also makes it capable of defending itself without getting destroyed quickly, unlike Ptolemaios, who has low health.
Rootmars has two team bonuses:
- If placed in a deck with Gen.Morden Ver.Di-Cokka, they form the "Alien vs. Morden" team, reducing their AP costs by 10%.
- If placed in a deck with the Rootmars Slug, they form the "Wisdom of Mars" team, reducing their AP costs by 10%.
