The Cloning Machine

The Cloning Machine is a device used in Iris Stage 3 of Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~ to do the boss rushes in the place of the Homonculi from the original game.

Unlike the Golems which directly copied the bosses, the Cloning Machine creates a clone of one of the eight RKS members and then flies away. After defeating all eight clones, a teleporter leading to the Iris Machine II will appear.

Notable Differences from the originals


A Cloning Machine creating a clone of Schwer-Muta.

  • Liebea and Sichte both have walls added to their boss rooms.
  • Luste's boss room has an additional platform in the second phase of the fight due to the teleporter out of the room needing to be there.
  • Zorne and Trauare will not perform their duo attacks under any circumstances, nor will Zorne activate the countdown after entering Desperation Mode.


  • The Cloning Machine is similar in both design and functionality to the machine used to create Copy Robot in Mega Man 1 and Mega Man: Powered Up.
  • Like the Homonculi before it the Cloning Machine is a reference the Mega Man series' re-battle against the Robot Masters in the final stages of the game, starting from Mega Man 2.
  • The music that plays against the clones is "Four Heavenly Kings", composed by DEAD END WONDER, which is the same music played as the Schwarzkreuz boss theme.
