The Pro MegaMaster is a third-party accessory for the Sega Mega Drive created by Datel.

The Pro MegaMaster essentially serves as a smaller and cheaper alternative to the Power Base Converter, allowing Mega Drive owners to play Sega Master System games. Though the device has a built in pause button, it is unable to read games on Sega Cards, and like the Power Base Converter will not function with SG-1000 cartridges (should an extra converter be used to take into account the differing cartridge shape).

Like all Datel's products from the era the Pro MegaMaster was not endorsed by Sega. It was also sold in limited quantities primarily in the UK, making it a rarer item than the Power Base Converter.
