UPDATE: Winners have been announced! Click here to see! (scroll to the bottom of the thread)
By now, I'm sure you've seen our big photo gallery from the 2008 "I Am 8-Bit" opening reception (if not, click here to see it). Well, in addition to getting to see all of that amazing video game inspired artwork in person along with the excellent chiptunes courtesy of Leeni, they were giving away Mega Man 9 posters. Now, for those of you who aren't familiar with the classic Mega Man games (and if you're not, you should remedy that as soon as possible), the series was notorious for having some of the most hilariously awful box art. Well, in celebration of the new Mega Man 9 game coming out on the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console, an artist by the name of Gerald de Jesus created the amazingly accurate retro-style box art for the game. I'm hoping Capcom will do a limited edition release of the game on classic NES cartridges, but I'm not gonna get my hopes up for that. Fortunately, I'll always have the poster for the game... and now some of you can too.
I'm giving away three (3) of these super snazzy Mega Man 9 posters, but in order to be one of the winners you need to come up with a new robot master. No you don't have to draw one (though, should you feel inclined, feel free to do so), all you need to do is simply come up with a name for the robot master and describe its unique abilities. For those of you not quite as familiar with the Mega Man series, I suggest checking this list to make sure your idea for a robot master hasn't already been done in one of the games. You can enter as many times as you like, just post your entries in this thread. We'll be judging these entries solely on creativity, so good luck!
This contest ends on August 26th, 2008.

Zoinks - that poster's got nothing on the pure cheesiness that was the original Mega Man box art
Viteh on 08/18/2008 11:59 pm
My personal favorite is the box art of the first game. This imagine speaks fluid awfulness (good thing these images were the total opposite of the gameplay).
Ferrit on 08/19/2008 12:19 am
Yep - that's it alright Viteh. Lookin like it was drawn with colored pencils in the special ed class during a power outage. I've still got it - box, game and all - all boxed up in a closet, prob'ly bringing down the value of my home :P
JakeOfAllTrades on 08/19/2008 12:19 am
I'm entering my robot master who has the unique ability to throw game programmers at you who mess with your control pad, and you have to keep pressing a combination of the buttons to shake it off. I call him Haxor 1337!
DALI-II on 08/19/2008 12:51 am
Mine is called GRAB MAN.
Basicilly, he's kinda like mega man, in the fact that he has the powers of EVERY robot master in the series and is faster than lighting. And he can leech MM's health.
Viteh on 08/19/2008 12:53 am
Ok, this is my robot master entry. My robot is called BoxArter, his ability consists in making awful drawings of Mega Man (like the box art of Mega Man I). As soon as Mega Man sees them, he feels so bad about himself that his energy starts to diminish.
Philosophic Armadillo on 08/19/2008 1:15 am
My robot master is named Block Man. He is able to create solid stone blocks which he then kicks across the room towards Mega Man, and then shatter on contact.
Philosophic Armadillo on 08/19/2008 1:23 am
Oh, and another robot master before I forget, I have delightfully named Guido Man. The ability of Guido Man is dripping excessive amounts of grease from his blow-out hair style and gears, which Mega Man then slips upon, resulting in Mega sliding and crashing into Guido Man. This is due to the fact that Guido Man thoroughly enjoys coming into close contact with other men.
HeroliciousDeBlanc on 08/19/2008 1:33 am
Guido Man's stage should sap Mega Man's health trhough giant waves of bright orange self-tan.
BCR (Guest) on 08/19/2008 1:58 am
To be true to the classic simple names, my main submission would be "Sound Man", or maybe "Amp Man". He would be a big speaker with legs and could shoot quick, small shots from the tweeter, medium from the woofer, and of course larger and slower shots from the sub. He could also fall down and shake the ground which would bounce Mega Man around randomly.
Or Cake Man, who would shoot cakes. Each one that hit Mega Man would make him fatter until he couldn't move and then CM would go for the easy kill. Pushing into the robot oven?
greenimp on 08/19/2008 2:00 am
well i thought of the most useless possible robot master! hes called bubbleman, and he blo... oh wait, damn
VaporTrail85 (Guest) on 08/19/2008 2:10 am
I always though that hard man sorta looked like a beer keg. So how about Keg Man with the special weapon as the Keg Stand or Barrel Roll?
VaporTrailx1 (Guest) on 08/19/2008 2:12 am
i actually had a sprite i made for keg man in high school but lost it....
g_tonttu on 08/19/2008 2:39 am
He's special ability is to laugh at how puny Mega Man is, also he cuts wood without a shirt and wrestles Buffalo.
The sprite looks like a Double Dragon character.
All muscles, no shirt and cool blue jeans.
T (Guest) on 08/19/2008 3:09 am
Macho Man - boss stage held in a Pro Wrestling(NES) ring. Macho is super fast from all the cocai...umm i mean slim jims. shoots flying elbows.
Fast Eddy (Guest) on 08/19/2008 3:11 am
Power: Crippling waves of radiation which issue from a rotating dish upon his head causing malfunctions in other robots. It's worth noting the true effects of this power go unnoticed until many years later when Mega Man is stricken with dementia.
Power: Runs away. The only way to defeat him is to cripple him with radiation.
Power: Turns into a Nuclear warhead killing everything including himself instantly upon detonation, also destroying the floor causing subsequent lives to be lost falling into it. He is widely regarded as being a bastard and is also undefeatable until you get the "Running Man" skill.
Akekazori (Guest) on 08/19/2008 3:21 am
-Created by Dr. Wily to watch over/keep control of malfunctioning Robot Masters, among Wily's other various creations.
Aside from the regular running/jumping, Riot Man's attacks are as follows:
-> Riot Man lunges across the screen at Mega Man, riot shield raised. Shield deflects Buster shots, and stuns for a couple seconds on impact.
-> Riot Man launches three shots of tear gas from his arm cannon, which expands in a small dome-shaped fashion surrounding the point of impact. Mega Man's health slowly decreases in these areas.
-> Riot Man jumps and latches onto the middle of the ceiling, and uses a taser on the metal walls of his stage. Five bursts of electric pulses follow the border of his stage on both sides.
Defeating Riot Man gives Mega Man Riot Shield, a short dash attack that deflect most enemies shots, and damages on impact.
T (Guest) on 08/19/2008 3:26 am
The Man - tries to keep you down by throwing night sticks and shooting water out of his water hose arm
*Do not try to defeat The Man with Black Man or all power will be drained
Akekazori (Guest) on 08/19/2008 3:28 am
Actually, to fit more with the older games, I'm changing Riot Man's origin:
-Riot Man was created to keep citizens under control in events of extreme panic and disorder.
BloPant (Guest) on 08/19/2008 3:29 am
Name: Mist Man
Attacks: Can disappear and reappear, seemingly at random.
Can expel mist, disrupting enemy view.
Can fire "Mist Missiles", a fast moving but weak projectile attack.
Ability Gained: Once defeated Mega Man gains the "Mist Missile" ability.
Name: Kool-Aid Man
Attacks: Can dispatch thirst with ease.
Can burst through heavy objects.
Has a sonic "OH Yeah!" attack.
Ability Gained: Once defeated Mega Man gains the ability to burst through any wall in his path.
BiggerJ (Guest) on 08/19/2008 5:11 am
Glitch Man - His ordinary-seeming level stops seeming ordinary to Mega Man when he is infected with a virus. His surroundings appear to glitch out, and the rules change completely. Ever been shot by a ladder? Ever stood on a Sniper Joe? Ever been instantly killed by a glitch-garbage sprite? You will now! Glitch Man himself can make Megaman's controls delayed and partially unresponsive and can also temporarily disable Megaman's gun without warning. His inheritable weapon is the ability to shoot randomly-behaving garbage sprites.
MysticJoJo (Guest) on 08/19/2008 5:18 am
My new Robot Master is Carpal Tunnel Man. While he doesn't move much(or at all) or fire any weapons, defeating him is nessecary, and his only advantage is his extremely high and constantly-regenerating health bar. The only way to defeat him is to run up to him and rapidly mash the fire button for a good half-hour. He is weak to the turbo-fire powerup you obtain from Rich-friend-who-bought-a-freaking-NES-Advantage-but-won't-let-you-use-it Man. Defeating Carpal Tunnel Man will grant Mega Man use of his weapon, the OSHA Lawsuit shot, which deals tremendous damage to non-ergonomic enemies but, as it's merely a piece of paper, will flutter to the ground shortly after being fired. It will also unlock the Wrist Braces item, which slightly offsets the tremendous pain gained from bothering to fight Carpal Tunnel Man.
Viteh on 08/19/2008 5:30 am
I second the Macho Man Man nomination. He would attack Mega Man with his moving chest, which will hypnotize him.
I was also thinking about a robot called Chuck Norris (the man part is not needed since it is self implied), but come to think about, it is not a good idea, because this robot would be invincible and the plot requires for Mega Man to win.
Commodore64 (Guest) on 08/19/2008 7:44 am
He is protected by a nearly impenetrable wall of unsold copies of "Rabid Grannies" To defeat him you must deflect his barrage of razor edged "Sizzle Beach U.S.A. laserdiscs into his only weak point, the bow tie.
Negative Zero on 08/19/2008 8:07 am
Entry #1: Solar Man (reprogrammed energy managing robot).
He would be wearing all black (sort of like Nuclear Man from Superman IV) and he would have a tiny solar cell on his forehead. His weapon would a narrow laser beam in addition to, well, jumping around like most bosses. But his boss chamber has clouds passing overhead, so you have to wait until he's underneath a cloud before he's vulnerable (otherwise you'll have to use the Cloud Beam from Overcast Man's stage or something). When you beat him, you get a great image of Mega Man turning yellow, saying "You Got Solar Flare!" which means you too can shoot laser beams. His stage would be a bunch of solar panels, often tilted at awkward angles.
Entry #2: Medicine Man (reprogrammed medic robot)
You find Medicine Man after a long trek through a robot hospital level, where you fight lots of damaged, half-functional robots (maybe even a zombie Guts Man) until you get to his boss chamber (operating room). He wears a white lab coat, white operating mask, and a stethoscope. From afar he'll throw poison syringes at you (a la Metal Man from Mega Man 2) but if you get close, he'll whip you with a stethoscope. If you're hit with a syringe, you glow green and move slowly. Sometimes Medicine Man jumps into the air for no apparent reason. When you beat him, "You Got: Poison Dart!"
liquidcross (Guest) on 08/19/2008 8:10 am
Sledge Man. He attacks with a giant hammer, both in close combat and hurling it for ranged attacks. After throwing it, he's momentarily vulnerable as he has to go and pick it up. Defeating him will earn Mega Man the Hammer Throw weapon, which is identical to the Hammer Bros' attacks from Super Mario Bros.
Commodore64 (Guest) on 08/19/2008 8:15 am
-Launches a flurry of tanning pills across town. If Mega Man is hit he loses the ability to hail a cab to the battle and loses by forfeit.
-If Mega Man makes it to the battle he need only present Soul Man with a copy of "The Outsiders" to autograph. Since this has never happened he becomes befuddled and stumbles into an open manhole.
Negative Zero on 08/19/2008 8:29 am
Entry #3: Quantum Man (reprogrammed research robot)
His main weapon is placing you in a Schrodinger's box, making you lose half of your life every time. Defeating him gives you Quantum Leap, which as cool as it may sound, only means you can jump really high until the special meter runs out.
Entry #4: Cackle Man (reprogrammed entertainment robot)
He has a Sonic Chortle which paralyzes you if you're caught in its range. He can also use the Laugh Track to bring down chunks of ceiling as a weapon. Defeating him gives you the Chuckle Wave, which is Mega Man's laughter in the high-pitched voice from Mega Man X4. Pro tip: to defeat him, use Whisper Man's Mutter Ray and when he gets close, use Rush's Robo Rabies to finish him.
His chamber is before a live studio audience.
TGossard on 08/19/2008 9:00 am
The setting is the Yummy Pie Bakery, located in a massive strip mall that Dr. Wily has built for his robots. After fighting his way through exploding cupcakes and razor sharp cookies, Mega Man encounters the robot master, Yummy Pie Man. Looking like an old-fashioned stove with chef's hat and a whisk for one arm, Yummy Pie Man is relentless in defending his kitchen. His attack is a barrage of his special Sticky Cream Pies that gum up Mega Man's gun followed by a vicious assault from his whisk arm. Truly a terrifying foe, Yummy Pie Man is a killer robot with a sweet tooth.
5upr3m3 H4xx0r on 08/19/2008 9:07 am
Designed by Wily to be a perfect replica of a famous fighter, Ryu Man is an incredible martial artist.
Powers: Hadoken - Ryu Man fires a blue flame from his hands.
Shoryuken - Ryu Man gets close and does a flaming uppercut.
When Mega Man defeats him, he gains Hadoken, which is a small blue flame shot that is very effective against M. Bison Man.
xscoot on 08/19/2008 9:20 am
Mine is pickleman! He has a cape, and the ability to throw exploding pickles at you. Another ability of his is to spot catchphrases from his videogame, released in 2006. He also take three hours to beat due to his awesomeness.
Just in case brown-nosing doesn't work, I'll make some more robot masters later.
argonath on 08/19/2008 9:25 am
You all know the Muffin Man...or do you? Dr. Wily created Muffin Man to guard the vast stores of pastries and cakes that the overweight Mrs. Dr. Wily cannot live without.
Weapon: Bran Ray
The Bran Ray makes enemies crap their drawers, forcing them to--slowly--walk offscreen for a new pair.
Jeremy B. (Guest) on 08/19/2008 9:35 am
Metaphor Man - All of your nastiest nightmares and insecurities bounds together into the alarming image of your naked mother, the rope you were forced to climb during gym in the 6th grade, and your one true love from college who “just wanted to be friends.”
Powers - Can drain you of all personal growth that it took years of denial and therapy to achieve. Can make you question your sexuality after getting that massage, and wonder if listening to Miley Cyrus on the radio when not being forced to by an eight year old girl is morally wrong. Metaphor man can make you question every decision you have ever made and then make you question them again. He can pop up at the most inappropriate times, such as during job interviews, punching the wall, at 3AM when you are drunk and about to call your ex-girlfriend, and during love making when you call out your sister’s name. Metaphor man’s only know weakness includes medication (but you don’t feel like you need to keep taking it after you take it, besides it was your hard work and intelligence that made the bad feelings go away, not some dumb pill prescribed by some doctor who’s not as smart as you anyway) and blogging to 1000’s of total strangers about all of your personal shortcomings.
He’s also vulnerable to things that are pink for some reason. Go figure.
Alan Bates on 08/19/2008 9:40 am
Designed as a Mathematics and geometry specialist, Triangle Man now fights with his glowing Triangle Beam, which is really little more than a huge explosion of energy in a large triangle shape.
Triangle Man hates Megaman.
Alessandro (Guest) on 08/19/2008 9:59 am
My Robot Master would be named Wuh Man, with the ability to nag MegaMan until his ears fell off and his private parts shriveled back into his robo-pelvis.
Chris (Guest) on 08/19/2008 10:13 am
My Robot master.
Name: Ladies Man. (can also be referred to as "leather Jacket guy")
special abilities: Jump, Hurl beautiful, distracting women at Megaman.
Basically he looks like one of those douches at the clubs that wear the big sunglasses and call people tools if they don't like his hair.
Phaeon (Guest) on 08/19/2008 10:22 am
Gentlemen, I give you Origami Man. He would be made entirely out of thin pieces of metal, allowing him to fold into virtually anything. This would give him the capability to dodge anything by folding flat into the ground. He would also use this ability for offense ala Clayface. Would probably be weak to the Flame-Man-Rip-Off's weapon. Would give Mega Man the ability to shoot folded pieces of metal, and each time it could be something different. A paper airplane, a crane, a 'paper' Rush, clumped up piece of paper, who knows.
Icculus on 08/19/2008 10:24 am
I would have Bob Ross Man. His world would be a picturesque one with beautiful landscapes of mountains and trees and rivers. His powers would be to hypnotize you with his docile tones while you have to avoid his paint brushes and flying paint pallet of death.
(incorrect link removed)
Icculus on 08/19/2008 10:25 am
Damn it my image wouldn't up load...any tips on this anyone?
Olly (Guest) on 08/19/2008 10:31 am
I know what you're thinking, Megaman won't like him when he's angry. Well actually that's true, but less in the 'grows big green and indestructible' way and much more in the 'tears his tight yellow shirt off and opens a can of angry angry whoopass' way. Oh yes, this Robot Master would be designed around the one and only true Hulkster, Hulk Hogan!
Before even his first attack Megaman would have to sit and watch as Hulk Man enters the stage, strips off his shirt and poses for the crowd; all the while with his theme song playing proudly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0akddPHZlI for those who can't remember it or, for some strange reason, don't know it).
Well versed in the most violent and extreme form of mortal combat, that of WWF Wrestling, Hulk Man uses a wide variety of wrestling techniques and submissions in order to defeat Megaman. If it looks as though somehow Megaman might actually be able to win then you just know that the Hulk Up Combination is coming where, starting on his knees, Hulk Man rises up laying punch after punch on his opponenet and finishing off with an Atomic Leg Drop.
Hulk Man is a real American!
qwertzuiop (Guest) on 08/19/2008 10:38 am
How about Egg Man? They're the Egg Men! I am the Walrus. Goo-goo a joob!
Kyle (Guest) on 08/19/2008 10:38 am
My entry is Idiot Man. When Mega Man enters his lair he is bombarded by a complete wave of idiocy and becomes completely stupid and useless for a couple seconds. Idiot Man uses this time to wander around the screen asking questions no one knows how to answer, such as "Do bananas come from pineapples?" This only furthers the magnitude of stupid and causes Mega Man to start to drool embarrassingly. Once Maega Man comes to, it is relatively easy to defeat Idiot Man, in that all you have to do is ignore him and he'll wander away, trying to find someone who will pretend to be interested in what he has to say. The weapon you earn is "Ray of Stupid" which when fired causes enemies' eyes to glaze over. They start to drool uncontrollably and wander around and often off of the screen. For those that don't Mega Man may simply walk into them and they shrivel up in a small pit of idiocy.

Icculus (and anybody else wanting to post images), your image is hosted inside a Myspace account that people have to login in order to view. You need to host your image somewhere more public like on Flickr or Photobucket.
sam (Guest) on 08/19/2008 11:13 am
Volt man. He attacks by firing elctricity[duh] at megaman and causing temporary blackouts
ginmortal on 08/19/2008 11:24 am
Douche Bag man---> With the polo shirt collar up, parks into handicapped spaces and takes advantage of underage drunk girls at frat parties, the pure shock drains Mega man powers to death.
Enron man--->He drains mega man's 401K until he commits suicide
ginmortal on 08/19/2008 11:26 am
That robot man--> Appears all throughout the game at uninvited moments, usually wearing the stage boss' likeness in a T-shirt.
Icculus on 08/19/2008 11:26 am
Thanks Rog, Let try this again
MRParr (Guest) on 08/19/2008 11:59 am
I always thought a Puppet Man character would be pretty cool. He shoots marionette strings into broken robots and controls them during the boss battle. You would inherit that after the fight and be able to control certain enemies.
Also Juwanna Mann could be pretty good but I don't know where else to go from there.
WCP Man (aka, Keith) (Guest) on 08/19/2008 12:00 pm
Name: Warrior Chode Penis Man
Attacks: Warrior's Flop (To hideous to describe)
Chode Frenzy (Fires patternised wangs
from his back mounted launchers)
Standard Buster Fire
Inherited Attack: Ass Phalanx (No description required... or wanted)
Retroid (Guest) on 08/19/2008 12:01 pm
Recylor. His ability is to suck Megaman into his body, draining him of health, then spitting him back out. When he absorbs Megaman's health, he fires out a drone to assist in Megaman's demise. He can also walk on the ceiling and walls due to powerful vacuums on his feet. He can also suck in various debris and fire it back at Megaman.
When defeated, Megaman gains the Vacuum ability, which he can use to suck in Reploids to replenish his health, and when at full health he can make drones of his own to help with the firepower.
captain516 on 08/19/2008 12:03 pm
Shatner Man- possessing all the charisma of the legendary actor, Shatner Man is also equipped with a laser weapon(Just like Kirk's) and several heat-seaking miniture rockets.
Jazz Man- Who knew Doc Wily was one for affirmitive action? That's right- this robot is black! Wearing a white jacket, beret, and sunglasses, and with a giant saxophone that fires bullets!
I'll have more later.
GreenPeaness on 08/19/2008 12:43 pm
My original Megaman creation would be Black Smith Man. Yes, Black Smith Man. It would be an 8-bit rendering of Will Smith at his blackest. His attacks would consist of the "Welcome to Urff!" punch and an oh-so-devastating NYPD Bomber ability, shouting "N! Y! P! D! kNock Yo Punkass Down!" Defeating Black Smith Man will equip you with the DJ Jazzy Jeff Cameo which will allow Jazz Jeff to appear in any subsequent level of the game only to woodenly say something and be thrown out of the house by Geoffry.
I suppose in retrospect, Black Smith Man should also have a hammer or something. You know, because the name could be misleading. Maybe.
KillerMcGee on 08/19/2008 1:00 pm
Canadian Man - He is superior to Mega Man in every way. The only way to defeat him is to politely ask him to surrender.
Boonehams (Guest) on 08/19/2008 1:03 pm
Particle Man: [radioactive material handling robot] Designed to handle radioactive material and to dispose of debris of an atomic nature. Capable of phasing through solid materials and is virtually indestructible due to his specific duties.
Attacks: Can teleport around the room allowing for surprise attacks. Has an electron barrier which protects him from attacks. Can charge and fire electron blasts from his hands.
Weapon Upgrade: ELECTRON SHEILD -- Large, electron-like orbs circle Megaman allowing for protection from projectiles. Hold down the B button to allow for movement while the sheild is deployed. Careful: This drains your weapon's energy at a steady rate. To fire the shield, let go of the B button and then press the direction you want it to fire.
Boonehams (Guest) on 08/19/2008 1:06 pm
Please excuse me from misspelling "shield" several times there. I was in a hurry to submit and didn't spell check. Please don't call the Grammar Police on me.
MattyV on 08/19/2008 1:08 pm
Pickle Man is characterized by his distinctive pickle-shaped headgear and large goggles.
His main power is distracting Mega Man with shiny stickers and quirky pop-culture references.
Once Mega Man has been distracted, Pickle Man's secondary power is a berzerker-style attack involving candy chicks & gummy bears.
MarioRPG on 08/19/2008 1:29 pm
The Man -
-Shoots subpoenas, court orders and charges for jaywalking at Megaman, causing him to take damage, and be unable to jump (or keeping him down).
-Red Tape - immobilizes Mega Man, leaving him open to the deadly...
-Lecture - A seemingly endless stream of musical notes fly across the screen, causing Mega Man to take immense damage, only to give in and become an evil Robot Master himself.
Icculus on 08/19/2008 1:30 pm
One might think that this uber nerd would be a tough adversary for megaman with the extensive knowledge that he would have on him however, due to his backnee, body odor, and just overall lacking any social skills he can be easily defeated by showing him a picture of a boob.
Babaganoosh (Guest) on 08/19/2008 2:19 pm
Just to throw a few out there
Brimstone Man- Basicly the Robot Devil, with a fire-based attack. His level would be a downward scrolling decent with alot of Dante inspired imagry and enemies.
Sniperman- A robotic SWAT sniper. His level would be an urban jungle themed level where randomly a crosshair would appear and try to snipe Megaman. His weapon would be an aimable version of the megabuster, meaning you could finally fire in all 8 directions Contra-Style.
Crossman- A robot Monk. His level would be a giant monestary and the boss battle would be in the Belltower. His weapon would be a cross boomarang, just to stick it to Konami a little:-)
Specterman- We had a robot skeleton, why not a robot ghost? His weapon would make you intangible so you could walk through walls and gunfire.
just some thoughts
Viteh on 08/19/2008 2:48 pm
Peanut butter jelly time Man. Need I say more?
J_B_88 on 08/19/2008 3:13 pm
Nano-man: Robot composed of microscopic versions of himself.
Powers: Nano-man is able to break off into a tiny army of nanoids and "possess" Megaman in order to damage him from the inside.
When defeated, Megaman is able to break apart and enter certain machinery to activate it. He can also attack enemies from the inside and gets a guaranteed health/weapon pellet.
The drawback is that like X's giga crush, it can only be used very few times in each stage.
Imadjinni (Guest) on 08/19/2008 3:33 pm
Name: Force Man
Job: Satellite Repairer
- Force Crush: Creates a warped area that, if remained in, damages Mega Man.
- Force Prison: Fires a homing shot that freezes Mega Man in place temporarily.
- Force Press: Creates a row of blocks with one gap that then falls rapidly.
Ability Gained: Force Crush: Fires an energy ball that sucks small enemies and items towards it.
VaporTrailx1 on 08/19/2008 3:56 pm
Advanced Waste Disposal Robot
Golden Shower - similar to Toad Man's weapon from mm4, but with urine. Causes Megaman to loose self esteem and will to fight.
The Motherload - A giant wad of crap launched at Megaman. Explodes on impact sending shrapnel of corn and peanuts ricocheting across the screen.
Silver on 08/19/2008 3:56 pm
Robot originally designed by Dr. Light in order to have a shape-shifting, multi-task helper at his disposal. More than 70% of his body is composed of clay, which makes him able to conviniently morph at will and become virtually invulnerable to solid weapons.
Clay Hammer: Basic attack in which Clay Man morphs his arm into a giant sledgehammer capable of blasting Mega Man's ass into oblivion.
Spike: Morphing into a giant spiked clay ball, Clay Man is capable of bouncing across the room at hgh speeds, effectively hurting Mega Man in the process.
Clay Shield: Clay Man's signature move consists in trapping any attack within a shield of clay and then repel it back with increased force. This attack is Clay Man's own weakness, as he is not able to repel the melting effects that extreme heat has on his body.
Boonehams (Guest) on 08/19/2008 4:04 pm
Dimension Woman: [reality-phasing robot] Can shift into alternate dimensions and in turn, alter the reality of the space around her. Was designed for exploration and study of different dimensions for a means of better teleportation and transportation.
Attacks: Can teleport around the room allowing for surprise attacks. Shoots a blast that when it makes contact with Megaman, causes several different possible effects (reversed controls, screen strobing to negative and back, gravity shift, and random weapon selection and use). Creates a barrier around herself that when touched, can also cause these effects.
Weapon Upgrade: DIMENSION WRAP -- fires a homing blast that when it makes contact, opens a wormhole in space/time where the enemy is. Automatically destroys lesser enemies and hurts bosses. Can be used on obstructions of pathways and solving puzzles.
Silver on 08/19/2008 4:22 pm
One of the most feared creations spawned directly from Dr. Wily's laboratories, Virus Man reputation as the bad guy of the bad guys comes from the very fact that he is infamous for bringing down entire networks and destroying robots by targeting their core systems with deadly signals that effectively disrupt their defenses. A robot of questionable reliability, he has yet to be released into combat.
Hack: By establishing a link with his target, Virus Man can gain from partial to total control of it, effectively making maneuvering a challenging task.
Shut Down: If Virus Man feels threatened he can effectively make his job a lot easier by sending a signal that will initiate an uninterruptible countdown which outcome results in the cease of operations of the victim. Energy Tanks had not been this necessary before as it is the only way of lasting more in battle and have a chance to defeat Virus Man before collapsing into a pile of useless metallic waste.
Plasma Rifle: Virus Man only physical attack consists in repeatedly releasing plasma rounds that are fast enough to obliterate his enemies.

A young teenager bitten by a radioactive spider who gains amazing powers! Lightning fast reflexes, super-strength and a spider-sense that warns him of danger. With his vast intellect, he has fashioned web shooters for himself that let him swing from building to building and tie up robbers.
But he doesn't need all that shit because he's got a jet pack and he can transform into a tank.
Brend (Guest) on 08/19/2008 4:24 pm
Snoot Man: So arrogant he even refuses to acknowledge Mega Man's presence in the room. When hit by blaster shots, he emits a badly sampled "Why, I hardly felt anything!".
Beating him gives the player a unique feeling of satisfaction and achievement.
Viteh on 08/19/2008 4:45 pm
Mazinger Z: He is THE robot. So big and powerful that there is a next to none chance of Mega Man beating him up. If that were to happen, Mega Man would receive a new chest plate from were he would be able to shoot photonic rays which can melt anything.
TheDoomThing on 08/19/2008 4:53 pm
Here's a good one...
A robot that starts off weak and fast, but turns into a nearly indestructible giant bug beastie.
So, I'll write down some stages:
STAGE 1 (LARVAL):
This is the stage he starts out in, as a grub. He isn't very strong, but he is very fast, mostly trying to evade Mega-man's attacks till he goes up a stage.
STAGE 2 (Nymph):
The boss looks much more intimidating at this stage. Has a pair of giant mandibles on his head, he uses these to pinch Mega-man, and do damage. He can also paralyze Mega-man for about 3 seconds. Also, he has a ranged attack called Bug Beam, which fires 3 small kamikaze ants witch follow Mega-man around for about 5 seconds, then it explodes in a somehow fiery explosion of bug parts.
STAGE 3 (Adult):
This is the final stage of him, this time he has a lot of health, does a good amount of damage, and has a 'doom' move, where he winds up, his giant mandibles open and make a loud clacking noise, and snaps mega-man in a very powerful clamp,therefore, lowering his health to 1 point. Also, he has the same ability described above (Bug Beam), which summons suicide ant bombs.
Also, he is very large in this stage, and takes up a good 1/5 of the boss room. He looks very much like a big stag beatle in this stage, and has wings poking out from its back shell.
Takes place for 20 seconds, where all attacks are numbed. The cocoon is attached to the ceiling, and after 15 secs. its starts to shake, and the next stage pops out of it. The new stage boss is vulnreable for about 3 seconds after emerging.
A one where Mega-man's suit turns mud brown or leaf green, and has wings poking out of his back, and mandibles on his head, and its attack is Mega-man throwing a 'horn boomerang' which spins around in a arc. When he jumps, his wings pop out of his back and flit, and when he double jumps, he can fly for short distances, linked to a addional meter at the top of the screen.
This big guy was inspired greatly by Kafka's masterpeice, Metamorphosis (hence the name), and the general insect life-cycle.
Also, here is an idea for his stage:
A mostly green ant hillish dealo, with the platforms being leaves, and insect-like enemys in the stage.
TheDoomThing on 08/19/2008 5:02 pm
A boss who can create copies of himself, which have his abilities (weakened, of course), but are dissipated by a single blow. These clones can create more clones sometimes, if you let them hand around too long. Also, he has a proto plasma beam, whitch is weak individly but spawns ALOT of rounds. He also has a ability to make a clone of Mega-Man, whitch takes 5 hits to take down. When defeated, he gives a ability to make clones of enemies and even Mega-man himself, to help fight enemies and bosses.
Jake Rock (Guest) on 08/19/2008 5:29 pm
Plague Man... His stage (upon Mega Man's entry) turns from a starry night sky to blood red as the moon changes color. A star falls and turns the rivers red as well. He then brings pitch black darkness to the stage (you can only see his shadow) upon beating the "dark version" of Plague Man's attack, he then rains down fire (falls from the sky veritcally), brimestone (falls from the sky diagonally), and armoured locusts (come at you horizontally)as his attacks. His final attack is to release the 3 of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse one at a time (each with their own attack patterns) before he saddles up as the last of the 4. Truly, a boss of Biblical Proportions.
Zowie262 (Guest) on 08/19/2008 5:40 pm
This Robot Master is an asshole. A huge asshole. Between the high fives, chest bumps, shared flatulence, watching football without any relevant game knowledge and constant shouts of "Whotha man?", you may just find yourself jumping on those damned instant-kill spikes to get away from him.
Attacks: One of the aggressive Chargeman or Quickman style robots that tries to close the distance between themselves and the blue bomber before unleashing a barrage of short-range attacks. Once he's in close, Whotha Man will let go with a series of overly exuberant back pats, toxic belches, and his special attack, where, as I'm sure has happened in any number of the rom hacks you've reviewed, obscene word missiles(also known as F-bombs... get it? huh?) will shoot off in the four cardinal directions.

Sea Man. He is water themed.
Yaanu on 08/19/2008 5:56 pm
Complete with laser gun and glue cannon, STICKY MAN will shoot at you using the glue cannon at your feet. The glue will disintegrate upon contact with air, however, any glue being pressurized (by feet, for example) will instantly harden, leaving both surfaces in contact. The only way to escape from this trap is to send an electrical directly at it, revitalizing the atoms. If you do not manage to escape by the time STICKY MAN con switch weapons, you will be blasted by a barrage of laser bullets. If STICKY MAN becomes close to destruction, as a defense mechanism he will switch to laser missiles, which are much more destructive. To defeat STICKY MAN, you must trap him in his own glue by blinding him with an electrical charge, taking care to avoid his erratic movements. Then you must shoot at him. Remember, when close to death, STICKY MAN will use laser missiles instead of laser bullets.
Heavymetaljesus2 (Guest) on 08/19/2008 6:19 pm
My idea for a Robot Master is HistoryMan.
First he freezes you through historical boredom, then when you're paralyzed he repeats himself and attacks twice with a random Robot Master power.
Johnny Lee Lemming on 08/19/2008 6:30 pm
Let's pretend Capcom really runs out of ideas for Mega Man 13 - The search for Dr Light:
YO-YO MAN: Primary manufactured to amuse kids in amusement parks, Yo-Yo Man whips enemies using built-in explosive yo-yos. Has a huge, round, red and yellow smiling face.
BULLET-TIME MAN: Bullet-Time Man is very clever. Can spawn more sprites on screen than allowed by the game engine. This ability results in major slow-downs which the robot takes advantage from to defeat Mega Man.
MEGAHOUND MAN: Specially built to hunt down Mega Man. Fueled by a special mixture made of human bones and Nike shoes.
FULL MAN: Unarguably the coolest Robot Master in Mega Man 13, Full Man wears a leather jacket and wayfarers. It was invented by Dr Wily in hope to take over the domestic robot industry. This venture turned out a commercial failure after being rejected by Wal-Mart.
MOLLUSC MAN: This exceedingly flexible, blood-thirsty Robot Master is very hard to hit. Mega Man requires the bullet-time gun in order to destroy it.
PELVIS MAN: This pelvis shaped Robot Master defeats enemies using powerful dance moves to the sound of cheesy blues-ish 8-bit music. Beep! Beep-beep! Beep-beep! Beep-beep!
CYBORG MAN: Albert Wily's last creation. Was built in an attempt to save on costly electronic parts. For unknown reasons, Cyborg Man killed the doctor during beta tests (as shown in the intro of the game).
MOSAIC MAN: Inflicts hallucinations and headaches to enemies. Mosaic Man was initially a prototype for the now cancelled 'Mode7 Man' project.
DOOR MAN & GATE WOMAN: An tremendous duo starring the first female Robot Master!!
BRAIN MAN / DR WILY (final boss): This is actually a deformed variation of Full Man whose AI circuits were replaced with Dr Wily's steroids injected brain!!! Brain Man reveals that Cyborg Man, before being destroyed by Mega Man, was in fact a prototype that had Dr Light's brain! OMG!! The anger and the pain mixed with Cyborg Man’s suit turn Mega Man into the fabled MEGA LIGHT!!!
Phaeon (Guest) on 08/19/2008 6:59 pm
Has the power to wear a gas mask, throw his pet Capuchin to attack Mega Man, misquote scripture, and confuse the player with very obscure pop culture references.

My Haxor 1337 Man also can give you the blue screen of death.
Nick on 08/19/2008 7:53 pm
I could not help myself.
Dr. Wily had brain washed PickleMan to do his bidding, can Mega Man foil Wily's evil plan and save PickleMan, or will he fall prey to the brainwashed PickleMan!
Nick on 08/19/2008 7:54 pm

albino kitty (Guest) on 08/19/2008 8:22 pm
My entry would be PC Man, a creation from Dr. Light with Microsoft's Windows XP to fix bugs and viruses and what not in the main computer that Dr. Light has. Under control of Dr. Wily, PC Man now has Microsoft's Windows Vista and thus turns very evil! Basically he looks like a robot wearing a green cloak with one arm that can change into a blaster and has a computer for a head.
- CD Launcher: PC Man fires razor sharp CDs at Megaman. Can shoot at close range or long range. Is very fast and needs to time jumps right to advoid it.
- Blue Screen of Death: When PC Man unleashes the Blue Screen of Death, he goes crazy and shoots many viruses and CDs at Megaman. This has a drawback as it can damage PC Man and lower his health, often used as a last resort.
- Virus Laucher: Shoots a generic virus at Megaman and makes him uneffective for a few seconds.
- Firewall: PC Man releases a firewall that goes across the stage and if Megaman touches the firewall, it deals alot of damage to him, but the drawback is that it is slow moving.
Megaman's accuired weapon upon beating PC Man is the CD Launcher, a weapon so sharp and fast it can cut enimies in half.
Duct Tape Ninja on 08/19/2008 8:49 pm
Glitch Man AKA: Impossible Man
Abilities: Lags the game so much as to where your abilities to react to his attacks, which are never seen because of some glitch, (hence the name) become impossible.
This causes the player to destroy everything in sight and to buy a higher powered system in hopes of beating him.
Leif (Guest) on 08/19/2008 10:49 pm
I'm going to suggest... Cho Aniki man.
Hell, his power is when people see him they will think of the sort of twisted powers he will have and fall to the ground crippled with terrible extremely homo-erotic mental imagery.
GreenPeaness on 08/19/2008 11:08 pm
His pencil thin mustache impeccably groomed, sporting a bright orange and black zoot suit in a thin ray of spotlight, he bellows: "Skibbltybibbltybobbltybopbopbotayotdodododot!I'M THE SKAT MAN!"
Beating him nets you Skat allowing Megaman to assail his enemies with nonsensical strings of gibberish at break neck speeds that throttle the mind.
GreenPeaness on 08/19/2008 11:14 pm
I know what you're thinking, "Hey, twatface, there already is a Metalman." Well shut up your mouth and learn something. This is Megaman's own Jewish cousin, Hiram J. Metalman. A powerful Jewbot who deals in imported diamonds and has been known to own several low-rise tenement buildings in the seedier part of town. You don't really defeat him. Upon entering his boss room, he mucks about in his self deprecating way lambasting modern cinema and rising inflation. He's a real mensch.
Kitsunexus on 08/19/2008 11:16 pm
LOVE MAN - Dispenses man love.
GreenPeaness on 08/19/2008 11:27 pm
Sailor Moon Man
With the mystical power of Moon Crystal Makeup - nah I'm just fucking with you. It's just Neil Armstrong in a sailor suit. You don't even have to fight him. Once you beat his stage and enter the boss room, he slaps you and then fucks your mother, shouting "MOON!"
Jaimas on 08/19/2008 11:54 pm
You people are getting too thematic and not enough Mega Man. My group and I thus submit: Pipe Man.
With his level being a large industrial plant filled with (wait for it) large pipes, Pipe Man is a classic, Mega Man-styled, ridiculous-looking steam robot. He looks appropriately MM-Style ridiculous, as you can see from this really hastily-done MSPaint drawing.
In actual gameplay, he alternates between jumping across the room and flinging wrenches at you, and using the pipes in his room to zip from spot to spot and tossing out his Special Weapon, the Pipe Bomb.
As a special weapon, said aforementioned special weapon flies out in an arc, spitting smoke, before exploding a few seconds later. It also explodes on impact, or when some moron wanders into it. Kind of like the MM5 Napalm Bomb, only it doesn't suck ass.
Jaimas on 08/19/2008 11:59 pm
Also, that's supposed to be a trickle of steam going out the top of the bomb, though I know it looks like a string. We rushed this shit, OK?
Silver on 08/20/2008 12:12 am
Although not much is known about this robot, it is believed to have spawned from the very contents of a website known to the general public as I-Mockery.
From what can be told, -RoG- Man has the ability to create numerous rants and cynical articles for the average Internet user to read at his website. Those without real guts or open mind to face the truth about everyday life in its most crude form will be forever bound to madness.
Blog post: -Rog- Man posts an article interesting enough for everyone to read, but inappropriate for Mega Man's circuitry to bear, driving him to self induced robo-coma.
Mega Man 9 Box Art Poster Giveaway: It is not necessary to say that having Mega Man witness the horrible depictions of his own existence by the hands of some perverted artist will make him step at Rush Jet and fly directly onto a pit, waiting for the moment that his loyal companion runs out of gas so he can fall into his doom, tehereby commiting suicide.
uncircumsizedfacelift (Guest) on 08/20/2008 12:21 am
my boss (i might due a drawing at a later date)
Barr-Berry-N (has two consecutive battles)
first battle abilities:
sonic howl (scream),use of a 'pickle sword',and sets a series of mouse trasps
second battle:after initial defeat,sheds outer 'skin',and transforms into a blue ghost,and hurls blue spherical objects until defeated
uncircumsizedfacelift (Guest) on 08/20/2008 12:25 am
excuse me,mouse traps
i fucking hate making spelling errors
Silver on 08/20/2008 12:54 am
I forgot to mention that -RoG- Man is in league with Dr. Boogie, not Dr. Wily.
Philosophic Armadillo on 08/20/2008 1:03 am
The least polite out of all Wily's robot masters. Door Man's main ability is to throw suitcases at Mega Man. He then has the nerve to go up to Mega Man and ask him for a tip, the amount being directly proportionate to how much damage he deals. If Door Man is given enough money, he will open the door of his chamber, let you walk out, and have his power all at once.
JakeOfAllTrades on 08/20/2008 1:05 am
Location: Straight Outta Compton
Ability: Changes into a group of famous rappers who separate from a whole robot to bust a cap in yo ass.
Ability: Makes it rain blood on you, AIDS infested blood, which will kill you just in time when there aren't any more ideas for Megaman Games. Also has a sonic guitar ability which makes your eardrums bleed.
Philosophic Armadillo on 08/20/2008 1:35 am
A pathetic robot master who only has the power to write about how life is not fair to him. He won't fight back, because he is a wuss. There is no need to even use your Mega-Buster on him, as he will cut himself 20 seconds into battle, immediately dying.
Ability - Journal entry: Causes enemy to fall into depression, and then dismantle self.
Has the face of Drew Curtis. Is able to induce flamewars and distract his opponent by showing pictures of cats, even though this can only be done on Saturday(Caturday). Every so often, the background in his chamber will be altered by photoshop, and then voted upon.
Ability - Internet meme: Shoots out overused cliches, causing enemies to either leave the internet, or give mad props.
Steals other characters' powers, claims that they belonged to him first by editing his watermark into the power. Is despised by all other robot masters, as well as Wily.
Ability - Ebaum: Use enemy's own power against them.
Plastic Bag Man
Extremely light-weight robot master created by Wily in order to ruin Dr. Light's shopping day. He hides in the bag area behind the cash register at his opponent's local Wal-Mart, and once items are put into him, they are never seen again. Can only move when blown by wind. Is kept away from babies, due to his tendency to cover their faces and causing them to suffocate. Can be destroyed by recycling.
Ability - Shop: Grab enemies and put them in sack, where they are never seen again.
Nobody knows what the exact appearance of this robot master is, except for the limbs which stick out of the shell he seems to be encased in. He is invulnerable to most attacks, and will roll around the arena after retracting his arms and legs. The only time he is vulnerable is when he cracks his shell on the wall after rolling, which heals within seconds. When hit with a frying pan, his inside circuits get scrambled.
Ability - Egg Shield: Allows user to roll around for limited amount of time, completely invulnerable to all forms of attack.
uncircumsizedfacelift (Guest) on 08/20/2008 3:03 am
here's the rough sketch of my Mega Man character
(for description,scroll up)
DALI-II on 08/20/2008 3:09 am
Ok,here's my second try.
Basicilly looks like a rocket ship, he can blast off into the air, come crashing down, causing Mega Man a great deal of health loss and can even create miniature versions of him(which are much more easier to kill,BTW.). However, his weakness is after he crashes down he is temporarily stunned.
Ability - Blaster Missle: Allows player to transform into an near-invincible rocket, damaging any enemy it touches. However, spikes can still kill you.
uncircumsizedfacelift (Guest) on 08/20/2008 3:18 am
i might have a full drawing of Barr-Berry-N by thursday,in color,with robot legs (to fit with the whole Mega Man thing)
MallardMan on 08/20/2008 8:17 am
Ok, I can't make nifty eight bit animated drawings, so I'll just text this instead, if Nick doesn't mind that is.
To start off, I think we can all agree that the more complicated and away from the "roughly the same size as Megaman with a simple name that says everything followed by the word man" robot masters we got, the worse things became. With that in mind, I introduce you to Duckman.
Duckman, sporting white and blue with a duck-bill visor and yellow gloves. Duckman has an air stage. He fires a Duckgun which literally fires ducks that go across the screen. They don't home on the blue bomber, per se, but they do vary their straight flight path to come at him. The only way to dodge them is to quickly slide under them as they come at you (we're going plus Megaman 3). The ducks that are fired at you are not susceptible to Megaman's cannon arm, they must be dodged. Here's the great thing about the Duckgun, instead of making the little "ptou!" sounds that most Megaman guns make, they quack. Trust me, the sounds of 8-bit quacking can be redeemed from their Duck Hunter origins.
The Duckgun you get from Duckman is radically different from the one he uses. Instead of firing out projectiles, it functions like the Flash Gun from Megaman 2, ie, it's one shot and continues on until you run out of energy. Here's how it works. Slowly, the background fills with ducks until about a quarter of it's gone at which point, you have a cacaphony of quacking ducks filling the entire background (you are, of course, still able to see the platforms). All enemies on the screen are quickly destroyed by the flock. It runs out fast, but it's tough and it makes lots of great sounds.
Randitobandito on 08/20/2008 8:40 am
Entropy Man was created by Dr. Wily for the purpose of traveling through time; however, the first time this ability was tested something went terribly wrong and instead of traveling forward in time, Entropy Man's body began to age and decay at an accelerated rate, exposing his mechanical aspects through his armor. Though equipped only with an archaic arm cannon, Entropy Man is a formidable opponent due to the fact that he constantly emits a field of entropy, rapidly aging anything in proximity. For this reason, he must be defeated before all of Mega Man's energy is drained.
Upon defeating Entropy Man, Mega Man gains the entropy field, which acts much like the other various shield weapons as it encircles his body and weakens or destroys enemies once they are in proximity.
Randitobandito on 08/20/2008 8:54 am
Here is the accompanying image for Entropy Man:

This robot master is a million times better than all other robots put together.
Seth Williams (Guest) on 08/20/2008 9:31 am
My entry is the moderately infamous Working Man.
Designed for one purpose - filing and paperwork - Wily had his work cut out for him when he decided to rebuild him for his latest Robot Master. Then he realized, "hey... plasma shotgun." And that solved that.
In appearance, Working Man looks like someone took a small printer/scanner, put a tie on it, and slowly built a bureaucrat around it. Spindly legs that end in faux loafer feet, suit jacket styled torso... and faceless head, with a single red eye.
Working Man is actually quite durable, and the aforementioned shotgun has a good spread, if not good power or range, but his trademark ability involves the xerox machine in his chest. By catching someone in the xerox (which involves jumping at them and slamming the lid shut, pinning them inside) Working Man can temporarily blind and dizzy his opponents... and if he manages to hold them in long enough, he can create a short-lived carbon copy of his opponent, complete with all their powers. Needless to say, Working Man is best handled early on in the game.
Alessandro (Guest) on 08/20/2008 9:58 am
Contemporize Man - Based on the hippie from the classic Simpsons episode "The Old Man and the Lisa", this robot's main ability is to throw nickels at "our hemp-smoking friends."
Ralph Wigum in ‘08 (Guest) on 08/20/2008 12:28 pm
I would like to suggest "Global Warming Man"
He would release small amounts of CO2 in the air. Even after mega man defeats him, his effects still cause damage.
Ralph Wigum in ‘08 (Guest) on 08/20/2008 12:33 pm
How about FanBoy Man:
1.Deflect Megaman's attacks by using "logic" to find dis-continueties in previous levels.
2. Super annoy with all kinds of useless knowledge
3. Uber embarrasment will cause megaman to feel shame for 10 seconds.
stevetothepast on 08/20/2008 3:16 pm
well I'm not as artistic as I would like, so there will be no image to accompany my submission,and I did not read the other 100+ posts yet, but I would love to see Mega man try to take down "PICKLE MAN" he has the ability to pickle anyone and anything, when he grabs a hold of mega man, he jars him up and puts him in a cold basement for what feels like eternity to mega man, therefore draining his energy from the vinegar and whatnot, as well as just being bored from sitting in the basement on a shelf next to some SPAM or alpha-ghetti
Vitare (Guest) on 08/20/2008 5:07 pm
Description/Abilities: Basically, it's just a giant stereo, complete with speakers. Only it has a face. And it can walk.
As for it's abilities? Eh..
How about producing high sound frequencies (tunes), which interfere with that pesky blue bomber's system, confusing his movements and ordering him to walk into the wall. Heheh.
Also, it know how to jam. The jamming really hurts. Mega Man, that is.
And er.. Here's a crudely drawn-in-5-seconds pic. Comparison with Mega Man on the right.
Sammyt3hSnake (Guest) on 08/20/2008 5:45 pm
He cusses at Mega Man and hurts Mega Man's feelings.
The Pirate Captain on 08/20/2008 6:20 pm
I am submitting Allyourbase Man, who has the ability to run jokes into the ground. In order to defeat him, you have to use the humor ray.
GUS on 08/20/2008 7:40 pm
Man Man: He is a man themed robot and can do all things a man can, but robotized. It's wack, son!
Phaeon on 08/20/2008 11:01 pm
Has the ability to be free in a hotel, making Mega Man laugh hysterically at the one episode of Extras he watched on a business trip, making him debate on paying an extra thirty dollars on his cable bill, only to go through with it and realize that the show is episodes ahead of him, making Mega Man spend more money on DVD's of past seasons.
Sparkette (Guest) on 08/20/2008 11:08 pm
He wears makeup and lipstick and humps people, and, uh... Whatever other disturbing qualities a ghey manz would tend to have.
Invincible enemy who walks into the room and shouts "hey!!", the only way he can be defeated is by saying something along the lines of "bye", "later" .etc
He keeps spawning evil muffins that attack, what else is there to say?
Attacks with an icecream cone.
As invisible as his name, all you can is try to escape as he pummels you.
-Insert Name Here- Man
I'm running out of ideas, need more stash.
SaveALemming (Guest) on 08/21/2008 12:05 am
Wo-Man- Created by Wiley to befriend Mega Man and then learn all his secrets and exploit them. (Also known as Mega Manette)
Nega Man- He looks just like Mega Man, but his costume is orange.... Yeh.
Capitalist Man- The hardest boss in ANY game EVER! After hours of playing and flipping through issue after issue of Nintendo Power, you find out that you have to zap him with your NES Zapper while distracting him with blocks dropped by that Robot accessory whose name I can't remember while using the Turbo Joystick to shoot those derilict blocks that sometimes unpredictably blast toward you all the while using that Racing Pad to run and jump around Capitalist Man. Now I know what you're thinking: "I have to use the Zapper, Robot, Turbo Joystick, and Running Pad at the same time? That would require four controller inputs!" Well, obviously you'll need to by the four-terminal adapter.
Would it be too much to also suggest that the boss would be a little easier to beat by also using a Game Genie?
SaveALemming (Guest) on 08/21/2008 12:07 am
Crap! I forgot to work in the Power Glove!
Viteh on 08/21/2008 2:53 am
Matrix Man: He would annoy and confuse Mega Man with his "philosophical" chatter to the point that Mega Man will start to malfunction.
The only way to beat him is to state Mega Man's purpose, because there is no escaping reason, no denying purpose, because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist. It is purpose that created us. Purpose that connects us. Purpose that pulls us, that guides us, that drive us. It is purpose that defines, purpose that binds us. We are here because of you Mr. Mega Man. We're here to take from you what you tried to take from us. Purpose.
After defeating him, Mega Man would gain the ability to dodge bullets ala Neo in the first Matrix movie.
bens (Guest) on 08/21/2008 4:42 am
gravity man... his levels consist of heaps of puzzles with switches that reverse gravity, that you have to touch in the right order in order to avoid falling into pits of death, and whatnot. gravity man double jumps everywhere to dodge you, and is always activating switches that will totally mess with you bro. he's massive and yellow, which is why him double jumping everywhere is such a feat.
when megaman defeats him he gets his double jump move which will allow him to get to super secret areas.

MarioRPG on 08/21/2008 10:39 am
(I apologize for quality, it's due to upscaling the sprite)
Non-Conformist Man -
(with trendy haircut!)
- Doesn't even want to follow his creator's wishes of being a Robot Master.
- Refuses to attack MegaMan because "What's the point? It's all going to end for us sometime..."
- Ability gained is Apathy, which has no use. But that doesn't matter anyway... ;)
Angryhydralisk on 08/21/2008 10:41 am
OLD MAN: Made to fool Mega Man into believing he's actually reached Doctor Wily, OLD MAN is the incontinent Robot Master! He uses an assortment of attacks such as...
- Charging with his walker, albeit very slowly, but it has spikes. And we all know how deadly spikes are in Mega Man! He denotes this attack by shouting some old man gibberish ending in "whippersnapper!"
- Spitting his dentures, which bounce all over the screen and explode, sending metal teeth all over the place. Not an instant kill but still does a fistful of bars.
- Sometimes, Old Man will garnish his cane, swing it a couple times, and eventually throw it hoping it will smack that young, fiesty Blue Bomber in his no-good rebellious head. Believe it or not, it does damage. Staggering damage.
- Whenever he jumps and lands, his legs buckle, "breaking" his hip. This gives Mega Man the opportunity to beat him like Proto Man will no do to Dr. Light given the chance.
Should Mega Man defeat OLD MAN, he will get the Robot Master Power of... Walking Cane.
And if Old Man wasn't bad enough, with the sudden surge of female robot masters, there's also OLD WOMAN, the creepy-elderly robot master. Created to disturb Mega Man to no end and make him eat foods he's uncomfortable with, OLD WOMAN's attacks are as such
- Giving Mega Man fruitcake. Not only is these stoic cakes, thrown and laid out dangerous to Mega Man, but they HEAL Old Woman! Talk about revolutionary! It took 20-some-odd years for Mega Man to learn the incredible feat of ducking, now this!
- The Granny's Got Game. Thinking she's still the young fiery rascal of the days of toasters, Old Woman tries to give Mega Man disgusting, mole-y, old woman kisses. Very lethal (And mentally scarring!)
- The Knitting Needles. Old Woman will sometimes knit with two robot needles and make a sweater. Should this giant mass of metal and wool engulf Mega Man, he will be too slow to evade the fruitcakes and old woman sexing.
- However, if you jump over Old Woman in her bizarre sexual advances, she will run into the wall, having "fallen and can't get up", demanding a perfect shot. Inevitably, two robot medics will pick her up, confusing her for an innocent elderly robot.
The prize for Mega Man's hard-earned effort? Wool Shield. Sure you may be a bit slower, but no robot would even be caught dead talking to you, much less fighting you.

My entry is 'Music Man':
-He's capable of rousing large crowds of small-town occupants.
-He is proficient in brass, wind, and percussion instruments, with which he uses soundwaves to damage the nervous system of enemies.
-He is a flashy dresser, wearing a porkpie hat and a red and white suit-coat.
-He is surrounded by several "immature" robots that he is teaching to play instruments and who will attack enemies on his command.
-His weakness is that he's actually a "con-bot" and will pack up and leave town as soon as Dr. Wily pays him for his services, up-front of course.
Boonehams (Guest) on 08/21/2008 11:42 am
Well, maybe I'm bending the rules too much, but how about a boss for Wily's fortress? They're robots, after all.
And since Guts Man (purveyor of all things guts and robot master of Mega Man 1) has actually been perpetually kidnapped by Wily and remodeled several many times for the different games (namely 2, 3 and 7), I was thinking of ANOTHER remodel for the big bruiser.
GUTS BOMBER: Guts Man, now enormous and filling half the screen, has been fitted with the body of a flying craft that floats around the room. His face is plastered on the nose cone of the craft, while the rest of him, more or less, looks like a futuristic jet. He floats in the upper half of the screen and moves from side to side.
There are two exhaust ports on either side of him that point to the ground, allowing him to hover like a harrier jet. When they flare up, they shoot streams of fire down below that hurt Mega Man.
He also shoots bullets out of his mouth and drops bombs from his wings that when they make contact with the ground, they release Metools.
Floating platforms, moving up and down, allow Mega Man to climb to Guts Bomber's face and shoot him in his weak point (the dot on his forehead, as usual).

Description: A wheeled robot made for speedy rough-terrain navigation. However, he went rogue and decided to start kicking dirtbikers' asses instead. Cue body modifications and heavy use of nitrous oxide.
Stage: A huge cybernetic dirtbike track. Duh. Expect lots of evil robot dirtbikers, lots of runaway evil dirtbikes with scared non-evil dirtbikers on top of'em, using runaway dirtbikes as platforms to get over huge gaps and/or past spikes, and lots and lots of dirt and dust.
Attacks: Obviously, he's going to be speeding around a lot, occasionally putting up an extra burst of speed. He may decide to spin across the floor, tossing up a whole lotta dirt and making it hard to see what's going on. He will also toss the wheels on his arms and legs at you, and they'll speed around the room before returning to him.
You Get: Dirty Wheels. This would be a two-stage weapon: Upon hitting the 'fire' button once, you get wheels, and vroom around much like Oil Man's oil surfboard. Much like Oil Man's board, the weapon cancels out if you hit a wall, but you can also use it to double-jump as you jump off of the wheels. Jumping off of the wheels, or just hitting the Fire button again, will make the wheels fly off in the direction you were going, moving up hills and bouncing off the ground, until they hit an enemy or a wall. Enemies will be damaged if you kick the wheels off before hitting them.
Description: A dude in a tie and wearing blackface.
Stage: A beach on some low-population tropical island. Expect to encounter spirits and spirit clouds, as well as burnt-out businessmen.
Boss: Hops over on dee white hot sand with bananas for you. Gives you some for all your friends. His banana flow never ends.
You Get: Bananas. Expect to run out of them, and get a craving for them as you're flying back to busytown.
Description: Billy Joel.
Stage: Hicksville. That's where he grew up, you know. Also chose this because it's awesome that there's a place called Hicksville, and thus it should be a Mega Man stage.
Boss: Yeah, yeah, you get to kill Billy Joel. He's not going to be able to do much, seeing as you're a freakin' robot with a plasma cannon instead of a left hand.
You Get: Turnstiles.

mine is called piece man-he was assembled by a dr. wily who was running out of ideas,so he slapped together parts from all the robot masters from 1-8 to see what would happen,and piece man was born.powers:same powers as all the robot masters from games 1-8.he is very agile,fast,and strategic.the trick is to shoot him while he is planning his strategy but even that is hard because while he plans, he fires from several blasters set on auto mode.

Bald Eagle Man
What does he do? He attacks Mega Man with Bald Eagles. Not not any energy shaped eagles attacks or high tech eagle missiles, just regualr living breathing Bald Eagles. At least they were breathing until Bald Eagle Man tried throwing them at Mega Man and swinging them like a baseball bat at Mega man.
Sure a super high tech robot isn't going to be hurt very much by a walrus, but Wily's got other motives. It's not often that he can make a robot that both attacks Mega Man and cuts down the numbers of any animal on the endangered species list.
What can I say? Wily's evil. EVIL!
Adder (Guest) on 08/21/2008 8:33 pm
Responds to incoming fire by 'teleporting' two meters in front as the shot comes within range. Responds to jumping by jumping back at the nearest wall and slashkicking at Mega Man. Responds to sliding by following suit. At range will fire off Sonic Booms and in close will strike with a Sonic Fist.
Weakness preferably something explosive-based.
You Get: Sonic Boom, weak but fast projectile that should do high damage to somebody light or organic-based. Maybe against a rock-based foe.
See here for crappy MSPaint rendition.

Britton Learnard (Guest) on 08/22/2008 12:03 am
The name of my character is Montage Man. Montage Man is a 90lb weakling with his heart set on achieving the impossible. He possesses no real skill in anything he does, but so long as Survivor’s “Eye of The Tiger” or Europe’s “The Final Countdown” is playing in the background, he’s unstoppable. Mega Man’s mission is not to destroy Montage Man, but Joey Tempest and whoever the hell is the current rotating vocalist for Survivor. Destroy them and you sap Montage Man of his power.

Audio Wave - Sends a wave through the ground causing enemies to be launched into the air and slammed into the ceiling causing damage to them.
Bass Jump - When jumping, a ground tremor is created and causes enemies to be stunned for three seconds or until they are damaged.
Outcome on 08/22/2008 6:28 am
Makes you wait 15 minutes for him to show up.
Power gained: Time-out. Megaman takes a break and all the robots on the screen get tired of waiting and leave.
Moves three times quicker then Quick Man
Power gained: Caffeine Rush. Makes Mega Man charge through all robots on the screen until the power meter runs out.
If you don't beat him in 2 minutes he explodes killing you instantly.
Power gained: Kamikaze. Kills all robots in the stage at the cost of one life.
Burns baby, burns.
Power gained: Disco-inferno. Shoots giant-flaming disco-ball.
Power gained: Nothing. Only robot master with the power to defeat Dr. Wily's last form, so he was destroyed so Mega Man couldn't stop him.
soundtest (Guest) on 08/22/2008 10:18 am
Mockery! Mega Man has always needed a rival robot master that has the power of warping his consciousness.
TRIP MAN's attack is a psychedelic bomb that distorts and warps reality (or what the player sees on the screen). This 'attack' could be in the form of Mega Man seeing after-images of the boss, hearing echoes, massive slowdown, altered and blurred color and visions, and the sort of stuff one would expect from a powerful hallucinogen.
jason saunders (Guest) on 08/22/2008 10:27 am
also,the power gained from piece man is to convert diffrent enemies into one sidekick.
beef (Guest) on 08/22/2008 12:48 pm
how about Dagger Man?
he is dark and sinister, and is always angry. his stage should be something dark, like an dark alley or an abandoned warehouse.
-has spikes on his back which he uses as projectiles
-has a sword for one hand that he uses in close combat.
-can use a dash attack to hurt you, then attack from behind.
when defeated, megaman gains the move "spike sheild", which will defend against attacks and then fire at enemies.
...hey, i tried, right? i will post a sprite of him later.
Mxl5 (Guest) on 08/22/2008 5:05 pm
Vortex Portal - Creates a portal that sucks Mega Man into it and throws him at Portal Man. The Vortex only lasts for fives seconds.
Transportal - Creates portals which are used to get passed obstacles and avoid enemies.
The Fight will go on with Portal Man trying to jump on top of Mega Man and him shooting a Vortex every ten seconds which can be dodge by running the opposite way but the suction will slow Mega Man down.
When he gets to half of his energy, he will teleport Mega Man and himself into a different room which is full of portals, this is where Portal Man will cannon ball himself left and right, up and down at Mega Man by falling through the portals.
Mega Man will get both of his abilities when you finish him. Except Vortex Portal will suck all the enemies on the screen and kill them. This ability can only be used twice before the energy bar is gone.
This will be the weakness to only one Robot Master, most likely a light weight Quick Man rip off.
Evil Toast With Oaty Tentacles Man (Guest) on 08/22/2008 7:12 pm
Name:Evil Toast With Oaty Tentacles Man
Powers:Toast Blast:He shoots several flaming toasts on Megaman.
tentacle rape:He rapes you...using his oaty tentacles.
Make a stupid face:He tries to make you laugh yourself on a coma.
Weakness:Using Butterman Powers on this bastard will hurt him with more power than the normal buster, throwing roll on his way will slow him down, however, roll ass will hurt for an entire week, but the most efficient way to put down with this abondomination is...eating him...
Some Guy (Guest) on 08/22/2008 8:07 pm
I went a step further and made a group of enemies for Mega Man to fight.
A group of grotesque,exaggerated,versions of the video game characters we know and love,The N-Force mainly relies on cheap puns to take over the earth and destroy the taste of every intelligent life form.They are...
Megamega Man-A short,fat,and inexplicably green version of Mega Man himself,who attacks by throwing heavy objects of and shouting various words with the word "Mega" added on them.For example:"Megahuge","Megahat",and "Megamega".
Defeating him results in acquiring the "MegaInsult",which allows Mega Man to shout various insults with the word "Mega" as a prefix.Using it will cause all the ememies on the screen to run off in annoyance.It has an infinite amount of uses,however,Mega Man will be so annoyed by it,he takes damage.
Megamega Man's weakness is "Overweight Hardware".
Angelius Manius-A red-headed step-angel who attacks with arrows that encase whatever they hit in bubbles and shouting various words with "-ius" added to the end.For example:"Hopius","Skipius",and "Jumpius".
Defeating him results in "Bubble Arrow" which allows Mega Man to shoot arrows that will encase enemies in bubbles that can be used as makeshift platforms.
Angel Manius' weakness is "Sexual Innuendo".
Blue Man-An inexplicably blue version of King Hippo from Punch Out who attacks with insanely powerful punches and body slams,and if Mega Man is hit with the latter,the entire screen is covered with the word "CENSORED".
Defeating him results in acquiring "Sexual Innuendo" which allows Megaman to shoot hearts that only work if Megaman is shooting his enemy while they're facing away from him.
Blue Man's weakness is "Eggplant Ray".
Game Man-A giant Game Boy that attacks by randomly shouting "Beep" and "Boop".
Defeating him results in "Overwieght Hardware" which allows Mega Man to use a surprisingly useless melee attack which involves Mega Man hitting the enemy with a Game Boy.
Game Man's Weakness is "Bubble Arrow".
Chin Man-A Robot in winter clothing with an insanely huge chin that attacks with a whip and attempting to crush Mega Man his chin.
Defeating him results in acquiring "Cool Whip",which allows Mega Man to use a surprisingly powerful whip that can freeze enemies.
Chin Man's weakness is "Mega Insult".
Eggplant Man-A Robot that resembles a giant,one-eyed eggplant creature that attacks by shooting various vegetables and making an extremely annoying screach.
Defeating him results in acquiring "Eggplant Ray",which allows Mega Man to shoot a laser that transforms enemies into Eggplants that can be picked up to regain some health.
Eggplant Man's weakness is "Cool
Captain N-The leader of the N-Force,he is fought in three parts.
Part 1:He's in a machine similar to the one Dr.Wily used in MegaMan 1.However,unlike the original one,it gets destroyed in its first form.
The machine's weakness is "Overweight Hardware".
Part 2:During a brief Sequence in which Mega Man and Captain N fly high above his now crumbling castle,Captain N is in the ship seen during the intro to the Skull Castle in MegaMan 2,While Megaman rides on a jetpack Similar to the flying Rush Adaptor in Mega Man 6.The battle is similar to that of a scrolling shooter.
Part 3:On the crumbled ruins of Captain N's Castle,Mega Man and Captain N fight with only thier main weapons.Captain N has a high amount of hit points and his NES Zapper can take away a third of Mega Man's Health in one hit,he's quite a pushover as he falls down every 3 seconds,as well as every single time he gets hit.
Also,I would suggest to fans of Mega Man 2 to look up "Air Man ga Taosenai" on Youtube,Believe me, you won't regret it.

GreenPeaness on 08/23/2008 11:35 am
Jay Sher Man
Morbidly obese film criticbot Jay Sher Man. Has the devastating ability to critique Megaman's independent art films rendering a bad 8-bit sound clip of Jon Lovitz shouting "It stinks!" There's only one way to fillet this fat bastard: make'im SQUEAL!
Defeating criticbot Jay Sher Man equips Megaman with the ability to release clouds of noxious amnesia gas. Okay, so it's not amnesia gas, but it is noxious.
GreenPeaness on 08/23/2008 11:50 am
Michael Richards Man
A bit player in most roles (he was featured in all previous Megaman games, even the shitty X ones), Michael Richards Man lived mostly in obscurity until he co-starred in a low budget cult favorite with Al Yankovic Man who bestowed upon Michael Richards Man his most devastating attack ability: The Fire Hose! Launched into mainstream stardom thanks to the yiddish superrobot Jerry Seinfeldman Man, Michael Richards Man gained the ability to remain beloved and respected no matter how many self-titled projects he produced, playing a bumbling private eye. This ability makes him invincible.
He's quite the intimidating robot master as there is no way to defeat him unless Megaman has previously defeated Black Smith Man. The equipped ability allows Megaman to talk loudly during movies and an aversion to turn off his cell phone in auditoriums, restaurants, movie theaters, churches, at funerals or classrooms. This blatant disrespect for others around him and the disruption of performances onstage by Megaman causes Michael Richards Man to fly into a tirade, shouting among other things "Fifty years ago they'd have you upside down with a fork up your ass!" The outburst continues for a good 10 minutes, during which time you can actually just put the controller down and go make a sandwich or drop the Cosby kids off at the pool. When the outburst resolves, Michael Richards Man pixelates and fades into obscurity, pleading "I'm not a racist! That's what's so insane about this!"
Defeating Michael Richards Man nets Megaman unlimited drinks from The Fire Hose and the ability to offer anyone else one without having had previously found a marble in some oatmeal.
sam (Guest) on 08/23/2008 12:05 pm
Quake man: causes ridiculous amounts of damage by dropping rocks on megaman.
Viteh on 08/23/2008 6:11 pm
Mac Man: He would yap non-stop about why his Mac OS is better than Mega Man´s.
OS Ray: Mac Man shoots a ray which would mess up Mega Man's OS (the Blue Screen of Death would appear), causing Mega Man to be unable to move for a few seconds while he reboots.
Another ability would be his iPhone attack, which will allow him to connect to internet via 3G and teleport himself to anyplace in the room.
Upon defeat, Mega Man would gain the OS Wave. Mega Man will fire a wave that travels horizontally at a slow speed. If an enemy were to touch it, it would mess with its OS, making them behave in strange ways, firing at themselves or at other enemies.
Britton Learnard (Guest) on 08/23/2008 6:22 pm
Originally created by Dr. Light as a prototype law-enforcement robot to cut down on the dependency of Megaman to fight crime. When attempting to capture Dr. Wily, though, the law-enforcement robot was seized and turned into Renegade Man. He has a standard police issued projectile stun gun that was modified by Wily to deliver lethal amperage.
Jaimas on 08/23/2008 8:22 pm
Pipeman Update: He is vulnerable to heat and fire-based weaponry, which cause him to overheat as the pressure gauge on his head redlines. His weapon would most likely be good against things vulnerable against shrapnel and/or concussive blasts.
Schimid (Guest) on 08/23/2008 8:57 pm
Attacks with emotional volatility and cutting insults. This is a unique boss in that when too much damage is dealt, he may lock himself in a bathroom and slowly regain health. This is balanced by the robot's less punishing punishing attacks.
In short, he wears you down.
Defeating Wo Man offers the Wiles Beam, which will instantly charm any enemy robot to your side for a short period of time (say, five to ten seconds). Within this time it will attack all other enemy robots, but be forewarned: if you don't kill the robot before the spell is broken, he'll come back after you.
Schimid (Guest) on 08/23/2008 8:58 pm
Jay Sher Man is fantastic too, only his acquired power should be an "ACH-EM" beam.
puppetgeneral39 on 08/23/2008 10:22 pm
Entry: Dog Food Man
Powers: Bone Bullet - Two projectiles shot from his arms in a wave pattern. You can jump over one then the other when it gets close.
Dog Chow - A sticky substence fired from above. It slows you down and keeps you from jumping high.
Weakness: He's meant to be the first robot master you go after. So you should take him out with your mega buster easy enough. BUT as an added bonus you can use Rush to devour all his attacks and render him useless.
You Get: Dog Chow! A greasy glob of wet kibble that erodes and slows your enemies!
Hugglebumpkinizer (Guest) on 08/24/2008 12:17 am

Ant10708 on 08/24/2008 6:27 pm
Nosferatu Man - A robot originally designed by Dr. Willy to help perform blood transfusions. His unique abilities include the ability to spray vampire blood which has a fast acting poisoning effect.
Tom Foolery on 08/24/2008 10:15 pm
Story: Wily, out of ideas and low on cash, decided to use some salvaged parts from previous robot masters to build, quite possibly, his least competant creation so far. Scrap Man suffers from a bad case of multiple personality disorder and hates burning windmills.
Powers: In addition to possessing the strength of Guts Man and the drill of Drill Man, Scrap Man can speed across the screen on his one tread foot from Napalm Man, but other than that he really has no powers of his own. Towards the end of the fight, his matrix becomes more choatic and he eventually self destructs sending shrapnel across the room.
Weapon: Identity Crisis - A shot of choatic energy that causes a feedback loop in the enemies sub-routines. The afflicted enemies become more erratic with each shot until they eventually shutdown. Best used against Middle-Aged Man.
Neen on 08/24/2008 10:50 pm
Megan Man: Mega Man's female Equivalent.
Dr. Wily thought if she doesn't match him punch-for-punch, at least he'd be emotionally conflicted over being attracted to himself.
Neen on 08/24/2008 11:01 pm
That's supposed to be wouldn't.
Tansut (Guest) on 08/24/2008 11:27 pm
Originally intended to perform an advanced psychoanalysis on Wily's previous Robot Masters, Mad Man goes haywire after a data overload.
Having become the very thing his processors were intended to study, Mad Man is now the latest in a long line of dangerous, and this time highly unpredictable, Robot Masters.
Powers: Having not been built specifically for weapon-based battle, Mad Man uses the data he already collected to create attacks that challenge the mind of the Blue Bomber rather than his body.
Altering the stage at his whim, he'll create seemingly impossible scenarios such as pits you can walk over, reversed controls, spikes that don't hurt you and energy pellets that do.
With no weapon at Mega Man's disposable able to damage him, the only true path to victory is to beat him at his own game. Lure him into the traps intended to destroy you by taking advantage of his obsession with analyzing Mega Man. The only way to beat this Mad Man is to think like one!
Weapon: Madness Modifier
With the Madness Modifier at his disposal, Mega Man can create pits to remove seemingly impossible obstructions or create new ones to trap enemies into a prison of no escape. During certain boss battles this weapon can also act as a momentary distraction to get in a few uninterrupted attacks.
Volcanon (Guest) on 08/25/2008 10:40 am
Senbei Man was designed by a crazed Japanese who was obsessed with the rice snack. He is powered by twin bags of crushed senbei which he replenishes by stealing the snacks of Japanese schoolchildren.
He attacks megaman by throwing chunks of flaming senbei, becoming temporarily invincible by senbeifying, and jumping around the room in a predictable pattern.
Robot Power: Senbeify - Become as tooth-crackingly hard as senbei for a short time, thus becoming invunerable but unable to move. Shots are deflected back at whoever shoots them.
Artur Borges (Guest) on 08/25/2008 11:13 am
A GIANT megaman made out of a bunch of megamans.
He doenst have any attacks, insted, the megamans in his body start to get off and fight you, so you have to fight each one until you kill the last one.
Guy (Guest) on 08/25/2008 2:30 pm
Emotional Abuse Man.
Emotional Abuse Man attacks Mega Man from the inside by hurling sonic insults through the many amplifiers built into his armor. Attacks include telling Mega Man that he doesn't possess a soul, reminding him that he will outlive everyone he has ever loved, and accusing him of genocide.

UNDERAGE GYMNAST WOMAN
After traversing a stage rank with air pollution, obvious human rights violations, controlled internet access, and worst of all, Michael Phelps, Mega Man will ultimately come face to face with UNDERAGE GYMNAST WOMAN.
UG WOMAN however, is able to use her GOLD MEDAL attack, which summons a rain of Chinese government officials who detain and throw Mega Man out of the stage.
Will Mega Man be able to stop this ultra-nationalistic conspiracy and save the spirit of the Olympic games in time?

Mega Man fights his way through a plant-themed stage full of overgrown thorn bushes and prickly vines. When he enters Spike Man's chamber, he quickly discovers that the room is covered wall-to-wall with the spikes that kill you instantly, and dies before he even gets the chance to do battle.
TheSquishy on 08/25/2008 9:31 pm
Premature Ejaculation Man.
Attacks in battle consist of jumping, charging, and shooting before reaching full charge.
He gives Mega Man the ability EARLY SHOT which allows Mega Man to shoot a strong beam before reaching full charge.
But he SWEARS it's never happened to him before.
GreenPeaness on 08/25/2008 9:32 pm
Men Seeking Men Man
Megaman's most inconspicuous closeted foe. Men Seeking Men Man poses by day as a CPA in that nice old Victorian-style house down on 3rd street. No, no you're thinking of the one on Vancouver. This is the one on 3rd and Lomas, near the Metro Court. Yeah, with the purple roof. Anyway, the CPA office by day will serve as his stage. But, as night approaches and Megaman enters the boss room, Men Seeking Men Man lets his hair down, dons sparkle eyeshadow and gets nasty - soliciting anonymous hand jobs in Greyhound Bus stations along the interstate. What a whore.
His attacks are devastating; just one stroke n' poke and it's curtains for the Blue Bomber! But with the power of Jesus Megaman can resist his strange curiosities and blatant erection in the crotch section. Using Dr. Light's (Light, eh? See how that works? Light - Jesus; Jesus - Light. Atta boy) newest invention 'The Good News' Megaman can attack Men Seeking Men Man with the power of Shame!
Upon defeat, Megaman happily equips the power of Men Seeking Men Man's most powerful item, the Cock's Feather - a rooster feather butt plug, a little too readily which cannot be unequipped through any subsequent stages. That Megaman's one fancy lad.
RorekSR (Guest) on 08/25/2008 9:37 pm
He's a heavily armored Robot Master in full Plate Mail that can only be damaged with a fully charged buster shot or another powerful piercing move. He moves slightly faster than Megaman, even though he's rather large and heavily weighed down by armor. He has a broadsword in one hand and a large flail in the other.
He lashes the flail out at Megaman, which get stuck in the floor/wall/ceiling. Then he rips himself toward it, lashing out at Megaman with the broadsword if he's in range.
When defeated, Megaman gains the ability to shoot the flail in a desired direction, and pull himself toward it.
Flail of Fury

He moves slightly faster than Megaman, even though he's rather large and heavily weighed down by armor. He has a broadsword in one hand and a large flail in the other.
He lashes the flail out at Megaman, which get stuck in the floor/wall/ceiling. Then he rips himself toward it, lashing out at Megaman with the broadsword if he's in range.
When defeated, Megaman gains the ability to shoot the flail in a desired direction, and pull himself toward it.
Flail of Fury

A sentient consciousness that manifested in powerful networks and super computers. It penetrated every computer and network in the city. When it reached the terminal in Wily’s fortress, Wily isolated it and inserted it into a robot. The result was Virtual man. He is able to wirelessly upload his personality into any robot with a pinpoint beam of radio signals. When Virtual Man uploads himself into mega man, mega man loses life. When Virtual Man has completed his upload mega man dies.

Posting the sketches seperately because something didn't go through or whatever.

Just a quick reminder to anybody still planning on entering the contest... make sure you post your entries in this thread by the end of the day today (8/26/08 - 11:59pm PST). Looking forward to sorting through all o' these wacko entries!

Far Out Man
Occasionally, Far Out Man will hit Mega Man with a blast of hookah smoke. This will cause the level to turn into a rainbow of colors and tilt left and right for a few seconds, making it hard to move and easier for Far Out Man to attack (similar to the fuzzy cloud effect in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island)
Otherwise, he jumps at Mega Man and attacks with an acoustic guitar.

Does anyone know WHO actually did the art for the original MegaMan, and does it look that bad on the Japanese version?
-RoG- on 08/27/2008 2:52 am
Ok, the contest is now officially closed to further entries, so any entries after this post will not be counted, but feel free to keep the discussions going.
As you can see, we had a lot of great entries, so it's gonna take a little time to go through 'em all. We'll do our best to get these voted on ASAP so we can get the poster prizes mailed out to the winners. Once the votes have been tallied, I'll post the results here, so keep your eyes peeled!
Thanks again to all who entered! You guys rock my pixels.

I've seen the Japanese box art.I'd say it's WAY closer to the actual graphics.Take a look:

Alex Redmond Man:
An accountant working for Doctor Wily, who thought he was signing up for the softball team. His only powers are fiscal responsibility and the ability to run slightly faster than most people in the office.
When megaman defeats Alex Redmond Man, he gains the knowledge of Wily's finances, which apparently consist mostly of robot parts that he gets to write off as a business expense, thus finally revealing where he gets the money to make all those robots.

Doesn't fight you. At all. Actually isn't even a robot. Megaman goes after him in a horrible case of mistaken identity.
Designed as a "Herbal Relaxation" Specialist. Farout Man isn't even likely to notice Mega Man is there until after being attacked. He fights with his a curious and unexplained combination of grass-clipping looking projectiles and a curious smoke that slows down Mega Man's movements and blurs his vision. He's also the only robot master that uses a tie-dye paintjob.
Don't-Have-A-Cow Man. This yellow skinned pointy haired robot master with the odd overbite is designed soley for eliminating livestock (although he also seems to enjoy playing mean pranks). When defeated, Mega Man gets equipped with the Cow Launcher.
Mega Man Man
Robot designed to throw copies of Mega Man. The hope is that Megaman will get overwhelmed by the sheer number of robots shooting at him, or that the player will get confused as to which character he's controlling and get himself killed.

Mockery on 08/29/2008 5:10 pm
Halloween season begins September 1st for our annual "Two Months Of Halloween" celebration. Huzzah!
Also, the Mega Man contest results are coming soon... we're just waiting on a Protojudge to chime in with his votes so we can tally up everything and announce the winners. Voting on a Mega Man contest is SERIOUS BUSINESS. :O
Protoclown on 08/30/2008 1:44 pm
What about Milk Man, Mail Man (postal not armor), and Trash Man? Where were those guys? :O
The visible man (Guest) on 08/30/2008 3:35 pm
Well, the contest's over now (I was on vacation, dammit), but I still have my own, based on one I reated in 7th grade. His name is spike man. No, he ISN'T spiky. allow me to explain.
NAME: Spike man STAGE: Booby-trapped beach
DESCRIPTION: Headless- his eyes are on his stomach, and there is a hole where his head would be. Ejects spiked 'volleyballs' at megaman and 'spikes' them at him. GET IT?!
WEAPON: Spike volley- a bouncing, exploding ball.

Aww, crud, I lost. At least mine is realistic, I didn't know we were going for humor.
Meh, I'll just wait for the high resolution scans, then. Anyone know where high-res scans of all the box arts are?
BloPant (Guest) on 09/01/2008 3:05 am
Thanks a ton, RoG. With all these great entries, I can't belive I won, I had alot of fun reading all of them.
Jaimas on 09/01/2008 1:41 pm
Yeah, same here. :(
Fast Eddy (Guest) on 09/01/2008 3:48 pm
I demand a recount!
just kidding, grats guys.
Tom Foolery on 09/01/2008 7:00 pm
I still don't undestand how a bad sprite edit with a last minute story made the top five, but I am very honored to be considered even on par with the many creative and well-conceived ideas that were summitted. Thank you so much.
jason saunders (Guest) on 09/01/2008 8:25 pm
personally i think tomfoolerys was too much like my idea to win.
argonath on 09/03/2008 12:19 pm

Britton Learnard (Guest) on 09/04/2008 12:35 am
