Top 10 Mega Man Robot Masters

Mega Man is fun for so many robot masters but which one is the best?
The Top Ten
1 Metal Man

Normally, I'm the kind of guy that have an opinion different from others. For example, I think that all 6 megaman on the NES are the best NES games by far, but many people will disagree by saying that smb3 is better. However, I agree with most people when they say metal man is the best. His level gets the job done even though I prefer Air Man stage in this game. Metal Man stage music is one of the greatest Megaman music even though I prefer Quick Man stage music. He is one of the coolest looking Megaman robot and he have a pretty good fight that can be challenging in hard mode (at least without quick boomerang or ya know). However his greatest attribute is his weapon. Metal Blade is not only cool looking, it's very effective to kill any enemy that can take damage from it. The only problem is that it's actually too good but even then I don't care. Now, to contradict Ice Man fans, I think Freeze man from Megaman 7 is better.

2 Snake Man

Ah, Snake Man. His design is cool. There is not much of a backstory or famous point for him, but that's fine. His stage is fun but a bit hard. The theme music is catchy. When you get to him, he matches you to an easy fight if you have the Needle Cannon. Without it, he may be a bit more harder. Sadly, I think his weapon is only really useful on Gemini Man. I wish the Search Snake can grab items, but it just looks weird when you shoot it as well. It may pack a punch, but for flying enemies, which is like a quarter of Mega Man 3, you are better off with Shadow Blade. But still, Snake Man is okay, and he is awesome as well.

3 Shadow Man

His is the most useful weapon in MM3. I use it more than Mega Man's own weapon after I obtain it. It's also THE weapon to beat all the Skull Castle bosses easiest.
Plus he was pretty cool in the Archie comic.

In the comic, he is an alien robot ninja, I mean, that's kind of awesome, and his shadow blade is amazing, although it kind of sucks that he is weak to Top Man, but other than that, he awesome.

Best song in the game, and really good power up!

4 Ice Man

I know this guy is here because of Chuck Norris memes but shouldn't this guy make a huge decline in the list by the time this meme dies. We are in 2019, and it's still number 2! That being said, Ice Man is decent. His look is pretty simple but effective, his weapon is very cool (no pun intended) being able to freeze ennemies and kill them with other weapons, and his fight is very simple but very effective, and it's in fact my favorite in the game! His stage though, is not really good. The flying plateformes are annoying and it's the first to introduce disapearing blocks and in this stage they are not well done. By the way, why does disappearing blocks reappeared in other Megaman games. I mean even when they were tolerable like in Magnet Man stage, and both version of Astro Man (yes even Megaman and Bass), if they were out of the game I would never have said: «this game sucks because it doesn't have disappearing blocks in it! 0/10! »

5 Cut Man

Cut Man is a great example of world 1-1 syndrome. People use the fact that it's iconic just to justify how good he is. Even then, world 1-1 is a great tutorial for Super Mario Bros. Cut Man isn't that great! I would even go as far as saying Cut Man is one of the weakest robot master in the series. I have to say his design is very cute at least. I mean he looks like a teletubbies! It might look like an insult, but trust me, it's not. His stage is very disapointing. There is not a single memorable thing about it. it's fight could have been really good if he didn't take recoil after every hits he received. Finally, the Rolling cutter is in the category of weapons that are not a torture to use overall, but why would I ever use it outside of Rolling cutter only challenge? Overall, I think Cut Man is overrated.

6 Pharaoh Man

This dude is awesome. His design matches that of a real Pharaoh, his stage is AMAZING (the theme is too), he appears in Archie Comics a lot, and his fight is fun. His weapon has to be one of the top three best in the whole series. The Pharaoh Shot can charge to make a ball next to you that can hit enemies, and it can be shot in multiple directions, I think.

Pharaoh Man has an epic and inspired design, an excellently useful weapon, is EXTREMELY cool in the comics and has a great stage with good music, not to mention having a difficult battle.

Oh and there was that one time on the T.V. show where he SUCKER-PUNCHES MEGA MAN IN THE FACE after the blue bomber attempts to steal his power. Pharoah Man is the greatest.

7 Fire Man

He gets my vote for the best Megaman 1 robot master. His stage is the best in the game, his design is the most creative in the game, and the Fire Shield is my personal favorite weapon in the game. His fight is very bad though! It's one of the worst in the series! It's impossible to dodge most of his attacks until you realize you can just stay in place and jump over his projectiles. Then it becomes one of the most pathetic fights in the series! Basically it's either too hard or too easy, with the pure balance of the two missing. Even then everything elese about Fire Man is so awesome that it doesn't matter.

8 Elec Man

Elec Man is one of the hardest robot masters in the original Mega Man. His music is one of my favorite in the franchise, his weapon is EXTREMELY powerful, and his design looks WICKED. Elec Man is my favorite robot master, and if I had made this list, it would have been a different story.

His theme song sounds extremely reminiscent of the song Faithfully by the band Journey.

Cool theme song (REM - All the Right Friends), awesome level design, nice outfit and also has one of the most devasting attacks of the series (at least to Megaman)

9 Skull Man

Dr. Wily: I need a Robot Master that will be able to defeat Mega Man in one hit!
That one emo Satan worshipper at my high school: Say no more. I got this.

I like his shield better than Woodman's because you can move about without losing it. I wonder what pursuaded Dr. Wily to create a Skull-themed Robot?

His weapon is basically a better version of wood man's.

10 Gemini Man

He would look a lot cooler with a cape.

The Contenders
11 Quick Man

First off, the music in his stage is awesome. Some of the best in Mega Man history. Second, his stage is basically a death trap for those who haven't beaten (The worst robot master in mega man 2 Man). Third, his boss battle is just so much fun to beat, and it really gives you a sense of accomplishment play around you. Easily a favorite in my opinion. Oh, and I forgot to mention the Quick Boo... (Recording Ends. )

Quick Man is one of the best robot masters ever, he matches the same awesomest as Shadow Man, and with all those instant kill lasers in his stage, now that's hard core, and the boss battle is sick, I mean, it's completely impossible to just take him down with the mega buster, I just have to say that Quick Man, is one of the most brutal Robot Masters EVER!

12 Galaxy Man

So, Galaxy Man. You want to be defeated the easy way, hard way or the Milky Way?

Amazing stage, amazing weapon, and he's a little UFO guy!

In a galaxy and solar-system of his own.

13 Guts Man

Dr Wily has a bad obsession with guts man. Sooner or later there could be Gutsman 2

14 Magnet Man

I hate how they always tell you to start with this one. Mainly because of those disappearing, reappearing blocks. I HATE those things and wait till I've got the Rush Jet. That makes getting to him so much easier.

15 Heat Man

Have you ever took him on without the Bubble? Yeesh. I still have trouble with him without it.

16 Splash Woman

Much more than a pretty face and can single handedly do the entire Coast Guards' job!

A success for the first female robot master!

A big victory for women everywhere.

17 Wood Man Wood Man (Uddoman) is a combat Robot Master created by Doctor Albert W. Wily using natural hinoki cypresses.
18 Crystal Man

In the ruby spears cartoon he nearly killed mega man twice, has a lot of authority over cut man and guts man, him and pharaoh man are the only ones that didn't run when mega man took their powers, and he survived his battle against mega man.

This guy is a real bad one on the old cartoon. He became a favorite when I saw him on there.

19 Air Man

Music theme is unbelievably great as is his iconic design.

I beat him in five seconds. It was to easy.

20 Sheep Man

I agree cool design and a good level and gives a good fight but he needs to have a better weapon.

The developers' answer to us criticising their robot designs.

Probably the most what robot master. I love it.

21 Centaur Man

Under-rated and unlikely animorphic android with an awesome unbelievable ability.

22 Napalm Man

Best war-machine ever...I mean just look at him!

This guy is a total beast that is very powerful and hard to beat

23 Spark Man

Spark Man has a great stage, and great music. His power can easily take down one of the hardest bosses in Mega Man 3

24 Toad Man

Canonically friends with Snake Man, so he gets credit by association.

Sure, his boss fight is a joke, but at least his weapon is really useful.

25 Flash Man

The coolest master out of Megaman 2. He also reminds me of Choshinsei Flashman
