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.

He got my vote for best robot master in 2. Great design, best stage in the game, and great music. I'm not a fan of his fight though. It's cool to watch because of the conveyor belt, but I don't like the pattern of his blades. That's the thing with me: on one hand I'm not good at fighting Metal Man (on hard mode at least), but on the other hand I never understood why burner man is consider too hard. Also, his weapon highlight one of Megaman 2 biggest weaknesses: the weapon selection being the worst Megaman weapon selection in the franchise besides x7, and maybe x6. The reason for that is not only most weapons being boring or useless, but also most weapons are overshadowed by Metal Man's weapon: the metal blade. Personally, I don't like this, even though it's kind of fun to use because of that. I love the sound effect especially.

This guy has the most effective weapon in ANY Mega Man game. I use it through most of the remainder of the game after obtaining it. It's the most effective weapon to use on Bubble Man, Flash Man, Dr. Wily's big vehicle in the first battle at the end, those wall thingies and even himself. Have you ever used his own weapon on him in your rematch at the Game's end? One hit, bam. He's through.

I like him, but Quick Man is better. His design is cool because it is taken from Optimus Prime, his stage is a bit hard but fun. When you get to him, however, his fight is simple. He throws a bunch of metal blades I think but when you see him back at Wily Castle, he takes an insta-kill from his OWN WEAPON! Speaking of them, the metal blades... Well... You knew that...

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.

I enjoyed Snake Man quite a bit. I love his design, it's very original! His stage is great, and his weapon is surprisingly usefull because of the level-design convincing you to use this weapon. His fight though, I'm not a big fan of, and I don't know exactly why. He is very good overall though.

Let's see...
-Awesome stage
-Awesome music
-Awesome design
-Useful weapon
-Challenging fight
Yep, he's got everything.

The only problem is the end of his stage, with those cloud platforms that have the bad collision.

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!

Ninjas are the coolest

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! »

There's two things that can defeat chuck norris: bruce lee and cold weather because chuck norris is a texan and everyone from Texas can't stand cold weather. this is not a stereotype I'm from Texas and we texans hate the cold. So after chuck norris killed all of ice mans freinds, ice man got revenge and defeated chuck norris with negative infintity cold weather. man that movie was epic!

Quick man is a ripoff of flash
Metal man is easy
Shadow man weakened to TOP SPIN!
Elec man is a ripoff of lighting
Snake man is weaird
Pharoah man fans you watch too much of the mega man show!

Iceman is powerful and cute at the same time.
I love ice man and he deserves to be on 1st place on the list!

5 Cut Man

This little guy is good to start with for beginners. but I like to handle Gutsman first so I can throw those 2 blocks at him and beat him ( I usually start with Fire Man because his weapon is so useful, then get Bomb Man, because I can't beat Guts man without the bomb).
He must be one of Dr. Wily's favorites on the '90s cartoon because he recruits him and Guts man along with Proto man for his capers in EVERY episode.

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.

He's a funny and well designed character. He's also a great robot master to fight first.

Everybody knows this guy. I mean, he's the most iconic robot master of all time besides Metal Man

6 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.

The very first robot master I ever fought in the series, ever.

Cool weapon, cool theme, cool robot master.

Good weapon, questionable name.

7 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)

8 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.

This guy! THIS GUY! Ooh boy! He is so cool! I love the design, the stage, the music, the fight, and HE IS A PHARAOH! And you get the Balloon item in his stage as a secret, so daz cool too

Very cool design, but I wish that he was in a better game in the series.

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.

He kind of reminds me of Sans.

10 Gemini Man

He would look a lot cooler with a cape.

Iconic and memorable

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!

By the way, Metal Man is not my favorite robot master on Mega Man 2. Because it is this guy! He is built from Elec Man parts and he is also not so heavy, which means he can go SUPPPERRR FAST! His stage is challenging, but using the Time Stopper is no biggy. The fight is okay, and his weapon I thought sucked at first, but then I found out it was strong and has twice the ammo of the Metal Blade.

Overrated. Themes not nearly as good as others in 2 (Bubble man Flash man Metal man), yeah he's hard but isn't worth the weapon. Never really cared about him.

12 Guts Man

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

He is well designed

I can't beat Guts Man.

13 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.

14 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.

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.

The first female robot master!

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

So bad it's good.

19 Air Man

Music theme is unbelievably great as is his iconic design.

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

I can't beat airman

20 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.

I love this dude

He is awesome

21 Centaur Man

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

M Bison: "Of course! "

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 Needle Man
25 Flash Man

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