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.

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...

He has an awesome weapon and looks incredible

He has the best music and weapon. - LarryLarrington

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.

Snake man has a cool design and a cool power

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

He's a snake

3 Elec Man Elec Man

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

His electricity powers are cool

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)

He is cool his coustume is cool he is one word cool

4 Cut Man

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

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

I like how he's always making puns... That make everyone else cringe.

It's so cool when he throws his cool scissors

5 Ice Man

Hey metal man person the reason ice man is at the top is because he beat chuck norris before!

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!

Admit it people iceman is #1!

Kind of surprised Ice Man is in 1st (As of typing this), not sure why, I never really knew anyone who really liked him. - Ethlin

6 Shadow Man

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.

Shadow man is a ninja and throws ninja blades and can kick your butt enough said

It sucks he's mistaken for that overrated Hedgehog...

He is a ninja.

7 Galaxy Man

He's easily the cutest, with a cool stage and a badass theme

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.

Mega man 4 is my favorite of 1-10 as I have only ever played the mega man collection 1 and 2 and he is definitely the best

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

9 Quick Man 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!

Firstly, he is an extremely deadly robot master and secondly, he is able to put every robot master to shame with his insane speed
Vote Quick Man for president - ReallySolid

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.

10 Gemini Man Gemini Man

Gemini Man is my number 1 favorite - Chaotixhero

He would look a lot cooler with a cape.

The Newcomers

? Bounce Man
? Impact Man

The Contenders

11 Skull Man

Skull Man is amazing

This guy is awesome, the only downside is his weapon (which is practically useless)

12 Fire Man

Its cool how when you get his weapon you shoot a giant fire wave and have shield around you when it happens

Cool weapon, cool theme, cool robot master.

13 Heat Man Heat Man

He resembles a lighter so that's cool

14 Guts Man Guts Man

He could easily defeat and robot master

He doesn't even need a weapon

Dr. Wily's favorite, lol.

I can't beat Guts Man.

15 Spark Man
16 Magnet Man


17 Crash Man

Well, what can I say about Crash Man? Cool theme? Check! Neat weapon? Check! Great Design? Check! (very similar to Drill Man's, but Crash Man came first, so points for that) Being from one of the best (if not THE single best) classic Mega Man games? Double check! His stage might not be THAT impressive, neither his fight be THAT difficult, but everything else about him is just awesome.

Now I have never actually played the game, but I read about these guys on the wiki a lot, so I know some stuff. I like Crash Man because his Crash Bomber is so fun. His weapon showed up in SSB4, and that's pretty neat. Also, I feel sorry for him because he has bombs for hands.

18 Slash Man

How is this not higher? His fight, while cheap is awesome, his stage is the best in the game, his design is epic, and his weapon is awesome. I love slash man!

19 Sheep Man

Probably the most what robot master. I love it. - TheMaelstromKing

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

So bad it's good.

23 Tornado Man
24 Centaur Man

M Bison: "Of course! "

You are a Man that is Horse and a robot making you manhorsemanbot - MEGAMANZEROSTRIDER

25 Charge Man

He is SO underrated! His stage is awesome (you're on a speeding train), the music in his stage is upbeat and cool, his design is unique and creative, and the Charge Kick does NOT suck! It's incredibly useful for attacking enemies that are to low to shoot, it's the weakness of Wave Man, whose fight is pretty tough, and it's great for beating shielded enemies! IT can even one-shot Mets WHILE they're protected. Give another weapon that can do that (besides the Black-Hole Bomb)!

Nah, Wave Man's fight isn't tough at all...

26 Cloud Man
27 Ring Man

Ring man is so hard but its worth it his design is cool and his power is boss

28 Napalm Man
29 Frost Man

He is the biggest robot master of all time

30 Flash Man

He's cool because he can stop time

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

31 Needle Man

He has a sink plug on his head. also his weapon can rapidfire

32 Wave Man
33 Gravity Man
34 Drill Man
35 Blade Man

Sick design, challenging stage, awesome fight, extremely awesome weapon. What more can you say?

He's literally made of blades.

36 Bubble Man

Cool robot and awesome design.

His theme is my ringtone :D.

37 Air Man

His tornado powers are cool

I can't beat airman - Awesomedude2019

38 Flame Man

The music makes me happy - Awesomedude2019

39 Dust Man

I know people think he is lame but... I don't know it's just somthing about him. His design is cool huge shulder pads the thingy on his head, his buster duz a lot of damage. Dustman is the best!

40 Gyro Man
41 Blizzard Man
42 Knight Man

Knight Man is by far the best Robot Master in Mega Man 6. His inspiration is cool, his battle is awesome, and I really like his design

A medieval knight with a flail and a castle full of booby traps. How can you go wrong?

If Knightman had appeared in any other game, he would've been a top tier. An original design, fun fight and a decent weapon. His only crime was that he was stuck in an underrated game. Should be higher, honestly

If only his fight was as good as his design... - shawnmccaul22

43 Turbo Man
44 Stone Man

He's cool cause he can throw stones

Exccceppt for his weapon.

45 Star Man

He should be one of the Stardroids

46 Plant Man

I love plant man. I think he is awesome in my opinion( I don't like the ending part of his level, though) but plant man is awesome! From his design to his fight, its amazing!

47 Toad Man

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

48 Top Man

Amazing except for his spin...

Top man is best man

I like topman because it almost feels like a joke, but at the same time a well thought out joke.
plus I don't think I've ever died to him...

49 Magic Man

Very creative

50 Time Man

He stops time? Awesome

So awesome I Fainted
