Bomb Man is a Robot Master created by Dr. Light, but reprogrammed by Dr. Wily. He was first seen in Mega Man as one of the game's six Robot Master bosses. Bomb Man wields the Hyper Bomb for his special weapon. This acts similarly to Bomb from the Kirby series, except the wielder cannot set down bombs as landmines. Bomb Man is depicted as a teenager, being slightly unruly.

Strategy

As you fall into Bomb Man's room, fall to the right side so you can shoot him on the spot first. Bomb Man jumps away from you whenever you move in & hit him at the same time. He will jump over you a few times before he leaps away from you & chuck bombs where you stand. Evade his bombs then move towards him & shoot so he will do the jumping-over-your-head maneuver again.

Bomb Man is weak against Fire Storm, which you will get when you defeat Fire Man beforehand.

In Dr. Wily Stage 4, you will encounter him again for a rematch. Use the strategy with Fire Storm to defeat him faster.

Trivia

  • Aside from lacking a spike on his head and having a more avian appearance, Bomb Man slightly resembles the Sumo Bros. from the Super Mario series.
  • Bomb Man was originally called "Bomber Man". He is thus the first Robot Master to have their name changed. Crash Man is the second, originally called "Clash Man".
