Yamato Man is a Robot Master entered by Japan into the First Annual Robot Master tournament. Before the final round, he was reprogrammed by Mr. X in his plan to conquer the world and defeated by Mega Man. He was first seen in Mega Man 6 as one of the games 8 Robot Masters. He is from Japan.
If not for his short stock of spear tips, Yamato Man would be a difficult enemy indeed. He has two moves: he will either spin his spear and throw its tip, then run to retrieve it, or leap in the air and fire a volley of tips. The first can be dodged by jumping over the tip and Yamato Man as he runs to retrieve it. The second is harder to avoid, as the spears fall in an arc making it difficult to estimate where they will land. Yamato Man will only use each move a maximum of twice in a row, so his pattern can be quite predictable. Silver Tomahawk is Yamato Man's weakness, and can hit him when he is jumping.
