10 Unusual Mega Man Robot Masters

Old-school gamers are getting a gift on Aug. 25 when Capcom releases the “Mega Man Legacy Collection” on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Marketplace and PC.

The “Mega Man” franchise is beloved for its challenging gameplay and infectious music, but even more so for its bosses, or Robot Masters. Each Robot Master from the NES days – the first six entries that comprise “Legacy Collection” – was named (Something) Man, typically linked to an elemental power (Fire Man, Stone Man) or some sort of object gimmick (Bubble Man, Bomb Man).

But some Robot Masters are more strange, for better or worse. Here’s a look at the 10 most unusual bosses from the first six “Mega Man” games.
