    I'd hate to say it, but I find that MM9 Splash Woman's design was pretty bland and the only good thing going for her is fanservice, which is why I kinda eyeballed at the revealing.

    Top Man's ability has one, and just one utility: Kill the Final Boss fast! Yes, exactly! Try to jump and spin right in the face.

    I would put Clown Man and Grenade Man just for their ridiculous voice

    Oh, you guys have the Top Spin all wrong:
  • BladedFalcon - July 23, 2012 5:51 p.m.

    Having to go out of your way to learn a way to time how and where you hit enemies in order for this weapon to be kinda effective further proves just how sucky it is. Just because someone took the time an effort to find an use for the weapon doesn't actually make it good.
  • infestedandy - July 23, 2012 6:47 p.m.

    The top spin was never the worst weapon in the Mega Man series. Trust me, there are far more worthless powers. For me, whenever I play a Mega Man game, I try and beat everyone with just my Mega Buster. I know, it's a ton harder but I enjoy the challenge and then use their weakness when the bosses appear again in the final Wily Stage. Sometimes, though, I have to use powers because bosses are too ridiculous. Remember the retro bosses from Mega Man 3? Perhaps when you have to fight Air Man from Mega Man 2 again? That fight is insane with the Mega Buster. He isn't easy to dodge and he has WAY more health than Air Man ever did.

    Centaur Man escapes further ridicule...
  • Japanjack - July 23, 2012 2:05 p.m.

    I completely expected Sheepman for #1, is that just too obvious?
  • GR_LucasSullivan - July 23, 2012 2:37 p.m.

    Heh, yeah. I felt like given how many options they had to run through in terms of electricity themes - Elec, Spark, Bright, Plug Man, etc - having one based on static electricity was pretty clever. Dying from the static shock of a pink puff of wool is also super humiliating.
  • BladedFalcon - July 23, 2012 2:02 p.m.

    Pump man is silly, yes... but I honestly think BubbleMan is even sillier... I mean, he attacks you with bubbles! nothing but fucking bubbles! as ridiculous and silly as all of the attacks and weapons all of the robots on this list use, I can't really believe bubbles could be more threatening...
  • zombi3grim - July 23, 2012 12:52 p.m.

    Oh Mega-Man...where would we be without you.
  • FoxdenRacing - July 23, 2012 12:38 p.m.

    Thanks for the laugh, GR. I love the blue bomber, but not so much that I can't laugh at the 'What was Wily thinking?' robot masters. The only one I'd offer off the top of my head is Toad Man. He just hops. Ineffectively. And occasionally poots acid rain.
  • shawksta - July 23, 2012 12:08 p.m.

    Impressed that there were worser people than Sheep Man
  • infestedandy - July 23, 2012 11:55 a.m.

    Haha, nice list. However, being the huge Mega Man fan that I am, I think you could have done better! As soon as I saw this article I immediately knew that Sheep Man (MM10) would be the number one boss. To my surprise, Pump Man took the top spot and Sheep Man was nowhere to be seen. Don't get me wrong, Pump Man deserves to be on this list, but Sheep Man even more so. In your defense, there's a lot of ridiculous Mega Man bosses, but something like Sheep Man simply can't be omitted. Dive Man, Toad Man and Hard Man are pretty bad too, lol.
  • BladedFalcon - July 23, 2012 2:06 p.m.

    The be fair though, as stupid as sheep-man's design is, at least his form of attack is intimidating enough. Doesn't matter if thunders coming out from clumps of wool is ludicrous, but a thunder is a thunder, and those fuckers are dangerous.
  • infestedandy - July 23, 2012 6:38 p.m.

    Nah, he's not going by attack patterns or how dangerous they are. We're just talking ridiculous design, otherwise we might have a whole new list, lol.
  • BladedFalcon - July 23, 2012 8:29 p.m.

    Well, he did take the lameness of their attacks into account when it came to the descriptions. Dust man is lame cause he throws garbage at you, strike man is lame cause he throws baseballs at you, pump man is lame cause he uses puny water droplets as a shield, and such. Hence, you can't really say sheep man is lame because... he throws fucking static created thunders at you. I mean, again, yes, his design is silly, but like he stated in another comment, using the idea of static as the basis for the electric boss of this particular game was clever... even if they could have used a better design and name.
  • GR_LucasSullivan - July 23, 2012 2:41 p.m.

    C'mon now! Dive Man was rad! Anyone who shoots homing missiles is cool in my book. You're definitely right about Hard Man - come to think of it, I have no idea what's he even supposed to be.
  • BladedFalcon - July 23, 2012 5:44 p.m.

    He's made of hard material, and he hits hard. Obviously. His concept is stupid, but at least he kinda represents more of a danger than the other ones in this list. But who am I kidding? Only reason I'm defending him is because I love his stage's theme.
