|Skull Man DWN 032|
Skull Man (スカルマン, Sukaruman?) is a Robot Master created specially for combat with balanced offense and defense by Dr. Cossack when he was working for Dr. Wily in Mega Man 4, and is considered by most fans the toughest Robot Master in the game. He attacks with shots from his arm cannon, and can generate a skull-shaped energy shield called Skull Barrier for protection. Skull Man only moves or attacks when Mega Man does the same (However, he doesn't move if the player only jumps).
Skull Man showed up in late December during the Quick Man/Tornado man conflict. The skeletal Robot Master had shown himself to be very grouchy and resentful towards pretty much everything, especially towards his fellow Robots in DCN series.
Despite being an ill-tempered prick, Skull Man is actually capable of showing concern for others. The first incidence of this occured when Quick Man had been murdered by Slaanesh. Tornado Man wanted to make up for he had caused by selling himself for scrap metal, but Skull Man barged in at the last minute announcing that Tornado Man alone wasn't going to be enough to get Quick Man repaired. Soon afterwards, Skull Man urged the other Robot Masters to pitch in to find enough scrap metal to repair Quick Man.
- Skull Man's arrival was somewhat foreshadowed by Dust Man, who had mistakenly identified The Red Death as him.
- Due to a humorous depiction of the MM4 Robot Master's weaknesses, Skull Man had been briefly dubbed as "the Snot Bot".
- Apparently has a crush on Shadeki Miyabashin.
