"Welcome to my Chemical Paradise!"
―Acid Man, Mega Man 11

Acid Man ( アシッドマン Ashiddo Man) is a Robot Master set to appear in Mega Man 11. Originally a chemist robot who was turned into a stereotypical "mad scientist" after being reprogrammed by Dr. Wily, Acid Man now uses his chemistry skills to do Wily's bidding. He was also given a Speed Gear to boost his combat abilities. His Special Weapon, Acid Barrier, gives Mega Man the ability to generate a shield made of acid that not only protects him from all damage, but also lets him shoot globs of acid at enemies.

Appearance

Acid Man is a stout Robot Master with a disproportionately thin lower body and outfitted with green and purple body armor. His right arm is a blaster and his head, which is encased in what appears to be green gel, resembles an acid drop. Acid Man constantly wears a breathing mask to protect himself from the noxious scents of the acid he uses in combat. In addition, transparent tubes are featured on Acid Man's body, armor, and legs. His feet are split into two digits, one in front and one in back.

Strategy

The fight with Acid Man begins in a chamber with a pool of acid underneath the floor. During the first stage of the fight, Acid Man will trigger his Acid Barrier. This barrier absorbs normal and charged Mega Buster shots and must be worn down with repeated shots. A Block Dropper shot will immediately break the barrier and stun him momentarily. While Acid Man is shielded with Acid Barrier, he will fire three shots in the air that arc towards the ground. Without the Acid Barrier, Acid Man will leap across the stage at Megaman and pause to fire three acid shots from his arm that lightly track Mega Man's position. Wait for him to pause and fire and time jumps to avoid the shots.

The second stage of the fight will trigger Acid Man to utilize his Speed Gear. Acid Man will plunge into the acid pool underneath the stage and quickly move left and right. His position is marked by a large wave of acid that must be avoided as he moves. Once passing underneath Mega Man, Acid Man will jump from the acid and fire a volley of acid shots downward. Acid Man can fire a charged Acid Barrier during the second stage that requires more Buster shots to remove.

Trivia

  • Acid Man is the second acid-themed Robot Master and the third acid-themed boss overall in the Mega Man series. He is preceded by Toad Man, who attacks with acid rain, and Toxic Seahorse, who is made of liquid metal and attacks by launching bouncing balls of acid.
    • Acid Man's color scheme and design are also reminiscent to Toxic Seahorse, possibly as an homage to him.
  • Despite his info being unreleased until recently, Acid Man appears to share quite a lot of similarities with Chemistry Man, who himself was introduced in the animated show, Mega Man: Fully Charged, around the same time.
    • Both are repurposed robots, as Chemistry Man started out as "Mr. NRT," who was a science teacher robot who was fired for being too boring, while Acid Man was originally created to work at a chemical plant.
    • Both their designs include see-through glass-like materials filled with green chemicals as a prominent feature.
      • In fact, Chemistry Man even wears a mask-plate like Acid Man's when he goes into "battle mode."
    • Both acquire a speed power-up from Wily, though indirectly in Chemistry Man's case; it occurs when Mega Man plants a buggy enhancer made by Bert Wily onto Chemistry Man as a means of defeating him.
  • Acid Man's weakness to Block Dropper might be a reference to acid bricks, a type of brick that is highly resistant to chemicals.
  • Acid Man can be seen traversing the chemical stream at several points in the background as Mega Man travels through his stage. Unlike Impact Man, however, he does not attack Mega Man at these points. 
  • Acid Man is the only Mega Man 11 Robot Master that did not appear in any preview videos for the game that were released by Capcom prior to the games' official release.
