"Don't get technical!"
—Astro Man, Mega Man & Bass database

Astro Man (アストロマン Asutoroman) is a Robot Master from Mega Man 8 who was originally built to work in a planetarium, but Dr. Wily reprogrammed and modified him for combat. He uses his abilities to confuse his opponents so that he can then attack them with either his two orbs levitating around him or his Special Weapon, the devastating Astro Crush. His weakness is Search Man's Homing Sniper as it can pinpoint and home in towards his location quite easily.

Astro Man has a modest personality while being somewhat very shy towards others. He's easily startled and is something of a coward, thus not being very reliable in battle. In addition to this, he is known to be the world champion at hide-and-seek and likes wishing upon stars in his spare time while disliking both cheap humor and old gags.

Appearances

Mega Man 8

Astro Man is one of the four Robot Masters dispatched to protect the barrier to the "Wily Tower", and was placed in a planetarium in the northeast of Europe, possibly Norway.

Mega Man & Bass

King revived Astro Man by using the data he stole from the robot museum in the Opening Stage.[1] He is one of the first three selectable Robot Masters in Mega Man & Bass, alongside Cold Man and Ground Man. He attacks with his two orbs, summons three Shururuns, and uses Copy Vision. Defeating Astro Man opens the stages of Dynamo Man, Pirate Man, and Tengu Man.

Rockman Strategy

Astro Man appears on the Meteorite Surface in Africa with Stone Man, both of them sent to aid Aquarius. He later appears in the chemical plant level alongside Yamato Man and Dive Man.
