Astro Man (アストロマン Asutoroman) was originally built to work in a planetarium, but Dr. Wily modified him for combat, and he uses his abilities to confuse his opponents. Despite his great powers, Astro Man is modest and shy. He's easily startled and something of a coward and thus is not very reliable in battle. He is the world champion at hide-and-seek.


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 virtual-like area in the northeast of Europe, possibly Norway. He attacks with the two orbs levitating around him and with Astro Crush.

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.

Background of Spring Man's stage.

  • There are plans of a robot similar to Astro Man displayed in the background of Spring Man's stage in Mega Man 7.[2]
  • Astro Man can be considered somewhat of a broken character, as his battle becomes extremely easy with Homing Sniper in Mega Man 8. With the weapon, the player can defeat Astro Man before he can do anything as long as Mega Man jumps and then fires the weapon.
  • When Astro Man uses Astro Crush, the "meteors" that rain from the sky are actually fiery, green replicas of Astro Man himself.
  • Astro Man's cowardly personality is not present during his fight in Mega Man & Bass, lacking the pertaining voice files and reactionary sprites.
  • His quote, "Don't get technical!" may be a subtle reference to C-3PO in the movie Star Wars: A New Hope. In one scene on Tatooine, after R2-D2 sasses off (in his beeping sounds, naturally), C-3PO replies with, "Don't get technical with me."
  • Astro Man, Dynamo Man, and Pirate Man are the three robot masters from Mega Man & Bass to not have NetNavi counterparts.
  • Astro Man is one of the few Robot Masters who does not have legs, along with Cloud Man and Splash Woman.
