For his video game counterpart, see Eugene Chaud.

Chaud Blaze, known as Enzan Ijuin (伊集院炎山 Ijūin Enzan) in Japan, is the deuteragonist of the MegaMan NT Warrior anime series. The son of Shuuseki Ijuin and heir to the company BlazeQuest, Chaud is the operator of ProtoMan and is initially a aloof and confident rival of Lan Hikari, seeing him as nothing more than someone that got in the way. Overtime Lan and Chaud become close friends and work together frequently alongside Raika forming a team of NetSavers.

Chaud and ProtoMan have a very professional relationship with each other, but share an unseen bond that allows them to perform Cross Fusion and become C.F. ProtoMan, known as C.F. Blues (C.F. ブルース C.F. Burūsu) in Japan.

Like his video game counterpart, Chaud is a cool, confident and skilled NetBattler to the point of arrogance, and like in the games at first sees Lan as an amateur and a nuisance before he comes to respect him and MegaMan. Though Chaud is his last name in the video games, it is his first name in the anime.

While in the games Chaud and Lan aren't shown to have explicitly become friends with one another, as the show went on the two come to share a very close bond as they go many ordeals together, such as when MegaMan was deleted after saving ProtoMan from PharaohMan and when Chaud used a Dark Chip on ProtoMan in place of Lan using it on MegaMan, and they faced Dark ProtoMan afterwards. The two begin to work alongside each other with enough cooperation that Chaud is able to send Lan battle chips through the Battle Chip Gate, something that requires exact timing between the one slotting in the chips and the receiver, and in Beast Chaud knew Lan had been talking about him when he sneezes after Lan had mentioned him to someone else far away from him. Despite this, like in the games the two are not shown spending a lot of time with each other outside of dealing with crises.

He has a keen and sharp intellect that allows him to tackle situations and problems on the same level as an adult, gaining him much respect and fear from others. Initially, it seemed that Chaud had no sympathy or cared for others, simply treating them as either pests or business acquaintances, however he can be a kind person, such as when he gave Yai Ayano a piggyback ride as he climbed an elevator shaft when the elevator stopped working, though he proceeded to tease her about her forehead and size from then on. While conducting business for his company BlazeQuest, he shows great respect to those who believes have potential, no matter how small the business, but has also displayed great contempt for those who present things to him that can easily be done within his own company, cheaper and more efficiently. He seems to dislike the idea of attacking an opponent from behind, as shown when he and Lan had to fend off Sparkman to protect Nebula's dimensional converter.

Chaud's glimmers of kindness earned him crushes from both Yai and Anetta, who both vie for his affection anytime they get, much to Chaud’s indifference.

In the anime, Chaud retains his personality from the games, though his respectful side develops much more quickly than in the aforementioned medium. He is the victor of the first series' N1 Grand Prix, defeating his opponents in mere seconds.

MegaMan NT Warrior Axess

Chaud in MegaMan NT Warrior Axess

In Axess, he becomes a NetSaver and gains the ability to perform Cross Fusion with ProtoMan, but falls into depression after giving a Dark Chip to ProtoMan in order to defeat the Darkloid leader, ShadeMan. Because the process ultimately transformed his Navi into Dark ProtoMan, Chaud feels responsible for his friend's suffering, and sets out to rectify his mistake and complete his duty as a NetSaver to stop the villains of the Nebula Syndicate.

Enzan remains an important character after his appearance in Axess. In Stream, he's one of the thirteen people who receive the Crest of Duo, a mark on the palm of his hand that signifies his courage, strength, and destiny in aiding against the defeat of Duo. However, for most of Stream, Enzan is in Ameroppa on official NetSavior business, often partnered with Raul. Also, Enzan and his company introduce a new PET design, which amplifies Cross Fusion ability (and essentially gives both Netto and Enzan new Cross Fusion designs that are carried out for the rest of the anime).

Rockman.EXE: Hikari to Yami no Program

This film takes place between episodes 22 and 29 of Stream. Episodes 29 and beyond are summarized after this section.

In Beast, Enzan is one of the five characters who are sent to the parallel world of Beyondard. Before reuniting with Netto, Raika, and Dingo, Enzan is partnered with Meiru Sakurai. Also, due to the upgraded Link PET used in Beast, Enzan is also given the ability of flight during Cross Fusion via jet-boosters on the bottom of his boots. Enzan remains a very regular character throughout Beast+, aiding Netto in many battles.

"Chaud" (pronounced like "show") is the French word for "hot" (pronounced as "chawd” in the English dub, likely to anglicize the pronunciation). Together, Chaud's name means "hot blaze", denoting his confident, quiet, yet showy attitude.

His Japanese name "Enzan" is a play on words. While the kanji used is "炎山", meaning blazing mountain, the word "enzan" can also mean "operation, calculation" when written with the kanji "演算".


Chaud’s theme, simply called Enzan Ijuin, is an aloof jazz tune that often plays when the scene revolves around the character acting cool and level-headed.
