Chill Man (チルドマン Chirudoman, "Chilled Man") is a Robot Master from Mega Man 10. He can shoot icy projectiles toward his targets which can freeze them.

Before contracting Roboenza during the events of Mega Man 10, Chill Man's primary job as an arctic natural observation robot was to stop glacial melting caused by global warming. He enjoys photography and uses photos of his experiences in the arctic to raise awareness on the Internet of the importance of nature. [1]

Strategy

In battle, Chill Man runs and slides around firing his Chill Spike in order to either get the player to run into the spikes or to freeze them so he can jump on them.

On Easy Mode, Chill Man only fires one Chill Spike at the ground toward the player.

On Normal Mode, Chill Man fires two Chill Spikes, one toward the ground near you and one higher toward the player, which will hit the wall if evaded.

On Hard Mode, Chill Man often fires three Chill Spikes instead of two when using it. He also has a new attack which has him jump to the top middle of the room and creates five Chill Spikes in a semicircle around him.

Solar Blaze is best against him as it can melt the Chill Spike and still hit him.

Stage description

Chill Man's stage consists of frosty platforms, ice blocks that crack then shatter if jumped. The player navigates from the outside into the frozen facility then back out into the snowy skies. The inside sections combine ice block challenges and a long corridor with an assortment of enemies with two pathways, while the outside sections uses slippery surfaces and ice block challenges instead. 

  • On Easy Mode, many of the ice block challenges over pits are easier due to floating platforms sealing off some spikes, there are less enemies and more generous pickups. Stronger enemies like the Tsurare Stamp were removed completely from the stage to make it easier. 
  • On Hard Mode, there is a generally larger increase in enemies. The ice block challenges become a bit harder, and the inside facility houses many more R Suzies than normal. Several more enemies appear such as Sprinklan and Cargou Q to make platforming harder. The final outside section has more Garinkous and Swalloweggs to try and make the player fall down the pit, along with a Oshitsu Osarettsu before the boss shutter.

Trivia

  • Chill Man and Pump Man are the only Robot Masters in Mega Man 10 to have faces, as the others just have black slits with eyes in.
  • Chill Man's name is written as "Chilled Man" in Japanese, but his name is written as Chill Man in the Japanese version of the game, and was most likely done to conserve space in the stage selection menu. Bomb Man has a similar issue, his name being written as "Bomb Man" in all games he appears (including Japanese games) while his name translates as "Bomber Man", which was only used in Mega Man's Soccer.
  • Chill Man's pose for Mega Man 10 artwork is very similar to Tornado Man's pose for Mega Man 9 artwork, only with his hands in different positions.
  • Chill Man is the first known ice themed Robot Master to have at least one buster. The others have hands and snow gloves.
  • Chill Man resembles Mr. Freeze from the Batman franchise.
