This page is about the Robot Master Cloud Man. For his NetNavi counterpart, see CloudMan.EXE.

Cloud Man (クラウドマン Kuraudoman) is a Robot Master from Mega Man 7 who was originally created as a weather control robot, but was stolen and modified for combat by Dr. Wily, removing his rainfall equipment and enhancing his lightning equipment. Cloud Man has no legs, as he was designed built to hover above the ground using a gravity controller. He can control the weather and create powerful winds to push his opponents, and try to strike them with his Thunder Bolt.

Mega Man 7

Strategy

Cloud Man starts by floating up from the center of the room, then electrically charging himself (invincible while doing so) to fire his Thunder Bolt from that height towards Mega Man. The Thunder Bolt acts as a fast-moving lightning bolt that, upon hitting the ground, creates four electric spheres (two from each side of the Thunder Bolt) that travel along the floor. It can be avoided by jumping over the lightning so that the attack fails to hit Mega Man, or even fails to hit the ground at all.  Right after that, he lowers himself to Mega Man's level, and then casts rain and wind that pushes Mega Man either towards one of the pits or towards Cloud Man.  If Mega Man collides with Cloud Man at this point, Cloud Man will push him away, dealing damage.  While the rain and wind are still active, Cloud Man will electrically charge himself again and shock the floor to create more electric spheres. As the rain and wind's power are higher than Mega Man's running speed, the player may have to slide if it is necessary to avoid falling, while jumping so Mega Man avoids the electric spheres. After the rain stops, Cloud Man starts chasing Mega Man, leaving a small gap below him so Mega Man can slide to avoid contact with him. He then repeats the attack pattern.

His weakness is the Danger Wrap, as this weapon encases him on a giant bubble, floating upwards and eventually detonating, making him fall to the ground due to his cloud disappearing, and restart his attack pattern. However, he is still invincible if he is charging himself. If it is used while it's raining, the rain will instantly stop. It defeats him in seven hits.

Mega Man: The Power Battle

Strategy

Cloud Man's behavior is the same as in Mega Man 7, except there are no bottomless pits in his arena. Cloud Man could be difficult to defeat without the Scorch Wheel, but the Mega Buster is just as effective.

Rockman Strategy

Cloud Man holds Duo hostage with help from Ice Man and Guts Man, and later joins Scorpio aboard his airship along with Yamato Man.

Trivia

  • During his battle pose before fighting, his sprite loses a finger, giving him only four fingers instead of his usual five.
  • Cloud Man is weak to Burst Man's weapon to the point that it is almost comical, able to be endlessly slammed into the ground with only minimal timing required and without a chance of Cloud Man attacking back. This makes his weakness one of the most crippling of all Robot Master weaknesses.
  • Cloud Man does not like lightning rods because, when lightning strikes, the bolt tends to hit the rod instead of the intended target.
  • Cloud Man's weapon is called Thunder Strike in Japan, which is also used in the English version of Mega Man: The Power Battle.
  • There is a glitch in the battle with Cloud Man[1], like with Spring Man and Turbo Man, only instead of destroying him instantly, it destroys both him and the player, and distorts the screen. If Danger Wrap is fired with exact timing as you enter the boss room, it will cause him to fall from above the screen and disappear (the player will not be able to move during this time), two Thunder Bolts will fall from the sky, the screen will become distorted in appearance, and the player will die.
