"Do you want me to cool your head!?"
—Cold Man, Mega Man & Bass database

Cold Man (コールドマン Kōrudoman) is an ice-themed Robot Master appearing in Mega Man & Bass. Cold Man was originally a refrigerator used to preserve prehistoric D.N.A. from dinosaurs at absolute zero in Dr. Light's laboratory before being modified into a guard robot by King.[1]

Cold Man attacks by using spiked Ice Walls that he creates by opening the freezer in his body. He can also cause areas to freeze from a distance. He releases Mokumokumo enemies from his head to slow the player's movement and get in the way. Cold Man is one of the first three selectable bosses in the game. Defeating Cold Man allows the player to select Burner Man and Pirate Man.

Even though Cold Man has a carefree attitude when it comes directly to his line of work, he's often slow-witted and tends to have a slow perception when facing various situations upon sight. In his spare time, Cold Man enjoys both frappentios and shaved ice while disliking the El Niño effect due to it being a phenomenon that causes the weather to become much more warmer than usual.


Cold Man's primary means of attack is creating his Ice Wall, a spiked, rectangular block of ice, and pushing it toward Mega Man/Bass. The block will bounce off of the wall and be destroyed as it slams into the other wall. This means the player must jump over it twice in order to avoid getting hit. After this attack, Cold Man will jump toward Mega Man a tiny bit, then repeat the attack. After a certain amount of damage, Cold Man will start creating Mokumokumos before his attack. These enemies will float toward the player, and will render him unable to jump if they make contact. It is a good idea to destroy this enemy before attacking Cold Man. His weakness is Lightning Bolt. The Mega Buster/Bass Buster and Wave Burner are also fine weapons to use against him.

*Damage values listed assume the player does not have the "C. Attack" (Counter Attacker) item equipped and activated.
*For Bass Buster, the first number is when the weapon is fired normally; the second is when Super Buster is activated. Hyper Buster shares the same attack power as a standard Bass Buster shot.
*For Spread Drill, the first number is damage inflicted with the big drill; the second number is with the smaller drills; third number is with the tiny drills.
*For Tengu Blade, the first number is striking with the projectile; second number is attacking with the slash or dash.

Other media


Cold Man and King's other robots appear in the Rockman 8 manga, but with the exception of Pirate Man, they leave shortly after their appearance.

In the manga Rockman & Forte, Cold Man creates a snowfall in summer from the top of a high tower, and fights against Mega Man. After his defeat, Dr. Wily turned Cold Man into a refrigerator and placed him in Auto's room.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

Cold Man appears in the Mega Man comic from Archie Comics, making his first appearance in the Worlds Collide crossover with the Sonic the Hedgehog comic also produced by Archie. Cold Man appears as part of a large army of Robot Masters who appear to attack Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, and their allies.



  • Cold Man was called "Freezer Man" in his early sketch, and his body was more similar to a normal freezer.[2] His name may have been changed to avoid confusion with Freeze Man from Mega Man 7.
  • Cold Man will gain some health if he is attacked by his own weapon, Ice Wall.
    • This makes him the second known ice-themed Robot Master to regain health from his own weapon since Freeze Man with his Freeze Cracker.
  • Cold Man is one of the few Robot Masters with the distinction of not being able to be defeated using only his main weakness weapon. Lightning Bolt deals 3 units of damage, but uses 4 units of it's energy per use, provided the player does not have the energy saver equipped, in which case Cold Man can be defeated using only his main weakness.
  • Cold Man's weakness is the Lightning Bolt, but Wave Burner can still do considerable damage to him.
    • Cold Man also shares his weakness to electricity with Avalanche Yeti from Mega Man X8.  This makes Yeti the only ice-themed Mega Man X boss to have this property.
  • Poler Kamrous from Mega Man Zero 2 uses an attack similar to Cold Man's Ice Wall.
