- "What a waste."
- ―Junk Man, Mega Man: Robot Master Field Guide
Junk Man (ジャンクマン Jankuman) is a Robot Master from Mega Man 7 who was created by Dr. Wily to search for parts that could be used to create robots. Junk Man's body is made from old, scrapped robot parts and metallic pieces of metal held together by electromagnetic forces. Because of his strength and resistance, Wily modified him for combat. Junk Man can concentrate the electromagnetic forces to pull junk near him, using it for attacks like a block of junk and the Junk Shield. His weakness, the Thunder Bolt, disturbs the electromagnetic forces inside his body, thus making his body parts unable to hold their connection and shatter.
Despite his initial appearance, Junk Man is an expert economist in knowing quite much about the field of economics, though he tends to be very passionate about it which usually leads to him becoming a workaholic. In his spare time, Junk Man likes to eat junk food but dislikes both food waste and raw garbage.
First, Junk Man will stomp the ground, holding Mega Man on the ground if he is unlucky to be on the floor when Junk Man lands from the jump, and then junk will fall from the ceiling. The player has to jump before he lands and then the junk should be avoided, if possible. Then he will start attracting junk, invincible while doing so, turn it into a block, electrify it, and then fire it at Mega Man. The junk block is avoided by timing a jump over it. After that, he will jump into the junk in the ceiling, then fall, crushing the block and turning it into the Junk Shield. Junk Man will then jump to Mega Man's current location and fire it at him. The player has to slide below Junk Man so he is where there on the side of the room where there is more space and Mega Man can slide under his shield, or otherwise, he will slide right into it. Mega Man will be immobilized for a moment if he makes contact with the Junk Shield, but the player can get free of it by mashing the buttons as much as possible. Junk Man will then jump three times across the room, once to where Mega Man is, again to the end of the room and then again to the other end of the room, throwing a piece of garbage at Mega Man as he passes. He does it three times. It is avoided by sliding past it. It is also recommended that if Mega Man is very close to Junk Man as he jumps, the player should have Mega Man slide under him instead of running to a blind spot. Junk Man will then repeat the attack pattern over and over. His weakness is the ThunderBolt, and it makes him go directly to the step of jumping while throwing a piece of garbage at Mega Man. It defeats him in seven hits.
Junk Man is one of the six bosses from the Mega Man 7 course.
Junk Man appeared in the Mega Man & Bass database.
