Komuso Man (コムソウマン Komusouman) is one of the seven powerful Robot Masters known as the Dimensions led by Rockman Shadow, who traveled from the future with the purpose of destroying the world in Rockman & Forte: Mirai Kara no Chousensha. Komuso Man's design was based on that of a Komusō, a mendicant monastic.

Kosumo Man attacks by making invincible doubles of himself, which go to the top of the screen and each of the three Komuso Men fire three projectiles downward in different directions. He can also conjure four fire pillars when standing in the center of the screen. Komuso Man is weak against Aircon Man's Barrier Wind and Forte Cyclone. Konro Man's Flame Shower and Flame Mixer are also effective, rapidly decreasing his life.

Trivia

  • The komuso were a group of mendicant monks (monks who relied solely on charity to survive) in Japan that thrived in during the Edo period of 1600-1868. The straw basket they wore on their head (called a tengai or tengui) that can be seen worn by Komuso Man indicated the absence of a specific ego. The flute Komuso Man played is a shakuhachi, a type of Japanese bamboo flute, were used to play songs used during meditation to help attain enlightenment. Due to their obfuscated identities and ability to freely travel throughout Japan unhindered by travel restrictions by government regulations, their disguise was also used by warriors and assassins such as ninja and hitokiri to conduct their activities and maintain an underground contact network for their clients and allies.
  • Komuso Man’s stage music is an 8-bit version of Tengu Man's stage music from Mega Man & Bass.
  • Komuso Man is named Doppler Man (ドップラーマン) in his concept art.
