Lan is a young and headstrong boy, often letting his achievements and victories get to his head making him over confident, leading to his judgement being clouded. He is, however, a sharp and skilled netbattler, bringing unexpected victory against an opponent when they believe they have the upper hand. His impressive show of skill lead him to be recruited as a Net Savior, where he showed an equal talent in fighting when cross fused. He has a short temper, and can easily annoyed by a situation that frustrates him, and often has a foul mouth during these situations.
As the series progresses, Lan matures and gains a level head, no longer rushing into situations over confidently or without thinking and working alongside his comrades to tackle situations, as well as asking and taking advice from others.
Lan is loyal and kind to not only his friends, but most others he meets during his journeys, even his enemies, leading to him making many friends and allies. He is the childhood friend of Maylu Sakurai, who shows romantic interest in him, though he is oblivious to it most of the time. Over time, he makes friends with rivals Chaud Blaze and Raika and the three make a team.
In the original Japanese version of the show, Lan is known to use foul lanaguage when frustrated, a trait he shares with his video game counterpart.

Performed with MegaMan. Lan forms an “armor” of MegaMan on himself, allowing him to fight enemies in the real world with the assistance of a Dimensional Area.
Lan utilizes Double Soul when going up against C.F. LaserMan in the season finale of Axess. Because Cross Fusion already uses up much of Lan's strength, adding Double Soul onto it drained Lan of his energy quickly. Despite loading Proto Soul into his PET with the others, he never uses it.
C.F. MegaMan uses Metal Soul to enhance his strength and durability, allowing him to defend against being crushed by C.F. LaserMan's fist.
C.F. MegaMan countered C.F. LaserMan's Star Break Laser with Torch Soul's Fire Arm.
C.F. MegaMan uses Thunder Soul's Elec Beam to break the ground underneath C.F. LaserMan, causing him to lose his footing.
In an effort to finish off Regal, Lan uses Search Soul's Scope Gun, barely having enough energy to aim. He manages to lock on and fire, but this does not phase C.F. LaserMan.
When Beyondard Dr. Wily begins to pour the Beast Factor into RockMan after the former absorbed Trill's data to gain the power of the Synchronizer in an effort to eradicate it, Netto cross fuses with Rockman in an attempt to save his friend. The result of this was "Beast Form Cross Fusion Rockman" (獣化クロスフュージョンロックマン Juuka Kurosu Fyūjon Rokkuman), which combined the powers of Glaga and Falzer into C.F. Rockman and making him immensely powerful, allowing him to easily crush the Super Cyber Beast.
