|For his video game counterpart, see MagnetMan.EXE.|
MagnetMan.EXE is the NetNavi of Gauss Magnus and later his daughter Tesla in the MegaMan NT Warrior anime series. Originally a member of Grave alongside Gauss, after the two were arrested, he was taken from Gauss by Tesla, who became MagnetMan's operator from then on.
Like his video game counterpart, MagnetMan was a member of Grave and was operated by Gauss as the two wreaked havoc on the world before he would eventually come under the ownership of Tesla. However, the circumstances of how MagnetMan come under the ownership of Tesla is different. In the video games, Tesla comes to operate MagnetMan after Gauss is arrested, with the two of them later joining Team ProtoMan after nearly killing Lan's friends. In the anime, Tesla forcibly takes MagnetMan from Gauss, with MagnetMan himself resuming his criminal ways with her as a member of the Neo World Three.
MagnetMan is first operated by Gauss during the course of the second half of MegaMan NT Warrior. He and ElecMan have a rivalry and have battled against each other a few times, as do their operators Gauss and Count Zap. He first appeared in episode 34 switching bank accounts, causing Higsby to become wealthy and Yai becoming poor. MagnetMan is later deleted by MegaMan using Aqua Custom Style and a Program Advance due to interference by ElecMan, who is deleted with him in the process.
During the events of Rockman.EXE Stream, he is broken out of captivity by Asteroid FlashMan. His new operator is Tesla, the daughter of his original operator Gauss. He is the only Navi in the Neo WWW who does not have an Asteroid origin. Tesla gained the ability to use Cross Fusion with MagnetMan during the events of Stream.
