This page is about the original Slash Man. For his NetNavi counterpart, see SlashMan.EXE.

Slash Man (スラッシュマン Surasshuman) is a Robot Master who was created by Dr. Wily to clear forests for the construction of his secret bases. His design was based on Pluto from Mega Man V- due to this similarity in design, it is likely that Slash Man boasts similar movement speed and agility. In Mega Man 7, Slash Man is in charge of an army of dinosaur robots, but due to his fast mobility and wild temperament, his comrades have trouble keeping up with him. He has a liking for jungle fruits and vegetables, but has a dislike for nail clippers.

Slash Man's Special Weapon, the Slash Claw, is a portable version of a wave-like cutting device used to destroy asteroids, released in the form of a pair of razor-sharp claws on his forearms. He can also bind enemies with a red adhesive substance, holding them in place as he prepares to attack, which when combined with his speed and attacking power, make him a deadly opponent at close range. He is vulnerable to drastic changes in temperature, tending to hibernate in cold winters and dehydrate in hot environments, thus he is vulnerable to the Freeze Cracker and the Scorch Wheel.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

He also had a brief appearance in Worlds Collide, fighting alongside an army of other Robot Masters on the orders of Dr. Wily and Dr. Eggman. He joined a group of high speed Robot Masters-including Metal Man, Nitro Man, Turbo Man, and Charge Man-in pursuing Sonic the Hedgehog. Unfortunately, the whole group found themselves in a pileup after Sonic tripped Quick Man, who had sped ahead of the rest of them to attack the speedster.



  • Slash Man was originally called "Claw Man" by his designer.[Citation needed]
  • Slash Man's stage may have been inspired partially by an episode of the Mega Man cartoon called Robosaur Park, which takes place in a tropical park full of robotic dinosaur replicas.
  • Slash Man's claws may be inspired by the primary weapon of Vega, a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series. This is further reinforced by the fact that Vega made his debut in 1991's Street Fighter II, four years before Mega Man 7.
    • Slash Man may also be inspired by Wolverine from Marvel's X-Men due to his feral appearence as well as having razor claws on both forearms.
