"After rain comes, destruction!"
―Toad Man, Mega Man: Robot Master Field Guide

Toad Man (トードマン Tōdoman) is an agricultural Robot Master that was created by Doctor Mikhail Cossack for irrigation of crops during periods of drought. When Dr. Wily forced Dr. Cossack to fight against Mega Man in Mega Man 4, Toad Man was modified for combat. His Special Weapon, the Rain Flush, is an unavoidable attack based on his original rain-making technology, that can summon deadly acid rain to a wide area.

Befitting his original agricultural purpose, Toad Man is surprisingly skilled in the field of natural science, and like the amphibian he is based on, he also has the ability to jump incredibly high. He enjoys practicing long-jumping and triple-jumping in his spare time, but he is known to be somewhat tone-deaf, and quickly gets uncomfortable when in the company of Snake Man.

Video game appearances

Mega Man 4

Toad Man is one of the eight bosses. His attack pattern is very simple and is easily exploited. Toad Man will hop around the room, trying to land on Mega Man; the player should slide under him to avoid getting hit. He will occasionally stop hopping to attack with his Rain Flush, which consumes the entire area with acid rain. Though the attack deals a huge deal of damage, it can be canceled altogether by shooting Toad Man before the attack is used. If the player keeps shooting Toad Man as he lands from a hop, he will also never use his Rain Flush. For this reason, a lot of fans consider Toad Man to be the easiest robot master in the franchise.

His weakness is the Drill Bomb, which defeats him in seven hits.

Mega Man IV

Toad Man is one of the first four bosses. His attack pattern is similar to Mega Man 4, but he jumps faster.

Mega Man's Soccer

Toad Man is a balanced player that doesn't have his own team. In Tournament mode he is a member of the Cut Man, Wood Man, Needle Man, Dust Man, and Dr. Wily teams. In League mode he is part of the Needle Man and Pharaoh Man teams.

Mega Man (Game Gear)

Toad Man is one of the bosses fought in the final stages. His strategy is similar to Mega Man 4, but he becomes a lot more difficult here due to being much faster and hopping around more erratically, making it much harder to stop him using the Rain Flush.

"We could use some rain...ACID rain."
―Toad Man

Toad Man appeared in the episode Robosaur Park from Ruby-Spears' Mega Man animated series. In the series, his body was aqua green instead of grass green, and he had a mouth with a long prehensile tongue, making him slightly more similar in appearance to an actual toad. He also has flippers similar to Wave Man, and his shoulder pads were green instead of white. He also liked to make croaking or ribbit sounds like real frogs and toads. Instead of dancing to use Rain Flush, he simply fires a pod into the air to generate a cloud of acid rain, similar to how Mega Man uses it.

Mega Man Megamix

Toad Man is a farm worker robot capable of causing rainfall in regions suffering from a drought. His Rain Flush ability is comprised of a two-step process: the environmental preparation, then the actual rainfall. In step one, Toad Man emits a spray of high-pressure liquid. (The liquid in this spray is a special ionized colloidal mixture.) The resulting water vapor rapidly expands and reaches its freezing point in the atmosphere. In the second step, Toad Man sprinkles ice crystals into the forming clouds to force the development of rain. When working on farms, Toad Man mixed fertilizers and pesticides into his rain, but after being modified for combat in preparation for his battle against Mega Man, Toad Man instead created acid rain.

Toad Man first appeared in the story "Grim Reaper of Resurrection", which happens after Mega Man's battle against Dr. Cossack. When Skull Man attacked Dr. Cossack's Citadel, Toad Man is one of the three robots left behind, and he informs Mega Man what happened. He and Dive Man are repaired by Bright Man and they help Mega Man search for Dr. Cossack.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

Toad Man also appeared in the Archie Comics Mega Man series, making his debut during the Worlds Collide crossover event with the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series. As a result of this, he appeared before the comic's adaptation of Mega Man 3, as part of an army of Robot Masters who battle Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, and their allies. He is found fighting against Blaze the Cat.

Other appearances

Toad Man also appeared in the manga Mega Man Megamix, Rockman 4, Rockman: Yomigaeru Blues, and Rockman 4Koma Dai Koushin.



  • Toad Man appears as No. 29 (DWN-029) in the credits of Mega Man 4; this is actually Ring Man's number. Ring Man, in turn, appears with Pharaoh Man's number, and Pharaoh Man appears with Toad Man's number.
  • Toad Man's dislike is Snake Man, and Snake Man likes Toad Man. This most likely comes from Sansunumi-ken, the Japanese original version of Rock Paper Scissors, where Snake eats Toad, Toad eats Slug, and Slug scares Snake.
  • Many players consider Toad Man the easiest boss in Mega Man 4, as well as one of the easiest main bosses in Mega Man history. If the player shoots Toad Man after every hop, he will never attack. In the Game Gear game, however, Toad Man hops considerably faster, making avoiding his jumps and attacking him more difficult.
  • The inspiration for his design was the fact that toads are a sign of good rain in some cultures.
  • The fact that Toad Man is hard of hearing- if not completely tone-deaf- results from all amphibians having poor hearing, if any at all.
  • Toad Man's fire upgrade in Rockman Xover could be a reference to the fire-bellied toad.
