This article is about the Robot Master Toad Man. For information on his NetNavi counterpart, see ToadMan.EXE.

Toad Man (トードマン Tōdoman) is an agricultural Robot Master that was created by Doctor Mikhail Cossack for irrigation. 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 that brings a strong acid rain to a wide area. Like the amphibian he is based on, Toad Man can jump high.

Video game appearances

Mega Man 4

Toad Man is one of the eight bosses. His attack pattern is very simple. It is also easily exploited, making him one of the easiest Robot Masters in the series. 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 does a great deal of damage, it can be canceled altogether by shooting Toad Man before the attack is used. His weakness is the Drill Bomb and if it is used on him, it will deal high damage, defeating him in seven hits. On the other side, the pattern is the same.

Toad Man is one of the first four bosses. His attack pattern is similar to Mega Man 4.

Toad Man appeared in the episode Robosaur Park from Ruby-Spears' Mega Man animated series. In the series, he had a mouth.

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 Dr. Cossack.

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 Ring Man's number, which appears with Pharaoh Man's number, which appears with Toad Man's number.
  • Toad Man's dislike is Snake Man, where Snake Man likes Toad Man. This may have to do with the fact that some snakes can eat toads without fear of poisoning.
  • 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.
  • Toad Man is one of the few animal-themed Robot Masters, along with Snake Man, Hornet Man, Sheep Man and (from the non-canon PC game) Shark Man.
  • The inspiration for his design was the fact that toads are a sign of good rain in some cultures.
  • The fact Toad Man is hard of hearing if not completely deaf results from all amphibians having poor hearing, if any at all.
