TorchMan.EXE, known as FireMan.EXE in Japan, is the NetNavi of Mr. Match. In the first two seasons of the anime, TorchMan, along with ElecMan.EXE, WackoMan.EXE, and MagicMan.EXE worked for the WWW alongside their operators where they caused chaos for society and clashed with Lan Hikari and MegaMan.EXE. After the WWW is defeated and Gospel rises in its place, TorchMan is deleted by FreezeMan.EXE and replaced by HeatMan.EXE temporarily, until he is revived. From that point on TorchMan and Mr. Match (as well as the other WWW members) become more like allies and friends to Lan and MegaMan, aiding them on several occasions against other criminal organizations and even hanging out with them, though they often wish for the return of Dr. Wily and the revival of the WWW.
List of appearances
- FireMan’s English dub name, TorchMan, has two Robot Masters associated with it: Torch Man from the DOS game Mega Man 3: The Robots are Revolting, and Torch Man from Mega Man 11. Neither are related to him however.
- While in the anime TorchMan was replaced by HeatMan temporarily after he was deleted (but later revived), it was never explained in the video game series why Mr. Match had HeatMan.EXE in the second game and FlameMan.EXE in the third game, yet had FireMan again in the fourth game.
