|This article is about the Darkloid VineMan.EXE. You may be looking for his Asteroid, Zoanoroid, or video game counterparts.|
VineMan, known as PlantMan (プラントマン Purantoman) in Japan, is an antagonist in MegaMan NT Warrior Axess and Rockman.EXE Stream. One of the Darkloids spawned from darkness under ShadeMan, VineMan fights against MegaMan and his friends as he tries to tear down the world to make it a place solely for Darkloids.
Like most of the other Darkloids in the anime. VineMan.EXE's story is entirely different. In Mega Man Battle Network 3, he was a member of World Three and is the NetNavi of Anetta. However, in the anime continuity, he has no relationship with Antte, nor the World Three. Instead he is a Darkloid who serves under ShadeMan.EXE (Then later Dr. Regal and LaserMan.EXE.) and uses Dark Chips to give him strength.
VineMan first appears as a Darkloid that goes around the Net making cyber plants grow out of control, ensnaring those nearby and draining away their data, including the WWW Navis and Roll. Lan and MegaMan are at first unable to stop him, but they are aided by Mr. Match and a newly revived TorchMan, and together they delete VineMan. The CyberGarden of Doom!
After deletion, VineMan was revived by Dr. Regal along with all of the other deleted Darkloids for the sole purpose of attacking the NetPolice and ensuring the destruction of Control X (which was being used by the NetSavers to help locate Regal's secret space satellite), but once again he is deleted by Wind Soul MegaMan using Wind Racket. The Great NetPolice Battle!
Multiple copies of PlantMan appear as part of the Darkloid army, but they are eventually deleted. Space-Time War
VineMan can use Battle Chips without a NetOp.
