Bomb Man (or Bombman) is a Robot Master first appearing in the original Mega Man, where he is one of the robots built by Dr. Light and stolen by Dr. Wily. He was designed for demolition work alongside Guts Man, but was reprogrammed by Wily to cause wanton destruction instead.
Bomb Man is a large robot with a round, black body, red and yellow limbs, and a yellow head with red mohawk. His weapon is the Hyper Bomb, allowing him to produce and throw large bombs that explode after a delay.
In the Games
In the original Mega Man, Bomb Man is one of the main six Robot Masters, appearing last (in reading order) on the stage select screen. His stage is set in a kind of elevated city, with large spheres on top of towers, and explosive enemies roaming around.
Bomb Man's boss room is entered by falling into it from above. His only attack is to throw his Hyper Bombs - up to three in a row - at Mega Man and jump around, usually trying to get to the other side of the room. The bombs cause a harmful explosion when they hit the ground, which can be dodged with a well-timed jump.
Bomb Man is weak to Fire Storm, which deals 4 damage to him, and he also takes 2 damage from the Rolling Cutter, Thunder Beam and standard Mega Buster. Defeating him grants Mega Man the Hyper Bomb, though the bombs have a significant delay before exploding, limiting their usefulness.
Mega Man: The Wily Wars
Like other bosses from his game, Bomb Man appears in the Mega Man 1 remake of Mega Man: The Wily Wars, with no major changes apart from updated graphics and receiving his own stage portrait.
Mega Man Soccer
Bomb Man is one of the available players in Mega Man Soccer, with very average stats. His special is to turn the ball into a Hyper Bomb, which knocks enemies into the air.

Mega Man 3 info card
In Mega Man 3, all humanoid robots known to have been created by Dr. Light at the time are shown on info cards in the game's ending, including the Robot Masters from the first game. They are listed with their original tasks despite Mega Man's card acknowledging that he is no longer an assistant robot, suggesting that they may have been restored to their intended function after Dr. Wily's initial defeat.
