Centaur Man (or Centaurman) is a Robot Master first appearing in Mega Man 6. Like the other Robot Masters from the game, he was built by an unspecified creator for the First Annual Robot Tournament before being stolen and reprogrammed by Dr. Wily in his Mr. X persona.

Centaur Man's design is based on a centaur, a creature from Greek mythology with the upper half of a human and the lower half of a horse. He wields mysterious powers, being able to teleport and use his signature weapon, the Centaur Flash, to freeze time for an enemy, though he can also fire simple splitting shots from an arm cannon.

In the Games

Mega Man 6

Boss sprite from Mega Man 6.

In Mega Man 6, Centaur Man is one of the main eight Robot Masters that must be fought to reach Mr. X's fortress, appearing as the last option (in reading order) on the stage select screen. His stage is the Ancient City, which appears in form of partially sunken Greek ruins, and the title in his boss into states "Ability Unknown", making him the only Mega Man 6 Robot Master besides Plant Man not to have a title with the format "Master of [blank]".

In battle, Centaur Man's main attack is to fire a projectile straight forward, which split into seven projectiles flying off into different directions when it touches a wall. Sometimes, he will use the Centaur Flash before this, stopping time for Mega Man and often guaranteeing that he will take a hit from the shot, depending on where he is standing. To move around, centaur man can gallop across the room, but is also able to phase out of existence temporarily before reappearing somewhere else. The spot he appears in is based on where Mega Man stood roughly halfway during his absence, making it possible to predict and manipulate where he will teleport to.

Centaur Man is weak to the Knight Crusher, which deals 4 damage to him. Defeating him grants Mega Man the Centaur Flash, though it cannot stop time and merely damages enemies when used by him.

Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters

Plant Man appears as one of the bosses fought in the arcade game Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters (and its remake in Rockman Battle & Fighters), where he is voiced by Jin Yamanoi.[1]

Official Data

Mega Man 6

Like the other Robot Masters in Mega Man 6, various data about Centaur Man is shown on the screen after selecting his stage. Although no units are provided for any of the numbers, the numerical range used for the robots' height and weight suggests that they are given in centimeters and kilograms, respectively.

Mega Man & Bass CD

Centaur Man's CD in Mega Man & Bass is found in Pirate Man's stage, which has a water theme like his own. It is buried in an underwater section and can only be recovered by Mega Man using Rush Search.

Related Robot Masters

Centaur Man's ability to stop or manipulate time is shared by a few other Robot Masters:


  • Centaur Man's shape is unusual among Robot Masters, being the only one with more than one pair of legs (unless considering Sagittarius from Rockman Strategy a Robot Master).
  • Although Centaur Man has not appeared in any Mega Man TV series, he and the other Robot Masters from Mega Man 6 briefly appear in animated form in that game's Japanese commercial.[2]
  • The Mega Man 6 Robot Masters are implied to come from different countries all over the world, though their exact origins are not specified. Due to his concept originating in Greek mythology, Centaur Man may represent Greece or another mediterranean country.
