A Comprehensive List of Robot Masters

Mega Man.

No other series has a spot closer to my heart than this one. I have the fondest of memories playing these games as a child (in fact I’d say Mega Man III was one of my first games I ever played), and these games still rank up there as some of the best I’ve ever played. Everyone has, or rather should, play any of the games in the classic Mega Man series. Yes, they’re that good.

Something I could never keep up with though was the incredible amount of Robot Masters the series has. With ten games in the numbered series, a handful of spin-offs, a portable series, and some games never released in America, there are over 120 Robot Masters for Mega Man to defeat. And those are just the ones in the classic series (so not including those in the X, Zero, ZX, Legends, Battle Network, or Star Force series).

Below I’ve done my best to compile an all-encompassing list of every Robot Master seen in what would be considered the classic series of games. I’ve separated out the games I’ve never heard of and the ones not released in America to lessen confusion. I’ve also listed each Robot Master’s name as well as any game they’ve appeared in. Clicking on the RM’s name links to their Wiki page for more information. If there’s one I’m missing or something I’ve left out let me know in the comments. Without further ado…

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.

    Wow! Nice work, I just wished it all made sense to me. Ashamed to say I’ve never played a Mega Man game.

    1. jsicktheslick

      You’re really missing out. They are some of the best titles of the 8-Bit era and deserve to be played at least a short while to see what the fuss was about.

  2. Eric

    Wow. That is a hell of a lot of enemies. I’ll have to come back to this once I play through the Mega Man games.

      I actually thought it was funny (or perhaps coincidental) that I was in the middle of writing this when I read your 50 Games project list. Maybe it’s fate that you should play these games as I write about them. Haha, either way, just enjoy the MM series; it’s fantastic!
