"Explosion...is ART!!!"
―Blast Man, Mega Man 11

Blast Man (ブラストマン Burasutoman) is a Robot Master set to appear in Mega Man 11. He is a volatile robot with a flair for the theatrics and a taste for explosions. He was originally designed by Dr. Light to create explosions from his bombs, probably for demolition purposes, until he was reprogrammed by Dr. Wily to help him conquer the world and fight against Mega Man. Blast Man's special weapon, Chain Blast, allows Mega Man to toss explosives and detonate them manually; Mega Man can also combine the explosives for a more massive burst.  

Blast Man's stage is set in the ruined remains of a theme park and movie studio hybrid that he has shaped into his personal playground. He added several personal touches, including a number of signs featuring himself as the star of “Blast Man Adventure.” [1]

Appearance

Blast Man is a tall, slender humanoid robot with a black skin-tight body suit that is covered in blue and red armor. His waist is covered with a red belt. Blast Man also wears a helmet with six spikes jutting out from the back, giving it the appearance of a bomb explosion. In addition, Blast Man has grey/green knobs covering parts of his body armor. Two larger knobs are placed on his helmet and attached by a metallic strip, which resemble headphones. Blast Man is also constantly smiling to reflect his insane and unstable nature.

Personality

Described to be dangerous, volatile, and a bit short-tempered, Blast Man is fond of explosives and uses his bombs to create them for his own enjoyment. He also has an egotistical and narcissistic side, as seen when he places images of himself all over his stage. 

Strategy

Blast Man hops around the room while slinging explosives everywhere in his attempt to destroy Mega Man.  He usually alternates between lobbing several bombs in an arc while standing still and jumping high up to chuck bombs downward.  Sometimes he'll also jump around Mega Man and hurl a bomb right at him, kind of like Bomb Man.  Occasionally, Blast Man will use his Special Weapon, Chain Blast, to spawn four floating bombs which will gravitate towards Mega Man and explode after a few seconds.

When Blast Man is low on health he'll tap into his Power Gear, increasing the size of his bombs and giving them greater explosive force while his attack patterns become more erratic. After defeating Blast Man, Mega Man obtains Chain Blast.
