Blizzard Man (ブリザードマン Burizādoman?) is a snow themed Robot Master from Mega Man 6. He was originally created to monitor the weather in the Antarctic, but later his meteorological equipment was exchanged for a machine able to produce artificial snow using the humidity in the air, which he can use to attack enemies by creating ice crystals in his Blizzard Attack. He can also attack by rolling at enemies. Blizzard Man likes skiing and has won three gold medals consecutively in the robot Olympics.
Blizzard Man may move around the screen with his skis, trying to get close to Mega Man and leave him without space to dodge his attacks, so the player must make sure to jump over him to avoid running out of space. Blizzard Man has two ways to attack: Its primary attack is his Blizzard Attack, a small maelstrom of snow flakes that are created and shot at different angles toward Mega Man. Blizzard Man will start moving in place on his skis and snow flakes will form around him, momentarily suspended in midair until they are launched at Mega Man. They can be easily avoided by running to the wall Mega Man has nearer. His second attack is rolling into a ball, then speeding across the screen, attempting to ram into Mega Man. Blizzard Man is completely invincible in this state, so firing weapons at him while he's rolling is useless. Still, it can be avoided by just jumping over him, although sliding may be necessary if Blizzard Man happens to be near the player after avoiding him.
His weakness is the Flame Blast, but it is recommended to fire the Flame Blast's shots directly at Blizzard Man, since most of the time he will be in his ball form if he's actually moving. Advanced players may find it easier to fire the Flame Blast almost at the moment he stops rolling, dealing damage to Blizzard Man when he stops rolling. It defeats him in seven hits.
