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's primary attack is his Blizzard Attack, a small maelstrom of snow flakes that are created and shot at different angles toward Mega Man. It will be obvious when Blizzard Man is about to use this move, since he'll start moving in place on his skis. Then the screen will darken and snow flakes will form around Blizzard Man, momentarily suspended in midair until they are launched at Mega Man. Jumping over these should allow the player to avoid this, but they will still need to make sure Mega Man isn't hit by the snow flakes rising up towards him.
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, just jump to avoid him.
It's best to use Flame Man's Flame Blast against him, since this is his weakness. Fire Flame Blast's shots directly at Blizzard Man. This is probably the most effective, since most of the time Blizzard Man will be in his ball form if he's actually moving. Advanced players may find it easier to fire the Flame Blast at the walls, which will create a horizontal wall of fire. A full charged Mega Buster is also an effective alternative.
