BowlMan (ボウルマン Bouruman) is an autonomous NetNavi from the Mega Man Battle Network series of unknown origin. He possesses the #2 Undernet ranking, and one of the few Navis who knows of Serenade's true identity. He was created from a boss character contest.


While he has a very harsh and tough manner of talking, he's actually good natured and easy going. As his name suggests, he's a bowling themed Navi, who even has a large pin-shaped cannon on his back, which he can latch over his arm.

Mega Man Battle Network 3

BowlMan appears in the Blue version of the game, while MistMan.EXE is in his place in the White version. He holds Rank 2 in the Undernet and appears in the NetBattle Computer from the TV Studio in Beach Street. After being defeated, he'll give up his rank to MegaMan and tell him where to find "S". BowlMan can be battled again in that exact location.
