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.
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.
BowlMan first appears in episode 6 as a NetNavi in a bowling alley, but a Darkloid presents him with a Dark Chip to help him improve his game. BowlMan then becomes a Darkloid after using it and battles on their behalf. He fights Cross Fusion MegaMan thanks to a Dimensional Area and is defeated, being the first Darkloid to be deleted in the series. He is later revived by Dr. Regal, but he is deleted by MegaMan with Metal Soul.
Multiple copies of BowlMan appear as part of the Darkloid army in episode 32, but they are eventually deleted. Later, an Asteroid version of him appears attacking Electopia, but is deleted as well by Cross Fusion Team members, C.F. MegaMan and C.F. Roll.
Power and Abilities
BowlMan is rather tricky in battle. He will set up pins, then use his Bowling Bomber to knock them down, with both the pins and the ball causing damage. He can also equip his powerful Gatling Pin cannon, and rapid fire a stream of bowling pins.
- BowlMan was one of two runner up winners in Mega Man Battle Network 3's boss character contest. He was designed by Atsuya Shimizu, and originally called BowlerMan.
