"If I defeat Rock, I become a real robot!"
―Matasaburou, Super Adventure Rockman

Matasaburou (マタサブロー Matasaburō?), also known as Fan Fiend in the Mega Man 2 instruction manual for the U.S., is an enemy native to Air Man's stage in both Mega Man 2 and Mega Man II. Similar to Air Man, they have a built in fan and will try to blow Mega Man over the edge of platforms.

In Mega Man: The Wily Wars they appear in Buster Rod G's Stage and the 2nd Stage of Wily Tower.

In Super Adventure Rockman, the player may encounter one Matasaburo before the fight against Air Man depending on the path chosen. Matasaburo can talk in this game, and attacks by pushing a rock in Mega Man's direction.

Matasaburos also have a short appearance in the manga Mega Man Megamix, where several robots from Air Man's stage attack a city and are defeated.

Boufooh (ボーフーウー Bōfūū?) is a giant fan enemy in Cloud Man's stage and in the first Wily stage from Mega Man 7. Unlike their predecessor from Mega Man 2, they can change the direction of their fan. Boufoohs may push Mega Man away or pull him toward themselves, either to inflict damage through bodily contact or to force him into a instant death pit.

Boufooh's name derives from the Japanese word "boufuu", which means windstorm.

  • Due to its placement, when the second Fan Fiend appears on screen in Air Man's stage, Mega Man is immediately pushed backwards, so it essentially offscreens itself very often.
  • In Super Adventure Rockman, the Fan Fiend's data card states that he's a prototype of Air Man, and when first encountered he says he will become a real robot if he defeats Mega Man. This likely means he would be converted into a Robot Master.
