|This page is about the NetNavi FreezeMan.EXE. To see information on his Robot Master counterpart, see Freeze Man.|
FreezeMan.EXE is a Solo NetNavi from the Mega Man Battle Network series that works for the criminal organization known as Gospel. FreezeMan usually uses some sort of ice attack and can encase himself in ice for protection.
FreezeMan locks up all of the environment control systems around the world, which results in natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, and heat waves. He also leads Gospel in the Net, as Sean leads it in the real world. FreezeMan hides in the back of the Koto Area, manipulating the disasters. He is found by MegaMan and defeated.
Despite his Ice Shield, FreezeMan is very easy to defeat if one has a pack of Elec-Chips; in addition to FreezeMan being an Aqua Navi (and thus weak to Elec), the Ice Stage ensures any Elec-Attack will deal four times the normal damage. The battle can be even easier if the player has the ElecStyle, as a mere use of a charged attack will deal decent damage to FreezeMan and stun him. With enough level of charge, the player could charge another attack, and continue damaging and stunning FreezeMan for the entire battle.
If none of these conditions are met, then the battle can be tricky, as there are two holes in the player's area, and due to the Ice panels any movement will cause MegaMan to slip to the very edge of the area, so the player must get creative to avoid FreezeMan's attacks, specially Icicle Fall. FreezeMan will not move from his original position, making him an easy target. Overall with or without Elec attacks, he can be a rather easy boss.
FreezeMan is the NetNavi leader of Gospel in the anime. He first makes his appearance during the storm occurring in NetCity. He attacks TorchMan in the sewers and almost deletes him, but Mr. Match uses AreaSteal and escapes. Just before TorchMan can get to a jack-out point, FreezeMan appears again and deletes him.
FreezeMan and HeatMan battle once more at the end of the series, and their battle ends with FreezeMan's defeat, avenging TorchMan. FreezeMan, severely injured from his battle, is later deleted by ShadowMan for his failure.
In the anime, FreezeMan is extremely powerful, as he could easily freeze all of Net City and spread ice viruses around. He easily defeated MegaMan both times they fought, regardless of MegaMan using plenty of Battle Chips while FreezeMan relied on Ice Stage. He is a very proud and fair combatant, as he purposely used Ice Stage so that Lan and MegaMan were not forbidden to use Battle Chips, as would normally be the case in Net City. He was also able to fight one-on-one with Bass, although Bass didn't try to attack and just defended himself.
A Zoanoroid FreezeMan appears in episode 9. This Zoanoroid is unique due to the fact he is never seen as a beast. A high rank general for the Falzar army, Zoano FreezeMan was tasked with the destruction of a Gregar base. He succeeded, but in the process sustained a great amount of damage. IceMan found him in his secret base in NetCity, where he reluctantly bonded with the Zoanoroid. Eventually he is found by the Gregar member Zoano StoneMan, and holds him off the best he can, despite his injuries. MegaMan shows up and helps delete StoneMan, after which Zoano FreezeMan dies, turning into a crystal shard left behind for IceMan.
