Originally a sheep herding robot, he left that job to work in the static resistance test division of a circuit board manufacturer after one day noticing static build-up on his wool. Being easily bored, however, he considered changing jobs again before he became infected with Roboenza.
Sheep Man only has two attacks normally. His first attack is the Thunder Wool, in which he will jump high into the air and split into four clouds of wool, which will each move to a different location. Then each wool will fire a thunderbolt to the ground that shocks a small area, and the last cloud will launch an electric spark along the floor, and then turn back into Sheep Man. This indicates that the last cloud to move/attack is him; if Mega Man shoots it, Sheep Man will take damage and fall, canceling the rest of the attack. His other attack is a fairly fast orb of electricity that bobs up & down.
On Easy Mode, none of Sheep Man's Thunder Wools create shockwaves or sparks. On Hard Mode, the Thunder Wool clouds have far less delay in-between dropping thunderbolts. The first cloud will also launch sparks along the floor along with the last cloud. Hard Mode also adds a new attack, in which he will hop in the direction he's facing. When he lands from a hop, he will release electric sparks across the floor.
His weakness is the Rebound Striker. It is not only a good weapon for reaching him while he's airborne, but it can also destroy his Thunder Wool clouds in one hit and cancel the attack completely if the player hits the cloud that changes into him.
Players using Bass can finish the battle quicker, as Bass can aim and shoot down Sheep Man when he has separated into clouds.
