SwordMan's Emblem

He appears late in the series as a Darkloid. SwordMan has a split personality, and it is different depending on which of the three swords is in control. He joins FridgeMan, BrightMan and StarMan in a raid on DenTech City. They are challenged by SearchMan and ThunderMan. Although the battle was four to one, the Darkloids lose and retreat.

SwordMan tries to eliminate Lan when the latter is at the park with Maylu. SwordMan summons a Dimensional Area and uses Sonic Blade to make Lan drop his Synchro Chip, but Maylu retrieves it, and then CrossFusion MegaMan leads SwordMan to the playground and tricks him into entering the playhouse, where SwordMan gets stuck. Unable to accept defeat, the red sword detaches from the main body and attacks, but is easily deleted and the other two retreat.

He is later partnered with FridgeMan to find MistMan and recruit him into the Darkloids. However, MistMan is in a huge Arabian style castle and it's filled with booby traps. Lan Hikari and Mayl Sakurai are also in the castle. A Dimensional Area is created and they fight over MistMan's lamp, whose possession switches several times. In the end, MistMan falls into Lan and Mayl's hands and he deletes FridgeMan and SwordMan.

SwordMan is later revived by Dr. Regal to distract the NetPolice, but is deleted again.
