"Perhaps you will be a challenge. Fall to the fist of flame!"
―Torch Man, Mega Man 11

Torch Man (トーチマン Tōchiman) is a Robot Master set to appear in Mega Man 11.[1][2][3] He originally was an outdoor advisor that taught campers about fire safety and practiced martial arts to keep the flames coming out from his body under control, but was reprogrammed by Dr. Wily to fight against Mega Man and use his pyrokinetic abilities for destructive purposes. He is a practitioner of Torch-jutsu (トーチ火炎拳 Tōchikaenken, lit. "Torch Flame Fist"), a martial arts he developed, being particularly good with jumping kicks.  His Special Weapon, Blazing Torch, allows Mega Man to fire a ball of red-hot fire diagonally into the air.

Appearance

Torch Man is a tall robot master outfited with red armor covering most of his gray body suit. His shoulder pads resemble torches and are constantly emitting flames, and his feet have vents. 

Personality

Despite being a fire-themed robot, Torch Man is surprisingly cool-headed and disciplined, although he loses his temper when his opponent gains the upper hand in battle, and is quick to activate the Power Gear[2] to give himself an extra edge.

Strategy

Torch Man spends most of his battle shooting fireballs from his fists, occasionally stopping to jump around the room and try to hit Mega Man with a well-placed kick.  He can either run up to Mega Man and perform a sweeping kick, or he can jump up and then come down with a blazing kick.

When he loses half of his health, Torch Man activates his Power Gear, sets his body ablaze, and jumps around the room while sending giant fireballs rolling on the ground, then jumps into the air and comes crashing down in the middle of the room, creating a massive flame pillar in his wake.  He returns to his normal pattern after this.
