Originally designed to be a maintenance robot who specialised in Welding, Torch Man was reprogrammed and modified to be a combat robot by Dr. Wily and CRORQ. He resides deep within the sewers in an aquatic environment, despite being a specialist in heat-based weapons. He uses his Special Weapon, a Flamethrower-like weapon called the Torch Arm to scorch his opponents from a distance. Due to his flame-based nature, he is weak against Wave Man'sWater Shooter weapon.
His mugshot is an edit of Magnet Man's mugshot, without the head-mounted magnet, as well as his sprite resembling Magnet Man with some color variation and less details.
Ironically, Torch Man is fought in a water filled room.
