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's Water 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.
- TorchMan.EXE is what FireMan.EXE is called in the MegaMan NT Warrior anime. However, he is related to a different fire Robot Master as well as the new robot master with the same name in Mega Man 11.
- Torch Man's main weakness is Water Shooter, but Shark Boomerang and Blade Launcher work well as alternatives.
- Torch Man's mugshot shows he has a normal face, but his in game sprite has large blue eyes. Perhaps as a welding robot he has a visor to shield his eyes.
