You could avoid that move easily though, as he'll always land butter-side-up
I'd like to see some believable robot masters... perhaps Road Maintenance Man, Component Manufacturing Man or Pacific Trench Exploration and Sample Collecting Man.
How about Military Man? He has tank treads and is the only Robot Master to never EVER have hands, having them replaced with a tank cannon on one hand, a machine gun on the other. Courtesy Wily, of course.
And, of course...
Sorry Shrike, but Napalmman beat you to the no-hands thing. ;D

(As if my joke had gone unnoticed.)
Anyways, we still need REPAIR-MAN-MAN-MAN-MAN-MAN-MAN and Toaster Man. And maybe Fat Man. He's fat, he's a man, and he fires enormous globs of ranch dressing that may or may not have a slice of pizza somewhere in them. (It's almost like I'm trying to give someone ideas.)
Hmm... I would love to see Aloha Man, Banana Man, Letter Man, Punch Man, and Rosary Woman.
Aloha Man would be like a Hawaiian fire dancer. He could live in the jungle with a river flowing with lava. The enemies could be like Tiki Statue robots that shoot fireballs and hula girl robots that attack by dancing. He could use the Fire Poi weapon like Leaf Shield (from MM2), only with burning properties.
Banana Man would become a meme due to his phallic shape. He could live in the ice cream factory (an ice level) complete with ice cream cone robots and hot fudge pools (similar to underwater levels). His weapon, Banana Split, would be like Chameleon Sting (from MMX), only with freezing properties.
Letter Man would resemble a blue mailbox and he would use his Sharp Mail weapon to shoot razor sharp envelopes out of his mouth (slot) in an attempt to give Mega Man a nasty paper cut. He would naturally live in a post office complete with conveyer belts, suction tubes, and mail-related robots like mailboxes and homing pigeons.
Punch Man would be a fast-moving boxing robot complete with boxing gloves. He uses his Blow Punch weapon to shoot exploding boxing gloves (useful for destroying barriers just like Crash Bomb and Drill Bomb). He would live in a gym complete with robotic gym equipment like exploding medicine balls and laser-shooting exercise bikes.
Rosary Woman could look like a Catholic nun who can fly and she resides in a robot cathedral complete with stained glass windows and clockworks (think Castlevania's clock stages). The level starts out in the rose garden outside and continues into the robot cathedral and ends in the clock tower. Her weapon could be Rosary Beads which could be used like a whip (made of magnetic beads) that could be used in different directions (think Super Castlevania IV).

I really like Aloha Man, but maybe make Aloha Woman, the same thing but a chick. And probably with a sort of dual weapon where she uses one Poi as you describe and another as a flaming boomerang. The reason I posit a sex change? To add to the exotic feel of a Fire Poi fighter.
I thought about Aloha Woman but I decided to go with Aloha Man as it fits the traditional image of a Hawaiian fire dancer better. Men are traditionally fire dancers in Polynesian cultures. Polynesian men are just as exotic as Polynesian women so I don't see the need for Aloha Woman.

True, I won't deny Aloha Man would fit tradition better. It really is a toss-up for me.
How about Pipe Man? He was built as a water treatment guy and used his Hydro Arm to perform this duty, but as a Robot Master uses it as a weapon. His stage would be a sewer complete with alligators and Blaarg-like water monsters. (It'd be poo monsters if I had my way, but I doubt Capcom would ever do that, though I have been wrong before.)
nocturnal YL: I've been thinking about how would things turn out if we do another NinDB Top 25 after 5 years passed. One thing I'm sure is that the participation rate would remain low.

Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.
Aug 25, 2020 10:19:20 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.
