|~ Blast Man.|
Blast Man, also known by his Model Number DWN-083, is one of the eight Robot Masters that is in Mega Man 11. He has a penchant for explosives, a recurring theme among the other bomb-wielding Robot Masters that predate before him. Blast Man also has a taste for the theatrics.
In the Japanese version, he was voiced by Tasuku Hatanaka, who also voiced Yuma Tsukumo and Denki Kaminari, and in the English version of the game, he is voiced by Chris Hackney, who also provided the voice of Dimitri from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
Originally a theme park robot manufactured by the B.B. Bomb Company to create pyrotechnic effects with his bombs, Blast Man was kidnapped and reprogrammed by Dr. Wily to use his explosive expertise for nefarious purposes (defeating Mega Man). He is able to generate bomb explosions of various intensities, from the smallest bursts to the largest bangs.
Blast Man is described to be a mad bomber, using his own explosions for fun. He is also egotistical, putting his name and image all over his stage. The overall movie-set aesthetics to his stage suggests that Blast Man has a penchant for theatrics.
Blast Man was first seen in the game's opening cutscene where he is getting his annual maintenance alongside the other seven Robot Masters. However, he was shortly kidnapped by Dr. Wily who barged inside Dr. Light's lab. After the incident, Blast Man was reprogrammed by the evil doctor. He fought Mega Man twice (the first time in his stage and the second time in Dr. Wily's Gear Fortress), but was defeated.
At the end, Blast Man was reprogrammed back to his original and kind-hearted self. He took a group photo with Mega Man, Roll, Dr. Light, Beat, Rush, Auto, Eddie, and the other seven Robot Masters.
Blast Man's fight can be a bit hard, but doable. In battle, Blast Man would hop around the room while tossing bombs at the player. If his health reaches below half, Blast Man will activate his Power Gear and toss bigger (but stronger) bombs. His weakness is the Blazing Torch (Torch Man's weapon).
- The fact that Blast Man takes more damage from Torch Man's weapon is a reference to bombs being volatile in regards to heat. His own weapon's ability to deal critical damage to Block Man is a tribute to how bombs can destroy structures.

- Blast Man is the only Robot Master from Mega Man 11 to have visible hair. It is red and flares from his head like an explosion.
