Pile Man, or Impact Man as he prefers to be called in the U.S.A., is one of the eight Robot Masters fought in Mega Man 11. He bears the serial number DWN-087.

Biography

Pile Man was first seen in the game's opening cut scene where he is getting his annual maintenance alongside the other seven Robot Masters. Dr. Wily busted his way inside Dr. Light's lab and kidnapped Pile Man and took him back to the Gear Fortress to reprogram him. Following the incident, Pile Man was reprogrammed by the evil doctor but continued to work on his construction site (under the alias "Impact Man" in the USA). He fought Mega Man twice (the first time in his stage and the second time in Dr. Wily's Gear Fortress) but was defeated (though the latter occurence may have been just a copy).

After Dr. Wily's evil schemes have been thwarted, Impact 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.  

Battle

During his boss fight, Impact Man will stomp across the room and create quake tremors that will temporarily stun Mega Man if he is on the ground, similar to Guts Man. He will occasionally lunge across the room. Impact Man will also plant spikes onto the ground. After reaching critical health, Impact Man will use the Power Gear and transform into a massive jackhammer and will attempt to crush Mega Man. Defeating Impact Man will reward Mega Man the Pile Driver weapon. Impact Man's weakness is Acid Barrier (Acid Man's weapon).

Appearance

Impact Man was originally designed to perform heavy construction under extreme conditions. He is composed of three combiner robots who each have a different personality. However, Impact Man was reprogrammed by Dr. Wily to help in his quest of world domination. His default form portrays him with black, orange, and yellow as his primary colour scheme. His head and torso are black, his right limbs and the right side of his torso are yellow, and his left limbs and the left side of his torso are orange. His arms end in grey-ish white iron spikes. His head is topped with a grey-ish white iron spike.

Personality

Impact Man is always dedicated into his work as a construction robot and is never late. Even after Dr. Wily reprogrammed him, Impact Man still works hard and efficiently alongside his fellow construction robots. The three combiner robots that forms Impact Man are known as the Impact Brothers and each have a different personality:

The eldest and leader of the trio, Kui-ichiro, never fails to drive his point home, and usually takes control when the brothers are combined. The middle robot, Kui-jiro, is terrible at making decisions on his own and will rely on his oldest brother for advice. The youngest, Kui-saburo, often takes great maintenance of Impact Man.

Trivia

  • This Robot Master is the only Robot Master from Mega Man 11 to be handless. His arms end in spikes in this case.
  • Pile Man is the only Robot Master whose stage contains indestructible enemies in Mega Man 11. In this case, piledriver robots will charge through the level, trying to skewer Mega Man on their way.
  • The way he takes additional damage from the Acid Barrier alludes to acid's corrosive nature.
  • The way Bounce Man takes more damage from the Pile Driver references how bouncy balls can pop due to spikes.
