Strike Man is a Robot Master from the game Mega Man 10: Threat From Outer Space!!. Bearing the serial number DWN-078, he was a pitcher at a baseball stadium prior to contracting Roboenza. Strike Man is the wielder of the Rebound Striker, which Sheep Man is vulnerable to.
Strike Man resembles a baseball. Since he has the "Air Man-type design", he does not have a definite head. His eyes are inside a black stripe that runs around where the head should be. A yellow stripe runs around his waist, giving Strike Man a similar appearance to a baseball. His belly is straddled by two green crystals. His left arm has a brown baseball mitt rather than an actual hand.
Strike Man begins his battle with his Rebound Striker weapon, throwing a pink ball that can bounce throughout the arena, slightly homing in on Mega Man. Strike Man's jump prior to the throw telegraphs the trajectory. A short hop means that the ball will be thrown straight ahead. If Strike Man jumps prior to his throw, the ball will be thrown diagonally, bouncing off the ceiling. Strike Man can also bounce around the room as a ball, turning him into an obstacle that must be avoided. Strike Man's projectile bounces around his room more times on harder levels.
At the hardest difficulty level, Strike Man can jump into his room's centre and throw four balls around the room. After this, Strike Man will become dizzy for several seconds.
Strike Man is vulnerable to the Triple Blade, which can destroy the projectiles he throws.
- Strike Man has orange crystals straddling his "belly" in the game due to colour limitations, rather than green.
- Strike Man's weakness to the Triple Blade can be explained with two reasons:
- First of all, sharp objects can destroy rubber balls. (This also explains why Bounce Man takes more damage from the Pile Driver.)
- Second of all, it is a subtle joke to a saying, "Three strikes and you're out!", which summarizes what happens if you miss three pitches in baseball.
