|~ Tengu Man|
Tengu Man is a Robot Master and a minor antagonist in Mega Man 8 and in Mega Man & Bass.
Tengu Man is a experimental robot created to generate artificial typhoons, later being modified by Dr. Wily for combat. Being modeled after a Tengu, he is equipped with jet engines on his back that allow him to fly at high speeds and he is also capable of reading the atmosphere. He is very proud of his nose which gives him quite an arrogant and overconfident attitude (despite his samurai speech). After his defeat, he was recruited by King into joining his robot army.
Tengu Man stays in the air for most of the fight, occasionally descending to attack the player, using his Kamaitachi to deal continuous damage or the Tornado Hold to trap Mega Man for a free hit. He will also swoop down then descent to stomp the player. His weakness is the Ice Wave. In Mega Man & Bass he fights in the same manner, except his weapons work a bit different. He replaces the Kamaitachi with the Tengu Blade, which deals a direct hit, and his Tornado Hold now pushes the player to the edge of the screen. His weakness in this game is the Spread Drill.
- Tengu Man is one of the few Robot Masters to offer a different weapon across games. In Mega Man 8, for example, he gives the Tornado Hold when defeated, but in Mega Man & Bass, he gives the Tengu Blade, possibly to provide something that Magic Man can be weak to.
- There is a game-breaking glitch in Mega Man & Bass that involves striking Tengu Man with the Spread Drill during a dive. This causes him to fall into the wall and get stuck. The only way to escape is to restart the level or killing the player.
