Shadow Man is NOT a Robot Master built by Dr. Wily. So far he has only appeared in issues 15-16 and on the cover of Archie Mega Man Issue 26 as the leader of Skull Egg Zone's Egg Robo army. He is construted like a ninja. He was a Robot Master found by Wily in the Ra Moon temple. He is the only Robot Master from Mega Man 3 to not be designed by Dr. Wily. Due to not being a modern robot and instead an ancient one, it is difficult to tell what abilities he will have besides what is seen in the games.
- this version of shadow man also shares his name with the roboticized master Shadow Man who debuted in worlds collide
