I'm going with my favorite Robot Masters per game as the comic progresses.

1. Fire Man - first guy beaten
2. Probably Metal Man - great weapon, nice buzz sound. Fighting him was like playing dodgeball when you're dodging blades so it was fun. His sprite wasn't as cool though. Couldn't see the color distinctions.

3. Top Man - his stage had a nice design, had GIANT CATS, had great music. As for Top Man, he took an unusual concept and made it useful, even dangerous. His screen select pic also made him kinda friendly looking. And his weapon was the underdog so made it special.

I hope Ian doesn't make him flamboyantly gay-ish just because of his name and ability. It's just be too easy to make fun of him. But if Ian does make him gay-ish, I hope he makes it work, like he did with Crash Man, Flash Man, Heat Man etc. (I'm gay btw. I'm semi ok if Top Man is made effeminate or something but there got to some balance. Tops do have to keep balance all the time)

Wha...? Why would Top Man be "gay-ish"?

I will admit to only thinking Top Man as gay-ish from bob and George's mega man comic strip.

Before i read those strips, I didn't even get the Top reference as a kid, haha.

Anyhow, you'd have to admit that Top Man's pose is suspect on the page where the 8 robot masters attack on sky sleds (were they bootleg Item 2's?) on issue 36. Is it from Ian's direction or Powee's discretion?

It doesn't seem very suspect. He just seems to be enjoying himself, as a silly Robot Master who's nonetheless the hard counter to MM3's dark serious assassin-bot. He attacks by spinning and throwing tops at people: he's gonna be a bit ridiculous. But I don't see anything there that's really suspicious.

It's not against the rules to treat anything in Bob & George like it's canon, but it really should be.

Top Man's not gay. He's just very open about his dancing to other Wily Bots.
I'm not sure the Comic's Top Man or the Games but I know for sure...

Ruby Spears' Top Man is a Ladies Man.

I have no idea how to take that 'Toppy' comment of his, haha.

Found a pic of a girly Topman cosplay. Mind you, the other Robot Master cosplayers might be girls too but Topman really went for a girly pose. Perhaps they get that vibe from him?

My list of favorite Robot Masters varies from time to time, but it's typically the bosses that I find the most fun to fight, and that have the most unique weapons/attack patterns. So from Mega Man 3 it might be Hard Man because he does that awesome head-pounding thing that's hard to dodge, and in Mega Man 4 my favorite Robot Masters are Toad Man (Rain Flush FTW!) and Drill Man (he can burrow underground AND shoot exploding drills!). Both are really underrated if you ask me. :)

You really shouldn't use the word 'gay' for that sort of thing either. Effeminate, yeah, maybe. But each robot master is their own. I mean, if I wanted anybody to be effeminate, it would be Jewel Man cause that was put in his design notes. (They said he was going to be a dandy one).

Unless Ian makes him JEWELMANLY.
