Phase 3

Knight Man is a boss from Mega Man 6. Designed for combat, he entered into the First Annual Robot Tournament, where he made it to the finals before being reprogrammed by Dr. Wily under the guise of Mr. X.

While he appears as a minor NPC in Tier 2 in the original Make a Good Mega Man Level and its remake, he has a much more important role in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2. There, he runs Chateau Chevaleresque, and will give rewards for collecting certain amounts of Noble Nickels. Once all 220 Noble Nickels have been collected, Knight Man will explain the true power of the Noble Nickels, and reveal that the reason he was searching for all of them was so that he could defeat Mega Man. Knight Man is then fought as a superboss.

Knight Man would later make a small cameo in Make a Good Mega Man Level: Episode Zero, once again staying in and managing Chateau Chevaleresque. He is seen during the game's credits, raising his beer glass and winking at the camera. After the credits, he is seen talking to Zero (in his hooded disguise) inside the Chateau, the latter implied to having just finished telling Knight Man about his adventures and his desire to prove himself to Mega Man, which Knight Man claims to relate with.

Although he isn't a boss, Knight Man is included in the Megamix Engine as the default appearance of moving NPC objects.


Phase 1[edit]

Knight Man's first phase is directly based off his battle from Mega Man 6. He will randomly pick between one of three attacks:

  • Walk to Mega Man's position.
  • Throw his Knight Crusher at Mega Man, which returns to Knight Man after reaching Mega Man's position.
  • Jump at Mega Man.

When Knight Man's health has been depleted, he will charge up a "Knight Punch" and launch Mega Man into space, starting the second phase.

Phase 2[edit]

Mega Man is able to move freely in all directions using Rush Jet during this phase. Knight Man randomly picks between the following attacks:

  • Throw eight Knight Crushers while floating around Mega Man's vertical position. Knight Man always starts the battle with this attack.
  • Move to the center of the screen, and shoot streams of lasers in four directions, then change the direction they rotate in while throwing Knight Crushers.
  • Teleport to different parts of the screen six times, throwing a Knight Crusher each time.
  • Throw a charged Knight Crusher that bounces along the edges of the screen, then chase Mega Man while throwing spreads of Knight Crushers.

Once Knight Man's health has been depleted a second time, he will use another Knight Punch on Mega Man and launch him to the moon, following him there. Once they reach the moon's surface, Knight Man uses the power of the Noble Nickels to strengthen himself even further, beginning phase 3.

Phase 3[edit]

Knight Man will start the battle by randomly picking between the following attacks, teleporting 2-3 times to random positions between each attack:

  • Create a circle of golden energy balls, then fire them at Mega Man in quick succession.
  • Create a Black Hole Bomb that tries to suck Mega Man in, and throw multiple Knight Crushers to try and knock Mega Man into the black hole.
  • Create a circle of golden energy balls that spins rapidly before moving out in all directions. Repeat twice, then create a similar circle of golden energy balls that instead lines up in a row at the top of the screen and drops down in groups.
  • Create two purple energy blasts that chase Mega Man while only moving in cardinal directions. The first energy blast will eventually fly straight up off the screen, while the second will eventually drop to the ground and explode.
  • Fire a barrage of purple energy blasts upwards that drop down in rows that Mega Man must maneuver between.

When Knight Man's health reaches 56, his set of attacks changes:

  • Float to the center of the screen and turn into two gigantic blue energy orbs that slowly move around the screen, bouncing off edges.
  • Stop time, then unleash a giant spread of blades (identical in appearance to the Triple Blade) right above Mega Man, then create a smaller group of 3 blades in front of Mega Man before time begins flowing again.
  • Create a circle of golden energy balls, then fire them at Mega Man in quick succession.
  • Throw four Knight Crushers that home in on Mega Man. The Knight Crushers will sometimes stop briefly before resuming movement in whatever direction Mega Man has moved to (much like the infamous energy balls used by the Wily Capsule in Mega Man 7). Knight Man will then repeat the attack, using it on the side of the screen opposite to the side he first used the attack on.
  • Charge up an oval-shaped golden aura around himself, then create a spread of several golden energy balls that float outwards while also spinning slightly, making it harder for Mega Man to squeeze between them.

When Knight Man's health reaches 28, his attack set changes once again:

  • Charge up a golden oval-shaped aura around himself and fire five streams of golden energy balls that each move outward in spiral formations.
  • Summon an onslaught of meteors that drop straight down from the top of the screen (the meteors are identical in appearance to the giant fireballs shot by Scorch Man from Mega Man Sunrise.
  • Create a circle of golden energy balls, then fire all but four them at Mega Man in quick succession before teleporting to the other side of the screen and firing the remaining four at Mega Man.
  • An attack that is identical to his homing Knight Crusher attack from his previous healthbar phase.
  • Teleport off of the screen, then shoot a set of blue, non-lethal Quick Lasers, one at a time, either horizontally or vertically. The Force Beams will shift directions shortly after appearing, requiring Mega Man to either position himself just right or dodge very skillfully, even having to slide under a Force Beam in one case. Knight Man will teleport back on the screen after the attack is over.

After depleting Knight Man's health a third time, the battle will end.

Other Notes


  • The recurring theme of Knight Man "having it in him" is an in-joke relating to the credits of the fangame Mega Man: Rock Force. In a scene where Knight Man is shown performing in a stage play with a fanmade Robot Master from the game called Charade Man, Plant Man says "You know, I didn't think Knight Man had it in him."
  • Knight Man's battle includes several references to other series of video games and miscellaneous media:
    • Phases 2 and 3 of Knight Man's fight as a whole are a reference to the final boss of Kirby's Adventure, being a battle in the middle of space with free movement followed by a grounded battle on the moon, complete with said battle ending with the moon having a hole blown in it to make it permanently look like a crescent moon.
    • Knight Man's appearance in phase 3 is based on Super Saiyans from the Dragon Ball franchise.
    • Knight Man's giant blue orb attack in phase 3 is based on an attack used by Magolor Soul, the secret final boss of Kirby's Return to Dream Land.
    • Knight Man's time-stopping attack is a reference to Stardust Crusaders, the third part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. The main villain of the part, DIO, has the ability to stop time at will, and sometimes uses this ability to throw several knives while time is stopped, then resume time for his targets to be hurt by the knives.
  • In Phase 1 of Knight Man's fight, Knight Man always throws his Knight Crusher as his first attack (in order to go well with his starting pose) rather than randomly picking one of his three attacks in Mega Man 6. This also happens in Mega Man Maker.
