Ombuds Man is a Robot Master from the fangame Mega Man 42. He is a Robot Master built to handle paperwork and other bureaucratic affairs, before eventually allying himself with Dr. Wily. He appears as the boss of Tier 2 in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2, with an upgraded pattern from his original game.
Mega Man 42
Ombuds Man is one of the eight Robot Masters. His stage takes place in an office building that either Mega Man or Mega Girl (Roll) must climb in order to reach the boss. His attacks consists of his signature Paper Slash move, which fires a triple spreadshot of paper, one forward and two at 45 degree angles, and slamming his fist on the ground, producing falling debris from the ceiling.
He is weak to the Color Glob, Art Man's Special Weapon, and his Paper Slash weapon is the weakness of Zombie Man.
Ombuds Man appears as the boss of Tier 2, the Sewers. After a brief bit of dialogue with Mega Man, where he admits to not even knowing what an Ombuds is, calling it "an enigma of life", he challenges the player.
Ombuds Man's abilities have been significantly ramped up from his original battle. In addition to retaining all of his original attacks, he has gained a good amount of new moves as listed below.
- Ombuds Man tosses a printer on the ground, which can be destroyed. This printer fires paper shots straight forward.
- Ombuds Man walks around and jumps, firing a single piece of paper forward.
- Ombuds Man fires a paper slash straight up. The sideways papers arc downwards. He proceeds to adjust his tie, and teleport to another location. When he teleports, a paper slash is fired to the left and right of him.
After his defeat, he will appear at Chateau Chevaleresque as an NPC.
Mega Man: Uhh... a business man in the sewer? What...?
(Ombuds Man faces Mega Man)
Ombuds Man: Ahh, you've finally arrived!
Ombuds Man: I was wondering when you would show up, Mega Man. I've grown quite impatient down here.
Mega Man: Who are you and why did you think it was a good idea to bring formal wear into a sewer?
Ombuds Man: Ahh, you don't remember me... I am Ombuds Man!
Ombuds Man: As I recall correctly, I am from one of your earlier adventures, so I am not surprised I have been forgotten.
Ombuds Man: As for why I wear attire, it is simply business. Do not question what needs to be done.
Mega Man: ... What is an Ombuds?
Ombuds Man: Ah, the quintessential question - for even I cannot deliver you an answer. It is simply an enigma of life.
Ombuds Man: But now, we must do battle - it is destiny that we must.
Ombuds Man: I'm getting quite disgusted by this sewer either way, so it would be preferred if this was taken care of quickly.
While he doesn't return as a boss or even an NPC, Ombuds Man makes a surprise cameo appearance in Episode Zero's end credits. He is seen in the Chateau Chevaleresque standing next to Napalm Man, and the two seem perfectly content not saying a single word to each other.
|Other Notes||Destroying the falling debris can actually yield drops.|
- His name is a reference to an ombudsman, an appointed official whose duty is to investigate complaints, generally on behalf of individuals such as consumers or taxpayers, against institutions such as companies and government departments.
