DWN-013 Crash Man, (or Clash Man depending on localization) is one of the main bosses from Mega Man 2 that is featured in Mega Man Maker. Crash Man is armed with his signature weapon, the Crash Bomber which is a surface adhering bomb that will blow up after a short time.

Crash Man will walk left and right across the floor and will turn around once he is about one square of space away from a wall or once he reaches the edge of the floor.

Crash Man's AI reacts to shoot button inputs, similar to Metal Man, Skull Man, and Toad Man. Pressing the shoot button when Crash Man is on the ground, will cause Crash Man to jump up into the air and then launch a single Crash Bomber at where the player currently is. Once the bomb hits a surface, it will stick to it and explode after a few seconds. Both the Crash Bomber itself, and its explosion can hurt the player. Crash Man will also launch a Crash Bomber at the player, if the player doesn't press the shoot button for an extended period of time.

As Crash Man jumps if he is on the ground when the player presses the shoot button, Crash Man can be tricked into jumping into the player's on coming attacks, or to jump out of the way for the player to travel safely underneath him.

As Crash Man's Crash Bomber sticks to walls, ceilings, or certain Level Objects, in some non-traditional arenas, the player can use these to hide behind or underneath to protect themselves.

Glitches

  • Crash Man can only have one of his Crash Bombers active at a time. If he is triggered to fire again while one has yet to explode or despawn, he will preform the animation but not fire anything. This can cause problems in certain levels, as if Crash Man ends up firing upward into another screen the bomb will never collide with anything and as a result he will be unable to fire another for the rest of the fight.
  • Crash Man can easily clip into walls when he is in a tight or compact space, making him somewhat problematic for levels in that design.

Trivia

  • Crash Man, like Metal Man, Skull Man and Toad Man, will counterattack the player if they press the shoot button, even if they have no ammo for their current weapon, or are equipped with Nothing.
  • In the English version of Mega Man II for Gameboy, Crash Man is referred to as Clash Man, his Japanese name, while in the Japanese version of Mega Man: The Power Battle, Clash Man is referred to as Crash Man, his English name.
  • In the English version of Mega Man: The Wily Wars, Crash Bomber uses its Japanese abbreviation "CL" in the weapon select screens, but is referred to elsewhere in the game by its English name.
  • Crash Man's level music may have been the inspiration for the main theme of the Canadian TV show "Video & Arcade Top 10".
