Astro Man is a robot composed of a small green head, green torso, and a large grey sphere in place of a lower body. His head features a black screen with two red eyes, a yellow weather device of some sort on top, and a white and grey brace-like section connecting it to his body. His torso includes a teal box in the center with a form of grey electrical panel. His shoulders are spherical and also teal. Segmented yellow tubes connect his shoulders to the rest of his arms as well as one connecting to his spherical lower body. His arms are segmented like a pill capsule with the sections attached to the arms green and the other half yellow.

Astro Man has three attack patterns that he can use during battle. First, He can spin and dive towards the player in an attempt to collide with them. Second, He also can use his Astro Crush, which consists on a meteor rain made up of flaming afterimages of himself that are mostly indestructible but can be reflected or canceled out by certain weapons. Before using it, he appears and disappears many times across several sections of the screen and uses his balls at a lower level. Both Astro Man and his balls are intangible in this activation process. His third attack consists on making his spheres rotate in an elliptical path and shoot projectiles that look like shooting stars.
