DWN-026 Toad Man, (originally DCN) is a toad-like robot and one of the main bosses of Mega Man 4 that has been featured in Mega Man Maker since it's version 1.0.0. He is armed with his signature weapon, the Rain Flush which he uses as his primary means of combat outside simply jumping around the room.

Originally an agricultural robot built by Dr. Cossack to irrigate crops during droughts, he was forcibly modified for combat by order of Dr. Wily who modified his irrigation system to release acidic rain instead of clean water. He would take to the sewers where he would eventually fight Mega Man.

Appearance

Toad Man's Official Artwork From Mega Man 4

Toad Man is a mostly Green Robot with an Air-Man Body type that resembles the look of a toad or frog. His legs and forearms are green, along with the majority of his one-piece torso. His arms and legs are black, with golden joints. His shoulder armor is white, as are his hands. His stomach has a white patch with a yellow portion near the bottom center of it. His eyes are seen in a gap near the top of his body seemingly inside the toad's mouth, where just above are two yellow lights that resemble the toad's eyes.

In-Game Pattern

Toad Man will start the battle in an idle state. If you do not press the shoot button for a certain amount of time while Toad Man is in his idle state (about 5 seconds), Toad Man will do a rain dance animation, followed by using Rain Flush, his screen-wide attack that cannot be dodged. If Toad Man takes damage from any attack during his rain dance animation, he will immediately cancel the animation, won't use the Rain Flush, and will return to his idle state. While Toad Man is in his idle state and standing on the ground, if the player presses the shoot button, even if equipped with Nothing or a weapon with no remaining ammo, Toad Man will attempt to jump and land on the player.

Trivia

  • Toad Man's AI can get stuck in a loop, constantly transitioning back and forth between "idle state" and "rain dance state", if hit by "hold-button rapid-fire weapons" or "single-shot multi-hit weapons", making him unable to move or fight back. This AI quirk arises due to Toad Man's Mega Man 4 accurate AI not being built to handle these situations.
  • Toad Man can get trapped in an AI loop even without rapid-fire or multi-hit weapons. Do nothing and wait until Toad Man starts his rain dance animation, and then shoot once to damage to Toad Man and cancel his Rain Flush attack, rinse and repeat to trap Toad Man in an AI loop that makes him unable to fight back.
    • Due to way Toad Man behaves, he & Bomb Man are the only bosses in Mega Man Maker it's possible to normally fight without them using their weapon.
