ShadowMan EXE


ShadowMan EXE

Shadowman EXE is a fictional character from the Mega Man Battle Network game series, and the Mega Man NT Warriorseries. He is based on his Robot Master counterpart from Mega Man 3.

Personality

Shadowman is the NetNavi of the famous mercenary, Dark Miyabi. Shadowman is one of the most feared navis on the net, but only to the select few that have heard of or experienced his exploits. His operator is extremely secretive, and little is known about either him or his navi except they'll do anything for enough money. For Shadowman, "anything" means what it means, because almost nothing is impossible for this highly skilled assassin. His Muramasa blade, cursed though it may be, gains strength as he gains damage, so even if he is in a tight spot, he can get the advantage back quite quickly. With his nearly impenetrable Kawarimi defense, it's rare he ever has to use the blade, since enemies often attack illusions instead of the real Shadowman. He has a lot of ingenuity and resources, so deleting navis isn't the only job he's suited for. Because of his skill and power, Shadowman is very confident and never takes his job seriously. He's very anti-social since he considers most navis inferior to himself, and would sooner delete anyone he comes across. He doesn't believe in doing "freebies".

In video games

Shadowman is a secret boss in Mega Man Battle Network. He is then a canon character in the second game of the series as an assassin hired by the Netmafia, Gospel (Grave in the anime) to annihilate Yumland, and then later to destroy Electopia. He was successful in the destruction of Yumland, but was thwarted by Mega Man in his attempt to destroy Electopia, with help from Protoman. He then later appears in Rockman EXE 4.5 as a playable character, only obtainable through a Battle Chip Gate. Later on, he is discovered by Colonel.EXE, and was asked to join Team Colonel, where he helped the team with speed, and agility and Baryl has noted that Shadowman is one of the fastest and most agile navi in the world. His operator, Dark, or Dusk in the English version, had brief mention in Mega Man Battle Network 6 Cybeast Gregar, as the master of Dark Kirisaki, Dark Scythe in the English version.

In the anime

Shadowman appeared in the second part of the NT warrior series, as a hired gun of Grave to protect a virus factory. Having his plans failed by Mega Man, he meets an injured Freezeman. Saying he lost his worth, Shadowman eliminated Freezeman on the spot. In Megaman Axess, Shadowman is hired by Regal to destroy an airplane terminal, and was given Dark Chips to finish the job with Mega Man, but said he did not need them. Being overwhelmed, however, changed his mind and made him use them, exponentially increasing his power. However, being under the watchful eye of Searchman, had his arms blown off by the sniper, and was eventually deleted by him. In Stream, however, he is brought back to fight Duo with his operator, Dark Miyabi, using Cross Fusion. He was the of the few marked By Duo. He is later seen fighting Falzer, and Gregor in Beast.

In the anime, ShadowMan is voiced by Itou Kentarou in the Japanese version and Colin Murdock in the English version.

In the manga

Shadowman did not serve a major role in the manga. All that is seen of him is him fighting Protoman. In volume 3, he is shown saving Mega Man from Bass, and is seen in a panel of volume 4. In volume 11,Shadow man was shown in a bonus as a helper of Colenel. Any future appearances are unknown.

Dark Miyabi

Dark Miyabi (who also goes under the name of Dusk) is ShadowMan's operator. In the video games, he is an assassin hired by Gospel to destroy Electopia in Mega Man Battle Network 2, and joins Team Colonel in Mega Man Battle Network 5. He was also the master of Dark Kirisaki in the sixth game. In the anime series, Dark had only been mentioned until the Stream series, where he is part of the Cross Fusion team. He also had cameo appearances during the Beast and Beast+ series.

Dark is voiced by Kenichi Ono in the anime.
