Centaur Man is one of the eight Robot Masters from Mega Man 6. He is a centaur-themed robot who worked as a museum's tour guide.
When he heard about the First Annual Robot Tournament he decided to enter to help the museum, so his creator modified him for combat, equipping him with a space-distortion device which allowed to briefly freeze time and teleport short distances. Becoming one of the eight finalists of the tournament, he was reprogrammed by Mr. X to help him conquer the world.
Centaur Man fights by teleporting around and shooting from his buster arm, causing a spread upon impact. Every now and then he will use his Centaur Flash, which paralyzes the player for a short time. His weakness is the Knight Crusher.
