~ Drill Man

Drill Man is a Robot Master and one of the main bosses in Mega Man 4.


Drill Man was the third robot created by Dr. Cossack. His original purpose was to work at construction sites. One day, Cossack was forced to work for Dr. Wily. As a result, Drill Man was converted into a combat robot to fight Mega Man. Drill Man is a diligent and very hard worker. However, he can be dangerous and careless at certain times. He dislikes performing calculations and planning ahead, preferring to rush his jobs whenever he grows bored. Despite Drill Man's tendencies of making dangerous mistakes, he is talented at finding things that are hidden underground.


Mega Man 4

Drill Man is fought at a mine shaft. He starts the battle by burrowing into the ground. Around 5 seconds later, he emerges where Mega Man is standing who must move immediately. Drill Man then starts shooting his Drill Bombs. Mega Man can avoid the attacks by jumping over them. While Drill Man shoots, he runs back and forth. Moments later he repeats his entire process. Its best to attack him with the Dive Missile, as it will home in on him when he jumps, but not when he is underground, and it can also be deflected by his Drill Bombs and by his burrowing move. Still, it defeats him in ten hits.

Mega Man III

Drill Man in one of the four bosses fought in the later stages of the game. His strategy is similar to Mega Man 4.

Other Media


Drill Man appears in the episodes The Big Shake, Showdown at Red Gulch, and Master of Disaster. His arms are bigger in the cartoon compared to his game counterpart.



  • The action figure of Drill Man is based on the cartoon show.
  • The only weapon able to deal damage on Drill Man while he's burrowing underground (albeit very little) is Toad Man's weapon.
  • Interestingly enough, even though it's mentioned in some media that the Dive Missile can home in on Drill Man while he's underground, it's not the case in the actual game. The homing only works while he's above ground
