|~ Sword Man|
Sword Man is a boss from Mega Man 8. He is one of the four Robot Masters that keep the barrier on the Wily Tower. Dr. Wily created Sword Man with a huge ancient sword he stole from a museum. Due to the heavy weight of the sword, Wily separated his body in two parts, with the upper torso kept afloat with a anti-gravitational device. Because of this, the two halves can act independently. Due to being a swordsman, he possesses a chivalrous personalty, accepting Mega man's challenge and stating he has nothing personal against him.
Sword Man's attacks include spinning his top half, summoning a large stone head which drops on the player's position and dashing at the player then using his Flame Sword. When on half health, he will also place his sword on the ground and summon a large pillar of fire around him. His weakness is the Water Balloon, which fries his circuits and can pass through his pillar of fire.
