They say that the truest measure of a hero lies in the tenacity of the villains that they face. Batman, Spider-Man, the Flash, Godzilla; these are protagonists with some serious galleries of rogues. Still, there’s one video game star that may have them bested. That’s right, Capcom’s blue bomber Mega Man, who (in his various incarnations) has faced down hundreds of unique foes. This is an extremely impressive track record considering that each of these so-called robot masters have proven lethal to players time and time again. Regardless, even the most remarkable lineup of villains is bound to bear a few, well, not necessarily misnomers, but hilarious-sounding foes in mix – it’s just the law of averages at work. Prepare for sophomoric innuendo aplenty as TR counts down some of the most suggestive boss names in the Mega Man franchise.
9) Quick Man
It probably wasn’t up to him, but Quick Man was given a terrible code name. Not only does it imply a certain lack of…stamina, it’s also fails to characterize his true killing ability. Most Mega Man bosses are named after their weapon, or at least their lethal power (Bomb Man has a bomb, etc.), but Quick Man throws boomerangs – quickness is kind of just a bonus. So really, the ladies (well, Splash Woman anyway) would be all about him if he’d just marketed himself with more confidence.
8) Burst Man
