|Official Artwork of Hard Man|
Hard Man (ハードマン Hādoman) is a Robot Master created by Dr. Light and Dr. Wily that first appeared in Mega Man 3. He has a hard, durable body made of ceratanium, which makes him highly resistant to attacks and grants him remarkable defense. However, it also makes him very heavy, weighing in at about three tons, and affects his movement speed considerably.
His special weapon is the Hard Knuckle, which allows him to detach his fists and attack from afar with rocket-powered punches, and also has a compact rocket booster built into himself that allows him to jump high into the air. He can utilize his jumping ability in combination with his excessive weight to attack by leaping up and diving down onto his opponents to crush them, or to smash the floor and cause tremors that can stun nearby foes.
