|Full Name|| Nunchaku Man|
|Current Status|| Decommissioned (2014)—eventually rebuilt|
Decommissioned (after 4444)
|First Appearance||Mega Man K1|
|Latest Appearance||Tempo 6: Aberrant Uprising|
His weapon, the Nunchucker, fires an energy nunchaku out of either of the twin-barreled busters located on each arm, which then spins end over end until it makes contact with a physical object, at which point the energy 'detonates', hopefully injuring an opponent.
Despite his eventual destruction, Nunchaku Man proved a powerful opponent, and so Dr. Kojiro rebuilt him several times. Rumors state that he may have survived the Cataclysm and that he continues to survive even in the era of Megaman Tempo.
Behind the scenes
Nunchaku Man is one of the creator's favorite personal characters in terms of design.
Nunchaku Man was created as the first of a group of 8 Robot Masters whose themes were obtained from various friends of Somarinoa, in order to make the characters weapons as varied as possible. Somarinoa asked his late friend Tad "Tanma" Wade — a fellow large Mega Man fan — for a theme and he thought for a few seconds before responding with "Uh...n...nunchucks?". The character was originally designed as a comical character, but was later redrawn in a serious form.
Nunchaku Man's constant rebuilding despite being destroyed is a way to keep some form of the memory of Tanma alive.
