Top 10 Mega Man Robot Master Songs [top ten]
So I was reading Whiffleboy's Top 10 NES songs thread, and when I decided to reply with some of my favorites, I noticed a lot of them were from Mega Man games. So I figured, I'll make a list of my own! And here it is.

One clarification: note the title, favorite "Robot Master Songs". In other words, no Mega Man 2 Wily 1. Or any other Wily stage or character select theme. I've been told a couple of times I have weird taste when it comes to Mega Man songs (I don't think so, but whatever), so let's see if you agree with me!

Solar Man (Mega Man 10)

You knew shit was about to hit the fan when you started Solar Man's stage and heard this music. I think it partly stands out because most of the MM10 soundtrack was sub-par, but it's still an awesome song.
Skull Man (Mega Man IV)

There's something funkily cool about this song. It definitely helps make Skull Man one of my favorite Robot Masters.
Concrete Man (Mega Man 9)

Mega Man 9 had a ton of awesome music, I can't help but include more than one of its songs on this list. Concrete Man is an awesome stage with awesome music. I love the drums on this.
Bubble Man (Mega Man 2)

This one has always been one of my favorites. His stage is also pretty awesome, especially the underwater part! I also recommend you check out brentalfloss' version of this song.
Snake Man (Mega Man 3)

You knew this one was gonna be in here. Snake Man's theme is recognizable anywhere.
Magma Man (Mega Man 9)

Magma Man is easily my favorite of the fire Robot Masters. And man, there's quite a few of them. His stage plays some awesome music, too. And you gotta love that dragon.
Strike Man (Mega Man 10)

I would've never guessed how much this song would grow on me. It combines the classic Mega Man melody catchiness with baseball-type music. Cool.
Hornet Man (Mega Man 9)

Easily the best song in Mega Man 9 in my opinion (no, I don't like Galaxy or Tornado Man that much).
Metal Man (Mega Man 2)
This guy kicks all sorts of ass. Awesome stage. Amazing song. BROKEN WEAPON. I always beat him first on Mega Man 2, I know I'm not the only one.
Top Man (Mega Man 3)

The best. There was never any doubt in my mind. Too bad Top Man is the worst Robot Master ever. The irony.
It's not on the list, but seriously, this is better than Mega Man 2's Wily.

I like MM2 Wily 1 but there're probably seven or eight Robot Master songs I'd put above it.

Great list! I went through and listened to each one. You pretty much can't go wrong with Mega Man NES music at all. My favorites of your list are Solar Man, Concrete Man, Bubble Man, and Snake Man. Top, Strike and Hornet are really good too.

Some of my own favorites in addition to the ones I mentioned above:

Elec Man
Crash Man
Flash Man
Air Man
Shadow Man
Needle Man
Dive Man
Gravity Man
Flame Man
Tornado Man
Galaxy Man
Nitro Man

My goodness, why are there so many Mega Man 9 and 10?!

Mega Man 2 should've accounted for at least half the lisssst.

You could probably pick the ten worst songs from 8-bit Mega Man and there would still be four or five great songs on the list.

If we're gonna make lists I think I'll go with:

10. Gemini Man
9. Pharaoh Man
8. Needle Man
7. Flash Man
6. Wood Man
5. Skull Man
4. Snake Man
3. Heat Man
2. Bubble Man
1. Crash Man

**Not in any particular order**

That was weird... I saw this thread and was like "I swear this thread was the top 10 NES songs" and then I click the thread and notice you made it cause of that other thread. It doesn't stop there though cause when I first saw the top 10 NES songs thread, the first thing that came to mind was a Mega Man song. Creepy

No Shadow Man, or Spark Man? What about Ring Man? Elec Man?

Still, good list. Glad you included Snake Man at least.

Ok, I'll do it.

Did you know: I love all of the music from Megaman 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9?

Oh, and by the way GelantinousEncore, here is one of "the most underrated Dr. Wily 1 stage" themes "ever"

Edit: It pains me that there isn't much Megaman 7 love in here :(

Nice list Gelatinous! There's such a great selection of songs from all the Mega Man games.

I don't know what people are talking about, MM9 and 10 are definitely worth highlighting (and this coming from someone who grew up playing the entire series).

Choice #9 is an excellent choice, Skull Man's music is just sweet.

Choice #7, Bubble Man's music almost always brings a tear to my eye. I will never forget the impact that level, that song, had on me when I was a kid.

Choice #3, Hornet Man, great choice.


Another great list, it's interesting how everyone's picks can be so different.

MM7 for SNES, hhmmm. The melodies are cool, but there's something I just love about the 8-bit sound.

I will say, that Shade Man's intro is reaallly nice. It has that spooky feel to it.

It's weird. When I think "what are some of my favorite NES songs," Mega Man games definitely come to mind immediately.
When I think "what are some of my favorite SNES songs," MM7 is somewhere far far down the list. Maybe I have different expectations for SNES music. MM7 even had its own competition with 'big brother' MMX series (whose music I prefer to 7's)!

Wow, MM6 Knight Man's music is epic, hadn't realized it before!

As for my own favorites, where would I even begin?

So I'll just embed 5 additional songs I really like whose music has not been posted in this thread yet.

Splash Woman (MM9)

Plug Man (MM9)

Nitro Man (MM10)

This song is almost always playing in my head.

Dive Man (MM4)

Wave Man (MM5)

Looks like I love those water-types, lol.

Bubble Man's theme is awesome. I wonder what my list would look like if I did this? I'd probably include Spark Man...

@shinriley Dude, not only do I love that MM7 Wily song, I actually kind of "borrowed" the bass/general riff for my own song. Not sure how evident it is, but it's the same base/chord progression for my first part as in that Wily song.

The FC version of that song is good too:


Hmm...apparently you can't deep link to a certain point in a youtube video on this board, so just skip to 4:04
