A Robot Master created by Dr. Wily, the propellor on him creates a great amount of blowing and his main weapon is Air Shooter. The Fan Fiends are based on Air Man. In Mega Man 2, his main weakness is the Leaf Shield, as leaves can clog up his fan. While in Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters, Air Man's main weakness is the Super Arm as the bits of rocks clog up his fan.
Air Man will create a large swarm of tornadoes, making it difficult for Mega Man to avoid. If the Leaf Shield touches it, the tornado destroys the Leaf Shield, so Mega Man must time his shots carefully. A Leaf Shield will cause a great deal of damage to him as the leaves clog up his propellor.
While not an actual appearance, Doc Robot copies Air Man's ability and is found in Needle Man's stage. Mega Man could slide to avoid his tornadoes. Doc Robot is weak to Spark Shock or Magnet Missile.
Air Man is one of the Robot Masters in Mega Man II. Air Man will create a few tornadoes and Mega Man can slide to avoid some. Also, touching a tornado can cause the Leaf Shield to be destroyed. Do not try to jump before the tornado moves, as it will damage Mega Man.
Air Man now has his propellor to defend him and creates a large typhoon, shouting out "Yoshi" as he is shooting some tornadoes. Later, Air Man will freeze into the air and suck up junk (similar to the Junk Shield from Junk Man) and his main weakness is the Super Arm.
- Air Man dislikes the season of autumn, because leaves get stuck in his fan.
- Air Man is considered one of the most difficult bosses. Some Japanese fans of Mega Man created a song where they have trouble beating Air Man. In the song, a player tries to get past Heat Man's stage, but he loses. He said the Item 2 would make it easier, but it is guarded by Air Man and he gave up on beating Air Man and would say that if he has the Leaf Shield; however, he loses against Wood Man and no matter how hard he tries, he gives up.
