Story Edit

In Mega Man Battle Network, he is a member of the WWW that used his NetNavi FireMan.EXE to cause criminal fires to search for a superprogram for Lord Wily. He disguised himself as a NetSafety repair man and hacked into the control panel of houses to spread viruses in the oven, making them explode, but FireMan.EXE is stopped by Lan and MegaMan when he took control of the oven in his house. He is later seen with other WWW members.

In Mega Man Battle Network 2, he appeared in the airport with HeatMan.EXE as his Navi, and challenges the player to a NetBattle.

In Mega Man Battle Network 3, he pretended that he quit the WWW and is now a good person, starting to work in SciLab and using his Navi FlameMan.EXE to help Lan against weak WWW Navis sent by him. He lured Lan into installing three malicious programs in the SciLab computers that caused the place to reach high temperatures. Match revealed himself to Lan as a WWW member and challenged him to extinguish the flames he spread through the web. After extinguishing all flames, Mr. Match called him to Undernet 3 and fought against him with FlameMan. He had the advantage, but Bass.EXE appeared and deleted FlameMan, forcing Mr. Match to retreat. The security of SciLab weakened after this, and several scientists, including Lan's father, were sent to the hospital. He appeared again with Anetta and PlantMan.EXE in Castle Wily, where they used Full Synchro and fought MegaMan at the same time. After Wily's defeat, he and the other WWW members were taken in custody and sent to a hospital.

In Mega Man Battle Network 4, he appeared randomly with FireMan in the Den Battle Tournament, and again if the player fights BurnerMan.EXE in the Eagle Tournament.

In Mega Man Battle Network 6, he became a teacher at Cyber Elementary School and gave Lan his first Link Navi and Cross after the defeat of DiveMan.EXE.
