Tengu Man is a Robot Master from Mega Man 8. He is equipped with a razor-winged jet engine on his back that grants him high-speed flight, a retractable triple-bladed weapon on his arm, and the ability to summon cutting blades of air and whirlwinds to trap and blow his opponents to their doom. He fights with the boldness of a teenager, and speaks like one too, having noticeably brash and overconfident mannerisms. Tengu Man was created by Doctor Albert W. Wily, modeled after the Tengu, a Japanese yōkai, and was stationed within a high mountain range in Japan to occupy Mega Man.
