Clown man is easy just tornado hold until asplode.

Also Mega Man 8 Saturn and Playstation versions as well as English and Japanese would have different placements.

I wish Tier List would have included the X, Zero and ZX games so I had more stuff to rank.
Those games rank very differently than Classic Mega Man.

X Series

X1
X4
X2
X3
Both Gameboy games
X5
X8
X7
X6

That doesn't make up for the fact Capcom was so out of ideas, they created Clown Man.

Remember that Mega Man Robot masters were decided by a contest. They CHOSE Clown Man out of thousands of entries.
Then went to the Nintendo Power Pool for 9-11.

There are only so many concepts you can use before you get to NSFW Robot Masters.

I don't mind Clown man. His stage theme is catchy the stage is fun and if you have his weakness he's easy.

I can't say the same for some of the stages in 11. Bounce Man and Torch Man...I hope somebody got fired....

I utterly hated Clown Man's music, voice, and stage. That said, it's not the worst in Mega Man. It's just pretty bad.

Keep in mind I mainly play Rockman 8

and no...the Japanese voices aren't much better. But at least Clown Man doesn't sound like one of the Angry Beavers.

Clown Man's music is harmless compared to this monster:

Friendly reminder of these underrated gems:

I think it gets harder for me to rank the rest of the main line series, other than Mega Man X1 is another one of my top favorites. Although on the easy side compared to its sequels and I hate how you don't have the dashing by default for the opening stage, it's just such a perfect game otherwise with some of the best music. X2-X3 do a nice job upping the difficulty and experimenting with the X armor. X4 is gorgeous but goes a little too hard on the extra dialogue with bosses and stuff, then there's X5 which has loads of design issues, but it's still ultimately fun. Truth be told I love X6, it's absolutely insane and balls to the wall, but I find that fitting as a huge fan of the series, it's awesome to get a really demented and hard game in the series. Hardcore territory.

X8 was a one and done thing for me back in the day. Couldn't stomach much of it again when I sampled it via the X Legacy Collection.

X7 is somehow even worse than MM7. The 7's are horrifying.

I don't recall liking ZX much, but I played ZX Advent a year or two ago and was pleasantly surprised by that one. Some of the toughest bosses in the franchise!

Zero 1 has some serious issues with the timed triggers and limited lives. Zero 2-3 are excellent though and 4 has some peaks of awesomeness, along with one of the coolest final boss fights in the franchise.

Mega Man V's space theme rocks! I need to check out IV sometime which I hear is good as well.

The ZX Games I like in theory Mega Mantroidvania but I need time with them.

The X Series is just Garbage after X5.

I literally got a migraine from X6. X7 needs action replay codes to be decent and X8 is so hard I can't make a dent in it. Even the music in x6-8 is trash.

I don't hate Mega Man 7 but I'm not a fan of splitting it up.

I need more time with Zero

DO NOT like Legends.

Even X7-X8 have great music despite me not liking the games. Time to get your ears examined.

Legends 1-2 are incredible.

There are like 4 tunes from x8 I can pull from memory and they're alright doesn't really fit the Mega Man X vibe.

Nothing from X7 stands out to me other than the opening stage, I don't remember anything else from the soundtrack.

We're over due for the Elf wars in game form.
