Mega Man 2
At the start of the battle, intercept him in the middle of the room, then do a jump-shot attack. As you do this, he'll also do a jump-shot so keep moving away from him to escape the explosion of his Crash Bomber. After that, intercept him a do the jump-shot attack again. Do this repeatedly, even though it would take long to defeat him this way, you'll have a better chance of no-damage.
Crash Man is weak against Air Shooter, which you can get if you defeat Air Man beforehand. Do the strategy above, but this time, shoot the Air Shooter as soon as Crash Man launches into the air. This way 2 of the 3 Air Shooters launched will hit him. There are instances that you can defeat him in one shot!
In Dr, Wily Stage 4, you will encounter Crash Man again for a rematch. Use the Air Shooter to defeat him easily.
Crash Man has a very odd AI. At the start of your duel with him, try not moving an inch & you'll watch him run back & forth the room without initiating an attack. Like Fire Man, you can follow him & still he won't attack you. Crash Man will attack you if you use your Mega Buster.
Mega Man 3
The battle with the Doc Robot as Crash Man will throw Crash Bombers. This is same as the same strategy in Mega Man 2. His weakness is the Hard Knuckle or Top Spin.
Mega Man: The Power Battle
Crash Man will throw three Crash Bombers if not attacked. Mega Man can go through the walls, but he must avoid going through it when Crash Man is on the air. His weakness is the Rolling Cutter.
Crash Man only appeared in Mega-Pinocchio in Ruby Spears' Mega Man. Crash Man appeared in a brief scene in the city and he calls his Crash Bombers "Time Bombs" and then wasn't seen again.
Crash Man in Captain N is green and has a silver body with a circle with a lightning bolt.
- Crash Man is also known as Clash Man in Japan.
