Dust Man is a Robot Master with a built in vacuum cleaner, originally created by Doctor Mikhail Cossack to be used for sanitation, being able to inhale any type of garbage smaller than him. His powerful suction power got Dr. Wily's attention and he was modified into a combat robot to fight against Mega Man in Mega Man 4. Dust Man's Special Weapon is the Dust Crusher, compacted scrap metal that launch debris in several directions upon impact. He can also pull opponents towards himself with his vacuum.
Dust Man while he is a good sanitation robot, he often overestimates the amount of garbage he can handle and thus often his vacuum jets jammed due to the mass amount of garbage he inhales, which requires him to be cleaned out. He enjoys spring cleaning and has a apparent dislike of rodents. His weakness is the Ring Boomerang which can jam his vacuum and render it not operational.
