Proto Man is a prototype robot designed and made by Dr. Light, and was also the first robot master ever created. As he was only a prototype design, he ended up developing a life-threatening problem in his energy core, but refused his creatorâ€TMs help, fearing that it would cost him his individuality. After fleeing and wandering the world, he was found almost dead by the evil Dr. Wily, who not only saved his life, but also equipped Proto Man with the Proto shield: a special armament that can deflect most projectiles. Having initially sworn loyalty to the evil scientist, Proto Man later sided with and now fights alongside Megaman in the battle against evil. First 4 Figures is proud to reveal Proto Man: the mysterious masked Robot Master who made his debut in Megaman 3 on the Nintendo Entertainment System.
