Proto Man (ブルース, Blues) is a character from the Mega Man universe.
Proto Man is a prototype robot built by Dr. Light, and thus serves as an "older brother" to Mega Man and Roll. After he was completed, Dr. Light discovered a power defect, which would end up depleting Proto Man's power supply. He tried to fix Proto Man, but Proto Man was programmed with independence, which he thought Dr. Light was going to remove, so he fled, and Dr. Light, having learned from the defect, perfected the power supply and created Mega Man and Roll before creating the Robot Masters. Proto Man was discovered by Dr. Wily, who fixed his energy core. He has similar abilities to Mega Man, such as an arm cannon and the Variable Weapons System, but also carries a shield and has a distinctive whistle tune to announce his presence. Proto Man was initially allied with Dr. Wily and would help him in his schemes, but later games depict him as an aloof ally to Mega Man. Dr. Wily attempts to frame Proto Man as the villain in Mega Man 5, but the impostor Dark Man is ultimately revealed by the real Proto Man. Proto Man is also playable in several games, such as Mega Man Powered Up, Mega Man 9, and Mega Man 10.
Proto Man appears in Super Smash Bros. 4 with three roles.
In Smash Tour
In Smash Tour, Proto Man is a green item. A player using Proto Man will cause any items that target them to be reflected back to the attacking item's user. This resembles how his signature shield blocks projectiles in his own series.

Proto Man's trophy is exclusive to the Wii U version.
- Proto Man
- A prototype robot developed by Dr. Light. After his completion, a critical problem was found in his energy core. He fled Dr. Light's care to die alone but was then recovered by Dr. Wily and converted into a fighting machine. Since then, he's been both friend and foe to Mega Man and always something of a lone wolf.
