Mega Man has battled nearly 100 Robot Masters in his numbered series alone, blasting his way through hordes of lowly minions to topple and absorb the power of his greatest foes. So that got us thinking; which of these diabolical contraptions are the best of the best?

The Mega Man Legacy Collection is due out next week for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC, introducing gamers to pixel-perfect recreations of the first six games in the Mega Man series. Along with all of those games, players will be able to enjoy a Challenge Mode, leaderboards and save replays. There’s also going to be a huge museum of artwork, a music box boasting each soundtrack and multiple display options that let you recreate the feeling of playing these games on an old monitor or CRT TV.

Similar to those Mario fellas, Link and Samus Aran, the Blue Bomber got his start on the Nintendo Entertainment System and has been one of the pillars of the medium ever since. In short, everyone knows Mega Man.

To prepare for Mega’s latest outing, we decided to rank the top five Robot Masters from the first six Mega Man games. Get ready for a nostalgia trip, fans, and prepare to face these baddies all over again when Mega Man Legacy Collection launches next week.

5. Quick Man
Introduced in Mega Man 2, Quick Man is one of those Robot Masters who embodies his name (Unlike Guts Man, who conjures up a much more terrifying image than what he actually looks like). While earlier Masters were typically about firepower, Quick Man’s strength was his speed, darting about the level and making himself an extremely difficult target to hit. Quick Man wasn’t completely defensive, though, as he also hurls loads of killer boomerangs that, when acquired, become a fun new weapon for Mega Man to use.
