Mega Man 6
As a botanical Robot, Plant Man's appearance belies his robotic origins. He was the mascot at his botanical garden in South America and could be quite shy when attention was drawn to him. He was changed into a combat model when the Tournament hosted by Mister X was announced and became one of the Final 8 thanks to his Plant Barrier Attack. Plant Man was reprogrammed by Mister X into serving as a general in his Robot Army, though was later defeated by Mega Man in battle, who copied his ability.
In the Archie Comics volume, Plant Man was created by Dr. Pedro Astil with the help of Dr. Light. His unique botanical basis makes him invulnerable to electromagnetic pulses.
