One of Dr. Cossack's robot masters introduced in Capcom's 1991 Mega Man 4 Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game. Using his head and arm mounted drills, Drill Man has the ability to burrow into and travel through almost any solid substance. He likes to use this skill to launch surprise attacks from beneath his opponent's feet, ripping them to bits before they realize what's happening. As an added bonus, Drill Man's drills, when rotating at the extreme speeds needed for this endeavor, deflect any and all weapons fire, making him invincible while digging. When Drill Man tires of confusing his enemy by drilling in and out of the bedrock of his lair, he attacks with his Drill Bombs - armor piercing high explosives that can be remotely detonated before impact if Drill Man so chooses.
Drill Man, despite his use of them himself, is vulnerable to explosives - a volley of Dive Man's heat-seeking Dive Missiles will reduce Drill Man to scrap metal.
