Hello, Antarctica! And you folks in Greenland, too! The next part of our shout-out to all of the Mega Man fans in some of the world's colder regions continues today with a look at the chilly boss from the Classic series' only Super NES installment, Mega Man 7. Ryudo takes on patrolling Petaforths, ice-slinging Shirokumachine GTVs, tough-as-nails True Shield Attackers, inconveniencing Icicle Tecks, Sniper Joe 01 sentries, Bomb Sleighs, and other little robotic critters and doo-dads in a perfect no-damage run to a one-on-one showdown with the ferocious Freeze Man:

You know, I've always wondered: I get the idea of a dinosaur skeleton lurking in the background, perhaps frozen long ago by the harsh forces of the elements. But why is it a robot dinosaur skeleton?
Check back with us in a few days, when we'll continue our tribute to the arctic-themed archenemies of the Blue Bomber!
