Cut Man is a Robot Master created by Dr. Light to be a lumberjack robot for one company, but scissors where not a good choice to cut trees, so Dr. Light had to cancel the order and made him his gardener. Dr. Wily, angry with the mistakes done by Dr. Light, stole his robots and reprogrammed them to help him conquer the world. He modified Cut Man and made his blades strong enough to cut trees and thin metal. After his defeat, Mega Man took him to repairs and returned to the original programming, but kept the modified appearance.
Cut Man is also the name of the first episode of season 1 in Rockman Animated. In this episode Rock is born, and is raised by Dr. Light. Two years after the birth of Rock, Roll is created. Several days after that, Sniper Joe's surrounded Dr. Light saying he was under arrest. Although Dr. Light wanted to know what he did wrong they didn't answer his question. They aimed their blasters towards Light, Rock and his sister made a quick by aiming the Joes' blasters towards each other. The punched, kicked, and used several items around them until the house was clear of Joes. The Screen on Dr. Light's monitor turned on, viewing Cut Man. Cut Man told them that he and five others were going to rule the Earth and rid the planet of humans and repopulate it with robots. Rock then took it upon himself to prevent such a thing from happening. He asked Dr. Light to remodel him into a robot master. Dr. Light was reluctant, but he knew he had no choice. And so, Rockman was born. Manbus were sent flying in his direction as he blast his way through millions of Suzies. After that mess was done and over with, he found himself surrounded by a large number of Cut Machines. Finally, he encountered several Big Eyes, but he managed to evade their strategy and demolish them from behind. After, all of that fighting he finally found Cut Man. Eventually, after quite a long battle, Rockman triumphed over Cut Man. He then walked up to where Cut Man lie motionless, collected his ability chip, picked up the body and teleported home. After Dr. Light repaired Cut Man, he told Rockman and Roll of a great being known as the legendary Yellow Devil. And so our hero's journey begins...

- ―Cut Man, Mega Man: The New Adventures
Cut Man appears in every episode of the Mega Man: The New Adventures anime series, as the one of Mega Man's main partners along with Guts Man. Originally intended for cutting trees, Cut Man now serves as Mega Man's ally. Although Cut Man is far too skilled (thus making him and Mega Man win a battle), his Rolling Cutters aren't deadly. Due to how overwhelming and silly he is, he becomes a favorite among fans of the show.
Like the Archies comics, Cut Man makes terrible cutting-related puns such as "It's slice to meet you!", although some of his lines, including the "Kung Fu Cutman" joke from the Mega Man cartoon, became a running joke among fans.
Cut Man also had his own talking plush. In the commercial for the talking Mega Man: The New Adventures plush toys, Crystal Man gets beaten by Cut Man easily.
Cut Man appears in The Many Adventures of Karyll Aguilar, as Karyll's Robot Master Partner along with Ice Man.

- ―Cut Man, Addie's Ultimate Paradise
Cut Man appears in every episode of Addie's Ultimate Paradise as the one of Addie's main partners along with Elec Man, Fire Man and Ice Man. Although being a goofy, naive child, Cut Man doesn't seem to get along with Bomb Man, Guts Man and Mega Man. Cut Man's cutter is super strong, cutting everything in sight. This is useful for clearing trees.
Cut Man appears in the final two episodes of Mega Man: The Legacy where he is named "Snippy" and bears a resemblance to the way he appears in the Mega Man: Fully Charged cartoon.
