The Photon Man is a cheat unit in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. Once the code is typed, the unit spawns immediately at the Town Center. Building a new Town Center automatically spawns the unit at that Town Center. Photon Man has the appearance of a futuristic looking spacesuit armed with a laser gun.

It is classified as a Hand Cannoneer, with similar projectiles to its Age of Empires counterpart. However, the Photon Man has a much lower DPS than the Laser Trooper.
