Mega Man

video game franchise

Mega Man, also spelled Megaman, known as Rockman (ロックマン|Rokkuman) in Japan, is a title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man science fiction platforming game series by Capcom. Both the original and sequel series depict a robot boy, armed with a projectile energy weapon, fighting an army of robots to avert world domination.

Just the image of Mega Man standing [...] there's a sadness to it. Even his sprite has a certain gravity and seriousness to it [....] When I see a young child playing alone, in a park or in the middle of the street, playing by himself [...] there's something so sad about that sight, it can almost bring me to tears. And there's something similarly lonely about Mega Man [...]. In the backstory I wrote, Mega Man alone is equipped with the functionality to turn himself off. That very fact imbues him with a sadness. The other robot masters were made for some kind of specific job or work, so there's no need for them to have an "off switch" they can control. However, a robot helper like Mega Man can make his own judgements, and therefore can decide whether he's needed or not [...]. The sadness of being a robot is having this inorganic existence. ~ Akira Kitamura

Mega Man instruction manual edit

  • It’s MEGA MAN versus the powerful leaders and fighting forces of Monsteropolis-that strange multi-faceted land of robot-like Humanoids.
    Brilliant scientist Dr. Wright conceived the construction of fully-operational human-like experimental robots to perform specific everyday duties. Dr. Wright, and his assistant Dr. Wily, encouraged with their very first near-human robot – Mega Man proceeded to develop six additional humanoids, all programmed to perform prescribed rituals:
    Cutman: Designed to function as a lumberjack. Powerful saw-toothed scissor-like instrument protrudes from head, capable of gnawing through giant forest timbers.
    Gutsman: A bulldozing character capable of lifting and transporting huge boulders.
    Iceman: Impervious to chilling sub-zero temperatures, capable of human-like performances under extreme climatic conditions.
    Bombman: A real “blaster” as a heavy duty laborer who uses intensely powerful explosives to clear lands for Dr. Wright’s construction projects.
    Fireman: Melts and molds metals with flame throwing torch flaring from atop his head.
    Elecman: Dr. Wright’s electrifying creation- planned for conducting electrical operations – even supervising nuclear power plants.
    But, with the exception of MEGA MAN, all of Dr. wright’s near-human robot experimentation went awry. Assistant Dr. Wily turned disloyal, re-programming Dr. Wright’s Humanoids, now bent on destroying opposition so Dr. Wily could control the world and its resources.
    Resisting re-programming, MEGA MAN is chosen the defender of the universe and its inhabitants. MEGA MAN dares to single-handedly penetrate seven separate empires of Monsteropolis, eliminating the leaders and followers of these sovereignties.
    Get ready for some very exciting challenges!

Mega Man 2 edit

Mega Man 2 instruction manual edit

  • Some enemies are invulnerable to certain weapons, but usually one certain weapon will damage each opponent a great deal.
    • p.7
  • In addition to the weapons, there are three special transportation items. These are:
    Item: acquired when HeatMan is defeated. This is a levitation platform. Up to three may be launched at a time.
    Item: Acquired when AirMan is defeated. This is a jet sled. Use it to fly over difficult areas.
    Item: Acquired when FlashMan is defeated. This is an elevator and may only be used against a wall. This item is capable of traveling higher than the Levitation Platform.
    • p.8
  • As MEGA MAN defeats each enemy, he acquires their powers.
    HeatMan: The [H] Atomic Fire can throw three different sizes of fireballs. The longer you hold the fire button, the bigger the fireball.
    AirMan: The [A] Air Shooter throws small tornados
    WoodMan: The [W] Lead Shield creates a shield around you until you move. The leaves are then thrown in the direction the control pas is pushed.
    BubbleMan: The [B] Bubble Lead is a bubble that rolls on the ground in front of your and damages that it hits.
    QuickMan: The [O] Quick Boomerang can throw up to three boomerangs. Hold the fire button for continuous fire.
    FishMan: The [F] Time Stopper will freeze all enemies for a little while. Be careful. When this is used, it will continue until it is completely drained of energy. It cannot be turned off early.
    MetalMan: The [(M)]: Metal Blade is a gear. Up to three may be thrown in any direction the control pas is pushed. This is probably the best general purpose weapon and the energy lasts a long time.
    CrashMan: The [C] Crash Bomber can be thrown at walls and will detonate after a short delay. It may be used to get through certain walls.
    These weapons work with varying degrees of effectiveness on different opponents. It is best to experiment, especially when fighting the final robot of each level.

Protoman: It's ok. Take it. And... watch your back...

    I was careless! I feel so stupid to have been defeated so easily... Maybe I should give up and leave Wily to you!
Megaman: No. We are a team. Dr. Light will be glad to fix you up.
Bass: Thanks. I'm glad that I have a friend like you...

  • The world's pulse raced with excitement! Everyone truly believed the conniving Dr. Wily had been stopped for good and imprisoned by the valiant Mega Man. Reporters jockeyed with cameramen for snapshots as the infamous Doctor hung his head while being dragged away in handcuffs. Dr. Wily would soon be behind bars. Or would he?
    Dr. Wily was ready for anything. He had known his dastardly plans would end in failure some day, so after six months without contact his laboratory sprang to life. Monitors whirred into action, lights flashed and the lab control panel booted up. In no time four hidden robots emerged. The robots then began a rampage in search of their master. Wily had done it again. Nothing would get in their way!
    The world's racing pulse turned to nervous fear as a city was pummeled. Wasn't Dr. Wipy in jail? Why was this still happening? The four robots took no heed to the great robot creator named Dr. Light. Mega Man found Dr. Light and the canine cyborg Rush fallen in the streets.
    “Dr. Light? Are you O.K?” Mega Man shouted.
    “Mega Man! We have no time,” replied Dr. Light. “Dr. Wily is using his robots to cover up his escape. You must go! Follow his spaceship!!!”

    There is another Rush adaptor power called Rush Jet. It is hidden but if Mega Man finds it he can ride Rush's back to get across a dangerous area safely. The Rush Jet can also be purchased at Eddie's but isn't it better to find it for free?
    In Mega Man's most recent adventure, he acquired special Rush enhancements form Dr. Light that launched him high into the sky and also transformed his body armor to give him an extra Rocket Buster. Mega Man still has these abilities, but this time Power Mega Man and Jet Mega Man have been combined into one Rush power adaptor called the Super Adaptor (S. Adaptor). Once Mega Man finds the circuit plates that spell R U S H, they will automatically be teleported back to Dr. Light and Mega Man will be able to call up the Super Adaptor from the Weapon Select screen.

    The Rush Search is a power adaptor that allows Rush to find buried power-ups or items. He can also identify hidden passages. The Rush Search is a very helpful addition, so use it as much as you can to get special items and to find hidden rooms or pathways to special power-ups. You may save time and money (bolts) in the long run.

  • Dr. Wily: I'm impressed! I didn't think you'd make it this far, MegaMan! However, I don't have time to deal with you! Say goodnight!
  • Duo: This is what you people call "Evil Energy." According to the studies I've done so far, the one who obtained the original energy must be a being of complete evil. This kind of energy absorbs the evil in a person's mind and then multiplies. Judging by the quick rate of its growth, it'll take over the planet in a matter of days! We must stop it!
  • Bass: MegaMan! You can't escape this time!
MegaMan: Bass! Stop it! I don't want to fight you!
Bass: You're so naive. That will be your downfall! I'm not the same weakling anymore! I've got new powers!
MegaMan: ...No way!
No! You don't know how dangerous it is!
  • Bass: Let's do it! I'll show you what true power is!
MegaMan: No! That's not power! I must prove you are wrong again, Bass!

MegaMan: ...That's the same old apology Wily! Over and over again...
  • Duo: If your mind is not completely taken by the evil, you'll be saved. MegaMan... I can see into your mind...
    You... have been working so hard for justice.
    With your help, this planet will survive.

  • Mega Man, the second robot created by Dr. Thomas Light, was originally intended only to perform functions in the laboratory that Dr. Light could not. Slowly Dr. Light began using Mega Man for more and more advanced robotics experiments. One day, Mega Man walked in on Dr. Light listening to an intercepted transmission from the evil Dr. Wily. The transmission exposed Dr. Wily's plans for world domination. Mega Man convinced the good Dr. Light to let him chase down and eliminate the threat of his nemesis. Mega Man's days as a gofer in the lab were over.

    A holograph displaying the gentle face of the Titanium Titan gradually materialized, and Dr. Light breathed a sigh of relief. Mega Man was already in the vicinity.
    “Yes, Dr. Light. I have the readings. From the looks of it that comet was not an accident. I detect a high concentration of metal alloy in that fireball. I bet Dr. Wily is behind this”

  • EDDY “FLIP-TOP”
    Dr. Light made Eddy to transport things from the lab to his robots in the field. Now Eddy has been equipped with the ability to fly so, along with Eddy, Mega Man has some real fire power.

  • BEAT
    The famous crime-fighting bird named Beat is always out for world peace. Beat was built by Dr. Cossack, a long-time friend and colleague of Dr. Ligh. Cossack and Light worked together so well that Cossack gave Beat to Mega Man to support him in battle. While flying, Beat will dash out and attack if fully charged.

  • RUSH
    Where would any person be without a trust canine at their side? The same goes for the Blue Bomber and Rush the Robo Dog. Rush can transform himself into many different vehicles so Mega Man cannot do without him. All Rush powers have limited energy, and once you call on him you must use all the energy from that power.

Doctor Wily edit

  • "Wahahahaha! Ladies and gentlemen, your attention. please. The name's Wily! The one and only -- the brilliant scientist, Dr. Wily! It may seem rather sudden to you, but I've decided I'd like to take over the world! (Laughs) Ahem! Anyway, to begin... Dr. Light! I'll be taking your precious robots!!" - in the beginning of Mega Man: Powered Up
  • "Wha... Why you insolent fool! I will crush you with a loud, loud crunch!" - just before final boss 1 in Mega Man: Powered Up
  • "You forget, Mega Man. Robots cannot harm humans..." - at the end of Mega Man 7
  • "Kyahahaha! The world is mine!" - Megaman 8
  • "I hate Mega Man. He ruins everything."
  • Wily: "Why do you oppose me, the one who created you?"
    Bass: "Because you always interfere with me! I can defeat Mega Man by myself with no problem. You should go crawl in a hole somewhere."
    Wily: "You know, I think I regret creating you, pompous robot."
    Bass: "Ha! You created me? So what? If you created a powerful robot such as myself, it must have been an accident."
    Wily: "Funny you say that, you're actually right. I studied Mega Man hoping to create a similar robot. Then I developed a powerful energy called "Bassnium" purely by accident. Thus, I created you Bass. Currently Bassnium is the most powerful energy on Earth. But, that's not for long. Hee hee, I've learned from my accident... ...And I've created a new type of robot which is much more powerful than you or Mega Man! It'll be some time before I complete this project, though. You better get ready!"
    Bass: "Ha! This girlie-looking, long-haired robot will be the strongest? Don't make me laugh!"
    Wily: "Don't be so over-confident. This robot's power level is far superior to yours. And this is more than just a simple robot. With this robot and my other project complete, the world will be mine! No one will stop me! Hee hee hee hee!"
    Bass: "Yikes! This guy is as crazy as I thought." - at the end of Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters (when Bass wins the final stage alone)
  • Wily: "What do you mean he escaped?"
    Proto Man: "As in: Got away, vamoosed, departed, beat feet...”
    Wily:: "I know what the word means!" -At the Mega Man TV Show Episode The Day the Moon fell
  • "At last, the world will bow down to the genius of Doctor Wily!" -Mega Man 11

About Mega Man edit

  • Just the image of Mega Man standing [...] there's a sadness to it. Even his sprite has a certain gravity and seriousness to it [....] When I see a young child playing alone, in a park or in the middle of the street, playing by himself [...] there's something so sad about that sight, it can almost bring me to tears. And there's something similarly lonely about Mega Man [...]. In the backstory I wrote, Mega Man alone is equipped with the functionality to turn himself off. That very fact imbues him with a sadness. The other robot masters were made for some kind of specific job or work, so there's no need for them to have an "off switch" they can control. However, a robot helper like Mega Man can make his own judgements, and therefore can decide whether he's needed or not [...]. The sadness of being a robot is having this inorganic existence.
