Based off of the popular video game, Megaman. In the year 200X, robot scientists Dr. Thomas Light and Dr. Albert Wily were completing their special project, helper robots, which will help humans with everyday work. However, Dr. Wily had secretly reprogrammed the helper robots into fighting machines. Wily intends to use these robots to take over the world. After Dr. Light learned of this, he had decided to reprogram one of his other helper robots. He has chosen Rock (his male helper robot). Dr. Light gave Rock state-of-the-art combat technology, with the ability to copy another robot's weapon, thus Dr. light created Megaman. Now, Megaman has to stop Dr. Wily and his band of robots from taking over the world. Written by John Wiggins

Proto Man is evil in the show but was a good guy in the games. This show, along with the (confusing) plot from the video game Mega Man 5, convinced many people that the character is evil. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the first season, an instrumental version of the title theme music played over the end credits. In the second season, generic modern rock songs (which have no connection to the show whatsoever) played over the credits. These second season songs were later released on a soundtrack CD (even though the songs had nothing to do with Mega Man apart from being played over the show's credits.) See more »

From a nostalgic point of view.
8 January 2004 | by (Here, There) – See all my reviews

I remember this show in a fair bit of detail. The voices, the episodes, the things that were different from the game, the fact that I woke up at 6am to watch it.

It's a departure from the plot of the games, but so what? Until Forte/Bass or the X games came along there was hardly a real plot to Megaman. Imagine for a second what kind of cartoon it would have made

"Wily has made 8 robots again! I better stop him by going though various stages and fight all 8 robots!" Not going to work.

I can see why Protoman was made a villain. The role suits him decently and it's not like he was a total villain (some episodes you could see him inching closer to the good guys). It may not be the Protoman(or Blues if you will) we all knew and loved, but it was still a good character. (Now if Forte/Bass was in the picture that psychopath would have probably taken Protoman's place, but sadly this was before his time)

While there was little in the way of a real plot the individual episodes were pretty entertaining to me when I was 11. I saw the differences from the game but I still enjoyed it. I almost burst into tears of happiness when they finally had X and Sigma on the series (even if Sigma was only on a screen for 10 seconds).

The voice acting was decent and I have trouble picturing Megaman with any other voice, same goes for X (in X4 and X7 X's voices seem so very wrong to me). It's not like we all haven't heard the exact same voices from the same voice actors before but they worked and worked consistently.

The animation was really very good as best as I can remember. I actually prefer the style of it to the anime style of the Megaman EXE series (and it's rare that I prefer american animation over anime style). It just seems to fit the overall theme of Megaman well.

It wasn't a perfect cartoon by any means...but it did manage to wake me up at 6am and it's only one of 2 things in my life that has ever managed to do that.
