Mega Man / Rockman series

Group Description

This group contains the main (numbered) Mega Man games (Rockman in Japan). The plot of these games takes place in the year 20XX. A scientist, Dr. Light, converted his worker robot, Rock, into a fighting robot, known as Mega Man. Mega Man fights an endless battle against the mad scientist, Dr. Wily, and the robots he creates. Mega Man's special talent is that he can steal the powers of any robot boss that he defeats and use it for himself. Games in the Mega Man series are platformers, distinguished by a recurrent feature of non-linear level progression: the player is typically able to choose to play through the game's stages in any order.



One of the concepts in the game by the creator Keiji Inafune, was a rock, paper, scissors concept in showing that every weapon and Robot Master has a strength and a weakness.

Megabit Size

Mega Man is 1 megabit in size, Mega Man 2 is 2 megabits, Mega Man 3 is 3 megabits, and Mega Man 4 is 4 megabits. However, this pattern doesn't continue any longer after that since Mega Man 5 and Mega Man 6 are also both 4 megabits.

Mega Man

  • When Capcom was producing the first game in the series, there were several names considered for the main character. Knuckles Kid was one suggestion, as was Rainbow Man (because the main character changed colors whenever he used a different weapon). They finally went with the name Rockman, which was changed to Mega Man when the game was released in the United States and Europe.
  • Mega Man made his first and regular animated appearance in the Saturday morning TV cartoon Captain N: The Game Master. He later had his own animated series and a comic book.


According to publisher Capcom, the Mega Man franchise, numbering 131 titles across several mediums including films and arcade machines, has sold around 30 million units worldwide (as of June 31, 2015).

Spiritual successor

A Kickstarter for a side-scrolling action game titled Mighty No. 9 was created by Keiji Inafune and his company Comcept. Due to the similarities between this game and the Mega Man series, it makes sense that most people would consider this a continuation of the Mega Man legacy.
