MegaMan was created by Dr. Hikari and was given to Lan as a present. Lan uses a disk his dad gave him to customize his NormalNavi. In the following morning, MegaMan wakes Lan up. Lan is initially disappointed that MegaMan is small, but when viruses attack, MegaMan displays amazing skill, which made Lan take back what he said and accepting MegaMan as an awesome present.Jack In! MegaMan!

MegaMan has a NetBattle with GutsMan the next day, which MegaMan easily gaining the upper hand with his speed, and even superior strength despite his small frame, as he had stopped a Guts Punch easily with one hand. Their battle was interrupted when Roll arrived, saying that Maylu's house was on fire. Using the Net, MegaMan, Roll, and GutsMan arrived at Maylu's house network, and deleted the viruses, but was then attacked by TorchMan. Without Lan being there plugged in to send Battle Chips, MegaMan was being overwhelmed by the fire Navi, who had easily defeated GutsMan. However, right as MegaMan was about to be next, Lan had plugged his PET in, allowing MegaMan to use the Blaster and CyberSword, to quickly defeat TorchMan, forcing him to retreat. This event lets him make quick friends with Roll, which eventually leads her to love him.

Similar to TorchMan, MegaMan ended up also having to face the WWW Navis ElecMan and WackoMan, where he was at a disadvantage at first due to Lan having to help others, but then coming to give MegaMan the Battle Chips needed to defeat them. He also had to help Glide when he was attacked by NumberMan, who was attempting to take Yai's rare Battle Chips.

Along the way, he also had rematches with Mr. Match, Count Zap, and Maddy, though he had more trouble in those battles and required others to assist him to win, such as Roll helping him defeat TorchMan, WoodMan appearing to stop the flow of electricity so that ElecMan couldn't regenerate, and IceMan to stop WackoMan. Lan had also obtained a new Battle Chip, the ElecSword, which likely came from Commander Beef, being the perfect match against the Jelly viruses that MegaMan was facing.

However, MegaMan faced a powerful WWW NetNavi when he came face to face with Yahoot and MagicMan, who managed to overpower MegaMan, and it was the intervention of ProtoMan that saved MegaMan and forced MagicMan to retreat. It was then that MegaMan and Lan began their heavy rivalry with Chaud and ProtoMan.

Before MegaMan entered the N1 Grand Prix, he and the others had to find NumberMan, who had gone berserk after a major, yet faulty, upgrade by Higsby. They lured NumberMan by having Yai's computer calculate the exact number for Pi, which goes infinitely, and due to NumberMan having a love for numbers, he followed after it. After luring him in, MegaMan and the others fought. Due to NumberMan being more powerful, and MegaMan having to avoid hurting him too much, due to Higsby begging them not to as he wanted to enter the tournament as well, it was a very difficult fight. It was only when SkullMan, a then unknown Navi, arrived out of nowhere that NumberMan was defeated and reclaimed.

MegaMan's first opponent ended up being none other than SkullMan, who was under Miyu's ownership, which surprised both Lan and MegaMan. Miyu stated that the battle would be over in 5 minutes, with SkullMan as the victor, which made the duo determined to prove the fortune teller wrong. However, when the battle began, all their attacks had little to no effect, as if SkullMan could predict their movements before they made them. Just then things seemed lost, Lan decided to keep trying and used the MiniBoomers that Higsby had given him, which allowed him to fight more effectively, changing strategies and even damaging SkullMan, much to Miyu's shock, as she said that the future had changed. Despite how SkullMan could have continued to fight and most likely would have won, Miyu logged her Navi out, forfeiting the match.

They later enter the N1 Grand Prix, during which Lan and MegaMan try to master the Program Advance. In the final round, MegaMan and ProtoMan fight each other, with ProtoMan as the victor. However, their battle awakens PharaohMan who deletes MegaMan. He is later rebuilt and defeats PharaohMan with the help of ProtoMan using a double Program Advance. In the second season, MegaMan and Lan face off against the criminal organization Grave using various Style Changes.

Other appearances

In both instances he is revived sometime after.
    • Despite receiving all of the Double Souls from Mega Man Battle Network 4, MegaMan does not gain any of the Double Souls introduced in Mega Man Battle Network 5 in the anime besides Gyro Soul.
