Publisher's Summary

Dr. Wily is trying to take over the world with his stolen Robot Masters, but he didn't count on Mega Man! The young hero is tearing through the would-be world- conquering robots - but is the power going to his head?


Let the Games Begin! - Part Three: Power Get!

Mega Man takes on Elec Man, who has based himself in a power plant and is routing electricity to metal areas as traps, which Mega Man avoids. As Elec Man is talking with Dr. Wily, Mega Man appears and disrupts the call before defeating him with a Rolling Cutter and obtaining Elec Man's Thunder Beam. Dr. Wily tells his drones to recover Elec Man and be on standby to recover the bodies of the remaining Robot Masters if they are defeated. In his assault against Ice Man, Mega Man is more aggressive, and even more so against Fire Man, knocking him out without even letting him finish his sentence.

Dr. Light has been working on a new weapon and, with the defeat of Fire Man, quickly teleports Rock home and traps him in a box of magnetic waves. Mega Man accuses Dr. Light of betraying him and tries to break free of the box with every weapon he has while Dr. Light watches silently, and he only calms down when he notices that Roll is watching. She begins to cry and runs from the room, leaving him feeling guilty. Mega Man tells Dr. Light that he wants all of his weapons taken away after the battle is over, including the Mega Buster, as they made him as evil as Wily. Dr. Light reassures him saying that he is not evil, but a little robot boy given too much power while carrying the fate of the world in his shoulders. Dr. Light then explains that while he created Rock with a human-like appearance, his feelings are his own, and a childish tantrum is hardly the same as evil. Light asks Rock if he still wants to stop Wily and save everyone, which Rock says yes, and then says to him that to do so, he will need the weapons he fought to obtain, also giving him a new weapon, the Magnet Beam. Rock apologizes to his creator, who understands and hugs him. He then apologizes to Roll and while he recharges energy with a Energy Tank, Dr. Light analyzes the data obtained by Mega Man and discovers the location of Dr. Wily's hideout, the factory used to create Rock and the Robot Masters. Mega Man teleports to Wily's fortress for the final battle.

Short Circuits


Roll is scary.

Mega Man apologizes to Roll for losing control earlier, but Roll admits she couldn't imagine how she'd react with such power. Mega Man tries to imagine it herself and day-dreams Roll using Fire Storm as the "ultimate cleanser".



Special Weapons



  • Dr. Light's speech was based on the chorus' lyrics for the song The Message From Dr. Light by The Megas.
