The Mega Man franchise has had many animated promos that are longer than commercials. These promos are around 2-3 minutes in length and can contain an original story exclusive to the promo.

Mega Man (Ruby-Spears)


Mega Man Ruby-Spears Cartoon Sales Pitch VHS 1994

A promotional VHS for the 1994 animated series Mega Man was made as a pitch to bring a Mega Man anime to America. This promo was vastly different than the cartoon that was made, and featured an anime art style closer to the art featured in the games.

The promo features a narrator who explains the franchise to the audience as the video plays. It starts with the Mega Man logo, which was kept for the actual cartoon, before zooming in on a city where it shows Doctor Thomas Light along with Roll and Rush working on Mega Man. It then shows Mega Man running along crumbling skyscrapers before switching a shot of Doctor Albert W. Wily pulling levers and a shot of him surrounded by Yellow Devils and Yellow Devil MK-IIs. It then switches to a a legion of Robot Masters charging as Gemini Man pushes Elec Man out of the front of the charge. It then shows shots of Mega Man bursting out of the water while riding Rush Jet, getting picked up by Rush Jet in a desert, and Rush Jet fleeing from some Killer Bombs before throwing them off, causing them to explode.

It then shows Mega Man fighting Dark Man 2 and Gemini Man and jumping on some Appearing Blocks and then goes to a brief shot of some wiring and transitioning to Mega Man falling between some skyscrapers and curiously Wall Kicking down them. It then shows Mega Man dodging a pantheon of Killer Bombs and Adhering Suzys before showing Cut Man using his Rolling Cutter on Mega Man, who jumps on the Rolling Cutter and riding it back to Cut Man. The Rolling Cutter cuts the ground beneath Cut Man and he falls in. Mega Man is then shown grabbing onto a oddly small Big Eye and crashing it into Elec Man. Mega Man fights some Pepes underwater before it switches to a shot of him dodging Fire Storms and debris before smacking into Fire Man.

Rockman Online teaser


Rockman Online - Trailer 2 HD

The cancelled game Rockman Online had two animated trailers.

The first trailer featured an arrange of Drill Man's stage theme. It starts with a shot of the world from space at night and then a lit-up city before transitioning into a DNA-like sequence that zooms out to Rockman's eye. It then shows a shot of the city in either the morning or dusk as a large crowd of robots riot in the streets. One robot drags another robot before a larger one carrying a large metal pole with some debris on it, who proceeds to bring the pole up over his head and presumably down onto the victim robot. It then shows the same shot of the world but with a red light emitting from a certain spot in it. It then transitions to the city where this red spot begins to spread like a wave over the city and the all over the world. Dr. Light is shown getting up in shock as a beeping sounds are heard. A room in a skyscraper possibly with Dr. Light in it is then seen exploding and before switching to a shot of the explosion from outside as it is seen that the city in in flames. Rockman is then seen trying to get past a legion of marching robots to Roll, who is pushed away from him. Dr. Wily is then seen laughing manically in front of several screens and a shot of the city crumbling and in flames is shown. It then switches to a shot of Iris and Alia frantically operating and then a shot of a Yellow Devil lumbering through the city and then a shot of Signas watching the situation. It then shows a quick pain over the city that leads to Rockman standing a rooftop before showing a shot of the original six Robot Masters from the first game, and then Rockman jumping off the rooftop down to the chaos below. It then shows him facing |Blues in battle and then Forte walking in a waste land with a blank expression wearing a cape. It then switches to a shot of a tall skyscraper in the middle of the city with a red energy emitting from it and then another shot of the Yellow Devil in the city, then switches to an unknown device in the center of a spherical structure and a mysterious robot with red eyes and a red light coming from the top of his helmet. It shows Rockman and Blues fighting once more, a stranger energy capsule being held by an unknown person or robot, Rockman jumping from a building, Rockman struggling on the floor, Forte with a crazed smirk on his face, and ends with Rockman charming his buster and shooting at the screen.

The second trailer focused on the Rockman X series characters, having only four from the original series.
