An Official NetBattler (オフィシャルネットバトラー Ofisharu Netto Batorā) is a NetBattler from the Mega Man Battle Network series that has license to Jack-in and Net Battle anywhere to help the NetPolice fight against Net-crime.
Eugene Chaud is an ace Official NetBattler.
A city NetBattler (しみんネットバトラー Shimin Netto Batorā) is a civilian NetBattler that can represent Official NetBattlers when they are not available and can accept requests from citizens in the Official Center in Marine Harbor, helping in tasks such as delete viruses, find persons, trade Battle Chips and more. Lan, Dex, Mayl and Yai all gain a city NetBattler ZLicense early in Mega Man Battle Network 2, and Lan's rank increases later. After FreezeMan's defeat, netcrime is at high and most Official NetBattlers are busy, so city NetBattlers are requested to investigate Kotobuki Square.
In the anime, a NetSaver, known as NetSavior (ネットセイバー Netto Seibā) in Japan, is similar to an Official NetBattler. Lan Hikari becomes a NetSaver in MegaMan NT Warrior Axess. Chaud and Raika also are NetSavers.
NetBattlers can become an Official NetBattler by receiving a license, which requires the person to be above the age of 18. However, an Official NetBattler license can be given to an underaged person in certain conditions, in which they must receive permission from the Net Police. Lan received an Official NetBattler license in the end of Volume 1's chapter 5. Chaud also is an Official NetBattler, and they are the only known Official NetBattlers to obtain a license under the age of 18 due to their remarkable skills and the ability to perform Full Synchro.
