Pink Punch Meiru (ピンクパンチメイル Pinku Panchi Meiru) is the 28th episode of Rockman.EXE Stream. It features Meiru Sakurai achieving Cross Fusion for the first time after failing to do so in episode 42 of Rockman.EXE Axess.


The episode begins with Netto, as Cross Fusion Rockman fighting Takeo Inukai and Asteroid BeastMan in Neo WWW's latest scheme. Outside the Dimensional Area, Meiru, Rush and Dekao (who is making a delivery) are cheering for him. Netto made short work of the Asteroid, forcing Inukai to retreat. After the Dimensional Area disappeared and Netto reverts back to his normal form, his friends come over to congratulate him over his latest success. Seeing how tired he is, Dekao treats his friend for lunch much to Netto's excitement. At Maha Ichiban, Netto reveals that he had been busy lately as he is the only Net Savior around who can performed Cross Fusion to combat the Asteroids. Enzan, on the other hand, is still at Ameroppa and has yet to make any plans to return. After Netto left, Dekao and Meiru discuss on how should they make Netto's job a little easier and Dekao came up with a brilliant idea.

At the Ministry of Science, Dekap requested Dr. Hikari to allow him and GutsMan to perform Cross Fusion. Dr. Hikari was hesitant to help him due several reasons but with Dekao's persistence, he had no choice but to comply. Instead of teaching him how to perform Cross Fusion however, Dr. Hikari took Dekao and Meiru to a tour around the lab and bid them farewell after a trip to the gift shop. Dekao was too engrossed with the trip that he failed to realize that he was tricked until Meiru reminded him about the initial reason for their visit. Dekao entered the lab again and demanded to see Dr. Hikari but the people in charge at the main lobby stated that Dr. Hikari is in a meeting and that they may not see him until after. Just then, Meijin entered the lobby and asked what all the commotion is about. Upon listening to Dekao's plan, Meijin took interest in it and asked the children to follow him to his lab.

Meijin first explained that until now, the only way that Navis could materialize into the Real World is with the use of a Synchro Chip or a Dimensional Chip. However, a Navi in the past had found a different way to do so. Meiru immediately remembers about the time ShadeMan turned Rush into a Synchro Chip and used it to enter the Real World and cause havoc. Meijin believes that if the same process can be done again, Cross Fusion might be possible. After bringing Rush to his lab, Meijin scanned him and found out that the data that turned Rush into a chip was still within him. Rush is given a Synchro Chip Case which will allow him to transform into a chip and can be slot in as usual. When Rush realized that he will be performing Cross Fusion with Dekao and GutsMan, he immediately cowered towards Meiru, apparently in fear of Dekao and that he refuses to be used by him. Rush would rather Cross-Fuse with Meiru and Roll instead. Meiru was surprised as even though she used to dream of performing Cross Fusion, she is now fighting Asteroids which are much more powerful than anything she fought before. Frightened by Dekao, Rush immediately escaped into the Cyber World and Meiru asked Roll to find him. Just then, Meijin received a report about viruses appearing at the newly open Dinosaur Land and Netto had already been sent to investigate. Upon hearing this, Meiru and Dekao immediately leave the lab and head to the theme park.

At Dinosaur Land, Netto was informed by the person in charge about the case and denies seeing any viruses but is still willing to allow Netto to investigate. Meiru and Dekao arrived and dragged Netto into the park under the guise of investigating. At first Netto was furious that the two of them are taking things lightly but after a while, even he start to enjoy the attractions the park provides. Unknown to them, Narcy Hide was also at the park, carrying out Neo WWW's latest scheme. In the Cyber World, GutsMan continue to chase Rush but fails miserably. Eventually, Roll scolded and told him to stop running and go to where Meiru and the others are.

Back in the real world, Netto and his friends enter an area that was supposedly closed for construction. Inside, the trio were shocked to find a giant Walla and other giant viruses that are in the Real World. Narcy reveals himself to the children and explain his newest plan to them. Using Asteroid VideoMan's ability to magnify and replicate objects, he planned to create an army of viruses to attack the city. Once Narcy summons VideoMan to attack them, Netto requested Meijin to activate at Dimensional Area. In his Cross Fusion form, Netto is about to fight VideoMan but found himself outnumbered as VideoMan summons the viruses he created to help him. This combined with his already exhausted state has put Netto in the mercy of the villains. Just then, Roll informs Meiru that she had brought Rush with her. After being forced by Dekao, Rush complied and transformed into a Synchro Chip. Dekao began slotting the chip into his PET and a bright light envelops him. This shocked everyone around him but instead of Cross Fusion, an explosion suddenly occurred, cancelling the process and injuring Dekao. Meijin just remembered that he had not checked Dekao and GutsMan's Synchro Rate and the reason of their failure is probably that it is too low.

VideoMan continued his attack on Netto. Due to the sheer number of viruses, Netto is unable to counter attack. As Meiru wondered how can she help her childhood friend, Meijin contacted her. Remembering that Meiru and Roll had high Synchro Rate after being tested by Dr. Hikari in the past, Meijin tells Meiru to perform Cross Fusion instead. Meiru was still nervous in doing so but seeing the boy she is in love with in trouble, Meiru eventually gets over it and tells Rush to transform into a Synchro Chip again. Unlike her last encounter with the Darkloid SwordMan, Cross Fusion is a success this time and Meiru finally is able to transform into C.F. Roll. In her new form, Meiru is able to injure VideoMan and open a Rush Hole to send the viruses back into the Cyber World. After several consecutive hits, Netto and Meiru is able to defeat VideoMan, foiling Narcy's plan.

Once the two of them return to their normal form, Netto compliments Meiru how strong she is in her Cross Fusion form. After Meijin contacts them again and inform how high Meiru and Roll's Synchro Rate is, Netto tells Meiru good luck in helping him fight the Asteroids from that day on. Upon hearing this, Rush immediately runs away as he refuses to become a Rush Synchro Chip again. Roll explains that any injuries Meiru receives in their Cross Fusion form, Rush will also receive. Netto expresses his disappointment as he believed he had found "Enzan's replacement". Realizing that she was being treated as "Enzan's replacement" Meiru leaves Netto angrily but secretly in her mind, she promises to herself that if Netto ever needs that kind of help again, she will gladly perform Cross Fusion for him. At MaHa Ichiban, Dekao wonders how to increase his Synchro Rate so he could perform Cross Fusion, too. Just then, Netto received another case and head off to investigate. Meiru tells Rush that they should follow him too but he had already escaped into the Cyber World.

  • When Meiru failed to perform Cross Fusion last season, her PET gave out an error. However, when Dekao tried it, his PET explodes. Meijin made the assumption that his probably "low" Synchro Rating is to blame. Meiru's previous failure at Cross Fusion was probably because her PET was unable to recognize the Synchro Chip which was designed for use with Netto's PET.
