Prog (プログ Purogu) is a family of viruses from Mega Man Battle Network. This virus was originally a green program, but over the course of game events got corrupted by World Three. The fate they now face is a slow and painful demise caused by their fragmented data crumbling into oblivion. Corrupt programs are unfortunately beyond recovery and must be deleted to put them out of their misery. This is supported by the dialogue of some of the programs who became victims of the brainwashing but managed to hang onto a sliver of their original personalities. Those that can barely communicate with the little sanity they have left begged for deletion.
This virus hovers above ground on one panel. When it attacks, it shakes with shock and releases an electric ball which can stun the player if it hits. It only moves forward, and only does so after firing its attack. If met with the player's row, it will use Steal to remove the player's field to trap them. Interestingly, their attack also causes self damage, inflicting 5 HP of damage every time it attacks, implying that the program is slowly falling apart from its data fracturing.
Prog Mark 1
Prog Mark 1 are green in color, reminiscent of the original DataPrograms.
They have a dark colored face that evokes a sinister brainwashed appearance, orange belt and orange fin-like headpiece. Only the right fin remains intact- the left one has apparently been broken off or deleted after crippling the program, leaving it an incomplete being that is doomed to collapse. Their eyes have are blank, vacant stares and glow teal as rampant electrical energies spew out. The corrupted programs are unstable and emit static as they glitch up, causing them to slowly deteriorate before they finally perish.
Prog Mark 2
Prog Mark 3
