The two Mega Men, Roll.EXE, Harp Note and ClockMan.

The game has the same story of the original, the only difference being the addition of two events related to the Mega Man Star Force series:

In the prologue, Harp Note is kidnapped by ClockMan.EXE (a NetNavi able to travel through time by creating warp holes), who escapes to the Mega Man Battle Network era 200 years in the past. Dr. Goodall prepares a warp hole to allow the Star Force Mega Man to follow them, and warns him that he can only return to his time if he finds ClockMan.

After the battle against ElecMan.EXE, ClockMan captures Roll.EXE, and MegaMan.EXE searches for her in the Internet after hearing that a strange blue Navi was around the area at the time. When he sees the Star Force Mega Man, MegaMan.EXE believes he is the one who captured Roll and fights against him, but later realize that he is innocent and the two join forces to fight against ClockMan. After defeating ClockMan, Mega Man (SF) and Harp Note return to their time, and Mega Man (SF) gives MegaMan.EXE a program that allows the player to use him and his Battle Chip.

An additional scene was added during the credits showing the Star Force Mega Man and Harp Note successfully return to their timeline where they are greeted by their friends although Luna was not too fond to see the two of them together.





  • Using the Star Force Mega Man in battle resemble the combat used in the Mega Man Star Force series, with Mega Man able to use Mega Attack, Auto Charge Buster, and Shield.
  • After the Star Force Mega Man's scenario, the player is able to talk to him using the lower screen, although it resembles the HumrWord Navi Customizer program. One of the things Geo says to Lan is that the people from the past have extremely shiny foreheads, showing Yai as an example, and playing the same twinkle sound effect from MegaMan NT Warrior anime.
  • This game is the only home appearance of Star Force Mega Man that was never released outside of Japan.
