Rockman EXE 4.5 Real Operation (ロックマンエグゼ4.5 リアルオペレーション) is a spin-off game in the Rockman.EXE series that was released only in Japan for the Game Boy Advance. Despite its name, 4.5 is unrelated to the mainline games story-wise and has a different gameplay and style than other games in the series. Instead, players can control one of 21 different NetNavis from previous EXE games to compete in NetBattle tournaments. The game is thought to be a “test game” to try out various NetNavis to be playable in later EXE games. [Citation needed]

Gameplay

In Real Operation, the Game Boy Advance itself, in a sense, acts as a PET, allowing the player to control various NetNavis from previous games in the series. Players will engage in various tournaments, with a large variety of chips at their disposal that cause different effects on the enemy and battlefield. During tournaments, players can use Souls to assist them in battle.

Real Operation is compatible with the Battle Chip Gate, a Game Boy Advance accessory that allowed players to slot in real-life toy Battle Chips for use in the game, a feature that would be carried over to later games in the series. Users of Real Operation can also play multiplayer games against Rockman.EXE 4 users and other Real Operation users.

Playable NetNavis

Playable characters include Rockman, all of the "Soul Unison" NetNavis from the fourth game, several Navis who would go on to become playable characters in the fifth and sixth game, and other characters who make their sole playable appearance in the series. StarMan from Rockman.EXE Transmission is also playable.
