Is Gate by any chance related to GateMan.EXE? Overall it seems like no, but any input will be appriciated.

Not likely? Like KingMan and King, GateMan was the winner of a fan contest while Gate is a original character from Capcom's staff, and besides the name, they don't share many similarities. GateMan has a gate in his chest that releases all kind of stuff, while Gate is a scientist with no relation to gates. King is a royal king with an axe, and KingMan a chess king that stomps. RingMan and Ring actually share similarities, as both are ring-themed and their main attack is named Ring Boomerang. But appearance-wise BeastMan.EXE looks more like the original Slash Man than SlashMan.EXE, and other similarities like PlanetMan/Astro Man and WackoMan/CircusMan/Clown Man. --22.214.171.124 17:34, December 27, 2011 (UTC)
Why I like Gate in this game
I liked Gate as a villain in Mega Man X6, and I thought he was the second best in the series, after Sigma. He turned evil because of the Zero Virus and he tried to get revenge on the the research team.
I liked his laboratory levels and their theme (the second X-Hunter castle theme remixed), even though I hated the Nightmare Mother and those spiked walls in the first part. I have to wonder some things. Were the statues prophetic or a coincidence? What was up with the color changes and music change in the third lab stage, where the boss rush and Sigma fights were? In the first two levels, we had blue and gold walls but the third level swapped them out for red and silver. I know Sigma's new form is zombie-like, but still...
For those wondering what I mean, I looked at the maps here: http://www.vgmaps.com/Atlas/PSX/index.htm#MegaManX6

I have curious that why Capcom prefered to create and portray several their chief villains including Gate as social darwinist and dark messiah who desire to take over the world and besides Wesker(Biohazard/Resident Evil),Sigma (MMX),Bison (Street Fighter) and Vergil (Devil May Cry).
