This Virus Factory!, known as Crush the Virus Factory! (ウイルス工場をぶっ潰せ! Uirusu kōjō o buttsubuse!) in Japan, is the 33rd episode of the MegaMan NT Warrior anime series. In the English dub, it is the 26th episode. It features the debut of ShadowMan and CutMan, and the deletion of TorchMan off screen. It also features the first appearance of Elec Team Style, and is the first episode to show the Second Area intro in Japan, despite the Second Area starting with episode 27.


Legions of highly destructive viruses have infiltrated NetCity and blocked its main link from the human world. Worst of these are the terrible Cloudy Viruses, which have unleashed a destructive rain on the city that threatens to wash away all its data, jeopardizing everything in the world that depends on it. Taking refuge beneath the streets after narrowly escaping the virus pack, MegaMan, Roll, and Glide encounter TorchMan, who has been badly wounded by the powerful and evil FreezeMan. From TorchMan they learn of a factory where these viruses are produced. MegaMan, Roll, and Glide set out to find the virus factory and destroy it while TorchMan remains behind to meet his fate.[1]

  • When ShadowMan debuts, his gloves are an ash gray color instead of black.


This episode featured heavy censorship, particularly during MegaMan's fight with ShadowMan.
