The Ultimate Program (究極プログラム Kyūkyoku Puroguramu) is a very rare program from the MegaMan NT Warrior anime series that is found in only a select few NetNavis. A NetNavi that possesses this program has the potential to become the "Ultimate NetNavi" because the program allows a NetNavi to evolve and adapt to any situation on their own, without the need of a human to give them upgrades or modifications, resulting in very great power and unlimited potential. The program is supposed to be incorruptible, but if it does become corrupted, then it will absorb large quantities of bugs in order to repair itself.
This also known as the Super Program (きゅうきょくのプログラム Kyūkyoku no Puroguramu) in Mega Man Battle Network. However in the video game, the programs are just sources of energy that Wily sought for to create the Life Virus.
Known possessors of the Program
Each Navi that had the Ultimate Program had a unique ability displayed multiple times in the anime that allowed them to either win battles, become stronger, or have special unique attributes.
The Ultimate Program enabled MegaMan to make use of the Style Change in the beginning, obtaining Heat Guts, Wood Shield, Elec Team, and Aqua Custom Style. When the bug that was inside Bass entered MegaMan, his Ultimate Program invoked a Style Change in an attempt to repair itself, the Bug Style. His Program was powerful enough to overpower the Grave Virus Beast and ProtoMan's Ultimate Programs, absorbing the entire NetCity, before restoring everything after Lan got through to MegaMan.
In MegaMan NT Warrior Axess, MegaMan had lost his ability to Style Change due to having performed a Cross Fusion with Lan, but in so, MegaMan obtained a new power, called the Double Soul, instead. With it, MegaMan was able to perform a much higher level version of ElecTeam Style, where MegaMan could take another Navi's strengths and abilities into his own, and even transform into a form similar to the original Navi. It was shown that Double Soul was even possible during Cross Fusion, but the act consumed incredible amounts of energy from Lan, that rendered him completely incapcitated. It is highly possible that MegaMan's Ultimate Program seemed to take in the energies of the other Navis while Lan was incapacitated and then enable a Full Synchro, allowing him to easily defeat a giant C.F. LaserMan.
Later on in Stream, Forte attempted to absorb Rockman's Ultimate Program to become a super powerful being that could face Duo, but was thwarted with Blues' intervention. When Forte had succeeded in absorbing Rockman's Ultimate Program, he couldn't control it, with resulted in Rockman activating the Soul Unison instead and becoming Forte Cross Rockman, the resulting power being phenomenal that Forte Cross Rockman managed to easily defeat Nebula Gray, though the amount of power was too great for their body to handle, and thus they ended up becoming exhausted into collapsing, and later defusing.
It is likely that Rockman's ability to merge with Trill to enter a Glaga and Falzer Beast Out in Rockman.EXE Beast was also a result of the Ultimate Program. This was taken even further when in Cross Fusion with Netto when heading to face the Super Cyber Beast controlled by Dr. Wily, where Netto had managed to combine both Glaga and Falzer forms into the his Cross Fusion state.
Later on Beast+, Rockman could access the Beast Forms at will from turning the power of Glaga and Falzer in him into Battle Chips. He also obtained the ability to Cross other Navis as well and even merge it with his Beast Forms.
When Bass was born from PharaohMan's remaining data, he lacked the Ultimate Program, as it was used to create the Grave Virus Beast. For that, Bass had an instinct to absorb data and bugs into himself, and eventually learned of his origins which led him to attempt to merge with the Grave Virus Beast, but he had been absorbed instead. After MegaMan had successfully restored the Net and deleted the Grave Virus Beast, Bass had obtained his Ultimate Program again, becoming whole once more, though it is speculated that Bass hadn't regained all the powers he had as PharaohMan.
Bass' Ultimate Program seems to be similar to his game version's Get Ability Program, as Bass attempted to absorb MegaMan and ProtoMan, though he failed to absorb either. He had absorbed MegaMan when MegaMan offered it to Bass to stop Nebula Grey, though Bass couldn't handle MegaMan's Ultimate Program and nearly self-destructed, forcing MegaMan to use Double Soul instead, forming Bass Cross MegaMan. However, the combination of the two's Ultimate Programs was immeasurably powerful, easily defeating Nebula without so much as a scratch on Bass Cross MegaMan. After separating and being absorbed into an abyss, Bass managed to absorb the remaining power of Nebula Gray to become much more powerful that he could face Slur, who had easily defeated Bass before. The result allowed Bass to easily defeat Slur, deleting the extraterrestrial Navi in the end.
Not much has been shown of ProtoMan's Ultimate Program, if there had been any special qualities, but ProtoMan has shown a very powerful range of skills, and was able to defeat multiple foes at once, along with being able to handle himself in many situations, which allowed him to fight MegaMan on even ground multiple times, and even overpower him.
Iris' Ultimate Program wasn't used for battle, but it is likely that her Ultimate Program is what allowed her to enter the human world and the Net at will, as well as taming MegaMan's Beast Out states, and even helping a proper merge with Trill to enable MegaMan to control his Beast Out.
It was created from PharaohMan's Ultimate Program, and it allowed the beast to grow stronger with every Navi and data that it could absorb. It allowed the beast to easily take on the most powerful of attacks and break through powerful firewalls that was used to contain it. It was only Bass and MegaMan's Bug Style that could stand up to the beast, though Bass ended up being absorbed himself when he attempted to absorb the Grave Virus Beast. When it attempted to absorb MegaMan, it was ultimately absorbed and deleted, though Bass had reclaimed his Ultimate Program by then.
Though his Ultimate Program was used in the Grave Virus Beast and Bass, PharaohMan didn't display any unique abilities for battle, but instead was a very powerful Navi that could easily take over the Net by controlling the flow of data. Even an army of StoneMan and BlasterMan couldn't defeat him, much less hurt him, and he easily destroyed the army. Despite how the power in SciLabs was shut down, PharaohMan successfully rebooted the entire system, despite how it shouldn't have been possible. It was only when MegaMan and ProtoMan had used a Double Program Advance on him that PharaohMan was wounded, which led to his capture, and eventually him self-destructing to prevent himself from being used by a human.
