* BreakoutCharacter: Zero is ''the'' definitive example for the entire franchise. Other Proto Men are also likely to be popular within their own series' fanbases.

Given that there are plenty of {{expies}} scattered throughout the franchise, it is only reasonable that we keep track of them. No matter how much the developers have played with these archetypes, their core elements can still be recognized. These archetypes were reused in MightyNo9 as well.
