* {{Badass}}: As usual, saving the world from evil megalomaniac scientists is just another day on the Net.
** BadassAdorable: For all his badassery, he's ultimately a kind-hearted, responsible, well-meaning, and even {{Adorkable}} equivalent of a ten-year old boy much like his classic counterpart.

* ChestInsignia: The creators say that it's not a stylized H, but rather an abstract symbol whose equal portions are meant to represent Mega Man's relationship to Lan [[spoiler:as his brother]]. That said, it actually evolved from an earlier design that ''was'' an H.
** It seems this design is also the Hikari family crest (Dr. Hikari has the same symbol on his uniform shirt) and may have some significance to [=SciLab=] (a close variation is painted on the ground in front of the government building in the first game).

** {{Subverted}} with the Cross System, since the Link Navis are actually connected to ''Lan'' (and the principle involved here is Lan's own Operating skill), who links their power with Mega Man's. However, it still runs on the level of understanding between Lan, his Link Navis, and Mega Man, so it still counts.

** English: [[spoiler:Hub is a networking term for a device that allows communication between multiple computers and networks.]]



* {{Synchronization}}: In terms of game mechanics, Mega Man can achieve Full Synchro with Lan when he successfully counterattacks an enemy, causing the attack power of his next offensive battlechip to be doubled. In plot terms, this often grants him CutScenePowerToTheMax.
** Taken to the next level in the anime with Cross Fusion, which allows him to merge with Lan in order to fight enemies in the real world.

* CherryBlossomGirl

to:

* CherryBlossomGirlCherryBlossomGirl: Her homepages all have this motif, and her hair piece vaguely resembles one. Not to mention her last name "Sakurai" which resembles the Japanese word for cherry blossoms.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Lan. [[spoiler: After trying to grab Lan's usually oblivious attention throughout most of the series, it's revealed at the end of the sixth game that both married each other in the future.]]



* HeroesWantRedHeads

to:

* HeroesWantRedHeadsHeroesWantRedHeads: Played with. It's not really clear what Lan's level of interest in her is. He obviously likes her a lot, but is never clear on any romantic feelings towards her.



* {{Tsundere}}: DoubleSubverted. [[WordOfGod Design notes]] in the recently translated ''Official Complete Works'' claim that while Mayl was originally conceived as a Tsundere, ExecutiveMeddling resulted in her being much more gentle-hearted, but allowed for her to react to Lan. By the TvTropes definition, she went from being a Type A Tsundere to a Type B.
** On several occasions throughout he series, Mayl calls Lan a dummy, and in the sixth game (after Lan has moved away), she decides to let the ACDC Area BBS know how much she doesn't miss him.

* TheChick

to:

* TheChickTheChick: Fits into this role much more effectively than Mayl does, due to her more peaceful and feminine nature.



* DistressedDamsel: [[strike:Sometimes]] Often plays this role. Roll's been the damsel at least once in each main game, though it's harder to remember in [=BN4=] since she also TookALevelInBadass -- and then went right back to being distressed for ''all'' of 5, and was captured ''yet again'' in 6.
** Even in 4 she's still kidnapped by Shade Man and shortly before her tournament match against Mega Man, she's held hostage by a generic Navi.

6. Even in 4 she's still kidnapped by Shade Man and shortly before her tournament match against Mega Man, she's held hostage by a generic Navi.



** WhipItGood: When she's not attacking with her bow and arrows, she teleports in front of her enemy and smacks them around with her two antennae on her head.
*** When she was transformed by an evil chip, her weapon of choice became a thorny whip.

* BalloonBelly

to:

* BalloonBellyBalloonBelly: Very, very frequently. It's hardly a wonder he's on the heavy side when he over-eats so much.



* {{Gonk}}

to:

* {{Gonk}}{{Gonk}}: His design is rather...unusual: a head and body that look like a malformed bowling pin, a tuft of hair that looks like a shark fin (and completely bald otherwise), and a pair of uncomfortably thick lips.



* TheBigGuy

to:

* TheBigGuyTheBigGuy: Only in terms of pure physical size. In terms of raw power, Megaman has him beat several times over.



* GentleGiant

to:

* GentleGiantGentleGiant: He's pretty intimidating, but he's a teddy bear deep down.



* GirlishPigtails
* GradeSkipper

to:

* GirlishPigtails
GirlishPigtails: Considering she's only 8, it's to be expected.
* GradeSkipperGradeSkipper: She's about two years younger than Lan and his friends, but is in the same class with them. In the anime, she's even beyond fifth grade level.



%%* TheSmartGuy

to:

%%* TheSmartGuy* TheSmartGuy: He's not very good in a fight, but he has access to networks and information that none of the other main navis do.

to:

* ImprobableAge: In the anime, he's the Vice President of his dad's company, despite being Lan's age. In the games, he's a net official and by the end of the sixth game, he's already in college.



** {{Jerk With a Heart of Gold}}
* MeaningfulName: "Eugene" literally means "well-born". "Chaud" is the French word for "warm" or "hot", which doesn't seem to have much meaning directly for him; it may in fact be a play off of Dr. Froid, whose name means "cold" (both characters are introduced in the same chapter of the first game).
** [[AvertedTrope Not in the anime]]. Despite having the last name "Blaze", neither Proto Man, his navi, nor he himself are affiliated with fire.
** Chaud Blaze fits him better in the manga, however, with his increasingly poorly suppressed temper.

to:

** {{Jerk With a Heart of Gold}}
Gold}}: He's still pretty cold and aloof, but is much more open and friendly than he was at the start. He openly respects Lan and Megaman and treats Protoman with much more compassion than he did before.

* TheSpock
* TheStoic

to:

* TheSpock
TheSpock: He treats everything with a cool rationality, especially in his debut.
* TheStoicTheStoic: He rarely shows any emotion beyond being slightly annoyed at Lan. This becomes more and more downplayed as his character develops, but he never loses his unflappable nature.



* TheLancer

to:

* TheLancerTheLancer: Despite not being an official part of Lan's group, he fulfills this role to the main cast of Navis. He is Megaman's foil and main rival, the two have directly contrasting personalities, worldviews, and color schemes, and Protoman generally prefers to work alone, but will grudgingly play second fiddle to Megaman if the situation calls for it.

to:

* NotThatKindOfDoctorNotThatKindOfDoctor: In the grand tradition of the Megaman series, Hikari's doctorate means he specializes in the technology central to the plot. In this case, it's computer science rather than robotics.



* NerdGlasses
* {{Otaku}}
* ProudToBeAGeek

to:

* NerdGlasses
NerdGlasses: A pair of square, rimless specs that, while not fitting any of the classic definitions, are very unflattering.
* {{Otaku}}
{{Otaku}}: For battle chips, which drives him to travel the world and even join the WWW in the first game.
* ProudToBeAGeekProudToBeAGeek: Considering that geekiness is actually the source of extremely helpful knowledge about net combat, it's not hard to see why.



* VerbalTic: He adds "huh" to almost every sentence in English. In Japanese, he replaces "desu" with "demasu". He even writes the "huh"s in his emails!

* InsistentTerminology: He insists on being called "Meijin" and not "Meijin-[[UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics san]]", and always says "san wa iranai" (roughly "no need for the -san") whenever he gets called "Meijin-san". Once, he underscores this by pointing out he isn't even over thirty, yet.
** The dub changes this to an aversion to being called "Mr.", which is a fairly direct translation.

The next time the player sees them, they are strong enough to crush Undernet Ranks 4 to 6 all at once.

Added DiffLines:

* PowerFloats: He notably floats all the time, without the help of his wings. This is actually important when Megaman has to chase him to save Roll, has there's a giant gap in the way that Shademan just floats over.
