* Music/TheProtomen
** Act I: MegaMan discovers that Proto Man is still alive, but now fights for Wily as commander of his robot army. Proto Man calls out humanity for [[WeakWilled their inability to stand and fight for themselves]], prompting the masses to cry for Proto Man's death. Mega Man fatally wounds Proto Man, who declares with his dying breath that "[...]a hero is just a man who knows he's free." Mega Man, now as cynical as his brother, walks away as Wily orders the death of the people gathered before him.
** Act II: In this prequel, Light enlists the aid of a disenfranchised young man named Joe to destroy Wily's central tower as part of his plan to get revenge on the mad despot for the death of his girlfriend. Joe succeeds in destroying the tower, but dies in the attempt. His efforts are in vain, however, as Wily continues to broadcast his propaganda and places the city under martial law. Light gives in to despair before reading his girlfriend's letter to him, then sets himself to the grim task of building a soldier who could defeat Wily...

* Music/TheBeatles's "A Day in the Life" was the closing song on the album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". The song is usually interpreted as the story of a desensitized man reading through the news, passively reading stories about death. The song is one of the darkest songs on the album.
