* Wily is a greedy and envious man. He only wanted Emily because she was Light's woman, not because he had any real interest in her. The only thing that matters to Wily is power over other people. Taking Emily from Light, one way or another, was just another way of exerting power over Light - the man whom Wily had the most reason to want to force into submission.

* Wily was just winging it at that point - Emily had caught him red-handed, and he was forced to think very quickly of something to save himself. "Join me" was the first thing he came up with (followed my "murder"). Also, he didn't rise to power by exploiting the witch hunt; he did it by making himself the Saviour of the City, by using his robots to exponentially increase everyone's quality of living. The witch hunt was organized because Wily realized it would be a great tool to dispose of the one man able to oppose him.

**** So what? With great power comes great responsibility. Proto can sulk over how they don't go down fighting all you want, but that doesn't change the fact that they'd be butchered either way, and you could've stopped it. It's easy to tell the world to pull itself up by the bootstraps when you're a walking death machine. Especially when Proto's never known what humanity is going through. He's not had family or ties to worry about, and by the time he'd realize he was fighting a losing battle, he was already in the thick of it. Not to mention, he didn't exactly choose death over submission, himself, however he justifies it...

* Alternitavely his sanity was breaking through for a brief moment and Emily choosing to go with him would make him stop.
* Alternitavely Alternitavely the plan was always to murder Emily but Wily just wanted her to agree so he could later taunt Light by basically saying she would have chosen him when the chips were down.

\n* Oppression is a funny thing. It can be overt, in the form of the police state that the city becomes at the end of Act 2, or it can be subtle. Wily's city is subtly oppressive: robots do all the hard labor and save the people from dangerous work, but as a result, there's not enough jobs to keep the people employed, and they're completely dependent on the leadership of the city for their survival, in the form of food stamps and a social safety net and all that stuff. They rely on the leadership/government of Wily to survive, and if they say anything about how the meager things they are given might not be enough, they're killed by the Sniper Robot as dissidents. So no one speaks out. No one says anything bad. And the city crushes the will of the people by messing with their survival instincts: they have to support Wily to live, but in supporting Wily they only ensure they have no chance to be free.

** If you had two sons that were irrevocably locked in a battle to the death, and you loved both of them, could ''you'' watch one of them die by the other's hand?

In the lyrics, Wily tries to convince Emily to let him take her away - she refuses, obviously, but what would he have done had she gone along with it? He only rose to such extreme power by exploiting the witch hunt surrounding her murder, but what would he have done if she had never died?

* The Intermission has her reading the letter Light sent to her, mentioning that he would weep if something terrible happens to her. She went with the wost-case scenario.

!!What was Wily's plan if Emily came with him?

** It's debatable if that was his actual goal or not. It could easily have been Light ensuring Mega Man really ''wants'' to fight and a bit reverse psychology.
