The plot begins when a duo of fighting alien robots crash-land into Dr. Wily's island base. Mega Man promptly arrives in time to save one of them, while Wily steals a strange source of energy from the wreckage of the other robot. After mowing down four of Wily's latest Robot Masters, Dr. Light finishes repairing the alien robot, named Duo, who soon after escapes, leading Mega Man in chase, only for him to nearly be killed by one of Wily's mecha, although Duo saves him in time. Duo reveals that Wily has been using "Evil Energy," a corrupting source of energy that he acquired from the robot Duo was fighting earlier, and that it must be destroyed lest it corrupt the earth in its entirety.

* AffablyEvil[=/=]NobleDemon: Sword Man. Right off the bat, he tells Mega Man that's there {{nothing personal}} between him and the Blue Bomber (he's simply following orders from Wily), that he's not going to hold anything back in battle, and that [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen he expects a fair fight]]. In battle, he even takes his time to ''[[CombatCompliment commend]]'' Mega Man. On top of this, he [[SwordPlant plants his blade into the ground]] and leans upon it as if it were a cane, and, if that weren't enough, the dub tries to reinforce this image by giving Sword Man [[IAmVeryBritish a polite, sophisticated]] UsefulNotes/{{British accent|s}}. And when you defeat him, his last line is [[GracefulLoser "Nice shot."]]
--> (''if Mega Man successfully dodges Fire Slash'') "Impressive."
--> (''upon defeat'') "Nice shot."

** That is however a case of poor translation. In the original Japanese CD Data, he hates chipped blades. While his blade lacks sharpness, it is certainly pristine.

* LovableCoward: While he was modified for combat, the easily-flustered Astro Man is still not the most reliable of units. He spends his battle suffering from an anxiety attack, whining as you whittle away his health, and, finally, exasperatedly proclaims "Good grief!" upon his demise.
* MadBomber: Grenade Man, full stop. He [[PutTheLaughterInSlaughter cackles like a loon]] throughout the fight, he blows up the floor at one point, and he actually seems to ''[[CombatSadomasochist enjoy]]'' being hit by his own bombs! Never mind him belting out "THAT FELT GOOD!" as he explodes.
