Capcom has, to date, published ten main games in this series: six for the UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem, re-releasing the first three as a 16-Bit compilation for the [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Sega Mega Drive/Genesis]]), one for the UsefulNotes/{{Super Nintendo|EntertainmentSystem}}, one for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn and Sony UsefulNotes/PlayStation, and two as downloadable games for the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation3, and Microsoft's UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}. Capcom designed ''9'' and ''10'' as throwbacks to the NES titles; their graphics and audio simulating the system's 8-bit hardware, while the gameplay emulated the gameplay of the original NES games. The company also published a series of ''Mega Man'' games for the UsefulNotes/GameBoy, based mainly on the NES games, and another two games for arcades; adding the various {{Gaiden Game}}s elevates the "Classic" series into the largest continuity of the entire franchise.

* ''Mega Man Universe'' (XboxLiveArcade, {{PlayStation Network}}; Cancelled): Based heavily on the second game, this TwoAndAHalfD action-platformer would have allowed players to [[LevelEditor build their own stages]] and [[CharacterCustomization customize their individual characters]]. Additionally, this would have been the first title in the series to go by the name ''Mega Man'' in Japan (as opposed to ''Rockman'').

* CollisionDamage: A series staple. The many different kinds of enemies (and bosses) dish out more damage than others. Some will poke off just a little bit of health, while others can take ''over a third'' of your life bar (Usually larger enemies and bosses).

** His first attempt is in VideoGame/MegaMan4. Before the reveal, the player assumes Dr. Cossack is the villain (Wily was seemingly killed off in VideoGame/MegaMan3, and it only vaguely hints that he survived), although it turns out he was being blackmailed by Wily into fighting Mega Man in his steed.
** His second attempt is in VideoGame/MegaMan5, where it turns out he framed Protoman for the chaos going on, using a robot named Dark Man to impersonate him.
** His third attempt is in VideoGame/MegaMan6, where he disguises himself as Mr. X and [[TheManBehindTheMan claims to have been Wily's mentor the whole time.]]

** His first attempt is in VideoGame/MegaMan3, but you would only know this if you read the manual; after his defeat in VideoGame/MegaMan2, Wily had seemingly reformed and was helping Dr. Light build the peacekeeping robot Gamma. The games conflict, a batch of new robots going on the attack, turns out to be a RedHerring to buy Wily time to steal Gamma from Light to further his own plans.

** He also turns out to be the one behind the Star Droids invasion in VideoGame/MegaManV, but in an unusual change of pace for the series, he's ''not'' the final boss this time.
** Keeping with this series tradition, Wily also hijacks the plot in VideoGame/MegaMan9 and VideoGame/MegaMan10.

time, as the games real final boss, Sunstar, turns on him.
** ''VideoGame/SuperAdventureRockman'' inverts the tradition by having the games real villain, Ra Moon, turn on Wily.
** Keeping with this series tradition, Wily also hijacks the plot plots in VideoGame/MegaMan9 and VideoGame/MegaMan10.VideoGame/MegaMan10, after attempting to pose as a good guy again.

* DemotedToExtra: There is exactly ''one'' game in the classic Mega Man series where Dr. Wily is not fought ''and'' isn't even the villain of the game; the obscure Wonderswan game ''Rockman and Forte: Challenger From The Future''. The villain is Rockman Shadow, who may have been ''built'' by Wily, but he's completely acting of his own accord and ''wants'' Mega Man and Bass to destroy him. Wily doesn't appear at all in-game, and is only mentioned in passing [[AllThereInTheManual in the manual.]]
