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 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.

** 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. ** His second 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 third 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 fourth attempt is in VideoGame/MegaMan6, where he disguises himself as Mr. X and [[TheManBehindTheMan claims to have been Wily's mentor the whole time.]]

** 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.

* 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.]]

* OutOfFocus: There is exactly one game in the 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.

* HijackedByGanon: Wily being the ultimate bad guy you have to defeat is toyed with in the earlier games, but he makes decreasing efforts towards secrecy and eventually dispenses of all pretense.

** Besides looking like Einstein, Dr. Wily's design could've also easily taken cues from Dr. Kabuto from ''Anime/MazingerZ''.

* FireIceLightning: A few games feature three Robot Masters with this combination, but ''1''/''Dr. Wily's Revenge'''s Elec Man, Fire Man and Ice Man are notable for being weak to each other (Elec -> Ice -> Fire). This repeats with ''Mega Man And Bass'''s Dynamo Man, Cold Man and Burner Man.
