After being rebuilt by Wily, Protoman [[SystemShock re-evaluated his priorities, and drew new conclusions]]. Realizing that Man would never truly be free until it claimed that freedom for itself, Protoman [[NecessarilyEvil purposely crossed the]] MoralEventHorizon over and over again, trying to goad Man into rising against the robots through his brutality. By the time Mega Man attacks Wily's fortress, Protoman has resorted to taunting and insulting the crowd in an attempt to make them stand for themselves; note that the only damage he causes during the final battle is ''to his own side''. Pity his plan didn't work.

The insert art for the single depicts three bright objects streaking towards the city. Both "Hold Back the Night" and "Crying Out" (the placeholder title for the second Act III song debuted at MAGfest) refer to the city being out of time and dying out, as if there's some impending doom headed for the city, as opposed to Act II's subtle oppression and stagnation and Act I's decay. They could possibly be some sort of missiles or meteors headed for the city, or perhaps Duo or Gamma might be involved.

[[WMG: Everything will end with the total extinction of humanity]]
Since the story probably won't end well for humanity, what worse ending is there than everyone just dying?

[[WMG: Wily will also build, or have already built Gamma by the time of Act 3]]
And just like "The Message From Dr.Light", "Gamma Unchained" will also take place in both the Protoverse and the Megasverse.

[[WMG: Kilroy Was Here and Joe's Garage take place during "How the world fell into darkness".]]
Or at least variants of the plots. In both Music/KilroyWasHere and Music/JoesGarage take place in a future where robots are everywhere, and music was outlawed. Maybe Wily outlawed music (for whatever reason), causing for the events from both other rock operas to take place. Light somehow heard about at the very least the story of Kilroy, and thus when creating Mega Man, named him "R.O.C.K." after Kilroy's full name. Then (going by the band's original story) some time after the events of act 3, when he builds The Protomen, he builds a robot similar to Wily's Mr.Robotos and calls it "K.I.L.R.O.Y."

[[WMG: MCR's "Danger Days" album takes place in the same universe as The Protomen]]
Going by what we know about the backstory of Danger Days, some event causes the world to go to hell, allowing for Better Living Industries to take over. So, what if the big event that caused the world to go to shit was either whatever happens in act 3, or happens as a direct result of it. This ties in to the previous WMG about Kilroy, as Dr.Wily could very well have done business at some point in time with BL/Ind, which would explain the Japanese Mr.Robotos. Furthermore, it chronologically fits. Act 1 takes place in the ambiguous 200X. This means act 2 takes place sometime between 1970 and 1999. Danger Days takes place in 2019. Plus, the Killjoys' rayguns are NES Zappers, which are commonly used as The Sniper Robot's gun that Joe steals (and occasionally as MegaMan's gun as well). So the technology ties them together as well.

[[WMG: Wily will have built the MM3 Robot Masters in time for Act III.]]
Protoman fought the original six from MM1. "Due Vendetta" suggests that Megaman fought both them and the MM2 bosses. It's a natural progression, and the MM3 bosses will be next.

[[WMG: The female lead isn't going to be Roll or the girl in the bar.]]
Rather, it'll be Kalinka, tying into the whole theory that Wily is going to force Dr. Cossack to build robots for him/upgrade his robots, Kalinka will be fighting against Wily from within, and "Hold Back the Night" isn't about Roll and Dr. Light, but Kalinka and Dr. Cossack.

[[WMG: The insert art for the Drove All Night single is foreshadowing to Act III]]
The insert art for the single depicts three bright objects streaking towards the city. Both "Hold Back the Night" and "Crying Out" (the placeholder title for the second Act III song debuted at MAGfest) refer to the city being out of time and dying out, as if there's some impending doom headed for the city, as opposed to Act II's subtle oppression and stagnation and Act I's decay.

[[WMG: The story arc presented in The Cover Up is about Joe's parents.]]
Since it has already been confirmed that The Cover Up, despite being a purely cover album, the band has confirmed that the album itself takes place within the Protomen canon, during the timeskip presented in ''How The World Fell Under Darkness'' in Act II, and the album itself ends on ''Silent Running'', which has been used as a segway into ''Breaking Out''. It's extremely likely that the people we hear during the course of the album are fighting Wily from the shadows themselves, which is all set in motion by the one phone call in the beginning of the album, with the unknown person on the other side, perhaps Dr. Light, sparking the fire to a small rebellion.

[[WMG: Built To Last is from the perspective of Protoman pre-Hope Rides Alone.]]
It seems fitting, pride before the fall and such. And also, "I am a real red liner".
