!'''Robots-Major Characters'''

!!Mega Man/Rock
->''"I am Mega Man! I fight for [[CatchPhrase everlasting peace!"]]''
TheHero of the story and Dr. Light's #1 robot. Initially created by Doctor Light to function as his lab assistant, but then [[TakeOverTheWorld Doctor Wily]] happened and he was forced to take up arms. A complete dork when not in battle, and a bit of an IdiotHero. His body was remade with parts meant for war and he can switch to his old body at will. He is bold and reckless.
----

* ArmCannon
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: The comic stays to true to the game. As long as the memory chip is intact, then the robots can be rebuilt.]]
* BadassAdorable: Mega Man has the appearance and mentality of a 10 year-old child.
* CompellingVoice[=/=]HypnoticEyes: He can control other Light robots via override, though he uses his voice and/or eyes that works in conjunction with radio waves (wifi). It's never really explained which.
* {{Determinator}}: The later parts of the second episode seriously show this off, as both of his bodies are consistently under threat of total destruction. He's lost an arm, [[spoiler: been killed,]] is suckered by Quint into having one of his bodies explode, and still returns to battle Wily. [[BadAss By punching his ship with a Shoryuken!]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Quintet''':]] Don't you know when to give up?
-->'''Mega Man''': Don't ask me questions with answers that don't exist.
* FutureMeScaresMe: In an alternate timeline Rock "grows up" into a soccer-loving, somewhat responsible [[BattleButler house robot...]] [[spoiler: who later becomes the WellIntentionedExtremist Quintet.]]
* HeroicComedicSociopath: He shows some shades of it. He is altogether moral, but he has no problem killing his brothers if they go evil. [[spoiler: When Roll goes a minor hypno-bug, she [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out for not really caring about Fire Man being permanently destroyed by him no less.]]]]
* HypnoRay: Again. Probably used in conjunction with a HypnoTicket embedded in the other robots.
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: "I am Mega Man! I fight for everlasting peace!"
* IndyPloy: Mega Man's standard operating procedure.
* {{Irony}}: He accuses Quintet of always using someone or something else to fight. [[PowerCopying Umm...]]
* LawfulGood: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* PowerCopying: He was the former [[MegaManning trope namer.]]
* OneManArmy: In the first arc. Things get MUCH tougher the second go around, but he still amounts to this.
* ShoutOut: Occasionally refers to himself as a [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan "super fighting robot."]]
-->'''Mega Man''': I'm a super fighting robot, I'm here to super fight!
* ShutUpHannibal: Quick Man's NotSoDifferent speech is interrupted simply and awesomely with "Shut up, stupid!" and explosions.

!!Reset Man
->[[CosmicPlaything "My life sucks."]]
The first of the humanoid robots. He is an old test model made for trial runs that has become frightened of many things as a result of his terrible life. [[RetCon He is sometimes referred to as Polka.]]
----

* ButtMonkey: Ever since his activation, he fell to the roof of Light Labs, was left barely operable with a badly damaged, poorly-repaired body, and nearly destroyed by many things.
** Wily takes him over briefly. Mega Man seems to have no problem [[http://ferretcomic.com/594 f'ing his shiz up.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Both Reset Man and his separate AI do this.
* GilliganCut: [[http://ferretcomic.com/936 Just when things start looking up for him.]]
* GrapplingHookPistol: His retractable arms.
* LawfulNeutral: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* LovableCoward: When you have no weapons, you have no choice to run. He needs others to fight for him.
* PetTheDog: Reset Man finally gets an upgraded body [[http://ferretcomic.com/770 here.]]
* ProperlyParanoid: When the comic creator likes seeing you in pain and everyone is trying to kill you, you know to fear EVERYTHING.
* SplitPersonality: 'Reset Mode'. [[spoiler: Apparently named [[TheExorcist "Pazuzuli."]]]] He also has [[spoiler: Quick Man inside him now as well.]]

!!Roll
->''"Rock... please don't do anything stupid."''
->'''SIBLING ASSESSMENT'''
->''"... well... Don't DIE, anyway..."''
Mega Man's twin unit "sister". Created by Doctor Light for more domestic purposes than Rock. In contrast to Rock's inquisitive and occasionally [[HotBlooded fiery]] nature, Roll is more gently inclined and dislikes the idea of fighting. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Not counting that one time she decapitated Ice Man.]] [=DisguntledFerret=] describes him as a sweet little girl and iron-fisted housekeeper.
----

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Arguably. There have been moments of plot importance where Roll has gone berserk. Subverted in that her only weapon is a ''vaccum cleaner''.
* CloserToEarth
* DeadpanSnarker
* LawfulGood: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* RobotGirl
* ShoutOut: Perhaps to her cartoon self, whose weapon was, among other household appliances, a vacuum cleaner.
* [[SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaid Super Powered Robot House Maid:]] This is essentially Roll's job description.
* TechnicalPacifist: Unlike Rock, Roll doesn't approve of combat. While she's far from meek- and quite cantakerous at times- she just doesn't like the prospect of fighting. This actually helps sidestep the unfortunate implication present in most other depictions of the character (i.e.: she cannot fight because of her status as a female).
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Her Robot Master ability is apparently a rather harmless vacuum.

!!Enker
->"Being [[NighInvulnerability invulnerable]] makes for such fun."
Enker, the "Mega Man Hunter", was Wily's [[TheDragon dragon]] for the first major arc (basically, Mega Man 1). Following [[spoiler: his initial [[StuffBlowingUp defeat]] by Mega Man, he was revived for Wily's second attack,]] [[VillainDecay only to be shunted under Quintet's command.]]
----

* AchillesHeel: [[spoiler: His Mirror Buster.]]
* ArmorIsUseless: Thoroughly subverted. Getting hit by attacks is key to his fighting style.
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead]]
* FailureKnight: Enker is remarkably devoted to Doctor Wily, despite the contempt he tends to receive.
* ForeverWar: A particularly heartbreaking, one-robot instance. In the BadFuture arc "Too Serious",[[spoiler: both Doctor Light and Wily are dead, and constant robot warfare has torn the world apart.]]
-->'''Enker''' (to Mega Man): [[http://ferretcomic.com/316 You... I... You... My enemy! You... Tell me, who is my enemy! Dr. Wily... Please, tell me who my enemy is! Where is my enemy!? Where... Please, someone... tell me who my enemy is... please... someone... please..."]]
* LawfulNeutral: Surprisingly stated by [[WordOfGod [=DisguntledFerret=]]] [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* MythologyGag: Fans have mused for the longest time on why Dr. Wily doesn't just make a Robot Master out of the same material as Metools (enemies who can reflect all attacks). Ferret answers that through Enker, whose armour ''is'' made from Metool-type metal and it works quite well... [[GoingCritical right up until it doesn't.]] [[FridgeBrilliance There's a proper explanation for it, too.]]
* NighInvulnerability
* TheRival: Enker is Mega Man's first true robot-based rival in the series.

!!Quintet/[[spoiler: Rock/Mega Man V]]
->"I've got myself a plan. I'm going to break the endless cycle of war once and for all. Under my rule, no one's going to have to be miserable or suffer anymore."
Wily's [[TheDragon second-in-command]] in the second episode, ''No Future'', replacing [[FailureKnight Enker.]] [[spoiler: He is in fact a time-displaced copy of Rock, designated Mega Man V, from an alternate future timeline that was introduced in the filler arc "Greatest Killer",]] and has his origins in the second Rockman World on the Gameboy. His is suspiciously familiar.
----

* AffablyEvil: Shown most in his interactions with Mega Man, Wily, and Enker.
* AsskickingPose: Done when mode changing into [[spoiler: Mega Man V.]]
* [[spoiler: BadFuture: Quintet comes from one of these. The details are unknown, but it's implied ''everyone'' is dead except for him.]]
* BerserkButton: [[spoiler: ''DON'T EVER TALK ABOUT DOCTOR LIGHT!'']]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: He doesn't really like Wily.
* [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn]]
* FailureKnight
--> "Yeah... I'm only strong when I borrow the power of others. I'm just another failure. [[note]][[CrazyAwesome A failure riding an]] '''''atomic fire breathing dragon!!'''''"[[/note]]
* [[spoiler: FallenHero]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: he uses Sakugarne, a modified pogo-stick... that is, a jackhammer.
-->'''Quintet''': "Beware my power, Rock! I am '''Quintet'''! And this is my nuclear powered pogo stick!"
-->'''Mega Man''': "Your [[FlatWhat what?"]]
* LargeHam: Granted, an ''evil'' one, but he has his moments.
* LaserBlade: [[spoiler: Acquired by PowerCopying Allegro in Greatest Killer.]]
* LateArrivalSpoiler: For anyone who played the games he was in or got his info CD in MegmanAndBass knows he is [[spoiler: an altered Mega Man from the future.]]
* LawfulEvil: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* MeaningfulName: Possibly. It's been noted on the forums that V is half of [[VideoGame/MegaManX X.]]
** Also, a quintet is a group of five. Guess which number V is the roman numeral for.
* SinisterShades: His first appearances have him completely in silhouette... except for his gleaming visor.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: During the latter half of "Water Hazard", he [[spoiler: floods an entire building just to kill Mega Man.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Quint from the games? An absolute joke. Quintet from the comic? Hyper competent, super powerful, and the biggest threat in the series.
* TwinTelepathy: He has this with [[spoiler: Future!Roll.]] It also seems that all robots built with a twin unit (like Rock and Roll) have a version of this.
* VillainousBreakdown: Briefly loses his cool when Mega Man says that Dr. Light wouldn't approve of what he (Quintet) is doing.
-->'''Quintet''': "WHAT WOULD YOU KNOW?! You're just a stupid little robot that's barely a year old! If you saw what I saw, and you knew what I know, then you'd do what I'm doing!"
* WeCanRuleTogether: A slight variation.
-->"The ultimate goal I have is peace. [[IronicEcho Everlasting peace.]] Let's work together."
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Quintet's attempts to bring [[IronicEcho "everlasting peace"]] involve bloodshed. Lots of it.
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds:]] Between flashbacks and the aforementioned Berserk Button, it's heavily implied that [[spoiler: in his timeline, Doctor Light died of an unnamed illness, robbing Quintet of his moral compass.]]

!!Quick Man
->[[BadassBoast "... You're not just some weakling after all. That's good! When I start running, it's a Grand Prix. And when I start fighting, it's a battle royale!]]"
Supposedly the strongest of Wily's 8 Robot Masters in the second episode. As his name would imply, he's the [[SuperSpeed quickest.]] He's also ''huge''.
----

* BadAss: See wake-up call boss.
* BloodKnight: [[NotSoDifferent "You're like me,]] living for a strong enemy to match. But in this era, how many will you find?"
* KickTheDog: A couple, but his [[http://ferretcomic.com/456 introductory scene]] in particular stands out. Squishy humans do ''not'' do well against Quick Man.
* LightningBruiser
* InertiaIsACruelMistress
* WakeUpCallBoss: What happens when Enker, Flash Man, Wood Man, Metal Man, Crash Man, and Quick Man take on Mega Man (besides the fact they do a lot of friendly fire)? [[spoiler: Flash Man retreats, Crash Man gets decapitated, Wood Man gets frozen, [[ButtMonkey Metal Man gets taken out by friendly fire, Cut Man gets curb-stomped by Wood Man]], Enker is destroyed, and [[BadAss Quick Man curb-stomps the military and puts Mega Man on the ropes single-handily.]]]]
* WorthyOpponent: To the point that he lays off destroying Mega Man completely the first time they meet, considering him insignificant. Later, he stands by and watches Enker fight Mega Man, on the grounds that he would fight him if Enker was defeated.

!!Electric Man
->[[BadassBoast "Can you put lightning in a jar? Can you put a thunderstorm under lock and key?"]]
One of the original Robot Masters, Electric Man is considered one of the strongest of the first eight, though this comes with a [[AGodAmI superiority complex.]] He gets a HeelFaceTurn after his initial defeat by Mega Man.
----

* BigDamnHeroes: Twice in the first episode, against the [[spoiler: Yellow Devil,]] and then later saving Mega Man from [[spoiler: Copy Rock.]]
* EmbarrassingNickname: Not particularly embarrassing, but Electric Man doesn't like it when Mega Man calls him "Elecky".
* FaceHeelTurn: It wasn't his choice, thanks to Wily, but he then got a-
* HeelFaceTurn: Interesting in that Mega Man blew him up before this happened, and Doctor Light was able to repair him and remove Wily's HatePlague programming, making this a postmortem heel face turn.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice:]] Used to destroy the [[spoiler: Yellow Devil.]] [[BackFromTheDead It doesn't quite stick.]]
* PsychoElectro: For a good guy, he sometimes seems a little... unhinged.
-->'''Electric Man''': "Could you put lightning in a jar? Could you put a thunderstorm under lock and key, Writer?
-->'''Writer''': "Yes I could!"
-->'''Electric Man''': "Haha... [[YouGotSpunk spunky.]] If I could see your eyes I'd know if you mean that. ''My electrical current will run through your little body like a beautiful river of death''."
* OffhandBackhand: Electric Man beats Metal Man this way during their [[CurbstompBattle brief fight.]]
* OnlyAFleshWound: When Enker [[SaveThePrincess kidnaps Roll]] during "Lightning Strike", he pins Elec Man to a wall with his Mirror Buster. He then volunteers to handle the [[spoiler: Yellow Devil.]] The following exchange results.
--> '''Mega Man''': "W... wait, you? But you're already hurt, Elecky!"
--> '''Electric Man''': "Don't call me Elecky. And it's not as bad as it looks."
--> '''Mega Man''': "That's good... Because it looks incredibly bad to me."
* PrepareToDie: "HEY, SLIMEBALL! [[PreAsskickingOneLiner YOU'VE GOT THREE SECONDS TO LIVE! USE THEM WISELY!"]]
* ShockAndAwe: Emphasis on "awe".
* SmugSuper: Justified, as he's apparently the most powerful of the first 8 Robot Masters (besides Mega Man), and unlike [[spoiler: poor Cut Man,]] can actually hold his own against the second generation Robot Masters.
** It does, however, [[http://ferretcomic.com/819 come back to bite him.]] Hilariously.
* WouldHitAGirl: Electric Man has no problems with the notion of frying Writer, but is prevented from doing so first by his own [[SmugSuper overconfidence,]] and later by Enker coming in at the last minute, allowing Writer to use her powers on Electric Man (again).

!!Crash Man
->[[BadassBoast "I am the Destroyer. The ultimate soldier. No pain. No human frailty. No weak emotions. Just murder."]]
Crash Man is another of Wily's 8 Robot Masters in episode II. He likes blowing things up. Like a lot.
----

* ImplacableMan: Takes Mega Man's whole arsenal, is torn apart by a military robot, is repeatedly attacked by Cut Man, and just pieces himself together and keeps destroying stuff.
* MythologyGag: Being as he is from the future, he's made of a Titanium-V alloy. This references the Titanium-X alloy VideoGame/MegaManX is built of.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: "Crash Man" may not sound too intimidating, but he's called "The Destroyer" for a very good reason.
* OffWithHisHead: Not that it slows him down, mind you.
* OneManArmy: By the time of "Mega Man Hunter", Crash Man has destroyed over a hundred military bases, killing and wounding an unknown number of military personnel.
* TakingYouWithMe: Upon being defeated, he gives all of his energy into one final attack meant to destroy Aeropolis' engines and [[ColonyDrop bring it crashing to the ground.]]
* WhyWontYouDie: Said to him by Cut Man during "Live and Learn".

!!ATLAS
->"......"
Factor G's [[SuperPrototype pioneer super combat robot.]] Unlike the E1's, who are essentially mass production versions of the Mega Man chassis, ATLAS is unique, valuable, and [[SuperStrength extremely strong.]] However, he was apparently left unfinished, which is why he speaks [[HeWhoMustNotBeHeard in points of ellipsis.]] He is described as the strong, silent type as he doesn't try to communicate in any manner.
----

* ArchEnemy: To Crash Man, although [[spoiler: he loses in their second fight and Mega Man beats Crash Man instead.]]
* BadassLongcoat: As a rather transparent disguise.
* TheBigGuy
* CyberCyclops: Although unlike most of the examples on that page, he's a good guy.
* [[spoiler: DefiantToTheEnd: When Crash Man destroys an E1 series that tries to save his "chief," ATLAS glowers at Crash Man as he is blown apart. It looks like he will be rebuilt, however.]]
* ImplacableMan: ATLAS lacks the agility to dodge enemy attacks. He makes up for it by not needing to.
* LawfulNeutral: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* TheReveal: Spoofed in "Heavy Metal". Atlas is [[BadassLongcoat in disguise]] for the whole fight with Fire Man, until told to remove it by the Factor G-men.
-->Mega Man: "Omigosh! He's a '''robot'''!"
* TheSpeechless: He wasn't completed so his voicebox hasn't yet been installed.

!'''Robots-Minor Characters'''

!!Allegro
The antagonist of the Alternate Future arc "Greatest Killer". Allegro was created by a rival of Dr. Light for the sole purpose of destroying all that he had built. [[spoiler: His body was based off a wandering robot that may or may not have been Proto Man.]]
----

* AffablyEvil: To the max.
* AlternateContinuity: Not actually created by Ferret. He was originally a character from a different comic called ''The Primer Chronicles'' in which he was the BigBad. Ferret used him with the author, Esper's, permission.
* AxeCrazy
* BloodKnight
* CastFromHitPoints: He uses his 'Life Energy' to try and call his laser sword back to him during his fight with Rock.
* EvilIsPetty: Discussed and lampshaded [[http://ferretcomic.com/554 here.]]
* [[spoiler: ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice:]] In the face, no less.
* JetPack: His primary method of transportation, given that he does not teleport.
* [[spoiler: KarmicDeath:]] [[spoiler: The aforementioned impalement happened with his own sword.]]
* LaserBlade
* MythologyGag: Future!Rock using his [[PowerCopying copy ability]] on Allegro is used to explain Quint's green colourscheme. It's somewhat fitting that Allegro himself also superficially [[NotSoDifferent resembles Quint.]]

!!Metal Man
Metal Man is another of Wily's 8 Robot Masters in episode II. Based off of Cut Man's blueprints, he's the weakest out of the second generation. He's also [[JerkAss a douchebag.]]
----

* DirtyCoward: He will use hostages, giant robot walkers, and beg for his life to get what he wants.
* TheChewToy: And he thoroughly deserves it.
* ClusterFBomb: His standard mode of dialogue.
* [[spoiler: CloudCuckooLander: Thanks to his transformation to Blade Man.]]
* [[spoiler: TheDogBitesBack: He gets so sick of his treatment as disposable and useless that he blows himself up to damage Punk and Quintet.]]
* HotBlooded: After [[spoiler: becoming BLADE MAN!]]
* IneffectualDeathThreats: While he would like to carry them out, he most certainly can't.
* JerkAss: So much.
* LargeHam: If filler is anything to go by, he is a egomaniac and wants everyone to worship him while he flies around in a space car and gets laid with [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Felicia.]]
* [[spoiler: TookALevelInBadass:]] [[spoiler: Thanks to Quintet's support units, he is now [[LargeHam BLAAAAAADE MAAAAAAAN!]]]]

!!Reader & Writer
A pair of female robots, referred to collectively as "Harmony", who work for Quintet.
----

* BackStab: Sort of. While Mega Man is trying to get Bubble Man to come out and fight, Reader sneaks up behind him and shoves him into the water, [[spoiler: destroying his Mega Man body.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Both of them at different times.
* EnemyScan: This appears to be part of Reader's main job description.
* RealityWarper: Writer's 'Data Writer' attack appears to be something like this, except she has to make direct contact with the person she's trying to affect.
* RobeAndWizardHat: Writer is "dressed" in black, with what appears to be a pointy witch hat.
* RobotGirl
* SinisterShades: Both of them, a trait they share with Quintet.

!!Cut Man
The weakest of the first generation robots, despite his [[HeroicWannabe heroic spirit.]]
----

* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: He lampshades it... by claiming he's immortal (it's actually Dr. Light's doing).]]
* [[spoiler: BigDamnHero:]] He gets his chance when [[spoiler: Mega Man is controlled by Harmony units.]] It turns out the [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang Rolling Cutter]] is the one weapon [[spoiler: that one-shots the Harmony Units without destroying the host body.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: "ROLLING CUTTER!" "RAMMING CUTTER!"
* CurbstompBattle: Between him and Wood Man. [[spoiler: He loses.]] Cut Man's defeat to [[spoiler: Wood Man makes sense as he was (ironically) weak to his power in [[http://megaman.wikia.com/wiki/Cut_Man#Trivia Mega Man: The Power Battle.]]]]
* [[spoiler: DefiantToTheEnd:]] [[spoiler: When cornered by Wood Man, he's given one last chance to attack. He impales Wood Man on his scissors and declares that he is never, ever pointless before [[TakingYouWithMe throwing the both of them off into a pit of spikes.]]]]
* {{Determinator}}: Unlike many of the other robot masters, Cut Man was able to hold off Wily's reprogramming for a longer period of time then the stronger robots who fell pretty much in seconds. Unlike them, however, he went completely insane from the process (perhaps due to being the nicest besides Rock and Roll, having damaged himself by trying to resist for so long, or going insane was the only thing keeping him from going comatose).
* {{Flashback}}: Invoked and Lampshaded [[http://ferretcomic.com/1010 here.]]
--> Cut Man: N... NO! This flashback is too stupid!
* GoodIsDumb: A little, but he quickly shows that he understands that Robot Masters' free wills, personalities, and favorite activities were programmed into them. It's a not so subtle hint that he believes they are static characters and/or slaves (as he is being taken over by Wily, he hopes that it's just his personality developing even though that shouldn't ''technically'' be possible).
* HeroicWannabe: [[spoiler: It gets him killed. Again.]]
* UnbreakableWeapons: His scissors are unbreakable just like the games' WordOfGod has said.
* WhatTheHellHero: He gets this from Wood Man with regards to his previous actions under Wily's control.
-->'''Cut Man''': "Gh-n-newbie heroes have it rough..."
-->'''Wood Man''': "You've chopped down trees, and you've chopped down humans. You're no hero."

!!Fire Man
One of the original Robot Masters used by Doctor Wily in his first attack. After being killed by Mega Man and repaired by Doctor Light, he was stolen (again). It appears that [[spoiler: Quintet]] used him as a test subject for the Harmony Support units- which would later lead to his [[spoiler:[[KillItWithWater unfortunate death.]]]]
----

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: During Wily's initial attack, then later on when he is stolen and augmented with Quintet's wormlike Support Units.
* FaceHeelTurn: Thanks to Wily... TWICE!
* HeelFaceTurn: Not for long...
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal:]] [[spoiler: Falling into the ocean fried his data chip, meaning that while Doctor Light could build another robot with that body, it wouldn't be ''him''.]]
* LimitBreak: Ultimate Fire Storm. Interrupted when Mega Man tells him not to save his best attack for last and hits him with Ice Slasher, promptly cutting it off.
* PlayingWithFire

!!Air Man
->[[ShoutOut "Even if]] [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann heaven itself forgives your shenanigans, I, Air Man, will not!"]]
The Robot Master Doctor Wily tasked with attacking Monsteropolis from atop Aeropolis. With his output increased to ridiculous levels by the [[WeatherControlMachine Weather Amplifier,]] he inflicted great damage on the city, only to be interrupted by Electric Man, [[spoiler: then exploded by Mega Man.]]
----

* BadassBoast:
--> I'm no longer a plaything of destiny. I'll grasp the future! [[color:darkred: Without fail]] I will, for the GREAT Dr. WILY!"
* BerserkButton: [[http://ferretcomic.com/927 Being looked down upon; being called weak.]]
--> "''DON'T MOCK ME!'' [[color:darkred: '''DON'T YOU DARE!!'''"]]
* BlowYouAway
* CallingYourAttacks: "CYLINDRICAL AERO SPREAD BURST!"
* HotBlooded
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Intentionally invoked. [[http://ferretcomic.com/934 When he gets angry]], his vocabulary... [[IllKillYou slips.]]
--> '''Air Man''': I hate you. Die forever.

!!Ice Man
----

* FaceHeelTurn: Thanks to Wily.
* HeelFaceTurn: Thanks to Light.
* AnIcePerson: An Ice based robot named after ice. Doesn't get more self-explanatory.
* TheDitz

!!Heat Man
Crash Man's partner and one of the next-gen Robot Masters. It's unknown how powerful he is, because he spends most of his time sitting on his rear.
----

* BrilliantButLazy: [[http://ferretcomic.com/1027 There's a reason Heat Man's usually so incompetent.]] He might even be the strongest of the eight.
* [[spoiler: DieLaughing:]] [[spoiler: At the center of an ''atomic explosion''.]]
* LazyBum: He abandons his partner, Crash Man, in the first fight with ATLAS, but not out of fear, but because he can't be bothered to actually fight.
* PlayingWithFire: Powered by an [[spoiler: unstable nuclear bomb.]]
* PersonalityPowers: Averted. Heat Man may be the single least fiery cast member in the entire strip.
** Although, judging from strip [[http://www.ferretcomic.com/archives/Comic1003.png #1003,]] he may start to play this straight. There's a reason for this. As he gets more angry and excitable, the more he uses his powers [[spoiler: and the more unstable he becomes. His core is fission-based and as he increases the reaction rate of his core, he gets more powerful. The price is that when the rate of fission becomes uncontrolled, it will burst out his body and create a nuclear explosion instead of a leak (Wily really doesn't care about his robots surviving, as long as they take someone with them).]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: Quintet either thought that Heat Man wouldn't be a threat, or that he had been mind controlled with Flash Man and Wood Man. Either way, he was dangerously wrong.
** Turns out that he's powered by a [[spoiler: nuclear bomb,]] and using mind control would be rather risky.
* [[spoiler: WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity:]] [[spoiler: Once Heat Man actually gets off his duff, his power source goes critical pretty swiftly, resulting in a maniacal shift in personality right up until his death.]]

!!Spike Man
One of Wily's Robot Masters. He was initially incomplete, but was stolen along with Guts Man, Electric Man, and Fire Man when Dr. Wily made his second attempt at [[TakeOverTheWorld world conquest.]] Spike Man was also the first of the Robot Masters to be deployed during the second episode.
----

* SmugSuper: Much like Electric Man, only without the power to back it up.
* UnusualEuphemism: Spike Man uses the word "spike" a lot.
* SpikesOfVillainy: A variant, seeing as he fires said spikes rather than wearing them.

!!Flash Man
Created to be Enker's partner. Flash Man's Robot Master ability- the ability to stop time for a short while- would be very useful if he were only more creative with it.
----

* CripplingOverspecialization: Flash Man's signature attack only works once on Mega Man, and it's also apparently the only attack he knows.
* DirtyCoward: "I'm not fighting someone who can fight back! #%&@ this!"
* FlashStep
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Flash Man is a JerkAss, but watching him toss [[TheChewToy Metal Man]] into a [[SpikesOfDoom spike pit]] mitigates that.

!!Guts Man
One of the six Robot Masters who were originally stolen by Dr. Wily. He, along with Fire Man and Electric Man, is said to have [[PowerLevels power output levels]] higher than Rock's. He was stolen again, and brainwashed by Quintet, reappearing to attempt to keep Heat Man from wrecking Quintet's plans.
----

* DishingOutDirt: Although technically, he just throws giant boulders.
* FaceHeelTurn: Wily keeps getting a hold of him.
* GiantMook: the clone Guts Men.
** Plus, [[spoiler: the Harmonies have transformed him into Guts Dozer.]]
* PunchedAcrossTheRoom: Super Arm.
* SuperStrength
** Even more so as [[spoiler: Guts Dozer.]]

!!Punk
Dr. Wily's third commander robot. Not very friendly at all. Very angry and violent
----

* ChaoticNeutral: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]

!!Dr. Thomas Light
->"Fighting to protect what's good... that's a worthy cause! If that's what you choose, then I'll stand behind you one hundred percent. But, I want you to promise me something.

* ChekhovsGun: His [[StreetFighter Shoryuken.]]
* [[spoiler: HollywoodHeartAttack:]] [[spoiler: Averted. His heart attack is realistic if it was one in the first place. It's never really stated if it was one or just heart palpitations caused by the stress of the soldier threatening Roll's life if he doesn't help build war weapons.]]
* HotBlooded: Particularly when he gets out his HumongousMecha!
* ThisIsADrill: Drill-Grapple! [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill A whole lot of it!]]
* TheKidWithTheRemoteControl: What he was in his youth, if 'Daidigger D' is any indication.
* MacGyvering: This is why [[spoiler: Quintet fears him.]]
--> [[spoiler: Quintet:]] He'll build a death ray if you so much as let him have a [[color:red: cellphone]] and a [[color:blue: paperclip.]]
* NeutralGood: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: He gives [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome an absolutely amazing one]] to Dr. Wily. [[http://ferretcomic.com/983 It starts here.]]
-->'''Dr.Light''': ... Finally. I see you're already turning tail, Wily. [[color:red: You're a smart man...]] That's what I'd like to say. HOWEVER! You've sown the seed for your own end. The robots you sent to capture my factory not only provided a chance for Mega Man to hone his most basic combat skills, but also their technological secrets! You failed to remove the hidden failsafe I added in Electric Man six months ago... And you failed to understand the thought I put into one robot... With just a few parts from the technology of the future Sniper Joe, he became capable of overcoming your army! He was even able to replicate the ability of [[TimeStandsStill Flash Man]] for me. Having any trouble [[color:blue: ''seeing into the future'']] lately, Wily?
-->'''Dr.Wily''': "- Wait, you...!? YOU SON OF A WHORE I'LL"
-->'''Dr.Light''': '''''SILENCE!''''' I am [[color:red: ''not'']] finished. I was already wary when you entered that infamous laboratory, [[color:blue: Chronos Institute!]] I knew of the [[color:orange: Time Vision]] project, and the [[color:red: Time Skimmer...]] And with the blueprints of [[color:indigo: Time Stopper,]] there are many things which were now possible. Open your eyes Dr. Albert Wily! Haven't you had enough delusions of world domination!? [[color:red: '''''You lost''''']] because you don't understand the true potential science has for this world. Watch and learn.
* {{Shoryuken}}: Practices it to keep his health up, [[spoiler: which is later copied by the Mega Man's non-combat frame to crack open the Wily Machine.]]

!!Albert Wily
->"I could care less. I'm just here to humiliate you, Light! Maybe I can stop it! '''Beg''' me and I might. Beg me for forgiveness!"
-->[[BigBad Doctor Wily,]] in the process of [[KickTheDog kicking an entire city's worth of dogs.]]
The BigBad who wants to TakeOverTheWorld. He was Light's former partner, but he had creative differences with him, leading him to betray him early on. The recurring EvilGenius. Arrogant, meticulous, and arguably nuts.
----

* BerserkButton: He appears to have two: being second-guessed by his minions, and a certain blue robot...
* ChaoticEvil: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* CrazyPrepared: Dr. Wily apparently prepared the Wily Machine II for [[http://ferretcomic.com/977 any eventuality.]]
* EvilGloating: He tends to do this a lot. Most conspicuously, midway through [[http://ferretcomic.com/884 "Mega Man Hunter".]]
* JustAMachine: His ethos regarding the Robot Masters.
* KickTheDog: Among many other things, he treats the Robot Masters like nothing more than tools and has [[spoiler: Dr. Rely executed.]]
* MadScientist
* ManipulativeBastard: He engages in this in order to get Mason to build him the time machine.

!!John Fodder
->'''Fodder:''' "We only have one type of gun that consistently blows up the Wily bots, so I got a big pile of them heaped up for you. Also I got a pile of heat shields, a pile of super batteries, and a pile of expendable lackeys all up and ready to be blown apart. And as far as robots go, ATLAS and most of the E1 series that hasn't been destroyed are stationed near Monsteropolis. So you'll organize into a single united front, ready to sacrifice your lives whenever necessary or amusing to me."
->'''Gunnady:''' "May I speak freely, sir?"
->'''Fodder:''' [[JerkAss "Nah."]]
Initially the head of the elite US military unit, [[MauveShirt Fodder Force,]] where he became famous for putting the mission over the lives of his men. Following the Dr. Wily debacle, he was promoted to Colonel and approached by General Bauter of Factor G, to oversee the CY project. He never fights unless the odds are in his favor and he always looks out for #1.
----

* BeardOfEvil: Yeah, the dude is a jerk.
* DirtyCoward: He will shoot at Mega Man even after getting help from him, he will abandon his men in the field, and would rather sleep in then deal with any problems. He will only fight when the odds are in his favor and he doesn't care about civilians.
* GeneralFailure: It would be easy to compare his tactics to those of [[TakeThat the WWI British generals]] based on his WeHaveReserves policy if it wasn't [[UpToEleven an insult to the British]]. He's THAT bad with keeping his men alive. It's a miracle he was promoted.
* GeneralRipper: He's solution to everything is to sit in a comfy office and throw more men at the situation.
* GunboatDiplomacy: How Fodder enlists Dr. Kinto's help.
* LawfulEvil: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]
* TheRightHandOfDoom: Actually, The Left Arm of Doom. He lost it to radiation burns while firing an experimental weapon (at Mega Man), and it was replaced with robotic parts.
* ScaryBlackMan: In fact, in personality and behavior he closely resembles [[TheUltimates Ultimate Nick Fury.]]
* WeHaveReserves: His attitude towards his men, to the extent that he relieved Lt. Gunnady of command after she insisted on retrieving the wounded.

!!Proto Man
Dr. Light and Dr. Wily's ''second'' successful intelligent robot (they didn't know it at the time). A mysterious robot who helped a wounded Reset Man to the best of his abilities. He then stole Reset Man's shield and left to explore the world. His current whereabouts are unknown. He mostly appears in filler now.

* TrueNeutral: [=DisguntledFerret=] said this was true [[http://ferretcomic.com/cast.html here.]][[invoked]]

!'''Humans-Minor Characters'''

!!Fodder Force Uber Team
Captain John Fodder's squad in the Mega Man 1 storyline. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Of which, all have died.]] [[spoiler: Except for [[NoNameGiven the redheaded soldier,]] who was brought back from the dead after Light's Time Gambit.]]
----

* FiveManBand
* MauveShirt: Parodied somewhat as the author cut away from the [[spoiler: Red-Headed soldier before we could hear him tell Gunnady his name. He is then killed in the next fight.]] He gets better.

!!Lt. Roberta Gunnady
Colonel Fodder's direct subordinate in Factor G, replacing his original, unseen assistant, [[PunnyName Leon Diedde,]] after his unfortunate death. She initially considers it an honor to be working under someone as famous as him, but later appears to realize that [[BrokenPedestal "notorious" would probably be a better word.]]
----

* CloserToEarth: She is a competent soldier unlike Fodder, for one.
* GoodIsOldFashioned: Trying to be a decent person gets her canned by Fodder.
* QuicklyDemotedWoman: Unfortunate, especially considering that she's one of the strip's five female characters. Three are robots and one is rather minor, not to mention [[spoiler: quite dead. Then she is promoted to Captain of the Fodder Force.]]

!!Jeff Mason
----

* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: Doctor Wily's offer is, in short: "Build me the Time Skimmer or I'll kill you". Interestingly, Mason actually ''does'' refuse for a while, until Dr. Otto convinces him otherwise.
* [[spoiler: FateWorseThanDeath:]] Happens to him near the end of "Not Just Yet". [[spoiler: He and D. Otto cybernetically enslaved as a 'biological computer'.]]
--> [[spoiler: Mason: Kill me.]]

!!Doctor Lowe
A scientist who worked at the Chronos Institute. He helped invent a way to time travel. With 9 comics to his name, he's appeared as much as iXMega Man. He seems to be angry at Dr. Light for some reason.
----

* RecurringCharacter
* RunningGag: His fish-based robots.

!!Doctor Rely
----

* BrainyBrunette: Brainy enough to be building a time machine. Unfortunately, she's a terrible judge of character.
* [[spoiler: DisposableWoman:]] [[spoiler: While Wily kept Dr. Otto and Dr. Mason alive, he does no such thing for Doctor Rely. On the other hand, considering what then happens to Otto and Mason, death was a blessing.]]
----

!Other Filler Characters:

!!DisgruntledFerret:
-> It's kind of irritating that at this point I can blow off Mega Man's arm and he's barely even annoyed. I like torturing characters, and he's taking away my fun here.
--> AltText for strip #959
As the only name given for the author, DisgruntledFerret is a reoccurring character in the filler strips. He loves videogames, is often lazy, gets bored easily, acts tough (he's a ferret), and loves seeing his characters in pain. Enjoys fillers, groundhogs, sleeping, and shiny things.
----

* AuthorAvatar: The only name given for the author.
* AuthorGuestSpot: Averted. He had to specifically say on his character page that DisgruntledFerret would not interfere with the regular story (his comic is [[TropeCodifier hosted on the]] Webcomic/BobAndGeorge website), but he regularly talks to the characters and breaks the fourth wall in filler.
* CharacterAlignment: Listed as "ok".
