This is a CharacterSheet for the ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' trilogy. After three games and an anime series, there are plenty of tropes to go around -- too much, in fact, for one page to handle, so it's been broken down and given three additional pages:
* The Character Sheet for [[Characters/MegaManStarForcePegasusLeoAndDragon the first game and its anime adaptation]].
* The Character Sheet for [[Characters/MegaManStarForce2ZerkerNinjaAndSaurian the second game and the ''Tribe'' anime]].
* The Character Sheet for [[Characters/MegaManStarForce3BlackAceAndRedJoker the third game]].

These are character notes on Geo and his Inner Circle: these characters form the central cast, who are present in every game. Included here are Geo Stelar, Omega-Xis, (Mega Man), Luna Platz, Bud Bison, Zack Temple, Sonia Strumm, and Lyra.


[[folder:Group as a Whole]]

[[caption-width-right:350:''From top left, counterclockwise: Bud, Luna, Geo, Sonia, Zack.'']]

* BigGuyLittleGuy: Bud's the Big Guy since he outsizes the rest of the group. Zack's the Little Guy given he is the shortest and frailest-looking.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Zack is usually the one to correct Bud when he gets something wrong.
* BrainsAndBrawn: Zack and Bud, respectively. Bud is huge and strong while Zack has been consistently made a number of intelligent suggestions, such as Mega Man's secret identity being someone who they all knew.
%%* BullyAndWimpPairing: Bud is the Bully, Zack is the wimp. Though Bud grows out of the Bully role as the series progresses.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: In the anime. Geo - Red; Luna - Blue; Bud - Yellow; Zack - Green; Sonia - Pink. Also, in early promotional materials, each of them has a uniquely colored Transer: Geo's is blue, Luna's green, Bud's red, Zack's yellow, and Sonia's pink.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: When the group consists of Geo, Luna, Bud, and Zack. Geo is phlegmatic, Luna is choleric, Bud is Sanguine, and Zack is melancholic. Pat might be considered Supine.
%%* HeterosexualLifePartners: The two have been friends for long time.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Luna, Bud, and Zack had one in the first game, ''Happy Company'', that was later adapted into the "goofy event" score.
%%* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Zack is the straight man to Bud's wise guy.
* TerribleTrio: Luna, Bud, and Zack have almost all the ingredients of one (goofy theme music included), if not the actual villainy, which makes this a DownplayedTrope. They grow out of it as the series progresses.
%%* ThreePlusTwo: Luna's group plus Geo and Sonia.
%%* ThoseTwoGuys: Bud and Zack are always seen together.
* TrueCompanions: Everyone in the main group is interlinked through the Brother Band, to Geo at least.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: Luna, Bud, and Zack; the former is established to be female while the latter two are boys.

[[folder:Geo Stelar]]
!!Geo Stelar ''(Subaru Hoshikawa)''
[[caption-width-right:250:''"Great. Someone else to complicate my life."'']]
-->Transer: Pegasus (Anime)
-->Wizard: Omega-Xis ''(Warrock)''
-->EM Human: Mega Man
-->Trans-Code: 003

The main character of the series. Technically a fifth grader at Echo Ridge Elementary, Geo hasn't actually attended school in three years, since he first received news of his father's space station accident. Instead, Geo spends his days at home, messing with gadgets and using a distance-study program through a Navi provided by the school. In private, he dreams of one day becoming an astronaut, so he can travel after his father and hopefully find him.

This lifestyle is abruptly shattered one day by two sudden introductions: the first is Luna Platz, a fellow student and Geo's Class Representative, who has taken it upon herself to drag Geo out of his shell and back into class, come Hell or high water; the second is Omega-Xis, a creature from another world who pushes Geo to live a little. Of the two, Geo is more interested in Omega-Xis, and specifically the news he brings with him, both about his father and of the alien monsters trying to hunt him down.

See ''[=Mega Man=]'' for tropes pertaining to Geo and Omega in superhero form.


* AccidentalPervert: When rummaging through Luna's dresser in the third game, he encounters something that is only described as "a little girl's secret" and panics. Nobody catches him at it, though, except for Mega (who is partially to blame).
%%* AchillesInHisTent: Right after [[spoiler:the Gemini chapter]].
* ActionHero: Most of his problems can be solved by defeating the monster in charge.
* {{Adorkable}}: Once Geo's true personality emerges, he begins to behave like this. He fanboys over the trend of the moment (Space, the [=OOPArts=], the Satella Police), has no idea how to handle crushes or romance, and has a hard time accepting praise.
* AncestralWeapon: The Kaiser Knuckle in the first game, which he receives along with [[TragicKeepsake his father's Transer]].
%%* AnimeHair: How is his hair straight up all the time?! It can poke someone's eye out!
* TheAtoner: He remains mindful of his screw-up during the final chapter of the first game.
* BadassBoast: Geo gets a few epic ones in the third installment that seem a bit [[OutOfCharacterMoment out of place]] for someone so mild.
-->'''Mega Man''' ''(to [[spoiler:Jack Corvus]])'': "Your wish will remain only a pathetic pipe dream!!"
-->'''Mega Man''': "[[spoiler:Crimson Dragon]]!! For the people that I love... I will defeat you! You won't see the light of tomorrow!"
* BadassBookworm: In the anime; he's less than pleased about having to do the same homework as the rest of his class because he's already way ahead of them on it.
* BagOfSpilling: Geo not only loses all of his old Battle Cards, he apparently loses his battle-competence every time the ForcedTutorial comes up; in the second game, he even spills his ''willingness to fight at all''. Hesitating against Metennas is not exactly the most inspiring idea, friend.
* BashBrothers:
** He shares this with Ace in the third game, as Mega Man and Acid Ace.
** He also [[RivalsTeamUp teams up with Solo]] during the Jack Corvus chapter, which doubles as a Call Back to [=Mega Man.EXE=]'s and [=ProtoMan=]'s ''Double Hero''. This is taken further in Operation Shooting Star, as a Star Force version of the Double Hero Program Advance is actually possible.
* BerserkButton: His is triggered late in the Tribe anime, [[spoiler:when Dr. Orihime reveals her intentions for the [=OOPArts=]]]. It's perhaps the angriest he gets at a villain in the anime. In general, harming his friends and family is a death wish.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a nice kid who would really prefer not to pick a fight, though Mega Man can - and will - kick your ass if he deems it necessary.
* BigBrotherMentor: [[WordOfGod Designer notes]] mention how Geo was originally meant to have a big brother element in his character. His heart-to-hearts with the FM-ians' hosts certainly edge him towards this, as does his TeamDad status.
* BondingOverMissingParents: Geo's hasn't had a dad for a few years, Misora's recently lost her mom. This happens.
** Same thing happens with Pat. [[spoiler: At least until he reveals that he's Gemini Spark.]]
* BroughtDownToBadass: In the anime, Geo doesn't actually have a [[spoiler:10 Minute Retirement after he splits with Omega-Xis]]. He still runs around being heroic.
* BystanderSyndrome: Averted in the anime, where Geo's natural sense of heroism suffers less from the prolonged depression of the games. The kid will often run ''into'' manifestly dangerous situations in the hope that he can do something, even if Mega isn't around to help. To date, these situations have included: Luna almost falling from a damaged skytram, Gemini Spark causing trouble, and a mass virus outbreak.
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: In the first game. Omega-Xis first hones in on Geo, and the FM-ians followed Mega. The third game plays this straight as well, when Eos shows up ''at school'' and starts making offhand comments about the Wave Road to Geo.
* CharacterDevelopment: Geo stands out among ''Mega Man'' protagonists for having an honest-to-God ''character arc'' in his debut game, something attempted by only a [[VideoGame/MegaManX couple of]] [[VideoGame/MegaManZX other protagonists]], and not to the same extent. Omega-Xis' crash into his life forces Geo to change from a somber {{Hikikomori}} to a ReluctantHero to an ''interplanetary peace-broker''.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Geo initially tends to me serious but later games tends to make him more [[VideoGame/MegamanBattleNetwork Lan-like]] such as dreaming about food in the middle of class.
* CheerfulChild: In the backstory and post-Character Development.
* ChickMagnet: Once he actually starts making friends, it's quite easy for him to attract those of the opposite sex. Luna and Sonia can attest to that.
* TheChosenOne: The Satellite Admins imply his role has to do with being Kelvin's son, but little else is made of this.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Why he just can't sit back and let the FM-ians have their way early in the first game. He also has this in the anime.
* ClarkKenting: Ohhhhhh, yes. He takes absolutely no measures in adjusting his voice and he's the only person with that particular hairstyle in all three games.
* ClassicalAntiHero: It's highly unlikely that anyone would accuse Geo of having strength of character at first. He [[TookALevelInBadass grows out of this]].
* CluelessChickMagnet: Luna (in the games) and Sonia (in the anime) each have an opportunity to be upset with Geo for getting friendly with another female. Geo actually has no such intentions, but that won't stop them.
* ConscienceMakesYouGoBack: What brings Geo back into the fight in the first game.
* ContemplateOurNavels: He depressingly waxes philosophic a bit in the first game, but drops it as he gets a boost in cheer.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: At first, his depression and his [[{{Hikikomori}} shut-in lifestyle]] contrast the normally upbeat and social Lan.
%%* CodeName: His Superhero identity gets upgraded to this in the third game.
%%* CooldownHug: From Luna in the second game, which helps him control the [=OOPArt=].
%%* CrossdressingVoices: In Japan.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: He has brown hair and brown eyes.
* CutenessProximity: In the anime, he tries to get out of deleting a virus (it ''is'' a [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter rabbit on skis]], after all).
* CutsceneIncompetence: In ''[=the second game=]'', Geo's somewhat helpless without the [=OOPArt=].
* CynicismCatalyst: Spent three years as a recluse after the disappearance of his father, afraid of engaging in any relationships.
* [[DarkMagicalGirl Dark Magical Boy]]: Non-canonically, Geo can choose to eschew the Link Force for the various Rogue Super Modes if he chooses. Rogue Noise is quite popular.
* DeadpanSnarker:
** Here and there. His quote above comes after meeting Bob Copper.
** Another example, from the third game: Geo and Mega wonder if they've found Dealer's Base. They then see the giant King Card Matter Wave.
-->'''Geo:''' Yeah... I think we found it.
* DeathGlare: At the [[spoiler: Crimson Dragon]]. Asskicking ensues.
* DeclarationOfProtection: In the original Japanese of the first game, when the EM Ghosts are running around the school. It's the serious form, and it's a very personal moment between Geo and Luna.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Antisocial and bitter to those around him in the beginning; [[CharacterDevelopment genuinely friendly]] to them later on. No specific romantic applications, however. [[ShipTease Of course, for the girls...]]
* DependingOnTheWriter: Geo is a noticeably different person in the games and the anime. In the first game, he's a ReluctantHero and a recluse who is repeatedly forced into situations that require him to act. In the anime, he's blatantly heroic and is willing to go charging off into dangerous situations to help with or without Omega-Xis' resources, even before the alien literally annoys him into going to school.
* DestructiveSavior: In neither the games nor the anime, but rather the short-run ''gag manga''[[note]]to give you an idea for the feel of said manga, Omega-Xis is introduced as chowing down on snacks, farting, and picking his nose at the same time[[/note]]. At one point the townsfolk accost him about how he just punched holes through a series of skyscrapers; he gives a quick bow of apology and flies off, stunning the populace and snapping another row of skyscrapers ''in half''.
* {{Determinator}}: Especially in the third game and the anime. As he himself says, as long as there's hope, there's always a chance.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: He's so far destroyed a living planet buster, a monster that destroyed an ancient civilization, a meteor that would have wiped out most life on Earth along with all of its technology, [[spoiler: a general from an alternate dimension, AND A LIVING BLACK HOLE.]] He's TEN.
* DisappearedDad: Hasn't seen his dad in ''at least'' three years; that was when he first got the news that Kelvin had gone missing. How long it had been since he'd left is never explained.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Boy does he ever. After spending three games longing to see his father again, [[spoiler: the ending of the third game has him finally reunited with his dad.]]
* EnemyMine: With Solo, who has -- to the date -- not once agreed to a full alliance.
* EtTuBrute: [[spoiler:Pat's betrayal prompts Geo's AchillesInHisTent moment in the first game.]]
* ExcaliburInTheStone: In the anime, he must draw the Sword of Berserk from the ground before it yields. This occurs entirely [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind in Geo's head]].
* {{Expy}}: His brown hair resembles [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork Lan]] greatly, and he even lives in a neighborhood that's a lot like ACDC. However, personality wise, his calmer demeanor more resembles... well, [=MegaMan.EXE=]. He even has his [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes fear of ghosts]] in the anime.
* FaceFault: When Crown Thunder reveals his Ship-bound Ghost plan in the anime, complete with small eye twitch.
* FamedInStory: Mr. Shepar kept calling him during Class Roll, and the students kept speculating on who the mysterious no-show was.
* FightingYourFriend: This happens whenever he is forced to fight against Luna, Sonia, Bud, or [[PlayedForDrama Pat]], which tends to happen [[OnceAnEpisode once per game]], but mostly with Bud; by the third game neither Queen Ophiuchus nor Gemini Spark are present and Harp Note can't be fought.
* FingerlessGloves: In his normal outfit.
* {{Foil}}: To several characters, including Mega and Sonia. Also of note is how radically different he is from Lan, [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork his predecessor]].
* {{Forgiveness}}: Offers it to [[spoiler: Cepheus]]. Forges an interplanetary peace treaty. No problem.
* ForWantOfANail: In the anime, Geo's father has only been missing for three months, so his grief hasn't had much chance to settle. Hence, it's much easier for him to interact with others; Mega even gets him to school within the first few episodes just by ''annoying him''.
* FreeRangeChildren: Geo's manages to almost circumnavigate the globe in the second game and the anime; mind you, his mother doesn't particularly ''know'' where he goes when he's out of her sight and would almost certainly disapprove if she knew.
* FriendlessBackground: Losing your dad and being a hermit for three years can do that to you.
* FutureBadass: In ''Operate Shooting Star''.
* GeekPhysique: Is quite physically unimposing, even as [=MegaMan=], and especially when compared to bruisers like Taurus Fire and Yeti Blizzard.
* GenerationXerox: Implied with him and his father. In the anime, they even have the same Transer: Pegasus.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Geo seems to need at least two of these per game whenever he slips back into angst mode. Ironically he's doing these for everyone else in 3. Go go Character Development!
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual: Geo's Visualizer allows him to see electromagnetism, and more importantly the Wave World and all the beings within it, terrestrial and extra-terrestrial. As a matter of fact, Geo has been anointed the TV Tropes ''god'' of Special Glasses, and the Visualizer is held with [[Pantheon/{{Treasures}} the Treasures]].
* GoodIsNotSoft: Geo prefers to solve his problems without violence if possible, but if all options are exhausted or if he's angered enough, all bets are off.
* HelloInsertNameHere: In the first game, with the default name (see above) becoming the CanonName.
* HenshinHero: His powers only activate when he Wave Changes with Mega.
* TheHero: Of the series.
* HeroAntagonist: Briefly in ''Operate Shooting Star''.
* HeroicBSOD: At least once per game, most noticeable in the third.
* HeroicHost: Serves as this for Omega-Xis.
* HeroicWillpower: [[AllThereInTheManual The official website notes]] that whenever Mega Man Finalizes, the appearance of the Shooting Star Pendant on his chest signifies that Geo is in control of the form... which suggests that he runs the risk, either at times or constantly, of ''losing'' that control. Hence this trope.
* TheHerosJourney: In the first game.
* HesBack: During the final chapter of the first game.
* {{Hikikomori}}: Geo's been living as a recluse for ''three years'' in the game, emerging from his home only to stargaze. This is a major part of his initial character, and it particularly sets off his relationship with [[ClassRepresentative Luna]] in that she has absolutely no intention of letting him remain one. Possibly because this wasn't played for laughs, the anime rezoned the time since Kelvin disappeared down to only three months and had Geo going to school within the first few episodes.
* HostageForMcGuffin: [[spoiler:Cygnus Wing]] briefly takes Geo's unconscious body hostage [[spoiler:during his return arc]] to get Omega-Xis to relinquish the Andromeda Key. Dark Phantom tries to use this against Geo late in the Tribe in anime with Hope, but [[SubvertedTrope gets too distracted]] by the pretense he was keeping her around with.
* HumbleHero: He downplays his accomplishments constantly.
* HypercompetentSidekick: Mixed with MundaneUtility, Geo's attempts to boost Luna's chances at winning the third game have him pulling off huge favors for kids through the tactical use of his Mega Man abilities.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Geo really has very little desire to run around and do battle all the time, but he feels he ought to, partially because of Mega's urgings and partially because he tries to follow in his father's footsteps. He eventually accepts his role as Mega Man.
** This jumps up a notch in the optional sidequests: Most of the Accept[=/=]Deny choices are grounded in Geo wondering if he really wants to bother. Except in [[ShipTease certain cases]].
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Many of the boss fights in the first game are these, so by the time he gets to the Gemini chapter, he assumes it's going to turn out to be another happy ending to one of these, too. [[spoiler:It doesn't. Not remotely]].
* ImprobableAge: His age isn't explicitly stated in the games. In the anime, he's 11.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Played straight for a few moments in the anime when he [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules turns down Richie's ludicrous offers of cash]] to keep the Spirit safe.
* InstantCosplaySurprise: He gets forced into the awful Mega Man costume in the first game.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Aaron, Tom, Damian, and Dr. Goodall.
* InterspeciesFriendship: With Mega.
%%* IWillProtectHer
* ItGetsEasier: [[DownplayedTrope Not killing people, mind you]], but the more time Geo spends with Omega, the less reticent he is to go [[AlwaysCheckBehindTheChair digging through]] [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace another person's stuff]]. It bites him [[KleptomaniacHeroFoundUnderwear in the third game]].
* ItsPersonal: He clearly feels betrayed by [[spoiler:Dr. Orihime]] in the Tribe anime.
* ItWasAGift: Both Geo's pendant and [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual the Visualizer]] were inherited from his father, though he doesn't receive the latter until Aaron presents him with it during a visit.
* KidHero: He's 11 according to the anime. He's saved the world three times from every manner of EldritchAbomination.
* KidWithTheLeash: He's this to Omega-Xis whenever he can muster the necessary assertion. Which is rare.
* KleptomaniacHero: When finding power-ups and Battle Cards in places he doesn't live in, yeah.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: He shares most of his father's traits, such as his love for astrology and his sense of justice.
* LonersAreFreaks: In the early first game.
* LuminescentBlush: In the anime, Geo's face glows red when his mother starts prodding him about the kind of women he's interested in.
* MadeOfIron: Geo and Omega meet with a CrashIntoHello. Thing is, as an EnergyBeing, Omega fries the boy on contact
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: The Visualizer is bright green.
* MeaningfulName: Both the Japanese and English have deep meanings for the main character. Both were chosen by his dad because of how important these things were to him.
** In English he has Geo, meaning Earth, and [[PunnyName Stelar]], which describes space objects. The DubNameChange for his first name actually reinforces a shot he takes at Luna about her being his satellite in the first game.
** His Japanese name, Subaru, has ''all sorts'' of this. First, Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades star cluster, while Hoshikawa (lit. "star-river") refers to the Milky Way (and also echoes his full hero name: Shooting Star Rockman). Subaru is also a somewhat obscure verb meaning "to unite" (cf. his signature Fusion Dance with Warrock, the Brother Band in general, and most of his power-ups).[[hottip:*:It also means "to govern", cf. the [=OOPArts=].]]
* MildlyMilitary: When he becomes a member of Satella Police's [[SuperRegistrationAct Project Transcode]].
* MommasBoy: He does '''not''' take it well when Hyde takes his mother hostage in ''Tribe''. He literally ''drags Yeti Blizzard across town'' (ItMakesSenseInContext) to get to her without even realizing it.
** It's also the first step he takes to come out of his [[spoiler:Ten-Minute Retirement]] in the first game when he realizes his mother is in trouble and he can't save her.
* MoralityChain: For Omega-Xis, when he can muster the necessary assertion.
* MoreThanMeetsTheEye: He seems like an antisocial kid at first glance, but as the series progresses, he displays lots of HiddenDepths.
* MysteriousProtector: For Luna, though this plot thread is dropped in later games.
** His embrace of this trope in the first game is what activates the Star Force powers in the first game; Luna reciprocates in the second by giving him a CooldownHug that enables him to control the [=OOPArt=].
* NerdActionHero: He's a kid with a thing for astrology, and he's Mega Man.
* NoSocialSkills: At first.
* ObliviousToLove: Geo has rare moments where Luna and Sonia's more overt romantic efforts sideline him. It doesn't help that he's also Oblivious to Suspicion regarding him and women who happen to not be Luna and Sonia.
* OnlySaneMan: After he got adopted into Luna's sphere of influence, her group's signature musical score from the first game came to represent these moments (since a new friendship theme had been introduced).
** Also, he's this in the Tribe anime whenever he works with Sonia. [[LampshadeHanging Even Harp agrees]].
* OnlyTheWorthyMayPass: In the Tribe anime, Mega Man is [[PowerIncontinence unable to properly wield]] the Sword of Zerker until he undergoes [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind its trial]], drawing it from the ground.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: See ItsPersonal and TranquilFury.
* PantyThief: Poor boy has trouble wrenching himself away from the "[[UnusualEuphemism little girl's secret]]" he finds in Luna's wardrobe in Star Force 3.
** This is [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain much less a problem]] when he happens upon Zack's "little boy's secret".
* PensieveFlashback: In the early episodes of the anime, reflecting on either the news of the space station accident or the people urging him to go to school.
* PerpetualFrowner: Mega Man never smiles (not a single one of his possible mugshots is smiling), but he didn't really start smiling as Geo until the Gemini chapter in the first game. Which is really [[HarsherInHindsight kind of sad]].
* PlayerCharacter: In the real world.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Geo stands by the whole working-together thing, and has a reason for doing so that isn't just a gratuitous Aesop: the Brother Band system is basically just a communications network at first, but Mega Man is able to actually derive physical power from it.
* PsychoticSmirk: In the anime, when he gets an idea as to ''how'', exactly, Omega-Xis is going to pay for wrecking his telescope earlier in the episode.
* PunnyName: The deliberate mispelling of his last name.
%%* RedOniBlueOni: With Omega-Xis. Inverted, as Geo's primary color is red.
* ReluctantWarrior: VERY much so in the first game. Less, but there, in the second.
* ResignedToTheCall: The latter half of the first game has him accept that he has no choice but to protect the planet.
%%* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: He's the Savvy Guy to Sonia's Energetic Girl.
* SchoolPlay: How Luna gets him to school.
** PlayingATree: The important, absolutely necessary part she needed him for.
** Later, when Pat is unable to perform, Geo inherits the CheapCostume for [[HilarityEnsues major irony points]] as Luna shoves him into the lead role of... [[LovesMyAlterEgo himself]].
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: In the Tribe anime. See Hyde and Phantom's Scooby Doo Hoax below. Way below.
* SecretIdentity: Mega Man's. Duh.
* SecretKeeper: As Sonia's Brother, he's this. All of his Brothers appear to be this for him, too.
* SeeThruSpecs: His dad's Visualizer can see some electromagnetic waves; it's not until Omega-Xis accidentally crashes into his face and activates it that Geo can fully see the Wave World. It turns into the Visualize Visor when Geo becomes [=Mega Man=].
* ShirtlessScene: During the BeachEpisode in the third game.
%%* ShonenHair
* SkySurfing: On the [=SkyBoard=] Matter Wave, Ollie, which gets ''[[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot devastatingly]]'' little use.
* TheSlacker: Subverted. Luna may very well see him this way, considering she knows he's been hiding away from the world for three years and he certainly doesn't want to put any more effort into anything than he has to. In truth he home-studied of his own volition all that time for the sake of his dream of going to space, his antisocial tendencies being the only reason he didn't go back to school. He even makes extra sure to do his homework before going on any big adventures once he gets back into school.
** According to the anime, he's so far ahead of everyone on the homework he resents having to do it all over again to pace with the class.
* TheSmartGuy: Of the S.P. Commandos.
* TheSouthpaw: Since his device is on his left hand, he wields all his battle cards and the Mega Buster with his left.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: It's "''Stelar''", not "Stellar".
* StellarName: Literally in this case, "Stelar" being one letter away from "stellar".
* SupportingLeader: In the Commandos.
* SweetTooth: He unsuccessfully tries to "taste test" one of Luna's sweet potato muffins in Tribe.
* TakeUpMySword: In the first game he receives his father's Transer and the Kaiser Knuckle in the first postgame, which is the [[InfinityPlusOneSword strongest weapon in the game]] outside of [[InfinityMinusOneSword bonus or secret weapons]].
* TeamDad: Keeps the gang from breaking down during the third game after Luna is taken from them.
* TenMinuteRetirement: Played straight in the first game after [[spoiler: his fight with Gemini Spark]]. Subverted in the anime, where he only [[spoiler:tells Mega to take a hike]], but still runs around trying to help.
* ThinkNothingOfIt: Plenty of it in the third game.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Geo never threatens to kill someone, save for special occasions.
-->"You used her and hurt her. You toyed with our Link Power. [[spoiler:Hollow]]... there will be no tomorrow for you!"
* TouchedByVorlons: Poor Geo was touched rather violently, bombarded by a mass of electromagnetic radiation one night that at the very least knocked him out. [[FridgeHorror It's remarkable]] [[StockEpilepticTrees how little]] [[AllJustADream anyone has a]] [[DyingDream problem with this]].
* TriangRelations: With Luna and Sonia.
* TroubledButCute: Has daddy issues, an antisocial streak, and two major love interests. Fortunately, thanks to his friends, he endures and gets through most of them.
* TugLoverWar: As Mega Man, between Luna and Harp Note late in the anime. He manages to get out of it with nothing damaged and an uneasy peace between the girls.
* TurnOutLikeHisFather: A recurring theme throughout the whole series is where exactly Geo stands in relation to his father. As he emerges from his shell, he's flattered by the comparisons; [[CharacterDevelopment by the third game]], however, he starts lightly brushing them aside, insisting he be considered as his own person.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: By implication. Compare him at the beginning of the first game to his childhood flashbacks in the third.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: Even as Mega Man, he can't get a handle on his mother's quirks.
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: [=MegaMan=] the elementary schooler! [[{{Hikkikomori}} Well, not for the first half of the first game]], but still!
* WellDoneSonGuy: To a father he hasn't seen in years.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Just like... well, [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork MegaMan]], he's really scared of ghosts.
* WillNotTellALie: He struggles to evade his mother's questions rather than lie to her outright, and feels very bad about it when he fails in the third game.
* WouldHitAGirl: There are at least four female enemies he takes down across the series, not counting the rematches.
* YouAreInCommandNow: When Luna is taken from the group and he steps up to plate. [[spoiler:Temporarily]].
* YouKilledMyFather: Our boy does NOT take kindly to [[spoiler:hearing Mega had a hand in the space station accident. It is a bit of a subversion in that Mega ''didn't'' kill Kelvin and is actually the one who ''saved'' him.]]

!!Omega-Xis ''(Warrock)''
[[caption-width-right:250:''"Hey kid, stop screaming like a girl and hear me!"'']]
-->Partner: Geo Stelar

An alien that fell from the sky and landed on Geo. This rowdy, loud-mouthed FM-ian knows what happened to Geo's father but insists on keeping mum, not in small part to keep Geo doing as he says. It is with Omega-Xis' power that Geo becomes the new Mega Man; unlike the other FM-ians, Omega-Xis cannot control Geo's mind while they are fused, and so he has to depend on the kid's ability to fight, which is... lacking.

It is later revealed that (1) he was one of the aliens who attacked Kelvin's space station, and (2) turned him into an EM-being in order to save his life. (3) Omega-Xis is also ''not an FM-ian'', but an AM-ian, a survivor of FM's destroyed sister planet, and finally (4) he is also carrying the Andromeda Key, which activates Planet FM's Planet Eater. While the going is rough, eventually he and Geo form a strong alliance and become lasting friends.


* ActionHero: Mega starts pushing Geo in this direction.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Not only is he totally understandable, he even affects particular mannerisms. Fluent ''and'' macho, that's how we like ''our'' aliens.
* AntiHero: [[Analysis.AntiHero Pragmatic to Unscrupulous Type]]. In the first game alone, he yanks Geo around by his Transer, hacks and erases information that could get either of them in trouble, makes really dick moves (like knocking people out with a pitching machine) in the name of getting his goals accomplished, and shares in his species' disregard for humankind, but at heart he genuinely wants his human partner to live a little.
* ArtifactOfDoom:
** The [=OOPart(s)=] from the second game (which varies depending on the [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo version]]), whose power Mega Man imbibes sometime after Omega-Xis ''swallows it''.
** He also [[spoiler:is secretly carrying the Andromeda Key]] in the first game. Well, secretly as far as Geo's concerned. The FM-ian's know it already.
%%* AwesomeMcCoolname: Warrock in Japan.
* BigWhat: Lets out one in the anime when Geo asks him to enter as a D-pet in a contest to win a new EM-telescope after some reckless riding in a lawnmower totaled his last one.
* BoisterousBruiser: Loud, proud, and never misses a chance to go "[[CatchPhrase buck wild]]".
* BreathWeapon: In buster form, he can launch blasts of energy from his mouth. This is kicked UpToEleven with the Atomic, Genocide, and Vanishing [[KillItWithFire Blazer]] [[FinishingMove Big Bangs]], which launch torrents of ''thermonuclear death'' that would do Godzilla proud. Averted in the third game when the Mega Buster gains a traditional cannon barrel, in exchange giving Mega the ability to manifest alongside both Geo and Mega Man. That said, [[spoiler:his clones barf lightning as one of their attacks]].
* CatchPhrase: In the third game, he relishes every chance to go "buck wild"[[hottip:*:a phrase that was first used as early as the Plesio Surf chapter in the second game]]. He's also been known to use "Stay Frosty."
* CharacterExaggeration: His HotBlooded nature. In the first game, he loved a good brawl but was mostly levelheaded. Come the third game, he's a borderline BloodKnight who Geo has to constantly calm him down.
* CombatPragmatist: Mega will be quite happy to share on the principles of fighting ''smart'', very few of which have any relationship with the concept of honor.
** In the anime, Mega also makes a point of not getting into fights he can't win. [[spoiler:This includes foes like Gemini Spark, whom he refuses to fight, at least until Geo charging off on his own makes him change his mind]].
* ConscienceMakesYouGoBack: In the anime, he refuses to go into battle against Gemini Spark, since he and Geo are totally outmatched. Geo [[ChronicHeroSyndrome goes charging off anyway]] without him and he is suddenly unable to abandon the boy.
* CorruptionOfAMinor: The whole PantyThief misadventure in Luna's dresser can largely be chalked to fallout from Mega's less-than-wonderful influence.
* CrashIntoHello: Clump of electromagnetic radiation smashes into Geo's head one night. Hi, there.
* CursedWithAwesome: In the second game, Mega ponders the significance of the [=OOPArt=] in his belly and concludes that he's cool with any "curse" that makes him stronger.
* DoomedHometown: His home world, [[spoiler:Planet AM, was destroyed by the [=FMians=] Planet Eater]].
* EarthShatteringKaboom: In the first episode of the anime, Omega-Xis is caught on an asteroid by Cepheus' minions. He uses the [[spoiler:Andromeda Key]] to distract them and skedaddle.
* EnemyWithin: The [=OOPArt=] (and the Tribesmen within) have a bad habit of acting up when they're not wanted.
* EnergyBeings: His species are sentient lumps of electromagnetic radiation.
* EverythingsWorseWithBears: Omega-Xis has some minor ursine features (insofar as an armored fireball actually could). In the anime, Bud accuses his D-Pet disguise of being a snot-ugly bear. He may possibly have a connection to the Ursa constellations.[[hottip:*:In theosophy, the Ursa Major constellation is linked to the Pleiades constellation; both a part of a series including the planet Earth, the sun, and the star Sirius. Yeah, have fun with that.]]
* EvilKnockoff: In the third game, [[spoiler:Dealer uses data acquired by Jack and Tia to create Omega-Xis clones. An entire horde of them are sent to attack WAZA HQ, and they later appear in random encounters at the group's base.]]
* {{Expy}}: Looks somewhat similar to [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork Gregar, and Gregar Beast-Out [=MegaMan=] ]], while his role of combining with Geo is a bit like that of Rush in Videogame/MegaManClassic series. When fused with Geo as Mega Man, they share with the Gregar Beast-Out's a automatic gatling buster, and lock-on ability with chips. His Beast Slap ability in Star Force 3 is also very similar to the Beast-Outs' double claw slash attack.
* FaceOfAThug: It's a scary one, alright.
* {{Foil}}: To Acid, who acts very professionally and unemotionally (though the latter's not averse to a little snark at Mega's expense). Mega gets downright pissed off whenever Acid's around.
* ForcedTutorial: If it's about battle, Omega-Xis is teaching class.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When the Satellite Admins tell him that his frequency is very similar to their own, he asks them immediately if they're survivors of Planet [=AM=]. [[spoiler:Omega-Xis is a survivor of [=AM=] himself.]]
* GeoEffects: In the third game, he can eat up an area of the field for you.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: A minor example in the first game, where he snaps Geo out of his Study Wave-induced trance by slugging him in the cheek.
* GratuitousEnglish: His original name.
* GratuitousGreek: His dub name.
* HarbingerOfImpendingDoom: And bringing the FM-ians weapon Andromeda.
* HeelFaceTurn: In the anime, [[spoiler:trying to possess Daigo's mind while under the effects of the Brother Band led to this in the backstory]]. Didn't really save him from being a Jerkass, though. Largely Averted in the first game, [[spoiler:where his motivation has always been to extract his revenge on the FM-ians]].
* {{Herald}}: Omega-Xis crashes into Geo's life at the start of the series, bringing the FM-ians on his tail.
* HeroInsurance: He equates being popular with getting a little more leeway in this regard.
* InterspeciesFriendship: With Geo [[spoiler: and his father Kelvin]].
* ItsPersonal: In the games, Mega nurses a personal vendetta against [[spoiler:King Cepheus, who sicced Andromeda on his home planet of AM. He gets over it at the end]].
* {{Jerkass}}: He began as this, even going so far as telling Geo he thinks all humans are completely useless; except for ''him'', of course, because Geo's useful.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Naturally, he settles into this kind of role over time.
* TheKirk: Of the third game's Wizard PowerTrio, against Acid's Spock and [[spoiler:Taurus']] [=McCoy=].
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:He had no idea he was from Planet AM in the anime.]]
* LivingWeapon: Mega Man's Mega Buster is literally his head.
* MeaningfulName: ''Warrock'' is the most belligerent of the franchise's heroes to date? Say it ain't so!
* MorphicResonance: Largely averted in the first two games with the Transformation system: Mega gets a pretty dramatic makeover depending on which Super Mode used.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: And ''definitely'' no respect for your privacy. His influence on Geo in this regard has been... [[PantyThief not perhaps the most ideal]].
* NoSocialSkills: He comes at the problem via the opposite tack from Geo. Where Geo's social sins are due to defect, Omega's are due to excess.
* PowerFloats: Justified in that he has no legs. Though all EM beings can do this.
* PursuedProtagonist: In the first game.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Subverted: Mega's just a jerk. Unless you're an enemy of his, in which case you should play this very straight. [[spoiler: Just ask the hundreds of his clones that dared to attack him. He ripped them all to shreds.]]
%%* RedOniBlueOni: He's the Red Oni to both Geo and Acid.
* {{Rival}}: To Acid, due to him landing the [[FinishingMove last blow]] on a {{Brainwashed}} wizard.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Given that (A) the Japanese language is not meant to really use English words and that (B) our boy's name is two English words smashed together, it's hard to tell exactly how it's meant to be written in its proper form.
* StayFrosty: He drops this a lot in the third game.
* SummonMagic: With the upgrades in the third game, he can temporarily materialize to swipe enemies or the field to Geo's advantage.
* TellMeAboutMyFather: Omega was the last person to speak to Kelvin. Geo ''really'' wants to know what happened, but Omega's keeping mum.
* TookALevelInBadass: Prolonged exposure to Noise in the third game renders him resistant enough to whale on the walls of Jamming until they break open.
* {{Transhuman}}: Technically he's a trans-alien. In the third game, Omega-Xis is caught in Geo's terminal when he downloads the [=Hunter-VG=] upgrade, part of which involves ''forcefully transforming'' him into a Wizard program. While he clearly finds this unpleasant, in the long-run it provides a lot of benefits, including allowing Omega-Xis to pass himself off as a Wizard and not an alien freeloader, change up Megaman's appearance, and allow him to materialize during battle since the new Wizard system changes up the FusionDance mechanics of Wave Change.
* WeWantOurJerkBack: During the final Filler arc of the anime, the comet Rajione VI enters Earth's atmosphere and produces major changes in the FM-ians. In Omega-Xis's case, it replaces his rough personality with one that might be accurately described as Dandyism. This drives Geo (and, as we learn later, Omega-Xis himself) mad.
** The first thing he does is compare the comet [[HoYay with Geo's "lovely eyes"]], though whether he actually finds them lovely or simply was led to use it as a complimentary adjective is up for debate.
* WolverineClaws: His Beast Slap attack.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: His return trip to FM has more or less been nixed. [[spoiler: Not mentioning his true home]].

[[folder:Mega Man (Rockman)]]
!!Mega Man ''(Rockman)''
[[caption-width-right:350:''"Let's rock, Mega!"'']]

The eponymous hero of the series, and Geo's and Omega-Xis' fused form. Unlike many of their opponents, Geo and Mega both retain their distinct personalities as Mega Man, with Geo as the main figure (and the one most people speak to) and Mega as the Buster.

* AdaptiveArmor: His armor changes shape, color and (in the first two games) buster design to fit the transformation he's undergone. Sometimes his hairstyle changes, too.
* ArmCannon: An interesting variant; instead of the straight-up [[CoolGuns cannon-style]] buster, the original Mega-Buster had Geo's arm swallowed by [[ Omega-Xis' head]]. Takes on a more traditional form in the third game.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Inevitable given the nature of the series, but one of the most egregious examples is the fact that Geo can prance around inside a black hole without worry. In reality, ''anything'' gets torn apart inside a black hole since the forces inside approach ''infinity'' in all directions in a process called spaghettification.
** Then there's the fact that, barring a few teleports, he can actually WALK across planets light years away from Earth.
* BadassAdorable: He's only ten years old, is generally flustered by praise and is always willing to help people. He has also beaten a WeaponOfMassDestruction, dozens of powerful EM beings, ''three'' [[PhysicalGod Physical Gods]] ([[spoiler: one of whom controlled a ''black hole'']]), [[spoiler: and a corruptive meteor]].
* BagOfSpilling: He's always reduced to 100 HP and a smattering of weaker Battle Cards for each new installment.
* BarrierWarrior: If he uses any Aura or Barrier cards or abilities. See also Luckily My Shield Will Protect Me.
* [[PinkGirlBlueBoy Blue Boy]]: To Harp Note's Pink Girl.
* CardsOfPower: He uses Battle Cards.
* CatchPhrase: His PreMortemOneLiner[=/=]PreAsskickingOneLiner in the third game, a ShoutOut to his original Japanese name of Rockman.
--> '''Mega Man''': Let's rock, Mega!
* CharacterTitle: Moreso in the original Japanese (''Shooting Star Rockman'') than the English (''Mega Man Star Force'').
* ChestInsignia: Geo's [[ItWasAGift Shooting Star Pendant]] is embedded in the center of Mega Man's chest, rather than the [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork traditional artistic design]]. The [[AllThereInTheManual official website notes]] that it symbolizes Geo's bond with his father, as well as showing that Geo is still in control of himself in his Finalized Noise Form.
** Not specifically ''chest'' insignias, but Black Ace and Red Joker each have triangular marks that are displayed on each helmet. They represent the special symbols of the characters he's copying (Upside down A for Black Ace and Triangular J for Red Joker).
* ClarkKenting: Ohhh, yes. That a young man seen around town is the only one with the same hairstyle as the local SuperHero is [[SarcasmMode clearly not at all suspicious]]. In the anime, Geo doesn't even bother to adjust his voice. To his credit, Goyouda is actually quite suspicious of Geo, but makes neither the hair connection nor the voice connection mentioned.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Maybe. Mega Man could easily be described as Geo [[PoweredArmor wearing Mega as armor]].
* CombiningMecha: [=Mega Man=] can fuse his Tribe Powers in this fashion.
** He can also stack two Noises together in a similar fashion, but that does little more than recoloring his armor and so is not quite this trope.
* CuttingOffTheBranches: Averted in the anime's first season, in which Geo and Omega-Xis gain access to all three Star Force forms, but played straight in Tribe, where they only achieve Thunder Zerker. Also played straight in each game where he only gets one SuperMode depending on the version of the game played.
* DiscardAndDraw: He has a new "Force" (Star, Tribe, Noise) in each game. Justified, as the tools he uses to perform these changes are gone with each game. The Satellite Admins leave at the end of the first game, and the OOPART he used in the second game is lost to the bottom of the sea.
* DualWielding: It's possible in the anime.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Present but justified in the first game, [[InvisibleToNormals since no one except the gang and the FM-ians are really aware of Mega Man's existence]]. Heavily averted by the third game, since Mega Man is a worldwide celebrity and hero for his actions in the previous two games thanks to advancing EM Technology along with the influx of Z-Waves from the FM-ian and Mu invasions making him visible. This actually becomes a plot point when his fame [[spoiler: causes Ice's jealousy when Geo inadvertently stole the show from Belle, causing Jack and Tia to transform the Wizard into Diamond Ice.]]
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: While almost every fighter taps into the cycle, he's one of the few who can take advantage of the whole thing.
* EnergyAbsorption: According to the game's official website, Mega Man's shoulder gear doubled as the "wave-toss device", which drew in extra EM energy from Mega Man's surroundings.
* ExplosiveOverclocking: Thunder Zerker's ''Warrior Soul'' card, which grants Mega Man a maxed-out buster and [[ImmuneToFlinching Super Armor]] in exchange for [[HeroicRROD constant loss of HP]].
* ExpositoryHairstyle: Mitigating the ClarkKenting to a degree, [=Mega Man=]'s hair changes both in volume and style depending on his given SuperMode.
** In concept art, this sometimes got out of hand; an early design for Fire Leo swapped out Geo's hairdo for [[DragonBallZ Raditz's]].
* EvilCostumeSwitch: The Rogue Tribes all employ a [[PaletteSwap color palette]] of Black, Red, and Purple compared to their originals.
* {{Expy}}: This [=Mega Man=]'s streamlined bodysuit-based design is distinctly in the style of his predecessor, rather than the layered armor designs of the robotics timeline.
** [=MegaMan=]'s Fire Saurian Tribe On has more than a passing resemblance to [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Fighting Fefnir]]. Even their poses on the [[ official]] [[ artworks]] are similar.
* FamedInStory: The sequels have people easily recognize who the savior of the planet is ([[ClarkKenting except when he's not on the job]]), and treat him with the respect that deserves. By the third game, he gets his own candies in his image.
* FlashStep: The ''Mega Attack'', which allows Mega Man to home in on enemies and strike from close-range. Great with melee weapons, not so great with ranged ones.
* FusionDance: Between Geo and Mega.
* FutureSpandex: Carries on the tradition from the Battle Network series.
* GeometricMagic: Wave Commands, from the second game.
* {{Hammerspace}}: From whence Mega Man pulls his Battle Cards in the anime.
* HenshinHero: When Geo combines with Mega to become Mega Man, Mega's armor refits itself into a bodysuit of sorts for Geo.
** OlderAlterEgo: Certain comparison shots from the promotional art for Black and Red suggest Mega Man is more physically mature than Geo.
** PowerDyesYourHair: A subtle example (in contrast to Harp Note), comparing Geo and Mega Man in the official art will show that Mega Man's hair is darker than Geo's brunet locks, with an element of purple.
** PowerMakesYourHairGrow: Mega Man's Super Modes all have different hair styles.
* HopeBringer: In the second and third game, Mega Man actually becomes recognized as a symbol of hope for people in their DarkestHour.
** A special instance of this is the OneManArmy mini-game during the invasion of WAZA in the third game, in which Mega Man holds off an entire army of Omega-Xis clones summoned by Dealer that were mauling the Satella Police Wizards that originally served as defense. [[HeadsIWinTailsYouLose They get in anyway]], but he still costs them plenty.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Early in the anime. Geo's first fight sees him manage to take out a few viruses by flailing around in a panic and accidentally walloping one in the head.
* InASingleBound: In the anime.
* InstantExpert: Tutorials notwithstanding, Mega Man has really very little problem operating anything in his arsenal that might give him trouble. Mega himself says Geo has a natural knack for battling. [[DeadpanSnarker He replies that he doesn't want to have a knack for it]].
** Even more pronounced in the anime, wherein Geo easily adapts to his powers and by episode 26 is suddenly doing martial arts tactics.
* {{Invocation}}: For transforming and battling.
--> '''Transforming in 1 and 2''': EM Wave Change! Geo Stelar, On The Air!
--> '''Transforming in 3''': [[ByThePowerOfGrayskull Transcode]]! Mega Man!
--> ''' Before plot-important battles''': Wave Battle! Ride On!
--> '''Before the FinalBoss''': Last Battle! Ride On!
* JapaneseBeetleBrothers: A comparison between the Black Ace and Red Joker forms should let you recognize BA's single horn (kabutomushi) and RJ's dual horn (kuwagatamushi).
* LightningBruiser: Mega Man is [[FlashStep incredibly fast]], has SuperStrength and can easily adapt to any situation, and making him give up and back down is [[{{Determinator}} almost impossible]]. Whether he embodies "Lightning" or "Bruiser" more depends on the player's Battle Card deck and the Super Modes set up to use it.
* LimitBreak: The ''Big Bang'' attacks are special techniques [[SignatureMove unique to]] each of Mega Man's {{Super Mode}}s; accessed by successfully countering his opponents. These powerful attacks generally [[DiscOneNuke do massive damage to the whole field]], and can be generally expected [[FinishingMove to wipe out most viruses in one stroke]].
** There are three ''Star Force'' Big Bangs in the first game, seven ''Link Force'' Big Bangs[[note]]Three for the main Tribes, another three for the Double Tribes, and one for the Tribe King[[/note]] and another three for the Rogue Tribes[[note]]They're basically just recolors of the main Tribe Big Bangs, though[[/note]], and a final seven ''Noise Force'' Big Bangs[[note]]One for each element (including neutral), each shared by two different Noises (e.g. Dyna Wave is shared by the Cancer and Virgo Noises), and two unique ones for the Finalized Noises. Nothing for Rogue Noise, though[[/note]] for a total of 20. Tropes Included:
*** AllYourColorsCombined: The Czar Delta Breaker (Tribe King).
*** AllYourPowersCombined: The [=LFBs=] that belong to either the Double Tribes or the Tribe King.
*** {{BFS}}: The Thunderbolt Blade (Lightning Zerker, Rogue Zerker, Elec Noises) and the Elemental Blade ([=ZerkerXNinja/NinjaXZerker=]).
*** BreathWeapon: Atomic Blazer (Fire Leo, Fire Noises), Genocide Blazer (Fire Saurian, Rogue Saurian), and Vanishing Blazer ([=ZerkerXSaurian/SaurianXZerker=]).
*** DeathFromAbove: Meteor Light Barage (NonElemental Noises).
*** DoppelgangerAttack: Demon Flurry (Green Ninja, Rogue Ninja) and Enma Gale Garrison ([=SaurianXNinja/NinjaXSaurian=]).
*** EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Elemental Cyclone (Green Dragon, Wood Noises).
*** FlechetteStorm: See DoppelgangerAttack.
*** GravityMaster: Black End Galaxy (Black Ace).
*** HandBlast: Red Gaia Eraser (Red Joker), Meteor Light Barrage.
*** InstantRunes: Magician's Freeze (Ice Pegasus).
*** KamehameHadoken: The Atomic Blazer is styled like this.
*** KillItWithFire: See BreathWeapon.
*** KillItWithIce: See InstantRunes. In the anime, this is HarmlessFreezing.
*** KillItWithWater: Dyna Wave (Aqua Noises).
*** NukeEm: See BreathWeapon, Red Gaia Eraser.
*** SingleStrokeBattle: Black End Galaxy.
*** SpinAttack: Elemental Cyclone (Green Dragon, Wood Noises).
*** SuckingInLines: The Big Bang attacks with ''Blazer'' in the name may use this.
*** WaveMotionGun: Red Gaia Eraser concentrates ''three'' of these on the enemy territory.
** ''Black Ace'' and ''Red Joker'' also saw the re-introduction of Program Advances, here named "[[InSpace Galaxy Advances]]". Many of them can also be obtained as standalone cards through Illegal Data.
* LineOfSightName: In the games, Geo comes up with it after a quick look at his left arm. Averted in the anime, where (in the dub) Omega-Xis suggests it directly, and Luna and Copper pick up on it before Geo has an opportunity to even wrap his head around it.
** In the original anime, the aversion becomes much funnier, as the name gets made up entirely on accident:
-->'''Luna:''' You are?
-->'''Subaru:''' I'm... Hoshi--
-->'''Warrock:''' *Ahem*
-->'''Subaru:''' Huh? Rock?
-->'''Luna:''' Rock? (Goyouda shoves her aside) Maa![[note]]Rock? Whoa![[/note]]
-->'''Goyouda:''' Rock-''Man'', you say? I have business with you, Rockman!
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Mega Man has a built-in EM Shield that he can summon in the games; in the anime he mostly uses barrier cards.
* MagicKnight: Mostly during the second game, considering the Magic From Technology undertones peculiar to anything Mu influences.
* MaskPower: Mega Man's headgear is precluded from being a helmet by virtue of the massive hole through which his hairstyle emerges.
* MegaManning: [[TropeNamer Obviously.]] As with Battle Network, most Battle Cards will be [[PowersArePrograms usable instances]] of enemy attacks. When [=MegaMan=] starts using Noise Change, he gains access to powers based on the original invading FM-ians.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: In the anime, the Star Force counts as this. It was, unfortunately, so powerful that it [[StoryBreakerPower snapped the plot in half]]. Instead of Geo and Omega-Xis working to get the FM-ians off of Earth, the show shifted focus to the wacky lives of the FM-ians and what kind of zany schemes they could get away with before Mega Man showed up to mop them up.
* MorphWeapon: The Mega Buster morphs into the various weapons Geo uses to perform the Battle Card attacks. The third game changes this into the Mega ''Arm'', which is [[YouHaveResearchedBreathing Geo's normal arm]] that isn't covered by Omega-Xis, which again morphs into the other weapons.
** AnAxeToGrind: The Axe cards.
** ArmCannon: Aside from being the normal form of the Mega Buster, it can also morph into Cannon form.
** CombatHandFan: With Windy Attack.
** CoolSword: All the Sword cards, Bushido, Brave Sword...
** FireBreathingWeapon: The Tail Burner (which are a CaptainErsatz set for the Hell Burner chips in Battle Network 6, down to the weapon design), Mech Flame, Mad Flame and Dance Flame cards. The [=MegaBuster=] becomes this with all the fire forms.
** GatlingGood: With Gatling and Mad Vulcan.
** ImprobableWeaponUser: A LOT of the weapons. He's used everything from Leaf Blowers to Coins to summoning actual viruses.
** PowerFist: The Knuckle and Uppercut class weapons.
** TheStraightAndArrowPath: Using Skull Arrows.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Can transform his arm into massive hammers and lift bombs and large as he is without breaking a sweat despite having the physique of the average ten-year old who engages in light exercise. Taken even further in the anime, where he catches a falling monorail with ease and is able to swat viruses around with his bare hands.
* MultiformBalance: In the earlier installments, whatever Super Mode Mega Man used depended on version, though the other forms could be accessed through Brother data; the forms generally fit into a Power (Fire Leo and Fire Dinosaur) vs. Mobility (Ice Pegasus and Wood Ninja) vs. Technique (Green Dragon and Thunder Zerker) scheme. In the third game, all Super Modes are available and achieved at random, though the specific chances depend on the version. Each form gives different bonuses.
** In the anime, Mega Man will pull out a Star Force form more or less at random (save against Gemini Spark in the final arc), but in Tribe, Geo gets stuck with Thunder Zerker.
* MundaneUtility: The vast majority of the sidequests will have him need to use his powers to achieve tasks that could be done with mundane means. Fetch a paper airlane from a rooftop? Done. Spend a day becoming a one-man postal service? No problem.
* NonElemental: In usual form; the Tribe King and Finalized forms count, too.
* NotQuiteFlight: Riding the Wave Roads is the fastest form of Mega Man's travel. He isn't flying, he transforms himself into a signal that just happens to be transmitted somewhere else.
* OlderAlterEgo: Promotional art from Star Force 3 suggests Mega Man is more physically mature than Geo.
* OneManArmy: [[spoiler: Holds off an entire army of clones by himself and Omega-Xis in the third game, while the entirety of WAZA could barely take them.]] Not to mention the innumerable number of viruses he deletes and the Solar System's strongest EM Warriors.
* OneWayVisor: The "[[AllThereInTheManual Visualize Visor]]", [[AvertedTrope which mostly allows you to see Geo's eyes underneath]], [[DoubleSubversion save in]] [[ the boxart]] for ''Operate Shooting Star'', in which Mega Man is a Hero Antagonist. This visor is likely the only thing keeping Geo's identity safe.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: A heroic example: Mega Man Finalizes for the final confrontation with the Crimson Dragon. One asskicking, served fresh.]]
* PaperThinDisguise: For Geo. That ''hair'', man.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Some art from calenders released with the second game portrays Mega Man as one through using Tribe On.
* PhysicalGod: As the [[ VS Battles Wiki]] points out, Mega Man travels intergalactic distances and goes into battle with cosmic forces (and with his Black Ace Finalized form, he can ''create and destroy black holes'', a feat which is '''''scientifically impossible'''''). In terms of raw power, he's arguably the strongest Mega Man to date with [[VideoGame/MegaManX X, Zero,]] [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork and MegaMan.EXE]] as rivals in the power department.
* PlayerCharacter: For the Wave World and in combat.
* PowerIncontinence: The [=OOPArts=] give Geo a run for his money. In the second game, Geo needs a CooldownHug and a Relationship Upgade with Luna to control them.
* PowersAsPrograms: Mega Man is almost unique among EM Humans for the ability to use Battle Cards, which allows him to make use of pretty much any weapon he can get a card of. He's not the only one, technically: Harp Note and Rogue can use them in the anime, while Acid Ace and [[spoiler:Dread Joker]] pack a few in the third game.
** The restructuring of the abilities system in the second game allows Mega Man to treat his minor power-ups as these, too.
* RedBaron: Starts getting nicknamed the "[[AscendedMeme Blue Bomber]]" during his rise to fame in the second game.
** Some will refer to him as the fallen star warrior ([=SF2=]) or the Blue Shooting Star ([=SF3=]).
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Thunder Zerker Mega Man on the ''Warrior Soul''[[hottip:*:In the original, "Warrior Blood"]] Battle Card.
* RedMage: He can use Battle Cards, which means he can use all elemental allignments and attributes as he sees fit. Following the original archetype, he is completely capable of using both attack cards as well as buffs, traps and healing cards.
* RescueRomance: Luna first develops feelings for Mega Man when her life is saved, from Taurus Fire in the games, and from falling to her death in the anime.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The first two games spell it "[=MegaMan=]", like his ''Battle Network'' predecessor, but the third splits it into separate words.
* SuperMode: Mega Man has a [[DiscardAndDraw different powerup]] system each game.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: If Mega Man is currently using an uncontrolled [=OOPArt=] he runs the risk of running wild.
** The manual notes that the Shooting Star pendant symbolizes that Geo's in control of his Finalized form, which raises the possibility that there ''might'' be circumstances in which he's ''not'' in control, but this is never addressed in the game.
* SuperSpeed: The Mega Attack is a FlashStep. Given that he's an EM Wave, he should technically be able to travel at near light speed. [[spoiler: In the third game, he ''walks'' to Sagittarius A*, the black hole the Milky Way Galaxy revolves around in about 5-10 minutes in order to confront Sirius. This means he moves at a speed of 2.6 ''Billion'' times faster than light!]]
* SuperStrength: The anime shows that Geo gets a massive power up when transformed; he's strong enough to catch and carry a crashing sky-tram with little effort and grapple with large foes much larger and bulkier than him, such as Taurus Fire and Yeti Blizzard. Hell, one episode had him literally ''dragging'' an unconscious Yeti Blizzard (who had grabbed on to his leg) all the way across the city to the park. Of course, since the show focused on the usage of Battle Cards, this wasn't really shown much.
* SwissArmyAppendage: The Mega Arm, which transforms Omega-Xis' head (or his own arm in the third game) into every weapon in the game.
* SwissArmyHero: Mega Man can adopt all sorts of strategies depending on his Battle Card selection and given Super Mode.
* {{Synchronization}}: Using the Ace and Joker programs allows him to do this with Noise.
* TransformationIsAFreeAction: Justified in the games, most of the time, as Geo transforms before he meets the baddies by necessity due to the Wave World being different from the Real World. The anime and the SuperMode transformations play this straight.
* TransformationSequence: To replace the Jack In sequences from Battle Network. The Star Breaks, Tribe Ons, and Finalizations have their own sequences, too.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: It's rather surprising how many people miss seeing Mega's head sitting there on Geo's arm.
* VictorGainsLosersPowers: As with VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork, most [[PowersAsPrograms Battle Cards]] will be usable instances of enemy attacks. When [=Mega Man=] starts using the Noise Forms, he gains access to powers based on the FM-ians (save Harp Note, who would apparently be redundant after Cygnus and Libra). The Star Force also imbues [=Mega Man=] with powers based on the Satellite Admins; fighting is involved, though it's established as a test for Geo and Mega.
* WeakButSkilled: Mega Man on his own doesn't have any of the other FM-ian's natural powers or their ability to jump up in power, so he uses Battle Card strategy and self-customization through Abilities. This is even more seen in the anime, as Mega Man's small form can easily stand toe-to-toe with the other wave aliens due to the use of battle cards and cunning strategies.

-->Transer: Leo (Anime)

5-A's one-and-only ClassRepresentative, Luna practically radiates ambition, and, more importantly, knows how to achieve hers. In the long term, she seeks to become the next StudentCouncilPresident, but to do that, she's going to need a fair bit of the public eye; and what better way to do that than to associate her person and achievements with the talk of the school, [[FamedInStory the mysterious phantom student]], Geo Stelar? And so, of course, she decides to get Geo back to school, much to his chagrin. ('''Rule Number 1:''' ''Do not try to out-stubborn Luna''). Note the ironic contrast with the [[LoveAtFirstSight instant crush]] she gets on Mega Man when he first saves her life early in the story.

Eventually, she succeeds, at which point we find out that there's a lot more to her than meets the eye. While fairly abrasive towards Geo[[hottip:*:Who probably needs more of a kick in the pants than most]], she's actually very concerned with the well-being of her classmates and is even prone to the odd act of kindness. However, she's also burdened by the heavy expectations of her rich and industrial parents, which reaches a breaking point late in the first game when she overhears them planning to transfer her to an out-of-town school (they've been hearing rumors of her involvement in the strange incidents around Echo Ridge).

* TheAce: She has a closet literally ''filled'' with shelf upon shelf of trophies, including some for piano competitions. She may possibly also be skilled at fencing. There's a second cabinet full of trophies in the hallway near the door and the largest is displayed in the family room.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: She flirts with the role a couple of times in the anime; she drags the boys along to go "research" a haunted amusement park, though Geo [[NotSoAboveItAll suggests she's more interested in the rumors of abandoned treasure]]. She recycles her safari outfit for a trip to Nansca, though she doesn't have the opportunity to explore the local ruins; she's busy trying to keep from being sacrificed.
* AlphaBitch: From Geo's (and her detractors') perspective. She's closer to a School Idol, but the audience's initial interactions with her involve her harassing the protagonist.
** LovableAlphaBitch: During and after the Ophiuca chapter in the first game.
* AngerBornOfWorry: A lot of her outbursts of anger, are really this.
* AnimalMotifs: Rabbits since her hair is supposed to evoke rabbit ears. [[spoiler: And briefly snakes when she is possessed by Ophiuchus and turned into Queen Ophiuca due to her serpentine, lamia-like appearance]].
* AnimeHair: Her supercurls are a mix of RegalRinglets and MegaTwintails.
* ApocalypseMaiden: Played with in the anime. Cancer Bubble mistakenly ''thinks'' she's one after hearing Kizamaro complain about her once and spends an mini-arc [[HilarityEnsues doing everything he can to piss her off]] and unleash her world-shattering anger.
%%* AscendedExtra: Promotional art for the third game played up Luna's significance.
* BadassNormal: Approaching a crazed Jack Corvus on the roof and attempting to talk him down? Yeah, this trope.
* TheBeautifulElite: Is the richest and most fashionable out of all of Geo's associates. Examining the things in her condominium will usually result in Geo noting how much more expensive and higher-quality everything is.
%%* BettyAndVeronica: Mostly a Veronica. There's some zig-zagging, considering that Luna is both high-class and Geo's girl from down the lane.
* BigEater: Not as often as Bud or Sonia, but she insists on being allowed to pig-out until she feels better if neglected during the BeachEpisode in ''Star Force 3''.
* BigFancyHouse: She has one in the anime (complete with [[SpearCounterpart Butler]] [[MaidCorps Corps]]). In the games she only lives in a condominium with her parents, though they do own a whole department store, mind you.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Rarely: she knows how to play hardball, but she backs off around teachers. This diminishes with time.
* BitingTheHandkerchief: In the anime, Luna actually manages to tear one apart with her teeth after she sees Harp Note being friendly with Mega Man.
%%* BrokenBird: She hides it well beneath all that ambition, but it's there.
* CallingTheOldManOut: Deconstructed. Luna's decision to finally say "no" to her parents [[spoiler:happens when she's hopped up on Ophiuca's power and]] mortally threatens their lives.
* CameraFiend: In the anime, Luna can use her Transer as a camera. Later, we see she has a host of pictures of Mega Man, that she seems to have taken with it.
* CantCatchUp: Luna sometimes regrets her inability to fight alongside Mega Man like Harp Note can.
* CharacterDevelopment: She has some growth in both mediums. In the Tribe anime, she has more obvious ''dere'' moments.
* ClassRepresentative: And she's absolutely hell-bent on being elected StudentCouncilPresident. Winning the election is her primary motivation for doing anything for the first half of both the first and third games, and is the reason she goes after Geo at the start of the series (it would look very good for her she could demonstrate she was responsible for making sure all of her class was present, including a certain [[TheHero bad egg]]). So important is this to her character that [=TvTropes=] recognizes her as the Goddess of Class Representatives.
* ClingyJealousGirl: In the early anime whenever Harp Note's around, she gets possessive and jealous, often demanding to know why she's there. She gets over it. Mostly.
* CoolBigSis: To most of the students in her class; in the anime, she goes out of her way to integrate and secure Geo into school life, like introducing him to the planetarium. She does it again in the Tribe anime for the other students in her art class.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: If hazel eyes and blonde hair counts.
* CryCute: She gets teary when the bento she makes for Mega Man in the anime gets ruined during an FM-ian attack.
* DamselInDistress: Plenty of the time. [[spoiler:Even when she's NotQuiteDead]].
%%* DefrostingIceQueen: Tsundere variant: over the course of the series and anime, she transitions from being generally tsun to being generally dere (especially in the Tribe anime).
* DesignatedVictim: You'll be surprised how many times she gets in danger in all three games... And how many times she gets kidnapped in the second. Luna's significance is played up in the promotional art for the third game, and, well, see below.
* DisneyDeath: More than likely. Luna is the [[spoiler:second victim of Joker's Dread Lazer attack, which is given a "Hit" animation that's highly evocative of the classic Robot Master defeat sequences.[[note]]The individual explodes into an array of light.[[/note]] However, while Geo is at first stunned enough to let the villains escape, he later refuses to acknowledge even the ''possibility'' of Luna being gone, despite Sonia's, Bud's, and Zack's grief. Later on, it turns out Geo was right, and part of the game is spent reclaiming her fragments, and hoping that [=WAXA=] (which estimates a 30% success chance with their current technology) can put her back together again. They do, of course]].
* DontSaySuchStupidThings: She tells Geo off for saying its a shame that Mega Man's really just a kid like him in the third game.
* EducationMama: After being involved in several FM-ian incidents, her parents believe that her friends are only dragging her down and wanted to transfer her to another school. The stress of this combines with her jealousy of Geo and Sonia's relationship allow Ophiuchus to control her.
* EgocentricTeamNaming: Luna 4 Prez!! (Luna-Luna Dan!!)
* TheEmpath: A little. Luna has a strong intuition about her close friends, though she writes it off as something all Brothers can do.
* EverythingsBetterWithBunnies: She was clearly thinking this when she got Vogue.
* ExiledToTheCouch: After seeing the boys getting to know Amy (and assuming Geo has romantic interests in her), she orders Geo to sleep on the couch in the suite. Now, there are only ''three'' beds in the suite for the four guests, so one wonders what the arrangement would've been if Geo hadn't been exiled.
* {{Expy}}: She is the Yai of the ''Star Force'' series with the addition of having feelings for the protagonist.
* {{Fangirl}}: Mega Man's first; she's also one for the idol Misora in the anime. (Don't ask her [[LovesMyAlterEgo about Geo]]. [[{{Tsundere}} Just don't]]).
* FeminineWomenCanCook: The anime incident was spurred on by a daily televised poll for "Most Desirable Women". The next time she catches it, the results indicate a "Woman Who Can Clean House", so Luna ends up ''kicking Geo out of his own room'' so she can clean it. [[{{Troll}} Akane]] likes it when there's more noise in the house.
* FirstNameBasis: With Gonta and Kizamaro in the Japanese.
* {{Flanderization}}: Most of her characterization is stripped away in the anime, leaving her with two major traits: aggression and fangirlism. She gets some [[{{Tsundere}} Dere]] back in ''Tribe'', after her Mega Man shock has worn off.
* FreeRangeChildren: Luna plays this straighter than Geo does, since she taps into her family's wealth every now and again.
%%* FriendToAllChildren: In the anime. Geo's a special case.
* GenreBlind: The girl fails to draw the more obvious connections between [=Mega Man=] and Geo, which, to be fair, almost everyone is guilty of. It's a point with Luna, who has the most contact with him (both of him) of any civillian. One could geneously argue that she ignores the obvious connections while observing the decreasing personality disconnect between Geo and Mega Man.
* GiftedlyBad: She tries, she really does. But ''do not'' put her in charge of anything that requires creative talent. She's an ace piano player, not a playwright.
%%* GirlInTheTower: Almost. Girl ''atop'' the tower, when she's first kidnapped by Phantom Black.
%%* GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies: In the second game.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Has a frog "stuffie" in the games, and an [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies assorted collection of large plush]] in the anime.
* GiverOfLameNames: Not only was "Luna 4 Prez" the best team name she could come up with after staying up all night thinking of one, but she named Zack's pet "Catnip". His pet ''dog''.
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: In the anime, when she goes on her rules rampage.
* TheGlomp: She gets in a flying tackle on her Mega Man in the anime.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: As Queen Ophiuca, to contrast with Harp Note.
* GratuitousEnglish: Her rules rampage in the original Japanese (Ophiuca's debut arc) has her slinging English referee calls around, like "Offsides!" and "Out of bounds!"
* GuileHero: Luna is the most politically minded of her trio, and does successfully trick one or two people over the course of the series... including the protagonist.
* HairDecs: Wears a thin red ribbon tied up in a bow behind her head, between her curls.
%%* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: After she and Geo start getting along.
* HotBlooded: In one of the earliest episodes of the anime, Luna gets herself psyched up to get Geo to school. Of course, it doesn't help her in the slightest, as Omega-Xis spent the entire night previous demanding to go to Geo's school, and so a sleep-deprived Geo ended up going to school regardless of her efforts and intention.
-->Luna (On his doorstop): ''"Prepare yourself, Geo Stelar! Today is the day you ''will'' go to school; I'm gonna make sure of it!"''
-->Luna (As he walks by, exhausted and oblivious): ''"Uh... Uh... AH?!"''
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Not that she'll ever admit it.
* IdolSinger: Not part of the series proper, but Luna, [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Roll]], and Mayl were all gathered into an Idol Singer group as part of a promotion... launched on ''April 1'', 2012.
* ImprobableHairstyle: Luna's perfectly set "supercurls". Lifetime Achievement Award for this girl, right here.
* IncrediblyLamePun: In the anime's dub, when she takes Geo on a tour of the school's new facilities. It's not even remotely a good try.
-->"First the new Observatory and the Planetarium. It's Planeterrific!"
* ItsAllAboutMe: Her wanting Geo to go back to school may look like it seems she cares about the welfare of her classmates, its more about improving her imagea and for him to play the role of a tree in her upcoming play.
* ItWasAGift: Luna's handkerchief was a gift from her mother after their reconciliation, so she's naturally freaked when someone steals it at Alohaha.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Obnoxious, bossy, and bratty, but ultimately a kind soul once you get to know her.
* KirkSummation: Tries this on [[AxCrazy Jack Corvus]] in the third game. It doesn't work -- the alien half of the monster tells her that [[ShutUpKirk his host just wants to destroy stuff]]. [[DoubleSubverted And then Jack snaps at Corvus, yelling about how he hates being ordered around]].
* LastNameBasis: With Subaru, er, "Hoshikawa-kun" in the Japanese.
* TheLeader: Make no mistake, Geo's a part of ''Luna's'' posse, not the other way around.
* LethalChef: In the anime, Luna's attempts to learn how to cook are plagued with failures. Her cooking compromises the head butler and then her own stomach, and even after she's convinced Hope to teach her, Geo gets to experience the rocky road to Mega Man.
* LettingHerHairDown: Well, keeping it up would be kind of silly for sleeping.
* LonelyDollGirl: Luna cuddles up to her plush animals in the anime when she comes home to a [[ParentalNeglect parentless]] house during the Ophiuchus arc; in the first game, she has a frog stuffie in her dresser.
* LovesMyAlterEgo: [[InvokedTrope Damn straight]]. To justify her position, she asserts that Geo and Mega Man are distinct individuals. No, no she doesn't believe it, either, deep down. It gets kind of silly in the anime, where no one bothers to question Geo when he explains that Bud has become Taurus Fire directly to Luna's face.
* LovingAShadow: Luna's idealized Mega Man, so much so that she willfully refuses to so much as consider Geo as his alter-ego.
* LuminescentBlush: When Mega Man is involved.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: "Are you Geo Stelar? Excellent! Come to school!" She's assertive, expressive, and insists on dragging Geo out of his shell. Mind you, her pursuit of the boy is actually ''justified'' -- it's a political gambit for her approval rating; frankly, she doesn't think much of him at all in the beginning.
* MegaTwintails:
** Her trademark hairstyle is a pair of supercurls dangling behind her, which are at the very least the [[UpToEleven largest non-parody]] of Drill Hair in any medium, if not strictly OjouRinglets. In the anime, she is shown with [[RapunzelHair her hair down]] while sleeping.
** The Mega Man Wiki claims her supercurls are meant to evoke rabbit ears. Combining that [[MeaningfulName with her name]] and with her Wizard, Mode, begins to suggest the [[MoonRabbit Jade Rabbit]] myth. This actually gets highlighted by the Idol Singer costume she had in the April Fool's joke mentioned above, in which she gets the costume with a cotton-tail.
* {{Meganekko}}: While it's never touched on by the games, the anime reveals Luna wears contacts; Luna in glasses specifically was only ever featured as a piece of art by one of the anime's art directors. [[ However]], almost a decade after the series' conclusion, Luna in glasses has some official Rocmman Unity art.
* MugglePower: During the attack at [[BeachEpisode Alohaha]], things get bad enough that Luna comes to find [=MegaMan=] for advice on what to do. The act of deferring her judgment to another ''sets Joker off''.
* NoblewomansLaugh: She lets one out when she's given the designation of honor at the village of Nansca's ceremony.
* {{Ojou}}: Rich, proper, born into wealth? Yup.
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: In the anime her stockings are straight up baby blue. In the games, they're a darker blue with a light yellow spiral pattern.
%%* PullARabbitOutOfMyHat: This is [[ Vogue]]'s basic design.
* {{Protectorate}}:
** Luna, given [[DesignatedVictim who and what she is]], earns enough of Geo's focus that he invests in her the vow of his protection, which allows him to tap into the Star Force in ''Star Force 1''.
** In ''Star Force 2'', she reciprocates by giving him a CooldownHug during an episode of PowerIncontinence, and it is their [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 developed relationship]] (and the resulting jump in their shared [[ThePowerOfFriendship Link Power]]) that allows him to conquer the [=OOPArt=].
* RapunzelHair: In the anime, we learn that she sleeps with her hair down. This results in a giant mass of hair down to her calves.
* RedOniBlueOni: The haughty Tsundere to Sonia's sweetheart GenkiGirl. Luna has associations with the colors blue and purple to Sonia's pink.
* RichBitch: Again, a common interpretation of her behavior by her detractors; in the games, she maintains her snippy ''tsun'' aspects more than her anime incarnation. The ''dere'' doesn't come out until the situation is serious.
%%* TheRival: To Sonia.
* SchoolIdol: Possibly. The class holds her in relatively high esteem, and Bud and Zack most of all.
* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: Her outfit has all the trappings of a school uniform (suit-like skirt, padded shoulders, stiff collar, badge), but she's the only one who wears anything of the like.
* SmittenTeenageGirl: Preteen, technically, but her infatuation with the local superhero is second to none.
%%* {{Socialite}}: Vogue's meant to help her with this.
* SourOutsideSadInside: She's cynical and manipulative enough to qualify for the Sour Outside part, and nobody doubts the Sad Inside after the Ophiuchus Chapter. This might've shown better if we got more of her general activity rather than her fangirling over Mega Man.
* StudentCouncilPresident: She pursues Geo initially to score major student body politic points for the upcoming election. [[spoiler:She wins and becomes one in the third game]]. Strangely, nothing much really comes of this.
* TeamChef: After her DayInTheLimelight in the anime. She graduates from LethalChef to swatting Geo's hands away when he tries to steal the muffins she bakes in his kitchen.
* TeamMom: The end of her introductory scene in the second game sees her fussing over Geo's, Bud's, and Zack's health and welfare. Judging from their tolerant responses, it would seem this is pretty routine.
* ThroughHisStomach:
** Late in the first season of the anime, she spends her portion of a shared DayInTheLimelight learning how to cook -- for [[LovesMyAlterEgo Mega Man]], from [[CoolBigSis Akane]], and [[HilarityEnsues using Geo]].
** Her job in the post-game of ''Star Force 2'' is an attempt to try and cooking a pastry. Geo, [[OutOfCharacterMoment for once eager]] [[ShipTease to assist someone]], cheerfully gathers ingredients from ''around the world'' for her -- actually going so far as to invert their usual dynamic and making her demand he [[UnwantedAssistance Stop Helping Her]].
* TooDumbToLive: She's been known to linger around battle sites to watch Mega Man go rather than get herself out there, though if things get dire enough, she'll abandon ship, too; at one point in the anime, exploits this: she wants to find Mega Man, and Mega Man only shows up to fight off the FM-ians, so she'll go to the highest point in the city and look around for signs of FM-ians causing trouble so she can get there faster.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl:
** Luna's the Girly Girl to Sonia's Tomboy, though don't assume she won't be aggressive.
** Luna's generally more reserved than Sonia, such as when comparing [[BeachEpisode swimsuit choices]] -- Luna favors one-pieces to Sonia's bikinis.
* TouchedByVorlons: Ophiuchus makes and offer to Luna (giving her the power to avoid being transferred in the games, and being able to see Mega Man in the anime) if she Wave Changed with her. [[spoiler:She accepts in both cases and is turned into Queen Ophiuca for it. In the second game, she is forcibly turned back into Queen Ophiuca because she was host to an [=FMian=].
%%* TriangRelations: With Geo and Sonia.
* TrueBlueFemininity: To contrast Sonia's PinkMeansFeminine, she almost always wears a blue uniform while remaining into stereotypically girly things like plushies.
* {{Tsundere}}:
** Type A, though Geo (and the audience) don't get to see her sweet side until he really gets to know her. It exists, mind you; that sweet side is why Bud is so loyal to her. In the anime, she eventually transitions into Type B (sweet for everyone except Geo).
** In fact, in the first game, she outright states that she may act stuck up most of the time, but only because she's lonely and she really wants true friends.
* UnclePennybags: She will often take advantage of her wealth for her friends' benefit. In the third game, she's willing to help get the Science Club by buying a Giga Energy Card for their rocket, but Geo and Zack immediately talk her down by pointing out it would look like a huge bribe, not something she wants on the record of her rise to power.
%%* VitriolicBestBuds: With Sonia in the anime.
%%* WellDoneSonGuy: In the first game.
%%* WithFriendsLikeThese: Again, Sonia in the anime.

[[folder: Bud Bison]]
!!Bud Bison ''(Gonta Ushijima)''
[[caption-width-right:250:''"The Class President gave an order, so just come along quietly!"'']]
-->Transer: Dragon (Anime)
-->Wizard: [[spoiler:Taurus]]
-->EM Human: Taurus Fire
-->[[spoiler:Trans-Code]]: [[spoiler:005]]

The first of Luna's two main subordinates, and, eventually, one of Geo's friends. While Luna's extra muscle comes across like a tough guy (which, to be fair, he is), he also nurtures a hidden, softer side and enjoys being with his friends almost as much as a good meal. After getting scolded harshly by Luna for messing up her efforts to get Geo to come to school, his loneliness reveals him to the invading FM-ian Taurus in the first game. Taurus' influence remains with Bud the whole series [[spoiler:and they become a team in the third game]]. [[spoiler:To avoid immediate spoilers, Taurus is listed under the [=FM-ians=] section on the Pegasus, Leo, Dragon sheet]].

* ActionHero: [[spoiler: In the third game]].
* {{Adorkable}}: Amy Gelande might think so.
* AlliterativeName: Bud Bison.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: His hugeness set him apart as a child. Luna was the first to reach out to him, which is what set his loyalty to her in stone.
* AnimalMotifs: Cattle.
* AscendedExtra: He has a much more prominent role in the third game.
* BeastAndBeauty: This kid has been known to spontaneously transform into a raging, fire-breathing minotaur. He has a love interest.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: You better make ''darn'' sure you be respectful around Luna, or Bud will be very, ''very'' upset with you.
* BigDumbBody: As Taurus' host, his chief merit is size and availability.
* BigEater: This boy loves himself some food. In fact, this is one of his chief distinguishing characteristics when compared to Dex, whose niche he otherwise fulfills. In case you don't do subtlety, his ''family crest'' is a crossed fork and knife.
** This is [[JustifiedTrope reinforced]] in the third game, [[spoiler:when he starts fueling his Taurus Fire form with the food he eats]].
* TheBigGuy: To Zack's TheSmartGuy.
* BoisterousBruiser: Bud likes being loud.
* BookDumb: [[SarcasmMode Just a little]]. During Libra's chapter, the Study Wave pushes everyone through some aspect of education; Geo and Bud work on their multiplication tables; by the time Geo gets to his threes, Bud's looping through his ones at lightspeed. Repeatedly.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: Looks like a big thug, but he's really a big teddy bear.
* BullfightBoss: First boss of the series is Bud as Taurus Fire.
* BullSeeingRed: After Bud meets Taurus, objects around town that are colored red are often found destroyed the following morning.
* ChainOfPeople: In the anime, Bud and Zack try to rescue Luna from a dangling out of a damaged sky-tram during Mega Man's premiere arc; it's this when Bud seizes Zack by the back of his shirt and almosts throws him forward to reach Luna.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Averted in the anime. He's strong enough to carry Luna around on his back, but even then that's a bit of a stretch for him. (And commenting on it will earn him a slap).
* CoolHat: What would you even call that thing? A skullcap?
* DarkAndTroubledPast: When Bud was younger, he scared all the kids around him for being so darn big, which left him absolutely miserable - and then Luna found him and took him under her wing, earning his loyalty. When his unthinking overenthusiasm leads Luna to threathen to cut ties with him, the results aren't pretty.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: Bud fears this outcome in the second game when he takes a particular liking to the starlet of Grizzly Peaks hotel, Amy Gelande, and then realizes he had just been very rude to her father, who also happens to own the hotel. [[spoiler:Don't worry, it turned out fine]].
* DisappearedDad: He refers to his mother at least once, but never his father.
* DistressedDude: If he's a victim alongside Luna.
* DumbMuscle: Not... not a bright kid. Strong as an ox, though, if you haven't gathered as much so far.
* {{Expy}}: Of Dex from ''Battle Network'', but, unlike him, Bud wasn't DemotedToExtra in later games. Also, Bud is much nicer when compared to the SmallNameBigEgo Dex.
* FanBoy: To several of the game-significant women. He is ''intensely'' loyal to Luna (see Hidden Depths below), but Zack once convinces him to ditch one of her meetings (which promises to go an extra-long due to her being in a particularly foul mood) so they can go get psyched up for a local Sonia Strumm concert. He also develops a fondness for Amy Gelande in the second game.
* GentleGiant: Bud's a nice kid, honest he is. Unless, of course, [[BerserkButton you show disrespect to Luna]], who was one of the best things to ever happen to him.
* [[AGodAmI A God Is He]]: The Shaman of Whazzap exploits Bud's [[EasyAmnesia amnesia]] and declares him the prophet of Mu to unify his people, which will allow him to further direct them into prosperity. This backfires rather fiercely when (one) Geo and the gang show up, trying to claim him, and (two) Solo appears soon after, trying to kill him.
-->'''Solo:''' [[BerserkButton Who is this fraud who speaks of Mu?]]
* HenshinHero: [[spoiler: In the third game.]] Before then, it was really rather unintentional.
* HeroicBSOD: After the BeachEpisode in the third game.
* HiddenDepths: Bud's surprisingly emotional at times. Incredible social talent and skill at cooking being just two of them.
** EmotionalBruiser: [[spoiler: When he gets the ability to Wave Change]].
* InterspeciesFriendship: [[spoiler:With Taurus in the third game]].
* InvisibleParents: He mentions his mother once in the first game, explaining they have a pre-scheduled outing and so he can't hang out with Luna.
* IWillProtectHer: In the second game, when Yeti Blizzard tampers with the weather control system and injures Amy Gelande, he rushes to her rescue. Doesn't work, but he gets an A for effort. In the third game, [[spoiler: he quits the Satella Police so he could protect Luna and Zack.]]
* JumpedAtTheCall: In the third game, when [[spoiler: Taurus becomes his Wizard]], he joins the Satella police. [[spoiler: He eventually quits so he could protect Luna and Zack]].
* MadeOfIron: Subverted in the manga. When trying to keep some bullies from attacking a puppy, he takes a baseball bat ''to the skull'', keeps standing despite all the blood, and grins. Later in the day the bullies' big brother shows up and drops him with a hit from three bats at once, using him as a chair while his little brothers go back to their animal abusing pastime. In his desperation for more power, [[FromBadToWorse Taurus appears before him]].
* NeverBareheaded: Always wears that strange cap.
* RealMenWearPink: Possibly; there's a piece of concept art of Bud taking a moment to tend to a bird... [[TheKlutz while sitting down and knocking over a flowerpot]]. Doesn't outright contradict anything we know already.
* SecretKeeper: As one of Geo's Brothers, he's this.
* ShirtlessScene: During the BeachEpisode in the third game, he apparently decides to go native and strips all the way down to a {{Fundoshi}}. He even carries around a spear.
* SidekickGlassCeiling: [[spoiler: In the third game, for the same reasons as Sonia.]]
* SleevesAreForWimps: His outfit doesn't have sleeves.
* StoutStrength: Quite strong for his age.
* TastesLikeFriendship: Gonta's love of food translates directly into his optimal form of bonding with other people.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:He secretly trains with Ace, primarily so he could pull off a Big Damn Heroes at some point and blow everyone away]].
* TouchedByVorlons: The very first, after Geo. Even afterwards, there's a substantial deposit of Taurus' remains inhabiting his body, which causes problems every now and then. Comes to a head in the third game, where [[spoiler: Taurus does a HeelFaceTurn and becomes Bud's Wizard.]]
* {{Youkai}}: He has a Daruma doll in his room in the first game.

[[folder: Zack Temple]]
!!Zack Temple''(Kizamaro Saishouin)''
[[caption-width-right:250:''"I must tell this to the Prez!"'']]
-->Transer: Pegasus (Anime)
-->Wizard: Pedia

The second of Luna's two main subordinates, and, eventually, one of Geo's friends. Zack is Luna's extra brain, helping to organize her schedule and to develop her plans; in fact, it was on Zack's suggestion that Luna began hunting Geo down. Small and eager, Zack is usually the first of the group to seize onto a new idea and goes to great lengths to convince Luna the idea is worthwhile, though this is often Hit-Or-Miss for him. In keeping with his status, Zack also owns a miniature database called the Zackpedia, which is adminstered by his Wizard Pedia.

Behind closed doors, he laments his inability to be of any particular use to [=Mega Man=] after they become friends, since he can't offer emotional support like Luna or supply physical muscle like Bud. To his credit, however, his capacity for research is second to none; Geo's taken care of several serious threats based on information he's received from Zack.

* {{Adorkable}}: At times. Especially concerning Sonia and Luna.
* AerithAndBob: How many ''Kizamaro''es do we have running around in anime- and video game-dom, anyway?
* AgentScully: Briefly seen doubting about Mega Man in the early first game, as his memories of the incidents are always sketchy. This is dropped later on.
* BlindWithoutEm: Suggested during the BeachEpisode in the third game with the way his eyes pinch up.
* BrainySpecs: Wears glasses and is the brains of the group.
* CantCatchUp: Zack was never anointed by any of the FM-ians, which means he's been locked out of the EM Human loop; he hides problems about being out of his depth. Heck, even [[spoiler:Bud]] leaves him behind for a time.
* ChainOfPeople: In the anime, Bud and Zack try to rescue Luna from a dangling out of a damaged sky-tram; it's this when Bud seizes Zack by the back of his shirt and hoists him forward to reach Luna.
* DistressedDude: If he's a victim alongside Luna and Bud.
* EverythingsBetterWithPlushies: There's a plush rabbit doll under his covers in the first game (on the landing in his room where he sleeps where no one can see it). It's unknown whether this has any relation to Luna's rabbit motif.
* {{Expy}}: Zack could easily be mistaken for a prepubescent Higsby.
* FanBoy: Both he and Bud are extremely loyal to Luna. And Sonia. (This causes them some trouble every once in a while).
* FreeRangeChildren: In the second game, Luna manages to take him with her to Whazzap. (Bud doesn't count since he doesn't leave the country of his own volition).
* HeroicBSOD: After the BeachEpisode in the third game.
* HiddenDepths: See CantCatchUp above. Also, he laments his inability to do anything useful for Mega Man at the end of the first game.
* HollywoodNerd: So, so much.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Especially in the second game. After being sent to Netopia and finding the possible existence of the Loch Mess, Zack refuses to go back with his friends as he wanted to have something he can brag about when compared to his friends (two of them are superheroes, one of them a student class president and another a big, tough guy).
** A Hertz in his room reveals that he and Pedia practice EM Wave Change poses in the mirror, though he never makes a huge issue of it.
* InsufferableGenius: Early on he could be infuriatingly this, when it overlaps with a certain lack of social skills. He gets better.
* InvisibleParents: His parents are never mentioned.
* LackOfEmpathy: Hints of it in the anime; when he first meets Geo, he [[NoSocialSkills immediately starts discussing]] how Kelvin was lost in the space station accident, which [[SarcasmMode greatly endeared him to Geo]].
* MagicalComputer: Pedia, Zack's Wizard, and by extension, the Zackpedia.
* MeaningfulName: Zack is a common shortened form of the Hebrew language (Southwest Asia) name Zechariah, which means "God has remembered". Temple may refer to the part of the head directly in front of the temporal cortex.
* NerdGlasses: He has a collection of them on his shelf.
* NonActionGuy: Due to being unable to Wave Change and having no physical skills otherwise. He's really bummed about this.
* {{Otaku}}: Especially in the anime.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: In the anime.
* SecretKeeper: As one of Geo's Brothers, he's this.
* ShipperOnDeck: In the anime, he happens across what he believes to be Luna and Gonta on a date, which, after Luna's and Gonta's loud argument in the classroom that morning, fills his head with thoughts of [[BelligerentSexualTension sexual tension]]. He spends the next episode trying to get Geo to help him set their ship's sail, only to discover he'd encountered [[OhCrap Taurus and Ophiuchus in disguise]].
* ShirtlessScene: During the BeachEpisode.
* TheShortGuyWithGlasses: Wears glasses, is the shortest member of the main cast, and is the brains of the group.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: The shortest one in the group and the smartest one.
* TheSmartGuy: To Bud's TheBigGuy. His Wizard, Pedia (as in Encyclopedia) is either the admin, holder, or the embodiment of the Zackpedia, which is Zack's information database, [[OmniscientDatabase that has entries on nearly everything]].
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: To go with his stereotypical nerd image.
* TheSneakyGuy: In the first game, he overhears some information on Geo's plans that he immediately feeds to Luna.[[note]]He's not exactly stalking Geo, as the conversation he eavesdrops on happens to be around the corner from his own home.[[/note]]
* SnoopingLittleKid: Acts as Luna's spy in the first game.
* SpockSpeak: Well-spoken at all times.
* TeamNormal: He and Luna are the only one with no powers.
* ThemeNaming: His last name (Temple) may refer to the temple, the portion of the head's anatomy directly before the temporal cortex.
* TouchedByVorlons: Subverted, as he is the only one of the kids that doesn't interact with any FM-ian. He does get a wizard like the other four, though.

[[folder: Sonia Strumm/Skye]]
!!Sonia Strumm/Skye ''(Misora Hibiki)''
[[caption-width-right:200:''"The manager is a butthead! The music producer is a fried octopus ball! '''''Songs come from the heart!'''''"'']]
-->Wave Scanner: Leo (Anime)
-->Wizard: Lyra
-->EM Human: Harp/Lyra Note
-->Trans-Code: 004

This young lady is something of a celebrity, an IdolSinger, in fact. Introduced in the first game, Sonia became a singer in order to make her mother happy, but after her mother died, her manager began using her success for his own financial gain. Her depression is what called Lyra to her, and after being defeated they both become allies. Like Geo, Sonia can't have her mind controlled by Lyra and so relies in her own fighting strength during battles. Together they become Harp Note. [[spoiler:She is the first person Geo forms a brotherband with.]]

Note: Tropes specifically about Lyra, or about Harp Note's ''form and abilities'' are under Lyra's section below.

* ActionGirl: Mega Man's chief ally.
* ActionHero: Once Lyra performs a HeelFaceTurn.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: While it is unknown whether or not Sonia loss her mother in the anime, she is much more hot blooded than in the game and tends to get angry at even the most minute things. Furthermore, while she wanted to quit her idol career in the first game after being exploited by her manager, she has no problem working with him in the anime though she doesn't like the way he do things.
* AlliterativeName: Sonia Strumm
* BadassBoast: To Gemini Spark in the anime.
-->'''Gemini Spark (White)''': We'll kill you too if you try to get in our way.
-->'''Harp Note''': I'd like to see you try.
* BareYourMidriff: One of Misora's concert outfits from the anime uses this.
* BattleCouple: Not as much in the games (though she and Geo do go on a date or two), but the anime provides a few moments here and there, highlighting them by having Luna assume this trope.
* [[BettyAndVeronica Betty]]: Mostly. There's some zigzagging, considering that Sonia is both sweet and friendly and an nationally famous singing sensation.
* BirdsOfAFeather: She and Geo bonded over the loss of their parent and the loneliness that they face after that.
* BigDamnHeroes: As Harp Note, and especially in the anime.
-->''"Harp Note, dropping in!"''
* BigEater: Sonia can pack it away on the same level as Bud when she wants to. This does absolutely nothing to her figure.
** You can see it during her date with Geo in the second game and if you neglect to take her path in the DatingSim BeachEpisode in the third game.
* BondingOverMissingParents: Geo's hasn't had a dad for a few years, Misora's recently lost her mom. This happens.
* CardsOfPower: She uses Battle Cards in the anime.
* CatchPhrase: In the anime, she announces her appearances as Harp Note with a cry of, "Harp Note, dropping in!"
* ClarkKenting: A smidgeon in the anime; Cancer Bubble tricks Harp Note into reciting a line from Misora's tv drama, and he totally fails to make the connection from the same girl saying the same line in the same way. Directly in front of him.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Not as bad about it as anime!Luna, but Sonia's been known to be less than thrilled when Geo is either interacting with a girl that's not her or appearing to forget about her.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Even noting Sonia's mother-grief, it sure is convenient that Sonia has no one to answer to when she runs off.
* CryCute: In the first game.
* DeathByOriginStory: Sonia's mother died roughly a month or two before the first game. Her mother is never seen in the game.
* DeathGlare: At Cancer Bubble during the ninja episodes in Tribe, complete with death threat, in order to force him to do her wishes.
-->'''Sonia:''' I'll '''''decapitate''''' you.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Downplayed. She already kinda-sorta liked Geo to the point of not doing her best during their first battle, but she REALLY started to be his friend after their fight, wherein she learns of Geo's own problems that surprisingly mirror her own.
** The anime has a variant on this -- in her original antagonist role, Lyra was actually possessing Sonia, but after she loses, the prospect of going back and reporting her failures is so unappealing, Lyra tries to make nice with Sonia instead. Sonia decides to profit from this by going on adventures around the world and becoming a Henshin Hero, disappearing for half-a-dozen episodes before bailing Mega Man out of his fight with Gemini Spark on her own initiative. Sonia and Geo have no particular relationship until the end of the first anime season, only knowing each other as Mega Man and Harp Note (though Geo discerns her quite public Secret Identity).
* DynamicEntry: Usually as Harp Note.
* ElegantGothicLolita: One of her concert outfits in the anime has this look, but in bright white and pink.
* [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl Energetic Girl]]: To Geo's Savvy Guy.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Her cathartic tantrum in the anime.
* {{Expy}}:
** She takes the roles of both Mayl and Roll from Battle Network, and resembles both of them in her normal form and as Harp Note, respectively.
** As Harp Note, she also has elements of Proto Man, especialy Videogame/MegamanClassic incarnation, with her ScarfOfAssKicking, visor, and music note when she's appearing. She's also more of an ActionGirl compared to Mayl and Roll.exe. Not to mention she also started as a kind-off enemy, and [[spoiler: seemingly worked with the Neo Mu Empire, paralleling Proto Man's actions during VideoGame/MegaMan4]]
** She also shares some traits with Chaud from Battle Network, especially the part where [[spoiler:both of them has [[DudeWheresMyRespect serious trust issues]] with the protagonists in their respective series (Chaud in [=MMBN=] 1 and 2, Sonia in [=SF=] 1 and 2)]]. Both Chaud and Sonia, are also half-orphans, having lost their mothers. In the anime, Harp Note often uses Sword-based Battle Cards, similar to [=ProtoMan=].EXE.
* FakeDefector: In the second game. [[spoiler:[[SuperDickery She starts working with the Neo Mu Empire to keep them from attacking]] [=Mega Man=]... [[SuperDickery and even goes so far as to sever her Brother Band with Geo]]]].
* {{Foil}}: Sonia's perky and active, Geo's sullen and needs motivation. Post his CharacterDevelopment, Sonia's still far more outgoing than Geo is.
** RedOniBlueOni: With Luna, detailed above.
* FreeRangeChildren: Invoked in the anime; Sonia embraces her new superhero status because it will let her have adventures.
* GenkiGirl: She starts off as a deconstruction her genki personality is partially a coping mechanism until she finally addresses the reality of her situation. After that, she's pretty much non-stop buoyant and perky.
* GetBackHereBoss: In the first game, she leads you on a chase towards to Amaken when you attempt to fight her, pausing to attack you from afar.
* GreenEyes: She has emerald green eyes.
* HenshinHero: Like Mega Man.
* HeroicBSOD: After the BeachEpisode in the third game.
* HeroicHost: For Lyra.
* HeroicSacrifice: Non-fatal, but she deliberately puts herself between [=Mega Man and Rogue EX=]. She gets brutally beaten as a result.
* IdolSinger: She is one of these in the first game, but quits under her manager after meeting Geo; she begins singing again in the second game. She never retires from the role in the anime, but gives herself plenty of vacation time.
* IncomingHam: Usually as Harp Note, sometimes even with Dynamic Entry, BigDamnHeroes, or both.
* InconsistentDub: The anime's dub changed her surname to "Skye" for some reason. On the other hand, it also corrected Harp Note's name to Lyra Note to match Lyra's changed name.
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Sonia's mother, in concept art.
* ItWasAGift: Sonia's bag that was stolen at the beach. She got it from a fan, and she says it's special to her.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Another way she differs from Geo.
* KimonoFanservice: A couple of times, including one of her promotional calendar pictures dresses her up in a blue kimono.
* TheLancer: As Harp Note. Some fans like to call BattleCouple.
* LittleMissBadass: A cute girl and famous idol singer who becomes a MusicalAssassin as Harp Note.
* MegatonPunch: In the anime, at one point she *kicks* a Mett away in frustration.
* MesACrowd: At one point in the Tribe anime, she decides to ditch a television program she was a part of to go adventuring with Geo, and has Cancer cover for her. The crab alien gets his claws on Cygnus' [[spoiler:old materializing device]][[hottip:*:Used to simulate each FM-ian's original host's material so they could use EM Wave Change without a host proper]] to create a Remote-Control Sonia Puppet. Cancer does [[{{Flanderization}} a poor job of imitating Sonia's personality]], however, so when the idol comes back, she finds the puppet behaving embarassingly on stage.
* MissingMom: Mother died of illness.
* MundaneUtility: Uses her powers to get away from rabid fanboys in the third game.
* MusicalAssassin: Harp Note -- her and Lyra's combined form.
* MusicalThemeNaming: Her last name in the Japanese version (Hibiki) means echo and you first witness her form in Echo Ridge. Her first name (Misora) references the three notes from the solfege; also, her last name in the English version falls under this as well.
* NoblewomansLaugh: A character she plays on TV lets one out in the anime.
* NoodleIncident: In the anime, Misora's manager tries to rope her into performing live [[{{Fanservice}} while wearing a swimsuit]]; she adamantly refuses and vaguely mentions an incident she swore to pretend never happened.
* {{Odango}}: In one of the Misora promo wallpapers released for Star Force 2, she sported both these and a baby-blue {{Qipao}}. Also, her Gothic Lolita costume in the anime has these as well.
* OutdoorsyGal: In the anime. She does it for the inspiration.
* OddFriendship: With Luna, mixed with SchoolgirlRival and VitriolicBestBuds (especially in the anime); they're both schoolgirl age, but Sonia doesn't attend with Geo and company.
* PerkyFemaleMinion: Zig Zagged. She's usually perky, and [[spoiler:she's been a female minion]], but never both at once.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Her default outfit is yellow short shorts and a pink hoodie.
* PluckyGirl: Again Deconstructed. She seems happy and cheerful, but it's quickly revealed that it's merely a coping mechanism for her depression. Once she overcomes her issues, she is this permanently.
%%* TheRival: To Luna.
* TheRockstar: She's a famous IdolSinger.
* SailorFuku: Wears one while filming her TV show in ''3''.
%%* SecretIdentity: Harp Note's.
* SecretKeeper: As one of Geo's Brothers, she's this.
* {{Shorttank}}: To an extent. She rolls in a hoodie and short-shorts.
* ShoutOut ThemeNaming: To Hibari Misora, a famous Japanese singer.
* SidekickGlassCeiling: She's powerful, but has no Noise capabilities.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She and Lyra are the only females in the SP Commandos. (By extension, Harp Note's also the only heroic female EM Human in general).
* TheSvengali: Her manager (and possibly her guardian), Chrys Golds, has remarkably little regard for her as a person. She ditches him in the game, but sticks around with him in the anime, where he's not quite as odious.
* TenMinuteRetirement: She retires from her job as an IdolSinger shortly after her introduction in the first game. By the start of the second game (two months later in game time) she has not only returned to singing, she's also doing advertising. By the third game she's also gone into acting and doing photo shoots. Despite the escalating work load, her new (unnamed) manager presumably treats her like a person instead of a cash cow.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Sonia is the Tomboy to Luna's Girly Girl, and a fair bit friskier to prove it (all of her swimsuits in the games and official art are bikinis; ignoring her one-piece from the anime, which she refuses to be seen in, anyway).
* TooManyBelts: One of her concert outfits in the anime.
%%* TouchedByVorlons: She can Wave Change with Lyra.
* TriangRelations: With Geo and Luna. [[spoiler:During the Beach Episode, you choose whether she or Luna have an intimate moment with Geo by choosing to save either of their stuff... Or if you're feeling up for a good laugh, get ''Bud's'' stuff.]].
* UnlimitedWardrobe: She has the most costumes and outfits available to her when considering both the games themselves and all the official art.
* UselessAccessory: She uses a Leo-aligned [[MerchandiseDriven Wave Scanner]] in the anime, which is odd considering that her guitar is already wave-enabled.
* VSign: In the anime. In order to enable her to waltz off the set, Cancer ends up using Cygnus' materialization device to make a remote control copy of Misora, which he strives to make resemble the real thing to increasingly little avail. In the end, he settles for having it simply aim V-Signs at everything around it.
%%* WhoWearsShortShorts: This girl, right here.
* WildChild: More in the anime, where she takes to adventuring with Lyra whenever an opportunity presents itself.
%%* YamatoNadeshiko: Sonia's mother appears to be this, also in concept art.
* YouGoGirl: In the anime, especially with Lyra's encouragement.

[[folder: Lyra/Harp]]
!!Lyra/Harp (Note)
[[caption-width-right:350:[[labelnote:Click here to see Harp Note.]][[/labelnote]]]]

-->Partner: Sonia Strumm

* BarrierWarrior: The Harp Singer summons a Barrier in her opening appearance in the anime, but doesn't use one later.
* BrownNote: Harp Note's initial rampage in the games has her knocking people out with blasts of music. Whether it's this, a high-frequency shockwave, or a combination of both is up in the air, which in turn suggests the damage probably should have been more extensive. Say, hospital-flooding extensive.
* CoolBigSis: She serves as an older sister figure for Sonia after her HeelFaceTurn.
* CuteBruiser: Harp Note.
* DealWithTheDevil: A small one; Lyra appeared to Sonia in the anime and lured her away from her managers with the promise of relaxation. While Misora did indeed receive this, she never knew Lyra was intending to use her sleeping form to lay waste to the human world.
* GetBackHereBoss: Harp Note refuses to stick around to have some sense talked into her in the first game.
* GreenLanternRing: Somewhat in the anime: Harp Note gets some more mileage out of her Machine-Gun String attack than in the games. At one point, she creates a spiderweb-like shield with it.
* HeelFaceTurn: After Harp Note is defeated, Lyra realizes she can't return to Planet FM a failure, so she stays on Earth with Sonia.
* InASingleBound: With Mega Man in the anime.
* InconsistentDub: The games changed Harp's name to Lyra, but still referred to the EM Human form as Harp Note. The anime fixed this by standardizing Lyra Note, but the damage was already done by that point, and later games continued to call her Harp Note.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: While she does turn out to be a genuine good guy in the end her initial side switching was basically because of this. She can't forcibly control Sonia so once Geo talked sense into her, any chance of winning was gone. So her options were report failure and be punished, or stick with Sonia and let her play hero.
* LivingWeapon: Much like how Mega Man's Buster is Omega-Xis's head, Lyra becomes Harp Note's guitar.
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Harp Note is an [[IncrediblyLamePun EM-powered Girl]], one supposes.
* MagicMusic: In the anime, Harp sings a lullaby that puts an entire city to sleep.
* MusicalAssassin: Harp Note can fire musical notes, use her strings to ensnare opponents, and can fire soundwaves.
* NonElemental: Harp Note is this.
* OneHitPointWonder: In the anime, enemy Harp Note was this, since getting hit even once will wake up Sonia, and Lyra can't control her if she's awake. Which leads to her giving up since she'll never beat Megaman like that.
* OneWayVisor: This applies to Harp Note in the anime while she's under Lyra's control. Otherwise, you can see her eyes just fine.
* [[PinkGirlBlueBoy Pink Girl]]: Harp Note is this to [=Mega Man=]'s Blue Boy.
* PinkMeansFeminine: As Harp Note, to contrast with Queen Ophiuca.
* PowerDyesYourHair: Into HairOfGold.
* ThePowerOfRock: Sonia, when fused with Lyra, uses a guitar as an offensive weapon.
* PunchClockVillain: Lyra was never really on board with the whole Earth thing (too much work), and strikes a bargain after her incident that allows her to stay by Sonia's side and thus avoid punishment at the hands of her superiors.
* RedBaron: In the anime, Harp originally called her Denpa-Ningen form the Harp Singer.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: As Harp Note.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When the option presents itself, Lyra ditches the FM-ians.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Sonia and Geo.
* SixthRangerTraitor: She abandons the FM-ians for Sonia.
* StandardStatusEffects: Harp Note specializes in these. Her Shock Note projectiles cause paralysis, while Pulse Song can inflict various different ailments depending on the waves' color.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Her EM Human form can be either Lyra- or Harp Note.
* SymbolMotifClothing: Just like [=Roll.EXE=] heart patterns are prominent on her suit and attacks.
