Character names are given English version first, with Japanese version in parentheses.

[[folder:Main Characters/Heroes]]
!![=MegaMan=].EXE ''(Rockman.EXE)''
->''Voiced by Creator/AkikoKimura (JP), Creator/AndrewFrancis (EN)''

The title character and Lan's Navi. In the games, he is [[spoiler:Lan's twin brother Hub (Saito) Hikari, who died when he was an infant and was brought back to life as a Navi.]] In the anime, he possesses one of the three Ultimate Programs.

* ArmCannon: And again.
* {{Badass}}: As usual, saving the world from evil megalomaniac scientists is just another day on the Net.
** TookALevelInBadass: Throughout the games, he does a subtly increasing version. In game two, he acquires the ability to change his attacks based on his battle performance, which sticks with him throughout the third game, where he also acquires a permanently equipped (though upgradable) charge attack. By games four and five he can use Soul Unison and gains gameplay use of Full Synchro, and by the final game he drops Soul Unison for the even easier to utilize Cross Fusion system.
* BerserkButton: In volume 8 of the {{Manga}}, [[ Mega Man.EXE kills Shade Man.EXE by ripping the evil vampire navi to shreds]] for threatening to kill Lan. Of course, that was [[ the Darkloids' plan all along]] (to make him angry).
* BrainUploading: [[spoiler:His program is based on Hub, Lan's twin brother who died as a baby.]]
* CharacterTitle: The Japanese title of the anime is simply titled ''Rockman.EXE''. The games in Japan are ''Battle Network Rockman.EXE'' for the first three, and simply ''Rockman.EXE'' for the latter three.
* ChestInsignia: The stylized red H against a black background representing the Hikari family and an apparent love for soccer.
** The creators say that it's not an H, but rather an abstract symbol whose equal portions are meant to represent [[spoiler:Mega Man's relationship to Lan as his brother]]. That said, it actually evolved from an earlier design that ''was'' an H.
* CoolMask: Has a mask that covers his mouth during battle. Retracts out of battle.
* [[spoiler:DisneyDeath]]: In ''3''.
* EnemyWithout: Started with [=MegaMan=] DS in the fourth game.
* {{Expy}}: To the original Mega Man
* TheHero
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: At the end of the third game. This turns out to be a DisneyDeath in the long run.]]
** [[spoiler:He pulls several of these in the manga and it always turns out to be a DisneyDeath there too. Though it took him [[DistantFinale a year]] to come back from the last one.]]
* HoldingYourShoulderMeansInjury: Done [[ here]], though it leads to [[ArmCannon something else]].
* JapanesePronouns: "Boku"
* MessianicArchetype: It helps that he and Net belong to the Net ''Saviors'' in Axess on.
** Someone from a plane of existence not our own who comes down and becomes both [[BrainUploading fully like us and entirely like his original self]], [[spoiler: who dies to save his loved ones and is restored to life]]? [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Huh]].
* OneWayVisor: [[ Proto Soul]] has one, as does [[ Search Soul]], [[ Gyro Soul]], [[ Knight Soul]] and [[ Meddy Soul]].
* PlayerCharacter: For the internet world and in combat.
* PowerCopying: Unlike his namesake, he only got new abilities himself by defeating regular enemies or just buying battle chips for the first few games. Then came Style Change, Double Soul, and Cross.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: The basis of each of [=MegaMan's=] Double Souls is a profound moment of empathy between the two [=NetNavis=] involved. {{Averted}} with the Cross System, since the Link Navis are actually connected to ''Lan'' (and the principle involved here is Lan's own Operating skill), who links their power with Mega Man's.
* PunnyName
** Japanese: [[spoiler:Saito (彩斗) is a pun on the term "saito" (サイト), Japanese for website.]]
** English: [[spoiler:Hub is a networking term for a device that allows communication between multiple computers and networks.]]
* ReplacementGoldfish: [[spoiler: Averted. He ''is'' Hub (Saito), Lan's dead twin brother. This only applies to the games.]]
** Which is odd, seeing as how in the anime, there was an episode in which Lan was used as a basis to rebuild [=MegaMan's=] almost destroyed body.
* SiblingYinYang: With Lan. Mega Man is polite, composed, and hardworking while Lan is loud outgoing, and kinda lazy.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: [[spoiler:"Site" for his human name.]]
* {{Synchronization}}: In terms of game mechanics, Mega Man can achieve Full Synchro with Lan when he successfully counterattacks an enemy, causing the attack power of his next offensive battlechip to be doubled. In plot terms, this often grants him CutScenePowerToTheMax.
** Taken to the next level in the anime with Cross Fusion, which allows him to merge with Lan in order to fight enemies in the real world.
* SuperMode: Through the use of the ability "Full Synchro", he and Lan can combine their power to make him vastly more powerful than the average Navi in the first three games storywise, and the ability finally becomes a recurring gameplay element in the last three games of the main series. [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique However, it has the side effect of Lan himself being hurt whenever Mega Man gets hurt]].
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: In the sixth game, resulting from sealing an EldritchAbomination in his body. He also gains a variation of this in the fourth and fifth game.
** Has shades of this in the manga as Saito (Hubstyle) Rockman. He goes AxCrazy from the power until he learns to control it.
* TimeTravel: Aside from being involved with [[VideoGame/MegaManStarforce Geo]] in the BN remake, he also time travels to the future in one sidequest in Star Force.
* [[spoiler:VirtualGhost]]: [[spoiler:Is the digitized mind of Lan's brother Hub.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In the anime, Mega Man has a fear of ghosts, since they can't be explained by science.

!!Lan Hikari ''(Netto Hikari)''
->''Voiced by KumikoHiga (JP), Creator/BradSwaile (EN)''

Mega Man's operator.

* {{Badass}}: When he and Mega Man fuse together in the anime, he gets a lot of moments to be this, and in the games Lan shows an absurd amount of bravery that qualifies him for this at times.
* BigEater
* BookDumb: Heavily hinted to be BrilliantButLazy.
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:Endured a ridiculous amount of radiation in the second game to defeat Gospel and offer its leader a chance at redemption.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: [[spoiler: He formed the Brother Band system, as well as the beginnings of the EM tech that took the world by storm in VideoGame/MegaManStarForce]].
* HeavySleeper
* HotBlooded: Moreso in the anime.
* IdiotHero
* KidHero
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage
* NotAMorningPerson
* [[spoiler:OfficialCouple: With Mayl.]]
* ParrotExposition: Lan does this many times that some fans call him "[[MetalGear Solid Snake Jr.]]" It doesn't help that he has the bandanna and short spiky hair, not unlike Snake himself.
* PlayerCharacter: For the real world.
* PunnyName
** Japanese: Netto (熱斗) is a pun on "intaa'''netto'''" (インターネット), the Japanese name for the Internet (which itself often shortened to "netto").
** English: Lan is a pun on the computer term LAN (Local Area Network).
* RollerbladeGood: Not exactly the {{Badass}} kind though.
* SiblingYinYang: With Mega Man.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Net" for his Japanese name has made a few appearances.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Curry, especially tonkatsu curry rice.

!!Mayl Sakurai ''(Meiru Sakurai)''
->''Voiced by Creator/KaoriMizuhashi (JP), Creator/BrittneyWilson (EN)''

Childhood friend of Lan. She lives next door for most of the series.

* BalloonBelly: Episode 54 of {{Anime}}.
* ButNotTooForeign: She's half-Netopian.
* CherryBlossomGirl
* TheGlomp: Has a habit of doing this to Lan in the openings of the anime since Axess. Not so much in the actual show itself, but it has happened.
* HeroesWantRedHeads
* MeaningfulName: Mayl's name is a pun off of "e-mail."
* [[spoiler:OfficialCouple: With Lan.]]
* PatientChildhoodLoveInterest: Fills just about every detail right up until we get to the romance part. Then Jasmine comes into the picture, and Mayl kicks it up a notch.
* PunnyName: Her name is a pun on "e-mail" in both Japanese and English.
* RoseHairedSweetie: Mayl has pink hair, her Navi symbol has a heart motif, and she's very kind.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The English-dubbed anime calls her Maylu. "Mail" has also appeared on a few bits of Japanese media.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Roll's Girly Girl.
* {{Tsundere}}: In the anime, a type-B.
** Seems to be one in the games as well. On several occasions throughout he series, Mayl calls Lan a dummy, and on the ACDC Area BBS, she wrote:
--->'''Mayl:''' It'd be nice if he(Lan) just sent me a mail or something... But I don't really care or anything...
** Design notes in the recently translated ''Official Complete Works'' claim that Mayl was intended to be one of these in her original conception (and the concept art certainly is much less demure than her finished form), due to the creator's preference for them, though this was nixed due to the waning popularity of the {{Tsundere}} personality.
* [[spoiler:VictoriousChildhoodFriend: After trying to grab Lan's usually oblivious attention throughout most of the series, it's revealed at the end of the sixth game that both married each other in the future.]]

->''Voiced by MasakoJo (JP), Creator/LenoreZann (EN)

Operated by Mayl, and a very close friend to Mega Man by extension.

* ChestInsignia: Her insignia is filled in with a pink heart against a gold background.
* TheChick
* ClingyJealousGirl: Whereas Roll is overall friendly in the games, she had episodes of this in the anime when it came to another Navi snagging [=MegaMan's=] attention.
* DistressedDamsel: [[strike:Sometimes]] Often plays this role, being distressed at least once in games 1-3, seemed to drop the damsel ball in 4, where she TookALevelInBadass, then went right back to being distressed for ''all'' of 5, and was captured ''yet again'' in 6.
* GenkiGirl: Like her operator Roll is very energetic, particularly towards [=MegaMan=].
* HeyItsThatVoice: She has the qualities of both [[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} Rogue]] and [[Manga/OutlawStar Aisha]].
* TheMedic: Translates into her battle chips as well, which heal Mega Man.
* SymbolMotifClothing: Heart patterns are prominent in her design; namely her ChestInsignia, helmet and arrowheads.
* SummonMagic: She can summon weaker viruses to aid her in battle during the fourth game.
* TookALevelInBadass: In Battle Chip Challenge and the fourth game, she finally gets to take part in battle on-screen as a boss. And she's not as much of a joke as you might expect.
* WeaponOfChoice
** Her arrows have the ability to break all selected battlechips that have not yet been used that turn.
** WhipItGood: When she's not attacking with her bow and arrows, she teleports in front of her enemy and smacks them around with her two antennae on her head.

!!Dex Oyama ''(Dekao Oyama)''
->''Voiced by YusukeNumata (JP), TonySampson (EN)''

Another childhood friend of Lan, and a friendly rival.

* BalloonBelly
* BigBrotherInstinct: Has a younger brother, Chisao, who he is very protective of.
* BoisterousBruiser
* DefeatMeansFriendship: He was largely antagonistic to Lan in the first game until his defeat.
* GeniusBruiser: The second half of the series make the point that Dex has a talent for Shogi. Not that this becomes a viable plot point. [[InformedAbility Ever]].
* GentleGiant: Once he quits trying to act imposing, he's a sweet guy. It even shows around Chisao a lot.
* {{Gonk}}
* MoeCouplet: Any of his interactions with his little brother are epically adorable.
* TheRival

->''Voiced by YoshimitsuShimoyama (JP), Creator/ScottMcNeil (EN)''

Operated by Dex, and friendly rival to Mega Man by extension.

* AscendedExtra: A mostly one-time, if memorable and [[WeCanRebuildHim oft-recurring]], Robot Master villain from the classic series managed to become a part of the heroic main cast for ''Battle Network''.
* TheBigGuy
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In ''Network Transmission'' due to Dex applying the Zero Virus Vaccine without knowing its effects. In ''Red Sun'' [=MegaMan=]'s Dark Soul also possessed him at one point, courtesy of [=LaserMan=].
* ChestInsignia: A large green plus sign that takes up most of the insignia. The corners are outlined in black.
* DumbMuscle: While strong, [=GutsMan=] is not exactly bright.
* FunetikAksent: In the translated games, he speaks with a Southern accent.
* {{Expy}}: To the original Guts Man.
* GentleGiant
* RocketPunch: A high-level [=GutsMan=] ability, and one that you can acquire with the [=GutsStraight=] chip.
* VerbalTic: Replacing "desu" with "degatsu".

!!Yai Ayanokoji ''(Yaito Ayanokoji)''
->''Voiced by HinakoYoshino (JP), JocelyneLoewen (EN)''

A good friend of Lan, and two years younger than the rest of the crew. Her family is one of the richest in the world.

* {{Expy}}: Of [[,_Ofuton_and_Yaito a minor character named Yaito]] from ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends 2'', much like her NetNavi.
* ForeheadOfDoom: The glare off her (rather large) forehead is a running gag in the anime. She even uses it as an attack of sorts.
* GirlishPigtails
* GradeSkipper
* MaidCorps: They can be seen in montages thoroughout several episodes doing random chores ''across the city'' in the {{Anime}}.
* {{Ojou}}: Her father is the CEO of [[BlandNameProduct Gabcom]].
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Yai is not particularly skilled at Net Battle at all, but makes up for it loads of rare and expensive Battle Chips.
* SpoiledSweet: Despite coming from a rich family, she's very kind and notable for being a surprisingly 3-D Character for the role she fills, even if as a general character she may feel a bit flat. Also, although she is clearly used to being rich she is shown to be fully capable of enjoying simple things such a fish cooked over a campfire.

->''Voiced by YasuhikoKawazu (JP), TedCol (EN)''

Operated by Yai. Glyde is more of a butler Navi rather than a combat navi, and does not have much in terms of offensive capabilities. His rare and expensive battlechips sometimes makes up for that.

* BattleButler: Definitely not one of the evil kinds though.
* ChestInsignia: A red diamond and two yellow triangles that make up one large triangle. To the sides of the triangle is a black background, while the bottom is an orange background. According to Capcom, it's supposed to be a kind of burning incense.
* {{Expy}}: Of Glyde from the ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' series.
* NiceGuy: Very, very polite.
%%* TheSmartGuy
* TheUnfought: Notable for being the only non-generic ally Navi that cannot be battled in the entire series.

!!Eugene Chaud/[[Anime/MegaManNTWarrior Chaud Blaze]] ''(Enzan Ijuin)''
->''Voiced by Creator/MitsukiSaiga (JP), BillSwitzer (EN)''

A young boy that is a rising star among the Net Officials. He's also the son of the President of ICP, the company that creates the [=PETs=] everyone uses. In the anime, he also happens to be the company's Vice President, [[ImprobableAge despite being the same age as the rest of the main cast.]]

* BigGood: In the fifth game, of [=Team ProtoMan.=]
* BrightSlap: Delivers a verbal one to Lan a few times over the course of the games.
* ImprobableAge: In the anime, he's the Vice President of his dad's company, despite being Lan's age.
* {{Jerkass}}: Started out as this, before CharacterDevelopment took its toll.
** {{Jerk With a Heart of Gold}}
* MeaningfulName: [[AvertedTrope Not in the anime]]. Despite having the last name "Blaze", neither Proto Man, his navi, nor he himself are affiliated with fire.
* {{Must Have Caffeine}}
* TheRival: The more serious rival to Lan.
* TheSpock
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: In the {{manga}} he's a bit more hotheaded, prone to violent outbursts during comedic moments, particularly towards Lan and [[BrattyHalfPint Sean]], especially when Sean is being annoying and/or unhelpful.
* TeenGenius: More like a preteen genius. Not only an Official Netbattler, but at the end of the sixth game, while the rest of the cast was graduating from elementary school, Chaud reveals he graduated from ''High School''.
* TrainingFromHell: Is said that he trains his NetBattle skills for extended periods of time that would deprive anyone from eating food.
* {{Tsundere}}: [[HoYay Some of his behavior towards Lan]] in the manga can be interpreted this way.
** Not just the manga. In the games, he literally has lines like 'It's not like I'm here because I wanted to be with YOU, okay?' Especially in 2 and 3, you can feel the Tsun vibes rolling off him.
* WellDoneSonGuy: "[[LetsPlay/RoahmMythril Why is Chaud such a jerk? Because his dad's an even bigger one.]]"

!![=ProtoMan.EXE=] ''(Blues.EXE)''
->''Voiced by MasayaMatsukaze (JP) and DavidKaye (EN)''

Operated by Chaud. He shares the same stoic personality as Chaud. In the anime, he possesses one of the three Ultimate Programs.

* AntiHero: He is ''brutal'' in combat and does not show any mercy to his enemies.
* {{Badass}}: He's a combination of the ''Classic'' series Proto Man and Zero from the ''X'' series. Enough said.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Wields a bright red and pink LaserBlade in place of a buster cannon like most Navis, though he still has the option to use one.
* ChestInsignia: Split in half by a vertical Z or lightning mark of sorts. The left half is white while the right half is black. The symbol is echoed by Chaud's hair.
* CombatPragmatist: [=DesertMan=] frying your vision with trippy mirages? [=ProtoMan=]! Blind Mode!
* {{Expy}} / CompositeCharacter: Started the trend of the [=ProtoMan=] expies taking elements from their ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' incarnation Zero. While he has Proto Man's basic design, shield, and a visor on his helmet to approximate sunglasses, he also has long hair, is a high-ranked law enforcement official, and forsakes ranged combat to kick ass with his sword. Future [=ProtoMan=] expies would be as much as if not even more of Zero as well.
* CoolShades: Wouldn't be Proto Man without these. Sadly lacks the ScarfOfAsskicking, though.
* FaceHeelTurn: Is corrupted by Dark Chips in EXE 4 and 5, and then again in the anime, turning him evil and resulting in a few [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight I Know You Are In There Fights]].
* FlashStep: Is fond of attacks like Step Swords and Delta Ray Edge.
* TheLancer
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Has the Proto Shield to deflect attacks.
* NonIndicativeName: Only [[DubInducedPlotHole in the dub]]; [=ProtoMan.EXE=] isn't actually a ''prototype'' of anything.
* TheRival: The more serious rival to [=MegaMan.EXE=].
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: Like his operator, he's a bit more hot headed and prone to violence in the manga, usually directed towards Mega Man. Though at one point, when the Navis were physically manifested in the real world, he and Chaud both went after Sean for a comment he made [[CrowningMomentOfFunny at the exact same time.]]
* SwordBeam: Another trademark attack of his he takes from Zero.
* {{Tsundere}}: Again like his operator, [[HoYay some of his behavior]] towards Mega Man in the Manga can be seen this way.

->''Voiced by Creator/EriSendai (JP)''

This rather quiet girl lives around Cyber City in the sixth game. Almost nobody knows anything about her, other than that Colonel.EXE is unwilling to attack her. She assists Lan and [=MegaMan=] in various ways against WWW and the legendary beasts Falzar and Gregar. In the anime, she and Trill are residents of the alternate world Beyondard, in which she has been trying to end the war between the Falzars and the Gregars. She assists Mega Man in allowing him to Beast-Out without having him lose control of his powers and go berserk.

* [[spoiler:ApocalypseMaiden]]
* [[spoiler:CanNotSpitItOut: She likes Lan and almost tells him, but decides against it.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of ''VideoGame/MegaManX4's'' Iris.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: With Colonel at the end of the sixth game.]]
* MiddleChildSyndrome: In a sense. Since she was created from Colonel's kindness data, she thinks of Colonel as her older brother and when she finds Trill, he recognizes her as his big sister.
* MysteriousWaif
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:In the games, Iris.EXE is actually a Navi formed from the removed compassionate part of Colonel.EXE. She has the power to control military installations and networks around the world. Due to this, she has spent most of her life making use of Copybots, which allow Navis to appear in the real world, in order to hide from Wily.]]
* TheStoic: She's often softspoken and doesn't show much emotion.

->''Voiced by Creator/NorikoShitaya (JP)''

This young and childish Navi only appears in the anime. Trill is known as the Synchronizer, and has taken an immense liking to Mega Man for protecting him and Iris against the worshipers of Falzar and Gregar. Eventually Trill allows Mega Man to gain the ability to Beast-Out, thus gaining the powers of either of the two beasts, but Mega Man loses control and attacks anything in sight if Iris is not there as well.

* BadassAdorable: He tends to swing between one or the other.

!!Mick (Aragaki Kojirou)
Lan's best freind in Cyber City, though he'd never admit it, they became friends after Lan stopped [=BlastMan.EXE=], who tricked Mick into giving him access into the school security system. A bit of a {{Jerkass}}, he softens up over time. He has a standard navy with a custom red and orange paint scheme.

* {{Expy}}: Partially for Dex. He has Dex's pride and inital bully status, but is still a prick after he befriends Lan.
* {{Jerkass}}:Initially.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: As shown with Penga, he can be a nice guy when he wants to.
* MoralityPet: Penga the Penguin, who is one of the few things in 6 that get's him to feel something other than hate or disinterest.
* ShadowArchetype: To Lan. Both are proud netbattlers who have Navi's who mother them, but while Lan is incredibly friendly kid who's extremly close with his navi, Mick is rude to everyone and bickers with his Navi constantly.
* {{Tsundere}}: Fills this role after the [=BlastMan=] scenario, probably because Chaud had partially grown out of it by the sixth game.
* UnwittingPawn: He teams up with [=BlastMan=].EXE to get revenge on Lan for defeating a virus he set on him as a prank, but Blast Man just uses him to try and kill the teaching staff and cause panic.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With his Navi and Lan.

[[folder:World Three (WWW)]]
The main antagonists of the first season of the anime. They are also the main antagonists of the first and third games [[spoiler:and the sixth.]]

* PunchClockVillain: Dr. Wily aside, the rest of them are like this in the anime, with Yahoot running a curry restaurant that the others work at, which the protagonists actually frequent.

!!Dr. Wily
->''Voiced by Katsumi Cho (JP), Creator/PaulDobson (EN)''

The leader of World Three. Long ago, he tried to obtain funding for his research on robotics technology, but that funding went to the Hikari family's research on internet technology instead. Now he wants revenge by destroying the internet, despite the apparent irony of using the same internet technology to do so.

* BigBad: In 1, 3 and 6. Also see below.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When Lan and [=MegaMan=] are trying to stop him from unleashing [[EldritchAbomination Alpha]]: "You can't! There are no jacks in this room!"
* EvenEvilHasStandards: why he [[spoiler:gave Dr. Regal LaserGuidedAmnesia at the end of ''Battle Network 5''.]]
** When he split Colonel's kind side into [[spoiler:Iris]], he also bundled the weapon controls program with her, implying that at the time, he believed such a dangerous program needed to be used with restraint. Though this part kind of goes out the window when he tries to use the program in game 6.
* EvilIsNotAToy: [[spoiler:Gets hit with this in the end of the third game, when Alpha turns on him and devours him. He turned out to be NotQuiteDead.]]
* FatAndSkinny: [[ With Tadashi]] in flashback sequences during ''Battle Network 5''.
* HowToCheatDeath
* {{Irony}}: He's probably the best computer scientist around by the time the series starts, but he only uses his skills to destroy civilization out of spite for his rival. [[spoiler:At least until the end of the series.]]
* MadScientist
* MadeOfIron: Survived being at or near the epicenter of at least four different explosions (one of which was strong enough to destroy half of Cyber City and another that ''took out an entire island'') and also having his mind drained by [[spoiler:Alpha]].
* TheManBehindTheMan: In the second game.
* MoralityChain: Baryl's father seemed to be one for him, since he ended up resuming his evil plans after the former's death.
* MoralityPet: Though later on, [[spoiler:Colonel and Iris's HeroicSacrifice causes him to have a HeelRealization]]
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate
* OmnicidalManiac
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:adopting Baryl and paying for the treatment of Mach's ill daughter.]]
** [[spoiler: after defeating the Cybeast in [=BN6=], he urges Lan to escape the exploding base while he just stays behind.]]
* RedemptionEqualsLife: [[spoiler:at the end of the series, touched by the HeroicSacrifice of Colonel and Iris, Wily survives the explosion of his base, and willingly surrenders to the authorities. He later sends Lan a letter to thank him.]]
** Except in the Japanese version of 6, where he dies with his hatred.
* YouCouldHaveUsedYourPowersForGood: Tadashi Hikari seems to think this about Wily in the third game, which makes sense given that they worked on [=SoulNet=] together. [[spoiler:Though in the NA version of 6, Wily makes a HeelFaceTurn.]]

!!Mr. Match ''(Kenichi "Hinoken" Hino)''
->''Mr. Match voiced by: Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi (JP), Creator/TrevorDevall (EN)''

* NightmareFace: [=HeatMan=] possesses one by default.
* PantheraAwesome: [=FlameMan=] is somewhat leonine in appearance.
* PyroManiac: [=FireMan=] in ''Network Transmission'', after being given the [[BrainwashedAndCrazy false vaccine.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Mr. Match is the most prominent user of Fire Navis in the series, given he has three of them and makes an appearance in all Battle Network games except 5.

!!Count Jack Zap ''(Count Jack "Elec" Elekiter)''
->''Count Zap voiced by: Creator/KentaMiyake (JP), Colin Murdock (EN)''
->''[=ElecMan=] voiced by: Creator/ChihiroSuzuki (JP), KirbyMorrow (EN)''

* GratuitousEnglish: "OH! MY! GAHD!"

* KnightOfCerebus: His attack in the first Megaman Battle Network is ''far'' more serious than Ms. Madd's.
* ShockAndAwe: [=ElecMan.EXE=].

!!Ms. Madd ''(Madoi Iroaya)''
->''Madd voiced by: Creator/JunkoNoda (JP), TabithaStGermain (EN)''
->''[=ColorMan=] voiced by: Creator/YujiUeda (JP), Andrew Thoth (EN)''

-> A fashionable yet goofy woman that can be quite cunning at times. Operator of [=ColorMan.EXE=].

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Subverted. [=ColorMan=] is notably the ONLY WWW Navi in ''Network Transmission'' that was not targeted by the false vaccine. In fact, [=ColorMan=] was completely unaware of the current state of affairs; he was just bored because Madd was ignoring him.
* DubNameChange: From [=ColorMan.EXE to WackoMan.EXE=] in the anime.
* ElementalPowers: [=ColorMan=] has PlayingWithFire and MakingASplash.
* HeelFaceTurn: After disbanding from WWW in the anime, though she sometimes does heinous things in occasion.
* FightingClown: [=ColorMan=].Exe.

!!Yahoot ''(Mahajarama)''
->''Yahoot voiced by: Kenichi Sonobe (JP), RonHalder (EN)''
->''[=MagicMan=] voiced by: Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi (JP), Creator/PaulDobson (EN)''

-> He runs a curry restaurant that Lan frequently visits in the anime. In the games, he was Dr. Wily's right hand man, and nearly succeeds in deleting Mega Man. Operator of [=MagicMan.EXE=]. Voiced by RonHalder in the dub.

->''Rei voiced by: NobuyukiHiyama''
->''[=FlashMan=] voiced by: Makoto Yasumura''

-> Operator of [=FlashMan=].EXE, he manages to steal one of the Tetracodes from the school network that is required to release Alpha in the third game.

* CallingYourAttacks: "SHINING BROWSER CRASHER!"
* HeroicRROD: Induces a temporary one by frying Lan's PET.
* LightEmUp[=/=]ShockAndAwe: While technically an Elec-element Navi, [=FlashMan=]'s attacks are mostly light-based.
* MeaningfulName: His name sounds a lot like "psycho ray", [=FlashMan=]'s signature move is a ray of light that causes people and devices to go haywire.
* SmugSnake: Has the personality of one, and his character sprite is always wearing an arrogant smirk.

!!Takeo Inukai
->''Inukai voiced by: Creator/KiyoyukiYanada''
->''[=BeastMan=] voiced by: HiroshiMatsumoto (JP), Creator/ScottMcNeil (EN)''

-> Operator of [=BeastMan=].EXE and a zookeeper of Yoka Zoo. In the third game, he manages to steal the second Tetracode from the zoo after causing a disruption through electronic implants in every animal in the zoo.

* BeastMan: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Well,]] ''[[CaptainObvious if it isn't obvious already]]''.
* {{Expy}}: Don't you DARE tell me you took one look at [=BeastMan=] and didn't think he was meant to be the Netnavi counterpart to [[VideoGame/MegaMan7 Slash Man]].
* {{Gonk}}: Inukai is very brutish in appearance.
* MixAndMatchCritters: [=BeastMan=] has saberteeth, WolverineClaws, and a lion's mane.
* WolverineClaws: [=BeastMan=].
* [[spoiler:YouHaveFailedMe: Wily disposes of them after their failure in the Rankings.]]

->''Voiced by: Chiyako Shibahara (JP), Gabe Kouth (EN)''

-> A rather cowardly autonomous (self-reliant) Navi. In the third game, he devises a plan to have washing machines produced by World Three trap users in a sort of bubble bomb. Drillman mentions that Bubbleman is like a close cousin to him.
* AdaptationalWimp[=/=]AdaptationalBadass: In the anime, he can't do anything to hurt Megaman. On the other hand, he's the only Darkloid who managed to avoid deletion and the only one to show up in every season of the anime starting with Axess and when he's [[RedemptionPromotion fighting alongside the good guys, his combat skills increase being able to delete some of Dr. Regal's viruses and some Beastized viruses.
* ButtMonkey: In the anime. He's treated as joke by most everyone, and even Shade Man doesn't start treating him any better until he sees that he's the only Darkloid loyal to him, but then he sees Shade Man brutally killed by Regal.
* DirtyCoward: He spends an entire ''day'' running like hell from you, and forcing you to chase his goons all over the Internet. Even in battle, he hides behind a rock and a myriad of deadly bubble traps. ''[[UpToEleven And it doesn't end when he dies.]]'' When you can meet him again as a random encounter, he will only appear in Beach Area when you're at critical health. [[GoddamnedBoss Yeah.]]
** ISurrenderSuckers: After being beaten in his scenario in the 3rd game he begs Lan and Megaman to spare him if he dispels the bubble bomb when Megaman and Lan do spare him he then proceeds to attempt to set off the bombs instead he's prevented from doing so when Chaud and Protoman show up and finish him off before he can.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: In the anime, he does antagonize Lan and Mega Man occasionally, but he befriends Ice Man and Spout Man later. In the last episode of Axess, he helps the other navis fight some viruses to retaliate against Regal for deleting Shade Man and helps the others cheer for Lan and Mega Man. At the end, he brings Rush back to the protagonists after kidnapping him earlier. Then in Stream, he goes back to being a villain, helping Shade Man alter the past allowing Darkloids to rule the world, and in Beast, he hands over Trill to the heroes, terrorizes Net City by pretending to be a Cybeast, helps the Cross Fusion Team (sans the ones stuck in Beyondard) fight off the Beastized viruses, and in Beast +, he forms an allegiance with Blackbeard and Yuika.
* IfIWereARichMan: He is in love with money in the {{Manga}}.
* ItsAllAboutMe: When Mega defeats him in combat, the first thing out of his mouth is whining about how ''you're bullying him''. Nevermind that he's holding thousands of people hostage with explosives, which is why Mega's hunting him down in the first place.
* OddFriendship: Not really friends but by the time he met Ice Man and Spout Man in the anime, he was way over-shadowed by more powerful Navis (and was the butt of many jokes among the Darkloids). Shade Man, however, seemed to have a soft spot for the guy almost bordering on being a father figure (gently inquiring on where Bubble Man had been). That couldn't last long [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique given what]] Shade Man was [[CastFromLifespan using.]]
* MakingASplash
* SpamAttack: His Navi-chip fires a series of harpoons that do separate amounts of damage, meaning that this can cause considerable devastation with Attack Plus chips, ESPECIALLY against [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Heat-element enemies.]]
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the anime, he's the only Darkloid to avoid deletion. Probably because he didn't use any Dark Chips.
* UndyingLoyalty: The only Darkloid who didn't betray Shade Man in the anime.
* VerbalTic: In Japanese, he appends "puku" to the ends of his sentences. In English, he says "blub" a lot, and his blubs can be interpreted as swearing.

!!Noboru Sunayama
->''Sunayama voiced by: Creator/KenNarita (JP)''
->''[=DesertMan=] voiced by: Creator/KiyoyukiYanada (JP), Ward Perry (EN)''

-> A flamboyant and very popular television actor, this man arranges the N1 Grand Prix tournament in the third game, which was ultimately an attempt to force Chaud to give up [=ProtoMan=] to him (while holding Chaud's father hostage) and announce the World Three's return live to the entire world. Operator of Desertman.EXE.

* AffablyEvil
* AttentionWhore: He very clearly wants people to know that it was HIM that beat everyone in the N1.
* DishingOutDirt: [=DesertMan=] is essentially a sand golem.
* GracefulLoser: While he tries to pull a LookBehindYou, he surrenders quietly when apprehended and merely asks that he receives the TV ratings for the N1 Grand Prix.
* IntelligibleUnintelligible: [=DesertMan=] speaks in what one can only assume are sandstorm noises, but the game provides subtitles.
* LargeHam: [[JustifiedTrope Somewhat fitting]], since he works in television.
* LogicalWeakness: [=DesertMan=] vanishes after every hit... unless you deal [[MakingASplash Aqua]] damage, which turns him to mud and stalls him.
* MeaningfulName: Suna means "sand."
* NiceHat

->''Anetta voiced by: Creator/RieKugimiya (JP), Creator/MarykeHendrikse (EN)''
->''[=PlantMan=] voiced by: Creator/HiroyukiYoshino (JP), Creator/BradSwaile (EN)''

-> In the games, she is a nature-loving woman that has Plantman.EXE take over the hospital network, causing the computer-controlled tree of life to grow vines that disrupted hospital services. In the end, she is successful in stealing the third Tetracode from the hospital.

* AdaptationalHeroism[=/=]HeelFaceTurn: Anetta in the anime. She works for Regal at first and attempts to sabotage Chaud and Proto Man with a Dark Chip as revenge for Proto Man deleting her navi, Silk. Once she realizes it was a misunderstanding, she leaves Regal and exposes him as the leader of Nebula. Afterwards, she occasionally shows up to help Lan and Chaud.
* CampGay: Dear Tadashi, PLANTMAN. He constantly spouts [[IncrediblyLamePun flowery]] metaphors relating to plant life, and quite clearly thinks of [=MegaMan=] as impressive. You wouldn't think it'd be healthy for a Wood-element Navi to be so [[IncrediblyLamePun flaming.]]
* DarkSkinnedRedhead
* GreenThumb: [=PlantMan.Exe.=]
* HospitalHottie: The evil kind.
* PurpleProse: [=PlantMan=]. Think [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} Balder]] with roses instead of peacocks and you're halfway there.

->''Voiced by: Satoshi Katougi (JP), Creator/TrevorDevall (EN)''

-> Another autonomous Navi of the World Three, he considers Bubbleman to be somewhat of a cousin of sorts. Wily calls on him in the third game to drill and break through Scilab security and steal the program containing Alpha.

* TheDragon: In 3.
* DynamicEntry: [[spoiler: When he's resurrected as a tank, he very nearly takes out Lan by smashing through the wall.]]
* NoKillLikeOverkill: His [=NaviChip=]. Three drills across the board, then he pops out of three enemy spaces, THEN drops rocks on them. Also, [[UnblockableAttack it's Break-element.]]
* PsychoSupporter: Easily the most crazed WWW member, barring perhaps Wily himself. He's also fanatically loyal to Wily.
* ThisIsADrill: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Well, obviously.]] He even provides the page picture.

!!Joe Mach ''(Go Mach)''
-> In the sixth game, he is Lan's teacher at Cyber Academy. [[spoiler:He is the operator of [=BlastMan=].EXE and assists the others in capturing [=MegaMan=] as a favor to Baryl, but has a sense of guilt and helps Lan find [=MegaMan=] after all of the other members decide to break off from Baryl and the World Three.]]

* [[spoiler: AntiVillain]]
* [[spoiler:BashBrothers: with Baryl.]]
* BigDamnHeroes[=/=]DynamicEntry: [[spoiler:his rescue of Lan and Baryl from the W3 dissidents.]]
* BadassTeacher[=/=]CoolTeacher: While [=BlastMan=]'s combat prowess is nothing to write home about, Mr. Mach himself is this. See BigDamnHeroes above.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Joe Mach is known for giving stern lectures. [[spoiler:After defeating [=BlastMan=] the first time, the evil Navi complains about his operator giving him a lecture.]]
* GeniusBruiser: Is a competent teacher and asskicker.
* NotWhatISignedOnFor: [[spoiler:After losing to Mega Man at the Undernet 2 area, his comrades (or rather, soon-to-be-ex-comrades) reveal their intention to break away from WWW and join up with their benefactor. Joe Mach refuses, and states that he only agreed to help them so they'd deliver the Cybeast back to WWW, and makes it very clear that he did not intend to defect from WWW.]]
* OneSteveLimit: Only in the English version though, but he takes a quick note on how Match's name are similar to his in ''Gregar''.
* ShoutOut: To ''Anime/SpeedRacer''--just look at his Japanese name.

!!Blackbeard ''(Captain Kurohige)''
->''Blackbeard voiced by: KoujiIshii''
->''[=DiveMan=] voiced by: Shinji Kawada''

-> A man with violent tendencies with a tendency to talk like a pirate. In the sixth game, he attempts to cause mass chaos at the Aquarium as revenge for being fired from the Aquarium. Operator of [=DiveMan=].EXE.

* {{Expy}}: To Inukai from [=BN3=], for being an abusive animal trainer and causing chaos using them. Both of them are the second WWW member to face [=MegaMan=] [[spoiler:and also the earliest WWW members to be dispatched]] in their respective games.
* {{Pirate}}
* WhipItGood: Carries a black bullwhip.

!!Yuika ''(Chirol)''
->''Yuika voiced by: Rie Kanda''
->''[=CircusMan=] voiced by: Yasuhiko Kawada''

-> A rather selfish girl that will use underhanded tactics to get ahead in life. In the games, she, along with Circusman.EXE, revives Gregar and Falzar. They capture the one opposite of the version being played, while Mega Man absorbs the other. [[spoiler: Later on, they successfully capture Mega Man for a short time, and Yuika along with everyone but Mach break off from the World Three to form their own organization.]]

* {{Expy}}: She's Ms. Madd with the correct job position that has more similarities with her Navi. [=CircusMan=] also fills the "annoying-and-gimmicky-villain" role of [=BubbleMan=] and [=CloudMan=].
* MonsterClown: The operator of [=CircusMan=].EXE. She also has a clownish getup and tends to be rather causal about doing evil things. She also acts in a similar manner to a circus performer.
* TemptingFate: [[ "He's still just an illusion, he can't do anything"]], yeah [[ except cause a massive explosion]]

!!Prosecutor Ito ''(Satoru Roppo)''
-> A cheerful but cynical lawyer who wants justice, but knows that true justice cannot be achieved unless the world is destroyed. He and [=JudgeMan=].EXE serve the World Three by punishing those that fail the organization and remove those that are deemed to be a threat. They attempt to frame Yuichiro Hikari in the sixth game.

* AmoralAttorney: He wants true justice by destroying the world.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Even when he is revealed to be an enemy, his friendly personality really doesn't change that much.
* BooksThatBite: One of [=JudgeMan=]'s attacks summons giant fanged books that chomp towards his opponents.
* {{Expy}}: while his beliefs and actions are somewhat reminiscent of Light Yagami.
* EyesAlwaysShut
* {{Hypocrite}}: He possesses a strong hatred of criminals and anything unjust, but becomes one in the pursuit of his goals. Also, even though he believes in order, he tries to bring it about by destroying the crime-filled world.
* JudgeJuryAndExecutioner
* ShockAndAwe: Judgeman has an attack that strikes you with an electrical whip. This seems to be the only "Law" or "Justice" type attack he has since the rest seem to fit the book theme (He was originally called Bookman.EXE which makes much more sense)

!!Vic ''(Tsuyuharu Nyudo)''
-> A man that can be described as somewhat of a lunatic with some ninja-like abilities that have never really been explained in the sixth game. He and [=ElementMan=].EXE wreak havoc with the weather by taking over Sky Town's weather control system.

* ElementalPowers: [=ElementMan=] can access all four main elements in the series; [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[AnIcePerson Aqua]], [[ShockAndAwe Elec]] and [[GreenThumb Wood]].
* MasterOfDisguise
* PsychoticSmirk: Wears one constantly.
* TornadoMove: One of [=ElementMan=]'s attacks.

!!Baryl ''(Barrel)''
->''Voiced by: Creator/IsshinChiba''

-> A rather mysterious man that has a connection with Wily, at least in the games. He forms a team with Lan and several others in the fifth game to liberate the internet from Nebula.

* {{Badass}}
* BigGood: In the fifth game, of Team Colonel.
* TheDragon: In the sixth game.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Gives one to Lan in the fifth game.
* HappilyAdopted: By Wily in the games.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Starts out as an ally in the fifth, then becomes Wily's [[TheDragon second-in-command]], before Lan and Mega Man manage to convince Baryl and Colonel to turn against Wily after [=MegaMan=] defeats Colonel in the sixth game.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Yes, the anti-Nebula team leader in Team Colonel is with the World Three in the sixth game.
* PermaStubble

->''Voiced by: Creator/HirokiYasumoto''

-> Operated by Baryl. Designed by Wily and given to Baryl, Colonel was supposed to be the perfect Navi, having the best fighting capabilities while being compassionate. The compassionate part was removed [[spoiler: (and became Iris.EXE)]] when Baryl's father died fighting a war.

* ColonelBadass: Literally. Even gets a battle chip labeled "Colonel's Army" to emphasize this.
* ChestInsignia: A thin black outline of a minus sign against a gray background. There are two black vertical bars attached to the top end and the bottom end as well.
* [[spoiler: EleventhHourSuperPower: His complete form with Iris is implied to be on or nearly the same level as Hub.bat [=MegaMan.EXE=], demonstrated when he completely annihilates the Cybeast that took over Mega Man in one blow without harming Mega Man himself.]]
* TheDragon: With Baryl in the sixth game.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: With Iris at the end of the sixth game.]]
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Variation. [[spoiler: He used to be far more emotional and more capable of conscience until that part of himself was spun off into a separate being called Iris.EXE.]]

!! Viddy Narcy ''(Narcy Hide)''
* AdaptationalVillainy[=/=]AscendedExtra: In the games, while he's definitely not nice, he's still not a villain. In the anime, he becomes a member of Neo-WWW. In Beast, he has a Beyondard counterpart who's the king of a town's criminal underground and abuses the citizens.
* ButtMonkey: Particularly his Beyondard counterpart in Beast who keeps getting blown away by Tengu Man.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Seriously, just look at him.

[[folder:Net Agents]]
-> A net official that is also a fisherman of sorts. He runs a beef shop. The contradiction is an intentional part of the undercover disguise. Operator of [=SharkMan=].EXE.

* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks: Subverted.
* MakingASplash: [=SharkMan=].EXE.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In the anime, he pretends to know nothing of Netbattles.
* PutOnABus[=/=]WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He pretty much disappears after a filler episode of Axess and when he returns in Beast, its his Beyondard counterpart.
* SecretIdentity: He is Commander Beef to almost everyone else.

!!Sal ''(Saroma)''
-> A calm woman that loves nature and strives to protect it through non-violent means in this technology-based age. Operator of [=WoodMan=].EXE. Voiced by Creator/KellySheridan in the dub.

* AscendedExtra: In the first game she's simply an optional opponent and has a tournament mini-arc (like any other tournament opponent) in the fourth game. In the anime she's a teammate of Commander Beef.
* BlushSticker
* GreenThumb: [=WoodMan=].
* NatureHero
* NiceGirl: Contrast to [[{{Jerkass}} most of the tournament people you face in the fourth game]]. But even then a problem will always try to slip in.

!!Miyu Kuroi ''(Miyuki Kuroi)''
-> A mysterious woman with strange psychic powers (perhaps not limited to sensing a very odd aura from [=MegaMan=].EXE in the first game) that runs an antique shop. Operator of Skullman.EXE. Voiced by Creator/AnnaCummer in the dub.

* AscendedExtra: She's nothing but an optional opponent in the first game but is a semi-regular character in the anime.
* DemBones: Well, it's [=SkullMan=]...
* TheStoic: In the anime.
* SuperStoicShopkeeper: And a real creepy one at that.

[[folder:Supporting Cast]]
!!Dr. Yuichiro Hikari
-> Lan's father, a renowned computer scientist. Voiced by MichaelAdamtwaite in the dub.

* BadassPacifist: In the fifth game, he holds out against being subjected to ColdBloodedTorture for an unbelievable amount of time, and [[spoiler: risks dying in an exploding volcano to give the man who engineered said torture one last chance at redemption.]]
* GenerationXerox: He continues his father's work [[spoiler:and Lan follows closely in both their footsteps.]]
* GoodParents: He's not around to raise his son as often as he probably should be, but when he is around he is a dependable father figure, and its quite clear his son and wife hold him in high regard. It helps that he sends Lan plenty of cool stuff like Battle Chips and the Navi Customizer.
* {{Megane}}: He looks good with those glasses.
* NotThatKindOfDoctor
* UnnamedParent: In the English versions of the first three games, he is only referred to as "Dr. Hikari" or "[Lan's] Dad." It wasn't until the Battle Chip Challenge SpinOff that his first name was revealed, and only the 5th and 6th games mentioned it in the main series.

!! Haruka Hikari
-> Lan's mother.

* AllThereInTheManual: Haruka's name is not mentioned anywhere in the games proper.
* EducationMama: Lan can NOT sneak bad grades past this woman, though given he's not one for studying, it's hard to knock her for this.
* GoodParents: Like her husband, she's a very dutiful parent to their son, and Lan and Mega Man both respect her.
* HeroicBSOD: Has one in the fifth game when temporarily BrainwashedAndCrazy, and it's a TearJerker to watch, especially because [[spoiler: it involves her sorrow over her kidnapped husband.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: In the GaidenGame (Battle Chip Challenge), she's a possible battle contestant.

!!Ms. Mari ''(Mariko Ozono)''
-> The young teacher in Lan's elementary school.

* AnimeHair: Her hair buns looks like a pair of swiss rolls.
* BoundAndGagged: In the first game only. You're strangely given the OPTION to free her.
* ForcedTutorial: For the first two games.
* ShipTease: With Higsby, although it's definitely more from his end.
* SiblingYinYang: With her sister Yuri. The anime emphasizes this even further.

!!Ribitta ''(Kero Midorikawa)''
-> A rather quirky news reporter who is so dedicated to getting the first scoop on everything to the point where she is willing to travel and film overseas without the appropriate licenses in the second game. Operator of [=ToadMan.EXE=].

* AnimalMotifs: Frogs, of course.
* CombatCommentator: In the [[TournamentArc N1 Grand Prix arc]] of the anime.
* DemotedToExtra: Aside from being the tournament announcer she was otherwise ignored. She still showed up every season on news reports, but she wasn't a Duo Crest holder despite almost everyone else in BN5 being one, and she never had a single focus episode in any season. Toadman was even worse, only really getting one major scene period in the first season.
* HotScoop: Regarded as one in universe.
* IntrepidReporter
* MakingASplash: ToadMan.Exe.
* ShockAndAwe: Despite being Aqua element, [=ToadMan=]'s battle chip deals Elec damage.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: It seems that she was going to be a member of the Cross Fusion team in ''Stream'', but in the end it was decided against.

!!Higsby ''(Yamitaro Higure)''
-> A part-time teacher of sorts that also runs the local battlechip shop. In the first game, he was a member of World Three and tried to brainwash the local Akihara school into becoming World Three servants. Since that failed attempt, he cut off ties with the World Three and becomes a close friend to Lan and Mega Man's group.

* AdaptationalHeroism: His villainous actions in the anime are far less despicable than they were in the game where he merely holds Mayl, Dex, Yai, and Ms. Mari hostage to get Yai's rare chips instead of brainwashing every kid in school and trapping Ms. Mari in the supply closet. It helps that the anime Higsby wasn't a WWW member.
* {{Adorkable}}: At times.
* AnimeHair: [[ Just look at it!]]
* HeelFaceTurn: We mentioned that he was in World Three at the beginning of the first game, right?
* NerdGlasses
* {{Otaku}}
* ProudToBeAGeek
* PutOnABus: In the 6th game, when you get access to your hometown again his chip shop is locked up with a sign on the door saying he's overseas on a trip.
* ShipTease: It's blatantly obvious that he has a crush on Ms. Mari. In the games, Higsby's sometimes seen daydreaming about her and in the fifth game, he says he's going to propose after the adventure's over.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses
* VerbalTic: He adds "huh" to almost every sentence in English. In Japanese, he replaces "desu" with "demasu". He even writes the "huh"s in his emails!

-> An intelligent Navi that appears to have a huge brain of sorts encased in a light bulb. Operated by Higsby. Voiced by SamuelVincent in the dub.

* ChestInsignia: Dark green right angle triangle complete with a small yellow square at the base of the triangle. The triangle is set against a lighter green background.
* GoodWithNumbers
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Dice bombs, protractor boomerangs, and math balls. In the anime, he also uses swords that look like oversized {{Mahjong}} scoring sticks.
* LovableCoward: He's not the best at netbattling, but people love him anyway.
* TheSmartGuy: Of Team Colonel.
* TookALevelInBadass: He's frankly pathetic in the first game, but in later appearances he's a far more formidable opponent.

!!Mr. Famous ''(Meijin Eguchi)''
-> A man with an outgoing personality that offers advice to young Netbattlers and tests them. Operator of GateMan.EXE, Punk.EXE, KendoMan.EXE, and FootMan.EXE in the games, although he is never seen with more than one at a time.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Three of his navis show up in the anime as Zoanoroids.
* AmicableExes: In the anime, he and his ex-girlfriend Makoto Akoi are on good terms, to the point where Famous even rescues her from Zoan Punk.
* CatchPhrase: "san wa iranai", or in the dub, "Famous. Just Famous.".
* ContestWinnerCameo: All of his Navis, except Punk.
* CreatorCameo: Mr. Famous ''is'' Masakazu "Meijin" Eguchi, a scenario writer for the ''EXE'' series (who would also get an avatar in [[VideoGame/MegaManStarForce Legend Master Shin]]). During the early tournaments following the release of the first game, Masakazu gained a name for himself by demonstrating mastery of the mechanics.
* InsistentTerminology: He insists on being called "Meijin" and not "Meijin-[[JapaneseHonorifics san]]", and always says "san wa iranai" (roughly "no need for the -san") whenever he gets called "Meijin-san". Once, he underscores this by pointing out he isn't even over thirty, yet.
** The dub changes this to an aversion to being called "Mr.", which is a fairly direct translation.
* RedOniBlueOni: With another CreatorCameo -- the character of Soul Battler Takeshi. Takeshi, who [[EasterEgg only appears]] in certain message boards in the last few games (and who is the reason for all the "Soul" naming in ''6''), is the Battle Network incarnation of a much-beloved EXE tournament host whose HotBlooded-ness is often juxtaposed with the cool, collected Mr. Famous. [[ More information on Takeshi, here]].

!!Tory Froid ''(Tohru Hikawa)''
-> A rather young boy whose father manages the Waterworks, which purifies and controls the water supply. Because of this, he was kidnapped and taken hostage by WWW in an attempt to force his father and [=IceMan=].EXE to comply to the WWW's demands.

* AscendedExtra: In the first game, he was just a random kid you rescued, and had a generic sprite. In the anime, he becomes a much more major character.
** DemotedToExtra: And then he is hit with this in later seasons. It makes you wonder what the point of giving him a bigger role was...
* BilingualBonus: "Froid" is the French word for cold.
* ButtMonkey: When he starts appearing less often starting in Axess, the group usually goes off somewhere without him. Twice in Axess, the group boards Yai's rocket to investigate what caused one of her satellites to disappear and to confront Dr. Regal leaving him behind. Then in Beast +, he and Mayl are at Higsby's Chip Shop when she notices Lan and Dex and follows them, ditching Tory in the process.
* FlatCharacter: He looks generic for an anime character and beyond his love of history and hot springs, he doesn't get much characterization.
-> Operated by Tory and his father. Ice Man is a rather small and cute Eskimo-type Navi specializing in ice attacks. Voiced by SamuelVincent in the dub.

* BadassAdorable
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In ''Network Transmission'', Mr. Froid gives him the Zero Virus Vaccine.
* ChestInsignia: A bright blue eight-pointed star against a slightly darker blue background.
* AnIcePerson

-> A military commander from the cold nation of Sharo, he is the operator of the sniper [=SearchMan=].EXE. They usually only cared about achieving their objectives during dangerous missions, but in the anime, they eventually warm up to the main casts' friendly personalities.

* AscendedExtra: He and Search Man become main characters in the anime during ''Beast''.
* BodyguardCrush: In the anime, Raika is given some ShipTease with Princess Pride.
* BreakoutCharacter: Is given a much larger role in the laters seasons, basically becoming the tertiary protagonist after Lan and Chaud.
* ColdSniper
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* MilitaryBrat: Comes with him being a Russian (Sharo) soldier stereotype.
* SugarAndIcePersonality

!! Jasmine
A Chinese girl who's studying medicine.
* AnimeChineseGirl
* CoolOldGuy: Jasmine's grandpa is highly knowledgeable in medicine and computer technology, is kind towards animals (pandas in particular) and enjoys playing mild pranks on Lan and Dex by making him think he can open doors, refrigerators, and light stoves with magic when he's really holding a remote control in his hand.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Jasmine and her grandfather are shown to be kind to animals.
* TheMedic: Meddy being a nurse, serves this role in the games and anime.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In Megaman Battle Network 5, Jasmine is studying medicine to find a cure for grandpas's disease. In the anime, he's Jasmine's medicinal teacher and perfectly healthy.

!! Fyrefox ''(Rokushakudama Nenji)''
A fireworks maker who joins Team Proto Man with his navi Napalm Man and becomes a member of the Cross Fusion team in the anime's Stream season.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the games, he's willing to steal items to make better fireworks and only joins Team Proto Man to avoid getting arrested. In the anime, he's a law abiding citizen.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He yells at just about everyone he comes across, but will often attempt to do the right thing to protect others, such as when Asteroid Napalm Man accidentally showed up in his PET injured, he immediately nursed him back to health.
* PlayingWithFire: He's a pyro technician and operates Napalm Man.exe in the games and anime.
* TooDumbToLive: In one episode of Stream, he keeps calling Tesla [[BerserkButton an old lady]] setting her off and making her chase him and Lan.
* VirtrolicBestBuds: Nenji and Napalm Man argue about everything, but are capable of working together and care about each other, such as when Napalm Man entered a Net Police robot to stop Magnet Man and drives it into a trash compactor to make sure it wouldn't hurt any humans, Nenji then enters the compactor, removes the robot's CPU to jack Napalm Man out. Nenji yells at Napalm Man for almost getting himself deleted while Napalm Man retorts that Nenji could've gotten himself crushed and the two laugh it off.

!! Charlie Airstar
A pilot and the operator of Gyro Man.exe. Becomes a member of the Cross Fusion team in the anime.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Charile often acts goofy and has a smug look on his face, but when things get dangerous, he's capable of being serious.
* DatingCatwoman[=/=]VillainousCrush: He and Tesla have some feelings for each other.
* {{Greed}}: Downplayed. In the anime, he wanted to arrest Sunyama for his museum robberies because the owners were willing to pay handsomely for the returned artworks.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: He's one of the few people not affected by Regal's Soul Net Server.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In his debut, he flirts with just about every woman he comes across (including Ms. Mari), but beyond that he turned out to be a good person such as catching Lan and Chaud with his helicopter when the two are forced to fall out of a sand filled building.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When he takes Tesla to an island where some scientists are building a satellite and realizes that Neo WWW is planning on hijacking it, he admits that Neo WWW's attack is partly his fault and helps the scientists, Lan, and Mega Man defeat Neo WWW.

!! Tesla Magnus ''(Tesla Magnets)''
* BadBoss[=/=]SpoiledBrat: In the anime, she expects birthday presents from her Neo WWW lackeys ''during the entire month her birthday is in''. Needless to say, they ran out of money and ideas pretty quickly.
* BerserkButton: Don't call her an old lady.
* EvilIsPetty: In the anime, the Net Police misprint her age as 30 on her wanted poster and spends the whole episode hijacking one of their robots and rampages throughout the city chasing Lan and Nenji. At the end, Mr. Gauss changes her age to 29.
* {{Jerkass}}: In the fifth game, she's mining some minerals and Lan's friends fall underground and could've been buried alive. When Lan asks her to turn off the mining machines, she tells him to do it himself.
* SavingTheVillain[=/=]TokenEvilTeammate: In the anime, she recruits Inukai, Rei, Sunyama, and Narcy as the Neo WWW, but joins the Cross Fusion Team when the other characters save her from Dark Mega Man.
* ShockAndAwe: She becomes Magnet Man's operator in the fifth game and the anime's Stream season.


[[folder:Net Mafia Gospel]]
-> This Net Mafia group makes up the villains for the second game and the second season of the anime. Their main goal in both the game and the anime is to create a beast made up of internet bugs with the power to destroy all that stand in their way.

!!Arashi Kazefuki
-> A rather mean-spirited man that makes a living out of extorting money from rich families in any way that he can. He tries to extort money from Yai's parents to fund Gospel projects by leaking dangerous gas into Yai's house at the beginning of the second game. The operator of [=AirMan.EXE=].

* AdaptationalWimp: In the classic series, [=AirMan=] is ThatOneBoss and even has a song dedicated for his toughness. Here he is the StarterVillain that has no combat gimmicks contrast to the rest of the [=BN2=] Navis.
* BlowYouAway: [=AirMan=].
* KnightOfCerebus: A rare early example - The early arcs in Megaman Battle Network tend to be somewhat comedic or wacky. The first scenario of Megaman Battle Network 2 is him ''gassing'' a pre-pubescent girl to blackmail her parents. This pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the game...
* MeaningfulName: "Arashi" means "storm", and "Kaze" means "wind".
* OhCrap: His reaction once he notices the bomb noted below.
* YouHaveFailedMe: In the second game he is blown up by a briefcase bomb after losing to Lan and Mega Man.

!!Speedy Dave ''(Daisuke Hayami)''
-> He is an ecoterrorist that joined Gospel out of his love of nature. He brags a lot about his IQ of 160. He is the operator of Quickman.EXE, and attempts to blow up a dam in the second game. In the anime, he is a childhood friend of Sal. Voiced by Creator/KirbyMorrow in the dub.

* AntiVillain: Only in the anime, as it turns out that he never truly planned to hurt anyone, and wanted to merely scare them into taking better care of nature. By the end of the episode, he has betrayed Gospel and leaves, but not before saying goodbye to Sal.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [=QuickMan=]'s EarlyBirdCameo in ''NetworkTransmission'' has him taken over by the false vaccine.
* ConfusionFu: Well, it is [[ThatOneBoss/MegaMan Quick Man...]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: At least in terms of the game's timeline. In ''[[{{Interquel}} Network Transmission]]'', he sends Lan a thank you letter for stopping the [[BrainwashedAndCrazy vaccinated]] [=QuickMan=].EXE before he becomes an enemy in [=MMBN2=].
* FlashStep: [=QuickMan=] will happily evade every attack you throw at him using this. You only get a chance to hit him when he's currently attacking you (like many bosses in the second game).
* InformedAbility: As Chaud said, his IQ of 160(!!) didn't do him much good...

!!Mr. Dark/[[InconsistentDub Dusk]] ''(Dark Miyabi)''
-> A mysterious and dangerous assassin-for-hire that operates Shadowman.EXE and is feared throughout both the real and cyber worlds. He is hired by Gospel in the second game to destroy key installations that make up the network, but fails when Mega Man and Proto Man intervene. In the fifth game, after a short fight, he agrees to help [=MegaMan=] and Colonel retake the internet from Nebula.

* {{Badass}}: [=ShadowMan=] is quite capable of single-handedly undermining an internet government.
* BadassNormal: In the anime, he defeated Zoan Blizzard Man using some ninja caltrops.
* {{Combo}}: [=ShadowMan=] in the second game utilizes both Grass Stage and a fire bomb attack. Fire attacks deal double damage on enemies standing on a grass panel.
* EarlyBirdCameo: In ''Network Transmission''. [[spoiler:The last thing you see in that game is him talking to Gospel.]]
** He actually appeared even earlier, he's a BonusBoss in the first game.
* FuumaShuriken: [[IconicItem It wouldn't be ShadowMan without them.]]
** FlechetteStorm: His [=NaviChip=], as well as an advance that utilizes it, [=BodyGuard=]. Stars everywhere!
* HeelFaceTurn
* InconsistentDub: In 5, he's renamed Dusk.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: It's nice to see that even in this advanced age, ninjas can and will still exist.
* PunchClockVillain: Dark and [=ShadowMan=] are mercenaries.

!!Princess Pride
-> In the games, she is said to be the ruler of a small island nation known as Creamland that gained considerable power due to being one of the first to use the new internet technology. However, the larger and more powerful nations soon caught up and surpassed Creamland in terms of political power, which motivates her to join Gospel, attempt to sabotage an international Net Official meeting and kill everyone involved. She operates [=KnightMan=].EXE. Voiced by Creator/JillianMichaels in the dub.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the anime, she was heroic to begin with.
* BadassPrincess: In the anime especially, though she's pretty willing to put her own ass on the line in the games as well.
* BlondesAreEvil: In the second game.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Unless they are crazy jealous of other succeeding nations.
* HeelFaceTurn: In BN 5. A change so extreme that it basically ''flips her whole personality from BN 2'' out of nowhere.
* OutOfFocus: Gets the least amount of screentime in Stream compared to the other Duo Crest characters. While Dingo became a regular character, Dark and Tesla were recurring villains and Jasmine Nenji and Charlie got 3 to 4 focus episodes each, Pride only had 1. And once she can Cross Fuse she still frequently missed out on some battles because of her ruling duties.
* RebelliousPrincess
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* SameCharacterButDifferent: You will be surprised if your first encounter with Pride is the fifth game or the anime. The second game version of her is really mean towards everyone.
* SpoiledSweet

-> Loyal retainer of Princess Pride, and saddled with a rather admirable case of MyMasterRightOrWrong.

* TheBrute: Shares this position with [=MagnetMan=] in Gospel until he becomes TheBigGuy of Team Colonel alongside [=TomahawkMan=].
* EpicFlail: You know an attack's awesome when it's called [[AwesomeMcCoolName Royal Wrecking Ball.]]
* GentleGiant: When not in combat, he's obviously a NiceGuy despite his imposing stature.
* HeelFaceTurn: He worked with Gospel in [=MMBN2=], but only because his Princess did. In the fifth game, he joins Team Colonel alongside the Princess.
* MightyGlacier
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Despite claiming to have no ability to question his orders, he clearly had moral problems with being on the villainous team in the second game, but elected to remain loyal to his mistress. He joins Team Colonel by the same logic, though he joins the team rather willingly.
* StoneWall: His [=StoneBody=] condition makes all damage inflicted to him reduced to 1. Like most [=BN2=] Navis he is only vulnerable to attacks when he's attacking (or jumping forward).

!!Gauss Magnus ''(Gauss Magnets)''
-> Leader of his own company and an outward success story, he has some very bitter issues regarding having grown up poor, which is why he's a member of Gospel in the second game.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To [[spoiler: Count Zap]] in the anime which is why he [[spoiler: joined the WWW]]. Kind of subverted when [[spoiler: Elec Man and Count Zap]] help Mega Man delete Magnet Man.
* KarmaHoudini: Double subversion: In Stream, he gets sentenced to prison for 931 years, but Tesla leads the Neo WWW to break him and Magnet Man out.
* OverprotectiveDad: Of his daughter Tesla, in the anime, albeit played for laughs.
* TheDragon: Implied to be one for Gospel.
* TheUnfavorite: Mentions his brother Jack [[spoiler: Count Zap]] got adopted into a rich family, while he had to dig himself out of poverty the hard way, and he's rather bitter about it. Inverted in the anime [[spoiler: where his brother is apparently the unfavorite, resulting him joining the WWW]].

-> Gauss (and later his daughter Tesla's) Navi.

* BarrierWarrior: His specialty in the fifth Battle Network game.
* BattleButler: Acts this way to both Gauss and Tesla.
* TheBrute: Shares this position with [=KnightMan=] in Gospel until he becomes TheBigGuy of Team Protoman alongside [=NapalmMan=].
* DopplegangerAttack: his SignatureMove, the North South(NS) Tackle.
* HeelFaceTurn: A reluctant one in the fifth game, though he remains loyal because Tesla explicitly orders him to be, hence he joins Team Proto Man alongside her.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Will do what Gauss or Tesla order, good or ill, without complaint, even if it means TeethClenchedTeamwork with Mega Man as a member of Team Protoman.
* ShockAndAwe: Electric elemental due to his magnetism theme.

!!Leader of Gospel ([[Anime/MegaManNTWarrior Kid Grave]])/[[spoiler:Sean Obihiro ''(Shun Obihiro)'']]

* BlackEyesOfEvil: [[spoiler: Of course, like the rest of that appearance, it's just a hologram.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler: The first time you see him in the games, he's on the same plane that a fellow Gospel agent was planning to attack. In fact, he can be seen even earlier in the Netopian Airport terminal.]]
** And after you defeat said Gospel agent, he vanishes from the plane.
* [[spoiler: AbusiveParents: Or rather, foster parents.]]
* [[spoiler: TheAtoner: In 3.]]
* [[spoiler: BrattyHalfPint[=/=]InsufferableGenius: His Manga characterization. It really grinds on Chaud's nerves.]]
* [[spoiler: BreakTheCutie: His backstory.]]
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn: He joins forces to help Chaud and Raika defeat the darkloids in the {{Manga}}. He also seems to have repented in [=MMBN3=] and actually snaps Lan out of brief HeroicBSOD.]]
* [[spoiler: ImprobableAge: Leader of a dangerous criminal organization at ten years old.]]
* NoMouth: [[spoiler: Although it turns out to be part of a holographic disguise.]]
* WalkingSpoiler
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Seriously, when a kid says "My computers are more honest than people", you know he's broken.]]
* [[spoiler: [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Silver Hair]]]]

-> The main antagonists for the fourth and fifth game, along with the Axess season of the anime. Nebula is mostly made up of autonomous Navis, and would rather take over the internet instead of causing its destruction. They experiment with and distribute Dark Chips throughout the internet, which grant Navis incredible power but often results in the Navi's soul being tainted in various ways, including and not limited to disobeying any possible operators and an addiction to Dark Chip usage.

!!Dr. Regal
-> The leader of Nebula, Dr. Regal seeks to take over the world and plunge it into an age of evil and darkness. In the fourth game, he attempts to achieve this by taking over Duo's Comet. In the fifth game, he attempts to activate Soul Net, which links humans to the internet where he can tamper with their emotions. His Navi is [=LaserMan=].EXE.

* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: Leaves Lan to ponder this in the epilogue of the fourth game.
* AvengingTheVillain: In the games, he's the son of Dr. Wily.
* BeardOfEvil: In the fifth game.
* BigBad: Games 4 and 5. ''Axess'' season and TheMovie.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: [[DefiedTrope Mocks]] any [[BlackAndWhiteMorality conjecture of heroicism]].
* CardCarryingVillain: Makes absolutely no bones about his willingness to do horrible things to people.
** WhatTheHellHero: Challenges the heroes' simplistic views of [[BlackAndWhiteMorality Good and Evil]] during the climax of the fourth game. Accuses Chaud of slaughtering countless "criminal" Net Navis during his tenure as an Official, and accuses Lan of being similar when he hunted down the Net Navi responsible for severing global network connections...which almost certainly establishes him as a {{Troll}}, since the Heel Navi in question, who had to have a good idea of the magnitude of his actions, ''attempted kamikaze suicide'' when he was cornered.
* CatchPhrase: He always makes sure to include the word "evil" in his dialogue.
* ChekhovsGunman: He's always been the head of Nebula, but that was largely an issue on the back burner of the story until late in the 4th game. In the 5th game he actually has a plot to enact.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Does this to Dr. Hikari in the fifth game.
** EyeScream: In the movie, he kidnaps Yuichirou and performs laser eye surgery on him to extract the last remaining data for Nebula Grey.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Yuichirou bowls the good doctor over in the ending of the fifth game.
* EvilerThanThou: To Shade Man in the anime.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: In the anime. He also very clearly commits suicide by falling backwards off a roof in the fourth game, though the fifth reveals he lived. In the manga, he makes a successful escape with his personal submarine... until Bass catches up with him and destroys it wholesale.
** Inflicts one on [=ShadeMan=] in ''Axess''. It is not fun at all watching Shade screaming as his arms are ripped off. Even less pleasant is when he gets hit point blank with [[LightIsNotGood LaserMan's]] Cross Laser, which actually manages to explode ''out of him''.
* HeelFaceTurn: Yuichirou urges him to do this, specifically returning to the mouth of ''[[{{Determinator}} an erupting Mt. Fuji]]'' to offer him a LastSecondChance. While his mind reels at this ([[EvilCannotComprehendGood and with good reason]]), Regal [[SubvertedTrope feebly manages to refuse]]. [[spoiler:And then [[DoubleSubverted Papa Wily Shows Up]] and gives him a Bright Slap to remember. [[LaserGuidedAmnesia Or Not]].]]
* HumansAreBastards: His motivating principle, derived from society's rejection of his father. His plot in 5 basically amounts to him putting every human mind through hell and watching as the world tears itself apart.
* InTheBlood: A revenge-driven mad scientist? Yeah, he [[TurnOutLikeHisFather Turned Out Like His Father]], alright. Ancestry is a recurring theme between him and Yuichirou.
* KilledOffForReal: In the anime, Duo ages him to death as punishment for his actions in Axess and the ([[NoExportForYou undubbed]]) movie.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:His fate at the end of the fifth game.]]
* LightIsNotGood: While his navi Laser Man has light-based powers, he is just as evil as his operator.
* MindRape: This is basically what happens to people caught up in his version of Soul Net.
* NotThatKindOfDoctor: Shows up as a subtle play in the manga - Dr. Regal, after having been revealed as infiltrating the Ameroupan/Netopian army with Darkloids, introduces himself as "assisting with a [[EldritchAbomination birth]]."
* OneWingedAngel: At the end of ''Stream'', he transforms into a huge serpent with a human head. [[spoiler:Not that it avails him much...]]
* ShadowArchetype[=/=]EvilCounterpart: Of Yuichirou. World-renowned scientist responsible for major leaps in technology? Check. Child of a likewise famous scientist? Check. Develop technology intended to benefit mankind? Ha ha ha '''[[HumansAreBastards no]]'''.
* ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil: His ultimate goal.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: One actually went out of its way to point out who the villain was.
* TheUnfavorite: His father Dr. Wily pays more attention to his deceased friend's son and neglected his own.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Well, almost. Hailing from an infamous military state, he's universally recognized as one of the most dangerous men on the planet, but in the face of imminent doom, Yuichirou and the assembled are... not entirely unwilling to work with him.

!!Ms. Yuri ''(Yuriko Ozono)''
-> Ms. Mari's long-lost twin sister, and an high-ranking member of Nebula (in the anime). In the games, she's a former member of WWW instead.

* AscendedExtra: Her role for the anime has been greatly expanded.
** Heck, she got her own design. In the games, Yuri was a [[PaletteSwap recolour]] of Mari.
* ButtMonkey: During her time as a villain in Axess, particularly in the undubbed episode where Mega Man obtains Wind Soul where the characters trample her and in the Mist Man episode she falls into the same traps Lan and Mayl did earlier and even plays keep away with Mist Man's lamp. She's even had a few comedic anime expressions such as sweatdrops when she realizes Mr. Gauss mistook Ms. Mari for her.
* DarkActionGirl: In the anime.
* DarkIsEvil: In the anime's Axess season.
* DarkIsNotEvil: During the end of Axess when she stops Dark Proto Man from killing Ms. Mari.
* [[spoiler:DisneyDeath]]: In the anime.
* HeelFaceTurn: In both the games and anime.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Operator of Needleman.EXE in the anime.
* SinisterShades: In the anime.
* SpikesOfVillany: When she becomes Cross Fusion Needle Man (the English dub even changes Needle Man's name to Spike Man). Subverted in Stream.

!!Nebula Gray
-> A pure manifestation of evil that appeared within Dr. Regal's Dark Chip Factory during the fifth game.

* ChainedByFashion: Several chains extend from its body, and it has manacles on its wrists.
* TheCorruption: An embodiment of darkness.
* EldritchAbomination: The embodiment of the [[TheHeartless darkness of humanity's soul]], which Dr. Regal planned to install into the Soul Server, a network interfacing with every human mind on the planet.
* FinalBoss: Of the fifth game.
* UltimateEvil: The ElementalEmbodiment of [[MadeOfEvil Dark Power]]. Or, rather, Dark Power and Dark Chips are the processed forms of Nebula Gray's essence.
** [[ThisWasHisTrueForm Really just a small computer-orb]] that can manipulate Dark Power like nobody's business. The giant beast people call Nebula Grey is simply the amalgamation of D. Power being controlled. When active the [[AttackItsWeakPoint core]] spouts blue flame, and when inactive, it simply resembles a [[SleepModeSize mechanical orb]].
*** Note - this varies between adaptations. The orb is the weak point in the games only. In the anime, [[FusionDance Bass-Cross MegaMan]] just whales on the thing wholesale, and we only get a glimpse of the core after Nebula Gray's body has been reduced to gray goo (no, not [[{{Nanomachines}} that kind]]). In the manga, however, Nebula Gray is a totally self-integrated [[EldritchAbomination creature]]. Made of Dark Power, certainly, but the beast is indeed a beast.

-> An autonomous Navi known as a Darkloid, navis who are infused with power from a Dark Chip. He first appeared in 4 as an independent Navi who attacked other Navis to consume their energy and kidnapped Roll.EXE to have her for "dessert". He started out invincible to all attacks, which pushed Lan and Mega Man into using the Dark Chip he had dropped earlier. As he died he laughed that Mega Man was now infused with evil from the Dark Chip. He returns in 5 as part of Nebula, occupying the Net and helping towards the activation of Soul Net. In Axess Shade Man was the leader of the Darkloids, turning a portion of the Net into their fortress. They were tasked by Nebula to perform missions in exchange for Dark Chips, which he discovered later would lead to their deletion. He was betrayed by Dr. Regal and his Navi Laser Man and later attacked them toward the end of the series, but was deleted by the [[FusionDance cross fusion]] of human and Navi.

* AnimalMotif: Bats, par for the course.
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: States in 5 that so long as there is Dark Power, the Darkloids will always come back from deletion.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: In the anime, he's the leader of the Darkloids and by far the strongest.
* BeardOfEvil: Has a thin goatee and mustache.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: His Noise Crush attack lets him step into your side of the field regardless of how many spaces you have.
* TheDragon: To Dr. Regal in the anime.
** DragonWithAnAgenda: Partway through the series before the doublecross.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Having both your arms violently ripped off and an explosion tear you apart from the inside isn't exactly approved for younger audiances. Hence the 4Kids censoring most of it out.
** He's even MORE brutally eviscerated in the manga. [[BewareTheNiceOnes By MegaMan himself]], no less.
* HandicappedBadass: In Axess, Cross Fusion Mega Man and Proto Man unleash a double Program Advance on him. All it does is destroy one of his arms and when he's forced back into cyber space, he doesn't have much trouble beating up Mega Man and Proto Man. In Stream, after Regal rips both of his arms off, but before he gets deleted, he's accidentally brought into the future and proves to once again be a challenge for Cross Fusion Mega Man and Proto Man until Ms. Yuri intervenes and later literally disarms Asteroids Flash Man and Beast Man.
* HopelessBossFight: The first two fights with him in the fourth game, you can't hurt him with anything besides Dark Chips in the 2nd fight.
* [[IAmAHumanitarian I'm a Navitarian]]
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: With his intended "dessert" Roll.
* MakeMeWannaShout: His Noise Crush ability.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Ishihara stated he had an image of Nobunaga Oda in his mind when designing Shademan.EXE
* OurVampiresAreDifferent


-> The new commander of Nebula and a Darkloid. Appears as the boss of the fifth liberation mission. In the anime, he is the second in command of the new Darkloids led by Dark Rockman.

* AdaptationalBadass: While the fight against him in the game may not be a challenge (aside from that unavoidable desperation attack), this is completely inverted in the anime where he is powerful enough to undo [=MegaMan's=] and Lan's Cross Fusion.
* DesperationAttack: When his hitpoints get low, [=CosmoMan=] vanishes into a space portal and proceeds to spam the battlefield with almost unavoidable planet spheres.
* FlatCharacter: Like his predecessor [=LaserMan=], aside from wanting to implunge the world in darkness, has little to no personality.
* MasterOfDisguise: In the manga he manages to disguise as Bass, and did a pretty good job with that until he did something the real Bass would never do [[spoiler:Asking for help.]]
* SpaceMaster
* SpamAttack: CF Tesla uses this to defeat Cosmo Man for good.

-> A member of the autonavis known as Darkloids. He wishes to turn his are of the Net into a Nebula ski resort. In all his incarnations he's depicted as the weakest.

* {{Acrofatic}}: Surprisingly for guy of that shape [=BlizzardMan=] is pretty fast and it can be a pain to fight him.
* BadassAdorable: Is the most adorable of the four Darkloids in the game and anime.
* DemotedToExtra: [=BlizzardMan=] instead of having his other post-game areas he shares one with Cosmoman...''as a sub boss''.
* AnIcePerson
* TooDumbToLive: See Cloud Man's entry.

-> Member of the Autonavis known as Darkloids. He speeks in Greek terms and by far the more crueler of them. He is also responsible for capturing [=MegaMan's=] and [=ProtoMan's=]/Colonel and turning them into Darkloids.

* TheBrute: [=CloudMan=] is the powerhouse of the four Darkloids.
* {{Jerkass}}: Doesn't help that he is the most successful Darkloid in the game (kidnapping [=MegaMan=] and deleting three of the party members on separate occasions) he gloats about it to Lan, bringing him to angst mode as a result.
* FinalSeasonCasting: His design was rushed once the developers realized there were three Darkloids in the games instead of four.
* FourIsDeath: The fourth and most powerful of the Darkloids.
* ShockAndAwe: Elec-type Navi.
* SuicideAttack: He blows himself up to take out [=MegaMan, Meddy/ToadMan and ProtoMan/Colonel=], while he fails to delete the former names mentioned, he succeeds in getting the team leader who is then revived into a Darkloid for the next area, and as a insult to injury he is a Darkloid and can constantly be revived.
* TooDumbToLive: In the anime, he and Blizzardman decided to freeze the room where Lan and a good number of his friends were at, unfortuantly those friends consisted of, a wood-element navi an element Cloudman is weak against, a fire element navi, an Asteroid navi obsessed with explosions and one with with superior strength. Combined with [=MegaMan, CloudMan=] barely manages to escape as Blizzardman is deleted.
* MasterOfDisguise

!![=LarkMan=].EXE (''[=Swallowman=].EXE'')
-> In the games, a wild Navi that believes he is as free as a bird for having no operator. In the anime, a Darkloid under the command of Dark Rockman.
* AscendedExtra: In the games he is an optional boss with little personality except he loves being an autonavi, in the anime is a Darkloid that serves Dark Rockman, and manages to live for a while.
* LawOfConservationOfDetail: Averted. While he has a unique design and can be fought [=LarkMan=] bears no importance to the fifth game's plot.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Replaces Shademan.EXE as the fourth Darkloid since he has already been deleted.
* FlatCharacter: Doesn't really have much of a personality except that he loves to be free.


[[folder:Duo's Comet]]
-> Duo is said to be an advanced Navi from a universe far away, created to test and judge life across space and punish said life if they are deemed to be evil. His ultimate method of punishment involves slamming his comet into a planet. He arrives to judge humankind in the fourth game and in the anime season Stream.

* AGodIAm: Never outright stated, but seeing as he thinks he's the right to destroy entire planets based his judgement of them as evil, he defiantly qualifies, [[spoiler: especially in the anime where that's shown to be a self-appointed role.]]
* CosmicEntity
* DeusEstMachina
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: In the games, Lan and Mega Man actually defeat him in combat.
* {{Expy}}: Of Comicbook/{{Galactus}}, and [[Creator/MarvelComics The Cel]][[CosmicEntity est]][[Creator/JackKirby ials]]. His overall look, and the fact he has a herald (Slur) in the Anime, recalls more Galactus, but his tendency to judge whole planets, and a more cybernetic nature, harkens more to The Celestials. Also of course one of the original [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic D]][[VideoGame/MegaMan8 uo]].
* FinalBoss: Of the fourth game.
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini]]: Anime only. [[spoiler: Despite threatening to destroy the Earth and destroying his own planet he gets away with everything he did.]]
* [[HumanoidAbomination Navigational Abomination]]
* OutsideContextVillain: He isn't evil per se, but he's still a threat completely separate from the rest of the game, having nothing to do with any of the other characters except that they're on the planet he's going to destroy.
* PhysicalGod: Taken UpToEleven in the anime, where he is invincible.
* [[spoiler:RestoredMyFaithInHumanity]]: His final fate in the game.
* [[spoiler:TurnedAgainstTheirMasters]]: [[spoiler:Only in the Anime, where the first planet he judged and destroyed, was the one of his creators. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], that he killed the navigators of his world too. Althrough in the finale of Stream, he also tried persuading the navis to abandon their operators, so he also played it straight.]]
* [[spoiler:TheVoice]]: [[spoiler:He's the one who tells you about chaos unisons and gives you chips themed after his attacks from the fourth game in Battle Network 5.]]

-> An anime-only character, Slur is a servant of Duo, although she has a few agendas of her own regarding humankind.

* AmbiguousGender: While fansubs use female pronouns for the character, Slur's appearance and voice are androgynous, and there's no concrete reference to "her" gender in the Japanese version, or English official materials for that matter. It's possible that Slur was intended to be a genderless being like Serenade.
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: Nobody is phased by her death.]]
* {{Badass}}: You know you're this when you [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] ''Bass'' of all Navi's. Later, she fights Mega Man, Proto Man, Colonel, and Search Man ''at once''. [[spoiler:They pretty much get their asses handed to them.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Everytime somebody tries to fight her ends in this, part of why fans hate her [[spoiler: but she's thankfully on the receiving end of one from Bass.]]
* DarkActionGirl
* TheDragon: To Duo.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: [[spoiler: Bass impales her with his "hand".]]
* HumansAreBastards: And so, she thinks it is her duty to destroy them.
* InvincibleVillain: She never loses, ever. Part of the reason for ''Stream'' being considered SeasonalRot. [[spoiler:Thankfully, she's finally killed by Bass.]]
* KnightTemplar: A particularly evil one.
* LightIsNotGood: Most of her attacks are light-based, but don't expect anything good from her.
* NighInvulnerable: Prior to [[spoiler: Bass killing her]] she appeared indestructible.
* NoSell: To '''EVERYTHING'''. Even getting hit with three Program Advances at once didn't phase her.
* NotSoInvincibleAfterAll: After being featured prominently easily defeating anybody who tried to fight her [[spoiler: Stream's finale has Bass taking sweet revenge on her for an earlier defeat.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* ShockAndAwe: Some of her attacks are electricity-based.
* TheSociopath: As bad as Duo was, she's even worse, having some standards he has regarding fair play when judging a planet, she has none if she had her way she's destroy the Earth herself.
** MoralSociopathy
* TreacherousAdvisor: She is unconditionally loyal to Duo, but she's actively trying to sway him into deciding that humans are not worthy to live.


!'''[[WalkingSpoiler Here there be spoilers! You have been warned.]]'''

!!Bass.EXE ''(Forte.EXE)''
-> In the games, he was created by Dr. Cossack around the same time that Alpha was, and he was designed to be the world's first autonomous Navi (that is, a Navi that can function without an operator). However, he was blamed for causing bugs in Alpha's system, and several Navis were sent to delete him. He escaped into the deepest parts of the internet, but not without a scar. In the anime, he is a reincarnation of Pharaoh Man.EXE. He possesses one of the three Ultimate Programs, and seeks to take the other two from Mega Man and Proto Man. Bass has a hatred for humankind in both versions. Voiced by MattHill in the dub.

* AdaptationalBadass: Bass in the classic series was not harmless by any means, but as a boss he wasn't anything special, and despite being TheDragon he acted as little more than another minion for Wily. Here, he's far and away the toughest foe of each game and when the games started to get his characterization down he firmly establishes himself as Megaman's strongest enemy.
* AllEncompassingMantle
* ArmCannon: Two of them just like his classic incarnation. In his first appearance, all his attacks are down with them.
* {{Badass}}: One simply cannot spell "badass" without Bass! Even in an internet where digital [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] exist, he is still Megaman's most powerful enemy.
* BeamSpam[=/=]MoreDakka: Air Burst. Bass doesn't need to aim, he just needs to hit you! ([[ThatOneBoss And odds are,]] [[ThatOneAttack he will.]])
* BloodKnight: Especially in the Manga.
* BonusBoss: In every single game.
* CastingAShadow: Starting the fourth game, he starts using darkness type attacks, creating a {{BFS}}, a pair of saws that are laughably easy to dodge because he never fires them down [=MegaMan's=] middle row, and a ''Franchise/DragonBall'' style giant energy sphere.
* ChestInsignia: Concealed by his cape, it's marred by the glowing scar he received during his attempted deletion by Sci Lab.
* DamageSpongeBoss: While having a shit load of health is standard for him, his Bass [=XX=] incarnations have so much is possible to exhaust a chip folder before killing him.
* DeathIsCheap: He dies or is at least defeated several times in each game (though his defeats aren't always depicted as killing him), but he keeps coming back and survives even beyond the encounter with him in the sixth and final game. Due to his ability to recover from near-death due to his Get Ability program, it may actually be impossible to completely destroy him. The only time he might have come died is when he was absorbed by Alpha, but Gospel saved him.
* DeflectorShields: His iconic Life Aura blocks all direct damage until the player hits him with a attack strong enough to break it down. In the fourth and fifth games, Bass [=XX=] (if you hack him out of the game code to come play) uses Black Barrier instead.
* [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Did You Just Punch Out Bass?]]: Yes, you did. And each time (''over twenty!'') is worth it.[[note]]One fight in the first game; an encounter in Network Transmission, and he leaves after you dispel his barriers; a fight against two clones (though the second mutates into Gospel, so you can discount that if you choose), and a fight against the real thing and his [=DX=] random encounter in the second (that's at least four); a fight against him near the end of the third game (ignoring the Hopeless Boss Fight earlier), and rematches against his GS and Omega forms in the post-game (three more make seven); he appears as the Final Boss in Battle Chip Challenge and as the Bonus Boss at the farthest end of the secret training area (eight and nine); he has a Bonus Boss encounter and an Omega random encounter in the fourth game (eleven); he's also the final boss in 4.5 (twelve); the fifth game is weird: most players won't encounter him until the end of the Nebula Area, and then it's actually a summoned apparition (this is the Bass ''Beta'' fight), but there are two secret encounters (Bass and Bass ''Alpha'') for players who have activated Bass Cross functionality, plus the Omega random encounter (sixteen); on top of that, the fourth and fifth games have buried data for Bass [=XX=] that you'll probably have to hack the game to encounter (eighteen); and finally, there are a final three fights in the sixth game against Bass, Bass [=SP=], and Bass [=BX=](twenty-one).[[/note]]
* EnemyMine: With Mega Man, in the movie.
** In the third game, he has a very reluctant team up with Wily.
* {{Expy}}: To the original Bass
* FusionDance: [=BassGS=], from 3, is the result of doing this with [[AnimalisticAbomination Gospel.]] It's also a MythologyGag, since in the [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic classic series]], Gospel (aka [[DubNameChange Treble]]) was Bass's counterpart to Rush.
* HopelessBossFight: When he's actually fought as as part of the story in the third game, there's no way of getting rid of his [=LifeAura=] and thus he cannot be harmed. Even battle chips and abilities that grant invincibility won't help, as his attacks in the fight ignore it.
* HumansAreBastards: What he believes.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: What he did in the last episode of ''Stream'' would have been truly despicable... except he did it to ''[[TheSociopath Slur]]'', so it's awesome!
** Then there's the moment where he kills Dr. Regal in the manga by somehow blowing up the submarine he was escaping in.
* MisanthropeSupreme
* [[HumanoidAbomination Navigational Abomination]]: Once a normal [=NetNavi=], he's become [[PersonOfMassDestruction much,]] [[PhysicalGod MUCH]] [[StayingAlive more]] than that.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: He considers himself this to Mega Man in the manga after Mega Man defeats him for the first time, which leads him to [[EnemyMine interfere and actually help Mega Man]] against several future villains, most prominently Nebula Grey and The combined form of Falzer and Greger at the very end of the final arc.
* PetTheDog: While he's otherwise cruel and inhumane in the games, he doesn't kill Cossack despite certainly being able to. Apparently he still has at least some sympathy towards his creator.
** [[PetTheDog Pet the Lupine Abomination]]: Out of all of his Bug Fragment-based knockoffs, he gets along very well with Gospel, which does say something since creating copies of him in first place really pissed him off.
* PhysicalGod: Within the Cyberworld, anyway.
* PowerCopying: His Get Ability program, which allows him to take on the abilities of any virus, navi, or program he deletes (though the only time we see this used in gameplay is the sixth game where he used battlechips during the battle). Ironic that ''Bass'' would be the only one with what is supposed to be Mega Man's signature power.
* SoreLoser: Just like [[TheRival Silver]] from ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'', he doesn't take defeat well and will constantly berate you for being a pathetic weakling. ''Despite you having defeated him several times.''
* ScarsAreForever
* SpannerInTheWorks: Proves to be a huge in 3 game, preventing the GigaFreeze program from being used on Alpha since he turned out be another ChosenOne who could touch it.
* StayingAlive: At the end of 3, he's consumed by [[EldritchAbomination Alpha]]. However, in TheStinger, he's revived by [[AnimalisticAbomination Gospel,]] who fights alongside him as ([[RecurringElement what else]]) a BonusBoss.
* StealthPun: A fake Bass in the second game: "Battle is my forte!"
* UltimateLifeForm: A digital version.
* [[WorldsStrongestMan Worlds Strongest Navi]]: His final form almost always the single most powerful boss in the games, and if he's not canonically the most powerful Navi in the series, he's only beaten by Mega Man.
* WorthyOpponent: To Mega Man in the Manga.

!![=LifeVirus=] ''([=DreamVirus=])''
-> A supervirus created by Wily in an attempt to destroy the internet in the first game, it had a variety of destructive attacks, but the one thing that made this virus so dangerous was its usage of the [=LifeAura=], which was a powerful protective aura with no elemental weaknesses.

* AdorableAbomination: The Scuttles are kinda cute, but it must always be remembered that they're the remnants of the [=LifeVirus=].
* BackFromTheDead: It's recreated in ''Network Transmission'' as [=LifeVirus=]-R, after being combined with the Zero Virus.
* BigCreepyCrawlies: Both the [=LifeVirus=] itself, and its Scuttle virus brood.
* FlunkyBoss
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Unlike all the other final and bonus bosses in the series (other than Alpha), the [=LifeVirus=] appears to be mindless.
* KingMook: Treated as the highest possible achievement of any virus; all other final bosses fit in their own categories.
* MadeOfEvil: 100% Viral and... well, [[GenericDoomsdayVillain who knows if it 's lovin' it.]]
* NonMaliciousMonster: The Life Virus seems to lack a mind any more developed than any other virus. Wily intends to use it as a vehicle to control military satellites.
* WaveMotionGun: Although the attack doesn't have a name.
* WalkingSpoiler: [[LateArrivalSpoiler Unless you play Network Transmission.]]

-> A virus/Navi hybrid of sorts in the Network Transmission game.

* Badass: He's based on the biggest badass of the entire franchise, so yes.
** BadassBaritone[=/=]EvilSoundsDeep
* DarkIsNotEvil: He is a virus. Not an infected Navi, a full-blown computer virus that gained a soul. Even he's not sure how that happened, and [[TragicMonster he's not too pleased about the problems he causes just by existing.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of Zero from the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series, of course - one of the few characters (if not the only one) to be a reference to it.
* HumanoidAbomination: He's a [=NetNavi=], all right, but he's purely viral in nature.
* {{Irony}}: The digital version of Zero looks more robotic than the reploid original.
* LargeAndInCharge: The largest humanoid Navi in the game, he's easily four times the size of [=MegaMan=]. You'd be forgiven for thinking he's the BigBad before he starts talking.
* LaserBlade: [[IconicItem Of course.]]
* RapunzelHair: What doubles as a cape.
* TragicMonster: "I didn't ask to be born a virus."
* WalkingSpoiler[=/=]UnexpectedCharacter: Come on, did YOU expect an ''X'' character to become a Navi?
* WholePlotReference: His story is nigh-on identical to that of the actual Zero: Created by Wily, spread a dangerous virus, fought someone intended to hunt him down, had a HeelFaceTurn, proves pivotal to the defeat of the BigBad.

-> A multibug organism created by the [=NetMafia=] Gospel, in a failed attempt to recreate Bass. The digital counterpart to Bass's CanineCompanion, although much more powerful...kinda like Bass.

* AdaptationalBadass: Much like his partner, Gospel got a striking power boost in the Battle Network series. His is even more visible going from a mere CanineCompanion to a FinalBoss.
* AnimalisticAbomination
* BreathWeapon: Of all four elements, even. [[MST3KMantra Don't ask how WoodBreath works.]]
* CanineCompanion: Although he's less of a pet and more of a mutually beneficial partner.
* CanisMajor: He's pretty dang huge.
* CloneDegeneration: Sort of. Gospel is a failed copy of Bass that couldn't hold its shape.
* EldritchAbomination: As far the Net is concerned. It's presence means it will eventually multiply in a swarm of other bugs that will overrun and control the net.
* FinalBoss: Of the second game.
* FusionDance: See Bass's entry above.
* IntelligibleUnintelligible: Can we understand him? No. Can Bass understand him? Yes. All the worse for us.
* SavageWolves: Any attempt to recreate Bass is going to be one of these.
* TheWormThatWalks: Gospel is a lupine conglomeration of Bug Fragments.

!!Alpha ''(Proto)''
-> A prototype network of the internet, it was riddled with bugs that were thought to be of Bass's doing, but were later discovered to originate from Alpha itself. Alpha had become sentient, and its bugs began to absorb networks and causing affected devices to malfunction. All links to the internet were taken down for several weeks while Alpha was quarantined and sealed. Wily seeks to release Alpha in the third game, in which everything by then had some sort of link to the internet, to destroy the world.

* BlobMonster: Some fans think that it's the {{expy}} to the Bio-devils from the original series. With good reason, too.
* ChekhovsGun: First appeared as a harmless little cube guarded by four doors. ''In plain sight'', even.
* DesperationAttack: Two of them. One might as well be a [[NukeEm Nuke]], the other might as well be an electrical {{BFG}}.
* DubNameChange: This one is worth pointing out: it was named Proto in the original, but renamed to Alpha in the dubs to avoid confusion with [=ProtoMan=].
* EldritchAbomination: It's a prototype of the Internet.
* FinalBoss: Of 3.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: It isn't even intelligent, having the mental capacity of an ''amoeba.''
* MeaningfulName
* NonMaliciousMonster: Compare the Life Virus, which at least has the brutish intelligence of virus-kind. Alpha is basically just a giant amoeba set to "Eat".
* OneSteveLimit: Proto is changed to Alpha in the English version to avoid confusion with [=Protoman=](named Blues in the original Japanese).
* PsychoPrototype: For the Internet itself.
* SealedEvilInACan
* WalkingSpoiler: [[RunningGag You get the idea by now.]] It's alluded to throughout Battle Network 3, but its true nature isn't revealed until the end.


* AmbiguousGender: In the original Japanese, [[ShesAManInJapan Serenade is female.]] In English, Serenade is consistently referred to with masculine pronouns. However, according to Capcom, Serenade is intended to be seen as a [[UltimateLifeForm perfect being]] [[NoBiologicalSex without gender.]] In the words of a [[LetsPlay/RoahmMythril certain Let's Player]], it's really up to you.
* AmbiguouslyBrown
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: The leader of the UnderNet, a WretchedHive where rule is determined by power. To drive the point home, Serenade.EXE once took on Bass and won when Megaman in 3's story couldn't even scratch him, though by the post game, it's clear that fusing with Gospel has made him the more powerful one.
* BonusBoss: The last one before the fight with Bass in 3's post game.
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* {{Foil}}: To Forte, both in design and personality. Some fans are quite happy to ship them on these grounds.
* NoBiologicalSex: According to Capcom, but see AmbiguousGender.
* NoPronunciationGuide: It's supposed to be pronounced sair-eh-NAHD.
* OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous: Serenade.EXE, an otherwise normal Net Navi, looks the part, likely to emphasis hir "holy/angelic" feature (and not to mention hir vast powers). Greatly enhanced in the manga adaptation.
* SheIsTheKing: In Japanese. Again, see AmbiguousGender.
* UltimateLifeForm: According to Capcom, although Bass would probably fit the description more accurately.
* YinYangBomb: Possibly, as s/he has powers described as holy and saintly, but Serenade's battlechip is counted as a '''Dark Chip''' in game.

!!Gregar ''(Glaga)''
-> Gregar is the first of the two mythic "Cybeasts" (''Dennoujuu''), along with its counterpart, Falzer. Gregar appeared first, originally forming when a ''huge'' mass of [[AppliedPhlebotinum BugFrags]] combined and became sentient, taking the form of a monstrous wolf. (Years later, the net-mafia Gospel would accidentally enact a corrupted version of this process and produce the Super-Bug Organism). Gregar was wild and uncontrollable, and ended up destroying everything it touched; in response, a scientist created another Cybeast, named Falzer. Unfortunately, the two were too evenly matched and the situation instead worsened. Eventually the humans gave up on salvaging the original network and simply built a new one on top of it, sealing the Cybeasts together in the "Underground" after they were weakened from one of their most violent stalemate clashs. This seal gets broken in the sixth game, when [=CircusMan.EXE=] used stolen Navi lifeforce to empower the Cybeasts to escape their prison. Depending on the version, Gregar either was imprisoned in [=CircusMan's=] body or sealed in [=MegaMan's=] body, where it fights to take over.

* AnimalisticAbomination
* BreathWeapon: Breathes fire in a large area.
* CallBack: Greiga is basically the finished product of a vague plot-thread that was introduced all the way back in ''[=BN2=]'', when Yuichirou first explained that the Gospel beast was a Super-Bug Organism.
* CanisMajor: Compared to [=MegaMan=], Greiga is [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever several stories tall]].
* [[spoiler:FusionDance: With Falzar in the anime, after he wins their fight.]]
* {{Expy}}: Gregar's one to the Battle Network version of Gospel, but in-universe, Gospel is rather his, with a dash of LegacyCharacter.
* MightyGlacier: {{Averted}}, unlike baby brother Gospel, who couldn't move at all in the games. For the monster that specializes in sheer firepower, you would not believe how ''[[LightningBruiser fast]]'' this thing is.
* SealedEvilInACan: Originally Gregar was sealed in the Underground (an old network upon which modern Cyber City's network was built). When he finally escaped, he ended up sealed in one of two new cans, either [=CircusMan=] or [=MegaMan=], depending on the version.
* ShockAndAwe: One of its most dangerous attacks involves an electrical beam breath that hits the entire front row and the entire column in front of it. If Mega Man is struck by this attack, he'll be stunned and left wide open to a variety of other attacks.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Gureiga, Greiga, Greigar, Graga, Grayga, Glaga, Gregar, Graygar, [[RunningGag Grraaaaaaaaaah]]!
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: If he's the one Mega Man contains, he will constantly be trying to get out.

!!Falzar ''(Falzer)''
-> In the games, Falzar was created by Mayor Cain's grandfather, in order to fight and defeat Gregar. This backfired and caused even more damage to the net. Falzar's design is like a phoenix, and uses appropriate wind and fire-based attacks. Both Falzar and Gregar were eventually sealed within the Underground areas located near Centeral Area 3 after one of their battles left both in a weakened state. In the sixth game, the seal is broken and Falzer is revived by Circusman, and depending on the version, Falzar is either captured by Circusman or absorbed by Mega Man.

* AnimalisticAbomination
* DeathFromAbove: One of Falzar's signature attacks involves it flying into the air out of range of any attacks, and flapping its wings to generate wind that sends Mega Man to the back row while trying to hit him with its loose sharp feathers.
* DesperationAttack: Same as above, although replace the wind and feather part with "suddenly rushing down the column and trying to slice [=MegaMan=]'s head off".
* {{Expy}}: Not immediately obvious, but Falzar is one of [[Videogame/MegamanX Sigma]]. Both were created by Dr Cain in their continuities, to fight a growing menace(Maverick Reploids/Gregar), but instead made the problem much worse.
* [[spoiler:FusionDance: With Gregar in the anime, after he loses their fight.]]
* GiantFlyer
* GodzillaThreshold: Falzer was originally created to put a stop to Gregar's rampage, because nothing the humans had was in the same [[SuperWeight weight class]]. Unfortunately, Falzer was unable to actually defeat it, and instead got caught up in a death match stalemate that made things ''worse''.
* LaserGuidedTykebomb: was created for the purpose of defeating Gregar. Big mistake.
* LightningBruiser: Of the two, Falzer specializes in both agility and mobility. Don't count Gregar out, though, and don't call Falzer "weak" unless you want to die.
* NobleBirdOfPrey
* SealedEvilInACan: Originally Falzer was sealed in the Underground. When he finally escaped, he ended up sealed in one of two new cans, either [=CircusMan=] or [=MegaMan=], depending on the version.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: If he's the one Mega Man contains.
