''Novas Aventuras de Mega Man'' (''New Adventures of Mega Man'') is a mid-to-late '90 Brazilian comic featuring the Blue Bomber, Mega Man, and some of his supporting cast and enemies. This is where the overlap between this continuity and that of the games ends.

[[AfterTheEnd It has been thirty years since Dr. Wily took over the world, or at least Brazil,]] and most of the population is either dead or enslaved. Mega Man and Roll were unable to prevent this since they spent those thirty years in power-up capsules. Dr. Light is deceased; the two must fend for themselves in this hostile place.

Thankfully, they quickly make an ally in X, their younger brother who has gone into retirement for unknown reasons, and soon the three of them are officially back in action. Unfortunately, things are only going to get worse from there…

That was the easy part. Unfortunately, this comic had so many {{retcon}}s and [[ContinuitySnarl continuity issues]] that sorting everything out is a bit of a chore. There's also plenty of [[OffModel artwork gaffs,]] since few of the artists chosen to draw for this comic retained many details from the past issues. ''[=NAdM=]'' was produced a bit differently than most other comics; the writers would produce a script, then have fan artists draw it; whoever's was the best would be selected for that issue. (It should be noted that only one artist, Rogerio Hanata, illustrated more than a single issue; also, artists would eventually write the scripts as well.)

The publisher went under before the comic (and another series detailing events post-''X4,'' before ''X5'' was released) was completed, [[LeftHanging leaving many story threads dangling.]]

Not to be confused with the Franchise/ArchieComics ''ComicBook/MegaMan'' comic book, nor the [[ComicBook/DreamwavesMegaMan the short lived comic from Dreamwave,]] and ''definitely'' should not be confused with the {{Manga}}, ''Manga/MegaManMegamix.''

!! This series provides examples of:

* AfterTheEnd: Takes place after Dr. Wily takes over the world.
* AlternateContinuity: One of many.
* AnimationBump: Issue #4 has some of the best art in the comic, particularly with Roll and Dr. Light.
* {{Animesque}}: Depending on the artist.
* ArmedWithCanon: What the whole deal with Princess boils down to --one writer wanted to use her to [[HostileShowTakeover literally take over the comic,]] another writer fired his ass and wrote Princess out.
* ArtShift: Every. Single. Issue. Sometimes multiple times within a single issue -- the second one alone changes artists and styles twice!
* ArtificialHuman: “Project Lazarus,” initiated years before the main events of the comic, involved kidnapping homeless girls from all over UsefulNotes/{{Brazil}} and turning them into robots, for a variety of horrible purposes. [[spoiler: Roll was among them.]] [[spoiler:Kalinka]] was implied to be one as well, since she witnessed her father’s death thirty years ago, yet her age didn’t match this claim. Presumably, this would’ve been brought up again later, had the comic lasted long enough.
* AxCrazy: Princess, at least in the one issue in which she has any prominence (which is the one in which she’s kicked out of the comic). The reason she crossed over into the series’ dimension (long story) was, essentially, to kill everything that wasn’t her and her robotic pet.
* BigBad: Dr. Wily.
* BloodierAndGorier: Even the Japanese versions of the the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' games were tamer with this than this series' instances of this trope.
* BrainUploading: Early on, Roll’s body is temporarily destroyed, and her brothers are forced to move what’s left of her to... a washing machine. She is most displeased, but at least she’s not totally helpless in this state.
* CanonForeigner: ''Tons''. Most notably are Nastenka (Kalinka’s robot bodyguard and friend), Princess, the rebels, Holzenbein and its forces, and the various robots that impede Mega Man, Roll and co.’s progress.
* CerebusSyndrome: The early issues are relatively light-hearted (with [[NightmareFuel the exception of issue 4]]), but later on... well...
* ChivalrousPervert: For all of X’s questionable behaviour around Roll and Nastenka, he’s not a bastard. The same can be said of Mega.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Towards the end, Kalinka just sorta... goes poof. Considering that most of the last issues were one big fight, it might not be unreasonable to assume that she just stayed out of it.
* CliffHanger: [[spoiler: The ending]].
* ClothingDamage: Roll suffers this quite a bit, except for the last few issues, where she's almost completely naked.
* CrapsackWorld: Some of the darker issues show it as this.
* ComicBookAdaptation
* ConceptArt: Some is seen from both the games and the [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan Ruby-Spears cartoon]]. Roll takes her design from the latter.
* CulturalPosturing: While everyone in the comic loves Brazil something fierce, Princess is the most {{egregious}} example; her introduction (on a fake talk show) includes a [[AuthorFilibuster rant]] about how there need to be more comics about Brazilian characters.
* CulturalTranslation: Did you know that the first eight Classic-series games took place in Brazil? And that everyone in the cast’s always lived there?
* CutShort: Sure would’ve been nice to see how this thing would’ve concluded.
* DarkerAndEdgier: [[{{Understatement}} Oh boy]]...
* DefectorFromDecadence
** Dr. Light was one of the scientists involved with Project Lazarus; he wanted no part of it.
** [[spoiler: Protoman was part of “The Six”, the original replacements for all of the world’s robots and Wily‘s present allies, but abandoned them at some undetermined point. Oddly, he was allowed in the group despite not being one of the said replacements, the “Neo-Mavericks“.]]
* DependingOnTheArtist: Taken to [[UpToEleven ludicrous extremes]].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: And ''late'' installment weirdness. Early issues were more lighthearted, though.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Princess' first appearance at the end of issue #2 is her going on a tirade about the Brazilian comic industry and American influence and so forth. In essence, an Establishing Author Moment; see HostileShowTakeover.
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Them The Six]]: because none of them [[spoiler: except Proto]] have actual names.
* EveryoneIsRelated: Okay, Mega Man, Roll, Protoman, and X were a given, but Slasher/Bass and [[spoiler: Zero]]?
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Subverted with Princess.
* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: During the fight with Princess, Mega Man and X launch a buster attack that seems to miss, but really hit the large pillar behind that swung into her
* FakeUltimateHero: Zero. Hyped up as the most powerful of the main characters, double wielding Z-Sabers, getting OhCrap reactions from every villain as soon as he appears. Then, he freaks out when on the receiving end of an attack by the Neo Mavericks (being called Big Ice Cream by Bass while being saved) and goes down in one hit in the final battle. This may be a refference to his GlassCannon status in the games, but still. He was extremely disapointing as a character.
* FanDisservice: Most of issue #4, and for good reason--all of the Project Lazarus victims were underage.
** Roll is rendered almost completely naked in issue #12. This is made ''scary'' by the circumstances in which it happened, and that she's missing half her face due to a buster shot.
* ForTheEvulz: At one point, Mr. Holzenbein [[spoiler: sacrifices some poor girl in a Voodoo ceremony(?)]] for no reason. (At least the comic admits this.)
* FourIsDeath: Mega Man's group is attacked by four powerful robots in issue #10.
* GainaxEnding: [[spoiler:Aliens]] interrupt the final fight scene in the last issue.
* GenreShift: The writers have admitted to changing the genre nearly every issue, because they wanted to see which sort of storylines the readers liked best. As such, one comic could be a flashback to a horrifying backstory about Roll's mind being taken from a young girl whom an evil scientist murdered for his mad robotics experiment, while another could be an anything goes, LargeHam comedy with NoFourthWall.
* GodivaHair: Kalinka has this while naked. Roll...doesn't.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Two of them occur in rapid succession…sort of. The first, [[spoiler: Protoman forcing X and Slasher back onto his side]] is quite delayed (though [[spoiler: Slasher was working more with Protoman than with anyone else]]); the second is something of an odd case. [[spoiler: Protoman is offered the chance to rejoin the Six; Wily slams the door by kicking the Six to the curb.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: The circumstances of Proto’s are vague at best; was he planning on overthrowing Wily, or did he really snap?]]
* HeroesWantRedHeads: Red- (or pink-) haired Nastenka becomes X's love interest. [[BrotherSisterIncest (Maybe because the previous one was Roll...)]]
* HostileShowTakeover: The ''other'' thing this comic is famous for (besides Roll spending a fourth of it stark naked) is Princess, a character whose creator [[WordOfGod outright admitted]] was supposed to kill off everyone else and become the new main character. He got found out and fired, and in Issue #7 Princess is [[LongBusTrip kicked out of the series unceremoniously]].
* HotterAndSexier: For a comic based on ''Mega Man'', there sure are a lot of naked women.
* IdiotHero: Both Mega Man and X, to various degrees. To X's credit, he's the only one to wonder why Kalinka still looks like a teenager if she witnessed her father's death ''thirty years ago''.
* InNameOnly: After a certain point, the comic focuses so much on Roll that calling it "The New Adventures of Mega Man" isn't all that accurate. Could also qualify as an ArtifactTitle or DecoyProtagonist depending on the authors' plans.
* LaResistance: Some human rebels show up in issue #11.
* LeftHanging: [[VideoGame/MegaManX In]] [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends franchise]] [[VideoGame/MegaManZX tradition]]. The publisher went out of business, so don't expect an official continuation.
* TheManBehindTheMan: Apparently, [[spoiler: the aliens]].
* TheMole: [[spoiler:X and Slasher were on Proto’s side the entire time. To their credit, by the time they meet Mega Man and Roll, they’re no longer ''willing'' to be on his side. [[HeelFaceDoorSlam Proto wasn't too happy about that.]]]]
* MoodWhiplash: All over the place.
* MsFanservice: Roll, Kalinka, and Nastenka, particularly post issue 12.
* NoEnding: Due to [[LeftHanging the publisher folding before it was over]].
* OddballInTheSeries: Even without the rampant blood and gore, weird continuity, and naked women running about, this comic has about as much to do with ''Mega Man'' as a history textbook. Needless to say, it tends to be ignored everywhere else in the franchise.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Kalinka, possibly.
* OffModel: Thanks to taking DependingOnTheArtist [[UpToEleven to the extreme]], few details would be carried over from one issue to the next.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Wily spends a lot of the issues just standing around, plotting. [[spoiler: Until the finale]].
%%* OutsideContextProblem: [[spoiler: the Greys]] certainly qualify.
* PoorCommunicationKills: The best explanation for why [[spoiler: Wily abandoned the Six to their fates.]] If they’d just told him that [[spoiler: they weren’t trying to join Proto]]...
* RandomEventsPlot: Thanks to constant {{Genre Shift}}s.
* SeriesContinuityError / ContinuitySnarl: Plenty of smaller ones to go around, but the most notable one has to be issue #12. The actual events--Roll fleeing from her pursuers, even though she was knocked out at the end of issue #11--isn’t too bad, if you assume that she recovered in-between issues. However, her reflections during #12 directly contradict what she (and the reader) have learned only a few issues prior (for example, the manner in which Dr. Light died). You could ''almost'' assume that much of #12 was [[AllJustADream Roll dreaming]], but in the point at which the “dream” ends, one can see that [[spoiler: X and “Slasher” are trussed up along with Mega Man, Roll, Kalinka, and Nastenka, even though not only are they free in #13, but they’re revealed to be traitors]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Kalinka’s name is rendered as “Karinka” here; Dr. Light/Right is Wright, and for a good chunk of time, Wily is Willy.
* TrippyFinaleSyndrome
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Kalinka disappears after #13.
* WhamEpisode: Issue #4, which reveals Roll's backstory.
* WidgetSeries
* TheWorfEffect: Poor Slasher.
* YouDidntAsk: [[spoiler: X knew much, much more than he let on, but never shared this info with his allies. There was a supposedly good reason for this that was never revealed, so it’s probably safe to assume that the info--the exact details of Dr. Light’s death--had traumatized him. Slasher, on the other hand, is ''forced'' to remain vague, as Proto doesn‘t want the others knowing of their plans just yet.]]
