''Mega Man Reawakened'' is a ''Franchise/MegaMan'' fanfic written by [=DestinyZX=], AKA Mega Man RA. The fic is a retelling of one of the author's previous works, ''Mega Man NG'', and is meant to be a tribute to all iterations of Mega Man.

Robert Light was once human, but an attack from Dr. Wily and Bass left him dead. In a last-ditch attempt to save his life, Robert's grandpa, Dr. Light, converted him into a robot. Robert, now named Mega Man, vows to stop Wily and those who would conquer the world.

And it's only the beginning of his story. Torn between the life he knew as a human and the life he knows now, and tormented by anger towards his family and memories of his past, Robert must balance his very human emotions with the pressure of being the world's defender.
