    The Casketts 

Mega Man Volnutt

I analyze every possibility, and I never give up. That's the way I live my life as a digger!
Voiced by Corey Sevier (English, Legends 1), Susan Roman (English, Legends 2), Mayumi Tanaka (Japanese)

The main hero of the game. Mega Man works together with Roll as they investigate ruins as Diggers, Mega Man doing the adventuring while Roll provides info of what to do. His otherwise normal life (for this world, at least) is gradually dissolved, however, as the two games reveal his Mysterious Past.


  • Accidental Pervert: Walked in on Roll while she was changing in Legends 1, and walked in on her while she was in the bathtub in Legends 2.
  • Arm Cannon: Naturally but in this case it's part of his armor instead of his arm.
  • Badass: He's a digger. This means battling Reaverbots as big as he is or larger on a regular basis with an arsenal of rocket launchers, lasers, energy busters, and more.
    • One-Man Army: The Bonne family have a fleet of ships. The Casket family only needs Mega Man himself to fight them. And in the backstory, he fought against all the armies of Elysium and won.
      • In the case of his past life as Mega Man Trigger, wherein he's been implied to have been unfathomably powerful, and even took on the entirety of the Master System by himself.
  • Mega Man Volnutt Can Breathe Underwater: Mega Man has no problems breathing underwater in the Nino Islands dungeon. Justified, as he was given a rebreather before entering that dungeon.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: May or may not have this with Sera. Who knows what's gonna happen after he got stuck in Elysium with her at end of the second game Also...
  • Charged Attack: Had the traditional Charge Shot in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, but not yet in any of the actual Legends games. The design team had an idea on how to implement it, though.
  • Chick Magnet: Roll and Tron are both head-over-heels in love with him but we also have Yuna, and probably Sera.
  • Capcom vs. Whatever: Showed up in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom as a playable character, and even earlier than that was the Japan only Namco Capcom.
  • Covert Pervert: Walks in on a nude Roll once pre game, and has mentioned he wouldn't mind reading some lewd magazines in the first game.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His real name is Mega Man Trigger. He was the closet friend of the Master, the last true human in the world, who upon his death bid Trigger to destroy the Master System that oversaw the operations of the world now. However, he and one of the mother units, Sera, fought to a standstill, forcing him to enter a repair and diagnostics standby mode as he transferred all his memories to Data. He was found in this state by Barrell and raised as Mega Man Volnutt.
  • Expy: Of the original Mega Man. His backstory however makes him something of a counterpart to Zero, given his sealing in statis and revival to fight against the system he helped bring into power.
  • Multi-Ranged Master: His arsenal of weapons is enormous, including a variety of bomb and missile launchers, lasers, and energy projectiles. His Blade Arm even allows him to fire Sword Beams.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Explains his status as the Fandom Bycicle by the Legends fandom.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: The Shining Laser is his most powerful weapon, able to rapidly deplete any opponent's health in seconds (if they let him hold still to aim it).
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: He is the only Mega Man incarnation who doesn't wear a helmet by default. While he can wear one in both games, don't expect to see him wearing one in any other appearances.
  • The Hero: The main good guy, which in his game, means going into dungeons and battling Reavers while the rest support him from the Flutter.
  • Love Triangle: With Roll and Tron. He can be considered the Archie to Roll's Betty and Tron's Veronica.
    • Increased Up to Eleven if you add Yuna and Sera, making it a Love Square of sorts. Yuna is the Betty, and Sera is the Veronica.
  • Oblivious to Love: He is oblivious of any affections directed towards him by any of the female characters.
  • Oh Crap: He gets this reaction in the first game when the first boss suddenly comes back to life and follows him outside of the prelude dungeon.
    Mega Man Volnutt: Back for more!?
  • Macross Missile Massacre: He can do this with the fully upgraded Active Buster.
  • Powered Armor: Mega Man was seen without his regular suit on in the Legends 2 intro cutscene, and he's usually without the series' trademark helmet until the player equips it.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Barrell found him sealed in a ruin, so it's hard to tell how old Volnutt really is. His current form is a result of resting his body to a state of infancy who-knows-how-long ago, after his first bout with Sera left him critically wounded. Even before then he was serving the Master on Elysium as a Purifier Unit for what may have been centuries.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Like other characters in the series it's hard to draw the line between human and robot with him, as Cyborgs are commonplace, but he mostly leans to the latter. Played straight when you find out he isn't a cyborg like everyone else, he's actually a robot built by the Master.
  • Swiss Army Appendage: While his right arm is always equipped with his handy Mega Buster, his left arm can be fitted with such attachments as machine guns, drills, and even the Z-Saber/Zetsabre.
  • Transferable Memory: Trigger stored the memories of his past life, along with any essential files, in Data. Making sure that Sera would not obtain The Master's genetic code.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: Justified due to the above statement but, not exactly trauma.
  • Unwanted Harem: This official art proves it!
  • Worthy Opponent: To both the Bonne Family and Sera. Over the series they develop a grudging respect for him.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He came to blows with Sera in the backstory.

Roll Caskett

Remember the first time you went on a dig, Mega Man? I wasn't used to being a Spotter... and you ended up getting lost underground for three days! Remember? We were lucky that Gramps came to help us... I don't know what I would've done if he hadn't been there...
Voiced by Tracy Ryan (English), Keiko Yokozawa (Japanese)

A passionate spotter and engineer who wishes to find her missing parents after an excavation went wrong in the past. Roll is Mega Man's spotter whenever he goes inside ruins, and she often worries about him just as if he was his brother. Since her grandpa sits behind, Roll gives transportation for the whole team. It seems she holds a bit of a crush with Mega Man, but not as bad as Tron's, which is frequently played for laughs.


Data

Hi! My name's Data! But you already knew that, didn't you? I mean, we've been friends for years, right? Come talk to me if you want to save, ok?
Voiced by Ikue Otani (Japanese)

The crew's mascot found together with Mega Man. He has ever since tagged along with them.


  • Big Damn Heroes: At the end of the first game, he shows up out of nowhere and prevents the extinction of all the people on Kattelox Island
  • Meaningful Name: He acts as your save point. He also holds data on Mega Man's previous life.
  • Neuro-Vault: He's Mega Man's back up unit.

Barrell Caskett

I've been in the digging business a long time, but I haven't been able to find out anything about this island's treasure except legends and myths...
Voiced by George Masswohl (English), Kenichi Ogata (Japanese)

Barrell Casket is Roll's grandfather and avid Digger in his days.


    The Bonnes 

Teisel Bonne

I want another flawless operation, same as the last one! I swear, that treasure will be ours or my name's not Bonne! Let's DO IT!!
Voiced by Rob Smith (English), Tessho Genda (Japanese)

The (most definitely insane) leader of the Bonne Family pirates who are always on the look-out for treasure. He's dead set on trying to stop Mega Man from stopping them, considering him a worthy opponent. He despises Glyde and his gang a lot.


  • Affably Evil: He seems a pretty fun guy to be around, if you're not his enemy.
  • Anime Hair: You don't get spikes like that in the real world.
  • Big Bad: Not of the series mind you, but of a Chinese PC game called Rockman DASH: Adventure to Save the Planet.
  • Distressed Dude: He and Bon Bonne are kiddnapped after Misadventure's first playable segment.
  • Even Evil Has Standards
    Teisel Bonne: We may be pirates, but we're not barbarians. We'll let them keep the toilet paper.
  • Evil Is Petty: He absolutely refuses to get involved with the battle, he left it to Tron and Bon to handle....then a news broadcast of Mega Man's heroism interrupts his favorite TV show. Cue Jaw Drop and eventual outrage.
  • Face Death with Dignity / Graceful Loser: When Mega Man damages the Focke Wolf (a flying mecha currently over the clouds) beyond repair, and everybody thinks the Bonnes are about to fall to their deaths, he comforts Tron by saying, "You tried your best, and sometimes that's not enough, but it's all you can be asked to do. He beat us fair and square. That's how life is sometimes."
  • Guest Star Party Member: He's the person piloting the Gustaf at the start of the game, with Tron acting as his spotter. He's quickly kidnapped. During the final segment of the game, both Tron and Teisel are inside the Gustaf, as shown by them fighting for space on the pause screen.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He tries to be a genuine menace, but is too silly and incompetent to view as one.
  • It's Personal: After the Evil Is Petty moment above, when Mega Man destroys the Marlwolf Tiesel makes it his mission to defeat him as a matter of principle.
  • Large Ham: Tiesel has three tones of voice — talking normally, shouting, and shouting louder. The first does not get used nearly as much as the other two.
  • Loveable Rogue: He may be a pirate but he's so darn funny!
  • Manipulative Bastard: Near the end of Legends 1, he manages to smooth talk Mega Man into letting him go by claiming that he's giving up. He also claims, at the end of The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, that he wanted Lex Loathe to force him to be a miner to work off his debt, because Loathe's mining facility is the location of yet another legendarily huge refractor.
  • No Indoor Voice: "I SAID, clo-o-o-ose the HATCH!"
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: For some reason Teisel has bright red eyes, cybernetics perhaps?
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He looks almost exactly like his father...if it weren't for the red eyes and crazy hairstyle.
  • Worthy Opponent: He considers Mega Man one.

Tron Bonne

Who was that? Wait! Wasn't that the same boy as before? He disabled the Blumebears by himself? I don't understand— whenever I think about him, I get this... funny feeling...
Voiced by Caroly Larson (English), Mayumi Iizuka (Japanese)

The Bonne Family's main engineer. She initially hates Mega Man's guts but eventually forms an unrequited crush on him. However, she tries hard to deny that fact. She tends to love or hate her loyal Servbots who often tend to fail her during missions. She has her own title, The Misadventures of Tron Bonnne.


  • Animal Mecha: Most of the major robots she builds fit into this theme.
  • Anime Hair: Not as out-there as Tiesel's but its still pretty silly.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Roll's Betty towards Mega Man.
  • Bishonen Line: In a sense—her "masterpiece", Theodore Bruno, is the most humanoid of her robots and definitely the strongest.
  • Breakout Character: Along with Mega Man himself, she's the character everyone knows. She got her own spinoff for a reason.
  • Capcom vs. Whatever: She's showed up in a few of these games, the latest being Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Project X Zone.
  • Distressed Damsel: In Misadventures, she's kidnapped near the end of the game. A servbot drives the Gustaf solo to rescue her
  • Evil Counterpart: To Roll, as the weapons expert of the Bonnes who builds and pilots their robots.
  • Friendly Enemy: Towards Denise in The Misadventures of Tron Bonne. She's always eager to offer a few comforting words whenever she defeats the latter.
  • Loveable Rogue: Just like Tiesel, she's very likeable for a pirate.
  • Mission Control: During Teisel's short stint as a playable charcter, she acts as his spotter.
  • Punny Name: If you're going by the Japanese and the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 pronounciation of her last name as "Bone", that is. Somewhat fitting, considering the series' habit of naming its various characters after musical terms and instruments.
  • Teen Genius: She may be a teenager, but she has the skills to build and repair robots the size of houses.
  • Tsundere: Normally very hot-tempered and angry, but she has a soft side that comes out sometimes.
  • She's Got Legs: Damn.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks exactly like her mother.
  • Team Mom: For the Servbots.
  • Villain Protagonist: During the prequel, as she's the player character for 99% of the game (Though you actually control her mech, not her directly, unless one counts the static image of her at the base).
  • Villainesses Want Heroes: She wants Mega Man Volnutt.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Dogs?: Fears dogs a lot to the point she'll jump to a lightpost from the smallest puppy.

Bon Bonne

Babuu.
Voiced by Chuck Campbell (English), Ikue Otani (Japanese)

The very mysterious, young member of the Bonne Family. While he speaks like a baby, he's a big mecha. It's really unclear if the robot is acting like a baby or a baby is inside a mecha.


  • Ambiguously Human: Is he a baby perpetually inside a mecha or a childlike robot treated like a family? No one really knows.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: He can fire a salvo of missiles during the first encounter with him.
  • Verbal Tic: "Babuu!" As he's still a baby, it's the only word he knows how to say.

The Servbots

Miss Tron!
Voiced by Elizabeth Hanna (English), Chisa Yokoyama (Japanese)

The cute yet almost unreliable Bonne Family's minions. While they often screw up, they sometimes rise up to help the family no matter what. Too bad they get more abuse from Tron rather than from authorities and Mega Man. Even though they always go through hard times, they do their very best to make their mom (Tron) proud of them, which sadly happens very rarely.


    Other Characters 

Glyde

I'm very, very, disappointed in all of you! You can't even capture a little island by yourselves!
Voiced by Michael Hall (English, The Misadventures of Tron Bonne), Toby Proctor (English, Legends 2), Takehito Koyasu (Japanese)

The self-proclaimed rival to the Bonne Family. Teisel is his main rival and both hate each other's guts. He even has his own set of bird-like minions.


Lex Loath

Voiced by Jim Morris (English), Junpei Takiguchi (Japanese)

A loan shark that eventually kidnaps both Teisel and Bon for a huge debt Teisel never paid him back.


Denise

Voiced by Nadine Rabinovitch (English), Hiroko Konishi (Japanese)

An extremely devoted police officer who always has bad days during work. She tries really hard in bringing criminals to justice by all means necessary.


Bola and Klaymoor

Voiced by Kent Sheriden (English, Bola), Paul Miller (English, Klaymoor), Takeshi Kusao (Japanese, Bola), Shozo Iizuka (Japanese, Klamoor)


Verner von Bluecher

Voiced by Stewart Arnott (English), Iemasa Kayumi (Japanese)


The Master

Voiced by Kent Sheridan (English)

The ruler of Elysium. Saying anything other than that requires the spoiling of massive reveals from both games.


Aero

Voiced by Akemi Kanda (Japanese)

Aero was a character set to appear in Legends 3, acting as Barrett's spotter.


Barrett

    System's Units 

Mega Man Juno

''Was it you who awoke me? It is somewhat earlier than I had planned...
Voiced by Jeff Mallory (English), Akira Ishida (Japanese)

A Bureaucratic Unit who rests beneath Kattelox Island within the Main Gate, he is awakened by Trigger when he explores the gate.


  • Affably Evil: Unfailingly polite. Courteous to what he believes are his superiors. Tries to help what he thinks is a malfunctioning unit. Treats genocide of the Carbons like it was taking out the trash.
  • Big Words: During their final battle his first statement is that he's going to "exercise my prerogative of correctional dispensation" This confuses Volnutt so badly that he has to rephrase it to "I'm going to exercise my authority to terminate your programming"
  • Captain Ersatz: Juno reminds some players of Xelloss from the Slayers series, from the perpetually closed eyes to the creepy carefree smile. Both characters are also voiced by Akira Ishida.
  • Eyes Always Shut: He only opens his eyes once when he's reactivated, though they do change shape with his expressions when closed.
  • Expy: Of Sigma. Both leave their heads behind after being defeated the first time, which then flies up and attaches to a larger body.
  • Final Boss: In Legends 1.
  • Graceful Loser: He accepts his defeat, saying he was destroyed in the process of doing his duties, and will await for his back-up program to be reactivated. He further notes that given Volnutt is a purifier model and he's a bureaucratic model, he wasn't expecting to win anyway; you're built for combat, he isn't.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Although he doesn't appear until very late in Legends 1, the game takes a considerably darker turn when he shows up, especially in comparison to the villains the player had been fighting up until now.
  • One-Winged Angel: After being defeated once, his head floats up and attaches to a larger body.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He is Kattelox Island's legendary disaster, who can singlehandedly initialize a program to kill all the inhabitants.
  • Raymanian Limbs
  • Sealed Evil in a Can
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: His hair is a pink-violet color.

Sera

Voiced by Danya Gensiorek (English), Akiko Yajima (Japanese)

A mysterious girl found at Forbidden Island inside stasis who later helps the Diggers to uncover the mystery of the Mother Lode, guiding them to find the keys to find the ancient technology. However, the Mother Lode is not what they think it is, and Sera has anterior motives in helping them.


Geetz

Voiced by John Cleland (English)

A mysterious man who was found alongside Sera on Forbidden Island, he's the Servitor Unit for her and is almost always seen by her side. He and Sera attacks the Sulpher-Bottom after Mega Man Volnutt gathers all four keys, allowing Sera to escape with them. Gatz attempts to fight him, but only manages to seperate Geetz from the airship and thus Volnutt has to fight him on the deck.


Yuna

Voiced by Alison Lawrence (English), Maria Kawamura (Japanese)
Yuna in her original body.

A mysterious girl who appears right after Yuna is awakened from her stasis. Her origins and motives are shrouded in mystery.


Gatz

Voiced by John Cleland (English)
