[[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.

* AbsenteeActor: Episode 18 of Beast is noticably the only episode in the entire series where Mega Man and Lan are both absent.
* AdaptedOut[=/=]SparedByTheAdaptation: Mega Man's backstory [[spoiler: as Hub]] is never present in the ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'' anime; there was some indication in earlier story arcs of the manga that his origins would be explored, but this plot thread was eventually dropped.
* {{Alternate Universe}}: An alternate incarnation of the original Mega Man. Indeed, he's an alternate universe version of the character.
* ArmCannon: [[OnceASeason And again]]. Of note is the fact that the "Buster" is in fact the default weapon for all Navis, though many have been customized to have different default weapons (like Roll's arm-crossbow and [=ProtoMan's=] Wide Sword).
* BadassAdorable: As usual, saving the world from evil megalomaniac scientists is just another day on the Net. And yet, for all his badassery, he's ultimately a kind-hearted, responsible, well-meaning, and even {{Adorkable}} equivalent of a ten-year old boy much like his classic counterpart.
** 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).
* BewareTheNiceOnes: You wouldn't think a kind-hearted little guy like him would be the single strongest Navi on the Net (bar Bass), would you?
* BrainUploading: [[spoiler:His program is based on the DNA of Hub Hikari, 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 creators say that it's not a stylized H, but rather an abstract symbol whose equal portions are meant to represent Mega Man's relationship to Lan [[spoiler:as his brother]]. That said, it actually evolved from an earlier design that ''was'' an H. It seems this design is also the Hikari family crest (Dr. Hikari has the same symbol on his uniform shirt) and may have some significance to [=SciLab=] (a close variation is painted on the ground in front of the government building in the first game).
* CoolMask: Has a mask that covers his mouth when in battle and retracts when out.
* CluelessChickMagnet: In the anime, both Roll and Meddy make not-so-subtle advances on him throughout the series. Roll even has him cosplay as a groom with her as the bride (tuxedo, wedding gown, and all) once. Yet at the same time he has no idea why the two play tug-of-war with him in the center.
* CrossdressingVoices: In Japanese.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: To an almost absurd degree. [[spoiler: 1. The most powerful virus ever created, 2. a superorganism composed of an innumerable number of bugs that was merging the Real and Cyber Worlds together, 3. [[HolyShitQuotient THE SOUL-SUCKING INTERNET ITSELF (which mind you, is an entire other universe, or at least the original draft, meaning Mega Man essentially destroyed an entire universe)]], 4. a cyber being capable of destroying planets after judging them as if he were God, 5. the physical embodiment of all the negative traits of humanity, 6. two beasts capable of laying waste to thousands of programs and destroying computers across an entire city just by roaring, 7. the Navi declared to be the Cyber World's God of Destruction (who is armed with the powers of examples 2 and 6).]] [[DudeWheresMyRespect You'd think he'd get some kind of recognition for this...]]
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: He appears to die at the end of ''3'', but Dr. Hikari is able to salvage him at the last minute.]]
* ElementalPowers: Whenever he uses Double Soul or the Cross System he takes on the elemental affinity of the Navi he's copying. Even the non-elemental Navis have an affinity (i.e. Slash Cross is a Sword-type and is thus weak to breaking attacks).
* EnemyWithout: In the fourth and fifth games, [=MegaMan=] does battle with his own Dark Soul. In the fourth game, the Dark Soul is summoned in the Final Dungeon and Bonus Dungeon, while in the fifth game, he'll show up anytime Mega accidentally botches a Chaos Unison.
* {{Foil}}: To Lan. Mega Man is polite, composed, and hardworking while Lan is loud, outgoing, and kinda lazy.
* FutureSpandex: Ayup. Deliberately invoked by the creators to render the series distinct from the classic series, but Mega's is probably the one whose outfit most resembles a superhero.
* GreenEyes: Has them. [[spoiler: They're actually quite important as they represent the 0.01% difference in DNA that limits his potentially dangerous TwinTelepathy with Lan.]]
* TheHero: No kidding.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:At the end of the third game. This turns out to be a Disney Death in the long run. He pulls several of these in the manga and it always turns out to be a Disney Death there too. Though it took him ''a year'' to come back from the last one.]]
* HoldingYourShoulderMeansInjury: Done [[ here]], though it leads to [[ArmCannon something else]].
* InSeriesNickname: Roll shortens his name to Mega quite often.
* JapanesePronouns: "Boku," which marks him as polite in contrast to Lan who uses "ore."
* MessianicArchetype: 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.]] It helps that he and Net belong to the Net ''Saviors'' in Axess on.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: He's surprisingly strong for a Navi his size, able to lift hammers and cannons larger than he is with ease and punches out Gutsman in the first episode of the anime.
* NiceGuy: While he can be exasperated with Lan's antics at times, he's ultimately one of the nicest characters in in the series.
* OneWayVisor: As [[ Proto Soul]], [[ Search Soul]], [[ Gyro Soul]], [[ Knight Soul]] and [[ Meddy Soul]].
* PhysicalGod: Implied to be able to become this in Battle Network 5 should he access his full power. How powerful you may ask? You know that pesky final boss fight? After it returned Mega Man tapped into his power as [[spoiler: the human Hub]] and destroyed it again with ''a wave of his hand!'' Granted he was drained afterward and the boss came back via the power of hatred, but it's still pretty darn impressive. He also beat Geo, who is known for taking down planet busters in almost every game in the crossover, meaning that [=MegaMan.EXE=] is arguably the single strongest incarnation of the character in franchise history.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Is officially 148 cm tall (4'9'') and well... see the DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu and PhysicalGod entries.
* PlayerCharacter: For the internet world and in combat.
* PolarOppositeTwins: [[spoiler:Once his true nature as Lan's twin brother is revealed, this quickly becomes prevalent. Lan is irresponsible, Hub is not. Lan is boisterous when praised, Hub is humble and takes praise in stride. Lan is incredibly extroverted and rarely thinks before he speaks, Hub is more reserved and thoughtful. The list goes on and on...]]
* 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 Double Soul, Trans Arm[[note]]From the mobile phone game ''Legend of Network'' that takes place between [=BN5=] and [=BN6=][[/note]] and the Cross System.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: The basis of each of [=MegaMan's=] Double Souls is a profound moment of empathy between the two [=NetNavis=] involved. {{Subverted}} 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. However, it still runs on the level of understanding between Lan, his Link Navis, and Mega Man, so it still counts.
* PrimaryColorChampion: Blue all over with a red insignia and yellow highlights. He's also most definitely TheHero.
* PunnyName: There's his Japanese name, which as per series tradition forms the Rock and Roll pun. His [[spoiler: human names (Saito in Japanese and Hub in English) are both networking terms (Saito refers to a website while a hub can refer to a hardware device that connects Ethernets together. To sell the pun further, an Ethernet can also be called a Local Area Network, or ''LAN'' for short.]]
* 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.]]
* 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:
** The [[InfinityPlusOneSword Hub.Batch program]] allows Mega Man to tap into his vast latent powers, taking on a slightly different form in each game. In the first game, it gives Mega a phenomenally powerful buster; in the second, as Hub Style, it gives Mega access to the sum total of all his other Styles' abilities; in the third through the fifth games, it appears as a Navi Customizer program rather than a Style. In the sixth game, it's activated through a Giga Chip.
** 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 [[CutscenePowerToTheMax 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:
** [[EnemyWithin Mega Man DS]] in the fourth and fifth games is constantly trying to tempt Mega to use Dark Chips so that DS can go completely berserk.
** In the sixth game, Mega gains a second one when he seals an EldritchAbomination in his body. He can use the beast's power just fine for three turns, but if you're ever tempted to go a fourth turn, the beast will take over.
** 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 remake, he also time travels to the future in one sidequest in Star Force. He also does this during Stream to stop Shade Man from conquering the past and filling the present day with Darkloids.
* 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 Creator/KumikoHiga (JP), Creator/BradSwaile (EN)''

Mega Man's operator.

* AbsenteeActor: See Mega Man's entry.
* {{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: Frequently indulges in large quantities of food (which his mother is more than willing to allow). This is seen more frequently in the anime, where he sometimes has a BalloonBelly from eating too much.
* BookDumb: He's not the best student but he's 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.]]
* {{Foil}}: To Mega Man.
* 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]].
* {{Heroic BSOD}}: Has one when [[spoiler: Mega Man is not only kidnapped but corrupted and turned against him in Battle Network 5.]] It takes a [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan punch from either Baryl or Chaud to snap him out of it.]]
* HeavySleeper: He sleeps a lot when he's not in the Internet or at school.
* HotBlooded: Moreso in the anime, but in the games he can get extremely excited about certain things (which mostly pertain to eating and Net Battling).
* IdiotHero: Sleeps through class often and is quite impulsive. However, he's surprisingly ingenious when it comes down to it, and he becomes [[spoiler: a Net Researcher twenty years later and kick-started the EM Wave revolution.]]
* KidHero: 10 at the Start, 11-12 by the end.
* MadeOfIron: Has survived getting slowly suffocated to death in a submarine, fried by thousands of times the lethal amount of radiation, jumped out of a three story building into the ocean (which is equivalent to landing on concrete) without saying much more than "ow", nearly having his soul sucked out by the Internet taken form, being attacked by the living embodiment of human sin, and escaped half a dozen exploding secret bases without a scratch. If this kid isn't indestructible, what is?
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: It really isn't clear whether or not he has feelings for Mayl in the games. He's willing to risk his life for her, but all the while refers to her as a friend and nothing more... [[spoiler: They do get together in the end.]]
* NotAMorningPerson: Most of his activities are done late afternoon through the wee hours. Mega Man often has to struggle to get him up in the morning.
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler: With Mayl.]]
* ParrotExposition: Lan does this so 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) [[spoiler: Which becomes even more punny when you realize that he has a deep connection with his twin brother Hub, a device that connects Local Area Networks, or Lans, together.]]
* RollerbladeGood: Not exactly the {{Badass}} kind though.
* 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.

* ADayInTheLimelight:
** She and Roll share episode 41 of Axess with Chaud investigating why Navis are disappearing. Then they spend episodes 15 and 18 of Beast with Chaud and Proto Man after getting seperated from Lan, Raika and Dingo when sent into Beyondard. The latter of which doesn't even feature Mega Man and Lan.
** In the fourth game, she is the focus of one of the side quests, in which you get to battle her at the end and win Roll's Double Soul. This is the first time she and Roll are available as opponents.
* BalloonBelly: Episode 54 of {{Anime}}.
* ButNotTooForeign: She's half-Netopian.
* CherryBlossomGirl: Her homepages all have this motif, and her hair piece vaguely resembles one. Not to mention her last name "Sakurai" which resembles the Japanese word for cherry blossoms.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Lan. [[spoiler: 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.]]
* CuteBruiser[=/=]PintsizedPowerhouse: In the anime, a flashback showed her beating up an older boy bullying Lan when they were toddlers.
* TheGlomp: Has a habit of doing this to Lan in the openings of the anime since Axess. Not as often in the actual show itself, but it has happened.
* HeroesWantRedHeads: Played with. It's not really clear what Lan's level of interest in her is. He obviously likes her a lot, but is never clear on any romantic feelings towards her.
* MeaningfulName: Mayl's name is a pun off of "e-mail."
* MrExposition: In the first game, she's introduced waiting for Lan at his front door so they can walk to school together. She spends the entire walk talking about the WWW arson wave.
* PatientChildhoodLoveInterest: Mayl is Lan's official Love Interest in the games, [[spoiler: and they become an Official Couple in the epilogue]]. In ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'', she's part of a LoveTriangle, since Lan ends up on the receiving end of Princess Pride's affections in the second season and Jasmine's in ''Stream''.
* 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}}: DoubleSubverted. [[WordOfGod Design notes]] in the recently translated ''Official Complete Works'' claim that while Mayl was originally conceived as a Tsundere, ExecutiveMeddling resulted in her being much more gentle-hearted, but allowed for her to react to Lan. On several occasions throughout he series, Mayl calls Lan a dummy, and in the sixth game (after Lan has moved away), she decides to let the ACDC Area BBS know how much she doesn't miss him.
--->'''Mayl:''' It'd be nice if he just sent me a mail or something... [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial But I don't really care or anything...]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: A hot type A, her black socks shows only her upper thighs.

->''Voiced by Creator/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: Fits into this role much more effectively than Mayl does, due to her more peaceful and feminine nature.
* 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: Often plays this role. Roll's been the damsel at least once in each main game, though it's harder to remember in [=BN4=] since she also TookALevelInBadass -- and then went right back to being distressed for ''all'' of 5, and was captured ''yet again'' in 6. Even in 4 she's still kidnapped by Shade Man and shortly before her tournament match against Mega Man, she's held hostage by a generic Navi.
* GenkiGirl: Like her operator Roll is very energetic, particularly towards [=MegaMan=].
* LoveInterest: While the games never particularly seem to care, [[AllThereInTheManual official profiles]] refer to Roll as [=MegaMan's=] girlfriend (while only referring to Mayl as Lan's ''classmate'').
* TheMedic: Translates into her battle chips as well, which heal Mega Man.
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler: With Mega Man. They even have a kid together named Mega Man Junior.]]
* 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.
* TemporarilyAVillain: During the N1 Grand Prix in the first season where WWW trick her into using a fake battle chip turning Roll evil.
* 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. When she was transformed by an evil chip, her weapon of choice became a thorny whip.

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

Another childhood friend of Lan, and a friendly rival.

* BalloonBelly: Very, very frequently. It's hardly a wonder he's on the heavy side when he over-eats so much.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Has a younger brother, Chisao, who he is very protective of.
* BoisterousBruiser: He's this both in and out of the Internet.
* 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}}: His design is rather...unusual: a head and body that look like a malformed bowling pin, a tuft of hair that looks like a shark fin (and completely bald otherwise), and a pair of uncomfortably thick lips.
* MoeCouplet: Any of his interactions with his little brother are especially adorable.
* TheRival: Though this is mostly passed over in favor of Lan's rivalry with Chaud.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Losing to Lan in Netbattles again and again doesn't stop him from calling himself the greatest netbattler in town.
* SupremeChef: He works for WWW's curry restaurant starting in Axess.

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

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

* AscendedExtra: A memorable and [[WeCanRebuildHim oft-recurring]] but minor villain from the classic series managed to become a part of the heroic main cast for ''Battle Network''.
* TheBigGuy: Only in terms of pure physical size. In terms of raw power, Megaman has him beat several times over.
* 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: He's pretty intimidating, but he's a teddy bear deep down.
* FastballSpecial: The Guts Shoot Program Advance features Guts hurling Mega straight forward for a crippling amount of damage. In the first game, it was so powerful that you could take down the FinalBoss and the {{Bonus Boss}}es with a total of two hits each!
* RocketPunch: A high-level [=GutsMan=] ability, and one that you can acquire with the [=GutsStraight=] chip.
* SummonMagic: In his secret BonusBoss battle for ''Battle Chip Challenge'', obtained with the code hidden in ''Battle Network 4'', Guts uses a Program Deck built around Battle Chips that summon monsters from holes, like God Stone or Magma Dragon. The need of a hole is actually a liability in ''BCC'', but in the main line games, Guts is ''all about'' putting holes in the field. That he never got to use those chips in the main games is a missed opportunity.
* VerbalTic: Replacing "desu" with "degatsu". In English, this usually got translated as a freefloating "guts guts".
* WarmUpBoss: Usually provides the earliest boss fight in the series.
** TookALevelInBadass: About midway through the third game, he and Dex move to Netopia to train and get stronger. The next time the player sees them, they are strong enough to crush Undernet Ranks 4 to 6 all at once. By the next time Gutsman can be rematched, [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration it begins to show]] when the words [[ThatOneAttack Z-Punch]] display on the other side of the screen. No other boss, barring a certain MirrorBoss, actually uses a Program Advance of their own.

!!Yai Ayanokoji ''(Yaito Ayanokoji)''
->''Voiced by Creator/HinakoYoshino (JP), Creator/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: Considering she's only 8, it's to be expected.
* GradeSkipper: She's about two years younger than Lan and his friends, but is in the same class with them. In the anime, she's even beyond fifth grade level.
* MaidCorps: They can be seen in montages throughout several episodes doing random chores ''across the city'' in the {{Anime}}.
* {{Ojou}}: Her father is the CEO of [[BlandNameProduct Gabcom]].
* PerpetualFrowner: All of her default mugshots are like this, though she's generally expressive.
* 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. In the anime she's prone to doing favors for her friends as well, such as giving them exclusive access to a game that hasn't been released yet.

->''Voiced by Creator/YasuhikoKawazu (JP), Creator/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.
* InconsistentDub: It's spelled "Glide" in 5.
* NiceGuy: Very, very polite.
* TheSmartGuy: He's not very good in a fight, but he has access to networks and information that none of the other main navis do.
* TheUnfought: He is 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), Creator/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.]]

* ADayInTheLimelight: Chaud and Proto Man have several of these. To list:
** Episode 20 in the first season has him and Yai trapped in an elevator and they have to escape to avoid being late for Chaud's tag team match against Stone Man and Bomb Man.
** Episode 55 has him running errands for the president of a smaller company in hopes to get him to sign a contract with IPC and fighting Drill Man.
** Episode 41 of Axess has him working with Mayl and Roll investigating why Navis are missing.
** Episodes 15 and 29 has them working with Raoul and Thunder Man battling against Asteroid Navis.
** Episodes 15 and 18 of Beast has them travelling Beyondard with Mayl and Roll after getting separated from the others.
* 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. In the games, he's a net official and by the end of the sixth game, he's already in college.
* {{Jerkass}}: Started out as this, before CharacterDevelopment took its toll.
** {{Jerk With a Heart of Gold}}: He's still pretty cold and aloof, but is much more open and friendly than he was at the start. He openly respects Lan and Megaman and treats Protoman with much more compassion than he did before.
* MeaningfulName: "Eugene" literally means "well-born". "Chaud" is the French word for "warm" or "hot", which doesn't seem to have much meaning directly for him; it may in fact be a play off of Dr. Froid, whose name means "cold" (both characters are introduced in the same chapter of the first game). [[AvertedTrope This isn't the case in the anime]]. Despite having the last name "Blaze", neither Proto Man, his navi, nor he himself are affiliated with fire. Chaud Blaze fits him better in the manga, however, with his increasingly poorly suppressed temper.
* MustHaveCaffeine: He drinks more coffee than anyone else in the anime Axess-on.
* TheRival: The more serious rival to Lan.
* TheSpock: He treats everything with a cool rationality, especially in his debut.
* TheStoic: He rarely shows any emotion beyond being slightly annoyed at Lan. This becomes more and more downplayed as his character develops, but he never loses his unflappable nature.
** 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.
* VagueAge: Is he Lan's age? Slightly older?
* WellDoneSonGuy: "[[LetsPlay/RoahmMythril Why is Chaud such a jerk? Because his dad's an even bigger one.]]"

!![=ProtoMan.EXE=] ''(Blues.EXE)''
->''Voiced by Creator/MasayaMatsukaze (JP) and Creator/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.
* {{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.
* HeroesPreferSwords: He is the most common sword user in the series.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [=DesertMan=] frying your vision with trippy mirages? [=ProtoMan=]! Blind Mode!
* TheLancer: Despite not being an official part of Lan's group, he fulfills this role to the main cast of Navis. He is Megaman's foil and main rival, the two have directly contrasting personalities, worldviews, and color schemes, and Protoman generally prefers to work alone, but will grudgingly play second fiddle to Megaman if the situation calls for it.
* 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.

* ApocalypseMaiden: [[spoiler: She was originally a war program designed to control machines. Wily intends to use her to control both of the Cybeasts, which only she is capable of.]]
* CannotSpitItOut: [[spoiler: She likes Lan and almost tells him, but decides against it.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of ''VideoGame/MegaManX4's'' Iris.
** LateArrivalSpoiler: Anyone who has played X4 will immediately guess that [[spoiler:she's a Navi.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [spoiler: With Colonel at the end of the sixth game.]]
* MysteriousWaif: She pops up from time to time in the sixth game to offer Lan aid, but it's never really clear who she is or where she comes from.
* RescueRomance: Develops a crush on Lan after he saves her from a rogue cyberdog.
* 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.
* WalkingSpoiler: To the extent that even her name is potentially a spoiler.

->''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 has the ability to turn Mega Man into his beast forms from Battle Network 6 and collects Beastized viruses like toys.

!!Mick (Aragaki Kojirou)
Lan's best friend 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 Navi with a custom orange and yellow paint scheme.

* {{Expy}}: Partially for Dex. He has Dex's pride and initial bully status, but is still a prick after he befriends Lan.
* {{Jerkass}}:Initially.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: As shown with Plata, he can be a nice guy when he wants to.
* MoralityPet: Plata the Penguin, who is one of the few things in 6 that get's him to feel something other than hate or disinterest.
* NoNameGiven: His [=NetNavi=]. Knowing Mick, it's entirely possible he never actually bothered naming him.
* ShadowArchetype: To Lan. Both are proud netbattlers who have Navi's who mother them, but while Lan is incredibly friendly kid who's extremely close with his navi, Mick is rude to everyone and bickers with his Navi constantly. Lan is also a much better Operator than Mick, who is often put in the position of a DamselInDistress.
* {{Tsundere}}: Fills this role after the [=BlastMan=] scenario, probably because Chaud had partially grown out of it by the sixth game.
* UniformityException: His Navi has the basic [=NormalNavi=] shape, but with a unique color palette and angry eyes.
* 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: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.

* MakingASplash: [=SharkMan=] is an Aqua Navi.
* 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.
* ThreateningShark: [=SharkMan=].

!!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: In the anime and in Battle Network 4 and 6.
* TheBusCameBack: She and [=WoodMan=] return in a later episode of Axess to help Mega Man and Lan defeat Spark Man and give [=MegaMan=] Wood Soul.
* ElementalHair: Green hair; fitting for a Wood Navi operator.
* GreenThumb: [=WoodMan=] is a Wood Navi.
* NatureHero: Only in the games, where she is part of a group that fights in order to preserve nature. In the anime, she's a horticulturist who also happens to be a net agent.
* 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.
* OnlySaneMan: She is calm and reasonable, especially when compared to the other environmentalists in the series.

!!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.
* CheshireCatGrin: [=SkullMan=], in contrast to his operator.
* CreepyGood: Despite her mysterious appearance and operating a skeletal Navi she never shows any malicious intent.
* DemBones: Well, it's [=SkullMan=]...
* TheStoic: She doesn't really talk much, and when she does it's usually in a monotone.
* SuperStoicShopkeeper: And a real creepy one at that.
** NotSoStoic: She has a few moments in the anime, such as getting easily seasick (along with Sal) at the end of their only Axess appearance.

[[folder:Supporting Cast]]
!!Dr. Yuichiro Hikari
-> Lan's father, a renowned computer scientist. Voiced by Creator/MichaelAdamthwaite 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.]]
* BumblingDad: In the anime he shows signs of being scatter brained despite his genius, the most prevalent example of this being the final episode of the first season, where he slept through viruses manifesting in the real world and attacking the facilities he was working at.
* 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 wife and son hold him in high regard. It helps that he sends Lan plenty of cool stuff like Battle Chips and the Navi Customizer (along with Mega Man himself when Lan was a kid).
* {{Megane}}: He looks good with those glasses.
* NotThatKindOfDoctor: In the grand tradition of the Megaman series, Hikari's doctorate means he specializes in the technology central to the plot. In this case, it's computer science rather than robotics.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: While his [=PhD=] is presumably in computer scientist and that's what he's usually show doing, the fourth game had him called in to deal with an incoming asteroid impact.
* 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 main six games, but she is named in Battle Chip Challenge.
* 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.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Always the one to cook in the house and her family definitely enjoys it. Judging from a gag in the ''Himitsu'' fanbook, she likes to cook ''more than Lan likes to eat''.
* 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.]]
* {{Housewife}}: Haruka's a stay-at-home mom, but the odd bit of writing here and there suggests an active life in the community, going to town meetings and such.
* ParentalSubstitute: For Meiru in ''Battle Chip Challenge'', and for Sherrice in the GaidenGame ''Legend of Network''.
* 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 look like a pair of swiss rolls.
* BoundAndGagged: In the first game only. Freeing her is amusingly just an option.
* ForcedTutorial: Gives one 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.
* BadassAdorable: [=ToadMan=].
* 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.
** AdvertisedExtra: With that being said, they do at least show up in Stream's first ending, possibly as a reference to Battle Network 5.
* HotScoop: Regarded as one in universe.
* IntrepidReporter: Not even the ''Undernet'' will stop her from getting a scoop there.
* MakeMeWannaShout: [=ToadMan=] usually attacks with electric-infused croaks.
* MakingASplash: [=ToadMan=].
* MustMakeAmends: Insists on joining Team Colonel after the team leader's HeroicSacrifice to save [=ToadMan=]. Lan rejects her for this reason, so she decided to avenge Colonel herself. This doubles as a SecretTestOfCharacter, Lan and Mega are expected to be at the Undernet to lead the liberation mission. It works, since the rest of the team were at [=ToadMan=]'s side and they manage to convince Lan to lead said mission.
* PunnyName: Both her Japanese and English names have some form of the onomatopoeia of the noises a frog makes.
* ShockAndAwe: [=ToadMan=] himself is Aqua element, but his battle chip and most of his attacks deal Elec damage.

!!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 how fluffy it is!]]
* HeelFaceTurn: We mentioned that he was in World Three at the beginning of the first game, right?
* IJustWantToBeBadass: His main reason for joining Team Colonel.
* KarmaHoudini: Although he pulled a HeelFaceTurn, he ''did'' take over an entire school and tried to brainwash all the students, and got away with nothing but a lecture from Lan.
* NerdGlasses: A pair of square, rimless specs that, while not fitting any of the classic definitions, are very unflattering.
* {{Otaku}}: For battle chips, which drives him to travel the world and even join the WWW in the first game.
* ProudToBeAGeek: Considering that geekiness is actually the source of extremely helpful knowledge about net combat, it's not hard to see why.
* 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. He even writes the "huh"s in his emails! In Japanese, he replaces "desu" with "demasu".

-> An intelligent Navi that appears to have a huge brain of sorts encased in a light bulb. Operated by Higsby. Voiced by Creator/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.
* 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 were he doesn't even move from were starts in battle and only has 3 very easy to defeat attacks and he only uses the math ball attack until his health drops to a certain point, he's less of a joke in the Blue Moon version of the 4th game but still not very tough even at Omega level, but in the 5th game he's a far more formidable opponent with much better AI patterns and attacks than before.

!!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.
* AscendedExtra: In the games he's an optional boss who sometimes gives out good chips and multiplayer advice. In the anime and the manga he's a major supporting character.
* CatchPhrase: "san wa iranai", or in the dub, "Famous. Just Famous.".
* 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.
* DontCallMeSir: As his {{Catchphrase}} points out, he doesn't like being called "Mr.".
* InsistentTerminology: He insists on being called "Meijin" and not "Meijin-[[UsefulNotes/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.
* NiceGuy[=/=]OnlySaneMan: Not that hard to fulfill either of those roles when your friends are [[HotBlooded Lan]], [[ClingyJealousGirl Mayl]], [[LovingBully Dex]], and [[SpoiledBrat Yai]].
* SwappedRoles: In the first Battle Network game, he's being held hostage by the WWW to blackmail his dad into messing up the Water Works. In the anime, his dad is captured while he sabotages the Water Works.

-> Operated by Tory and his father. Ice Man is a rather small and cute Eskimo-type Navi specializing in ice attacks. Voiced by Creator/SamuelVincent in the dub.

* BadassAdorable: Just like most Aqua Navis, short and small but packs a punch.
* 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: No kidding.

A rare and unique virus in the games, in which it only has 10 HP but only loses 1 HP per attack and becomes harder to hit with each round and runs away if you fail to hit him.
In the anime, its a computer program Dr. Hikari created to guide the group to Mega Man's frame after he was deleted by Pharaoh Man.

* ADayInTheLimelight: An undubbed Axess episode shows Rush running away from home and befriending a Malako virus and comes across Bubble Man.
* AdaptationalHeroism[=/=]AscendedExtra: A random virus in the games, but an ally in the anime.
* BigFriendlyDog: He's not big, but he's friendly all the same.
* BlessedWithSuck: He certainly thinks his ability to turn into a synchro chip and cross fuse with Mayl and Roll is this considering every time Cross Fusion Roll gets hit, he feels the damage.
* ButtMonkey: The fact that he gets turned into a synchro chip and can feel the pain whenever Cross Fusion Roll gets hurt and is forced into doing so despite not wanting to.
* EvilCounterpart: He meets a pink, female and feral version of himself in the first season finale. In the games, its supposed to be a stronger version of Rush with 800 HP and drops more rare chips.
* {{Jerkass}}: In his Axess limelight episode above, he refuses to bring Lan an umbrella during a rain storm claiming he'll short circuit, [[BlatantLies which turns out to be a lie since Lan comes home and sees him taking a bath.]]
* LostInTranslation: The English version of ''Battle Network 2'' missed the reference and renamed the virus "Mole".
* OutOfFocus: In the Gospel finale, he gets damaged by the Gospel Virus Beast and in Axess, he gets [[DistressedDude captured by Shade Man and Bubble Man]] so the two Darkloids can turn him into a chip allowing Shade Man to materialize in the real world without dimensional areas.
* TeamPet: Becomes this once he has the ability to enter the real world.
* UselessProtagonist: To some extent. The only useful things he's ever done are sending a cat virus back into cyberspace via a wormhole/portal and that was only because Dr. Hikari opened it up underneath the cat virus, save Lan from getting crushed by rubble earlier in the same scenario, spray water at the real world viruses in the first season finale and becoming a synchro chip to allow Mayl and Roll to cross fuse. The rest of the time, he's just there for comic relief.
* WhackAMonster: This is how you're supposed to damage it in the games.

!! Raoul and [=ThunderMan.EXE=]

* AbsenteeActor: Raoul doesn't appear in the last two episodes of Axess, but [=ThunderMan=] shows up to help the others fight against Regal's viruses.
* ADayInTheLimelight: They share episode 35 of Axess with Raika and [=SearchMan =]fighting [=FridgeMan=], [=BrightMan=], [=SwordMan=], and [=StarMan=]. They also share episodes 15 and 29 of Stream with Chaud and [=ProtoMan=] fighting the Asteroid Navis.
* AfroAsskicker: He and Chaud wear afros to disguise themselves during their Net Battle against Lan in Axess.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [=ThunderMan=] gets possessed by Reverse in ''Legend of Network''.
* ScaryBlackMan: Subverted. Raoul may look intimidating, but he's [[GentleGiant quite nice in spite of his appearance]].
* ShockAndAwe: [=ThunderMan=] is an Elec Navi.
* TemporarilyAVillain: Invoked. Raoul, [=ThunderMan=], and Chaud disguise themselves as villains in the anime to teach Lan the dangers of underestimating his opponents.

!! Tora (Torakichi Aragoma) and [=KingMan.EXE=]
An (initially) arrogant boy with a talent in chess.

* ChessMotifs: His Navi Kingman, who looks like a chess king and uses chips based on chess pieces and tactics resembling chess openings.
* TheChessmaster: On a much smaller scale than normal, but Tora's skill at chess is applied directly to his netbattles. It is surprisingly effective.
* DemotedToExtra: In the third game, Tora was essentially a second Dex in terms of gameplay, being an ally who could be battled repeatedly for more Navi chips and plotwise, helps the others defeat WWW. Their only anime appearance was in a filler episode during the first season.
* {{Jerkass}}: When he first meets Lan, he tells him to go home instead of participating in the N1 Grand Prix. Lan justifiably asks him who Tora thinks he is bossing him around like that. Tora responds that kids are mannerless these days and provokes Lan during the N1 announcements and embarrasses him in front of the audience when Mega Man tells Lan to calm down by citing Lan as a baby an needing his Navi to nanny him. And when Sunyama is announcing the contestants, he tells him "Shut up and show us the fight arena!". Though this quickly disappears after the N1 as Haruka state that Tora has been polite during his stay at Lan's house and becomes more respectful towards Lan and decided he was the second best person from the N1 to learn from (the first person being Chaud) and politely but still hot bloodedly challenges Dex to a Net Battle.
* ShockwaveStomp: King Man's knights are capable of doing this, unless they land in your left column. [=KingMan's=] Navi chip can also do this if he lands on an unoccupied panel which damages enemies on the four surrounding panels, otherwise, nothing happens, [[FridgeLogic which makes absolutely no sense since [=KingMan=] himself can delete [=MegaMan=] like this and a cutscene shows [=KingMan=] deleting [=FlashMan=] by stomping on him.]]
* UnknownRival: To Chaud.

!! Tamako Shiraizumi and [=MetalMan.EXE=]
A lady who runs a gift shop outside the Ura Inn in the third game and a tournament opponent in the fourth game.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade[=/=]ExtraOreDinary: [=MetalMan=] has some circular blades he can use as an attack.
* BareYourMidriff: Her artwork shows her like this.
* BiggerOnTheInside: Tamako does this in her debut episode in the anime popping out of places or objects she shouldn't be able to fit inside of such as a bowl of food.
* CoolAunt: She's Mamoru's aunt, but we never see the two interact.
* DubNameChange: [=MetalMan=] is called Heavy [=MetalMan=] in the anime's English dub.
* EvilCounterpart: [=MetalMan=] has one in the form of Zoano [=MetalMan=].
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Firing missiles is another of [=MetalMan's=] attacks.
* PowerFist: [=MetalMan=]'s Battle Chip attack that can break through armor and panels.

!! Chisao
Dex's younger brother.

* AscendedExtra: He only appears in 3, 4, and Battle Chip Challenge, but shows up in every season of the anime, not that he does much.
* BrattyHalfPint: When he first shows up in the third game, he blocks the way into the subway station until his big brother, the #1 Net Battler in town shows up but doesn't bother telling anyone who said brother/netbattler is. Then in Battle Chip Challenge, he tells Dex that in order to win, he should get rid of Guts Man and get a new Navi. Then in the fourth game, he fakes his own kidnapping so Lan would be disqualified for being a no show at the tournament.
* OlderAndWiser: [[VagueAge The older part is debatable]], but Chisao is far less bratty in the anime. His loyalty to Dex is downplayed and doesn't hold any animosity towards the others and even once rooted for Lan and Mega Man to defeat Dex and Guts Man in Axess.
* SupremeChef: He works for WWW's curry shop just like Dex in Stream and is somehow able to make curry sherbet.
* TagalongKid: In the third game and the anime.

!!Raika and [=SearchMan.EXE=]
-> 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.

* ADayInTheLimelight: They share episode 35 of Axess with Raoul and Thunder Man fighting Fridge Man, Bright Man, Sword Man, and Star Man. Then they have episode 26 of Stream with Pride while fighting Asteroid Air Man. And in episode 17 of Beast with Dingo and Tomahawk Man, they fight Beyonard Narcy and Video Man.
* AscendedExtra: He and [=SearchMan=] become main characters in the anime during ''Beast''.
* BodyguardCrush: In the anime, Raika is given some ShipTease with Princess Pride.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [=SearchMan=] gets possessed by Reverse in ''Legend of Network''.
* BreakoutCharacter: Is given a much larger role in the later seasons, basically becoming the tertiary protagonist after Lan and Chaud.
* ColdSniper: He and Search Man are quick to delete any innocent Navis corrupted by dark chips since they believe its the only way to save them and its most definitely the only way to prevent more damage.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: When he first shows up in the anime, he rags on Lan since Japan's only defense against Nebula and their dark chips are cross fusion and essentially calls Lan a dumbass and claims that darkloids can be defeated using intelligence instead of relying on cross fusion and in the following episode, Raika orders [=SearchMan=] to fire at [=DesertMan=], but [=SearchMan=] is reluctant since Desert Man is holding Mega Man over a lava pit which means if [=SearchMan=] deletes [=DesertMan=], [=MegaMan=] would've also deleted. When [=SearchMan=] fires a freeze bullet at the lava, Raika scolds [=SearchMan=], but finally shows [=MegaMan=] some respect but still insults Lan. When he returns later in Axess, he refuses Raoul's help thinking he'll get in the way due to being a civilian. The "heart of gold" finally comes in a few episodes later when [=FridgeMan=] takes over a mine in Sharo and unintentionally traps Sharo's heroic dog in the dimensional area. Raika previously known for following all orders uses Lan to bypass the dimensional area and risk getting himself in trouble just to save his friend.
* MilitaryBrat: Comes with him being a Russian (Sharo) soldier stereotype.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Started out as this in the fifth game. He stole a Booster program with the reason that it and the Ubercorp's resort caused harm to his village. After defeated by Colonel, Lan persuaded Dingo to join their anti-Nebula team so that their voices as a hero of justice will pull a lot more weight then, enough to raise awareness about what happened to his village.

!! Jasmine and Meddy.EXE
A Chinese girl who's studying medicine.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Jasmine's game mugshot gives her an arrogant pout and a large forehead. The anime and official art tones down those traits and make her cuter.
* AnimeChineseGirl: She's from Choina, the Battle Network version of China.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Meddy plays this a bit in the Love Fortune Telling episode of ''Stream'', notably by snagging one of [=MegaMan=]'s arms, and where Roll is concerned, she does not appear to be deterred in the slightest in competing for [=MegaMan=]'s attention.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She's shown to be kind to animals.
* TheMedic: Meddy being a nurse, serves this role in the games and anime.
* MustMakeAmends: Insists on joining Team [=ProtoMan=] after the team leader's HeroicSacrifice to save Meddy. Lan rejects her for this reason, so she decided to avenge [=ProtoMan=] herself. This doubles as a SecretTestOfCharacter, Lan and Mega are expected to be at the Undernet to lead the liberation mission. It works, since the rest of the team were at Meddy's side and they manage to convince Lan to lead said mission.
* TheRival: Towards Mayl and Roll in the anime for Lan and [=MegaMan=]'s affections, though it's a bit more obvious on the Navis' end than for the Operators.
* ShipTease: Both Jasmine and Meddy have their special moments with Lan and [=MegaMan=], mainly in ''Stream''.
* StandardStatusEffects: Meddy's capsules induce this when they explode.

* TooDumbToLive: In one episode of Stream, he keeps calling Tesla [[BerserkButton an old lady]] setting her off and making her chase him and Lan.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Fyrefox and [=NapalmMan=] argue about everything, but are capable of working together and care about each other, such as when [=NapalmMan=] entered a Net Police robot to stop [=MagnetMan=] and drives it into a trash compactor to make sure it wouldn't hurt any humans, Fyrefox then enters the compactor, removes the robot's CPU to jack [=NapalmMan=] out. Fyrefox yells at [=NapalmMan=] for almost getting himself deleted while [=NapalmMan=] retorts that Fyrefox could've gotten himself crushed and the two laugh it off.

* 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.

* BerserkButton: Don't call her an old lady.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She's genuinely grateful to Charlie for helping save her and tells him to thank Gauss and Count Zap for her.
* 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 Fyrefox. 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.

!!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:
** 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.
** The reason why he [[spoiler:gave Dr. Regal LaserGuidedAmnesia at the end of ''Battle Network 5''.]] Despite Wily's evil intentions, even he was appalled by [[spoiler: his son's abuse of Soul Net. Using Soul Net to warp minds worldwide was a line even he would never cross]].
* 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: [[ The skinny to Tadashi's fat]] in flashback sequences during ''Battle Network 5''.
* {{Irony}}: He's probably the best computer scientist around by the time the series starts, but he only uses his skills to destroy net society out of spite for his rival. [[spoiler:At least until the end of the series.]]
* MadScientist: Well duh, he's the expy of one of the Trope Codifiers!
* 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.
* ManipulativeBastard: He's at his absolute best in games three and six. It's astonishing. [[spoiler:Watch him string Bass along like a toy during the endgame of three]].
* 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: One of only two in the whole series. Which is a shame, considering what he would otherwise be capable of.
* OmnicidalManiac: His goal is invariably the complete destruction of net society, the existence of which he views as a symbol of the world's rejection of him and his research.
* ParentalAbandonment: Supposedly not around during Dr. Regal's childhood, he prefers to [[spoiler:raise his friend's son instead.]]
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:adopting Baryl and paying for the treatment of Mach's ill daughter. 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.]]

* ADayInTheLimelight: Episode 37 of the first season as a POV Sequel of two earlier episodes detailing Fire Man's deletion at the hands of Freeze Man and his rebirth as Heat Man.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: In the fourth game (at least in Red Sun). While he is unquestionably villainous in the first game [[spoiler: and the third]], and unquestionably heroic in the sixth, in the fourth it's impossible to know where he falls. He claims to be reformed, and despite Lan and Mega Man's suspicious his assistance at the hotdog stand is completely genuine, and he does genuinely care for [[ImpliedLoveInterest the girl who runs it.]] But he rigs the stadium with detonators during the tournament and has built a small crime organization from the remnants of the WWW, until he's backstabbed by his minions and helps you stop them. Making it more confusing, you get a [[ThePowerOfFriendship Fire Man's Double Soul]].

* FieryRedhead: Pun not intended.

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: In the games.
* KarmaHoudini: He never gets in trouble for his actions in the games, especially in 3, where he sets fires all over the net which causes temperatures in the real world to reach dangerous levels hospitalizing multiple [=SciLab=] scientists.

* NightmareFace: [=HeatMan=] possesses one by default.
* PantheraAwesome: [=FlameMan=] is somewhat leonine in appearance.

* FreudianExcuse: The AbusiveParents and AlwaysSomeoneBetter tropes above are apparently why he joined WWW in the anime.
* GratuitousEnglish: "OH! MY! GAHD!"
* HeroicSacrifice: In the anime, [=ElecMan=] holds [=MagnetMan=] still in order for Mega Man to delete them both with a program advance.
* KnightOfCerebus: His attack in the first Megaman Battle Network is ''far'' more serious than Ms. Madd's.
* PungeonMaster: Prone to this in regards to anything involving electricity in the English Dub of the Anime.
* PunnyName: Another Computer term, with the jack being a slang word for a USB port (which acted as the means of getting Mega Man on the net for the first three games).

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

* TheDragon: to Dr. Wily in the first game.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Yahoot. Also, [=MagicMan=]'s eyes are narrow slits, so while perhaps not technically closed the effect is similar.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Match, Zap, and Maddy aren't too fond of him at first, even when they turn over a new leaf, but gradually tolerate him.
* HeelFaceTurn: In the anime, he opens up a curry restaurant that's mildly successful with his other rejected comrades.

In the anime he was created by Lan's father Tadashi Hikari to monitor and guide the flow of data, however due to a virus he became corrupted and had to be sealed away. In the manga, he is an ancient Navi that helps Mega Man with his Style Change.

* AGodAmI: In the games he has an attitude like one, but in the anime he literally has the power of one.
* BigBad: Of the first half of season one of the anime one were he wrecks havoc and even succeeds in [[spoiler: deleting Mega Man himself, though he got better]].
* NefariousPharaoh: Slightly subverted, while his name is Pharaoh Man, he his design is more of a sarcophagus that than an actual pharaoh.

-> 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.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Episode 22 of Axess and 14 of Stream focus on him along with Ice Man and Bubble Man.
* 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.]]
* EnemyMine: In the finale of Axess, he helps the protagonists fight off a wave of viruses because they share a common enemy in Dr. Regal. However, he specifically saved [=IceMan=] and [=SpoutMan=], who he'd genuinely befriended earlier.
** 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 [=MegaMan=] 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 [=IceMan=] and [=SpoutMan=] in the anime, he was way over-shadowed by more powerful Navis (and was the butt of many jokes among the Darkloids). [=ShadeMan=], however, seemed to have a soft spot for the guy almost bordering on being a father figure (gently inquiring on where [=BubbleMan=] had been). That couldn't last long [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique given what]] Shade Man was [[CastFromLifespan using.]]
* MakingASplash: He's an Aqua Navi.
* 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.
* TheSlowPath: Gets stranded in the past after Shademan's final deletion. He hides for about a decade before Colonel finds him, at which point he's frozen by him until the first episode of Beast which is 5 years from that point.
* 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.

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: She resembles a dark-skinned Raggedy Ann doll in a lot of ways.
* GreenThumb: [=PlantMan.Exe.=]
* HospitalHottie: The evil kind.
* PunnyName: Much like Lan's Japanese name, A'''net'''ta, as in the internet.
* PurpleProse: [=PlantMan=]. Think [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} Balder]] with roses instead of peacocks and you're halfway there.
* ShipTease: In the anime, she is shown to have a crush on Chaud and desires to get closer to him after her [[HeelFaceTurn Heel-Face Turn]].
* StandardStatusEffects: : [=PlantMan=]'s flowers releases pollens that cause status ailments; pink flower causes confusion and yellow flower causes paralysis.

->''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.

* AxCrazy: "DELEEEEEEETE!" His swirly eyes should indicate how deranged he is.
* 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, [[ArmorPiercingAttack each wave of attack breaks shields]].
* 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.
* TheUnfought: In the anime, [=DrillMan=] only had three appearances and never fought [=MegaMan=].
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: He loses a ''prime'' chance to kill Lan because he insist on challenging Mega to a fight. [[spoiler:There was absolutely nothing to stop him from attacking a defenseless Lan in his tank]].

!!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.]]

* AntiVillain [[spoiler: He's a member of the new WWW, but only out of loyalty to Baryl and gratitude to Wily for saving his daughter.]]
* BashBrothers: [[spoiler: 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, but he takes a quick note on how Match's name is similar to his in ''Gregar''.
* PunnyName: Oddly enough, not a computer term. His Japanese name can be taken as part of Speed Racer's Japanese name (MachGoGoGo).
* ShoutOut: To ''Anime/SpeedRacer''--just look at his Japanese name.

!!Blackbeard ''(Captain Kurohige)''
->''Blackbeard voiced by: Creator/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.
* IronicHell[=/=]MythologyGag: In the anime, he and Yuika are sentenced to work in an aquarium after stealing Wily's reverse synchro chips.
* {{Pirate}}: What he's going for, despite the fact that his day job is an animal trainer.
* 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.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the anime, he is simply a bored, cynical lawyer taking out his bad mood on everyone else.
* AffablyEvil: None of his cheeriness is faked, but it hides a deeply misanthropic worldview.
* AmoralAttorney: He wants true justice by destroying the world.
* BadassBookworm: He's always carrying a book, fitting his position as a lawyer. But he's also a capable netbattler, skilled enough to get the attention of WWW.
* 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.
* BrokenPedestal: Lan idolizes Ito until he discovers that he framed his father and tried to corrupt the Judge Tree.
* {{Expy}}: while his beliefs and actions are somewhat reminiscent of Light Yagami.
* EyesAlwaysShut
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[HeWhoFightsMonsters 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: Thanks to his control over the Judge Tree, he can declare anyone and everyone guilty and specify the punishment of his choice.
* KnightTemplar: A perfect example of when a prosecutor's self-righteousness is bent towards outright villainy.
* 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.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the anime, he's just an incompetent weatherman trying to get revenge on the station that fired him.
* 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}}: In addition to his netbattling skills, he's an expert in martial arts.
* BigGood: In the fifth game, of Team Colonel.
* TheBusCameBack: In the anime, [[spoiler: he returns in Beast via his Beyondard counterpart]].
* CastFromLifespan: In the anime, in order to satisfy Duo who couldn't be conventionally defeated, he joins with him in his travels and spends decades traveling the cosmos. Duo would eventually have seen enough and returns him to the moment he left, but didn't reverse his aging. Add the 20 years to the anime's present and by Lan's time he's a sickly old man instead of being around 50 he should have been.
* 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.
* KilledOffForReal: In the anime, [[spoiler: he asks Duo to absorb him and Colonel so Duo can have a better understanding of cross fusion in exchange for sparing Earth. This speeds up his aging process and causes him to die of old age.]]
* 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.

* {{Badass}}: In the anime he's able to stalemate Bass and [=ShadeMan=], two opponents that were wiping the floor with both [=MegaMan=] and [=ProtoMan=] at the same time. He's also able to one shot 3 WWW Asteroid Navis at once. Basically he's at least twice as powerful as base [=MegaMan=], maybe even more.
* {{BFG}}: Colonel Cannon is a huge bazooka.
* 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.
* EleventhHourSuperPower: [[spoiler: 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.
* FullNameBasis: In the DS version of 5, he addresses Lan by his full name in his battle-start voice clips.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: With Iris at the end of the sixth game. And his Beyondard counterpart in Beast.]]
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Replaces his Colonel Cannon with a rocket launcher in 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.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In the anime, regular world Colonel is never shown again after leaving with Baryl to join Duo. Baryl would eventually be sent back, albeit much older, but Colonel never shows up again, with the older Baryl having a seemingly blank PET.

!! [=SwordMan.EXE=]
A WWW Navi guarding the way to the Life Virus in Network Transmission. Appears as a darkloid in the anime's Axess season and returns as an Asteroid Navi working for a ninja.

* AnimateInanimateObject: He's three swords working together.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In an Axess episode, he attacks Lan, causing him to drop his synchro chip and preventing him from cross fusing with Mega Man.
* [[HeroesPreferSwords Villains Prefer Swords]]: He's three sentient swords.
* MultipleHeadCase: Each of his swords are capable of talking and thought.
* {{Technicolor Blade}}s: Well, not the blades, but the handles for each of his sentient sword are primary colors.

!! [=StarMan.EXE=]
A WWW Navi selling a fake vaccine to the Zero Virus which causes said virus instead. Appears in the anime as a darkloid during Axess and returns as an Asteroid Navi in Stream operated by a fortune teller specializing in romance.

* ColonyDrop: He tries this in Stream when he misunderstands his operator's desire to create shooting stars by summoning an asteroid to wipe out Japan, or at least Den Tech City.
* DubNameChange: Axess' English dub changed his name to Nova Man.

!! [=GravityMan.EXE=]
A WWW Navi in Network Transmission. appears in the anime as a Darkloid and Asteroid Navi.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: You can only attack his head.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Averted in the anime occasionally.
* GravityMaster: Why do you think he's called Gravy Man?
* RoboSpeak: Probably the most robotic minded of all the Navis in the series.


[[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 and [=AirMan.EXE=]
-> 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 who has no combat gimmicks in contrast to the rest of the [=BN2=] Navis.
* BlowYouAway: [=AirMan=]'s attacks are wind-based.
* 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.
* StarterVillain: The very first of Gospel you encounter in ''2''.
* YouHaveFailedMe: In the second game he is blown up by a briefcase bomb after losing to Lan and [=MegaMan=].

!!Speedy Dave ''(Daisuke Hayami)'' and [=QuickMan.EXE=]
-> 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 ''Network Transmission'' 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).
* FragileSpeedster: [=QuickMan=] is really fast, but has low hitpoints.
* InformedAbility: As Chaud said, his IQ of 170(!!) didn't do him much good...

-> An autonavi that is [=ShadowMan=]'s Vice Commander. He is mainly responsible for deleting any survivor's that some how escaped [=ShadowMan=]'s attack. In the anime, he has five brother's who seek to avenge him after his deletion.

* BoisterousWeakling: For a guy that clean's up survivor's of a pro assassin he really isn't that threatening both in and out of battle. This is also true in the anime, where it only took one hit for MegaMan to delete him and later in the series where an alternate version of him is is obliterated with ease due to [=EraseMan=].
* OutOfFocus: In the game, he never really served a purpose, if you cut him out (no pun intended) the plot wouldn't really be affected. This is more so in the anime, in his official debut he only come's in during the last few minutes...before being deleted like it was nothing. It got to the point where his brother's receive more screen time than him.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: In the anime, he and his brother's all look like each other, except his brother's have some physical difference to tell them apart. (For example, one has thick eyebrows, one's way too thin, one has hair, etc.)
* ShearMenace

!!Mr. Dark/[[InconsistentDub Dusk]] ''(Dark Miyabi)'' and [=ShadowMan.EXE=]
-> 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's also a BonusBoss in the first game.
* FlechetteStorm: His [=NaviChip=], as well as an advance that utilizes it, [=BodyGuard=]. Stars everywhere!
* FuumaShuriken: [[IconicItem It wouldn't be [=ShadowMan=] without them.]]
* GratuitousNinja: It's nice to see that even in this advanced age, ninjas can and will still exist.
* HeelFaceTurn: He's only villainous in his first appearance. He joins up with Megaman's team in the fifth game and allows his protege to train Megaman in 6. Considering he's merely a hired hand, it's not all that surprising.
* InconsistentDub: In 5, he's renamed Dusk.
* 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.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Her main MO in the second game is to put up an act of not being good at netbattling while secretly taking out everyone involved in the international Net Official meeting one by one.
* 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, Fyrefox 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: Joins Team Colonel to fight Nebula.
* 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: Only in the fifth game and the anime.
* VagueAge: Her age seems to vary widely based on anime and game depictions and even in those they aren't consistant. In Battle Network 2 she appears to be in her late teens, but in the second season she appears to be a teen while in her princess garb, yet she only looks to be a year or two older than Lan and friends who are all kids when she's in her civilian disguise. In Battle Network 5 she appears in less elegant clothes and actually appears younger than in 2, again only appearing to a bit older than kid hero Lan like the anime. In Stream however she wears her Battle Network 5 outfit, but now seems to be much much older, towering over Lan and the other kids, and having a very mature looking figure, even shown drinking wine at one point suggesting she's at least 20.

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

* ArmorPiercingAttack: His battle chip in the second game can do this, even to himself.
* 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: He's ''painfully'' slow, but he's extremely strong and nigh invincible until he attacks.
* 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 in his case jumping forward). Worth mentioning that breaking chips (which can pierce through his defense) are scarce in the first three games. [=KnightMan=] is recruited into Team Colonel for this very reason.

!!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: [=ElecMan=] and Count Zap]] help [=MegaMan=] delete [=MagnetMan=].
* 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.
* ShipperOnDeck: He shows some approval to Tesla and Charlie being an item.
* 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]].
* VillainousCrossdresser: He does this in the anime.

-> 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.

!! [=FreezeMan=].EXE
Gospel's top commander navi.

* AdaptationalBadass: Despite being Gospel's leader on the navis' side, his boss fight is a joke thanks to his quadruple weakness to electric attacks. The anime on the other hand, shows why he's Gospel's top commander.
* AnIcePerson: He looks like a sentient icicle.
* DefrostingIceKing[=/=]TookALevelInKindness: His Zoanranoid counterpart in Beast is every bit as [[StealthPun cold hearted]] as his original version, but warms up to Ice Man and protects him from Zoanranoid Stone Man.
* ForMassiveDamage: He takes quadruple damage from electric attacks due to being an aqua navi standing on ice panels.
* MakingASplash: Since Battle Network classifies ice attacks as water, he's the only aqua navi in the second game.
* SpamAttack: His battle chip doesn't inflict a lot of damage, but he can attack multiple times potentially racking up damage, making him very useful against Heat Man and Napalm Man especially if you have a Lava Stage chip and a Fire element style change.
* TakingYouWithMe:[[spoiler: Averted. After he's beaten, he says that he is the third [=BluFrag=] and that with him deleted, [=BluCure=] cannot be made, leaving no way to break the blue ice programs. However, as he is the Command and Control Node for the [=DoS=] attack, all ice programs shatter with his deletion, making [=BluCure=] unnecessary.]]

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

* AbsenteeActor[=/=]AdaptedOut: [[spoiler:Sean never appears in the anime as his Gospel/Kid Grave disguise is a robot.]]
* 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.]]
* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler: Or rather, foster parents.]]
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: In 3.]]
* BrattyHalfPint[=/=]InsufferableGenius: [[spoiler: His Manga characterization. It really grinds on Chaud's nerves.]]
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler: His backstory.]]
* [[spoiler:GrandTheftMe: After being deactivated by Wily in the anime, his robot body gets taken over by [=Bass.EXE=].]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: 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.]]
* ImprobableAge: [[spoiler: Leader of a dangerous criminal organization at ten years old.]]
* NoMouth: [[spoiler: Although it turns out to be part of a holographic disguise.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Yeah...look at all that white.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler: Seriously, when a kid says "My computers are more honest than people", you know he's broken.]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Silver Hair]]

-> The main antagonists of 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.
* NeverFoundTheBody: In the fourth game. [[spoiler: He returns as the BigBad of the fifth game.]]
* 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.

-> Dr. Regal's [=NetNavi=] and the leader of the [=NetNavis=] in Nebula in Battle Network 4. Is succeeded by [=CosmoMan=].EXE. In the anime, he usurps [=ShadeMan=] as the leader of the Darkloids.

* AbnormalLimbRotationRange: Is capable of rotating his head a full 360 degrees in the anime. Justified in that he is designed to look robotic.
* AdaptationalBadass: In the games, while powerful, he's not that big of a threat. In the anime, however, he's capable of curbstomping [=Shademan=], who Lan and Chaud could barely defeat.
* AnArmAndALeg: Gets his hand cut off during his fight with [=MegaMan=] in the anime.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: He becomes the new leader of the Darkloids after deposing [=ShadeMan=].
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: In the anime, Dr. Regal uses data from viruses to create several giant copies of Laserman to attack the city. He even merges with one of them to fight Megaman.
* BadassBaritone: Has a deep, robotic voice in the anime.
* BadBoss: In the anime, he deletes a Darkloid when the latter questions his decision to make [[spoiler: Protoman]] his second in command. And he later orders [[spoiler: [=ProtoMan=]]] to kill [[spoiler: Ms. Yuri]] when her loyalty comes into question.
* CardCarryingVillain: Like his operator, he admits he is evil and mocks notions of justice.
* CastingAShadow: In [=BN4=], he forces the darkness in Megaman to come to life and fight him. There's also his Dark Laser attack, where he fires a laser from his eyes that creates a dark void to heal him.
* ChestBlaster: Can fire a laser from his chest in the anime.
* DarkIsEvil: Has black armor, uses darkchips, and seeks to conquer the world.
* DeathFromAbove: His Star Break Laser, where he fires a red laser at the ceiling that causes debris to fall from the sky.
* TheDragon: To Dr. Regal.
* DragonInChief: He is in charge of the Navis in Nebula.
* EvilWearsBlack: Has black armor.
* EyeBeams: His Cross Laser and Dark Laser.
* FrickinLaserBeams: [[CaptainObvious Well, duh.]]
* FusionDance: With Dr. Regal in the anime.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: In both the games and anime, [=LaserMan=] has little personality and is more or less your stereotypical villain. In the anime however, it's implied he's just a simple drone program if not something directly controlled by Regal himself since the Darkloids won't obey a human and isn't a real navi. Thus he has no true will of his own.
* HandBlast: His Disruption Beam, where he fires a blue laser from his hand that temporarily disables the customization screen if it hits.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Is defeated by [=MegaMan=] in both the games and anime. Particularly in the anime, both he and Regal are destroyed due to their Cross Fusion. While Regal is revealed to be alive in the movie, [=LaserMan=] is gone for good. As Regal could enter the net himself then he had no need of [=LaserMan=] anymore.]]
* LightIsNotGood: His powers are predominantly light-based, but he is just as evil as his operator.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: In both the games and anime, he mostly sits back and lets his subordinates do the work and doesn't take action himself until the finale. Taken literally in the anime as most of his onscreen appearances have him sitting on [=ShadeMan=]'s throne.
* PuppetKing: The anime heavily implies that he is just Regal's virtual mouthpiece.
* TalkingToThemself: Shares the same voice as Regal. Possibly because Regal's actually just talking through him directly.
* TronLines: Has blue lines running all over his armor.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Offers this to [=MegaMan=]. Works as well as you expect.
* YouCouldHaveUsedYourPowersForEvil: How he feels about [=MegaMan=].

!!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 [=MegaMan=] obtains Wind Soul where the characters trample her and in the [=MistMan=] episode she falls into the same traps Lan and Mayl did earlier and even plays keep away with [=MistMan=]'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 [=ProtoMan=] 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.
* SpikesOfVillainy: When she becomes Cross Fusion [=NeedleMan=] (the English dub even changes [=NeedleMan=]'s name to [=SpikeMan=]). 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]]. 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 [=MegaMan=] into using the Dark Chip he had dropped earlier. As he died he laughed that [=MegaMan=] 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 [=ShadeMan=] 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 [=LaserMan=] and later attacked them toward the end of the series, but was deleted by the [[FusionDance cross fusion]] of human and Navi.

* AdaptationalBadass: In the games, while he was a HopelessBossFight, he wasn't that much of a threat. In the anime, he's one of the strongest characters in the show.
* AnArmAndALeg: While several antagonists (including ShadeMan himself in episode 27) lose their arms after particularly powerful attack, ShadeMan's FamilyUnfriendlyDeath by the Cross Fused Regal included his right arm being shot off and his left arm being ''torn'' off. He is brought back in Stream, still armless, and ultimately takes Asteroid FlashMan's left arm and Beast Man's right.
* 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.
* CastingAShadow: Can create a hand of dark energy during his fights.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: His Noise Crush attack lets him step into your side of the field regardless of how many spaces you have.
* CurbStompBattle: His first meeting with Lan and Chaud has him one-shotting them with Noise Crush.
* TheDragon: To Dr. Regal in the anime.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Only teamed up with Regal to further his own goals and for the Darkchips. Once he found out that Regal knew how dangerous the darkchips were, he double crosses him.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Has a very deep voice in the original version.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Having both your arms violently ripped off and an explosion tear you apart from the inside isn't exactly approved for younger audiences. 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]]: In the games, he feeds on the energy of other Navis.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: With his intended "dessert" Roll.
* MadeOfIron: Even as far as [=NetNavis=] go, he's pretty damn durable. For one example, he was struck by a ''double Program Advance'' from Lan and Chaud, but aside from blowing off one of his arms, it didn't even slow him down.
* MakeMeWannaShout: His Noise Crush ability.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Ishihara stated he had an image of Nobunaga Oda in his mind when designing Shademan.EXE.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: A vampire-themed computer program.
* PowerFloats: He notably floats all the time, without the help of his wings. This is actually important when Megaman has to chase him to save Roll, has there's a giant gap in the way that Shademan just floats over.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: After using Rush to materialize himself into the real world without a dimensional area, he goes on a rampage throughout the city, destroying everything that belonged to Regal to draw him out.
* RubberMan: The anime gives Shademan the ability to stretch his arms.
* VerbalTic: Has a tendency to say "WHEE!" in the games.
* WingedHumanoid: He can turn his arms into wings, usually to perform his Noise Crush.
* WolverineClaws: His claws are his main weapons.


-> 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.
* {{Expy}}: His appearance, (particularly the shape of his head) large ego, constant [[SmugSmiler Smug Grin]], and tendency to panic when he loses has made some fans compair him with [[DragonBallZ Cell]].
* FlatCharacter: Like his predecessor [=LaserMan=], aside from wanting to plunge 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. Apparently it's a standard for many Aqua Navis.
* DemotedToExtra: [=BlizzardMan=] instead of having his other post-game areas he shares one with Cosmoman...''as a sub boss''.
* AnIcePerson
* TooDumbToLive: See [=CloudMan=]'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 fifth game instead of four ([=LaserMan=]'s fate is left ambiguous+.
* FourIsDeath: The fourth and most powerful of the Darkloids.
* ShockAndAwe: Elec-type Navi.
* SuicideAttack: He blows himself up to take out [=MegaMan=], [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo [=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 an 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, unfortunately those friends consisted of, a wood-element Navi (an element Cloudman is weak against), a Fire 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: Battle Network 4 Tournament Opponents]]
->The various tournament opponents that Lan encounters in the fourth game.

!! Terry Jomon and [=SparkMan.EXE=]
A robot specialist who wants to win the tournament so his grandfather, the owner of Jomon Electrics will give him funding for his projects.

* AdaptedOut: Terry never shows up in the anime.
* CastingAShadow[=/=]LivingShadow: [=SparkMan=] can summon his opponents' shadows to fight for him.
* CheatersNeverProsper[=/=]LaserGuidedKarma: He sends Lan a fake e-mail promising free PET maintenance, but is actually hacking into it so Lan can only use a folder with weak chips instead of his own so he can win the tournament. His grandpa helps Lan fix his PET and then expresses his disappointment in Terry and disowns him.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When [=SparkMan=] hijacks a train in the anime, he fills it mostly with Elec viruses, but also has some Fire viruses to counter any Wood Navis (Wood Man specifically) or chips that the opponent might use.
* LocomotiveLevel: His last appearance in Axess excluding ''The Great Net Police Battle'' has him taking over a train.
* NeverMyFault: Any Net Battle Terry loses, he blames on [=SparkMan=].
* ShockAndAwe: Spark Man is an Elec Navi.
* TakingYouWithMe: Right before he's deleted, he sabotages the train's braking system so the train will crash taking down [=MegaMan=], Lan, and [=WoodMan=].

!! Atsuki Homura and [=BurnerMan=].EXE
A young man who's very passionate about pyrotechnics, essentially a younger, ruder version of Mr. Match.

* AdaptedOut: Atsuki never shows up in the anime.
* EvilCounterpart[=/=]OlderHeroVsYoungerVillain: Calling Mr. Match a hero is stretching it, but otherwise, the trope stands.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's rude towards Mr. Match, calling him an old man and laughs at him and Fire Man for losing to Lan and Mega Man in the past.
* MeaningfulName: Homura means "flame'.
* OutOfFocus: Played with. As a Darkloid he gets more episodes than most and is around for a large chunk of Axess, but he never returns as either an Asteroid Navi, or a Zoanoid Navi unlike most of the rest.
* PlayingWithFire: [=BurnerMan=] is a Fire Navi.
* SoreLoser: When Lan defeats him in the tournament, he angrily tells Burner Man to burn down the whole building only to [[RumpRoast set himself on fire]] and [[ViolationOfCommonSense runs into an elevator]].
* TechnicolorFire: Unlike other Fire Navis, [=BurnerMan=] burns blue flames.

!! Ivan Chillski (Ivan Coolski) and [=ColdMan.EXE=]
A man from Sharo (the Battle Network version of Russia) and his Navi [=ColdMan=].

* AnimateInanimateObject: Cold Man is a walking, talking refrigerator.
* DubNameChange: Cold Man is called Fridge Man in the anime's English dub. Unlike the other name changes in the dub, this one actually makes more sense since he is indeed a sentient refrigerator.
* AnIcePerson: [=ColdMan=].
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Cold Man wears one.
* TooDumbToLive: Ivan takes control of weather computers all over the world so he can cause blizzards in Netopia because its too hot for him, not realizing he can just take off his coat.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: The well intentioned part is debatable, but in the anime, Ivan lost his job due to the company running low on funds to support his compression research, when he receives Asteroid Cold Man, they begin compressing Navis all over the world, which leads to Chaud, Proto Man, and Raoul arresting Ivan and deleting Cold Man.

!! Tensuke Takumi and [=TopMan.EXE=]
An elderly man who wants to bond with his grandson by playing with tops.

* AdaptedOut: His twin brother never shows up in the anime.
* BadassGrandpa: When his top goes out of control, he jacks in Top Man to delete the viruses, which normally wouldn't be impressive, but remember that tops spin which means its difficult to aim properly when the jack in port keeps changing locations.
* BattleTops: His only hobby are tops.
* CoolOldGuy: He becomes this at the end of his only anime appearance. [=TopMan=] is a straighter example.
* GrumpyOldMan[=/=]ScrewPolitenessImASenior: He doesn't get along with other people, not even other seniors initially and has a habit of yelling at everyone when he thinks the other seniors are implying he's stupid for not understanding the [[ElementalRockPaperScissors elemental type match ups]].
* PaletteSwap: The only design difference Tensuke and his twin brother have is that he wears red while his brother wears green.
* PerpetualFrowner: Tying to GrumpyOldMan above. This makes his interactions with [[PetTheDog Kousuke]] jarring, all because characters can only have one mugshot (except in Double Team DS).
* PetTheDog: He genuinely loves his grandson Kousuke which is why he's trying to learn how to properly use the battle chips. Taken UpToEleven when his mechanical top gets infected by a virus and scans Kousuke as its target and he practically begs Lan to help Kousuke and when the top scans Lan as its new target, he warns him to run.

!! Shuko Kido and [=AquaMan.EXE=]
An unlucky girl working hard to support her younger twin brothers.

* BadassAdorable: You know you're badass when you're a kid yet able to help [=MegaMan=] delete [=BurnerMan=].
* BornUnlucky[=/=]CuteClumsyGirl: Though not really in a funny way.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [=AquaMan=] gets possessed by Reverse in ''Legend of Network''. He is also posessed by [=MegaMan=] DS courtesy of [=LaserMan=] in the fourth game.
* DubNameChange: [=AquaMan=] is called [=SpoutMan=] in the anime's English dub, which oddly transferred over to the sixth game.
* GirlishPigtails: Shuko styles her hair this way.
* MakingASplash: [=AquaMan=] is an [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Aqua Navi]].
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: Keeps changing jobs due to her bad luck.
* OcularGushers: [=AquaMan=] cries so much to the point of ''flooding the entire internet'', all due to a misunderstanding.
* OutOfContextEavesdropping: When she and her brothers are thinking about replacing their washing machine, [=AquaMan=] thinks they're talking about him and want to throw him out for a new Navi.
* ParentalSubstitute: She's this for her brothers while Higsby is this for her.
* PromotionToParent: Her parents have already passed away leaving her to raise her twin brothers. Thankfully, said brothers are either in high school or college and able to pull some of their weight around when it comes to supporting their family.
* VagueAge: Looks young enough to pass as a teenager, but then her younger twin brothers are already in high school age. She is even a schoolteacher by the sixth game.
* WeakButSkilled: [=AquaMan=]'s Soul Unison and Soul Cross doesn't inflict a lot of damage, but has a very fast charge rate, similar to any Aqua element style change from the second and third games.

!! Viddy Narcy ''(Narcy Hide)'' and [=VideoMan.EXE=]
An aspiring filmmaker (and a very flamboyant one at that) who joins Neo WWW in the anime when he believes no one appreciates his ideas.

* 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 [=TenguMan=].
* DittoFighter: [=VideoMan=] can create a copy of [=MegaMan=] to fight for him.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Seriously, just look at him. Viddy even lampshades this, claiming to "have gone beyond gender".
* EvilIsPetty: Some of his evil plans involve getting revenge on people who have (from his perspective) wronged him, such as kidnapping Dex to make a huge pot of curry so he can drown Jawaii Island because he used to work for their tourism office but got fired.
* NeverMyFault:
** After losing to Lan and [=MegaMan=] in the fourth game tournament, he fully blames [=VideoMan=] for the loss and calls him a "useless Navi".
** During his very short lived HeelFaceTurn in the anime, he wins Yai's Navi design contest, but gets disqualified since the contest is for kids. He accuses Yai of humiliating him, but as Yai points out, it was his own fault for not reading the rules.
* RealMenWearPink: Well, he certainly has this mindset.
* TimeMaster: [=VideoMan=] can fast forward to accelerate himself and rewind to heal some damage.

!!Lilly (Igarashi Ran) and [=WindMan.EXE=]

* BlowYouAway[=/=]WindFromBeneathMyWings: [=WindMan=] of course.
* LadyDrunk: Lilly drinks when she's nervous.
* NoSell: Since [=WindMan=] is floating, panels do not affect him and Mega Man's Wind Soul negates enemy auras.
* SplitPersonality: Changes into a more violent version of herself anytime she gets drunk.

!! [=JunkMan.EXE=]
A solo Net Navi who joins the tournament to have one last fight before his data decays.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome[=/=]WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In the anime, he never appears again after the Axess finale except for his Zoano counterpart in Beast.
* ExtraOreDinary: Most of his junk are metallic.
* KilledOffForReal: After the tournament match against Lan and Mega Man, his data decays.
* RecycledInSpace: In the anime, he resides in space.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: He never decays in the anime.

[[folder:Duo's Comet]]
%%Duo is an alien being, not an executable program. No ".EXE" here.
-> 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 definitely 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: Vaguely humanoid and is apparently a kind of being analogous to Navis.
* HumongousMecha: His battle-body's aesthetic. His official art emphasizes how humongous he is.
* LightEmUp: Downplayed. Duo has a laser-cannon in the center of his battle-body, but the real danger is that he makes it impossible to use Dark Chips in battle.
* 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.

* RedEyesTakeWarning

* 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.

A male survivor from the lost Atlampian Civilization. After awakening in the year 200X he discarded his name and called himself Nobody. Believing that the modern day Net Society stole its technology from the Atlampians and angered at its use by WWW, Net Mafia Gospel and Nebula, he believes that humanity had no future and decides to destroy the world by reviving the Atlampian's Trojan Horse.

He commands another Atlampian survivor named Sherrice to retrieve the codes and program to revive the Trojan Horse. He is eventually defeated by Lan and [=MegaMan.EXE=] who had help from a mysterious person called "L.o.N.". The destruction of the Trojan Horse destroyed the server of the Atlampian Ruins, releasing electromagnetic waves and opened a hole in time and space which sent him back 3000 years into the past, some time after the fall of the Atlampian Civilization. There he saw that the Atlampian people survived despite that their society fell; this revelation made him have a change of heart. He then made messages to help Lan in the future to stop himself in that era, signing them as "L.o.N."[[note]]Legacy of Nobody[[/note]]

* LastOfHisKind: In the era of 20XX, he is the last male of the Atlampian Civilization.

* MysteriousBenefactor: Will have had been the person called L.o.N. who is the one who was sending messages to Lan to stop the himself in the era of 20XX.
* PetTheDog: After returning to the past, he found Sherrice's mother's heirloom and set things up so that it can be found in the 20XX era so that Sherrice can have it.

* HumanPopsicle: Just like Nobody, she was placed in cold sleep before the fall of the Atlampian Civilization.

* TheMole: Pretends to be an Official [=NetBattler=] from Netopia to infiltrate [=SciLab=].
* {{Otaku}}: Of {{Period Piece}}s. The reason [=RideMan.EXE=] is modeled after a {{cowboy}} is that she likes [[TheWestern Westerns]].
* ParentalAbandonment: Considering that Sherrice was in cold sleep for 3000 years, her mother has long since been dead.
* PhenotypeStereotype: She has blonde hair with blue eyes and is from Netopia, the series' equivalent of the Americas and Europe.

!'''[[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 Creator/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.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the manga, he becomes less omnicidal after his defeat and begrudgingly helps Megaman fight the Darkloids and Cybeasts, though the latter is mostly because [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou he doesn't want anyone else to defeat his rival]]. Interestingly, whatever's left of Serenade claims that Bass actually does see Megaman as his friend, but doesn't admit it out of pride.
* AllEncompassingMantle
* ArmCannon: Two of them just like his classic incarnation. In his first appearance, all his attacks are down with them.
* AxeCrazy: Bass's ultimate life goal? [[KillEmAll The complete and utter annihilation of net society and human life.]] After the third game, he loses sight of this for a time, but in the final title it comes back full swing via consuming Cybeast data to wreak havoc on the world.
* {{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 Scilab.
* 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). And these are not counting the mobile phone gaiden games ''Rockman.EXE Phantom of Network'' and ''Rockman.EXE Legend of Network''.[[/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.
* FreudianExcuse: If his manga backstory is to be believed (considering the fact that his current condition was not explained all that well), then he was actually a pretty decent and kind Navi at the start. He was rather condescending towards other Navis due to how advanced he was, but ultimately wanted to help others just like any Navi by getting people to develop better security systems (he also shows a surprisingly ''[[SugarAndIcePersonality cute]]'' side to him when pacified by Dr. Cossack). Unfortunately, people feared him for his powers, and ended up locking him away when they realized that they could not control him. Then there was the incident where he was blamed for Alpha's mess and well... it's hard not to be bitter and cynical when the entire world has declared you the source of all of their problems.
* 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 and thus able to fuse with the original Bass as well.
* 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. It IS possible to bring his HP to 1 via poison chips, but they won't delete him, rendering the fight as this no matter what.
* HumansAreBastards: What he believes.
* IdentityAmnesia: After returning from deletion in being consumed by Alpha in the fourth game, Bass shows no recollection of any past events, and even speaks in a slightly different manner -- slower, and more deliberate. However, he is compelled to return to MegaMan and challenge him every time he detects him.
* 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: Hates ''all'' humans for the ordeals he's been through. Even his creator, Dr. Cossack, is barely able to get through to him.
* MultipleChoicePast: In the games, Bass was created by Dr. Cossack as one of, if not the first independent Navis. In the anime, Bass is Pharaoh Man's reincarnation.
* [[HumanoidAbomination Navigational Abomination]]: Once a normal [=NetNavi=], he's become [[PersonOfMassDestruction much,]] [[PhysicalGod MUCH]] [[StayingAlive more]] than that.
* TheresNoKillLikeOverkill: His program advance from Battle Network 2, Darkness. He first has Gospel hit all panels in a fan-shaped pattern for ''3000'' damage. If that somehow doesn't kill the opposing side (highly unlikely given that the Final Boss has a mere 2000 HP), then Bass nukes a 9 x 9 area in front of Mega Man for ''another 3000'' damage.
* 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.
* ThePowerOfHate: Oh, ''hell'' yes. Bass ''thrives'' on this openly, feeling that all notions of bonds or dependability is weakness fit only to be culled by him personally.
* SoreLoser: He doesn't take defeat well and will constantly berate you for being a pathetic weakling. ''Despite the fact that you have defeated him several times.''
* RuleOfCool: Despite the character designer's rule that no cloth should be used on the design of any Cyberworld inhabitant (to preserve a 'digital' look and feel) Bass's cloak is an exception simply because the designer couldn't imagine him without one.
* ScarsAreForever: The slash on his chest was caused by a security navi who attempted to delete him when Alpha went haywire.
* ShadowArchetype: To [=MegaMan=]. Note how the scar through Bass' chest happens at a slant not unlike Mega's own Navi Mark.
* 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 World's 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.]]

!! [=BrightMan.EXE=]
A Navi taken over by the fake Zero Virus vaccine in Network Transmission. Shows up as a Darkloid and Asteroid Navi in the anime.

* AdaptationalVillainy: In Network Transmission, he was only fought due to the fake vaccine infecting him. In the anime, he's a Darkloid.
* CanonForeigner: His operator was never seen in the games, but Stream introduces a minor criminal who needs to give 100 cars to a mob boss to save his girlfriend and is given Asteroid Bright Man by Slur.
* Catchphrase: The Japanese version of the anime has him saying "Yo! Check it out!" every so often.
* ShockAndAwe: He's an Elec Navi.

-> 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 to be a reference to it along with Colonel and Iris.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: He holds nothing against Megaman for coming to delete him and, after being defeated, is quite accepting of deletion. [[spoiler: Thankfully, if you have the [=MystData=], there's no need for him to die.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: If you manage to find the [=MystData=] before you face him for the final time, Lan's dad will figure out how to turn Zero into a Navi. He also leads the authorities right to the Professor's location in the finale, turning the BittersweetEnding into a happy one.]]
* 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: It's the ''proto''type of the Internet. A piece of software in its ''alpha'' phase is unfinished and in the early testing stages.
* 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.

!! [=BowlMan=].EXE
A Navi with a bowling theme associated with the Undernet in the third game's Blue version.

* AdaptationalVillainy: While he can't be considered a hero in Battle Network 3 since he's associated with the Undernet, he wasn't a villain in any sense either, honoring his agreement of telling Mega Man everything he knows about Serenade if Mega Man wins in battle. In the anime, he's a Darkloid.
* AssholeVictim: True, while in the anime he is a Darkloid and thus a villain, it's not like had a choice in that matter as he like, [=ProtoMan=] was turned into one thru a Dark Chip. However unlike [=ProtoMan=], the protagonists never got to knew that fact so unfortunately for him...
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He does not tolerate cheating (or attempts) at bowling.
* EvilCounterpart: To [=MistMan=] in a meta sense. They're both version exclusive bosses and fulfill the same plot role of being the #2 ranked Undernet Navi.
* SpamAttack: The attack where he shoots bowling pins at you. It's not hard to dodge, but it does go on for a while.

!! [=MistMan=].EXE
A genie-esque Navi associated with the Undernet in the third game's White version.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: When you're fighting him, you're supposed to attack his lamp, not [=MistMan=] himself.
* AdaptationalHeroism: He wasn't really villainous in the games, but he's still associated with the Undernet. In the anime, he's an ally to [=MegaMan=], Lan, and Mayl.
* BadassBeard: Sports a thick one that completely obscures his mouth.
* GoodCounterpart: To [=BowlMan=] in a meta sense. They're both version exclusive bosses and fulfill the role of being the #2 ranked Undernet Navi. Unlike [=BowlMan=] however, [=MistMan=] was not turned into a Darkloid in the anime.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor[=/=]MyMasterRightOrWrong: Hilariously justified since he has to obey whoever's holding his lamp. If Mayl is holding it, [=MistMan=] attacks [=SwordMan=] and [=FridgeMan=], if Ms. Yuri is holding it, [=MistMan=] attacks Cross Fusion [=MegaMan=].
* OurGeniesAreDifferent
* PoisonousPerson: He can use mist like poison as an attack.

!! [=YamatoMan=] ([=JapanMan=].EXE)
A samurai Navi residing in the secret area of the Undernet and one of Serenade's minions.

* AdaptationalVillainy: He shows up in the anime as an Asteroid Navi and Zoanoroid.
* BladeOnAStick: A laser-pointed spear as his main weapon.
* DubNameChange: The English version of Battle Network 3 changes his name to Japan Man.
* InterserviceRivalry: He doesn't get along well with [=DarkMan=] even though they share a common goal; guarding Serenade.
* PunchClockVillain: He sees [=MegaMan=] as a child and feels bad for fighting him, but he's only following Serenade's orders.
* {{Samurai}}
* SpinToDeflectStuff: He does this if you try to attack him with gun type attacks, including the Mega Buster.
* TinTyrant: Especially as a Zoanoroid.
* ZergRush: On low health, he summons his foot soldiers to swarm the battlefield and steal [=MegaMan=]'s panel.

!! [=DarkMan=].EXE
An assassin Navi residing in the secret area of the Undernet and one of Serenade's minions.

* CastingAShadow: Can create shadows that shapeshifts into axes and swords.
* DarkIsEvil: Let's just say he's less honorable than [=YamatoMan=].
* DirtyCoward: His stronger random encounter versions don't show up unless [=MegaMan=] is suffering a glitch from the Navi Customizer.
* FireIceLightning: Alternates between three colors which determines what element will he use; purple (default) for fire, blue for ice, yellow for lightning.


* 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 and electricity 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. It's also why both of them have such a similar wolf-like shape.
* CanisMajor: Compared to [=MegaMan=], Greiga is [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever several stories tall]].
* CollapsingCeilingBoss: One of its attacks is to repeatedly jump around the arena, causing damaging chunks of cyber-rubble to land on the player's area.
* [[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. Gregar doesn't take after Gospel, ''Gospel takes after him''.
* 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'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 Central 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
* BlowYouAway: A T-shaped tornado breath, as a counterpart to Gregar's electric one.
* 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
* OvershadowedByAwesome: In the anime, Gregar has more Zoanoroids working for him especially since he has Zoano Pharoah Man who has the ability to convert other navis into Gregar's soldiers, successfully corrupted Beyonard Colonel, and the war between the two Cybeasts results in Falzar losing and getting absorbed by Gregar.
* PlayingWithFire: Has the ability to summon fiery birdlings.
* 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.
