open/close all folders
Mega Man Volnutt
- Accidental Pervert: Walked in on Roll while she was changing in Legends 1, and walked in on her while she was in the bathtub in Legends 2.
- Arm Cannon: Naturally, but in this case, he can have two at a time. Given his history, his primary might or might not be part of his body or part of his armor.
- Ambiguous Robot: In the first game, it's not entirely clear throughout it whether he's a robot or a kid wearing Power Armor. The ending does eventually confirm that he is indeed a Ridiculously Human Robot.
- All-Loving Hero
- Badass: He's a digger. This means battling Reaverbots as big as he is or larger on a regular basis with an arsenal of rocket launchers, lasers, energy busters, and more.
- Batman Can Breathe in Space: Mega Man has no problems breathing underwater in the Nino Islands dungeon. Justified, as he was given a rebreather before entering that dungeon.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: May or may not have this with Sera. Who knows what's gonna happen after he got stuck in Elysium with her at end of the second game.
- Capcom vs. Whatever: Showed up in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom as a playable character, and even earlier than that was the Japan only Namco X Capcom.
- Charged Attack: Had the traditional Charge Shot in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, but not yet in any of the actual Legends games. The design team had an idea on how to implement it, though.
- Chick Magnet: Roll and Tron are both head-over-heels in love with him, but we also have Yuna, and probably Sera. There's a piece of official art of Volnutt getting crushed as all four of the girls try cozying up to him at once.
- Covert Pervert: Walks in on a nude Roll once per game, and has mentioned he wouldn't mind reading some lewd magazines in the first game.
- Crossdressing Voices: In both Japanese and English.
- Dark and Troubled Past: His real name is Mega Man Trigger. He was the closest friend of the Master, the last true human in the world, who upon his death bid Trigger to destroy the Master System that oversaw the operations of the world now. However, he and one of the mother units, Sera, fought to a standstill, forcing him to enter a repair and diagnostics standby mode as he transferred all his memories to Data. He was found in this state by Barrell and raised as Mega Man Volnutt.
- Expy: Of the original Mega Man. His backstory however makes him something of a counterpart to Zero, given his sealing in stasis and revival to fight against the system he helped bring into power.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: The Shining Laser is his most powerful weapon, able to rapidly deplete any opponent's health in seconds (if they let him hold still to aim it).
- Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: He is the only Mega Man incarnation who doesn't wear a helmet by default. While he can wear one in both games, don't expect to see him wearing one in any other appearances.
- The Hero: The main good guy, which in his game, means going into dungeons and battling Reavers while the rest support him from the Flutter.
- Love Triangle: With Roll and Tron. He can be considered the Archie to Roll's Betty and Tron's Veronica.
- Oblivious to Love: He is oblivious of any affections directed towards him by any of the female characters.
- Oh Crap!: He gets this reaction in the first game when the first boss suddenly comes back to life and follows him outside of the prelude dungeon.Mega Man Volnutt: Back for more!?
- Macross Missile Massacre: He can do this with the fully upgraded Active Buster.
- Multi-Ranged Master: His arsenal of weapons is enormous, including a variety of bomb and missile launchers, lasers, and energy projectiles. His Blade Arm even allows him to fire Sword Beams.
- Mr. Fanservice: Explains his status as the Fandom Bicycle by the Legends fandom.
- Nice Guy: A defining trait is how gosh darn nice and heroic he is.
- One-Man Army: The Bonne family have a fleet of ships. The Casket family only has Mega Man. That's all they need. It's practically lampshaded when Mega Man deals critical damage to their airship, and Tiesel exclaims "what kind of firepower are they packing on that little ship?" And in the backstory, he fought against all the armies of Elysium and won.
- Powered Armor: Maybe? Mini-Mecha and cybernetics are common, but no one else has power armor that streamlined, so it's unclear whether his armor is powered or not. He's definitely replacing his right arm with the special weapons, as some of them are too short for his forearm to fit.
- Really 700 Years Old: Barrell found him sealed in a ruin, so it's hard to tell how old Volnutt really is. His current form is a result of resting his body to a state of infancy who-knows-how-long ago, after his first bout with Sera left him critically wounded. Even before then, he was serving the Master on Elysium as a Purifier Unit for what may have been centuries.
- Ridiculously Human Robot: Like other characters in the series, it's hard to draw the line between human and robot with him, as Cyborgs are commonplace, but he mostly leans to the latter. Played straight when you find out he isn't a cyborg like everyone else, he's actually a robot built by the Master.
- Swiss Army Appendage: While his right arm is always equipped with his handy Mega Buster, his left arm can be fitted with such attachments as machine guns, drills, and even the Z-Saber/Zetsabre.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Pizza.
- Transferable Memory: Trigger stored the memories of his past life, along with any essential files, in Data, making sure that Sera would not obtain The Master's genetic code.
- Trauma-Induced Amnesia: Justified due to the above statement, but it wasn't a direct result of trauma.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Roll; it's obvious they have feelings for each other, but nothing comes of it.
- Unwanted Harem: This◊ official art proves it!
- Worthy Opponent: To both the Bonne Family and Sera. Over the series they develop a grudging respect for him.
- Would Hit a Girl: He came to blows with Sera in the backstory.
- Remember the first time you went on a dig, Mega Man? I wasn't used to being a Spotter... and you ended up getting lost underground for three days! Remember? We were lucky that Gramps came to help us... I don't know what I would've done if he hadn't been there...
- Ace Pilot: If it moves, she'll know how to pilot it. Boat, spotter car, airship, train? Not a problem for her.
- Adaptational Badass: The original Roll was pretty much an extra that got a few playable appearances as a Joke Character. This Roll is an Ace Pilot, Gadgeteer Genius, and Mission Control.
- Betty and Veronica: The sweet and nice Betty to Tron's Tsundere Veronica, for Mega Man.
- Expy: Of the original Roll.
- Cannot Spit It Out: The games drop several hints that she has a crush on Mega Man, but she never comes out with it.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Found some old broken drill or toy laser sword? Take it to Roll and she'll figure out how to make a new weapon out of it! As the Abridged Series puts it: "Builds WMDs out of junk."
- Mission Control: She's Mega Man's spotter in the Flutter and builds weapons for him.
- Parental Abandonment: They disappeared on digs, so she was raised by her grandfather.
- Romance Sidequest: Both games have the option to bring her various gifts.
- Teen Genius: She does all of the above as a teenager.
- Voice with an Internet Connection: How she comunicates with Mega Man while he's underground.
- Wrench Wench: She can't help herself. She saw a broken boat in the first game and spontaneously decided to fix it.
- Hi! My name's Data! But you already knew that, didn't you? I mean, we've been friends for years, right? Come talk to me if you want to save, ok?Voiced by Ikue Otani (Japanese)
- Big Damn Heroes: At the end of the first game, he shows up out of nowhere and prevents the extinction of all the people on Kattelox Island.
- Meaningful Name: He acts as your save point. He also holds data on Mega Man's previous life.
- Neuro-Vault: He's Mega Man's backup unit.
- Non-Human Sidekick: He helps Mega Man with save points and health recharges.
- Team Pet: For the Casket Family.
- Affably Evil: He seems like a pretty fun guy to be around, if you're not his enemy.
- Anime Hair: You don't get spikes like that in the real world.
- Big Bad: Not of the series, mind you, but of a Chinese PC game called Rockman DASH: Adventure to Save the Planet.
- Distressed Dude: He and Bon Bonne are kiddnapped after Misadventure's first playable segment.
- Even Evil Has StandardsTeisel Bonne: We may be pirates, but we're not barbarians. We'll let them keep the toilet paper.
- Evil Is Petty: He absolutely refuses to get involved with the battle, he left it to Tron and Bon to handle... then a news broadcast of Mega Man's heroism interrupts his favorite TV show. Cue Jaw Drop and eventual outrage.
- Face Death with Dignity / Graceful Loser: When Mega Man damages the Focke Wolf (a flying mecha currently over the clouds) beyond repair, and everybody thinks the Bonnes are about to fall to their deaths, he comforts Tron by saying, "You tried your best, and sometimes that's not enough, but it's all you can be asked to do. He beat us fair and square. That's how life is sometimes."
- Guest Star Party Member: He's the person piloting the Gustaf at the start of the game, with Tron acting as his spotter. He's quickly kidnapped. During the final segment of the game, both Tron and Teisel are inside the Gustaf, as shown by them fighting for space on the pause screen.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He tries to be a genuine menace, but is too silly and incompetent to view as one.
- It's Personal: After the Evil Is Petty moment above, when Mega Man destroys the Marlwolf, Tiesel makes it his mission to defeat him as a matter of principle.
- Large Ham: Tiesel has three tones of voice — talking normally, shouting, and shouting louder. The first does not get used nearly as much as the other two.
- Loveable Rogue: He may be a pirate but he's so darn funny!
- Manipulative Bastard: Near the end of Legends 1, he manages to smooth talk Mega Man into letting him go by claiming that he's giving up. He also claims, at the end of The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, that he wanted Lex Loathe to force him to be a miner to work off his debt, because Loathe's mining facility is the location of yet another legendarily huge refractor.
- No Indoor Voice: "I SAID, clo-o-o-ose the HATCH!"
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: For some reason Teisel has bright red eyes, cybernetics perhaps?
- Strong Family Resemblance: He looks almost exactly like his father...if it weren't for the red eyes and crazy hairstyle.
- Worthy Opponent: Although Teisel's early defeats by "a mere blue boy" invoke This Cannot Be! reactions, he eventually starts to see Mega Man as this after the Bonnes' best efforts continue to be thwarted by him.
- Animal Mecha: Most of the major robots she builds fit into this theme.
- Anime Hair: Not as out-there as Tiesel's, but it's still pretty silly.
- Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Roll's Betty towards Mega Man.
- Bishonen Line: In a sense — her "masterpiece", Theodore Bruno, is the most humanoid of her robots and definitely the strongest.
- Breakout Character: Along with Mega Man himself, she's the character everyone knows. She got her own spinoff for a reason.
- Capcom vs. Whatever: She's showed up in a few of these games, the latest being Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Project X Zone.
- Distressed Damsel: In Misadventures, she's kidnapped near the end of the game. A servbot drives the Gustaf solo to rescue her.
- Evil Counterpart: To Roll, as the weapons expert of the Bonnes who builds and pilots their robots.
- Friendly Enemy: Towards Denise in The Misadventures of Tron Bonne. She's always eager to offer a few comforting words whenever she defeats the latter.
- Loveable Rogue: Just like Tiesel, she's very likeable for a pirate.
- Mission Control: During Teisel's short stint as a playable charcter, she acts as his spotter.
- Punny Name: If you're going by the Japanese and the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 pronunciation of her last name as "Bone", that is. Somewhat fitting, considering the series' habit of naming its various characters after musical terms and instruments.
- Teen Genius: She may be a teenager, but she has the skills to build and repair robots the size of houses.
- Tsundere: Normally very hot-tempered and angry, but she has a soft side that comes out sometimes.
- She's Got Legs: Damn.◊
- Strong Family Resemblance: She looks exactly like her mother.
- Team Mom: For the Servbots.
- Villain Protagonist: During the prequel, as she's the player character for 99% of the game (though you actually control her mech, not her directly, unless one counts the static image of her at the base).
- Villainesses Want Heroes: She wants Mega Man Volnutt.
- Why Did It Have To Be Dogs?: Fears dogs a lot, to the point she'll jump to a lightpost from the smallest puppy.
- Ambiguously Human: Is he a baby perpetually inside a mecha or a childlike robot treated like family? No one really knows.
- Macross Missile Massacre: He can fire a salvo of missiles during the first encounter with him.
- Made of Iron: In Legends 2, he sinks into some lava in the third main dungeon, yet appears soon after fit as a fiddle.
- Punny Name: Going by the pronunciation of their surname in the English dubbing of the actual game, it sounds like bon bon (a cutsey name for the baby of the family).
- Verbal Tic: "Babuu!" As he's still a baby, it's the only word he knows how to say.
- Intelligible Unintelligible: Somehow Teisel and Tron seem to understand what he's saying.
- The Dragon: The favorite essentially acts as this to Tron.
- Guest Star Party Member: There's a casino Mission the favorite Servbot can undertake if Tron elects to take a nap. During the final Segment of the game, Tron is kidnapped and the Favorite Servbot drives the Gustaff solo to rescue her.
- Invincible Minor Minion: In Misadventures, you are required to exploit this by having them walk into otherwise dangerous situations.
- Iron Buttmonkey: Pun not intended.
- Mascot Mook
- Took a Level in Badass: The Favorite Servbot becomes the Player Character when Tron's kidnapped.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Curry.
- Ambiguously Gay
- Never Found the Body: He is never seen or heard from again after Legends 2's train battle, leaving his ultimate fate ambiguous.
- The Rival: To the Bonne family. He and Teisel don't get along at all.
- Smug Snake
- Big Bad: Of The Misadventures of Tron Bonne.
- Loan Shark
- Shout-Out Theme Naming: He seems to be named after Lex Luthor.
- Butt Monkey: Repeatedly fails to apprehend Tron, frequently gets in trouble with Da Chief, and is usually buried in paperwork.
- The Cameo: She shows up as a weather reporter in Mega Man Megamix.
- Failure Hero: No matter how hard she tries, she just can't seem to stop Tron's various heists and destructive antics.
- Fair Cop
- Hero Antagonist
- Not a Morning Person
- Throw the Dog a Bone: At the end of The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, Tron drops Mr. Loath and Glyde in her office, which is enough to trick Da Chief in thinking she caught them. Of course, she's now stuck writing another report on how she did it.
Bola and Klaymoor
- Badass Grandpas: Not actually granddads (that we know of), but still pretty badass.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad
- Theme Naming: Both are named for weapons (in the international versions).
- Tin Tyrant: Klaymoor.
Verner von Bluecher
- Voiced by Kent Sheridan (English)
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: This◊ is the master. Would you know without being told that's a guy?
- Go Out with a Smile: He died happy and peaceful.
- Last of His Kind: He is the last original human; all the humans you interact with are artificial humans called Carbons.
- The Master: A rare heroic version, or at least not evil.
- Posthumous Character: He's long dead by the time the games begin.
- Really 700 Years Old: He's 3000 years old.
- Walking Spoiler: It's impossible to discuss who he is without revealing a significant chunk of the story.
- Voiced by Akemi Kanda (Japanese)
Mega Man Juno
- Affably Evil: Unfailingly polite. Courteous to what he believes are his superiors. Tries to help what he thinks is a malfunctioning unit. Treats genocide of the Carbons like it was taking out the trash.
- Big Bad: Arguably, of Legends 1. He is the ultimate threat of the game, but since he only appears near the end of the game, he falls more into Greater Scope Villain, see below.
- Big Words: During their final battle, his first statement is that he's going to "exercise my prerogative of correctional dispensation". This confuses Volnutt so badly that he has to rephrase it to "I'm going to exercise my authority to terminate your programming.".
- Captain Ersatz: Juno reminds some players of Xelloss from the Slayers series, from the perpetually closed eyes to the creepy carefree smile. Both characters are also voiced by Akira Ishida.
- Eyes Always Shut: He only opens his eyes once when he's reactivated, though they do change shape with his expressions when closed.
- Expy: Of Sigma. Both leave their heads behind after being defeated the first time, which then flies up and attaches to a larger body.
- Final Boss: In Legends 1.
- Graceful Loser: He accepts his defeat, saying he was destroyed in the process of doing his duties, and will await for his back-up program to be reactivated. He further notes that given that Volnutt is a purifier model and he's a bureaucratic model, he wasn't expecting to win anyway; you're built for combat, he isn't.
- Greater Scope Villain: He only appears near the end of the game, but manages to be far worse than The Bonnes.
- Knight of Cerebus: Although he doesn't appear until very late in Legends 1, the game takes a considerably darker turn when he shows up, especially in comparison to the villains the player had been fighting up until now.
- One-Winged Angel: After being defeated once, his head floats up and attaches to a larger body.
- Person of Mass Destruction: He is Kattelox Island's legendary disaster, who can singlehandedly initialize a program to kill all the inhabitants.
- Raymanian Limbs
- Sealed Evil in a Can
- Villainous Breakdown: Sort of. When he goes One-Winged Angel, his voice gets deeper and he starts yelling a lot more, and after taking enough damage, he screams "How dare you!?". As soon as he's defeated, though, he's right back to his mild-mannered self.
- You Gotta Have Pink Hair: His hair is a pink-violet color.
- Ambiguously Brown: Except in her second One-Winged Angel form.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: May or may not have this with Mega Man Trigger.
- Big Bad: She's the main antagonist of Legends 2.
- The Chessmaster: Manipulated the Carbons and Mega Man to gather the keys to the Mother Lode for her plan.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: She is jealous of Mega Man Trigger because the Master showed him affections he never showed her.
- Final Boss: In Legends 2. This also means she's the Final Boss of the entire original series, since Legends 2 is the last chronological entry.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: After being defeated, her own body dies, but she somehow transfers her mind to Yuna's original empty body.
- Naked First Impression: She's nude when she first appears.
- One-Winged Angel: She does this twice during the final battle.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: The yang to Yuna's yin.
- Worthy Opponent: She regards Mega Man as one to her.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair
- Unknown Rival: She viciously hates Mega Man, but he has no idea who she is. Thank his Laser-Guided Amnesia for that.
- The Unfavorite / Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: All she really wanted was for the Master to smile at her the way he smiled at Trigger, and she could not comprehend why he favored the company of a simple Purifier Unit over a Mother Unit like herself. The only way she could think of to win his approval was to devote herself fully to her duties as Mother Unit over the System.note Sera noticed that her efforts only seemed to make the Master sad, and she couldn't understand why.
- Zettai Ryouiki: A narrow band of skin is visible on her upper thigh.
- Voiced by John Cleland (English)
- Ambiguously Brown
- One-Winged Angel: He can transform into a large golden birdlike Reaverbot.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: The yang to Gatz's yin.
- Taking You with Me: He pulls this on Volnutt after being defeated, critically wounding him.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair
- Ambiguously Brown: In her own body, at least.
- Expy: She really looks like Miku Hatsune (right down to the Twin Tails and Zettai Ryouiki) with darker skin and red eyes. One may wonder if she's the basis for Miku.
- Mission Control: She acts as Volnutt's spotter in Elysium.
- Grand Theft Me: She takes over the body of Roll's mother for most of the game.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: The yin to Sera's yang.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: May or may not have this with Mega Man Trigger.
- Twin Tails: Her original body.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair
- Zettai Ryouiki: In her own body again.
- Voiced by John Cleland (English)
- Ambiguously Brown
- Heroic Sacrifice: In the final battle, he attempted to assist Mega Man Trigger by invading Sera's internal system to try and weaken her; it does work for a while, until she noticed it and goes One-Winged Angel. The poor guy...
- One-Winged Angel: He can transform into a large silver birdlike Reaverbot.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: The yin to Geetz's yang.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair
