Video Game: Mega Girl
Roll's second fan game since Rockmen R: Dr. Wily's Counterattack.

Rock Girl R/Mega Girl R is a fan-made PC game in progress by baragon-kun (aka Gatuca), begun in March 2009 and based on the Mega Man/Rockman series of games. The game stars Roll, and features a unique cast of Female Robot Masters, as well as Waltz and Toque.

This game is similar to Rockman R in premise, except it's fully done in 8-bit graphic style, with the limited color palette of the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Rockman Perfect Memories has a forum dedicated to the game.

For any and all current developments, the source is here.

This game provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: Roll and Waltz both fit, but then again so do all the Female Robot Masters, as it's an all-girl-star game.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The game IS about Roll-chan after all.
  • An Ice Person: Gelato's attacks are ice cream shots and freezing waves.
  • Amusement Park: Gelato Girl's level is most definitely this.
  • Animal Motifs: Swan Woman.
  • Arm Cannon: Roll now has one just like her brother Rock!
  • Ascended Extra: Roll is the main character, after all.
    • Waltz is this, having first appeared in the OCW artbook in an Alternate Universe picture.
  • Asskicking Pose: Can't have a Boss Battle without one.
  • Author Appeal: Judging from Luau Woman's design and the enemy roster in her stage, Gatuca seems to have a fondness for hula girls.
  • Cats Are Mean: Toque, Waltz's Egyptian cat-based support unit.
  • Chainsaw Good: Chainsaw Woman's weapon and moveset basically run on this.
  • Changed My Mind, Kid: Feather Woman was scrapped for a future project and Psy-Woman is her replacement.
  • Clueless Aesop: While the game is intended to have a pro-feminist theme, the abundance of very attractive and statuesque Robot Mistresses sort of mitigates it.
  • Cyber Cyclops: The Roll-Joe-bots and Devils just like in the original series.
  • Expy: Waltz is this to Roll, just as Forte is to Rockman.
  • Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: As usual a weapon beats a Robot Master whose weapons beats the next, etc.
  • Everyone Looks Sexier If French: This applies to Swan Woman, being now based in France.
  • Flash of Pain: All foes are to do this when hit.
  • Gaiden Game
  • Horny Vikings: Opera Woman, of course!
  • Hotter and Sexier: Compared to the other Classic series entries and fan games. However, since the series is almost completely devoid of (sexual) Fanservice, this can be more than a little jarring to longtime fans.
  • Husky Russkie: Psy Woman, hence the fur-covered legs and hat-like helmet. She also has the most masculine appearance among the Female Robot Masters (Chainsaw Woman aside), which would have her be mistaken for a male if she lacked her pink eyelids and eyelashes.
  • Lad-ette: Chainsaw Woman, full stop. She even has a crotch bump, for some reason.
  • Lethal Lava Land: Luau Woman's entire level takes place on a French Polynesian island.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Luau Woman, if one of her likes is any indication.
  • Mishmash Museum: Psy-Woman's stage is a museum in Russia, so far we only know it's a mix of history and <?> psychic powers.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Some of the Female Robot Masters qualify, but Luau Woman is particularly blatant in that regard.
  • Musical Assassin: Opera Woman's stage is based around Vikings, opera and noise attacks.
    • Her attack also gives Roll the power to shoot music notes.
  • Playing with Fire: Luau Woman and all her mooks, hands down.
  • Power Copying: Wouldn't be a Mega Man game without it!
  • Powered Armor: Roll's upgraded body suit, Valentine Armor, most certainly counts!
  • Psychic Powers: Psy Woman's abilities consist of these.
  • Retraux: As with Mega Man 9 and 10, this game is made with 8-bit graphics.
  • Shock and Awe: Static Woman's Electric Touch attack.
  • Shout-Out: Roll's armor and look is VERY similar to how she looks in the Rock Man: Wish Upon A Star animated special.
    • This is also a canon look for Roll, as she was originally intended to have been a player character in Rockman 2: The Mystery of Dr. Wily, complete with her white and pink armor.
    • In Rockman Rockman! aka Mega Man Powered Up! - Copy Roll hints at a few odd things, including her "Special Valentine Armor" of love.
  • Space Jews: Some of the roster, with Luau Woman being the most obvious.
  • Space Level: Lunar Woman's level looks like this and apparently has a gravity gimmick.
  • Spikes of Doom: A few will be featured in levels.
  • The Dragon: Waltz is this to Dr. Witty.
