Mr. Famous voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (JP), Jonathan Holmes (EN)
GateMan voiced by: Hidenobu Kiuchi
Punk voiced by: Eiji Ito
A man with an outgoing personality that offers advice to young Netbattlers and tests them. In all his appearances he is always depicted wearing labcoat and glasses. Operator of GateMan.EXE, Punk.EXE, KendoMan.EXE, and GridMan.EXE (FootMan.EXE) in the games, although he is never seen with more than one at a time.
- Adaptational Villainy: Three of his navis show up in the anime as Zoanoroids.
- Amicable Exes: In the anime, he and his ex-girlfriend Makoto Aoki are on good terms, to the point where Famous even rescues her from Zoanoroid Punk.
- Ascended Extra: 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",note or in the dub, "Famous. Just Famous.".
- Chest Blaster: GateMan has a cannon that pops out from his chest. This attack gets a Battle Chip called GateMan SP, only accessible via Japanese events and the Virtual Console release.
- Confusion Fu: Punk rotates through multiple attack patterns and he moves while attacking in an erractic fashion to throw off the enemy's guard.
- Cool Mask: Wears a mask that covers his mouth while operating GateMan (who is also depicted with one) in the second game.
- Creator Cameo: Mr. Famous is Masakazu "Meijin" Eguchi, a scenario writer for the EXE series (who would also get an avatar in 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.
- Doppleganger Attack: KendoMan's Practice skill.
- Don't Call Me "Sir": As his Catchphrase points out, he doesn't like being called "Mr." (or Meijin-san in the Japanese).
- Hair-Trigger Temper: KendoMan gets fired up quickly that he sends MegaMan to kendo training before he can talk to him.
- Hypocrite: He doesn't like being addressed with honorifics (or "Mr." in the English version) and constantly has to ask or tell Lan not to be so formal. This doesn't stop him from using honorifics himself in the Japanese version.
- I Know Madden Kombat: GridMan is an American football-themed Navi.
- Insistent Terminology: He insists on being called "Meijin" and not "Meijin-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.
- Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Always seen wearing one.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: With another Creator Cameo — the character of Soul Battler Takeshi. Takeshi, who only appears in certain message boards in the last few games (and who is the reason for all the "Soul" naming in the latter half of the series), is the Battle Network incarnation of a much-beloved EXE tournament host whose Hot-Blooded-ness is often juxtaposed with the cool, collected Mr. Famous. More information on Takeshi, here.
Ribitta voiced by: Akiko Nakagawa (JP), Sharon Alexander (EN)
ToadMan voiced by: Akiko Nakagawa (JP), Samuel Vincent (EN)
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.
The two return in the Team Colonel version of 5 to make a report about the Undernet, but this dangerous act costs Colonel's life as he was protecting ToadMan from CloudMan at the time. To make up for it they decided to join Team Colonel to avenge his apparent deletion.
- Advertised Extra: Despite their Demoted to Extra status in Stream, they do at least show up in that season's first ending, possibly as a reference to their role Battle Network 5 (where most of Stream's cast are derived from).
- Animal Motifs: Frogs, of course.
- Badass Adorable: ToadMan.
- Combat Commentator: Her main role. Started with the N1 Grand Prix arc, it got to the point where she provides commentary for almost any friendly matches in the anime.
- Chest Insignia: A green sillhouette of a cartoon frog's head.
- Demoted to Extra: 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 (Mayl and Ms. Yuri took her place instead), 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.
- Early Installment Character-Design Difference: Downplayed with ToadMan. In 2 his mouth appears to be a single yellow line that cannot be opened. 5 changes his mouth design as he has a speaking role there.
- Hollywood Beauty Standards: Regarded as attractive in universe, and she's the host of a show.
- Intrepid Reporter: Not even the Undernet will stop her from getting a scoop there.
- Magic Music: Apparently ToadMan has the ability to dispel evil and heal via music.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: ToadMan usually attacks with electric-infused croaks.
- Making a Splash: ToadMan is an Aqua Navi.
- Meaningful Name: Her Japanese surname Midorikawa means "green river", fitting ToadMan's main color scheme and his element respectively.
- Must Make Amends: Insists on joining Team Colonel after the team leader's Heroic Sacrifice to save ToadMan. Lan rejects her for this reason, so she decided to avenge Colonel herself. This doubles as a Secret Test of Character, 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.
- Nice Hat: Ribitta wears a green beanie with two beads on top of them.
- Punny Name: Both her Japanese and English given names have some form of the onomatopoeia of the noises a frog makes.
- Sequence Breaking: ToadMan's Order Point ability allows another ally Navi to liberate 5 panels in a line with the standard Liberate command. This is also capable of liberating across Barrier Panels. Collecting items hidden behind Barrier Panels, like Keys, can drastically save on the number of phases used.
- Shock and Awe: ToadMan himself is Aqua element, but his battle chip and most of his attacks deal Elec damage.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The anime spells her name as Ribbita.
- Support Party Member: Their role in Team Colonel. Aside from ToadMan's anti-Nebula singing powers, it can also used in Liberation Missions to boost a teammate so that they can liberate more panels.
Ms. Millions voiced by: Rio Natsuki (JP)
SnakeMan voiced by: Ryusei Nakao (JP), Brian Drummond (EN)
- Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Some of her outfit are made of snake skin.
- Chest Insignia: A simple diamond, reflecting her love for jewelry. It could also refer to the diamondback snake.
- Dirty Coward: SnakeMan's battle tactics is a precursor to the infamous BubbleMan from 3. His gimmick consists of attacking with his snakes from the back row while obstructed by holes in front. Oh, and he also hides inside his jar most of the time, only coming out when he is about to attack.
- Green Thumb: SnakeMan is a Wood Navi.
- Irony: Her Beyondard counterpart ends up dirt poor, as she spent all her money trying to break a rock between two villages that separates her and her husband).
- Rich Bitch: Episode 29 has her forcing random people to take part in her endless survival tournament. Once they stop amusing her, she sets off a bomb strapped to their wrists.
- The Tease: Some of her dialogues are very flirtatious.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Takes the lives of challengers once she's fed up with them in the anime.
Raoul voiced by: Nobuo Tobita (JP), Mark Gibbon (EN)
ThunderMan voiced by: Daiki Nakamura (JP), David Kaye (EN)
- A Day in the Limelight: 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.
- Afro Asskicker: He and Chaud wear afros to disguise themselves during their Net Battle against Lan in Axess.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: ThunderMan gets possessed by Reverse in Legend of Network.
- The Cameo: Makes a brief appearance in 3 as an N1 contestant.
- Chest Insignia: A single yellow thunderbolt.
- Electric Black Guy: A black man whose Navi ThunderMan is an Elec Navi.
- Face of a Thug: Especially in the manga. Despite this, he is one of the nicest characters in the series.
- Scary Black Man: Subverted. Raoul may look intimidating, but he's quite nice in spite of his appearance.
- Shock and Awe: ThunderMan is an Elec Navi.
- Temporarily a Villain: Invoked. Raoul, ThunderMan, and Chaud disguise themselves as villains in the anime to teach Lan the dangers of underestimating his opponents.
- Thunder Drum: The electrified circles behind ThunderMan resembles these, as carried by the Japanese thunder god Raijin.
Arashi voiced by: Susumu Chiba (JP), Brian Dobson (EN)
AirMan voiced by: Susumu Chiba (JP), Peter New (EN)
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.
- Adaptational Wimp: In the Classic series, Air Man is That One Boss and even has a song dedicated for his toughness. Here he is the Starter Villain who has no combat gimmicks in contrast to the rest of the BN2 Navis.
- Blow You Away: AirMan's attacks are wind-based.
- Knight of Cerebus: 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...
- Meaningful Name: "Arashi" means "storm", and "Kaze" means "wind".
- Oh, Crap!: His reaction once he notices the bomb noted below.
- Starter Villain: The very first of Gospel you encounter in 2.
- Token Evil Teammate: For the human side of Gospel. None of them can be considered saints, but Arashi's the only one who doesn't have a Freudian Excuse or undergo a HeelFace Turn.
- Unexplained Recovery: Shows up in Battle Chip Challenge (which takes place after the third game) despite being supposedly killed by a briefcase bomb.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: In the anime, AirMan returns to get revenge on MegaMan only to get absorbed by Gospel. Once Gospel is destroyed and the internet restored, all the navis absorbed by Gospel turn back to normal, including AirMan, his fate after this is never shown.
- You Have Failed Me: In the second game he is blown up by a briefcase bomb after losing to Lan and MegaMan. He survives however.
Speedy Dave voiced by: Kosuke Okano (JP), Kirby Morrow (EN)
QuickMan voiced by: Masaru Motegi (JP), Alistair Abell (EN)
- Anti-Villain: 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.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: QuickMan's Early-Bird Cameo in Network Transmission has him taken over by the false vaccine.
- Confusion Fu: Well, it is Quick Man...
- Childhood Friend: To Sal in the anime.
- Early-Bird Cameo: At least in terms of the game's timeline. In Network Transmission, he sends Lan a thank you letter for stopping the vaccinated QuickMan.EXE before he becomes an enemy in MMBN2.
- Eco-Terrorist: His motivations for joining Gospel are born from his love of nature and desire to punish people who don't respect it.
- Flash Step: QuickMan will happily block and 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).
- Fragile Speedster: QuickMan is really fast, but has low hitpoints and limited attacks.
- Informed Ability: As Chaud said, his IQ of 170(!!) didn't do him much good...
- Meaningful Name: His Japanese surname Hayami means "quick sighted."
- You Meddling Kids: Makes a remark after having his schemes foiled by Lan and Chaud."I would've gotten away with it, if it weren't for you scheming kids!"
Voiced by: Chiyako Shibahara (JP), Scott McNeil (EN)
- Boisterous Weakling: For a guy that cleans up the works 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.
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": Has the letter "C" on his torso and his Navi Mark also features it.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Among the original Robot Masters, he is the only one that doesn't debut in the first game.
- Out of Focus: 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 comes in during the last few minutes...before being deleted like it was nothing. It got to the point where his brothers receive more screen time than him.
- Strong Family Resemblance: In the anime, he and his brothers 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.)
- Shear Menace: CutMan has a giant scissor on its head, which he uses to attack.
- Unskilled, but Strong: His navi chip has the same range as a sword, but has massive damage.
Voiced by: Tomoko Kawakami (JP), Jillian Michaels (EN)
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.
- Adaptational Heroism: In the anime, she was heroic to begin with.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: 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.
- Everything's Better with Princesses: Unless they are crazy jealous of other succeeding nations.
- Exhausted Eye Bags: Has them in her BN2 design, likely as a result of the stress of being both the princess of an entire kingdom and a high-ranking member of Gospel.
- Foil: To Tesla. Both are wealthy women whose Navis used to be in Gospel (Pride herself included) and acted as the defense of the anti-Nebula team they joined. However, while Tesla is a Rich Bitch most of the time, Pride is nice after she reformed.
- HeelFace Turn: In BN5. A change so extreme that it basically flips her whole personality from BN2 out of nowhere.
- Out of Focus: 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.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Joins Team Colonel to fight Nebula.
- Same Character, but Different: 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.
- Vague Age: 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 teenage boy 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.
Voiced by: Jin Horikawa (JP), Russell Roberts (EN)
Loyal retainer of Princess Pride, and saddled with a rather admirable case of My Master, Right or Wrong.
- Anti-Villain: Shows issues with working with Gospel, but he does so out of loyalty towards his operator.
- Armor-Piercing Attack: His battle chip in the second game can do this, even to himself.
- The Brute: Shares this position with MagnetMan in Gospel until he becomes The Big Guy of Team Colonel alongside TomahawkMan. He specializes in defense.
- Epic Flail: You know an attack's awesome when it's called Royal Wrecking Ball.
- Foil: To MagnetMan. Both Navis used to work for Gospel, joined an anti-Nebula team as the team's defense and are loyal to their operators no matter what. MagnetMan's barrier costs Order Points and has unlimited range while KnightMan's shielding doesn't cost any Order Points but has a limited range and can only guard one teammate at a time. While MagnetMan has to force himself to team up with MegaMan, KnightMan does so willingly.
- Gentle Giant: When not in combat, he's obviously a Nice Guy despite his imposing stature.
- HeelFace Turn: He worked with Gospel in MMBN2, but only because his Princess did. In the fifth game, he joins Team Colonel alongside the Princess.
- Mighty Glacier: He's painfully slow, but he's extremely strong and nigh invincible until he attacks.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: 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.
- Stone Wall: His StoneBody condition makes all damage inflicted to him reduced to 1 (0 in BN5) unless they're breaking attacks. 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 are scarce in the first three games, so his defensive qualities held merit. KnightMan is recruited into Team Colonel for this very reason.
Voiced by: Hideyuki Umezu (JP), Ron Halder (EN)
Leader of his own company Gauss Inc. 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.
- Adaptation Name Change: Zigzagged in the anime. According to his brother, Gauss' last name used to be Zap, but it was changed to Magnus when their mother died and Count Zap left to join the WWW.
- Always Someone Better: To Count Zap in the anime which is why he joined the WWW. Kind of subverted when ElecMan and Count Zap help MegaMan delete MagnetMan.
- The Dragon: Implied to be one for Gospel, for the human side of the organization at least.
- Fanboy: To Dr. Wily in the anime, as he keeps a lot of Wily-themed merchandise in his mansion.
- Freudian Excuse: Growing up poor and having to work himself up to his current position when his brother got taken in by a rich family has made him a rather bitter man.
- Karma Houdini: Double subversion: In Stream, he gets sentenced to prison for 931 years, but Tesla leads the Neo WWW to break him and MagnetMan out.
- Overprotective Dad: Of his daughter Tesla, in the anime, albeit played for laughs.
- Rags to Riches: He worked himself out of poverty, and shows some bitterness about it.
- Shipper on Deck: He shows some approval to Tesla and Charlie being an item.
- Split Personality: Implied in the anime. One time he talks normally, other times he acts like a noblewoman.
- The Unfavorite: Mentions his brother Jack (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 where his brother is apparently the unfavorite, resulting him joining the WWW.
- Unusual Eyebrows: According to Official Complete Works, they're supposed to be based on iron fillings when attracted by magnets.
- Would Hurt a Child: Episode 42 has him trying to drown Lan and the Net Agents in a small room filled with water. Madd (his secretary at the time) objects to this, as harming children directly is one line the WWW wouldn't cross.
- Villainous Crossdresser: He does this in the anime.
- Villain with Good Publicity: In the second game, people only saw him as the president of his own company until he revealed himself as the airplane's hijacker. In the anime, he built facilities and donates money to charities and tells everyone else to do the same.
Voiced by: Tomoyuki Kono (JP), Michael Dobson (EN)
Gauss (and later his daughter Tesla's) Navi. Harbors a grudge towards Lan and MegaMan for sending Gauss to prison.
- Barrier Warrior: His specialty in the fifth Battle Network game.
- Battle Butler: Acts this way to both Gauss and Tesla.
- The Brute: Shares this position with KnightMan in Gospel until he becomes The Big Guy of Team Protoman alongside NapalmMan.
- Cool Mask: One of the few Navis with retractable masks, something that is usually reserved for MegaMan and ProtoMan.
- Doppleganger Attack: His Signature Move, the North South(NS) Tackle.
- Foil: To KnightMan. Both Navis used to work for Gospel, joined an anti-Nebula team as the team's defense and are loyal to their operators no matter what. KnightMan's shielding doesn't cost any Order Points but has a limited range and can only guard one teammate at a time while MagnetMan's barrier costs Order Points and has unlimited range. While KnightMan is willing to team up with MegaMan, MagnetMan has to force himself to do so.
- HeelFace Turn: A reluctant one in the fifth game, though he remains loyal because Tesla explicitly orders him to be, hence he joins Team ProtoMan alongside her.
- Immune to Flinching: One of his properties.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Will do what Gauss or Tesla order, good or ill, without complaint, even if it means Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with MegaMan as a member of Team ProtoMan.
- Never My Fault: Battle Network 5 shows he holds something of a grudge against MegaMan for their conflict in Battle Network 2 not caring he and Gauss were hijacking a plane and stealing a program from the plane's computer.
- Power Floats: He is hovering around in battles, likely due to his magnetic powers.
- Shock and Awe: Electric elemental due to his magnetism theme.
Voiced by: Soichiro Tanaka (JP), Mark Oliver (EN)
Gospel's top commander Navi. He is responsible for locking up all of the environment control systems around the world using his ice crystals, which results in natural disasters around the world. The anime has him trying to freeze the real world with high-powered portable air-conditioning penguins.
- Adaptational Badass: 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, taking down MegaMan and deleted FireMan easily.
- An Ice Person: He is an Aqua Navi that looks like a sentient icicle. Unlike ToadMan whose attacks are electricity-based, he actually inflicts Aqua damage.
- Defrosting Ice King: His Zoanoroid counterpart in the Beast season is every bit as cold hearted as his original version, but warms up to IceMan and protects him from Zoanoroid StoneMan.
- Human Popsicle: He can encase himself in ice to shield from damage.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Can summon icicle towers that moves towards the target.
- Stationary Boss: Freezeman doesn't move from his position during the fight against him in Battle Network 2.
- Taking You with Me: 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.
Gospel Leader/Kid Grave (Lord Gospel)
Voiced by: Noriko Hidaka (JP), Cathy Weseluck (EN)
His true idenity is Sean Obihiro (Shun Obihiro), who started as an ordinary boy orphaned by a plane crash that kills both of his parents. He was later handed to his other relatives, but they treated him badly and misused his parents' fortune. This combined with his Friendless Background has caused him to resent society, even to the point of trusting computers more than other people. He dons the disguise to recruit people from the Internet to work for him.
He makes another appearance in 3, now reformed, visiting the hospitalized Yuichiro Hikari to inform him about his story and who was actually manipulating Gospel from behind.
- Abusive Parents: Or rather, foster parents.
- Adapted Out: Sean never appears in the anime as his Gospel Leader/Kid Grave disguise is a robot.
- Black Eyes of Evil: Of course, like the rest of that appearance, it's just a hologram.
- Big Bad: Of the second game.
- Chekhov's Gunman: 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.
- The Atoner: In 3.
- Bratty Half-Pint: His manga characterization. It really grinds on Chaud's nerves.
- Break the Cutie: His backstory leads him to become the second game's Big Bad.
- Friendless Background: Until Lan handed him the hand of friendship, his only friends are his computers.
- Grand Theft Me: After being deactivated by Wily in the anime, his robot body gets taken over by Bass.EXE.
- HeelFace Turn: He joins forces to help Chaud and Raika defeat the Darkloids in the manga. He also seems to have repented in MMBN3 and actually serves as an example for Lan on how one should make up for their mistakes instead of dwelling in them (referring to the disastrous FlameMan scenario).
- An Ice Person: Operates FreezeMan in Battle Chip Challenge.
- Improbable Age: Leader of a dangerous criminal organization at ten years old. Justified since it was revealed in 3 that Wily does most of the heavy work from behind the scenes.
- Inconsistent Dub: The ending of 3 has Lan refer to him as Shun, despite calling him Sean when he visits his hospitalized father after the FlameMan scenario.
- Meaningful Name: "Obihiro" means "wide belt" in Japan, and is a play on the term "broadband".
- No Mouth: Although it turns out to be part of a holographic disguise. Justified for his anime incarnation as he is a robot.
- No One Could Survive That!: Exposes himself to high doses of radiation caused by his supercomputers. Even more dangerous in his case as he stays there for how long already.
- Perpetual Frowner: He's never seen smiling in his mugshot.
- Walking Spoiler: Due to his disguise and his repentance in the third game, very little can be discussed about him without spoiling plot details.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Seriously, when a kid says "My computers are more honest than people", you know he's broken.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair Has glowing green hair. It is silver in his default appearance.
- Adaptational Badass: Much like its partner, Gospel got a striking power boost in the Battle Network series. Gospel's is even more visible going from a mere Canine Companion to a gigantic Final Boss.
- Animalistic Abomination: It's an intelligent pile of BugFrags with malicious intent, godlike power within the Cyberworld, and if left unchecked could overrun the Internet with bugs. Being Gospel, it also happens to resemble a giant wolf.
- Breath Weapon: Of all four elements, even. Don't ask how WoodBreath works.
- Canine Companion: Although it's less of a pet and more of a mutually beneficial partner.
- Canis Major: It's pretty dang huge.
- Clone Degeneration: Sort of. Gospel is a failed copy of Bass that couldn't hold its shape.
- Dub Name Change:
- A fairly notable aversion in the games. Its Classic series counterpart was named Treble in America. However, in the Battle Network timeline, it's named after the organization that created it, which very obviously has a G in its emblem. Rather than modifying the graphics, they left its Japanese name in place.
- Played straight in the anime where it is renamed "Grave" instead.
- Final Boss: Of the second game.
- Fusion Dance: Merges with Bass at the end of the third game, forming BassGS.
- Intelligible Unintelligible: Can we understand it? No. Can Bass understand it? Yes. All the worse for us.
- Savage Wolves: A vicious and destructive wolf-like creature.
- The Worm That Walks: Gospel is a lupine conglomeration of Bug Fragments.
Voiced by: Kentaro Ito, Koichi Sakaguchi (Stream) (JP), Brian Drummond (EN)
In the anime, he is a powerful Navi from Darkland who hypnotizes KnightMan to take control of Creamland. Another version of him (Asteroid NapalmMan) appears in the Stream season, where he is given by Slur to a criminal but circumstances cause him to end up in Fyrefox's hands just like in the games.
- Arm Cannon: Both of NapalmMan's arms are this.
- The Big Guy: Shares this position with MagnetMan in Team ProtoMan. He specializes in offense.
- Bonus Boss: NapalmMan in the second game. He is one of WWW Area's guardians.
- Chest Insignia: A heavily stylized nuclear explosion, if the rings around it is of any indication.
- Dub Name Change: To MoltanicMan in the English dub of the anime.
- HeelFace Turn: NapalmMan took one between 2 and 5; Fyrefox may not exactly be a saint, but he's a heck of a lot better than the WWW.
- Last of His Kind: Asteroid NapalmMan is the only Asteroid Navi left at the end, as he became Fyrefox's Navi instead of being deleted.
- More Dakka: Goes hand-to-hand with his access to military-grade weapons. NapalmMan doesn't have a charge shot, instead he can rapid fire his Arm Cannons with each shot dealing 5 damage instead of the usual 1.
- Playing with Fire: A Fire Navi.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: 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.

- All Your Powers Combined: He's mainly Wood-type, but he can utilize attacks with Fire, Aqua and Elec elements as well.
- Attack Drone: He's surrounded by 2 "satellites" that follow Color-Coded Elements and will launch an elemental attack when MegaMan is on the same row.
- Damage-Sponge Boss: His health is higher than even Bass (in this game) or Gospel, at 2200.
- Gravity Master
- Green Thumb: His main element. Like WoodMan, he can also summon Wood Towers.
