     Characters Introduced in the First Game and Anime 

Hope Stelar (Akane Hoshikawa)
Voiced by: Akiko Kimura (JP), Michelle Ruff (EN)

"Please, just come back home safely."

Geo's mother. Unlike her son, she has more-or-less moved on after her husband's disappearance, altough she still hopes for him to come back.

She plays a minor supporting role in the first two games, but in the third, not only does she discover her son's secret, we learn she has some secrets of her own. In the anime, her characterization is fleshed out a bit more, and we are introduced to some of her quirks.

  • Betty and Veronica: To Veil, Luna's mother, who's the Veronica. The two never meet face-to-face, but Geo scores a recipe off of his mother so Veil can cook something for her family.
  • Brick Joke: In the first season of the anime, Mega Man spends a day as a delivery boy to make up for a post office mess-up caused by his fight with a virus, which involves him visiting his own home and delivering a mail-order pan to his mother. Come the end of the second season, where Harp Note has no idea why Hope Stelar is addressing her as "Ms. Delivery Girl".
  • Broken Masquerade: To his credit, Geo did manage to get through almost three whole games. It wasn't until Heartless dropped by to confirm it that she properly understood, though.
  • Cool Big Sis: She and Luna have a solid rapport with each other in the anime, starting when she teaches Luna how to cook. She also has a strong sense of mischief and isn't above letting life be difficult for her son. She stops short of outright antics, however; she prefers to simply let them happen on their own.
  • Distressed Damsel: Phantom Black kidnaps her and makes good on his deal with the cameramen.
  • Education Mama: Not much of one, though she certainly approves of Geo's return to school. One thing to consider is how, for Geo, going back to school is more of a reflection of his emotional state.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: There's some concept art of Kelvin's wake and funeral in which her hair has been cut extremely short (though she still has her bangs).
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Hope has a couple of cooking moments in the anime, primarily receiving her mail-order saucepan and teaching Luna how to cook.
  • The Gadfly: Downplayed. Once or twice in the anime, she'd managed to get under Geo's skin for some reason or another, and obviously enjoyed herself.
  • Genki Girl: She has some elements of this, though it manifests in her quirkiness rather than her general demeanor.
  • Hostage for MacGuffin: Which leads to her most infamous fanservice moment.
  • Housewife: Though she's rather playful compared to other instances. In the games she has a mostly ignored part-time job.
  • Innocent Innuendo: During the moment illustrated in Shipper on Deck, Hope muses about Geo still being a little boy for all his supposed maturity, but makes this face during the statement, which is not helped in coming directly after this. The fandom does not seem to want to let this go, naturally.
  • I Will Wait for You: No points for guessing who this is aimed at.
  • Keep the Home Fires Burning: Like Geo, she waits for her husband Kelvin to come home. In the third game, he does.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: To keep her safe, Geo tries doing this. Subverted in the end, when Heartless drops by to explain things to her, and then she reveals she not only knows Heartless from the past, she knows "Heartless" is an alias.
  • Male Gaze: Near the end of the Tribe anime, Phantom Black kidnaps Hope, tossing her over his shoulder and ditching. The following chase scene, while ostensibly simply just a full frontal shot of Phantom Black running from Mega Man and Harp Note, allows him the remarkable opportunity to aim Hope's butt square at the camera.
  • Meaningful Name: This is more of a poetic application than otherwise, but take a gander at Heroic Resolve in the first game's section on the main page.
  • Ms. Fanservice: The infamous Male Gaze moment in the Tribe anime.
  • My Girl Back Home: Would be her.
  • The Nicknamer: In the anime. To her, Mega Man will always be the delivery boy.
  • Open-Minded Parent: Hope is much less concerned with her son's mysterious nightlife in the anime than one might expect.
  • Parents as People:
    • While she has small flashes of insight into Geo's secret life, she still comes across as a smidgeon selfish when she tries to insist Geo stay out of harm's way. She lets this go in the third game after a final flash of insight.
    • Most of the time in the anime, she's a pretty cool mom.
  • Shipper on Deck: In the anime, Hope will tease Geo about the girls in his life. At one point in the first season, Hope asks Geo if he likes Sonia Skye. He denies this quite strongly. Then, from a flash of inspiration, she asks if he likes Luna Platz, which steams him up enough to make him leave, suffering both teasing from Hope and Omega-Xis.
  • Stacy's Mom:
    • A local NPC named Axe Tagrind thinks she's gorgeous. He's startled to realize he's gossiping about a beautiful woman to her son, which echoes a moment in the first Battle Network game.
    • In the Tribe anime, Hyde clearly thinks that lavishing compliments on Hope will convince her to model for him. It's hard to tell how honest he is, however, due to ulterior motives on the one hand and the fact that Hyde's a Nightmare Fetishist and Terrible Artist on the other.
  • Tears of Joy: In the third game, she's brought to her knees by hearing Kelvin's voice.
  • Tender Tears: Mixed with Tears of Joy. In the anime, Geo is hospitalized mid-season. While she's not shown to be crying, you can hear her voice quavering and you can see her holding a handkerchief.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Wears her hair in a ponytail and has quite the mischievous streak.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Oh, yes. Bursting out laughing when your son suffers the efforts of your student is not the best way to earn Mommy Points, no.

Aaron Boreal (Mamoru Amachi)
Voiced by: Hiroshi Tsuchida (JP)
Transer: Dragon (Anime)
"I still haven't lost hope that I'll find Kelvin someday"

An associate and former underclassman of Kelvin's, Aaron may be the one man left on earth still trying to find his old friend. The head of the space research institute, "AMAKEN", Aaron proves to be one of Geo's greater allies during his adventures, even going so far as to get things started by presenting Geo with the Visualizer, which he found among Kelvin's old things. Cheerful and outgoing, he tries hard to make friends with people, going out of his way to make friends with one of his workers, the reclusive Tom Dubius.

After the first game, Aaron becomes a specialist in Wave Technology, often working with Geo and WAXA as trouble arises.

  • Anime Hair: It flows out into spikes at the sides. Not as flamboyant as Geo or Solo's, though.
  • Brainy Brunette: Has brown hair and is quite a genius.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Not him, but his company, AMAKEN. It ceases to be relevant to his character past the first game, though he still wears his uniform jacket in later games, probably because a new sprite would require work.
  • The Engineer: In the anime, he provides Geo with a substitute Wave Scanner while he plans on fixing his broken Transer, when Shinsuke jumps in and seizes the opportunity to create what we will come to know as the Star Carrier. AMAKEN also develops Wave Rifles for the Satella Police.
  • Fat and Skinny: A sign that Tom has grown better with people is that he's willing to tease Aaron about his eating habits.
  • Foil: To Tom Dubius. He is friendly and outgoing while Tom is paranoid and distrustful.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: In the anime and the first game, he and Tom become good buddies. Tom is nowhere to be found in the second game, however, and when he does return in Ace and Joker, they're rarely seen speaking to or about one another.
  • Home Base: AMAKEN in the anime. Fares better overall than the SciLabs.
  • Mission Control: Provides support to Mega Man and Harp Note during the second half of the first season, especially during the final arc. Mamoru will often show up (usually with Goyouda) in the midst of the action while Tom oversees from the main lab.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Geo.
  • Lost in Translation: AMAKEN is actually short for Amachi Kenkyujou in the original japanese. Basically put, Aaron runs a rocket design and space research center he named after himself.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Mamoru means "defender", while Amachi means "Heaven and Earth." One meaning of Aaron is "high mountain", and Boreal refers to the Aurora Borealis.
    • Aaron Boreal is named after Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights.
  • Mentor Archetype: While not quite a surrogate father to Geo, Aaron nonetheless provides welcome support. Besides Hope, he's the second voice encouraging Geo's return to school.
  • Mr. Exposition: When Omega-Xis just won't do, Aaron will gladly explain things in the former's stead.
  • Mr. Fixit: He tries restoring Strong and Luna, but it's not quite as easy as Geo hopes it is.
  • Never Bareheaded: Aaron's always running around with a baseball cap planted on his head. In the anime, he takes it off once for all of five seconds to scratch the back of his head, after which it gets planted back on.
  • Odd Couple: With Tom. Aaron the cheerful, perhaps rather stocky extrovert, and Tom, the reclusive, slinking introvert, is one duo that is the most unexpected.
  • Oh, Crap!: When his reunion with Utagai in the anime turns sour.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: Technically, Aaron is an actual rocket scientist, though he ends up being used as the go-to guy for the Fantastic Science of the Wave World and its inhabitants. His relationship with WAXA is... unclear.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: A kind and responsible man. He is also the head of AMAKEN, the company responsible for a lot of research and development.
  • Secret Keeper: He becomes aware of Geo's secret identity in the anime, and he conceals it accordingly.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: He slips toward the Manly Man edge while Tom is the Sensitive Guy. He is very outgoing and more than up to fighting to do what's right.

Tom Dubius (Shinsuke Utagai)

Transer: Dragon (Anime)
Wizard: Cygnus
EM Human: Cygnus Wing
Trans-Code: 020
"Maybe you came to steal my reseach. How suspicious."

When we meet Tom, he is currently employed as one of the scientists who work at AMAKEN, and a personal associate of Aaron's. One of the first things to notice is the paranoid stare he aims at everyone. As it turns out, Tom is consumed by the idea that people are out to steal his ideas and livelihood from him (and with good reason), which, unfortunately, makes him prime bait for the FM-ian Cygnus.

In the anime, Cygnus ends up kidnapping him and it's not until much later that he returns. Following his return, Shinsuke basically becomes Mamoru's lieutenant at AMAKEN, being the only other employee in on the secret of Rock Man's true identity. He's still panicky, but much more trusting and reliable. In the third game, Tom has returned to working for NAXA, along with his new Wizard, a reformed Cygnus.

  • Adorkable: Most of the time, due to him being not good with people.
  • Badass Longcoat: He briefly styles a trenchcoat in the anime while he is possessed by Cygnus. He remains dangerous, now being able to use his EM powers without Wave Changing.
  • Bonus Boss: In the third game, where Cygnus has been reconstituted as a Wizard and Tom has learned to Wave Change at will.
  • Brainy Brunette: Has brown hair and created the Star Carrier.
  • Break Them by Talking: He rips Geo's and Omega-Xis' rapport to shreds in the anime, with the added bonus of cancelling their EM Wave Change and sending Geo plummeting to the ground.
  • Bungling Inventor: Comes up with interesting ideas for inventions, but has trouble with the execution. His two most successful inventions to date include the Wing Jacket and the Star Carrier.
  • Character Development: Eventually decides to have faith in people.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Tom disappears during the second game. He's back in 3, though.
  • Conspicuous Trenchcoat: The muted colors contrasting with bright palette of the world he lives in certainly helps him stand out.
  • Cool Hat: His fedora in the anime, which appears with the trenchcoat.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Initially.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: While already unpopular with people, he was betrayed by his ex-boss and only friend, who stole his invention. After that he couldn't trust anyone anymore.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His former supervisor at NAXA stole the idea and rights to an invention Tom was developing, which kicked him down the emotional hill to where he was found at the beginning of the game.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: In the beginning.
  • Fat and Skinny: With Aaron, though Aaron's not really fat. A sign that Tom has grown better with people is that he's willing to tease Aaron about his eating habits.
  • Freudian Excuse: His former boss pretended to befriend him only to steal his invention and pass it off as his own, causing Tom to lose faith in people.
  • Friendless Background: Ahem. He had *one* friend.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: In the anime. Stuff... happened.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Created the Flap Pack and the Star Carrier in the anime.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Aaron.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Geo, after... stuff.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Cygnus in the third game.
  • Jet Pack: A variant. When first introduced, Tom is in the middle of developing a kind of jetpack that has wings meant to simulate actual flight. In a later sidequest in the first game, Geo has PropellerMan offer some advice: attach helicopter blades.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Initially.
  • More Than Mind Control: Under Cygnus' influence.
  • Meaningful Name: Mr. Dubius doesn't trust others? Huh. Also, more scholastically, Thomas was the name of one of Jesus' disciples who was famous for doubting He'd returned from death. (The name "Doubting Thomas" had some use as an appelation in the English-speaking world; the name "Thomas" itself means "Twin"). On the Japanese side of things, utagai means "doubt".
  • Mission Control: In the later anime, whenever Aaron's out in the field.
  • Mundane Utility: In the anime, Shinsuke originally develops the Star Carrier's Hard Light functionality because he wants the next-generation terminal to be useful in case it's user is caught out in a storm and needs an umbrella.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: He has a brief moment of this with Aaron midway through the first anime. It's played entirely for creeps.
  • Not Quite Flight: With the Wing Jacket.
  • Number Two: At AMAKEN in the anime.
  • Odd Couple: Aaron the cheerful extrovert and Tom the reclusive, slinking introvert.
  • Perpetual Frowner: In the beginning.
  • Put on a Bus: After the first game and his introductory arc in the anime.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: After... stuff.
  • Sanity Slippage: With more time spent with Cygnus in the anime, this was inevitable. He gets better.
  • Science Hero: Post Character Development.
  • Secret Keeper: Geo's in the anime, again, after... stuff.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Sensitive Guy to Aaron's Manly Man.
  • Shadow Archetype: To Geo himself. Shinsuke refuses to make friends with other people at all, regarding them with mistrust and suspicion.
  • Those Two Guys: With Aaron in the first game and the anime.

Bob Copper (Goyouda Heiji)
Transer: Satella Police
"You're all under arrest!"

An detective working for the Satellite Police, Bob Copper is busy looking into the reason behind the sudden massive influx of the bizarre Z-Waves, and going above and beyond the call of duty to do so, much to just about everyone's chagrin. Don't underestimate him, though, as he has the resources and the abilities to track Mega Man down and proves a threat in his own right.

In the games, he busies himself doing whatever Satellite assigns him to do. In the first game, his study of the Z-Waves leads him to start hunting down individuals associated with them, including Mega Man. In the second game, Satellite upgrades him to an international agent, taking care of Z-Wave incidents in foreign countries. In the third, he briefly cameos during the later chapters, but does little more than comment on the situation (he provided Geo with a Satellite Server Card in the original Japanese). In the anime, he leads a squad of Satella Police in charge of collecting and destroying EM viruses; he quickly finds himself hunting the mysterious Mega Man who keeps appearing amidst bizarre em waves, usually in combat.

  • Badass Longcoat: Wears one like any good detective.
  • Badass Normal: Has no powers, but is more than willing to stand up to dangerous EM beings.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Big bushy ones.
  • Broken Masquerade: Copper comes very, very close to connecting Geo to the weird activities going on in town in the first game (not least because Geo's house is radioactive). In the anime, he keeps finding Geo in places where he tracked Mega Man's bizarre energy signature, but he writes the boy off as an overzealous fan.
  • Butt-Monkey: Takes a baseball to the head in the games. Gets fried by fireworks in the anime. As a matter of fact, poor Bob gets knocked out at least three times in the first game, not to mention Mega deleting all his data on Z-waves. Poor man can't catch a break.
  • The Cameo: In the third game.
  • Catchphrase: In the anime, he tends to make loud pronouncements of "You're all under arrest!" - in English. In Japanese, he rants "Goyou da! Goyou da! Goyou da!"note 
  • The Commissioner Gordon: He drops his chase of Rock Man during the Final arc of the first anime and starts working with AMAKEN; this partnership continues throughout the Tribe anime.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He's loaded to the gills with stuff designed to work with Z-Waves, the waves the FM-ians give off, which have been around for all of maybe two weeks - he outright frightens Omega-Xis when he pulls out his self-created Rejecter, which is tech that humans shouldn't have yet.
  • Demoted to Extra: He transitions farther and farther into the background as the series progresses.
  • The Determinator: "This light has called us to defeat this evil!" proclaimed in the face of the Planet Eater Andromeda.
  • Drives Like Crazy: In the anime Copper has some truly insane driving skills, being able balance his car at a forty-five degree angle on a railguard and still be able to drive forward. Omega-Xis was most impressed.
  • Drop the Hammer: Has this huge one in the anime that only appears once and never gets used effectively. Is it a Buki Card?
  • Hardboiled Detective: He's incredibly hardboiled, he's just getting nowhere.
  • Hot-Blooded: Is not easily intimidated.
  • Scarily Competent Tracker: Lose the scent? Ha!
  • Incoming Ham: "Goyou da, Goyou da, Goyou da!"
  • Iconic Item: His Satella Police headset, and more specifically the patrol light rising from his skull. He appears to be the only member of the Satella Police to use it.
  • Interpol Special Agent: In the second game.
  • Kicked Upstairs: We see less of him in the second game, after he gets promoted to international status.
  • Large Ham: Loads of this in the anime, what with his bombastic entrances.
  • Meaningful Name: See Catchphrase.
  • Occult Detective: Well, extraterrestrial detective, maybe.
  • Odd Couple: Goyouda strikes up a friendship with Mamoru in the anime, partially because AMAKEN can provide his department with more impressive tech.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Copper is actually quite competent, he's just utterly out of his league. Even in the anime, which gives him more screen time, MegaMan evades his clutches only through the virtue of his superhuman abilities. Again, Geo and Mega probably aren't helping things with their unquestioning distrust of the badge.
  • Police are Useless: Not for lack of trying, mind you.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Copper generally remains one throughout the series; he would be more of one if Geo and Mega didn't keep making him suspicious.
  • Secret Chaser: Geo and Mega work hard to keep ahead of Copper. They manage to turn him into a Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist when they try to slow his investigation, an effort which involves knocking him out with a baseball to the forehead, and cracking his computer to delete his entire report. Mega, who dragged Geo into it, apparently never hit on the idea that explaining the situation to a potential ally was an all around better option than behaving like a criminal and ratcheting up the policeman's suspicion.
  • Spanner in the Works: Is an instrumental distraction in the Tribe anime finale, without which the bad guys would've won.
  • Take a Third Option: During Cygnus' Return, Libra offers the Satella Police the choice of being either A) Annihilated or B) Destroyed.
    Goyouda: C! We fight back!
  • Touched by Vorlons: At one point in the anime, Taurus attempts to make a host out of him. However, while Goyouda did manage to hulk out a bit, the two proved incompatible and Taurus left. Goyouda was left standing underneath the cruiser he'd lifted up.
  • Tsundere: Briefly during Cygnus' return in the anime; non-romantic Type A. He's greatly relieved when Rock Man returns, but catches himself and demands to know where the bastard's been hiding.
    Satellite Policeman: Did you say something, Inspector?
    Goyouda: S-Shut up!
  • Verbal Tic: He sticks an unnecessary "Yeah?" into his sentences a few times, but only in the early first game.
  • The Zenigata: He ends up being this given Geo's and Mega's actions.

Ken Suther (Ken Nangoku)

Wizard: Hang Ten
"No problem, dude."

The owner of the shop Big Wave. Despite appearing in all three games, he plays a very minor role. In the third game, he gains a partner Wizard named Hang Ten, who absorbs the Cipher Mail functions of the first two games.

Claude Pincer (Chiyokichi Hazami)

Transer: Dragon (Anime)
EM Human: Cancer Bubble
"I- I have Brothers, though! I do!"

A young boy who hangs out in Ken Suther's shop, Big Wave. He's willing partners with the FM-ian Cancer, and together they form the EM Human Cancer Bubble. He loves to fight and constantly challenges Geo and Mega to battle. He appears in both the first and second games, but not in the third.

In the anime, he briefly appears in episode eighteen as the designated partner for Cancer, who spends the episode hopped up on Claude's adoration for Idol Singer Sonia. After that, Claude disappears from the plot, though Cancer's EM Human form remains heavily influenced by him.

  • Back for the Finale: He shows up in the crowd at Misora's final concert in the anime.
  • Blood Knight: Claude's a brawler in the making.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: A rude little loudmouth.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Completely absent in Black and Red without so much as a nod.
  • Delinquent: Never explicit, but certainly hinted at.
  • Fan Boy: In the anime, he is constantly trying to sneak into Sonia's concerts... and constantly getting caught. Sonia eventually takes pity on him and gives him a front row seat.
  • Fiery Redhead: Has red hair.
  • Hot-Blooded: Loves a good fight and is quite energetic.
  • Loners Are Freaks: In the games, Claude's abrasive personality and his habit of picking fights has managed to ensure the poor boy has no friends at all. By the second game he does manage, to his credit, to gain one 30-point Brother Band. Probably with Ken Suther, given he hangs out at Big Wave all the time.
  • Nice Hat: Always seen wearing one.
  • Odd Friendship: Possibly with Ken Suther.
  • One-Shot Character: In the anime; notably he only features in a single episode, not even a whole arc. (But what an episode)!
  • Touched by Vorlons: He's partnered with the FM-ian Cancer in the games.
  • Wrath: His main problem is his lack of self-control.

Chrys Golds (Kintarou Kaneda)

Transer: Dragon (Anime)
"There's nothing money can't buy!"

Introduced alongside Sonia in the first game, Mr. Golds is Sonia's exploitative manager who will use her talent and fame to generate as much money as he can. His treatment of her is so bad (especially after the death of her mother) that Sonia abandons him at the first opportunity, sneaking away just before her concert in Echo Ridge, prompting Chrys to go barging into every house in the neighborhood searching for her. When he finally does catch up with her, his attempt to drag her into her concert causes her to flee into the arms of Lyra.

In the anime, while not necessarily sympathetic, he's much less a hateful jerk; we watch him tying to keep his higher ups off of his back while Sonia wanders around the world with Lyra's help.

  • Abusive Parents: As far as any of the audience is aware, Sonia's manager stands in as her guardian.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Downplayed. A more correct term is Adaptational Kindness. As stated above, the anime greatly tones down his negative traits. He's not entirely sympathetic, but he's far less hateful.
  • Apologizes a Lot: In the anime; it keeps the higher-ups off his back when Misora goes AWOL.
  • Butt-Monkey: He suffers at Sonia's hands plenty in the anime — at one point he tries to get Sonia to wear one of two ridiculous concert constumes (both of which are comically small), and she responds by turning them into binds and a gag for him.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Irelevant after the first game.
  • Fat Bastard: Has quite a large gut, and the "Bastard" part is obvious.
  • Funny Background Event: Inverted; in the anime, Chrys is a funny foreground event. He totally misses out on Rock Man's and Gemini Spark Black's battle in his office, as he's busy apologizing for not having located Sonia. He fails to notice even when Black nearly cleaves his head in two.
  • Greed: His defining characteristic, as the quote above will tell you.
  • Karma Houdini: The man's sidequest involves finding him yet another cash cow.
  • Jerkass: Really, this is the nicest thing you can call him.
  • Hate Sink: He's more or less pure unlikeability in the games.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: The man abuses a musician as his cash cow... then his cash cow becomes a Musical Assassin.
  • Meaningful Name: His last name is golds, reflecting his greed.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: While not plucky, this is pretty much his role in the anime.
  • The Svengali: He had remarkably little regard for Sonia as a person. She ditches him in the game, but sticks around with him in the anime, where he's not as odious.
  • Would Hurt a Child: When dragging Sonia to the concert, he hits Geo in a fit of rage. Aaron rightfully calls him out on it.

Mitch Shepar (Michimori Ikuta)
Transer: Leo (Anime)
EM Human: Libra Scales
"I want to teach the kids things they can't get from books."

The main characters' homeroom teacher. A teacher well liked among his students for his alternative ways of teaching that produces great results among the students. Unfortunately, he's very unpopular among the other teachers, who resent that he doesn't use the Study Wave like they do. The Principal of Echo Ridge Elementary tries to force the issue, which results in a nasty outcome for everybody.

In the anime, he doesn't teach at the Elementary, but runs a public science class that is very popular. He also appears in the third game, although without Libra.

  • Badass Beard: Just look at that thing.
  • Cool Teacher: He's the most popular with the students, and the least popular with the faculty.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • In the anime, where, for some bizarre reason, he's not teaching Geo's class. Instead he's teaching a science class at Echo Ridge University. And he's merely a One-Shot Character at that.
    • He's this in the later games as well, where he has remarkably little influence on the plot; compare Damian Wolfe, who was originally just an optional boss but became upgraded to a (briefly) plot-relevant ally in the third game.
  • Easy Amnesia: He's never shown to pick back up on the existence of the FM-ians in later games.
  • '80s Hair: Just look at it!
  • Envy: He's a victim of this from the other teachers, many of whom merely operate Study Wave rather than actually teach like he does.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His first appearance in the game comes complete with an admonishment to Luna to get off of Geo's back.
  • Eyes Always Shut: His eyes are always closed.
  • Famed In-Story: He reads Geo's name on the class roster every day only to remain unanswered, which really helped Geo's infamy spread.
  • Friendless Background: Implied, given how the other teachers dislike him. He has a huge family (seven adopted children), mind you, so he's probably not that lonely.
  • From Bad to Worse: Libra shows up while Mr. Shepar is struggling with the Principal's Sadistic Choice. In no way whatsoever was that going to end well.
  • Inconsistent Dub: His name in the games is Mr. Shepar; the anime calls him Mr. Shepard.
  • Meaningful Name: Shepard references are fairly rare, but he seems to serve as one for his class.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Those vials he carries around his neck are apparently filled with coffee and milk. He apparently drinks Blend #107.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: His first moment face-to-face with Geo is spent suggesting Luna back off a smidge. Geo takes to him instantly.
  • Sadistic Choice: The Principal decides to force him either to use the Matter Wave on his students or lose his job, requiring him either to fail his students or his children. And then Libra shows up.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: It's speculated in-universe that his hair's so poofy because he runs failed experiments every now and again.
  • Touched by Vorlons: He gets possessed by Libra and Wave Changes with him.

Pat Sprigs and Rey(Futaba Tsukasa and Hikaru)
Wave Scanner: Pegasus (Anime)
EM Human: Gemini Spark
"I get the feeling that we're going to be good friends."

A quiet, cheerful and very mysterious student that Geo meets after Luna finally manages to get him back to school. Geo and Pat quickly become good friends (so much so that Geo doesn't quite know how to deal with it), a situation helped by sitting next to each other in class. While they initially hit it off quite well, it eventually becomes apparent that Pat is a little... strange. It turns out that Pat is Gemini's host, and has plans to turn Japan into a war zone by demonstrating how utterly pointless such niceties as Brother Bands really are. Or, well, technically that's Rey's plan; Rey being Pat's much less pleasant split personality.

In the anime, Geo and Pat meet sometime after Geo returns to school, when Pat is helping Mr. Shepard prepare for his science lecture at the local university. While they become good friends, Pat instead attends class 5-C, so he's absent from much of the early anime, but when he does appear, it's often as the fifth member of Geo's circle (what with Misora being busy as an idol). Here, he is also Gemini's host, but, for some reason, Rey doesn't exist, so Gemini himself forms Spark Black. Which leads to a really strange finale.

  • Adaptational Villainy: In the games, Pat was merely an Unwitting Pawn to both Ray and Gemini. In the anime, Pat willingly helps Gemini in his plan to destroy the earth and overthrow the FM King. Also, his prolonged exposure to Gemini gradually causes him to become more deranged and he eventually kills Gemini to fuel Andromeda.
  • Affably Evil: In the games, he feels guilt over lying to Geo and fighting him as Gemini Spark, which eventually leads to him pulling a Heel–Face Turn. Averted in the anime, where none of his positive qualities are genuine.
  • Ambiguous Gender:
    • The game deliberately goes for androgyny with him. Usually the best way to tell between a boy and a girl with the name Tsukasa is if it uses Kanji or Hiragana; in the game, his name is spelled with Katakana, instead.
    • Pat is another good example, being short for both Patrick and Patricia.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Yep. This is downplayed in the anime, where he spends less face-time with Geo; there, he's just bishounen.
  • The Atoner: In the second game Bonus material.
  • The Aloner: Having no family to speak of will do that to you.
  • Ax-Crazy:
    • Rey has no intentions of getting along with the class.
    • And in the anime, Tsukasa is even more kill-happy than Gemini by the end.
  • Backstory:
    • The poor boy was found by a salvage robot in a trash dump - he draws the same conclusion about his parents that you do.
    • In the anime, he was caught beneath a massive fuel carrier in a traffic accident, and when the truck caught fire, the crowd immediately scattered (though someone had indeed called a rescue team). And then Gemini appeared, exploiting his psychological vulnerability and offering to save him in exchange for his partnership.
  • Big Bad Friend: Pat is legitimately good friends with Geo. Not that it'll stop him from his plans.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Downplayed in the games, where he really was fond of Geo despite being a willing partner with Gemini. Played straight in the anime, where his friendship with Geo is false and he's just as omnicidal as his partner.
  • Break the Cutie: His earliest memories are less than pleasant.
  • The Cameo: His name features in a Team Name option in Black Ace and Red Joker.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Yes, please.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Pat's a major character in the first game, an Easter Egg in the second, and a fond memory in the third.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: See Backstory above. He got his name from the towel he was wrapped in.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Anime only. Tsukasa is almost always calm and cheerful, even downright friendly while declaring that Earth is about to be destroyed and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Has a very feminine appearance.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Geo.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Just read the rest of the notes on Tsukasa's role in the anime finale.
  • Foil: To Geo. Geo's got a much sunnier personality than Pat's low-key and understated mannerisms, especially in the Gemini chapter of the game. Note also the different color schemes: Geo's use of primary colors Red and Blue to Pat's secondary Green and Purple. Also, Pat and Rey are this, too.
  • Future Spandex: Pat is one of the few characters who actually wears any.
  • Heel–Face Brainwashing: In the anime, Pat has his memories erased by Cepheus.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Non-fatal, but Pat shows up to take the hit when Gemini tries to kill Geo in the games.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Subverted. Pat really not against the whole evil thing. Even moreso in the anime, where Tsukasa simply ignores any attempts to debate his "blow up the planet" plan.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: Pat and Rey make quite a lot of sense considered as a split set of Yin and Yang. Feminine and masculine, soft and hard, gentle and violent.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: In the anime, Pat goes for a double twist in the Pike position.
  • Karma Houdini: Subverted in the anime. Tsukasa survives the first season, but is brainwashed into good by Cepheus. If anything, his fate is more Laser-Guided Karma due to his earlier use of Gemini's powers to brainwash people.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: After Spark White (Tsukasa) slays Spark Black (Gemini) in the anime, King Cepheus strips him of his power and all memories of what happened starting from when he met Gemini.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: The anime really doesn't bother hiding that Pat is Gemini's host.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Has long green hair.
  • Metaphorically True: When Pat shares his backstory with Geo, he tells him that he doesn't hate his birth parents for what they did. Because that hatred split off into the Rey personality.
  • Merchandise-Driven: Most characters use a Transer. In the anime, Pat uses a Wave Scanner instead; he feeds headphones into it.
  • More Than Mind Control: Unlike the other Wave Change fusions, Pat willingly joins with Gemini to get his revenge on humanity - he and Rey control their forms directly, as opposed to just about everyone else. In the anime, Tsukasa gets seriously messed up for hanging around with Gemini for too long.
  • Nice Guy: Pat practically radiates gentility. On the surface.
  • No Social Skills: He has decidedly offputting mannerisms when you first meet him. Later, he admits that as much as he wants to be Geo's friend, he has no idea how to deal with people so he's afraid he'll just end up hurting him even if he doesn't mean to.
  • Offhand Backhand: In the anime, during Cygnus's final attack on Earth, he deletes one of Cygnus' soldiers (who seemingly mistook him for a normal human since he wasn't transformed at the time) with a battle card without even bothering to turn toward him.
  • Psycho Electro: Psycho before the Electro, but happily Pat's got a handle on it by the second game.
  • Sanity Slippage: In the Anime, EM Wave Change partners who spend time with each other generally begin to overlap personalities. By the end of the series, Tsukasa goes totally bonkers - actually sacrificing Gemini himself to Andromeda.
  • Shadow Archetype: Again to Geo. He can willingly Wave Change, has one of the most humanoid Wave Human forms, and Spark White's left arm is enhanced, just like Mega Man's; he has two missing parents to Geo's one; and he has an aggressive personality in his life as well, except where Mega tries to get Geo to live a little, Rey tries to get Pat to ruin lives.
  • Sixth Ranger: The first game strongly nudges Pat towards Geo's inner circle, but he never quite joins up.
  • Split Personality: In the games. Rey is Pat's Ax Crazy alter ego and Gemini Black.
  • Starfish Character: As Gemini Spark.
  • They're Called "Personal Issues" for a Reason
  • Touched by Vorlons: He's Gemini's host. He also keeps Gemini's powers in the second game despite no longer being his host.
  • Villainous Breakdown: The child goes Flying Off the Slippery Slope.
  • Walking Spoiler: Oh, man.
  • Walking the Earth: After the first game.
  • Wham Episode:
    • The introduction to Gemini's chapter should have been this, though it really just deflated most of the tension of the reveal that Pat was the human antagonist.
    • In the anime, Andromeda's attempt to lay waste to the surface of the planet (in spite of its incomplete Power Source) is successfully stopped by Rock Man and the Satellite Admins, and it looks like the day is saved. Gemini Spark (Black) curses him and wants to know if the Andromeda Key is still incomplete... it is, but Tsukasa fixes that by literally backstabbing Black and using the completed key to fully reconstruct Andromeda.
    Tsukasa: I should've done this earlier.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He would totally be a White-Haired Pretty Boy if not for the green.
  • Yuki Kaida

The Satellite Admins

Just beyond Earth's atmosphere are the three great satellites that are the source and foundation of Earth's modern Wave World. Each of these Satellites, Pegasus, Leo, and Dragon, are responsible for upgrading and adminstering over the Wave Road and most of modern Earth tech; they're actually responsible for the sudden and rapid acceleration of Earth's technological progress. While grateful, the humans below really have less an idea than they'd like about how they work.

Part of the reason for this is because the Satellites are run by living creatures foreign to human ken. The Satellite Admins, Pegasus Magic, Leo Kingdom, and Dragon Sky, are actually alien EM Beings who are watching over the humans below for reasons known only to them.

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: These guys are HUGE.
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: Pegasus Magic, Leo Kingdom, and Dragon Sky? Yup.
  • Because Destiny Says So: The Admins declare that destiny is at work when Geo and Mega meet each other, given that Geo is Kelvin's child.
  • Black Box: Next to no one on Earth has any idea how the Satellites work. Kelvin might, but he's not here right now.
  • Blow You Away: Part of Dragon Sky's Nature abilities. Possibly for Pegasus Magic, if freezing gales (Blizzard) count.
  • Bonus Boss: In the first game.
  • Bullfight Boss: Pegasus Magic's Star Road is a straight charging attack and Dragon Sky's Dragon Road has him swoop through Mega Man's area from behind.
  • Cards of Power: In the anime, they convert themselves into the Star Force cards.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Each of the Admins comes in a distinct color, which corresponds to their particular element.
  • Continuity Nod: Dragon Sky's Woody Lance attack uses the Wood Towers from Mega Man Battle Network.
  • Desperation Attack: Each of the Satellite Admins at the SP level will use their strongest attack upon losing three quarters of their health, and each will cost Mega Man 600 HP. Pegasus Freeze, Leo Blazer, and Dragon Cyclone are, as their names suggest, the original, fully powered versions of the Star Force Big Bangs.
  • Deus ex Machina: The Satellites were constantly mentioned in the snippet introductions of the first season, and their mysterious power feature prominently throughout episode 28, but the AM-seijin are a sudden drop on the audience.
  • Dragons Up the Yin Yang: Dragon Sky is an eastern dragon with an allignment to wood rather than water.
  • Elemental Powers: Ice for Pegasus, Fire for Leo, and Wood for Dragon. So much so that they may actually each be an Elemental Embodiment.
  • Energy Beings: Some of the most powerful around.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: When appearing to someone on earth in the first game, they use shadowy, black avatars.
  • Fighting a Shadow: Quite literally; Geo fights a dark apparition of the version's admin to prove he's worthy of the Star Force. You don't get to face the actual being until way later.
  • Fusion Dance: In the anime, the AM-ians exist within the cards they grant Geo, so when Mega predates one of the cards with Star Break, it's this; in the original games, the cards only call upon a smidgeon of their power.
  • Our Giants Are Different: The FM-ians treat the Admins like Giants of their own kind.
  • Gratuitous English: Everywhere in the series to the point that it's a surprise when Dragon Sky has an attack in Japanese: Hyakkaryouran (The Profound Blooming of a Thousand Cherry Blossoms).
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the anime, they sacrifice themselves to defeat Andromeda. Too bad Andromeda can regenerate.
  • Kill It with Fire: Leo Kingdom can do it.
  • Kill It with Ice: If he can't, Pegasus Magic can.
  • Killed Off for Real: In the anime, they sacrifice themselves to damage Andromeda enough for Mega Man to fight it off, ending their own existence in the process.
  • Mega Neko: Leo Kingdom is just a giant lion. A giant lion made of FIRE.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: They provide Mega Man with the Star Force.
  • One Game for the Price of Two: The Satellite Admin that bestows his power upon Geo depends on which Satellite his Transer is alligned to, which, in turn, depends on the version of the game. In the anime, they all grant him their power.
  • Panthera Awesome: You can't get much better than a giant lion made of fire.
  • Pegasus: Magic. Duh.
  • Petal Power: Dragon Sky's Hyakkaryouran is basically him breathing a wave of cherry blossom petals at his foes. Petals of pain.
  • Physical God: It says something about Crown Thunder that he's the only EM Being on their level.
  • Power Floats: Like all EM beings.
  • The Watcher: Their role in a nutshell. They watch and protect the planet.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: The admins are so powerful that they can only appear on Earth through shadowy avatars; when they want to speak to Geo and Mega directly, they summon them to outer space. They also decline to fight Geo with their full power until he's collected enough stars.

Vaughn and Veil Platz (Naruo and Yuriko Shirogane)

Luna's fabulously wealthy family, the owners of Department Store Nacy's in Times Square. We don't get to meet them until the Ophiuchus Chapter in the first game, but when we do, we find out Luna's under a great deal of stress... so much so that things take a turn for the nasty when Luna finally says no.

Following the events of the chapter, the family reconciles and becomes much, much healthier, though the Platzes themselves don't have much to say in the later games.

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: Vaughn's obvious middle age actually emphasizes Veil's youth in compaison.
  • The Beautiful Elite: Where'd you think Luna got it from? Most of Geo's observations of the Platz condo involve noting how much higher quality everything is.
  • Big Fancy House: In the anime.
  • Bland-Name Product: Nacy's Department Store (in Japan, it's known as 103 Depart or "Department Store #103").
  • Boarding School: They speculate on whether or not to send Luna there, which is the absolute last straw for the girl.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: They both have this, but Veil remains more visible than Vaughn does in the second game, being one of Luna's four Brother Bands.
  • Demoted to Extra: Later games mainly treat them as footnotes on Luna.
  • Education Mama: Luna's parents both demand excellence from her, especially regarding her school work. backfires horribly when Luna gets possessed by Ophucia
  • Fantasy-Forbidding Father: Luna's father is quite strict.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Post-reconciliation Veil wants to cook something for her family but doesn't know what or how, so Geo nets her a recipe from his own mother.
  • Fiction 500: In the anime, apparently, given that they have such a huge estate and staff. Not as bad as the Ayanokojis, thankfully. In the games, they own a department store, but that's it.
  • Good Parents: After Queen Ophiuchus' chapter.
  • Happily Married: This trope becomes more apparent following Ophiuchus' chapter.
  • Jerkass: Not the most pleasant people to say the least. They get better.
  • Maternally Challenged: Veil, after the Queen Ophiuchus chapter. She's getting better.
  • May–December Romance: Vaughn is noticeably older than Veil.
  • Meganekko: Veil, Luna's mother. In the anime, it's revealed that Luna wears contacts instead.
  • My Beloved Smother: Luna harbors resentment over her upbringing, which she compares to being treated like a doll.
  • Ojou Ringlets: Veil actually fits the TvTropes definition; compare Luna, who orbits it.
  • One Steve Limit: In the dub? Sure. However, Yuriko shares a name with Mariko-sensei's twin sister from the orignal Battle Network series.
  • Overprotective Dad: To their credit, the mainreason the want to transfer Luna is to get her out of danger.
  • Parental Abandonment: The anime treats them both as straight absentees. The one mention that they get from the anime reveals that her father is in Azerbaijan and her mother is at the international airport.
  • Properly Paranoid: As long as she sticks around, Luna, like everyone else in Echo Ridge, is in serious danger from the FM-ians.
  • Socialite: Both of them, but only offscreen.
  • Stealth Pun: Veil's favorite Battle Cards are the Ice Meteor series and three Ice stages, making her a subtle Ice Queen. It may also double as a nod to the fact that the igloo display on the first floor of Nacy's is also the only place the snakes won't touch when Queen Ophiuchus takes over the department store.
  • Upper-Class Twit: If you're wondering where Luna got it from. Again, they get better.
  • Veronica: Veil to Hope, the Betty. The two never meet face-to-face, but Geo scores a recipe off of his mother so Veil can cook something for her family.

Damian Wolfe (Juurou Ogami)
Transer: Dragon (Anime)
Wizard: Wolf
EM Human: Wolf Woods
Trans-Code: 011
Voice Actor: Tetsu Inada
"I can only calm down fighting!"

Damian Wolfe is a gardener employed by Nacy's Department Store, and later by Echo Ridge Elementary, whose work is highly coveted. While in he works in high-traffic areas, Damian is not at all a social person and generally avoids crowds, partially because he scares people, and partially because he hosts a belligerant alien named Wolf whose presence agitates Damian, especially during the full moon. He is absent for the second game, but returns in the third.

In the anime, Damian is the gardener instead to a wealthy landowner living in Echo Ridge. While all-business with his employer, he shares mutual feelings for the man's daughter, Samantha, and is actually courting her. A wrench is thrown into this relationship when Wolf shows up and commandeers his mind and body; Damian's arc consists of him struggling to keep Wolf sealed inside of him.

  • Animal Motifs: Wolves, natch.
  • Animal Stereotypes: The lone wolf. Averted in the anime, where he is courting Samantha.
  • Animorphism: In the anime, Damian's first episode is largely him struggling to keep Wolf from manifesting. He spontaneously grows Wolf Woods' ears, tail, claws, snout....
  • Anti-Villain: Insofar as he even qualifies for a villain; really, he's more a Blood Knight neutral. While he's dangerous to know, he himself takes measures to avoid causing real harm (mostly by being anti-social). He only battles Mega Man to satiate his Blood Knight nature, and even when he wins he doesn't delete Mega Man. Completely becomes a hero by the third game, having become a member of Project TC and Satella.
  • Ascended Extra: Just about everyone was surprised when he showed up in Black Ace and Red Joker. Even Geo.
  • Blood Knight: Wolf's presence agitates his love of fighting into an outright craving.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He has a few shades of this in the third game, but only around Geo, who may be the closest thing he has to human friendship. It usually crops up when he's in the mood for a fight... which is always.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Missing from the second game, and assumed to be missing from the third, until Ascended Extra kicked in.
  • Dish Dash: In Concept Art. At one point, to save a falling potted plant, he springs forward and Wave Changes to catch it with Wolf Woods' upturned nose.
  • Face of a Thug: The scar across the nose probably doesn't help.
  • Friend to All Living Things: When we first meet him in the anime, Geo notices all the small birds collecting on his shoulders. People, not so much.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has one right across his nose.
  • Heroic Resolve: Played with in the anime. He has no idea what, exactly, he's got inside of him, but, dammit, it's going to stay in there if he has anything to say about it.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Geo in the third game. The two are actually quite pleased to get reacquainted.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Wolf.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Was mildly antisocial even before he met Wolf. Now he shuns people outright.
  • Lunacy: There are elements of this in the anime. With Wolf trapped inside of him, objects that remind Damian of the moon weaken his concentration and risk freeing Wolf. Of course, Samantha drags him on an unofficial shopping date through the mall, which is current hosting a sports competition involving hundreds of soccer balls, basket balls, footballs and the like, which all trigger his Animorphism. Yes, footballs.
  • One-Shot Character: In the anime.
  • Touched by Vorlons: With Wolf.
  • Warrior Poet: He's quite skilled with hedge sculpture.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: A werewolf-themed EM being.
  • Worthy Opponent: Wolf and Mega, while not on the same side, have a great mutual respect for each other in the anime. This leads them to both chide themselves for being foolish when they wonder why that cutseyed up doglike creature over there looks so familiar; no way would he EVER be a part of a dog show. That would be silly.

Legendary Master Shin

Transer: Unaffiliated.
"I can feel your Legendary soul!"

A recurring extra in the Star Force series, and a self-insert for Masakazu Eguichi. In the first game, he appears atop the roof of AMAKEN, and creates Legend cards for Geo, usable instances of his Best Combos. In the second game, he hangs out at the Shopping Plaza in Wilshire Hills, where in addition to his Legend Card services, he also runs the Sky-High Colosseum. He appears once again in the third game, but instead of providing his signature services, he offers a brief televised explanation of Noise.

  • Almighty Janitor: He's consistently well-informed on Geo's activities, even keeping tabs on his activities in the alternate world in the second game.
  • Author Avatar: Another one for Masakazu Eguchi, scenario developer for the series.
  • Cards of Power: He creates Best Combo Cards for Geo.
  • Demoted to Extra: Zig-Zagged in the third game: he no longer offers to create Legend Cards or run the Sky-High Colosseum, but he has actual plot relevence in exchange.
  • Gratuitous English: His Japanese title is Legend Master.
  • Iconic Item: His Visualizer.
  • It Only Works Once: A Legend card is a single usable instance of Mega Man's recorded combo. After it's used, a new one must be created. These are Too Awesome to Use for standard virus battles.
  • Large Ham: He can definitely ham it up.
  • Making a Spectacle of Yourself: He has a unique Visualizer, too.
  • Non-Action Guy
    Shin's Secret: "To be honest... I'm not very good at fighting. I, myself, don't do any of the fighting. Let's just say... that my role is a supporting one! It's a Legendary Secret!"
  • Verbal Tic: Legendary!

Couronne the XIV

Full Name: Jean Couronne Welmond Jour Jovonne XIV
EM Human: Crown Thunder
"For centuries, this crown and I have wandered the Earth. Alas, I have grown weary."

A ghost who lingers in the Dream Island junkyard during the aftermath of the first game. A king and descendant of a long line of warriors, Couronne was cursed to wander the earth after Wave-Changing with the FM-ian Crown. After happening across him, Geo and Mega are challenged to fight his Wave World form, Crown Thunder, one of the toughest boss fights in the game.

Being dead, his anime incarnation doesn't really have much to say, instead serving as a plot device for Crown, who is detailed below.

Iver Gatte (NPC)

A pleasant old man who lives in Geo's hometown of Echo Ridge. While largely innocuous, he has a lot to say about a few key details of the plot in the first game.

Kelvin Stelar (Daigo Hoshikawa)

Transer: Pegasus (Anime)

Geo's father, the one-and-only, whose travels to the farthest end of the galaxy kicked off the events of the series. A major influence in Geo's life, even after his long disappearance, the circumstances surrounding his disappearance are as mysterious as they get. Now, Omega-Xis knows, but has an invested interest in not telling Geo.

  • Anime Hair: Not nearly to the extent of his son, but it's noticeably spiky.
  • Badass Bookworm: A gifted scientist and astronaut. And the only thing that kept the Earth from being destroyed by a giant meteor.
  • Bear Hug: Squeezes Omega-Xis, Hope, and Geo together upon his return to Earth. Funny thing is, Hope and Geo are enjoying it while the alien is choking to death.
  • Brainy Brunette: Like Father, Like Son.
  • The Captain: Of the Space Station Peace.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown eyes and hair.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: He was trying to save humanity from an evil meteor.
  • Dead Person Conversation: Subverted, as Kelvin's not dead.
  • Disappeared Dad: He was lost during a First Contact mission gone awry. We find he was spared bodily harm by being transformed into an EM Being.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Finally gets reunited with his family in the ending of the third game.
  • Geek Physique: Averted. He's quite buff.
  • Good Parents: What we do see from him when he's around is solid fatherhood, and his not being around isn't his fault.
  • Happily Married: With Hope.
  • Heroic Resolve: He's been holding back Meteor G through sheer force of will.
  • The Homeward Journey: After being turned into an EM being by Mega, he tried to get back home, but had to take a detour when he discovered Meteor G. Once it's destroyed, he finally reunites with his family.
  • Hot Scientist: A male example. He may be an astronaut, but he has to be well-versed in science to survive in the outskirts of space and hold back a meteor that's crawling with Viruses and enough Crimson to wipe out all technology on Earth.
  • Hunk: Compared to the overweight Aaron and the skinny Tom, Kelvin's broad-shouldered, muscular, and stubbled aversion of Geek Physique stands out all the more.
  • Like Father, Like Son: A major theme of the entire series. In the anime, Daigo is the only other human Omega-Xis is known to be compatible with.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • "Kelvin" may just be a riff on the scientific measuring system, but the last name "Stelar" best applies to him, being an astronaut and all.
    • "Daigo", on the other hand, is written only in hiragana, but is the straight pronunciation meaning one of two things in Buddhism, either "enlightenment" or "Nirvana". During the series, the image of his father features in Subaru's Dream Sequences to dispense wisdom or moral guidance.
  • Mysterious Parent: The first game, or at least the portions not directly tied to FM-ian combat, basically revolves around this.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Hope certainly thinks so.
  • Never Found the Body: Finding a body after a space station accident (as in the place basically exploded) is really kind of... stretching it, but Kelvin's so badass we'll let it slide.
  • Passing the Torch: See Take Up My Sword, below.
  • Perma-Stubble: Being trapped in space for years without a razor in sight hasn't stopped him from getting a decent shave.
  • Punny Name: His name has no real significance for his character; it's just vaguely Science-y.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Concept Art sticks Kelvin in the middle of one, along with Aaron.
  • So Proud of You: His opinion of Geo.
  • Spanner in the Works: His dealings with the FM-ians eventually results in the creation of Mega Man, which poses a certain problem to the Neo Mu Empire and Dealer.
  • Spirit Advisor: Geo has a series of inspirational conversations with him in his dreams. Given that we know he can be contacted through those dreams, whether Geo is having epiphanies or actual conversations is open for interpretation. Especially in the third game, where Ace and Joker both appear as well. Subverted in that he's not dead.
  • Take Up My Sword: Kelvin leaves Geo the Kaiser Knuckle, the Infinity -1 Sword, in the first game's Bonus Dungeon.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Hope remembers in the second game that Kelvin loved Carrot Gratin.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Kelvin appears to be the only crew member worth caring about. Rest of the crew? ...There was a crew?
  • You Can't Go Home Again: He was stuck as a spacebound EM Being for a good four years.

The Virus Man (Nameless Artist)

A mostly unimportant Character of the Week from the anime who poses more trouble than he really has any right to. A failed artist whose temper tantrum over losing an art contest is interrupted when a McChopper virus accidentally happens acoss him after just barely managing to escape deletion at Mega Man's hands. The resulting combination, surprisingly, is not a Jammer (as it would've been in the games), but a much larger, more intelligent, more destructive McChopper virus.

  • Ax-Crazy: Under the influence of the virus.
  • Berserk Button: How on earth can anyone go without recognizing his art as superior? HOW?!
  • Blade Spam: Apparently, creating art involves taking a sword to it. Again. And again. And again.
  • Canon Foreigner: Only appears in the anime.
  • Cool Sword: Like the McChopper he fused with, this guy wields a pair of them.
  • Demonic Possession: A variant. The virus is much more animalistic than malevolent, so it really just adds a huge level of aggression and dull-mindedness to the guy.
  • Dual Wielding: Wields two swords like any McCleaver.
  • Eyes Always Shut: In his normal human form.
  • Fusion Dance: Between a weedy artist and a McChopper virus.
  • Geek Physique: He's really kind of scrawny and wiry until the McChopper gets ahold of him. Even then, he's not really bulky.
  • Giftedly Bad: He can't imagine why his sculpture wasn't prized by the judges. It sucks, that's why.
  • Mad Artist: Under the influence of the McChopper.
  • Madness Mantra:
    • "Art Master, Art Master, Art Master, Art Master, Art Master, Art Master..."
    • In the dub: "To create, I must destroy!!"
  • Monster of the Week: For some reason, the anime decided not to go with the original Jamming design and instead turned the man into a giant, (more) humanoid McChopper.
  • No Name Given: His real name is never mentioned.
  • One-Shot Character: The B Plot in the episode where Geo and Mega get Copper to stop chasing them.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He spends his episode wrecking an art museum.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He was already on the verge of a temper-tantrum when we first meet him; fusing with an animalistic virus certainly didn't help.
  • Reality Ensues: What happens when you punch a statue? You hurt yourself, as this guy found out.
  • Revenge: On all art that isn't his.
  • Sinister Scimitar: His swords are scimitars.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: Wears a sleeveless shirt.
  • Sword over Head: At one point he attempts to dispatch Bob Copper.
  • Touched by Vorlons: The lesser kind, much to everyone's dismay.
  • Verbal Tic: "-basa", which is derived from the speech of the virus he fused from.

Samantha (Himeka)

Transer: Leo

A character introduced during Damian's and Wolf's introductory arc, the daughter of Damian's employer. She and Damian share a budding romance which is troubled by the gardener's sudden struggle with the alien in his head.

  • Back for the Finale: She shows up in the crowd at Misora's concert during the Tribe finale, next to Mayu.
  • Big Fancy House: Next door to Kodama Elementary.
  • Canon Foreigner: A character made solely for the anime.
  • Cooldown Hug: A variation: she puts herself in harms way, attempting to trigger Damian's self-control. He recognizes the brace on her arm.
  • Guile Hero: She hides a few shades of manipulation. When Damian declines to accompany her on a shopping trip she traps him by asking if he's opposed to being with her, which he adamantly denies. Even her father can't help but notice this.
  • Hair Decs
  • Love Interest: Damian's.
  • The Ojou
  • One-Shot Character: Only shows up in Damian's introductory episode.
  • Sweet Tooth: She likes baking pastries, apparently.
  • Through His Stomach: When the woman first appears, she offers Damian cake, and when that fails, she brings out the cookies. The tea in the heart-shaped glasses certainly isn't helping, subtlety-wise.

Mayu Asakura

Wave Scanner: Leo.

This absolutely adorable little girl is introduced fairly late into the anime during an arc focusing on the FM-ian Wolf. After taking off from the FM-ians after clashing with Taurus, Wolf realizes he needs a place to hide from the Satellite Police and Detective Goyouda. He finds himself adopted as Mayu's Denpa Pet, and decides to continue posing as her dog in order to avoid the police. After getting to know one another, Mayu eventually decides to enter "Ricky" in a contest, only for things to get out of hand very quickly.

  • Back for the Finale: She shows up in the crowd at Misora's concert during the Tribe finale, next to Samantha.
  • Badass Adorable: It takes balls to walk up to a rampaging Wolf Woods, or, well, you know what we mean.
  • The Cutie: So, so much.
  • Cry Cute: Wolf's attempt to show her who's boss (he refuses to eat dog food) is instantly negated by the tears streaming down her face (okay, so she had a little help from Wolf's terror of her other pet, Franky, but still).
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Her attempts to name Wolf range from Pochi-kun to Harmineum to Article Number 13. She decides on Ricky.
  • Everything's Precious with Puppies: The girl has been aching for a D-Pet. She gets her wish come to true when Wolf hides out in her Wave Scanner.
  • Friendless Background: Implied; she's not shown to have any friends, and wistfully gazes at all the people who are gushing over the Denpa Pets that have just come into fashion.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Like any little girl, she wears pigtails.
  • Hair Decs: Has blue orbs in her hair.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Blue eyes and is the sweetest character in the anime.
  • Invisible Parents: We see a woman cleaning house fom behind, who is probably her mother, but there's no direct interaction.
  • Merchandise-Driven: She has a Leo-alligned Wave Scanner rather than a Transer.
  • Morality Pet: Inverted. Wolf softens up after he disguises himself as her pet.
  • One-Shot Character: She's just there to be Wolf's Morality Pet. Though she does make a brief Cameo in the finale.
  • Useless Accessory: See Merchandise Driven.
  • When She Smiles: She smiles a fair bit during her appearances, but when we first see her, she's pretty down in the dumps.
  • Woobie of the Week: By the time you're done watching her episode, you'll wanna give the girl a hug.


     The FM-ians 


  • Aliens Speaking English: All of them speak English (or Japanese, depending on the version or dub). Some even have verbal tics.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Many of the FM-ians and their EM Human forms have these. Cygnus is a swan, Taurus is an ox or cow, Ophiuca is a snake, Cancer is a crab, and Wolf is a wolf.
  • Ascended Extra: Most of the FM-ians become characters in their own right during the anime, though how much of that characterization is in line with the snippets of personality we see in the games is up for interpretation. Heck, it's been suggested that the FM-ians become main characters during the second half of the anime.
  • Back from the Dead: Defeating an FM-ian by no means ensures they will no longer harass you. King Cepheus himself restores and further empowers his lieutenants during the endgame Boss Rush. Not that they mention this in the anime, where, bizarrely, everyone comes Back for the Finale, even the two main villains.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: When they all combine forces they can be something of a threat... until Geo pulls out the Star Force.
  • Big Eater: In the anime, the FM-ians can put it away, often leaving stacks of empty boxed lunches and still having enough room for more.
  • Calling Your Attacks: In the anime, the FM-ians announce their strikes. Interestingly, some of the FM-ians can use their attacks while not in their fused forms.
  • Character Focus: for 15 episodes no less. Episodes 34-49 all involve their individual attempts to fit in and adapt to human life while stranded.
  • Chest Insignia: Each of the FM-ians' EM Human forms has their symbol displayed prominently across their chest. In the anime, those symbols appear on their human disguises and mark how much time they have left in their forced EM Human forms.
  • Day in the Limelight: Lots of them following the premiere of the Star Force. Some even get multiple days.
  • Deal with the Devil: In the first game, the FM-ians uniformly appeal to and exploit their chosen host's weaknesses, offering to help them "solve" their problem in exchange for their help searching for the Andromeda Key.
  • Demonic Possession: In the anime, they possess and subjugate their hosts. In the games, their host's personalities emerge, though the FM-ians are clearly in charge of their minds.
  • Deuteragonist: The FM-ians are main characters and get as much focus as Geo and Omega-Xis in the second half of the anime's first season.
  • Dub Name Change: Ox and Harp had their names changed to Taurus and Lyra for the dub, which included them in the Stellar Theme Naming. Wolf and Crown were, oddly, untouched.
  • Elemental Powers: Most FM-ians employ supernatural abilities based in one of the elements from the series' Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors system.
  • Energy Beings: Being made of electromagnetic waves and all.
  • Goldfish Poop Gang: With the Star Force capable of steamrollering them, the anime decided there wasn't much point to layering them with any menace.
  • Gratuitous English: A lot of the character and attack names use one of the two western languages, mostly English.
  • Hand Wave: Like Omega-Xis, the FM-ians are mysteriously weaker than otherwise in Earth's atmosphere, and require hosts to restore themselves.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Taurus, Ophiuchus, and King Cepheus all have humanoid forms. Sometimes Wolf counts, too, in the Anime, treating his forelimbs like arms.
  • Identical Stranger: They masquerade as their original hosts in the anime.
  • Just Following Orders: In the anime, they would probably find other things to spend their time on if they could.
  • Large Ham: Many of them. Standouts have this listed beneath their names.
  • Living Bodysuit: A variation in the anime; by using Cygnus' materialization device, the FM-ians can masquerade as their original human hosts sufficiently to blend in with human society.
  • Only Sane Man: The great irony of the squad is how each member thinks of himself as this. Which one is right tends to depend on what day of the week it is.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Rajione VI, a giant EM meteor, passes by, almost all of the EM aliens are endowed with new personalities; Omega-Xis included.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Whenever they rampage, they tend to cause a tremendous amount of damage, leveling buildings, wrecking vehicles, and flooding areas.
  • Power Floats: When in natural form, they almost always levitate off the ground due to being made of pure energy like that.
  • Punch Clock Villains: Increasingly across the anime; as they adapt to a human way of life, their goal of bringing despair to the humans becomes more and more nominal. And when the FM King gives the order to return home, they decide to spend the last three days on earth doing whatever they want before heading back.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: The premiere of the Star Force kicked the FM-ians so far down the threat ladder it's not funny. With Mega Man able to one-shot them with any of the Star Force cards, they aren't much of a threat anymore. They can only cause trouble and damage the city before being driven off.
  • Recurring Boss: The Boss Rush at the end of the 1st game results in this for Taurus, Cygnus, Libra, Ophiuchus, and Gemini (the last of whom jumps the gun and tries to kill Geo ahead of schedule).
  • Stellar Name: Most (if not all) of the FM-ians are based in Western Constellations and Classical Mythology, which appears in their names. Some of them, however, have plain English names where the Constellation names would fit in just fine (Wolf and Crown instead of Lupus and Corona).
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Everyone holds this opinion. Whoever is currently having their Day in the Limelight has this opinion validated.
  • Villain Ball: The FM-ians attacked Libra's game show because they figured they ought to put him in his place. This is after Libra has been bringing home free food for weeks for them at this point.
  • Villains Out Shopping: The second half of the anime is filled with examples of the FM-ians adapting to Earth life, and in Ophiucha's case, this trope is quite literal.
  • Willing Channeler: The FM-ians in the game seek to get their chosen hosts to accept their powers. In the anime, they can forcefully possess them instead.


  • Black Shirt: Possibly. Jammers appear to retain the personalities of their hosts, so this is up for debate.
  • Body Snatcher: The viruses that create the Jammers appear to be these.
  • Call-Back: These guys are Star Force's equivalent to the Heel Navis from Mega Man Battle Network.
  • Demonic Possession: Maybe. Whether a Jammer's virus or the host's mind is in charge is entirely up for grabs.
  • Elite Mooks: Virus/Human hybrids being a step up from just viruses.
  • Gatling Good: The Jamming Vulcan attack morphs one of the Jamming's arms into a gatling gun and fires it.
  • Giant Mook: Some Jammers are huge.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: When not using their vulcans, Jammers will use their fists instead.
  • The Heavy: For all the problems in the first game not immediately connectable to any of the named FM-ians.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: The fight with the Jammer in the school is completely unwinnable until Geo gets the Star Force.
  • Meat Puppet: Whether a Jammer's host is this or fully in charge of the fusion tends to be a tossup. The first Jammer Mega Man meets is a car thief working from the inside of the onboard computer.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Jammers have red eyes.
  • Touched by Vorlons: A dark variant. Cepheus gives them the power to turn humans into EM waves.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Three Jammers gleefully beat up Geo near the end of the game. Had the Satellite Admits not intervened, they would have killed him.
  • Zerg Rush: The FM-ians create hundreds of the guys during their official takeover. Some of the art invokes this trope with a platoon of Jamming marching towards the screen.

Taurus/Ox (Fire)

Host: Bud Bison
"Isn't this your perfect chance to get your revenge?"

  • Animal Mecha: Taurus Fire has some heavily mechanized portions, including his snout, from which his Fire Breath originates.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: His fighting style involves little other than pressing attacks and trying to nail his opponents. Very little strategy is used or even thought of.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: In the anime, the color red is immensely distracting, often causing him to veer of course and damage something other than his intended target.
  • The Berserker: In the anime, after seeing red, he starts attacking wildly.
  • Body Surf: He tries to find a second host in the anime, but after a less than successful run with Goyouda, Cygnus calls him and renders this unnecessary.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's loud and rough and less than subtle.
  • Breath Weapon: Fire Breath. It lets him shoot a gout of flame from his snout.
  • The Brute: In the first game, he is the type who attacks and uses brute force.
  • Bullfight Boss: His Ox Tackle attack.
  • Bull Seeing Red: Taurus has a problem with this; his powers spike in response to the color, but his self-control plummets. It's the central point of a couple of episodes in the anime.
  • Composite Character: Taurus Fire has traits that can be traced back to Battle Network's GutsMan.EXE and FireMan.EXE, including his place in the cast heirarchy. His Anger Punch and its variants are also similar in form to MetalMan.EXE's Metal Fist.
  • Elemental Baggage: One of the series' few nods in this direction — Taurus Fire's stomach is literally a fuel tank.
  • Elemental Punch: Taurus Fire's Burning Punch from the second game; similar in execustion to Anger Punch, this attack also launches a column of fire down the row (like a Flame Tower).
  • Evil Laugh: Moowhahahahaha!! GutsMan, and alien invaders well, not exacly in Uranus' case...
  • Flash Step: Taurus Fire can Warp, which is an actual movement style in the games.
  • The Giant: As Taurus Fire.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: It's not hard to make him angry, especially at the sight of red objects.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the 3rd game, he desires to atone for all the trouble he's caused Bud, and becomes his Wizard.
  • Horn Attack: Part of the Ox Tackle involves brandishing the Ox Horns.
  • Hot-Blooded: To go with the fire powers.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: We meet Taurus Fire IF pursuing a Hertz as prey.
  • Imposter Forgot One Detail: Taurus Fire R (a Black Hole Server agent) briefly masquerades as the original in the third game. Geo and Mega root him out when he accidentally refers to Luna by name, which Bud would never do.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Bud in the third game.
  • Jerkass: Originally.
  • Large Ham: Pig? He is no pig! He is a cow! A COW!!
  • Leeroy Jenkins: In the anime, he can't control himself when he sees the color red. Ophiuchus spends a couple of episodes trying to take advantage of this tendency of his only to give up on it as a bad job.
  • The McCoy: Of the third game's Wizard Power Trio, with Acid and Mega.
  • Megaton Punch: The Anger Punch attack and its variations.
  • Mighty Glacier: Taurus (not Taurus Fire) is involved in a quick battle with Omega-Xis in the anime, where it's pointed out that his emphasis on physical strength leaves him weak to speedier opponents. Subverted in the games, where Taurus Fire picks up a few new attacks that boast high speeds — at his highest level, he can warp around the field like nobody's business, though he's still very simple in his attack patterns.
  • Not Quite Dead: While Taurus was defeated in the first game, there are still residual pieces of him within Bud. This causes some problems. In the third game, he eventually becomes Bud's Wizard.
  • Playing with Fire: In his original appearance, Taurus Fire only had one real Fire attack — Fire Breath. He finds out other ways to incorporate fire into his attacks later on, though.
  • Primal Stance: As Taurus Fire, he tends to let his arms hang down and he hunches over slightly.
  • Punch! Punch! Punch! Uh Oh...: Taurus Fire's ridiculously simple attack pattern is his greatest liability. Mega points it out before his first fight, even.
  • Recurring Boss: Once A Game for... varying reasons.
  • The Remnant: In the third game.
  • Satellite Character: Taurus eventually enters this role after his return in Black and Red, becoming little more than a device for Bud to become Taurus Fire willingly.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Taurus Fire's profile on the official website notes that Taurus Fire's massive size and flames are linked to Bud's massive food consumption.
  • Starter Villain: He's at the absolute bottom of the foodchain in the first game, and his character design draws from the similarly-leveled GutsMan and FireMan.
  • Status Buff: Ophiuchus once tries to create a Limit Break by having Cancer reinforce the Ox Tackle with a Jet Attack Battle Card and further enhancing it with a red snake from her own Snake Legion attack to trigger Bull Seeing Red. While it does improve the attack, it ultimately does little good for Ox and they end up dropping the idea later.
  • Super Strength: Incredibly strong.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: Gonta is huge, but Taurus Fire is maybe two or three times as large. In three, the energy for this comes from the food Bud eats.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Taurus Fire gets a new attack in each game.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Helps give him the upper body strength.
  • The Worf Effect: He shows up briefly in Takamisaki's promotional manga for Ryuusei no Rock Man 3. Getting his butt handed to him by a bunch of mettennas.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Has great strength, but no finesse.
  • Use Your Head: The Ox Tackle.
  • Verbal Tic: His use of cattle noises. He even writes them into his e-mails, which is the clue needed to discern the identity of the anonymous ghost challenging Mega Man to a rematch in the first game.
  • Warm-Up Boss: The first game specifically warns that Taurus Fire has a simplistic attack pattern.

Cygnus (Wing)

Host: Tom Dubius
Voiced by: Nobutoshi Canna (JP), Liam O'Brien (EN)
"Betrayal is the essence of society."

  • Adaptational Badass: In the games, he was simply an early-game boss. in the anime, he puts up an incredible fight against Mega Man, is the first opponent to ever give him trouble, outright defeats him in their second battle, and manages to rally his fellow FM-ians to help fight against and overwhelm Mega Man.
  • Animation Bump: Episode 26.
  • Arc Villain: A noticeable one, considering what he does at the end of the first half of the season.
  • Blow You Away: A couple of Cygnus' attacks employ wind, most notably Dancing Swan.
  • Break Them by Talking: Manages to turn Geo against Mega by telling him he had a hand in Kelvin's disappearance.
  • Bullfight Boss: While he doesn't charge you per se, he does violently invade your space with his Dancing Swan attack.
  • Colony Drop: In the anime, he tries to hit AMAKEN with a falling satellite.
  • Dance Battler: Don't laugh at his Dancing Swan ballet; it can break shields.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Cygnus' return arc actually involves the use of Andromeda.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: In the games, Cygnus Wing is the second boss. In the anime, he's the first enemy FM-ian to appear on Earth be identified by name.
  • Energy Absorption: A rather specific version. According to the Secret Satellite Server, after Cygnus fires his Cygnus Feather Attack, they revert to a specific kind of Wave that he than re-absorbs, regrowing his feathers in turn.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In the anime, his returning gambit is interrupted by Gemini Spark, who try to steal the Andromeda Key. Cygnus realizes they're out to betray King Cepheus.
  • Evil Genius: He proves to be quite brilliant and cunning, between hacking the network to cause a Colony Drop to creating a device that allows his fellow FM-ians to Wave Change without the need for a host. Having Tom for the host only helped.
  • Feather Flechettes: One of Cygnus Wing's attacks is to launch his feathers at the space Mega is standing in. The anime shows his feathers can explode.
  • Flight: Being a swan and all.
  • Flunky Boss: He employs his own personal mini-me viruses called the Cygnets (Shittappaa) both in and out of battle. In the Sim-Space computer, the dungeon's gimmick is to shoot them out of the sky with rockets.
  • Geek Physique: Is decidedly not muscular, Dancing Swan notwithstanding. Don't believe for a second he can't fight, though.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He returns as Tom's Wizard in the third game.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Tom in the third game.
  • Involuntary Dance: In a cutscene, Cygnus Wing has the ability to make anyone gazing at him be hypnotized into spinning around like a ballerina. Mega knows what's up, however, and manages to convince Geo to look away just in time.
  • Killed Off for Real: Cygnus was the first to die in the anime.
  • Knight of Cerebus: In the anime. His introductory episode had him trying to outright murder people via Colony Drop. Gets darker when he makes his return.
  • Large and in Charge: Compared to the Cygnets, at least.
  • The Leader: Leads the FM-ians when he returns, building a machine that allows them to materialize in the real world as their Wave Changed forms.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Hey, Geo! You knew that Omega-Xis led the attack on the Space Station, right? Oh, you didn't? That's too bad.
  • Non-Elemental: Though some of his attacks involve wind.
  • Sissy Villain: A little, what with the Geek Physique and being a Dance Battler.
  • Smug Snake: Cygnus' plans come crumbling down when Geo reunites with Omega-Xis. He had a pretty damn strong showing until that point, though.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Not as bad as Gemini Spark, but still pretty bad. His first appearance has him attempting to murder people at the space station, manages to turn Geo against Mega, leads a full scale attack on the city, and nearly destroys the city with Andromeda.
  • Winged Humanoid: Cygnus Wing has a pair of wings sprouting from his back while maintaining a standard humanoid form of two arms, two legs, a torso, and a head.

Cancer (Bubble)

Host: Claude Pincer

In the games, Cancer is the FM-ian partnered with Claude Pincer, the friendless eight-year-old. Together they become Cancer Bubble, the Half Pint EM Human.

In the anime, Cancer is an incredibly expressive member of the FM-ian squad come to retrieve Omega-Xis. During the lull following the initial Andromeda Key incident, he becomes the de facto leader of the squad and constantly looks for new ways to refill the Andromeda Key. He shares with Crown a love of Idol Singer Misora.

  • Amusing Injuries: Whenever Harp Note is around. And when Harp Note and Luna are around, forget it.
  • Ascended Extra: In the anime. During the Filler arcs of the anime, Cancer is one of the more active FM-ians in trying to revive Andromeda, while in the Tribe anime, he's hired as Misora's personal attendant.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Of Misora's in the Tribe anime.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Rajione VI endows Cancer with the power to grow several stories tall, and his attacks are powered up accordingly; bizarrely, he remains the exact same weight.
  • Badass Adorable: When the anime allows him to be.
  • Badass Longcoat: He styles a trenchcoat and fedora early in the Tribe anime. And it's awesome.
  • Battle Boomerang: He can launch his pincers (each of which is the size of his head) like this. They double as a Precision-Guided Boomerang when he uses Boomerang Cutter.
  • Berserk Button: Cancer Bubble in his debut is driven into a frenzy while trying and failing to see Misora. At one point he manages to knock aside one of Harp Note's Pulse Song attacks (which, in the games, require shielding to avert).
  • Blood Knight: In the games, Cancer Bubble is definitely always up for a fight, and shares this with his host Claude.
  • Bodyguard Crush: On Misora in the anime.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Ever since Cancer Wave Changed with Claude in the anime, he's been decidedly less mature.
  • Bubble Gun: Loaded into his claws. "FLY, BUBBLE POP!"
  • Butt-Monkey:
    • Balancing out his Anime incarnation is this trope. In an early fight with Burai, he becomes a Twinkle In The Sky. Twice.
    • Geo shuts down his first ever tirade by shooting him in the face.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Both Bubble Pop and Tidal Wave prevent opponents from attacking. Luckily he has no Elec attacks.
  • Cosplay: Bizarrely, Cancer Bubble may be seen around town wearing his host's clothes over his Cancer Bubble body.
  • Cute Bruiser: In the games mostly. Not so much in the anime.
  • Demon Head: He has a particular talent for this.
  • Dramatic Irony:
    • For the briefest of moments during his premiere. Cancer hopes to find a powerful host, which seems to be the case when he espies a security guard evicting a little kid from sneaking into a Sonia Skye concert. Psyched, Cancer rushes to meet his host, and everyone who ever fought Cancer Bubble in the games knows what's coming next.
    • This trope punches him in the face when he's told Misora and Harp Note are one and the same.
  • Embarrassing Last Name: "Bubble" is not all that commanding a piece of nomenclature.
  • Easy Amnesia: Cancer Bubble gets smacked upside the head with a thrown wok from Luna. He gets better before the next episode.
  • Fan Boy: Misora's in the anime (he got it from his host). There's a huge amount of invoked irony in how he's constantly on the receiving end of Harp Note's attacks.
  • Fun Size: The youngest and shortest member of the cast in the anime and the most fun-loving.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: To himself when he catches himself weeping over his unsatisfactory host in the anime.
  • Giant Enemy Crab: Compared to normal earth crabs? Sure. Compared to anyone else? Not happening.
  • Hot-Blooded: As ironically as it may seem.
  • Keet: He's got energy to spare.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: The youngest character in the anime.
  • King Mook: In a sense; there's a strain of crab virus in the first game that share his bubble attack.
  • Large Ham: Especially in the anime, helped by his various facial expressions and No Indoor Voice.
  • Living Prop: In the games.
  • Lovable Coward: In Cepheus' presence.
  • Making a Splash: Literally, with his Signature Attack.
  • Ocular Gushers: When he breaks down in his premiere episode.
  • Odd Friendship: With Crown in the anime. They share a love of the Idol, Misora.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: So pintsized that sometimes the camera misses everything but the crown of his skull. But the power's there.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: OH, SO MUCH in the anime.
  • The Remnant: The one FM-ian left on Earth in the Tribe anime (well, the last of the loyalists).
  • Satellite Character: In the games; like Wolf and Crown, he exists more or less to help make Cancer Bubble.
  • Shipper on Deck: Played with. One arc in the anime has him selling the Mega Man/Harp Note pairing for all its worth... just to piss Luna off.
  • Super-Deformed: Cancer is both this and the smallest of the FM-ians. The animators have fun with this during his premiere episode by endowing him with a ludicrously over-the-top range of intense expressions and no dignity whatsoever.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: During the unmaking of Operation Iinchou's Unrequited Love, Cancer hurriedly tries to explain to Luna that he is not the one who's been spreading rumors that Rock Man and Harp Note are in love.
  • Twinkle In The Sky: The most of the FM-ians.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Misora-chi in Tribe.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Gemini's. But, then again, so's everyone.
  • Verbal Tic: The standard bubbly "-buku" gets inserted into a lot of his Japanese dialogue. In the English games, he makes claw-snapping sounds.

Libra (Balance/Scales)

Host: Mitch Shepar
"Let me offer you a choice."

  • The Berserker: Flame Libra in the anime is much more likely simply to attack than think things through.
  • Catchphrase: In the anime, he tends to say "Let me offer you a choice" before listing two options. He uses a variant of it in his game show: "Let me off you wretches a choice!" when dealing with male contestants and "Let me off you witch a choice!" when dealing with female contestants.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Both Playing with Fire and Making a Splash. He himself rates as Non-Elemental.
  • Cross Counter: Libra's split personalities do this to one another; Libra's human body punches itself in the face twice over.
  • Death from Above: Can drop a weight from the sky via his Heavy Weight attack.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: His Libra Swing attack consists of him trying to whack his opponents with the Flame and Aqua Weights.
  • Irony: Though he gave people a choice in his game show and consistently gives choices normally, he was given no such thing when he was fired and his show was canceled. Ophiuca lampshades it.
  • Non-Elemental: Though he uses fire and water attacks, he has no elemental traits.
  • Red Mage: Libra Balance is Non-Elemental, but he can use both Fire and Water attacks.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: With himself for a while after he develops a Split Personality. His Fire personality is aggressive and confrontational while his Water personality is calm and strategic.
  • Split Personality: In the anime, Libra once gets so stressed out that his habit of splitting everything into two choices backfires on him and he is accidentally rent into two half-Libras (each identified with the Aqua Weight and Flame Weight, respectively). He even correctly identifies it.
  • Split-Personality Merge: At the end of his second day in the limelight, his Aqua and Fire personalities come to terms with one another and merge back together. When he offers himself a choice after that, it is them same, and he says they're "in agreement".

Ophiuca/Ophiuchus (Queen)

Host: Luna Platz

  • Animal Motifs: Snakes. Her true EM form has scales on the more solid parts and her lower body trails off in coils. Her EM Human form is a lamia, complete with scales in the same area and a decidedly serpentine tail below her belt.
  • Bare Your Midriff: To go with the Belly Dancer motif. In her EM human form, she only wears the upper piece of the outfit and the belt, leaving her navel exposed for all to see.
  • Belly Dancer: Based off of one.
  • Berserk Button: In the anime, frivolity on a tight budget. Especially considering how much work *she* ends up doing to give them a budget at all. The button gets broken when she finds out Cancer stole her money to spend it all on a single bid to destroy Rock Man. Later while she's crying it all out, the others come by and try to apologize; they show her their appreciation and new commitment to frugality by mentioning that they bought a new piggy bank. All Ophiuchus hears is 'bought'.
  • Blood Knight: There are shades of it. When Lyra told Ophiuca in the anime about how Mega Man had defeated the others up until then, she seemed more interested than ever and established that she "would love to fight him."
  • Bullfight Boss: Her Quick Serpent attack charges her opponent's side of the field. In Battle Card form, it will also corrupt the rows beneath it.
  • Buxom Is Better: Is quite busty.
  • Chainmail Bikini: She has Super Armor, somehow (it might be explained as armored scales). This does not reoccur in the second game.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: In the anime, Ophiuca initially subjugates Luna, but Mega Man's presence is enough to pull out a chunk of Luna's personality... which leads us to a scene in which Queen Ophiuca becomes rather obsessive with Mega Man's attention, and Geo wonders if Omega-Xis has ever had any sort of relation to Ophiuca.
  • Cute Monster Girl: More like Sexy monster Girl, but similar principle given the number of fanservice tropes that apply. She does play this straight when Luna's personality overrides Ophiuca's, and her fangirlism makes her come off as endearingly awkward. Happens again when the EM comet comes by and turns her into The Ditz; her Third-Person Person speech and higher voice combines with her appearance to make her Adorkable.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's not afraid to give Mega Man a decent fight. She even looks forward to it, and she is decidedly on the side of the villains.
  • The Dark Chick: Of the FM-ians, she is the one who does the most to keep them from falling apart. She even works multiple jobs to ensure they have enough of a budget to not starve to death.
  • The Ditz: Under the influence of the meteor Rajione VI in the anime, she starts talking like a young third person child. She also says a lot of innuendo without giving much thought.
  • Dub Name Change: The English games rename her from Ophiuchus to Ophiuca, since the former is a masculine name while she's clearly female.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In the games, she only just begins to understand Gemini's intent to betray Cepheus, when she dies for her trouble.
  • Eye Beams: Her "Gorgon Eye" attack manifests as a pair of beams to are fired from her eyes.
  • Flunky Boss: Her Snake Legion attack unleashes a stream of snake viruses across the field. In the anime, she tends to throw them, instead.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: As Queen Ophiuca, to contrast with Harp Note. She is primarily purple in color, both in EM and EM Human form.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: From the hips up, her skin is a teal color.
  • Green Thumb: Like Wolf, more Nature- than Plant-themed.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: When Luna's fangirlism overrides Ophiuca's personality in the anime, Queen Ophiuca manages to wrap her tail around Mega Man and starts talking about her crush on him. She even expresses a desire to go to the edge of Andromeda with him "together."
  • Ms. Fanservice: The change from School Uniforms Are the New Black to the Belly Dancing Outfit has certain implications, Luna. Her Wave Comet-induced bout of ditziness causing her to occasionally spout sexual innuendos doesn't help.

  • Not So Above It All: Rarely, she gets swept away with her fellow's shenanigans in the anime.
  • Off-Model: How long Queen Ophiuca is from head to tail can vary between episodes of the anime. In one scene, it's only about as long as her main body. In another, it was long enough to completely wrap Mega Man.
  • Poisonous Person: Not in battle, though her Gorgon Eye attack will paralyze you. In battle with her, she has no posionous or HP Draining attacks. However, her Mega Card has her Quick Serpent attack leave poison panels in its wake. Also, she sics a snake on Sonia, putting her out of the fight.
  • Prehensile Tail: As Queen Ophiuca in the anime. Her first action after possessing Luna is to slam Geo with her tail, and she uses it again to ensnare Mega Man.
  • Psychotic Smirk: When she and the FM-ians raid Libra's game show.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In her normal form, her eyes are a constant shade of red through and through.
  • Scaled Up: When she Wave Changes with Luna, Luna becomes a lamia, complete with serpentine tail, scaly areas on her body, and command over snakes. Ophiuca retains this form when she gains the ability to Wave Change without needing a human host.
  • Snake Charmer: This is Ophiuca's motif, and accordingly she can control snakes. Her in-game model even has a flute, which is a known tool in snake charming.
  • Snake People: Queen Ophiuca has a relatively-humanoid torso, but everything below her "belt" is a thick snake tail, and she manages to have Cute Little Fangs and snakes as part of her head in addition to what seems to be a scaly helmet.
  • Snakes Are Sexy: Luna as Queen Ophiuca is wearing a Belly Dancing Outfit. And frankly only the top and belt. Look!
  • Third-Person Person: During her Rajione-induced Ditz moments, she spoke in third person whenever describing her current emotional state.
  • Undying Loyalty: To King Cepheus, with the necessary undertones of My Master, Right or Wrong.
  • Villainous Crush: Briefly in the anime when Luna's personality overrides Ophiuca's. She obsesses over Mega Man and makes attempts to embrace him, succeeding only once but long enough to express a desire to go to the edge of Andromeda together with him.
  • Walking Wasteland: It's implied Queen Ophiuca could be this, since her Mega Card has her Quick Serpent attack corrupt the field beneath it into poison panels. This is not established in the anime, nor is it seen out of battle in the games.

Wolf (Woods/Forest)

Host: Damian Wolfe

  • Adaptational Villainy: In the first game, he's a Bonus Boss and becomes a temporary ally in the third game. In the anime, he's one of the villains.
  • Alliterative Name: Wolf Woods.
  • Bash Brothers: With Taurus Fire in the anime, whenever they aren't bickering (which is often).
  • The Berserker: He's famous for this; whenever he sees the moon he becomes one.
  • Blood Knight: Described as the most ferocious of the FM-ians, so Gemini Spark enjoy the opportunity to mock him when they catch him sealed in Juurou's mind.
  • Bound and Gagged: When sealed inside Juurou's mind in the anime, Wolf is tethered by strings of light.
  • Day in the Limelight: He gets his own arc midway through the first season, with some much appreciated Character Development.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Mayu calls him "Ricky".
  • Flunky Boss: His Howling Wolf attack summons wolflike viruses to attack.
  • Green Thumb: Like Ophiuchus, more nature-themed than plant-themed.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Especially under a full moon.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Damian in the games.
  • Morality Pet: Inverted. He develops softer traits by masquerading as Mayu's pet in the anime.
  • Pet the Dog: He leaves behind one of his Howling Wolf viruses as a pet for Mayu in the anime.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are red and he's not someone to mess with.
  • Running Gag: Both of Wolf Woods' featured arcs have him destroy the EM Wave Telescope Geo is trying to win in a competition.
  • Satellite Character: In the games, though not as much as Cancer or Crown. He actually gets a smidgeon of dialogue.
  • Sword Beam: More like Claw Beam. His Wide Claw can function like this for ranged attacks.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: As Wolf Woods; in fact, he's so Top Heavy that according to the manual, he has spikes at the bottom of his feet that help anchor him to the ground.
  • Turns Red: The Wolf Woods battle in Star Force 1 has a unique element to it — when the background full moon comes out, Wolf Woods literally turns red, his claws lengthen, he moves faster, and he hits harder. And when the full moon hides again, he reverts to normal. So we have an interesting example of a 'pissy boss' mode on a timer.
  • Truly Single Parent: Maybe. He leaves Mayu with a small wolf cub for her D-Pet when he leaves her. It might be one of his Howling Wolf viruses, but it looks incredibly like him.
  • Worthy Opponent: He holds Omega-Xis in high esteem, enmity notwithstanding.

Gemini (Spark)

Host: Rey (Hikaru) and Pat Sprigs

  • Ambiguous Gender: Having Patrick as a host can do that to you.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the right hand of the FM King and the most powerful FM-ian.
  • Ambiguous Situation: In the anime. While he's brought back to life like the other FM-ians and is seemingly no longer an antagonist, it's unknown if he received the same amnesia treatment as Pat/Tsukasa.
  • Bash Brothers: Apparently, Spark White with Rock Man in the manga adaptaion.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Spark White in the manga.
  • Bishounen: Again, comes with having Pat as your host.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Spark Black has a few shades of this.
  • Bonus Boss: In the second game.
  • Cards of Power: Gemini Spark Black uses a Plasma Gun battle card at one point.
  • Cool Mask: Gemini in his natural form has two of them for faces. One black, one white. Just one mind, though.
  • Creepy Twins: As Gemini Spark.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Gemini Spark more or less completely outclasses Mega Man in their introductory arc in the anime. When they leave, they congratulate him for the one hit he managed to get in on them.
  • The Dragon: Second-in-command to High King Cepheus, and a traitorous bastard, to boot.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: With Cepheus being a paranoid wreck, Gemini is happy to step up and make sure the plans go smoothly.
  • Dual Boss: Gemini's EM Human form, Gemini Spark, consists of two individuals, one white, for his host, and one black, for himself. In the games, Black is actually Pat's murderous alter-ego, Rey. While subverted in the first game as only the black Spark needs to be defeated, the second game fully embraces this trope.
  • Dynamic Entry: Spark Black in the anime.
    Spark Black: Plasma Gun!
  • Emotion Control: Gemini Spark can manipulate the electrochemical reactions in human brains, thereby causing them to feel different emotions depending on their goals.
  • Evil Laugh: Spark Black does it more often, but White does it better.
  • Evil Redhead: Both of Gemini Spark.
  • Evil Twin: Spark Black is generally the "darker" of the two, if you'll excuse the pun.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Gemini is forcefully booted from his own plan by his host-controlled White half in the anime. Somehow, Spark White is able to keep his own form afterwards.
  • Evil Mentor: Gemini to his host. [[spoiler: It backfires rather spectacularly in the anime, as he is killed by Pat.
  • Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: They explain their ability to cause a Hate Plague.
  • Fantastic Racism: Spark White considers humans to be an inferior species in the anime.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He seems polite on the surface, but is really a manipulative Omnicidal Maniac who exploits his king's paranoia to destroy other planets. In the anime, he acts sympathetic to Cancer's desire to be recognized by the others in order to manipulate the latter.
  • Foil: G.S. Black is usually much louder and more aggressive than White, who can be anywhere from softspoken to reticent to downright solemn.
  • For the Evulz: As his motives for destroying Planet AM are never expanded on, they come off as this. Also 50% of his actions in the anime, barring those related to his ultimate goal, are this.
  • From Bad to Worse:
    • Gemini Spark consider this their job in the Anime. If Geo has a headache, Gemini Spark can help. Not.
    • Mega Man's fighting Crown Thunder on his ship? BOOM. The ship is now on a crash course with Echo Ridge's power plant.
    • Geo's tired from hustling around during a sports tournament? Here's a furious Wolf Woods to make your day better. Oh, and let's force his red form, too.
    • You thought you'd beaten Andromeda? Hahaha, no. He simply offs his black half and uses it to revive the weapon and make it stronger.
  • Gold Makes Everything Shiny: Gemini Spark's enhanced arms are both golden.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: Spark White's relationship with Mega Man is less enmity-based than Spark Black's.
  • Hate Plague: Gemini Spark can alter electrochemical reactions in human brains, which allows the former to exacerbate human emotional states. In the games, they do this to cause outbreaks of violence and destroy Brother Bands. In the anime, this is Black's ability, whereas White can cause violent spells of euphoria (traffic accident-inducing euphoria).
  • The Heavy: It was his manipulation of the paranoid FM king that led to the destruction of Planet AM.
  • Hero Killer: A legitimate threat in all appearances. Even right before they were finally defeated in head-to-head combat, Gemini Spark managed to break Harp Note's ankle, which is the most lasting damage either she or Rock Man has taken during the entire run of the anime.
  • Humans Are Bastards: Gemini Spark seek to point out and exploit this in the games.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Gemini Spark use their Elec Swords by stabbing his targets, often trying to impale them. This is how he kills Taurus and Crown.
  • Irony: In the anime, Gemini, the master manipulator who betrayed the FM King and his fellow FM-ians, is betrayed by his own host as Spark White (Pat) kills Spark Black (Gemini himself) to fully revive Andromeda.
  • It Amused Me: Almost everything Gemini Spark does not immediately connected to their ultimate goal is done for shits and giggles.
  • Kill One, Others Get Stronger: Both individual Sparks need to coordinate to perform their ultimate attack, Gemini Thunder. In the second game where each has their own health bar, defeating one of them leaves the other unable to use Gemini Thunder but compensates by giving his other attacks a wider range.
  • Knight of Cerebus: In both the games and anime. In the games, his chapter causes the game to take a darker turn. In the anime, One he starts murdering the FM-ians for their negative energy, the happy moments come to a halt.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Pun very much intended. He is no slouch in combat, effortlessly dodging Mega Man's attacks while dishing out tremendous damage in turn. And when Mega Man finally gets a successful blow? It does Scratch Damage, not even leaving any meaningful wounds.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He manipulated the FM King into destroying Planet AM.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Everything in the first game's plot can be traced to Gemini someway or another.
  • Mask Power: Gemini's natural form has little to no definition beyond a pair of Black and White masks.
  • More Than Mind Control: Gemini is quite happy to brag about his willing host.
  • Mythology Gag: One of their attacks is Elec Sword, named exactly like the Battle Chip from the Battle Network series. (Star Force equivalents have other names, like "Strike Edge").
  • No-Sell: Gemini White cannot be hurt by anything in the first game, for reasons of drama. In the anime, he can't be hurt either, though this is explained by him having embraced Gemini's power, which taps him into abilities Geo can barely imagine.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Gemini White is the solemn one.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Gemini Black is the manic one.
  • Psycho Electro: The most psychopathic of the lot with the power to control electricity.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In his normal form.
  • Rocket Punch: Er, Rocket Knuckle.
  • Say My Name: Usually on the receiving end from Rock Man in the anime.
    Gemini Spark!!
  • Shadow Archetype: Spark White, Gemini's host, to Geo.
  • Shock and Awe: His element is electricity, and his most powerful moves involve lightning.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Toward the end of the first season, he systematically murders his fellow FM-ians one by one, starting with Taurus, then Wolf, then Ophiuca, then Libra, and finally Crown. He would've killed Cancer, but he escaped.
  • The Sociopath: In contrast to the other FM-ians, who are Just Following Orders, Gemini is a manipulative, murderous turncoat who holds loyalty to no one other than himself.
  • Tag Team Twins: As Gemini Spark.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In the finale of the Tribe anime he is brought back to life by the FM King and is allowed to witness Sonja's concert with everyone else. In Starforce 2, he only remains as data that Pat can use so EM Wave Change.
  • The Starscream: Hinted at in the games, explicitly stated in the anime, where he and Pat attempt to use Andromeda to overthrow the FM King.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Gemini Thunder is basically a flood of lightning.
  • Treacherous Advisor: In the backstory, he tricked the FM King into destroying Planet AM by taking advantage of his paranoia.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: The final arc of the first season of the anime has them unambiguously murdering the other FM-ians and attempting to destroy the planet Also, Gemini is portrayed as far more sociopathic and evil than the other FM-ians, who are Punch Clock Villains at best.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind:
    • The first game mixes up the Boss Rush by having Gemini Spark come back for his rematch early. However, he doesn't get upgraded to his EX form like the others (to avoid trivializing the rest by starting with the toughest fight), meaning he's exactly the same as the first time you beat him.
    • Near the end of the first season, Rock Man finally gets payback on Gemini Spark with the Star Force.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Gemini Thunder is of the Lightning Gun variety. Shield up, NOW.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: It's amazing, the results you can achieve with a well-aimed Gemini Thunder.
  • Wild Card: In the anime.

Crown (Thunder)

Host: Couronne the XIV

  • Achilles' Heel: In the anime, fusing with Couronne's corpse left him bound to the ship he died on. Mega Man and Harp Note exploit this by attacking the ship itself, weakening him enough to finish him off. This weakness is nullified when he gains the ability to turn into his Wave Changed form at will.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the games, he's a simple Bonus Boss, in the anime, he's one of the villains.
  • Antiquated Linguistics: Speaks like this in the games, thanks to his host.
  • The Archer: Ikaku Bowgun will pierce invisibility.
  • Ascended Extra: Couronne becomes his Satellite Character in the anime.
  • Badass Cape: To go with his overall regal design.

  • Blade on a Stick: Totsugeki Lance will break shields.
  • Blood Knight: His host has been itching for a fight for 500 years.
  • Bonus Boss: In the first game. Fought at the City Dump.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Three of his four attacks (the flunky ones) are designed to waste any given shield. The fourth slows you down. They all hurt. And they don't stop.
  • Drop the Hammer: Hajou Hammer disperses auras and barriers.

  • Cool Crown: Everything south of the Rubber Duck bit.
  • Cool Sword: Uses one in the anime.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: You might be forgiven for underestimating Crown when you see the rubber duck atop his, er, crown.
  • Dance Battler: His fighting doesn't particularly involving dancing proper, but in battle, he'll groove away in the background, maybe do a spin.
  • Dem Bones: Crown Thunder is really little more than a skeleton. Okay, a skeleton with lightning powers.
  • Dirty Coward: In the anime, Crown is accused of this, though he still goes into battle with enough relish. He prefers a great deal more trickery, mind you.
  • Flunky Boss: Unlike other FM-ians, who each have just one attack where they use their flunkies to rush the field, Crown Thunder uses these to form a major part of his strategy. Three of his four attacks are delegated to minions that utilizes a different shield-breaking technique.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Go read Couronne XIV's section for all the bizzare details.
  • Immortality Immorality: In the anime.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Couronne.
  • Living Prop: In the games.
  • Loophole Abuse: Crown Thunder in the anime is an earthbound spirit, so he's stuck to the land where his host died. Luckily for him, Jean died on a ship. See where this is going? Of course, nobody's entirely sure why he needed to involve the creation of an amusement park on that ship.
    Rock Man: That makes no sense!
  • Nigh Invulnerable: In the anime, fusing with Couronne's corpse makes him invulnerable to attacks. Geo and Sonia eventually bypass this by attacking the ship itself.
  • Satellite Character: In the games, Crown really has no role except to be part of Crown Thunder. The character, by and large, is Couronne the XIV. This is remedied in the anime, where we only deal with Crown himself (what with Jean being stuck in his skull at the bottom of the ocean).
  • Shock and Awe: His fourth attack, Fall Thunder, involves dropping a spread of paralyzing lightning bolts at you. If this attack hits you, say goodbye to 500 HP as he immediately follows this up with hitting you with his other attacks at the same time.
  • Smart People Play Chess: According to concept art.

High King Cepheus
Well done... Mega Man, Omega-Xis. So the enemy who appears before me is 1 of my own warriors. Who would have thought it...? So this is what is meant by "biting the hand that feeds you." No AM-ian warrior was able to reach me, however, 1 of my own was. I do commend you.

The leader of the FM-ians and one of the major forces behind the conflict of the first game.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His "skin" is entirely green.
  • Anti-Villain: While his actions can be viewed as pretty atrocious, they're are motivated and explained by a paranoid fear caused by constant attempts at Cepheus' life, and Gemini's manipulations.
  • Badass Cape: To go with his regal attire.
  • Big Bad: Of the first game and season of the anime.
  • Cool Crown: He is a king, after all.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Ever since he was young, people were out to kill him and take his throne. Gemini's manipulations only worsened his paranoia.
  • Distressed Dude: In the third game, he requests Geo's help in saving Planet FM from Sirius.
  • Easily Forgiven: To his complete and utter astonishment. Justified in that Geo managed to destroy Andromeda and stop any serious damage to Earth and that in the end, he is a sad wreck that wants genuine bonds.
  • Freudian Excuse: The constant attempts on his life, and Gemini's manipulations caused him to become paranoid and mistrusting.
  • The Ghost: Cepheus doesn't make a formal appearance in the anime — the most we see of him is a light in the distance.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Geo saving his life and offering forgiveness is what makes him change his ways.
  • I Owe You My Life: Geo saving his life triggers his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Does this to Pat in the anime.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Not once does he arise until the very end.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A bit more magenta than usual, but the trope is played straight. At least until the end of the first game, where it's subverted.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He's largely a background presence until the final arc of the game.
  • Save the Villain: Geo saves him from a malfunctioning Andromeda.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In the third game. Making a genuine friend will do that to you.
  • The Unfought: He's never fought in Starforce 1, as he commands Andromeda to attack in his stead.

First form
Final form

The ultimate weapon of the FM-ians, employed by Cepheus to lay waste to entire worlds.


How well does it match the trope?
