  • Calling Your Attacks: BURRRRAITO BIIMU!
  • Canon Foreigner: His operator was never seen in the games, but Stream introduces a minor criminal who needs to give 100 cars to a mob boss to save his girlfriend and is given Asteroid Bright Man by Slur.

A WWW Navi guarding the way to the Life Virus in Network Transmission. Appears as a Darkloid in the anime's Axess season and returns as an Asteroid Navi working for a ninja.

  • Animate Inanimate Object: He's three swords working together.
  • Ascended Extra: Downplayed. Only the red sword talks via the picture on the dialogue box. The yellow and blue swords are just there and used for an attack. In the anime, they can also talk and occasionally swap out with the red sword to control their body.
  • BFS: All three swords are massive.
  • Multiple Head Case: Each of his swords are capable of talking and thought.
  • Shockwave Stomp: His Sword Press attack is basically this.

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

  • Colony Drop: He tries this in Stream when he misunderstands his operator's desire to create shooting stars by summoning an asteroid to wipe out Japan, or at least Den Tech City.
  • Dub Name Change: Axess' English dub changed his name to NovaMan.
  • Light Is Not Good: He's a brightly colored navi who's primarily white and yellow, has star themed attacks and his emblem is a five pointed star which are supposed to symbolize luck. Despite all this, he works for the professor in Network Transmission selling the fake vaccine and is both a Darkloid and Asteroid Navi in the anime.
  • Star Power: Its in his name after all. He drops star shaped meteors as an attack.

A WWW Navi in Network Transmission. Appears in the anime as a Darkloid and Asteroid Navi.

A virus/Navi hybrid of sorts in the Network Transmission game.

  • Affably Evil: He is polite towards Megaman, but Zero does not intend to end the Zero virus plague caused by his existence without a fight.
  • Badass Baritone/Evil Sounds Deep
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Despite him being canonically okay in the end, he just disappears in the future games without much explanation.
  • Expy: Of Zero from the Mega Man X series, of course - one of the few characters to be a reference to it along with Colonel and Iris.
  • Face Death with Dignity: He holds nothing against Megaman for coming to delete him and, after being defeated, is quite accepting of deletion. Thankfully, if you have the MystData, there's no need for him to die.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: He is a virus. Not an infected Navi, a full-blown computer virus that gained a soul. Even he's not sure how that happened, and he's not too pleased about the problems he causes just by existing.
  • Heel–Face Turn: If you manage to find the MystData before you face him for the final time, Lan's dad will figure out how to turn Zero into a Navi. He also leads the authorities right to the Professor's location in the finale, turning the Bittersweet Ending into a happy one.
  • Irony: The digital version of Zero looks more robotic than the reploid original. This is done to distinguish him from ProtoMan, who is already a Zero expy.
  • Large and in Charge: The largest humanoid Navi in the game, he's easily four times the size of MegaMan. You'd be forgiven for thinking he's the Big Bad before he starts talking.
  • Laser Blade: Of course.
  • Paradox Person: He's a NetNavi, all right, but he's purely viral in nature.
  • Rapunzel Hair: What doubles as a cape.
  • Tragic Monster: "I didn't ask to be born a virus."
  • Typhoid Mary: Just like his original counterpart, he spreads the Zero Virus just by existing.
  • Whole Plot Reference: His story is nigh-on identical to that of the actual Zero: Created by Wily, spread a dangerous virus, fought someone intended to hunt him down, had a Heel–Face Turn, proves pivotal to the defeat of the Big Bad.

Wily's unseen assistant from the first game. With Wily presumed dead at the time, he takes over Wily's goal of destroying Net Society by recreating the Life Virus and starting the war Wily wanted.

    Phantom/Legend of Network 
Characters from the Mobile Phone Gaiden Games Phantom of Network and Legend of Network.

A NetNavi that manages the Cache Server, where all of the world's cache data is accumulated.

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

He commands another Atlampian survivor named Sherrice to retrieve the codes and program to revive the Trojan Horse. He is eventually defeated by Lan and MegaMan.EXE who had help from a mysterious person called "L.o.N.". The destruction of the Trojan Horse destroyed the server of the Atlampian Ruins, releasing electromagnetic waves and opened a hole in time and space which sent him back 3000 years into the past, some time after the fall of the Atlampian Civilization. There he saw that the Atlampian people survived despite that their society fell; this revelation made him have a change of heart. He then made messages to help Lan in the future to stop himself in that era, signing them as "L.o.N."note

Indeed, a comparison of both girls suggests a deliberate zigzag unto Red Oni, Blue Oni levelsnote , suggesting some level of cross-contamination in development.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Originally worked with Nobody to find the three goddesses codes (Code Aphrodite, Code Hera and Code Athena) to reform the Golden Apple program to revive the Trojan Horse. She infiltrated SciLab by posing as an Official NetBattler from Netopia, teaming and living with Lan and the Hikari family. Overtime she came to care for them and Lan's friends.

  • Mega Twin Tails/Rapunzel Hair: Has her long blonde hair up like this.
  • The Mole: Pretends to be an Official NetBattler from Netopia to infiltrate SciLab.
  • Otaku: Of Period Pieces. The reason RideMan.EXE is modeled after a cowboy is that she likes Westerns.
  • Parental Abandonment: Considering that Sherrice was in cold sleep for 3000 years, her mother has long since been dead.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: She has blonde hair with blue eyes and is from Netopia, the series' equivalent of the Americas and Europe.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Chronologically, she is over 3000 years old but because she was put in cold sleep she is physically the same age as Lan.
  • Teen Genius: She, with Dr. Yuichiro Hikari, created the Trans Arm system. Although considering that she came from an advanced ancient civilization from 3000 years-ago, her intelligence could actually be the norm in that era.

    Anime-only characters 


Voiced by: Akeno Watanabe (JP)

An anime-only character, Slur is a servant of Duo, although she has a few agendas of her own regarding humankind.

  • Ambiguous Gender: While fansubs use female pronouns for the character, Slur's appearance and voice are androgynous, and there's no concrete reference to "her" gender in the Japanese version, or English official materials for that matter. It's possible that Slur was intended to be a genderless being like Serenade.
  • Asshole Victim: After causing so much trouble for the heroes throughout Stream and actively trying to convince Duo that Earth should be destroyed, nobody is fazed when Bass runs his arm through her torso.

  • No-Sell: To EVERYTHING. Even getting hit with three Program Advances at once didn't phase her.
  • Not So Invincible After All: After being featured prominently easily defeating anybody who tried to fight her Stream's finale has Bass taking sweet revenge on her for an earlier defeat.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: Despite claiming to defend the universe, her selfish motivations boil down to culling anything and everything she deems inferior.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Slur has red pupils and is one of the most destructive and vicious Navis in the anime.
  • Shock and Awe: Some of her attacks are electricity-based.
  • The Sociopath: As bad as Duo was, she's even worse, having some standards he has regarding fair play when judging a planet, she has none if she had her way she's destroy the Earth herself.
  • Treacherous Advisor: She is unconditionally loyal to Duo, but she's actively trying to sway him into deciding that humans are not worthy to live.

  • Green Thumb: Is given Asteroid PlantMan by Slur.
  • Irony: Went from hating vegetables to happily eating them.
  • Karma Houdini: One of the few Asteroid Navi operators not to get in trouble. Justified since he's a kid and PlantMan's fault for taking things too far. Granted, given how Chaud was restraining Lan, its possible he was planning on getting physical.

  • Everything's Better with Samurai: Subverted when its an arrogant and bloodthirsty alien samurai.

Voiced by Noriko Shitaya (JP)

This young and childish Navi only appears in the anime. Trill is known as the Synchronizer, and has taken an immense liking to Mega Man for protecting him and Iris against the worshipers of Falzar and Gregar. Eventually Trill allows Mega Man to gain the ability to Beast-Out, thus gaining the powers of either of the two beasts, but Mega Man loses control and attacks anything in sight if Iris is not there as well.

  • Badass Adorable: He has the ability to turn Mega Man into his beast forms from Battle Network 6 and collects Beastized viruses like toys.
  • Cheerful Child: Trill often gets excited very easily. He is this whenever he sees Mega Man in front of him, and he even runs up to Mega Man and hugs him.

Alternative Title(s): Mega Man NT Warrior
