Comic Book / Dreamwave's Mega Man

Go To

Mega Man is a short-lived comic book from Dreamwave Productions. It follows the exploits of Rocky as he goes to school, and fights robots as Mega Man. Along the way, he meets some friends, including Alan, and Chelsea, who would become his Love Interest.

Not to be confused with the Archie Comics series or the Brazilian comic Novas Aventuras De Megaman, and you would not want to confuse this with the Manga, Mega Man Megamix.


This series provides examples of:

  • Alternate Continuity: From the games and other adaptations.
  • Animesque: Even ignoring that Dreamwave tried to go for this, there's still the source material, so no surprise here.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Mega Man and Proto Man vs Multi Man.
  • Bank Robbery: Express Man is even carrying a bag with a dollar sign on it.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The sound system robot DJ Jazzy J4-8950 at the school dance.
  • Canon Foreigner: Chelsea, Alan, The Boltz brothers, and even some of the Robot Masters, to name a few.
  • Cut Short: Issue 4 ends on a cliffhanger that was supposed to lead into a Mega Man X comic. Dreamwave going out of business means it never came to be, and it's highly unlikely a continuation of any sort will come into existence.
  • Flying Car: Yet it seems this doesn't prevent traffic jams any more than normal ones.

  • High School A.U.: Or in this case, Junior High School AU. It is also a Canon example, due to being approved by Capcom.
  • Humongous Mecha: The fan-named "Steel Devil" that Wily deploys in the fourth and final issue. It's arguably bigger than Gamma.
  • Kidnapped Scientist: Dr. Light in the most literal sense. Wily doesn't want Light to work for him, he just wants to gloat.
  • Left Hanging: Per franchise tradition. This was a result of Dreamwave going out of business.
  • Love Interest: Chelsea to Rocky.
  • In Name Only: Not as bad as other examples but still applies. Hell, more than half of the cast are completely made up characters.
  • Me's a Crowd: Multi Man.
  • Musical Assassin: DJ Jazzy J4-8950 after going crazy.
  • Odd Name Out: DJ Jazzy J4-8950 is clearly a Robot Master style opponent, but he doesn't have the traditional naming convention of the franchise.

  • Spell My Name with an "S": Dr. Wily's name is spelled as Dr. Wiley here.
  • The Unfought: Heat Man causes an airplane crash and kidnaps Dr. Light. Mega Man never even sees him.

How well does it match the trope?
