should we add a page for fanworks? i found that there are a lot of fan games and webcomics pages of megaman in general.
If they have pages here, you can list them on FanWorks.Mega Man.
For the Mega Man Villains Character Page, should I add Mega Man Shadow's tropes under Quint's character tropes, since they are the same person, or under his own section? Also, for Robot Masters that are not in the "main line" games, should they go on this page or the Robot Masters page? If the latter, I will move the Stardroids and the Dimensions to the Robot Masters page.
Does Mighty No. 9 really deserve mention here since it's not a Mega Man game?
Games that are virtually similar to one another in concept get a mention on other pages all the time on this wiki, usually as a "Compare With". Especially if the games involve the same director/development team or were inspired by one another in some fashion.
Considering that most fans of Mega Man feel that Mighty No. 9 is probably as close to a new game for the Mega Man franchise as they're going to get, and that Inafune is helming the project after leaving Capcom, people are of course going to link them to each other, even if the similarities end up being superficial.
The only thing that's keeping Mighty No. 9 from actually being a Mega Man game is that the protagonist isn't called Mega Man. It's intended, pretty explicitly, to be as close to a Mega Man game as is possible.
A Spiritual Successor by much of the same staff, explicitly inspired both in terms of appearance and game design?
I think it warrants a mention.
How can it be a successor if the franchise it's 'succeeding' isn't over?
"Successor" in the case of this trope just means "sequel." There are many examples of a Spiritual Successor that were necessitated because another company retained the rights to a work, thus the series was ongoing, while the creative staff went off to do its own thing.
Aah, okay ^^
Should we move this page to Franchise.Mega Man?
If this is supposed to be a page for the franchise as a whole, shouldn't the tropes on this page be limited to underlying themes and recurring elements within the series, with specific (single game or single series) examples being relegated to the respective pages?
Can't argue with that. But for me, I only got my start reading the comics, and I've yet to buy a single game (which I should). Someone more qualified willing to step up?
I want to add these to Five Bad Band page... Are these really an example?
Mega Man Zero: Copy X and the Four Guardians (although the latter aren't exactly "villains")
Mega Man Zero 3:
Mega Man ZX Advent:
Nothing's wrong with the latter two; not sure about the first one. Still, I concur, you should add them.

How well does it match the trope?
