a blue robot created by the scientist known as Dr. Light. Mega Man fights the evil robot masters sent by Dr. Wily. With each robot master defeated, Mega Man gains a new weapon. Each boss has a weakness towards a certain weapon. There are usually 8 robot masters per game (except MM1, where there was 6).

Mega Man has two siblings. Protoman, his darker sibling, is lonely, and mysterious, and sometimes is framed by Wily as an evil robot. His other sibling is Roll, but for some odd reason, the creators of Capcom decided to make Roll as Mega Man's love interest which is really disturbing since they are siblings...but who cares, robots can do anything.

Mega Man has 8 games in the original series, MM1-6 on the NES, MM7 on the SNES, and MM8 on the PS1. Recently, all 8 games plus 2 Mega Man arcade games were released in the Mega Man Anniversary Collection.

Mega Man also has an anime that aired long time ago.

The name of a popular video game series developed by the company called Capcom, and the main character after whom the game is named. Originally started by Capcom, the game's main character is a small, blue robot boy weilding an energy gun on either hand. (Though he is only known to use one hand at any given time.) Originally, this character started out as a lab assistant built by a man named Dr. Light, but after an evil Scientst named Dr. Wily attempted to conquer the world with six Robot Masters, Rock volunteered to be transformed into a fighting machine to save the world. The MegaMan series has grown into an impressively large collection of games, several spin-off series, and many, many side games.

It's also important to note that the MegaMan series started in Japan under the name "RockMan". It was later dubbed into "MegaMan" When it was translated, and brought to other nations, especially the United States.

An extremely popular side scrolling action game developed by the company Capcom (CAPsule COMputer is the official name). This game featured a boy named Rock (in Japan, the game is titled RockMan) dressed in a blue suit and helmet who fires plasma bullets at various robotic fiends. Rock eventually earned the title Megaman (or RockMan, for Japanese gamers). The ultimate goal of Megaman is to crush the evil forces of Dr. Albert Wily and his evil robot masters. A special feature of Megaman is to steal his opponent's weapon after defeating them in battle. This game has a large number of games and spin-offs based on this game.
After destroying Quick Man, Megaman absorbed his energy and created the Quick Boomerang.
