I haven't talked about Mega Man in... wow! A very long time! Today Theorists, we are going to remedy that! When I think of Mega Man, I tend to think of the amazing gameplay rather than any deep, overarching story. That was an oversight on my part as the lore within the Mega Man universe is CRAZY! Did you know that Mega Man will bring about the end of all human life? No? Well put on your helmets, we're digging deep into this franchise!

I've played like every Mega Man game and I never really thought about the plot as a whole until now. Mind blown!

Algorithms don't equal views. This video has more views than nearly all videos after it so far as of writing this. People want to see theories of old games too ya know! That's why many of us loved this channel, for the Mario's, and Zelda's not the fnafs those were kids.

You cant just choose the parts of a design document that fits your theory and dismiss the ones that wont, your theory is incorrect not the devs. Sloppy work.

But aren't Carbons technically a continuation of humanity? I mean, only pure humans would be extinct. But humanity itself would live on through Carbons.

Matt, gotta throw your theory a curveball here. Carbons are... NOT Humans at all. In Megaman Legends, Carbons are treated as a sort of genetic cattle. They are Humanoids, but as far as we know, NOT human because Juno says their population needs to be controlled, lest they go rampant. In addition, Sera mentions she intends to reset the Carbons population, but the program's intended specifics are a little vague. Another point is that when MML was released, megaman ZX was not a thing. So, whilst its good on paper, there is NO way to link ZX to Legends. IE, no biometals either. Although thats a separate point entirely, since in ZXA, Albert says only those who bear Albert's DNA can megamerge. Qualms aside, it's good SOMEONE out there remembers our beloved blue bomber enough for a YT video. Thanks

No one will watch this video! - FF to August 9th, 2020: 2,648,529 views. To compare, the two most recent videos for TLOU2, "Ellie Is NOT Immune!" & "Joel's Choice Meant Nothing!" have 1,749,862 views & 2,381,513. Mega Man beat them both. The moral is, not everything about 2020 is bad. ;)

Awesome theory! This makes me wonder though... in Mega man x Dr Cain excavates X in Dr. Light’s old abandoned lab. However that lab was in mega city. What happened to mega city? Did it all get buried? Did crud blow up? Though that is an interesting thought, here’s another one. In Dr. Cain’s journal, he says that X is a quantum leap ahead of the technology that the world uses today. The thing is... X is 100 years old. Not to mention, Dr. Light made high-end thinking and free will robots 100 years ago. And yet all this time humans have just been using robots to do tasks and... wait... Wily in his academy days... OMG! It seems that Wily’s plan of having robots be both extra speedy and strong while being under the control and order of humans actually ended up winning in favor of Dr. Light’s plan for the last 100 years. Dang Wily.

The only wrinkle in this is that he never mentions the one original content in the Gameboy Mega Man series--Mega Man V, with the Stardroids. Where he manipulates alien robots.
rdh288 Hace 3 días
Yeah, this is pretty much cannon. Although it was the evil energy, not robotenza that became the maverick virus and there's no implication that it contained Wiley's consciousness.

@rdh288 thanks for the read most people I find saying evil energy is the maverick virus only use dookieshed as a source and make up excuses.
rdh288 Hace 3 días
@???????? ???????? It's from the (sounds crazy, I know) timeline of the Mega Man universe on the Japanese website for the Mega Man Zero Collection. A virus made reploids go maverick before X was created. From a separate source, X was created in response to events in Mega Man 8, and was started before the Power Fighters, which probably is set before Mega Man 10. Of course, that promo website is gone now, so who knows how cannon it was. It's transcribed at

And there was actually no implication that evil energy is the maverick virus and it think that can't be the case because duo said himself he destroyed all the evil energy on earth.

I understand it doesn’t deal with the theory that much, but zx is my favorite set of games so seeing it touched on so briefly upsets me a little.
walkingmadness Hace 6 días
the real question is did wily do more stuff before he was found in x2 because the enemy called serges was implied to be wily uploaded into what may potentially be an artificial body he made himself, though the wiki(checked it because I had trouble remembering serges' name) implied that wily may have indeed used the virus to transfer his consciousness or atleast aspects of it into robots/reploids

9:45, I'd like to suggest you check out "reploid revo", that channel covers this in great depth and explains why Zero turns good using that same design document
