Mega Man was the second robot created by Dr. Light. He was originally named Rock, but when Dr. Light modified him slightly to enable him to take on Dr. Wily the first time, he renamed him Mega Man. An accident in the lab turned him into a living machine, granting him the ability to think and feel emotions in the same way as a human being.
A skilled and experienced warrior, Mega Man fights with dual built-in arm cannons, and his Weapon Copy system allows him to emulate weapons used by certain opponents after defeating them. When not in battle, Mega Man often spends time at his creator’s laboratory and home, dressed in street clothes and looking very much like a human boy.
Mega Man’s personality is a mix of cheerful happiness and fierce determination. He holds human life in high regard, and although the fact that he is not a human can sometimes cause him to take his own existence casually, he does feel it is his duty to defend and save humans whenever possible.
