Mega Man, known as Rockman (ロックマン Rokkuman) is the common protagonist of the Classic Mega Man series. In 1996 when Mega Man 8 came out, he was somewhat butchered.

Why He Sucked

  1. First off, he's extremely out-of-character in this game. Compared to the other games where he's a friendly robot with a brave and noble attitude, Mega Man has become a cowardly crybaby in this game.
  2. He overreacts about fighting people a lot, even though he fought in the past seven games.
  3. He also mistakes Bass as a friend when he's clearly a villain.
  4. His English voice is very grating.
  5. His infamous scream is also very annoying, and you have to listen to believe what we're talking about.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. To be fair, Mega Man is a likable protagonist in MM1-MM7, and he finally redeems himself in MM9-MM11.
  2. He did redeem himself and get better later on in the game.
  3. He still has his kindhearted demeanor as usual.
  4. Ai Orikasa does a great job voicing him.
  5. At least he didn't cause Mega Man 8 to be a bad game, the game was still good despite his flanderization anyway.
