- "Goyoda, goyoda, goyoda!"
- —Bob Copper's catchphrase in Japanese.
Bob Copper, known as Goyoda Heiji (五陽田 ヘイジ?) in Japan, is a character from the Mega Man Star Force series. He is an officer from the Satella Police and has an antenna on his head which functions as a siren. He tries to solve anomalies involving Z-waves.
Mega Man Star Force
Bob appears in the first game questioning Geo about the Z-waves near his house, and again while he and Omega-Xis are in the Wave World. While in the Wave World, they take control of a baseball machine and uses it to knock him out cold, breeding his dislike of baseballs. While unconscious Geo and Omega-Xis access his Transer, which revealed that he views Geo as a suspect. Fearing that Bob is coming too close to discovering Mega Man's identity, they delete all of his evidence and research. Bob later appears at Echo Ridge Elementary, where, despite having the information on his Transer deleted by Omega-Xis, suspects Geo even further.
Mega Man Star Force 2
Bob also appears in the second game, this time only investigating unusual EM waves across the world prior to the UMAs' attacks. He is also involved in a couple of side-quests throughout the game - one where he arrests Rich Dotcom, and arrests another criminal in his own personal side-quest.
Although not involved in the main plot, he can be found in Alohaha's beach area, where he had just found out that Geo Stelar was Mega Man the whole time. His wizard says he solves his investigations quickly, giving his wizard little work to do.
In the anime, Bob is dedicated to finding out who Mega Man (and to some degree, Harp Note as well) is, chasing him obsessively. However, Bob comes to rely on Mega Man later, as he is unable to fight FM-ians on his own.
In the Japanese ver, while in pursuit of EM viruses, he will usually yell "Goyoda, Goyoda, Goyoda!"
He is first seen demonstrating a new tool invented by Tom Dubius, which appears to be a rifle that can use a Star Carrier as a scope. Near the end of the series, he is sucked into the Mu Continent, and there he places Dr. Vega under arrest after Mega Man destroys Hollow. However, Vega escapes into the temple and Bob is pulled out of Mu to Earth as Le Mu regains its former strength.
- Bob is often subject to comedic scenes throughout the series in both the anime and games, where he often finding himself in a humorous situation when he tries to arrest someone.
- Gilbert D. Stern from Archie's Mega Man comic series shares some visual similarities to Bob. Both also bear a similar look and color scheme to detective Dick Gumshoe from the Ace Attorney series.
