List of minor characters from the Mega Man game series.
Original Mega Man series
Evil Robot (悪のロボット Aku no robotto?) is the robot Duo was fighting with in the beginning of Mega Man 8. He was destroyed by Duo in a battle which resulted in the two robots crashing to Earth. Duo managed to damage him to the point where his body went completely inert, but the evil robot did enough damage to Duo where neither one could slow down to avoid burning up upon reaching Earth. Though the Evil Robot was destroyed, the Evil Energy it harnessed lived on, which is what Duo spent the remainder of the game trying to destroy. Some fans refer to him as "Oud", due to his appearing almost identical to Duo's original form, albeit mirrored (opposite giant hands to Duo) and with a more "evil" looking armor and color-scheme. His head is also different, with slots under his eyes rather than Duo's T-Visor. Some fans also refer to the evil energy robot as Duo, believing it and Duo to be two halves of a robot, but Capcom hasn't approved of this theory. The robot is an untouched character in terms of backstory, but important nonetheless.
Mega Man 2 robot
In promotional art for the Mega Man 2 boss character contest, Dr. Wily appears tinkering an unnamed yellow robot that never appeared in a game. Several years later the robot was used briefly in a flashback from the manga Mega Man Gigamix volume 2, where Dr. Light and Dr. Wily built him together when they were young.
Mega Man 8 robots
When Duo was helping Mega Man in the ending of Mega Man 8, four images of Mega Man's memories are shown, three of them having him dealing with unknown robots. The first scene shows Mega Man fighting against three red flying robots that can attack with electricity, in the second he saves a dog, in the third he stops a robbery, and in the last he saves two kids from a big robot with treads and hammer arms.
Newscasters were seen in Mega Man's Soccer and Mega Man 9. The newscaster from Mega Man's Soccer is a blond man with glasses, and the one from Mega Man 9 is a woman that resembles Chun-Li from the Street Fighter series. She also appears in the story "For Whose Sake?" of the Mega Man Megamix manga.
People from the United Nations seen in Super Adventure Rockman.
Mega Man X series
A group of Reploid criminals that appeared (dead) in Chapter 3, of the Maverick Hunter X OVA, The Day of Σ. They were supposedly hired by Sigma to hack industrial Mechaniloids stationed around Abel City, causing them to rampage. He later executes them to keep them quiet about his involvement in the events.
In the image to the right, the pair on the left are simply referred to as mass-produced criminals, one of them being named Mannequin Seawater. The short, stocky yellow Reploid is identified as the criminal leader and the skeleton themed Reploid to the right of him is called "bone" (骨?).
Gamma's unit (pronounced as Garma's unit) is a unit of Maverick Hunters that was mentioned by Sigma in Zero's past in Mega Man X4. Zero killed all members of the Gamma unit, and Sigma had to fight against him. It's believed that the Reploids seen destroyed in Zero's dream in the beginning were members of this unit.
Green Biker Dude
|"Green Biker Dude"|
The "Green Biker Dude" (abbreviated to GBD), as called by fans of the series, was an unnamed green Maverick Hunter who came along with X in the intro stage of Mega Man X2. As his name suggests, he is a male Reploid with green armor and rides a Ride Chaser bike. He was destroyed by the shots of a Cannon Driver during the beginning of the opening stage of Mega Man X2 while popping a wheelie. Since his death, the Green Biker Dude has become a sort of icon to hardcore fans, rallying them to fight in his memory, or more often, a subject of ridicule. His popularity stems mainly from the throwaway or "Redshirt" nature of his single appearance, as he was only onscreen for a matter of seconds before being destroyed.
Several unnamed Maverick Hunters appear in the series. The only unnamed Hunters seen talking were some that appeared in The Day of Σ, two working for Sigma in a flashback from Mega Man X4, the ones killed by Double, and two in the first stage of Mega Man X6.
Stranded Reploids that appear in stages from Mega Man X5, Mega Man X6 and Mega Man X7 asking for help. The small yellow Reploid that appears in Mega Man X6, is a recolor of Middy from Mega Man Xtreme for the Game Boy Color.
In Zero's solo ending of Mega Man X6, the "Researcher" (研究者 Kenkyuusha?) is an unnamed Reploid scientist that performs Zero's sealing process. He is voiced by Yoshinori Fujita. Players are left to assume that Zero has known him at least long enough to trust his motives. It is implied that this ending leads to the events of Mega Man Zero. Also, the symbol on the back of his clipboard resembles the Square button of a PlayStation controller.
The Rowdy Reploid is an unnamed Reploid from Mega Man X: Command Mission that reported X's presence in Chapter 2. While approaching X in Central Tower's Air City North Square, he says that he is not a supporter of Epsilon's rebellion, but as Reploids, they should support the idea of their independence. He was killed by Spider shortly after.
Saffron, Cumin and Jasmine
Saffron (サフラン?), Cumin (クミン?) and Jasmine (ジャスミン?) are three female Reploid merchants in Mega Man X: Command Mission. They first appear in Chapter 2, where they are rescued by X in Central Tower's Base Security Station, and they sell items to him as thanks. After Chapter 2's completion, they move to the Lagrano Ruins' Area 5F-East and sell rare items. The area can only be accessed with the Lagrano Key after Chapter 3. They also appear at the beginning of Far East HQ in the last chapter.
Saffron is a blonde Reploid that sells items. Cumin is a blue haired Reploid that is the Resistance's weapons specialist and sells weapons. Jasmine is the pink haired Reploid that sells Force Metals. Their hats have 'Zenny' symbols carved on them, each being the same color as their hair. The girls share the same outfit design worn by Cinnamon, with varying hair shapes. Wether or not they share a relation to Cinnamon however is unknown.
