Story

Let the Games Begin! - Part One: Trouble Get!

The story begins with Mega Man trying to infiltrate Wily's robot factory. He doesn't want to fight, but he must do so to stop Dr. Wily. Mega Man uses the Super Arm to open the door and throws it at the Big Eyes, destroying them. Inside Wily Castle, Mega Man is attacked by the Yellow Devil and they prepare to fight, Mega Man thinking how things came to the current situation.

The story then starts from the beginning, with Rock and Roll helping Dr. Light prepare for his speech. Dr. Wily appears backstage, demanding that Dr. Light allow Wily to give the speech alongside him. Dr. Light declines, causing Wily to react a bit more hostile. As Dr. Light heads to the stage to begin his speech, Wily begins to plot. Later that night, when Rock and Roll get Dr. Light to bed, Wily enters the lab secretly. He then takes the six Robot Masters: Cut Man, Guts Man, Ice Man, Bomb Man, Fire Man and Elec Man.

In the morning the group sees the news, hearing how Dr. Light's Robot Masters are attacking the city, followed by a broadcast by Dr. Wily, demanding that everyone surrender to him immediately. Feeling hopeless, Dr. Light sulks in regret. Rock, feeling like he has to do something, tells Dr. Light that he wants to become a battle robot. Reluctant but proud, Dr. Light starts to convert Rock into a fighting robot. Upon hearing the name the Mega Buster, Rock's new weapon, he decides to name himself Mega Man.

Trivia

  • The cover had Roll erroneously in her Mega Man 8 outfit. This was fixed for the cover of the Graphic Novel of the arc.
  • Although Rush appears in the cover, he is neither mentioned nor seen in this issue.
  • Before the unveiling, Dr. Wily says to Dr. Light, "I forgot that "Light" makes "Right." In Japan, Dr. Light is known as Dr. Right.
  • When Dr. Wily is reprogramming Guts Man, there is a misspelling in his tablet, "compltete".
  • Rock, upon becoming Mega Man, asked Dr. Light whether that meant he was a "super fighting robot," referring to the Ruby-Spears Mega Man cartoon.
  • Chest, Plum and Ripot, as well as Neige (Mega Man Zero 4), Kattelox TV Reporter (Mega Man Legends), named here Li, police officers and the Inspector (Mega Man Legends), made cameo appearances during the unveilment of Light Labs. The former three characters were also mentioned to be working for the B&C Gazette, alluding to Mega Man: Battle & Chase.
