The storylines for Mega Man, Mega Man S, Mega Man C and Mega all read identically to each other save for three parts: Prologue, Wily Castle 3 and Epilogue. Instead of putting down the entire Mega Man storyline in a new section with the necessary dialogues changed, the variant ones from Mega will be added to the aforementioned sections.
Scene 1: Prologue
Narrator: The year 20XX. With the advancement of science, humans were able to create industrial humanoid robots. A helper robot by the name of "Mega" lived peacefully in the labs of the foremost authority on robotics, Dr. Light. But then, one day...
(The scene opens as Mega is seen running through the Opening Stage until he is stopped by Roll.)
Roll: I've been looking all over for you, Mega! We've got a big problem!!
(A big monitor is shown to the right of the two and Dr. Wily is seen on the screen.)
Dr. Wily: Wahahahaha! Ladies and gentlemen, your attention, please. The name's Wily! The one and only—the brilliant scientist, Dr. Wily! It may seem rather sudden to you, but I've decided I'd like to take over the world! Ahem! Anyway, to begin... Dr. Light! I'll be taking your precious robots!!
(The screen shatters as Dr. Wily in his saucer comes flying out of it. Dr. Wily then proceeds to talk to Mega and Roll.)
Dr. Wily: Nuhahahaha!! That is to say... Hmm?... What's this? A helper robot? You're just a pile of scrap metal with no special abilities! Nuhahahah!
(Dr. Wily's capsule flies away.)
Roll: Our friends are in trouble, Mega! Let's hurry to the lab!
(Mega proceeds to make his way through the stage until he comes across a door. He enters it, and the screen fades to black. The next scene cuts to Dr. Light and Dr. Wily in Light's Lab. Wily and his saucer is seen holding a stuffed wriggling brown bag with Wily's seal on it. The contents in the bag are Dr. Light's Robot Masters that Wily kidnapped.)
Dr. Wily: Nuhahahahah! Just as I promised, Dr. Light, I'll be taking them with me!
Dr. Light: Stop, Dr. Wily! Stop, I say!
Dr. Wily: Farewell! Nuhahahaha!
(Dr. Wily flies off.)
Dr. Light: Wait! Stop! Dr. Wily!
(Mega and Roll arrive at the lab a bit too late.)
Dr. Light: ...What insanity! Using my robots to conquer the world...
Mega: Professor, please! Change me into a fighting robot!
Dr. Light: Mega?! What are you saying, my child?!
Mega: Please! I really want to help everyone! But I don't know if I'm strong enough yet...
Dr. Light: Hmmm... Alright... I understand. I don't like it, but sometimes, such things must be done... I must make the necessary preparations.
If Playing as Mega Man
Dr. Light: Roll, could you please assist me?
(Mega is seen transforming from his household self into his battle-ready armor. Mega then becomes Mega Man!)
Dr. Light: I've adapted your arm cannon so you can acquire your opponent's abilities. They will then become your own and you will be free to use them!
Mega: Well, Professor, here I go!
Dr. Light: Listen Mega... No... rather... Mega Man! Yes, that's it! From this moment on, you shall be Mega Man!
If Playing as Mega
Dr. Light: Please! My robots... your friends, you must stop them!
(Mega Man/Mega leaves the lab and proceeds to work his way through the rest of the Opening Stage. He then encounters Dr. Wily.)
Dr. Wily: Ach! You followed me?! I don't have time to fool around with the likes of you!

Mega Man: I'm really angry, Dr. Wily! Using innocent robots for your own evil plans—I won't forgive you for this!

Dr. Wily: Whoooooooa!
