Mega Man Revolution, is a fangame by Fifth Independent. It features two playable characters: Mega Man and Bass, 8 original Robot Masters, an additional 8 secondary weapons which are unique for Mega Man and Bass, quite a few stage gimmicks, some original enemies as well as returning enemies. It is in 8-bit style, with meticulous attention paid to keeping it up with the limitations of the NES where even sprite flicker may be present (although this can be shut off in the options). The soundtrack was made in Impulse Tracker, with the program OpenMPT. The game is released in July 4, 2013 and has received some mixed reviews.
The game most likely takes place after Mega Man & Bass. As shown in version 5.0.6 of the game's opening scene:
"Once again the world was at peace, it had been months since Dr. Wily last attacked."
"Dr. Wily has attacked the world several times over with his crazy schemes of world domination.""But this peace would be short lived once again."
"8 of Dr. Light's robot masters suddenly started running amok!"
"It was once again none other than Dr. Wily who was behind this."
"He corrupted Dr. Light's robot masters with the same evil energy Duo had come to destroy in the past.
Dr. Wily: "With this new strain of evil energy, I will be unstoppable! Ha ha ha!"
Dr. Light: We need to upgrade Mega Man so he can stand up against my robot masters!
Dr. Remir: "I've been studying Evil Energy for a long time, so I can help you."
Bass: "I'm fed up with Wily's tired old schemes! I'm going after that crotchety old man myself!"
"Due to the nature of Bass' design, he was already powerful enough to face the robot masters."
"Now the fate of the world rests in Mega Man and Bass' hands."
Upon defeating four Robot Masters, Mega Man/Bass returned to Light Labs, with Light and Remir congratulating Mega Man/Bass for defeating half of them. However, Remir reveals that the Evil Energy strain was far more powerful than before, although Dr. Light is optimistic that they'll develop a cure. After Mega Man/Bass leaves, Light is glad that he's at least well, though Remir complains about the rate it is taking them to get rid of the Evil Energy.
After defeating all of them, Dr. Remir, just as Mega Man/Bass arrived, reveals that he found a high percentage of Evil Energy in India, and mentioned that Dr. Wily might have something to do with it. He also warned Mega Man/Bass that Wily's new strain of Evil Energy is comparable to a virus. Shortly after Mega Man/Bass left, Light asked what Wily could be planning, with Remir pondering the implications of this.
Eventually, Mega Man/Bass left to stop Wily. However, upon defeating Wily, he is suddenly shot by an energy ray. Remir then revealed himself and declared Wily's usefulness to have been expended, and that he had been using Wily, Mega Man/Bass, and Light all along to test the Evil Energy (which he had in fact developed via Wily), and hoped that Wily would defeat them this time, but it either hadn't gone through, or the Robot Masters lack the potential he hoped for. He also declared that he'll launch the Evil Energy into the atmosphere to test it further, and that if Mega Man/Bass wish to stop him, they'd better come to his personal headquarters, Sondebar Base, before departing.
Upon returning to Light Labs, Dr. Light informed Mega Man/Bass that they didn't make it back in time, as Remir had just stolen their research. Mega Man/Bass then told them they were aware, as they had encountered him at Wily's base, as well as witnessed his actions towards Dr. Wily. Light, understanding what they were implying, told them to say no more, and informed them that the Evil Energy strain needs to be destroyed immediately and Remir must be stopped for the sake of the planet. He also informed them that he discovered Sondebar Base: It was underneath the ocean, the Atlantic Ocean more specifically. However, it also means that Mega Man/Bass may not return once they go there.
Upon locating Sondebar Base via submarine, Mega Man/Bass then stormed through the building and eventually confronted Ramir. After destroying his mech, Remir noted that he is apparently defeated, but then reveals that his plan hasn't even come close to giving up, and commented that he still has a family reunion in Alaska to attend to before shattering the floor, sending Mega Man/Bass down deep below the surface of the earth. Upon reaching the bottom, Mega Man/Bass discover the area to be largely organic in nature with disturbing monsters. They then encounter Proto Man, who revealed a certain someone and him developed a weapon to vanquish all the monsters: The Ion Blade. They then continued down to the inner sanctum where they encountered Ramir, who then transformed into a grotesque, demonic creature. Although they were able to wittle his health down, Remir managed to paralyze them and reveal his motives: He's neither Remir nor is he even from Earth. His home planet and people developed the Evil Energy as a byproduct of their machines and organic waste. However, they died out due to ignoring its effects on machines and organics alike due to their complacency due to immunity to the Evil Energy. As they are still bound by the Evil Energy in spite of this, he then proceeded to locate a world to spread the Evil Energy so he can halt its infectious nature. Proto Man interfered and told him that it would harm the Earth as well. Remir then declares the argument insolent and tried to destroy Proto Man. They then fired shots at each other, with Proto Man successfully destroying the creature, although injured himself. Proto Man then told Mega Man/Bass to escape, and that he'll arrive shortly thereafter.
In Mega Man's ending, Mega Man ponders whether its over, with Proto Man then arriving, fulfilling his word of making it.
In Bass's ending, Wily was revealed to have survived and also be the benefactor Proto Man mentioned earlier regarding the Ion Blade. Bass then decided to try and take out all Evil Energy, with Wily being somewhat supportive of the goal. After he left, however, Wily revealed that he still has some spares which he intended to perfect his plans for ruling the world. But was foiled again, after Bass return as he is only pretending to go out, a tactic to draw away from Wily. He destroy the spare of the evil energy and commenting for doesn't need for those stuff to rule the world as he prove it all.

Sand Man is a Robot Master designed to act as a detainment unit at a prison facility in Australia. Using his Sand Shield, he could protect himself from inmates while blinding them. After being taken and reprogrammed by Wily, his Shield’s power was increased to the point the shield would cause serious damage to others. In his stomach is a cooling unit complete with a tube connecting to his mouth. This is to keep him from overheating due to the heat of the desert he works in.

Formerly a Robot Master who aided in police work in the U.S., Blast Man was designed for riot control. His Sound Blaster could fire sound waves at varying frequencies to incapacitate humans or robots and was able to do so without causing long lasting damage. After being stolen by Wily, his Sound Blast was modified to use only the destructive frequency and could be compressed to create explosions. Blast Man likes to put on a big show to make people think he’s tougher than he really is, but in reality he’s extremely effeminate in demeanor.

In Canada, Cryo Man aided in Cryogenic research at a lab that used the extreme cold of the environment around them to aid in their experiments. Being equipped with a mace and the Ice Beam, a weapon capable for creating shards of ice, Cryo Man could break ice apart easily and aid in the creation of colder temperatures. After being reprogrammed by Wily, he went insane and drove all the other scientists and robots from the lab and has been slowly tearing the lab apart since.

From Russia, Haste Man is a Robot Master whose mind is always on two things: speed and business. To put the two things together he created the Cyclone Staple, a high speed production plant that uses high-intensity lasers to aid in the precision-cutting of parts. He would even increase the speed of his own Wild Sprint weapon to get things done quicker, but would more often than not confuse himself from moving around too quickly. After being modified by Wily, he turned his factory into a death trap by combining his lasers with his security system to destroy anyone who would enter his lair.

The newest version in a series of lumberjack Robot Masters, Saw Man was designed to use a new type of saw called the Iron Saw that was made using a new specialized iron. Due to the funds put into making the Saw itself, the budget for Saw Man’s design was decreased. This forced Dr. Light to give him a simpler design with a lack of hands, something which he is insecure about. While working in Brazil, Saw Man was reprogrammed by Wily causing him to go rampant and start cutting down the entire Amazon Rain Forest.

Storm Man is a weather-control Robot Master designed to dissipate severe storms that form around the oceanic border of Africa by using special remote-controlled cloud robots. When off work, Storm Man passed the time by travelling and cataloging the different types of clouds he would see. After being reprogrammed by Wily, he went insane and took over the weather tower he worked at in Nigeria by flooding it. He then began to intensify weather around the world by firing into storm clouds his weapon Storm Chaser, a bolt of electricity. He is also a huge wind bag, liking to tell hugely exaggerated stories of glory nonstop.

- Mega Man Revolution started development 10+ years ago, but was discontinued a long time ago, due to all the project files being erased. It is now being developed once again.
- The game is currently being developed in Multimedia Fusion 2.
- Mega Man uses the Mega Arm instead of the Mega Buster in this game. This is because the game is heavily influenced by Mega Man V, to the point where the Mets in Dr. Remir's castle are replaced with turrets from Neptune's stage.
- Dr. Light in the Light Labs screens/cutscenes depict him playing Pong.
- This may is final game of Megaman Classic series
