Dr. Cossack says he made a present for Mega Man, a support robot named Beat. Mega Man goes to Dr. Cossack's laboratory, but while talking with Kalinka, Dr. Light calls and says the city is being attacked by Proto Man and other robots. Mega Man rushes to Dr. Light's lab, arriving at night in time to see a robot leaving the lab with Dr. Light. Rock tries to take the kidnapper, but he is kicked and only manages to take a scarf. Rock assists Roll, who weakly says that Proto Man took Dr. Light to a weapons factory. Rock fully changes into Mega Man and runs to the factory, and in the way he is attacked by a shady robot that runs inside a building and closes the door.

He takes a nearby hovercraft to pass the area and is attacked by several robots, including a robot named Octoper OA that gives him some trouble, but is destroyed when Mega Man discovers its weak point. In the way he takes a strange plate and enters the boss room, where he faces Wave Man. The battle is tough, but Wave Man is defeated by a charged shot and Mega Man takes his IC, obtaining a Special Weapon.
Later, Mega Man is passing by a forest to reach the weapons factory and is attacked by Sumatrans. He jumps on a hole and finds an underground area protected by several robots, which leave him tired, but Eddie appears and gives him a Life Energy. Returning to the surface, Mega Man is close to the factory, but a Yudon attacks him. The Yudon is defeated and he finds another plate in the path. Mega Man enters the factory and destroys more robots until Napalm Man appears.

Before leaving the area, Mega Man explodes the weapons factory.
