Rockmen R: Dr. Wily's Counterattack (ロックメン Ｒ: Ｄｒ．ワイリーの逆襲) is a Japanese Doujin-soft PC game released by Capricorn in February 2009. The game stars Roll, and features a unique cast of Robot Masters as well as a new robot called Piano.
Mega Man is defeated and kidnapped by a mysterious robot working for Dr. Wily. With no other options, Dr. Light sends Roll to Rock's last-known location to investigate, and she encounters a mysterious female robot who looks almost exactly like her who goes by the name Piano. Roll defeats Piano in a brief duel, but Piano informs her that her master has eight new Robot Masters working for him and that she will never be able to save her brother.
Roll sets out to defeat the new batch of robots and then makes her way to Dr. Wily's latest skull castle. There, she encounters many Robot Masters from past battles, as well as other foes. When Forte confronts her, she defeats him, though he claims he was "going easy" on her and wanted her to defeat "the stupid old man" once and for all (very likely that Forte wants to be the one to defeat Rockman). Roll encounters Piano two more times, but defeats her both times. Piano questions why she cannot defeat Roll, but Roll says that although she is powerful she has nothing to fight for (whereas Roll is fighting for Rock's safety).
Roll finally confronts her brother, who warns her that he cannot control his actions and that she should leave immediately. Roll, however, manages to defeat him and then tells him to go to Light Labs for repair. Then, she defeats the cloned Robot Masters and confronts Wily, who is easily defeated. Roll threatens to kill Dr. Wily (just as Rock did in Mega Man 7), but just as she is about to shoot him he reveals that he is nothing but a clone robot, and then the lab self-destructs (though Roll escapes safely).

Rockmen R Gameplay
- Laser Man is the only Robot Master to have been created after his NetNavi counterpart. However, since this game is unofficial, an official Robot Master counterpart for LaserMan.EXE doesn't exist yet.
- The "R" in the title stands for Roll.
- Piano shares her name with a scrapped character from Rockman Gigamix, along with her sharing the same role: to be Dr. Wily's counterpart to Roll. Whether this was a coincidence or not has not been made clear by the game's creators.
