This article is about the robot Tango. For his Mega Man Battle Network counterpart, see Tango (program)

Tango (タンゴ?) is Mega Man's feline pet created by Dr. Light in Mega Man V to assist him in the battle against the Stardroids.

Appearances

Tango appears in Mega Man V and Rockman & Forte: Mirai Kara no Chousensha as a weapon. Tango rolls toward the screen to attack enemies. Tango vanishes when the energy is depleted, when falling into a pit, or when the player leaves the room where Tango was used.

In Mega Man 10, Tango appears napping or playing on the counter of ?????'s shop when playing as Proto Man.

Tango also appears in the CD database from Mega Man & Bass.

Mega Man Megamix

TangoGigamix

Tango in Mega Man Gigamix.

Tango has short appearances in the manga titles Mega Man Megamix, Mega Man Gigamix, and Rockman Remix. His design is largely the same as his game-design, minus the cat snout in favor of a more anime-like face. He seems quite fond of Proto Man, offering support for him whenever possible.

Tango has short appearances in Mega Man Megamix, having a fight against Snake Man alongside Beat in "Metal Heart" and napping in "The Grim Reaper of Resurrection". In "The Strongest Enemy to Date", he is shown to be able to transmit what he sees to Eddie. Tango helped Cut Man and the other Robot Masters find Mega Man, and after Roll recovers from her injury, Tango awakens her.

In Mega Man Gigamix, Tango tries to help an agonizing Proto Man by bringing an Energy Tank for him. During the Stardroids attack, Tango tries to protect Proto Man and is injured. Tango awakes Proto Man by licking him, and stops working after some time. Proto Man thanks Tango and wraps the inactive cat's injure with his scarf before leaving for the final battle against the Stardroids. After the battle, Tango is found by Roll and she desperately takes him for Dr. Light, who calms her by saying that he can be repaired.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)

Tango appears in the Archie Comics Mega Man comic series, first appearing in the Worlds Collide crossover with Sonic the Hedgehog, which is set in the future as the main comic, at the time, was yet to start the events of Mega Man 3, while Worlds Collide happens after Mega Man 10. In this series, Tango also seems rather fond of Proto Man, purring against his leg and following him as he is taken in for repairs by Roll. During Mega Man and Sonic's fight in Mega City, Tango allied with Mega Man as backup. His ramming ability was also mentioned to be similar to Sonic's, to the latter's annoyance.

Other appearances

Tango has two cameo appearances in the Rockman & Forte manga, first being shown in the same room where Dr. Light is repairing Proto Man after he was cut by King, and later walking around the lab.

Trivia

  • Tango is a genre of music and a dance style that is Argentina's musical symbol.
  • Keiji Inafune stated that the reason for creating Tango was that the team in charge of Mega Man V wanted to introduce a supporting character that did not appear in the NES games.[1]
  • In the CD data of Tango, his good point being "Rolling-stone" is probably based on the famous 60's Rock Band "The Rolling Stones". It could also be a reference to the way Tango attacks.
  • Tango dislikes Rush, more than likely because Tango is a cat-robot and Rush is a dog-robot.
  • Tango's distaste for pitfalls stems from the rolling nature of his attack -- Tango rolls along the ground, and therefore cannot cross pitfalls, instead falling into them and ceasing his attack prematurely.
  • Like Rush and Beat, Tango's head is similar to Mega Man's helmet.
