  • It's a little something I asked on my blog when I was still Mike Gilbert. On DeviantART, there are two pieces of art portraying Light, Wily, and their legacies, while on the mad scientist page for TVTropes.com, it was stated Wily's one of the few villains to have succeeded posthumously.

      Dr. Light's legacy

      I'd say Dr. Light, who made the Legacy Character Mega Man ("Mega Man"), and Mega Man X was used as a template for the Reploids.

      While Dr. Wily's last creation, Zero, outlived X, and the virus was a Villainous Legacy that resulted in terrible wars, in the end Dr. Light's dream of humans and robots coexisting became true in the Mega Man Legends era, having both and bionicles.

      If X wasn't found before Zero, than there would be no Sigma to stop him, thus no Maverick Wars. (And probably no robots and humans left to find X later... Unless Zero himself found him, in which case the evil red robot would probably terminate X without awakening him and complete his mission).

      If Zero was found first, the world would be like the grim future from the Terminator series, if not worse, with not only robots fighting humans, but also many out of control machines fighting themselves...

    • Maybe. Although I'm not entirely convinced Legends is a part of the main timeline. It just feels so divergent from what happened and I haven't seen an in-universe reference to the past. And probably won't because of whether petty reason that's influencing Capcom as of this moment.

    • Zero brought about the peace and along with model X, he saved the new era again.

    • Legacy is about endurance and impact X and Zero's have outlived their creators so that might have the greatest ones. But on the otherhand Wily and Light still indirectly influence the franchise so they have the greatest legacies

    • Ciel and Lan Hikari both have a better legacy than Wily or Light.

      It's just a thought.

    • I'd say X had the greatest Legacy.  He saved the world 12 times over (with Zero's help), and then went on to rebuild the government, forming Neo Arcadia.  After he became a Cyber Elf, he directly guided Zero and the Resistance to peace throughout MMZ1-3.  However, after that, he was again brought back in the form of Model X.  In that form, he trained Vent/Aile to save the world yet again.  Not only that, but the Resistance, via the things they learned from X, evolved into the Guardians, who adopted Vent/Aile and Model X (ZX) so that he could again save the world.  With that in mind, the Guardians and the events of MMZX/ZXA are a result of X's direct influence in both his Cyber Elf form, and his Biometal form.  From that point to the Legends series, things get kind of fuzzy, but in all likelyness, the Protectors of Elysium most likely derived their name from the users of the Biometals, the Mega Mans (Mega Men?).

      Formally what I'd say about this, is that X had the greatest legacy of influence, while Zero had the greatest legacy of his image.  Many of the heroes after the MMX era had the image of Zero upon them (MMZ, Model ZX), while they were acting under the influence of X.

      Valid point.

    • When you think about it, if we count sheer lifespan (Assuming Evil Energy, Roboenza and the Maverik Virus are the same thing) Trio/Oud/That one evil purple robot has the greatest legacy. He's been around for thousands of years (Presumeably) and has powered or outright controlled some of the most iconic villains in the series. Like Bass, Zero, Sigma, Zero again, and it wasn't untill X sacraficed himself before the zero series that he was taken down for good. Also, Ra Moon is literally responsible for all conflict and violence in the series, possibly even influencing the Battle Network timeline (As the two timelines are the exact same untill Light chooses hardware or software. God knows why that affected Duo, but hey)

      EvilRobot

      We have found our enemy

      RaMoon1

      But for once it isn't us.

    • Possibly...unless Dr. Light choosing Hardware or Software was no accident. Potentially Duo could have been involved in it, and that's why he'd change between the timelines.
