  • All initial reploids were based on his technology, but many of them belittled him because of his reluctant personality and B Rank Maverick Hunter status. Is it not common knowledge throughout the world that the reploids were based on X's architeture?

    • 2 Possibilities I can think up.

      One, there exists so many Reploids during the time the Maverick Hunters were formed, no one really thought of X as something special anymore. I mean you've got like so many Individually distinct ones it's tell if X wasn't just 'another reploid'.

      Two, when Dr.Cain put forward the plan to create Reploids, it may have been something the media only found out after the first generation of Reploids were released. So it's possible that people regarded Dr.Cain as the guy who 'created' (Though not really) reploids, rather than investigate further how did he made them. After all, this is the world that may have known about Dr.Light and Dr.Wily's expertise in Robotics, so it may have been assumed that another 'Doctor' made this stuff.

      Either the lore's really lacking or people in the future are that fuzzy.

    • I think the real question here is "at what point did X shift into the public eye?"  If you go by the OVA, X clearly stood out among the other Maverick hunters, as did Zero and Sigma.  You see, X also happens to look a lot like the Original Mega Man, who was a celebrity in the classic series.  His place as a Symbol of Peace is undisputed, and X's likeness to him could have easily been a publicity boost for the Maverick Hunters, especially after X1.  This also begs the question of when X became a Maverick Hunter.  Was he one of the original ones, or did he join later?  So this all can be quite confusing.  Any thoughts?

    • That does sound like quite the conundrum.

      http://megaman.wikia.com/wiki/Mega_Man_X_(series) I'm pretty sure he joined the Maverick Hunters a few months before Sigma went Maverick, because beforehand he didn't really like the Maverick Hunters policy and didn't want to be a part of what they were doing. But later on he joined, the timeline however is unclear since it just says AD 21XX as the date when he joined rather than the month, so we can only guess from his personality and dialogue what he did. Maybe we could just use the Archie Comics as reference even if they aren't canon?

    • Cause the humans were too busy hiding underground

      I'm just kidding, but seriously I don't know why this is either. You'd think with all that X has done and even the very concept of him existing would be enough for people to think of him as a celebrity. As Max734734 pointed out the humans could've easily just have not known about him until all the other reploids were put into commission and just didn't see him as anything special. This would kind of make sense, I highly doubt Dr. Cain the moment after awakening X started shouting to the world, "I found a robot underground that can think and feel!" That's highly unlikely.

      But if we think about it the X series never really focused on the humans, mostly the reploids and their war against Sigma (or other Maverick reploids). So we wouldn't really know unless we were given more insight as to what they were doing the entire time during the series. They never really contributed to the war after all... And it seems like in every form of media portrayed about the X series usually shows that the humans came to fear the reploids after Sigma went Maverick, so I doubt they'd think of one as a celebrity. I believe this is mentioned in the Zero series that humans haven't trusted reploids in a long, long time.

      Then again, that wouldn't make much sense either since the humans have always been under the protection of the reploids, even in the ZX series the Guardians were helping them out (even if Vent/Aile were humans and there were reploid citizens they were saving as well, most of the members were reploids). I doubt the humans would hate the very thing they built trying to keep them alive on a daily basis.

      What I find to be the most likely possibility is that due to the circumstances of the Maverick Wars humans just didn't have the chance to really celebrate X, and most overtime forgot he was the basis for reploids. Either that or no one knew to begin with. It wasn't until sometime after the Elf Wars when Neo Arcadia was made that X could actually get achknowledged as a hero by the humans since they were now safe in some paradise, even if that had nothing to do with the fact he was the first living robot. Since by then the people tha knew (if there ever were any) are most likely dead. To the humans X became the only reploid they could trust not to try and kill them. That's really the only logical assumption I can come up with, since everything else just doesn't make much sense.

    • But, if I'm not mistaken, Neo Arcadia was ruled by Copy X, since X's original body was powering the city or something. It's been a while since I've played MMZ, so I'd have to brush up on my Post Elf Wars history. So with that in mind, the real X remained unknown...

      Unless Wily was still around somehow. A lot of people say that the Maverick Virus is Wily's consciousness in digital form, in which case he'd still exist so long as he had a backup. Also I still think Dr. Wiel is related to Dr. Wily in some way. Does anyone know more about this?

    • Before the first MMZ game X sacrificed his body to seal away the Dark Elf, and Copy X was built as his replacement to keep the place running. The general public didn't know it wasn't the original X for quite some time that was ruling them, not until after MMZ4 I think.

      With the whole Dr. Wiley's conscious living on, I still don't know what to think on that. Part of me thinks it did somehow, and somehow Wiel's related to him, but part of me doesn't. We don't have enough information in Weil to make an accurate assumption though, we just know he worked on the project to create Cyber Elves and instead used Zero's coding to make weapons, soon using the Dark Elf to try to conquer Earth. Plus I don't think many people even know about Dr. Wily once we hit the MMX games, so I doubt there were many smart enough or had the resources to do the research to point the virus back to him. Especially in the MMZ games were almost every record of history beforehand was destroyed.
