Wily Castle from Mega Man 2

Wily Castle (ワイリー城?), also known by other names such as Wily Fortress, Wily Stage, Skull Castle and Wily Tower, is the common name used for Dr. Wily's several fortresses with skull motif that appear as the final stages of most games from the original Mega Man series, though not all of them have names. They often have several hazards, mazes, strong enemies, a rematch against the Robot Masters, and a final fight against Wily inside one of his machines, like the Wily Machines and Wily Capsules. The amount of stages vary depending on the game, having from one to six stages.

Dr. Wily's Hideout

The game begins in Dr. Wily's Hideout (Dr.ワイリーのアジト Dr. Wairī no Ajito?) with Dr. Wily plotting to conquer the world, but Mega Man appears to stop him. However, that's a fake Dr. Wily, and the real Dr. Wily tries to crush Mega Man with his newest machine. Mega Man avoids the machine and Wily releases several bombs from his machine to destroy the hero, exploding his hideout. Mega Man survives by teleporting away and returns to face Dr. Wily's machine in the wasteland (荒野?) that the hideout was located.

Only one room from the hideout appears, which is similar to a room from the Wily Castle in Mega Man 4. Also, in Mega Man 4 Wily sets his base to self-destruct, and Mega Man escapes by teleporting out.

Dr. Wily's Military Base is one of the game's stages, featuring Dr. Wily walking back and forth in the background while yelling to the competitors with a megaphone. It is possible to see Dark Man 1, Metall Potton, Mad Grinder, Baccones, and a giant Killer Bullet in the background. Dark Man 1 is absent in the PlayStation version of the game.


Other media

Wily Castle appeared in several Mega Man related media, including the Mega Man animated series, Captain N: The Game Master, the Mega Man comic book series, Mega Man Megamix, the Rockman manga series, Rockman & Forte, and Rockman 10 -Extra F-.

Other fortresses

WilyCastle1

Dr. Wily's Robot Manufacturing Plant

Besides the Wily Castle, Dr. Wily also used a Wily Station (ワイリーステーション?) in the first four Game Boy games (two of them being space stations), the Wily Battleship (ワイリー戦艦?) in Mega Man IV, and the Wily Star in Mega Man V. In the first Mega Man game, Wily's base is called Dr. Wily's Robot Manufacturing Plant, but was renamed Castle Wily in Mega Man Powered Up. In addition, there were also unnamed fortresses in Mega Man: Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters, the latter also doubling as a giant robot. The bases of Lord Wily, Dr. Wily's counterpart from the Mega Man Battle Network series, are called WWW Research Facility and Castle Wily.

The Worlds Collide crossover event in the Archie Comics Mega Man series saw Wily combining elements of his Wily Castles with Dr. Eggman's Death Egg concept, creating the mighty Wily Egg.

Trivia

  • Mega Man 10 marks the first instance of (at least part of) Wily's castle being in space. Until this point, the only fortresses in space were the stations and battleships in the "Rockman World" series for the Game Boy. This is also the tallest building in the series, preceding other buildings like the Jakob Orbital Elevator from Mega Man X8 and the Neo Arcadia Tower from Mega Man Zero.
  • Interestingly, almost all of the Wily Castles and other fortress have a pipe-shaped chimney-like detail on the right side.
