The archie comic can be hit or miss, but the Protoman moments are god tier right in the feels bro moments.
>>
>>261865718

If I remember right, in the US cartoon he was pretty much completely built by WIly so he was evil. But in the games he's more of an anti-hero. Or just a hero that doesn't want to be in the spotlight.

His core was fucked up because he was a prototype, and because of that it gave him freewill. When Light tried to replace it, Proto thought it would take away his free will so he ran away. Eventually it fucked his body up really bad and Wily repaired him. So that's why he worked for Wily as Breakman for a couple of games.

I wouldn't mind that. But really Bass was underutilized to begin with. He never went anywhere beyond "Bad Mega Man who occasionally tells Wily to eat shit"

He was basically just Break Man, but for future games so Protoman could be a hero.

How exactly is this in any way different? Mechanaloids and Robot Masters are susceptible to the Maverick Virus and its precursors.

Tell me right now how anything would have turned out better if the Maverick Virus had an outbreak and there were simply more prevelant than in MM10, and no one had already figured out a cure?
>>
>>261873002
Exactly. And if X never got the chip then Cain probably wouldn't have come as close to making those shitty flawed copies.

>>261873010
Original Mega Man and Protoman had 'free will' to the degree that they had to follow whatever their programming told them to do and anything that didn't step over those bounds.

X has entire free will. Meaning he can tell any human to fuck off if he wanted.

>>261873062
For Light, yeah. But if he hadn't had researched and developed the chip then none of that shit would have gone down.

Blues does, yeah. But it's never clarified that Rock does.

They have wills, they make their own choices. But only within the confines of their program. Even if that is suitably humanlike; it's not free will.

That's on Cain because he fucked up on reverse-engineering X. The fault wouldn't lie with Light.

No, Protoman does have free will due to his defective reactor. Even after Wily fixed it, he let him keep it for whatever reason. Rock was built without any defects, so he has no free will.

I think Sakurai is the first developer to show that in a neat way. Mega Man's deadpan expression in Smash really drives home that he's a robot, and not an feeling and thinking machine like X.
>>
>>261874587
Quantum processes are "random", anon, which would mean the universe isn't deterministic.

It hasn't been PROVED to be non-deterministic, maybe it's just unpredictable, but it's literally unprovable so there's no easy answer to Free Will vs Determinism.

Because Light was a hopeless optimist, and he genuinely thought robots could coexist with humans and make the world a better place.

It might be irresponsible, yeah, but I can't fault him for hoping for the best in spite of what he's seen. If anything the fact it always fucks up makes me think the world of Mega Man is pretty dark.

Larger level physics are literally quantum physics at a larger scale, anon. The only reason is that the probabilities quickly become irrelevant (but don't disappear) as the scale grows and the scenarios get more complex.

There's free will if consciousness has ANY quantum element that "we" have power over. But that would basically mean we have a soul.

Again, how is that Light's fault? Cain dug up X. Cain tried to reverse-engineering him without getting proper experts. Even then, wasn't it implied that no one in that age was on Light's level?

Light was naive, but you can't blame him for the Reploids. That's entirely on Cain. You're basically saying that the guy who invented the wheel is to blame for the douchebag later on who fucks up remaking the wheel and turns it into a boulder that crushes a village.

Protoman left Dr Light's lab because he was scared and wanted to preserve his own wellbeing. Despite it leading to his powerdown. Protoman joined Dr Wily's asteroid assault team because it suited his interests to meet his younger brother he'd only just heard of in combat.
He decided to help aforementioned younger brother because it suited his interests. Kinship or nepotism couldn't have been a directive before Light considered making other Robot Masters.
Yet Protoman resisted an offer to be repaired by Dr Light some time later, because he felt obligated to his suffering, then later acquiesced at the behest of Mega Man.
That despite the fact both of them once fought each other just for the sake of the fight.

Mega Man isn't an automaton either. He does shit because he wants to. He lives at Dr Light's house with him and Roll because he wants to, despite being given a chance to travel space and spread justice the universe over.
Mega Man requested to change his occupation from "Lab assistant" to "Super Fighting Robot".
He actually does call Wily out on his bullshit fake apologies on repeat occasions.
However has disobeyed orders. Going after Dr Wily despite Dr Light begging him not to, and yet willfully walked into a trap with a fake Light, aware of it, just because he was unwilling to take the risk it might not be.

Yet NONE OF THAT is proof of free will. That's just proof they're both operationally sentient. Which just means they can react to stimulation.

>>261876634
>>261877249
Let me hold your hands as I walk you through this.
Look both ways, you stupid shits.

Light made the free will chip for X.
Light did this KNOWING that robots have a long history of being complete fuckups, especially if THEY AREN'T MADE BY HIM.
Despite knowing full and well people will most likely attempt to copy this technology (since everyone does it when something new comes out), he does it anyway because 'muh son'.
Mr. Fuckup #2 comes along and makes piss-poor copies of X's chip.
They both are massive fuckups and have ruined the future. Light moreso than Cain because he has dealt with the shit over and over and over and over again, knowing very well the consequences of his actions while Cain was just hopeful that he knew more than an irrelevant idiot.
This is all Light's fault, because if he had not even invented the chip, Cain wouldn't have gotten the inspiration to make his own and the Mavericks wouldn't have gone wild.

Good intentions or not, this all stems from Dr. Light making it.

>>261877709
No. His broken reactor didn't give him free will or otherwise change what he was capable of.

What it was however, was the germ from which he made his decision to vacate his home, and get into every other circumstance. The whole circumstance being supposedly solved simply by giving Rock a sister.

I'll accept that Light is naive, but you're just moving the burden of guilt. Light had no idea that there would not be anyone in the future capable of doing jack with his technology. He had no idea that the guy who would find X would be some fucking archeologist. And there'd be no way for him to know that someone unqualified would try to copy his technology.

Light did the work to make sure X wouldn't fuck up. If you build a computer, and then someone else tries to build a computer based off of yours and gets electrocuted because they fucked it up, is that your fault? No. It's their fault because they fucked it up. Light's responsibility for the Mavericks begins and ends with X. Everything else is on Cain and Wily.
>>
>>261878076

If I remember right, Wily is kind of shit with robotic hardware. He was the programming genius. So it's believable that if Protoman's entire energy system is fucked, he wouldn't be able to fix it. All he really did was slap a bandaid on it. It was still enough to earn Proto's gratitude and get him to work for him as Breakman.

It's his fault for inventing something like that in the first place when there was no good that could have come from making something so dangerous.

What >>261878385 was saying. Sigma was the leader of the maverick hunters, but then they ran into Zero. Zero was the one who infected Sigma, who I think was the first reploid Cain built modeled on X. The virus changed in Sigma to become the Sigma Virus, which is a different and more powerful virus than the Maverick.

I think Sigma/Zero virus causes the maverick virus though.

Major headcanon here:
Protoman was thankful, but quickly realized Wily was insane and vowed to stop him while pretending to aid him. He was still bitter toward light and chose not to tell him, but he was curious as to the potential of his "replacement" and so tested his skills when he could, it helped that these fights helped him sell his cover.
>>
>>261878967

Hard Man wasn't doing shit either. He was retired. Really all of the robot masters in HR-R didn't ask for it.

I think it made it more interesting. Mega man talks about fighitng for peace and justice, and his conflicted feeling. But when you see him from the point of view of the RMs, here's a relentless murder machine. Hell, Quickman just calls him Death.

As an aside; I'd like to mention the Wheel is much much more recent a development than you seem to think it is.

Jesus FUCK do you even hear yourself? Ok fine then. Henry Ford is the greatest villain in the world since his invention led to untold deaths and opened the floodgates for several tragedies and accidents. The Wright Brothers are also indirectly responsible for 9/11. The first men who began the bronze age is also indirectly responsible for the murder of everyone killed with a metallic thing. Except because that's fucking stupid. Light's invention worked. Light's invention worked well. It did EXACTLY what it was intended to do. Dr. Cain attempted to repeat Light's success and fucked up. So Dr. Cain is the one who fucked up and can be blamed for it. Stop being stupid.

Yeah, Quick and the Blue was the one that really got me into the Megas in the first place, and it was pretty fucking heavy.

But in HR:R atleast Hardman went out the way he wanted to, even had a crowd begging him not to, but Needle Man was actually better off doing Suicide by Mega and well, Shadow was all sorts of fucked up.
The only downside of that album was no Wily song, the two we got were god tier, and I would have liked to hear what they would have done with him once Gamma was destroyed.

>no good that could have come from that

That's not how Light saw it. He made X for the same reason he made Blues, Rock and Roll. He wanted to make robots that could live with humans and help them. He created X to be someone that could help the entire world move into a golden age and carry his dream far beyond a human's lifespan, if that's what he chose to do.

It's like deciding to not make the lightbulb because someone later on may make the electric chair. But we're also forgetting that X is equipped with weaponry, and the capsules throughout the games. Light was an optimist, but he wasn't a complete idiot. He had fail safes in the event something went to shit, which it did.

That's demonstrably false. Wily has stolen Light's robots and designs repeatedly. In the case of Bass he made a complete schematic copy of Mega Man to use his upgrades. Because he specifically couldn't conceive of anything that could counteract the power adapter.

At best Wily is highly efficient at reprogramming, proficient enough at engineering to reproduce much of anything, and lucky enough to have resources to perform the former, and superpowerful power sources to reverse engineer drop in his lap.

Cars and sentient robots are different, believe it or not.
People who operate cars get killed, while robots who act on their own free will kill humans.
Henry Ford invented a machine based off of the carriage without the need of horses. Light created a chip that gave robots free will when they didn't need it.

Light had no good reason to create it, and he was well aware of how unstable robots and inventors with ambition were.

With Magnet Man, I think he was doing his own thing. Mega Man just came down on him like a ton of bricks because he was a robot built by Wily. What he had been doing, and his relationship with Roll didn't matter.

That's just what I picked up on it. Roll telling him her brother wanted him dead was her answer. So I thought that's what it was implied. She left because Rock wanted him dead, and it wasn't that he wanted him dead because he was with Roll. It's still cold as fuck

And X did exactly that. He assisted humans at every turn. He did exactly what he was built for. Dr. Cain said "shit man I bet I could do that" but fucked it up. Dr. Light's proof of concept did work. But Dr. Cain did not put the same effort into his derivatives. You're basically ignoring Dr. Cain building a swingset but not reading the fucking manual and coming up with a bunch of "spare pieces" at the end of the project. And then when little Sally Sue breaks her arm because the thing broke you say that Light is indirectly responsible.

Reploids were given free will, and some were criminals. This was inevitable without Light's extreme testing and care put into their designs. Cain's crappy copying made them susceptible to viruses and glitchy.

But it didn't ruin the world. Wily's Maverick Virus was the biggest obstacle to Reploids and humans living in peace, and despite several apocalyptic plans caused by him infecting Sigma, his influence still eventually ended. From Mega Man Zero on, all the problems are caused by Weil, and by ZX Reploids and Humans have actually become BETTER than the world Light had imagined. Light didn't do much villainous at all.

That's the thing, Wily isn't exactly sly, he's just dogmatic in his belief that this really IS the answer to the problems the world faces now, getting run by Robots.
So Wily probably instilled a almost exact copy of his beliefs just to proslytize and see if he can drum up support, but by the time of Gamma Unchained it seems like he didn't get anything.

This Wily is really sad compared to Protos.

Protomen's megaman/protoman fucked up by not planning any of their shit and just charging into the streets shooting shit up, then expecting hapless bystanders who have already grown up living in fear to throw their lives away.

It's a little more understandable during the standoff but otherwise if you're going to get groceries and some killer robot starts blowing up all the security bots nearby, you aren't gonna give your life to help it especially when it starts losing.

3D RPG. No party members, just Mega Man. It's a remake of the first game. As you go through expanded stages which are now regions, you get XP to spend on your Mega Buster. When you beat a RM you acquire their ability too, and can upgrade it as you get more XP.

The point of The Protomen is that Bystander's Apathy is bad and you should help heroes when you can.

I'm on the fence about that.
On the one hand it ensures there's variety.
On the other, wins are almost determined to be random at that point since it isn't too balanced.

They're just meh to me. I can't stomach that cheesy anthemic crap, especially not when the competition is an operatic 3-part story with plotlines and some small degree of subtlety and nuance to it. Even if all that nuance is in the liner notes, it's a lot more than Megas ever had.

And really what little nuance Megas had only exists because Protoman's collective fan headcanon makes him a more nuanced character. So they've literally only got Needleman. Shadowman was also a little interesting, but really nothing the Megas do holds my attention.
>>
>>261886745
It's more accurate than you'd think actually.

>We are abandoned by those who still live in fear.

You can get some pretty bitching Chips by fighting upgraded Mettaurs in the doghouse outside your house. If you don't get any, you probably need to raise your end of fight battle ranking.

You'll know what this means when you start playing the game. BN1 is the easiest out of all the games (your health regenerates fully when you finish a battle whereas they drop that for 2 and the rest of the games) so you'll be fine.

Act III

Would you rather have a 14-part epic narrative about Light's third robot, Roll, influenced by Emily, and built as a savior to the streets of the city. Unable to fight against Wily, she argues with Light over the subject before heading to the outskirts of the city to find Megaman once again. When he refuses to come back, Roll decides to try for the third time to combat Wily, and she's defeated in short time similar to Protoman. However, as Wily comes out to inspect the job done by his robots, Megaman shows up to save the goddamn day, which he manages to do in a sense by saving Roll before getting gunned down. At which point, Light shows up, has one last talk with his son before taking his gun and standing to Wily face to face as we get an amazing final climax of Light and Wily facing off after all these years, eventually ending with Wily's neck in Light's hands. Roll tries to stop Light, but she's unable, as Light breaks down over Wily's body and weeps for the friend, the lover, the sons, and the city he's lost.

Or Act III is going to be 5 songs, all from Dr. Wily, about him going down the street to the grocery store to pick up white bread and eggs.

I'd rather it be about Roll being created to bring Rock back. He comes back and gay shit about family with Light, Light dies, Rock kills the shit out of Wily and frees the city against the faggots will.

I spoke with the band when they were playing Warped Tour.

>>
>>261890434

Megas cover The Sons of Fate. While short, the two voices they have are prominent enough to convey a decent level of emotion, plus I think it could turn out really well.

Protomen should cover Harder than Steel, no contest. It fits their style of music and covers far too well.

The Bread and Eggs song (Dr. Wily)

by the Protomans

I awake in my bed to the sound of an alarm
(Trumpet)
I get up, brush my teeth and shut off the alarm
(Violin)
I look out my window and see the 17th god damn robot light has sent to kill me holy shit
(Accordion)
I walk outside, stab him in the fucking chest, and then put on my kicks
(More trumpet)
I turn round the corner, people see my face, they bow to me, they watch how I race.
(Cowbell)
I walk 'cross the street, what do I see? The 18th son of light staring at me.
(Long tense blow on the trumpet)
And then I stabbed him in the chest like I did Emily.

( Next Track) The accquisition of bread and eggs (The fall of hunger)


I walk into the store, the clerk sees me, he greets me, and I can tell he wants to defeat me.

(Trumpet)

I devise a plan, I grab my bread and eggs, I go up to the counter and I stab the clerk in the chest

(Long, hard, wawa mute trumpet)

I then realize that the bread and eggs are 12 god damn years old because literally no company wants to transport to an evil dictatorship fucking city, like seriously, what country are we in?

Then I hop on my motorcycle and blast built to last and ride through the town.

(Transition into next song with trumpet)

>And even if it was proven, Inafune outright said it was not canon
No; he didn't. This is actually the laughing stock of all supposed series personas because he hasn't and has never attempted to. Sure he took every opportunity to berate Quint and GBII, and lamented how he "doesn't like it". But because he made Punk, and loved Enker instead the only retcon he's actually suggested isn't what games are canon. It's the retcon being "Well Quint's not REALLY a Mega Man Killer.". Which does nothing more to him or his story more than stopping him from being one more bonus boss in MM10.

I'll dumb it down for you.
Let's say a particle has its position decided by a probability function (imagine throwing a n-sided dice twice, for example, and using that for coordinates), this is how electron orbits work in real life, by the way.

Let's say a particle with a specific probability function has a 50%(0.5) chance to phase through a wall if it's perfectly positioned with the wall's particles(made up the chance but it doesn't matter). An atom, made of 10 particles, has a 0.5^10 chance to phase through a wall, since it has to have all the particles positioned perfectly.
A molecule made of 4 atoms has a 0.5^10^4 (that's 3000 zeroes) chance to phase through a wall.

As the system becomes more complex, more exponents are added, making the chance to phase through a wall EXPONENTIALLY harder. This means it doesn't get twice as hard with twice the complexity, but that it gets the complexity multiplied by itself.

In the end, you have a 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000...01% chance to phase through a wall as a human being, which means that even if you were immortal and tried for the entire age of the universe, it would be virtually impossible to phase through a wall once.

That's why, even though quantum physics allow for insanely weird shit to happen, it doesn't affect us at all. Even if it relies on chance, the chances are so low that since the universe has a limited lifespan it means it's probabilistically impossible for weird shit to happen at a normal scale.

However, it means that if consciousness relies on a few quantum factors, we can still have free will, since obviously the universe allows for it.

Anon, they still had something wrong with them. Suicide can also be the rational deterministic decision too, if you know with certainty you'll be tortured for the rest of your life, for example.

When he was berserk and infected with the Zero Virus, he was pretty much a nonstop killing machine. If you saw him, you didn't survive. If he was like that and active before being put to sleep, it'd make sense that he killed Wily, and everyone else.

I never bought into that, and I was raised on Webcomics.

EVERY SINGLE THING we know or can reasonably infer about the time between Classic and X suggests the Classic series ended when Dr Wily stopped making active attempts to conquer the world. Then everything just went on as normal with Zero and X taking time-released dirtnaps.

I know it doesn't provide closure for anyone. But it is inconceivable Zero went on a Rampage; then went back to sleep peacefully being half assembled. Just on the basis of the scenario against the world itself.
