So TVTropes has this wonderful little topic called "Fridge Horror." Among its wonderful entries is something from Mega Man, and it puts things scarily into perspective about Dr. Light's practices and the Three Laws of Robotics.

"The original series has Megaman vs. Dr Wily, with the latter never being executed for his actions. Eventually, Doctors Light and Wily make their final works, X and Zero, with Zero being imbued with the Zero Virus. The X series has the virus absorbed into Sigma, who becomes the new Big Bad and spreads the now Maverick virus. The virus is defeated, as seen in the Zero series, with Cyber Elves, but the source of said Elves is taken over by Dr. Weil, causing the Elf Wars that ravage the earth and kill off billions of humans and reploids, leading to the Zero series. After that, humanity and reploids merge into a single species seen in the ZX series. In the Megaman Legends series, it's revealed that humanity has been entirely replaced by Carbons, robots that perfectly mimic humans. The last human died before the series started. So, because Dr. Light was too idealistic to realize his little blue war machine should put down the Mad Scientist bent on world domination, earth gets fucked up and humanity dies off."

Remind me again why we put him in charge of saving the world?

Let's think way too hard about video games!

Hell, just call Deadpool or someone to take care of it.

You might as well take the question another way: who else could have stepped up to stop Wily?

Commander Shepard could have done it. 2/3s of the way through his trilogy and he's killed three cosmic horrors. Granted he had an edge, but he's so badass that he got an entire race of sentient warships that routinely eradicate all space-faring life in the galaxy to declare war on him. Not on the galaxy. Not on humanity. On him. Personally.

He could take Wily.

Actually, the real question is:

WHY DOES DR. LIGHT CONTINUE TO BUILD ROBOTS?

Think about it. 1, 3, and 9's Robot Masters are Light's creations gone bad. And because of 1, Wily went on to create his own or steal Robot Masters. And then, when confronted, he has a back-up plan. Fake his death. Pretend amnesia. Escape. Capturing him was something he expected. In reality, even if Megaman broke the First Law of Robotics, it would just be a Wily doll.

Kudos to Megaman when he scolds Wily in 9 for the numerous times that Wily begged for forgiveness.

So Light is the real failure. NOT HAVING A FAIL-SAFE. OR LOGIC FOR THAT MATTER.


Yes, THAT Hardman. This is the new and improved one.

Simple: to get better, stronger robots to fix the problems created by the previous waves of robots! I'll quote the Simpsons to explain this:

SKINNER: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
LISA: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
SKINNER: No problem. We simply unleash wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
LISA: But aren't the snakes even worse?
SKINNER: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
LISA: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
SKINNER: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.


So there's his fail-safe: winter. :D

Maybe not for the Original Series, but it sure wouldn't be out of place in the X or Zero eras!

Remember MM7, where mega's EXACT words(complete with error)
are I gonna do what I should have done!!! And ALMOST kills Wily, but he escapes.

HOWEVER, he never "almost kills" wily again.


Interesting to note however, is that there is an alternate ending to Megaman 4,where Mega DOES kill wily.


Here it is, and it's not a rickroll or anything like that

Actually, I seen other games with that ending. It's a common glitch.
