I'm not familiar with the plot of the game, but consider this: is it possible that the reason why Mega Man no longer exists in the Mega Man X era because of the events of Mega Man II?

Basically, the reason why Mega Man isn't there is because he was turned into Quint, and subsequently destroyed by Mega Man?

What?

That sounds weird. MM2 GB DOES have sequels, s I doubt that's likely.

Well yeah, of course Mega Man still exists then. What I meant is beyond the GB games and the main series. Everything that happens between the Classic and X eras. Very likely the Mega Man that became Quint was taken from that timeline, so if its a stable time loop, then Mega Man's fate is to be captured and reprogrammed by Wily, taken back to the past, and get destroyed by the Mega Man of that time. And if that's the case, Mega Man wouldn't be around, leaving the heroics of that era up to X, Zero, and later, Axl.

Yeah, because I doubt Mega Man would have been just left laying there for Wily to reprogram unless Dr. Light and the other characters had already died/shut down. The time that Wily traveled to could very well be the same time that Dr. Light had already passed on and X was still under stasis within his capsule.

Shit, what if instead, Wily finds X, reprograms him, and brings him back to the present of the Classic timeline to fight Mega Man?

That would suck.

Thank god X was stuck under a rock.

Even still, if this happens to be the case, its a rather depressing end to Mega Man's story.

I think it's more likely that after light passed away, megaman, roll, auto, eddie, Rush, and all the others just broke down.. It's possible that auto survived the longest and kept everyone going for a little while, but he wasnt light, and didnt have the same talents..

Since Light was the only one that could really keep their maintenance in good shape, his death would mean they likely went without repair for too long, and just broke.. Not exciting, but it flows with the story better.

Protoman had a faulty generator, and his days were numbered from the get-go. He was likely the first to go.

As for Bass, I think Wily finally had enough and destroyed him.

They probably all ended up in a robot museum, along with all the other robots.

For serious, Bob and George gave us a animated reason of the end of the original.

Zero is unleashed, kills everyone save for Auto and Protoman, and is put away.

It's worth pointing out that in Battle Network, Wily is still alive and Light isn't. If Wily outlived Light in the mainstream universe as well, and the doctors didn't have kids like they did in the Battle Network world, then Wily could quite easily have captured a deactivated Mega, and destroyed the others without resistance. :(

If that happened, then why didn't wily use Mega instead of Zero to put his ultimate virus into?

Zero being more powerful than Mega Man would be enough of a reason to me.

Plus it was sort of a point of pride for Wily to create something to outdo Light rather than just co-opt one of his works.

Ah, but something DOES contradict it.

And that is... Rockman Shadow!!!

If I remember correctly, it works like THIS.

Timeline 1 (Quint) Megaman 1-9 take place. Wily reforms, and megaman is remodeled back into a household robot. Then the events of megaman 2 GB occur.

Timeline 2 (Rockman Shadow)- Megaman 1-9 and the GB games occur. Megaman kills Quint, and the events for rockman shadow occur. After GB 5, megaman goes power crazy, turning into Rockman Shadow. He is never remodeled.

Timeline 3 (X series)- megaman 1-10, and GB games. After seeing two future possibilities for himself, megaman is never remodeled, however keeps his desire for more weapons at bay. Everyone eventually breaks down, and (IDK about this) megaman is wiped and remodeled into X, after being given Free Will™ However, careful to make sure that X Shadow does not occur, Light places X into a capsule, records a bunch of messages is capsules with one-time use armor, and has a heart attack or something. Meanwhile, Wily seals himself in a statis chamber to make sure he is still alive when Zero comes around?]

If anything is wrong with this theory, please let me know!

Rockman Shadow was a copy of Mega Man built by Wily, but the idea was scrapped in favor of making Mega Man into Quint. Ergo, Mega Man did not become Mega Man Shadow.

That've caused a time paradox anyway.

The Mega Man wiki is a nice place, but it's not 100% accurate... I've often seen unconfirmed facts or complete rumors within some articles. After all, anyone can edit the pages!

Exactly. Since it's a new body, however, it's not Dr. Wily's even if it's still his design along with the mind. It depends of the angle you use to look at things. :)

The idea Hollow's getting at is that Omega was essentially what Zero was meant to be, had his programming not been altered.
