Mega Man, also known by his proper name "Rock Light" is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series. He is from the Mega Man series and this one in particular is the main protagonist of the classic series.


Mega Man is a highly advanced robot with a near-human personality created by Dr. Thomas Light. In the year 20XX, Dr. Light and Dr. Albert Wily worked together to create robots with unprecedented artificial intelligence that could be used to supervise other less advanced robots. The prototype of these robots was known as Proto Man (called Blues in Japan), but having a free-spirited personality, and fearing being tampered with to fix an unstable core, he ran away. Dr. Light theorized that Proto Man ran away because he desired a companion, so he next designed two robots: Rock, designed as a lab assistant, and Roll, designed for house work. Based on these successes, Light and Wily then built six Robot Masters: Cut Man, Guts Man, Ice Man, Bomb Man, Fire Man, and Elec Man. However, Dr. Wily grew jealous of the recognition Light received for their work. Wily began his designs for world conquest and stole the Robot Masters. Seeing Rock and Roll as useless, Wily left them behind, inadvertently creating his ultimate undoing, as Rock would volunteer to be converted into a fighting robot. As Mega Man, he would thwart Wily's plans time and time again.
