I'm not the original writer of this, just the mildly inept translator. Rockman and all related characters are property of Capcom, I'm not making any money off of this, etc.

For those unfamiliar with the Japanese names for the characters, here's a quick guide:
Rockman=Megaman
Blues=Protoman
Forte=Bass
Gospel=Treble
Rightot=Auto

I have kept in the honorifics, like "-chan" and...er... "-chan" (the only one to ever use them is Rockman when referring to Roll, unless you count the the fact that Dr. Light is "Light-hakase," or "Dr. Light," to most characters). I mostly cut out Rightot's "dasu," a speech quirk that works much like Higure's "demasu" in the EXE anime and games.

The Japanese version, unlike the English version, offers three different versions of the after-stage weapon summary in Dr. Light's lab. I wish they'd kept it in because Roll and Rightot's ideas for the weapons are a stitch.

Prologue

In the year 20XX AD
Many times, Dr. Wily continues to have plans for world domination. Thanks to the actions of Rockman, the situation at present is that Dr. Wily is under arrest. And once again, the world seemed to return to peaceful every day life.

However...
In Dr. Wily's shut down, secret laboratory, behind the scenes actions begin, and Dr. Wily by himself, at the appropriate time, had the essential program wake up four fighting robots…

And, several months later...

~~~

Intro Stage

Rockman and Roll are being driven by Rightot down a highway.

Rockman: Rightot, hurry! The city's being attacked!

Rightot: Gotcha! Leave it to me, Rockman! It's dangerous, so hold on tight, Roll.

Roll: It's so scary... Rock... is Wily doing horrible things again?

Rockman: It's okay! Leave it to me. Since I'm going back to Dr. Light, Rush and I will be powered up.

Rightot: Rockman, this is it. The road is uneven, so the car can't go on.

Rockman: It's dangerous, so you two wait here.

Rightot: Rockman, you forgot this.

Rockman takes the "helmet," a Met hat, and puts it on.

Roll: ............

Rightot: Sorry.

Rockman gives the Met hat back.

Rightot: I thought this one would look cool, but...

Rightot gives Rockman his real helmet, which he then puts on. Fight, Rockman, for everlasting peace!

Roll: Take care, Rock.

Rockman hops out of the car and runs up to Dr. Light and Rush.

Rockman: D-Doctor! Are you all right? I'll bring Roll-chan.

Dr. Light: It's too bad, but we have to hurry! Wily's robots are attacking the city. From here, Wily might escape from prison. Ah…

Explosions come from the prison, and a UFO flies out. Wily pauses in front of Rockman, Dr. Light, and Rush to waggle his eyebrows at them, then flies off.

Dr. Light: I'm fine, but Rockman, you take Rush and go after Wily's UFO.

Begin intro stage

After defeating the stage boss, Rockman encounters Forte. Two sets of dialogue are possible, depending on if you beat him or if you're completely incompetent and he beats you. Regardless, Gospel will beam down next to Forte during the dialogue sequence.

>Win
Forte: Not bad, Rockman!

Rockman: Huh, you know me? Who are you?

Forte: I'm Forte, this guy is Gospel. We're fighting to protect the world from Wily's schemes. We were testing your strength, which was just as expected. Let's go, Gospel!

Forte and Gospel teleport out.

Rockman: ....Forte....?

>Lose

Forte: So this is Rockman?

Rockman: Huh, you know me? Who are you?

Forte: I'm Forte, this guy is Gospel. We're fighting to protect the world from Wily's schemes. We were testing out your strength. This is your standard that's been protecting the world? Heh, what a joke! Gospel, let's go!

Forte and Gospel teleport out.

Rockman: ....Forte....?

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Burst Man (Dr. Light)

Rockman: The Danger Wrap should fire bombs wrapped in bubbles, right?

Dr. Light: It might be that you can also wrap surprising things as bombs.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Burst Man (Rightot)

Rockman: The Danger Wrap encases a bomb in a bubble when fired.

Rightot: When the fireworks go boom, it scatters showily. So pretty…

Rockman: Um, it's not really like that…

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Burst Man (Roll)

Rockman: The Danger Wrap fires a bomb wrapped in a bubble.

Roll: Oh, that's perfect, there's a problem with all the junk the doctor made. Please gather it up and blow it up.

Rockman: Roll-chan…you're hard core…

~~~

Encounter with Blues in Cloud Man's Stage

A familiar whistle is heard. Blues teleports in.

Blues: I haven't seen you in awhile, Rockman. I'll tell you something good. You can use your special weapons to confront enemies, and there should be many types of places to use them.

Blues teleports out.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Cloud Man (Dr. Light)

Rockman: This Thunder Strike fires balls of electricity, right?

Dr. Light: You can operate various machines. Trying it out would be a good idea.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Cloud Man (Rightot)

Rockman: This Thunder Strike fires balls of electricity.

Rightot: Wah, Thunder-sama! My belly button is taken! [おヘソとられるダスー!]

Rockman: You're a robot from what era…

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Cloud Man (Roll)

Rockman: This Thunder Strike fires balls of electricity.

Roll: Oh, I'm so happy, we can save on our electric meter with this!

Rockman: ……

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Junk Man (Dr. Light)

Rockman: The Junk Shield is used for defense by circulating spheres around, isn't it?

Dr. Light: However, if those balls take lots of damage, they will fall apart. Watch out.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Junk Man (Rightot)

Rockman: The Junk Shield collects scrap around the user.

Rightot: It'd be good if you collect screws in the scrap, all right?

Rockman: Okay! I'll surely collect Rightot's screw, too!

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Junk Man (Roll)

Rockman: When used, the Junk Shield gathers scrap around the user.

Roll: That'll be hard to clean up, so don't use it in the house, okay?

Rockman: Okay...

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Freeze Man (Dr. Light)

Rockman: This Freeze Cracker fires balls of ice, right?

Dr. Light: That's right! Moreover, it hits the ground with a strong impact and from there, splits and flies apart.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Freeze Man (Rightot)

Rockman: This Freeze Cracker fires balls of ice.

Roll: What? Cracker?! Crackers are my absolute favorite food! Gimme gimme!

Rockman: I'm not talking about the edible cracker!

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Freeze Man (Roll)

Rockman: This Freeze Cracker fires balls of ice.

Roll: Wah, pretty! I wonder if it can make brooches?

Rockman: I think it'd definitely suit Roll-chan.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after completing the first four stages

Dr. Light: Oh, Rockman, you came back?

Rockman: Yes. By the way, Dr. Light, what do you think about Forte?

Dr. Light: Hm, as far as I can see from his actions, I don't think he's an enemy…

An image of the Robot Museum, roof damaged and smoke pouring out, appears on the viewscreen.

Dr. Light: Wily is attacking the Robot Museum! Head there immediately!

Rockman teleports out.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after the Robot Museum stage

Dr. Light: Rockman! I-it's terrible! Once again, Wily's attack robots are running wild in the city! You have to go there right now!

Rockman teleports out.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Slash Man (Dr. Light)

Rockman: This Slash Claw can cut all kinds of things, right?

Dr. Light: Right! Though the range is short, its energy is powerful.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Slash Man (Rightot)

Rockman: This Slash Claw can cut all sorts of things.

Rightot: Awesome! I wanna see SuXraXdaahXyuu! [I couldn't make heads or tails of the last part, so I just did a straight transliteration]

Rockman: Promise me you won't say that.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Slash Man (Roll)

Rockman: This Slash Claw can cut all sorts of things.

Roll: Well then, recently, the trees in the garden are growing far too much, so you can cut them, okay?

Rockman: I'm no match for Roll-chan…

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Spring Man (Dr. Light)

Rockman: The Wild Coil launches springs to the front and back, right?

Dr. Light: What's more, with stored-up power, the springs will bounce higher.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Spring Man (Rightot)

Rockman: This Wild Coil launches springs to the front and back.

Rightot: If I attach these springs to both feet, my jump power will go up — Super Lightot will be my cry!

Rockman: That sort of thing won't work…

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Spring Man (Roll)

Rockman: This Wild Coil launches springs to the front and back.

Roll: Oh, springs? I wonder if I could use them to repair the doctor's bed?

Rockman: That won't work…

~~~

Encounter with Blues in Shade Man's Stage

A familiar whistle is heard. Blues teleports in.

Blues: You finally came here? Rockman! Let me see your skills!

After defeating Blues

Blues: Rockman. You were the better creation in terms of capabilities. This will probably come in handy for future fights. Have this…

He throws his shield to Rockman.

Rockman: Th-this is… the Blues Shield! Isn't it your treasured shield? It's impossible, you're…

Blues: It's fine, take it. And…take care, man… [note: Blues uses a kind of slang-y pronoun for Rockman here] He teleports out.

You got Blues Shield!!

~~~

Run into an injured Forte and Gospel, just outside Shade Man's room

Forte: Damn! I was careless. In this place, I took damage… Finally, you see my unsightly form [carries kind of a tone of, "great, so what else can go wrong today?"]… With this ability, I might as well give up… I'll turn over the duty of defeating Wily to you!

Rockman: That's not so! I'll contact Dr. Light and get him to fix you two so you can fight.

Forte: Sorry [for the inconvenience]. Though, since your life is full of kindness, it make sense that you're that nice. Forte and Gospel teleport out.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Shade Man (Dr. Light)

Rockman: This weapon is called Crush Noise, and it sends out a powerful destructive sound wave to attack the enemy, right?

Dr. Light: There's more! Rebound the sound wave to your own body, and your body will resonate and emit a more powerful sound wave.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Shade Man (Rightot)

Rockman: This weapon is called Crush Noise, and it sends out a powerful destructive sound wave to attack the enemy.

Rightot: ZZZ…dasu…Z..ZZ..dasu… [note: "dasu" is a speech quirk of Rightot's, similar to Higure's "demasu" in the EXE anime and manga. I cut it out in most places, but kept it in here because I thought it was funny.]

Rockman: This one [Rightot's snore?] is more intense…

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Shade Man (Roll)

Rockman: This weapon is called Crush Noise, and it sends out a powerful destructive sound wave to attack the enemy.

Roll: Oh, is that even greater than Dr. Light's singing voice?

Rockman: Roll-chan…you're relentless…

~~~

Encounter with Blues in Turbo Man's Stage

A familiar whistle is heard. Blues teleports in.

Blues: Rockman. Have you gathered the RUSH plates?
>>If you have...
Oh? It looks like you got all the plates. But you sure weren't careless. See you, Rockman. We might meet again somewhere.
>>If you haven't...
In order to do that, you'll definitely have to collect all 4 plates…

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Turbo Man (Dr. Light)

Rockman: This Burning Wheel fires a wheel of flame, right?

Dr. Light: Right. There might be many sorts of things the flame can light up and burn as well.

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Turbo Man (Rightot)

Rockman: This Burning Wheel fires a wheel of flame.

Rightot: With this, heating up today's bath is Rockman's job, right?

Rockman: Oh, is it really…

~~~

Dr. Light's Lab, after defeating Turbo Man (Roll)

Rockman: This Burning Wheel fires a wheel of flame.

Roll: Oh, that's perfect. I thought I'd make barbecue for dinner tonight!

Rockman: "That's perfect," she says…

~~~

First visit to Big Eddie's

Rightot: Good of you to come to Big Eddie! I'm Dr. Light's number one super robot, Righot. But, the truth is, I'm missing a screw from my head. It's be good if, while you're fighting, you look for my specific head screw. If you find screws that don't fit my head, collect them and I'll exchange them for items. Well then, select an item you want!

~~~

Return to Big Eddie's

Rightot: Welcome, Rockman. You come again and make me so happy! Well then, pick an item you want!

~~~

Big Eddie's, after getting Rightot's bolt

Rightot: What's up, Rockman? Rightot gets the bolt. Th-this! This screw here fits my head perfectly. Rockman! Totally! Awesome! With this, I will use my true abilities! He attaches it to his head using a wrench, then whips out a fan. Whoo-hoo! New items are ready! They're even more useful! And from now on, I can make items with half the bolts! So, pick an item you want!

>>This is the Hyper Rocket Buster. It lets the Rocket buster fly far away.

>>This is a 1up! It increases Rockman's remaining lives by one.

>>This is the Energy Balancer! Pick up a weapon energy recovery item, and it will go to recharge the weapon with the least energy.

>>This is Search Rush. With this, Rush gains the ability to find hidden rooms.

>>This is Rush Jet. Rush gains the ability to transform and fly in the sky.

>>This is a S can! Use it and body energy and weapon energy both fully recover.

>>This is the item for calling Beat! When you fall in a pit, call Beat and he'll come save you. If you haven't rescued Beat, he'll say the following in addition: Beat isn't here and you can't use him. This item was taken somewhere where Beat can't help and I don't know why.

>>This is the EXIT item. You use it to exit from a stage, but if you haven't defeated the boss, it won't work.

>>This is a W can! Use it to fully restore weapon energy.

>>This is an E can! Use it to fully restore body energy.

Buy something
Rightot: Wait a moment. He turns around and fiddles with something. The item you purchased bounces down into Rockman's hand. What do you want to do next?

Try to buy something which costs more than you have:
Rightot: Too bad! You don't have enough screws!

Leave
Rightot: Good luck, Rockman!

~~~

After defeating all 8 Robot Masters…

Rockman teleports into Light's lab, which is in ruins.

Rockman: D-Doctor Light! What on earth…this is…

Dr. Light: R-Rockman? F-Forte suddenly…when the repairs were done, he went wild… Rockman, he stole the plans for yours and Rush's power up…

Rockman: No…no way… Forte? What you're saying is…

Wily's face flickers onto the viewscreen

Dr. Wily: Rockman, Dr. Light. It's been a long time. How are things going? You're right! Forte and Gospel were made by me. Forte made a trick attack, and you let him into the laboratory where he successfully cheated you in order to make sure of your performance. After this, I'll use the plans to power up Forte and Gospel. Well, later, morons. Rockman! [the word I translated as "morons" is "aou," which I think might be some sort of pun on "aho" (idiot or moron) and "ao" (blue). "Blue idiot"? My dictionary says that "aou" means "Eurasia," but I don't think that's correct in this case…]

He flickers off.

Rockman: I'll never forgive you! Wily!

~~~

Midway through Wily Stage 1

Rockman encounters Forte.

Forte: We meet again… Wily fears you, but for the likes of you, I alone will be enough! Prepare yourself, Rockman!

Rockman fights Forte and gets him down to one bar left in his life meter.

Forte: Shit! I'll withdraw for now!

~~~

Midway through Wily Stage 2

Rockman encounters Forte. Again.

Forte: I've been waiting for you, Rockman! You were just thinking I was easy to deal with, but this time with my full strength… I'll defeat you! Come! Gospel!

Gospel teleports down and merges with Forte into his own version of Rockman's Super Adapter. Once again, Forte stops his attack when he is down to one bar in his life meter.

Forte: Why.… Why can't I win against Rockman.…

~~~

After defeating the last Wily Machine

Wily's machine blows up. He grovels on the floor in front of Rockman.

Wily: Rockman, I'm sorry. I won't do it again, forgive me!

Rockman charges his buster and points it at Wily.

Rockman: You can't trick me again, Dr. Wily!

Wily: An attack? You attack me? *Me!* You're a robot; I'm a human!

Rockman puts his buster away without firing and says very slowly:

Rockman: ……

The fortress begins collapsing. Wily is trapped underneath falling debris. Gospel beams in and then teleports out with Wily. Then, Forte teleports in.

Forte: Rockman, Dr. Wily didn't let you lay a finger on him! This time we were defeated…but! I will become even stronger! Later, moron! [again, "moron" is how I translated "aou."] Rockman! See ya!

Rockman teleports out. The fortress bursts into a fiery inferno as he walks away. Roll credits.
