I haven't talked about Mega Man in... wow! A very long time! Today Theorists, we are going to remedy that! When I think of Mega Man, I tend to think of the amazing gameplay rather than any deep, overarching story. That was an oversight on my part as the lore within the Mega Man universe is CRAZY! Did you know that Mega Man will bring about the end of all human life? No? Well put on your helmets, we're digging deep into this franchise!

This was actually my head cannon for years. That this was the end of it all and that maybe a Legends 3 would come out and finish off the last of humanity's old technology. At the end of the second Legends game, it is said that "The masters and their machines are walking up." This always made me think of the Robot Masters. Because in truth, they perform the same functions. They attack and destroy the carbons as the old Robot Masters attacked and destroyed humanity. Perhaps the last bit of Wily?

7:34: "None of this was ever officially stated..." List of moments where Zero being a creation of Wily being officially stated: 8:03 8:47 9:10 9:30 9:42 Why would you make a video explaining a "theory" that's just a f*cking lore video

Technically, this theory dosent actually say that mega man doomed humanity. It's more about how willy had the ultimate plan that started a chain reaction to end all humanity.

For a video called "How Mega Man doomed humanity", you didn't explain how. Don't get me wrong, this video showed some interesting points, but of all the things you explained here for your theory, how Mega Man doomed the human race is not among them. I'm not expecting perfection, (heck, the last theory you did on Mega Man was not very good) but I'm just saying. Unless there's something I missed, and you did explain it. I don't know.

Ok, so I doesn't make sense still because mega man can be still alive in space and you said 60% of human died so that leaves 40% left that's still a lot so probably not everyone is ded

I love the idea that Wily persists through the entire series, even if he's reduced to merely just being a concept after he dies. It's the one thing that's a constant. If there's a Mega Man, there will _always_ be a Wily.

Could roboenza be connected to the maverick virus? DUH HECK YEAH! it was first discovered in zero when sigma did the whole battle against zero. wily created zero, so wily created the maverick virus. it was wily's fault the X series started!

Wily may have died even earlier than you think. Wily not only gets the roboenza virus in 10, but also uses the double gear system, despite not being a robot... I think?

Mat: *only mentions ZX for like 5 seconds* Excuuuuse me, but that game perfectly portrays how the fight between Light and Wily is still going on, just indirectly. Biometal W is created in Weil's image and personality, who is essentially Wily 2.0. And Biometals Z and X are made in Zero's and X's images too. While they aren't *directly* the originals, they are still products of the originals.

To be honest this isn’t even a theory, it’s just a fact, we KNOW people died and WE KNOW that all real humans go extinct, this isn’t a game theory, it’s a game FACT! But hey, that’s just a comment, A GAME COMMENT

This is why there's an alternate timeline with Mega man.EXE which goes into Mega man star force. In that world, rather then robotics scientists invested research into the internet and radio waves respectively. The former results in the creation of an entire cyber powered universe or cyber-verse if you will, where sentient programs live and work side by side with humans both good and bad. Down the line when the radio wave research found an alien civilization, despite a war stating out down the line things turned out great.

MatPat forgot to mention about in Mega Man 8, Dr.Wily made his new fortress not only underground, but with a invisible shield that can only be deactivated if all the robot masters are defeated. In fact, not even Mega Man knew where Dr. Wily was. If Mega Man had never followed Duo after he escaped from Dr.Light's lab, he would have never found Wily. Wily could of continued his evil schemes undisturbed and hidden from anyone espically, Mega Man. I mean, hasn't it been that in every game, Mega Man always finds Dr. Wily's castle no matter where it was. Mega Man has found Wily's castle on an island in the 3rd game, in a snowy area in the 4th, on a canyon in the 5th, and found a Wily Castle that has a tower that reaches all the way into space. But in the 8th, Mega Man fllowed Duo and found the castle underground. I am a avid fan of mega Man. Love your videos by the way.

Game Theory Idea: What would a woman need to become a real life Lara Croft Tomb Raider. I mean education, estimated amount of money, physical training, actual places to discover and explore, would be a good archeologist while shooting everything and everyone while running through ancient ruins?
