The Familiar Familiar

Time for another topic from the Lav archives. This one revolves around a most interesting tidbit on Rockman’s first helper robot in 2008’s R20 Official Complete Works book: early concept art showing an early draft of Rush, as well as a hawk-like bird said to have been considered for the supporter role around the same […]

What month is it again?

Whoops, looks like I didn’t update in April. As I’m sure a lot of people have already noticed, it periodically happens where blogging about Mega Man temporarily loses its charm for me. I’m often amazed how dudes like David, Adam and Brian can do so with such regularity. I bet that there have got to […]

Every Hero Needs Support!

Presenting another of my favorite pieces of tribute art from R20+5: A collaboration piece from a team of Capcom artists! Read on for more images, and whodunnit!

Hello Dolly

Arguably the most talked-about toy in the Rockman mythos is Alouette’s white cat plushie. A heartfelt gift from the human Ciel to a scared repliroid child, it represents the feelings of kindness, empathy, and hope for human/robot relations that Zero must protect. That moment in the first game when the Resistance base is invaded and […]

Steel Sensei

This is one of my favorite 25th anniversary tribute images published in R20+5. The art stands pretty well on its own, but to catch all the jokes and innuendo some translation may be required.

On X

This edition of The Answer is thematically devoted to X’s wardrobe: What he wears, why he wears it, what he could have worn, and what’s underneath.

Brilliant Fashion Show Window

The world of ZX is known for its trendy fashion and incredible hairstyles. After all, where would the game be without Serpent’s luscious soul ‘fro?* Therefore it’s only natural that all this series’ topics from The Answer have to do with how people look and what they’re wearing. (All two of them.)

Fate of the Four Guardians

The Shitennou (the Japanese name for the Four Guardians of Master X) make up some of the most memorable new characters from the Zero series. Despite their being on opposing sides of a domestic war and harboring an intense rivalry with our protagonist Zero, somehow they were never quite our enemies. They sought peace while […]

The Lady, the Scoundrel, and the Gun

Time now for the Irregular Hunter X edition of The Answer.

What-if Rockman Reboot, Plus Some Battle & Chase Love

If Capcom were to reboot classic Rockman, what kind of changes would we see? And if they were free to make any game they wanted, what would the Capcom devs themselves choose to make? This edition of The Answer holds the answers.
