Yesterday we focused on his friends, and today on the countdown Rockman’s rivals will have their turn in the spotlight!
Through all the years, Dr. Wily has been churning out one series of powerful robots after another! Among them, there are a few that were born specifically to meet Rockman in combat. These robots are some of Rockman’s most dangerous and memorable foes:
A set of Rockman’s deadliest challengers, the three Rockman Killers Enker, Punk and Ballade along with the evil Rockman from the future Quint were introduced in the Rockman World titles. This fearsome foursome returned for a rematch towards the end of Rockman World 5. Three of them would also return as extra stage bosses in Rockman 10 while the fourth became the central focus in the unique stand-alone Rockman & Forte game for the Wonderswan.
203. Defeated by Rockman in the past, his old enemies make a comeback!!
Following these four Dr. Wily developed Rockman’s greatest rival to date.
Perhaps you’ve heard of him?
Built from close study of Rockman’s blueprints and utilizing the energy element known as Fortenium, Forte has his very own variable weapon copy system and even comes equipped with a trusty canine sidekick. The Anti-Rockman was born!
Rockman vs Forte
4. Watch out for Forte’s power, Rockman!!
Many times Forte’s strong will and his determination to prove himself the most powerful has put him at odds with his creator Dr. Wily’s plans, landing him on the same side as his sworn rival. Some of his fellow robots believe that deep down Forte has a sense of right and wrong, even though his pride usually comes first. Are he and Rockman destined to duel to the death, or will Forte one day embrace his inner justice and become a hero all his own? His fans will continue to watch his story unfold in the years to come!
Meanwhile, our birthday countdown continues tomorrow!
