Hey guess what time it is? DELIBERATE MEGA MAN ROM HACK MAKER BAIT TIME! YAAAAAY! I mean hey if some guy went and did a game where Mega Man fights Street Fighter characters….
In a desperate bid to do SOMETHING productive yesterday I did this crappy picture and crappy sprite art you see before you, hell I even went and did the basic boss stats and weapon description for each “Not Robot Master” shown…

(If this were implemented in a Mega Man rom hack, the Friendship Wish weapon could literally be character sprites from Disney Capcom NES games just for that added dose of meta.)

At this point I even thought up a storyline for this nonsense -
In the year 20XX AD, a mysterious man named Dio Brando appears from another universe. With the forced assistance of that idiot Dr. Wily this mysterious man seeks to host a grand fighting tournament across the dimensions. Already about sixteen participants have reached the top rankings and soon the battles become more heated threatening to lead several worlds to ruin in the escalating chaos. It falls upon the Super Fighting Robot Mega Man to defy this Dio and put an end to this madness before it is too late…
I’m thinking it would go like in Mega Man 3 whereass after the first eight shown here you have to replay four of the levels (The Goku, Satsuki, Sora and Alucard levels specifically) and fight two new oppents in each, then during the Wily Stages you would randomly encounter any eight out of the sixteen bosses over the course of the first four Wily Stages (like two per level).
So yeah if any Rom Hackers feel inclined to go and do this, have fun :3
