Roll by mooncalfe Roll by mooncalfe
for neo-rama's Mega Man Robot Master meme.

this is Roll (Mega Woman? Giga Woman?) repurposed as a fighting robot either as a partner to Mega Man, to fight in his stead should Mega Man be out of commission, to take over for Mega Man if he's sick of the grind, or to go on her own robot-blasting adventures.

this one's inspired by:
1. always hated how the one girl robot was a house-keeping robot.
2. i read somewhere that Mega Man creator Inafune originally intended Roll to be playable alongside Mega Man in MM2, but they decided not to change things that much from the first game, and Capcom said they didn't want a girl starring in a game because Nintendo was geared to boys at that time.
3. before MM9 was really revealed and anything was known about it, i was hoping they'd change up the formula and i thought it would've been cool to have Roll as the main character, because MM's been put out of commission by Wily or something, then Light overhauls Roll to take on the fight.

Wow, she looks mad! :D
Thinking of her I think I prefer the original names better, "Roll-woman" :)

Love the concept and it isn't far-fetched at all. Dr. Light made two robots. One of them volunteered to control the renegade robots and has been doing so for 10 games now and he was previously a lab assistant. Roll is a cleaning robot so it's possible that if given the situation she could take over for a moment or two. Heck she manages to stay cute and battle it out in games like Tatsunoko vs Capcom, Marvel vs Capcom 1 & 2 and Mega Man Powered Up. Mega Man Powered Up confirms that she is best suited in a melee role. Her battle name could likely be Hyper Roll after her super combo in MVC 1 & 2. Last thing to add is that in Roll's ending in MVC 1, she beats Onslaught before Mega Man and Dr. Light graces her with more power, leaving Mega Man in disdain. This lends itself even further to the idea of Roll in a combat role. OK I am done geeking. Love this!

it would be cool but you know how the fan community is.....change one thing and the fanboys starts whining sigh.

anyway good work nonetheless its a cool concept.

thanks! i wasn't really thinking about the fan community or what they would accept when i drew this, it's just for fun. i think if Capcom actually did something like this, though, that it would be done well enough and people would accept it!!
