I know it was more powerful that the Mega Buster in Mega Man Powered Up, but come on, IT’S A BROOM!!! Even if Dr. Light made her a titanium handled broom, it’s still just melee weapon, and therefore no more powerful than the arm that swings it. I have no doubt that Roll is stronger than any human, but still...

Hmmmm, well guess you wouldn't want Wily to actually get hurt so early in the story. Plus it looked like he got more of the bristles.

if I was in that situation, I'd hit him with the broom again just to piss him off more, then when he yells I'd hit him again, and every time he tries to say something I'd hit him again, that would be too funny.

Roll's not actually holding the broom in the 5rd panel, which makes me wonder where did it come from in panel 4?

The thing is, if she swung it rather than jab it, she could of knocked him out... but of course he's old and such force might be enough to do even more serious damage.

Shouldn't Roll (just like Megaman) be programmed with the 3 laws of robotics? This is in direct violation of the 1st law.

@The_Saiyan: 5rd panel?? If you mean the 3rd, she's holding the broom...

It's a broom! A broom didnt hurt him. Plus, she was savin Light's ass.

There is techicly a code overide and a person identifire in her so... she could probly kill wily w/o braking the laws. just bypasing them

Where the heck did you hear that Jagman?

its basic programing... if somthing has a higher ranking than somthing eles the higher ranking job can take the lower ones ablity away... roll wasent featured untell the last part of mm 1 my guess is that dr light put in an override code in roll to help protect his fat ass

In theory, the three laws are the three laws are the highest-ranking priority, and cannot be overridden. However, one shouldn’t assume that the laws are as simple as their description. The first law states, “A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.” However, the exact definition of injure could vary, especially since Dr. Wily has already stated that he intends to kill Dr. Light. More than likely, Dr. Light programmed the law with several variables such as “can’t injure a human who is unlikely to harm another human” or even “can’t permanently injure or kill a dangerous human” and so on. Dr. Light is a genius and would not have programmed his robots with three simple lines. More likely, there are thousands, even millions of circumstances that Dr. pre-programmed, and even more lines for dealing with unanticipated situations. At best, we can assume that Roll cannot kill a defenseless Dr. Wily, even though it seemed quite likely that Mega Man was about to do so in MM7. Basically what I’m trying to get at is STOP TAKING THE THREE LAWS SO $#%&ING LITERALLY PEOPLE! Please.

Just say that the laws are just laws. Not protocrols. Then everyone can shut up about it. Finding loopholes are annoying.

Reply Dark-Chaos, January 24th, 2007, 2:31 am

This is all asuming Light Bots are even Asimov Bots and are programmed with the three (or even the forth, Zeroth) Law.
Of course with that Zeroth law Roll could just get out a gun and shoot Wily in the head. That law of robotics tends to be one of my favourites. Remember, the priority laws are the lower numbered ones. They take priority before the others.

Brooms are here to destroy the world! Especially titanium handled brooms! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

In the jp version of megaman 7 I think megaman was not about to kill wily, he was reminded that he could not harm a human.

But in any case... in the mega shows that use to come on ABC family's made in japan block, roll actualy fought on near even grounds with a robot master. Her arm turned into a vaccum and she shot stuff at him...

@mic:Megaman had gone over the edge and was about to kill Wily, when debris landed around Wily, shaking the building and jarring Megaman back to his senses. the first law then clicked in his head. I saw that in the show BTW. I laughed my head off.
