Like Dr. Wily said, did you really believe that he would expose himself if he thought for even a second that he would be in any danger?

So thats what Treble was doing, too bad it was too late to save Bass. I hope Treble manages to survive the next 5 minutes, it would be a real shame if the entire cast gets killed off this time.

Wait a minute... I thought Dr. Wily was aware of and had taken care of treble!

While I'm well aware that Asimov's laws aren't used in the Megaman universe, if I remember correctly, at the end of one of the Megaman games didn't Doctor Wily tell Megaman he couldn't kill a human?

Actually, they are, as would be obvious to anyone who had watched the full intro to the first Mega Man X game, where it says that X is unique in that he can choose to disobey said laws.

At the end of Mega Man 7, Dr. Wily does his usual begging routine to which Mega Man replies and I quote with grammatical errors intact, “I don't trust you, Wily! I gonna do what I should have done years ago!!” and he points his buster at Wily who replies “You forget, Megaman. Robots cannot harm humans...”

At this point the story deviates depending on whether your playing the English or Japanese version. In the Japanese version, Mega Man stops and does nothing. (Apparently, I don’t read Japanese.)

In the English version though Mega Man continues and says, “I am more than a Robot!! Die Wily!!” Then the building starts to collapse and Wily is buried in some ruble before Bass and Treble teleport in. As Treble teleports out with Wily, Bass scolds Mega Man for hesitating.

So in theory, Mega Man was programmed not to harm humans, but could have been able to overcome his own programming. Of course, apparently he hesitated too, which could mean that despite his ability to overcome his programming he still holds life in high regard, and couldn’t bring himself to do it. It’s just my theory of course, you’re free to make your own.

As for Mega Man X, the intro only states that X has the ability to think and make decisions on his own, and therefore there is a danger that X might break the first laws of robotics. Therefore X must be sealed away in order to confirm his reliability. It only mentions the first law, and merely shows that Dr. Light was concerned he would break it, it does not say that he programmed X to be able to break it. It’s quite possible that Dr. Light programmed the same safety locks into X that he might have in Mega Man, but was worried that X’s free will could overcome those locks. Once again, it’s just my theory and you’re free to make your own.

I always thought that due to the text in Megaman X, Dr Light did program at least one of the Laws into his robots, and Wily's statement in Megaman 7 seemed to confirm the same law. So it seems probably that Light's robots have the first law. But as we know Rock was upgraded into Megaman and seemed to have quite a different personality from the others, that he may of had some kind of program that may have been a prototype for X's. Of course of all this only one thing is for certain. Capcom wrote the story... so we can't expect to make sense of it. Or at least not easily.

from most of what I've read (i tend to avoid capcoms explanations as they tend to be contradictory or not as good as others I've heard) X is based of mega man in appearances and arcatecher but he is a completely different person, but yeah from everything I've gathered chaos is right everything light made befor X had atleast teh first law of robtics ingrained and could not override this one law, the other laws (if they even were programed in) appear to be optional, although i would say that given they way all of lights robots behave they have at least the first and third laws intact with the second being optional

Why is Wily saying that in
the last panel?

Reply V Overlord (Guest), March 22nd, 2007, 7:49 pm

Isn't Light supposed to say
that in
the last panel?

Reply RyanMC, March 22nd, 2007, 9:55 pm

No, it's actually supposed to be Wily speaking remotley through the clone stating that he was surprised Treble didn't come to kill him at the fortress. It never even occured to me that the line was also applicable to Dr. Light... I've reworded it to make it a little more obvious.
