    I thought it would be a good time to start a poll to get a good idea of what people thought. Here's how I envision he'd be different from Mega Man:

    Lower weapon shots (just like now)
    A working shield against projectiles
    Double knockback when hit
    No Rush Marine analog

    No. Yes if he gets his own weapon set from Mega Man 3 and 5.

    Do we really need three Mega Man characters? Two is plenty.

    So? This is a game can always be updated to have more characters. If he doesn't get in the way for new characters I don't see why not. If he has the same weapon set as Mega Man and Bass then he isn't worth it.

    While additional weapons would be awesome as we previously discussed, Crownjo, I don't want that to prevent him from being added because extra weapons take a long time to program.

    So far what he has isn't enough to be his own character. Not trying to be mean but it really is that way.

    Proto Man and Bass needs their own weapon sets someday.

    I agree they should have their own weapon sets eventually. Proto Man has almost the same number of differences to Mega Man as he does to Bass. I just feel if they give Link a working shield they can do the same thing for Proto Man which is different enough to make him a separate character.

    I support this.

    After playing with the Proto Man skin's lower shots, I support this, if he gets his own weapon set.
    Even though I voted no on the poll. :p
    (Is there any way to change your vote on the poll?)

    Didn't know either of them had Rush Marine.

    Whenever Rush Marine is added to MM, Proto Man doesn't have anything similar.

    I said yes even though I kind of don't care either way but in a way I do.

    I do if new abilities as working shield is added and double knock back but other than that I'm happy the name appears different rather than saying just Mega Man. Besides I'd rather see more important stuff like Lost Levels and especially Special. But if it's an easy fix for Jay also yes.

    I prefer to see the existing characters completed and new levels added before anything else. My argument is if Link is given a working shield, similar programming can be used for Proto Man's shield.

    After watching gameplay footage of Proto Man from MM9, I discovered one major difference between his shield and Link's: It reflects projectiles completely back to the enemy! Link's shield doesn't do this. So, Proto Man can use Bowser's fire breath against him and hit the Hammer Bros with their own hammers!

    Lol yeah that is true, which would be really handy btw... I hate that bowser.. XD, But in games like smash bros melee, link's shield reflects or stops nearly all projectiles :p

    Maybe so, but Link's and Proto's shield should only be based on their 8bit games.
