    You're taking it too literally. I meant Proto Man was the token cool red guy with long fabric and/or hair hanging behind him before Zero was. Like Viewtiful Joe, or the red Power Ranger, or a red Boba Fett.

    actually bass has more in common with protoman

    bass is wily's "proto-type" original robot and zero is his "perfected" version

    Did Wily steal Proto-Man's schematics, or something? Because Zero looks almost just like Proto-Man. Only real differences are no visor, spiked helmet, and hair instead of a scarf.

    If I'm recalling it correctly.. Wily temporarily repaired Proto Man, somewhat, and added in some upgrades.. so it's quite possible that he could have made schematics while doing so.

    Indeed he did. Dr Wily actually saved his life by changing his core to nuclear. As well as he gave upgrades to Proto Man and turned him into a battle robot. So basically his weaponry actually comes from Dr. Wily (he even got his shield from Wily too if I know correctly).

    Omg dude, MMV weapons would be amazing!! But the grab buster would be useless since there's no health in SMBC.

    Mushrooms? Other power-ups?

    Maybe neither of you meant it this way, but just in case, Grab Buster doesn't grab items, it steals items from enemies. I suppose it could potentially steal coins from enemies, or weapon energy pellets, but stealing Mushrooms wouldn't make sense (you would have to have a Mushroom in order to use Grab Buster) and stealing other power-ups would be too good.

    I never played any of the gameboy games, so I didn't know that.

    If it only steals weapon energy pellets then what's the point of it compared to the buster? You'd get infinite energy return so you can just keep using it except you can't do a charge shot like the buster.

    Let it steal coins. That seems the best option.

    Assuming the Grab Buster is used, of course.

    No. Mega Man and Bass are enough. If you want Proto Man, pick one of them to remove. Three is overkill. I said the same thing for Zero. Three is too many.

    Agreed. Proto Man really works just fine as a Mega Man skin.

    On the double damage thing, maybe he could have one hit point, like Bill? Definitely make a good counter for the shield.

    Here's an idea to go with the classic Megaman thread. Have MM default without charge/slide, make Protoman a separate character only if he gets a working shield, and make current MM with charge/shield an option like Classic Simon and Samus.

    It's been a while and I had an idea regarding skins. Of course, Break Man will be one. His evil alternate skin could be the shield wielding Sniper Joe.

    I am surprised you still remember the Classic Mega Man and Mega Man idea. Your idea is good but the big flaw is Proto Man's Shield. In this game it would be kinda useless since you would have to jump to use it. It would work against Bowser's flame and maybe the hammers. But the attacks aren't anything like the Mega Man games.

    As far as alternate versions go. Here are simple solutions for MM 1/2 Mega Man, Zelda II Link and SMB3 Mario.

    1: Make them separate characters but will not take space for new characters.
    2: Make it a option to toggle them in the main menu before you start the game.

    I personalty like 1 the best because you can mix the characters up in co-op. Plus it's only a good idea if Classic MM, Mega Man and Bass gets their own weapons.
