A while back, I wanted to write a short horror story (CreepyPasta) about a Megaman video game entitled "Megaman Wreckage". It would've been similar, in ways, to the world-famous NES Godzilla Creepypasta.
However, I decided to drop it quickly once I realized the scale of the pixel art was going to be more than I wanted to get into - with levels for each boss, tons of bosses, other original enemies, etc.
I produced 48 "Robot Masters". Here are the final eight!
Pest control master Tox Man lives for exterminating pests. Pests like Megaman! (OH NOES!) His shoulder blasters spray toxic clouds, as you'd expect.
Tropic Man is intended to resemble a palm tree, if that wasn't readily apparent. His head and "pecs" are coconuts. :hurr: Using his shield and spear cannon, Tropic Man would've defended Wiley's off-shore wealth repository.
Every time Megaman would hit Voodoo Man, ol' Megs would've taken the damage instead! The trick to defeating Voodoo Man would've been exploiting the supernatural connection by lining yourself up to get hit by passing lasers, which would in turn harm the boss instead of you.
Speed-Walk powers, activate! Walk Man would've resided in a boss lair with a moving floor. A treadmill of death. A deadmill, if you will.
Just like a real-world onion, Weep Man would've carried a "TEAR SHOT" that rendered Megaman a sobbing mess. During this time, he'd move slower in a stoop-shouldered slouch and would refuse to jump - because what's the point? Everything we love dies, anyway.
My final "favorite", Wreck Man is "master" of the robot master junkyard. This mish-mash of bits from defeated bots came to life (or online) randomly, and it's not clear if Dr. Wiley even knows he exists. Still, when Megaman would've needed to get "CRUSH BEAM" he'd have to pry it from this guy's cold, dead... servo? Is that a thing?
Here are all the bosses, in "select screen" form!
