Alright you MegaMan/Rockman lore masters, quick question for you: I keep a bunch of notes and papers detailing the mythology of the Blue Bomber's universe, and I just so happened to stumble upon a tidbit I never cited. Care to enlighten me where this came from? (i.e name of source book)
"Have any of you ever wondered why Wily designed a robot with long hair? It's the source of his enormous power. However, it is not the volume of said hair that matters, it's merely the length. Even going through many style changes and many different volumes, the length of Zero's hair is constant, as is Zero's power output. The only exception to this rule is during awakening (RMX5), but at that point, Zero's hair draws in more and more energy from the air, hence it floating.
Even more interesting, when Zero was sealed (X6 future sealing ending). His hair was cut off for safety reasons, if he woke up, he would be powerless. Hence Weil required the Omega body armor to make him strong again while still taking advantage of his immunities.
There is no proof for this in the games, you say? Not true. In Zero 3, Omega is clearly shown to regenerate his hair from nothing. Something he was incapable of doing 100 years prior due to him lacking the power of Dark Elf. Hence Omega not using the Zero body in Elf Wars-- It would have been suicide."
