Here's a bit of a Rockman Corner exclusive for you. A little while ago I received a nice packet of official Mega Man: Fully Charged character profiles and art. While I can't share the artwork at this time, I do have permission to drop a few character profiles on ya. So today we're only looking at Mega Man, the members of the Light family, and Sergeant Night. Sorry; I gotta leave you with some surprises!
Aki Light aka Mega Man
"An enthusiastic robot with an action-seeking mischievous side. He seeks the good in everyone, but he's no saint. Aki is learning to be be a boy and a hero both in his daily life and as Mega Man. He is bright, confident, fun and curious. He can definitely feel confusion, anger and shame, but these are rare extremes. When he absorbs the power of a defeated enemy, he takes on aspects of their personality that enhances his own and force him to deal with their emotions as they manifest in his mind and affect his daily existence.
In a flurry of computer code and visual pyrotechnics, latent programming awakens inside of Aki. Aki's skin re-forms into a suit of impenetrable nanocore armor and the signature Mega Man helmet forms around his head! Aki's mind is flooded with battle-mode tactics, weapon system arrays and schematics to fully charge the Mega Buster canon arm!"
"No bigger than a cricket, Mega Mini is Mega Man's onboard repair unit and external conscience drive. He has a biting, often rude sense of humor, and he's funny as heck.
With his home base located inside Mega Man's helmet, Mega Mini easily moves through Mega Man's body to repair and analyze his circuity. From time to time he unexpectedly pops out of various access hatches in Mega Man's armor to act as his pit crew and sounding board.
He is Mega Man's partner and confidant, allowing our hero to talk to himself in order to sort things out!"
"Rush is the Light family's robot hound and Aki's lifelong friend. While Rush possesses many useful robot features he is first and foremost a dog. Rush is not fully aware of good and evil, he think that everything is a game to be played in order to obtain a treat!
Just as Aki transforms into Mega Man, Rush undergoes a transformation of his own. Rush is always on hand for a quick "power up", like the spring in his back that allows Mega Man to jump to the highest rooftops in Silicon City! Rush's legs can transform into jets and tank treads, allowing Mega Man to ride Rush on land, sea and air."
"Part adventurer, part scientist, all father. Dr. Light has walked some hard paths in his life, but has come out of it a charismatic optimist.
Dr. Light is confident about all things science, less so about social situations. However, he is no "bumbling scientist" – more of a semi-retired Indiana Jones who hates when he has to dress up for a gala.
He has unlimited affection for his children and is a great father who lets them make, and learn from, their own mistakes. He knows that Aki is Mega Man, but is playing along with Aki's "secret identity" until the time is right. He is wise but not "old", kind but not soft. He's gregarious and charismatic until he has to take charge of a situation – then he's brave and resolute."
"Suna, Aki's sister and human daughter of Dr. Light is an adventurous spirit. Her father taught her that anything is possible, so she has grown up to be an optimist with the eye of a scientist.
She is smart, fun-loving and not afraid to get her hands dirty. Suna often plays the realist to Aki's unbridled optimism, but she is not cynical. She is bright, intelligent, and confident, but above all very human. She has a high tolerance for nonsense, but when danger threatens her friends and family, she is fiercely protective."
"Sgt. Night is cold and direct, but does manage a certain charm – until he's angry, then the militaristic barking of orders begins. Part man and part machine, Sgt. Night is the remnant of a forgotten conflict between humans and robots.
He wants revenge on a world he believes betrayed him – most especially the Light family, and Mega Man. A smooth but direct villain, Night is charismatic enough to persuade followers and manipulate robot minions without the need for force. However, at the drop of a hat he changes: a would-be emperor.
Commanding. Defiant. Bold. He knows loss and wears it like a cold suit of armor."
