The Misadventures of Tron Bonne "Gappori Guide" Scans Now Available

Following the release of the Rockman DASH 2 Final Digouter's File, we're delighted to share that high-quality scans of the elusive and long out-of-print "Tron Ni Kobun Gappori Guide" are now available on the Internet Archive. This preservation contribution comes from our friends 0xmortis and RockmanCosmo.

Just like the previous art books in the DASH series, the Gappori Guide is packed with concept art of various characters and mecha, including designs that were never fully realized. A good slice of the book also provides a behind-the-scenes look at Capcom HQ, with snapshots capturing the development team's workspace. Those famous life-size Servbot props make an appearance too. 

Please be aware that the scans are currently in their original Japanese format. The developer commentary throughout the guide will remain untranslated for now, but as always, if there's enough interest, a full scanlation project could be just around the corner. 

In the meantime, feel free to check out the complete guide here!


  1. It's truly amazing how much love and creativity went into Legends during its concept and development stages. So many nifty ideas and designs that didn't quite make it and all of this makes me wonder how it would have turned out had they been able to include everything.

  2. The one with the sad Servbot sitting alone at a table is oddly hilarious to me.

    1. F in the chat for sad servbot... he was stood up.
