Megaman 1 Pixelart Complete Works
So, Megaman 1. Here is my collection of beadsprites of characters from this iconic first game. DLN = Doctor Light Number. This is the serial numbers of each robot. DLN-P are for the prototypes.
Dr. Thomas Light
Dr. Light is the creator of several intelligent robots including series star Megaman. His sprite resembles Santa Claus.
Dr. Albert W. Wily
Brilliant mad robot scientist, Wily is apparently German and wants to take over the world. His sprite makes him look like Einstein.
Megaman himself, DLN-001
Megaman original NES sprite
Series hero Megaman was originally built to be a lab assistant to Thomas Light, who lived alone and had no family. It is perplexing that such a renowned scientist like Light would have no human apprentices, and this fact would weigh heavily on the the first century of Light’s final creation, X’s life, as once Light died, there would be nobody to carry on his work.
My beadsprite is simple and to the point. This sprite is probably around the 7th Megaman sprite I’ve made.
Again, since Light had no family or apprentices, Roll was built by Dr. Light to cook, clean and keep charge of general housework. Roll is regarded as Rock’s “sister” and her cute charm makes her a fan favorite. In her recent appearance in Tatsunoko vs Capcom Roll sports her retro Megaman outfit.
And yeah, Roll actually DID appear in Megaman 1, although only at the end of the credits and was unnamed. My sprite is the retro Megaman1 roll, recolored to match her iconic red dress she wore prior to Megaman 8.
Cutman original NES sprite
Cutman is a sprite I haven’t really bothered to go back and redo – he was one of the first sprites I ever did!
Gutsman is huge. This is also a custom sprite.
Iceman was built to explore the arctic. I really dislike his sprite and plan to make another custom one someday.
Bombman was built to clear away bedrock. I’ve always thought Bombman looks awesome. Too bad his time delayed weapon isn’t that great.
Fireman is a waste disposal robot. My Fireman sprite is a complete recolor to add in his gray instead of the white that the NES uses.
Timeman is a prototype robot that Light was working on to stop the flow of time. Timeman cannot do this, however; he can only slow time down. Wily later improved on Timeman’s design and created Flashman.
Timeman did not appear in the NES version of Megaman1. He was designed along with Oilman for the PSP remake, Powered Up. As such, this is a custom sprite made by the crew of Rockman 7 and & 8 FC. I improved the sprite colors to match the official art.
Oilman was created to……do something. I’m not sure what his purpose is. His weapon sucks to boot.
