Here's my tribute to the first Mega Man game I played: Mega Man II. Many thanks for all the support!

Background info about submission

This one took some blood and sweat, but I'm glad I finished it through. I decided to create this short after purchasing a digital drawing pad. I was dying to put my new toy to work and decided on doing a Mega Man short.

I veered away from my usual twisted humor and decided to make something that more NG peeps could appreciate. After some storyboarding, I started animating. This was truly a learning experience artistically and flash-wise. As you may notice, some scenes will look sharper than others. I also realize that some Mega Man elements are mixed (i.e. Mega Man X sound effects and Mega Buster weapon) but think of it as artistic liberties. Also, lots of people have complained about Mega Man's bleeding disorder. :) Again, I didn't think it would hamper the whole flash, but apparently it did for some. I'll definately reconsider that if I do another one.

Either way I hope you Mega Man fans are appeased and you general users are intrigued.

Also FYI, Martin Lastra is my favorite uncle who introduced me to Mega Man when I was a wee lad. Ain't that heartwarming?

Anyway, enjoy the movie.

Yep, this is certainly a great cartoon! I guess some animation doesn't quite hold up, but it's still awesome. It's mostly because of how well you treat the mythos. This really does seem like the perspective taken from the actual game. Granted, it would never get this bloody. It's loyal to its design.

The bosses don't have that much personality to a lot of people. You showed the expressions so well in this. It was quite unpredictable. My favorite part was when he was changing colors. The tension is built up so well there.

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Decent choreography in the scenes but the animation was terrible and inconsistent... lighting effects were off, some scenes looked flat, animation of limbs was just abysmal.

Inconsistencies to the series:

- Why is Mega Man's head modeled after his X upgrade? That's an entirely different series.
- Mega Man isn't a MAN, he's a robot. Why is he bleeding?
- Why is he panting and getting tired? He's a robot.
- He doesn't grow muscles when he charges up his Mega Buster... it's just a charged shot, not everything as to be a DBZ reference.
- He can't use two abilities at a time meaning he couldn't have planted a Crash Bomb on Quick Man's forehead while using the Flash Stopper.

It had everything you could ask for in a John Woo movie, which at the time of posting this video were all the rage but it falls flat due to poor animation and inconsistency to the universe of Mega Man. It's sad that this is voted so highly... if this is the best Mega Man can get on NewGrounds he truly is dead.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is by far one of the most revolutionary flash movies ever created. ESPECIALLY for 2004. Thus for a 10 Year Anniversary, I will give a VERY detailed review of the film.

Scene 1
Mega Man has finished getting through the area, unscathed. This shows that the player is very good at playing Mega Man II. Mega Man walks down the dark, dramatic hallway, and the door opens slowly. This is very good foreshadowing and storytelling. Such as when you start a film at the end and then answer why that is so.

Scene 2
Mega Man gets a Quick Boomerang thrown at him and quickly dodges it. lol quick
Then we are immediately introduced to Quick Man, a robot that, like his brothers, falls from the sky, lands, and does his pose. You incorporated so much from the game, that I wondered how I could buy Mega Man II. YOU EVEN LET HIM HAVE HIS SHINY BOOMERANG!! :D

Scene 3
So here we have Mega Man shooting at Quick Man and missing. This is normal. Quick Man dashes around like a madman, and Mega Man is then punched in the jaw, and spurts blood. Quick Man basically does this often. Mega Man immediately gets pissed and charges the Mega Buster. This was pretty cool to see, but weird at the same time, because he couldn't do this until Mega Man IV. Still, maybe this represents what the player's wishes are, or their anger as to getting hit. Quick Man dodges the blast, but not before his arm is laser'd. Quick Man throws another Quick Boomerang into Mega Man's shoulder, and Quick Man proceeds with his next attack.

Scene 4
Quick Man runs at top speed across the room at Mega Man, who is stuck to the wall by the speed weapon. Mega Man then switches his weapon to having Metal Blade, and fires, doing nothing. This is based off of fact. Mega Man, still unable to move, possibly representing the player's panic, switches swiftly to the Time Stopper. Mega Man then stops panicking and removes the 'rang from his shoulder and walks away. Quick Man lands to the ground, with the Crash Bomber still stuck to his head. He notices Mega Man somehow got to the opposite wall. Mega Man takes the final shot, and receives the Quick Boomerang.

Finishing Touches
You did very well, put in actual things from the game, AND you dedicated the film to a person; your uncle. I hope he saw this, because I know for a fact that he would be VERY proud. Rating?

Message from Dr. Light!!
