That's some great info. I had no idea he was in over 100 games. I knew it was a lot but jeeze! The early ones on NES were always my favorites. Recently tore through a couple on the Saturn but only to test out some hacks. A lot of fun anyway and although not considered what I'd deem from the original games, they sure had their moments :) Thanks for another invaluable post.

You're welcome.  I figured it would be cool to do a series of "History of..." posts with videos from The Gaming Historian and others.  I got a few others aligned.  ;) 

I must say I was also quite surprised to learn Mega Man (or Rock Man) is in so many games!

Flipping hell, over 100 games, i was thinking like 20 odd lol.. Unreal how this title just keeps going..

I agree that the earlier versions are clearly the best but that happens on many game titles.

Mega Man 2 was my first game, and the one I identified with all throughout my childhood. Can't wait to watch the video when I get home from work. :)
