Imagining the Possibilities of Mega Man Universe

Mega Man Universe is definitely one of the more unique Mega Man games to come by in a while. Among praise and criticism, one thing is for sure: it will be interesting. One facet of this is the game's selection of playable characters, even including those outside of the Mega Man, ahem, universe. So far we know of Mega Man, Rockman, Bad Box Art Mega Man and Ryu. Likely to join them are Arthur, Cut Man, and the cast from Mega Man 2. And it's indicated the roster will become quite vast. Chances are we may come to learn of more characters from the Tokyo Game Show in just a couple days, but I couldn't resist the urge to consider what other characters would be like if they fell into the world of Mega Man Universe. TMMN staffer Gelgameth graciously lent a hand toward my thought experiment, as we dreamed up what some characters might be like in the game, from expected candidates to more far out ones.
