DLN-001 (or DRN-001, depending on localization), Mega Man (or Rockman, depending on localization) is a Robot Master created by Dr. Light as Rock for the purpose of being a lab assistant. He serves as the main protagonist of the Mega Man series. During the events of Mega Man 1, Rock volunteered to become super-fighting robot, and was then named Mega Man (or Rockman). Mega Man was the only playable character in Mega Man Maker until the release of version 1.3.0.
As a playable character, Mega Man has no major gimmick to his design as opposed to the other characters. His Slide and Charge Shot can even be disabled to emulate controls of the earlier games in the series.
In the level settings menu, Mega Man has two settings specific to him - Charge Shot and Sliding. Enabling Charge Shot will allow Megaman to charge his Mega Buster before firing. The type of charge shot (from 4, 5, or 6) can also be set. Enabling Sliding will allow Mega Man to slide, which provides addtional mobility, as well as the ability to enter horizontal one-tile gaps.
Unlike other characters, he can have access to the Adaptors, special fusions with Rush to have a special power. Proto Man's replacement of Rush consists on Items, so he cannot fuse with them, and Bass' only fusion is the Treble Boost.
