Rejected Mega Man Villains XIII

by Steve Napierski to Comics

Since Capcom hasn’t hired me to create an actual Mega Man robot master yet (hint, hint) I decided to create a few more Rejected Mega Man Villains.

Update: This comic in now appearing on the official Capcom blog [1]. That’s really awesome. You know what’s even awesomer? Letting me design an actual robot master. Call me!

While I was creating this, I realized that Recycled Man could actually make a decent villain. And in case you are wondering which robot masters he’s recycled from: Quick Man’s head (Mega Man 2), Heat Man’s turso (Mega Man 2), Drill Man’s left arm (Mega Man 4), Slash Man’s right arm (Mega Man 7), Charge Man’s right leg (Mega Man 5) and Uranus’ left leg (Mega Man V). There’s no real rhyme or reason to which parts I chose beyond variety.

Nega Man is pretty self explanatory. And then there’s Soapy Man…

Last week, my four year old daughter was looking at the Mr. Masters (poster). A couple days later she came up to me and said, “Daddy, I created a new comic for you. He’s called Soapy Man. He has soap on his head and a squiggly mouth.”

Soapy Man

So I decided to take a picture of it with my iPhone and turn it into an actual Rejected Mega Man Villains. In fact, her showing me that is the entire reason that I created this new batch of Rejected Mega Man Villains. I also wanted to note that he’s pink because that’s her favorite color. The end.

    I have to say, Soapy Man bears a striking resemblance to PomPomBom from the Dragon Quest series.

  • Shenny

    Heh, Magnadoodle. I remember those.

  • Rabite

    Soapy Man’s soap bar reminds me of Fight Club.

    is the recycled man’s quote a deliberate reference to the “The Critic” starring Jay Sherman?

      Dude, I’ve seen that episode of The Critic quite a few times. I didn’t even think about it when I put the quote in the comic. Though in reality, I might have quite possibly been remembering it when I thought of it. Still works, though.

    That kid’s got talent! :)

  • Triaxx

    Awesome. I know I couldn’t draw that good. (Still debatable whether I can or not.)

  • BigLord

    LOLOL@Nega man’s warcry/catchphrase.

  • Jarrett

    Soap man would actually be useful in a kid mega man video game where he wants to avoid taking a bath!

  • Jazzypants

    I saw someone on that blog say “URR I LIKED NEGA MAN ‘TILL I SAW WHAT HE SAID. N-WORD BAD” Yeah, and? He said NEGA. THAT’S THE FUCKING JOKE. God, people today have to walk on eggshells.

      Not me and tomorrow’s comic will prove that. :grin:

      • Jazzypants

        I am SO looking forward to this. XD

  • Jazzypants

    Also, I think it’s awesomely funny that they saw Soapy Man as legit. XD Hey, he can’t be any worse than Clown Man or Strike Man, both robot masters I DESPISED.

    I’ve got to agree with the other people here that your daughter has talent.. I don’t think I ever walked away from drawing stickfigures until I was seven.. Got to love that soapy man. :D
