Shadows of Wily by Hakuramen Shadows of Wily by Hakuramen
Partner piece to "Legacy of Light": [link]

This is Dr. Wily's legacy: spanning Classic to X to Zero to ZX series. His cast shadow is also meant to form a cackling mad scientist. This was actually drawn around the same time as the previous piece but it took me much later to get around to coloring it. I hope my coloring has improved since then.

There is another version I was coloring where I partially grayscaled Dr. Wily's shadow for a more uniform ominous appearance of his cast shadow, but I was undecided on which was better. I decided the full colors work better here but if you want to see the other version, I can upload it as well.

Able to name all the characters? Comments and critiques are appreciated!

Mega man belongs to Capcom.

Probably Snake Man-- considering I have a soft spot for the MM3 game.

ah, I like metal because he is the only good robot master, and he gives a good weapon.

In the end, he made a great hero. That's ironic for an antagonist who planned conquering the world (many times).

Because he created Zero who became one of the staunchest defenders of humanity and reploids alike? An ironic but interesting fate indeed.

Makes you wonder what would happen if Wily actually revealed himself in the X series and that X is actually an upgraded and rebuilt version of Mega Man. I know the last part's just my personal preference, but it would make a compelling story that lasts hundreds of years. Besides, despite what TVTROPES.com says about X's name, I don't think it would make much sense if Light named his final "child" after an earlier "sibling".

WILY does have the greatest legacy in video game history.

I think he is the virus all the long and he has been reincarnate himself over the years.

I actually have an idea for a game where Wily makes an actual, antagonistic appearance in the X series with a destructive and manipulative plan to get Zero on his side and to have his ultimate revenge on Light and his creations by not only conquering the world, but by unleashing a virus that would specifically target X's physical and mental designs on a worldwide scale. And considering that the Reploids are X's proverbial descendants, you can expect the results. Honestly, I think Light and Wily both have the greatest legacy in video game history. Partly because I can't think of anyone else with an equal or greater legacy and partly because they're both responsible for the events surrounding the main series. Their conflict between each other was the story for the originals, their greatest creations were the forebears of an even more advanced race of sentient machines and a destructive archetype of that race. The great devastation and strong feelings of prejudice made Zero and ZX write themselves.
