100 Mega Man Villains Who Were Rejected for Being Too On-the-Nose

Since its debut in 1987, the Mega Man franchise has produced dozens of games and introduced over 80 of its iconic Robot Master Villains. These mechanical enemies that grant you their signature powers when defeated have been as much a part of the long running series as Rush, Dr. Wily, and even Mega Man himself. And while fans have rightly celebrated their favorite Robot Masters over the years such as Wood Man and Skull Man, did you know that there have been countless potential Robot Masters that were excluded from the series due to being incredibly on the nose?  We’ve gone through the old pitch docs and conceptual art and ranked our favorite 100 of these overly obvious opponents.
