Mega Man CX is a ROM Hack. See ROM Hacks

Mega Man CX (Rockman CX in Japan) is a Japanese, ROM-hack of the NES Capcom game Mega Man 2 (known as Rockman 2 in Japan), created by Zenkaku Himajin.

The hack has the player play as a grey coloured clone of Mega Man made by Dr. Wily to defeat Dr. Light. It takes inspiration from the Mega Man X series and features characters from other games like Super Mario and Bomberman that take the roles of the 8 bosses.

Premise Edit

Dr. Wily, being fed up with him losing Dr. Light's robot hero, Mega Man, he creates a clone of him, Mega Man CX, to do his bidding. CX encounters Guts Man who claims to be working for Light. He is rescued by Quick Man after destroying him and coming in close contact with Mega Man. They are given orders to destroy the 8 robot masters made by Light.

Playable Characters Edit

  • Mega Man CX
  • Quick Man

Gamplay Edit

The game plays much like Mega Man 2, but with an added dash ability (similar to Bass's dash from Mega Man 10). The player's normal buster shoots rapidly much like Bass.

The hack also has a player swapping ability, similar to Mega Man X3, where the player can switch to another playable character (Quick Man) during a stage.

  • There are two different English translations of the game; the unofficial and official translation.
    • In the official translation, most of the dialogue was taken straight from the Mega Man X series
  • The letters 'CX' could mean 'Classic X', a reference to the hacks classic tone with MMX gameplay.
