Mega Man x...? by Manganiac Mega Man x...? by Manganiac
Possible Spoiler?...
always had this "fanfic" in mind but never got guts to do it...
well, I dont know what Mega Man and X's fans think about it, but I sure like to get this picture in mind ^^

Sorry for the Background...

Mainly for Series' fans:
As far as I am aware, Capcom has never yet told what happens betwen Classic MegaMan/RockMan and Mega Man X's History, so fans can have their own ideas, some think that X is a upgraded MegaMan/RockMan, others that, he is simply a new Reploid created by Doctor Light/Right.
Well, THIS is my idea ^^
personaly I find that mostly all about Bass/Forte matches MegaMan X better than any other character from the series.

* Forte isn't really a pacifist like MegaMan, Pretty much the hunter type, just like the Maverick Hunter X
* Forte is the only one from his time that uses an armor (pretty much like the one of X)
* Forte is the only one that also carries Crystals in his set.
* Forte is the only one of his time who's got the Dash ability (pretty comon for characters from the X and ahead)
* Although in small sizes, quite often Forte's helm's Blades come back with X's new Armors
* Although Forte is also known from his misteryous Purple Energy, at the end of "MEGA MAN THE POWER FIGHTERS 2" , if you finish the game with Forte and DUO, Duo tells the most unusual thing about Forte, he says that he senses the same Power of Justice in Forte like that of Mega Man.
* Not only Forte didn't faint to the mysterious Purple Energy (like MegaMan did at the End of MegaMan 8), according to DUO, Forte could have also converted that Energy...? Perhappes...

BUT!! Why is Him Blue??... Well if you Played RockMan and Forte (MegaMan and Bass) you know that Forte can't Charge his Buster. In this fanfic, it suposes that his inner power is 2 strong, and if he would do that, it'd blow his own Buster away. But after going thro a lot of psycological issues with MegaMan's faint and the world about to be taken over Doctor's Willy new Creation, Forte remembers what Protoman (Blues) told him (at the end of both Power Fighter and RockMan & Forte) that Rockman has allways been stronger than him cause Rock fights to protect.
(I'm telling these cause I doubt I'll ever make this fanfic)

By the Way, although that right arm at the left side... it isn't really Zero... it's his Body though ;)

Zero killed everyone. The..end.

Inafune has stated that such a thing never happened.

If you watched the Day of Sigma, you would see how he was created :)

Wrong theory, Bass is a complete different character and X was created by Dr.Light part by part...
CrysaliteCrystal Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2014   General Artist
Crystal: Your not hurting Zero on my watch! (charges into Forte and they both start fighting)
Zero: errr

WHAT IN THE... :o MIND. BLOWN. My brain hurts.

If you turn Forte's helmet Jewel by 45 degree, it becomes a X.

Whaaaaaaaaaa...Icon Sonic Boom Is this TRUE?!?! Awesome!!!
AmatuerScoots18 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
that is a very interesting theory, but the one funny thing is, Forte sounds a lot different from X, especially in X4. But X's voice in that one is my favorite.

Did you hear about that theory that Rock would later become Vile??
acetheforbidden Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013
I love this back story to the point where you explained the similarities between Bass & X. It sounds legit and a highly reasonable theory. I know hardcore MM & MMX fans must after your throat for this but they have to just relax and realize this is just a Fan-made theory. But Alas , I love this deviation. It's going to my favs :)
faygo69 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
i love the idea and u have valid points
IgnisFotia Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I always thought that X's designs were based off of Bass (non of his personality) because Bass can decide to NOT obey the Asimov's Law, unlike other Robots; so in a way, Bass is a primitive Reploid and X's prototype.
hklg Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2011
Bass knows how to dash before X learns it in Chill Pingouin's stage.
I don't think there's any connection between X and Bass.
Great work though.
Raven-Firewind Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011
Yeah, they really did leave it up to fans to guess what happens between Megaman-Megaman X. I wrote a 'fic on it, myself. XD Old now, but some people still favourite it now and again. O_O;

This is a cool picture. ;)
FireAnonymous Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011
I really like your idea.Though some points aren't match:
1.Bass can charge his buster, willy examine Protoman structure, Protoman has that ability->Bass has it too,(it's only a gameplay).Btw, Willy has experience in making dangerous fighters, and he has do some upgrade on bass(it's possibe that he use some chip to decrease bass power).
2.In Maverick hunter X remake, the progress of making X showed that X was a totally new design of dr Light, the way dr Light look at X remind us some father-son relationship(my opinion, hehe).
3.Forte is not the only one has "dash", protoman has the same move, another robot master is Shadow.
4.The nature of Bass is become "1st robot", he hate Megaman because he want to stronger than him but he doesn't want to harm human (endling of Bass and MM)
Well, they are my opinions, but i agree with you at some point that Bass is X in future.
1.Bass has independence, similar to X
2.Bass design is unique at his era.
3."X" means Mystery, but also means "cross between". what does it mean?
We may never know what happened in the past, but we can sure that Bass, Megaman had fought Zero!!! In X era, Zero and X become close friend, their relationship has some link from these old days??? And, to end my long arkward ideas: How X' upgrade capsule always appears when he fights? A survivor in Classic era help him???but Who?Protoman or Roll?

It would be awesome, if not for the fact that X was a project of Dr. Light, with the express intent of having feelings and emotions and decision-making. Light had X deliberately sealed for a minimum of 30 years (obviously had to wait a lot longer on that.)

X's origins are a lot less interesting than this. But awesome idea.
maciekfga Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011
Wow, it makes sense... and it's awesome!
Great pic!
Mopbrothers Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2010
That's tight! Forte has become RockMan X and he's fighting Zero.

I'd read this fanfic if it is ever written. Sounds really good.
suppernova Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010
It does, no question. But alas, the MMX series makes it impossible..
MMX and Zero can find Dr Light capsules in every MMX game. But if Zero gets the upgrade, Light says that he knows nothing about Zero's body structure and hence cannot give him any upgrade (because Zero is the final creation of Dr Wily).
Now Bass is another of Wily's creations, so if Bass would turn into MMX, Light couldn't upgrade him.
I rather think it was the other way around - Mega Man defeated Bass and since he gets something whenever he defeats a robot master, he adopted some of Bass's personality traits.

Epic Fail.

Also! I'm new here and I am working with 8-bit style art of Forte and other customized characters. I'm doing good so far and I will release a few pictures prolly some time by this weekend. I hope you wait untill I'm done.
LunarZetsu Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010   Digital Artist
Lol wow, I read the low comments and I must say...
I am very dissapointed..
Check this out. In the Power fighter games DR.WILY gives up hope on Bass (Forte) because he discovered a energy called "Bassinum". With this he was on a new project. "Zero". So Bass is a prototype. Also! It took WILY exactly 100 years to finish this. The gap on how he lived that long is weird but hey look at Dr. Light (Dr.Right). Still there in the MMX 1,2 & 3. SO, in which being completely possible for him to have made Zero. In the MMX4 game theres a cut scene where Zero is in a Capsule and wakes up. And DR.WILY is standing before him. SO PEOPLE Play your games then challenge your knowledge.

Actually, disregard the previous comment, you got pretty much everything wrong, but I don't think it matters since your comment is 3 years old, so you probably know by now
HellHawkX9990 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013
You got everything right, except for the start, Bass is the one that is using Bassinium as the source of energy, noticing anything? BASSinium, and in japan it's called FORTEnium.

Mega Man X IS a pacifist dummy. Hence why he has issues with fighting and why when he changes into a cyber-elf he finally gets to rest.
AsuraThePirate Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
He isn't talking about Megaman X. He's referring to the Megaman before X.
Barugaron Featured By Owner May 9, 2009
i thought forte and bass were two different people
Shiolily Featured By Owner May 13, 2014  Student General Artist
No, They are just different names for the same character. The name varies from region.

If you ever saw the American version of the Mega Man cartoon series, they show X and he tells Mega Man something about X being him in the future.
Adrian-Tepes Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2008
I like this. Yet I always thought it was Zero that killed Mega Man because at the end of "Power Battles 2" If you beat the game with Bass/Forte it show Dr Wily built Zero. I know this is a fan art and I really do like it. Just thought I would throw my 2 cents in there. Anyway great pic
mecha-shadow Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2008
Holy crap, I never really thought about that before, I always assumed X was Rock upgraded or something. *now has ideas floating in her head*
MegaMac Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2008
Grenade Man is another classic character that has the ability to dash. Also, MegaMan X is a total pacifist. He hates fighting. But, that is a very big twist and very well thought out. Good work!

Nice theory, though it is explicitly stated that Dr. Light created X. Maybe he used data from Bass to create X? But, unlike Bass, X is a pacifist.

You know, I never really thought of Forte being X.... But hey, I like the idea and the pic you made is strong evidence to back up your theory ^^ Btw, awesome pic ^^

if you break off bass' fins of his helmet he does kinda look like x

Interesting idea. Although how would you explain how X was sealed away for a long time, and how would you explain the cosmetic differences?

If you don't want to, I'd write that fanfic :P
IKnowItAllNerds Featured By Owner May 1, 2007
it has been stated that Megaman X is NOT Megaman, Dr. Light confirmed this due to the fact that he knew the Original Megaman was going to be defeated by Dr. Wily's new robot, which was Zero, see the movie. Dr. Wily stated many times that Zero was going to be the most powerfules trobo he ever created, and when Bass saw the development of Zero, he laughed and said "it looks like a girly robot."

this is just a fanfic, I don't care for Rock-Man's story much...
IKnowItAllNerds Featured By Owner May 1, 2007
There is alot of evidence that Zero destroyed Bass and the Original Megaman, watch the Megaman X Movie, it explains alot.
Ianistheman Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
There's a movie? Where can I find it.

Very similar to an idea I have thought up. A +fav is due now. *does so*
TheComrade Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2007
Nice pic and nice fic. I've given some thought to the similarities as well (though never did think of them being one and the same). The way I see it, Forte was the first step in building an advanced reploid, such as Zero (Wily's subsequent creation), and thus possesses many of the features common in reploids (such as modular enhancements and the ability to dash). The interesting thing is that Wily may have survived into the X timeline (as has been hinted at in the X games). This begs the question, "Who else has survived?"
