Doodle A Day: Day 45 Gyro Man
With Wood Man you look at him and think Dr. Wily had to be really low on money to build a robot out of wood, but Gyro Man is an actual example of what happens when Wily is low on cash. Gyro Man was originally going to have a rocket propulsion system for flight, but because Wily had no money left, he had to fit Gyro Man with a propeller instead.
I guess 5 attempts at world domination don’t come cheep, but you have to wonder where Wily is getting his funding from in the first place? He’s a renowned criminal, it’s not like he can go into a bank and ask for a loan, or get a part-time job at Wal-Mart.
In the manga Mega Man MegaMix, Wily whores the Robot Masters from Mega Man 5 out to an amusement park as part-time workers to fund his projects. But surly 8 robots working on part-time wages isn’t enough to fund a whole world domination plot. So where does Wily get his funding from?
