Doodle A Day: Day 87 Concrete Man

At the outset Mega Man 9 appears to be your standard Mega Man plot.  8 new robots have gone berserk and it’s up to Mega Man to stop them and kick Wily to the curb once again.  But if you look at the story a little more Mega Man 9 is actually kind of a sad story and deals with somewhat mature themes for a Classic entry in the Mega Man series.

In Mega Man 9 the Robot Masters are not creations of Dr. Wily but instead industrial robots created by Dr. Light.  There is a law that every robot must have an expiration date attached to them and upon reaching their expiration date the robots are to be destroyed.

All 8 Robot Masters in Mega Man 9 have reached their expiration dates and with a big push from Wily decide to revolt against this law.  So when you fight the Robot Masters your not fighting them with their sole purpose being to help Wily take over the world, but rather you’re fighting them simply because they want to live.

So when you know the true motivations for the Robot Masters it’s hard not to feel a little guilty when you fight them when they’re really fighting for their right to exist.  But at the end of the game every Robot Master is given a new purpose in life, so at least it ends on a happy note.

As for today’s music selection there is no remix on Back in Blue for Concrete Man’s stage so instead I’m going to be playing a remix of the stage selection screen called Select Hop by Joshua Morse.
