Dr. Wily (Dr.ワイリー, Dokutā Wairi) is the main antagonist of the Mega Man series.

Character Description

Dr. Wily is the antagonist of the main series Mega Man games. Formerly a colleague of Mega Man's creator Dr. Light, the two had a falling out, resulting in Dr. Wily reprogramming six of Dr. Light's robots, which Mega Man eventually fought. Since then, he had created his own robots and has built many fortresses in which he's the final boss, and at the end of every single game he always ends up on his knees and begs Mega Man for mercy, although most of the time he still escapes.

Dr. Wily's first appearance inside the Wily Capsule was in Mega Man 4, and since then, it has been part of his final battle, with the exception of Mega Man 11.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Dr. Wily appears as a trophy in both versions of the game.

Trophy Description

"A mad scientist from the Mega Man series who develops deadly robots to try and take over the world. He's not above stealing the robots made by other scientists and modifying them for his own evil ends, either. Dr. Wily has a tendency to beg for forgiveness when Mega Man inevitably defeats him; those tears don't look all that genuine, honestly..."
