In the year 200X (20XX in Powered Up), master designer Dr. Thomas Light worked to create a humanoid robot. This robot would demonstrate an advanced artificial intelligence program that would allow it to make decisions based on vague commands and directions.
With the success of these two test-type robots, Light designed and built six production-type robots, mainly to be used in the construction and maintenance of public works. These robots were Cut Man, a land reclamation robot; Guts Man, a construction and excavation robot; Ice Man, a robot designed for exploration in extreme freezing temperatures; Bomb Man, a mining robot designed to work with Guts Man; Fire Man, designed for waste management; and Elec Man, designed to oversee and control atomic energy power plants. The enhanced remake Mega Man: Powered Up has also retconned into existence Time Man, designed to research time travel with his ability to slow down time, and Oil Man, designed for maintenance by generating oil for machinery and firing it through his arm cannon. Each of these robots had full use of the Robot Master's intelligence and reasoning potential.
The time finally came for Dr. Light to be recognized by the world for his contributions to science. Dr. Albert W. Wily, an old colleague and rival, grew jealous when his unique research was utterly overshadowed by Dr. Light. He stumbled upon Proto Man one day, who was dying when his energy system was malfunctioning. He repaired him, using his specifications to create the police robot, Sniper Joe. That's when he realized that he discovered while analyzing Proto Man, he had found a way to reprogram Light's robots. He decided that he could use these new robots to exact revenge. When Dr. Wily arrived at near Dr. Light's laboratory soon after announcing his plans for world domination, he failed to realize Rock and Roll's potential, so he went to the lab without them, claiming that helper robots are as good as scrap metal to him. He took and reprogrammed the six (Eight in "Mega Man: Powered Up") construction robots so they became misled and forced under his rule. With his new followers, Wily seized control of the city and demanded recognition.
