                       Megaman Battle Network Story
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*WARNING...THIS STORY COVERS ALL BATTLE NETWOK GAMES AND INCLUDES MAJOR 
SPOILERS FOR MEGAMAN BATTLE NETWORK 3*

20 years before the setting of the game, Tadashi Hikari, grandfather of 
Netto(Lan) and Saito( Hub), was the top scientist in all of Japan, and probably
the world. After inventing networks and PETs, he embarked on his largest 
project to date, a prototype internet society that would link every network 
together, the basis of the future net society in which they all live. This 
prototype, called Proto (Alpha), had to be thoroughly tested and refined before
it would be ready for the world to use. And so for 10 years, it was studied and
worked on and put through all sorts of the most rigorous testing. Then, one 
day, all of the networks connected to Proto for testing were suddenly went 
haywire. After careful study, the scientists on the project concluded that it 
was not Proto which was glitched, but another project that the science labs 
were working on, the auto program navi project led by a brilliant young 
programmer named Cossack. The project had designed the world's first automatic 
navi, one that could carry all its own chips, access networks without human 
help, and even included a special Get Ability program Cossack had designed that
let the navi copy any chip or program and adapt it to himself. That navi was 
called Forte. However, because the timing of the testing of Forte coincided 
with the strange occurrence with Proto, the scientists blamed Forte. The 
project was deemed a failure and Forte found to be too dangerous, so sent the 
strongest Navis designed by the Officials, the Navi Elite Unit, to delete him. 
Just in time, Forte was able to save himself and escape, but he was horribly 
scarred from the battle (hence the cloak he wears to cover the wound). Ever 
since that day he had been wandering the net, fighting off viruses in daily 
battles for survival. Over time he collected the strongest powers he could 
find, challenging the most powerful navis on the net, determined that he'd one 
day gain the ultimate power, and sit in judgement of those pathetic humans who 
turned on him and cast him into the dark recesses of the net.

    Meanwhile, believing Forte to be gone, the scientists expected that the
problem with Proto would be solved. Really, it was on the beginning. For years,
a bug had been growing and multiplying inside Proto undetected, increasing in
power and even developing a sort of intelligence, a basic instinct. Like an
amoeba, it started absorbing and feeding off programs and navis, growing larger
and stronger. One day it showed itself, by devouring all the networks connected
to it. The scientists scrambled to find a way to destroy the bug anomaly, but 
it was too powerful for the current technology, all attempts only made the
situation worse. Another scientist, Dr. Urakawa, developed a powerful hindrance
program, Giga Freeze, that could potentially freeze Proto, but this cure turned
out to be potentially worse than the disease, since only the most powerful 
Navis could handle it, and one mistake in using it could freeze the entire net
forever. With his dream of networks becoming like a nightmare, Tadashi 
developed the "Guardian", a barrier which would contain Proto until a solution 
could be found. Feeling responsible, he attempted a daring operation that would
place his mind and even his soul into the Guardian, to watch over Proto 
personally and ensure his monster would never harm the world. Finaly, after 
about a week of devouring everything in sight, Proto's activity began to slow. 
Tadashi used the time to put his plan into action. It was a success, and Proto 
was contained. After the incident, which was later called the Proto Rebellon, 
Proto was sealed away into the highest level top secret in the science network,
protected by the tetra code, sealed away, they hoped, forever. Cossack, 
saddened by the failure of Forte, left the science labs and started an 
independant navi development company, which would later become one of the most 
successful in the world. The dangerous Giga Freeze was sealed far away from the
mainstream society by Dr. Urakawa into the enormous, shady network area known 
as the Ura Internet. Its obscurity would later make it a popular hangout for 
the criminal population of the net, for whom the original purpose of the area 
was unknown. The Giga Freeze would be protected by the Ura Rank navis, some of 
the strongest in the net. If ever a day came when the program would be used, 
only a navi who could climb the Ura ranks would be strong enough to use the 
program.

    Fast forward 10 years, to NetMafia Gospel. After failing in his attempt at
creating a Dream Virus to destroy his old rival's network society, Dr. Wily hid
out for a while to rebuild his ranks. One day in the net he came across a 
lonely boy who had lost his parents. The boy, Shun Obihiro, had become quite 
wealthy from his parents' death, but was angry at the world and lost in remorse
(remember the boy from Megaman battle network 2...the end boss kid). Wily saw 
an opportunity, and began manipulating the boy into doing his dirty work for
him. He convinced the boy that the world was corrupt, and that he should take
control of the net, wipe out the old ways and create a new order. At first 
Wily's plan was to use the boy to create chaos, but then Wily discovered 
information on Proto, and developed a new plan to use Proto to destroy the Net 
for him. But to break the Guardian program, it would require the assistance of 
an enormously powerful navi. He decided the legendary navi Forte, who could 
copy any power, was the perfect one for the job. Wily attempted to make his own
Forte by fusing bugs with special programs he had the boy gather for him. In 
fact, he sould be able to make as many Fortes as he wanted. However, this ended
in failure as well, as bug fusion could not create a true Forte, but instead a 
multibug organism with great but uncontrollable power. However, the attempt did
catch the attention of the real Forte, who took it upon himself to destroy the 
remaining copies of himself running around. Wily struck a deal with Forte to 
help him destroy the Guardian, convincing him that absorbing the Guardian's 
power would make him the strongest in the world. Although he cared little for 
Wily or his plots, the thought of such power was too tempting, and the two 
formed a wary alliance.

    Also around this time, the rumors circulating of the mysterious black navi
caught the attention of Dr. Cossack, who took it upon himself to find Forte and
stop him if he was really still out there.

*SPOILER*

    Skip a bunch and fast forward to the end of the game, Proto is stolen by
Wily and Proto Bugs have begun leaking out all over the net, creating paths to
blocked off systems, even into military computers around the world. However,
the core of Proto was still sealed. As Netto and his friends invade the WWW
base, Wily and Forte prepare to destroy the final Guardian and set Proto free.
Wily uses the Pulse Transmission System to plug himself into the net, and Netto
and Rockman come in after him. As they arrive, Forte shatters the Guardian with
his powerful Earth Breaker, and absorbs its power. Rockman and Forte do battle,
which Rockman wins. Forte is awestuck, but Wily is indifferent, remarking that
he was hoping the two would destroy each other, but no matter. He reaveals that
now that the Guardian was destroyed, Proto would flood the net, destroying the
network society and plunging the world into anarchy. He laughs as Proto absorbs
the battle-weakened Forte, but his joy is short lived when Proto swallows Wily
as well. Rockman and Netto use all their power to delete Proto, and to their
surprise, find a doorway where Proto stood. Inside, they meet the ghost of 
their grandfather, who had met them only when they were babies. After a 
heartfelt reunion, Tadashi gives them a letter to give to their dad before 
Proto begins to collapse. Confident that the future of the world is in good 
hands, Tadashi is finally ready to leave the mortal coil. He stays in the 
collapsing Proto while Lan and MegaMan make their way out. While pausing for 
only a moment, the two are swallowed by Proto, and Rockman decides to use the 
last of his power to blow Lan free and back to his body. He bids his brother 
goodbye, and Lan is expelled from the network. The others find him and the 
group returns for a reunion with family and friends. Meanwhile, Forte barely 
managed to escape death yet again, but this time he's extremely weak. To his 
surprise, he is found by Gospel, the wolf-like partial clone of himself, who 
had regenerated from bugs which were spread across the net after his initial 
destruction. More surprising, Forte realizes that the creature wants to help 
him, and the two are joined and begin to regenerate using bug power, forming 
the more powerful Forte GS.

    Weeks go by, and Lan is about to start the 6th grade. After going to sleep
on the day before beginning the new semester, his father arrives home with
Lan's new navi, which he installs into Lan's PET. When awakened the next
morning by a familiar voice, Lan is overwhelmed to see MegaMan alive and well
again, on a bright day of new beginnings.

                    What are these Stars and their purpose?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
These 7 Stars represent certain accomplishments you make in this game, as for 
doing things, beating certain people, and getting chips.  These things will be 
covered in the next topic.  As for their purpose, some of the stars open new 
areas of the game for you to explore, allow you to battle certain people that 
were not accesable before you get one, and again this will be covered in the 
next section.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                   Obtaining the Stars and Unlocking Secrets
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are 7 Stars total for you to collect (yellow, green, light blue, blue, 
purple, red, and orange). Here's how to get them:

Yellow Star: Defeat Alpha ----- 

Alpha (the main story boss) is kind of tough when you first meet him, so I 
would suggest using the MasterStyle PA (Salamander, Fountain, Bolt, GiaBlade).
Once you beat him, you'll view the credits and the title menu will come up, and
then you'll see your first star.	


Green Star: Defeat Bass GS -----

Now that you have your first star (the yellow one) you can enter the secret 
area if you have abtained atleast 100 standard chips, but you cant fight Bass 
GS yet. Once you make your way to the end of secret area 3, you'll encounter 
the door of honor, which Serenade is behind.  You must beat Serenade first 
before you can find Bass GS.  To get past the door, you must obtain all 200 
standard class chips.  Once you have defeated Serenade, head over to the bug 
frag trader in secret area 3, use it 30 times (or 300 bug frags total), then 
you will hear a loud growl (this one will cause megaman to say something). From
there, exit the secret area, and the undernet, then jack back in and head for 
the bug frag trader (there will be ghost navis at the end of each area telling
you of a great but evil power up ahead), when you reach the platform with the 
trader on it, save, then walk towards it and Bass GS will appear.  Beat him to 
obtain the Green Star. 


Light Blue Star: Beat Serenade's Time Trial ----- 

Once you have beaten Bass GS, you will then receive his chip(depending on the 
version you have), then take notice, there will be numerous undernet looking 
navis all over the secret areas. Each one of them has a beta series(v2) navi 
that is available for battle. Once you beat every navi you will receive the 
Dark Aura(blue) or Serenade(white) chip. But theres a catch. You have to beat 
each navi in a certain time limit using your extra folder. My advice would be 
to use the "N1FldrC", the one with the 3 snake chips, 4 panlout3 chips, and 2 
area grab chips. Equip the Fastguage NC Block and use the area grabs first, 
then use as many panlout3s as you can, then you can use the snakes (also note 
that the folder contains and attack +10 and a wood +30, so use them with the 
snakes). This may take a few times to get the hang of it, but beleive me, this 
does work.
				      

Blue Star: Obtain all 200 Standard Class Chips ----- 

This is obtained just how it states. You have to obtain all 200 of the Standard
Class Chips. (There are other FAQs for this and it would take up to much space
to put them here).
				     

Purple Star: Obtain all 85 Mega Class Chips -----

This again is obtain just how it states. Mega Class Chips are mostly Navi chips
and some others. V4 Navi chips ARE part of the Mega Class, and can be obtained 
by the V3 Navis if, and only if, you are using any form of the "team style," 
and beat that Navi in 20 seconds or less, and aquire and "S" busting level. 
Also note that V1-V4 Navi chips can be found in the bugfrag trader in secret 
area 3.


				     
*IMPORTANT*After you get the first five stars, the Omega (or SP) Navis will 
appear on the Net after you enter a special code on the opening screen. After 
obtaining five stars, highlight Continue at the title screen, hold left, and 
input this code (using the should buttons):  RRLRLRLL
The stars should move closer together. You can now find and fight the SP navis.



Red Star: Defeat all 15 Omega (SP) Navis -----

When you defeat these SP Navis you will receive their V5 Navi chips (these 
chips are considered Giga Class Chips). Here are the locations of all SP Navis:

FlashMan Omega: Principal's PC 2 
BeastMan Omega: Zoo Computer 3, where you found the DashRun NCP
BubbleMan Omega: Yoka Net 2, dead end (where you found an HPMemory)
DesertMan Omega: Top-right corner of the DNN Van
PlantMan Omega: dead end in Hospital Computer 3
FlamMan Omega: topleft torch in the area you fought his version one in 
Undernet 3
DrillMan Omega: Undernet 5 where you fought his version one
GutsMan Omega: bottom-left part of Dex's homepage
MetalMan Omega: dead end in Tamako's homepage
KingMan Omega: DNN building, in control panel by editing room door
BowlMan Omega: NetBattle Machine in the DNN studio
MistMan Omega: same place as BowlMan 
DarkMan Omega: top-left dead end (where you found Geddon3) in Secret Net 1
JapanMan Omega: Secret 2 (where you found the antinavi) found by invisable path
ProtoMan Omega: small square area in Hades Net
Serenade Omega: where you fought him the first time
Bass Omega: where you found SaitoBatch (Hubbatc NCB) 
				    

*****Note: There is NO Punk Omega or Punk version chip of anykind.You can only 
take on Alpha Omega AFTER earning the last two stars (red and orange). He will 
be in the same area you fought him in the first time.Defeating him in Blue 
Version gets you AlphaArm Omega, White Version earns you AlphaArm Sigma.*****
