Actually I'm with kirbychu on this one. It's all about reproductive organs. Just because it acts like a girl doesn't mean it's automatically female. If the robots are anything like they are in the real world, they're genderless machines no matter how many tits you add on it.
If they aren't and robots have oily robot sex to make little robot children, well I'm glad Sigma nuked the shit out of Megaman's world.
So... If we call Sheep Man "Sheep Woman" and nail some metal tits to it, you guys'll be happy?
Splash Woman wasn't a girl. Splash Woman was a machine designed to rescue drowning people. My aunt has a boat called "The Lady", but that doesn't mean there's gender diversity in the river. This is madness.
First of all, Ditto trumps all when it comes to Pokemon-breeding arguments. We humans may not have any clue as to how Magnemite have kids, and it's possible not even they know, but Ditto seems to, which implies there is gender in the mechanical Pokemon somewhere.
No it doesn't. It implies asexual reproduction. The Pokémon are still genderless.
As robots, they could reproduce asexually by, y'know... building other robots. But that would still leave them genderless.
Third off, we have no evidence that Dr. Light DIDN'T make them sexual. Remember, they're Androids. How far did Dr. Light go? No one can be sure. And so, once again, I bring back my point: What's Mario? We haven't seen his nuts, how do we know he's not a female? By the logic that Mega Man characters, who have no discernable genitalia, are all nonsexual, we're brought back to the capacity to question the gender of even organic characters since we haven't seen anything down below on them, either.
Shrikeswind, I'm afraid this part of the post is a new level of lunacy.
If Dr. Light didn't build any of his robots to have free will, why would he build them with the ability to have sex? Is he that much of a fucked up pervert? And if the answer is yes, then I don't think I want to play Mega Man any more. And they're Androids? Since when? I've only ever seen them referred to as robots.
I'm going to say it again: this is not about fictional characters. It's about... ROBOTS! Mario is male because he is a male human. Humans are not fictional, and non-fictional humans have gender. Robots are also not fictional, and non-fictional robots do NOT have gender. You can stick as many realistic jiggling boobs and cute asian faces on them as you want, but what you have, essentially, is a vending machine in drag. Not a girl.

To keep this thread from being shot out of a cannon into Hell, I'm going to reply in PM. Meanwhile, I'll continue coming by looking for news on MM10 and commenting on random crap. But this debate on robotic sexual capacity is rapidly becoming unfunnier and unfunnier and is just starting to feel like every response is RAGE.
Also, Sheep Man is a sheep. I wonder if he goes baa.
Need I remind all of you that this is MEGA MAN we're talking about. Realistic rules about robots don't necessarily apply here.
Saying that robots don't have genders as an explanation for why people shouldn't care that we didn't get another female robot master is just as dumb as raising a stink over the fact that we didn't get another female robot master.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
