    I am gonna have to go with mega man FTW. He was also in mega man soccer along with fighting games…etc. Can play any sport. You forgot about duck hunt as a sports game. He would really destroy in that game.

    He is basically mario with forever flower power. And we all know Mario can do anything.

    Also as far as ropes go watch the cartoon. his hand goes from hand to cannon. he doesnt need rush to cheat on pit fall. see link below.

    only weakness is that he may be suicidal but you can just rebuild him and send him on his fake happy way.

    Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics:
    1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
    2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
    3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

    Since Dr. Light is a good guy, Mega Man would have been bound by these laws. Robots can’t kill humans. Mega Man can’t kill (or even injure!) humans. QED, he can’t play any contact sport or game where he’d hurt a human. #FAIL.

    If Mega Man was allowed to fight in the Marvel vs Capcom tournaments, I don’t worry about Dr Light’s application of the laws of robotics.
