Do reploids have souls then? How does Cyberspace work?

...Wat.

Boy, Cyberspace is basically more or less of a sanctuary for "dead reploids" (See Phantom). It's been used for troop transfer, quick shortcuts, and epic battles because of the such large space.

Plus reploids can't or so really "die". Take Siggy or Zero for example, they have thier memory chips onboard thier current bodies, so if one's destroyed but the memory chip survives they are pretty much done until a new body is built. It's how "retire" got it's term in the X, Zero, and ZX series.

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Go away troll.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

No problem, any other takers to my question? I'm really curious to how the Z series handles Cyberspace and what not.

Well, its really just that, cyberspace. cyberspace is the reploid afterlife. Its where progams and cyber elves dwell. Its the same as the one from X4.a reploid soul is after all, data. So when the reploid dies, that data drifts back to cyberspace, and is usually lost as it is absorbed by it. or like I like to say, "digested" by the constant flow of data.

Rploids with a strong enough willpower can survive and continue on living in cyberspace.

Zan and or Hyper can tell this stuff better than me.

I've beaten all the X series games, when in X4 is Cyberspace mentioned? I'm drawing a blank.

I think that's basically it. Also, you can't forget about Mega Man Xtreme (Rockman X: Cyber Mission) or Xtreme 2 (Rockman X2: Soul Eraser). In Cyber Mission, the entire game technically takes place in Cyber Space. And that's where data of old bosses is stored (or something, been a while). I mentioned Soul Eraser because, if Reploid souls are data, then that explains why the souls were able to be erased.

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

They're still data. They upload their consciousness (which is data as well). This is my guess, so correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking that the way Reploid souls were erased is by uploading them and then deleting them. So they can be uploaded. Everything about a reploid is data. Remember, just because they have free will doesn't mean they aren't robots anymore.

The ability to live in Cyberspace is unique to Phantom and Cyber Elves. A regular Repliroid soul has no existence outside of a body, it is simply becomes part of the data stream, like a Cyber Elf that runs out of energy and dies.

What ARE you talking about?

The opposite. It's completely different. ZERO4 emphasized the difference quite clearly. ZERO3's Cyberspace is the program world that encompasses all substance world phenomena in the form of a program. What you see in Xtreme, X4, X7, ZERO4 is instead a manmade program world, accessible through teleportation.

Quote
And that's where data of old bosses is stored (

This data is simply stored in the Mother Computer.

Quote
if Reploid souls are data

A Repliroid soul is a Repliroid's operational DNA program. It is synonymous to a personality program, to a Cyber Elf.

Quote
And how come reploids still living can enter it?

The ZERO3 Cyberspace is accessible thanks to the resonance between Omega and Dark Elf causing the appearance of those doors. The other Cyberspace is accessible by teleportation, as teleportation turns the user into data.

The soul is still a program though, right? And programs are data.

Yes. It's a program. But one shouldn't forget when it's alive, and when it's dead. As a Cyber Elf (living in cyberspace), it's a Program Life Object. But after death of a regular Repliroid, it become data that is no longer alive. That is why you can only find the likes of Phantom, X, Elpis and the Cyber Elves in Cyberspace. Regular Repliroids do not have the energy to live without their bodies. Note that Phantom is like a ghost, he described Cyberspace as the "interim" between life and death. In that state, as just a soul, he can be killed still, and then truly die. Regular Repliroids skip this interim of living as a ghost. (With exceptions of course, just as there are human ghosts.)

See Rouge's and Ceil's quota in Z4 good sir, she mentions it was used to transfer troops or something like that (which is also known as the teleporter circuit, it's STILL a part of cyberspace anyway).

Different Cyberspace. As explained in that same scene, it's like Cyberspace, but different. That is what we see in X4, X7, Xtreme, and also of course EXE. Teleportation turns the user into data and sends that data over a circuit, making a datastream from point A to point B. By then altering the teleportation program, superimposing visuals on the circuits, it becomes possible to move freely, allowing one to navigate that manmade program environment much akin to ZERO3's cyberspace.
