Timeline of X
« on: December 22, 2008, 12:26:40 AM »
Because people found the previous version too confusing, I decided to rewrite this timeline. I've taken care to include more detail in each entry and incorporate even the latest info given to us by japanese translation and producer interviews.


Global Timeline:

MHX, the Day of Sigma || X1, The Sigma Rebellion Incident (21XX, 2114+)
=>
X2, The X-hunter Incident (6 months after X1)
=>
XC,  Xtreme, The Mother Computer Hacking Incident (Many years after X was found.)
||
Megamisson (3 months after X2)
=>
X3, The Doctor Doppler Incident (Several months after Doppler Town is founded several months after X2)
=>
MegaMission2, VS Revenge Limited (2 months after X3)
=>
MegaMission3, VS Hyper Limited
=>
XS, Xtreme2, The Soul Eraser Incident
=>
X4, The Repliforce War (Several months after X3)
=>
X5, The Falling Colony Incident (Several months after X4)
=>
X6, The Nightmare Virus Incident (Three weeks after X5)
=>
X7, The Red Alert Incident (Long Time after X6)
=>
X8, Paradise Lost
=>
XCM (22XX, 2202+)

Main Timeline:

20XX
-Ending to MegaMan: The Power Battle. Dr. Light has realized what robots need, they need to be able to worry, to determine right and wrong for themselves.
=>
20XX
-Ending to MegaMan2: The Power Fighters.  The design of the girly-looking robot Zero is shown to Bass. Dr. Wily informs Bass that his energy source Bassnium used to be the most powerful energy on earth and that its creation was a mistake. Wily has learned from his mistake and given Zero an even more powerful energy source. Wily threatens that once his new creation and “that” (his other project) are completed MegaMan and Bass will be killed and the world will be his.
=>

20XX
(
-Dr. Thomas Light is developing his greatest masterpiece, a new robot called “MegaManX”, an advanced version of MegaMan who he equipped with an ability to “worry” which marks a new epoch in robotics. X’s construction is carried out inside of an open capsule, there he is activated by Dr. Light for the first time. The doctor introduces himself and tells X that his name is a variable that represents limitless potential. Dr. Light emphasizes that X is a new type of robot which can think for himself.
=>
-X is once again activated by Dr. Light, he converses with him yet again, he tells X of how similar he is to humans such as Dr. Light. But, that’s also why Dr. Light is afraid that mankind isn’t quite ready to accept him. They might view X’s limitless evolutionary potential as something to be feared. He informs X that his name also carries connotations of danger.  (Dr. Light has notably aged since the previous scene)
=>
Dr. Light has completed X and activates him one last time. He informs X that he didn’t have enough time to see X enter the world. Dr. Light says he has given X the ability to think, to worry, to grow and to evolve as he fights, but he emphasizes that it is too soon for that power to be unleashed. Dr. Light believes X will fight for justice and for hope, he tells X that he wants X to use that conscience of his to fight for the people of the future and that they will need someone like X to guide them. Saying his farewell, he closes the capsule sealing X away whilst telling him he is the world’s one true hope. (Dr. Light has notably aged since the previous scene, his health has deteriorated.)
=>
Having sealed away X, he leaves behind a warning message (written on September 18, 20XX) in which the people of the future are informed about X’s abilities and the dangers he may hold. He also mentions how it’s an unfortunate fact that human life is short and fleeting, meaning that he himself can not confirm the safety of the X future and there is no one to whom he can entrust his research. Thus Dr. Light has decided to seal X away hoping that someday he will be discovered in a far-flung future where he’ll fight valiantly for peace. To assure the people of the future X is not a danger he has the capsule test the reliability of X’s internal systems for 30 years.  As a final reassurance, Dr. Light also urges that X is the hope of the world and of himself.
=>
After sealing X, Dr. Light dies, likely of old age. But before that he has also ensured to leave behind a program that will play messages for X to guide him. This program also supplies X with equipment such as armor and other upgrades. The program that plays these messages seems to have been given Dr. Light’s personality. Because of this, it can be thought that the program is actually Dr. Light brought back from the dead.
)
||
(
-Dr. Wily’s greatest masterpiece Zero is under construction by him, this construction is carried out inside a capsule throughout the entire process and sometimes it involves automation using assembly line robotics. At one point during this creation process Zero is activated and he sees his creator standing ominously in front of world map. In his recollection of this scene upon his ‘death’ during the events of X5, he remarks not knowing who this person is, but he does realize that the robot that is being made is something that destroys other robots and  that this robot is himself.
=>
-Completing Zero as much as possible (with a different design then the one he had previously shown Bass) Dr. Wily seals away Zero for the future. In doing so he gives his greatest masterpiece a mission to “destroy MegaManX”. Because Dr. Wily created Zero to be a completely evil robot, he put inside of Zero’s DNA a Virus, that would later be known as the Sigma Virus, that would awaken him to his true self.
=>
Dr. Wily dies, presumably of old age. However, thanks the Sigma Virus he put inside Zero he would be brought back to life in the next century.

21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of April 8: Cain notes he has walked around searching in the wasteland for fossil proof of plants that lived in the Mesozoic Era during all of last month but nothing turned up. Hoping to find something he decides to set up camp elsewhere tomorrow.
=>
21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of April 9: Cain has set up camp at his new site, he laid preliminary groundwork out in a grid pattern and starting excavating. His instruments gave a strange reading on Block E-46 of this grid. A metallic substance seems to be buried several meters below the surface. Dr. Cain intends to dig there tomorrow.
=>
21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of April 10: Several meters below the surface Dr. Cain discovers the remains of a laboratory in ruins. At length he found writings indicating that the laboratory belonged to the famed robotics engineer Dr. Thomas Light. Looking through Dr. Light’s notes he sees that Dr. Light was making great advances and the notes keep referring to “the capsule”.
=>
21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of April 13:
Dr. Cain discovers the capsule. 14m tall by 8m wide, the capsule was hidden beneath a collapsed ceiling. Dr. Cain finds it odd that although the building is in rubble, the capsule alone was preserved intact. At the time Dr. Cain found it, it was running some sort of diagnostic functions. There was a warning not to touch the capsule, but all the indicators were green, which means safety. Dr. Cain concludes it’s probably okay to open it and intends to find out tomorrow.
=>
21XX
-Cain’s journal Entry of April 14:
After more than a 100 years of slumber X is activated by Dr. Cain, who meet each other. Dr. Cain makes note that X is a robot whose nearly human, given by Dr. Light the power to think and make his own decisions, the power of judgment. Dr. Cain concludes X is more like a human than a machine.
=>
21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of April 15:
Cain has tried skimming through Dr. Light’s design notes and is amazed, according to him an amazing quantum leap in robotics is described there. Using these notes Dr. Cain believes he may be able to replicate Dr. Light’s design concept to produce a new generation of robots with that design integrated into them. He intends to begin transporting X and Dr. Light’s notes back to his lab tomorrow.
=>
21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of November 22:
Using X as a reference Dr. Cain has completed his first “Reploid”. Dr. Cain doesn’t completely understand how the system Dr. Light  built operates, but he tried to make some revisions to it. After these revisions, the Reploid became fully functional. This Reploid, who would come to be known as “Sigma” has unlimited strength and intelligence. He seems to be fully capable of making decisions and Dr. Cain was even capable of debating with it.
=>
21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of May 3: For the last few weeks, Reploids have been running an assembly line and shown themselves to be capable of doing even difficult tasks with ease. Dr. Cain had thus tried putting them to work with humans. The sight was rather odd, but the humans seemed to accept them gladly.  (US:January 3)
=>
21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of July 16:
Three Reploids became “Maverick,” and were shut down because they injured two people.
This is the third case of this kind of defect in Reploids, and Dr. Cain has no idea what the cause is. Some say that they had better stop the creation of Reploid. However, Dr. Cain thinks otherwise because the humans have become too Dependant on Reploids. (US:February 16)
=>
21XX:
-Cain’s journal entry of November 20:
The council has had last decided to set up a countermeasure.
They’ve decided to establish a “Hunter” group to destroy Reploids that have gone Maverick before they can inflict harm on a human. The Reploid called Sigma has been appointed as the leader of the Hunters (Commander of 17th Elite Unit.) Sigma is a Reploid of the highest intelligence, one of the most intelligent Dr. Cain created and is equipped with Dr. Cain’s latest circuit design. Sigma has the talent to cope with any problem. (US: February 16, same as previous entry.)
=>

21XX
-Cain’s journal entry of December 10:
Sigma has been commanding the Maverick Hunters for about two years now. The actions of Sigma and his staff of Hunters have stopped Irregulars from harming humans. According to Cain it’s time everyone breathed a sigh of relief. At the same time, Dr. Cain is a bit concerned about X. X seems to lack the self-confidence to progress on the course Dr. Light planned for him. But Dr. Cain is also sure that, with time, X will find his own path in life. (US: Sigma has been commanding the Maverick Hunters for about two months now, May 16)
||
(
-Zero is discovered and awakened from his seal by the intrusion of Reploids (Most likely Garma’s unit of Maverick Hunters) near the place in which he was sleeping. He is officially discovered in the same area where X and other ancient technology was also discovered, an area that because of this was made forbidden, giving it the name of “Forbidden Area.” 
=>
-After wiping out Garma’s unit, Maverick Hunters succeed in cornering Zero inside of an abandoned warehouse in the Rocky Mountains. To avoid sacrificing any more men, Sigma decides to face this red Maverick by himself. During the battle, Zero tatters Sigma’s pride and self-confidence, taking great pleasure in torturing Sigma after having ripped off one of his arms in combat. Sigma eventually manages to get the upper hand by punching Zero in the head as Zero experiences a mysterious headache phenomena, displaying a “W” inside of his helmet gem. As a result of this battle the Sigma Virus transfers from Zero to Sigma. After the battle Sigma orders the red Maverick to be brought to Dr. Cain for study.
=>
-After Dr. Cain’s study, Zero awakens and shows no sign of Maverick behavior. Zero has miraculously transformed into a good Reploid and forgotten about his original objective to destroy X. Sigma takes Zero under his watch and Zero joins the Maverick Hunters, eventually becoming an SA-rank Hunter part of Sigma’s 17th Elite.
)

=>
21XX
-In order to help against the Mavericks, X joins the Maverick Hunters. He eventually becomes a B-class Hunter part of Sigma’s 17th Elite. X’s rank is deliberately lower than his actual abilities because of X's hesitation in battle. He becomes best friends with Zero, who is one of the few Hunters who believes in X’s ability.
=>
21XX
Having been infected with the Sigma Virus, a darkness began to grow in Sigma’s heart. Several months after his battle with Zero, the evil Sigma Virus’ hold on Sigma becomes complete, Sigma becomes the Sigma Virus. As a result of all this, Sigma acquired the means to start a grand scale rebellion, which he desired after witnessing X’s devotion to justice developed his philosophy of evolution.
=>
21XX
-Sigma calls out to rally Reploids for his rebellion in secret. After getting word of Sigma’s call to rally Reploids, Penguin went from the 13th, to directly assist Sigma more closely, joining the 17th. He was bored with life at the South Pole, his mission was a disappointment, thus he was more than willing to join Sigma.

-Cain’s Journal entry of July 4:
Cain reports that today, Sigma went Maverick, and took nearly all of the Hunters with him.
Cain notes that his motive is unclear, but he seems to have the false impression humans are inferior, and has pronounced “judgment” blaming humans for the arrested development of Reploids. Therefore, Sigma has decided, “Humans must be exterminated.” Cain also notes that most people are hiding, or trying to flee from the city. He doesn’t know how long humans will be able to withstand Sigma and he fears they built too many Reploids.
X diligently reports news of the fight against Sigma to Dr. Cain. He doesn’t know whether X can win or not, but he won’t stop him because something needs to be done. (US: June 4, Cain fears he built the Reploids too well. Zero has become leader of the hunters. Zero wants to go after Sigma, X is taking the news of the war very personally and wants to join him.)

actually, a bit back, I wasnt sure about something, so I said, "lets go to Zan's timeline." but it wasnt up yet. and I realized just how usefull it really is.
...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.

My stream. I occasionally play stuff on there.

Sigma becomes the Sog,a Virus. As a result of all this,
I guess you must of type this a little fast, sorry I pointed it out.  It's a great time line.

As noticed with other typos within the post.
Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
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.

I've updated with the rest of the timeline, feel free to comment about any revisions or additions that are needed. I'd like to note that right now I'm quite confused about the placement of MegaMission, it's quite far removed from X3, before Doppler even constructed his utopia, so how did he ever get away with him creating Limited?

Wasnt X3 like, almost right after Megamissions? though that colflicts a bit with X3's story...  Megamission doesnt really fit into the games cannon all too well..

So Megamission is actually part of the real story line? I never spected that. This helps me alot to understand X time line way way better.

I remenber reading a topic like 3 years ago, everyone saying that the god damn time line was mest up. But now after reading this i would be able to sleep at night now.

Cookie for you dude.  :cookie:

MegaMission was written to work around X3 from its conception. Much like MegaMission2 and 3 work within the X3-X4 gap. It's presence doesn't really change anything, unless you're splitting hairs about Zero and a Dr. Right capsule with Xtreme2 and X5. When it comes down to it though, MegaMission1 at least had a lot of Capcom involvement, like Inafune drawing Doppler, X (Ikusu) and Storm Eagleed L, so amongst licensed material, it's of high standing.  MegaMission2 and MegaMission3 also are pretty important, being pretty much THE standard for RockmanX model kits, with even Sensei or Seito (X4~X6 artists) doing the box art.

All in all, feel free to exclude it, feel free to include it. Doesn't change much, other than having to figure out how Light can suddenly give Zero armor and then suddenly not.

Intresting little fun fact, do they still sell the actual cards? I'd like to take the SD Gundam RPG concept into this for a possible fangame, I played the game.

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.

Zan, do you have any proof whatsoever that CM is canon? I refuse to believe this because there are so many things that conflict. I've been pondering this for a long time...  >_<

-X8 explains Redips' origins.
-ZERO introduces Orbital Elevators, which were then first used in XCM and explained X8.
-X8 references the copy chips being produced once again in XCM.
-ZXA references both X8 and XCM.
-Sigma died in X8, XCM does not have Sigma.
-Developer's said it was the distant future of the X-series.
-XCM is included in R20.
-It's the SECOND game they made, why would it not be canon when the THIRD game is?
-Kitabayashi created Axl, Kitabayashi produced XCM. Kitabayashi is co-producer of X7 and X8.

As for any contradiction:
-X8 kills off the New Generation enough for them to be nothing short of a myth in XCM. That is why Axl is surprised about Redips' power.
-X said Axl's fine, so he got better from Lumne's attack. Hence he's fine in XCM.
-A long time has passed, Axl's copy ability got stronger, he can now ignore the previous size limitation.
-Axl could always store DNA data from enemies he had faced, they just never used it properly in gameplay.
-XCM happens in 22XX. ZERO happens 100 years after the Elf Wars, no century specified. The irregular wars are said to be long-lasting, and even lasting centuries.
-Zero does not seal himself directly after X6, it's sometime after X8, and even after XCM.

I'm glad I found this. This one guy on YouTube doesn't even know the timeline of the Megaman X games.

-Kitabayashi created Axl, Kitabayashi produced XCM. Kitabayashi is co-producer of X7 and X8.
Kitabayashi is an "Assistant Producer" in X7 (I'll be damned if this is a real indication of lesser involvement level than CO-producer, but it is what they worded it as), himself and Koji Nakajima produced CM together (sharing the same rank), and X8 he's full-fledged producer (CM was apparently Nakajima's last venture in the X series). All three games had Tatsuya Minami as executive producer.

I remember the translator of the X7 OST booklet giving someone else's name on the whole comments on Axl's design and the infamous "give all your love for my precious child!" line, but I'll be damned if I'll be arsed to remember who was it. Guess it was the character designer or something.

2 months later:
Just checked the name of that guy- it's Yamato Hiroyuki, not Kitabayashi, not Nakajima. So yeah, probably just a character designer.
Speaking of which, I should really polish that translation. In hindsight, it looks like I nailed the meaning, but the writing was godawful.

21XX/22XX
-The production of copy/chameleon chips is restarted in the vicinity of Giga City.
It's entirely conceivable for some of the facilities within Giga City to predate the establishment of Giga City itself.  We know for a fact that Gamialla Mine does, it's a "pile of rocks" that was brought in from elsewhere, before Force Metal had been developed enough to render Energen obsolete.  Melda Ore Plant is also stated to be mobile in some fashion, traversing the surface of the sea to collect Force Metal from each plate.  Furthermore, Axl is citing a rumor, they may or may not be valid grounds to it in the first place.

They needed a new formula a long time ago.  I honestly think Legends 3 would have accomplished that.  They kept on remaking the same thing, with lower budgets, and now they're acting all confused because they stopped making a profit.

All production was stopped after X8. Since they're producing again, it's has restarted. Doesn't you know, mean they had to go build a new facility instead of reusing the one they already had.

As for the rumor status. Marino found out that Spider went there. And the Cadre Imposters are additional proof of its existence.

Yes, but "the vicinity of Giga City" implies that this took place after Giga City's construction, and that is completely unknown.  If it is a re-used facility it could have taken place at any time whatsoever.  For Copy Chip information to be as hard to come by as it is, research on it probably shouldn't be all that recent.

All Spider and Cadre stuff ties to Redips.  Marino does not cite Giga City specifically, she merely states that "a long time ago, Spider was at a place where they researched copy abilities."

I suppose you could read it that way, IF you somehow confuse Giga City for being around when it didn't exist yet....

You don't mention Isoc at all. I love his part of X6' story, being giddy as all hell that Zero decimated High Max, when X couldn't even hurt him.

I've technically mentioned "Isoc" approximately nine times under a different name. But because of that, most of anything I would say about him outside the scope of the game is simply theorizing his true involvement.

Though, I do suppose a few more lines about Zero's revival are in order.
