Added Sonic Universe #51. I'm pretty sure my timeline is correct now and that Mega Man is in the future.

Taking inspiration from the Sonic Chronology thread, I'm color-coding any non "Mega Man" publication that appears in the list.

Would it be a problem if I were to create a timeline for other adaptations? I would like to take a crack at one. After all, the Sonic version has one for Sonic the Comic and Sonic X.

I don't see why not, I suppose.

Okay, I'll go with Mega Man Megamix/Gigamix, then. Sorting the sagas based on the volumes except where impossible (except for Gigamix Vol. 2 and 3, since they're essentially one story arc). I would really appreciate it if there's anything I goofed up on or simply need to add. Also of note, taking a cue from the Sonic timeline, most of these saga names are not official in any way.

Mega Man Megamix/Gigamix Chronology

Saga 0: Prelude to Megamix
Gigamix Vol. 2: Dark Moon (Flashback: when Dr. Light and Dr. Wily were in their younger days)
Gigamix Vol. 1: Asteroid Blues (Flashback: when Dr. Light introduced Blues to music, specifically the genre he's named after)

Saga 1: Mega Man's First Adventures
Megamix Vol. 1: The Birth of Mega Man
Megamix Vol. 1: R Destruction Order (Flashback: when Dr. Light told Rock that the six Robot Master were set to be destroyed)
Megamix Vol. 1: R Destruction Order (The story itself)
Gigamix Vol. 1: Asteroid Blues
Megamix Vol. 2: Prologue
Megamix Vol. 1: Metal Heart

Saga 2: Furious Machines
Megamix Vol. 2: Grim Reaper of Resurrection
Megamix Vol. 2: Warrior's Day Off
Megamix Vol. 2: Power Battle

Saga 3: The Greatest Enemy in History
Megamix Vol. 3: The Greatest Enemy in History (Flashback: when Copy Mega Man was created)
Megamix Vol. 3: The Greatest Enemy in History (The story itself)

Saga 4: Burning Wheel
Gigamix Vol. 1: Burning Wheel

Saga 5: The Stardroids
Gigamix Vol. 2: White Nightmare
Gigamix Vol. 2: Dark Moon
Gigamix Vol. 3: To a Shining Morrow

Saga 6: For Whose Sake?
For Whose Sake? (Mega Man 9 Story)

Dubious/Non Canon Stories
Rockman Remix: R Destruction Order (Original version is non-canon due to story alterations made in the later versions)
Rockman Remix: Mega Mission (Based on Mega Man X, and its canon is dubious)
The Various Mega Man Maniax Stories (Non-canon, because they are gag strips and many of them cannot be made to fit in the story)

I decided to add an extra place for stories that either aren't canon, or I just plain couldn't figure out if they were supposed to be canon. Only got two so far.

EDIT: Added the Maniax stories there because they fit in that category as well.

Saga 5: Rock of Ages
Mega Man #17: Prototype (Introduction)
Mega Man #18: Prototype (Present day)
Mega Man #17: Construction Derby
Mega Man #18: Cold Feat
Mega Man #19: Roll With It!
Mega Man #20: Rock of Ages (Present Day)
Mega Man #21: Countdown (beginning)
20XX
Mega Man #21: Countdown (ending)
Mega Man #22: Cold Crush

I think the only part of #20 that takes place in the present timeline is the very end when the time anomaly has been reversed. The issue opens in the Chronos Institute and notes that it's in the not-too-distant future, so that part of the issue (before the Time Skimmer is activated) is in itself a slight time-skip. Based on the issue, Mega Man recognizes Ra Moon, Gamma, and Proto Man but does not recognize anything else, indicating that he starts traveling through his past, then his future. I'd say the Chronos Institute storyline happens at some point after the SAR/MM3 adaptations.

Right. If you notice right after the genesis wave, I have "Mega Man #20: Rock of Ages (not too distant future)" which refers to most of the issue, as this timeline is going from Mega Man's point of view, which puts it after the genesis wave and before the rest of Worlds collide

It's pretty easy to miss it since it's lumped into "world's collide" but once "the curse of Ra Moon comes out, I'll split "When Worlds Collide" up and stick "Rock of Ages" at the end of the "The Curse of Ra Moon" arc
