Can robots even love?! (Mega Man shipping thread)

Postby ZonicZoneCop » Wed Jan 15, 2014 6:33 pm

....Soooo.
The Sonic forum has a shipping thread, and I feel like there should be one here too.
Of course, as the title states, robots being in love is a special topic.
So while this goes on, and pairings both real and crazzzzzy (Elecman X Crashman FTW) are brought up, let there be a very fascinating topic of discussion to run along side.

Hm...How's about Blues x Tempo? Weirdly enough, I had a dream about that one for some strange reason...

But my OTP will always be Mega Man x Yellow Devil! You cannot deny that it is meant to be!!

Isn't it's a thing where people like shiping random Trasfromers characters together because robot aren't male or female. I think I saw this in a vidoe that talked about differnt sexullalities in differnt fandoms. So appearntly there is a lot of fan art of Optimus Prime and Megatron making out. :(hearty laughter):

^yeah, I'm never searching Transformers fan art. I don't want to imagine that with the movie designs.

Well this will be a fun thread, Yellow DevilXGilbert Stern's Toaster

There... really wouldn't be much to ship, I don't think? They're not human in ... adult anatomical terms. Even if you want to get into fancanon the only thing you'd get in the games/comics are best friends or snuggle buddies.

Though to be fair I always thought Roll would be fairly good at turning Forte around >.>

With Roll's single mindedness that would be hilarious,

Roll's first meeting,

Spoiler: show
Bass: You die today Mega Man! *Fire's blast*

Rock *Dodges*: Bass! we don't have to fight

Roll *with hearts*: I want to have his Matrix! ... ... ... Hey! don't hurt my brother!

Sigh. I'll just get it out.

Mega Man x Roll. I see them as robot versions of Adam and Eve. Deal with it.

Some of you probably know I'm not too big on shipping unless it's just played for laughs or fun. Being too serious about it just takes the fun out it for me.

So while I've yet to think of any real ships I've really come to like, I am somewhat lenient on the idea behind BassXRoll, but only if it's just a crush on her end and nothing going further beyond that. Yeah, I'm thinking of that one scene from the Battle and Chase manga below.
Image

I'm initially opposed to it being a full-blown romance because it really exemplifies the cliché, 'good girl falling for bad boy' which I've seen very rarely work in other media, and further make Bass more of the Vegata-expy than he already is and make Roll his equivalent to Bulma (minus the part where they have a kid since they are still robots). Plus, I'm not sure if I'd really like Roll that much if she did really did fall in love with the guy who wants her brother, whom she's very close to, dead.

So yeah, while I'm not totally behind that ship, I wouldn't mind if was treated as a little one-sided crush for a pre-teen girl like Roll to have, and Bass would hardly notice or care. And even if he did notice he'd probably just use as an advantage over Mega Man. Could he still show some sensitivity to her if she got upset or something? Sure, I'd be fine with it and would even like to see Bass show some semblance of good in him (preferably sometimes with Treble and few and between with anyone else), but any niceness he shows her will just encourage her crush on him.

I preferred it the other way around...Forte crushing on Roll, meself. Guess I should have pointed that out before. I see Roll wanting nothing to do with him aside from trying to get him off Wily's team.

Isn't Kalinka suppose to have a crush on Blues? Speaking of I assume that Blue's is suppose to be physically older then Rock? I wonder if he's chiziled?
