PFFFT! I know that feeling. A good 3/4 or 4/5th of the characters I've been obsessed with at any given time have been female. |D The only male characters I've become obsessed over and remained obsessed over for a very significant ammount of time are Roy (Fire Emblem) Link (Zelda) and Yoshi (Mario). That being said, I just sort of ignore Nintendo when it says Yoshi is a boy. (Nintendo, Yoshi lays /eggs/! I see you invoking YouFailBiologyForever. Why you do this. >L) So Yoshi arguably doesn't count.
Yeah... Battle Network took ideas from Megaman, but Capcom clearly stated that they were non-canon to eachother. Which means they are different universes, which means they're basically different game series.
Giant buckets of water are what all true warriors strive for. |D
