Auto (Also known as Rightot in Japan) is a recurring character in the original Mega Man series. He is Dr. Light
's mechanic, and can built useful items/upgrades for Mega Man
with use of bolts that Mega Man gives him.
He first made his appearance in Mega Man 7
in the beginning of the game, driving a cart with Mega Man and Roll
along with him. He also runs a item shop that is located inside a giant robot that resembles Eddie
- inside the robot contains Auto and Eddie. Mega Man can stop by at anytime and can have Auto built useful items for Mega Man by supplying bolts that Mega Man finds in the levels of the game.
In Mega Man 8, the item store takes place in Dr. Light's lab which is run by Roll. But Auto stills makes his appearance in the game. In the Rush Jet sections in Tengu Man
's stage and the second level of Dr. Wily
's fortress, Wily Tower, Auto appears as a assist for Mega Man and Rush - he appears with a bazooka and shoots out explosive missile.
