    Mega Man V (known in Japan as Rockman World 5, and not to be confused with Mega Man 5) is a side-scrolling action platformer developed and published by Capcom for the Game Boy on September 10, 1994.

    It is the fifth portable entry of the original Mega Man series, the sequel to Mega Man IV, and the last of the five Game Boy spin-off entries. Unlike the rest of the spin-off series, Mega Man V does not recycle bosses and levels from a set of two consecutive games in the main franchise. Instead, it features a cast of entirely-new villains (the nine Stardroids, robots from outer space), each with their own level. It is also the only game in the series to feature both the Mega Arm (a new upgradable primary weapon for Mega Man in which charging his arm cannon shoots his fist at enemies, only for it to return to him) and Tango (Mega Man's robotic cat who can be summoned to attack enemies on the screen). Mega Man V was one of the first Game Boy games (prior to Game Boy Color) to directly support the Super Game Boy peripheral for the SNES.

    Set in the year 20XX, the game takes place sometime after super-fighting robot hero Mega Man defeated Dr. Wily and his fourth group of revived Robot Masters. Mega Man is confronted by a mysterious robot, who calls himself Terra, and is unable to defeat him with his Mega Buster. As he is knocked unconscious, Earth is invaded by groups of powerful robots from space (called "Stardroids"). When he awakens, he finds out that Dr. Light has equipped him with a new weapon that delivers stronger attacks to his new opponents. Mega Man must defeat all nine Stardroids and find out Dr. Wily's involvement in all of this.
