Mega Man X's 22nd Century Timeline (MMX:U49) by IrregularSaturn Mega Man X's 22nd Century Timeline (MMX:U49) by IrregularSaturn
This is the timeline which I used in reference to make the setting of my sprite comic Mega Man X: Unit 49.

Disregarding the events with the "MMX:U49" tag, this timeline can be used for other stories and seeks to fill the gaps between the games and add some extra info about the universe of the games. I acknowledge the starting date is questionable and can easily be situated earlier in the 22nd century, but the purpose of the dates is simply to give referential points instead of the classical and ambiguous "21XX".

More information can be found in the comic or here.

...I'm guessing Command Mission doesn't fit within the timeline?

Either way, nice timeline. Short to the point and covers just what we should know. Honestly I would pin it down a few decades, but that's just me.

Yeah, you can subtract some dozens of years, that's just my personal choice xD
Also, MMX:CM is set during the 22XXs and presumably happens very shortly before the Elf Wars or, more probably, is placed in a timeline where that never happens, so I left it out to evade that ambiguity.

To be fair, the timeline diverged completely with Megaman X6, long before Command Mission was a thing. There wasn't supposed to be a game after X5, so, COmmand Mission just picks up on what X8 offered with the New Generation Reploids and all.
Interesting choice, though!

Ah, I see.
Actually, looking at when Cain discovers X, didn't the original manual states that X woke up the next day after being discovered? The manual also implies only months passed for those early events pre-X1.

Yes, X was activated in the following day the capsule had been discovered. However, it is very weird that Dr. Cain managed to replicate the same "quantum leap" of X's mind capacity of feeling and thinking on his own in just a few months when in the rest of the series it is stated that nobody could make a complete and understandable analysis of both X and Zero. To make something on that level, I assume that, even with X himself helping, Dr. Cain should have taken at least one year or maybe much more than that in the least optimist case.

For the rest, the amount of time between the first Reploid and X1/MHX should be at least two years:
April 21XX -> Cain discovers X; November 21XX -> Cain creates the first Reploid; July 21XX+1 -> Third Maverick occurence; November 21XX+1 -> The Maverick Hunters are formed; July 21XX+2 -> Day of Sigma.

Sorry I took so tremendously long to reply, but I understand what you mean. Also I noticed that X4 takes place around 13 days. I would imagine it would take a good while, but what events took place if they weren't fighting?

I acknowledge that the interval I put between the missions and the events that take place in the space was exaggerated, so I cut it down to a more reasonable time.

If you wouldn't mind me asking a question about the RaDoRB, are Dr. Doppler, Berkana, and Laguz Island any way connected to them, and possibly a reason why the director did his crimes?
IrregularSaturn Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In case of the expanded stuff, Dr. Doppler was one of the most successful scientist Reploids created by RaDoRB, so successful he managed to neutralize the Sigma Virus and became very influent and famous. Dr. Doppler then builds his Dopple Town as an independent scientist and works there until the incident in MMX3.
As for Berkana, I didn't think too much about that. I get that she was a researcher that became insanely obsessed with power and began that DNA Soul plan.

For the case of the director, it's more related with the MMXU49 plot (and part of Seigen's past will be revealed only by the end of the comics), but if you want to disassociate it from Dr. Seigen, look at the Director as a person who feared the potential of the Reploids and wanted to stay in power of the institute to prevent anything wrong from happening. Due to his great fear and maybe past traumas, he took it to the extreme and committed crimes against those who would exceed his "security limits", like creating powerful combat Reploids or mass robot revive techniques. If any catastrophe came out of RaDoRB, not only his nightmares would become real but the Director would also be partially guilty for that, something that could ruin his relations with the government and lead to his substituition as director. To protect his image, secure his place atop of the RaDoRB and to lead the scientific development into a secure road the way he thought it was right, he had to sabotage people that weren't really doing wrong things in secrecy.
