I know I'm not getting points for creativity on that title, but I really don't know what else to call a fighting robot version of Roll. Mega Girl? Giga Girl? Roll Girl if you're in Japan?

Cute concept!  And more original than you think, I might add.  :3

Huh. Being a fan of Mega Man and seeing fan work, this is just about the only "Battle Roll" which isn't major amounts of fanservive.

Her super art attack in MVC 1 and 2 is called 'Hyper Roll' where she momentarily dons her battle armor and then grows bigger before firing an arsenal on her enemies. So I assume that the term Hyper Roll doesn't just relate to her specific attack but also her form. But whatevs. Love Roll in a combat form!

I'd go Mega Woman/Roll Woman; since even though she is a kid Rock is too and is still refered to by man rather then boy.

Huh... well there was a version of Roll that could fight in the cartoon series... don't remember if she ever fought in any of the core games though...

Rollwoman is the logical equivalent of Rockman, which would make it Mega Woman in the 'States; however, there are sexist double standards at work which would lead the powers-that-be to dub her Rollgirl and Mega Girl, respectively. The only way to get away from both that and Mega Man's shadow would be to give her a name completely unlike that of her male counterpart. I think I'd prefer Faceroll.

To be fair, the powers-that-be allowed her to three in three different fighting games without a name change. (Not counting her Hyper Roll special.)

As I recall, she was significantly weaker than the other characters in two of those fighting games, and her move set in the third was based off of household chores. I don't really see that as striking a blow for feminism. ;p

I like that design far more than I should. Great job.

Roll Woman if you're in Japan. Mega Woman if you're in the US. He's not 'Mega/Rock Boy' after all.

I'm so sexist! But Roll is so girlish. And Mega Man is also boyish, so there goes that rationalization. What's a fella to do?

She's not an Autobot, though. Even Auto's not an Autobot. (Hey, that rhymed!)

Just cause there's no Transformers connection doesn't mean that:

a) the name doesn't work, or
b) you can't use it.

But I still don't want her name to be a sentence. That's weird.
