Dark MegaMan.EXE, is the embodiment of MegaMan.EXE's inner darkness and was given form by the power of Dark Chips. Although he is destroyed after the events of the Duo incident, Nebula's rise allowed Dark MegaMan.EXE to resurface after MegaMan.EXE had numerous Dark Chips forcibly implanted into him.

Note: Dark MegaMan.EXE bears all of MegaMan.EXE's powers aside from his special transformations (i.e. Double Soul) due to being the embodiment of his inner darkness in the fourth game before outright possessing MegaMan.EXE in the fifth game while under the influence of the Dark Power that was inserted into him.
