Bass.EXE is a solo NetNavi (meaning he could use 100% of his power without the use of an Operator), created by Dr. Cossack during the early days of the Alpha CyberNet, the first version of the CyberNet.

Contents

[edit] Background

When Bass was created, his strength and abilities were far superior to other NetNavi of the time. He was branded as a trouble maker due to the fact he only listened to his creator, Dr. Cossack. Bass was constantly "troubleshooting" security systems, often by destroying them if they were too weak, and he was responsible for the destruction of 72 NetNavis. Many of the scientists in charge of the net called for his deletion because of this, but Dr. Cossack convinced them to simply jail Bass, because he couldn't bare to see him deleted. In order to do this, Dr. Cossack created limiters that reduced Bass' power to 1/10 of normal. While Bass was being detained, a massive system disruption of the Alpha CyberNet began.

During this time, Bass' cell was opened and he wandered into the net, still wearing the limiters. Authorities believed the damages and crashes to be the work of Bass.EXE, and thus several official Navis were sent to delete him, despite his pleas of innocence. Even with the limiters Bass managed to put up quite a fight and destroyed several of his attackers, before being seriously injured (the injury that left a scar across his Navi mark). It was at this time Bass gained his hatred for humans, after Dr. Cossack failed to intervene and prove that Bass was not responsible. During the fight, it was determined that the damages were actually caused by the Alpha system itself, not Bass, and the attack was called off. All of his assailants jacked out with the exception of one, who was still determined to see Bass deleted. Right before the finishing blow was delivered, the function of the limiters changed and altered Bass' programming, giving him the "Get Ability" program. This allowed Bass.EXE to prevail and destroy his opponent. After that he vowed vengeance on the human race that had cast him aside, and vanished into the net, eventually coming to live in the UnderNet were he sought out and destroyed Navis to gain their abilities and grow in strength for the day he would get his revenge. Since time he has earned himself the nickname "The Black Shadow".

[edit] In The Games

[edit] MegaMan Battle Network

Bass appears as an optional boss after all 174 chips (except for Life Aura, which is given upon defeating him, and the Bass chip, which is an event exclusive) have been collected. He appears as a random encounter in Internet Area 16. It is interesting to note that Bass has seemed to copy the Life Aura data from the Life Virus, as he has one when MegaMan battles him.

[edit] MegaMan Battle Network 2

Bass plays a much larger role in this game, as Gospel attempts to create a clone of him using BugFrags. Although this works initially, when the clone is defeated by MegaMan, Sean Obihiro, the leader of Gospel, attempts to overload the servers by 200%, greatly increasing the power of this clone and nearly killing himself in the process. The clone, however, becomes far too overpowered and transforms into the Gospel beast. This causes the servers' power usage to triple, causing the amount of radiation to rise exponentially. After the Gospel beast is defeated and the credits roll, a scene is shown where Bass destroys one of his clones and mentions being angry at Sean for trying to clone him. In the post game, MegaMan can fight Bass. To Bass' surprise, he is able to injure him, and he leaves behind a Bass chip.

[edit] MegaMan Battle Network 3

It becomes clear in this game that Dr. Wily was manipulating Sean, and the true motive behind trying to clone Bass was so Dr. Wily could free Alpha. Wily made a deal with Bass, that he would give him the power to destroy humans if Bass helped him collect the TetraCodes and Alpha's data. After MegaMan defeats FlameMan in UnderNet 3, Bass challenges him to a fight, pushing FlameMan out of the way.

At this point in this game, Bass cannot be defeated as he cannot be damaged. MegaMan loses the fight, and as Bass is about to deliver the final blow, an Official NetNavi appears and uses Dark Aura, protecting MegaMan. Bass attempts to attack the Official and the aura barely manages to withstand it. Wily then orders for him to leave, and he does.

Near the end of the game, Bass finally reveals his past and how Dr. Cossak created him but how he was blamed for incidents caused by Alpha. He spoke about how he was left to wander through the net left with only a scar on his chest and his hatred for humans. He then smashes and absorbs the power of the guardian program, the final seal left holding back Alpha, and he fights MegaMan. Upon being defeated, Wily allows Alpha to swallow Bass, but he ends up being swallowed as well.

Upon Alpha being defeated, Bass was near his own deletion when he discovered remnants of the Gospel bug beast. He merged with these remnants and became Bass GS. After MegaMan puts 300 BugFrags into the BugFrag Trader in Secret Area 3, Bass is shown to have consumed all of these BugFrags, and he makes an appearance. He seems to have lost his memory due to merging with the Gospel multibug organism, however he chooses to fight MegaMan to test his new power. MegaMan defeats him and Bass leaves the Secret Area.

After defeating Serenade, he mentions that he fought against Bass in the past and won after a battle that lasted days.

[edit] MegaMan Battle Network 4

Bass returns within the UnderNet, after MegaMan accidentally awakens him. He fights MegaMan using Dark Chips. After his defeat, he escapes to Black Earth, where he fights MegaMan once again after he defeats all of the Dark Soul Navis.

[edit] MegaMan Battle Network 5

When MegaMan gains Bass Cross, Bass can sense his power and appears to challenge him to a fight. Upon his defeat, he escapes to the Nebula Area and challenges MegaMan once again as Bass Alpha, completely consumed by darkness. After defeating him once again, Bass can be found in Nebula Area 6, and may appear as the Chaos Lord, the center of all of the Dark Power in the world. After the Chaos Lord is defeated, Bass XX, the most powerful boss in the game, can be randomly encountered. Bass claims that he was too weak and left to become stronger.

[edit] MegaMan Battle Network 6

Bass fights and loses to MegaMan in both the UnderNet and the Graveyard. After these defeats, Bass goes to the Underground and takes in all of the loose data fragments from the Cybeast of the opposite version. Bass tricks MegaMan into fighting a clone of the Beast-Out version of MegaMan, and after the fight Bass attempts to fight a weakened-down version of MegaMan but is once again defeated. After this defeat, Bass can be found as a random encounter in the Graveyard.
