I will create chaos. Destroy everything. And the best part? Oh, the very best part is... I have finally gotten the best of Dr. Light!
~ Dr. Wily

Dr. Albert W. Wily is the main antagonist from the Mega Man series and the arch-enemy of Mega Man. He appears in the nineteenth episode of Death Battle, Eggman VS Wily, where he battled the army of Sonic antagonist Dr. Eggman.


After being continuously out-shined by his insensitive colleague, Dr. Light, Dr. Albert W. Wily turned to a life of crime in an attempt to achieve fame and power. Whether through his own engineering or impressive hacking, over the years, Wily developed a large, diverse robot army built on the ideals of both solid defense and ranged firepower. However, he is often foiled by Dr. Light's greatest creation, Mega Man.
