MegaMan Volnutt (ロック・ヴォルナット, Rock Volnutt) is the protagonist of the Mega Man Legends sub-series of the Mega Man universe.

Origin[edit]

Volnutt was originally named Mega Man Trigger and was a purifier unit (Irregular Hunter in Japan) in Elysium (Heaven in Japan). His job was to eliminate Aberrant units (Irregulars in Japan) that threatened the Master System. Trigger was close to the Master. The Master asked Trigger to travel to Terra to see the Carbons with him and landed on Calbania Island. The Master orders Trigger to destroy the Master System and delete all the data in Elysium because Elysium was cold and sterile. He went to grant the Master's dying wish, but Sera (mother unit of Elysium) fought him after being frustrated with Yuna (mother unit of Terra)'s decision to be neutral. Trigger was destroyed and his perameters were set to heal and he was transformed into a baby without any memories. Trigger then put his essential data files in Data. Yuna sealed Trigger and Data in a ruin in Nino Island while Sera was with Geetz in Forbidden Island.

Years later, Barrell Caskett was researching the ruins in Nino Island and found Trigger and Data. Since he broke into the ruins without the Grandmaster's permission, he took them under his care. Barrell's granddaughter, Roll named Mega Man Volnutt (Barrell named him Rock as a pun on Rock and Roll in Japan) after one of her favorite video game characters. Volnutt lived the life of a Digger, searching for Refractors and defeating Reaverbots. In Legends 1/Mega Man 64, he had to protect Kattlelox Island from the Bonnes (after a crash landing), with the daughter (Tron Bonne) gaining a crush on him. He also finds Mega Man Juno who knows his past as Mega Man Trigger. Juno plans to destroy Kattlelox and Volnutt defeats him. Data reveals he knows his past but can't reveal it.

In Legends 2, Barrell and Verner Von Bluecher travel to Forbidden Island. Volnutt and Roll go to Forbidden Island to find out who "Matilda" (who helped attack Barrell's ship) is and if she is Roll's mother. Volnutt accidentally frees Sera and Geetz trying to prevent the Sulphur-Bottom (Barrell's ship) from crashing. Geetz needs 4 keys to open the Mother Lode (which is why Barrell and Bluecher were there) and Bluecher sends Volnutt to do it. After getting the keys, Sera and Geetz turn on Volnutt. Geetz fights Volnutt while Sera goes to Elysium. Geetz explodes and Mega Man is hurt. Yuna and Data manage to heal him and he regains part of his memories as Trigger. He goes to Elysium to stop Sera from using the Carbon Reinitialization Program. Volnutt, Yuna, and Sera are trapped on Elysium (where he still is due to Legends 3 being canceled) while the Elder System begins to reactivate. Back on Terra, Roll and Tron Bonne begin to build a rocket to get Volnutt.
