Dr. Eggman: So let me get this straight... We team up to wreak havoc on our respective enemies.
Dr. Wily: Yep.
Dr. Eggman: We combine our intelligences to create powerful robots and unnecessarily complex schemes.
Dr. Wily: That's right.
Dr. Eggman: And in the end, everything will blow up in our faces.
Dr. Wily: Probably.
Dr. Eggman: So why are we doing this?

Dr. Wily: You have anything better to do?
Two Evil Scientist Villains Victorious, Pt 1

Two Evil Scientists is a long-running sprite comic that has been updated since 2004 and has enjoyed a somewhat more than modest fanfare. Initially starting out on keenspace (now comicgenesis) the comic was moved to smackjeeves where it became one of the longest running comics on the site. The comic takes a somewhat lighthearted idea and makes it work; pitting together the characters from both the Mega Man series and the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Rather than solely focusing on the exploits of the heroes of these series however, the comic, as its title implies, has a heavier focus on the two main villains (Dr. Albert Wily and Dr. Ivo Robotnik) from these series. The author makes use of the many similarities between these series to make for an interesting comic.

The series is currently on an extended hiatus.


Tropes used in Two Evil Scientists include:

Proto Man: "And we just happened to find [a Chaos Emerald] on your little treasure hunt?"
Knuckles: "Stranger things have happened!"
Proto Man: "A lot of it has happened recently too."

  • Les Yay: Invoked here.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: From both the Mega Man and Sonic Series.
  • LOLcats: Tango falls in love with Blaze. He wants to be able to communicate with her, so he has Auto reprogram him, leading to this.
  • Love Triangle: For a while, there was one with Amy, Mega Man, and Sonic. Quint's first role in the story was an attempt to remove Sonic from the equation, leaving nothing in between Amy and Mega Man.
  • Mad Scientist: In the current time alone, there's 5: Dr. Light, Dr. Wily, Dr. Eggman, Dr. Cossack, and Tails. Out of all of them, Dr. Light is the most disturbing.
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: Mostly done for kicks, but several of the comics imply that not only have Sonic and Mega Man been inhabiting the same world/universe, but Pokémon, Samus, and even other heroes inhabit the same world... the main focus, though, is always on the Sonic and Mega Man characters. Yeah...
  • Meanwhile in the Future: While Sonic and Mega Man are trapped in the future and past respectively, it keeps jumping back between them.
  • Mundane Utility: The titular scientists used two of their shapeshifting robots to pose as Amy and Roll and babysit for Wily's daughter Cream. This bites them in the ass later on when the two robots decide to betray them partly because of being used mundanely.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Well, send the hypotenuse to the future. Same thing, really.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Mega Hedgehog destroys the Master Emerald, the only thing powering Doppelganger's massive army. Too bad it was also the only thing preventing the Death Egg from crashing into the populated city below it.
  • The Not-Secret: It's difficult for Mega Man to hide his identity from the rest of the cast.
  • Oh Crap: Robot Dr. Wily gets a fantastic one right after he brings Bass back to life.
  • One-Man Army: Doppelganger is a rather literal example, if he has enough power.
  • Plot Coupon: The Chaos Emeralds, and recently the Sol Emeralds.
  • Plot Hole: Used as a Plot Device here.
    • The character Ashura is a living one.
  • Ridiculously-Human Robots: X was made to be able to duplicate all human functions. All of them.
  • Reliable Traitor: Nack the Weasel.
  • Right Behind Me: Played with many times.
  • Robosexual: Kalinka and Beedra, who love Gemerl and Buzz respectively.
  • Running Gag: Mega Man's ego (or lack thereof).
  • Schedule Slip: An entirely new comic was devoted towards this called Waiting for Ryan.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Bass discusses it.
