I originally wanted Dr. Wily in a sniper armor coming into the scene with the other 8 robot masters, but I didn't want him to just "drop in" because that would have required Mega Man not looking up, and whatever reason Mega Man would have for not looking up, didn't really fit that well with his character. Teleporting in didn't feel right either, so I went with the third option: Don't have Dr. Wily present at all! That state won't be permanent, however.
