Check out this guide to learn all about the Mega Man Battle Network 5 Version Differences between Team Colonel and Team ProtoMan versions!


    Each version has different enemy encounter lineups and their dropped chips have different codes.

    One of the main differences has basically no bearing on anything, but it’s neat. The decor and colors of many areas are completely different between versions! 


    From what I understand, Colonel version is actually more canon. It seems that some of the info revealed in this version connects to Battle Network 6 better. Sadly I like Proto Man more, so I picked that one…
