MegaMan Battle Network 6 is the sixth and final installment in the MegaMan Battle Network series by Capcom, released on the Game Boy Advance in 2005 (Japan) and 2006 (USA, Europe). There are two versions of the game: Cybeast Falzar and Cybeast Gregar. It introduced several new characters whilst retaining the existing ones. It arrived in two versions, each with its own Cross Changes (significantly modified Soul Unisons) and Beast Out features.
The game commences with Lan explaining the current situation in the world, but is quickly interrupted by MegaMan, who reveals that Lan is practicing for a presentation he is going to make to the class at school. At school, Lan reveals some shocking news that will shape the course of the game.
Lan Hikari is one of the two stars of the game. Along with his NetNavi, MegaMan, he has been called upon to save the world five times in the past. Can he do so again? Lan is one of the best Virus Busters in ACDC, but apart from that his grades are fairly dismal. Can he really fit in in Cyber City?
MegaMan.EXE is Lan's NetNavi, a virtual person who can explore the second reality that the Internet has become. He is actually Lan's twin brother Hub, turned into a Navi to save him from a terminal illness, HBD.
AquaMan.EXE returns from Battle Network 4 Blue Moon, once again operated by Shuko Kido. He helps Shuko with her part-time job at the aquarium, which she takes up in order to support her family, and is Lan's first Link Navi in the Falzar version.
ElecMan.EXE returns from Battle Network 1, this time operated by Count Zap's wife, Ann Zap. He makes up for the crimes committed whilst he was in the World 3 organization by maintaining the lighting in Sky Area.
EraseMan.EXE (Killerman.EXE in the Japanse version) is the Netnavi of Dark Scythe (Dark Kirisaki in the Japanese version). Him and Dark Scythe are assassins, being trained by Dusk (Dark Miyabi), operator of Shadowman.EXE.
With the Boktai series' dwindling popularity in the US, Konami had decided to not release a US version of the 3rd game. As such, Capcom had decided to remove most of the Boktai related things in the game. Gun Del Sol EX, Otenko, Django 1-3, and Hakushaku (Known as Hack Jack in US chips)1-3 were chips that were removed from the US version. Some, however, can be obtained via Gold Mystery Data. Django and Hakushaku chips both freeze the game, But the Crossover PA (Django 1, Django 2, and Django 3 in order) still works. It, and Otenko, however, use a white dot rather than the actual sprite. The normal GunDelSol chips still exist naturally in the game, aswell as the Bat Key and Django poster in Lan's room.
Another removed feature was additional areas in the game. Undernet 3 and the Immortal area were removed from the U.S. version. Graveyard 1 was also removed, while Graveyard 2 remained, renamed simply as "Graveyard". The Bat Key has a different function in the U.S. version. It opened the Immortal area in the Japanese version, while in the U.S., it simply opens a purple gate in the Graveyard which has the Attack MAX NCP.
Various effects have been changed from the previous installments. Enemies on Ice panels no longer take double damage from elec attacks, but now get freeze status when hit with an Aqua attack. Enemies in Freeze Status take double damage from Breaking Type attacks. Another new status effect is "Bubble", normally caused by the Bubble Star chip series. Enemies will be encased in a bubble, unable to act, and will take double damage from the next Elec attack. Lava, Sand and Water panels do not make a return, however, but other new panel types exist. The chips "Coming" and "Going" Roads make draw panels, which do as the name describe. Another panel, which is rare and cannot be made via chips is the Geyser, which periodically causes fire damage to those standing on top of it and may be removed if hit by an Aqua attack.
Chips are now restricted depending on their MB, and this has hence resulted in several chips coming from being Mega chips to Standard chips now, allowing the player to load more Navi chips into his folder. A Tag System also has been introduced, where the two selected chips (both chips' capacities must not exceed 60MB) are "tagged" and always appear with each other in the Custom Screen. Additionally, a notable number of chips have been given the * code, inclusive of some Navi chips, allowing more fluid unicode folders to be constructed in the game.

With the destruction of the Dark Chip factory in MegaMan Battle Network 5, Dark Chips are all but gone. That means that Battle Chips which used to be exclusive only to Dark MegaMan in previous (e.g. Anubis, Muramasa and Static) can be used by normal MegaMan now, while still holding their usual effects.
