Eugene Chaud & Proto Man
An elementary school student who is also an accomplished government-approved Official NetBattler that has tackled many cases. His cool and collected, high-performance Navi, ProtoMan, is a force to be reckoned with and feared among net criminals.

Lan’s incredibly wealthy classmate. With her high IQ, she was able to skip grades and is actually two years younger than Lan. Glide is her well-mannered butler-type Navi.
Dex Oyama & Guts Man
Lan’s classmate and somewhat of a bully. His Navi, GutsMan, is incredibly strong, but the pair still have trouble defeating Lan and MegaMan in NetBattles.
Yuichiro Hikari & Haruka Hikari
Lan’s mother and father. Yuichiro is a genius scientist specializing in the development of NetNavis. He’s very knowledgeable about programs. Currently working at SciLab, he’s always busy. In fact, he’s so busy that he’s very rarely seen at home, even on his days off. Since Yuichiro is always away, it’s Haruka who looks after the Hikari household. She’s very good at cooking and has recently gotten into baking bread.
An individual famed for his NetBattle mastery. He uses a variety of NetNavis and spends all of his time researching battle techniques. Wanting to raise the very best NetBattlers, he often challenges young NetBattlers who walk the path, teaching them valuable techniques and information in the process.
Baryl & Colonel
A former soldier of the Netopia Network Corp whose exploits earned him the nickname “Invincible Baryl.” No matter the predicament, he always ascertains and takes the correct course of action. The bond between Colonel and Baryl transcends that of a simple Operator and Navi pairing, and the two soldiers have seen each other through numerous battles out in the field.
A genius scientist and criminal mastermind, he is the leader of the NetCrime organization WWW (World Three). For some reason he holds a great hatred for Net Society and will stop at nothing to see it undone.
