With the release of Mega Man 11 [about a month ago], and with it being 18 months since the 3rd one, I think it's time for a 4th PMMCT.
What's a "PMMCT"? Well, the Prototype Mega Man Character Tournament is something I've done once a year since 2015; it lets you, the people of Prototype, decide who the greatestestestestest official MM character off all time is [at least for now].
How does it work? Simple. Through a series of 24-hour voting poll matchups, you, the people of prototype decide which characters advance, and which ones fall to the wayside. The last one standing is the greatest for forever and all time [at least for now]!
However, we first need the characters that will be in the tournament to start with, and you all have a hand in that, too. How do you nominate? Simple:
You nominate up to 40 characters [You don't HAVE to nominate 40, but, you can nominate UP TO 40]. These can be LITERALLY ANY CHARACTER IN THE MEGA MAN UNIVERSE, so long as they've appeared in at least one official Capcom-made Mega Man video game; fangames don't count. The video game doesn't even have to have been released in North America to count; All official games are recognized as long as they're non-crossover, Capcom-licensed Mega Man video games.
This year, I'm adding a twist, though. Your list of 40 Characters are allowed to contain DOUBLES! That is, 2 of the SAME CHARACTER [but, ONLY two]! You can even have 20 double nominations if you want to!
The [64/96/128] characters that get the most nominations will make it into the tournament! If there's a tie for the bottom that creates too much of an excess of characters, You'll get to break that tie before the Tournament starts.
If you need help on even remembering or naming 40 Characters, feel free to look at these links showing how the 1st 3 PMMCT's went. You might be able to get inspirations for characters, there.
You can post your nominations here in this thread or you can PM them to me, either here on Discord. You're allowed to edit your list of nominations as many times as you want, before the final nominations deadline is reached. The deadline in question will be on Friday, November 23 at 11:59 PM, Eastern Standard Time.
If there's any questions, post them here, or find me on the MMRPG Discord. I have the same name there as I do, here.

I just updated the opening posts with direct links to the nomination and actual tourney threads for all 3 previous PMMCT's, as well. Just for COMPLETE reference.
I also added in the rule that one can edit their list as many times as they want to before 11/23's deadline; this was a rule during all previous nomination periods, as well; just forgot to list that this time. :)

For those of you that have listed "Copy Robot" and "Mega Man?" as the same character, they're recognized by Capcom as two completely different entities.
Mega Man? is not a Copy Robot. It's only a fake Mega Man. It doesn't copy the abilities of it's opponent.
Here's a video showing what Mega Man? is capable of,
...and here's a video showing what Copy Robot is capable of.
Therefore, these 2 characters will be treated as 2 separate characters. You may want to adjust your list accordingly, if either of these characters are in your list. I've also amended the opening post to state that only the 1st 40 nominations listed in all lists will be accepted.

With only 5 days remaining before nominations close, I feel like I gotta point out some of the problems in your lists, especially since, as things stand now--we'd only have enough for a 96-character tournament [instead of a 128-character one]
In order fron the top down:Retro Pikachu: Alouette and Prairie haven't been confirmed as the same character; similar appearances doesn't make them one and the same--is Mega Man the same as Mega Man X? Your list, as is, has 42 nominations as a result, so your 2 nominations for Ashe won't count [though you can still edit your list within the next 5 days in order to fix this].ThatOneEnder: Your list IS entirely valid as is, but, there's only 38 characters in it. Just sayin'.Charchar: Your list IS entirely valid as is, but, there's only 23 characters in it. Just sayin'.46namilort: Copy Robot and "Mega Man?" haven't been confirmed as the same character; similar appearances doesn't make them one and the same. Your list, as is, has 42 nominations as a result, so your 2 nominations for Galaxy Man won't count [though you can still edit your list within the next 5 days in order to fix this].crimson zero55: Though the REST of your list [38 characters] is valid, there are 2 problems with it. #1: Regarding your 3rd nomination, I can't tell if you mean Axl from MMX7 or Axle The Red from MMX5. I assume it means Axl, but, I'd rather not assume, so for now, I'm disregarding it. I'll need you to specify before Friday is out. #2: Regrading your 11th nomination, "Mega Man Zero" has been disregarded. There's no character called "Mega Man Zero", and I have no idea who or what you mean, especially as you already have a nomination of both Mega Man X AND Zero. Please clarify before Friday's out.If your name ISN'T in the above list, your list has 40 valid characters and has no problems whatsoever, as is. :)
