Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge, originally released in Japan as Rockman World (ロックマンワールド? is a reading help for Japanese players), is a Game Boy game developed and published by Capcom. It was the first entry in the Mega Man sub-series to appear on a handheld gaming device, and was the first of a series of Mega Man games on the platform.

The game's story is similar to other games in the classic Mega Man series. Dr. Wily has built an army of robots, led by eight elite Robot Masters. The first four, which appeared in the original Mega Man, had their own stages, while the last four, from Mega Man 2, appear as bosses in the Wily Stages of the game.

The original Japanese title, Rockman World, is clearly different from the NES title, Rockman. Unfortunately, in the Western localization such distinction is lost, and both the NES and GB video games are called "Mega Man" on their title screens.

The game has four direct sequels on the Game Boy, following the same basic formula.
