Rockman Complete Works is a lineup of video game remakes released only in Japan for the PlayStation in 1999. Rockman Complete Works contains the first six entries in the Classic Mega Man series, originally released on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The six games were released individually, each disc containing a port of the original Family Computer version as the game's "Original Mode", as well as a "Navi Mode"; "Navi Mode" features a hint system in the form of a supporting character giving tips to the player, an updated HUD, an arranged soundtrack, and other optional game modes. The games are compatible with the PocketStation peripheral, allowing the player to match up bosses from the games in a paper-rock-scissors minigame called "PokeRock". Players can also play against one another via the PocketStation's infrared sensor. All six games were later bundled with Rockman X7 in the Rockman Collection Special Box for the PlayStation 2.

The Complete Works ports of Rockman 1-6 served as the basis for the North American-exclusive Mega Man Anniversary Collection, released in 2004 for the PlayStation 2, Microsoft Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube. In addition to Mega Man 1-6, the Anniversary Collection also includes the Super Nintendo title Mega Man 7, the PlayStaion version of Mega Man 8, and the Arcade spin-offs, Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters.[1]

The Complete Works versions of all six Rockman games have also been made available on the PlayStation Store in Japan, as well as the first four games in North America, making these titles available for download on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation Vita.
