Mega Man Star Force follows the adventures of Geo Stelar and his extraterrestrial partner Omega-Xis, a duo capable of merging through "Electromagnetic Wave Change" to become Mega Man. Together, they combat various EM wave beings that threaten to conquer or destroy the Earth, especially the invading FM Planet's forces.
The series has a strong theme of strength through bonds. The first series borrows many elements from astrology and space, whereas the second series focuses more on cryptozoology (such as the Loch Ness Monster).
