Mega Man Zero 3, known as Rockman Zero 3 (ロックマンゼロ3) in Japan, is the third game in the Zero era, developed by Inti Creates, published by Capcom and released in 2004 for the Game Boy Advance.

The game was later re-released as part of the Mega Man Zero Collection on the Nintendo DS in 2010 and a native port was made as part of the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection on multiple other systems in 2020.


Having taken the Dark Elf from its resting place, sealed in the depths of Neo Arcadia, Elpizo was sure he would possess ultimate power. But it turned out to be too much for him to control, and he was defeated at the hands of Zero. They were able to avoid a repeat of the tragedy that was the Elf Wars, but behind the relief was a shadowy figure who had been hoping and praying for the revival of the Dark Elf for a long time.

And so, one day, long after the Dark Elf nightmare has passed and the Neo Arcadia attacks have subsided, news that a giant spaceship has crashed down on a snowy plan makes its way to the Resistance. Learning that there is an energy reaction at the crash site as strong as the Dark Elf. Ciel, alongside Zero and her friends in the Resistance, sets off to investigate.[1]

Alongside the release of Rockman Zero 3 in Japan, Capcom released a series of 100 collectible cards representing various characters in the Zero era. 80 of these cards contained E-Reader functionality featuring modifications to Zero 3, and 20 were artwork of series events.
