Down to the fight. Bass possesses a huge advantage against Proto Man from the get-go; Proto Man is currently experiencing a defect in his energy system. This defect is slowly killing him. Bass might be able to exploit this weakness, though the resulting explosion might just take Bass out as well.
Take that energy imbalance out of the picture, and the odds still greatly favor Bass. While Proto Man has great strength, defense thanks to his shield, and arguably better strategy (and definitely better stealth techniques), Bass's transformations with Treble and his powers from "Mega Man and Bass" give him a decided advantage. Proto Man has a knack for survival, however, and I wouldn't put it past him to pull several wins of his own by sheer resourcefullness.
Result. I give Bass 7/10.
And, Dragoncloud? Battle Network and the Original Series do not take place in the same Universe. According to Capcom, they are different entities.
Also, Bass has never battled Proto Man in the Original Series. They converse in Power Fighters and in Mega Man and Bass, but they've never fought.
I'm gonna have to go back and check on that one then, i think it might've been bass pretending to be hurt after fighting shademan then...it's been a while since i've played.
and i never said that existed in the same universe, my point is that originally, Bass was intended to be non existent in the battle network universe so you had to have some kind of theory, it was more of a smartelic fanboy fantasy than an actual consideration however.

definitely bass, he's a good rival for megaman (classic series), protoman had his moments in the past, plus, bass can gain even more power by fusing with his metal hound (dunno the name)... it's treble
