Fix the Megaman tag

Any source for this? A quick search seems to suggest that Rock man is the Japanese name for Mega Man.

But, why do we have to use his Japanese name instead of the one most people know him as?

because nearly every show or game here is japanese with their japanese titles and characters(otherwise it´s tagged as "rule_34"). only rule34 uses other names.

We use whatever the original name was. Since the game is (I assume) originally Japanese, that name makes sense. Same goes for using the Japanese names for anime instead of their English equivalent (of course, written using roman letters otherwise it'd be a pain to search). It shouldn't be a problem because there exists an alias so searching for the name used outside of Japan will still give you the right results.
