Redips was a hoax Reploid made by Dr. Wily using 'Supra Force Metal'. He appeared to be extremely powerful and quickly took over the Robot Masters using a loophole that identified him as a command figure, soon changing their programming to view him much in the same way they previously viewed Dr. Wily. The intention of Redips was to create a need for Dr. Light to create a similarly powerful super robot named Gamma and for Wily to then steal it. Unfortunately Dr. Light was well aware of this and, in fact, double bluffed Wily and attempted to use the device to defeat Bass and a squad of Robot Masters.
- Supra Force Metal - Though force metal had been discovered at the time, Wily was the first to 'discover' Supra Force Metal and use it as a power source. When Redips was defeated the Supra Force Metal was revealed to simply be the name of a hamster on a wheel that create the energy to power the Reploid.
