Megaman's established himself over the course of those years with continued developer push. You can see it in his crossovers, fanart, song covers, and whatever over the course of 30 years while RDR2 was content to release and be done.Granted, but Shantae has an entire franchise that's been around for 20 years. 2B has been around for 3 years.
Like, every Mega Man game has probably sold less than Red Dead Redemption 2, but that doesn't make Arthur Morgan more iconic than Megaman.
Whatever you want to use to measure popularity in the widespread audience, Nier Automata's popularity has managed to eclipse every single category. Point for point, I can't think of a single thing where Shantae is more popular.
