Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge, known in Japan as Rockman EXE Battle Chip GP (ロックマンエグゼ バトルチップGP?), is a video game developed by Inti Creates and published by Capcom for the Game Boy Advance (GBA) handheld game console. It is a spin-off title in the Mega Man Battle Network series. The game saw a simultaneous August 8, 2003 release in Japan on the WonderSwan Color and Swan Crystal titled Rockman EXE N1 Battle (ロックマンエグゼ N1バトル?). The GBA version was localized in North America and Europe the following March.
Taking place within the timeline of the Battle Network series, Battle Chip Challenge involves a battling tournament called the "Battle Chip GP" among various pairs of online avatars called "NetNavis" and their human operators. Rather than directly control the player character through the traditional real-time tactical role-playing battles of the other Battle Network games, Battle Chip Challenge tasks the player with creating a "Program Deck" made up of abilities called "Battle Chips". The game randomly selects chips for the player and executes them in a duel with a computer-controlled opponent. Battle Chip Challenge suffered a relatively negative critical reception.

“It is a pleasure to stand upon the shore, and to see ships tossed upon the sea: a pleasure to stand in the window of a castle, and to see a battle and the adventures thereof below: but no pleasure is comparable to standing upon the vantage ground of truth ... and to see the errors, and wanderings, and mists, and tempests, in the vale below.”
—Francis Bacon (15611626)
“Let a man find himself, in distinction from others, on top of two wheels with a chainat least in a poor country like Russiaand his vanity begins to swell out like his tyres. In America it takes an automobile to produce this effect.”
