Glyde.EXE is a character from the Mega Man Battle Network series of role-playing games. Glyde.EXE is not suited for battle, and must rely on the rare and powerful Battle Chips in his operator Yai's collection. His character is based on Glyde from The Misadventures of Tron Bonne.
Glyde is not considered a combat Navi and relies on the rare Chips Yai has to provide devastatingly powerful attacks. Thanks to Yai's wealth, she is able to get her hands on more exclusive Chips than the others. Also, Glyde has a level seven security license, allowing him access to networks other Navis would not be able to. His demeanor towards Yai is akin to that of a butler. While he may come off as a bit "snooty", he is still good friends with MegaMan.EXE, Roll.EXE, and GutsMan.EXE. Despite appearing in most of the games, he is never fought, nor does he even have actual battle sprites and Battle Chips, though he is shown fighting in the anime.
Like in the games, he acts as a butler to Yai, and rarely battles; though, he is forced to fight NumberMan near the beginning of the series. He isn't a particularly strong Navi, but has many rare and powerful Battle Chips to assist him. Glyde also has a Glyde Cannon to use as a default Weapon. During his and Yai's debut, he is shown to be a gentleman to Roll, but ignores the male NetNavis. He is used by Yai to fiddle with the mansion's security to mess with Lan and Dex.
During the traffic light incident, Yai needs to go to the bathroom and sends Glyde into the traffic light Net to investigate. He deletes several Mettaurs with his Glyde Cannon, but is soon attacked by WackoMan (MagicMan, in the games). MegaMan jacks in to help, but they are both overwhelmed by WackoMan. However, MegaMan is able to help Glyde defeat him.
