I actually think the armor IS him.
It's mentioned that, by the time MMZX series started, humans are implementing Reploid aspects into themselves, and Reploids are given a 'life-span' like that of a human. It is then implied (if not outright stated) that the two have become so intertwined as to actually be able to breed amongst one another.
Legends is set roughly a thousand years after all of that. It isn't beyond the scope of understanding that, by that point, they've merged into one species. This would explain GIANT ROBO-BABY amongst the Bonne's, and would likely explain why Megaman never takes off his armor.
