* RuleOfCool: While the entire premise of the EXE franchise is basically this, the manga takes it UpToEleven. Most of the battles from Volume 5 onward reach DragonBallZ levels of over-the-top.

Added DiffLines:

** Quite a few terms are in English in the Japanese dub, including [=PET=], [=NetNavi=], World Three, Battle Chip, Program Advance, Style Change, Soul Unison, Cross Fusion, Dimensional Area, Operator and Net Saver (changed to Net Savior in the English dub).
** Whenever an Operator plugs a Navi in, they'll say "Plug in, (name of Navi)! Transmission!" in English. Also, when inserting Battle Chips, they'll say "Battle Chip, (name of Chip)! Slot in!"
** Some of the episode titles employ this too. Episode 8's original title is "Revenge Fireman!" ("Hot Tempers!" in the dub).

* ObuscatingInsanity: Invoked to spoof the games' habit of treating the main characters like nobodies despite their repetitive world-saving. After beating the WWW, Lan's name gets out and his house is raided by promoters trying to get him into their competitive netbattling tournaments, only to discover him making a scene at [=MegaMan's=] "wake"; Mayl, who's in on the ruse, takes the opportunity to suggest that Lan is only an AttentionWhore and the whole WWW affair is something he made up.

* AbortedArc: A few in the anime, but the one that sticks out the most is Bass' arc. Towards the end of ''Axess'', he made it quite clear that he was very slowly planning on making his own play for power and was shaping up to be a major villain in the next arc. In ''Stream'', however, he's banished to the [=UnderNet=] by Slur and not heard from again until the movie. And then he only shows up in the final episodes of the arc [[spoiler: to finish off Slur]] and then is never seen again.
** The Takamisaki manga spent very little time on filler, and if one paid attention, various hints about Lan's and [=MegaMan's=] relationship would crop up. And then...nothing. [[LeftHanging Not a thing]]. [[spoiler:In the games, [[BrainUploading [=MegaMan=]]] is identified as Lan's twin brother Hub, who supposedly died from a heart disease in infancy, but nothing of the sort is ever mentioned in the manga, despite noticeable buildup. Miyu even identifies [=MegaMan=] as having a ''human soul'', but no.]]

** Being only a loose adaptation, there's not much in the main story of Takamisaki's manga, but there are a number adapted sidestories that could quite easily fit into proper [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork main game]] {{Canon}}.
* AdultsAreUseless: Although they provide a lot of support, it's the kids that wind up saving the world time and time again. In the anime, ''Stream'' averts this, introducing adult members of the team. Also, from the beginning, Commander Beef and his squad.

In the anime, ''Stream'' averts this, introducing adult members of the team. Also, from the beginning, Commander Beef and his squad. The adult cross fusion characters occasionally prove to be significantly stronger than the kids. For example, at one point Lan, Fyrefox and Dusk each attack one of Dark [=MegaMan=]'s minions, and while Lan can only manage to log [=CosmoMan=] out, the other two delete their foes. Also shown when Lan and Chaud can't make a dent in [=ShadeMan=], but Yuri can.



** Especially notable in ''Stream'', where the adult cross fusion characters come off as significantly stronger than the kids. For example, at one point Lan, Fyrefox and Dusk each attack one of Dark [=MegaMan=]'s minions, and while Lan can only manage to log [=CosmoMan=] out, the other two delete their foes. Also shown when Lan and Chaud can't make a dent in [=ShadeMan=], but Yuri can.
* AlternateHistory: In the original 'verse, robot technology is the way of the future; in ''NT Warrior'', it's networks. Carrying over from the games, [[ForWantOfANail Tadashi Hikari chose to study network technology instead of robotics like Wily did]]. Most of the Robot Masters from previous [=MegaMan=] titles appear in this series as [=NetNavi=] programs with different personalities.

** Slur, the extra terrestial navi and Duo's [[TheDragon second-in-command]] from ''Stream''.
** The Asteroid Navi operators in ''Stream'' excluding the Neo WWW members and Ivan Chillski, who are from the games themselves.
** Trill, the child navi allowing [=MegaMan=] to beast out.
** [=CutMan=]'s brothers, who appear far more frequent than even [=CutMan=] does. They actually posed a threat against Lan and Mega in their debut episode, though their competence reduced after that.

*** Other notables from the manga include Rhythm, a joke character created by Takamisaki to be Blues' answer to [=RockMan's=] Roll, and the Bug-riser, an EldritchAbomination that premiered in a promotional manga chapter dedicated to the ''Battle Network'' arcade game "Battle Chip Stadium". (The Bug-Riser was featured in a couple of Giga Chips from Battle Network 6).

* EagleLand: Amerope (The anime's English tends to be phonetic, so you may see "Ameroppa" instead), known as Netopia in the games, is an amalgamation of America and Europe as a whole (as you may have guessed). It is the most featured foreign country in the series. In the anime, Lan visits it as part of his Championship Tour in the early second season. In the manga, he visits it [[spoiler: to try and collect [=MegaMan=], who's on the run from military detention.]]

** The manga's even worse. Lan winds up bleeding and badly beat up on more than one occasion, and due to the fact that it lacks the animation constraints of the anime, Navi wounds look a lot more like, well, ''open wounds.'' [=MegaMan=] even ''tears [=ShadeMan=] apart.'' LITERALLY!

* TheWorfEffect:
** Mega positively ''humiliates'' [=GutsMan=] during his premiere battle in the anime, rendering him an irrevocable ButtMonkey for the rest of the show's run.
** In full force in the manga. Its particularly bad since the stories had a tendency of introducing new bad guys literally ''just after'' the last ones were defeated, with the heroes saved only by a new set of allies arriving on the scene. Why these allies have never bothered to show up before hand is '''never''' explained.

** Aside from certain names like [=BubbleMan=], chances are if they're from the third game and did not get DemotedToExtra they are removed entirely instead. Cossak, Sean, Mamoru, Alpha and Serenade are plot-relevant characters, but none of them make an appearance here. This is caused by Battle Network 3 being released months after the anime is aired, which covers mostly the first two games. By the time the Gospel arc ended, ''3'' is already out for a long time and the series is preparing to transition into ''Axess'' (which was heavily influenced by ''Battle Network 4''), so there is simply no place to put most of these characters or the plot elements in.
