* AdultFear: Explores the 'seeing your child hurt' and 'what if they didn't come home' variants. One that takes the cake is Lan, an ten-year old child, almost got hit by a truck by crossing a (supposedly empty) street. Also, ''lots of bystanders were watching'' the event.

* AdaptationalBadass: Most navis, but special mention goes to Gospel, which Megaman has to beat three times over a volume to take that dog down for good.
* AvengingTheVillain: [[spoiler: Dr. Regal shows up at the end of the series after his father’s death]].
* BashBrothers: Not as often in the other works, but Megaman and Protoman still shows up from time to time.
* BeamSpam: The battle against the Zero Virus is this.
* BerserkButton: This time, its increased to curbstomp levels when anyone hurts any of Megaman’s friends. Just ask Metalman.

* BrownNote: [=ShadeMan's=] screech has the power to wreck havoc to nearby buildings.
* BlobMonster: Alpha.
* CanineCompanion: Averted, Gospel isn’t a partner of Bass this time.
* CerebusSyndrome: Downplayed. Alternates between serious and comedic chapters.
* ChestBurster: [[spoiler: Bass GS]] leaves his host, [[spoiler: the real Bass]], from his back. [[spoiler:GS]] then proceeds to [[spoiler: [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness blast him (and an alarmed yet confused Shademan) without hesitation all the while stealing his likeness]] (with a darker palette for the viewers to tell the difference)]].

Which, [[DragonInChief he shows his true loyalty against Wily’s ‘weaker’ subordinates]]- [[spoiler:any navi who shows the slightest hint of leaving or betraying [[GenreSavvy gets killed right then and there]]]]. No question asked, no hesitation.
* DetachmentCombat: Gospel can only pull this off with his head.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: While it doesn’t take the ''fights'' from ''Rockman.EXE'' manga more brutal, ''Battle Story'' doesn’t hold back on the '''deaths'''. And the deaths are [[KilledOffForReal permanent]]. (Most of them, anyway. The few are only implied).
** As to hammer the final note near the ending,[[spoiler:Dr. Wily dies by being crushed under the rubble of his laboratory!]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler: Bass GS, being a parasite]], picked up his formal way of speaking from the [[AffablyEvil real deal]]. He [[TheSociopath completely drops the manners]] later, though.
* FusionDance: Not really a fusion, since [[spoiler: an uncousiness Bass GS and the real Bass fused as Bass doesn’t want to wreak havoc again, but as the real Bass warned Megaman before, it creates complete amnesia for Bass after and he flees.]]
* FlunkyBoss: Gospel, with the [[spoiler:clones of the decreased navis which Megaman killed before]].
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Lan gives a punch of this to Sean after the battle of Grave. It works.
* HeroicBSOD: Lan suffers this greatly when Megaman dies under Alpha. [[spoiler: Megaman comes back later, though]].

* IgnoredEnemy: When Megaman gets the Muramasa from Shadowman, [[spoiler:Bass GS]] patiently waits but when the conversation drags on, [[spoiler: GS]] proceeds to blast him down without warning, which Megaman narrowly avoids at the last second.
* ItsAllAboutMe: [=BubbleMan=] , full stop.
* LateToTheTragedy: Serenade scolds themself after [[spoiler: Alpha already took over a majority of the internet and navis]].
* LimitedWardrobe: Downplayed. While Lan normally wears his iconic outfit, he can wear different outfits on special occasions or for safety reasons in his battles.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler: Bass GS]] taunts Megaman on the [[spoiler: ‘deaths’ of the real Bass and Shadowman.]] Megaman ''almost'' lost it right then and there, even attacking [[spoiler: GS]] without Lan’s consent, which Lan has to yell his name to bring him back to his senses.
* MartialPacifist: Bass, of all navis. All he (and [=ShadowMan=]) just want to do is to look over his own part of Undernet from away the chaos. [[spoiler:This makes him all the available for him to be brainwashed. He stays always reserved and polite and bears Megaman no malice until the end after being rescued]].
* NonMaliciousMonster: Alpha, but revved up to be easily mistaken for an OmnicidalManiac.
* PuppeteerParasite: [[spoiler: Bass GS]] to the [[spoiler:real Bass.]] Unlike the games where [[spoiler:Gospel]] is a failed clone, this is one that [[spoiler:’’lives’’ off the real deal]] to watch over the chaos without [[spoiler:Bass]] knowing of him.
* SurpriseCreepy: On some arcs, there will be an subtle ArtShift.
* RecurringExtra: Expect lots of familiar faces on the background. Even Lan openly talks to a [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Servbot]] in the first volume.

* 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 Under Net 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 Takimisaki 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 Mega Man]] 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.]]
* AdaptationExpansion: On the flip side, the anime has a few new things to show us, such as the inventor of the Copyroids, Meijin's ex-girlfriend. Other characters such as Tory, Laika, Dingo, and Ms Yuri

* 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 manga, Lan and [=MegaMan=] are given unofficial invitations to an [=anti-WWW=] task force filled with [=NetNavis=] piloted by competent adults picked specifically to take down Wily's organization. After everyone [[TheWorfBarrage gets in a hit against the Life Virus]], [[GenreBlindness they celebrate]]...and [[RedshirtArmy then get annihilated]], leaving only [[ConservationOfNinjutsu Mega Man and Proto Man]].
** 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 Mega Man titles appear in this series as [=NetNavi=] programs with different personalities.
* BigDamnHeroes: Every main character and most of the secondary cast gets a couple of these. Netto/Lan usually has at least one an episode, especially once Axess starts. Enzan/Chaud has some truly awesome ones mid-Axess, [[spoiler:probably to make up for having to turn his Navi evil a few episodes later.]]
** [=MegaMan=] saves [=ProtoMan=] this way (and vice versa) at least once in the Manga, most notably when ProtoMan is about to bite it under attack from Gospel. He immediately starts grousing for [=MegaMan=] to back off, and [=MegaMan=] [[CasualDangerDialog teases him for taking himself so seriously]].

** In the Manga, [=SharkMan=] is, well, much less plot-significant, and more of a {{Jerkass}} than his Anime [[TheAce counterpart]]; then again, Dex and [=GutsMan=] didn't help things by lying to him and Masa about their abilities.



** Maylu also develops a fair few Tsundere tendencies, especially Axess on. (Ironically, her game counterpart was originally explicitly meant to be one, but this was thwarted by the higher-ups).

* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: While the battles in which the bad guys are in a completely separate building than the Net Savors are justifiable, WWW and Regal would have won ''long'' ago if they were willing to, oh, I don't known, ''punch Lan and co'' while they're busy with their PET units? This is sometimes averted in the manga, in which Lan and Chaud take on any injuries Mega Man and Proto Man sustain due to their synchronization. The Darkloids even manage to separate Lan and Mega Man at one point, and then directly attack Lan.
** Notably averted in one episode of Stream. Megaman defeats Beastman, but instead of Inukai yielding and running off like most villains and he himself usually does, he sics his pet lion on Lan in the real world where Megaman can't help him. Fortunately Famous runs in with about a dozen Net Police officers, odds that even having the help of a lion wouldn't work against. Inukai does the same thing against Jasmine but fails thanks to Hoshi the dolphin saving her.
** One of episode of Axess has Sword Man attack Lan before he can cross fuse with Mega Man.

** Since the Gospel Leader is a robot, [[spoiler:Sean Obihiro]] doesn't appear in the anime.
** Chances are if they're from the third game and did not get DemotedToExtra, they are removed entirely instead. Cossak, Sean, Mamoru and Serenade are either plot-relevant characters or a post game boss, but none of them make an appearance here. Interestingly this is the same game that references the anime itself.
** From [=Battle Network 4=], Atsuki Homura and Terry Jomon ([=BurnerMan and SparkMan=]'s operators respectively) didn't show up, though not their Navis.



** Hikawa Tohru (Tory Froid) in the games was a satellite character with a generic sprite. In the anime, he had an original design, was Iceman's operator instead of his father, and became part of TheTeam. And then this was Downplayed in ''Axess'', where he was relegated to "recurring character" status with Ms. Mari and Rush (to be fair, Dex and Yai were so completely DemotedToExtra that they left the main cast entirely), but by ''Stream'' he was demoted even further to just occasional appearances. An episode in Beast+ basically [[LampshadeHanging devoted itself to]] how bizarre it was that he and [=IceMan=] had become significant again.

In the Anime he becomes a member of the main cast, more involved in the plot than just about any other character from the same games, barring the ones that were already main characters. Heck, by Stream he'd gotten more focus than most of them! By Beast, he's a full member of the PowerTrio with Lan and Chaud.

For 5 it was Dingo, who becomes a regular instead of a recurring character like everyone else and remains so for Beast, even though most of the other characters from his debut game had left the show at that point.

** Nearly every scene in Beast where there's an ungodly amount of viruses charging at the heroes, the viruses themselves will just be CG duplicates of one another. Used sparingly, probably for budget reasons.

** For a more [[RunningGag comical example]], in Rockman.EXE we have Aki-Chan's hit single ''Install Your Heart''. Ever since the episode that first introduced Aki-Chan, any time any character starts singing, whether it's on stage or just a character singing to himself while he works, it will be that song.

In the same episode, Lan uses some Soul Unison/Double Soul Navi chips that were never obtained in the dub, such as Wood Soul and Wind Soul.
** Also in the Japanese version Yaito's family company is a game company "Gapcom" while Enzan's family is IPC a tech company. In the dub this is reversed, with Yai's family having the Ayanotech tech company and Chaud having Blazequest games, presumably so Yai comes off as more respectable than the initally jerkish Chaud. The problem is Yai's company and her wealth are only ever used for filler or gag purposes in the anime, while IPC ends up being kind of important plotwise from Axess on, with them developing important tech, such as the PET upgrades for each season. They then try to dance around the issue.
** The German Dub of ''[=NT Warrior=]'' contains a few, since only 42 of the episodes were dubbed at all. While most of the undubbed episodes were just filler, some important plot points were lost, like the episode where Princess Pride spends a day as a [[KingIncognito Princess Incognito]] with Lan, or the episode "The good dog Rush", where Rush appeared in the real world for the first time.

Come Axess, ''Axess'', Lan became a massive Idiot Hero with an ego that repeatedly limited his effectiveness... and he suddenly had ''[[PlotHole absolutely no idea]]'' that Masa and Commander Beef were the same person (which [[{{Retcon}} everybody else suddenly knew]] as obvious fact, just as they knew Black Rose and Miyu Miyu were Saloma Sal and Miyuki).

** In Axess following the retool of Lan being a Net Savior Dex and Yai move out of the country, to keep their more silly aspects out of the more serious plot, although they'd return for an occasional episode from time to time and the climax of the seasons. Dex would eventually move back in Stream, and remain there for good. Yai would also move back in Beast, but the action would quickly move to Beyondard which she didn't go to. Tory never actually moved away, but appeared less and less as Lan spent less time at school and move saving the world.
** Since the Net Saviors basically took over their role in the plot the Net Agents also left the country, only appearing once in Axess for a visit and never again (Sal also had a seperate episode for Wood soul)
** World 3 ALSO left the country, to move to Jawaii and run their curry shop and only reappeared in Axess for 2 episodes (3 for Match because of Fire Soul). In Stream, Yahoot returned with Dex to open a Japanese branch and since then the other members would occasionally show up there as well.
** In Stream, Chaud is stationed overseas a few episodes in (to keep him from stealing Lan's thunder and making the fights too easy) and stayed there until Beast, although he'd return for big events like the movie and Shademan's return and also had a few episodes focusing on him and Raoul.
** Except for Dingo the Cross Fusion members who all appeared frequently in Stream all went home in Beast (or in the case of Nenji and Miyabi just stopped appearing) but they returned for the finale.
* RichBitch: Yai/Yaito, even though she's one of the heroes. Also Ms. Millionaire/Ms. Millions, who combines MysteriousWoman with TheVamp. [[spoiler: Her Beyondard version is actually dirt poor.]]

* TheWorfBarrage: Yai likes to demonstrate her wealth (her ''father's'' wealth, mind you) by throwing down incredibly rare and proportionately powerful Battle Chips for kicks. Because she has no battle sense whatsoever, this can lead to absolutely ''humiliating'' defeats, such as when she has Glyde deploy a Paladin Sword against Number Man, lose to a ''Barrier'', and then proceed to lose the fight.

It trickles down to Mega Man and Proto Man too, but aside from when Lan is in Full Synchro with Mega Man it's mostly on Protoman's end due to both [[NotSoStoic him and Chaud having a shorter fuse than their game and anime counterparts.]] Later during the Nebula Arc this also develops between Lan and Dingo.

Needless to say, Mega Man is NOT pleased when this happens.

However, nothing is ever ideal. The internet is under [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed almost constant threat]] from a number of villainous entities, most notably the [=WWW=] (pronounced "World Three"). The son of Dr. Light, 10-year-old Lan (Netto) Hikari and his partner, [=MegaMan.EXE=] (Rockman), find themselves dealing with everyday life ''and'' taking down said villainous entities that threaten to destroy the Net and the world along with it. They won't just be fighting online; when malevolent entities strike, the machine system connected to that part of the hardware will often malfunction dangerously which means Lan will have to take as much initiative offline to stop threats as [=MegaMan=] does in Net Battles. For example, Lan's and [=MegaMan's=] introduction to the world of crimefighting has the pair take down an arsonist who set housefires using electronic ovens.

''Mega Man NT Warrior'' is the anime and manga adaptation of the ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'' series (''Battle Network Rockman.EXE'' in Japan, and later just ''Rockman.EXE''). Specifically, it's Viz Media's Western title for the anime and manga, referred to as Rockman EXE in Japan. The manga had 16 volumes and the anime had 5 series (Rockman EXE, Axess, Stream, Beast, and Beast+) along with a movie, though only EXE and Axess got an official English release. Despite all being under the same label and sharing the same basic concept, both the anime and the manga are separate entities from the original GameBoyAdvance games.
