* AfraidOfNeedles: Needle Man, ironically enough. {{Justified}} in that almost all of the ''Mega Man 3'' Robot Masters are weak to their own weapon[[note]]But this is probably more a quirk of the game's ObviousBeta status[[/note]].

With issue #55, Archie [[http://www.bumbleking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8301 put the series on hiatus]]. It's unknown if the book will return, get rebooted, or is canceled.

* VoodooShark:
** Lampshaded for the second generation of robots, but un-HandWaved.
--> '''Mega Man:''' So if you're so advanced, where are your hands?
--> '''Crash Man:''' Where are my...? Why would I need...? ''(Looks at the drills replacing his hands.)'' ...A pretty astute question, actually.
** This becomes a BrickJoke when the equally hand-less Needle Man arrives and is told to help with the heavy lifting. Crash Man empathizes with him.
** Enters fridge logic territory when you consider that multiple Robot Masters such as Mega Man, Quake Woman, Pharaoh Man, and Proto Man (the ''prototype'' Robot Master) can switch between their hands and their weapons as a free action.

Added DiffLines:

* NamedByTheAdaptation: The evil robot from ''VideoGame/MegaMan8'' is named Trio, finally giving the [[NoNameGiven otherwise unnamed]] character something to be referred by.

* DeconReconSwitch: The comic viciously deconstructs the plot, characters, and ideas of the ''Mega Man'' series, examining the morality of machines having sentience and of using robots as weapons, the stress/bigotry between humans and robots, and the dangers inherent in Mega Man's powers. However it's also a reconstruction; in the end Mega Man and his allies are still heroes whose courage, idealism, and friendship carry them through the day, Wily and his minions are still the [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain wacky bad guys]] trying (and failing) to TakeOverTheWorld, and the comic makes a point of showing that even if there are hardships, humans and robots can still coexist as equals and overcome problems through their cooperation.

* EmotionlessGirl: Horrifyingly deconstructed. Quake Woman is emotionless at first because after she was injured in a cave-in, Lalinde was terrified by the fact that she was starting to consider a robot a daughter so while making repairs she destroyed Tempo's personality. This failed to remove her empathy towards Tempo and only caused her to become plagued with guilt. After "Spiritus Ex Machina" she restores Tempo's emotions, when she realizes this [[spoiler:though unfortunately she wasn't the same Tempo compared to what she previously was as revealed in issue 35]].

It's softened with the later reveal that [[spoiler:Tempo's IC chip was damaged in the cave-in so it wasn't ''entirely'' Lalinde's fault]].


Added DiffLines:

* InformedFlaw: The series states that X and other Reploids are the first robots with true free will, yet Rock, Roll, and ''especially'' Blues can think, reason, feel emotions to the point of having tear ducts, and even bend the laws of robotics.

** Several. Big Eyes appear on the [[InMediaRes first page of the first issue]] and the iconic Yellow Devil shows up soon after on page five. The equally iconic Sniper Joe appears on page four of issue 2. [[spoiler: There is also the Chaos Devil in the cross over.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MergingTheBranches: Issue 55's preview of ZX provides a rather clear indication that Flynn had plans to include all four protagonists in the same timeline, instead of the split-timeline approach the actual games took.

The final issue, meanwhile, has Doctor Light [[spoiler:witnessing all the things Dr. Wily will do, and the suffering that will happen long after both of their deaths, but also the hope of seeing the various future Mega Men, all fighting for peace, just like Rock.]]



** In issue 49, Roll suggests that if some of Wily's Robot Masters don't want to be reprogrammed, maybe they can make [[VideoGame/MegaMan7 a robot museum to live in]].
