* RecurringRiff: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKgDZrTAVrM Mega Man 1 Stage Start]] theme tends to appear a lot, though it was mostly ditched after ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX3 Mega Man X3]]''.

* AstralFinale: Most of the UsefulNotes/GameBoy series have their final levels take place in space (the fifth game does not count due to half the boss roster residing in space levels, and the only game to completely avert the space setting is the third one). As for the main games, ''VideoGame/MegaMan10'' saves its very last stage for this trope, right after the usual four stages of a traditional endgame castle. ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' also uses this in its first and third games.

* ArtifactMook: The infamous Metools. In the original Mega Man game the little hard hat guys appeared only on Guts Man's stage, which had the look of a quarry/construction site. (Guts Man himself appears to wear a hard hat) however they have since appeared in every Mega Man game on multiple levels and in massive numbers to the point that they are the most common enemy encountered.

* {{Expy}}: How many Mega Men and Rolls do we need?! (There are technically ''three'' Mega Man-Roll pairs, in the Classic series, the [[AlternateUniverse Battle Network series]], and Legends series; past that, however, there's a number of blondes running around in red or pink outfits, like [[MegaManX Alia]] and [[MegaManStarForce Harp Note]]).

** Downplayed. No matter what the outlook at the end of the individual series, almost every installment of the robotics timeline is DarkerAndEdgier than the last. The classic series takes place in a generally peaceful time interrupted by Wily's periodic attacks, but the ''X'' series is constantly on the brink of warfare against either willing or Brainwashed terrorists, and the ''Zero'' series takes place during a Dystopian age. ''ZX'' shows some more hope than these last two, but ''Legends'' take place AfterTheEnd -- way, ''way'' After the End.
