* DownerEnding:
** 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.
** Averted with both ''Battle Network'' and ''Star Force'', which both end on peaceful notes with more than a little technological optimism.



** In the ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'' manga, a specific corner of the Undernet actually houses [[ItMakesSenseInContext the ruins of an ancient civilization]] watched over by [=PharaohMan=], who claims it's been 20,537 years since he's had company. (Of course, in this telling, the Undernet is implied to be AnotherDimension, rather than part of the Internet proper).

* ThemeNaming:
** The classic series uses [Motif]-Man for the name of most of its robots, with very few exceptions. The Battle Network series inherits this.
** Starting with ''VideoGame/MegaManX'', the bosses usually involve some combination of theme and animal names; its successor series, ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManZX'' exagerrate this by creating portmanteaus of mythological and technological names.
** In ''Zero'', almost every heroic ally carries a French name. ''ZX'' inherits this.
** ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' employs a scheme similar to the ''X'' series, placing the character's source name before its motif (i.e. Taurus Fire).

** In the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series, X is a B-class hunter, while Zero is S (or Special A). Over the course of the series, X, who is just as powerful as Zero, loses his hesitation and gains the willpower necessary to match the latter's rank.
** ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' uses these for Digger licenses (higher license means you can access better dungeons). The S-Class license doesn't actually give you any special access, which is good, since the test to get it is a pain in the butt.
** ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork 2'' also has City Netbattler licenses that authorize civilians to access restricted parts of the web. Lan is technically capable of achieving [[RankInflation Rank SSS]], even though the plot doesn't care after he reaches Rank A.
