* BadAss: This version of Quick Man. Powerful, cool, collected, and able to use his powers in such a way to disable his rival, Flash Man, with ease.
** Bass/Forte, Proto Man/Blues, Rock, and Elec Man also qualify.
** Shadow Man.



* QuirkyMinibossSquad: The portrayal of the third game's Robot Masters during "Metal Heart" (but a lot less quirky in their first chronological appearance, "Asteroid Blues.") The second game's robots, on the other hand, weren't quirky [[BadAss in the least]].

** Then there's [[spoiler: Duo]] who within 5 panels of his introduction effortlessly defeats one of the Stardroids [[BadAss in one blow]]

* ABoyAndHisX: A Boy And His Dog, a Boy And His Bird, a Boy and His Cat, a Boy and His Rocket Powered Sled.
** And of course, Bass and Treble.



* AdaptationalBadass: One of the series's defining traits. Almost all the combat-capable robots are shown as much more powerful than in the games. The real winners here, though, are the Stardroids. In MegaManV, Dr. Light was able to create a weapon to defeat them after a single encounter, leaving them as basically the same as Robot Masters. In this series, they are on such a different level from Earth's robots that it's not even funny. Case in point, twice Saturn completely no-sells electric attacks from Earth's robots, which is actually his weakness in game.

** Averted by Rock & Roll Light. Rock plays it straight in one storyline [[spoiler:but it turns to be Copy-Rock, who subverts the trope because he's basically doing what he was programmed to do. May count as a DoubleSubversion.]] Alternatively, Rock becoming a hero is a subversion.

** Justified and invoked by both Light and Wily in Gigamix Vol. 2 [[spoiler:at the very onset of robotic evolution as proven by a flashback to their initial partnership. By giving robots 'souls', they could adapt and achieve more than just simple programming and instruction could, fully aware of the problems this could result in.]]

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Used for characterization in chapter three, where Rock is surprised [[McNinja Shadowman]] didn't already know what a Yellow Devil's weakness was. It becomes a plot point in Asteroid Blues, where it's [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] when Dr. Light reveals that [[spoiler:he couldn't bring himself to trust Dr. Wily, so he deliberately built Gamma with a weak spot,]] [[ProperlyParanoid just in case.]]

* VillainHasAPoint: When the Stardoids [[CurbStompBattle all but demolish the Light Numbers]], Dr. Light refuses to repair his own "children" as long as they intend to return to battle (and possibly be destroyed permanently.) After Wily offers to repair them instead, and Light gets pissed at him for it, Wily goes on an epic tirade about [[WhatTheHellHero how hypocritical it is for Light]] to deny his creations the power of ''choice''.

** This really shows in the first volume of Gigamix, which has two stories separated by a number of years. In the first, he's entirely taken in by Dr. Wily. In the second, [[spoiler:he knows an anagram when he hears one, among other demonstrations of skill,]] so he's quite GenreSavvy.

That is, until recently, when publisher UDON announced that they would be bringing the series to the West. All three volumes have already been released, with the latter two including bonus content. For example: Volume 2 includes supplementary materials, like interviews with Kenji Inafune, Robot Master profiles, and comic strips based on the Soccer game (which are much less serious than the actual Megamix manga).

Due to the success of ''Mega Man 9'' and ''Mega Man 10'', the series is getting a re-release in Japan as ''Rockman Gigamix'', which collects the original volumes while also adding new material by Ariga. UDON has licensed Gigamix, and published all three of the new volumes as of November 2011.
