* ApatheticCitizens: Seen across both Acts, particularly in Act I, and viciously deconstructed.

* CallForward: "We will BUILD heroes!" Said by Wily, in what seems like irony until you realize that he's ''right'' - even Light chooses to "create a man to save the world" rather than risking his own hide. This idea that people will always search for others to build up as heroes rather than rising to the challenge themselves is the backbone of the first album's plot.

* CloudCuckooLander: The band's email "press releases" are rambling affairs which take several paragraphs before actually mentioning anything having to do with the band. Their announcement of the release date for Act II, for instance, opened with a paean to Shark Week on the Discovery Channel (including a picture of a shark with Tom Selleck's face), and included a 48-second "preview" of the album which was every track played ''at once'' to the point of being unintelligible.

** On their Twitter account, the band responded to a question about Doug Fetterman by saying a shark ate him for a week, and that's how Shark Week began.

* ArcWords: Several phrases appear in songs other than their own as a sort of foreshadowing; "Hope rides alone", "We are the dead", and "Even now there is hope for man".

*** "Light" and "fire" are predominant arc words of Act II, appearing in nearly every song with lyrics. Also, referring to the city as a machine itself.

** "Ready, willing, prepared to fight." Protoman is in "Hope rides alone," Megaman proclaims he is in "Vengeance" and challenges Wily's commander asking if he is as well. [[spoiler: Ironically, Megaman is just asking Protoman, though he doesn't know it. Yet.]]

* CrossOver: In May 2011, the Protomen were set to appear on a double bill in Nashville with none other than ''Tiffany'' of '80s pop star fame. However, [[spoiler: due to a family tragedy]] the band couldn't make it.

* DarkReprise: Not exactly, but lyrics from The Will Of One are repeated in a much darker context in The Sons Of Fate; at first they are Mega Man talking about fighting against Wily the same way his brother Protoman did, but the second time [[spoiler: they indicate Mega Man's disgust with humanity after killing Protoman, taking up his brother's nihilistic point of view himself]].

* RockOpera: Both of which end in the most depressing way possible. In the end of Act I, [[spoiler: Humanity is still enslaved, two heroes have been broken and one suffered two 'deaths': Figurative and literal.]] In the end of Act II, the world is just becoming enslaved, one hero [[spoiler: has died pointlessly,]] and the other sets out on a task [[DramaticIrony which the audience already knows is doomed to fail.]]
** Despite this, Act II ends on a high note compared to Act I. The final act of the album [[spoiler: details Joe's rebellion and attack on Wily's control tower. And following his death]], Thomas Light reads [[spoiler: the dead]] Emily's letter and realizes "This city needs [him] now," he then begins building Protoman. Also, Act II ends on a high note if you consider that [[spoiler: Protoman's belief that all men are cowards who would rather die to fight back was proven wrong, not so long ago. There was still at least one man that had the courage to fight back.]]

The first album, a self-titled release also known as ''Act I'' or ''Hope Rides Alone'', was self-published in 2005, and tells the story of how Protoman and Megaman were created to fight against Dr. Wily's regime and the very different paths their lives took. It was followed in September 2009 by ''Act II: The Father of Death'', a prequel which tells the story of how Dr. Light and Wily created artificial intelligence, and how it all went so very wrong. ''Act III'' takes place sometime after ''Act I'' and is to be released an an unspecified date. A [[https://www.twitch.tv/pax/b/330672275 live]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBWGZgbaEEQ preview]] of an ''Act III'' track was heard at PAX 2012, and a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLdi6DnpzQI second song was previewed]] at [=MAGfest=] 2015.
