* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: The band took a break from their rock opera to perform at Whiskerino, creating an [[http://www.protomen.com/BeardsGoingNowhere/ epic song about beards]]. ** It actually manages to subvert the trope as well as playing it straight: It's not a part of the canon, but reading the lyrics give the impression that it's written from the view of a pre-Act II Light. Beard's Going Nowhere could also be the ''happy'' ending, where Light and Emily escaped the ruined City.

From my understanding an Ultimate Universe isn't so micuch 'gritty and dark' as it is 'combining sveeral established elements/universes into one.'
* UtimateUniverse: Alternate Character Interpretations? Check. Expansion on a classic storyline? Check. Darker and edgier, with a bigger and more brooding tone? Check. Yeah, it's pretty much Ultimate Mega Man as a rock opera.

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, likely 2015. A [[http://www.twitch.tv/pax/b/330672275 live]] [[http://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.
