* ForegoneConclusion: Subverted; if you listened to Act I, you would think the plan would outright fail, as Wily has control during that time and this is the prequel. But Light and Joe's scheme works, and the tower and telescreens are destroyed. It's then DoubleSubverted as even though it worked, it doesn't change anything.

* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: The music falling down and dying at the end musically portrays Joe's heroics as one of these.

* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: The music falling down and dying at the end musically portrays Joe's heroics as one of these. The music video makes it worse, as not only was Wily expecting someone to rebel against his authoritarian rule over the city by blowing up the tower, he was in fact relying on it to further his own plans.

* BatmanGambit: The music video for ''Light Up The Night'' and ''The Fall'' makes it clear that not only was Wily expecting someone to rebel against his authoritarian rule over the city by blowing up the tower, he was in fact relying on it to further his own plans. First, no one made any attempt to stop Joe from climbing the tower, despite one of Wily's robot guards clearly watching him as he ''rammed the doors with an exploding motorcycle''; second, [[spoiler:Wily had actually wired the tower to explode ''himself'', apparently not trusting the saboteur to do a good enough job. (The bombs may also have been intended as a final, vindictive "fuck you" to ensure that the would-be saboteur would be killed in the ensuing explosion.)]]

* CrazyPrepared: Wily built another control tower, an entire fortress, and a robot army in case his Sniper and main telescreen were attacked.



* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Subverted; Dr. Light was counting on, and Joe was willing to bet his life that Dr. Wily's broadcast tower fit this trope, but Wily [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy clearly knew better]].
