** The game was originally going to have two female boss robots, but the designer was more focused on the radar and optical camouflage aspects of Mighty No. 8's description than its being female, and Inafune liked the resulting gunman design, so Mighty No. 3 ended being the lone female of the boss roster... at least, prior to the reveal that Mighty No. 2 is female.

Had they kept with it, it would have resulted in GenderEqualEnsemble for the robots.[[note]]Beck, Pyro, Bat, Avi, Mic, and Brand for male; Call, Cryo, Dyna, Shade, Ray, and [[spoiler:Trinity]] for female.[[/note]]

* DevelopmentHell: The Mighty No. 9 animated series, which was funded on Kickstarter alongside the game, was supposed to debut in early 2016. A teaser trailer was released but nothing else on the series has materialized as of 2017, nor has there been any reason given for the delay. The handheld ports are in a similar situation.

* TroubledProduction: ''Mighty No. 9'' went through some very serious delays and problems in regards to funding. The game had three huge delays, stretching the initial release period from 2013 to ''2016'', which the developers claimed were due to a number of issues (most suspiciously, fixing a bug in the multiplayer modes, which were implemented as stretch goals). Despite gaining far more than they asked for in regards to money on Kickstarter, the project had numerous funding issues and several times used Kickstarter again to drum up more profits for things like DLC, movies and TV shows, none of which the original Kickstarter group wanted. Keiji Inafune also attempted to start another project for ''Videogame/RedAsh'', which flopped rather spectacularly when several dubious methods for funding the game (like revealing at the end of the Kickstarter for ''Red Ash'' that '' '''the game was already funded by a Chinese company''' '' and that the funds gotten from Kickstarter were to expand "the scope of the game") came to light to the general public. Fast forward to 2016, and the delays, funding issues and the release of the nearly memetically terrible "Masterclass" trailer was the final nail in the coffin for a number of online fanbases. The game released to mediocre to bad reviews, and there are those hold the game up as an example of being careful who you give your money to on Kickstarter, with almost all faith in Keiji Inafune from some (if not most) fans being lost.

!! Other Trivia
* Despite Call's FanNickname of Not!Roll, her initial design as pointed out [[http://mightysnookums.tumblr.com/post/71569767711/different-face-proportions-call-does-not-have-a here]] is reminiscent of [[Videogame/MegamanZX Aile]]. Likewise, Call C resembles Kimo Kimo's [[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110402220653/megaman/images/5/57/MMURoll.jpg artwork of Roll]] for the cancelled ''Megaman Universe'' game.

** Beck's original absorption ability was going to allow him to change forms, ala Franchise/{{Kirby}}, by dashing into enemies. This was replaced with passive bonuses gained on kills instead, with Beck only changing forms based on the other Mighty Numbers.
