* BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: [[spoiler:When Geo discovers Sonia has undergone a sudden FaceHeelTurn late in the second game, he's understandably stunned and heartbroken. Upon learning this, Luna insists that Sonia did so in order to keep him from hurting himself and gets so upset ''at Geo'' that she nearly starts crying. The game kind of glosses over the fact that Sonia's decision would only make sense if she suddenly lost faith in Geo; which got swept under the rug so that Geo can be wholly blamed instead. [[NotWhatISignedFor This, of course, backfires on Sonia]]]].

** The ''Ghost Crisis'' movie's (''Star Force 2'') hero is the [[{{Film.Ghostbusters}} Ghost Duster]]. Pulls double-duty as a Shout Out to LuigisMansion, given that he's carting a vacuum cleaner around.

** The Final Boss of ''Star Force 2'' is continuously spawning energy and forming it with its will into even solid objects. [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Like drills]].

Added DiffLines:

* HatesMySecretIdentity: Luna the ClassRepresentative treats Geo like dirt, while admiring his alter ego Mega Man, especially after he saves her from an enemy attack.

* DoNotAdjustYourSet: Lady Vega and Mr. King both make pronouncements this way. King doesn't settle for TV, though -- instead, he broadcasts directly to everyone's Hunter-VG.

* TheCorruption: Noise.

to:

* TheCorruption: Noise.Noise, which Legendary Master Shin describes as an unfortunate by-product of the age's powerful HardLight technology. That said, Noise doesn't actually carry a moral component or implications -- it simply induces WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity, and can be controlled with the right technology or power.

Geo forces Omega-Xis to participate in a dog show in order for him to compensate for the damages.



** Again, this registration occurs the first time the Hunter-VG is used. Until the registration is completed, while it is a very brief process, the character is barred from Wave Change. Remarkably, nobody ever seems to have a problem with this. The last installment is either sitting pretty on the [[SlidingScaleofIdealismVersusCynicism Ideal Side]] or sitting pretty on a [[GovernmentConspiracy Sequel Hook]].
** Leaning in the direction of SequelHook (though the emotional closure from ''Star Force 3'' and the lack of sales make it [[FranchiseKiller highly unlikely]]) is the fact that [[AllThereInTheManual the Satellite Server Website]] and Tom Dubius himself ranking in at [=Transcode-020=] suggest that there are a small host of registered Wave Change capable characters out there.[[labelnote:List]] - Spoilers:Known registries include Transcode-001 Acid Ace, Transcode-002 Rogue, Transcode-003 Mega Man, Transcode-004 Harp Note, Transcode-005 Taurus Fire, Transcode-011 Wolf Woods, and Transcode-020 Cygnus Wing. That's 7, not counting Cancer Bubble, Libra Scales, Queen Ophiuca, Gemini Thunder, Crown Thunder, Phantom Black, Yeti Blizzard, Plesio Surf, Kung-Foo Kid, Terra Condor, Queen Virgo, and Jack Corvus. While that boosts the list up to its 19, it is highly unlikely that Queen Virgo and Jack Corvus are registered, since they neglect to call upon Transcodes; so there are at least three open holes in that list, and probably more, considering that most of these characters may not return - Ophiuchus was deliberately elided in favor of Vogue, for example. Not counting [[spoiler: [[AllThereInTheManual Transcode-000 Dread Joker.]][[/labelnote]]

* {{Masquerade}}: Geo and Sonia do their best to hide Omega and Lyra from the public eye. This is made somewhat difficult by the aliens, who don't seem to care about exposing themselves to the world. By the third game this has been made far easier, as instead of hiding them away entirely they can get away with simply passing them off as normal Wizards.

*** It might be because the other characters' fusions are done directly through the human's body, whereas Mega works through Geo's terminal, and Lyra through Sonia's guitar--and even then they have slight hair color changes (Geo's becomes a dark shade of purple, Sonia's lightens to a full blonde). Another difference is that [[spoiler: unlike the other wave changers, Geo is fusing with an AM-IAN]].

In Operation Shooting Star his helmet is shown to obscure most of his face with a OneWayVisor from [=MegaMan.EXE's perspective=], further subverting this trope.

%%Where should the Omega-Xis lawnmower bit go? Certainly not under The Dragon!
%%** Omega-Xis does something similar: Namely hijacking Geo's family's lawnmower and going on a joyride on it. Let's just say that after wrecking a particularly treasured item of Geo's during the joyride, Geo forces Omega-Xis to participate in a dog show in order for him to compensate for the damages.

* FlunkyBoss: Queen Ophiuca and [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Wolf Woods]] will summon snake and wolf viri to attack you. Hollow will actually summon viruses, and Ra Mu will summon Murian soldiers to take swipes at you.

%%* LeadPoliceDetective: Bob Copper (Heiji Goyouda), who generally finds himself involved in cases that deal with superhuman activities. %%He doesn't succeed, but he gets pretty darn close. Yes, yes [[{{Expy}} he does remind you]] of [[Franchise/LupinIII Zenigata]].
** SecretChaser: Geo and Mega work hard to keep ahead of Copper. They manage to turn him into a SympatheticInspectorAntagonist when they try to slow his investigation, an effort which involves knocking him out with a [[ImprovisedWeapon baseball]] [[PlayedForLaughs to the forehead]], and cracking his computer to delete his entire report. Mega, who dragged Geo into it, apparently [[IdiotBall never hit on the idea]] that explaining the situation to a potential ally was an all around better option than behaving like a criminal and ratcheting up the policeman's suspicion.
** OvershadowedByAwesome: Copper is actually quite competent, he's just utterly out of his league. Even in the anime, which gives him more screen time, Mega Man evades his clutches only through the virtue of his superhuman abilities. Again, Geo and Mega probably aren't helping things with their [[IdiotBall unquestioning distrust]] of the badge.
** OccultDetective: Well, extraterrestrial detective, maybe.
** DrivesLikeCrazy: In the anime Copper has some truly insane driving skills, being able balance his car at a forty-five degree angle on a railguard and still be able to drive forward. Omega-Xis was most impressed.
** BrokenMasquerade: Copper comes very, ''very'' close to connecting Geo to the weird activities going on in town in the first game (not least because Geo's house is [[AppliedPhlebotinum radioactive]]).
** ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Copper generally remains one throughout the series; he would be more of one if Geo and Mega didn't keep making him suspicious.
