** If a reploid holding a part (say, the Jumper, practically essential for reaching higher-up areas) is killed, they're LostForever. This makes getting certain items, such as a Sub-Tank, literally impossible without restarting the game from scratch.

* LostForever: In ''X6'', there are Reploids scattered throughout the levels waiting around to be rescued. God help you if a nightmare virus infects one of them, because they will be lost forever, taking the items they give with them.

Until 2016, [[BreakoutCharacter Zero]] was the only character from the ''X'' series who appeared as a playable character in the fighting installments of Capcom's ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever Vs.]]'' series, serving as the sole ''X'' series representative in both ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom: [[UpdatedRerelease Ultimate All-Stars]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Marvel vs. Capcom 3]]''. (His ''Zero'' incarnation also appears in ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos'' as a [[MiniBoss Mid-Boss]].) This would change with the announcement of ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'', where X was unveiled as a playable character for the first time in ''Vs.'' series history. Additionally, both X and Zero appear in the crossover ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' and its sequel, and Sigma's ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' incarnation appears as a hidden character in ''Super Ultra VideoGame/DeadRising3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha''.

Cain's work backfires again when most of the Maverick Hunter group, including Sigma, turn into Mavericks themselves. Why the others turned, we have no idea, but Sigma turned soon after getting into a fight with "[[TheLancer Zero]]", a mysterious and insane robot of similar capability to X but of unknown manufacture. Sigma's defection heralds the beginning of a massive war between Mavericks and humanity -- and since he feels responsible for the Maverick outbreak, X decides to team up with Zero ([[TapOnTheHead repaired after Sigma knocked out him out with a decisive blow to the forehead]], which [[IdentityAmnesia makes him useful to the Maverick Hunters]]) and put a stop to the war.

In terms of gameplay, the series has the same basic formula as the Classic series: you choose levels in no particular order and gain weapons from defeated bosses; you use the weapons in an ElementalRockPaperScissors system against the other bosses; lather, rinse, repeat. The ''X'' games have a much more aggressive playstyle than the Classic series due to the existence of VideoGameDashing and {{Wall Jump}}ing. The games' maps have a much bigger and more open design than the Classic series' maps to accomodate the new playstyle.

Until 2016, [[BreakoutCharacter Zero]] was the only character from the ''X'' series who appeared as a playable character in the fighting installments of Capcom's ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever Vs.]]'' series, serving as the sole ''X'' series representative in both ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom: [[UpdatedRerelease Ultimate All-Stars]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Marvel vs. Capcom 3]]'' (his ''Zero'' incarnation also appears in ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos'' as a [[MiniBoss Mid-Boss]]). This would change with the announcement of ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite]]'', where X was unveiled as a playable character for the first time in ''Vs.'' series history. Additionally, both X and Zero appear in the crossover ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' and its sequel, and Sigma's ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' incarnation appears as a hidden character in ''Super Ultra DeadRising3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha''.
