* LighterAndSofter: ''Mega Man X1'' definitely has it's serious moments, but compared to most of it's successors (besides [[VideoGame/MegaManX2 it's sequel]]), it's one of the more upbeat games in the series. Take for instance, the Mega Man Classic-esque and cheerful [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rqK5uWs9gk Password Theme]] with cute Metools on the screen, the overall upbeat soundtrack, the Mavericks are much more cartoony, having humorous animations and reactions to their weaknesses, the storyline and plot is much simpler, with Sigma being essentially a bald reploid version of Dr. Wily.

* NintendoHard: The game isn't as tough as the classic Mega Man games, but it can still offer a serious challenge, especially if you try to get through the game without getting (or in the case of the unskippable Dash upgrade, using) any ofthe Armor Upgrades.

* TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening: After Zero [[spoiler: sacrifices himself]], X suddenly breaks free of his electric bonds and fully restores him energy before the showdown with Vile. Even Vile has no idea how this is possible. This hidden power isn't mentioned again, and was removed in ''Maverick Hunter X''.

* RescueReversal: In the third Sigma Fortress stage, in the end, Zero (who infiltrated earlier) had been captured by Vile. X has to fight Vile to go pass him, but he can't hurt Vile while he's in his [[MiniMecha Ride Armor]], and after a short while Vile grabs X with his Ride Armor's arm. Zero, seeing X in danger, breaks free of his restrains and then destroys Vile's mech in a DesperationAttack, giving X a fighting chance.

* ButThouMust: There's no way to avoid encountering Dr. Light's capsule in Chill Penguin's level or to refuse [[spoiler: Zero's Arm Part]].
** Probably because the game is exorbitantly harder without it. A SelfImposedChallenge is to start the game using a passwords that has Chill Penguin defeated, but without upgrades.

Part]]. The latter is due to difficulty restrictions; the FinalBoss is immune to Level 2 charge shots, so if a player without the Buster upgrade were to run out of special weapon energy, they'd have no way to damage the boss. The former is probably because the game is exorbitantly harder ''much'' more difficult without it. A SelfImposedChallenge is to start the game Dash upgrade, and some self-imposed challenges include using a passwords that has to skip Chill Penguin defeated, but Penguin's stage without upgrades.getting the part.

* InstructiveLevelDesign: The game's level design is such that it teaches you different techniques by throwing you into situations that require them. By the end of the first level, the player will have had to use all of X's platforming abilities at least once. The only exception is charging the X-buster, but Zero does that during his BigDamnHeroes moment to encourage you to try and follow his example.
