''Rockman DASH'' in Japan, is a 1997 Playstation game that was Creator/{{Capcom}}'s first attempt to take the ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' franchise into 3D. The storyline revolves around "Mega Man Volnutt" and his friends/surrogate family Roll and Barrel Caskett -- a team of "Diggers" exploring the ruins left by the {{Precursors}} searching for energy-generating refractors that are more precious than gold in their ScavengerWorld. Opposing them are the Bonne Family, a trio of IneffectualSympatheticVillain Pirates. Other foes include Glyde, a pirate who hates Teisel Bonne's guts, Bola and Claymore, two former pirates/bounty hunters who [[BadassGrandpa kick some serious ass, despite being very old]], and others.

* BreakoutCharacter: Tron, who went from being one of the antagonists to having her own spinoff game and being featured in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'', ''[[VideoGame/MarvelvsCapcom3 3: Fate of Two Worlds]]'', ''NamcoXCapcom'', and ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone''. She's made more appearances than ''Trigger'' has.

* On September 29, 2010, Capcom Europe [[http://www.themmnetwork.com/2010/09/29/mega-man-legends-3-announced-for-nintendo-3ds/ confirmed]] ''Legends 3'' as a UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS title almost 10 years after the release of ''Legends 2''... Unfortunately, on July 18, 2011, Capcom announced that, due to the vague reason of not meeting required criteria, the project had been [[http://www.capcom-unity.com/devroom/blog/2011/07/18/a_message_from_capcom cancelled,]] with the SuspiciouslySpecificDenial that it had nothing to do with sacking KeijiInafune. Worse still, Inafune even [[http://t.co/FTqmlOBW offered to help finish the game, only for Capcom to refuse.]] [[InternetBackdraft The fans were not pleased]], and with other ''Mega Man'' projects being sacked and no new games on the horizon (aside from appearances in crossover fighters and an [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan2018 animated series premiering on Cartoon Network in 2018]]), the series may have been unceremoniously killed.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: [[spoiler:While the Master's intentions for destroying the Master System are good (he wants to prevent the Carbons, whom he's grown to love, from being exterminated), he conveniently forgot that, in addition to preserving the lives of Elysium's inhabitants and providing a failsafe in case of humanity's extinction, it also acted as a seal to keep the Elder System, whatever the hell the inhabitants of Elysium left behind on Terra, shut down. It's heavily implied that whatever fresh hell the Elder System would unleash upon Terra is several orders of magnitude worse than anything the Master System could have caused.]]

* ICannotSelfTerminate: [[spoiler:System Units are unable to act against the Master System's parameters, hence why Sera is so focused on executing the Carbon Reinitialization Program (the System won't allow her to do otherwise). It's implied that the Master was slowly able to break Trigger away from the System, hence why he was able to stop Sera from carrying out the System's orders. As for Yuna, she broke from the System when she transferred her mind to Matilda's, so while she no longer has any control over the System, she's also no longer bound by its limitations (hence why she's able to aid Trigger in destroying the System).]]

** [[spoiler:Turns out ''everyone'' in the Legends series (except for Megs himself, a RidiculouslyHumanRobot) is a "Carbon." Mega Man and Data were charged with safeguarding the Master of the Ancients' DNA, presumably the last remaining sample of completely human genetic code.]]

* AmbiguousRobots: Pretty much everyone. Cybernetics are so widespread in this world that it's impossible to tell for sure who is a robot and who is a human. [[spoiler:Mega Man and the other System Units are confirmed as {{Ridiculously Human Robot}}s, and the "Carbons" are all humans]], but on an individual basis it's possible some of the "people" you meet are robots with biological components.

* KillAllHumans: Weirdly zig-zagged: [[spoiler: the Carbon Reinitialization Program hosted on Elysium was designed to clone ''new'' humans from preserved human DNA and repopulate the earth with them upon the Master's death (i.e. humanity's official extinction).

* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Taken to a new extreme: [[spoiler:Ridiculously Human Robot Humans. Or something. The original Japanese is a bit clearer on this, but every "human" character is a Carbon - a [[MechanicalEvolution descendant of artificially created humans]] meant to populate Terra as long as the Master was around, while the System Units are mostly robotic, but with some biological components (such as being able to age). Only the Master is truly human... except by the time the ''Legends'' series takes place, he's been long dead, and the Master System is trying to bulldoze the Carbons and clone humanity back into existence.]] See Tomato In The Dyson Sphere below for the short version.
