* SpiritualAntithesis: To ''MegaManClassic''. The classic is a quirky series about a boy android who shoots up cartoony, googly-eyed robots and copies their powers with obvious Cartoon Physics. His creator, Dr. Light, and his nemesis, Dr. Wily, are also pretty comical in their own ways. Each game ends with the eponymous character saving the day once again. ''MMZ'' is much more anime-like, is about a teenage-looking android fighting a war alongside a group of freedom fighters, and has very little to speak of in the way of humor. Victories always come at a cost. The DarkerAndEdgier progression of the timeline has been so much that this series becomes a 180 degrees opposite of what started this whole timeline.

* AllThereInTheStinger: ''2'''s stinger features a disembodied voice telling his "creation", Omega, that it's the "right time to attack". This leads directly into the events of ''VideoGame/MegaManZero3'', in which Omega appears in the intro level, and we're introduced to the likely source of the voice: the BigBad Dr. Weil.

* UnusualEars: All of the Reploids in ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' & cyborgs in ''MegaManZX'' seem to have these strange white headphone-like things instead of human ears, which is strange, considering that the first ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' had proper ears, despite being much less advanced.

** Basically a running theme of the series is "[[WellIntentionedExtremist the road to hell]] [[TotalitarianUtilitarian is paved with good intentions]]."

** Though in several cases (the Pantheon, Elpizo, Omega [[spoiler: before crossing the BishounenLine]]) this is explicitly a power-up granted by the [[ArtifactOfDoom Dark Elf]], not something they can innately do.

* RisingWaterRisingTension: Volteel Biblio's level is set in a sunken library where the water goes up and down at intervals. The danger isn't the water itself (Zero is fine underwater) but when the water touches the exposed wiring that hangs off the ceiling, shocking the water; Zero can get harmed if he doesn't go out of the water quickly.

** Downplayed with the previous ruler of Neo Arcadia, Copy X. He does try to make the empire close to an utopia... but he's so oppressive to Reploids in that he considers retiring minor, innocent Reploids is a good solution for the energy crisis. Then Zero slays him in the first game. In the second game, his second in command Harpuia assumes the role in secret, where the empire becomes less oppressive under him. In the third game this is fully played straight - Copy X is revived by Dr. Weil and becomes worse; he now considers human society a fair game, as seen when he demolished an entire city block with a missile just to get the Dark Elf. Zero slays him again, only for Weil to take his place.

* {{Tyrannicide}}: In the climax of the ''4'', [[spoiler:Craft [[TheStarscream rebels against]] the current ruler of [[TheEmpire Neo Arcadia]], [[TheCaligula Dr. Weil]], and hijacks the control system of [[KillSat Ragnarok]] in order to kill him. In a subversion, not only the Neo Arcadia gets utterly destroyed in the process, Weil survived the attack thanks to his regenerative armor. In the end Weil does get killed by Zero but by then the country is already no more]].
