* AnimeHair: Subverted with Uncle Proton-- his hair is short and gray and dull. Played straight with Quickman and Zero, though.
line(s) 23 (click to see context)
* CoolShades: Megaman dons a pair while deriding his "haters."
line(s) 31 (click to see context)
* WordOfGay: Supplemental material reveals that although Zero isn't gay, his boyfriend Crashman is.
line(s) 39 (click to see context)
* CompressedHair: Zero's hair. [[http://megamanspritecomic.tumblr.com/post/23924167069/will-zero-ever-take-off-his-helmet-and-show-his-manly It never really ends.]]

* CousinOliver: [[http://megamanspritecomic.tumblr.com/post/53227895592/even-when-you-are-abandoned-there-are-people-who Devvin,]] although Uncle Proton accurately describes him as a disgrace to his entire family.

* BadEnding: [[spoiler: You get arrested for jaywalking and spend the rest of your life in prison, contemplating your poor life choices. No, seriously.]] * BedsheetGhost: Most of the ghosts you encounter are like this. * BonusBoss: Yellow Devil. * BorrowedCatchphrase: Megaman asks Zero "are you in or are you skin" before realizing that he's quoting Quickman and berates himself for reminding himself of that prick. * BrickJoke: [[spoiler: Please do not step on the grass.]] * BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: All the enemies in the final area have a W emblazoned on their person. [[spoiler: It stands for Wacky, not Wily, though.]] ** The "three man" enemy is literally a giant number three. * CantYouReadTheSign: Early in the game, there's a sign a couple steps off the path in the middle of a patch of grass. If you go up to read it, it tells you not to step off the grass. ** [[spoiler: Halfway through the game, you're stopped by a cop who says that you've been reported to the authorities for stepping off the path. If you stepped off the path at any point prior to this during the game, Snakeman will give the cop photographic evidence of you walking off the path. Megaman and Zero spend the rest of their lives in prison.]] * DeadGuyJunior: [[spoiler: The default name for the new dogmobile that hatches from the egg is "Dogmobile II."]] * ExtremeOmnivore: Uncle Proton. [[spoiler: He '''eats''' his way out of his cage!]] * FantasticRacism -->'''Big Ghost:''' "not all ghosts haunt people you racist" * GiantMook: The big phantom. * GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: [[spoiler: Iris.]]

* HijackedByGanon: Given the source material...
* GrimyWater: Swimming in the purple waters of the Ghost World doesn't have any effect on the player characters themselves, but Dr. Dad looks sick while you're swimming in it. * HelloInsertNameHere: You get to name [[spoiler: the new dogmobile.]] * HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Dogmobile]] * KingMook: The ghost king, natch. * HijackedByGanon: Given the source material, you should have expected there as someone behind the ghost uprising. ** [[spoiler: It's not Wily.]] * MacGuffinGuardian: Pharoahman is an interesting example. In addition to stealing Uncle Proton's meds, he simultaneously guards the second magic b-ball. * MacGuffinMelee: Quickman and Megaman duel over the final magic b-ball, all-or-nothing. * MadeOfExplodium: The caecilians often blow up. * MetalSlime: Sugarman takes this to the logical extreme-- killing him gives you more EXP than any other enemy in the game, but his HP and defense are huge and he runs away soon after the battle starts. * NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: Zero invokes this after Megaman calls [[spoiler: the recently deceased Quickman]] a prick. * OneSceneWonder: Invoked in-universe. When [[spoiler: Roll says she's leaving Megaman for Air, Bright and Flashman, Megaman complains that they haven't been in more than two comics,]] and they didn't even leave a lasting impression like Pharaohman did. * PlotCoupon: The three magic b-balls, which you need to collect to wish away the ghosts. * RantInducingSlight: Megaman tells a big ghost that he thought he was being haunted. The big ghost explodes in anger at the suggestion that all ghosts are evil poltergeist. [[spoiler: This is what makes the big ghost turn their world into the ghost world.]] * RockMonster: Subverted by the boulder blocking your path in the beginning-- it apologizes for being a nuisance before getting out of your way. * ShoutOut: The desert pumpkin enemy will occasionally yell, "I don't want that!" This references the infamous game Pumkin World. ** WordOfGod says that [[spoiler: the game's BadEnding]] was intended as a reference to VideoGame/CaveStory's [[spoiler: infamously difficult-to-reach good ending.]] ** The game's [[spoiler: fakeout]] ending [[spoiler: references [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Mega Man Legends 2's]] ending, in which Megaman is stuck on the Moon with no way of getting back to Earth.]] *** Megaman's cry of [[spoiler: "get me off the moon" refers to the fans trying to get a third Mega Man Legends game rallying under the same banner.]] ** [[Series/BreakingBad Walt and Jesse]] make a cameo in the desert area. ** One of the enemies is an evil Pudsey doll. ** Skullman's appearance and "haunting melody" attack refer to the Skull Trumpet meme. ** The way in which [[spoiler: the Dogmobile egg hatches]] is about as direct a Franchise/Pokemon reference as you can get. * ShowsDamage: When the player characters get low on health, they start breaking down. Their dead sprites show them in a dismantled heap on the floor. * StableTimeLoop: [[spoiler: After Dogmobile's death, Megaman orders a new one from a ghost from the past, who asks him if he can sign on ghost paper. Megaman lies and says yes so that he can get off the phone faster. The ghost hangs up right before Megaman and Zero realize that the ghost who knocked on their door at the beginning of the game came because they ordered a dogmobile egg in the future. Past Megaman destroyed the ghost, setting the events of the game into action.]] * SuperNotDrowningSkills: Uncle Proton has this in the underwater section. * ToBeContinuedRightNow: Find out in Megaman Sprite Game Part 2! Which is right now, thanks for your patience. * UnwinnableByDesign: PlayedForLaughs. The game's bad ending is pretty much impossible to avoid on your first playthrough. [[spoiler: See CantYouReadTheSign.]] * TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon: You can't leave the final dungeon after you enter it. ** [[spoiler: Subverted-- it's a SuckECheeses.]] * WhaleEgg: Dogmobiles hatch from eggs. * WhatTheHellHero: Zero berates Megaman after he [[spoiler: uses the magic b-balls to teleport him and Zero onto the moon instead of resolving the plot.]]
