** Despite Wily and his robots being somewhat GenreSavvy, they missed several opportunities to outright kill Mega Man. In ''Campus Commandos'' the Robot Masters had Mega Man at their mercy, twice. The first time they locked him in a closet and the second time they tied him to gears in a clock and left him alone. In ''Brain Bot'' they handcuffed Mega Man to the floor and was going to crush him, but they again left him alone instead of staying to make sure he died. In ''Showdown at Red Gulch'' they had Mega Man completely at their mercy after they knocked him out, but instead of finishing him they tied him to a horse and sent him off into the desert.

* EvilGloating: Despite being somewhat GenreSavvy, Wily cannot stop himself from gloating when he thinks he's ahead.

* GenreBlind: Most robot masters don't realize that they can still fight after having their main weapon stolen. Famously averted with [[GenreSavvy Pharaoh Man]] though.

** A couple of Wily's death traps were fairly genre-savvy; the robots have attempted to kill Mega while he's weakened or unconscious, and in "Brain Bots" Mega Man was handcuffed to the floor as a spiked ceiling descended on him.

* NothingCanStopUsNow: Wily has a really bad habit of saying this, to which Proto Man [[GenreSavvy has to remind him that Mega Man is still around]].

* ResetButton: In "Future Shock", the reason the future turned out badly is because Mega Man wasn't around to stop Dr. Wily in the past. Both he and Wily are [[GenreSavvy aware]] that if he makes it to the time machine, Wily's conquest of the future will end. Sure enough, Mega Man makes it and the BadFuture is erased.

* AdaptedOut: Some Robot Masters never made an appearance in the cartoon. In fact, ''VideoGame/MegaMan1'' and ''VideoGameMegaMan3'' are the only two games to have every Robot Master from it make at least one appearance on the cartoon.

* SecondLawMyAss: How ThreeLawsCompliant the robots are is questionable, but Proto Man have absolutely no problem disobeying the Second Law given how many times he disobey Wily or even undermined his orders, something no other robot built by Wily can do.

* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Just about every robot on the show. They have human personalties and feelings to the point that they might as well be humans. What separates the humans from robots is free will. The Robot Masters can't disobey Wily no matter how crazy his schemes become, except for Proto Man who plans are used to build Mega Man who have a degree of free will. How much control Dr. Light has over his robots is never explored since he treats them like his children and doesn't give them orders.
* RidingIntoTheSunset: How the final episode of the series end after it was cancelled.

The overall plot of the cartoon is pretty much like the video games it was based on, with Mega Man having to foil the schemes of MadScientist Dr. Wily, who wants nothing more than to TakeOverTheWorld. It is somewhat like the [[WesternAnimation American]] ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' [[WesternAnimation/StreetFighter cartoon]] in that the plots of the individual episodes would tend to get kinda screwy, but was nonetheless good for a usually unintentional laugh. The voice work was provided by Creator/TheOceanGroup who would later dub ''VideoGame/MegaManPoweredUp''.

* {{Badass}}: Pharaoh Man had a great design compared to many robot masters in the series, was competent, had a [[BadassBaritone deep voice]], no puns and punched Megaman in the face after having his weapon stolen.

* ShockAndAwe: Elec Man and Shock Man powers. They both can shoot lightning.

* ColonyDrop: One of Wily's ingenious schemes involved using a contraption to pull the moon out of orbit and bring the Moon close enough to the Earth that the resulting gravitational shift would send the Earth's climate into chaos. The human race would still be wiped out, save for maybe a few survivors -- who, Wily hoped, would submit to his power after that. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even his Robot Masters thinks this plan is crazy]].
