* CheckpointStarvation: One of the most frequently stated complaints about the game, though in most cases it's not the lack of checkpoints so much as ''where they are''. For example, the checkpoints in Yo-yo Man and Trinitro Man's stages are set at about 1/3 of the way through the stage, while the checkpoint in Glue Man's stage is considerably further than halfway through the stage.

LetsPlay/RoahmMythril, in his blind run, also pointed to the checkpoint in Rainbow Man's stage, which was ''before'' the midboss rather than after, and also to the fact that the secondary checkpoints in the fortress stages didn't activate until you met the stage boss, even though he had reached the checkpoints in earlier unsuccessful runs.


Added DiffLines:

** Earlier editions of the game had a bug where Jet Man would randomly freeze in place, allowing players to simply buster him to death. Unfortunately, depending on when the bug happened, it could become a GameBreakingBug; this happened during LetsPlay/RoahmMythril's blind run, where Jet Man froze in place during his entry sequence, essentially freezing the game, and forcing Roahm to start the level over and play through it again.

* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: What some fans feel about Unlimited, and other [[VideoGame/MegamanRevolution Mega Man fan games]]. They claim that it is too cheap and the stages are too long for it to be a true Mega Man game.

* PanderingToTheBase: The development of the game itself is a form of this, due to the fans begging Mega Phil X to make a full project out of his fan-made trailer. Although, Phil is a dedicated Classic Mega Man fan, so it evens out somewhat.

** A number of players also dislike the art style (see TheyJustDidntCare) and certain songs, while the rest find them good.

* TheyJustDidntCare:
** Phil publically ignored [[BigNameFan Zan Sidera]]'s advice on graphic limitations. As a result, the game has more colours than it really should for an "NES" feel.
*** To elaborate, the NES is a 8bit console, but it utilises 2bit for its 8 color palettes (4 palettes for sprites and 4 palettes for background objects). To demonstrate 2bit goes this way: 00 01 10 and 11 (3+1 colors). 00 is the transparency (+1), which color is always the same for all the other of the 8 palettes the NES uses. 01 10 11 are the three slots (3), which can be used for any colour of the NES palette. The maximum you can have on the screen for a NES game are 24+8 colors, but since the transparency is for all the other palettes the same, you have 25 colors.
*** The game also features sprites that would be too big for the NES to render, and would have to use the single background layer, which means the background would have to be solid black. The Forkift minibosses from Jet Man's stage and the Platypressor minibosses from Glue Man's stage come to mind, and the [[ShockAndAwe Elecrab]] [[GiantEnemyCrab boss]] of the first fortress stage is an even worse offender.
** However, this is subverted with technical issues. The most recent patch (1.1.0) fixed most of them.
** The issues with the game's difficulty is subverted as well, as [=MegaPhilX=] has been listening to feedback and made several balance changes to the game as of 1.1.0. The biggest change is in regards to the checkpoints in the fortress stages. When you die at one of the fortress bosses, you will restart at that boss, rather than 2/3 of the way through the stage as you do in the current version. An Easy Mode is also added.
*** [[DoubleSubversion Unfortunately]], said Easy Mode turned out to show some questionable changes.

** In [[spoiler:Zero]] mode, you play as a rogue prototype robot who constantly lose health, and the way to stay alive is to kill enemies. In ''VideoGame/MightyNo9'', Ray's gimmick is exactly that. It also helps that she's an {{Expy}} of said spoiled character.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Almost all the music, but especially Tank Man and Wily's Castle 2 & 3.



** The ending[[spoiler:'s take on the events that bridge the Classic and X timelines.]] Some think it's really awesome and love the connection, others don't mind it, some feel it could be handled better and there are those who consider it an untouchable plot point and felt offended by the game's pretentiousness. Others still feel that having the game end with [[spoiler: an [[HopelessBossFight unwinnable boss fight]]]] ends the game on a sour note.

* GaryStu: Yoku Man is arguably this, as he seems to have a LOT of [[CreatorsPet preferential treatment planned for him]], by his designer Starsimsuniverse. To wit:
** A [[TakeOurWordForIt supposedly]] [[AllThereInTheManual extensive backstory]] that wouldn't even fit on his data card (such as the fact that he comes from part unknowns).
** His power is based on an infamous [[TemporaryPlatform series staple]], making him skirt the line of [[VillainSue Villain Sue]].
** In his data card, his bad point is described, "-----".
** The privilege to be a hidden robot master in the main game, rather than being an unlockable bonus outside of it (like, say, the Rockman Killers in ''10'').
** Starsimsuniverse expressed the desire to have him become a public domain character, so that ''[[WolverinePublicity everyone could use him in their fan games]]''.
** [[spoiler: You have to fight him in the BossRush, whether or not you wanted to clear his stage first.]]
** Unlike all the other Robot Masters, he lacks a serial number, implying that he is "special".
** Ironically, we know next to nothing about him because all we get is "???" regarding his background. He's so much of an enigma that the idea of being portrayed as a Gary Stu doesn't hold up unless you know about Yoku Man's conceptualization.



** The [[GiantEnemyCrab crab boss]] at the end of the first fortress level is also aggravating. You fight it on a set of three ladders over a BottomlessPit, where getting hit by anything is almost guaranteed to be fatal thanks to the KnockBack. Coming in with a stock of Beat Whistles is highly recommended.

*** Its other attack is annoying as well, since one hit from it will also ensure your death.

* GameBreaker: ''Holy Hell'', [[spoiler: Prototype Zero]]. You have to have already beaten the game already on original or instant death, so it can't be used to cheese the game as soon as you start, but once you unlock him, he ''bends Unlimited's legendary difficulty over and smacks it acrossed the rear.'' Granted, he starts out weak, [[MagikarpPower and grows more powerful the more bosses you beat]], but even if you only beat a third of them, he completely punches a hole through a good portion of the games difficulty.

Honestly, if you're still steaming after finally beating the game as Mega Man, [[CatharsisFactor obliterating the game as him really alleviates some stress]].

* MemeticMutation: "So, like a normal Mega Man Unlimited level." [[labelnote:Explanation]]It's become a meme from both detractors and people who like the game to say this in response to {{Marathon Level}}s in other games, either by describing the level in detail or using it in response to someone talking about a MarathonLevel in another game, the joke being that ''all'' the levels in ''Mega Man Unlimited'' are {{Marathon Level}}s in and of themselves.[[/labelnote]]
