** Dr.Weil, even from the start, had pretty warped ideas of right and wrong, blaming the entire Reploid race for the crimes of the Mavericks. It's entirely possible all the suffering and destruction around him at the time(Maverick Wars, the fall of Doppler Town, the Sky Lagoon Disaster, Repliforce's rebellion, a colony drop, ''and'' a large-scale rebellion by the new generation reploids, all in his lifetime) left him severely unhinged

** Dr. Weil. Him being evil is completely undeniable. At first, his actions in the Elf Wars seem purely because [[FantasticRacism he thinks people are superior to Reploids.]] But consider all the attacks by Mavericks, the moral ambiguity of the Maverick Hunters (who only exist because humans are essentially defenseless against said Mavericks), the collateral damage... Oh, and also a crazy Maverick tries to destroy everyone via ColonyDrop. And this all happens in around a decade. When you think about it, Dr. Weil [[StrawmanHasAPoint has a pretty good reason to hate Reploidkind.]]

** ''That being said,'' Sigma (and by proxy, Weil) was only ''partially'' right - there's obviously ''some'' humans who think like that, but in this series, considering all of Neo Arcadia's propaganda, who would blame them? To say that all HumansAreBastards in this instance would be to use the same fallacy that Yggdrasil used in Anime/DigimonSavers (using evidence of the actions of one CompleteMonster[[note]]who, amusingly enough, was a ''lot'' like Weil[[/note]] to tar humanity with the same brush). Plus, part of Dr. Weil's motivation (according to the supplemental material and before he jumped off the slippery slope) was that he was getting back at the Reploids for their constant violent uprisings, [[SelfFulfillingProphecy which were heavily precipitated by the Sigma Virus.]] Of course, that reasoning shows that he had a warped mindset from the start, believing the entire Reploid race should be held responsible for what insane terrorists and criminals members of their race have chosen to do, making him pretty much the same as Sigma, but on the opposite side of the fence.

* {{Woolseyism}}: Some of the boss' names are changed overseas. In particular, Dr. Weil's name was originally Dr. Vile. There's already [[VideoGame/MegaManX another guy who's named Vile]] (who is originally called [[Franchise/StarWars V]][[ShoutOut A]][[WritingAroundTrademarks VA]]), so the name change is to avoid confusion. If pronounced in German, it can still be read as "vile".

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The entire series qualifies, for the reasons listed on the [[NightmareFuel/MegaMan Nightmare Fuel page for the entire franchise]].
* TheWoobie: Ciel gets extra points for this. [[Woobie/VideoGames Hoo-boy...]]

franchise]]. There's also the fact that the Neo Arcadian government basically does a systematical genocide on Reploids to solve energy crisis. And the game is rated E.
* TheWoobie: Ciel gets extra points for this. [[Woobie/VideoGames Hoo-boy...In two separate occasions, she thought that she was doing the right thing, but it only ended up giving rise to worse problems. The first one would be for creating Copy-X, and we all know how that turned out. The Resistance is partly her effort to make amends for what she's done. The second time was successfully researching an energy source that she believes would put an end to the war, only for it to be a catalyst to a new conflict. Mind you, this is a person who longs for peace as much as X, and she is very young at the series' start, and also human. And, then there's the fact that, at series' end, [[spoiler:she is waiting faithfully for Zero to come back, when it was completely impossible.]]

* ThatOneAchievement: Getting the 2 minigames in the third game requires you to beat the game with perfect 100 points in your average score. This means completing ''every'' mission perfectly - complete every subobjective, beat levels quickly, kill a minimum amount of enemies and take no more than a small amount of damage. Oh, and not using your elves (at least not the Fusion ones) or entering Cyberspace.

** CasshernSins is often called "the Mega Man Zero anime".
** MetalGearRisingRevengeance can be deemed as a 3D Mega Man Zero game because of their many similarities.

* GoddamnedBoss: Volteel Biblio of the third game; a large portion of his fight is akin to a whack-a-mole, except that the holes are spread far apart. His head will appear in one hole while his tail will appear in another, shooting a slow homing ball of electricity.
** Pegasolta Eclair of the fourth game has a clever but annoying tendency to fly up to avoid your attack. He can only be attacked if he's attacking, which you'll have a hard time with since spends most of his time far from the ground.
** Mino Magnus of the same game, while not that hard, it positively annoying: He's weak to ice attacks, but his hitbox is often obscured by his invulnerable shoulders. His magnetizing GrappleMove will cripple you and make you more vulnerable to his magnetic attacks, and his DetachmentCombat attack needs quite the timing and fingerwork to avoid.



** Heat Genblem from the fourth game. One of his strategies is to walk slowly towards you, then quickly defends with his shell if you attack. Keep attacking and he'll counter with an ElementalPunch. Another of his hard strategy has him floating next to one of the walls, then firing a continuous laser beam while spinning; you have to follow through or you'll get hit. He's rarely open to attacks, and when he is, you'll have a hard time dodging him to actually attack.
