* CrackIsCheaper: The first game goes for a reasonable price, but the other two go for around $100.00 AT LEAST.

** The Nino Ruins in ''2'', which isn't suprising considering it's a DownTheDrain area and has all of its trappings: most of it has you moving veeeeery sloooooowly through water (which also messes with your jumping physics, making it harder to dodge enemies), is labyrinthine and very, ''very'' [[MarathonLevel long]], and it's packed to the brim with some of the more [[SmashMook tedious]] and/or [[GoddamnedBats annoying]] Reaverbots in the game. At least it's got some [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ex61b-Tujc good music]] for you to listen to. By extension the Kimotama Caverns fall into this category as well, just without the cool music (you instead get the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrAFM1tLkzs Clozer Woods ruin music]] from the first game, which is more NightmareFuel / HellIsThatNoise than anything).

*** Finally, ''Mega Man Legends 3'' was cancelled around the time another game called ''Mega Man Universe'' was cancelled; which was a de facto revival of a series just starting to go dormant, and was literally billed by Capcom as a celebration of the ''Mega Man'' franchise as a whole, making both cancellations feel like kicks to the teeth for the fandom. Now it felt like Capcom was intentionally trying to kill the franchise; indeed, since the cancellation of ''Legends 3'', the only ''Mega Man''-related media released has been ''Mega Man'''s appearance in the latest ''Super Smash Bros.'' game and the ongoing Archie Comics series. Even worse as Inafune's attempted SpiritualSuccessor to Mega Man, ''VideoGame/MightyNo9''; [[HopeSpot utterly crashed and burned on release]] in 2016! Thankfully, things started to turn around when the first six games of the classic series were re-released that same year on [=PS4=], Xbox One, the Wii U and [=3DS=], and Steam; with new HD 8-bit graphics, a challenge mode, and a museum featuring an exhaustive collection of sketches. Months prior, a new animated television series by Man of Action (the creator of ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' and ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'') was announced, with a projected premiere date of 2017 on Creator/CartoonNetwork.

Though considering [[BrokenBase the extremely mixed reception of the cartoon so far]] and the lack of any new game announcements aside from ports of the NES games, it's very doubtful that Mega Man is out just yet.

* AnticlimaxBoss: [[spoiler: Juno, the FinalBoss from the first game, big time. You can literally run around in circles shooting and dodging all of his attacks easily, and this was even worse if you used the fully charged [[GameBreaker Shining Laser]] in the fight.]]
** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as Juno himself points out: he's not designed for combat while Trigger is. Of course he's going to be rather easy.

* DemonicSpiders: Sharukurusus, the humanoid Reaverbots, in both games - they run fast, hit hard, and can leap to avoid shots. They also appear in packs, so you may be blasting away at one and fail to hear the clanking footsteps until its friend impales you. And in the first game, there's even an ''[[InvisibleMonsters invisible version]]'' that only reveals itself when it's just about to impale you.

** Tron and the Servbots (along with X and Zero) are set to appear in ''ProjectXZone''. Tron has now officially made more appearances (outside of cameos) than Volnutt has.

* InNameOnly: Much like with the ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' series, it could be very easily argued that this series has little, if anything, to do with any of the other series in the main timeline in both gameplay and story. ''Videogame/MegaManX7'', regardless of quality, could be seen as a more faithful transition to 3D than the Legends games. Of course, this is a handy example of TropesAreNotBad, as MegaManX7 is usually viewed as awful, while the Legends series is considered a string of classics.

* CultClassic: At the time of its release it didn't sell very well and had mixed critical reception. These days it has a decent fanbase who love the series and are calling for re-release of the first two titles and/or ''Legends 3''.

** Worth noting that not only did Capcom give the fans false hope (at least according to the fans; they ''did'' hype the game up quite a bit, plus encouraged fan participation in its construction), they didn't really explain ''why'' it was canceled (just that it "didn't meet criteria"). Plus, that Prototype version that was meant to test sales? Also canned, despite ''being completely finished''.
