** 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''.

It only got worse when it was revealed that Inafune offered to help finish the game, and was shot down.

* InternetBackdraft: Within ''mere minutes'' of the news of ''Mega Man Legends 3'''s cancellation, the announcing blogpost was filled to the brim with angry fans. Many of them swearing to never buy a Capcom product again.

*** 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. Things started to turn around when the first six games of the classic series were re-released digitally on PSN, Xbox Marketplace, Nintendo eShop, 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.

* ContestedSequel: On the one hand, ''Legends 2'' had a deeper and more involved storyline that revealed a lot about Mega Man's past and the lore of the world as a whole, and also had a wider variety of weapons and equipment with some gameplay tweaks. On the other hand, it also had much fewer optional side areas and sidequests, and its dungeons were smaller and less complex, making for much more linear and constricting gameplay. It's up for opinion which game is better.

** Also in the second game, skipping the cutscene before the FinalBoss's second form will start the fight with the boss missing a small sliver of health.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Found surprisingly in the [[AllThereInTheManual English instruction booklet]]. Among other things, Tron's bio describes her as Tiesel's daughter instead of his sister (and ''eldest'' daughter, at that!), and it claims that you use the Square button to adjust the camera while running instead of the Circle button (the Square button is actually used for firing your Mega Buster).

** The Clozer Sub-Gate in ''1'' becomes this if you don't know the GuideDangIt. At a particular part in the dungeon you find a cracked ceiling that has to be demolished using two specific special weapons. The problem is that 1, you may not have those weapons if you haven't gone exploring the dungeons well; 2, it isn't immediately obvious you can break that ceiling because this is the only time in the game you encounter a destructible ceiling' and 3, there's only a single hint in the game that you have to use a certain special weapon to break the ceiling, given in the description of the Grand Grenade. Players who don't know what they're supposed to do here can get stuck forever pondering how to proceed.
