* WinBackTheCrowd: ''Mighty Gunvolt'' came out with glowing praise, and managed to make more than a few burnt-out backers more willing to give Beck and pals another chance.

** Ray's trailer did her no favors either. Concept art shows breasts on her figure, though hints to her gender on her form itself include the curve of her hip and her boots being high-heeled. It does not help that her design resembles [[VideoGame/MegaManX Ze]][[VideoGame/MegaManZero ro]] [[note]]Which may have been intentional; her name is similar to ''rei'', the Japanese word for "zero."[[/note]], who was infamous in the fanbase for being [[DudeLooksLikeALady mistaken as a girl]]

** For some, it's the Mighty Numbers assistance. After you beat a level, the Mighty Number from that one will appear in the stage of the boss who that weapon is weak to and provide help. The problem is that it completely spoils the weakness loop, and for those who don't mind that, the assists themselves are pitiful most of the time due to being confined to one-time encounters per stage. Some standout examples are Cryosphere removing some near-useless background enemies, Brandish removing some ''actually useless'' foreground enemies, and Countershade altering a cutscene slightly.

* ScrappyWeapon:
** Pyrogen's weapon. Beck can charge up an explosion, with size increasing the longer it charges. The problem lies in that low-charge explosions have a puny range, while high-charged explosions take a long time to build (and Beck has to avoid getting hit, no less). Attempting to hold a full charge for too long causes Beck to be stunned after the explosion. All in all, not a worthwhile weapon to use, as the close-range capabilities have already been filled by Brandish's swords.
** Countershade's weapon is relatively weak. Beck can fire off a bullet that will home in on enemies if it bounces off a surface. Not a bad idea, but it's damned by the fact that you only get a pitiful three shots before having to wait for your weapon energy to replenish.

** One slowly seems to be developing between it and ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt'', its fellow SpiritualSuccessor. When the first game of the latter came out, it was seen as SoOkayItsAverage by many ''Mega Man'' fans who were putting their hopes into ''Mighty No. 9'', but after ''Mighty No. 9'' was berated and the second ''Azure Striker: Gunvolt'' game was released but months later as a much-improved sequel, plenty of disgruntled fans jumped ship and started calling ''Gunvolt'' the true successor to ''Mega Man'', which didn't make many of ''Mighty No. 9's'' remaining fans happy. A similar thing also happened with ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' which started as a very indie game before the release at Steam and was at first criticized for staying too much to the original formula, but the same faithfulness was eventually considered a good thing (which also include tons of ShoutOut to the original series) when compared with ''Mighty No. 9'''s disaster.

* MisaimedMarketing: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YngbHOz--oc Masterclass trailer]] takes a brief swipe at anime fans, which is rather strange considering that comprises a large number of the backers and fans. Note that this foul was on Deep Silver's part, as even the crew at Creator/IntiCreates-- as in the actual development team for the game-- weren't happy about it, either.

* MorePopularSpinoff: Similarly to the [[VindicatedByHistory treatment]] of Inti Creates' other ''Mega Man''-esque offering, ''Azure Striker Gunvolt'', the ''Mighty Gunvolt'' series has been gaining much more praise than it did initially after ''Mighty No. 9''[='=]s harsh reception, and it's sequel, ''Mighty Gunvolt Burst'', also has been viewed more favorably on release, with some even claiming Beck's portion of the game as "what ''Mighty No. 9'' 'should' have been".



** An important factor that very few have called out is the physical development of the game that occurred over at Inti Creates -- namely, their use of the inferior Unreal Engine 3 which resulted in netcoding issues that delayed the project, as opposed to Unreal Engine 4 which they are known to have had access to, as this was the engine properly used for Bloodstained which began only months after Mighty No. 9.

* GraphicsInducedSuperDeformed: According to the official art book, ''"the extremities have been enlarged and arranged in a balance that looks better in motion"''. (If there wasn't a better way to do it it's completely debatable).

* BileFascination: Between a disastrous advertising campaign, and high expectations from Megaman fans paired with problematic production which ultimately reads like a Shakespearean tragedy, many people are drawn to this game as point-and-laugh fodder. That said, others who played it believe that some of the hate is based on overreactions, and that the game isn't as terrible as made out to be, even if it didn't as great as expected.
