** With Inti Creates' ''Mighty Gunvolt'' series, at least the companies are still on good terms if not some players, with ''Burst'' being quite literally Gunvolt handing Beck an olive branch, with the Mighty No. 9 fanbase clutching it almost like a lifeline.

** It's become popular to view Dr. White as an AmbiguouslyEvil MadScientist who doesn't really care about his flawed creation [[spoiler:Ray]]. Another interpretation could be that [[spoiler: [[TheAtoner he was already one as Bill Blackwell]], and [[OldShame doesn't want to be reminded of it]] from anything like Ray, his father, or being addressed as Bill]].
** At times it feels like Bat's encouraging Beck whenever he gets stuck on his way to fight him. Is this Bat being the BloodKnight he's always been and itching for a one-on-one fight or is that a remnant of his old personality cheering Beck on much in the same way Brand was communicating his own distress?
* AntiClimaxBoss: Without using the right powers, [[spoiler:the final battle with Trinity]] is full of predictable patterns and drags on for so long that any excitement that could be gained is drained away. It doesn't help that said boss likes to turn invincible for upwards of 45 seconds whenever you do sustained damage to it. [[note]]Players have found that Cryo, Brandish and Battalion help.[[/note]]

* Awesome/BestBossEver: Ray's own boss battle in the Vermilion Destroyer DLC stage, especially on Hard/Hyper mode. This fight is not only a fanservice throwback to X and Zero's boss battle in ''VideoGame/MegaManX5'', Ray herself is fast and vicious, and she keeps players on their toes throughout the fight. The fight gets even more fun when she goes into her [[TurnsRed desperation mode]] and starts pulling off more aggressive and sneakier attacks, reminding players there's a reason why they have an Action Shift button to graze through attack.
* 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 overreaction, and that the game isn't as terrible as made out to be, even if it didn't meet expectations.

** The game's English dub, some find it decent, and with certain characters like Aviator, add charm to their character, while others find it bland and at times annoying to the point of switching over to the Japanese voices.

*** Call Design "E" almost won the voting contest with only a few votes percentage below Design F. The fans who supported her love her so much that they even made up a FanNickname for her ("Echo") and organized a campaign to include her into the game, even though she is not going to be Call herself but a different character, called "The Echo Chamber Campaign." Intl Creates acknowledged this by making Call E one of ''four'' different versions of Call in [[VideoGame/AzureStrikeGunvolt Mighty Gunvolt Burst]] that you can use.

The fans who supported her love her so much that they even made up a FanNickname for her ("Echo") and organized a campaign to include her into the game, even though she is not going to be Call herself but a different character, called "The Echo Chamber Campaign."
** Though she couldn't make it past the first voting round, Design "D" also received much attention from fans, as she was designed by Inafune himself. The fact that she looks pretty similar to [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Doctor Wily]] but as a Roll-ish RobotGirl (mainly due to the "wings hair" that both characters sport) contributes to this. More than that, a fan campaign to get her into the game as a villain, titled "The Call D-pository", popularized the idea of depicting her in villainous roles similar to Dr. Wily in fan works or even as Doctor Wily's assistant, [[EvilCounterpart similar to Roll's role]] towards Doctor Light in {{Crossover}} fan works with the ''Mega Man'' franchise. [[spoiler:Comcept took note of this, as her design is used for Trinity, the final boss]].
** Apart from the nine Call design voting choices, the Call with the pink hair received much attention from fans alongside the Roll-looking Call, which would later be designated as Design "F" in the voting contest and become Call's official design, who were featured in a concept art in the early days of the Kickstarter campaign and before the voting contest officially started. Part of this attention stems from the fact that she looks very similar to Aero, a character that would've supposed to make her debut in an upcoming-but-now-canceled ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends 3''.

*** Many people looking at those likely would, nowadays, see Gunvolt helping him up, taking hold of the legacy of ''Mega Man'' for him, while he learns that, maybe, just maybe, he will manage it one day.

** VideoGame/RedAsh, the game which caused so much terrible flak with the fandom? DevelopmentHell, verging on {{Vaporware}}. Comcept itself? Bought out by Level-5. The animation? Nothing new heard on it. Mighty No. 9 is the first time the franchise encountered a FranchiseKiller... before it even became one.

** Cryo is TheScrappy, mainly due to how much she annoys most players. Her color palette and neotenous proportions make her resemble [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Omochao]], another robotic character with a similar hatedom.



* 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".

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Dr. White. at the end of the game, he comes to the prison where Dr. Blackwell is currently staying. Dr. Blackwell is in prison because years ago, he committed an act of terrorism to prevent Trinity from causing the plot of the game from happening years earlier, without a Beck to purify her. Rather than apologize for creating a robot as unpredictable and dangerous as Trinity, and leaving her in the hands of the dangerously irresponsible Gregory Graham, he coldly lectures the old man who spent years in prison when he saved everyone from White's colossal screw-up, and dismisses the old man's concerns. [[spoiler: Made worse because Dr. Blackwell is his father. So, unless this characterization is deliberate, he's far less sympathetic than he has any right to be.]]
* VindicatedByHistory: More recently, fans have come to blame Creator/DeepSilver for some of the worst problems the release of the game has, and games like ''[[VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt Mighty Gunvolt Burst]]'' have made Beck into a worthy, if slightly tarnished, successor to Mega Man.
