For starters, he was the co-creator of ''Rockman''/''Franchise/MegaMan'' (alongside Akira Kitamura) and recently [[FranchiseZombie split]] from Creator/{{Capcom}} to [[StartMyOwn form his own company]] named Comcept.

Despite all the praise he deserves, he more or less had a long-term rivalry with Capcom's [[MoneyDearBoy money-driven]] marketing for the ''Mega Man'' series, and this resulted in complete disregard to his wants, culminating in ''VideoGame/{{Mega Man X}}6''-''X8'' and an altered plot to what Inafune had planned for the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series. After more madness with the games and the production of ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends 3'', Inafune [[RageQuit left]] the company, which caused ''[[UpdatedRerelease Ultimate]] VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' to be what it is now, and presumably also caused the [[ScrewedByTheNetwork scrapping]] of ''Legends 3''.

Also makes a cameo at ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2'', ''as a summon!''

Following his cameo in said game, people thought he was working [[http://www.siliconera.com/2011/10/10/keiji-inafune-record-of-agarest-war-director-disgaea-artist-together-for-rpg/ on a new project called]] [[WordSaladTitle Overwhelming Game Infinite Souls]]. [[NamesTheSame They]] [[http://www.siliconera.com/2011/10/18/the-keiji-inafune-you-know-is-not-making-compile-hearts-infinite-souls/ were wrong.]] His real new game is called ''King of Pirates''.

Recently, he launched a Website/{{Kickstarter}} campaign for ''VideoGame/MightyNo9'', a SpiritualSuccessor of ''VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}}'' featuring a protagonist who can use PowerCopying to [[TransformingMecha transform himself]].
