* CultClassic: Some actually say it's fairly good. Probably due to the familiar gameplay.
* HilariousInHindsight: The ending for the game has Doropie escaping from Empress Elsyia's space fortress via an escape pod as the space fortress itself explodes constantly from the outside before its inevitable destruction and once that happens, Doropie is then very happy to be surprisingly speaking to a recovering Kagemaru through the use of the escape pod's own small transmitting monitor. The entire scenario itself pretty much predates ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX4 Mega Man X4]]'s'' own ending minus the [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet aspects of it]] and that the animation scene of the space fortress' destruction is almost identical to the same animation scene of ''Mega Man X4's'' own credits scene.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Incidentally, this game actually beat ''VideoGame/MegaMan4'' to the Charge Shot. It's also got more directions to shoot, much like Bass's abilities to shoot in any direction.
* SpiritualAdaptation: ''VideoGame/RosenkreuzStilette'' has a MagicalGirl protagonist and an explicit homage to Mega Man, similar to this game.
