* CultClassic: Some actually say it's fairly good. Probably due to the familiar gameplay.
* 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.
