* AnticlimaxBoss: [[spoiler: Juno, the FinalBoss from the first game, big time. You can literally run around in circles shooting and dodging all of his attacks easily, and this was even worse if you used the fully charged [[GameBreaker Active Buster]] in the fight.]]
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qu-JQC_EaSg Mega Man Juno's leitmotif is Bach's little fugue in G minor.]] Perfect for his character.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9v07PY14Zyw The Flutter vs. Gesellschaft]]. So awesome that it was remixed for the character's appearances in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEbM9EuVR18 three]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XX1NdUbU6iI&feature=related other]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWvjOJ94lNk games]].
* BestLevelEver: [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon The Main Gate and Elysium]].
* BrokenBase: Over ''Legends 3''.
* DemonicSpiders: Sharukurusus, the humanoid Reaverbots, in both games - they run fast, hit hard, and can leap to avoid shots. They also appear in packs, so you may be blasting away at one and fail to hear the clanking footsteps until its friend impales you. And in the first game, there's even an ''[[InvisibleMonsters invisible version]]'' that only reveals itself when it's just about to impale you.
** Firushudot-- the crocodile-shaped Reaverbots from the Lake Jyun Gate-- are exclusive to one corridor in the first game, but they carry long-range [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic beam tech]] and are horrendously powerful even against beefed-up armor and firepower. And, again, they tend to pop out of the walls in groups. Your best bet is to either walk slowly or run like hell.
** From the second game, Shoebafun. Only found in two levels in the second game, but easily the most paranoia-inducing reaverbots. They are[[WallMaster floormasters]] that pop out at random and eat you alive, and the only way to escape them is either [[PressXToNotDie jumping at exactly the moment you see one coming up]] or through some serious button mashing once it's got you.
* EarWorm: The Servbot/Kobun Training Theme in ''Misadventures''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdLG5S3KwHo&feature=related The second game's Calinca Tundra Theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0PH_LaoW2I Bola's theme.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Bonne Family Pirates, especially the Servbots. To wit: they got an entire GaidenGame starring them (namely Tron and her cadre of Servbots) and Tron and the Servbots made the cut ''twice'' for the ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series, first in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 2]]'' where Tron and a Servbot are playable, and then in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 3]]'', the ''Kattelox Island'' stage features Teisel, Tron, and a lot of Servbots. Heck, Tron was announced as playable for ''Marvel Vs Capcom 3'' before any other Mega Man character, and, along with [[VideoGame/MegaManX Zero]], another fellow EnsembleDarkhorse, they are the only representatives in the game.
** Tron and the Servbots (along with X and Zero) are set to appear in ''ProjectXZone''. Tron has now officially made more appearances (outside of cameos) than Volnutt has.
* FoeYay: Mega Man Volnutt and Sera, ''in spades''.
* FridgeBrilliance: Why do you go to Data to save your game? Because he [[spoiler:holds your memory]].
* GameBreaker: The drill arm's near-zero range and inability to use while moving make it highly impractical to use as an offensive weapon, so most players will only use it for its wall-breaking utility. However, it has the highest attack power of any weapon in the game, and infinite energy. So if you come up on a enemy/boss that doesn't move around very much, you can do stuff like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeQIpiZu28I this]].
** Also the Active Buster in the first game, especially when it was fully powered up. It took a lot of money to do so, but once you did, the rest of the game was a piece of cake.
* GeniusBonus: The Gesellschaft and Gemeinschaft are sociology terms. Gesellschaft can be summed up as "rich and socially isolated from family" and Gemeinschaft can be "poor but a close family." The former is a large airship and the latter is a comparatively tiny rail-car, both owned by the Bonnes and reflect their current financial status (though "close family" here can mean that they are physically crammed close together).
* GoodBadBugs: In the second game. There is a bug where holding down the fire button and pressing forward quickly and repeatedly allowed you to rapid-fire the buster regardless of its Rapid stat. This is ''very'' useful for the S Class Digger Test.
* HarsherInHindsight: Legends never die...
** Or what Data says at the end of Legends 2...Might take a while, indeed.
* InternetBackdraft: Mega Man Legends 3 was recently canceled. Within ''mere minutes'', the announcing blogpost was filled to the brim with angry fans. Many of them swearing to never buy a Capcom product, again.
** Worth noting that not only did Capcom give the fans false hope (at least according to the fans; they ''did'' hype the game up quite a bit, plus encouraged fan participation in its construction), they didn't really explain ''why'' it was canceled (just that it "didn't meet criteria"). Plus, that Prototype version that was meant to test sales? Also canned, despite ''being completely finished''.
** One of the first casualties resulting from the backdraft was Capcom's livestreaming of ''Ultimate VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' the day before the San Diego Comic Con. The stream's chat was instantly flooded with people chanting "[[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve LEGENDS 3! LEGENDS 3!]]" to the point that Capcom had to ''shut down'' the broadcast due to the spam.
** It's also not exactly the [[DevilMayCry first]] [[ContinuityReboot strike]] [[AceAttorneyInvestigations for]] [[NoExportForYou many]] Capcom fans in recent days.
*** Let's not forget it also wasn't the [[BreathOfFire first game]] they [[BrokenBase radically changed, mostly in negative ways]], and then abandoned after the changes drastically reduced sales of its last installment. [[DisproportionateRetribution And also was savaged by both fan and critic]] far more than it deserved as a result of [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks these changes and slightly sloppy implementation]].
* InNameOnly: Much like with the ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' series, it could be very easily argued that this series has little, if anything, to do with any of the other series in the main timeline in both gameplay and story. ''Videogame/MegaManX7'', regardless quality, could be seen as a more faithful transition to 3D than the Legends games.
* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Mega Man Volnutt. He is coupled with ''any'' girl in the ''Legends'' series. Yes, he is even coupled with the supporting and minor female characters.
* MagnificentBastard: Teisel has shades of this. The Bonne's are utterly devoted to him, and many, many times in Misadventures of Tron Bonne, the Servbots talk about how inspiring and charismatic he is. While he's prone to becoming angry when something gives him trouble, when he is defeated he tends to either become relatively quiet (when Mega Man defeats the Marlwolf), accept it with surprising grace (when Megs defeats the Focke Wolf), or smoothly improvise a way to salvage victory from defeat (after Mega beats Bruno) by [[spoiler:not only convincing Mega Man to not turn the Bonnes in, but also noting to Tron that since Mega Man is such a good digger, he will eventually find the Mother Lode, and when he does, they can take it first. Cementing Teisel as this trope: This plan goes off without the slightest hitch.]].
* MemeticLoser:
** [[{{Loveable Rogue}} Teisel Bonne]], who whenever he has to fight against Mega Man he is bound to lose however given simply fighting against a highly advanced precursor combat android in the Legends games. In the other games he gets captured early to the point that some parts of the Fandom think of him like this while forgetting that besides doing all the raiding schemes before Bon Bonne and Tron came into scene.
** In Universe there is the case of Denise Marmalade (the {{Hero Antagonist}}) in The Misadventures of Tron Bonne. Suffering the same kind of punishment that Tron gets without a Mecha (on the first two rounds, on the third she gets it but it is a variant of a construction one barely modified) and fits the {{Failure Hero}} trope to a T. In universe even Tron that is a {{Villain Protagonist}} feels sorry for her and [[{{Throw The Dog A Bone}} gives as a farewell present]] the {{Big Bad}} of the game. Cue the {{Crowning Moment of Heartwarming}} that is when Teisel says that Tron cares for her friend [[{{Friendship Denial}} (which she denies)]].
* MemeticMutation: Not as prominent as some memes, but there's a joke among fans of the series that Mega Man underwent "reverse puberty" between games 1 and 2, due to a change in voice actors making him suddenly sound younger.
* NightmareFuel: Pretty much all the ruins in the first game, as well as all the Bonne's strongest robots (Tron's giant spider robot, the Feldynaught is a standout example). The second game's ruins are pretty scary too, although special mention goes to the [[LethalLavaLand Saul Kada Ruins]].
** This article would be remiss if it did not mention [[HellIsThatNoise this]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrAFM1tLkzs&playnext=1&list=PLB4FF66042694CAEC&index=13 music:]]
** That horrible buzzing sound your alarm makes when Reaverbots are nearby is ''guaranteed'' to make you jump. ''Every single time.'' Thankfully, it was removed in the sequel.
** The Old City in the first game is a more mundane example. It's a sector of Kattelox that's mostly abandoned. Unlike the rest of the island, it's bleak, gray, and dirty. [[NothingIsScarier There's no music whatsoever]], and the streets are completely empty...aside from the packs of feral dogs that are ready to rip all intruders to shreds.
* ShipToShipCombat: The fanbase is split almost directly down the middle on whether Megs should be with Roll or Tron.
** And lord knows what he's been up to with [[spoiler:Yuna and Sera]] in the real time following the ending of Legends 2. Suffice to say that some of the Ship To Ship Combat in the fandom revolves not around which girl Mega Man should take, but [[MarryThemAll whether or not he should take all of them]].
* StrawmanHasaPoint: There's a scene in Manda Island in Legends 2 where Tron is trying to break Mega Man's trust in Roll by telling him she overcharges him for weapons and effectively steals money from him. This isn't presumably supposed to be anything but Tron making stuff up, but in Vprisoner's LP he points out how much the accusation resonates due to how ridiculously expensive it is to fully upgrade several weapons in both games, with it requiring an elephantine amount of grinding.
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: The first was in no way bad, but it's amazing how much a simple thing like being able to move while locked on to a target can improve an experience.
* ThatOneBoss: Yakuto Krabbe, Tron's crab-like machine in ''Legends 2''. And considering it's one of the earliest bosses where you will have little in terms of upgraded weaponry, it's a hell of a WakeUpCallBoss.
* ThatOneLevel: The Nino Ruins in ''2'', which isn't suprising considering it's a DownTheDrain area and has all of its trappings: most of it has you moving veeeeery sloooooowly through water (which also messes with your jumping physics, making it harder to dodge enemies), is labyrinthine and very, ''very'' [[MarathonLevel long]], and it's packed to the brim with some of the more [[SmashMook tedious]] and/or [[GoddamnedBats annoying]] Reaverbots in the game. At least it's got some [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ex61b-Tujc good music]] for you to listen to. By extension the Kimotama Caverns fall into this category as well, just without the cool music (you instead get the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrAFM1tLkzs Clozer Woods ruin music]] from the first game, which is more NightmareFuel / HellIsThatNoise than anything).
* ThatOneSidequest: The S Class Digger test in the second game.
** The Technical Course racing minigame in the first.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: This happened to the series ''in general'', since it was a 3D Mega Man game and it was nothing like the Classic or X.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: [[http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/vfgdWw59zi4/hqdefault.jpg Juno]] from the first game and [[http://www.legends-station.com/mml2/characters/bodymaster.png The Master]] from the second game are both very feminine looking males.
* VindicatedByHistory: In 1998, the game had rather poor sales, and fans of Legends were rare. Good luck finding people who admitted to hating Legends ''now''!
