The circumstances behind the release of the "Breaking Out" demo. A fan poked somewhere he wasn't supposed to go and ripped a low-quality MP3 of the song, posting it on the forums. The Protomen edited out his post, then released a high-quality version in their newsletter, reasoning that if everyone was going to have one they may as well have it in good quality.
At one show, Heath Who Hath No Name fell on his back while playing a song. He continued playing while on his back.

The fans raising 32K for a documentary project whose goal was 8K. The initial goal was met, and surpassed, in five hours.
When Panther fell in the cookie incident, he later recalled the voice of God speaking to him, telling him it was his time. The Nightwalker said it wasn't and told him to stay with them. It worked.
Ascended Fanboys The Ringer and Steve, who were called upon to play keyboard in "The Stand" and sing as Megaman, respectively, when Panther fell.
In July 2011, their website was hacked. Combined with a false cease and desist letter and that Capcom canceled Megaman Legends 3, morale was low and people were panicked. So the Protomen sent everyone an epic news mailer detailing exactly how the C&D was fake, that the website would be back up soon, and reminded them to not get too angry at Capcom. And they weren't even that angry at the people who hacked them, jokingly suggesting The Megas were playing a prank. They closed the letter by renaming their tour "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now."
The hack was also taken care of the day after it began.
What was the band doing after their fall 2011 tour ended? Besides working on the new CDs, they prepared for a stage show called Terminator the Second, which is The Terminator 2In The Style OfWilliam Shakespeare. And by prepared they meant composing music for it and acting in it.
According to witnesses at the Queen tribute show, Panther not only successfully pulled off the Freddie Mercury scream in "Under Pressure", but made the microphone and stage vibrate as he did so.
The March 5th 2012 news post, appropriately titled "Hold Onto Your Butts...Again!". Not only did the Protomen release a 30 second clip of music from their live Queen cover show, they also announced Makeup and Vanity Set releasing his 8-bit remix on vinyl, and an April music video shoot for fan favorite Act II track "Light up the Night." Even better? Fans were allowed to participate as extras!
The April 19 2012 news post. While three shows were canceled, the reason for it was that the Protomen were asked to open a Tenacious D concert. And even better? They were preselling the Queen album and t-shirt.

At MAGFest 2013, the band reconvened in Jamspace, after their main stage show was cut short, to play "Due Vendetta" on a meowing plastic cat keyboard christened "Freddie Meowcury". It was equal parts funny and awesome.

This Sons of Fate clip has Protoman calling the rest of the band back out for an encore to fight... by calling them sissies and insulting the audience.
Later, Panther gets revenge by ordering him crowdsurfed all the way out the door.
Panther: That's what he gets for trash talkin' the Protomen.
The original song preview at PAX 2013. It was later revealed to be titled "Built to Last," and was part of two official Mega Man tribute albums.
Dr. Light spending 12 years building Protoman. Protoman puts up a good fight before being defeated, too.
Dr. Light creating Megaman without even realizing it.
The entirety of "The Will of One." Megaman defies Dr. Light and goes to learn the truth about his brother and the City, and sets off to fight Wily. As he visits Protoman's gravesite, he reads a message carved there: "Hope Rides Alone." With renewed energy, determined to finish what his brother started, he heads to the fortress. A crowd follows. As Wily's loudspeakers begin to chant the mantra, determined to quiet them, they throw the words right back as a battle cry. Bonus points for the music being awesome.
The entirety of "Vengeance," with Megaman tearing through the robot army like it's nothing.
Protoman casually plowing through a chunk of Wily's army as he makes his way to Megaman in "The Stand."
Emily's speech in "Father of Death" is one big 'screw you' directed at Albert Wily.
