Trivia: Mega Man 8
- Franchise Killer: Not necessarily bad (there have definitely been worse-received games in the franchise), but the Classic series slowed to a halt after this game, with only a spin-off game coming after. It would be many years before a proper sequel would come, and by then Capcom decided to strip down the series and return the it to the gameplay style of Mega Man 2.
- Milestone Celebration: The game was created to celebrate the franchise's 10th anniversary, and it really shows in the opening animation.
- Name's the Same: Compare Aqua Man with Aquaman. This is presumably the reason his NetNavi counterpart was eventually renamed SpoutMan.EXE in English materials.
