Mega Man Star Force
Franchise Killer: The overwhelming mediocrity of Star Force 2 ended the popularity of the .exe verse, the last popular Megaman series, in Japan. They got their act together for the third installment, but sales didn't perk up. Not much funding at all was allocated to Operation Shooting Star, an attempt to uncancel both series that might've worked if it were a proper remake. A sad fate for the franchise that had its iteration of Mega Man as the face of its 20th anniversary.
Hey, It's That Voice!: Oh my God... Rika, you got Mega Twintails! Huge ones!
And to ratchet up the utter Tsundere — Rin Tohsaka shows up, too!
Funny. If you weren't looking, you might've confused Ophiuchus with Meryl Strife.
An antisocial protagonist whose life is thrown for a loop when a strange, otherworldly creature crash-lands in his life? Why, hello, Kiyo! Subaru is also Yuu. And Ren.
Too many jokes to think of can come from the fact that Sonia's voice comes from Wendee Lee.
And happens to be partnered with Lillith.
Bud is Kyle Rayner. And Gonta is Chiba.
If Zack Temple gets lost down a hole and comes across a giant face and a small drill, well, don't be surprised. Sadly, Kizamaro can only claim kinship with Maon, whose claim to fame is whistling.
Here in the What The Hell Category, Tom Dubius voices Ken Masters in Street Fighter Alpha: Generations. Shinsuke shares a voice with Hishiyasu Ichikawa.
Calm, long-haired young man with the capacity to be deadly? Tsukasa, meet Kurapika. And, hell, Pat? Well, lessee... Tenten, Batgirl, and Luna Noa all come to mind.
Hey look! Gemini is voiced by Pat! And in Japan, you might hear a shade of Meta Knight.
Chiyokichi is Doraemon, and Claude is Gimmy and Kunikida.
Damian Wolfe is friggin' .
Greedling Wolf in the anime has an interesting issue with his offspring. It's a different issue altogether, but so does Charles zi Britannia, oddly enough.
Jean Couronne XIV shares his Japanese voice with Chouza Akimichi.
Cepheus shares his voice not only with Forte.EXE, but with a young Shiki Tohno.
Pegasus Magic is Iori Yagami from the King of Fighters. Leo Kingdom is Millions Knives. And Dragon Sky is fracking
Roy Mustang. Burai is Tetsuro Tanaka.
Dr. Orihime is a busty animated woman. So is Jessica.
Hollow gave us " WRYYYYYYYYYY!"
It's a shame Phantom got so little time on the show, considering he's the Japanese Mandark.
Monjirou Gori shares a voice with fellow tough guy Wyper.
Yeti interestingly shares a voice with both Yamato and
Zero himself. Neji doesn't believe in the Stock Ness Monster.
Szilard is only too happy to prove him wrong.
It's good to know that Jimbei is no longer into sacrificing humans to his god, but that won't stop Biofreezer from demanding you worship him like one.
In the Did Not See That Coming Category, Aaron is played by BanchouLeomon. And Mamoru is Saizou.
Adding to his Hot Dad credentials (and his implicit Badass cred as well), Kelvin Stelar can claim kinship with Minato, Rick Hunter, Bang Shishigami, Arsene Lupin III... ah, Hell.
Akane is Lila, the Salon Maiden, and young Marik Ishtar. Hope is also Aoi, Rukia, Yuki, ... Yoko ah, Hell.
Shidou is not his bro. He is Fenrir Lunaedge, however.
Name's the Same: Yu-Gi-Oh! will soon see its OCG release Hidden Arsenal 6: Omega Xyz.
Relationship Voice Actor: Kelvin and Hope, ob vious ly.
The names of each of the zodiac bosses, their designs, and even the concept of star-based foes actually comes from a Chinese only game called Rockman Strategy. Ox / Taurus, Cancer, Libra, and Apollo share their designs almost directly from this game. Ox / Taurus was fire based in both, Cancer was water based, Libra was neutral, and Apollo was fire and neutral.
What Could Have Been: Star Force 4 was in the works, but they were informed they had to wrap the games up with 3, leading to the ending.
