YMMV / Mega Man 10


  • Contested Sequel: While many consider this game to be inferior to Mega Man 9 (but still good), there are some fans who actually think that the game's a major improvement over 9. Reasons stated include 10 having a fairer level design (9 was notorious for being Platform Hell), the inclusion of (the completely optional) Easy Mode for those who still think the game is a bit too difficult, Proto Man being available from the get-go as opposed to being relegated to DLC (you can even visit the shop with him this time around), and the grand return of Bass (even if it's DLC). The game actually remembers that Mega Man 2 isn't the be-all, end-all to the series, and it's that much more of an enjoyable experience for it to this subset of the fandom.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Sheep Man started off as The Scrappy, but evolved into this as well as a Memetic Badass.
  • Game-Breaker: Many people cite the Triple Blade as the game's Metal Blade equivalent. It has a low ammo cost, and the Spread Shot makes it easier to hit enemies above or below Mega Man in addition to shredding anything in close range when spammed.
    • The other contender is the Water Shield, just for how many projectiles it spawns upon use.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: All that talk in the old days about Mega Man X being the 10th installment of the series is a whole lot funnier now that there actually is a tenth installment...
  • It's Easy, So It Sucks: When it was announced that this game would have an Easy Mode, it got a lot of flak from "Stop Having Fun" Guys. Never mind the fact that Easy Mode is completely optional.
  • Memetic Mutation: Mega Man's "UNGHHH..." and how it came out of nowhere, even though Roll said "UNGH..." when you beat 4 Robot Masters.
  • Scrappy Weapon: Thunder Wool. It is slow to fire, difficult to use properly, and blows through all its ammo in 6 shots. To make matters worse, the cloud can be destroyed if an enemy or projectile collides with it. This means you can't reliably use it at close range or in a tight corridor, since that pretty much guarantees that it'll disappear before it can fire off a bolt, thus wasting a ton of your ammo.
    • To quote one GameFAQs poster: "Anything the Thunder Wool does, another weapon does better and for less ammo cost."
  • Tough Act to Follow: Coming after the acclaimed Mega Man 9, this game tends to get this status.
