** The first and second games got a physical re-release in 2005 on the PSP in Japan. While most of the game is direct port, there are a few differences (most notably the underwater stages in 2 run at full 30 fps in the PSP port, unlike the PSOne version which runs less than half).

** With the announcement that the Playstation 3 and PSP stores are going to be closing, and the Vita may not be far behind, this trope is coming into play again as the games have not been ported over to the newer systems and no physical copies have been released since the Playstation 1, [[NoExportForYou with the exception of the PSP games released only in Japan.]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''Mega Man Legends 3''.3'' would have continued the story from where ''Legends 2'' left off, as a 3DS title. It was cancelled as Capcom claimed "it did not meet certain requirements".

* GodNeverSaidThat: A rather controversial example that occurred around the cancellation of the third installment. When fans were naturally upset and asking why the game had been cancelled, the European Capcom twitter account released a statement [[https://giantbomb1.cbsistatic.com/uploads/original/9/93998/1844532-screen_shot_2011_07_21_at_5.41.17_pm.png that it was due to there not being enough interest from the fans.]] Naturally this led to an explosion of outrage from all the fans of the series who were angry that Capcom was blaming them. Eventually other Capcom twitter accounts came out and said that no, it wasn't because of lack of fan interest that the game was cancelled, and that the European account spoke out of turn, but people were already upset about it.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: For a while, the first two were very rare games, due to never being re-released in the West and being for the original Playstation and N64 which meant they were hard to find in stores. Their release on the Playstation Network has finally absolved the series of this status.

Added DiffLines:

* ManualMisprint: The English instruction booklet for the first game has numerous mistakes. Tron's bio describes her as Tiesel's daughter instead of his sister (and ''eldest'' daughter, at that!), and it claims that you use the Square button to adjust the camera while running instead of the Circle button (the Square button is actually used for firing your Mega Buster).


* CrackIsCheaper: ''The Misadventures of Tron Bonne''. Good luck finding the original for under a hundred dollars. For a while, it seemed unlikely to get a digital rerelease, as the rights for a song supposedly expired. Now it's available on UsefulNotes/PlayStationNetwork in North America for $6.


* ScrewedByTheLawyers: The major hurdle that kept the games from being released for digital download was legal issues. First, Capcom supposedly lost the rights to the voice acting over the years, and second, the original ''Legends'' has vending machines that depict a real-life beverage in Japan that Capcom had to pay licensing rights to use. Sony does not allow developers to change the source code for releases of games on the Playstation Network, so Capcom had to find workarounds for these problems. Come 2015 they finally got the first game out, with speculation going that the price ($9.99) is a bit higher than other classic games because they decided to just bite the bullet and pay for the beverage IP again, and the higher price is to pay the fee.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: A very unusual case. Fans feared for years that Keiji Inafune, who had been lobbying his superiors at Capcom for years to let him do a third game, would either leave Capcom or retire before he could pull it off. The trope was seemingly averted when, ten years after ''Legends 2'', Inafune finally [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ep-J6aMSNFo announced]] that development for the sequel was underway. A month later, Inafune left Capcom. Development of ''Legends 3'' then eased soon after, after Capcom cancelled the project for vague, barely-defined reasons, making this trope ultimately played straight (in a non-lethal way).

(By its cancellation, ''not'' Inafune's death as in most cases of the trope, thank goodness.)

* HeyItsThatVoice: [[{{Anime/Pokemon}} Pikachu]] is Bon, [[Anime/SailorMoon Sailor Jupiter]] is Mayor Amelia in the first game, and [[TheOtherDarrin Megs]] [[CrossDressingVoices himself]] in the second.


* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Hold onto these games if you own a copy; as TechnologyMarchesOn they have become very rare and are unlikely to ever be re-released. See ScrewedByTheLawyers for an explanation.
** Surprisingly, though, ''The Misadventures of Tron Bonne'' managed to get out of this. The first game finally got its release in September 2015, but no word on the second.
*** Finally averted for the entire series as Legends 2 finally saw a PSN release in April 2016.

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanLegendOfZelda
** The Old City power plant in ''1'' holds absolutely nothing of value, save for some very subtle foreshadowing that the Bonnes are building a robot nearby (a worker at the plant says they're having a mysterious power drain from the city). Rumors abounds about some secret in the power plant when there's apparently no point to it. The Old City itself isn't much better, as aside from the Bonnes and Bruno, nothing of importance happens here, either, making it a whole sector of the city with apparently nothing in it. Hmm...
** Gylde's base in ''2'' has the description of the main gate say "you'll need something stronger than the Buster to break this gate down." It's a hint that you have to take the side door into the base, but as most players will probably notice that and do so in the first place, they probably missed the gate description and are going to wonder how they can destroy the gate to re-enter the destroyed base.
