* ScrewedByTheNetwork: It's said that the reason this game didn't make it to America is that Creator/FromSoftware couldn't get a publisher. Creator/{{Sega}}, who published the ''VideoGame/{{Otogi}}'' titles, allegedly laughed before stating that it would never sell in the States. Another issue is that allegedly the game is of poor state during the post 9/11 climate. This becomes all the more painful when put up against From's ''other'' mecha game for Xbox, ''Murakumo: Renegade Mech Pursuit'', which was released stateside, and that game got trashed by critics to boot. Whoops...

* NoExportForYou: The original game was not released in the U.S., because publishers didn't think it would sell, i.e. this game was [[{{Irony}} too American for America]]. A later interview claimed that the 9/11 attacks also played a part in the decision on top of the Xbox's waning lifespan at the time of the game's original release. However, after 15 years, Devolver Digital got the rights and will release a remastered version under the title ''Metal Wolf Chaos XD''.[[note]]A primary reason is that it's [[https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/713 against the law]] in the US to use the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Seal_of_the_United_States Great Seal of the US]] or the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seal_of_the_President_of_the_United_States Seal of the President of the United States]] for anything other than official government business.
