* DistantFinale: Zero's ending was retconned into this. Realizing he is a TyphoidMary, he enters a capsule [[SealedBadassInACan and goes to sleep]] [[VideoGame/MegaManZero for about a hundred years]] while scientists purge him of the Sigma Virus and develop a true antidote by studying his systems. Capcom eventually stated this does not happen immediately after defeating Gate, but instead happens after X and Zero have many more unspecified adventures saving the world (such as the immediate sequels).

* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: The game just takes you back to the last checkpoint you reached in the level if you die or even use a continue. Given how difficult the game is, this is very beneficial.
** However this can also be a complete pain if you’ve die in a boss fight, and your sub tanks are empty meaning if the boss is particularly brutal you’ll be stuck having to intentionally killing yourself over and over again to get a game over. Made worse if you’re collecting hostages which conveniently give you an extra life each time, meaning you could be stuck fighting a brutally hard boss with a slim chance of winning with 9+ lives. Have fun.

** However this
hard parts from the beginning, but in some occasions can also be a complete pain if you’ve die in a boss fight, and your sub tanks are empty meaning if nuisance. If the boss is particularly brutal you’ll player does not have the proper equipment for the next area, they will be stuck having to intentionally killing yourself themselves over and over again to get a game over. Made worse if you’re collecting hostages which conveniently give you an extra life each time, meaning you could be stuck fighting a brutally hard boss with a slim chance of winning with 9+ lives. Have fun.the player has many lifes, whether they were obtained from 1_ups or from lost Reploids.


* PermanentlyMissableContent: Unlike ''X5'', the Reploid civilians can be possessed by the Nightmare Viruses. If one of those viruses possesses them, the Reploid (and thus the useful enhancement parts they may carry) is gone for good. Left in their place is some kind of EmptyShell that you should probably MercyKill. As you can guess, sometimes a Nightmare Virus is placed right next to a Reploid, giving you three seconds of reaction before that Reploid is possessed. The worst offender of this is located in Weapons Center, where a Nightmare Virus is placed exactly on top of a Reploid, so you have less than a second!

** Letting a Nightmare possess a civilian Reploid can potentially mean [[PermanentlyMissableContent losing useful parts and power-ups forever]]. Needed that Jumper part to help you leap the SpikesOfDoom in Gate's Lab 1 without [[DoubleJump Zero]], [[CeilingCling Shadow Armor]], or Blade Armor's [[VideoGameDashing air dash]]? Chances are the Reploid that had it went Maverick and that part is gone for good.
