  • Ok, in Namco × Capcom, the Gesellschaft was used to fly to space to get to Eden (even though it couldn't in Mega Man Legends). So how come Tron doesn't just use it and fly up there?
    • The...physics of the worlds work differently? Just look at all the combo juggling. Also, the Gesellschaft was destroyed in the first Legends game, and this game undoubtedly takes place afterwards.
  • If Oros Phlox are really the will of the stone manifest then why do Ein and Drei have physical problems? Shouldn't they have more perfect bodies since they came from the stone to carry out it's will?
    • Presumably Rule of Funny since there's a quite a few jokes at their expense.
  • Didn't Axel and Alfimi have amnesia when they got transported to the Endless Frontier world while in Kouta's case, he didn't have the amnesia thanks to the Roar armor (although Warrior Roar was sleeping the whole time)? Badassery aside, how come Sanger doesn't have amnesia when he gets there? Ya'd think Monolith Soft would have given him his amnesiac personality from Alpha Gaiden (granted Wodan Ymir's already filling in for that role but still...)
    • Then again, Reiji, Xiaomu, KOS-MOS, T-ELOS, and M.O.M.O. didn't have amnesia when they first entered the Endless Frontier. There's a little YMMV though, since the latter three are all androids, while the first two are known for dimension hopping, and as such, probably wouldn't be affected by this kind of scenario after doing it for so long.

    • On that note, why no Wodan Ymir? He could have at least appeared at the penultimate level and instead of some Sanger clones, they could just use both W-15 Wodan Ymir and body snatcher W-05 Gagun Laos. Sanger's got so many clones nowadays anyway.
    • Too much awesome/collateral damage, considering their fight broke through something meant to withstand an alien apocalypse. Just imagine what THREE of them would do.
  • In chapter 23 of PXZ2 (the Balrog chapter), activating the Dragonturtle engine's Limit Break requires one to shout the passphrase "Emergency boosters, activate". Urashima specifically asks X to shout it, then asks Reiji after X's shout fails. What is this a reference to? It could be a Final Fantasy VII Actor Allusion, but that doesn't explain Reiji's involvement.
    • Maybe it's not a reference.
  • The futuristic series (Mega Man X, Mega Man Legends, Space Channel 5, Xenosaga, Strider, Captain Commando, Cyberbots, and Star Gladiator) canonically take place at various different points in the future, some even being thousands of years apart, yet these games treat them all as if they happen concurrently, since most of the characters from these series are familiar with each other.
    • The "present day" has some similar issues too. The settings of Shenmue and Ace Attorney are literally 30 years apart.
  • the final moments of Chapter 37, Leon receives a call from Ada telling him about Ouma's plan...only this is a Leon from seven years in the future. so (1) how did Ada know he'd be there? And (2) was it the Ada from seven years in the future, or seven years in the past? Her message about meeting him down the line could apply to either (it could be her directly saying when their timelines catch up to each other they'll meet again, or it could be a fancy way of saying see you later. It's pretty unclear.
