Trivia / Mega Man X4

Go To

  • Cross-Dressing Voices: X in the infamous English dub. Also Split Mushroom.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Force Armor or Nova Armor, for X's armor in this game.
    • Subverted with the "Jello Man" name in reference to Double. Many who either vaguely recall the name in reference to him but don't remember where from, or who heard of the name from such a person, may call Double's first form Jello Man due to his appearance. Ironically, those who do remember where it came from will tell you that it was on the character list section of Capcom's website before X4's release... And referred to his Maverick alter ego with the jello-looking circuitry / energy / whatever stuff that is in his body. So it was created for some form of official use, ultimately didn't stick, yet still ended up making the rounds with fans in a different capacity.

  • Redubbing: While it was planned for both Maverick Hunter X4 and the X Collection before both plans were scrapped, fans have taken it upon themselves to redub many of the cutscenes found in the game, with at least three being done by Zero's official voice actor Lucas Gilbertson. A recent redub of Double's betrayal also had the involvement of Yuri Lowenthal as members of the 17th Unit and Brad Swaile as X, in a way that was connected to one of Mark Gatha's other roles.
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
    • In the infamous English dub, some voice actors of the game also did some roles in Mega Man 8:
      • Ruth Shiraishi voiced both X and the original Mega Man.
      • Wayne Doster voiced both Zero and Duo.
      • Matthew Meersbergen voiced both Colonel and Search Man.
      • Michelle Gazepis voiced both Iris and Roll.
    • The Japanese dub is no different:
      • Ryotaro Okiayu voiced both Zero and Proto Man.
      • Issei Futamata voiced Web Spider, Auto, Astro Man and Grenade Man
      • Takashi Nagasako voiced both Magma Dragoon, Tengu Man and Search Man

    • Also, in the Japanese dub, both X and Zero's voice actors ends up voicing Renji and Byakuya, respectively.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X was intended to be a Continuity Reboot of the Mega Man X series, up to X6. X4 was well-received but suffers from Narm in its cutscenes, so it would have been interesting to see how the game would be received with new cutscenes and voice acting (not to mention a possible fleshing out of Magma Dragoon and Repliforce, in general). To make matters worse, the new dub for the Updated Re-release was removed so it could be a new feature for the reboot series.
    • Zero was originally going to have an armor set of his own, but it was removed for time constraints.
    • Concept art of X's Ultimate Armor had it turn into a glider board. This was retained in the Japanese only model kit by Bandai.
