It might have already been mentioned but I don't know where. I just noticed it while playing Mega Man 3 today.
The robot masters featured in History Repeating: Blue are red (with the exception of Snake Man) while the robot masters featured in History Repeating: Red are all blue.

That's why the robot master songs are divided the way they are.

I'm sure I've seen this mentioned on the forums before, but it's still a neat thing.

I had this thought like a week after Blue was released.

If I remember right, someone mentioned this on one of the twitch tv times with the Megas. I'm not entirely sure whether this what what the Megas actually said or is just a faulty memory of it, but I seem to remember the response being:

The split was largely intended to be drawn along the stages where you don't see Break Man (Blue) vs. the stages that you do (Red). The important, and intentional, exception to that was Needle man because that was such a hard song to write that they wanted maximum time of putting it off. And at that point where they were deciding to split it into two albums, they had Magnet man mostly done, so that's why that swap happened.

So it actually just accidental that all the red are in blue and all the blue are in red, but they did think that was pretty cool.

Well, Needle Man's song is by far my favorite. I'm glad they took as much time as they wanted, well worth it.

And I got a friend who's never even played Mega Man but now wants to play a game based on Magnet Man because of his song.

You could be just be remembering this:

Something random I just noticed: all the remaining robot masters for Mauve are some shade of blue. I doubt that will ever be relevant though.


What I think is more significant is that if Magnet Man and Needle Man were switched, all the robot masters for "Mauve" would be the ones whose levels you encounter Protoman in. I don't know if they did that on purpose, but it would make sense. And I'm assuming the reason that those two are switched is because as they said, Needle Man was the hardest one for them to write.


I have no idea if this was ever confirmed by the Megas, although that would be pretty cool if my theory was right. And if not, it's pretty cool that somebody still remembers my theory 3 years later =D
