The big nuclear war happens. Colleagues Dr. Wily and Dr. Light, knowing that their side lost the war, are playing games in the rubble, being the only ones left. Wily tries to rebuild the world as it was, via mass-producing cheap robots, while Light focuses on making a cyborg as close to human as he can. Being colleagues, they decide to have a friendly competition, and, to test whose plan is the better, pit their robots against each other.
Light's story about him building robots for peace and having them stolen by Wily was fabricated to convince Mega Man to fight. Which would explain why he gets released from jail and gets right back to making robots right after he gets defeated. ("I should have known Dr. Wily was behind this the whole time!")
But why are there newspapers being printed, covering Dr. Wily's arrest? Well, they were obviously printed by the two doctors, just throwing in random filler, including advertisements for a Cut Man video game, in the hopes Mega Man wouldn't notice.
But I don't know what all this means for the multiple spin-off series.
On popular demand, here's my favorite song from Mega Man 10.

Remember waaaaaaay back then, when I mentioned that Tanetane Island was originally so scary that it scared Itoi himself?
Well, you'd think that the "Claus" fight on Tane-Tane Island would be more intense than a regular fight with an Eerie Smile. I mean seriously, Claus is your brother that has been missing for 4 years, you'd think he would get a little more special treatment.
It's very likely that the "Secret Boss Fight" connected to the "Claus Backgrounds" may very well have taken part on Tane-Tane Island rather than the end of the game.

But imagine, if you will, that the plot makes no sense whatsoever, and anything that seems to be coherent about it is all in your head. Suda51 has stated that the inspiration for the game was the entirely bizarre and nonsensical movie El Topo, which was never supposed to make any sense, but involves a gun slinger taking out other assassins.
So basically, he's stated that No More Heroes, like El Topo, isn't supposed to make sense.

But just imagine. You somehow are so coldhearted that you didn't even press any buttons and just immediately turned the game off at the "End?" screen. You are Lucas in this game, and thus you have had your heart passed on to the Dark Dragon. And since you were completely uncaring about these people's fate, you basically instantly destroyed their world. Just like a dragon with a cold heart, such as this hypothetical player, would have.
But then imagine you are a kind-hearted person, which I'll just assume you are, and thus passed a kind heart to the Dragon. You saved the people of Tazmily because you cared about their fate, and started their lives anew.
Another thing about Mother 3 that leaves me absolutely speechless.
P.S. The picture is completely unrelated, but it's just awesome, and there's obviously no pictures of the dragon.

Of course I know that not everything is didactic, but here at ETS we pull out all the stops on theorizing. First of all, to open the door, you lose a bit of your energy, a clear metaphor for losing your soul. Inside the door is money, the supposed "root of all evil". (Well, the actual quote is, "The desire for money is the root of all evil," but whatever.)
And thus we reach the conclusion that sinners wind up in a tiny room with weird music and floating eyes staring at you for the rest of eternity.
And that's what you call scientific theory.

He suspected you would come to assist Lucas in his journey. And he wanted to flaunt the fact that he warped the timeline and made all of your work useless. Just like that. Why else would he have the Memory Boat Ride? Hey, look-- I have the Sky Runner, the Phase Distorter, the Helicopter, and the Submarine. I took them all. I even took Ness's yoyo, his bat, even his house. And what could he do to stop Giygas without all that? Absolutely nothing.
Ness failed. And Porky is making damn sure you notice. I'll say it again. What a little bastard.

We also know that getting lost in the Lost Woods means getting turned into a Skull Kid, dying, into a Stalfos. Yeah, there's no way that can have anything to do with the fact that Saria's Song plays in the background the whole time, no, not at all.

If you can believe it, we're revisiting Majora's Mask. But not really. For starters, look at this guys sword. It looks like the Great Fairy's Sword, only aged by a lot. And if you look really closely at the shield you can see the gaping mouth of the Mirror Shield.
Couple this with the fact that we last see Link in the Lost Woods, where if you die, you turn into a Stalfos, not to mention the fact that Link probably looked for Navi until he died, and you have a believable theory.

It's pretty obvious, in a passive aggressive way. Just think of the comments he makes when he sees Lucas and party washed up or the beach, not to mention Chapter 1 (obviously). Maybe he's angry because, prior to the events of Mother 3, they had an absolutely perfect and loving family, while Bronson appears to be a loner.
I can only wonder why.

But I know what you're thinking. How could Barnes get into the Forest or Lakebed Temple? Well, at this point, you cleared the Forest Temple of dangers, and we can assume that bomb fish roam around Lake Hylia outside of the temple.
Another story to tell the kids from Ordon, eh?

Hell, he's probably not even Irish! It's just how he hears himself in his mind!
