Towards the end of its life (although we may yet see a revival), the Mega Man X series suffered from quite the identity crisis. It's always hard to figure out what's wrong when your coolness rating starts dropping, but Capcom really struggled here. One of the biggest examples is Axl, a new character who was introduced alongside Z and Zero. Axl looks like a fanart reject, complete with bizarre pistol-like weapons, spiky hair, and a young and energetic personality. There's bad pandering, and then there's Axl.
