Why... Why is there a single bat enemy from classic MegaMan at the beginning of "Armored Armadillo's level" yet all the others are the same ones in the rest of the game? It has annoyed me ever since I first played MegaMan X years ago.

@bumbervevo @Darkness_89 I also like it, but I think they could have used the sprite on all bats to make the stage a great reference. :blobcatthinking:

@LoveyApprentice @bumbervevo that's one thing that always made me wonder? was that a reference or did they switch bat sprites and forgot about that one bat?

@Darkness_89

@LoveyApprentice

I never really thought about it, but I guess that is kinda strange to go through the trouble of creating an entirely new enemy that's used only once throughout the game. I don't think that classic bat ever shows up again outside of that one instance, does it?

@Darkness_89 @LoveyApprentice
(not entirely new, but to have an enemy that's only used once is pretty strange)

@bumbervevo @LoveyApprentice true, it's not like a special event or a bonus challenge enemy.

@bumbervevo @LoveyApprentice no it doesn't, I did a quick search and that's all I found out about it besides it's name.

@bumbervevo @Darkness_89 I don't think they made a new enemy, they must have just changed that bat's sprite and left only the command to drop the 1-up. But there must be one more reason to put that reference...

@bumbervevo Yeah the 1-up is great... But it annoys me that it is inconsistent, it's like if all of a person's socks are one color but one of the socks are a different color without a matching sock.
