  • Metroid Fusion shares many of its plot points with Mega Mission. From the similarly behaving, ability-copying parasites who revive past adversaries and create a powerful, evil clone, to the hero's infection leading to translucent, partly organic armor, to how the final battle plays out. While there has been no official confirmation of Mega Mission's influence, the X Parasites' name may be intended as an homage.
  • Similarly Mega Man X6 plot also shares similarities. From the antagonist being a scientist infected with the maverick virus that creates a virus that resurrects dead reploids and turns then into slaves, also creates an evil version of one of the heroes, special groups of reploid opposed to the protagonists and even similarly named characters (Mother limited and nightmare mother respectively).
