Probably already canon, but...

I was thinking the other day "Why doesn't X keep his Fourth Armor after each game?" and then, replaying X6(A game I hardly ever touch... Ever.) Alia mentions that Falcon Armor took some damage, and that it can't fly anymore. And then it hit me.

The game's don't magically delete the armor. The fight between X and Sigma wasn't pretty. X is probably really messed up after each game. Like, hardly alive. Once the repairs are finally over, X has probably lost all circuits relevant to special weapons, as well as the armor upgrades, simply because they were destroyed in the Sigma fights.

Thoughts?

I was under the impression that most of the armors were non-canon.

They need to make Mega Man 11 where right off the bat you have all the weapons from all previous games, so you could just scroll through pages of weapons for hours on end.

"Out of Metal Blade? Guess I'll switch to the Shadow Blades then..."
"Oh god I used up all of the good shields, all I have left is Leaf Shield!"
"I only have MM5 weapons left? Might as well game over to get the good weapons refilled."

I don't think there's much need to rationalize something that's obviously due to game design, but the idea that the armors are damaged beyond repair is reasonable. X doesn't look too torn up in the endings of the first three games, however, and in the rest of the series, he has multiple armors and doesn't even necessarily fight Sigma. X5 takes the perspective that X beat General while Zero fought Sigma, though of course there's no such thing as canon.

No, I'm pretty sure you made his post incorrect. According to X5, X4 ended with X fighting General while Zero fought Sigma.

When does X5 say that?

Speaking of X5... For the last game of the series, I really feel like X5 is the easiest.

If you wait until The Skiver's totally infected, he'll flip out on X over General's death. As for Zero and Sigma, their conversations in X5 refer back to the one they had before fighting in X4.

I think X2 was the easiest of the games for me.

While I don't know what the explanation for X is, I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same as with the original Mega Man. But, ya, the canonical reason the weapons don't carry over in the original series is because Mega Man doesn't like violence, so he purposely gets rid of the weapons after he no longer needs them.
