So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Mega Man Zero 4 is the final game of the Zero subseries, and we finally get to see these "humans" that the X and Zero series have been talking about constantly. Oh, and Dr. Weil's back. He's still crazy.

Not as much collecting this time: there's only one Cyber-elf! However, there are a lot of head/body/leg chips to create, so get to enemy farming!

Unused Graphics

Exit out of these graphics Two unused buttons that were not translated for the American and European versions. They translate as "Back" and "Close".

Preliminary Final
So very cramped Space is the place

These buttons would have been used on the Elf Menu. They were likely removed because it was easier to just use B to navigate through the menu, and removing them gave room for two more lines of text. There was really no reason to keep them, so out they went.

Regional Differences

Prologue and Credits

The Prologue and Credits music tracks lack vocals in the international versions.

Sprite Changes

Blood Spray

When most enemies are destroyed with a non-Buster weapon in the Japanese version, a viscous crimson goop flies out of them. Like the other games in the series, this was removed from the international versions.

Boss Icon

Japan International
You worthless piece of scrap metal NOTE: Weil is still not Wily

As Dr. Vile's name was changed to Dr. Weil, so too was the icon changed from V to W.

Title Screen

US Europe
Unsurprisingly, the Japanese 4 wasn't used for this. This had to have been a running gag at Capcom by this point.

Yeah, Europe, you got screwed again. It looks even worse against that background art.
