The Misadventures of Tron Bonne is the prequel to Mega Man Legends, starring the Bonne family of pirates as the main characters. When Tron Bonne's older brother Teisel is unable to pay back a sizable loan from greedy financier Lex Loath, he and Bon are captured by Glyde to work for Loath. To repay the debt and save her brothers, Tron and her small henchmen, the Servbots, will have to steal from a city, harbor containers, farm animals, and search ruins for treasure.

Misc

MoTBMission6.png An image from the Mission 6 description, at night.
MoTBMissions.png Early Mission Start and Mission Clear texts?
Ouch Unused expressions from the HUD of stages. These faces are supposed to be used when the player takes minor damage from weak attacks that barely make the Gustaff move, such as bullets and small rocks, but the enemies that appear when playing as Teisel and the Servbot don't use these type of attacks. This image of Teisel's face is actually used when he is hit by the bullets from the first boss (which is used only once when he flies after losing half of his energy), but an error makes it appear in the wrong position. Image of glitch with  Teisel's face appearing in the very upper left.
Graphics stolen by Servbots.
Unused objects from the scene where Servbots steal a house. Two money bags, two food plates, and details from the freezer and basket. The basket detail is supposed to be used when one of the Servbots takes an apple from the basket, as the apple is still present in the basket after it takes it.
MoTBServbotHeads.png
Two unused Servbot heads, one with glasses (for Servbots #30 and #37) and another that seems dizzy.
Lunch Rush!
A thinking balloon with food. A similar balloon was shown above Servbots in early versions of the game.

Unused Items

Although the item menu has space for 126 items, the game actually contains 127 items, with the player being able to obtain only 97 of them. The remaining 30 items are unused.

Regional differences

PocketStation

PocketBot

Although the PocketStation features were removed outside Japan, the Pocket Station menu available in the Gesellschaft's HQ is still present and was translated, suggesting it was initially planned to be available. The Game Shark code 800F241E 0002 makes the menu available (note that using its functions may cause loss of saved game data, so avoid using it with Memory Cards and PocketStations).

Items and Servbot #38

As mentioned above, the items Beauty Book and Cannon were removed outside Japan as they are related to the PocketStation feature. Those items can be given to Servbot #38, who says something about them and unlocks a minigame. The items can be obtained with cheats outside Japan, and their descriptions were translated. When giving them to #38, his dialogue happens normally, but the dialogue boxes are blank.

Servbot #40

"Design" Magazine

In Japan, the "Design Magazine" given to Servbot #40 is an "Adult Magazine", and his skill "Design" is "H". Although the magazine's name was changed, the original sprite was kept. After gaining his skill, #40 will be jumping in Tron's bed, his original dialogue suggesting he is a pervert that is sniffing Tron's odor in her bed, while overseas he appears to be just having fun and thinks the Gesellschaft's colors are bland. Another change he had is that he gives the item Beauty Book in the Japanese version, but again, it is related to the PocketStation and was removed overseas.

Servbot #41

Servbot #41

In Japan, a special save containing Servbot #41 could be obtained from a promotion of the magazine Dengeki G. There is no other way to obtain this Servbot besides cheats, and no promotion was made outside Japan. GameShark code 8009AF0C 0001 unlocks him in the North American version. #41 can be used normally outside Japan and all his quotes were translated.

Credits

The Japanese ending credits has three additional pictures that were removed in overseas versions. Also, the ending theme was changed.
