I've been thinking lately... since they are robots, I was thinking about writing or showing more emphasis that they are robots. Even to maybe limiting even more what they can or cannot do and such. For funzies.

For one thing, would attachments be magnetized and such? If so, would there be shops like clothing shops for humans, only catered to reploids, for things like this? And for bigger things, they probably are capable of interchangeable parts, maybe it's easy to remove and re-install different limbs or parts of a limb?

That could explain why - for example - Alia's chest parts and headpieces change from game to game. Maybe the headset isn't permanently attached to her head, and the bun is just her hair rolled up into a tube? (I actually thought the yellow part was also some kind of material other than folded / rolled synthetic hair.) Also I always had this thing with whenever I RP Vile, sometimes he'd mention a collection of interchangeable heads. Plus, Zero's nice little gift to him in that one RP, rowbutt knows the one. *eyebrows*

Speaking of the kinky crowd, that would mean sexy add-ons or temporary replacements. Come on, Alia's 'boobjob' as well as Layer's in X8 could be an example, even though it's probably just because they felt like looking like that. 

I think they could probably wear human clothes, but what about stuff made specifically for reploids? Also what is that stuff even made of, PVC or some kind of cyber futuristic synthetic leather that is extremely stiff? Look at Cinnamon and Iris' dresses, especially Cinnamon's since she's shown sitting down in official art at one point. Where does that material end and the metal parts begin? Also that stuff is prolly made of space rocks like the metal part.

TL;DR - wouldn't it be cool to emphasize on how robotic reploid bodies are :V

Well, that's what I already do with the radio, the file transfers and the apps :P But yeah, in my Cain's Ward AU, I was thinking that, instead of earrings, reploids have magnetic earcone covers, and those can be pretty fancy. X has a pair or two, in gold or white gold, maybe platinum.

Also, ceratanium/titanium-X is canonically flexible, that's why Cinnamon, Iris and Berkana can sit in their armors.

As far as I know, pre-X8 Alia's hair is canonically rolled up in the back of her head, in a similar way to Anthy Himemiya's. And yeah, following the X6 flashback and X8, his helmet / headpice is completely removable. Nana's in XCM is, too, check the ending cutscene.


Something that is often forgotten is that there is one armor where X does not wear the metal briefs, Shadow Armor: http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/megaman/images/d/dc/X6armorshadow.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20090429225357 Notice how smooth (OHOHOHOHO) his hips are, there's no joint lines like the New Armor at XCM. So, some armor parts are definitely removable.
