Here's something interesting: I've heard that everywhere, but I'll say it again. How does a red jewel constitute a SYMBOL?

The red jewel on Sigma's head is just that. A jewel. Maybe it has a purpose, maybe it doesn't. But it's not Sigma's SYMBOL any more than his eye make-up.

Plus, Sigma's jewel doesn't have a pupil, as reaverbot eyes always do.

Seriously, I really think people try to draw that connection way too fast.

EDIT: CORRECTIONS!
--------------------------------------

In fact, I do see what you're saying now. Indeed, from X5 onward Sigma's head crest around the eye was in the system shape (circle with two prongs over and one below), and the eyes do sometimes have pupils!

BUT!

Prior to X5 (especially in X4), we can see that Sigma's symbol had four prongs, or none at all. Besides that, looking at the official artwork for the latest, Maverick Hunter X, the pupil is not present in the jewel.
I would say the connections people like to draw are simply due to either Capcom simply unintentionally reusing elements, using them independent of eachother in fashions that are looked too far into by the fans, or simply Capcom trying to implement a very cheap fanservice later on. I DO NOT THINK this ties Reaverbots to Sigma.

In case you've all forgotten, the whole classic,X,zero,ZX series is completely separate from Legends. This could just be symbol reuse, or a brain teaser.

Supposedly, an official source or something (Rockman Complete Works or some such thing?) says that the timeline goes
Original-X-Zero-ZX-Legends

With EXE and the new one being on an alternate timeline.

When I look at ZX and then look at legends, ZX looks to be more advanced though...
The tech in legends is downgraded about twenty steps, although it would explain why they had to dig in ruins for technology, but there is the flood thing. Damnit, stop contradicting yourself Dranzer!

Well, you have to remember. ZX takes place only a couple centuries after Zero 4. Legends takes place THOUSANDS of years after the X series.

It's scary knowing you have Megaman 3 and 4 robot master references in Legends 2. Skullman and Toadman anyone?
