==================================================================================================
Well,I've been a fan of the Blue Bomber for a while. I loved his side-
scrolling beat-em-ups,and now he's in a 2-D fighting game combining
fighters from both Capcom and Marvel universes. And Rush even is with
him,cool.
In this FAQ,I'll provide the info you need to hopefully improve your
Mega-Man game. Enjoy!

1.0-Mega Man history and info

Mega Man was one of Capcom earliest characters,not to mention
one of the many side-scrollers out at the time. Mega Man,along
with his trusty K-9 sidekick,Rush,first made his debut on the
Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1987. Here,we were
also introduced to Dr.Light,the creator of Mega Man,his sister
Roll(who appears in the ending),along with the other enemies,
Cutman,Gutsman,Elecman,Iceman,Fireman and Bombman. And we
cannot forget Dr.Wily,who at first teamed up with Dr.Light
to build Mega Man,but somehow turned sinister and decided
he'd rather take over the world with his creations rather
than help it.

As the years went on,and other systems came into development,
Mega Man continued to shine.And each new Mega Man adventure
was better than the last,with improved graphics and adding
gameplay and more characters into the mix every time.
Below,you'll see some of the games and system Mega Man has
appeared on:

6 games on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
Mega Man 1 through 6

5 games on the Super Nes
Mega Man 7
Mega Man X through X3
Mega Man Soccer

5 Game Boy Games
Mega Man I through V

2 Arcade games:
Mega Man: The Power Battles
Mega Man: The Power Fighters

2 Playstation games:
Mega Man 8
Mega Man X4

1 Sega Genesis game:
Mega Man: The Wily Wars

1 Sega GameGear game:
Mega Man: The Best of Mega Man

2 GameBoy Advance games:
MegaMan Battle Network
MegaMan Battle Network 2

Mega Man X4 for the Sony Playstation was my personal favorite.

But,it wasn't until early 1998,that the great Capcom decided
to put the Blue Bomber in a whole new type of game,completley
different from the side-scrolling games. He was to be ported
into a cross-over fighting game.

This game came to be known as Marvel vs Capcom. Mega Man fans
finally got to treat themselves to see the Blue Bomber in a
2-D fighting game,with a small mesh of other Capcom and Marvel
characters. And yes,Rush was right there by his side!

This game also had a hidden character,Roll,Mega Man's sister,
who also had appeared for the first time in a 2-D fighting game.
Although Roll was of course relatively weaker than Mega-Man,
she added some fun to the small cast. Actually,I think Capcom
meant to make her a joke character.

In the year 2000,Capcom's finest year so far,Capcom brought
us the great Marvel vs Capcom 2. Mega Man was still the same,
as was Roll. Except for the fact they got more colors in their
palette,and meshed with even MORE characters,both new and old,
from the Capcom and Marvel universe. This game boasted a total
of 56 characters. Capcom's highest character select to date so far.

And to this day,Mega Man still continues to entertain us. And
now,for the FAQ.

3.0-Moves List

MEGA BUSTER-(when grounded or airborne)Hold Hard Punch,then release,
Mega Man summons up energy,and when ready,shoots a powerful shot
out at the opponent. Note that the longer you hold it,the
heavier the damage and the more hits it has.

MEGA UPPERCUT-F,D,DF+P
Mega Man takes the traditional shoryuken uppercut and addes
his own flare to it,emitting a blue aura of energy as he does it.

USE ITEM-D,DF,F+P
epending on which item you have(Tornado Hold,Leaf Shield or Mega Ball)
Mega Man shoots them out of his booster arm and fires them like
a projectile.

GET ITEM(TORNADO HOLD)-D,DF,F+K
Mega summons his robot friend into the fight to deliver
the Tornado Hold. This fires a small tornado that has
good juggling priorities.

GET ITEM(LEAF SHIELD)-D,DF,F+K
Mega man summons his robot friend into the fight to deliver
the Leaf Shield. Note that when you first fire the leaf
shield,that it will surrround you. If the opponent hits
you,the leaves will dissappear. If you fire it,it'll shoot
out just like a regular projectile,hitting several times.

GET ITEM(MEGA BALL)-D,DF,F+K

the projectiles are some of his friends,including Rush.

You can steer Forward and backward. You can also
jump a bit.

BEAT PLANE-D,DB,B+two kicks

=================================================================================================
4.0-How to use Mega Man effectively

First off,is MegaMan for you? Well,if you're the kind of player that's 
looking
for speed and power,Mega Man isn't really your type. Mega Man's more of a
defensive player. But,if played right,and with a bit of practice and 
patience,
Mega Man can deal his fair share of damage,and he can be quite fast during
combos.

Mega Man,unfortunatley,has plenty of vulnerablities,when performing a couple
of moves. Mostly the Get Item moves. Although it's easy to accidentally
perform the command.

Use Mega's Tornado Hold when necessary. This move deals good block damage.
And can score for some good combos.

Out of all Mega's supers,naturally,the Hyper Mega Man is your best asset.
If the opponents tries to jump in when Mega Man performs this,they'll be
knocked back when Mega Man grows,and will be hit with the beam and various
projectiles.

The Rush Drill,another handy Mega Man super,can deal good block damage.
And you can steer the Rush Drill as well.

The Mega Buster can deal some sick damage when worked in with a combo.
For best results,hold the Hard Punch button,juggle your opponent in the
air with Mega Man's launcher,DF+Hark Kick,do a kick chain combo(just
short and forward)then let go of the Hard Punch. Depending on how
long you've held down the Hard Punch button,you'll get plenty of hits
and good damage.


=================================================================================================
5.0-Recommended teams

Here,I'll explain some teams that I've gotten good results with when playing 
with
Mega Man. I'll also explain a bit on how each character aids Mega Man and on 
their
own as well. The following teams work best with Mega Man.
*************
TEAM #1:
Cammy
Mega-Man
Venom

All together-Together,this team can inflict pretty good damage. Pick the 
anti-air
assist for Cammy,and the Expansion Assist for Venom. When doing the team 
super,
Cammy will do a Spin Dive Smasher and Venom will do a Death Bite. Along with 
Mega
Man's Hyper Mega Man super,Cammy and Mega Man add the damage,and Venom adds 
the
extra juggles with the Death Bite.

Cammy-Cammy is a fast character,and can hold her own against most opponents.
Cammy is her best when close. And she is both offensive/defensive. Combined
with her speed and agility,Cammy can quickly take out her opponent. Use
her low kick chain combo(Short,Forward,Roundhouse)when you see an 
opportunity.

Venom-Venom is the juggler that this teams needs. This guy's pretty strong
and can deal both good regular and blocking damage with the versatile
Venom Fang. Try not to use his Venom Rush too much,as it has some delay
after performing it. His Venom Web is a great super as well,if done
and timed just right.

*****************
TEAM #2:
Captain Commando
Mega Man
Felicia

All together-This team Mega Man works really well with this team. Probably
his best one. Although together,during the team-up super,they don't deal
much power. Speed is what Captain Commando and Felicia bring to this team.
For Mega Man,pick his Balance assist,Captain Commando,his anti-air assist,
and for Felicia,her Ground Type assist. For the team-up super,Mega will
do the Hyper Mega Man,while Captain Commando does the Captain Sword super,
and Felicia does her Super Sand Splash. This counters good with both
air(except the super jumpers,naturally)and the ground,dealing good block 
damage,
especially with Mega Man's and Felicia's supers.

Captain Commando-This guy has both speed and power on his side. All his
attacks are cheap and deal pretty good damage. For good results,use
his Captain Corridor(D,DB,B+P) often.

Felicia-Felicia's the defensive type. But she's got plenty of speed.
And her chain combos are good,too. Use the Sand Splash often,but not
to often. Try not to use her Rolling Buckler too much,as she's vulnerable
when performing it.
