I'm from the NES generation, back when gameplay was what counted.

I don't think that they have any weaknesses. The only weapons that damage these 3 (as far as I know) are the Mega Buster and the 3 Special weapons you get from beating them.

The three special stage bosses only take damage from the normal buster + their weakness

Enker > Punk > Ballade > Enker

Punk is by far the easiest to buster. Start with him, then Ballade, then Enker.

I actually had less trouble with Ballade than I did with Punk. I could never predict whether Punk would aim his Screw Crusher high or low. So sometimes when I'm close to him I think he'll aim low, so I jump, only to jump right into a high shot.

funny you should say this, i beat enker and ballade (no e tank) buster only on my first try, yet on my first attempt against punk, he killed me AND i used the e tank.

Punk always throws his blades at the apex of HIS jump. If you're in the air, they'll go over you.

ahh, i never thought to do that. good tip.

ballade is really easy though, so im still not sure id consider punk easier than him, but i would definitely consider him easier than enker now

I think it's actually harder to beat Punk WITH the Mirror Buster than is to just use the standard arm cannon.

My guess is that this is a very, very purposeful design choice.

By positioning Punk and his stage as one of the least difficult in the game, and awarding you with a weapon that basically replaces the buster for anything above or below you, the developers are giving one final leg up to everyone who's still having trouble with the game.

Getting the Screw Crusher makes getting the other special weapons a cinch, and after that playing through the game as Mega Man is infinitely easier. If you still can't progress through the game after this, then games that test reflexes and hand-eye coordination just aren't your forte.

Punk's stage did have those tricky jump between see-saw platforms (if you don't use Rush), and Punk himself does quite a lot of damage with his attacks. So, no, I don't think the designers intentionally made Punk easy.
Knowledge is power, and ignorance is bliss.
Unfortunately, most people won't settle for one; they usually end up with neither.
