                                   Forewords                             [be01]
===============================================================================

Greetings! I'm snkupo, and I'm going to try being your best friend while you're
playing through MegaMan ZX Advent on the Nintendo DS. It's been quite some time
since last time I wrote a guide for a game, so please have me excused if I give
a slightly rusty impression now and then. I'll try not to, but we're in for
quite a ride here, as this is a pretty huge game. The most interesting part of
this guide is most likely the main walkthrough, which contains information on
how to get through every single level in the game, and how to survive those
hyperactive, super-crazy boss fights you always seem to run into in MegaMan
games. The main walkthrough also contains a ton of information related to items
and hidden datadisks that you can find while playing through the game.

If you're familiar with my older MegaMan ZX and Castlevania guides, you already
know that I usually include optional items in the main walkthrough itself,
providing checklists that you can use to keep and overview of items you have
found and still need to find. In this case, I've chosen to list all of the
datadisks in the main walkthrough. When it comes to items you get from doing
sidequests, you should look at the sidequests section.

Listing the datadisks' location on the go might seem like just a small detail
for some people, but by listing these disks in the main walkthrough (in
addition to their own dedicated sections), you can actually find them without
having to look them up AFTER you've played through the game. Just like when
you're eating huge meals, getting as much as possible, as fast as possible is
the best! Ouch, that didn't come out quite right, but you get the idea, I hope!
Please do also note that this is a general guide, and not an in-depth one.
There are several sides to ZX Advent that quite simply are out of this guide's
scope, such as taking down every boss in the game without getting hit. I'm
putting together a general walkthrough for the normal difficulty setting. Not
more, but certainly not less either.

So, ZX Advent is all about exploration, collecting cool items from mad places,
and fighting it out in lightning fast 2D shooting battles. We all know that
many games in this genre are good as pink ice candy (yum!), but what about the
storyline? Why are we fighting this time around? Just like in the first ZX game
(go play it, it's a nice experience), the main characters are pretty much
thrown into the action against their will, but what has been going on before
you start playing? I'll try and get into that right away -- just for you!

The MegaMan ZX series is the "current" series in the long-running Capcom
franchise, continuing after MegaMan X on SNES/PSX/PS2/Saturn/PC (gaah!) and
MegaMan Zero on the GameBoy Advance. Humans and Reploids live in peace, a
situation that is being maintained by the government coalition named "Legion".
However, Mavericks are still around to a certain degree, hiding in ruins and
industry complexes, giving anyone they run into a damn hard time. At the same
time, there's lots of valuable goods in these ruins. Naturally, people and
Reploids are after these valuables. The whole storyline of ZX Advent revolves
around such a valuable -- it starts off with a "Biometal" that allows certain
persons to "Megamerge" into brand new forms. Of course, YOU are able to do
that. In other words, you'll get new abilities and flashy looks! The rest of
the storyline will unfold as you play, so start mashing those buttons soon.

It's also worth to mention that you get to choose between two characters in
this game. The bounty hunter girl named Ashe, and the mysterious Reploid Grey.
While the main storyline is the same no matter who you pick, some dialog is
unique for the character you're playing as. The same goes for the very first
level of the game. Also, just like in the first ZX game, there are some small
differences in recoil and buster shots. It's not enough to give the game a lot
of replay value though, but at least the creators put it in there.

As always when writing guides as huge as this one, I'm bound to miss something
that should indeed have been covered. Because of this, I hope you'll be a nice
reader and mail me about it if you spot something! That would be great, and it
would get your name (or nickname) into the Credits section! It would also give
me a great impression of you, and that makes the effort ABSOLUTELY worth it ;)
I don't bite or anything either, I think I'm quite nice. With all that being
said, I want to thank INTI for putting ZX Advent together. I also hope that
you'll find my work useful, even though I'm not covering a brand new game or
anything. So, find some ice candy, and start playing now! Pink ice candy.

                            Gameplay Basics & Hints                      [be03]
===============================================================================

- BIOMETAL & MEGAMERGING: Just like in the first MegaMan ZX game, "Megamerging"
  is important in ZX Advent. When you defeat a boss in the game, the thumb rule
  is that you'll gain a new form. You can transform into these new forms, and
  once you do, you gain new abilities. Most special abilities are unique to one
  form. While you could only Megamerge into new "Biometal" forms in the first
  ZX, you're also able to Megamerge (or use so-called "A-Trans") into forms
  that look exactly like the Pseudoroid bosses found in the game. The first
  example of such a form can be seen after defeating the Pseudoroid boss named
  Buckfire in one of the game's earliest stages. In order to find certain
  hidden areas, or even continue at certain parts of the main game, you will
  need to use these forms' abilities. For a list of abilities, press the START
  button, and hit L or R until you reach the "Profiles" screen. Transforming
  into a new form doesn't cost anything -- you can do it without worrying.

- ATTACKS: As mentioned above, the various Biometal Models have different
  abilities, but one thing most of them have in common, is that they provide
  you with a charge attack, and a standard quick attack. Charge attacks are
  pulled off by holding one of the two attack buttons, then releasing it after
  your character has started flashing. Quick attacks are pulled off by simply
  tapping one of the attack buttons. Some Models have two different weapons,
  or two ways to attack with the same weapon - that's why the developers gave
  you two attack buttons instead of one. Naturally, charged attacks are usually
  stronger than quick attacks.

- ELEMENTS: Many forms that you will gain in the game have certain elements
  tied to them. The same goes for your bosses, and even normal enemies. They're
  all weak to certain elements, and strong towards others. Just like in
  Pokemon. And you've played a fair share of Pokemon adventures, haven't you?
  During boss battles, using the most effective element against the foe you're
  fighting can often make the battle much easier. Here's how the elemental
  system works. Strong element first -> weak element after.

  Fire -> Ice
  Ice -> Electric
  Electric -> Fire

- TRANSERVERS: The Transervers are terminals that are located at various
  places. Usually, you'll find them at the end of a stage. By activating a
  Transerver, you can save your game, or transport to a Warp Point that you
  have activated earlier. You also have to go and activate a Transerver once
  you've completed a mission/taken down a boss. Doing so will usually result in
  you receiving a reward, and being able to proceed with the main game. To
  activate a Transerver, stand in front of it and press UP on the d-pad.

- SUBTANKS: Having been part of a ton of earlier MegaMan games, SubTanks return
  in ZX Advent. There's four of them in this game, and all of them are hidden
  pretty well. Once you have a SubTank, you will be able to store extra energy
  in them, and refill your main energy gauge using this energy when you need
  it. Any energy that you collect while your main energy gauge is filled, will
  get stored in your SubTanks. Once you need to use the energy in your
  SubTanks, access the pause menu and select one of the filled SubTanks. I've
  included a SubTanks section in this document, where you can find out where to
  get every single one of them. Make sure to collect them all! Note that you
  can only find one single SubTank if playing on the hard difficulty setting.

- LIFE UP: Life Up items aren't all that different from SubTanks, but instead
  of letting you store energy, they will boost the capability of your main
  energy gauge. In other words, when collecting a Life Up item, your energy
  gauge will get bigger. Take a look at the Life Up section for locations.

- BIOMETAL UPGRADES: In addition to your energy gauge, you have a Biometal
  Gauge. The Biometal Gauge's energy is used when you pull off special attacks
  while being merged into a Biometal form, such as Model A. The energy will
  automatically get charged up again over time. However, you can extend this
  gauge, just like you can extend the main energy gauge by collecting Life Up
  items. To extend the Biometal Gauge, you must collect Biometal Upgrades!
  Their locations are listed in a section dedicated to the subject.

- DATADISKS: The datadisks found in the game contain information about bosses,
  friendly characters, and even real-life objects! They don't serve any other
  purpose than to provide you with interesting information, and are completely
  optional to search for. Once you find a datadisk, you can analyze it by going
  to "building 02" in the Hunter's Camp 1 area. I've included the location of
  all datadisks in the main walkthrough. If you're looking for the location of
  a specific disk, just search for the disk number using CTRL + F.

- E-CRYSTALS: E-crystals are the currency in MegaMan ZX Advent. They're used to
  buy certain items in shops, and sometimes, you'll need them in order to make
  progress during sidequests. You'll find crystals in stages, and you'll be
  rewarded with crystals when you complete a mission. Sometimes, enemies you
  kill will drop E-crystals as well. You can't ever get enough of them!

- SPLITTING ITEMS: When you find big items, such as huge E-crystal containers,
  energy packs and similar things while playing, you can try attacking the
  item with a saber attack (such as Mode ZX's saber) to split the item. It will
  turn into several smaller items, usually some small energy packs, and some
  small E-crystal containers. Variety can be good, so try it out.

                          Frequently Asked Questions                     [be04]
===============================================================================

Q: I heard there is a secret ending in this game! How can I watch it?
A: Complete the game on the hard difficulty setting, then wait until after the
   credits have rolled. In order to unlock hard difficulty, complete the game
   once while playing on the normal difficulty setting.

Q: Is this a direct sequel to the first MegaMan ZX game?
A: The main characters are new, but it takes place in the same world.

Q: I did not like the first ZX a lot. Is this game any better, or different?
A: It's more of the same, with a few improvements such as a better map. If you
   hated the original, you would probably want to stay away from this sequel.

Q: How do I unlock the Expert difficulty setting?
A: Complete the main game on the Normal setting.

Q: I love/hate you and this guide. What should I do about that!?
A: Mail me or something, I love chatting >:)

Q: I've got some information I think should be added/corrected.
A: Please mail me about it. Credit will be given where it's due.

Q: Gosh! I can't beat a boss, but I am actually following your guide! Halp!
A: ZX Advent relies on your reflexes a lot, and if those are too slow, you are
   going down, no matter what strategy you use. My best advice is to get and
   fill as many SubTanks as possible before going into a boss battle. Also,
   collect as many Life Ups as possible as well! Godspeed, my friend.

Q: Hunters and Raiders.. What is the difference between them?
A: They both hunt for valuables. The Hunters are "legal" according to the
   government, while the Raiders are not. Two different groups.

Q: You're saying "Megamerge" when you should say "A-Trans" in this guide!
A: Yes, I am aware of this. It's just what I'm like. Don't be mean.

Q: Is there a way to extend Model F's "Buster Edit" feature with more squares?
A: Yes, collect the Biometal upgrades.

Q: Is there no such thing as repairing Biometal models in this game?
A: Correct. Also, your Biometal models won't get damaged no matter what.

Q: How do I crawl into narrow passages?
A: Transform back to human/Reploid form!

Q: How do I reach Legion HQ 4?
A: Find the first air surfing board in Legion HQ 2, and step on it while in
   Bifrost form. The board will fall down and reveal the entrance to HQ 4.

Q: How do I unlock the "Model a" and "Quiz Advent" mini games?
A: Complete the game on Normal difficulty.

Q: What about the "Gem Buster" mini game? How do I get it?
A: Just speak to Julian in Hunter's Camp 2. He'll give it to you.

Q: Where do I find a specific item/datadisk?
A: Use the search function (CTRL + F in most apps) and search for either the
   item/disk name, or part of the name.

Q: What is the "booster" item used for?
A: It gives you a speed boost during the Highway Race sidequest!

--- RAIDER PURSUIT ------------------------------------------------------------

Hello! It's great that you made it down here to the main walkthrough. I'm
covering the game while playing on the normal difficulty setting, but that
doesn't mean you're not allowed to read if you're playing on another setting.
Depending on what character you choose to play as, you'll start out in either
an abandoned lab, or a level that takes place ontop of several flying
aircrafts. Grey is the lab-rat, while Ashe takes her action up to the clouds.
There are no hidden items to find in the very first level, and the enemies you
meet are a true pushover. In other words, no matter what character you choose,
the first level is all about going from left towards right, until you meet a
mini boss. The boss is the same for both Ashe and Grey. As you might have
guessed already, I'm telling you this because I won't play as both characters
while putting this document together. I like Ashe, so that's who I play as.

Aside from the first level (which is a walk in the park, no hidden items) and
some dialog, the game is the same for both characters, if you look away from
minor differences in recoil and shots you fire. I think I've told you about
this so many times that you're starting to get tired of me, so let us continue
now -- we're here to play a game, after all, aren't we?

The first thing you'll get to see is a lobby, where some weird persons are
standing, talking to each other about a mission they're carrying out for the
government organization "Legion". They're searching some ruins for a precious
item! Hunters like these guys do most stuff, as long as they get an income out
of it. The item they're looking for is a so-called "Biometal". You know all
about those if you're familiar with the ZX series. If not, you're in for a nice
surprise later on. Anyway, the Hunters want to find the Biometal before their
companion Ashe does. Unfortunately for them, Ashe has already gotten into the
right mood, and jumps off the Hunter aircraft, into free fall! Seems like our
favorite girl is about to earn herself a bonus on her Hunter paycheck!

Now that Ashe has landed on an aircraft below the one she jumped off, you're
in control. There's some dumb Mavericks running around here, but they won't be
able to touch someone like you! Start running right. Once you've passed the
chain that is linking the current aircraft onto another one, you'll run into
the first Maverick. Shoot him with your buster (Y button!) and proceed right.
Grab the energy pack ontop of the roof in front of you, then hop onto the blue
moving platform. Continue right, taking down any Mavericks you see, and jumping
onto the blue platforms you run into. There really isn't anything else to do
here in this level, it's actually quite boring. For me too, that is. After
thirty seconds of running and jumping, it's time for a boss battle. Ready!?

 |  - General Info: This boss might look a little scary, but he's pretty    |
 |    easy to take care of. Firstly, there is one platform in the middle    |
 |    of the area, but you won't be able to shoot at his eyes from here,    |
 |    and the eyes are the boss's only weak point. So, jump onto his left   |
 |    or right hand, and shoot at his eyes from there! You don't have any   |
 |    flashy weapons or anything yet, so concentrate on shooting many       |

 |  - Laser Look: Both of the boss's eyes start flashing, then two laser    |
 |    beams will shoot out! To avoid the beams, just wait on the platform   |
 |    in the middle of the area. Once the beams are gone, quickly jump onto |
 |    one of the two hands, since you'll be hit by some yucky stones        |
 |    being spit at you, if you stay at the middle platform.                |

 |  - Hand Crush: If you're standing on one boss hand and the other hand    |
 |    suddenly flies upwards, off the screen, hop down onto the middle      |
 |    platform. This way, you'll avoid being crushed by the moving hand     |
 |    that will come dropping down onto the hand you were standing on.      |

Wow, you really kicked some butt there! But even so, you won't have that much
luck in the upcoming cut-scene. Watch Ashe as she meets Prometheus, and cry
when he takes her down. Everything goes black... did Ashe die? Did she!?

--- HUNTER'S CAMP -------------------------------------------------------------

 o----------------------------o   I  have something  sad that  I  need  to tell
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   you.. Ashe..  Ashe, she..  She  survived! Got
 |                            |   you there, eh? I'm evil  like Wily! Anyway, a
 | Hunter's License......[  ] |   Hunter  named Nicol  comes and wakes Ashe up,
 |                            |   after she's  been sleeping  in  a clinic-like
 o----------------------------o   building. Nicol says  that the  Hunters  that
                                  live in this camp saved  Ashe, and managed to
retrieve the  Biometal that  Ashe was  looking for  before being  taken down by
Prometheus. That's good,  isn't it? Now  the Hunters are  planning to take  the
Biometal to the government  coalition Legion, and they're  going to use an  old
train to do it!  Nicol says that Ashe  should try saving her  progress, then he
leaves the room. I bet you're  interested in having a look around  the camp, so
go outside now. Yes, outside NOW!

As  you can  see once  you're  outside,  the numbers  "03" are  painted on  the
building you've been sleeping in. Go left from building 03 and talk to the girl
there. She's named Anna, and is some  kind of nurse! She can't do anything  for
you now though, but  seeing her sure was  nice. Enter the building  behind her,
which  is building  02. In  here, you'll  meet a  man named  Gary. Once  you've
collected some datadisks (you'll  do that later on)  you can come back  here to
have the information inside  them analyzed. In the  first ZX game, there  was a
system like this as  well, and the man  running it was named  Fleuve. Remember?
Analyzing  datadisks will  give you  some cool  sprites to  look at,  and  cool
background information on a lot  of different enemies. Pretty nice  feature. Go
outside again now, as you don't have any disks to analyze. If you want to,  you
can continue left to building 01, which is  a bar. Talk to the three  people in
there, then sprint outside again.

Once you've talked  to everyone, you  should go back  to building 01,  and from
there go right to find building 04. Open the door and step inside, dear reader.
This is what we call a Transerver room. In here, you can save your game, accept
new missions that  have been unlocked,  and transport to  warp points that  you
have activated at various places. Transervers  are also used to report back  to
HQ once  you've completed  a mission.  Step onto  the Transerver  and press UP.
You'll receive a nice and flashy [Hunter' License]! Great, now you're certified
to leave the camp, accept missions and more. A real hunter, once again!

After  getting  the license,  select  the "Data  Management"  options from  the
Transerver menu. Save  your progress. Now  that you've saved,  go speak to  the
girl standing near the Transerver room exit. She explains how Warp Points (like
the  device behind  her) work.  When you  see an  orange Warp  Point, you   can
activate it if you've got enough E-crystals. When playing on Normal, activating
a Warp Point costs  100 crystals.  Not too  bad, really. Once   activated,  you
can warp to any Warp Point using a  Transerver. Now that you have the  license,
you can go to  the left end of  the Hunter's Camp in  order to find the  Hunter
Pierre and the digging hunter Kidd. Kidd says  that he want a donation so  that
he  can  keep on  digging  for something  valuable,  but you  don't  have those
crystals  yet. Later on, you'll  be able to  get a SubTank  from him. This   is
covered in  the Sidequests section. Now go back to the Transerver entrance, but
head right instead, opening the gate there to Reach the Hunter's Camp 2 area.

--- HUNTER'S CAMP 2 -----------------------------------------------------------

Normally when starting on a new mission, you have to pick it and confirm it in
a Transerver, but since you're not really into the game yet, this second
mission got started automatically for you by the game. No worries, though. Go a
little bit right to meet Jarke. He says that you should proceed further right
if you want to head towards Legion. Well, follow his advice and enter the door
just behind him. You'll arrive in the Train 1 area.

--- TRAIN 1 -------------------------------------------------------------------

There's a Warp  Point near the  entrance. Most   o----------------------------o
likely, you don't have the crystals needed  to   | ITEM CHECKLIST             |
activate it  just yet,  poor as  you are.  So,   |                            |
continue running  right, opening  the gate  in   | Biometal Model A......[  ] |
front of you. Run down the stairs, ignore  the   |                            |
reception  room  if you  don't  like pointless   o----------------------------o
chats  (I  like  them!),  and  just   continue
running  right in  order to reach the train. It's about to leave  right now, so
get  your  small body on it  now, before it  leaves! You don't  want to be left
alone here at  the station, you  know. It's pretty lonely  here. No fun at all.
The hunter Billy is waiting for Ashe on the train, and he sure likes to chat.
When the train starts moving, Ashe tells Billy about her sad past, and then,
some seconds later, everything goes BOOM! Mavericks attack the train, and true
hell breaks loose! Prometheus is here as well, and he is NOT happy.

To make it even worse, he's brought his "friend" Pandora with him as well. Ashe
is lucky though, as the Biometal stored in the crate behind her breaks out, and
Megamerges with her! Crazy stuff! So much is happening at once! Now you're a
MegaMan, controlling [Biometal Model A]! Prometheus and Pandora get so scared
that they escape right away! Allright, are we mighty powerful, or what? Just
kidding, we're weak. Anyway, now you can change between Human and Model A form
by pressing the X button. Needless to say, you'll want to stay in Model A form
for the moment, as everyone knows Humans are weak creatures. Note that your
buster is now more powerful, and can be charged! In addition, by holding the R
button, you can use a homing shot ability by holding the R button. Try it out
once you meet some enemies. You can read about all the new moves by accessing
the pause menu and pressing R/L until you reach the Profile screen.

Start running right along the train, and watch out for enemies, especially the
purple Galleons with rocket launchers. Avoid their rockets, then shoot them.
When you see some flower-like machines dropping bombs down from above, use the
homing attack to take care of them. Once you've done that, open the gate in the
right end of the area. Take the energy pack on the floor, and proceed right.

 o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o

If you look above you after entering this area, there is a datadisk on a ledge.
However, you can't jump all the way up there just yet, so continue making your
way right instead. We'll get the disk later on -- I'll remind you! The
Pseudoroid boss Buckfire is waiting for you just ahead. He's a hot creature,
and is really angry at Model A for choosing Ashe. Buckfire breaks the roof on
the train wagon he's standing on, and prepares for battle! We're READY TOO!!

 |                                                                           |

 |  - General Info: At the beginning of the battle, Buckfire will break      |
 |    the roof he is standing on by crashing into it. He might also shoot    |
 |    arrows at you. Quickly dash under the arrows if he shoots them,        |
 |    and at the same time avoid being hit by his crash into the roof.       |
 |    The battle itself is easiest to fight down inside the wagon.           |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Fire Arrows: Buckfire shoots three burning arrows towards you.         |
 |    Be quick and dash under them. Dash TOWARDS the arrows, not away from   |
 |    them. You don't want to become roastbeef!                              |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Twin Boomerang: Two boomerangs are thrown into the air. Stand close    |
 |    to Buckfire at first, then quickly do a jump when the boomerangs       |
 |    move back towards Buckfire. Don't jump too early!                      |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Ground Crash: Buckfire jumps up, then crashes down into the ground     |
 |    in a diagonal motion. Just dash away from him when this happens.       |
 |    Of course it would be dangerous to stand above him on one of the       |
 |    top edges, but you should be down at the ground, not up there.         |
 |                                                                           |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+

Bam! Buckfire blew up! After the battle, you'll receive the [Buckfire DNA],
which is similar to when you receive new Biometal models. Try it out -- press
the X button and choose Buckfire from the Biometal menu. As you can see, you
are now able to transform into a creature that looks exactly like Buckfire, and
has the very same abilities, such as jumping high up into the air. Biometal
Model A tells you to try out two of Buckfire's moves, so let us do that now.
First, hold the Y button while jumping, the release it while you're in the air
to do a downwards tackle. Use this tackle move to break the metal block that's
found on the floor in the middle of the train wagon.

After breaking that block, it's time  to   o----------- Optional ------------o
break  the  ledge hanging  in  the upper   |                                 |
left end of the wagon. To do so, hold UP   | - Type: Datadisk                |
and Y while  standing below that  ledge.   |                                 |
Now  release  the  Y  button  to   crash   | Head back to  the Train 2  area |
upwards  into the  ledge, shattering  it   | where you killed Buckfire.  Use |
into thousand pieces. Great job. If  you   | your Buckfire DNA to jump up on |
forget about  these moves,  just have  a   | the ledge  in the  left end  of |
look  at   the  Profiles   screen  after   | the area. Up here you will find |
pausing the game.  Now hit the  X button   | [Datadisk B10].  If  you   have |
and  transform  back into  your  Model A   | trouble getting  up there,  use |
form. Ashe  and Model  A now  go back to   | Buckfire to jump onto the wall, |
the Hunter Camp by themselves. In  other   | then Megamerge into Model A  to |
words,   they  go   without  you  having   | jump up to the top.             |
to do anything at all. Back in the Hunter  |                                 |
Camp, you  should  enter the  Transerver   o---------------------------------o
room  where you saved your game and got
the  Hunter's  License  earlier. Access the Transerver  menu  to save your game
and  report to  Legion about  the mission  you just went through on  the train.
The  reward  for  completing the  mission is a decent  amount, 200  E-crystals.

But, what is this? The moment after you got the crystals, three weird men
popped up on the screen! They're the Sage Trinity, three wise men that control
Legion. Very, very mysterious-looking too, every single one of them. Their
names are Thomas, Mikhail and Albert. The Sage Trinity has received word that
the Mavericks are after the Biometal (Model A) that Ashe is carrying, and now
they want you to bring it to Legion as quickly as possible. You don't have a
choice here, so just accept the [Red Card Key] from Albert and be happy about
it! Your task now is to find an old, crashed plane and get some parts from it,
so that you can repair the train and try driving it to Legion once again.

===============================================================================

--- HUNTER'S CAMP -------------------------------------------------------------

After accepting the mission named "To The Crash Site", go outside of the
Transerver building, and head left until you reach Hunter's Camp 1, where
Pierre is standing. While being Megamerged into Model A, wall-jump upwards on
the gate just right of Pierre. You'll be able to hop onto a roof where the
Hunter George is standing. He's watching over [Datadisk B06] up here. So, grab
that disk right now! The next thing you should do is to backtrack towards the
right. Keep running in that direction until you're back in Hunter's Camp 2.

--- HUNTER'S CAMP 2 -----------------------------------------------------------

 o----------------------------o   At the very entrance, merge into Buckfire and
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   jump up to the ledge just above you to find
 |                            |   [Datadisk O05]. Now, right of that datadisk,
 | Datadisk O05..........[  ] |   close to the Hunter named Jarke, there is a
 | Gem Buster............[  ] |   ledge that you can jump up to. It's just a
 |                            |   small one, but as a tiny human, you couldn't
 o----------------------------o   get up there earlier! At the top, head right
                                  past a fat Hunter, and climb up the ladder.
Speak to Julian up here to get the [Gem Buster] mini-game. You'll be able to
access it from the main menu after turning on MegaMan ZX Advent, if you just
save your progress first. Now open up the red door located just left of Julian
himself. That's why you got the Red Card Key earlier! It wasn't useless after
all! It actually lead to a brand new area -- Hunter's Camp 3! What are you
waiting for? Get in there now!

--- HUNTER'S CAMP 3 -----------------------------------------------------------

There's not a lot to do in this area. Speak to   o----------------------------o
Owl, the eating Hunter,  then go to the  upper   | ITEM CHECKLIST             |
right  end  to find  Warren  and his  daughter   |                            |
Blossom. Run right  past them, and  speak with   | F. Range Key..........[  ] |
Richard. After talking to him once, a "!" sign   |                            |
appears above  his head.  If you  talk to  him   o----------------------------o
again,  he  gives  you  a  [F. Range Key]  and
challenges  you  to  beat  his  record  in the shooting range. Enter the Firing
range found just behind him. Yeah, the door behind him, that is.

The goal here is to take out at least 100 enemies before the time runs out. It
might take a couple of tries, but in the end, it's actually quite easy to pull
off. Start by shooting enemies using normal buster shots as soon as they enter
the screen. Then, once the enemies appear more frequently, start using the
homing attack, taking down several enemies per shot! It's all about technique,
you see. Once you've beat the record of 100 enemies, talk to Richard again to
get 100 E-crystals. Do note that the F. Range Key will vanish from your
inventory after seeing Richard again. And, that's good! No more scrap for us!

Being 100 crystals richer, proceed right from where Richard (haha, he isn't
RICH anymore now, is he?) is standing. Activate the Warp Point in here, then
continue right, opening the gate in front of you. Welcome to the next level.

--- TOWER OF VERDURE 1 --------------------------------------------------------

 o----------------------------o   You'll find yourself in a corridor. Watch out
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   for the tentacles that come popping out of
 |                            |   the background when you go near their hiding
 | Datadisk E29..........[  ] |   places. Take them out using homing shots, and
 |                            |   shoot at the walls that are blocking your way
 o----------------------------o   in order to break 'em. In the right end,
                                  there is a gate leading into a new room. The
alarm ticks off in here, you can't avoid it no matter what you do. The enemies
now know you're here, and I'm sure they're thirsty for some trespasser blood.
As expected, the exits get sealed, so you can't go back! You don't know what to
do, but don't worry! Albert gives you a call, and tells you to deactivate the
security system using a supercomputer in the upper part of the tower. Ok, we're
going to do that right away. For you, Mister Albert!

Start moving upwards by jumping onto the vine that grows in the middle of the
room. Take out the small circle-formed enemy on the path, and don't let
yourself be fooled by the purple object that looks like a pack of energy, since
it really is an enemy. A little further up you'll find two E-crystal packs on a
ledge close to the right wall, so dash-jump up to get them, just don't touch
the spikes that are set out near them. Now proceed upwards and open the first
door you see. You'll find yourself in a room with a beetle that keeps moving on
a green platform. Take the beetle down and jump over to the right end of the
room to find [Datadisk E29]. Now go back to the previous room.

Make sure to still watch out for spikes, as there are several scattered around,
and make your way to the top. You'll probably spot the datadisk outside of the
left wall, but to get it, you'll need new the DNA of the boss in this level.
We'll come back here once we have it -- I promise. Anyway, at the very top,
there is a hole in the ceiling that you can reach using Buckfire's charging
jump. Do so to get a huge energy pack, then exit the room in the right end to
find yet another Warp Point. Proceed right for a rather quick boss battle.

 |  - General Info: This monster is a spider that comes crawling from above. |
 |    As you can see, there are some weird colors on the spider's feet,      |
 |    and the same colors appear on the blocks that you are standing on.     |
 |    What could that possible mean? Well, have a read below.. Please!       |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Color STOMP: When the boss starts moving one of its feet, look at      |
 |    what color that foot is, then get away from the block with the same    |
 |    color. The boss will STOMP it's foot down into the block of the same   |
 |    color as it foot, and you don't want to get squashed.                  |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Spinning Feet: All of his feet start spinning around. Stand close to   |
 |    his face, then jump straight upwards each time a spinning foot gets    |
 |    uncomfortably close to you.                                            |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Small Spiders: Lots of small insects are throw out of their poppy's    |
 |    body. Use your homing shot to take them all out once they hit the      |
 |    ground. Incredibly easy, to be honest.                                 |

Once you've achieved glorious victory against the spider boss, exit right to
find another Warp Point. Activate it if you've got the crystals for it. You
should have, if you've been collecting enemy drops. Afterwards, run right into
yet another new room. I Hope you're not tired of Verdure's Tower yet.

again, and  keep doing  so until you hit

gate, just  like the one you  might have seen before fighting Buckfire  at the
train earlier. You know what that means -- Crazy boss bashing!

 o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o

After opening that gate, you'll find a  Warp Point and a weird, green creature
that seems to be tormenting a Raider that's hiding in the left end of the room.
Brave as you are, you're the only one here that has the guts to fight this guy
off. So, let's start the action now -- the green creature is more than willing
to fight you, so there's nothing wrong with getting excited here.

 | Elemental weakness: Ice                                                   |
 | Weak point: ---                                                           |
 |                                                                           |
 | - General Info: Rospark is a weird Pseudoroid. He can't walk very         |
 |   quickly, so instead, he climbs on the poles hanging on the wall. You    |
 |   can easily move below him by dashing at most times. Use Model A's       |
 |   charged buster shot in order to damage him. Do also note that it's      |
 |   usually best to stay in one of the corners of the room, so that you     |
 |   can get at least half a second of reaction time when Rospark shoots     |
 |   at you with his spike attack.                                           |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Spike: Rospark shoots several small spikes towards you. Wall-jump in    |
 |   the lower left or right corner in order to avoid the spikes. You should |
 |   be able to place yourself between the lowest spike and the one above    |
 |   by using this method. You can also just dash below him to get behind    |
 |   him, so that he can't hit you.                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Thunder Spike: Similar to the Spike attack, but this time, Rospark      |
 |   shoots three spikes charged with electric energy. The spikes hit the    |
 |   wall, and will make it dangerous to touch the wall for some seconds.    |
 |   So, after dodging the same way as with the normal Spike attack, stay    |
 |   away from the electric wall until you can see that the electric         |
 |   energy has vanished.                                                    |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Mad Charge Beam: Rospark starts charging electric energy into his own   |
 |   body, flashing like mad for a couple of seconds. When he does this,     |
 |   be quick and get behind him by either jumping over him or dashing       |
 |   below him. If you're not quick enough, Rospark might hit you with a     |
 |   absolutely mega-huge beam.                                              |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Pole Thunder: He electrifies the pole he's climbing on. Just don't      |
 |   touch the pole.                                                         |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Triangle of Death: A triangle of electric energy appears after some     |
 |   spikes have reacted with each other. Just don't go into the triangle,   |
 |   and you'll be fine. Not very hard to avoid at all.                      |
 |                                                                           |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+

It won't be a shocking event for most of you, as you've probably guessed how
the whole ZX thing works: You'll receive the [Rosepark DNA] now that you've won
the battle. That's a great thing, mostly because by using this form, you will
be able to climb on poles like the ones Rosepark himself was climbing on. That
means you'll be able to gain access to new areas and hidden stuff! Yes! Great!
Also, get out of the boss room by moving left. The Raider from earlier, Gerry
is here, and he's shaking in his pants. Badly.

Gerry has a good reason for doing so, but he doesn't know it himself just yet.
Watch what happens to poor Gerry, then listen to what the two guys that just
popped up have to tell you. Their names are Aeolus and Siarnaq, and they're not
nice guys at all! We'll have to deal with their pitiful existence later on
though, since right now, they both escape as quickly as they appeared. You
don't really need me to tell you, but continue left now, to find a room full of
spikes. Happily, there are poles here to, so merge into Rosepark and climb to
the left end of the room to find [Datadisk B18] on the floor.

In the next room, there's a Transport pad waiting for you. Step on it and press
UP on the directional pad to activate it. When asked to transport, do so to get
taken back to Tower of Verdure 1, the very beginning of the level. It's good to
be back here for sure, after clearing the level and all. We didn't end up
shutting off a computer like Albert told us to do after all. Weird, and cool.

 o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o

First of all, go to the right end of the   o----------- Optional ------------o
area  to  find that  the  gate that  was   |                                 |
here  earlier  has  been  unlocked. Grab   | - Type: Datadisk                |
the datadisk behind the  open gate. It's   |                                 |
the [Datadisk E34], by the way. The next   | In  Tower  of  Verdure  1, make |
step in the  storyline is  to move right   | your way upwards until you  see |
from the datadisk you  just go, but  you   | a entrance leading left outside |
might  want another  optional disk  that   | of the building. There's a pole |
you   saw   earlier,   before    getting   | out here, so grab onto it while |
Rospark's  DNA. If so, look here ------>   | in Rosepark form! Climb upwards |
                                           | to find [Datadisk E16].         |
Now, to continue with the main storyline,  |                                 |
go to the bottom  of Tower of Verdure 1,   o---------------------------------o
and continue right from the unlocked gate.
There's a Transerver in here, so use  it to save your game and report that you
have actually completed another mission. Afterwards, it's time to warp all the
way back to your  temporary home, the cozy Hunter's Camp. To proceed  with the
main  game, go to  Hunter's Camp 3, and  enter the  door at the  bottom of the
ladder just right of the munching hunter, Owl.

===============================================================================

--- ARCTIC ICE FLOE 1 ---------------------------------------------------------

 o----------------------------o   Activate the warp point at the entrance, then
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   proceed  right  into  the  next  room. You'll
 |                            |   receive a radio message about this area being
 | Datadisk E25..........[  ] |   covered in ice. Fine to us, as we're ready to
 | Datadisk E22..........[  ] |   take on  anything. Even  forces of  doomsday!
 |                            |   Anyway,  melt  the   ice  just  ahead   using
 o----------------------------o   Buckfire's  buster, then  drop down into  the
                                  water to find two E-crystal packs in the left
end of the water. Continue  right underwater, past a red  platform. Now jump up
from the water after passing that red platform. Take  out the green turret just
before the surface, and get up to the ice blocks.

Once up  on the blocks, do a dash-jump left to find a disk, [Datadisk E25]. Now
continue  making your way right, and drop  into the water again at the next gap
leading  down there. You'll find  another green turret, so  take  that one out,
then look closely to the right of that turret.

There's an  enemy hanging   on an  ice block   above you!  And, ontop  of  that
block, there is a datadisk. What you need  to do is to shoot the enemy to  make
the  disk  start falling,  then grab   it quickly  before it   falls out of the
screen. If you miss the disk, you  can  leave the area and come  back  again to
have it  respawn. The disk is, by the way, named [Datadisk E22]. After  getting
the disk, jump back up from the water and jump ontop of the ice blocks to reach
the far right end of the area. Exit using the gate there.

--- ARCTIC ICE FLOE 2 ---------------------------------------------------------

As  always,  turn  on the  warp  point  at the   o----------------------------o
entrance,  then continue  right. There's  some   | ITEM CHECKLIST             |
freezing ice blocks in the next  room, so melt   |                            |
them  with Buckfire,  and drop  down into  the   | SubTank...............[  ] |
water below. What might await  your  nobleness   |                            |
down here? A  boss? Yes,  quite right. A boss!   o----------------------------o

 | - General Info: This battle is absolutely overcome-able. The only         |
 |   vulnerable point on the boss itself though, is the slimy metal eye that |
 |   appears once you've taken out the boss's arms.                          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Arms: The boss will often make some arms pop up from the ceiling and    |
 |   floor. In the beginning, two arms will appear, then four will appear    |
 |   once the boss gets damaged. Stay in the very left or right end to       |
 |   avoid touching the arms, then hit them with Model A's homing attack     |
 |   once they appear! Be quick, or the boss might shoot projectiles at      |
 |   you! Once the arms are done for, use buster shots to attack the eye     |
 |   that appears ontop of the boss itself. Should not be                    |
 |   a problem for most players.                                             |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Missiles: If you're not quick to take out the arms, use Model A's       |
 |   homing attack to deal with the missiles that are shot at you.           |
 |                                                                           |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+

If   you're   interested   in   doing  a   o----------- Optional ------------o
sidequest after  the boss  battle, check   |                                 |
out  the  Sidequests  section  and   the   | - Type: SubTank                 |
"Catch    The    Moth    Queen"   quest.   |                                 |
Afterwards,  proceed  by  running  right   | In the middle of the area  with |
from where you  downed the boss.  You'll   | all  the  ice  blocks  and  the |
find a passage  with no floor,  and lots   | enemies sitting on them,  there |
of spikes in the  ceiling. To go to  the   | are  some  pipes.  Use Rosepark |
right  end  of  that  passage,  you need   | form to  climb onto  the lowest |
Chronoforce, so we will come back  later   | pipe, then get yourself to  the |
on. Jump upwards  just before the  spike   | top right pipe  to  find a blue |
passage. You'll find  an area with  lots   | [SubTank]. Great find, eh?      |
of  ice  blocks and  enemies  sitting on   |                                 |
them. In the right end of this area  you   o---------------------------------o
will find  the gate  to proceed  in, but
before  leaving,  consider  getting  the  SubTank  by looking at  the box  to
the right of this paragraph. SubTanks are great, so you should get it!

Start making your way to the very right end of the area now. There's an energy
pack  hidden  under the  very last line of ice  blocks you'll encounter in the
area. Grab that one, then enter the  gate in  the right  end. Activate  a warp
point in the next room, then sprint  further  right to reach  a brand new area.

--- ARCTIC ICE FLOE 3 ---------------------------------------------------------

As you can see, this whole room is filled with water. Go right until you see
some ice blocks above you. Melt them with Buckfire and jump upwards. Up here,
go left to find an energy pack, then open the blue door close to the energy
pack. Destroy the GREEN MACHINE in this room, then head outside again. Start
going right, and melt the ice blocks close to the shell type enemy. On the
other side of the blocks, there is a gap. Jump to the other side of the gap,
and head inside the door there that is hidden by some ice blocks. Take out the
PURPLE MACHINE in this room, and head outside to the gap again.

Now you should drop down into the gap you jumped over to take out the purple
machine. After droppin' down, melt the blocks on you left side. Enter the door,
take out a RED MACHINE, then go outside again. Now proceed left, melt the
blocks and drop down. You should have some blocks on your left now, as well as
some blocks on your right. Ignore the left blocks, and melt the right ones
instead, then melt the first set of blocks you reach in order to find another
door in a small gap. Destroy the YELLOW MACHINE in that room.

Head outside of the yellow machine's room, and continue right until you can't
get any further. Enter the door here, break the BLUE MACHINE. Go outside again,
run a tiny bit back left, and melt the blocks above you using a charged jump in
Buckfire form. At the top, head right. If you've broken all the machines I've
mentioned in CAPS, there won't be a gate blocking your way here. So, proceed
right to end up in another room with a Warp Point. Activate, go right, and open
up the boss gate in the next area once you feel ready. You might want to
backtrack though, defeating enemies and collecting energy in order to fill the
SubTank, if you chose to get it back in Ice Floe 2.

Two Mega Men will meet you in here, Thetis and Atlas. They won't fight you now
though, but someone else does -- Chronoforce.

 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+
 |                                                                           |
 | Elemental weakness: Fire                                                  |
 | Weak point: Fins on lower body                                            |
 |                                                                           |
 | - General Info: The whole battle takes place underwater. Chronoforce is   |
 |   a fish-like Pseudoroid, and will be swimming around quite a bit.        |
 |   Happily however, his attacks are not very hard to avoid in general.     |
 |   Although Buckfire is the strongest model to use against Chronoforce,    |
 |   I prefer Model A myself, since Buckfire is pretty large, and easy for   |
 |   Chronoforce to hit while fighting.                                      |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Small Mates: Chronoforce crashes into the dirt, then he releases        |
 |   four small enemies that all come swimming towards you. Use Model A's    |
 |   homing attack to kill the four of them, then quickly jump upwards, as   |
 |   Chronoforce will come towards you after his mates are dead.             |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Dash: He comes dashing towards you, either or ground level or a little  |
 |   higher up in the water. Either dash under him, or jump over him.        |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Background Spikes: Chronoforce goes into the background, then releases  |
 |   a lot of spikes that all come towards you. You need good reflexes       |
 |   to do it, but by simply moving and estimating, you can avoid being      |
 |   hit by a spike. Do NOT use Buckfire during this part of the battle.     |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Foreground Spikes: Chronoforce shoots spikes at you from one of         |
 |   the upper corners. Look closely, and stand between two spikes, so that  |
 |   you don't touch any of them.                                            |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Tick Tock: While in the background, Chronoforce starts ticking like a   |
 |   clock. From now on, his moves will be faster.                           |
 |                                                                           |

Congratulations, you are now the owner of the [Chronoforce DNA]! It's a little
slimy, but I assure you, one day, you will come to love it with all your heart.
Perhaps. Anyway, try merging into Chronoforce form to find out that you can
actually swim through water now, like a fish. A lively fish made of metal! Exit
the boss room in the right end to find a room with spikes in the ceiling. Swim
ahead and grab [Datadisk B07] from the floor. Exit in the right end of the
spike room afterwards.

===============================================================================

--- OIL FIELD 1 ---------------------------------------------------------------

Can you see the door just above you, in the top left end? It leads back to
where you took down Rospark. Don't go in there. Just right of where you entered
there are some colored gates and a door in the background. Go into that
background door right now. You'll see lots of crates in here. Some to your
right, and some above you. Use Buckfire to break the crates above you first,
then climb up there using Rosepark, since there is a pole leading upwards. Once
up here, climb to the right end of the room to find a SPHERE. Use a charged
Rospark attack on the sphere in order to deactivate it. Now go back down to
the crates that you saw earlier on your right side.

Break through the crates, and use a Buckfire flame arrow to deactivate the
SPHERE down here. Now head further right and break the crates that are blocking
a passage down into the water. Drop into the water, then transform into
Chronoforce and swim trough the spiked passage leading left. You'll find the
third and last SPHERE down here. Attack it using Chronoforce. You should now
get a message saying that all the elemental spheres have been deactivated!

Run all the way back to the colored gates you saw earlier now. They have all
opened up! Allright, walk through the opened gates to find a Warp Point. Go
right from the Warp Point to reach the next room, which is a hot place with
lots of sand. You'll meet a Raider named Dan at the entrance. Dan is scared, as
something has attacked the Raider airship he's been working at. Master Thomas
calls you for a quick chat. Once you're done talking, let's continue.

--- OIL FIELD 1 (AFTER MEETING DAN) -------------------------------------------

Run a tiny  bit right from  Dan. Take out  the   o----------------------------o
enemy  that  is   shooting  balls,  then   use   | ITEM CHECKLIST             |
Buckfire to  do a  jump straight  upwards, and   |                            |
climb onto the  ledge leading left.  Make your   | Datadisk E08..........[  ] |
way to  the top,  then start  running right to   |                            |
find  the [Datadisk  E08]. Take  out the  ball   o----------------------------o
-throwing enemy right of the  disk,  then drop
down just ahead, down to the bottom of the area.

A little behind you there will be a big energy pack, if you're interested in
it. Start moving further right again until you see two flying bird enemies.
There is a 1UP above these birds, so use Buckfire form to jump up to it. Now go
as far right as possible, climb up the ladder, and enter the gate. Activate the
warp point in the next empty room, then exit the room in the right end.

--- OIL FIELD 2 ---------------------------------------------------------------

 o----------------------------o   Just right of the entrance you will encounter
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   Mavericks on  bikes! They're  really easy  to
 |                            |   avoid; just  stand still when they  approach,
 | Datadisk M10..........[  ] |   and they will  jump over you.  If you need  E
 |                            |   -crystals  or  energy, just  keep  on killing
 o----------------------------o   bikers, as they won't ever stop appearing  if
                                  you  just stand  still. Right  of the  bikers
there is a mecha-like enemy, and above it you will find another 1UP. Get is  by
hopping up there in  Buckfire form, as always.  You will soon find  a pipe that
breaks when you walk on it. Once you have the Featherweight, you will  be  able
to get  a datadisk  here, but  not yet.  Proceed right,  and watch  out for the
bikers coming from behind.

You'll find a lot of poles hanging  in the background above a huge fall.  Don't
drop down  from  those  poles, as    you'll die  a  horrible  death if   you do
so. Instead, use Rospark to climb right! Don't worry about the enemies climbing
on the pipes -- avoiding  them is easier than  stopping to take them  down.  On
the other side, after  all the poles, go  right for a boss  battle. This fellow
will be recognize-able if you've played the first ZX title.

 | - General Info: While Aspis is actually weak towards Electricity          |
 |   based attacks (Rosepark), I personally prefer using Buckfire to         |
 |   avoid taking a lot of damage in this battle. Buckfire can jump and      |
 |   move in a much more effective manner!                                   |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Fire Circle: He shoots a circle of fire. If the circle does not         |
 |   stop, just jump over it. If it does stop, transform into Model A,       |
 |   stay in the left corner, and do a small jump when the circle breaks     |
 |   into many small fires.                                                  |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Freeze: Desert Aspis freezes your body. Mash the directional pad to     |
 |   get back to normal. It's also possible to avoid being frozen in the     |
 |   fist place. Just look in the other direction when Aspis uses its        |
 |   Freeze attack.                                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Energy Shot: A buster shot that can be avoided by wall-jumping.         |
 |   Buckfire makes it easier to avoid this one.                             |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Mines: He drops remote mines onto the ground. Just stay away from       |
 |   them, and everything will be fine. I've received word that the "mines"  |
 |   don't look like mines at all, by the way. Are they oil blobs? Yeah.     |
 |                                                                           |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+

That was a rather quick battle, was it not? Good, good. Sprint a tiny bit right
now, and you'll find a mysterious tunnel entrance! Before pushing yourself into
that dark tunnel, jump up  to the top of the  tunnel entrance in order to  find
[Datadisk M10]. As  always, use Buckfire  to do high jumps. Now, head into that
black and weird hole. Yes, the tunnel.

After activating the warp point that greets you, and walking past a locked room
with the letters "DATA", you should be able to see an elevator. Just right of
the elevator there are three doors. Head into the first door in order to make a
Raider escape, then head into the third one, as door number two is locked. In
the right end of the third room, you will get [Datadisk E24]. There are also
six machines in this room, close to the datadisk. Use charged Rosepark shots to
activate all six machines (use secondary fire for the ones in the ceiling).
When you have activated all of them machines, go outside again.

All of the doors in this area have now been unlocked. Use the elevator to reach
the top floor. There is one room with a Raider up here, so talk to him to save
him, then go into the other room on the top floor to find [Datadisk E10] on a
ledge. Once all the Raiders on the top floor and on the floor with the electric
machines have been saved, go back to the room with the "DATA" letters in order
to save your progress. You're now ready to open the boss gate a tiny bit right
of the door leading into the electric machine room. So, do it. There's a warp
point just after entering the boss gate. You'll see Atlas jumping into a hole,
and you'll see a datadisk just left of that hole! Grab the [Datadisk O01] and
drop down into the hole, following that mad girl Atlas.

 | - General Information: Just like in the battle against Aspis earlier      |
 |   in the Oil Field level, using Rosepark is a bad idea, since he is       |
 |   so slow. Instead, Model A is recommended. By me it is, at least.        |
 |   Try attacking Atlas using charged buster shots at all times. She's      |
 |   pretty quick though, so don't stay still for too long.                  |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Normal Buster: Atlas shoots some normal buster shots towards you.       |
 |   Avoiding this attack is very easy -- just jump upwards to the floor     |
 |   above her, then drop back down and start attacking her again.           |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Tracked Buster: Atlas draws a red line. Soon after, buster shots        |
 |   will be fired, following that red line's pattern. Just don't go         |
 |   into the red line, and she won't hit you.                               |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Mines: She drops several mines onto the ground. Use Model A's           |
 |   homing attack to remove them before they explode! If you just ignore    |
 |   the mines and jump to the top floor, you will get in a tricky           |
 |   situation where you're trapped between buster shots and mines.          |
 |   So, try to take out those mines.                                        |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Hadouken: A shot consisting of one huge fireball. The fireball          |
 |   moves so slow that this might be a joke attack. Not a threat at all.    |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Shattering Energy Ball: A circle-formed energy ball that will hit       |
 |   the wall and shatter into many small pieces. Since Model A form isn't   |
 |   very huge, you should be able to avoid the small pieces by dashing.     |
 |                                                                           |

room, running on the stairs  that cover  the whole place. At the top, you  will
find energy packs in both the left and right end of the room. Grab  the energy,
then open up the gate at the top. Take  out the three turrets in the  corridor,
and exit in  the  right end.  Gosh, there's a  lot of exiting  in right ends of
rooms going on here. More  than what's acceptable! Well,  kind of. Not  really.

There's more stairs and motorbike Mavericks in the next room. Make your way to
the top left end to find [Datadisk E13] and a door in the background. Ignore
the background door, and go to the upper right end of the room with stairs in.
You'll find a huge boss gate here, so open it up!

 | - General Info: You probably didn't expect it after dealing with all of   |
 |   the previous bosses, but Siarnaq is a real pushover. This battle is     |
 |   extremely easy to win. The most special thing about out friend Siarnaq  |
 |   is that he has the ability to go invisible for short amounts of time.   |
 |   He'll vanish from time to time, and while he's gone, you can't          |
 |   damage him. Charge your Model A buster, and release the charged shot    |
 |   into his poor face once he appears again.                               |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Shuriken Circle: He starts floating in the air, and makes several       |
 |   purple shuriken appear in a circle around him. After a while, he        |
 |   releases them towards you. Try to stay in the corner and avoid          |
 |   the shuriken by doing a quick dash.                                     |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Trio Attack: SIARNAQ floats in the air again, and summons two clones.   |
 |   Shoot at them all using a homing shot. The clones will vanish, and      |
 |   the battle continues like usual. What a weak move, Siarnaq!             |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Shadow Escape: The coward starts dashing, then vanishes into the        |
 |   shadows, only to appear at a different place some seconds later. Keep   |
 |   on jumping and running to avoid being hit by him when he appears again. |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Projectile Throw: Similar to the Shuriken Circle, but this time,        |
 |   he throws some small projectiles at you. This is a faster attack,       |
 |   where Siarnaq doesn't spend time on charging. Dash/jump to avoid it!    |
 |                                                                           |

Waaai! Waai! You're now the owner of [Biometal Model P]! The shadow master
super Biometal! Or something -- I don't like it myself, really. Anyway, watch
the cut-scene. It should become clear now that you can't trust anyone anymore!
Head right out of the boss room to reach a room filled with darkness. In rooms
like this, you should Megamerge into Model P, since it has a very nice Radar
Scope feature that lets you see the structure of the room you're currently in!
At the beginning of the room, wall-jump straight upwards to find a flying
platform. Grab onto it and jump further upwards to find [Datadisk B09]. Head
over to the upper right corner and exit the room. Activate the warp point in
here, then proceed right again for another room.

This area looks absolutely lovely, with a blue sky in the background. Start
hopping right, using the flying platforms to reach the right end of a huge gap.
Proceed right all the way until you meet a huge creature -- a King Flyer!
Defeating it is easy, just use Model P's charged attack, the Mandala Star.
Once the purple shuriken appear around your body, run close to the King Flyer
to make it explode in no time! The King Flyer goes BOOM, then the ground
collapses. Down at the bottom, you'll find the [Datadisk M04]! Wall-jump up
again, and proceed right from where you took down the King Flyer.

You'll soon run into an air surfboard. Once you hop onto it, the board will
start moving towards a corridor with purple Galleons in. At the entrance of
this corridor, there is a datadisk on a ledge. To get it, you can use a charged
Buckfire jump just before the surfboard enters the corridor. If you miss your
timing, you can drop down from the corridor entrance and jump back to the
board's starting point, as there are some platforms below the entrance. Anyway,
the datadisk is named [Datadisk E42].

Now walk into the corridor again, and go to the right end. Slide down the wall
at the right exit to find a wall covering another disk. Shoot at the wall to
break it, then take [Datadisk E38] from behind the wall. Just right of the disk
and the breakable wall, there is another surfboard. Stand on it until it hits
another wall.  Now, shoot at the wall to break it! Head into the corridor
behind the wall you just broke, and dash-jump over the spikes in there to find
a [SubTank]! Exit the SubTank corridor in the right end. Continue making your
way right through the area until you see a red flying platform above you. Use
Buckfire to get up onto that red platform. It will move upwards, to another
surfing board. Get onto that board to have it take you left into a hidden room
where you'll get [Datadisk E09].

Now you can start moving towards the right again. Continue doing so until you
see another of those red flying platforms. Step on it and follow it upwards to
a small wagon with spikes on both sides. Just ignore the wagon by dash-jumping
over it. When you reach the next gap, Megamerge into Model P form, and activate
your Mandala Star attack. Now, dash-jump to the wall right of the gap. There's
an enemy there, but your Mandela Stars will take care of him. Now destroy the
machine here on the other side, and grab the huge energy pack found behind it.

After grabbing the energy, slide down to the bottom of the gap you just jumped
over. Enter the corridor, and exit at the right side. Follow another red flying
platform upwards, and continue right. At the bottom of the next gap, there is a
1UP, so if you want it, make sure to grab it! Finally, make your way to the
right end of the area (by using the air board left of the 1UP, for example).
Then exit in the very right end. Great job, this area wasn't really any fun.

follow it  upwards, then  go right  for a  cut   | ITEM CHECKLIST             |

to experience. Anyway, just  watch it, I won't   o----------------------------o
spoil anything more right now. When things have
calmed down a little again, Master Mikhail brings news -- Mavericks have
started popping up all over the world! Master Thomas gives you a mission to
stop all of the Mavericks, and put an end to whatever it is Albert is planning.
A very important thing that only a very important person can do! That's you!

Use the door in the right end of the Sage Trinity's room, and head to the
bottom of the elevator there. You'll find a Transerver and a datadisk. Grab the
[Datadisk O03], then activate the Transerver to save your game and report the
mission you just completed by simply seeing the Sage Trinity. 500 EC in reward!
The Sage Trinity has opened several new locations you can transport to now.
Your new choices are the "Floating Ruins" level, "Scrapyard" and "Highway". Oh,
and "Control Center" too! You're free to choose whatever level you want to
play, but in this walkthrough, I'll start by covering the Highway! You can also
go get an optional Biometal Upgrade first, if you're interested:

Run right until you see [Datadisk M06] on the ground. Grab the datadisk, then
proceed until you reach the right end of the area. There's a boss door there!
One of your old friends are waiting at the other side of that gate...

It's that brat kiddie Thetis again! It wasn't an old friend after all! Sorry!
Well, we'll have to kick some MegaMan butt here though, so prepare for battle!
Just when you thought you were going to start fighting however, Thetis starts
talking about Model W, and how he attacked the Highway in order to feed it!
Nonsense, nonsense, nonsense! We want to fight here! Not talk! Go! Burn!

 | Elemental weakness: Fire                                                  |
 | Weak point: ---                                                           |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - General Info: This battle takes place under water. You've got some     |
 |    pillars that you can stand on, but if you fall down, you'll die.       |
 |    When falling, transform into Chronoforce, and swim upwards again       |
 |    before falling too far down. Also, even if Thetis is weak towards      |
 |    fire, using Model A is just as effective as messing around with        |
 |    Buckfire (too huge) and Model F. So, use Model A, if you want to.      |
 |    Charging your buster and at the same time using homing attacks is      |
 |    so effective in this battle that it kind of scares me. Make sure       |
 |    to always dash-jump from pole to pole in order to avoid incoming       |
 |    attacks, and to make it easier to hit Thetis with your shots.          |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Ice Spikes: Thetis releases several ice spikes at you. They're         |
 |    moving quite fast, and avoiding them is hard. The best thing to do     |
 |    is to quickly shoot at them all using a homing shot. The spikes        |
 |    will break, and won't damage you at all.                               |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Spinning Spear: Thetis comes close to you, and spins his spear in      |
 |    a circle. Be quick and dash-jump away from him.                        |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Shooting Spear: He shoots a beam out of his spear. Avoid it by         |
 |    jumping away. As you've already realized, staying close to Thetis      |
 |    isn't a very good idea. So, be cautious!                               |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Whirlwind: A whirlwind device appears at the bottom of the screen,     |
 |    and some ice spikes are thrown into the water. Shoot at the spikes to  |
 |    break as many of them as possible, then drop down back onto a pillar.  |
 |    Now the whirlwind will try to suck you and the spikes down into the    |
 |    endless gaps below the pillars. Run in the opposite direction when you |
 |    start being sucked in. This way, you won't fall down below the pillars.|
 |                                                                           |

Congratulations, you're now the owner of [Biometal Model L]. After Ashe has
seen a weird vision inside her head, Mikhail gets in touch with her. He says
that all the civilians survived! Now, Megamerge into Model L. It lets you swim
in the water, without having to become as big as Chronoforce. Nice! Get up from
the water and start running towards the right. Drop down into the next gap, and
swim to the lower right corner to find [Datadisk B12]. Take it, then exit the
water above the datadisk. Go right to find a Transerver. Save, report mission.
Just like last time, you're free to choose your next stage, but I'll be
covering the Floating Ruins next. If you want to follow me, you can do that.

===============================================================================
                                Floating Ruins                           [wa08]
===============================================================================

--- FLOATING RUINS 1 ----------------------------------------------------------

At the beginning of this level, you'll realize   o----------------------------o
that  the  ground suddenly  rises  straight up   | ITEM CHECKLIST             |
into  the  air,  floating  on  some   unstable   |                            |
surface.  Go  right, and  shoot  the artillery   | Datadisk B17..........[  ] |
machine to  bits. Use  Rosepark form  to climb   |                            |
the vines. Keep on climbing until you  reach a   o----------------------------o
platform in the middle of the area.
On this platform, you'll find [Datadisk E17]! There's another disk in this area
too, but we'll have to come back later for it. For now however, exit right and
activate the warp point. Proceed right into the second area of the ruins.

--- FLOATING RUINS 2 ----------------------------------------------------------

Note that there's a weak wind blowing in this area. If you stand still, you
might fall down if you're not careful. There's two datadisks in this area, but
with out current forms, we can't get them. Make your way to the right end of
the area by standing on the moving platforms, and by jumping into the cyclones
that are scattered around. They'll take you high up into the air. Exit in the
right end, and activate a warp point.

--- FLOATING RUINS 3 ----------------------------------------------------------

If you want to play the sidequest that starts in this area, check out the
sidequests section and the quest named "Find The Ancient Artifacts". If not,
go to the upper right end of the area, and open the boss gate. We'll come back
later in order to get a datadisk, too.

 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+
 |                                                                           |

 |  - General Info: Aeolus might look underwhelming at first, with his       |
 |    small body and all. However, he's not easy to take down at all.        |
 |    To make things work out, use Chronoforce's Time Bomb move in order     |
 |    to slow down all of his attacks at the beginning. Then, merge into     |
 |    Model L and use your spear to deal damage.                             |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Air Slash: Aeolus dashes around in the air, slashing around like       |
 |    a madman. The best thing to do if you want to avoid getting hit        |
 |    is to dash under him when he's close to you.                           |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Tri-Slash: He stands on the ground, and starts slashing. At the third  |
 |    slash, a wave of energy gets shot towards you. Make sure to watch      |
 |    him closely, so that you'll be able to jump above the wave!            |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Electro Mills: Two windmills sparking with electric energy are         |
 |    summoned onto the battlefield. With Chronoforce's Time Bomb activated, |
 |    you should be able to walk between the two mills, not touching them.   |
 |    Without Time Bomb activated, this is very hard.                        |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Horizontal Winds: Aeolus starts charging his saber, then shoots a      |
 |    cyclone towards you. Stand close to him when he starts charging, then  |
 |    quickly do a dash jump away from him the moment he releases the        |
 |    cyclone. You'll be able to jump above it this way. If you're standing  |
 |    far away from him when the cyclone gets released, avoiding is hard.    |
 |                                                                           |

I probably don't need to do so  anymore,   o----------- Optional ------------o
but I'll  tell you  anyways; now  you've   |                                 |

small   corridor   containing  [Datadisk   | datadisk lying on a ledge above |
B16]. To get the disk, try out Model H's   | you.  Also, there is a  cyclone |

the main game, find  a Transerver again,   o---------------------------------o
and warp over to the Scrapyard stage. It's
found in the lower left end of the map, just like the Floating Ruins and the
Highway. There's no need to wait anymore -- get going there already!

--- SCRAPYARD 1 ---------------------------------------------------------------

 o----------------------------o   There's a  lot of  living scrap  here in this
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   stage, and of course, the scrap will be  your
 |                            |   enemies! Go right to  find a lot of  scrap on
 | Datadisk E18..........[  ] |   the  ground. It's  not dangerous  to step  on
 |                            |   scrap piles like this  if you run, but  don't
 o----------------------------o   let it suck you  down. Enter the gate  in the
                                  right end of the entrance area. Now you're in
a corridor. Head right, don't drop down into the gap --  instead  open the door
in the upper right end of the corridor. You'll find an enemy and [Datadisk E18]
in here. Take the disk, and go back to the corridor again. Head a tiny bit back
left, and this time drop down into  the gap you jumped over a moment  ago. Keep
on running and blasting through enemies and blockades until you find a door  in
the bottom right end of the corridor. Open that door! Take out the two  grenade
- dropping  flower enemies  in the  next room,  and exit  in the right end. Now
climb up the orange ladders above you, and open the door at the top.

You should now be in a room with  a green turret to your left, and four  blocks
above it. Attack the turret, then shoot  the blocks to bits in order to  find a
1UP item.  Now merge  into Model  P and  grab onto  the handle  hanging in  the
ceiling close to where you entered. A  in the bottom of the room will  open, so
be quick and  dash under it  before it closes.  Exit in the  left end. The next
room has a door at  the bottom, and not much  else, so go into that  door. Once
again grab the handle in the ceiling, dash under the gate that opens, then exit
in the right end. Activate the warp point in the next area, and continue right.

since that is the only door  we  haven't   o---------------------------------o
opened yet. Run through a tiny corridor,
exit in the right end.

You'll find some purple Galleons hanging above you in the next room. Take out
the Mavericks, and just ignore the door in the top of the room, as it just
leads back. Instead, exit at the bottom of the room. Use Model P to open the
gate down there, and head into the door behind the gate. Use Model P in the
next room as well, climbing on the poles hanging on the background. The room
is quite empty, so just exit in the right end. There's a handle at the
beginning of the next room. Pull it down, then quickly climb to the right end,
dashing under a gate just before it closes. At the other side of the closing
gate, there's a new set of three different doors! Exciting! You can get a
datadisk by entering the right door, but I really don't recommend doing so
right now, as we can't fly properly in the air yet. We'll come back for it
later on, I promise. So, enter the middle door instead.

Run through another of those small corridors, and exit in the right end in
order to find an area with two flying shielded enemies. Shoot at their backs to
kill them both off, then run through the gate in the right end of the room!
Activate the warp point you'll run into next and continue right to Scrapyard 3.

Shoot at the switch in front of you -- just near the entrance. A huge lift will
come down. Step on it to have the lift take you upwards, where [Datadisk E20]
can be found. Now make your way to the upper right end of the room, and exit
using the door up there. You'll find a room with a lot of lift blocks. To make
the blocks move, shoot at the switches hanging close to them. Exit in the lower
right end of the room. You don't have to move more than at the very most three
blocks to get down there.

You'll find yourself in a room with a ladder hanging above you at the entrance.
Run straight left first, shooting down the Mavericks hanging in the ceiling.
After a while you will see a fake energy pack. Kill it, then grab the item
lying on the ground behind it. It's a [Titanium Alloy] that is used for the
sidequest named "Recycle Junk" (covered in the sidequests section). Now, go
to the lower right end of the room, below where you found the alloy. Open the
door there, and use Buckfire's arrows to activate the switch in here. Once
activated, go back to the room where you got the alloy.

In the middle of that room, a block has now moved itself, so that  you can jump
up into a newly opened passage where the block used to be. Jump up there, and
exit in the upper left end. Activate the switch at the top of the next room,
then go back into the room with the alloy again. In the middle left end, a new
passage will have opened after activating that last switch. So, head to the
middle left end where there is another switch and a new door. Activate the
switch (so that it turns RED), and head inside the door.

Use the two blocks in the next room to go right. When standing on the second
block, activate the switch in front of you. The block will move right, and you
will see a gate and a handle. Head over to the gate, hit the nearby switch so
that it turns GREEN, then open the gate by grabbing the handle with Model P.
Jump to the very top of the next room, and move right. You'll find a gate and a
switch there. Ignore the switch for now, and open the gate. Activate the warp
point in here, and proceed right, opening the boss gate in front of you.

--- SCRAPYARD 4 ---------------------------------------------------------------

This  time, we  won't be  fighting a  MegaMan.   o----------------------------o
Instead,  we'll  get  to  teach  a  lesson  to   | ITEM CHECKLIST             |
another Pseudoroid. Vulturon is his name,  and   |                            |
he sure  looks scary, with a  green and  slimy   | Vulturon DNA..........[  ] |
body. He's  aggressive too, so let's  not keep   | Datadisk B08..........[  ] |
him waiting for  too long. Don't worry though,   | Life Up...............[  ] |
as the battle is totally overcomeable.           o----------------------------o

 | Weak point: ---                                                           |
 |                                                                           |
 | - General Info: Look closely at how the room you're in is formed. The     |
 |   floor in the right and left ends is lower than in the middle of the     |
 |   room. Standing at lower ground makes it easier to avoid Vulturon's      |
 |   attacks; make sure to remember that during this battle. As for what     |
 |   model you should use to fight him, it's your choice. I like Model A,    |
 |   but Model L is also a good choice, if you like close combat.            |
 |   Also, make sure to shoot at the speakers hanging in the ceiling.        |
 |   They will send waves into Vulturon's body if he's close to them.        |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Thugs: Vulturon summons small enemies to help him in battle. Deal with  |
 |   them once they appear, as they can be quite a bother if they're still   |
 |   walking around when you're trying to avoid his other moves. Homing      |
 |   shots are more than recommended to down 'em.                            |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Protective Circle: A shielding circle appears around Vulturon's         |
 |   body. Not only does the circle protect him -- it damages you too, if    |
 |   you touch it. Stay in one of the corners of the room to be safe.        |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Supersonic Waves: He sends waves out towards you. If they hit you,      |
 |   you won't be able to use your buster for a couple of seconds. Just      |
 |   stay away from him to avoid being hit.                                  |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Falling Speakers: The speakers in the ceiling suddenly fall down        |
 |   and explode into thousands of small pieces! To avoid this, you should   |
 |   just break the speakers while they're still hanging in the ceiling.     |
 |   Doing so while Vulturon is close to them will damage him too!           |
 |                                                                           |

Once you're at the top (after either climbing ropes to get the Life Up, or
following the elevator without climbing ropes), exit the room in the right end.
Shoot at the explosive blocks in the next room, and drop into the hole that
appears after you've done so. You'll see two gates -- one on each side! Head
into the right one, as the left one just leads back to the elevator room. Turn
on the warp point in the next room, and exit right again.

Watch out for the drilling enemies coming out of the ceiling and floor in this
room, and make sure to avoid the flame cannons as well. On the floor in the
middle of the room, you'll find [Datadisk E26], and a little further right,
you'll get [Datadisk E06]. Both of them are just laying on the floor, waiting
for you to pick them up. Continue running to the very right end of the room to
find [Datadisk M02] and a gate. Make sure that you got all of the three disks
in this room, then exit through the gate and prepare for a boss battle.

 | - General Information: This boss has several vulnerable targets, and      |
 |   in order to defeat it, you'll have to break them all! Doing so is       |
 |   pretty easy if you're using Model A's homing shot combined with a       |
 |   charged buster shot now and then. Just target all the "eyes", then      |
 |   release a homing shot to damage them all. If you're having a hard       |
 |   time targeting them all, use the ledges in the middle of the area       |
 |   in order to get up to the eyes in the upper end of the room.            |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Atlas Mime: The boss has an attack that is a lot like the ones you      |
 |   saw in the battle against Atlas. Red squares will appear, then, a       |
 |   second later, the boss will shoot in the very same red pattern. Just    |
 |   stay away from the red squares, and you'll be fine. Easy battle, indeed.|

After beating the boss real hard, you'll find another warp point that you
should spend some crystals on activating. After that, exit right in order to
find the third main part of the Control Center stage. Exciting, yes? Yes!!

--- CONTROL CENTER 3 ----------------------------------------------------------

 o----------------------------o   You'll have to make  your way upwards to  the
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   top of  this room,  and doing  that is harder
 |                            |   than  it might  sound, since  there are  fire
 | Datadisk E40..........[  ] |   cannons  and  bazooka Galleons  all  over the
 |                            |   place. Megamerging  into Model  H is  a smart
 o----------------------------o   thing to do, as  it's air dash  is  great  to
                                  have when jumping upwards, dodging enemy fire
as you go. After  getting past the section with  the  fire cannons  and bazooka
enemies, you will find a platform made of tree. From  here on, you will have to
proceed upwards by wall-jumping from wall to wall.

The problem however, is that these walls will vanish after you touch them once.
The easiest thing to do is to first wall-jump onto one wall, then jump normally
towards the next wall. If you don't reach the next wall, do an air dash
straight upwards in order to gain some air. Repeat this process until you reach
the next platform made of tree. Remember that you need to use Model H in order
to pull off those air-dashes I keep talking about. Once you're done with the
vanishing walls, you'll find more bazooka Galleons, and a blue door. Head
inside that blue door in order to find [Datadisk E40], then go outside again.

Proceed upwards until you see a gate in the right end of the room. Ignore the
blocks in the ceiling for now, and open the gate instead.  Activate the warp
point, then go right to find the fourth main part of the Control Center.

--- CONTROL CENTER 4 ----------------------------------------------------------

This is a huge corridor with lots of  Galleons   o----------------------------o
in, and  a good opportunity to  do some energy   | ITEM CHECKLIST             |
farming. Continue right, jump over the  spikes   |                            |
(or  fly  using  Vulturon, if  you want  to do   | Queenbee DNA..........[  ] |
that). Once  you have  enough energy,  exit in   | Datadisk B05..........[  ] |
the right  end of  the corridor,  where a boss   |                            |
gate  is  located.   Have  a quick  chat  with   o----------------------------o
Prometheus, since he's  waiting  for you here,

 | - General Information: Queenbee might look tough at the beginning,        |
 |   as her body is covered with panzer plates. However, in reality, she     |
 |   is one of the easiest bosses in ZX Advent. Use Model A from the very    |
 |   beginning, and shoot at her panzer plates in order to break them.       |
 |   Once broken, you will be able to hit her stinger.                       |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Small Bees: Small bees come out of the panzer plates. Take them down    |
 |   by using a homing shot. Sometimes, she will also shoot rockets instead  |
 |   of bees. The rockets are faster, so try jumping over them instead of    |
 |   shooting them down like with the bees.                                  |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Heavenly Flames: Queenbee flies upwards and shoots several flames       |
 |   down towards you. Dash to the left of right end of the screen, and      |
 |   do a jump if the flames still come towards you.                         |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Flame Circle: Queenbee drops a huge circle of fire down from the sky.   |
 |   The circle then starts spitting small flames! Stand close to the        |
 |   circle, as most of the flames will fly towards the far right and left   |
 |   edges of the screen.                                                    |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Laser Beams From Inside: Yellow laser beams come out of Queenbee's      |
 |   body. To dodge them, look closely at Queenbee's body. Small flashes     |
 |   will appear a second or two before the laser beams themselves appear.   |
 |   So, once you see a small flash, run away from that spot's aim.          |
 |                                                                           |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+

Now that you've refused Queenbee's precious gift of despair, you're ready to
copy her [Queenbee DNA]. This DNA can be used to fly around in all directions,
and not just float left and right like you do when using the Vulturon form.
Exit in the right end of the boss room to find a computer that seems to be all
busted up! Change into Queenbee form, fly onto the busted computer, press DOWN,
then fly upwards again to lift the computer. Now it starts working again! Now
that you have repaired the computer, continue right to find [Datadisk B05] and
another gate. Take the disk and open the gate. There's a Transerver in the next
room, so save your progress there.

After you've activated the Transerver, Master Thomas calls you. He says that
he's received reports about Mavericks giving the Reploids a hard time in some
kind of Quarry area. That quarry will be our next target. But how are we
supposed to get there!? It's impossible to just warp there! Alright, now I
know how to do it! Go back to the very left end of Hunter's Camp 1. There's
a bronze barrel stuck in the ground there. Use Queenbee to drag it up from the
ground. A new passage will not be revealed! Drop down there right away.

There's lots of water down here, so use Chronoforce to swim left past some
spikes. When you see a green ball in the ceiling, use a charged Model L attack
to make it fall down. Now proceed left to find a red ball behind a wall. Use
a charged Model H attack to activate this ball. Once again, proceed left to
find some weights. Get past them using Vulturon, and open the next door. Great.
WELCOME BABY, YOU'RE IN THE JUNG... QUARRY!!

Spend some crystals on activating the warp point at the entrance, then go left
into the next room to find a lot of trashed equipment. Proceed left again, into
a dark area. Megamerge into Model P so that you can navigate using the lower
screen. Go to the left end of the room, and climb down the ladder there.
Continue going downwards until you reach the the lower left end, where
a [Legendary Pickaxe] is sitting on the ground, all alone. Grab it. Now start
running right from where you got the axe. Climb down another ladder, then start
going left. You'll find some pipes in there. With Model P equipped, hang
onto those pipes, and jump further left. Keep going until you find a boss door.

Either Vent or Aile from the first MegaMan ZX game is waiting in here. It all
depends on what character you're playing as. Vent/Aile seems to be just as
aggressive as your character is, and things like that often lead to
misunderstandings. This situation is just like that, and you'll have to fight.

 | - General Information: If you're playing like Normal (which is what I've  |
 |   done while writing the main walkthrough), you'll notice that this is    |
 |   another easy, kind of disappointing battle. Vent/Aile Megamerges into   |
 |   Model ZX form, and starts shooting buster shots at you, wall-sliding    |
 |   as he/her shoots at you. Sometimes, Model ZX comes after you, trying    |
 |   to slash your stomach open, but you can easily just wall-jump upwards   |
 |   to avoid being hit by the saber at all. To attack Model ZX, use         |
 |   homing shots and charged buster shots, Model A style.                   |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Buster Shots: Model ZX fires normal buster shots at you, either while   |
 |   standing on the floor, or while sliding down the wall. Avoid the shots  |
 |   by jumping. If you're hit, you won't take much damage, though.          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Charged Shot: A charged, more powerful buster shot. This one is more    |
 |   important to avoid. Watch Model ZX's body, as you'll see it starting    |
 |   to charge a couple of seconds before the shot is released. So, stay     |
 |   away when ZX starts to charge.                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Slash: Model ZX comes at you, trying to kill you with a saber slash!    |
 |   This is the most deadly attack in the battle, but still very easy to    |
 |   avoid. Just wall-jump upwards when ZX starts coming towards you. Being  |
 |   a coward has always been a smart thing when it comes to surviving.      |
 |                                                                           |

Now that you've defeated [Biometal Model ZX], you'll be able to use it for
yourself. Another good thing, is that the game now shows you some great
artwork, so keep your eyes on the screen. Vent/Aile gets a lot more friendly
too, as he/she is after Master Albert as well. Exit the room in the left end to
find [Datadisk B17] in the left end of the next corridor. Take it, and proceed
left into the next room.

The first room in Quarry 3 is totally empty and boring, so exit left. You'll
find a line of explosive blocks, but don't break them just yet. Instead,
examine the pile of rubbish on the ground just before these blocks. There's a
hidden datadisk in there. [Datadisk E03]! Grab it, then shoot the explosive
blocks so that they go boom. Continue left, shooting another line of blocks.
Now drop downwards, and use Model F to take out another line of blocks below
you. Now you should be in the lower right end of a pretty big quarry area.

Start going left from here. You'll find a passage that leads upwards again in
the left end of the area. Use Model H to climb the passage to the very top.
Up here, take out two green machines, and climb down the ladder left of the
machines. Make another line of crates explode below the ladder, but make sure
to watch out for the spikes just below the crates. Wall-sliding makes it easier
to avoid falling onto them. Below the third set of crates, there is a datadisk
lying on some spikes. Break the crates, then use Queenbee to fly to the
datadisk without touching the spikes. This is [Datadisk E45]. Once you reach
the very bottom, open the gate there leading right.

 | - General Information: The next room is a huge open area. In the middle   |
 |   of it, you'll see a green bulldozer that starts coming after you.       |
 |   Start escaping from it, running right. When you see a datadisk above    |
 |   you, at the other side of some blocks, wait for the bulldozer to come   |
 |   and break the blocks, then grab [Datadisk E35] as soon as it falls      |
 |   down. You might take some damage from this, but as long as you get      |
 |   the datadisk, it's no problem. Afterwards, continue escaping from the   |
 |   dozer again, running right! Real fast! Monkey Eileen style! You'll      |
 |   see a [Biometal Upgrade] above you soon. You can use the same           |
 |   strategy to get it, as you used to get the datadisk a moment ago. It    |
 |   might cost you a life, but getting the upgrade is easy -- just wait     |
 |   for the boss to come, then jump into the upgrade as it falls            |
 |   downwards from above.                                                   |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Alternate Strategy: At the beginning of the battle, you can use Model   |
 |   H to jump behind the boss. Once behind him, slow down the time by       |
 |   using Chronoforce's Time Bomb move. Now, use a powerful model, such     |
 |   as Model ZX to attack the boss's back until it blows up. The blocks     |
 |   ahead (including the ones where the datadisk and upgrade are found)     |
 |   can be broken by using a charged Model F punch. No need to escape       |
 |   if you use this strategy. The important thing is that you get both      |
 |   the datadisk and the Biometal Upgrade. Good luck!                       |
 |                                                                           |
 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+

Exit in the right end of the room, after dash-jumping over a row of nasty
spikes and climbing down a couple of ladders on the other side. There's a gate
at the bottom of those ladders.

Take out the  green machine just  left of   o----------- Optional -----------o
the entrance,  then grab  [Datadisk M09],   |                                |

just fine.

So, make your way to the very right end of Hunter's Camp 2, and climb down the
ladder there. You'll find some blocks at the bottom that should be broken with
Model F. Enter the green door in the water below the blocks.

the [Datadisk E27] in it. Make sure not to miss those items, then proceed
further right, exiting the sewer room using the gate in the absolute right end.

What was smelling so terrible earlier on was all the liquid found in this room.
Walking on it isn't dangerous, but you'll sink if you're too slow. Eventually
you can wear the Featherweight chip in order to not sink. Anyway, run right,
and use Queenbee form to lift the barrel that is blocking the path. Below the
barrel, dodge the enemies falling from the ceiling, and jump right over a small
gap. Now, if you want to get another Biometal Upgrade, have a look here:

 1 - After the blue enemies falling from the ceiling, you'll find another
     barrel. Use Queenbee form to pull the barrel up from the ground. After
     doing so, push it back into the ground by stepping on it in another form.

 2 - With the barrel pushed down again, go right, and drop into the water. Go
     to the right end of the water, and jump up to the surface to find another
     barrel. Pull it up from the ground using Queenbee. Lots of water will get
     start flowing into the area. Backtrack to the previous barrel.

 3 - Just right of that barrel, a platform has vanished, and below where the
     platform used to be, there is a [Biometal Upgrade] waiting for you!

Now that you have the Biometal Upgrade, make your way right from the water.
You'll see a ledge guarded by a purple Galleon. Up on this ledge, there are two
barrels, so use Queenbee form to lift them both up from the ground. Now crawl
under the barrels to find [Datadisk E04]! Drop down from where you got the
datadisk, and start running right through a corridor filled with water. In the
right end of the corridor, wall-jump upwards to find [Datadisk E14].

Continue going right. A short while after seeing a huge energy contain, you'll
find a narrow passage that you have to crawl through in human/Reploid form.
Once you see two platforms floating in the water, look further right to find a
yellow barrel. Lift it and drop it onto the leftmost platform. Now step on the
right platform that has been elevated slightly, and crawl through the passage
just right of the platform to find a 1UP and some spikes. Swim above the spikes
while in human form. When you see the ice spears in the  ceiling, just break
them with a Model F Megaton Punch. Right of those ice spears, you'll find
[Datadisk E11]. The next point of interest is the boss gate in the lower right
end of the room, so go there right now.

 |  - General Info: First of all, this battle can be real tough if you use   |
 |    the wrong model. I really recommend using Biometal Model F all the     |
 |    way through, and attacking Bifrost with charged shots all the time.    |
 |    Charged Model F shots will spread huge fires when they hit Bifrost's   |
 |    rather huge body. Also, the fire will burn through the panzer that     |
 |    defends Bifrost against normal attacks.                                |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Wheels of Madness: Bifrost spits out a couple of spikes wheels.        |
 |    They both come rolling towards you, but since we're in water,          |
 |    jumping up to dodge them isn't really a problem. Just watch out when   |
 |    they come back, bouncing off the wall. Dash to avoid them if they      |
 |    bounce back towards you.                                               |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Ice Spears of Coldness: He shoots several small ice spears through     |
 |    the room. Dash-jump to the upper right or upper left end of the room   |
 |    in order to be safe. Drop back down into the water once the spears     |
 |    have vanished off the screen.                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Heavy STOMP: The giant Pseudoroid jumps upwards, and crashes into the  |
 |    ground again, resulting in a small earthquake! Make sure to jump just  |
 |    before Bifrost hits the ground, if you don't like to get stunned!      |
 |                                                                           |
 |  - Bite/Frost Breath: These attacks are very similar. During one attack,  |
 |    he tries to bite you, and during the other, he blows an icy wind at    |
 |    you. Both attacks are simple to avoid -- just dash away from him.      |
 |    Note that after the bite attack, Bifrost's panzer defense goes down    |
 |    for a short moment. However, if you use charged Model F shots, you     |
 |    don't have to worry a lot about that, if you just want to get through  |
 |    the battle alive. Well, good work, boss SLAYER! Maverick KILLER!!      |

                                Waterfall Ruins                          [wa13]
===============================================================================

So, where do we find the Waterfall Ruins? Easy! Go to Hunter's Camp 3, and exit
in the very right end where there is a green gate close to a girl with purple
hair. In the next room, there are two gates and a man named John. Ignore John,
and head through the leftmost gate to reach the Waterfall Ruins.

--- WATERFALL RUINS 1 ---------------------------------------------------------

 o----------------------------o   As  you can  see, the   Waterfall Ruins  is a
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   jungle area. Activate the warp point and head
 |                            |   left into  the next  room. Mikhail  calls and
 | Argoyle DNA...........[  ] |   tells  you  to  watch out  for  some  kind of
 | Datadisk B04..........[  ] |   computer center, where  a hacker is  supposed

 |                            |   the middle of a jungle? Once Mikhail has hung
 o----------------------------o   up, proceed left. You won't get to run for  a
                                  very  long  time before  meeting  two  purple
Pseudoroids - Argoyle  and  Ugoyle. They look like twins. Really scary :(

 | - General Information: Megamerge into Model ZX once this battle starts.   |
 |   Model ZX's spin saber attack (Jump + UP + Saber) is great for dealing   |
 |   TONS of damage to the twins. The battle will be over in no time,        |
 |   probably before you have to use any of your SubTanks.                   |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Shuriken Share: The twins go to each their side of the screen, and      |
 |   start throwing shuriken stars to each other. Place yourself straight    |
 |   below one of them, then jump and start spin-slashing his belly! Does    |

 | - Summon Circle: They summon a dark circle in the middle of the area.     |
 |   Projectiles will come out of the circle, so stay in one of the corners  |
 |   and jump whenever it's needed.                                          |

 |                                                                           |
 +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

The [Argoyle DNA] is now yours, and can be used just like any other
Biometal/DNA/Trans-on/whatever the fancy name they use these days is. Great.
So, move a tiny bit left from the boss site. You'll see a datadisk being
covered in dirt. To get it, merge into Argoyle form, and hold the R button.
Now release it to summon a ghost form of Ugoyle. The Ghost moves over to where
the datadisk is, and takes it. Great, now you have [Datadisk B04]. Move to the
left end of the area, and above the gate there, you will find [Datadisk E05].
Take the disk, then head inside the gate. Activate warp point, exit left.

Close to the beginning of this area, you can find a 1UP item on a ledge above
you. Just fly upwards using Queenbee to find it, then proceed left. Go to the
top of the red wall. Now, to your left you will see some spikes. You can
actually move into the wall just left of those spikes, but there is one problem
with doing so; there are spikes on the floor inside the wall. So, just merge
into Vulturon and fly into the wall, not touching the spikes. In there you will
find [Datadisk E46]! Grab the disk, then head outside of the wall again. Drop
down left of the red wall, and exit in the bottom left end.

At the beginning of the next area, you will see some yellow circles of light.
Don't touch them, as you'll get eaten by murder fish if you do! Instead,
Megamerge into Queenbee form, and from the entrance, fly straight right to find
[Datadisk E47] on a ledge. Now that you have that disk, go to the left end of
the area. There's two waterfalls there. Use Model L to swim up the rightmost
of those two waterfalls. You'll find a door at the top of the waterfall, and
inside the door, there is a [Life Up] item! Now head back outside and exit in
the left end, left of the two waterfalls.

--- WATERFALL RUINS 3 ---------------------------------------------------------


 o----------------------------o   Swim to the bottom of the room while in Model
 | ITEM CHECKLIST             |   L  form. At  the bottom,  use Chronoforce  to
 |                            |   swim past  all the  spikes. Once  in the left
 | Datadisk E30..........[  ] |   end, start swimming  upwards again to  find a
 |                            |   1UP and  a passage  leading left  into a  new
 o----------------------------o   room. Go  into that  new room  after grabbing
                                  the 1UP. Take the two E-crystal containers on
your right side  in  the next  room, then head left to two  moving spears. Left
of the two spears there is a datadisk, but we can't get it yet, so we'll return
here later on. Proceed left to find LOTS of moving spears. Slow down time using
Chronoforce, and head left past all the spears.

When you see a place with lots of stone blocks, break them by shooting at them,
head further left past more spears, then exit left. The next area has two doors
-- both of them in the middle of a waterfall. The upper door leads to a
sidequest named "Eliminate The Chabanos", while the lower one leads to a boss
battle. There's also a passage leading left from the two doors. First, head
through the passage leading left.

Now you're in a room with a ledge leading upwards, and a normal path leading
further left. Jump up on the ledge first to find some spikes and some lasers.
Morph into Vulturon form, and hover up into the laser above you. As long as you
keep on touching the laser while hovering, the spikes will keep down. So, still
using Vulturon, hover, and land between the two spikes. Once you're between
them, transform into Queenbee, and fly straight upwards from the spikes to find
[Datadisk E30]! Now, there's a lot of unexplored space in this room, but there
are no more items, and the gate in the left end just leads back to the
beginning of the stage. So, go back, exiting in the right end, so that you get
back to the waterfall with the two doors.

If you want to do the sidequest inside the upper door, do that, and if you
don't want to, just head through the lower door right away, like I'll do here
in the main walkthrough (sidequest section covers the sidequest)! Activate the
warp point inside the lowest door, then proceed left into the gate.

This stage is so long that it kind of gets out of hand for me! Anyway, just run
through the open room, and open the gate in the end. Time for a boss battle.

 |                                                                           |
 | Elemental weakness: ---                                                   |
 | Weak point: Opening, middle body                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - General Information: The only place you can hit and damage this boss is |
 |   the opening in the middle of its body. The opening only appears at      |
 |   certain times, so make sure to blast it once it appears. Using Model F  |
 |   and its buster edit can be useful, but so can charged buster shots from |
 |   Model ZX be. They're very powerful.                                     |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Falling leaves: What can I say? Leaves fall down from the sky, and      |
 |   they're slow. Just go to the right corner to avoid them. Easy.          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Spitfire: The boss shoots lots of venom beams at you. First he shoots   |
 |   towards the lowest part of the room, then upwards. Wall-jump to avoid   |
 |   the first shots, then just off the wall, towards the boss, to avoid     |
 |   the last part of the attack.                                            |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Tentacle Trap: The boss makes two tentacles appear in the right end of  |
 |   the room, then he sends out a heat-seeking venom beam. Just don't stand |
 |   still in the right corner, and you'll be fine. If you get caught, DASH! |
 |                                                                           |
 +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

In the next room, you'll hear an explosion, then you'll find Pandora and
Prometheus waiting for you. They're not happy, and have broken the computer
that Mikhail wanted you to check out earlier on. Too bad! Anyway, it sounds
like Prometheus and Pandora are planning to start fighting against their
master, Albert! Madness indeed! Well, now they escape. Ashe examines the
computer that the mad duo broke a moment ago, and finds the [Data File A].
There's a Transerver waiting for a little Mega girl just left from here! Go!
In the Transerver room, there's also a disk -- [Datadisk M03].

===============================================================================

First of all, to reach the Lab, go to the lower right end of Hunter's Camp 3.
Head through the green gate there, then go right once again in order to find a
Transerver that can only be used to travel to the lab -- nowhere else! So, go!

the right end where there is a yellow door   o-------------------------------o
and a ladder. Head through the yellow door
to find  some Crystals,  then go  back and climb up the ladder. You'll see a
1UP item that you can get by using Argoyle's  ghost move. So, get the 1UP and
proceed upwards, to the top of one last ladder.

In the next room, Ashe finds two open capsules and a message. The message
describes the fact that Prometheus and Pandora have actually been working for
Albert as slaves.. They're always needed to return to their capsules in order
to recharge their energy, and Albert controls the capsules.. Not good. Not good
for Prometheus and Pandora, anyway. And for me, since I like them.. Sorry! Me
will shut up now! Let's continue playing! Just right of the two capsules, there
is a gate and a [Datadisk B15]. Take the disk, then head through the gate.

Make your way through two small corridors.   o----------- Optional ----------o
You'll find a fuse  on the floor that  you   |                               |

 |   Also note that in general, it's smart to stay on the ledges in the      |
 |   upper part of the room, as Hedgeshock seldom moves all the way up there.|
 |                                                                           |
 | - Yellow Beams: Hedgeshock crawls into a small ball, and released lots    |
 |   of yellow circle-formed beams into the air. Keep your eyes open, and    |
 |   dash-jump in order to avoid being shocked to death.                     |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Sonic Roll: He rolls around on the floor, and bounces up to the ledges  |
 |   in the middle part of the room. Just dash away from him, and try to     |
 |   get a hit in with Model L's spear at the same time!                     |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Mouse Sisters: Hedgeshock summons several small mice. They pop up,      |
 |   and start panicking! You'll be happy to hear that the mice can be killed|
 |   off by simply slashing them once. So, do that. Slash them into          |
 |   mice meat.                                                              |
 |                                                                           |
 +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Believe me when I'm telling you that I'm tired of saying this kind of thing
after each and every boss battle -- The [Hedgeshock DNA] is now yours! Head
through the gate in the right end of the boss room now that you've mastered the
mad hedgehog's powers. Ashe finds [Data File B] in the next room, and takes it
with her. Exit in the right end again, after getting the Data File B item.

There's a narrow passage with some small blocks in here. Megamerge into
Hedgeshock form, and roll into the narrow passage by pressing DOWN + L. You'll
roll through the blocks, and get [Datadisk B11] at the same time. At the other
side of the passage, a Transerver is waiting for you. Activate it, save your
game, and deliver a mission report. Standard procedure, yes. Thomas sends you
an [Init. Key] now. It can be used to activate a special kind of Transerver...

Before finding that Transerver however, I'll take you with me for some datadisk
hunting. If you like optional datadisks, that is. If you don't really care
about optionals and that kind of stuff, just skip out on the next section, and
start reading at the beginning of the one that comes below it.

We're getting closer and closer to reaching the end of the game, so why don't
do some backtracking now, in order to collect some datadisks? Everything in
this section is completely optional, so just skip to the next section if you're
not interested in getting all the datadisks.

 |   pipe that can be broken in Oil Field Area 2. Normally it will break     |
 |   when you step on it, but with the Featherweight equipped, it won't!     |
 |   Crawl left from the pipe to find [Datadisk E19]. Remember to be in      |

Great work, dear reader! If you've been following the main walkthrough from the
very beginning, you should now have all of the datadisks in the whole game!
Except for two disks that are found in the final moments of the game, that is.
If you're like me, and like reading about stuff, you should head over to the
datadisk building in Hunter's Camp 1, and analyze all of your datadisks.
There's a lot of cool sprites and weird information stored in those disks.

                               Undersea Volcano                          [wa16]
===============================================================================

To get to the Undersea Volcano, which is the beginning of Master Albert's
hideout, just go to Biolab Area 3. The broken Transerver there can now be used
to transport over there, since you got the Init. Key from Mikhail. Once there,
head right through a gate. In the next room, there is a 1UP in the upper right
end, right of some spinning enemies. Take it, then drop into the water. Head
right through the next room, which is a huge open area with falling lava
stones. Just avoid the stones by dashing.

This is another open area with falling stones. Make your way to the right end,
and drop down into the hole there to find a bunker-like corridor system.
Continue right into the corridors to find a gate in the lower right end.

Close to the entrance of this third area, you'll find two gates. One leading
left and one leading right. It doesn't really matter which one you choose, so
take the left one, if you feel like. You'll have to make your way through
another corridor system, and drop down through the air to reach the bottom.
Just keep on going the only way you can go, until you find a boss gate.

Watch the cut-scene with Albert, Pandora and Prometheus. Looks like Albert is
up against two traitors! That's good for us, but really bad for Albert. After
dealing with his master, Prometheus explains that he and Pandora have been
using Ashe as a tool ever since the beginning of the game. Ashe was the one
that tracked down Master Albert so that Prometheus and Pandora could have their
revenge against him. But, all isn't good -- now they want to destroy everything
around them, including you! Fight them off! And make sure to remember using
your SubTanks! Without them, this is going to be hard.

 | - General Information: This is a very stylish battle where you fight      |
 |   against both Pandora and Prometheus at the very same time. There's a    |
 |   lot of different strategies that you can use, but merging into Model    |
 |   H is a very good idea, as you'll be able to dodge a lot of attacks      |
 |   by dashing and jumping around. In addition, Model H's saber does a      |
 |   good deal of damage to the two Mega Men when it's used. Movement is     |
 |   the most important this in this battle; you should never stand still!   |
 |                                                                           |
 | PANDORA'S MOVES                                                           |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Circling Spears: Pandora places herself in the middle of the room, and  |
 |   summons several green spears that start spinning around her small body. |
 |   After a while, she'll start releasing spears towards you. Use Model H   |
 |   to dash-jump upwards, jumping over the spears! Make sure to slash       |
 |   Pandora whenever you get the chance.                                    |
 |                                                                           |
 | PROMETHEUS'S MOVES                                                        |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Pillars of Flame: Prometheus stands in the middle of the room, and      |
 |   summons two huge flame pillars. They start spinning in and out of       |
 |   the background. While in the background, the pillars aren't dangerous   |
 |   to you. So, run past the pillars while they are in the background.      |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Brutal Pillars: This one looks like the previous move, but the          |
 |   pillars won't start spinning. Instead, they come straight towards       |
 |   you. Attack the pillars in order to avoid taking damage.                |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Mole Flames: Prometheus places himself in the middle of the room and    |
 |   sticks something into the ground. Soon after, lots of small flames      |
 |   start popping up from the ground, like moles! If you're using Model H   |
 |   avoiding them won't be a problem -- just air-dash!                      |
 |                                                                           |
 | DUAL CRUSH MOVES                                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Combo Rush: They both appear at the same time. Keep your eyes on        |
 |   Prometheus, as he will slash at you with his saber. Pandora just        |
 |   flies around, but don't touch her, as doing so is dangerous. Try        |
 |   dash-jumping to avoid Prometheus's slash, and attack Pandora while      |
 |   you're still in the air.                                                |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Spike Hell & Air Drop: First Pandora appears. She starts sending lots   |
 |   of small spikes and electro-beams around in the air. Do your best to    |
 |   dodge them, and attack her with your saber at the same time. When       |
 |   the spikes and beams are about to go away, Prometheus will come         |

Prometheus and Pandora aren't dead yet! However, they don't want to fight more.
Instead they start explaining about how Master Albert used Legion as a front
for finding and choosing people to become Mega Men, then letting them fight and
destroy each other for his own amusement. And now, things get even worse!
Master Albert wasn't dead at all -- the man Prometheus killed was a decoy! The
whole place starts collapsing, and Ashe escapes back to the Hunter's Camp. Make
sure to save your game while you have the chance. Now head outside of the
Transerver room for another cut-scene. Vent/Aile appears again too! He/she says
that there is no turning back once you see him/her again, so go fill all of
your SubTanks, and collect some 1UPs, then speak with Vent/Aile again. Watch
the cut-scene, then prepare for the final stage.

Head into the opening just right of where you start out. Vent/Aile and the
other Hunters won't follow you, as this is a one-man/girl mission! Run right
through a corridor system, and when you see lots of blocks in the air, use
Model F's Megaton Punch to break them as usual. Proceed further right to find a
1UP item on some blocks hanging in the ceiling. Just right of the 1UP items,
there are lots of blocks on the floor, guarded by some galleons. Break the
blocks to find a narrow passage that you can access using Hedgeshock. Roll
through the passage to find a big energy pack, the exit the passage in the
right end. Once you're at the end of the narrow passage, proceed right.

Now you're in the second main area of Ouroboros -- it's a fancy looking
corridor with a red mat on the floor. Albert suddenly pops up, and introduces
some friends.. All of the Pseudoroid bosses you've beaten earlier. You'll have
to fight them all again, so make sure your SubTanks are filled. Now head into
the next room to find an elevator. At the top and bottom floors, there are
transporters that you have to access. There's one boss waiting for behind each
transporter, and you have to beat them all. Use the boss guides in the main
walkthrough if you need help taking them all down.

NOTE: You'll want to save as many SubTanks for later as you can, so if you run
out of energy during one of the eight Pseudoroid battles, it's generally
smarter to just die and lose a 1UP than to use the energy stored in your
SubTanks. That's just a tip though -- what you do is your own choice.

After beating all eight bosses, proceed right to find a room with lots of
special blocks. What makes the blocks special, is that you can break them by
attack them, but then, after some seconds, they come back. If you're still
standing at the space a block reappears at, you will die. So, break blocks,
then quickly proceed to a place where there are no blocks. Model H is great to
use in the first part of the room, by the way. Continue going right through
this room until you have to drop down. Down here you will see a purple Galleon
hanging from the ceiling. Kill him and break the blocks hanging in the ceiling
just right of the Galleon. Above those blocks, you will find [Datadisk B02].
You'll also find [Datadisk B03] near the middle of the area, by using Queenbee
form to fly upwards from the spike blocks there.

Shortly after the place where you got the disk, lots of spikes blocks will
start appearing. From here on, using Vulturon is recommended, as there'll be a
lot of places where you'll be able to slide below or over spiked blocks that
are much harder to pass while using other models. Just keep making your way to
the right until you find the boss gate.

 |                                                                           |
 | - General Information: There is a very easy strategy you can use to win   |
 |   this battle. At the beginning, use Chronoforce to slow down time, then  |
 |   quickly merge into Model ZX, and run over to the lower right end where  |
 |   the boss's vunerable point is. Start slashing like crazy! You'll take   |
 |   damage if the boss uses its Black Portal move, but the other attacks    |
 |   can easily be avoided, and the battle will be over in no time.          |
 |                                                                           |
 | PHASE I                                                                   |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Head Scrap: The boss puts its head into the ground, and grinds it       |
 |   along the floor. Shoot at it to make it flip up so that you can get     |
 |   below it without touching it.                                           |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Black Portal: The boss summons a portal and tries to suck you into      |
 |   it. At the same time, it fires beams. Dash away from the portal, and    |
 |   do your best to avoid the beams too! The beams don't do a lot of damage |
 |   though, so it's better to touch them than to be sucked into the portal. |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Ground Fire: A huge fire circle scatters into several small flames      |
 |   that land on the floor. Stand between the small flames to avoid being   |
 |   burned into hamburger meat.                                             |
 |                                                                           |
 | PHASE II                                                                  |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Missile Launch: He shoots a couple of missiles towards you. Just do     |
 |   a quick jump to avoid them. Not really hard, actually.                  |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Energy Circles: Circles of energy are shot at you. Dash away from       |
 |   them if they get too close.                                             |
 |                                                                           |

 +----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+
 |                                                                           |
 | Elemental weakness: ---                                                   |
 | Weak point: Albert's body                                                 |
 |                                                                           |
 | - General Information: Using Model ZX is a great choice in this battle    |
 |   too. When you're attacking Albert and his defensive pods, make sure     |
 |   to use the ZX Spin Attack (Jump + Saber + UP), and not just normal      |
 |   slashes. By spinning, you'll do a ton of damage, and should be able     |
 |   to finish off Albert without using SubTanks at all. Not many, at least. |
 |   To get able to attack Albert himself, use your saber on his defensive   |
 |   pods first, so that they start to malfunction.                          |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Tornado Quadro: Albert summons four machines that generate tornados.    |
 |   Use your saber to take out one of them before you take damage from      |
 |   blown around like a leaf.                                               |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Claymore: He summons a huge claymore, and gives it a swing. Once you    |
 |   see the claymore, dash behind Albert, and attack his back while he's    |
 |   busy swinging the giant sword. Poor, Slow Albert!                       |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Slowdown: Just like Chronoforce, Albert is able to mess around with     |
 |   time. When he uses this move, all of his moves will be faster than      |
 |   before. You're lucky if he doesn't use this one.                        |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Ground Puch: He punches into the ground with a huge flame hand. Just    |
 |   dash away from him once you see the hand appear. Best to stay safe.     |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Sniper Aim: You'll see a lock-on aim appear on the screen. This means   |
 |   that Albert is aiming for you with his cannon, so dash around, and      |
 |   jump too, in order to avoid being hit by his shot.                      |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Ground Grind: Albert crashes into the ground and comes towards you.     |
 |   Just stay in one of the corners to avoid his body. He doesn't move all  |
 |   the way to the far corners.                                             |
 |                                                                           |
 +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Albert goes down, and the whole place starts collapsing. Things get kind of
over-the-top caotic, but in the end, Ashe manages to escape! She does faint
afterwards though, and wakes up in the Hunter's Camp later on, just like at the
very beginning of ZX Advent. Head outside again once you're back in control.
Vent is waiting for you, and explains that Albert's airship went down with a
huge SUPER BOOM! Everyone's happy, and you get to see some nice artwork. After
that, it's time for taking a look at the credits. The people over at Inti have
done such a good job that you kind of need to watch their names roll across the
screen. They deserve that, don't they?

After the credits have rolled, the game will tell you that the Expert
difficulty setting and the Quiz Advent/Model a mini games have been unlocked.
Make sure to save your game when asked too, if you don't want the unlocked
features to vanish until the next time you complete the game! That's all for
now. You'll probably see me again some other time, though. I don't plan on
retiring from writing walkthroughs just yet, so chances are I'll be covering
the next game in the ZX series as well, if one is ever released.

    ~ Thanks a lot for using my work! I hope you liked it! See you around!! :)

                               SubTank Locations                         [mi01]
===============================================================================

If you've ever played a MegaMan game earlier, chances are you already know what
a SubTank is, and that these items are incredibly valuable. SubTanks are used
to store more energy at times when your normal energy gauge is already filled.
So, when you collect energy while your main energy gauge is filled, it will be
stored in these tanks. Once you need more energy again, simply access the pause
menu, and choose one of your filled SubTanks to transfer your stored energy
straight into the main energy gauge! Very handy during boss battles.

 .------------------------.--------------------------------------------------.
 | SUBTANK UP LOCATION    | HOW TO GET IT                                    |

 | Arctic Ice Floe 2      | After you have fought off the mini-boss in       |
 |                        | Arctic Ice Floe, you will enter an area with     |
 |                        | many ice blocks. In the middle of this area      |
 |                        | you will find some metal poles. Use Rosepark     |
 |                        | form to climb up these metal poles. At the       |
 |                        | top you will find the first SubTank.             |
 |                        |                                                  |
 +------------------------+--------------------------------------------------+
 | Legion HQ 2            | In this area, you will find several air          |
 |                        | boards. A tiny bit right of the first board,     |
 |                        | there is a corridor with purple Galleons in.     |
 |                        | Go to the right end of this corridor, and slide  |
 |                        | down the wall. You'll find a breakable wall      |
 |                        | on your left side down here. Continue a tiny     |
 |                        | bit right from this wall, and you'll find yet    |
 |                        | another breakable wall. Shoot it to bits, in     |
 |                        | order to find a room with spikes in. Dash-jump   |
 |                        | over the spikes to find the second SubTank.      |
 |                        |                                                  |
 +------------------------+--------------------------------------------------+
 | Floating Ruins 2       | To get this SubTank, you'll have to complete a   |
 |                        | sidequest named "Find The Ancient Artifacts".    |
 |                        | Check the sidequests section for a full guide.   |
 |                        |                                                  |
 +------------------------+--------------------------------------------------+
 | Mysterious Lab 3       | In the right end of the room with all the        |
 |                        | fuses, there is a boss gate and a ladder. Climb  |
 |                        | up the ladder to find another fuse. Push the     |
 |                        | fuse down towards the boss gate, where there is  |
 |                        | a container. Once the fuse has been set into     |
 |                        | the container, climb back up the ladder to find  |
 |                        | a yellow door that has been unlocked. Near the   |
 |                        | door, Datadisk B14 can be found. Inside the      |
 |                        | yellow door, use Argoyle's ghost move in order   |
 |                        | to get the SubTank.                              |
 |                        |                                                  |

                               Life Up Locations                         [mi02]
===============================================================================

Life Up items are often overlooked by players not familiar with the MegaMan
series, as they're well-hidden, and the because of the fact that the game never
really does a good job of explaining what these items are used for. There's no
encouragement coming from the game, but let me tell you, you should REALLY
search for these items, and collect them all. "Why" you might ask. My answer is
actually pretty good: Life Up items will extend your energy gauge, making it
possible to store more energy, so that you can take more damage before being
defeated. Here's a diagram that helps you find all the Life Up items:

 .------------------------.--------------------------------------------------.
 | LIFE UP LOCATION       | HOW TO GET IT                                    |

 | Tower of Verdure 3     | After fighting the Spidrill boss in this level,  |
 |                        | you'll end up in Tower of Verdure 3, a place     |
 |                        | where you must wall-jump a long way upwards in   |
 |                        | order to proceed. At the top, after the          |
 |                        | wall-jumping, you will find a huge gray wall     |
 |                        | that will start collapsing once you touch it.    |
 |                        |                                                  |
 |                        | Do a dash-jump to get to the RIGHT side of this  |
 |                        | wall, then quickly wall-jump on it all the way   |
 |                        | to the top of it. You have to do it fast, so     |
 |                        | that you're able to wall-jump upwards before     |
 |                        | the whole wall collapses. At the top, you will   |
 |                        | find the precious Life Up!                       |

 |                        | other. Go to the second set of two doors, and    |
 |                        | enter the rightmost door. In this room there are |
 |                        | some spikes that you can fly between using the   |
 |                        | Vulturon form. At the other side of the spiked   |
 |                        | passage, you will find a Life Up item.           |
 |                        |                                                  |

 | Control Center 1       | In the right end of the first room in Control    |
 |                        | Center 1, there is a pole. Climb it with your    |
 |                        | Rosepark form. Open the gate at the top, then    |
 |                        | climb to the top of the poles in the next room.  |
 |                        | At the top, merge into Model A and grab the      |
 |                        | Life Up item found up there.                     |
 |                        |                                                  |
 +------------------------+--------------------------------------------------+
 | Waterfall Ruins 2      | Go to the left end of the room where there       |
 |                        | are yellow circles and fish that want to eat     |
 |                        | you. Use Model L to swim up one of the waterfalls|
 |                        | here, to find a door with a Life Up inside.      |

                               Biometal Upgrades                         [mi03]
===============================================================================

Biometal Upgrades are hidden at various places, just like SubTanks and Life Up
items. Once you collect a Biometal Upgrade, your Biometal Gauge will be
extended. An extended Biometal Gauge means that you will be able to use your
Biometal models' powers (such as flying, or special attacks) for a longer time
before having to wait in order to recharge the gauge. Collecting these upgrades
will also make it possible to extend Biometal Model F's "Buster Edit" feature.

 | Highway 1              | After passing the first gap in this area, the    |
 |                        | path splits into one top path, and one lower     |
 |                        | path. Drop down to the lower one and merge into  |
 |                        | Model F to break the blocks that are in your     |
 |                        | way. You'll find a switch after doing so.        |
 |                        | Use Chronofore's Time Bomb move to slow down     |
 |                        | time, then activate the switch.                  |
 |                        |                                                  |
 |                        | Quickly merge back into another, faster model,   |
 |                        | and get back up on the top path. Run right       |
 |                        | until you see an open gate. Be quick and run     |
 |                        | into that gate before it closes. The upgrade     |
 |                        | can be found in there.                           |

 +------------------------+--------------------------------------------------+
 | Oil Field 2            | Use Model F to break the damaged pipe at the     |
 |                        | beginning of the first biker area in Oil Field 2.|
 |                        | Drop down to the bottom, and run right past a    |
 |                        | door to find a narrow passage. Crawl through it  |
 |                        | in human/Reploid form to find this upgrade.      |
 |                        |                                                  |

 | Quarry 3               | At the beginning of the mini-boss battle against |
 |                        | the green bulldozer, use Model H to air-dash     |
 |                        | to the bulldozer's back. Now slow down time      |
 |                        | using Chronoforce's Time Bomb move, and break    |
 |                        | the bulldozer using a powerful model such as ZX. |
 |                        | Start making your way right, and you'll see the  |
 |                        | Biometal Upgrade above you. Use Model F to break |
 |                        | the blocks that are protecting the upgrade.      |
 |                        |                                                  |

 | Biolab 2               | Biolab 2 starts with you having to pull up a     |
 |                        | normal barrel. Continue from here until you      |
 |                        | find a second barrel. Pull it up like usual,     |
 |                        | then make sure to PUSH IT BACK DOWN using any    |
 |                        | model (just step on the barrel). Now move right  |
 |                        | until you find another barrel. Pull it up from   |
 |                        | the ground to make lots of water flow into the   |
 |                        | room. Go back towards the previous barrel in     |
 |                        | order to find the upgrade.                       |

 | - Trigger: In Hunter's Camp 3, you'll find a Hunter named Nicol, standing |
 |   close to the top right end of the area. Speak to him twice in order     |
 |   to borrow the F. Range Key from him. Now enter the shooting range       |

 | - Guide: The goal here in the shooting range is to kill 100 flying        |
 |   baddies before the time runs out. Start shooting at them once they      |
 |   enter the screen. Use the buster to do this. Once they start appearing  |
 |   more frequently, pull out Model A's homing shot, and start locking      |
 |   onto several enemies at once, taking down at least five enemies per     |
 |   shot. Once you win, talk to Nicol again to get 100 E-crystals from him! |

 |   talk to the bartender, Jim. He has heard of a love fruit that grows     |
 |   somewhere in the Tower of Verdure. That's where Rosepark used to live.  |

 |   Reploid here. His name is Kidd. Give him 100 E-crystals, then go        |
 |   out of the house. Come back, and repeat the process until you've        |
 |   paid Kidd 600 E-crystals. After paying him a total of 600 crystals,     |
 |   you'll find a door where Kidd is standing. Go inside to meet Nick,      |
 |   an old Reploid. Talk to him a couple of times to get this quest.        |

 |   dash-jump from the nearby wall to grab them! Head back to Nick now.     |
 |   He will start selling E-crystals later on, and if you examine his       |

 |   Now go to the beginning of Oil Field 2. There's a pipe on the ground    |
 |   that can be broken using a Ground Breaker attack. So, break it, then    |
 |   drop down through the hole to find a door at the bottom. Talk to the    |
 |   Hunter in here. He needs you to find his wrench!                        |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Guide: Wall-jump upwards just left of the Hunter. Jump onto the lowest  |
 |   moving block, then time your next jump to get onto the moving block     |
 |   above. Once on this second block, transform into Buckfire, and do a     |
 |   charged jump straight upwards between the spikes. Once you reach        |
 |   the next block that moves in a horizontal motion, be quick and          |
 |   do another charge jump upwards. You'll find the Wrench up here ^_^      |

 | * [L Tank]: Go back to the left end of Floating Ruins 1, and air-dash     |
 |   to the top of the hill there. Just left of a purple Galleon up on the   |
 |   hill you will find this L Tank item.                                    |

 | * [Pinwheel]: In the middle of Floating Ruins 2, there is a gray          |
 |   pillar with many platforms. Below this pillar, there are cyclones.      |
 |   Hover down into the middle of the cyclones using Model H in order       |
 |   to find the Pinwheel.                                                   |

 | * [Light Bulb]: In Floating Ruins 4, just left of the boss gate, you      |
 |   can hover down into a gap. Keep hovering left using Model H in order    |
 |   to find the Light Bulb on a ledge down here.                            |

 | * [Old Balancer]: Climb up the wall in the left end of Floating Ruins 3.  |
 |   Use Bifrost to eat through the blocks up here, and enter the cave at    |
 |   the top in order to fin the balancer. Now return to Meg .               |

 |   only need to find one flower, and not all three of them. Here are the   |
 |   three locations, but remember, you only need to find ONE flower:        |

 | * Tower of Verdure 3: At the top of the falling pillar, head left.        |
 |   You'll find the flower in the corner, on the floor. Close to impossible |
 |   to miss this one.                                                       |

 |   find a door close to a waterfall. And a flower too!                     |
 |                                                                           |

 |   below a cyclone to find a 1UP item. The flower can be found right       |
 |   next to that cyclone.                                                   |

 | - Trigger: In the Scrapyard 2 area, there is a room where two Galleons    |
 |   are hanging in the middle of the room from some pipes. This room has    |
 |   a gate in the upper end, and one in the lower end. There is also a door |
 |   in the right end of the room. Go into that right door, and keep running |
 |   until you find two new doors. Enter the leftmost of those two doors     |
 |   in order to find a man named James. He wants some scrap parts. Below    |
 |   you'll find a list of all the items needed.                             |

 | * [Ignition]: The Ignition is found in the room where the two purple      |
 |   Galleons were hanging in the middle of the room (Scrapyard 2). Go       |
 |   back to that room, and open the gate in the top end of the area.        |
 |   The Ignition can be found just behind the gate.                         |
 |                                                                           |
 | * [Titanium Alloy]: In one of the first rooms in Scrapyard 3, there is    |
 |   a ladder hanging above you at the entrance. In the right end of that    |
 |   room you will find a Titanium Alloy just right of a fake energy pack.   |
 |                                                                           |
 | * [Engine]: In the last big room in Scrapyard 3, there is a narrow        |
 |   passage just left of the entrance door. While in human/Reploid form,    |
 |   climb through that hole. Make your way to the top, and open the door    |
 |   there to find a room with lots of shielded enemies flying around.       |
 |   Kill them all, and use Queenbee form to fly to the right end of         |
 |   the room. Between some spikes in the right end you will find [Engine]!  |

 |   Hunter's Camp 3. Once there, go find Owl, the fat hunter that is        |
 |   always stuffing his face with food. Owl has a train, but wants you      |
 |   to give him a pudding in exchange for it. Ooh, I want pudding too! :)   |

 |   To get the pudding, head back to Hunter's Camp 4 where Kidd has been    |
 |   digging earlier. Enter the first door in there to find Nick's café.     |
 |   Open his fridge to find the Pudding. If you haven't found the           |
 |   Shortcake item yet, you'll find that one too, by examining the fridge   |
 |   several times. Now talk to Owl again to get the [Model Train]. Give     |
 |   the train to Jarke. You'll be able to see it at the shelf in the last   |
 |   room of Hunter's Camp 4, as the train is a shelf item.                  |

 |   a waterfall. Head inside the top door to meet a weird man named Peter!  |
 |   Peter-san has a quest for you -- he wants you to get rid of something   |
 |   he calls "Chabanos". Chabanos are small pigs that Peter wants you to    |
 |   find and kill. He's kind of evil, but you still have to follow his      |
 |   order if you want the quest reward. There's 50 pigs, but they're not    |
 |   really spread around at a great number of places -- they like to stay   |
 |   together with their friends, you see. Their locations are as follows.   |
 |                                                                           |

 | * Waterfall Ruins 3 - Just inside the door left of Peter himself. Head    |
 |   in there and kill 'em all. Make sure to go and see Peter again now, in  |
 |   order to make the rest of the pigs spawn in other stages.               |
 |                                                                           |
 | * Legion HQ 1 - In the upper left end of the second room with lots of     |
 |   stairs in, there is a door. Head inside to find a group of piggies.     |
 |                                                                           |
 | * Scrapyard 2 - These pigs can be found in the corridor leading to        |
 |   James, the old man that makes boosters for the Highway race. Make sure  |
 |   to kill the pigs in both the upper and lower part of the corridor.      |
 |                                                                           |
 | * Highway 1 - First, use Queenbee to fly up to the top of this area.      |
 |   There are several blue bridges high up in the air, and the pigs are     |
 |   crawling on those bridges. Kill them all off, then drop down to where   |
 |   you got the Biometal Upgrade earlier. Just right of that place, there   |
 |   are a couple of pigs running around, protected by a strong wall.        |
 |   Transform into Bifrost, and bite through the wall, killing the pigs in  |
 |   the process.                                                            |
 |                                                                           |
 | * Oil Field 2 - There's a group of pigs in the sand below the first       |
 |   breakable pipe, so bust the pipe up using Model F, and kill the pigs    |
 |   with cold blood. After doing so, there's more pigs for you to kill in   |
 |   this area. Jump back up from where you killed the pigs a second ago,    |
 |   and find the poles that you had to climb on in Rosepark form the first  |
 |   time you visited the Oil Field stage. Just left of those poles, there   |
 |   are pigs behind a wall. Eat them using Bifrost's bite attack.           |
 |                                                                           |
 | * Floating Ruins 3 - The first group can be found in the middle of the    |
 |   area, on one of the floating platforms. Pretty much impossible to miss  |
 |   this group. There is a second group in the lower right end of the area. |
 |   Fly down there using Queenbee. You'll see the pigs behind some blocks.  |
 |   Shoot the pigs to death while in Queenbee form. She can actually fire   |

 | - Trigger: After completing the Highway stage, go to Highway 3 and talk   |
 |   to Burt. Pay him 400 crystals when he asks for them, then exit the      |
 |   area, and come back again. Now you can start the first race!            |
 |                                                                           |
 | - Guide: The races are easy at first, then they get harder. You can       |
 |   win the first race by simply driving straight forwards, but from the    |
 |   second race, you'll want to get some booster items from the             |
 |   "Recycle Junk" sidequest. You can get new boosters once you've used up  |
 |   the one you have. Why would you get boosters, you ask? Because they     |
 |   give you a speed boost during the race!                                 |
 |                                                                           |
 |   It's recommended to use Hedgeshock during the races, as his charged     |
 |   attacks are effective at removing the fires that are blocking your way. |
 |   You can also try using Model H, but Hedgeshock is recommended. G'luck!  |
 |                                                                           |

===============================================================================

There's a number of unlockables in MegaMan ZX Advent. Small features that
somehow extend the life of the game. At least if you like the unlockables, they
do. Like with the unlockables in the first MegaMan ZX, I'm not really a fan of
them, but of course I'll list them for you anyway. Here they are:

                              Pseudoroid Medals                          [mi06]
===============================================================================

There are 24 Pseudoroid medals that you can get by re-fighting the Pseudoroid
bosses in MegaMan ZX Advent, and defeating them in certain ways. In other
words, there are special conditions that have to be fulfilled before you get
your medals. There are 8 bosses that have medals you can earn, and each of
those bosses have 3 medals each. In order to get the medals, you will first
have to play until the late stages of the main game, then talk to the Hunters
ontop of the houses in the Hunter's Camp, and the ones in the final level.
They'll have requests for you, wanting you to take out the bosses in special
ways, so that you can earn your medals.

When you get a medal, you'll be able to see it on display in the storage room
inside the pub in Hunter's Camp 1. Once you have all 24 medals, start a new
savegame, and play until the point where you usually receive Model A on the
Train level. At this point, you'll receive a "new" Biometal -- Model a.

                                  Datadisks                              [ku01]
===============================================================================

Datadisks are small items that can be found scattered around at all kinds of
locations. In pretty much all stages, there's a number of datadisks hidden,
free for you to collect, if you're willing to spend time on searching for them.
Once you've collected a datadisk, you can head back to Hunter's Camp 1 and
access "building 2". In there, you'll meet the scientist named Gary. By
speaking to Gary, you can borrow his disk analyzer machine. Each datadisk
contains one or more graphical sprites. Some are animated, some are not.

What's even more interesting, is that the disks contain a fair amount of text.
The texts are very interesting, as they make it easier to understand how things
in the MegaMan universe really work. In this section, I've written down all of
the text. To find the location of any specifit disk, just search for the disk
number by using the CTRL + F function. For example, if you search for "B07",
you'll find the location of Datadisk B07 in the main walkthrough.

                                 Monthly Items                           [ku05]
===============================================================================

At the very bottom of Oil Field Area 3, there are two rooms guarded by a
Raider. If you pay the Raider 300 E-crystals (100EC x 3 or 300EC x 1), he will
open the doors and let you inside. However, you can only access the first of
the two rooms without first completing the main game. So, in general, you
should complete the main game before investigating these two rooms. Anyway,
each month, a secret "monthly item" will appear in one of the two rooms. To
get all of the items without having to wait a whole year, you can edit your
calendar settings in the Nintendo DS dashboard.

                              Greetings & Credits                        [ex02]
===============================================================================

 - ErHu is a great person, for sending me a quick guide covering the Model
   Train quest, only hours after my walkthrough was posted online.

 - Thanks to Firestorm ZERO for telling me about the Ice Boots.

 - Benny Huang sent me a mail regarding one of Desert Aspis attacks. It's
   possible to avoid being frozen during this battle, and I hadn't noticed
   myself. Information about this has been added now :)
 
 - Thanks to Bhelmont on the GameFAQs forums, for making me realize that I'd
   made a mistake in the medals section. It was all because of my less than
   perfect skills with the English language! Thanks!

 - Night Caster mailed me a hint about using Hedgeshock during the Highway Race
   sidequests, and after trying it, I can confirm that he's more effective than
   Model H, who I recommended before this update. Thanks, Night Caster =)

                                Version History                          [ex04]
===============================================================================

 Version 0.0 - December 01, 2007
 -------------------------------
 It's about time now. I haven't written a game guide since Brave Story: New
 Traveler on the PlayStation Portable. So, why not try putting together one for
 MegaMan ZX Advent? Got the game in the mail from Canada some weeks ago, and
 playing through it was quite fun. Not really as great as the first ZX game,
 but much better than anything else I've been playing lately. So, today I
 decided to start writing, made a Table of Contents outline, and put together
 an introduction. I'll probably work slowly with this guide though, as I'm busy
 with a lot of different stuff these days. Well, best of luck to me.

 Version 0.1 - December 30, 2007
 -------------------------------
 Been doing a lot of work without putting anything into the version history
 section. What's covered now are all of the stages from the beginning of the
 game, to the end of Floating Ruins. Lots of items and sidequests have been
 written down as well -- making good, slow progress.

 Version 0.2 - December 31, 2007
 -------------------------------
 Written some more today, covered the entire Scrapyard level. The next section
 in the main walkthrough will probably be about some optional items that you
 can finally get easily once you have the Vulturon form you get from the
 Scrapyard. Also, I've done more sidequests today as well. Now however, I
 should go out and do some fireworks. New Year's Eve and all tonight. Bai!

 Version 0.3 - January 06, 2008
 ------------------------------
 I've done enough to justify an Internet release now, I think. It's been too
 many months since last time I upped a new guide to the net, so this feels kind
 of good. There's still a lot missing from both the main walkthrough and pretty
 much all of the other sections, though. I'll try to put enough work into this
 whole thing so that I can do another release next weekend or something.

 Version 0.4 - January 14, 2008
 ------------------------------
 I broke the 300kb limit today, so there's a lot of information in here. I
 think there is, at least. Anyway, I've covered all the main stages, and
 included all the datadisks in the main walkthrough. What I still need to do,
 is to add all of those datadisk locations to the datadisks section. I also
 need to add all of the remaining sidequests, and there's a lot of those.
 Anyway, I hope you find this version of the guide useful, as it does at least
 cover the whole main game. Yup, potato! If anyone wants to help me, and get
 their nick included in the credits section, this is your chance!! Please! :P

 Version 0.5 - January 16, 2008
 ------------------------------
 Added a couple of more sidequests. I still need to add the final quests, as
 well as descriptions explaining about the 24 boss medals you can get.

 Version 0.7 - January 19, 2008
 ------------------------------
 Added information on the medals. A couple of sidequests are missing. I'll
 probably add those sometime before January ends, or in early February. Right
 now I'm just tired. See you.

 Version 1.0 - February 12, 2008
 ------------------------------
 Finally I've reached Version 1.0. This means that the guide can be described
 as complete. Updates from now on will be minor ones, and most likely, they
 will only be done when I get stuff submitted through E-mail or MSN. I hope you
 enjoyed reading this guide -- I spent a lot of time on writing it. Bye, bye ^^
 
 Version 1.1 - March 21, 2008
 ----------------------------
 Fixed a mistake in the medals section. Waah!
 
 Version 1.2 - April 09, 2008
 ----------------------------
 Changed the guide for the Highway Race sidequests. Nothing more than that (:
