    Mega Man IV's storyline, from the instruction manual...
    
    TERROR FROM OUT OF THE SKY!
    
      The roar of a flying saucer shatters an otherwise peaceful day in the city!
    Gliding to a halt high above the city's skyscrapers, a small hatch on the
    underside of the saucer slides open and a tiny radio beacon begins to send a
    sinister new signal.
    
      Suddenly, hundreds of deactivated robots at the World Robot Exposition burst
    to life and begin destroying everything in mad rampage toward the center of
    the city!
    
      Watching the destruction unfold on his video monitor, Wily lets out a small
    laugh as he turns his attention to the robots who are now assembling in the
    city below. Scanning the thousands of robots awaiting his orders, Wily
    slammed his fists onto the control panel as he realizes one robot is free
    from the effects of his mind control device--Mega Man is free!

    This section is a general overview of Mega Man's weapons.
    
    ---------------
    Mega Buster (P)
    ---------------
    Received From: N/A
    
      Your basic weapon. Can be charged to fire a more powerful blast. Also has
    unlimited energy!
    
      There is a method you can do to "upgrade" the Mega Buster! Once you get a
    "Game Over," select the option "Continue." When you have used several
    continues (I don't recall how many, but I think it's about 3), you will be
    teleported back to the Lab. Dr. Right will give an upgrade for your basic
    weapon, the Mega Buster. When you charge it up, the blast will be a bit larger
    and will cause more damage.
    
    --------------
    Rush Coil (RC)
    --------------
    Received From: Toad Man
    
      Use Rush to jump to higher ledges and areas.
    
    ---------------
    Rain Flush (TO)
    ---------------
    Received From: Toad Man
    
      Launches a capsule into the air and then showers rain all over the screen.
    Useful for destroying enemies you can't reach.
    
    ------------------
    Flash Stopper (BR)
    ------------------
    Received From: Bright Man
    
      Freezes certain things on the screen. You can then fire at the enemies.
    
    -----------------
    Pharaoh Shot (PH)
    -----------------
    Received From: Pharaoh Man
    
      A pretty useful weapon. Can be fired in multiple directions and can also be
    charged up for bigger hit. The charged hit will use more weapon energy.
    
    -------------------
    Ring Boomerang (RI)
    -------------------
    Received From: Ring Man
    
      Like the name says, this weapon can be used to grab objects like a boomerang.
    
    ---------
    Beat (BE)
    ---------
    How to Obtain: Collect the B, E, A, and T parts from the stages of the first
                   four Robot Masters.
    
      This mechanical bird flies around to destroy your enemies. It works against
    basic enemies, but it won't do too much damage against major enemies, though.
    
    --------------------
    Ballade Cracker (BA)
    --------------------
    Received From: Ballade
    
      Like the Pharaoh Shot, this bomb can be launched in multiple directions...
    
    -------------
    Rush Jet (RJ)
    -------------
    Received From: Charge Man
    
      Use Rush to fly above the ground, but it only goes straight ahead. If it
    hits a wall, Rush will teleport out off screen.
    
    ----------------
    Crystal Eye (CR)
    ----------------
    Received From: Crystal Man
    
      Fires a crystal ball, which splits into three smaller balls when it hits a
    wall. I believe that the large crystal will cause more damage than the small
    ones will...
    
    ----------------
    Napalm Bomb (NA)
    ----------------
    Received From: Napalm Man
    
      Fires a little bomb that rolls forward and explodes. It also bounces off of
    objects.
    
    ----------------
    Power Stone (ST)
    ----------------
    Received From: Stone Man
    
      Fires three stones in a counter-clockwise direction. The rocks will
    gradually move outward.
    
    ----------------
    Charge Kick (CH)
    ----------------
    Received From: Charge Kick
    
      When you slide, a little barrier forms in front of you which damages enemies
    that you hit. Useful for defeating enemies that travel on the ground.

    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      At the end of almost every stage, you can go back to Dr. Right's Lab to
    purchase some items with P-Chips. Some of the items there cannot be found
    anywhere else, so stock up on them if you can! Here's a price list for the
    items you can buy with the P-Chips:
    
    ----------------------
    Item              Cost
    ----------------------
    Small E-Tank     20 PC
    Large E-Tank     60 PC
    W-Tank           30 PC
    S-Tank          120 PC
    Weapon Charger   80 PC
    1-Up             50 PC
    Auto-Charger    150 PC
    
      If you need some more P-Chips, here's something helpful!
    
      When you are in the Charge Man Stage, you will find some chicken robots that
    lay robotic eggs. If you shoot the eggs, you can get items such as Energy
    Capsules and P-Chips. If you keep repeating this long enough, getting P-Chips
    is a breeze!

    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ------------------
    B-E-A-T Letter "B"
    ------------------
      You can find this letter after beating the first Snail mid-boss.
    
    ---------------
    Mid-Boss: Snail
    ---------------
      A pretty easy mid-boss to fight, and you can find him in two places through-
    out the stage. When the snail opens its eyes, shoot them. Then he does one of
    two attacks. His eyes can detach and will fly at you. So stand a little close
    to him and jump back when he does that. He can also launch bombs from his
    back, which are easy to dodge. About 4 fully charged Mega Buster attacks will
    finish him off.
    
    --------
    Toad Man
    ---------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Mega Buster
    Weapon Received: Rain Flush & Rush Coil
    
      This boss is insanely easy! Before you enter the gate to the boss, charge up
    your Mega Buster so you can shoot him when you enter the room. Shoot Toad Man
    and when he jumps, slide underneath him. Once he lands, shoot him and he'll
    jump again. Keep repeating this until he dies.
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   BRIGHT MAN'S STAGE                                                   >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ------------------
    B-E-A-T Letter "E"
    ------------------
      Found in area with the platforms that swing from left to right. It is high
    in the air, so be careful when jumping!
    
    ----------
    Bright Man
    ----------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Rain Flush
    Weapon Received: Flash Stopper
    
      This battle is a little tougher than the last one. When the battle begins,
    fire Rain Flush. It will take about 1/5 of his energy, but he will use Flash
    Stopper to freeze you. Then he jumps into you. If needed, you may bring an E-
    Tank along just incase.
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   PHARAOH MAN'S STAGE                                                  >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ------------------
    B-E-A-T Letter "A"
    ------------------
      Found in the area with the rock platforms over the large hole. You need to
    the Ring Boomerang to pick it up which you'll get a little later. It's
    possible to reach it with Rush Coil, but it is very difficult to do so.
    
    -----------
    Pharaoh Man
    -----------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Flash Stopper
    Weapon Received: Pharaoh Shot
    
      When the battle starts, use Flash Stopper to freeze Pharaoh Man in his
    tracks, and then just shoot him. Keep repeating this until he is finished.
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   RING MAN'S STAGE                                                     >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ------------------
    B-E-A-T Letter "T"
    ------------------
      Found a little bit before the mid-boss. Climb up the ladder and go to the
    right for the letter.
    
    ----------------------
    Mid-Boss: Ring Machine
    ----------------------
      This machine is easy! When the rings that surround its eyes are launched
    out, shoot the eyes. About 3 charged up Mega Buster hits will blow him to bits.
    
    --------
    Ring Man
    --------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Pharaoh Shot
    Weapon Received: Ring Boomerang
    
      Once the battle begins, fire a charged up Pharaoh Shot. A nice thing is that
    you don't really have to shoot him with the charged shot! When he jumps into
    the air, try to get to land on the shot. 3 charged attacks will take him out.
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   DR. WILY'S CASTLE                                                    >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      Once the first four Boss Stages have been completed, you will get access to
    Dr. Wily's castle!
    
    -------------------
    Mid-Boss: Satellite
    -------------------
      This boss can be a little hard. When the center of the satellite is open,
    fire the Mega Buster at it. While you try to do that, the center can detach
    and fly around the screen. Also in some cases when the core part opens, a
    fireball will rotate around it. Then it launches the fireball at you.
    
      Once the mid-boss is gone, continue on to yet another boss!
    
    -------
    Ballade
    -------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Mega Buster
    
      The boss won't be a toughie as long as you are careful. Use charged Mega
    Buster shots when Ballade isn't moving. He will stand in a corner and attack
    you with his weapon, which is very easy to dodge. Otherwise, he jumps and runs
    around!
    
      Now that this stage is done, four more Boss Stages appear! These bosses can
    be defeated in any order since the weapons you already have work well against
    them.

    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ------------------
    W-I-L-Y Letter "Y"
    ------------------
      Found soon after you run into the second or third mouse. Use Rush Coil to
    reach it.
    
    ----------
    Charge Man
    ----------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Rain Flush
    Weapon Received: Charge Kick & Rush Jet
    
      Since most of your weapons have no effect on Charge Man when he's flashing,
    using Rain Flush will be your best bet. Simply launch it anytime to cause some
    damage. When he launches lava into the air move in between the middle of some
    of the shots to dodge them. When he charges at you, he will start to flash,
    making him immune to most of your weapons.
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   NAPALM MAN'S STAGE                                                   >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    -----------
    Secret Area
    -----------
      When you first see the area with the flames, use Rain Flush to wash it out.
    Climb up the ladder to meet up with Proto Man. Besides grabbing the Large E-
    Tank and Large P-Chip behind him, Proto Man will leave behind a random prize!
    
    ------------------
    W-I-L-Y Letter "I"
    ------------------
      Once you run into the second area with the napalm missiles, climb up the
    ladder. In the next section, there is a large platform with fire. Get on top
    of the platform and use Rain Flush to destroy the flames. Quickly grab the "I"
    and get back down.
    
    ----------
    Napalm Man
    ----------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Pharaoh Shot
    Weapon Received: Napalm Bomb
    
      Not really much to explain here. Keep charging up Pharaoh Shot and nail it at
    him. He will fire three missiles, just jump over them to avoid them. He also
    shoots Napalm Bombs, and then jumps over you.
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   STONE MAN'S STAGE                                                    >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ------------------
    W-I-L-Y Letter "L"
    ------------------
      Found underneath the third large ledge. Jump off the end and move under it
    to reach the Letter.
    
    ----------------------
    Mid-Boss: Hippopotamus
    ----------------------
      This boss can be disposed of in one of two ways. You can use Rain Flush to
    damage him, or you can use your Mega Buster to shoot out the blocks underneath
    the platform. Once a row is gone, the platform lowers, and gets down low
    enough to shoot him. Do that quickly because the rows will eventually return.
    
    ---------
    Stone Man
    ---------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Napalm Bomb
    Weapon Received: Power Stone
    
      Pharaoh Shot really comes in handy since Stone Man tends to jump a lot. When
    he starts to jump all over the place, fire the bomb so that he'll land on it.
    Once he jumps very high, he'll hit the ground and fall to pieces. When he
    starts to form his shield, he'll be invincible so save your weapon energy when
    he does that.
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   CRYSTAL MAN'S STAGE                                                  >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ------------------
    W-I-L-Y Letter "W"
    ------------------
      This one is a bit hard to explain... When you reach the area where you fall
    down a couple screens, stay to the far right. You'll end up a ledge with an
    enemy. Go past the enemy and jump up to grab the Letter in the next screen.
    
    -----------
    Crystal Man
    -----------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Charge Kick
    Weapon Received: Crystal Eye
    
      Crystal Man is the hardest boss out of the four. When he jumps, slide at him
    when he reaches the ground. When he is in the air, he launches Crystal Eyes
    which bounce all around the room so be careful when moving!
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   BALLADE'S STAGE                                                      >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      The W-I-L-Y Letters that you've collected will open the four gates at the
    beginning of the stage. This stage is filled with helpful items, so grab them
    while you still can.
    
    -------
    Ballade
    -------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Pharaoh Shot
    Weapon Received: Ballade Cracker
    
      This time Ballade "powers" up making harder than he was last time. He dashes
    faster and uses a different weapon. Keep charging up the Pharaoh Shot and use
    a Large E-Tank when needed!
    
      With Ballade defeated, the castle starts to collapse. Now you must get through
    the barriers to escape. Using the newly acquired Ballade Cracker will come in
    handy when the bomb barriers need to be destroyed. You also might need to use
    the Rush Jet to get over one part. When you escape, the castle is destroyed,
    but Dr. Wily escapes to his spaceship!
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   DR. WILY'S SPACESHIP PART I                                          >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      You'll be teleported back to Dr. Right's Lab, and he'll modify Rush so you
    can travel to outer space. Also, purchase all the items you can for the
    upcoming bosses.
    
    ----------------
    Mid-Boss: Cannon
    ----------------
      This is one very easy mid-boss. Just hop on the cannon and shoot the enemy in
    the eye when they are open. While on the cannon, you won't have to worry about
    being hit. The second Cannon you encounter also shoots homing missiles at you,
    so destroy them as soon as you can!
    
    -------------
    Crane Machine
    -------------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Mostly Any Weapon!
    
      This boss is very strange looking. When the core section is "inflated" shoot
    it with basically any weapon since each one does about the same amount of
    damage. While you try to hit it, the crane on top will try to hit you from
    above. Just slide to avoid it. The core also uses random weapons, so watch
    out!
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   DR. WILY'S SPACESHIP PART II                                         >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      Near the beginning of this section has a Large E Tank, so grab it with the
    Ring Boomerang!
    
    -------------
    Mid-Boss: Eye
    -------------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Napalm Bomb
    
      When the battle starts, the room enlarges and the eye splits into four. The
    fake ones will be destroyed when you hit them, and the real one will take
    damage. Once all the fakes are defeated, the real Eye splits again. When the
    Eye reaches close to the ground, launch a Napalm Bomb at it. Once it's
    defeated, a Large Energy Capsule will be left behind.
    
      Continue on through to face another Eye!
    
    ----------------
    Mid-Boss: Eye #2
    ----------------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Napalm Bomb
    
      This time, the room has a different shape and the Eye creates just one copy of
    itself. They both crawl on the walls instead of bouncing around. When you use
    the Napalm Bomb, you can damage both of the Eyes! Once the Eyes collide, the
    room's shape reverses. When they are both defeated, you can get two Large
    Energy Capsules.
    
      Continue on through again and step into the teleporter.
    
    
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    <<<   TELEPORTER ROOM                                                      >>>
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      Here, like the other Mega Man games, there is a Boss Room where you fight all
    of the Bosses again. After each fight, you get a Large Energy Capsule. Refer
    to the Boss Strategies earlier in the Walkthrough to see how to beat them!.
     ___                 ___
    |   |               |   |   1. Toad Man

      Once all of the Bosses have been defeated, you'll appear in another room
    filled with Large Weapon Capsules. Make sure you fill up weapons with very low
    energy. Step into the next teleporter to face the final boss...
    
    ---------------------
    Wily Robot & Spacepod
    ---------------------
    Recommended Weapon(s): Power Stone (1st Form), Ballade Cracker (2nd Form),
    Pharaoh Shot (3rd Form)
    
    First Form: The core will shoot at you and the robot's hand will slam on the
    ground...causing debris to fall. The hand will also try to punch at you. Use
    Power Stone to hit the core, and try to get at least two of the stones to hit
    the core for more damage. Otherwise, this form is fairly easy.
    
    Second Form: With the hands destroyed, you must now face to the head. When the
    mouth is open, shoot it with Ballade Cracker. The antennas will shoot at you.
    The shots it fires can be avoided if you move left or right at the correct
    time. The robot will also "dash" to the far right of screen. I haven't been
    able to figure how to dodge that attack. If you purchased any Large E-Tanks,
    you will surely make use of them now!
    
    Third Form: With the robot destroyed, you must now fight Dr. Wily's spacepod.
    He vanishes and reappears and drops bombs that destroy the floor. Then the
    screen starts to scroll and Dr. Wily will drops these bouncing balls at you.
    Use the slide to avoid the balls. While he still is on screen, charge the
    Pharaoh Shot and use it on him.
    
      Congratulations! You've completed Mega Man IV!
