    ===============================================================================
    II. Boss Strategies
    ===============================================================================
    
    You should take the bosses out in this order: Start with Toad Man, then
    Bright Man, Pharaoh Man, Ring Man, Crystal Man, Napalm Man, Stone Man and
    at last Charage Man.
    
    Toad Man
    ========
    Weakness: Ring Boomerang
    Get Weapon: Rain Flush
    
    Toad Man is very easy, if you know what to do. Just use your standard weapon
    on him. Fire at him and he will jump. Dodge the jump and shoot at him again.
    Repeat the procces until he is defeated. If you have Ring Boomerang, use it
    to kill him faster.
    
    Bright Man
    ==========
    Weakness: Rain Flush
    Get Weapon: Flash Stopper
    
    Bright Man is a bit harder than Toad Man, but he is not a hard boss. Just use
    Rain Flush and dodge his jumps. Sometimes he freezes you and jump on you to 
    cause damage.
    
    Pharaoh Man
    ===========
    Weakness: Flash Stopper
    Get Weapon: Pharaoh Shot
    
    An easy battle if you have Flash Stopper. Just use Flash Stopper to stop him
    and fire at him. When he unfreeze use it again and fire at him.
    
    Ring Man
    ========
    Weakness: Pharaoh Shot
    Get Weapon: Ring Boomerang
    
    Charage up Pharaoh Shot fully and try to make him land on it. This strategy
    worked for me but if does not work for you, just try to hit him with Pharaoh
    Shot.
    
    Antenna
    =======
    Weakness: None
    Get Weapon: None
    
    Shoot at the ball with your Mega Buster when it is exposed. Not Hard.
    
    Ballade (1st Time)
    ==================
    Weakness: None
    Get Weapon: None
    
    This boss is not very hard, just shoot at him with a fully charged Mega
    Buster when he is not moving.
    
    Crystal Man
    ===========
    Weakness: Charge Kick
    Get Weapon: Crystal Eye
    
    If you have the Charge Kick use it. If you don't have it use your Mega
    Buster. He is a bit hard.
    
    Napalm Man
    ==========
    Weakness: Crystal Eye
    Get Weapon: Napalm Bomb
    
    Use the Crystal Eye against him.  If you shoot against the wall, the
    Crystal Eye will spilt into four smal Crystal Eyes.
    
    Stone Man
    =========
    Weakness: Napalm Bomb
    Get Weapon: Power Stone
    
    Try to jump over his stones and use the Napalm Bomb, when youre near and
    when he is not doing anything. He is quite hard.
    
    Charge Man
    ==========
    Weakness: Power Stone
    Get Weapon: Charge Kick
    
    Use the Power Stone when he is not flashing or charging. It's quite
    hard to jump over him too. Hard.
    
    Ballade (2nd time)
    ==================
    Weakness: None
    Get Weapon: Ballade Cracker
    
    Use a fully charged Mega Buster or Paraoh Shot. Try to make him not land
    on you whe nhe jumps.
    
    Cannon
    ======
    Weakness: None
    Get Weapon: None
    
    Jump to up on the cannon and shoot it with your Mega Buster. Easy.
    
    Crane
    =====
    Weakness: Almost All Weapons
    Get Weapon: None
    
    Very easy. Shoot at it's mid section with any weapon.
    
    Eyes (1)
    ========
    Weakness: None
    Get Weapon: None
    
    Shoot at the real eye with Mega Buster. If you shoot at the fake eyes
    it will not take any damage.
    
    Eyes (2)
    ========
    Weakness: None
    Get Weapon: None
    
    A bit harder than before, but try to use the same strategies.
    
    Next you will fight all bosses again. Use the same strategies as before

    Dr. Wily (1st Form)
