    Hi, and welcome to my Mega Man FAQ. The purpose of this is to learn 
    about enemies and find new ways to kill them. Once you know how to take 
    out most enemies without getting touched will help you a lot. Here is 
    how it will look

    1: This is the name I have given this enemy/boss. Most of the names I 
    gave the regular enemies are made up, since I have no idea what the 
    hell their real names are, so just bare with me on that.
    2: This is the amount of hits an enemy/boss can take before it dies. 
    Please note these are only for the regular Arm cannon, unless it is a 
    boss with an accurate life bar.
    3: This is just a listing of all the levels you can find the enemy in.
    4: This is description of what the enemy/boss looks like. If you can't 
    tell what enemy this is by the Name or where it is found, this will 
    surely help you.
    5: This is how the enemy moves or if it moves in the first place. This 
    will also list the enemy's "Collision" damage, which is usually higher 
    than most attacks it may use.
    6: This is what the enemy can do other than touch you. Usually shoot 
    something at you... I will list the damage area and how to avoid these 
    attacks.
    7: These are the weapons you should use to take out this enemy... 
    naturally you must get these weapons before hand... 
    8: These are just notes about the enemy or boss. These may tell you 
    something amazing or totally random.
    9: This is the difficulty and threat of the enemy/boss; 1-10 stars. 
    Don't forget bosses are rated differently.
    
    When I take about damage here is what I mean...
    
    Imagine this bar vertical (Your life bar)
    ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    ^^ ^  ^  ^                 ^
    || |  |  |                 |
    1| |  |  |                 |
     2 |  |  |                 |
       3  |  |                 |
          4  |                 |
             5                 |
                               6
    
    1 = Full health, if the attack does nothing, it is NO DAMAGE
    2 = If you get this much damage taken off, you can obviously live from 
    it. This I will consider 1-3 bars in the "LIGHT DAMAGE" area. 
    3 = This is the basic amount of damage, usually when getting hit by a 
    boss or touching a regular smaller enemy. I will call 4-6 damage MEDIUM 
    DAMAGE. 
    4 = This amount of damage is usually inflicted upon you when you touch 
    a boss or a large stationary enemy you are suppose to kill to move on. 
    When faced with this much damage, you should try to get hit by 
    something weaker to go into invincible frames. So 7-9 is HEAVY DAMAGE.
    5 = This usually happens from the same case as the above, only very 
    rarely from anything except a stationary boss. Anything past 9 is 
    EXTREME DAMAGE, and will most likely ruin your day.
    6 = This is death. Only a very few things kill in one hit, in fact 
    other than holes and spikes, I can't think of one. Otherwise this is 
    FATAL DAMAGE.
    
    From here on, the General area will only have Tips, Then weapons, Then 
    my boss order.

    Welcome to Mega Man 1, this Mega Man was the first to start it all. 
    Here are some tips for this Game.
    
    TIPS-----------------------------------------------------------------
    -Spikes Grant an instant death, unlike the others, even if you are 
    blinking from just getting hit
    -When exploring new areas, walk slowly below jumping over gaps... you 
    never know what is below you
    -Try your hardest to get the "Magnet Beam" Item if you are having 
    trouble with jumping. It is in Elect Man's Stage, you need either Guts 
    or Elect Man's power to get it
    -You also need the Magnet Beam to beat the game
    -Energy/weapon pellets reappear once you step back into the screen from 
    a ladder or a fall. This only works with preset ones of course and 
    works also if you die.
    -When fighting the END boss of a level, it may be a good idea to just 
    die if you have little health before you waste all your powers, 
    especially if there are throwable blocks. Once you die, you'll come 
    back right before the boss. Naturally do not do this is you have zero 
    lives.
    
    WEAPONS--------------------------------------------------------------
    Mega Buster = This is your standard weapon... you can shoot three at a 
    time and they usually deal a little damage.
    
    Hyper Bomb = This is a strong weapon that is thrown just a little bit 
    out. Once the bomb is in place, it will take a tad bit to explode into 
    a larger radius. This weapon is only good against a couple of things. 
    Only very few low to the ground enemies that don't go anywhere will 
    even get hit by this.
    
    Super Arm = This is a unique weapon indeed. This will allow Mega Man to 
    pick up blocks. This not only lets you attack in a very strong way, but 
    sometimes you need to use this to get by. This weapon is 100% useless 
    without any throwing blocks.
    
    Rolling Cutters = This weapon acts like a boomerang. There are usually 
    better choices, but this can be used as an indirect weapon.
    
    Thunder Beam  = This is a great weapon. Once you shoot this baby out, 
    it will head up, forward, and down. What makes this even greater is its 
    size... It is about two inches on an average TV. This weapon can also 
    destroy the same blocks you are able to throw with the Super Arm.
    
    Ice Slasher = This weapon will freeze any enemy it touches. This weapon 
    only does damage to a Few bosses and should only be used when you don't 
    feel like fighting.
    
    Fire Storm = This is a basic looking weapon until you touch something. 
    See, you only shoot out a fire ball, but you also get surrounded in a 
    little fire shield. When anything touches this, they will get damaged. 
    Use this when you miss a lot, but still want that second chance if say, 
    the enemy jumps over you.
    
    Magnet Beam = This is a hidden item in Elect Man's Stage. It is about 
    half way through the level behind a trio of blocks. Either use the 
    Super Arm, or if you hate Guts Man's level, you can go through Elect 
    Man's Stage Twice to blow up the blocks. This item is used as a self 
    placed stepping stone. It can be jumped on, but here is something most 
    people don't know about their first play through... the longer you hold 
    down the button, the longer the magnet beam will be.
    
    Boss Order-----------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is the order I did the bosses in...
    
    BOMB > GUTS > CUT > ELECT > ICE > FIRE
    (Bomb beats Guts, Guts beats Cut... and so on...)
    
    
    You can start with Fire man, but his weapon is only needed for Bomb 
    man, which you can still beat with the regular weapon. By all means go 
    for Fire man first if he's easier, but his level will most likely leave 
    you with scares.
    
    So any ways, I started with Bomb man since his level is easy and so is 
    he. You should have no trouble with this. 
    
    Then I moved on to Guts man, but his level might present a problem. If 
    you have trouble, you can skip him and go to Cuts. (Use BOMB on boss)
    
    When ever you get to Cut man, it's ok, he's not that hard to kill with 
    the starting weapon. (Use GUTS on boss)
    
    Any ways, once you are done with Cut man, move on to Elect man. Now if 
    you skipped Guts man, then you will have to replay this level using 
    Elect man's power to break the 3 blocks to get the item. If you did 
    kill Guts man before hand, you don't need to do this twice... 
    (Now is the time to fight Guts man if you didn't, that Magnet Beam item 
    should make that Green Hatch part a breeze). Also remember in Elect 
    man's level is a good place to use the Rolling Cutter on those sliding 
    enemies. (Use CUT on boss)
    
    Now go to Ice man's stage, this level should never be done without the 
    Magnet Beam, as you'll see why. Don't forget to use it at the part with 
    flying platforms.  (Use ELECT on boss)
    
    Now if you did it the first way I mentioned, only Fire man should be 
    left. If so, that Ice Weapon will work wonders in that stage. (Use ICE 
    on boss)
    
    Now you should be off to Wily's levels which are in order. Now if by 
    any chance you have trouble with a boss or enemy, just refer to them 
    below. This is why I wrote the FAQ...

    Appearance ------ This is a little screw like enemy that hops. Looks a 
    little like a frog with two little bubble eyes.
    
    Movement -------- From his Name you can tell this thing jumps and hops 
    around. This is all it can do, and this is how it hits you. (Light)
    
    Attacks --------- NONE
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just hit this guy once, it may be hard 
                      to aim while it is jumping all over the place.
    
                    - Thunder Beam - Only use this because it is easier 
                      to hit with. 
    
    Notes ----------- These can be very annoying, this and they usually 
    appear in-groups. They are worth 300 points.

    Name ------------ Sprinkler
    Hit points ------ 5
    Found in -------- Bomb Man, Cut Man, Fire Man, Wily Stage 2, 
    Wily Stage 3, Wily Stage 4
    
    Appearance ------ This is a little think in the ground, once you step 
    close to it, it pops out like a sprinkler and fires.
    
    Movement -------- It only gets up if you move next to it, but you can 
    still touch it to cause damage. (Light)
    
    Attacks --------- When it pops out, it will shoot off twice, with five 
    shots each. Two move parallel to the ground away from each other, two 
    others go up at 45 degrees and the last goes strait up. This is easy to 
    avoid if you are above it, just stand a little to the right or left of 
    it. If you are on ground level, you can try to kill it before it fires, 
    but it you are too late just jump the 2 shots with a light jump (Light)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Use this quickly to kill it before it
                      shots off anything.
    
                    - Hyper Bomb - Since they don't move, why waste other 
                      weapons? Use only on the grounded ones.
    
                    - Thunder Beam - Use this because it can hit these  
                      guys when retraced and will on hit kill them.
    
                    - Ice Slasher - Use this when they are on the ceiling
                      to freeze them in place--then walk by them.
    
    Notes ----------- These are also annoying enemies, but can be killed 
    easy in many ways. These can appear on the ground, or upside down on 
    the ceilings of this game. 500 Points.
    
    Difficulty ------ **

    Name ------------ Wall Turret
    Hit points ------ 1
    Found in -------- Bomb Man, Cut Man, Wily Stage 2

    like a shell to reveal a barrel of a cannon.
    
    Movement -------- They don't move; these shouldn't touch you.
    
    Attacks --------- All this thing can do is shoot, The first shoot will 
    be at about 60 degrees, next at 30, then 330, then 300 (It is assuming 
    that the turret is on the left wall and you are looking at the angle in 
    a standard form). To avoid this, you usually need to hurry and 
    jump&shoot before the fire gets lower. (LIGHT)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is all you need for this enemy, 
                      has one shoot will take it out.

    the item they drop. Also when the hatch is closed, you can't damage

    Name ------------ Sniper Joe
    Hit points ------ 10
    Found in -------- Bomb Man
    
    Appearance ------ A green humanoid robot with a green vision, he also 
    has a shield.
    
    Movement -------- This guy will jump around or stay put. He is one of 
    the few enemies with a relentless AI... that means if you get over him, 
    he will jump and follow you. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- When he isn't jumping or hiding behind his shield, he  
    will randomly shoot bullets that look like yours, ONLY if you don't 
    shoot at him. To dodge these, just do little jumps since other bullets 
    will usually be hurled at you. (LIGHT)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Booster - This is all you really could use 
                      against him...
    
    Notes ----------- His shield will block your attacks. The only two 
    times you can attack him is if he jumps, or while he is attacking. This 
    enemy isn't that hard, he just takes a few seconds to kill. A form of 
    this enemy appears in all the Mega Man games. 5000 Points.

    them, either jump over them or go under them... (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- If you can't take one of these guys out before it 
    gets too close to you, try to avoid it. Because when you blow it up, it 
    will explode and it has a wide range. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - All you can do it hit these guys with 
                      these, it only takes one hit, so don't worry.
    
    Notes ----------- It sometimes may be better to just let these guys 
    pass you, as they will only respawn once the other one explodes or 
    leaves the screen. 800 Points

    Attacks --------- NONE
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just one lucky hit will due.
    
                    - Fire Storm - I would use this, since if it gets hay

    little hop you can't go under and its big hop you could. You some times 
    MUST kill this thing before it kills you. (HEAVY)
    
    Attacks --------- NONE
    
    Optimum Weapons - Ice Slasher - Use this to freak them. You can do two 
                      things, freeze in mid air and run by him, or freeze
                      on the ground to kill him. Either way, one you freeze 
                      him, switch to your Mega Buster.

    Name ------------ Bomb Man
    Hit points ------ 28 
    Found in -------- Bomb Man, Wily Stage 4
    
    Appearance ------ A yellow, black, and red robot. He has a red mohawk 
    and carries large bombs
    
    Movement -------- All he does is jump across the room, and he tries to 
    hit you while he's doing so. But you also have to avoid his bombs he 
    will most likely launch at the apex of his jump. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- The only other thing this guy can do is throw his 
    bombs. Now they aren't that hard to avoid, but they can explode. It 
    still isn't hard to avoid even that, but the only thing that can be a 
    problem is he landing on you trying to take the bomb hit. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - It only takes 14 hits to take him out 
                      with this weapon, he isn't that hard to do it with  
                      either.
    
                    - Fire Storm - It takes 7 hits to kill him with this  
                      weapon. You can use it any way you want to, either 
                      hit with it fully or with the shield.

    Name ------------ Guts Man
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Guts Man, Wily Stage 4
    
    Appearance ------ A large robot with a large jaw and a helmet almost 
    like a met.
    
    Movement -------- All he will do is jump toward you or up. If he jumps 
    strait up, a huge rock will be in his hands in a few seconds. If he 
    jumps, you should not be on land when he lands as he shakes the ground. 
    (MEDIUM)
    
    Attacks --------- His only other attack is to throw the rock at you, 
    once he does, just make sure you jump it. If you are shaking from him 
    jumping up and down, you'll probably get hit. (MEDIUM)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Hyper Bomb - This bomb takes about 3 hits to kill  
                      him. Not only that, but he stand still most of the 
                      time so he's easy to hit with. This is a lot quicker  
                      than 14 Mega buster Rounds.
    
    Notes ----------- Everyone else finds him easy with the basic weapon... 
    I don't for some reason... 7000 Points.

    Name ------------ Cut Man
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Cut Man, Wily Stage 2
    
    Appearance ------ He is a red-orange and white robot with a pair of 
    handle-less scissors on his head.
    
    Movement -------- He will walk then jump. He does the same thing over 
    and over again. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Ok, there are a couple ways to live in this fight. 
    First off, his ONLY attack is using his Blade. Now, here is the most 
    important part to remember... it is a freaking boomerang. Now, if he is 
    far away, jump his boomerang and then jump it when it comes back. If he 
    throws it close and before it returns he jumps, walk under him... 
    because if you jump you'll most likely get hit by either his jump or 
    the returning blade. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Super Arm - See those Two blocks in the room? Each of 
                      those do 14 points of damage. Two hits and he's dead.
                                  
                    - Fire Storm - Use this if you have it and when you 
                      fight him with no blocks.
    
                    - Mega Buster - This does 3 points to him, so he's 
                      pretty easy right there. Any ways, the best thing
                      to do is to move close to him and shot. He will
                      get knocked back and he will throw a Cutter at you.
                      You should be able to hit him again, and if you keep 
                      moving forward, he will jump over you so you don't
                      have to worry about jumping over his return cutter.

    Name ------------ Elect Man
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Elect Man, Wily Stage 2
    
    Appearance ------ He is a black robot with a little yellow design on 
    his head. He also has a lightning bolt on his chest.
    
    Movement -------- He will dash towards you and jump at times. (MEDIUM)
    
    Attacks --------- His attack is deadly, his Thunder Beam attack. He 
    throws it way too quick. Want to know the worst part? It can even hit 
    you when you are standing on the higher level. The best way to avoid 
    this is to jump EARLY and hope to make it over it. If you lack dodging 
    skills, then jump into him on purpose! Yes, you heard me, do this so 
    you take lighter damage. (EXTREME)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Rolling Cutter - Do not think about even coming into
                      this fight without the use of this weapon. This can 
                      kill him just as fast as he can. I would stand on the 
                      higher area and try hitting him with a curve. If you 
                      can't hit him like that, touch him on purpose and hit 
                      him point blank.
    
    Notes ----------- This is without a doubt the hardest robot master to 
    kill in the game, and the strongest ever (I'm sure ice man does the 
    same, but nobody likes him :D). He also takes 1 point of damage from 
    your Mega Buster. 80000 Points.

    Name ------------ Ice Man

    Appearance ------ A blue Eskimo.
    
    Movement -------- All he does is move in a squared way. You'll know 
    once you see it. (MEDIUM)
    
    Attacks --------- He is another strong one like Elect man, but he is a 
    lot more manageable. All he does is make these Ice slates across the 
    room. This is the way he makes it happen. All you can do is jump 
    between them. (EXTREME)

    Optimum Weapons - Thunder Beam - One good thing about him, you can kill 
                      him in three hits and you can get two off before he 
                      even comes close to hitting you.

    Appearance ------ He is a white and red robot with a furnace on his 
    head.
    
    Movement -------- He never jumps, but he walks toward you. (MEDIUM)
    
    Attacks --------- His special is a tad different from the one Mega Man 
    picks up. All he does it launch a ton of Flame waves. Now what's even 
    worse is how they leave behind a little fire pile. Do you best to jump 
    these and make should you attack every time you touch the ground.
    
    Optimum Weapons - Ice Slasher - Just use this as you would your normal 
                                    gun.

    Name ------------ Yellow Devil
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Wily Stage 1
    
    Appearance ------ He is a Huge Yellow monster, composed of many yellow 
    puff balls.
    
    Movement -------- When his body is getting put together, about 20 
    pieces will fly to the opposite side of the room. This is a pain in the 
    ass to dodge. The best I can tell you is have a lot of patients for 
    this part. (MEDIUM)
    
    Attacks --------- His only attack is a single bullet from his eye ball. 
    This really shouldn't cause too much trouble, but it is stronger than 
    the usually little pellet. (MEDIUM)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Thunder Beam - Use this on his eye, that's about the 
    fastest clean way to beat him.
    
    Notes ----------- Ok here is a tip- focus on the blocks coming in. 
    After you try this boss about ten times (Yes it will take you about 
    this many tries). Now the hardest part of this boss is when this 
    happens (He always comes apart the same way)

    What you do, VERY lightly jump over the first one, High jump the second 
    one after touching the ground, you might have to tilt a little right. 
    Then land and tilt to the right. This is his hardest combo in my 
    opinion. 100000 Points.

    Appearance ------ He looks like... YOU!
    
    Movement -------- He moves like... YOU!
    
    Attacks --------- He attacks like... YOU!
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is what you have to do. You have 
                      to fire and try and keep him pinned in the corner of 
                      the room. The best way to do this is look at this pic
    
                                o            o
                              
                                                      o
                      If you can do this, he will usually jump and shot, so 
                      you can easily just stand on the ground and then 
                      start your next chain. If you don't know how to shoot 
                      like that picture, shoot on the ground then jump and 
                      shoot twice, land and repeat.
    
    Notes ----------- Ok, basically he copies the weapon you are using, and 
    uses it himself. You can beat him with many weapons, but each of them 
    are also effective against you. 100000 Points.

    Hit points ------ 70
    Found in -------- Wily Stage 3
    
    Appearance ------ A giant bubble with a thingy in the middle.
    
    Movement -------- All this thing will do is move around the room's 
    edges and sometimes go across it through the middle. Watch out however, 
    these bubbles are huge and may require you to jump on the middle blocks 
    so you can make it over them. (MEDIUM)
    
    Attacks --------- All this thing can do is shoot out little bubbles at 
    you in the same color as the bubble itself. It really doesn't even 
    matter if this hits you since this boss can be won just from a damage 
    race. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Use this on the first three Bubbles, it 
                      should take 10 hits for each one.
    
                    - Super Arm - On your last four bubbles, throw a pile 
                      of bricks at them each. They will die in one hit.
    
    Notes ----------- If you think you are going to die at all, DO NOT 
    THROW A BLOCK. This will make the level that much harder the next time 
    to step into it. If you did die, the best thing to do is just lose all 
    your lives and continue. 70000 points.

    Name ------------ Dr. Wily
    Hit points ------ 56
    Found in -------- Wily Stage 4
    
    Appearance ------ It looks like a giant UFO type machine. The second 
    form just reveals Wily's cockpit.
    
    Movement -------- It just moves back and forth, not enough to matter. 
    In other words, by this stage of the game, you shouldn't get hit by 
    him.
    
    Attacks --------- Upward curving Bullet - This attack is used on his 
                      first form. All it does it lobe a ball into the air 
                      and it comes back, nothing that hard to deal with.
    
            --------- Spinning plasma - This attack spins plasma in a path 
                      towards you... but it does a weird circular motion. 
                      This attack is hard to effectively dodge, but if you  
                      just walk underneath it, you will dodge it about 80% 
                      of the time.
    
    Optimum Weapons - Fire Storm - For his fire form, get really close to 
                      his weapon pod. If you hit him with the shield, you 
                      should rip him apart in no time.
    
                    - Thunder Beam - This time, most of your weapons do  
                      about 1 damage, but using Thunder beam will hit him  
                      twice with one shot. Since you most stay on the  
                      ground for most of the time to dodge his plasma, this 
                      is a good idea.
    
    Notes ----------- Get used to seeing this version of Wily... The 
    bastard uses it in the Second games as well... 200000 Points.
