Hi, and welcome to my Mega Man 2 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

Name ------------ (1)
Hit points ------ (2)
Found in -------- (3)

Appearance ------ (4)

Movement -------- (5)

Attacks --------- (6)

Optimum Weapons - (7)

Notes ----------- (8)

Difficulty ------ (9)

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

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.

This is Mega Man 2, this game didn't have too many new things aside 
from using energy tanks and more levels.

Tips-----------------------------------------------------------------
-Spikes still kill in one hit, but can be stepped on for a little bit 
once you go into damage/flashing screens.
-When exploring new areas, walk slowly below jumping over gaps... you 
never know what is below you
-If you think you are going to need a power up later, don't waste it... 
as they do not come back like in the original
-Energy tanks are a new thing in Mega Man up to this point... you hold 
them and are used like say a Medipack like in any other game. You can 
hold 4 of them and they restore all your health.
-Unlike Mega Man 3-6, "E-Tanks" can not be stored... that means once 
you lose a continue, they all go bye bye. If you are about to die on 
your last life, make sure you use an E tank, as it will only waste any 
ways.
-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 something like Atomic Fire or Flash Stopper. Once you die, 
you'll come back right before the boss. Naturally do not do this if you 
have zero lives.
-Disregard the above if you die at a none robot-master boss as you 
might start at the regular checkpoint, thus you might be able to 
restore these powers.
-Without a doubt, this game has the shortest invincible frames for 
bosses from the 8 original Mage Man Games... take advantage over this.
-Hard mode offers very little except for some enemies and most bosses 
take more to kill.
-I wrote this guide using easy mode... I will write a note or two 
telling you the hard differences.


WEAPONS--------------------------------------------------------------
Mega Buster = This is your standard weapon... you can shoot three at a 
time and they usually deal a little damage.

Air Shooter = This is a nice juicy triple shots air cannon. What makes 
this puppy even better is that not only is it strong and can hit three 
times, it also up-curves to hit air-borne enemies. The only bad thing 
is if you miss, you must wait till they ALL leave the screen to shoot 
them again.

Time Stopper = This weapon will freeze time... all of it. Time Stopper 
will stop enemies, some bosses, and environmental hazards such as 
dropping chains, conveyer belts, and the lasers in Quick Man's Stage. 
There are two bad things about this power -- you can't use anything you 
damage anybody, and once you start it, it doesn't stop until you are 
out of energy. In other words, you can use it ONCE.

Quick Boomerang = This weapon is almost like your regular weapon, but 
with a few differences... first it only goes about half the screen 
because it curves downwards (Which is good because it can hit things a 
little higher and a lot lower than your normal weapon). Another good 
part is that you can have 4 of these guys on the screen for a good 
rapid fire. Oh and 8 shots take down an energy pellet.

Metal Blade = Undisputedly one of the best weapons of not only the 
game, but of almost every Mega Man. First of all, it is strong, most 
enemies and even the bosses are weak against this weapon. Next this guy 
can be launched in ALL EIGHT DICRECTIONS by pressing the D pad in the 
way you want. Third, it is a big weapon so it is easy to hit with and 
it can pierce. There is one little problem with this item... you can't 
walk while you shoot, since you throw the blades. 

Crash Bomb = A more tactical weapon. You launch this bomb out strait 
forward... if it hits an enemy, it will do major damage. If it hits a 
wall, it will stay there for a little while and then explode. These are 
also the only things that can destroy a certain type of walls.

Bubble Lead = This weapon will allow you to toss a big bubble out that 
will travel on the surface. As it rolls, it will damage anything in its 
way: if it is enough to overkill the enemy, it will continue rolling.

Atomic Fire = This is a weapon like the charged shot Mega Buster in the 
sequels. You can either shoot a VERY weak shot, or hold in the fire 
button for a while. This takes a long time to charge and when it is 
ready you will flash in a greenish color. Once charged, it will be 
extremely powerful but it takes a lot of energy to use.

Leaf Shield = Once fired, four green leafs will continue to circle you, 
damaging anything it touches. Once you move left or right, the circle 
of leaves will be shot in that direction killing most things it 
touches.

Item 1 = This will launch out a little platform that Mega Man can step 
on. All this baby will do is float up for a little bit so you can get 
to farther places. You can have three out at once.

Item 2 = This will make a little jet board out in front of you that 
will launch once you step on it. All it can do is fly you over things, 
it will perish once it hits any form of ground. Make sure you have 
enough energy before you ride, as once it is gone, it will also 
disappear, even in mid air.

Item 3 = This item is a unique one. It will bounce until it hits a 
wall, then once you jump on it, it will move up it. The uses for this 
are all basically preset, very rarely is an Item 3 better for the case 
than the first Item... unless you want to save them.

Boss Order-----------------------------------------------------------

AIR > FLASH > QUICK > METAL > CRASH > BUBBLE > HEAT > WOOD

I start with Air Man, true is level is a pain if you just learned how 
to play this game, but you don't really need any weapons to beat it. 
Air man can be defeated with just the regular weapon with easy as well.

Then I head to Flash man's level. This is another easy level, but even 
easier when you can use Air to kill Mech Joe's in one hit. You will 
have to use the regular weapon again. Using item 2 when you reach the 
very end will help you get the E tank if you can't jump.

I now go to Quick Man's stage. The Flash stopper helps a very lot in 
his stage, but if you don't use it there, it will take half his health 
away. Plus Air helps versus the Joes and even the boss when he jumps. 
Don't forget to use Item 3 to get the free life at the level's start.

I then go to Metal Man's stage. I use the Flash on the falling spikes, 
and Quick on a few enemies and the boss. Remember to use item 2 in get 
the free life and E tank.

Crash man's level is easy, and actually can be done second, but having 
Metal Blades through out this level will help with the annoying 
enemies. Use Air on the boss for an easy victory. Remember to use item 
2 to get up for the E tank area at the end of the level and again to 
get the free life.

Bubble Man's level is also an easy one. I would use Quick for the first 
half of the level, then change to Metal blades when you reach your 
first angler fish. Even use this weapon for the boss.

Heat man's level is extremely hard without items. Use them whenever a 
disappearing block part comes up... remember to save Item 2 for the 
long end. I would use Metal Blades for the whole level up till the very 
end, since those flying robots are annoying and can spell death if you 
hit one over a hole. Use bubble on the boss.

I chose to do Wood man's level last because his weapon really isn't 
that helpful... Remember to use Flash right after the first dog to walk 
by the other two. Use either Air/Crash/Heat on Wood Man.

After this level, you are on to Wily's Castle.

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Flying Air Robot
Hit points ------ 1
Found in -------- Air Man

Appearance ------ This is a little black round robot with moving gold 
lips. It is found coming out of large red hovering robots with white 
hair and horns.

Movement -------- Once you step on one of the Red robots in Air Man's 
stage, these little guys will come out of the sides and slowly rise up 
then home in to you. To avoid these guys, just shoot them before they 
come close. (Light)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - One hit and they die, nothing else to 
it.

Notes ----------- I just didn't know what to call it... but you know 
what they are once you step into his level...

Difficulty ------ *

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Lightning Bolt Bot
Hit points ------ 2 
Found in -------- Air Man

Appearance ------ These are the upper half of a robot found on a moving 
cloud. The most distinct characteristic... they hold a lightning bolt.

Movement -------- They move in a little circle with their cloud. You 
should never collide with them. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Lightning Toss - They will hit you with their 
lightning, ONLY if you jerk around with killing them. This attack is 
very inaccurate and has a great delay. If you jump and shoot them twice 
right when you see them, this should never affect you in the least bit. 
(Medium) 

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just hit the up part of the robot (The 
body) with two hits. Be VERY careful since you might have to jump and 
you are most likely on a moving platform.

                - Metal Blades - They aren't that damaging against 
them, but they will allow you to hit these guys at an angle.

Notes ----------- You need their platforms to ride on. If you miss 
these guys the platform will go outside the screen and just respawn 
another one. These guys take around an extra hit on the Hard mode.

Difficulty ------ ***

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Egg Dropping Bird
Hit points ------ 1
Found in -------- Air Man, Crash Man, Wood Man, Wily Stage 1

Appearance ------ This is a bird that drops an egg.

Movement -------- This bird will just move at the top of the screen 
either left of right. It will drop an egg right in front of you. This 
bird should never hit you.

Attacks --------- Egg Drop - This bird will drop an egg right in front 
of you. There are many things you can do at this point. The safe way to 
avoid this attack is to just kill the egg in mid air. If you do it this 
way, you don't have to fight the little birds that just swoop towards 
you. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - If you know what you are doing, you 
should be able to knock out a few little birds then jump through them 
and kill the rest. This is harder to do than the other choices.

                - Metal Blades - Launching just one of these right when 
the egg explodes will most likely kill ALL of them. You can even take 
out the bird that drops the egg as well!

                - Time Stopper - This only works that great in Crash 
Man's level, where you are climbing up a long ladder. This will stop 
the birds so you don't get hit.

                - Leaf Shield - If you shoot out the leaf shield, it 
will act like a big area of effect Metal Blade. You can also just keep 
the shield on and let the birds fly into you!

Notes ----------- These birds are great to kill when low on supplies. 
If you use a Metal Blade or Leaf Shield, you can kill all eight of the 
little birds in seconds, that means eight chances to drop items. These 
are probably the best of the best in item hunting. 

Difficulty ------ **

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Worm Dispenser/Worm 
Hit points ------ 3 Each
Found in -------- Air Man, Flash Man, Quick Man, Wily Stage 1

Appearance ------ These are little things on the ground that make 
little blue cheese doodle worms that jump out and squiggle.  

Movement -------- One the worms jump out, they will most likely try to 
land were you are. If you just move, they will not hit you. Once they 
are in the ground, just kill them, since they don't move at all. 
(Light)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Waiting - These things die out after a little while.

                - Mega Buster - This can kill a worm in about 3 hits, 
so just tap the shoot button as fast as you can. Please note that you 
cannot kill the dispensers if this weapon unless you are underneath 
them.

                - Metal Blades - This will kill the worms and the 
dispenser in one hit. Fast and effective. 

                - Bubble Lead - Same as the Metal blades, only for 
ground level.

Notes ----------- These guys are another source for item hunting. On 
hard, I believe they have more hit points.

Difficulty ------ ***

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Air pushers
Hit points ------ 3
Found in -------- Air Man

Appearance ------ These are blue robots with huge fans in them. They 
look like Air Man in a way.

Movement -------- They don't move, nor should you EVER touch them. 
(Heavy)

Attacks --------- Fan - All these things will do is push you back. Just 
kill them so this doesn't happen. (None)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Three shots in one jump will do the 
trick. You can also jump and shoot before they appear on screen to not 
get pushed back a whole lot.

Notes ----------- On Hard, they take about 5 hits to kill.

Difficulty ------ *

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Pea Shooters
Hit points ------ 3
Found in -------- Flash Man, Crash Man, Wily Stage 2, Wily Stage 3

Appearance ------ These are little robots on two legs. One "arm" is a 
gun, and the other one will crank the robot to a new angle.

Movement -------- They can only move their arm up or down, otherwise 
they stay still. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Shoot - This is all they can do... shoot just like 
you, only theirs will arc. If they are blocking off a path for you to 
go down, just wait till they crank it up. This will allow you to make 
your move. They usually do it after 5 shots. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Three hits and they die, since they 
don't move, nothing special as to be done.

                - Air Shooter - This should be used right when you step 
into Flash man's stage, since most of them are above you. One of these 
will kill one if hit right.

Notes ----------- On difficult, they take much more to kill.

Difficulty ------ ***

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Mech Joe
Hit points ------ 10
Found in -------- Flash Man, Quick Man, Heat Man, Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ A red robot in a huge purple walker.

Movement -------- This Robot will jump, and try and squish you. (Heavy)

Attacks --------- Shoot - If the robot can't get to you, it will shoot 
pretty dam fast. There is no real sure fire way to dodge all the 
attacks, instead, you should just try and kill this Mech as fast as 
possible. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - I would only use this is you KNOW it 
can not get to you.

                - Air Shooter - If hit right, you can destroy a Mech 
Joe in ONE hit with this weapon. Good to know since these are very hard 
enemies. Don't forget to still watch out for the shield.

                - Wood Shield - On normal, a two hit kill.

Notes ----------- Once you kill this enemy, a Guard Joe will pop out of 
it. These enemies take a lot more to kill on Hard.

Difficulty ------ **********

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Guard Joe
Hit points ------ 5
Found in -------- Flash Man, Quick Man, Heat Man, Wily Stage 1, Wily 
Stage 4

Appearance ------ A red humanoid robot with a visor, he also has a 
shield.

Movement -------- He doesn't move. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Shoot - When he is not behind his shield, he will 
shoot three times. To avoid these, do three little jumps. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - If you have good reaction timing, you 
can start shooting right when he puts down his shield and kill him 
right off.

                - Air Shooter - Using this point black will kill this 
little guy in one to two shots.

Notes ----------- He is what pops out of a Mech Joe once you destroy 
it, these can also be found alone as well. They are much harder on hard 
since they take more to kill. Don't forget that you can't hit their 
shield.

Difficulty ------ ********

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Stack O' Cans
Hit points ------ 1
Found in -------- Flash Man, Metal Man, Crash Man

Appearance ------ This is a robot that is made up of four cans. The 
third one up has eyes!

Movement -------- This will only move to the left. If will NEVER stop. 
(Heavy)

Attacks --------- Tumble - Please note that this attack is ONLY on 
hard. Any ways, once you hit him for the first time, he will launch the 
three non-eyed cans at you. These are hard to avoid, but if you stand 
still about a step in front of him, you will usually avoid them. After 
a little bit, he will put himself back together, then one more hit will 
kill him. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - One hit kill, aim for the eyes.

                - Item 1 - If you don't feel like killing them on hard 
since it is very risky, then just jump over them.

Notes ----------- These are very easy on normal, one hit to kill, but 
on hard they have that extra hit.

Difficulty ------ * (****** on hard)

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Little Springs 
Hit points ------ Undefined
Found in -------- Quick Man, Metal Man, Heat Man, Wily Stage 1

Appearance ------ These are little, low to the ground, robots. They 
will slide on the ground and speed up if you are on the same elevation 
as them.

Movement -------- They just go back and forth. The best thing to do is 
just JUMP over them. (Medium)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Quick Boomerang - This is the only thing I know of 
that kills these guys. A couple hits will put them out.

Notes ----------- This enemy gets FREAKING enormous in the third Mega 
Man... they both pop up and do a spring dance if you touch them.

Difficulty ------ **

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Fire Throwers
Hit points ------ 5
Found in -------- Quick Man

Appearance ------ These are red and yellow robots that have their 
bowled head lit ablaze.

Movement -------- They don't move. (Heavy)

Attacks --------- Fire Toss - They will throw fire balls at you... the 
best way to avoid these is to jump before they toss, so it will go 
high, then kill them when you land. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is all you will need against these 
guys. There are probably better things, but these aren't that hard.

                - Air Shooter - Just for the hell of it, I tried this 
baby out... one hit kill if you must resort to this.

Notes ----------- Once you kill these guys, the lights will go out. 
Another thing, the fire they throw look just like the fire ball enemies 
from the original Mega Man.

Difficulty ------ **

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Drills
Hit points ------ 3
Found in -------- Metal Man, Wily Stage 2

Appearance ------ These are little drills.

Movement -------- They will burrow themselves either from the ground to 
the ceiling or visa-versa. To avoid them, STOP WALKING. They will NEVER 
appear underneath you. Once you take some time to look, then think 
about where you can go from there. (Medium)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just attack them like any other enemy. 
On hard, you might only get the chance to kill the ones on the ground 
if you don't hustle.

                - Leaf Shield - This will not only protect you from 
them, it will also kill any drills it touches once you shoot it. 

                -Time Stopper - This will just let you walk freely by 
them without the fear of getting hit.

Notes ----------- These are great enemies to item hunt.

Difficulty ------ ***

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Gear Clown
Hit points ------ 3 (1 for the Clown, 2 for the Gear)
Found in -------- Metal Man

Appearance ------ A pink clownish looking robot on a gear.

Movement -------- It will just ride toward you... the only way to avoid 
this is you just kill it before it gets to you. If you kill the Clown, 
you can jump the gear. If you kill the gear, the clown will just fall. 
(Medium)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Why use anything else? 

Notes ----------- Both parts can always be killed allowing for 2 drops.

Difficulty ------ **

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Spinning Can
Hit points ------ 1
Found in -------- Crash Man, Heat Man, Wily Stage 1, Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ These are a single can that have eyes; they spin.

Movement -------- All these things do are SLOWLY spin towards you... 
that's all. To avoid them, just kill them.

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - 1 hit to kill, just jump!

                - Metal Blade - Since these guys usually will come from 
either above you or below you, a multi directional attack may be a good 
idea.

                - Leaf Shield - If these guys come toward you... what 
do you think will happen when they run into a shield?

Notes ----------- These will either come from no where, or a hole.

Difficulty ------ *

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Metool
Hit points ------ 1
Found in -------- Crash Man, Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ A robot hidden under a yellow helmet.

Movement -------- Once they pop up, they will just run a little bit 
than hide again. (Medium)

Attacks --------- It will lift its helmet up and attack you with three 
bullets, one goes strait, and the other two make a V towards you. 
Either get close enough to jump the highest bullet or stand a little 
back and low jump the middle one. (LIGHT)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - One hit when it pops up. Try to find 
the helmet pop up G spot, then shoot before it pops up. If you are 
lucky, you can kill it before it actually shoots out anything.

Notes ----------- Mega Man's Token enemy, at least 2 versions of it are 
in every Mega Man. You can NEVER kill these while they are hat down.

Difficulty ------ **

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Zip Chord Heli's
Hit points ------ 3
Found in -------- Crash Man, Heat Man, Wily Stage 2

Appearance ------ These are robots that will pull a chord on their 
head. They also resemble a stamper.

Movement -------- They will drop from the sky, then jump and try and 
press you. To avoid this, either walk under them or kill them before 
they touch you. Remember, they will target wherever you are. (Medium)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Once they fall down from the sky their 
first time, pump three bullets into them. If you can kill them then, 
run!

                - Air Shooter - One hit will kill them with this thing, 
this is also a good idea since it curves up and can hit them in mid 
air.

                - Metal Blade - These will also kill them in one hit, 
use this if you are about to get crushed since you can kill them in one 
hit.

Notes ----------- On Hard, they take more to kill, and only two can be 
on the screen at once.

Difficulty ------ ****

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Name ------------ Frog
Hit points ------ 5
Found in -------- Bubble Man

Appearance ------ It looks like a green frog.

Movement -------- It doesn't move any where.

Attacks --------- All it can do is spit out three little frogs that 
will jump out and attack you. There is no good way to avoid these, but 
who cares? They do one point of damage. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is good for the big frogs, but you 
will have to wait for the little frogs to jump to hit them.

                - Quick Boomerang - This is a decent way to sweep up 
the little frogs, but will kill the Giant Frog very quickly.
 
                - Metal Blades - These have about the same power as the 
regular Mega Buster, but they will allow you to take out all the baby 
frogs in one swift attack.

Notes ----------- They take more damage on hard.

Name ------------ Driving Snails 
Hit points ------ 1
Found in -------- Bubble Man, Wily Stage 3

Appearance ------ Snails with wheels, what more can I say?

Movement -------- They move back and forth. To avoid them, either 
attack them or jump over them. (Medium)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is all you need, one hit to kill 
them.

Notes ----------- On hard, they may launch their shells off, but they 
will ALWAYS do that if you hit them with a metal blade... so don't do 
that.

Name ------------ Anglers
Hit points ------ 5 (2 for the shrimp)
Found in -------- Bubble Man

Appearance ------ A giant fish that lays down. It shoots out shrimp. 

Movement -------- It doesn't move... (EXETREME) 

Attacks --------- Shrimpy - All he can do is spit these guys out from 
his mouth. To avoid them, kill them... (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Metal Blades - The regular Mega buster can make 
fighting these guys a pain... especially on hard. Any ways, these 
blades will rip through the shrimp in one hit and kill the angler in 
two.

Notes ----------- Make sure you hit the Angler in the bulb. These also 
make great places to get items.

Appearance ------ These are mines... that look a little like jellyfish.

Movement -------- They will drop down from the top of the screen and 
then home in on you after a while. (Light)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - One hit to kill, nothing special.

Notes ----------- Sometimes it might be a better idea to let these guys 
hit you. This is because when they come, you are surrounded by 
spikes... and if you suck at jumping, that 2 seconds of damage 
invincibility will help you make it past that area. 

Difficulty ------ *

Appearance ------ They look like a crab

Movement -------- They will fall down a water fall, when they touch 
ground, they will walk towards you. (Medium)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - One hit will kill them, but if you only 
have this to use, I would wait till they are in sight before you jump 
any gaps...

                - Metal Blade - Since these will come at you from above 
usually right after a jump, shooting diagonal direction will usually 
hit them. Again, this is a one hit kill.

Notes ----------- The main point of this enemy is to really just knock 
you into a hole.

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just wait till they fly down enough for 
a jump shot.

                - Metal Blade - This is if you don't free like waiting.

Notes ----------- On hard, they take more to kill... these appear in a 
lot of Mega man games after wards.

Appearance ------ It looks like a purple bunny.

Movement -------- This thing will hop towards you. Most of the time it 
will be still and throw carrots at you. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Carrot Toss - Once it stands still, it will throw 
three carrots at you. Most of the time, you can kill them before you 
see them do anything... but if they do come out, just jump them. 
(Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Five hits and that die. Use this if 
they are on level ground with you.

                - Quick Boomerang - This will just kill it faster.

                - Metal Blade - This doesn't kill them fast, but will 
get the job done if they are below you which happens in the level many 
times.

                - Bubble Lead - This will kill them in two hits, I just 
wrote this because I wanted to have another non-boss use :D

Found in -------- Wood Man

Appearance ------ A big blue dog.

Movement -------- This dog doesn't move. (Heavy)

Attacks --------- All this dog can do is shoot out an up-curving fire 
ball trail from its mouth. To avoid it, either shoot and cover, or jump 
over them. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Only use this if you don't have 
anything else... better learn how to tap the shoot button quick.

                - Atomic Fire - Charge this up to full, and you will 
have a one hit kill. Make sure you know how to kill Wood Man with out 
this weapon just in case you use too much.

                - Metal Blade - Takes only five hits to kill, so it's 
faster than the Mega Buster is.

                - Quick Boomerang - Faster than the Metal Blades, but 
you must go closer.

                - Time Stopper - This will allow you to skip the other 
two dogs in Wood Man's stage. Use the Time Stopper right when you beat 
the first dog but before you walk into the next screen.

Notes ----------- The enemy that can take the most here in Mega Man 2. 
Of course he takes more to kill on hard.

Optimum Weapons - Metal Blades - Use this weapon to attack them BEFORE 
they jump up. This will let you go though the area without taking 
damage.

                - Time Stopper - If you didn't use this for the dogs... 
you can use it on these guys.

Movement -------- These will run toward you at the end of Wood Man's 
stage. You can rarely jump over them, but they will usually jump right 
before hitting you... so to avoid them just stand still. (Medium)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Crash Bomb - Most other weapons will take too long to 
kill these enemies, so this is the only good weapon for these guys. One 
hit to kill, just make sure you don't need these for Wood Man.

Notes ----------- On Hard, it is almost impossible to kill these guys 
with anything but Atomic Fire or Crash Bombs

Name ------------ Air Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Air Man, Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ He is a blue bodied robot with a fan built smack in 
the middle. He has black and yellow limbs.

Movement -------- He will stand still shooting air thingys out. After 
three of them, he will jump across the room with two leaps; once 
landing in the middle, then at the end. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Air Shooter - He will make a bunch of mini tornado 
like blue wind spots on the screen, then they will fly towards you. Now 
this attack is very hard to dodge... some times impossible I believe, 
but all you have to do is usually light jump over an air. The thing 
that makes it worse... it's all random. Any ways, if you have full 
health, you can allow yourself to just walk toward him and shoot him. 
You will kill him faster. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is about the only weapon that you 
can use at the max distance. Remember that if you hit one of his air 
shooter, your hit will bounce off it. Any ways, after his third attack, 
simply move to the far left... he will jump right in front of you, this 
is you time to pump all you got into him. It takes 7 hits to kill him 
and you can get at least 3 in if you are behind him.

                - Leaf Shield - This weapon would devastate him if it 
didn't bounce off his air shooters. So use the Mega Buster Until either 
you are close to him where you can hit him with the shield without 
shooting it or when he if jumping. This should take about 2-3 hits.

                - Time Stopper - Use this if you have one hit and 
desperately need to dodge one more attack. This will freeze his air and 
let you jump through them a lot easier.

Notes ----------- Disregard the "you can allow yourself to just walk 
toward him and shoot him" strat if you are playing on Hard. If you are, 
you have to dodge just a wee bit.

Name ------------ Flash Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Flash Man, Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ A white and blue robot... he's kind of short.

Movement -------- He will follow Mega Man around and will usually jump 
when you shoot. Taking advantage of this will allow him to jump right 
over you. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Freeze - He will make a little gesture and then 
freeze everything on the screen. Once he does, he will shoot a large 
amount of bullets in a spray form that will most likely hit you. Now 
unless you are in the air far enough or way under him, you will get 
hit. Don't worry though, his shot takes off one pellet of energy, us 
your damage state to run through him so you don't take any collision 
damage. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Hit him only 7 times with this to kill 
him. Nothing special, just try to hop up and down to hit him wherever 
he is.

                - Metal Blades - These are just a tad bit stronger than 
your Mega buster and will hit him easier...

                - Crash Bombs - These also do a little more damage to 
him, but there is a little trick you can do. If you hit the side of a 
wall or ledge, and he walks by this and freezes time... he can die in 
pretty much one Crash Bomb. This takes a lot of luck to pull off.

                - Bubble Lead - This can only help you hit him more 
often if you can't target him that well. Since the first time you fight 
him, he will jump up and down inclines, this can help you attack from 
above safety.

Notes ----------- I believe you will drop from a freeze after a little 
while

Name ------------ Quick Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Quick Man, Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ A red robot with a yellow boomerang on its head.

Movement -------- Quick Man can really move! He will run and jump 
extremely high. He is also very hard to predict. To avoid him... stay 
away from him. It is hard to jump over him because he will usually jump 
when you jump, so it is a safe idea to just walk under him when he 
jumps. He will usually start off with a jump, and sometimes will run 
into the wall. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Quick Boomerang - He will throw three boomerangs out. 
Now if they are still on the screen, they will pop back towards you. 
The best way to dodge this is to just jump; he will usually throw them 
at you from above. Remember to watch them if they come around a second 
time. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - 7 hits will kill him, but he is hard to 
hit since he jumps a lot. Use this if you have nothing else. Make sure 
you ALWAYS jump and shoot, so he jumps into your bullets.

                - Time Stopper - The best choice for a weapon... this 
will freeze him and kill him a full pellet for every two that is used 
up. If you have full energy with this weapon, this boss can be killed 
half for free. Warning: If you have low life, don't use this unless he 
is half dead, so you don't waste it for nothing.

                - Air Shooter - I just like using this as it can hit 
him while he is in the air better than your normal gun.

                - Crash Bomb - This can do the same thing as what 
happens to freeze man, since Quick man spends a lot of times running 
into things in one place.

                - Bubble Lead - Although this will bounce off of him, 
it will also make him stop in his tracks and stand still on the ground. 
If you do this, you have very little time to switch weapons to damage 
him. This is funny actually.

                - Metal Blade - This does the same thing as Bubble 
Lead... only you can hit him in the air and it will allow you more time 
to change weapons.

                - Atomic Fire - This will do a good chunk of damage to 
him, especially on normal. This may be hard to hit him with, but at 
least you can focus on dodging while you charge it up.

Notes ----------- On Hard, the Stopper still does %50 of his health. He 
is the only strong Robot Master in my opinion.

Name ------------ Metal Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Metal Man, Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ A ninja like looking robot... with a buzz saw blade 
on his head.

Movement -------- Metal Man will just walk in place, until you shoot. 
Once you shoot, he will jump. If you shoot twice, he will likely jump 
higher. Then if you get close, he will jump clear across the room. 
Every time he jumps, he will attack. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Blade Toss - Every time Metal Man jumps, he will 
throw blades. Now the hard part is this, he can throw up the three off 
them, and he can do them in many different directions. The best way to 
avoid them is to learn is patterns, there is way too many to list and I 
doubt anyone would even understand them JUST from reading this... 
(Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This weapon takes 14 hits to kill him, 
making him a durable boss. Just make sure you jump and shoot, because 
you WILL miss him completely if you just stand as he will jump over 
them.

                - Quick Boomerang - This will just kill him "quicker." 
It is strong than the normal Mega Buster, but you must get close to 
him. You will most likely get hit a few times, but you will also deal 
more damage to him.

                - Metal Blade - Step 1: Go on Normal Difficulty. 
Step 2: Get to the second last stage. Step 3: Hit Metal man once with 
his own weapon. Step 4: Laugh.

Name ------------ Crash Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Crash Man, Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ A robot with a visor with two drill like hands.

Movement -------- He will just walk back and forth until you shoot. 
Once you shoot, he will jump. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Once he is in the air, he will throw down a Crash 
Bomb. Once it is in the ground for a little while, it will blow up. If 
you want to learn how to avoid this, read below. Make sure you remember 
to start this below pattern after his first jump, since he does that 
any ways. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - You will have to hit him 14 times with 
this weapon, but he is how to beat him without getting hit once. Did 
you ever notice how he only jumps and attacks when you shoot? Well this 
is the most important thing to know about. Now this is what you must 
do---> Jump and shoot in front of him (not two close as you don't want 
to bump into him). Now when you hit the ground he will probably be in 
the air throwing a Crash bomb at you. Once this happens, either keep 
walking in the same direction (if he is right above you and throwing 
the bomb downward.) or jump if he throws the bomb at a angle. 

                - Air Shooter - Once he jumps, hit him with this. You 
can kill him with once launch if you hit him with two parts of it. Use 
this if you can't grasp the concept of the above strategy.

                - Bubble Lead - Use this if you like the first way 
(with the Mega Buster) and want to hit him while higher so you don't 
miss. You do have to be closer to him...

                - Quick Boomerang - This will allow you to hit him 
twice if you choose to use the first method again. Once on the way up, 
and if you shoot about four times point blank in mid air, one should 
arc back and peg him.

Notes ----------- NONE

Name ------------ Bubble Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Bubble Man

Appearance ------ A green short Scuba diver.

Movement -------- He will stay on the ground for a while. Once he is 
done launching off his bubbles, he will then kick his legs into the air 
at an angle, then he will just come back down to land. This is easy to 
remember, trust me. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Bouncing Bubbles - When he is touching ground, he 
will throw out one to three bubbles. The best way to avoid these is to 
quickly see when they are going to touch the ground then stand just a 
little bit in front of it. They will all follow the same path, so if 
you dodge one, you can dodge them all. (Medium)

        --------- Water Gun - When ever Bubble Man is in the air or 
when he is about to launch a bubble or right when he lifts off, he will 
shoot out what looks like little air bubbles. Any ways, that only time 
he isn't doing this attack is when you are under him or when bubbles 
are just going out of him. To avoid these, you are probably going to 
have to fall through them. Always remember to jump right when he hits 
the ground or right when he lifts off. By the way, he only shoots when 
you are in front of him. (Light)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just make sure you shoot him when you 
can. When he is in mid air, only shoot him in the leg with a low jump 
so you don't get pegged in your face with his water gun.

                - Metal Blades - These will kill him in 4 shots, this 
will also let you stand under him and attack him. Another good this is 
that you don't have to risk jumping to attack him when he is air borne.

                - Quick Boomerang - This is stronger than the Mega 
Buster is but weaker than the blades. This weapon will allow you to hit 
him while you are jumping in the air... but you must get close.

Notes ----------- Using his own weapon on him will heal him.

Name ------------ Heat Man

Found in -------- Heat Man, Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ He is a giant zippo... 

Movement -------- Once you hit him, he will turn into fire and zoom 
himself across the room. To avoid this, you must jump ALL THE WAY over 
him, since he can reform right underneath you. (Heavy)

Attacks --------- Fire Toss - He will throw three fire balls in the 
air, once they touch the ground, they will make columns. Only the first 
one is hard to avoid, but if you attack him fast enough, you'll only 
see this attack once. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just seven hits will due, and he is 
dead.

                - Bubble Lead - 3 of these will kill him, you shouldn't 
have a problem.

Notes ----------- DO NOT USE CRASH ON HIM. I dare you to try it to him 
after you hit him twice with bubble.

Name ------------ Wood Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Wood Man, Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ He looks like a giant brown tree trunk that will beat 
his chest at times.

Movement -------- Here will stand still with his shield up, once he 
shoots it off, he will make a little jump towards you. Now once he 
reaches the other side, he will just turn around. If you are trying 
your hardest with ANYTHING but the Mega Buster on hard, you should 
never let him come close to touching you. (Heavy)

Attacks --------- Leaf Shield - This is one of the hardest things to 
jump in this game. He will put a shield made of four leaves up and then 
throw them at you. The ONLY way to avoid this is to make a BIG early 
jump. This takes all skill. (Heavy)

        --------- Leaf Rain - Once his shield is up, four leaves will 
fly above the screen and then fall. Now the part that is hard is that 
they not only wave back and forth on their way down, but they also fall 
right when the shield is being flung at you... They best way to avoid 
this is to stand in the far corner of the room. You will get hit if you 
just stand there, so just jump strait up at the right time (when it 
sways to the right). Once you land that, you should be ready to jump 
the shield that is on its way... If you move forward and jump, you will 
now be close to him and be able to do many things... (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - If you are using this, make sure you 
know how to dodge his many leaves the right way. If you are on normal 
and have full life, you can literally just sit and take one hit every 
time he shoots off stuff and takes off his shield. He is pretty hard to 
kill with this weapon on Hard... It takes 14 hits on normal by the way.

                - Crash Bomb - First off, this will go though his 
shield and deal him damage. Use this if you are far away and feel like 
getting a free 4 damage on him. Another thing you can do is shoot the 
bomb off just a little before he shoots his shield. If you hit his 
shield right in front of him, it will start to explode... now if he 
jumps into that, you will hit him about two times extra.

                - Air Shooter - This will kill him pretty fast and can 
even hit him twice with one shot. Want to know the best part? You can 
also hit him while he is in his shield! You must go really close.

                - Metal Blade - This will do about the same damage as 
the crash bomb, put will allow you to use it more. Use this if you want 
to hit him from afar and without the Atomic Fire...

                - Atomic Fire - On normal, this will kill him in ONE 
FREAKING HIT!  But you must charge this up till there is weird noise 
and you turn a greenish color. On hard it takes two hits...

Notes ----------- IF you are going to get hit, jump into the falling 
leaves... they hurt less.

jump fast. When you actually fight him, he will move up and down pretty 
fast, by this time, we won't ever touch you unless you jump into him. 
Oh, and he hurts if you do. (FATAL)

Attacks --------- Fire - It will breath fire at you... now here is the 
thing that will get you... not only does it do a little bit of damage,

That's all you get is three little blocks! Now you should stand on the 
tip of the top block, so when you get hit, you will most likely fall on 
to the second block. The reason this is so hard is because it is on the 
NES and the game slows down a real lot. You might notice fire going 
through you and falling backwards a little too much. Otherwise this 
attack isn't that bad in damage which is good since it is near 
impossible to dodge. (Medium)
                                               
Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Use this if you have balls to take a 
long fight or don't have balls to go close with quick. Make sure you 
hit him in the head.

                - Quick Boomerang - This will do twice as much damage 
your mega buster and will hit him at a lower spot since quick arcs 
down. He has very low invincibility frames, so with this weapon, you 
will mop him up really quick! 

                - Atomic Heat - On normal this will kill him half 
life... use this once a fight... charge up while you are about to fight 
him for a free big hit!

Notes ----------- This boss is one of the very few annoying ones in the 
series... make sure you don't touch him and if you get hit, DO NOT 
PRESS FORWARD UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING! If you think you are 
going to get hit, just stand there and let him knock you down to the 
second platform.

Appearance ------ Once you fall into the final room, they will animate

Movement -------- Once they form, two ends of the cube will come 
together in their midpoint. To avoid them, first stay were the middle 
is... then all you'll have to do is jump the very few low one. Watch 
out though, once you kill one, the next one will start the next 
instant. (Heavy)

Attacks --------- NONE

Optimum Weapons - Bubble Lead - Although you have to go close to them, 
this will kill them in one hit. The best way to use this on them is to 
jump high before them and let the bubble drop on them.

                - Metal Blade - This has the same power has the Mega 
Buster, but will allow you to kill them as fast as you can shoot since

Appearance ------ Remember guts man from the first Mega Man? Well 
imagine him with treads.

Movement -------- Once he comes out, he will move forward, then back 
once he touches the end. Don't worry, you can stand on the front part 
of him. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Plasma Ball - If you stand on him, he will usually 
shoot a bullet at you. This arcs up but isn't that hard to dodge. It 
will only do little damage. (Light)

        --------- Met - You remember those Mets that hide under their 
helmets? Well now they will pop out of his stomach... If you stay on 
the ground, they will pop out of him and bounce a bit. Just either 
stand next to him so they hop over you or learn how to easily jump over 
them. You can also destroy them. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This will kill him in 14 shoots, but 
only use this if you have trouble avoiding the mets, since this will 
also kill them with ease. Make sure you aim for the eyes!

                - Atomic Heat - Use this once a fight, before he 
actually comes into the screen. This will take a big chunk off his 
life.

                - Quick Boomerang - This will just kill him twice as 
fast as the Mega Buster, making a damage race way too easy for you.

Notes ----------- NONE

Name ------------ Wall Orbs
Hit points ------ Undefined 
Found in -------- Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ These are just semi circles on the wall. They have a 
spinning purple thingy in side them.

Movement -------- They don't move. (Medium)

Attacks --------- High Speed Plasma - All they can do is shoot at you. 
But this is beyond one of the fastest things in the game. Once you see 
their spinning purple thing stop spinning and create a large purplish 
area, they will shoot. The only really way to dodge this is to know 
where to jump... which is very hard to do. But you can cheese this by 
repeatedly pausing the game. This will make Mega Man undamagable and 
the shoots will pass right though you. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Crash Bomb - This is the only thing that can kill 
these, refer to the map.

                - Item 1 - Refer to the map.

                - Item 3 - Refer to the map.

Notes ----------- Here is what this boss looks like and what you have 
to do.

Start by using Item 1 to get up to the first orb. Hit it with a crash 
bomb. Then fall down to MID and kill the second one. Now just chill on 
the MID and blow up the wall and them orb 3. Now jump all the way in 
front of #4 and kill it, you will need to use Item 1 or Item 3 to get 
out of there. Now just wait and kill orb 5 with the wall in front of 
it.

If you want to try and beat this level with one crash bomb left over, 
shoot one next to the "X" This is hard to do, but it will destroy the 
first orb and the wall at the same time. By the way, C and a number 
will tell you where to place your bombs in order.

Name ------------ Dr. Wily 
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ A weird looking flying saucer type machine. This 
looks almost the same as the original Dr. Wily.

Movement -------- Back and forth... but not enough to crush you... but 
it will be enough to make his Plasma fire variable. If you got this 
far, you shouldn't touch him. (EXTREME)

Attacks --------- Upward Curving Plasma - The same crap as in the 
original, only this one will change its primary arc onto where you are. 
When he is really close to you, jump almost strait up or else you will 
jump into him! When he is far away, simply just jump over it. (Heavy)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This will damage him fast, and he has 
no invincibility frames. ONLY shoot him twice and ONLY when you are 
already jumping one of his attacks. If you do this, you will be able to 
beat him with ease. 

                - Atomic Heat - One charge up shoot will kill his first 
form out right. I didn't test this on Hard, but I'm sure it will just 
half his health...

                - Metal Blade - This will do the same damage as the 
your Mega Buster, only it can hit him three times per single jump. 
There is only one thing to remember, NEVER shoot him while on the 
ground. Sure you can kill him fast, but this is sloppy and will get you 
hit since you are stationary.

                - Crash Bomb - If you died and continued or saved one 
extra crash bomb from the orb fight, you can kill him in one well 
placed hit. If you hit him just under the orb, it will keep on 
exploding and will hit him if he travels through it. 

Notes ----------- If you want a quick way to kill him, use your heat on 
him, since it doesn't work on the second form. You should save all your 
Crash Bombs for the second form.

Name ------------ Dr. Wily (Revealed Space Ship)
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Wily Stage 5

Appearance ------ A weird looking flying saucer type machine. This 
looks almost the same as the original Dr. Wily. It will even still show 
him!

Movement -------- Back and forth... but not enough to crush you... but 
it will be enough to make his Plasma fire variable. If you got this 
far, you shouldn't touch him. (EXTREME)

Attacks --------- Bouncing Plasma - If you played Bubble Man, you 
should know what this look likes. Only one thing is different... you 
can't just stand somewhere and avoid all the attacks. You actually have 
to move through it. This is VERY hard to avoid, especially with all the 
lag involved. But... there is another way to make it through these 
attacks. You can also jump over them. This is made very well apparent 
if you use Air Shooter. (Heavy)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - If you didn't get hit the first time 
you played him, you can damage race him this time and win. Since this 
time you can hit him three times in mid air.

                - Air Shooter - This has the same power as the Mega 
Buster, but it can hit three times in one shoot. This is risky since 
you need to be closer, and if you miss with just one, you will have to 
wait until all your shoots leave the screen.

                - Quick Boomerang - This does the same thing as the 
Mega Buster, but will shoot so much faster and will probably allow you 
to hit him at least one more time per jump.

                - Metal Blades - Same as the first fight, only if you 
are getting hit, just aim up so your efforts aren't wasted.

                - Crash Bomb - If you died and continued or saved one 
extra crash bomb from the orb fight and the first Dr. Wily fight, you 
can kill him in one well placed hit. If you hit him just under the cock 
pit, it will keep on exploding and will hit him if he travels through 
it.

Notes ----------- Forget damage racing on Difficult, since you probably 
will not win. If you can't get the gist of dodging his attacks, you 
better have an energy tank or some Crash Bombs. There is now point 
saving your E tanks after this level, as the next level is cake as 
hell.

Name ------------ Alien Hologram 
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Wily Stage 6

Appearance ------ A green Alien, with red eyes.

Movement -------- This being will move around in a figure eight 
pattern... NEVER EVER JUMP INTO HIM. If you look at him for just 5 
second, you'll see everything you need to see. (EXTREME)

Attacks --------- Plasma - This looks just a little bigger than your 
Mega Buster does. He will only shoot it at certain times, always in the 
same intervals. You can dodge this just by jumping over it when you are 
low, or walking if it is high. NEVER EVER walk directly under him when 
he is about to cross the middle of the figure eight... he will usually 
always peg you with a hit. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Bubble Lead - This is the ONLY thing that can kill 
him. The best way to hit him is to jump right before he is up curving 
and pelt him with a few. Remember you can hit him with more than one 
Bubble each jump. Make sure you play it safe, because he can hurt you a 
lot more if he hits you.

Notes ----------- Every other weapon will heal him to full. Don't 
believe me? Try it! Even your Mega Buster and Flash Stopper will heal 
him.
