     BOSSES - MM4
o---------------------o

Brightman (025)
---------
He got a light bulb on his head. His attacks are buster shots n' a bright flash
of light that freezes you. He also tries to jump on you. All seven of your Rain
Flushes will take him out.

Pharaohman (026)
----------
He shoots small Pharaoh Shots and hops around. When he stands still and lifts a
finger, he is charging up his Big Pharaoh Shot, which is the size of Megaman. 
Try not to be hit by that. Brightman can freeze him and give a chance to pump 
slugs into him.

Drillman (027)
--------
He likes to burrow a lot. When he goes underground, do not stand still. Move 
around and he'll pop up. He'll also attack with Drill Bombs so watch out for 
those too. Dive Missiles will put an end to his chaos.

Ringman (028)
-------
He follows a pattern. He will shoot a Ring Boomerang from the ground and jump 
to catch it then throw one in the air and charge at you while he catches that 
Ring Boomerang. With Big Pharaoh Shots, he's a dead duck.

Toadman (029)
-------
Stay close to him and all he'll do is try to jump on you. Do not give him a 
chance to use his Rain Flush. It will hit you no matter what. When he raises 
his hands and shakes his hips, he'll use it. Drillman is good for this job.

Dustman (030)
-------
Dustman throws trash at you that splits into 4 then tries to suck you in. Ring
Boomerangs are your best choice here.

Diveman (031)
-------
Diveman likes to charge a lot and send missiles. Use Skull Barrier to beat him.
Activate the Skull Barrier and try to touch him with it and hopefully not your 
body.

Skullman (032)
--------
He has the best theme music in this game. He'll shoot normal shots at you then 
activate his Skull Barrier. When he lets his shield down, he will charge you. 
Get him with Dust Crusher.

Mothraya
--------
The first Cossack Boss. Flies back and forth shooting energy balls then will
drill a hole in the ground. Be careful when it drills in the same spot because 
falling through it will kill you. Ring Boomerangs will get the job done.

Square Machine
--------------
It will divide in three parts. The top and bottom goes in one direction and the
middle goes in the other direction. It will make 2 or 3 passes. Only the bottom
half is dangerous. When it starts moving real slow on its 2nd or 3rd pass, it 
will reassemble and shoot bullets at you. Be sure to be inside the boss when it
reassembles so you an jump on one of the platforms and shoot the big red dot in
the top center with Drill Bombs or Dust Crushers.

Cockroach Twin
--------------
There are two of these you must defeat. The first one will only stay on the
ceiling and shoot down at you. After you beat that one, another one comes out
and circles the whole room and shoots at you. Just stay in one spot and use
Pharaoh Shots fully charged on both of them.

Dr. Cossack
-----------
He moves around shooting at you and moving around in a big machine. Never stay
directly under him or he'll pick you up and damage you when he drops you. Beat
him and you'll see he meant no harm. Your Mega Buster is good enough.

Metall Daddy
------------
He is invincible with his hat down. When he stands he will jump up into the air
and try to crush you. Each time he lands, 4 Metalls will fall and then they'll
walk away.

Octopus Furnace
---------------
This robot is like a giant version of the Gachappons you meet throughout some 
stages. Ride the platforms and avoid the fireballs it spits and the exploding 
balls it launches from its back. Use Ring Boomerangs on its forehead jewel.


Dr. Wily Machine 4 Phase 1 and 2
--------------------------------

Phase 1: He moves up and down shooting fireballs. Stay real close to him and 
they won't even touch you.

Phase 2: He'll move back and forth shooting fireballs at your location. If you
have Drill Bombs, launch them and manually explode them before they hit the 
green jewel to cause damage. Wily will fly away after defeat.

Dr. Wily Capsule
----------------
He'll appear then send an electric ball at you. Avoid them and memorize where 
Wily was when appeared then disappeared. After the electric ball leaves, he'll
be in that spot for a second or two.

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

                                  Toadman
                           Weakness: Drill Bomb
                            Get: Rain Flush

Enemies: Amoeba, Rakasa, Giant Escargot, Ratton, Swallown, Guotot

Toadman is my first pick.  There is a strong gust of wind that pushes against
you as you run right. The Swallown and the Rakasa will obstruct you.  You will
eventually drop two screens. Move right and kill the Rattons and Amoeba. Don't
stand still or the waterfalls will drop you to your doom. At the end, you will
drop two more screens.  You now fight a Giant Escargot that is only vulnerable 
when its eyes are open. Dodge its bombs and eyes and hit it in the eyes with 6
Mega Buster shots. Head right and drop down two more screens and fight another
Giant Escargot, this time you have a waterfall disturbing you. After that one
is gone, head right and hop across the platform and avoid the Gyotots. Enter 
the gate and fight Toadman. 

Stay close to him so he won't use his Rain Flush. He'll most likely hop at you.
Shoot him when he comes down. If he raises his hand then shoot him and he won't
try to use the Rain Flush. 7 Drill Bombs will beat him or 28 Buster shots will
do.

                                  Brightman
                           Weakness: Rain Flush
                            Get: Flash Stopper

Enemies: 100 Wattn, Battan, Dopan, Totem Polon, Fan Blade, Gachappon

As you move right, you will deal with 100 Wattns that make the screen go dark 
when killed and light the screen back up through time or by killing a Dompan. 
On the next screen, kill the Totem Polon and hop onto the Battan. Kill the 
Totem Polon in the way and hop onto the other Battan. When you're safely across
the spikes, Climb up the ladder and if you take the right ladder via Rush Coil,
you'll get a large energy-up. Drop back down and kill the Gachappon then take 
the left ladder. Head right, kill the Fan Blades and slide to the next screen.

If you want the 1-up and E-Tank bad enough then take the first ladder you see 
down, then head right across the foot holders. The red ones will fall and the
green ones stay on. Grab the items and on the way back, take the green foot 
holder and drop to the floor and then Rush Coil your way back and go back up 
the ladder. Head right and hop onto the Battans and ride them to ladder on the 
end. Kill any Totem Polon in the way. Climb up and ignore the Fan Blade and 
climb up the ladder on the left. At the top, hop across the foot holders and 
at the last foot holder, jump off and shoot the 100 Wattn and the Dopan and 
enter the gate. 

The object here is to hit Brightman with every Rain Flush in your arsenal if 
you have a full bar like you should. Brightman fires normal shots in multiple
directions and ocassionally, flash the screen with the light bulb on his head.
You'll be frozen in your tracks, so by pure luck you'll avoid any damage that
he may attempt.

                                  Pharoahman
                           Weakness: Flash Stopper
                            Get: Pharaoh Shot

Enemies: Sand Scorpion, Mummira, Hover, Desert Fly, Battonton

Be careful not to sink in the sand or you will die. Keep moving as you shoot
through the Sand Scorpions and dodge bullets from the Desert Flies above. When
you reach the pit, normally you jump into it but skip it and keep moving ahead
instead and you'll obtain the Balloon Adapter. 

You'll teleport out and re-enter in the spot you have entered if you had died 
sometime after entering the pit. Head right and kill the Battontons
(them and the Metalls never give up do they?) The Hovers shoot at you when
their eyes open so watch out. At the end, drop down two screens and head right.
Manuever through those Hovers and watch out for the Mummiras who through
their heads at you. 

Pharaohman is ready for a beatdown. Just use the Flash Stopper and cap him to 
death. Without the Flash Stopper, it will be a tougher fight since he does have
his own charge shot that can do a lot of damage.

Enemies: Saturn Seeker, Garyoby, Hippoplater, Whapper, Wall Blaster, MonoRoader

Jump off the rainbow platform to the left and kill the Wall Blaster and head 
for the ladder. Remember that the rainbow platform disappear beneath your feet.
So slide or wait for it to be in the middle of reformation before you move 
across the platform. Keep climbing up avoid the Wall Blaster shots and Saturn
Seekers and at the top, hop right. A Hippoplatter will appear. Shoot the stand
blocks beneath it and get in the shots at Hippoplatter when you have the chance
Be sure to shoot its missiles. Go right and move through the rainbow platforms
while killing the Saturn Seekers and avoiding the  Garyobys whom act like the
Gabyoalls (MM1) and Springers (MM2). Drop and you'll face a pair of eyes called
the Whapper surrounded by rings that shoot the rings in 6 directions (and it is
thankfully not straight ahead). Wait a few seconds then time a Mega Buster shot
into its eyes when it shoots the rings. 3 Charge Buster Shots will kill it.

Drop down and face another Hippoplatter. Kill it like before and go right. Use
Rush Coil or the Balloon to reach the ladder then take whatever item Eddie will
give you and head back down. Head right and kill the MonoRoaderss and maneuver
through the disappearing platforms that work like the rainbow platforms and 
make it to the safety while killing Saturn Seekers. Climb down and get off the
platform to the right immediately and wait for it to reform before you head 
back across it. Go down the ladder and kill another Whapper and slide to the 
right and enter the gate to face Ringman. 

Charge up you Pharaoh Shot and blast Ring Man with it as he runs his pattern. 
That consists of throwing a ring then jumping to retrieve it hen while still in
air, through another ring and drop down then charge you will retrieving it. 
With this knowledge, you can take him.

Enemies: Metall, Jumbig, Shield Attack, Upndown, Gachappon, Bug Copter

Looking at this stage, Trashman should have been his name. Move right and kill
the Metalls and don't worry much about the Shield Attackers. When jumping over 
pits, be sure to kill the Upndowns the moment they come out or they'll knock 
you into the pit. At the end, drop down two screens, head right and kill the 
Jumbigs and while hopping across the forming blocks, kill the Bug Copters.Climb
up, take what Eddie gives you, and keep climbing up. You'll notice the ceiling 
rising and falling. Shoot the blocks away as much as you can. The only ones you
really need to shoot are the ones that will crush you. 

After two sets, slide right and shoot some blocks and slide back left before 
you get crushed to death. After clearing enough blocks, make a break for it and
head to the next screen. Kill the Gachappon, climb up, kill the Jumbig and then
enter the gate. 

Dustman fires blocks that split when they get to your location or hit you. On
ocassion, he'll use the vacuum cleaner on the top of his head to draw you into
him. He is invincible while doing so. Just hang in there and kill him with 
Ringman's Ring Boomerang.

you reach a ladder and watch out for the Shield Attackerand Battonton on the 
way. Climb up and get Eddie's item and continue up. 

On the way up the big ladder, run right and try to avoid the Shield Attackers 
as much as you can and get the E-Tank and large energy-up if you need it and 
head back to the ladder and climb up. Move right and kill the Skulmets and the
Inorms and drop down and make a leap of faith to the left and kill the Inorm 
and Skulmet and get the E-Tank, kill the Inorm and slide safely to the right.

Skeleton Joes and enter the gate.

Skullman will remain still until you shoot at him or run at him. If the former,
he'll jump at you and activate his Skull Barrier, when he lowers it, he will
charge you. If the latter, he will shoot normal shots at you. Try not to touch
his body much and you should come out ok with help of the Dust Crusher.

As you head right, you'll go through a lot of enemies. Gyotots, Garyobys, Sea
Mines, Underwater Metalls, Mantas, and to make matters worse, a Moby. Avoid the
Moby's torpedoes and mines that pull you towards it as well. Keep shooting and
it will fall. Keep moving past the Mantas and sea Metalls and climb the
ladder and get what Eddie has to offer and continue up. Head right and kill the
Jumbig and drop down two screens and you're back underwater. Now you got Mantas
to deal with too. The water level rises up and down so time your jumps to clear
the Mantas. Take out a Moby and drop down the pit to the bottom and get the 
Wire Adapter. You'll be back at the spot before the Moby have to make your up 
to it and kill it again. This time keep going and now you got mines and spikes
in the mix. Give me a break already! When the water stops rising up and down, 
you're almost there. Just stick it out and you'll reach the gate. 

Diveman charges at you three times then he shoots missiles. The Skull Barrier 
can both protect you from the missiles and do damage to Diveman as well. It'll
help if you have full power already.

down some more. Get the 1-up carefully and keep going down. The spikes above 
won't touch you so don't hesitate in jumping over the spikes below. Climb the 
ladder, kill the Super Ball Cannons and climb the ladder. Use the Rush Coil or
better yet the Wire to reach the E-Tank. Head rigt and kill the MonoRoaders
and get Skull Barrier ready. The Boulders that fall will destroy the Barrier 
but not hurt you. Once through the rocks and copterbots, head through the gate
to face Drillman. 

He'll burrow a lot and try to surprise attack you. Don't stand still for any
length of time. He'll also jump around and run around throwing Drill Bomb.

                                     Drill Bomb

Enemies: Jumbig, Turret, Garyoby, Saturn Seeker, Biree

This stage scrolls right. It is full of turrets and Birees. When you stop, a 
Jumbig appears. Kill it and climb the ladder. Use Drill Bombs on the Garyobys 
and climb the ladder. The screen scrolls right again but only a few Saturn
Seekers will bother you. The floating platforms will provide you with step to 
use. On the last one, stay on until you can jump right. To get the E-Tank,
make a Balloon and slide left. Slide back out and face the next boss. 

There are actually 2 bosses. The first boss will stay on the ceiling and shoot 
at you. Use the overhead Pharaoh Shot to hit him then release B button to shoot
another Big Pharaoh Shot. Keep doing it till ths boss explodes. Another boss 
appears and scales the surfaces. Use the same strategies here except you can 
shoot it when he's on a wall.

                                Cossack Stage 4
                                Boss: Dr. Cossack
                           Weakness: Dust Crusher

Enemies: Shield Attaker, Tom Boy, Docron, 

Drop down a few screens and get whatever items needed then go right and climb 
up the ladder. You have two paths to take: up the ladder or a big drop. I'll 
take the drop. Use Wire to pull yourself to the barrier and use Drill Bomb on
it. Drop down and see we have an E-Tank for the taking. Use the Drill Bomb to
get it and climb down and head right. Kill the slinkies and you'll see that 
you've avoided the Shield Attacker. 

Keep going till you drop down 2 screens. Head right and kill the Docrons. You 
now face Dr. Cossack himself. 

Avoid being directly below him at all costs. He'll grab you and slam you for 
damage. Avoid his bullets and use the Mega Buster to defeat him. After 
the fight, Protoman will appear with a girl named Kalinka. Kalinka will beg 
Megaman not to hurt her father anymore because she explains that Wily took her
hostage to make Cossack fight you. Cossack will come down and ask you for your
forgiveness. Wily enters and reprimands Protoman for his betrayal and vows to 
break you. OOH I'M REALLY SCARED!

                                Wily Stage 1
                                Boss: Metall Daddy
                           Weakness: Dust Crusher

Enemies: Ballet Met, Garyoby

Climb up, kill the Metalls and climb up again. Kill those Metalls (some who act
like ballerinas) and continue climbing. Head right and kill those Metalls and
drop down 2 screens into the water. Watch out for the spikes on the left upon
entry. Manuever through the sea Metalls and spikes and make it to the ladder. 
Be sure to Drill Bomb the Garyoby. 

Ah! It's are favorite obstacle, the reappear/disappear blocks. This pattern is 
simple, hop on the first block, jump up onto the next block and the rest is 
history. In the next screen, one wrong move and you're dead. So let's cheat 
shall we? >:) Use Rush Jet to the right and Wire Up and to the ladder we go. 
"Cheaters never prosper" is a load of crap in this case. Head right and get 
the E-Tank and ignore some of the Metalls. The next boss is waiting for you. 

This boss is a giant Metall called Metall Daddy. Watch out for it stomps. 
Metalls will fall and walk towards you when it stomps too. Use Ring Boomerangs 
or Dust Crusher on this boss.

                                Wily Stage 2
                                Boss: Octopus Furnace
                           Weakness: Ring Boomerang
                                     
Enemies: Gachappon, Mummira, Battonton, Bug Copter, MonoRoader

Slide into the top narrow passage and head for the ladder and climb down. Kill
the Bug Copter and climb down that ladder. Get the E-Tank if you need it and
drop down and be careful of the spikes. Kill whatever enemy you come across and
use the Balloon to get to the ladder. Get whatever Eddie has to offer then,
climb up the right ladder.  Head right and deal with the Mummiras and climb up.
You almost can't see the Battontons because of the background. Take them out 
and use Rush Coil to reach the ladder. Any ladder doesn't matter as long as you
reach the ladder on the next screen. Kill the MonoRoaders and climb up another
ladder. Kill the Gachappons and enter the gate to fight a gigantic version
of the Gachappon called the Octopus Furnace. 

Ride the platforms and use Ring Boomerangs on the green jewel on its forehead. 
7 hits are all it takes. Watch out for the Giant Bombs and fireballs.

Enemies: Drillman, Brightman, Skullman, Diveman, Toadman, Pharoahman, Ringman,
Dustman, Fan Blade, Shield Attacker

Gather the items and drop down. Keep going down through Cross Shields and Leaf
Ballerinas. You'll eventually reach a teleporter and will drop down a steep
shaft and here is the order of bosses.


Drill	        Pharaoh
Bright	        Ring
Skull Dive Toad Dust

Beat all 8 robots like before and face Wily. Get close and use Buster Shots. 
His shots will sail over you. Next, Wily will switch to a new Machine that 
shoots wherever you are unless you're below or behind him. Use Drill Bombs here
Toss a Drill Bomb and manually explode it in front of the green jewel. When the
battle is over, the war is not.

Drop down. Shoot all the Inorms and fight Wily for the final time. At least 
until Megaman 5. Keep an eye for where the energy ball goes. Wily will flash 
his location before firing. Pharaoh Shot will give you your 4th victory against
Wily. You and Wily escape before the lab goes Boom!
