-----------------------------------About Me-----------------------------------

I have played Mega Man since literally the day I can remember. The first Mega
Man game I can remember playing is Mega Man 2 on the NES. The first Robot
Master I can remember fighting is Wood Man, which makes him one of my favorite
Robot Masters. Mega Man has always been my favorite video game icon since I
was a kid. I own every American released Classic Mega Man and Mega Man X game.
I don't really play the other series' though.

--------------------------------About This FAQ--------------------------------

I decided to write this FAQ for anyone who hasn't been into Mega Man for very
long and wants to better themselfs at fighting the Robot Masters with only the
Mega Buster. I decided to include some videos of me fighting the Robot Masters
just incase you can't understand what I am saying in this FAQ, you will have a
visual example to go off of. I hope this guide helps you!

I have covered all the Robot Master Battles from Mega Man's 1 - 10, Mega Man &
Bass. The Stardroids from Mega Man V, the Mega Man Killers, the Doc Robots
from Mega Man 3, and Bonus Battles against Mega Man Himself, Dark Man, and
Fake Man I hope this guide helps you out! If you don't understand what I am
saying in this FAQ, then follow the links after each Robot Master description
to see a video of me personally taking out the Robot Masters, hopefully a
visual example will help! If you like what you see then Subscribe to me on
youtube, my username on there is Redmage1987. If you need help on any of the
other Robot Masters, check out my guides for them on their FAQ Page.

----------------------------------MEGA MAN 7----------------------------------

Mega Man 7 was one of my favorites growing up. However most people consider it
to be very bad. I liked it a lot, I didn't think the weapons were too bad, I
loved the music, I liked the Robot Masters, It combined the 2 Rush Suits from
Mega Man 6, and it gave Beat a new use.

------Spring Man------

Difficulty: 4/10

Wild Coil----- 2
Head Slam----- 8
Spring Punch-- 3
Collision----- 4

Spring Man isn't too bad. At the start of the fight he will jump to the center
of the room and strecth his arms out to punch you, slide right before he
releases the punch, which is signaled by him spinning his arms. After that he
will land and release 2 Wild Coils and jump around. You can destroy the Wild
Coils with 2 Mega Buster shots or 1 Charged Shot. Avoid letting Spring Man get
to you otherwise he will grab you and slam your head into the ceiling. Slide
under him when you have the chance.

Spring Man's Fight is from 0:01 - 0:50

------Freeze Man------

Difficulty: 7/10

Icicle ----------- 2
Freeze Cracker---- 1
Collision--------- 3

There is a lot going on in this fight to pay attention to. He will most of the
time freeze the ground and right after that he will freeze the ceiling,
resulting in Icicles falling to the ground, you must dodge all of the icicles
while getting around him on a slippery floor. You can make him jump by
shooting at him. So shoot him and then slide under him to avoid him. The
direction the icicles fall in depends on where he was when he froze the
ceiling. If he was on the right side they will fall from right to left, if he
was on the left side they will from from left to right, and if he was in the
middle they will go both left and right from the center. The Icicles also
break the ice on the floor. He will occassionaly shoot a ball of ice at you,
jump over it, and be careful not to be hit by the fragments that are shattered
from it when it hits the wall, otherwise you will be frozen, if you get frozen
button mash like crazy to break out faster.

Freeze Man's Fight is from 0:51 - 1:46

------Slash Man------

Difficulty: 9/10

Slash Claw--- 2
Air Dive----- 4
Collision---- 4

Slash Man can be very tricky. At the start of the fight he will either jump at
you and slash or jump into the ceiling and drop eggs onto you and the floor.
If an egg lands on you or if you step into the goo it put on the floor, button
mash like crazy to get free from it as soon as possible. When he comes down
from the ceiling, if he is on the opposite side of the room stand next to the
wall and slide under him as charges at you, sometimes he will just drop down
from the wall though. If he is on the same side as you, you can go under him
and if he charges, he will land right next to you, slide under him after he
jumps, you risk taking damage though if you decide to stand under him as he
comes down from the ceiling though, because he sometimes will just drop onto
you. If he drops, try to slide out from under him quickly. When he is out on
the battle field, if he gets next to you, he will try to slash you, jump to
avoid it and unload normal shots and charged shots on him.

Slash Man's Fight is from 1:47 - 3:07

------Junk Man------

Difficulty: 4/10

Junk Piles---- 2 (The Junk that Junk Man throws and falls from the ceiling)
Junk Block---- 3
Junk Shield--- 0 (It only holds you in place)
Collision----- 4

Junk Man is one of the easier Robot Masters to fight with the Mega Buster. At
the start of the fight he will jump straight up and land, causing junk to fall
from the ceiling. Jump right before he lands, otherwise you will be stuck in
the junk on the floor temporarly. To avoid the falling junk, just stay against
the wall and slide out from under any that is coming at you. After that attack
is over, he will hold out the big magnet on his arm and gather some junk and
create a block of junk, he will then punch it at you, you can't hurt him as he
is bring in the junk, so prepare a charged shot in the mean time. After he has
punched the block of junk, jump over it and try to release the well timed
charged shot right as he jumps, if you do it too soon, it won't hurt him.
He will now land on the block of junk, destorying it. He will now use his Junk
Shield, just slide under him and slide under the shield when he throws it off.
He will now jump to the center of the room, then to the left wall, and jump
from the left wall to the right wall, throwing some junk at you as he jumps
from the left wall to the right wall. Just slide to avoid it. This may seem
like it's a lot or trouble, but it's not.

Junk Man's Fight is from 3:08 - 4:14

------Shade Man------

Difficulty: 5/10

Blood Suck----------- 6
Collision------------ 4
Noise Crush---------- 2
Charged Noise Crush-- 4

The only annoying part about Shade Man is waiting for him to come down so you
can pummel him. At the start of the fight, he will fly to the top of the room
and stay up there for a bit. He will stop try and swoop down and grab Mega
Man, try to stay under him when he is flying and slide away from him when he
swoops down to get you. If he does get you, button mash to get free from him
quickly. To avoid getting caught you can also stay in the middle and just
slide away from him when he swoops down. After trying to swoop down and get
you 2 times, he will come down to the ground, once he has landed, he will fire
2 rays from his eyes, if they hit Mega Man, he will be turned to stone. Jump
over both of the rays and let loose a charged shot and normal shots on him. He
will follow up the Stone Rays with his Noise Crush attack. Jump over both
sound waves and they will bounce back and when they hit him, he will shoot the
charged form of it, which is bigger and a bit faster, just jump over them or
slide under them to avoid them. Now he will fly back up again, just repeate.

Shade Man's Fight is from 4:15 - 5:12

------Burst Man------

Difficulty: 5/10

Danger Wrap Bombs-- 4
Collision---------- 4

Burst Man isn't that hard. At the start of the fight he should release 3
bubbles from his head. If you touch these bubbles, they will bounce you into
the wall and most likely from the wall back into them. You can destroy these
bubbles with either 2 Normal Shots or 1 Charged Shot. Charged Shots usually
are better because they destroy 2 with 1 shot. After releasing the 3 bubbles,
he should shoot 3 Bubbles with Bombs in them (Danger Wrap) at you, jump over
these bubbles, if you get cought the bubble will start rising, shoot like mad.
If you get close to the spikes on the ceiling, slide and the bubble will pop
on the spikes, leaving you alive. Release a Charged Shot on Burst Man when you
get the chance, this should knock him back, If the charged shot connects he
will also drop bombs all over the place, just wait for the right timing and
jump to avoid damage. With good accuracy you can even hit Burst Man when he is
shooting the Danger Wrap Bubbles at you.

------Turbo Man------

Difficulty: 5/10

Scorch Wheel-- 6
Fireballs----- 2
Car Mode Ram-- 6
Collision----- 4

Turbo Man isn't that hard, but he can be. At the start of the battle he will
begin his scorch wheel attack and jump into the air and shoot it down at you
it's tragectory and angel that it's shot at depends on where you are at when
he shoots it off at you. Stand right next to wall and slide toward him when he
shoots it and stand near him and slide back towards the wall when the wheel
splits into individual fireballs to avoid it or stand next to him depending on
how they fireballs split up. Next he will try to pull you towards him. Either
pelt him with normal shots and slide away to keep from running into him or hit
him with a charged shot to make him stop. Next he will transform into car mode
and do a burnout then fly at you. Jump when the burnout squeeling ends and the
accelerating noise begins to go over him, he will do that some more, just
dodge him the same way until he quits. The he will start all over again.

Turbo Man's Fight is from 6:39 - 7:27

------Cloud Man------

Difficulty: 5/10

Thunder Bolt--- 3
Thunder Balls-- 2 (The ones that go along the ground)
Colission------ 4

Cloud Man isn't that hard, even with the weather messing with you at the same
time. When the fight starts he will hover in the air and summon a lightning
bolt, the bolt will hit him, then he will fire it at you, wait a second after
the bolt hits him and jump to avoid it when it is shot at you, if you time the
jump wrong on accident, you should still be able to slide under it. You can't
hurt him right after he is hit by a Thunder Bolt, so wait a second before
trying to shoot him and if the Thunder Bolt hits the ground it will send
electral balls along the ground, just jump over them to avoid them. Next he
will float to the ground and summon another lightning bolt, this should cause
it to rain, run or slide against the rain in whatever direction it is blowing
you and after it has started to rain he will summon another 2 lightning bolts,
both of which, after hitting him, will cause 4 electral bolts to go along the
ground, 2 to the left of him and 2 to the right jump over them. Now he will
float up a little bit and fly back and forth for a second, slide under him to
avoid him. After that he should repeat all this again.
