     [ I. ]  INTRODUCTION
     =================================================================
    
     Hi! This is the unofficial Megaman: The Power Battle (TPB)
     strategy guide. Hopefully this guide will help you while you play
     the game. I would like  to note that Megaman: TPB is a fighting
     style game (like Street Fighter II) and not a side scroller like
     the rest of the games in the Mega Man series. This game features
     many bosses from the original 7 games. The game's music comes
     from the original 7 games but was amplified to appeal to most
     players
    
     (I personally prefer the music from this game better then the
     originals).
    
     Do keep in mind when reading this guide that this was my first
     attempt at a guide and there may be some errors in it.

     [ VI.  ]  STRATIGIES AND GAMEPLAY TIPS
     =================================================================
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
     [ i.   ]  2-Player Mode
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
     - Don't have two players fire at a robot master at the same time.
     Once a robot master has been hit it becomes invincible for about
     half-a-second. Have one player shoot at the robot master and have
     the other charge up, and vice-versa.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
     [ ii.  ]  Megaman 1+2 Fighting Order
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
     - Here is the order which I took: Heat Man --> Wood Man -->
     Cut Man --> Crash Man --> Guts Man --> Ice Man.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
     [ iii. ]  Megaman 3-6 Fighting Order
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
     - Here is the order which I took: Gyro Man --> Plant Man -->
     Dust Man --> Magnet Man --> Gemini Man --> Napalm Man.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
     [ iv.  ]  Megaman 7 Fighting Order
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
     - Here is the order which I took: Slash Man --> Shade Man -->
     Turbo Man --> Cloud Man --> Junk Man --> Freeze Man.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
     [ v.   ]  Versus Dr. Wily
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
     - While the doc is in his second form always stay under him to
     dodge his attacks, but be careful because sometimes he swoops
     down from above you in order to hit you.

     [Roll and Mega Man enters Dr. Light's lab]
    
     Roll: Welcome back Megaman. Glad to see you made it.
    
     Mega Man: Yeah. But Dr. Wily got away again.
    
     [Dr Light enters]
    
     Dr Light: I'm glad to see you came back in one piece.
    
     Mega Man: Even so, if things don't change, the battle against Dr.
     Wily will never end.
    
     Dr Light: It's just like but, this time we learned what robots
     really need.
    
     [Screen focuses on Auto]
    
     Auto: Yeah, a hero like me, right?
    
     [Screen changes back]
    
     Dr Light: Well... Not quite.
    
     Mega Man: What exactly do we robots need?
    
     Dr Light: Like humans, the robot has to determine what is right
     and what is wrong by itself. Robots are not supposed to hurt
     humans. We need to research more on A.I. program.
    
     Mega Man: When will there be world peace?
    
     Dr Light: That will be up to us.
    
     Mega Man: Okay, I'll fight for everyone's future.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
     [ ii.  ]  Proto Man
     -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Protoman... Who is he?
    
     Protoman, Dr. Light's first ever built robot just before
     completion, he ran away and vanished.
    
     He appears before Megaman from time to time and mysteriously
     disappears.
    
     Is he friend or foe? Where is he off to?
    
     Nobody knows.

     [Standing on a cliff with Wily's lab burning in the background]
    
     Wily: Noooo...! My laboratory! Bass, what are you doing!?
    
     Bass: Now you know that I am the strongest. There's no need for
     you to make any more junk robots.
    
     Wily: The strongest huh? You've been beaten by Megaman before.
    
     [Screen Switches]
    
     Bass: I underestimated him that time. But I will conquer him this
     time!
    
     Wily: Yeah right. You can battle with Megaman all you want. The
     robot that I'm making right now will blow the both of you away.
    
     Bass: Ha! All you make is junk. Do what you want.
    
     Wily: Wait. Wait Bass. Don't leave me here!
