=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
MegaMan Battle Network 2 was released a LONG time ago, but the magic of the
definition of a perfect MegaMan RPG remains. Battle Network 2 consisted of
the exact right balance of difficulty and fun, battles and puzzles, trivia
and seriousness. Hopefully, this guide can retain some of those elements as
the reader plays the game. The game is still on my top ten games for a
handheld system, proving that it stands the test of time.

My guide aims to lead the player through the game efficiently and with little
effort. It is detailed and very accurate. I also list my own folder that I
recommend at stages in the game and it proved to be deadly at all stages of
the game for me.

This guide took me a long time to complete, so I hope any commentary or
criticism is well justified and that this document is not defaced by not
abiding to the simple legal terms given.

VERY Quick FAQ...
-----------------
Why the hell did I bother writing this guide?
A) I wanted something to do over the summer break
B) FAQ writing happens to be a hobby of mine. No, I don't do it for money.
Since I live in Australia, I can't enter any of those Contests and what-not.
C) I want to write a very detailed guide on MMBN2. The other guides I have
seen were good enough to get me through the game, but not excellent. They
lack certain details or aren't specific enough for my liking.

What am I doing next?
I'm constantly undecided. I find confining myself only makes me wander more.
Whatever I feel like doing next, I'll do. Another update of one of my other
non-finalised guides may be in order...

I tell thee now, spoilers ahead. This is my official warning!

START MENU
----------
The Start Menu can be accessed by pressing START in a normal situation. There
are several options to access from the Start Menu;
Option:			Details:
Folder			Go down
Subchips		Use Subchips
Library			View the Encyclopedia of Battle Chips (think: Pokedex)
MegaMan			Go down
Mail			View e-mails that are sent
Key Items		View key items vital for game progress
Network			Go down
Save			Save your game
Return			Return to the game (You can also just press START
			again)

FOLDER: Press A on which folder you wish to access. You can view the chips
contained in your folder in greater detail and exchange with your Pack, which
contains all Battlechips you have collected. Use Left/Right to access the
Pack and Folders. Press A to move chips around. Press A twice on a chip
in your Pack to move it to an empty space in your Folder (if there are any)
and press A twice in your Folder to move it to your Pack. Press START when
examining your Folder in greater detail and Pack to be able to sort chips by:
ID No. -	In order of the chips in the Library
Alphabetical -	In order of the alphabet
Code -		In order of code from A to Z
Attack -	In order of attack power
Element -	Grouped by elements ie. fire, aqua, wood, thunder, neutral
Quantity -	Grouped by the number of a certain chip
Capacity -	Grouped by MB required to preset/register that chip

This sorting feature is very useful for when you have many chips in your
Pack and want to sift through them for the right chips. When selecting the
category to sort by, pressing A again will sort it in reverse order, for
example in decreasing and increasing order.

When examining chips, the details are provided on the left of the screen and
main details about the chip (name, code and MB) are provided on the right.

Press SELECT on a chip to preset it. If MegaMan doesn't have the capacity,
the chip will not be preset. MegaMan's capacity appears on the top right
of the screen in the Folder Menus.

MEGAMAN: View MegaMan's status. You can view his HP and special categories:
* All are by default 1 except HP which starts off as 100.
Level - MegaMan cannot level up without a PowerUP. He increases by 4 levels
	for every PowerUp and 1 for every HPMemory.
Attack - MegaMan's raw damage with the MegaBuster.
Rapid - How quickly MegaMan fires with his MegaBuster.
Charge - How quickly MegaMan charges his MegaBuster. MegaMan can only charge
	 after acquiring a level 2 in this category. Damage from a charged
	 attack is equal to five times the attack power MegaMan has.

MegaMan can upgrade any of the three attributes by using a PowerUp. He can
increase his HP with a HPMemory which increases HP by 20. MegaMan's level
is calculated from his three attributes and his HP.

After purchasing a PowerUP -
When the option to upgrade appears, enter this Menu and MegaMan asks "Upgrade
what?" Choose an attribute and press A to increase the level. The maximum
level for each attribute is 5 and the maximum HP MegaMan can have is 1000.
Therefore, the maximum level is 100.

Early in the game, MegaMan gains memory (denoted in MB). He begins with 4MB.
MB is used to preset/register a Battlechip, which means it will appear 100%
of the time when a battle begins. Normally, 5 chips are randomly selected from
your Folder. The MB a chip has is how much MegaMan requires to preset that
chip. MegaMan can increase his MB to a maximum of 50 to preset many more
Battlechips. The rare items required to do this are RegUPs. MegaMan's capacity
can only be viewed in the Folder Menus.

A picture of MegaMan is on the left. When MegaMan acquires the Style Change,
a new option appears to change MegaMan's style. MegaMan's default style is
neutral. Use this option to change MegaMan from neutral to ... style. MegaMan
can have up to two more options of styles than his neutral style. When another
style is accessed, the player must choose which styles to keep. With a style
change, MegaMan's element changes and he becomes weak to certain elements.

For future reference, the elemental cycle is like so:
Element:	Weakness:	Strength:
Fire		Aqua		Wood
Aqua		Electric	Fire
Electric	Wood		Aqua
Wood		Fire		Electric
Neutral		--		--

If an element is strong against another element, it deals double damage to it
and if it is weak to another element, it takes double damage from it.

It is also somewhat important noting that SubMemories are used to increase
the amount of Subchips MegaMan can carry (four is the default).

NETWORK: The Link option. MegaMan asks to save first. Three options are
available:
Practice - A practice NetBattle with another human player that doesn't count
NetBattle - A NetBattle with another human player where the winner gains a
random chip
Trade Chip - Trade chips with another human player

On the right side of the screen are total number of chips and your record for
NetBattles (wins and losses).

BATTLE!
-------
In a battle, there is a difference from standard play:
The Custom Bar Menu opens immediately. Select the chips that you want to use
with A, cancel with B and press OK when you are happy. If there are more than
one chip with the same code, they can all be chosen (the maximum is 5 chips
per turn). Press ADD on chips to add that many more selected chips to your
selection pool next time. You will have to battle without chips for that
turn. Press START to view the battlefield and enemies. Press OK to start the
battle and use your chips. Press B on the Custom Bar Menu to start the battle
without selecting chips. Press L to try to run from the battle and R to look
at chips in more detail. The battle remains paused until you have selected
your chips. NB Five chips are randomly selected from your Folder to be chosen
from when the Custom Bar Menu opens. Presetting a chip means that it will
appear 100% of the time in the first five chips as your selection pool.

When the battle starts,	the enemies will move. Press A to use chips, press B
to use your MegaBuster. Hold B to charge your MegaBuster (if your Charge
level is 2 or higher). Release when the ball looks big to release a charged
attack. Use the +Pad to move around and dodge enemy attacks. You battle in a
6 by 3 arena, 9 panels for each side in a standard field. Different fields
have different elements, obstacles and so on. Reduce all enemies' HP to 0 to
win the battle and gain sometimes chips and money. THERE IS NO EXPERIENCE IN
THIS GAME! Battles will gain you power through Battlechips! When the Custom
Gauge is filled you can open the Custom Bar Menu again and select more chips.
Think of these like turns. There are certain things that can speed up this
process in the game. A standard filling of the Gauge takes ten seconds for
battle.

Battles end when you reduce enemies' HP to 0 OR run from the battle. You
cannot run from important battles. I suggest not running when possible,
rewards gained can be interesting and useful.

Recovery time refers to how much time it takes an enemy to recover from an
attack.

Flinching refers to when an enemy flashes white and is temporarily invulnerable
for a few seconds after getting hit. Normally, if you flinch you cannot gain
an S rank in the battle anymore.

If you jack out into the real world, MegaMan's HP returns to full. A Game
Over occurs if MegaMan is deleted by an enemy BUT if they challenge you it
is not Game Over.

Players gain a rank based on how fast they defeat enemies. This rank is based
on the speed of victory. The maximum rank is S and the minimum is 1. Higher
ranks ensure you gain Battlechips and lower ranks give money; the lower the
rank the lower the amount received. Some enemies never give chips without
certain other chips... More on that later. The ranks and ways to acquire
them are as follows:

Busting level is based on points. If you get beyond 10 you will receive an
S rank.

Viruses
-------
7 Points - 5 secs or less
6 points - 5.01-12 secs
5 points - 12.01-36 secs
4 points - over 36 secs

Navis
-----
10 points - 30 secs or less
8 points - 30.01-40 secs
6 points - 40.01-50 secs
4 points - over 50 secs

Damage taken
------------
1 point - no hits taken
0 points - 1 hit taken
-1 point - 2 hits taken
-2 points - 3 hits taken
-3 points - 4 or more hits taken

*This can be ignored if MegaMan is using: Guts Style or HubStyle because they
do not flinch

Movement
--------
1 point - 0-2 panels moved
0 points - 3+ panels moved

Multiple Deletion
-----------------
4 points - 3 viruses at once deleted
2 points - 2 viruses at once deleted

^ There you go, a rather elaborate version of the Tutorial the game gives.

                         III. WALKTHROUGH = (WKTRU) =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
*The walkthrough is divided into several scenarios, representing a time
period of roughly one day per scenario.*

As with all MegaMan Battle Network games, there is only one save file. Press
START and select the NEW GAME option to begin.


i. Vacation! = (VACTN) =
   =========
Cue eery music. You can only read text, the faces of the people are blacked
out, as well as the screen. A person is reporting that he/she/they are onto
the final stage of the project. Another person, the superior is angry at the
delay. The superior shall punish the reporter. The reporter makes a comment on
how "they" will "rule the world, just like the WWW!" The superior is angry
about this comment as well. He orders the continuation of the project. The
screen blacks out. *The WWW were the netmafia responsible for the crisis in
MegaMan Battle Network, the original.

Back to ACDC School in DenCity on the last day of school. Lan is actually on
time for once! But he had to run because he woke up late again. A few
comments pass between them about upcoming reports and vacation. Lan seems
confident about his report. The player gains control over Lan.

Talk to Mayl and she tells you to head over to Dex. But first, there are a few
people to talk to. If you go to the girl closest to Mayl, she'll talk a while
and Lan gets an e-mail regarding viruses. Talk to the others nearby, including
the boy near the bookshelf. You'll learn more about the game. Press A next to
the table where a girl is sitting and you'll get a PanelGrab P. The guy who
is staring at the cages lets you keep the chip if you talk to him. Go to
the orange-haired girl, Yai. She says a lot of crap that seems to mean nothing
about fans. It means nothing now, but it is important to note she has fans.
Go to the fat kid with hair sticking out of his head. This fish-head is Dex.
He says something about surfing the Net later. As soon as you have talked
to him the teacher arrives. She comments about vacation and hands out the
reports. Lan and Dex are in anguish as they receive them. This little cutscene
ends and you can talk to anyone you missed before Ms. Mari arrived. Ms. Mari
has nothing to say, except Lan got an A+ in virus busting and presumably
failed his other subjects. Talk to Dex. He talks about the Square on the
Net and how they are looking for 'city Netbattlers'. Dex, Mayl and Yai will
all be meeting on the Net at the Square. MegaMan elaborates a little for
the player's benefit. After that, head to the exit of the school, into ACDC
Town.

Head around ACDC Town and look around. Lan's house is the blue one, Mayl's
is the pink one, Yai's is the biggest house in town with the black roof and
Dex's is the house with a bus stop sign in front of it next to the station. It
has a red roof. The people have a little to say about virus battling and
general gameplay and the houses are all locked. In addition, you can't
jack in anywhere so head to Lan's house. Talk to Lan's Mom and head into the
next room, which is Lan's own room. Lan's Mom calls him and sees his report.
She isn't pleased and forces him to do his homework before anything else.
Go up to the computer and jack in.

Lan uploads the homework program and then the game tutorial begins! Follow the
commands given, because you can't do anything else. Defeat the Mettaur viruses
in the three battles. Afterwards, Dex sends an e-mail to Lan to hurry up.
Step into the portal in front of you to head to Den Area 1, the first area
of the Net. The programs have a few more gameplay tips, if you bothered to
talk to them. The portal right behind you when you entered is to get out of
the Cyber World all together. The little area you started in was Lan's PC.
Go along the blue path. At the first bigger area with a program moving back
and forth take a right because it is the only way to go. Continue along the
path, you'll encounter a few Mettaurs and Canodumbs along the way; they should
pose little problems. At the very next bigger area, go past the SecurityCube
and grab the BMD just ahead at the dead end for a PanelOut1 *. Proceed down
the path and at the next big sign you can read that left leads to a Netdealer
and right leads to the next area. I suggest going left first and through the
warp portal. Talk to the green navi there, who you should recognise from now
on as the Den Area 1 Netdealer.

Den Area 1 Netdealer
HPMemory 	1000
HPMemory	2000
Shotgun B	200
LilBomb J	500
Recov10 * (3)	500
Spreader Q	1000

Most of the items seem a little obscure in terms of code, the main items to
get are the HPMemories and the Recov10 *. Both add support and defence that is
very helpful for battles. I recommend going through the warp and staying in
the little area near the sign, busting viruses for money. It's a little
time-consuming, but it makes your life easier later on. This is also a nice
chance to improve your folder a little. Make most of the codes similar or
the same to speed it up. So there are two reasons to bust viruses for a while.
After purchasing from the Netdealer, my status was as below:

MegaMan HP 140
Folder: 30
5 Cannon A (Bust CanoDumbs)
5 ShockWave R (Bust Mettaurs)
3 Recov10 * (Den Area1 Netdealer)
2 Recov10 L (default)
4 Sword S (default)
1 AreaGrab S (default)
2 Atk+10 * (default)
3 V-Gun L (default)
2 MiniBomb B (default)
1 WideSwrd L (default)
1 PanelOut1 * (BMD Den Area1)
1 PanelGrab P (ACDC Elementary desk)

If you know what you are doing, this entire process can take as little as ten
minutes (150Z is the maximum output per battle). A good tip is to target
Mettaurs especially when they are about to attack (either raising their
pick or about to smash it on the ground). This almost always ensures a level
9 rank and 150Z. Anyway, exit the warp and head to the sign. Now, head right.
Pass Mayl's SecurityCube and enter the next area.

Go through Den Area 2 and follow the rather linear path. Remember to take
GMDs (floating green cubes) as you see them. Keep going until you see a fork.
Head directly up to the dead end for another BMD containing CrossGun S. Go
to the fork and head off to the right. At the next big area, there is a green
navi standing that tells you heading down leads to the Square. Going up isn't
important now; it leads to Den Area 3. Head down instead. Behind the sign,
press A on the floating materials to get your first BugFrag. The sign reveals
that in the fork, on the left the path blocked by a SecurityCube is Dex's
PC and to the right is the Square, so head there. Go through the warp.

A little cutscene occurs where Lan sees GutsMan and Roll. After they disappear,
you'll see you are in the Square Entrance. To the far left is an inactive
warp point; the navi there says you require a GateKey. To the far left, a navi
blocks a warp point to KotoSquare, so that way is also inaccessible. The navis
hanging around say a few points of advice. The only option is to head up into
the warp there and enter The Square.

Talk to everyone around the main area, including Roll and the Netdealer, as
well as the nearby Subchipdealer (the shopping area is to the far right of
The Square). There are some more items to purchase from the Netdealer:

The Square Netdealer (ha ha... get it? Never mind...)
HPMemory	2000
HPMemory	4000
HPMemory	8000
CrossGun J	600
WideSwrd L	800
Recov30 H	1000
Barrier B	1200

The Square Subchipdealer
MiniEnrg	50
SneakRun	200
Unlocker	4000

Nothing is very good here except the HPMemories, but you're probably a little
short of cash. Head to the north of The Square where a barrier is blocking
the way. Talk to the pink navi and finally to the green navi. You need to
take the test to gain a Z License and become a "City Netbattler"! After a
little talking, GutsMan and Roll will disappear in search of the two datas
HeroData and HopeData. You need to find them too, so let's head off.

Backtrack all the way through the portals to Den Area 2 - the area just before
entering the Square Entrance. Now, head up and to Den Area 3.

This is your first time here, there is a big area empty but filled with
slightly stronger viruses than you are used to. It might be an idea to train
for chips here as well as money for those HPMemories. Keep heading north,
you'll see a purple navi walking between two SecurityCubes. There's also a
sign in the middle. Just before this, on the far left corner there is a red
disk with floating material coming out of it. Press A on it to receive
HeroData!

I recommend walking the long way all the way to Den Area1 right next to
Lan's PC. You could jack out and in for faster access, but this way you can
fight more viruses and gain more money and chips. You'll see GutsMan in
Den Area 2 struggling to find the data, that dumb guy will never find them!
To heal quickly, a green program at the start of Den Area 2 will heal you
for free. Pretty useful, huh? Remember it for future reference. In Den Area1
where the Netdealer is Roll is also searching for the data. Surprisingly,
she cannot find the data because she is "lost". Anyway, in Den Area 1 from
Lan's PC head up and keep going up. At the first fork, go up to the
dead end and there is a green disk waiting for MegaMan... You just got
HopeData!

I highly recommend that you now train for the HPMemories before heading back
to The Square from Den Area 2 and then the Square Entrance. Look for the
slightly rare Bunny and Flappy viruses for those chips (more common in
Den Area 3). The money will come quickly if you repeat the process you did
for getting the money in Den Area 1. In Den Area 3, just under the upper
level (you cannot reach) MegaMan will hit something you cannot see. Pick
it up for another BugFrag. Two other worthwhile things to note: First,
the maximum output in some regions is 200Z. Second, see if you can bust
Canodumbs for Cannons A, B, C and D. Now, in a battle, use Cannons A, B and C
in order to activate your first Program Advance - Z-Canon1! After doing
all of the above preferably, head back to the Square.

Talk to the green navi and he'll give you your ZLicense! He'll also give
you the Chip Selection System! You can now preset a chip for every battle!
You also receive an e-mail from Mayl. She'll give you her PC code.

There's one last thing you can do before jacking out: Go to the room with
a green outline around the door that was blocked off before. It is open!
This is the Board Room and you can go to the boards to gain valuable
information about various aspects of the game. After viewing everything,
jack out.

MegaMan HP 200

^ The above normally takes much longer than what is said... Getting the 3
Square HPMemories takes up to and in excess of an hour of busting. But
especially for a beginner, it's good practice for later on! Oh, and if you
get bored, I don't blame you ;P

ii. Yai's Bathing Problems = (YAIBP)
    ======================
^ Sounds wrong, doesn't it? Well - there could be worse. Yai's gas problems?
I'll pass.

Right after you jack out, you get a phone call from Glide, Yai's Navi! Yai
is in trouble because she never came out of her bath. Apparently, the gas
water heater is malfunctioning. Glide says he will check on the program.
Right after he leaves, Lan gets another call; this time from Mayl. She
discusses that she and Dex are worried and Lan agrees to meet up with them
at Yai's.

That's the next destination, but a few things need to be done first (well,
only for your benefit). Get out of Lan's house. Go straight to the doghouse
next to his house and jack in.

Go to the bottom right for a BMD containing FullEnrg. Talk to the two programs
in the middle with nothing important to say and then jack out, because there
is absolutely nothing here. You MAY want to fight the Fishy viruses for Dash,
but it isn't necessary.

Now, head to Mayl's house. There isn't anything interesting on this floor
except the electric piano - which is currently off. Go up the stairs.

There are two main objects of interest: the Servebot toy that has a broken
jack-in port and Mayl's PC that can barely be seen under her bed. Jack in
to her PC.

Work your way around the rather linear paths to the main big area. The viruses
around are only moderately tougher than what you have faced before. In the
centre of the big area, grab the BMD containing MiniEnrg. Now head up to the
warp. You're back on the Net, but this time from the other side of Mayl's
SecurityCube. Press A on it and MegaMan will use MaylCode and the
SecurityCube will disappear permanently. Jack out.

Head outside into ACDC Town. Remember Yai's house is the biggest house in
town, the one up north from Lan's, but don't head there yet whatever you do!
Instead, go to ACDC Elementary up the road from Lan's house. Go to the
blackboard and jack in. Head straight up from the warp point and get the
BMD containing Sword L. There are some programs around that have nothing
useful to say, so jack out.

Now, exit ACDC Elementary and go to Dex's house (the house with a bus stop
sign in front of it and next to the Station). Dex's house is more interesting
than the other houses you've been to before... Go to the GBA and jack in.
Go to the centre of this area and get the BMD containing a MiniBomb *. Talk
to the programs if you like and jack out.

Go to Dex's PC and jack in. Head up the very long linear path until you
reach the main big area. Get both BMDs that are next to the warp point. The
left has a GutPunch B and the right has 800Z. Jack out. Look around Dex's
house and exit.

ACDC Town hasn't changed much at all, people will be saying a lot of useless
stuff, the fat lady near Yai's house comments on smoke coming from it and there
now happens to be a Subchip Peddler just to the right of Yai's house. Look
for the scientist.

Subchip Peddler ACDC Town
MiniEnrg	50
FullEnrg	400
Unlocker	4000

Nothing exceptional except the Unlocker Subchip, but I doubt you have the funds
and we don't require an Unlocker yet. But still, it's good to know he is there.

Finally, head to Yai's house and when you approach the entrance a cutscene
will occur. Dex decides to head inside himself and says he will return in 5
minutes at most. As it so happens, 5 minutes pass and still no sign of Dex.
Lan decides to head in. You regain control of Lan. Talk to Mayl and head in
the door. The door locks behind Lan! Lan smells something strange. A gas
leak! MegaMan activates a gas sensor on his PET screen so Lan can see the
gas and avoid it. Purple clouds indicate gas. Lan gets e-mail. It's from Mayl
(bad pun...) and she gives him a chip Roll R. Place it in your folder.

Head past the gas forward into the next room. You can't actually get hurt
by the gas; it acts as an obstacle but there really is no restriction to
movement. Lan and MegaMan are greeted by a room filled with gas in the far
end of the corner. MegaMan spots Dex nearby next to a vent, filled with gas.
Dex is unconscious and MegaMan reminds Lan of the water heater program. Go
to the left side and to the white panel on the wall, which is the gas-powered
water heater. The switch to turn on the fan doesn't work, so MegaMan must
jack in. Jack in to the program.

You're in Gas Comp1. After a brief chat between MegaMan and Lan, the player
regains control over MegaMan. Head down the path and chat to the programs
for a little more information. As you continue, a cutscene will occur with
a program saying that the ventilator is somewhere beyond, but a valve is
spitting out gas. The program gets hit by it and gets blown down. Walk up
and into the path of the gas to get blown to the program, who is OK. Now,
head around the path to the other side of the gas's pathway. Get the BMD
for 200Z. Continue along the path forward to the square area and head beyond.

This time, you'll see as you continue a valve spitting gas that is blocking
your way and another gas barrage coming down from the path closer to you.
Now, time your steps right so that the valve's gas barrage misses you and you
can head directly past it to the path up. Get the BMD containing Recov10 *.

Return to the valve and get blown down. You're now blocked by another barrage
of gas from a valve, this time the one you saw the barrage of gas from the
other side. However, there is a path directly in front of you, just to the
right of your original location in this puzzle. You need to once again time
your steps right to pass the barrage of gas. If you get blown up, you'll have
to get blown down again and back. I recommend saving here just so you don't
need to keep repeating the process again and again. Now, head along the
path.

Don't go straight to the main large square area, first continue along the
path to the dead end containing a BMD with a V-Gun A. Now head to the
main large square area and MegaMan will see GutsMan, who is struggling to find
a way forward. You'll see that the path doesn't continue. But, to your right
is a valve. Press A on it to turn the cyberknob and Cybergas will flow out.
Get blown by the gas up on to the next area. There's a green program next to
a ventilator. The program tells you (if you say Yes to being Yai's friend)
that the ventilator program must be fixed. Press A on the ventilator for
MegaMan to clear the error. In the real world, Lan will make the ventilator
work. The gas disappears from around Dex. Lan can now approach Dex! He does
so and revives Dex. Dex decides to escape with GutsMan and unlock the front
door. Lan and MegaMan agree to stay and help Yai. The player regains control
of MegaMan. Head forward to the next area.

You're now in Gas Comp2. Head up and to the far right, because to the left
a barrage of gas blocks the way. You see Glide, so talk to him. Apparently,
even he cannot pass the gas ahead. The next puzzle is slightly tricky. First,
get hit by the first valve. Go down the path here on the left and pick up
the BMD containing a HPMemory!

MegaMan HP 220

Now, head down and get hit by the gas here to return to the start of the area.
Go back to the line of valves and their gas barrages. You need to carefully
manoeuvre past them all. I recommend saving, going past one, saving and
repeating the process. When you pass the few in a line, you'll reach another
barrage of gas. You'll have to veer right into the little dead end quickly.
Time your steps right after the gas cloud previously hits and grab the BMD
containing a BugFrag. Save here. Now comes the hard part. With the right
timing, head diagonally to the path to the left. Follow this path to grab
another BMD containing a MiniEnrg. Continue down the path. Press A on the
valve to turn it off and stop the flow of gas! Go back to the path that
was previously unpassable due to gas and continue past it up.

In the next area, head up and clear the error in the ventilation program. The
result will be no effect. MegaMan reminds Lan of the conversation with Yai
in the morning (remember the fans?). Lan recalls the fan and agrees to
search for one. The player regains control of Lan. Head back into the last
room. Dex is waiting by the door which is locked. But, the stairs that were
previously blocked by gas are now accessible! Head upstairs. Press A on the
shelf in the centre of the room with green doors. Get the Fan and backtrack
to the bathroom. Head near the gas that is left and a cutscene occurs. Lan
uses the fan to blow the gas away. He blows all of it away and can now see
the bathtub! Yai can be seen - she is unconscious in the bathtub. Before
Lan can help her, the gas returns! The scene returns to MegaMan. Towards
his right, the huge collection of gas before the last ventilation program
clears because of Lan. But, a navi appears before the program!

The player once again regains control of MegaMan. Head to the right where
concentrated gas blocked the way before. Turn the valve that is closed and
get blown to the next platform. Now, turn the valve you can see here off and
go past it to the BMD containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 220 MB 5

Now, keep going along the path. Far down the path, you can see another closed
valve. Open it and head all the way back to the platform you came from. Turn
the valve here back on and get blown back to the previous area. You can see
just behind you where you came from a barrage of gas flows coming from the
valve that you just opened. Get blown by it. You'll get blown to the area
where the navi is. Don't advance just yet - instead, save your game and
prepare for the first boss of the game. When you're ready, approach the
boss. MegaMan will ask him to stop what he is doing. The yellow-haired man
you would have seen first before Lan's house and when Yai was missing the man
behind Yai's house appears and says that AirMan only listens to him. Lan
suggests he has a grudge against Yai, but AirMan's operator wants to
blackmail Yai's parents for Yai's life in exchange for 200 million. Lan gets
pissed off and the battle begins with the trademark "Battle routine, set...
execute!"

>> BOSS: AIRMAN <<
HP 300
Tornado: AirMan fires three tornadoes down each row of the battlefield.
They are travelling at different speeds. Evade the faster ones by going in
the path of the slower one and then move away when the slower tornado
approaches.

Wild Tornado: AirMan shoots two tornadoes, one moving horizontally and the
other vertically. They will home in on MegaMan's present location (at the
time) and hit him. Evade it just at the last second.

Air Cannon: AirMan fires a blast of fiery wind down one row. Evade it easily
by moving to a different row (if he actually is aiming at your row).

AirMan is pathetically easy. His attacks are not only easy to evade, but
predictable and low-damaging. Hit him with strong chips such as Cannon and
Roll when you have a free shot at him. Mini Bombs aren't going to work well.
Swords are particularly effective at defeating him.

After his defeat, AirMan's operator decides to retreat. MegaMan and Lan
rejoice but quickly remember Yai. MegaMan fixes the final ventilator program.

The scene switches to Yai in bed, surrounded by Lan and the others. Yai
wakes up and finds out that Lan saved her. She thinks Lan saw her naked but
Mayl comes to his defence, saying that she carried Yai to her bed; Lan only
turned the gas off and Dex opened the front door. Yai says Lan missed out on
something good... Lan says Yai is talking nonsense. On a happy note, the
scene changes.

The yellow-haired operator of AirMan, Arashi, contacts his superior. Arashi
says that he will not fail next time. The superior says that he does not
understand the harshness of Gospel. Arashi thinks he is being overdramatic
and the superior claims that Gospel are the netmafia and soon Electopia will
find out. Arashi has had his last chance, but he seems fine. The superior
announces that in 3 seconds there will be an explosion. The scene ends with
a Station exploding (and no doubt the end of Arashi). The Gospel superior
makes an evil comment and hangs up.

The player regains control of Lan. Talk to Yai. She is asleep, but Lan
reads her memo to receive YaiCode. There are some interesting objects around
Yai's house. First, head to the ancient telephone. Jack in. Go to the bottom
left and pick up the BMD containing 1000Z. Go directly up from there (ie.
go to the top left of the area) and pick up the BMD containing a RegUP1. Talk
to the navi and the two programs that say irrelevant things and jack out of
the Telephone.

MegaMan HP 220 6MB

Go to Yai's laptop and jack in. In Yai's PC, go along the very long winding
but linear path. In the big main yellow area, head over to the right and hug
the right side until you see another path. Keep going up to the dead end and
get the BMD containing a HPMemory.

MegaMan HP 240

Go back down and keep heading down to the warp point and go through. Open
Yai's SecurityCube with YaiCode. This is Den Area1 once again, the area
where the Netdealer is located. Anyway, jack out now. Alternatively, you
may want to stay in Yai's PC for the more exotic viruses and their rare
drops (for example, Swordies for LongSword and Spookies for Invisible and
Recov30). Head out of Yai's house.

In Town, nothing much has changed except what the people say. ACDC
Elementary is now empty and the Subchip Dealer is now on the road in the
west of town (just outside Mayl's house). Head to Dex's house.

Talk to Dex. Accept his challenge to take on GutsMan.

>> BOSS: GUTSMAN <<
HP 300
GutsHammer: GutsMan uses his hammer to generate a sonic wave down one row.
Change row to dodge this slow attack.

GutsPunch: If you stay in the front column of your area, GutsMan attempts
to punch you with his massive fist. Evade it quickly.

GutsQuake: GutsMan uses his hammer to crack all the panels down one row.

SuperGutsQuake: GutsMan uses his hammer to crack every panel in your area.

GutsMan is another sad case. He's pathetically slow and horribly predictable.
He barely ever flinches either, so you can easily hit him with chips
multiple times per turn (a few Cannons etc.). If you are feeling bold,
using swords stand in the front row to lure him into a GutsPunch. It has
massive recovery time, so use it to hack him. This effectively crushes
GutsMan.

If you receive a decent rank, you'll get a GutsMan chip from the battle. Dex
will also give you DexCode. Jack into his PC and get on the Net via the
warp point. Open the SecurityCube using DexCode. This area you'll recognise
as Den Area 2, just next to a sign and the Square Entrance. Jack out. Exit
Dex's house and head home.

As soon as you enter, you'll get an e-mail. A bomb went off in Marine
Station but there were no casualties (Hmm...). Go to your room after talking
to Mom and finally press A on the bed to sleep and save. Lan goes to sleep.

iii. Planning a Holiday = (PLNHL) =
     ==================
A few days go by uneventfully. The scene picks up a few days after the start
of vacation. Lan and MegaMan are planning a camping trip to spend vacation.
After some conversation, Lan agrees to tell the others.

Exit Lan's house. There are a couple of new people around. First, in
the playground a little boy and girl are trading. Ms. Mari, your school
teacher is outside of the school and she teaches Lan about upgrades if you
speak to her. There's a boy just above the park that teaches you about
Official and City Netbattlers as well. Probably the biggest change, a man
is standing outside the Metroline and it is open! But we won't go there
just yet.

The girl outside of Mayl's house says that Mayl is doing her homework
somewhere. Go to ACDC Elementary and talk to Mayl, who is doing work
sitting at her desk. She has homework from her Netopian class, so she can't
come...

Next, go to Yai's house. There's a note on her front door saying she's gone
on a trip around the world.

Finally, head over to Dex's house and talk to Dex. He needs to stay home to
watch the house.

A cutscene takes over where Lan and MegaMan are in the park talking. The
decision to camp was a little too random. Suddenly, they get an e-mail. Any
ZLicense holders are eligible to take the test at the Official Center and
become a City Netbattler. Lan and MegaMan decide that they will talk to
everyone about camping tomorrow. Now, head over to the station.

Looks familiar? Arashi died in a similar place... Talk to the men around if
you like and go to the counter. Get a MariPass and head past the blockades to
the right. As soon as you head through, Lan gets an e-mail. Dex will camp
tomorrow on the condition that he is the leader. That's one member going...
Anyway, this is the Marine Harbor Station. This is also where Arashi died.
Talk to the men here if you like and head out the door to the right.

Welcome to Marine Harbor! There's plenty to do in this new location. There's
first a lot of new people with random things to say. If you head up, you'll
notice that to your left overlooking the ocean is a TV reporter, her
cameraman and a TV relay mobile. This reporter is from DNN News and her
name is Ribitta. She travels the world at times and can be recognised easily
from her green froggy clothing and her cameraman. Accept her challenge to
Netbattle against her Net Navi, ToadMan.

>> BOSS: TOADMAN <<
HP 300
Element: Electric/Water
Weakness: Water
Paralysing Song: ToadMan sends a semi-homing paralysing musical note towards
MegaMan. Evade at the last second to avoid it.

Toad Swipe: ToadMan moves to the square in front of him and pushes him for
a lot of damage. Evade quickly.

Tadpole Rush: The two lily pads send a tadpole down their respective rows
to confuse MegaMan. Dodge them quickly.

ToadMan is definitely a notch above other bosses you've faced so far. His
attacks are fast and he isn't easy to hit. Notice that there are two lily
pads on the far rows on the enemy side that move back and forth. ToadMan
appears on one and when you go to his row he immediately moves to the other
row. In addition, he usually hides. Not to mention with electric damage he
will be getting multiple hits by comboing a paralysing attack with a high
damage attack. What you need to do is bait him towards you by first and
foremost evading all his attacks and attacking the lily that is heading further
away from you. ToadMan will move to the lily pad near you so that when you
are ready you can hit him with swords and other high damaging attacks. The
faster you finish this battle, the better. Your ShockWaves will also help;
send it down one row that is empty and move to ToadMan's row and he will
move into the path of the attack.

Once defeated, Ribitta hands Lan RibiCode. Go into the Ribitta's Van. Move
along the winding linear path and pick up the BMD containing 1000Z. There are
some interesting aqua viruses around that you may want to fight for some chips.
Continue all the way to the warp point. Get the BMD next to it containing an
ElecSwrd E. It would have been useful against Ribitta, if you are having
problems. Go through the warp point.

You're in the top floor of Den Area 3. Open the SecurityCube with RibiCode.
Move forward and you'll see a PMD containing a PowerUP! (You need an Unlocker
subchip to open PMDS - the Subchip Peddler in ACDC Town is the most convenient
choice). I recommend using the PowerUP on MegaMan's Charge attribute. As
said in the Basics (BASIC), press START and choose MegaMan. MegaMan asks
'upgrade what'? You choose one of the attributes and press A.

MegaMan HP 240 Attack 1 Rapid 1 Charge 2

Once you're done with that, continue along the path until you reach a big
green square area that branches off into two directions. There is a program
in the corner sulking about not being able to access KotoSquare. Head to the
bottom right path first. Continue along to the warp point. Take the branch
that veers to the far right for a GMD in the dead end that is almost always
there. Go back to the warp point and head through. Recognise this area? It's
the Square Entrance, but the warp point in the top right of the area is now
able to be used and it leads to Den Area 3! Head back all the way to the
big green square where the program was in Den Area 3. Now pursue the bottom
left path and talk to the green navi here, who is in fact a Netdealer.

Den Area 3 Netdealer
HPMemory	3000
HPMemory	5000
HPMemory	8000
PowerUP		5000
Atk+10 *	600
Spreader O	800
Recov30 B	1000
AreaGrab E	2000

His best products are the HPMemories and PowerUPs, but I really doubt you will
have the money available right now. Buy what you can for now and train up.
Remember him for later. Now, continue down the path until you enter Den Area 2
from the top floor. Continue along this path and talk to the green program
blocking the way. This path leads to KotoSquare but it is still under
construction, so it's another no-go zone. Jack out.

Head up in Marine Harbour to the big building. You'll notice the woman says
that this is the Netbattlers HQ. If you head down the stairs to the right,
the doorway there cannot be accessed - at least not yet. Head through the
door to the Official Center.

There are some interesting people around, talk to them all. Head over to the
counters and to the lady that is first from the left and get your ExamPass.
Now, there are some other things to do first. If you head over to the far
top left, you'll see the Center's Host Computer. If you jack in from here,
you'll get to the Square but from the alternate warp point that wasn't active
before. You'll see what I mean when you try it for yourself. Now, head down
to the bottom left of the area and jack in to the coffee machine.

Head to the top left of the coffee machine and get the BMD containing a
RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 240 7MB

Jack out. Now, head down the stairs on the bottom right. You'll see a young
man and woman. To the left there is a Request Board, where people make
requests to City Netbattlers. If you head down and out of the door there,
you'll be outside but down the stairs which you couldn't access before the
first time in the building. Talk to the man next to the counter and enter
the door nearby.

Lan is now in the Test Room. There are some other people completing their
License Tests. Jack in at any part of the room. You'll get an e-mail from
Yai saying that she will come on the camping trip as well. There's two
members of the gang going! Anyway, you should realise you are in the Square
but on the other side of the barrier you could not access before. This
area cannot be accessed in any other way other than the Test Room. But
first, talk to the lone green navi. You'll take the BLicense test. There
are three problems.

Problem 1 - Survival Battle, no recovery permitted in between battles
Battle 1  - Mettaur, Mettaur
Battle 2  - Canodumb, Canodumb
Battle 3  - Mettaur, Mettaur, Mettaur
Battle 4  - Canodumb, Canodumb, Canodumb
Battle 5  - Bunny, Bunny, Bunny

These battles are a piece of cake. Every virus you battle you have encountered
in the past.

Problem 2 - A Navi needs help in the Den Area. MegaMan needs to find him and
help him. The barrier lifts that was blocking the way to the Square. Head
back to the Square Entrance. Now go to the top right to Den Area 3. Head up
along the path, past the sulking program and past the Netdealer, purchasing
anything you can along the way.

MegaMan HP 240 Attack 1 Rapid 1 Charge 3

Go down and in the next big green square area there is a green navi. A bad
guy stole his WalkProg. Say that you will help him. As soon as you do that,
you get an e-mail from Mayl, saying that she will camp as well because she
finished her homework! Now, jack out.

Jack back in, go to the Square Entrance and go all the way to the bottom right
back to Den Area 2. Now, head down and around towards Den Area 1. On your
way, you'll see a suspicious purple navi in the area just after the program
that heals you fully - who is no longer there. Save and talk to the navi.
He'll engage with a virus battle!

Beetank, Beetank, Beetank

These guys aren't spectacularly hard, they just have a lot of HP. Use mass
targetting attacks that are generally based such as ShockWaves to delete them
quickly. Their movement means that they are more than likely to get hit
by moving into the path of attacks. Jack out, jack back in and head to
Den Area 3 from the Square Entrance. Give the navi his WalkProg back and
MegaMan will receive NiceData. Jack out and jack back in yet again. Give the
examiner the NiceData and you're ready for the last problem.

Problem 3 - Survival battle, no recovery permitted in between battles
Battle 1  - Mettaur2, Flappy, Canodumb
Take out the Mettaur2 first, then the Canodumb. Handle the Flappy last. The
Mettaur2 can be easily beaten with a sword immediately.
Battle 2  - Mettaur2, Mettaur2, Mettaur2
Just like Mettaurs, except they shield occasionally. Pick them off one by
one and dodge as necessary.
Battle 3  - Bunny, Canodumb2, Beetank
Defeat the Bunny as fast as possible, then handle the Canodumb whil dodging
the Beetank. The Beetank should die last.
Battle 4  - Canodumb2, Canodumb2, Canodumb2
Yeesh. Three stronger than normal Canodumbs. If you can't delete one
immediately, evade like hell. Otherwise, take out one and stay in that row,
picking the others off when the opportunity arises.
Battle 5 - HardHead, HardHead, Beetank
The HardHeads are almost always immune to attacks, but you need to pick them
off first. When they attack, quickly attack them. After they die, the battle
becomes very easy. Watch out for many explosions and the HardHeads cracking
panels around you. You're in trouble if you are trapped - the cannons the
HardHeads spit out are very painful.

After completing, the battle, you will be fully healed and you will have
passed the BLicense exam. MegaMan will get the BLicense! The examiner will
also give you a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 240 8MB

You'll receive and e-mail from Chaud. He says he is too busy and he doesn't
want to camp anyway. Nice guy :/ Talk to the examiner again to find out what
the BLicense means for the player. After that, jack out. Go out of the
Test Room. Head over to the Request Board. There are some new requests that
you can take on board! Here we go...

Request: At the cafe
Info:    I'm waiting in the cafe with an ocean view. I'll explain the job
to you in person. There is some danger involved, so your navi must be
strong.
Solving: Talk to the man with an orange jumper just near the Marine Harbor
Station. He wants a navi deleted. It's in Den Area and is spreading viruses
to programs everywhere. Go to Den Area 2 (fastest way is from the Center
Host Computer) to the warp point that leads to the Square Entrance. An evil
navi is there. Talk to him. He'll get pissed and send some viruses after you.

Fishy, Fishy, MettFire

Take care of the Fishies first, because they are the real threat. The MettFire
is more of a distraction than anything, his meteors rarely hit.

After that, head back to the man. He is actually an Official, but hired a
city Netbattler to stay undercover. He'll give you a HPMemory.

MegaMan HP 260

Return to the Request Board and complete the other request there.

Request: Need help
Info:    Could you please find a lost girl, a relative of mine? I'm waiting
at the school in ACDC Town.
Solving: Go to ACDC Elementary and talk to the girl next to the blackboard.
Her cousin has wandered off somewhere and she is worried, so she wants you
to find her. She says that she may have used the Metroline to go somewhere.
Go to Marine Harbor. From Ribitta's location, head up to where a boy is
staring at her (Ribitta). Behind him is a little girl. Talk to her. She
says that Sis worries too much and that she can take care of herself. Head
back to ACDC Elementary to the girl. You'll get a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 260 9MB

That's it! No more requests for the day. You can collect more money for
the Den Area 3 Netdealer if you like, if not (be lazy like me o_O) then go
home, because there is nothing left to do for the day. Go to sleep and save.

Meanwhile, elsewhere, ProtoMan and Chaud are viewing messages in the Board
Room. ProtoMan finds a message from Gospel saying that Electopia will
witness its might. Chaud thinks it is nonsense and asks ProtoMan to erase it
with his Official authorisation. The scene ends with Chaud thinking about
Gospel.

iv. Camping at Okuden = (CPOKU) =
    =================
Next morning, Lan is being yelled at by MegaMan while he is asleep. Lan
finally wakes up and the player regains control over him. Lan receives an
e-mail from Dex to go to the bus stop in 5 minutes or they will leave
without him!

Head out into ACDC Town. There's almost no change in town, except that a kid
is down the pathway outside of ACDC Elementary (keep heading west). He
wants a DashAtk J in exchange for a Spreader * - you may have it but probably
not yet.

Head down to Dex's house and chat with Yai, Mayl and Dex. Right after that,
the bus arrives. The scene blackens out as the bus leaves and arrives at
Okuden Valley. The others will join Lan for a while. Lan starts heading up
and sees Chaud. After some talk about how Chaud has this whole attitude
problem thing, Chaud joins as well. The player regains control over Lan. Head
into the entrance.

If you attempt to press onward down the path, bees block the way. We need to
find some materials...

If you talk to the fat lady and the middle-aged man down near the river you'll
find that there seems to be newspaper littered in a tree. Press A on the tree
to the right of the man in glasses, who seems like a Greenie. You'll see a
newspaper in the branches. Take it to receive Paper.

But we can't do anything with paper... yet. If you talk to the camper woman
with a little girl running around her, she will say that bees are scared of
fire. Now, head down past the fat lady and the man who told you about the
newspaper. Keep going parallel to where the bees are blocking the path. Press A
on the blue screen (basically, the corner) and Lan will see a lighter stuck
between two rocks. Pick it up to get a Lighter.

Now, head back and alongside the river you'll see rocks that spread across it
at certain parts of the river. Go along the rocky path that is closest to the
right, or from the entrance. Now, at the end, press A where you cannot go
any further. Lan will see a bit of stick on the rocks. Pick it up to get
a Stick. Now we are ready to make our fire! Head over to the bees and press A.
Select the option to use the lighter + stick + paper. The bees will flee.
The pathway is now open, so move to the next area.

If you continue, the pathway is blocked by a bear!!! Lan and co. run away.
There is one hint as to what to do next: the little boy near the river says
that he lost his binocs somewhere. Go behind the waterfall and press A when
Lan cannot move. He will see something shiny, so pick it up to get Binocs.
Move to the guardian statue near the bridge and jack in.

Go to the top left of the Guardian and get the BMD containing a HPMemory.

MegaMan HP 280

Jack out. Now, head towards the bear. Mayl suggests to look at the bear with
the Binocs. It actually is a fake and is programmed to attack! Someone needs
to fix it up and Chaud arrogantly declines (Hmph to you too!). Jack in to the
bear.

This area is very convenient to get a DashAtk J because the Fishies will not
be accompanied by many foes. Head down to the bottom right corner first and
get the BMD containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 280 10MB

Now, head to the middle and speak to the program there. The bear has a virus.
It apparently was a hit until it starting hurting people. Even in Okuden,
people continue to get hurt. Right after this, viruses interrupt the
conversation!

Spikey, Spikey, Spikey

They aren't hard because it is easy to tell when they are going to attack.
Their HeatShots hurt, so be careful to dodge them.

After the viruses are gone, the bear stops functioning. Lan and co. decide to
place it onto the side of the road. The path is now open, so continue on.

You've finally made it to the campground! After a short cutscene where Dex
dismisses everyone for the BBQ, the player gains control over Lan.

First, head down the rocky path to the other end of the river. Continue left
and talk to the scientist there. You aren't authorised to head to the Dam
itself, but he'll give you a Bubbler G.

The other important thing to note is that Ribitta and her van are here, so you
can if you like go to Den Area 3 for some more purchases.

After that, head to where Dex is running around. He's looking for a kindling
because the gas stove is too weak. He asks Lan to find some wood for him.
Lazy ass ;P Go down past the rocky path to the other side of the river and
talk to the old man near the trees. The old man cuts up FireWood for Dex. Give
it back to Dex. The old man is on the far right, closer to where you came
from when entering the campground.

Now, talk to Mayl who is near the BBQ. She forgot her cutting knife to cut
the vegetables! Go just to the right and talk to the camper girl looking at
the river. She lets you use her knife, so Lan gets the Knife. Head back to
Mayl and give her the knife. Man... everyone is so lazy around here.

Now, go to Yai who is just on the other side of the BBQ. Talk to her. She wants
fish! Head over to the rocky path that is on the far left and talk to the
man with a bandana who is fishing. He'll help you catch a Fish with your
bare hands! Go back to Yai and give her the fish.

After those three have obtained what they wanted, a cutscene begins where
the BBQ is ready. Chaud is nowhere to be found. The four decide to eat
without him. Dex and Lan pig out, as usual. Just as they are enjoying their
food, the ground shakes. MegaMan thinks the explosion came from Okuden Dam -
which means that if the dam breaks the water will wash them all away! When
they are about to flee, Dex reminds them that Chaud is still missing. Lan
decides to chase up Chaud while the others get to safety. After that, the
player regains control of Lan.

You'll notice pretty much everyone has deserted the Camp. Head to the Dam
area, where you couldn't go to before. A scientist here says the dam will
explode. Keep going, the scientist next to the sign is a Subchip Peddler.

Okuden Dam Subchip Peddler
MiniEnrg	50
SneakRun	200
Unlocker	4000

Probably pointless at the moment. Head past him. The man in the vest says that
a boy went into the dam's control center and didn't come out... Keep moving
along the bridge. Talk to the scientist before the door to the control center.
Press A on the door. Only authorised personnel can continue. Just when Lan
is starting to get ticked off, Chaud phones. Chaud tells Lan he is in the
dam and he tells him about the message on the boards last night. Chaud came
as recon and found a time bomb set to explode in the dam. Lan wants to come
in but Chaud says that he has to do something else: there are several
remote detonator receptors in the bombs. Lan must find them and delete the
explosion programs. With that, Chaud says that he will take care of things
inside. The player regains control over Lan.

Head back to the campground main area. As soon as you leave the Dam, Lan
gets an e-mail from Chaud explaining that there are four bombs. Go to the
rocky path and you'll see a flashing device on the ground. It's a PET! Jack
into it.

After you enter, MegaMan confirms that this is a detonator. After a brief
conversation, Chaud sends yet another e-mail. You need to look for a round
monitor inside the detonator. Head up until you see a fork. If you head up,
an explosion will block the way. Head left. At the next fork, head up and
get the BMD containing 500Z. You can't head any further down that path,
because an explosion blocks the way. Backtrack to the previous fork and
head left. Work your way around the corner, defeating viruses as necessary.
Head up and at the next fork, going up will lead to a dead end. Head right
instead. At the next fork, continue down the same path. If you try to
get the BMD, an explosion blocks your way. Continue down the path. At the end,
head up and around. At the next fork, head down to retrieve the BMD
containing a Cannon C. Now head to your left. Move along the green
pathway to the round monitor. Press A to make MegaMan stop the detonation
program. Jack out.

Go past the BBQ to the tent nearby and head to the mat with a backpack and
canteen on it. The canteen is actually another detonator! Jack into it. Move
along the green pathway. A program here mentions dud bombs in battles that
you will encounter; if a Fire attack hits it that area (whether it is
yours or the enemies') will explode. At this first fork, you'll need to
head up because to your right the path will be blocked by an explosion. At
the next fork, grab the BMD for 600Z. If you keep heading this way, you'll
be blocked off yet again so go back to the fork and go this time to the
right. At the next three-pronged fork, heading right will lead to a dead end
and the same if you head up. Instead, go down and around to reach the other
side. Head across the green pathway here. Yet another three-pronged fork
ahead! Both left and right are blocked off, so head up. At the next fork,
up and left are blocked, so head right. At the next fork, head up and get
the BMD containing a HPMemory!

MegaMan HP 300

The left path will be blocked off, so head up and around. At the next fork,
the left path will once again be blocked, so head down. At the next fork,
the only way to go is left (at last!) to be greeted with yet another fork.
Here, going up will be blocked. Go to the left and get the BMD containing
a WideSword L. Pursue this path only to be blocked. Backtrack to the last
fork and head down. Keep heading down, because going left only results in...
Another dead end! Aghhh! Finally, you're down to the bottom, so head left.
Turn the corner and head up. Keep heading up past all the freaking dead
ends that were blown up. You'll finally reach that all-familiar green
pathway. It leads to... Yes! A round monitor. Stop the detonation program
and jack out.

This time, leave the campground. You're done here. In the waterfall region,
head behind the waterfall where the Binocs were. There's a PET there...
Jack in.

Head along the winding green pathway. At this first fork, your only option
is to go up because left leads to ANOTHER dead end. The next fork, head
left because up leads to a dead end. At this big fork, heading up results
in a dead end. Heading down, the same result. Head straight on - stay on
the same path you came. With the option going up or down, head down because
up goes to a dead end. Cross the green pathway here. Going straight leads
to a fork where both ways are dead ends, so head up. At the next fork, go
to your left and down to retrieve the BMD that was blocked off before
containing a PanelGrab L. Going up would have led to another dead end. Now,
you need to head left because up leads to a goddamn dead end. At the next
fork, left AND down lead to dead ends, so head right. Go around the
corner past the dead ends. At another fork, going right leads to a dead
end, so go forward. Go around another corner. At another fork, collect
the BMD straight ahead for 1500Z. It leads to a dead end, so backtrack to
the previous fork and head right. Here at the next fork, the only way
is to head up. You'll be greeted by another fork. Heading straight leads
to a dead end, so head left. Head around and past the green pathway. Get the
BMD dead ahead for a RegUP2!

MegaMan HP 300 12MB

The pathway is blocked, so head left. Victory is in sight! The monitor can
be seen - but not reached. At the next fork, up leads to a dead end so
head right. At the next fork, follow the only way up and as far as you can
go, then head left. Go along the blasted green pathway and stop the
detonation program.

Chaud rings Lan and drops a hint that a person is carrying the last bomb
himself! Jack out. Head back to the portion of Okuden just after the
entrance. You can see that Greenie guy there. Talk to him and select
Ask Again. Get Suspicious (select the option) and he reveals that he is
in fact, Dave the bomber! After a short talk about how humans have ruined
human nature, he says that no one can stop QuickMan and him. He even tells
Lan that he can jack into his PET if he wants and nothing will change. Lan
does so.

Ah... Finally. The damn last one! Head along the green pathway. You have to
head down, because the other passages will be blocked. Head down and around
the corner. Head down the green pathway, the other directions are blocked.
Pick up the BMD with a Recov50 N in it. The pathway will automatically
explode. You need to head left, because every other way is blocked. Head
around the corner and at the next branch keep heading straight, the
way is blocked. Head around the next corner. Here at the next fork, go up
because right leads to... another dead end. At the next fork, the only way
is to go right. At the next fork, head down because up leads to yet another
dead end. Go along the green pathway. Head straight, because up leads to
another explosion. At the next fork, head up. Going straight at the next
fork heads to a dead end. If you go right, you can go in a circle but head
up from the right to receive a BMD containing a PowerUP.

MegaMan HP 300 Attack 1 Rapid 1 Charge 4

The passage is blocked, so go to your far left. Head all the way around
and take the green passage to your left, because taking a shortcut leads
to - yes, another dead end. At the next fork, the only way left is to go right
past another green passage. At the next fork, straight leads to another
dead end so go right and get the BMD on the green passage containing a
BugFrag. Head across the path and here at the next fork head straight, because
up leads to another dead end. At the next fork, going up or straight leads
to two more dead ends so head down across yet another green path. Here,
the only way is to head right and across another green passage. Keep heading
up and you'll reach a fork that doesn't matter because it is a safe
circle. Head inwards towards the two inner forks. Grab the BMD to the upper
left for an Atk+10 *. Head across another safe fork and across the next
green passageway. You can see a huge green path to the right - that's the
end! We're close... Navigate past another safe fork and get the BMD
containing 3000Z. Head to the far left and save. Finally, take the long
green winding path to the boss...

Another meagre confrontation scene between MegaMan and this time - QuickMan.
QuickMan is about to leave when Dave decides to teach these punks a lesson.
The battle begins.

>> BOSS: QUICKMAN <<
HP 400
Boomerang: QuickMan sends a boomerang down a single row. Dodge quickly.

Wild Boomerang: QuickMan sends a boomerang that twirls across several rows.
Dodge by anticipating the direction he will aim in.

QuickMan is not difficult for a player who knows what he is doing. The
problem with QuickMan is if you target him at any time, he will shield. The
only time he is vulnerable is during his attacks and rapid movement. You
need to hit him either during his movement or during the period where he
recovers before he composes himself. QuickMan attacks quickly and sometimes
attacks more than once, so watch for that. Swords are good to hit him with
but ShockWaves are particularly useful for hitting him when he is moving.
Although somewhat random, his movement will assuredly hit the centre row,
so send a wave down that way and he's going to be almost certainly hit.

MegaMan finds out QuickMan should not have been deleted - he IS the final
detonation program! If he is deleted, the dam will explode! Just when he
is about to explode... ProtoMan steps in and deletes QuickMan. Dave gets
arrested by Chaud and the scene blackens out.

Lan is getting interviewed by Ribitta as the 'hero' of the crisis. Lan remains
humble, but we deserve SOME credit for going through all those torturous
goddamn puzzles...

The scene switches after the interview to a black screen and the standard
Gospel theme plays. The superior considers the defeat of Arashi and Dave,
but then remembers they are bottom ranks. He calls out to Dark, a mercenary
it seems. The superior is happy he is working with a REAL professional...

v. Yumland = (YUMLD) =
   =======
The scene goes back to Lan in ACDC Park. He's thinking about his research
project and what he has to do. MegaMan and Lan discuss it before Lan finds
a pink Balloon. There's a letter attached to it from Yumland asking to be
penpals with someone. Lan decides to do it on Yumland, the place famous for
good food. With that, the duo decide to go to Yumland from the Net and maybe
eventually visit there for real. Now, the player regains control of Lan.

First, head to that boy near ACDC Elementary with the fat head that wants a
DashAtk J and trade it to him for a Spreader *. Woopdedoo, waste of time.

Next, go to Dex's house and take on GutsMan V2. He has 500 HP and is equipped
with a new Rocket GutsPunch. It does a massive 100 damage per hit (!!!) AND
he also uses some AreaGrabs to try and trap you in one location and hammer
you. Finish him off quick, or you'll regret it. Beat him with a decent rank
to get the GutsMan V2 G chip.

Head back outside and into the park. Jack into the toy robot lying on the
ground. Head left and get the BMD containing 3000Z (more money!) and go
to the far right and get the BMD there containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 300 13MB

Talk to the programs and jack out. Now, head to Marine Harbor to do a few
errands there. Go to Den Area 3 and clear out the Netdealer there for all
your PowerUP and HPMemories that are still missing using the van.

MegaMan HP 340 (I was able to purchase all except the last HPMemory...)

Jack out. Head into the Official Center from the main door. You'll get an
e-mail from an unknown person (one guess who...) about Chip Traders. Inside
here, you'll see a masked man in a lab coat. He is TEH Mr. Famous... (cough)
Talk to him and challenge him to a Netbattle.

>> BOSS: GATEMAN <<
HP 600
Gate Cannon: GateMan shoots a high-damaging blast of gravity down a single
row. Dodge by moving rows.

RemoGate: GateMan summons a gate that blocks his row and is continuously
homing on MegaMan's location (effectively blocking GateMan from most attacks).

Gate Claw: The gate GateMan summons targets you and THEN charges at MegaMan,
sending a claw to deal massive damage. One row only.

Marching Warriors: GateMan sends three marching mini warriors to attack you.
They move as you move, so there are two ways to defend; either, hit GateMan
when he is about to use this attack, so he stops using them OR quickly
dodge around the warriors by tricking them into going far to one side.

GateMan isn't too tough to begin with. Most of his attacks have HUGE
recovery time. It only gets difficult when he summons the RemoGate and you
have to worry about two or more things at once. There are two main ways to
hit GateMan; with WideSwords or with fast ranged attacks. Cannons are very
ineffective against him. In order to render his RemoGate useless, AreaGrab
him and stand in the same row as the gate, blocking it from hurting you.
GateMan's attacks are powerful, so delete him quickly. Mr. Famous will reward
Lan with a HPMemory.

MegaMan HP 360

Over to the far right of the Center, you'll see a scientist who happens to
be yet another Subchip Peddler!

Official Center Subchip Peddler
FullEnrg	400
SneakRun	200
LocEnemy	10000

Yeesh, nothing too good. There's also a new red machine in between the two
counters in the room. This is a Chip Trader, you can trade chips for
a random chip, whether it be new, old, rare or common. Use it wisely, because
if you trade a good chip you cannot get that chip back again since the game
saves EVERY TIME you use the Chip Trader. Try it a few times. I didn't bother
using it. In case you are wondering, my status is as follows (to refresh
memories):

I suggest it maybe a good idea to think about getting some better chips,
trying to find some program advances and getting all powerups possible. Next,
head back to ACDC Town.

From here, go to Dex's PC and jack in. Go onto the Net and take the northern
path that leads away from the Square Entrance. Head up and keep heading up
to Den Area 3.

Keep heading up and talk to green navi if you like. Continue to the
SecurityCubes and the sign. Examine the left one. Only ALicense holders can
go past the SecurityCube into Yumland and Lan still seems determined, so
off we go to get that ALicense. Jack out and head to Marine Harbor.

Go to the License Office. Speak to the Official at the counter. He says Lan
still needs more experience before taking the ALicense exam and he places
three special requests on the Request Board for Lan to handle. Go to
the Request Board.

Request: Mission1
Info: I really need help. I'd rather discuss it in person than on this board.
I need help from a good virus buster. I'm waiting in front of ACDC Town
St.
Solving: Go to ACDC Town. Talk to the scientist right next to the entrance to
the Station from Town. He was testing some experimental Navis and they ran
away. There are 3 Navis located in the ACDC Town network. They're not in
the main Net yet. He wants you to delete them but he warns you that they will
send viruses.

First off, head to Dex's house and jack into the GBA. Head to the top left
corner and talk to the evil Navi there. Enter battle...

Handy, Handy, Handy

It's not difficult, but a little hard if you don't want to get hit. Take one
down reasonably quickly with a sword and bide your time hitting their bombs.
Mass-targetting attacks like GutsManV2 will hurt them badly. Now, after that
jack out.

Go to the park and jack into the toy robot lying on the ground. Once again,
go to the top left corner and confront the evil Navi here. More viruses!

Spikey2, Spikey2, Spikey2

Treat them as Spikies with a little extra HP. Lure them to one row and hit
them with ShockWaves. Swords are very useful too. After this, jack out.

Go to ACDC Elementary and jack into the BlackBoard. Go to the top left
corner and confront the evil Navi here.

Flamey2, Flamey3

Flamies are a pain, but the best way is to hit them with chips that don't
involve entering the same row as them. This includes WideSwrds and GutsMan.
Oh, don't forget Roll either. The Flamey3 may move to your row, so watch
out. Jack out.

Head back to the scientist. He'll say that he is an examiner and he saw your
amazing (yeah...right) busting techniques. He'll reward you with a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 360 14MB

Head back to the Request Board and take up the next request.

Request: Mission2
Info:   I have a very simple request. First, come to KotoSquare! Meet up with
a kinda mean-looking Navi.
Solving: Go to Ribitta's van. Jack in and head to Den Area 3. Grab anything
you missed from the Den Area 3 Netdealer and head along that path towards
the Koto Area. The pathway is no longer blocked, so head on through.

You're now in Koto Area for the first time! It looks a little strange. There's
a sign up ahead that says to go left. So head left. Head around the corner,
collect the GMD in the dead end as you pass. Keep heading around on the main
purple path. Keep going, don't wander into corners just yet. Head up onto
the elevated level and continue along the moving path. Along this lower
level, follow it down to the warp point. Before entering, go past the
purple navi here and take the BMD in that lone dead end for a LongSwrd L.
VERY USEFUL indeed... Head back into the warp point. You may want to train
up against some of the viruses around for some interesting chips.

You're now in KotoSquare Entrance. Head along the blue path. If you head
down, a moving path blocks the way to somewhere. Head up to the top right
of the area and enter the warp point here.

Welcome to KotoSquare. There are many people with useless things to say.
First off, you'll notice two strange things; a green outlined door and down
the bottom of the area a barrier blocking another area. Anyway, before
doing anything else go in the green outlined door.

This is the KotoSquare shop area. There are three dealers around. The pink
navi to the side is the most interesting of all, because they happen to be
a BugFrag trader.

BugFrag trader KotoSquare
CrossGun * 	1
Spreader M 	1
Recov80 *	2
AirShoes A	4
Atk+30 *	8
ZeusHamr	16

Very rare chips indeed. But don't buy anything here yet! We're going to
employ a very useful glitch later on...

The green navi at the counter is a Netdealer.

KotoSquare Netdealer
HPMemory	4000
PowerUP		10000
PanelGrab *	1000
Fire+40 *	3000
FireBlade R	3800

More rare chips! The HPMemories and PowerUP are #1 on your list, but you're
probably strapped for cash.

The purple navi at the counter is a Subchipdealer...
MiniEnrg	50
SneakRun	200
Unlocker	4000

Standard set of subchips. Get out of this little area.

Finally, go down and in one of the little dead ends, there is an evil-looking
navi. He wants you to jack into the Coffee Machine in the Center. There's
a navi in there who stole his program that is very valuable, so he wants
you to retrieve it. Jack out.

Go into the Center and jack into the coffee machine to your left as you
enter the main entrance. Head to the top of the area; just head straight
from where you entered and you'll see an evil Navi. He'll give OddProg and
then send some viruses after you.

Spooky2, Spooky2, Spooky2

Slightly difficult, just dodge as necessary. In the mean time, hit them with
general mass-targetting attacks like GutsMan. Roll does well as well. Time
your WideSwrd strikes to hit them and they will die too. Beware: take them
out in a single hit or they will recover again! After they're defeated, jack
out and go to Ribitta's van. Make the journey all the way back to KotoSquare
again. Talk to the evil-looking Navi for the final time. She is actually
an examiner and the program was actually for you! You'll receieve a nice
gift, Recov30 *.

OK, now head back to the Request Board to take the final request.

Request: Mission3
Info:    Help find a lost program! Come to the Okuden Valley campgrounds
for details. I'm standing in the middle of the river.
Solving: Go to Okuden and make the distance to the Camp area. From here,
hug the river until you see a man with a bandana standing on a rocky
path. Talk to him. His son's program is lost on the Net. It's in Den
Area. Now, leave Okuden and head to ACDC Town.

Go to Dex's house and jack into his PC. From here, make your way to Den
Area 3. You'll notice a program wandering around. Talk to it. He's the
program we've been looking for. Jack out and head back to the Camp area. The
man is yet another examiner. He'll give you a HPMemory.

Megaman HP 400

Head back to the License Office. Talk to the Official at the counter. He'll
say that you are now qualified, so the Test Room is open to you. Head inside
and jack in.

Talk to the examiner. You will now be registered to take exams whenever you
want and the barrier to the Square opens up. Talk again. There are three
problems.

Problem 1 - Survival battle, no recovery permitted between battles
Battle 1  - Swordy, HardHead
Take out the Swordy quickly and the HardHead shouldn't be a problem.
Battle 2  - Spooky, Spooky2, Spooky2
Remember to take them out in a single blow. Swords work best.
Battle 3  - Handy, Handy, Handy
Focus on deleting them one at a time. Don't feel pressured by the bombs, heal
as necessary.
Battle 4  - Fishy, Fishy, Beetank
The Fishies prove as your main threat. Delete them ASAP with swords.
Battle 5  - Flappy, Flappy, Flappy
Really easy. They're slow and easy to hit with almost anything.

Problem 2 - Two bad Navis are on the Net. We have to delete them! First off,
go to the Board Room and look at the new messages. Next, head to the Square
Entrance and back to Den Area 2. Head in the direction of Den Area 1 and
you'll see an evil Navi. Talk to him; he's the youngest of the Thug
Brothers. He'll send some viruses after you.

Swordy, Swordy2, Swordy3

Yeesh... These guys will try to trap you and swipe you to oblivion. Take
them out as fast as possible! LongSwords are useful. Same with GutsMan
and Roll. Once they're dead, you'll get BadDataA.

Now, go to the Square Entrance and go from there to the top level of Den Area
3. Proceed from here to Koto Area and make your way towards the KotoSquare
Entrance. On the way, you'll see the older of the Thug Brothers. Talk to
him. He's actually weaker than his brother!

Mettaur2, Mettaur2, MettFire

Delete the Mettaurs quickly and then you'll be able to easily kill the
MettFire.
Easy. You'll get BadDataB for your trouble. Jack out and back in. Talk to
the examiner, who'll give you the last problem.

Problem 3 - Survival battle, no recovery permitted in between battles
Battle 1  - Sparky
An interesting virus who moves in between rows. ShockWaves work well, as
does Roll, GutsMan and well-timed strikes with swords.
Battle 2  - Spikey2, Spikey, WindBox
The WindBox causes some issues. Mass-target the enemies, the Spikies are
your main priority, because the rock will cause their heat cross to spread
and hit you.
Battle 3  - Shrimpy, Shrimpy
Evade and delete. No obstacles to worry about, so take care of them quickly.
Battle 4  - TuffBunny, TuffBunny, TuffBunny
Think faster, stronger bunnies. A pain, to say the least. Mass target them,
or take care of each one ASAP.
Battle 5  - Sparky, Swordy, MettFire
The MettFire is a distraction, the Sparky is the major threat. Defeat him
quickly and the other two shall follow suit soon after.

W00T! Once you're done, you'll be rewarded with your ALicense. You're ready
to head into Yumland! You'll also get a handy RegUP2.

MegaMan HP 400 16MB

counter for a Recov50 *. Nice!

Head all the way back to ACDC Town now, because there's absolutely nothing to
do anywhere else (no one is ready to challenge you). Go to Dex's house and
jack in. Make your way to Den Area 3, the lower floor. Go to the left
SecurityCube next to the sign. You have your ALicense, so the Cube will open!
Head past it and the Official Navi into Yumland.

This is Yumland 1. On first observation, it looks like some kind of grassy
place. Head up and at the fork, head right. You'll see three nooks and at
one of them there is a GMD and at another is a PMD. The PMD has a BrnzFist S.
Anyway, after getting those items head back to the fork and this time head up.
Go right past the sign and get the BugFrag just behind here. This particular
path heading right leads to a Netdealer:

Yumland 1 Netdealer
RockCube *	500
ColdPunch B	800
Spreader N	800
Catcher T	2000

Nothing exceptional. Go back to the sign. This time take the path leading up
and around to the warp point. Don't go along the moving pathway to your right,
it leads back and to a Mysterious SecurityCube that cannot be opened yet. Head
into the warp point. Here, head up, past the sign and into Yumland 2. Take
the moving path leading to your right. From this central area, take the moving
path leading right again. From here, head up along the pathway to the
furthest pathway in the far end in the area. Underneath the view of a ramp
in a different area, you'll hit a BugFrag. Take it and continue along that
path. At the next area, you'll have to take a moving path to your left. There
is a PMD here in this small area containing a Geyser B! Head past it along
another moving path to your left. Head to the long moving path down. Go
left and go into the first pathway leading up on your left. You'll see a BMD
here containing a Navi+20 *. Head back to where you entered this pathway and
go to the right instead. At this next fork, heading right will lead backwards,
so instead go left. Continuously stay on this path until you'll find you can
go up along the green ramp you saw earlier. Head up. Go into the warp point
next to the purple navi.

A cutscene will occur where the King of Yumland and his last forces are
preparing to attack a mysterious and apparently deadly Navi who destroyed
his entire country. When they are about to attack him, ninjas come from
behind and assault and delete the remaining forces. The King questions the
Navi about why he is doing this and he says that Gospel asked him to. With
that, he deletes the King. The Navi talks with his Operator, Dark. He has
another mission so he jacks out. A civilian Navi approaches the King and
checks if he is alright. Sad music plays and the King dies. With his last
words, he tells the Navi to warn other countries about Gospel. With that,
the scene fades out and you see MegaMan warp into the YumSquare Entrance.

There are four paths. You emerged from the east, which leads to Yumland 2.
To the north, there is a warp point shortcut to Yumland 1. To the west, is
an inactive warp point. Which means... The YumSquare is down south. You'll
notice it has the octagonal warp point like the other two square entrances.
Head into it.

MegaMan finds the entire Square empty. He thinks something bad has happened...
At that moment, he hears some clicking noises. Lan orders him to investigate.
Move around the yellow area, along the winding path and past the Netdealers'
counters. As you are heading past it, MegaMan hears the noise again. Clatter,
clatter... It's louder. Keep heading along the pathway and you'll approach a
small area with a doorway that has a yellow outline. Go up to it and a
cutscene occurs. MegaMan hears the noise louder than ever before. He goes
in. There's a lone navi in this area that you may recognise is similar to
the Board Room in the Square and the Netdealer area in KotoSquare. Talk to
the lone navi.

The sad music plays as he says that Yumland was destroyed by a mysterious
Navi. The loud noise can still be heard... MegaMan asks what happened but
Yumland language cannot be understood. He starts up the translation program.
MegaMan introduces himself and his motives. The navi explained he jacked in
a little late and found the Square in this state. The King died and said that
their next target was Electopia! Just as MegaMan is about to leave and warn
the authorities, another strange Navi enters the scene. He will not let
him leave! It's Gospel's Yumland Occupation Force's Vice Commander, CutMan!
He cleans up survivors as Vice Commander in the countries the Commander has
conquered. With that, he launches into battle.

>> BOSS: CUTMAN <<
HP 600
Scissor Cut: CutMan uses those blades on his head to move to the front row
and cut MegaMan. Dodge it easily. Or better yet, stay away from the front row.

Floating Scissors: A razor blade hovers around the stone in MegaMan's area,
as a distraction. Dodge it.

Throwing Scissors: CutMan throws a razor blade along one row to try to hit
MegaMan. Dodge it.

CutMan is one of the easiest bosses in the game. All you need to do is
not get in close range of him. His attacks are predictable and he is easy
to hit. His attacks are high-damaging, that's your only concern.

With his demise, CutMan warns that Commander ShadowMan is probably on his
way to Electopia now and that he is far superior to him. MegaMan checks on
the Navi and he tells MegaMan he sent the balloon to be friends, but not
involve him in these affairs. He apologises. Lan and MegaMan say not to worry
and they jack out, to quickly get the news to Lan's Dad.

vi. Invasion of Electopia (INVSN)
    =====================
The scene changes to several hours later in the Official Center. Gospel has
sent a telegram claiming responsibility for the attack on Yumland. They also
have said that their next target is Electopia. Chaud decides to leave at that
point to investigate. Dr. Hikari (Lan's Dad) agrees and says he will quickly
make a powerful weapon to stop the Navi. He also says to summon all Official
Netbattlers across Electopia and to take guard against hackers. The Official
left after Dr. Hikari departs asks a scientist to take the first series of
protective measures and to warn all Officials across Electopia. He does so.

The scene once again switches back to Lan and MegaMan in Lan's house. They
prepare to leave and the player regains control of Lan. Just then, Lan gets
an e-mail from his Dad to visit the Lab. That's what we were doing anyway!

Head to the ACDC Station and as you enter you'll get another e-mail. It's
an e-mail from that Unknown 'huh' guy, this time about the Retro Chip
Trader. Go to Marine Harbor.

At the station, you'll see a boy near the Snack Bar here. He'll want a
PoisMask S for a VariaSwrd B chip. We don't have that chip yet. Head outside.
Go up to Ribitta and challenge her and ToadManV2. He has 600HP now and is a
crap-load more annoying, but with a bit of luck you'll pull through OK. You'll
get a ToadMan T chip for your trouble. If you head near the Official Center,
you'll notice that it is heavily guarded by Officials now. Head inside.

There are tonnes of Officials near the Host Computer and none at reception.
Don't go into the elevator yet; in case you were wondering, it's the door
just next to the Host Computer. Instead, go to the License Office. You can't
take a test, but there are a few things to notice. First, there's a camper
woman near the exit who will trade an Escape N for a Hammer Z. You've
probably not obtained the chip yet. Don't worry so much - at least for now.
Go to the Request Board and you'll see there a few more requests to take on
board. (PS I do things in reverse order, the requests appear from bottom to
top but I am lazy)

Request: Need a Cupid
Info: I've fallen madly in love! The problem is, I'm too shy to come out and
say it! Somebody help me out, please! Please come to the campground entrance.
Solving: Go to Okuden. At the entrance, there's an old man. Speak to him. He
wants to confess his love for her but he cannot. MegaMan suggests writing
a love letter and he does so. He says she is in a place where flowers bloom,
because she loves them. Her nickname is Sunflower. Lan will then receive the
LoveLetr.

Before you leave, you might consider going into the Okuden entrance. There,
head down near the river and there will be a boy there who wants an Invis1 *
in exchange for an Escape N. See a pattern? You NEED that chip for the
camper woman! Invis1 *s are easy to get. We'll get one as we complete this
request.

Now, head to Marine Harbor. There's a lady in the green patch with flowers in
the middle of the area (just next to the steps). She is Sunflower, talk to her.
She says to Lan to tell him to 'Start as a friend'. Return to Okuden. Talk to
the old man and he'll be ecstatic. He'll reward you with 10000Z... Very useful
indeed.

Now, before we continue to do requests, let's get that Invis1 *, shall we?
Head to Yumland 1. Here, make a left turn at the beginning along the moving
path. This path is near the sign for the Netdealer. Take the winding path
and grab the BMD containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 400 17MB

Now, what you need to do is S rank a Spooky that is very common in Yumland.
I recommend finding a few by themselves and hitting them with a mass target
attack. Also, make sure you pick up a Satellite G by getting a decent rank
on a Sparky virus. This will come in handy later.

You might also want to make an emergency stop at KotoSquare to buy some
upgrades for MegaMan. For curiosity's sake, here is my status:

MegaMan HP 420 17MB LVL 33 Attack 1 Rapid 1 Charge 5

1 Recov50 *
1 AreaGrab S

OK, once you're done, jack out and head back to Okuden. give the kid an
Invis1 *. He'll give Escape N AND a HPMemory! What a nice guy!

MegaMan HP 440

Now, go back to Marine Harbor and into the License Office. Trade the camper
woman her Hammer Z for your Escape N. Now it's time to take up another
request.

Request: Paying in advance
Info: I'll pay in advance, with an item you won't get elsewhere. The job
is easy, and the reward is great - act now! If you're interested then
hurry over to Yumland 1! My black Navi is waiting for you there.
Solving: Head to Yumland 1, the fastest way is from Dex's PC. Talk to the
purple Navi looking at the sign that leads to Yumland 2. He'll immediately
give you GateKeyB. He'll then reveal his true self: a thief who preys on
City Netbattlers! He sets the bait with his request, steals their chips
when their guard is down after getting their reward and sells the chips on
the black market. Naturally, you aren't going to surrender that easily!
Enter virus battle...

Sparky, Flamey2, Flamey2

It's a good idea to delete a Flamey first to free up a little space. Take out
the Sparky thereafter and delete the last Flamey with little trouble. Now,
after the battle you're free to leave with your prize!

But wait - what does the GateKeyB do, you ask? Jack out and go to Lan's PC.
In Den Area 1, head immediately to the left and you can see many inactive
warp points. The blockade that was here is now gone! Go up the left side
and go to the warp point in the top left of the area. Stand on it and it
will activate with your GateKey! You now have a VERY quick access point to
YumSquare Entrance. This will prove very useful...

Anyway, jack out and head to the Request Board again. You might want to take
on GutsManV3, but I recommend you don't - at least not yet. You're not
strong enough. Anyway, take on the final request there for the moment.

Request: Chip please!
Info:    Our water heating program is busted. We've no hot water. Do you have
lots of chips? Can you give me a 'FireSwrd F'? Of course, I'll give you a
'Slasher L' in return. I'm in the lobby of the Center, so look for me there.
First person that comes gets the goods.
Solving: Go upstairs and there's a fat lady near the stairs. You need a
FireSwrd F. You need to fight Swordy2's to get it. I don't blame you if you
don't have it yet - you'll soon get a good chance to grab it. In case you
were wondering, you can find a few in Koto Area. Just leave the request for
now, we'll come back to it.

OK, now that we're finally done with them... Go up the elevator. Hit the
switch next to the door. You can't simply approach it; kind of stupid, I know.
You'll be on the top floor of the Official Center, Dad's Lab. Go right and
talk to Dr. Hikari. They talk of the invasion and what happened in Yumland.
Officials are now on the Net patrolling (as you no doubt saw). Dr. Hikari
is trying to locate a program called 'Chng.bat' that can power up
MegaMan exponentially. He says to look in the Board Room, so that's our
next destination. Before leaving, there are a few things to be done. Examine
Dr. Hikari's Lab coat. You'll get a PowerUP!

MegaMan HP 440 Attack 2 Rapid 1 Charge 5 LVL 38

Continue along where you can see a winding path lead somewhere. You should
see a grey version of the Chip Trader. This is the Retro Chip Trader Hig...
I mean the 'Unknown' guy was talking about. Take the winding path and you'll
enter the area you should be familiar with; where the cutscene occurred when
Gospel warned Electopia of the upcoming attack. This is the conference area,
head over the massive screen. Jack into the control panel on the right hand
side.

You're in the Wide Monitor. Collect the BMD just to your left to get
Aqua+40 *. Go to the top right of the area and collect another BMD
containing a BugFrag. After that, fight some viruses if you want and jack
out.

Head down the elevator and use the Host Computer to the left to enter the
Square immediately. Enter the Board Room. View the board in the top right
of the area and MegaMan will post a message requesting info on the program
'Chng.bat'. Now, we have to talk to everyone in the Square to pass time.
First off, I recommend reading all the info on every board. Exit back into
the Square and chat with EVERYONE here. Finally, return to the Board Room
and check the board where MegaMan posted. IronMan posts a reply that is
actually useful; a girl who hangs with a boy in ACDC Town is a good
programmer. MegaMan and Lan agree to find her. Jack out.

Go to ACDC Town park and talk to the bulky man there with a green shirt.
His wife is actually in the Campgrounds at Okuden. He gives you a Battery
that his wife forgot for her PET. Go to Okuden in the Camp area. Talk to
the camper woman standing in front of a tent in the far west. She'll say that
one of her friends who has a purple Navi and resides in KotoSquare mentioned
it. She'll give you NoteData to give to him. Now, go all the way back to
ACDC Town and go to KotoSquare.

Once you make the long journey here, go to near where there is a program
blocking a barrier. There's a purple Navi here (not the one in a nook, the
other one to the left of the program). He'll tell you the program is in
YumSquare and he'll give you the YumKey. Your next location is YumSquare...
But there's one last errand to run before that.

Jack out and go all the way back to Okuden Camp to the programming expert
woman. As a reward for delivering NoteData, you'll get GateKeyA! Return all
the way back to Lan's PC. Head to Den Area 1 and go to the area with all
the inactive warp points. Head to the right and stand on the first one you
see. You can now quickly access the Square Entrance! The inactive warp point
there is now activated. Finally, go back to Den Area 1. From here, use your
other shortcut (Route B) to get to YumSquare Entrance quickly. Go into
YumSquare.

From here, make the familiar journey all the way around to the yellow
outlined door. Enter here and keep heading straight. Use YumKey to unlock
the barrier in front of you. Grab the PMD in the little area afterwards
that contains Chng.bat. Right after retrieving it, the security system
activates! But, MegaMan cannot simply jack out. We have to walk manually
to exit YumSquare. Start walking out of the room and along the pathway.
A ghost Navi will appear and send some viruses at you!

Spooky3, Spooky3

These guys aren't too hard. Use standard Spooky strategy; delete them in
one shot because they will keep recovering... After the viruses are deleted,
continue down the path. Just before the shopping area, another ghost will
appear and send some viruses at you.

TuffBunny, TuffBunny, MettFire

Delete the TuffBunnies first and handle the MettFire last. If they hit you,
you'll be assaulted by more paralysis and meteors hitting you. Multiple
hits at once = bad... After their defeat, proceed past the shopping area.
As you continue down, another ghost with more viruses appears.

Swordy3, Spooky2, Spooky2

The Swordy is your biggest threat. Delete it VERY quickly before its damage
is done. The Spookies will be easy from that point on. If the Swordy
traps you, you're as good as deleted... Keep going after they are deleted.
Right at the exit, a final ghost Navi appears.

Mettaur2, TuffBunny, MettFire

The pesky guys are the Mettaur and Bunny. The MettFire will follow suit. The
previous battle is actually much more difficult than this one. Don't forget
when he hids behind his rock that you can hit him with spreading chips or
wave chips. Head to the exit. Once back in YumSquare Entrance, Lan and
MegaMan talk for a bit and you regain control of MegaMan. Jack out.

We've got Chng.bat, so head to Dad's Lab. Dr. Hikari will be in his work
station. Talk to him. He installs it to MegaMan. Just afterwards, there
will be an emergency broadcast that something has infiltrated the Square!
Head back down the elevator. Talk to the old man Official in front of
the Host Computer for a FireBlade R. With that, jack into the Host
Computer to go to the Square. The Square is deserted, save for one evil
Navi. Talk to him. He says that he is a diversion and that it is too late;
Commander ShadowMan has infiltrated the Electopian Mother Computer! With
that, he says he will eliminate MegaMan. Another virus battle begins...

Goofball

This guy isn't exactly the hardest enemy in the world, but he isn't easy.
His gas poisons MegaMan, rapidly lowering his HP each second he is exposed.
On top of that, the Goofball is completely shielded from conventional
attacks. The best strategy is to use mass targeting attacks WHEN the
mask is spurting poison gas. GutsMan, WideSwrds, Heat V etc. will be
effective. He has 300HP, which is a significant amount. The virus will also
try to trap you with AreaGrabs to poison you to death. Good luck! Heat Vs
are EXTREMELY effective against him; 100 damage per hit! After the virus is
deleted, jack out! Lan must warn Dr. Hikari...

Go to Dad's Lab using the elevator. Dr. Hikari says that something has invaded
the Mother Computer extremely quickly! His weapon is also still incomplete.
Lan volunteers to go to the Mother Computer. Dr. Hikari says that the Officials
are on the job, so he can help. On the same floor, take the left path
(the opposite direction from Dr. Hikari) and enter the door that was
previously blocked.

Lan will find himself in the Mother Computer room. After a quick talk with
MegaMan, it's time to hurry and help the Officials! Proceed down the grey
path. There'll be another cutscene where Lan talks with the Officials;
a woman, a young man and an old man. They jack into the control panel and
dispel the barrier in the way. They continue along. Go along the path. The
Officials are tied up trying to open the next barrier. The old man tells
you to help out, so jack into the control panel.

This is Mother Computer1... It looks like something out of a geometry
textbook. Anyway, proceed down the path. You'll notice that there are some
tiles in the way. The programs give hints to press the panels in the
correct order. You need to figure out the code. The program says:
Curiosity killed the ---
The answer, is of course CAT. Take the bottom C, because the top C will lead
to a trap. If you screw up, you'll warp back at the red tile next to the
programs. Not a big deal. The blue tiles with letters turn green when the
passcode is solved. Head past this little corner.

At this stage, I encountered a Swordy2. I beat it and got that FireSwrd F
I wanted. In addition, this battle is fixed for something good to happen.
The screen glows and MegaMan gets a style change. Dr. Hikari explains it.
I got WoodShield... It's a good style, but it won't help me in this place!
You see, your style is based on the way your battle. I've explained it better
in the Style Change section. I got a Shield style because I used a lot of
defensive chips (recovery etc.). The element, on the other hand, is completely
random. Congratulations on the style change, whatever you get. Don't worry,
you can change styles again (refer to Style Change for more details).

Continue down the winding path and head into the blue panel to warp somewhere
else. From here, follow the path and at the fork, continue straight. Pick
up the BMD containing 800Z. Backtrack and at the fork, take the central
path to go all the way to a green Navi. He says some random hint about
colours being related. Head back to the fork and take the furthest one to
the right (but not backwards to where you came from). You'll see another
program giving a hint.

I lie in a bed, but never sleep. What am I?
RIVER

Solve the puzzle. At the next fork, follow the path straight to a BMD
containing a HPMemory.

MegaMan HP 460

Go back to the fork and take the right path all the way to an Official Navi,
who makes a comment about the puzzles being tough. Yeah... SURE they're
tough (cough). Backtrack to the fork and head left (it's a bit higher
up from the initial fork you took). At the next fork, head to the left and
pick up the BMD containing a Recov30 *. Continue along this path to see
a pink Navi, who gives the next hint:

What are the two missing letters?
-et-attler
It doesn't take a genius to realise they are N & B.

This time at the fork, head along the centre path and pass the two sets of
lettered panels standing on N & B. Head past the puzzle and along the
winding path to the control panel (inside the control panel? ._.) MegaMan
starts the door release program. Right after that, a ninja Navi appears
(one of ShadowMan's grunts). The Officials appear and this allows MegaMan
time to jack out (we're in a hurry to stop ShadowMan!). The Officials are
too tired to fight, so they decide to self-detonate themselves in full
power mode. After they are gone, you're in control of Lan outside the
control panel. The Officials are decommissioned, their Navis are gone. It's
up to Lan, yet again. Proceed past the now unblocked barrier.

Jack into the next control panel. Right after MegaMan enters, ProtoMan appears.
Chaud and ProtoMan are on the scene! He tells Lan to stay out of Officials'
affairs and ProtoMan starts moving towards the next area. We can't let
him take all the glory, now can we? Proceed up and you'll see a series of
programs in dead ends. Veer off to the right path and follow it to a BMD
containing a Spreader P. Go back to the programs. If you go along the left
path, you'll see a lone program in front of the puzzle. He says that A
is more honest than B, B more honest than C, and D more honest than A. Logic
dictates that D is the most honest. So go back to the dead ends and talk
to program D (the furthest one to the right).

He says the password is:
AFBECD
All the other programs are lying. Go back to the puzzle on the left path. Solve
it using that code. D was the correct one... Duh. At the next fork, head left
and around the winding path for a BMD containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 460 18MB

Backtrack to the fork and this time head right. A the next fork, go to
the far right path to see another program giving more hints.

2 hands, no arms.
1 face, no nose.
On your arm.

Go back to the fork and this time go left. There's another puzzle. The program
here says:

What do you call a chronometer you can wear?

That seals the answer; WATCH

Check to see which W you press at the beginning. Plan ahead! After solving
the puzzle, right next to it is a BMD containing 600Z. Head past the
puzzle. At the next fork, going right leads to three forks containing programs
with hints. From left to right, they are:

2nd letter is L.
5th letter is S.
10th letter is R.

The central path has a BMD containing a Wrecker Q. The program here says:

1st letter is A.
4th letter is O.
8th letter is H.

The last program on the far right says:

3rd letter is M.
7th letter is T.
Last letter is E.

Backtrack to the fork and head up. The program here says, make two
words from:

ere last moth

The answer is ALMOST THERE. Watch which letters you press carefully. Head
past the puzzle.

Another cutscene will occur. ProtoMan is facing ShadowMan, who is in turn
guarding the control panel. MegaMan rushes to help him. Chaud says to Lan
to make MegaMan jack out and search the main system while ProtoMan takes on
ShadowMan. MegaMan jacks out. Head over to the big system, the control
panel guarding the main system of Mother Computer. Jack in.

From here, head up the path. The program says that the terrain has become
grass, which means wood enemies can recover on it. At the fork, head
right and around to see a program who says:

MASK
WIG

Pick up the BMD next to him to get a BugFrag. Head back to the fork and go
left. At the next fork, continue left. Pick up the BMD along the path
containing a Shotgun *. Continue and you'll realise to your right that
the fork before was in a circle (both ways led to the puzzle). But we're
not prepared yet. Head to your left and enter the blue tile. A program
is residing where you warp to. He says: connect the words, last letters
to first, for this key. Now, backtrack all the way to the main big puzzle
area with four lettered tile areas. The program wandering here says:

GEM
KNIFE

Start with the lower left square and enter WIG. Now proceed (carefully
treading past the letters) to the lower right square and enter GEM. Now, go
to the upper left square and enter MASK and finally go to the upper right
square and enter KNIFE. Head past the weird control panel on the wall that says
YOU CANNOT ESCAPE NOW. The program near a puzzle says to read the letters on
the wall. Head right and read the control panel here that says FEAR AND
DANGER AWAIT! Continue along this path to a small area with a panel, BMD
and program. The BMD is a PanelOut3 *. The control panel says BEGINNING
TO WORRY? GOOD LUCK! Finally, talk to the program that says read the 3rd
letter, top to bottom. Head back to the unsolved puzzle.

U CAN GO

Make sure you press the N that is past the blank space and don't get tricked
into pressing the N next to the A. At the next fork, head directly up and
get the BMD in the dead end containing a Recov80 F. Backtrack to the fork
and this time go left. You'll be met with another puzzle. The program
remembers THE QUICK BROWN FOX...

JUMPS

After that, proceed through to the next area.

The program wandering here says:

Itsy-bitsy

There are three more programs that are next to another puzzle that say:
8 legs
Spins webs
Muffet foe

Naturally, the answer is SPIDER. At the fork after this puzzle, follow the
right path all the way around for yet another BMD containing 1000Z. Go
back to the fork and go up. There is another puzzle. The program asks,
what did William Tell hit with his arrow?

APPLE

Head past to encounter another program that asks, what insect starts
bathing, and ends up drab? Go past him. Follow the long string of letters
and press:

B

Head past the puzzle and at the fork head to the far left. At the very
end is a program that says:

Program 2 in charge of the password OTIEP

Take the middle path in the fork around all the way to a moving program near
a BMD. The BMD contains a WideSwrd L. The program says:

Program 1 in charge of the password DNGVU

Backtrack to the puzzle you did last and this time from that fork, head
right. Go to the next puzzle, where a program says arrange the program's
letters like so: Program 1, 2, 1, 2...

DONT GIVE UP

After solving this puzzle, pick up the BMD containing a Hammer T and head
off to the next area.

There's two programs here in front of a puzzle. They say:

I'm an animal
I wear a mask...

RACCOON

Make sure to press the right Cs. Head past the puzzle and along the path.
At the next fork, head right and at the dead end pick up the BMD containing
1400Z. Now, talk to the program nearby that says A-C-E... What are the
next 10 letters? EASY. Head all the way left. There's a puzzle here.
We ALL know the alphabet - don't we...?

GIKMOQSUWY

Don't get confused by the sequential letters next to each one! At the
next fork, head left and all the way around to a lone program, who says:
21, 18, 21, 15, 26, 25, 12, 16, 14, 23, 11. Backtrack to the fork and
head up and left. There's yet another code puzzle and a program that
says: DARETHEY SLAYME? The answer is:

SYSTEM AHEAD

That was perfectly obvious, now, wasn't it... <_< You'll see another puzzle
right ahead and two programs.

Program A in charge of the password STCLS
Program B in charge of the password YSEMOE

Head into the blue panel to their left and take the path to the BMD and
another program. The BMD contains a RegUP2.

MegaMan HP 460 20MB

The program says: ABBABBAABAB... Backtrack to the puzzle and enter:

SYSTEM

At the next puzzle directly in front of you, enter:

CLOSE

You'll see YET ANOTHER puzzle and a program in front of it. But first,
head to your right and talk to the program in the dead end here, who
talks about ShadowMan's Shadow technique. Head up and retrieve a BMD
containing FullEnrg. A boss battle is near! Talk to the two green programs
above.

black bird, cold bird, water bird

Find the one that doesn't belong, everyone else is a bird.

Return to the puzzle and the green program says the password is hidden in:
PSECV
WANIR
NGURU
OISNW

The answer is: VIRUS

Once the puzzle flashes, you can see the feet of ShadowMan. Get ready for
a boss battle...

MegaMan realises the ShadowMan fighting ProtMan is a fake. Dr. Hikari
suddenly appears and says he is done with the anti-ShadowMan battlechip;
the Ultimate Blaster. It's installed into MegaMan but it has only ONE
shot. ShadowMan quickly points out that just behind him is the core
of the Mother Computer. If MegaMan misses, the Mother Computer is gone...
Suddenly, at that moment ProtoMan reappears and holds ShadowMan. ProtoMan
says that he can be revived with backup data if he is deleted. Just
when MegaMan is firing, the ninja Navis reappear and take the blast's
full force! The ninjas are deleted, but ShadowMan is still alive. ProtoMan
must jack out because he is too weak. With that, ShadowMan launches an
attack.

>> BOSS: SHADOWMAN <<
HP 800
Shadow: ShadowMan splits up into three ShadowMans (men?) but only one is
real. Hit the real one, who has a HP gauge under him. If you hit the wrong
one, ShadowMan uses his Shuriken Strike. If you hit the right one, the others
disappear.

Fire Blast: ShadowMan (and his Shadows) send a blast of fire down every
row. Dodge if possible.

Shuriken Strike: ShadowMan launches a series of shurikens at MegaMan.
Dodge quickly and keep dodging!

Ghost Ninja: ShadowMan summons two ghost illusions that block MegaMan's
way, stay in his area and cut him with swords.

ShadowMan has quite an arsenal of techniques at his disposal. The thing is,
he doesn't usually make good use of them. He isn't aggressive, at least
not at this stage. The Ghost Ninjas and Shadows are your main threat. Finish
him off - you may be down to your last few chips.

ShadowMan is deleted. After everyone offers to help ProtoMan, Chaud refuses
and departs. MegaMan declares that the situation is safe. The Officials'
Navis all have backup data, so everyone pulled through OK in the end. Dad
says he will come home and Lan is very happy.

Elsewhere, a Gospel superior comments that Dark was all talk and no action.
He talks to an inferior and says his report was inaccurate. The inferior
says that Chaud and Lan's progressive growth was unexpected. The superior
states the Second Rule of Gospel; death to those who make lame excuses.
The superior has a name; Mr. Admin. Let's call him that for now. The
administrator presumably kills the inferior. He is angry at the failures
around him. Another person enters and everything seems going according to
plan for their 'project'. The admin asks about some data. The person
says that they will get it very soon. The admin comments that they are very
confident but the person pleases him by saying that they can deal with
any interferences. The admin orders that they show Lan and Chaud what it
means to defy him...

vii. Journey to Netopia = (NTPIA) =
     ===================
Once again we're in Lan's house. MegaMan is trying to make Lan do his
homework because vacation is already half over. MegaMan is about to do
Lan's homework for him when he checks his e-mail. They read a letter
from the ONBA (Official Netbattling Association) that because of Gospel's
emergence as a netmafia superpower, they will have a conference called
the Official NetBattler Meeting to discuss strategies and reveal details of
important information they have obtained. This conference will take place
in the NetBattler HQ in Netopia. Lan and MegaMan also happen to get a
Ticket so that they can travel to Netopia. With that, they make preparations.
Just after the player regains control over Lan, he gets an e-mail from
Dr. Hikari about his new style. Read it and learn it well. A future
reference to remember: Every style change you get, whenever you are back in
Lan's room you'll get an e-mail from Dr. Hikari explaining it.

Head outside and talk to Mom. She says you need to go to the Official Center
for a Passport. Leave Lan's house. Go to the station. As soon as you enter,
you will receive an e-mail. Actually, there are two e-mails. The first is
from Dr. Hikari, he wants you to drop into his Lab. The second is from
Mr. Famous. Yes, TEH Famous (OK, maybe I'm starting to go overboard...). If
you manage to beat him again, he'll give you a new ChipFolder to use...
Sounds interesting. Buy a ticket and head over to Marine Harbor Station.
You see Chaud! Talk to him and he says he is busy... Arrogant. Exit here
into Marine Harbor since you don't have that PoisMask S yet.

You'll notice the place is near deserted. Ribitta is gone and so are all
the Officials on alert. Anyway, head down the stairs and you'll notice in
the little passage near the License Office door between the ledge and the
staircase a little girl running - so fast it's like you imagined her there.
Talk to her and you'll receive a Geddon3 Y. Now, go back up into the Official
Center.

First thing's first. Go to the fat lady and give that blasted FireSwrd F
to her (If you haven't got it yet I suggest going to Mother Computer again).
She'll give you a Slasher L. She can now have her hot bath again (bad image -
bad image...)

Head up the elevator. Talk to the scientist standing near where Dr. Hikari
would normally stand (the place OTHER than his workstation). He says that
Dr. Hikari, being an ace Net Navi developer, is busy. He said that he did
something with his PC before leaving. Head to the workstation and press A
on the desk facing east from where you enter it. Dr. Hikari left a note
saying that he apologises for not being there, but he has sent a battlechip
for you. You'll get a SilvFist I. Now head down to the bottom floor.

From here, go to the central counter with a lady on it. You can choose
from three options. If you want to be a pimp, choose 'You're pretty' and
you'll get shut down. Choose 'I want a passport'. She says to go to the
counter to the right. Go to the lady on the far right of the room behind a
counter. You'll get your Passport. You're now *almost* ready to go to
Netopia.

But first, we can't let Famous think he's the best, can we? Challenge him
and his GateManV2. He's now got 800HP. The easiest way to take him down...
There is none. He's very tough, so don't be discouraged if you lose the
first few times. Hit him hard with your best chips. Once he gets weaker,
he'll use that accursed RemoGate to cause more havoc. If you have the
LifeSwrd1 Program Advance (which you should) you can hit him hard for 400
damage. The LifeSwrd is your number one finisher. Don't feel pressured by
his attacks; dodge calmly and cooly and make premeditated attacks. You'll get
a GateMan G chip if you managed to beat him. You're getting one step closer
to your ultimate goal... I'll talk about that later. You'll also receive
for your troubles Famous's Folder. He also e-mails you instructions on how
to use it (like his folder is actually any good...). He basically teaches
you how to swap folders.

Here's Famous's Folder:(30)

We're very close to being ready to go to Netopia. But first, let's review
our status:

Head downstairs to the License Office. Go to the Request Board to see one new
request. We can handle it!

Request: For male pride
Info:    I am going to Netbattle a guy. The problem is, I may lose. Can
someone help me out here? I'm waiting at the entrance to the Square. Please,
save my male pride from embarrassment. Help me!!!
Solving: Head on over to the Square Entrance, any way you see fit. Talk to
the pink navi in the top left corner near the way to the Square. He is
going to Netbattle his rival and wants you to spy on him. He's training in
the cyberworld, but not on the Net. He has found a quiet place to relax
and train. Jack out and head to Okuden. From here, go to Camp Road 2 and
jack into the Guardian. Once inside, go to the bottom left corner and talk
to the green Navi. He's training hard, so he's the one. Select the options
'I'm a fan' and 'What is your plan?' (at least that's what I did - I
don't think it matters). He says that he will confuse his opponent with
his speed and that he has no plan. He also refuses to say his weak point.
Return all the way to the Square Entrance to the pink navi. He says he will
counter with a high damaging, accurate chip. He then asks you for the chip
Satelite1 G. If you were paying attention to the walkthrough, I told you to
get one from Yumland 1 a while back. If not, bust Sparkies in Yumland 1 and
get a decent rank to get one. He'll happily accept it and give you your
reward; a RegUP2.

MegaMan HP 460 22MB

Finally, you're pretty much ready to go to the Airport. I recommend going to
KotoSquare and investing in every upgrade MegaMan can get.

MegaMan HP 480

After that, go to the resident station and purchase a ticket for the Airport,
the newest option available. Take the Metroline.

Head out of the station through the red set of stairs pointing upwards. You're
in the Departure Lobby. Talk to Mayl and she will hand you RollV2 R and a
Wireless. Go to Chaud. He says some more pompous crap about you butting in
on his business. After that, take the left pathway past the man in a white
shirt. Lan will put the ticket through the machine and you can pass. Head
along and at the next scanner. It detects Lan has some dangerous object. It
turns out to be his PET... The man confiscates it and gives you a crappy
MiniPET. You get an e-mail at that moment from Yai. She wants a present...
Typical. Continue forward. Approach the man at the counter and show him
your Passport, as well as telling him your destination. After that, continue
onwards to the next area.

Just as you enter, a strange blonde-haired man bumps into you. He knocks
your MiniPET out of your hand, but retrieves it. He goes on his way. Lan
checks it and realises the man was a thief! He stole all your money... This
is why I told you to purchase all the upgrades you could. Anyway, don't
worry too much. Go over to Chaud. He hands you your PET back. It doesn't
matter which option you choose. Head over to the Duty Free Shop and talk
to the little boy here.

This fathead boy is the Quiz. Accept his challenge of five questions.
* Answers are capitalised, or with arrows pointing to them
Q1] What animal does the ACDC Town Park Slide look like?
As] Squirrel ELEPHANT Giraffe

Q2] What distinguishes the Marine Station kiosk?
As] THE SELECTION The Low Prices The Pretty Staff

Q3] How many tents are in Okuden Valley Campground?
As] 2 >3< 4 (the answer is three)

Q4] Where did the Marine Harbor Cafe waitress work before?
As] RESTAURANT Arcade The Center

Q5] Choose cannons in A, B, and C order, and what do you get?
As] Omega Cannon Ultra Cannon ZETA CANNON

Your reward for answering his pathetically easy quiz is a Cannon *. What
did you expect? A crappy reward for a crappy game...

Well, you're done here. Head past the lady at the counter and you'll go
to Netopia. The screen blackens and it says 10 hours later...

You're in Netopia, in Boarding. Speak to the woman at the counter. Go down
the stairs and talk to the man at the counter here. MegaMan starts up the
translation system on your command and the man greets you. Show him your
passport and say you're going to 'Uh, meeting'. You're done with him. Keep
heading along down and you'll see a familiar face - Ribitta! Her ToadManV3
is ready to go. But I wouldn't challenge her, at least not yet. ToadMan is
one hell of an enemy now... Leave him for later. Go to the exit. Before
leaving, customise your folder and place a Guard * somewhere in your Folder.
Some jackass is going to steal your Pack. Exit.

A black man with suspicious sunnies comes up to you as you exit. He offers
a free ride to Lan and MegaMan into the city. As you enter Netopia Park,
the guy reveals himself as a black market dealer. He steals chips and
sells them, because Electopian chips are ultra-rare. If you didn't see this
coming, you'd be understandably pissed. That's why I warned you. Anyway,
your Pack is gone, but we'll eventually get that AND a crap load of money in
due time.

Go up to the Castle from the Park. Enter. You'll see a familiar scientist
to the left. He's a Subchip Peddler.

Subchip Peddler Netopia Castle
MiniEnrg	50
FullEnrg	400
LocEnemy	10000

Keep heading up and Chaud will say his charismatic 'Hmph!' Well, you're at
least a little familiar with this area, but there's one thing left to do
in the Castle. Go to the right to the divine goddess statue and jack in. There
are some strong viruses here, so be a little wary. Go directly straight and
up to collect a BMD containing an Unlocker. Handy! Jack out. Exit the
Castle and go down. Follow the path you see here west and exit the Park.

You're in Netopia Town. Talk to the black woman nearby to find out where
the hotel is. I'll guide you there anyway. Follow the path. You can see
in the corner here (when you reach it) a yellow Chip Trader. This is a
Chip Trader Special version, it trades 10 chips for a good chip. You can
see just next to it is the hotel, marked by the words HOTEL. Enter it through
the big green doors. MegaMan and Lan have a fight about Lan's misfortune.
It ends up with Lan abandoning MegaMan. Lan leaves the hotel.

Go back to Netopia Park. Talk to the new office guy with the funky Einstein
hair. This is Mr. Higsy, as players of MegaMan Battle Network would
remember. He's the 'Unknown huh' guy who establishes Chip Traders around the
entire world. Higsy talks to Lan about how he and MegaMan are inseparable
and all this crap about friendship. Lan agrees he must reconcile with
MegaMan. With that, Higsby disappears. Go back to your hotel.

Talk to MegaMan, who says that a thief (ANOTHER ONE?!) came in, sent a virus
to MegaMan's PET and stole Lan's passport. MegaMan beat the virus with
some injuries. Lan restores MegaMan and reconciles with him. They agree to
find the thief and get Lan's Passport back. Or else... Lan cannot go home!
The first thing you should do is to examine the fridge. You'll get a
HPMemory!

MegaMan HP 500

We hit the 500 mark... You can jack in, so do so. Go to the top left
corner of the Refrigerator and get the BMD containing a BugFrag. Next, head
to the centre of the area where there are two programs. Use your newly
acquired Unlocker to open the PMD in the middle containing an ElecSwrd *.
Put that in your Folder. Jack out. Exit the hotel.

We need to search for clues. The old lady next to the entrance to the hotel
says a guy at the park will know what to do. But first, go left and continue
until you see Higsby. Talk with him and he'll be happy to see the duo
reunited. He'll reward you with a Quake2 W, TreeBom1 *, and a SonicWav I.
He'll be going now. Follow the old lady's advice and go to Netopia Park.

Talk to the old man on the far top right corner of the garden. He says that
Jim, who lives on a back street can help Lan. So that's our next clue...
Go to Netopia Town. Head left past the hotel until you see a gap in the
wall. Enter this area.

Funky music, eh? Go over to the trash cans and examine the one furthest to
the left. You'll get a RegUP2.

MegaMan HP 500 24MB

Now, head along the path past all the weird dancers. There's a little black
boy near the exit to this area. Talk to him. He is Jim and he will help on
the condition you will give him a Guard * (this is why I said keep one >_<).
Say you will give it to him and he tells you the Passport is almost certainly
already on the Net. The only way to reach it is through the radio that is
transmitting funky music. You need Raoul's permission first, though. He
says you better hurry, because if it has reached the Undernet you're doomed.

Now to find Raoul. He's the leader of the Underground. Head back right the
way you came. The drunk guy with sunglasses says that Raoul is the guy
under the hoops. If you go to top right corner, you'll see a man with
pigtails standing next to a basketball hoop. Talk to him and he says that he
will not help weaklings. In order to gain permission to jack into his radio,
you need to beat him and his Net Navi, ThunderMan to gain entry. We don't
have much choice, so accept his challenge.

>> BOSS: THUNDERMAN <<
700HP
Element: Electric
Weakness: Wood
Storm Clouds: Three clouds hover on all three rows between ThunderMan and
MegaMan. If MegaMan gets trapped, the one cloud that is blocked shocks him.

Bolt Fury: All three clouds fire a burst of electricity down each row. Dodge
if possible.

Thunderbolt: ThunderMan sends a thunderbolt to hit MegaMan a few times. Dodge
quickly, because one attack means that all of them WILL hit you (paralysis).

ThunderMan is quite simply, one of the most annoying enemies in the game. He
is lazy in the fact that his clouds do all the work for him. He just stands
safely behind them, sniping with thunder while his clouds use support attacks.
Find a way to bypass one of the clouds and AreaGrab to hit him with some
sword techniques. Most standard shooting attacks are going to miss; waves
and even bombs are useful for hitting him. Make use of Higsby's present of
a TreeBomb1. Also, use his weakness to wood to your advantage.

Once ThunderMan is defeated, Raoul gives you RaulCode. Go to the left and
follow the path to the radio next to a man with sunnies. You might notice
everyone is friendly to you now. Jack into the radio. Follow the winding
path up and around Raoul's Radio. In the big area, collect the BMD in the
top right corner containing a Navi+20 *. Now, head down and follow the next
winding path to a BMD containing a BugFrag. This BMD is just before the
warp point to the Net, but before that there is something that needs to be
done. In this little area, bust WindBoxes and VacuumFans until you gain
5 Wind G and 5 Fan G. Time-consuming, yes, but you'll thank me later. Observe:

MegaMan HP 500 24MB LVL 47 Attack 2 Rapid 1 Charge 5 WoodShieldV2 (upgraded)
Folder: 30
1 Sword L
1 WideSwrd L
2 LongSwrd L
1 ElecSwrd *
5 Satelit1 G
2 Recov30 *
2 Recov50 *
2 AreaGrab S
5 Wind G
5 Fan G
1 RollV2 R
1 GutsMan G
1 GutsManV2 G
1 GateMan G PRESET

It's a rather basic G-coded version of Gater, the famous uber powerful folder
that was created by WhizKid to S rank every virus in the game. The aim is
to hit the opponent with the Program Advance Gater (Wind, Fan, GateMan) for
a MASSIVE 900 damage. Not bad, eh? And only half-way through the game. The
thing is, this folder relies a little on luck. It works out reasonably well
most of the time, and later we can fine tune it a bit.

Once you're done admiring your Gater Folder, head into the warp. You are
now in Netopia 2. Open up the SecurityCube with RaulCode. Continue along the
path and the purple Navi says that someone at the NetSquare may know about it.
At the fork, head down to the next area, Netopia 1.

This isn't where you are supposed to go yet, but there's something here we can
pick up. Go along the path, all the way around the corner and past the sign.
Take the moving path right and head up the red ramp. You'll notice at the
top here a mysterious SecurityCube. Ignore it for now and go the only
way possible across another moving path. Head past the sign and the green
Navi that says you are in the wrong area (we already know that...). Move
down the right moving path and continue along another moving path to the
right. At the next fork, heading left leads back to a big moving path,
leading to a small area with a PMD containing a Prism Q. Now, backtrack to
the fork and go right. Go down at the big moving path. If you head down, you
will be back in Den Area 3 and you cannot bypass the SecurityCube here.
Instead, go up in the northern moving path and at the next big area, go
up to the right and at the dead end get the BMD containing a BugFrag. Now,
head up and around past the SecurityCube on the other side. Continue down
past another sign, down and to the left. Where there are two moving paths
that split, go off to your right and pick up the BMD in the dead end
containing a Recov50 *. Move back to the fork and veer off to your left on
the moving path. Move to the left around the corner and you'll be in a
familiar location. Go off to your right, past the big moving path that leads
to a PMD. You're back to the green Navi. Keep heading right, past the
moving path and down the red ramp. Go across and around the green pathway
and finally go right, past the sign and follow the path to Netopia 2.

From here, head right and straight. If you like, go right and all the way
around past the moving paths to a GMD that sometimes has a massive 10000G.
Backtrack all the way back to the sign where you were before and go off
to your left. Go up the white ramp and go around the pathway via the
moving paths. Head down another white ramp and go right and go all the
way around the corner. At the next fork, go down past the moving path and
get another BMD in a small area, containing a BugFrag. Return back to the
fork and go all the way left to another sign. If you head up, follow the
path to the Netopia 2 Netdealer:

Netdealer Netopia 2
Wind *		2000
Fan *		2000
Barrier *	4000
ZapRing1 *	5000

VERY useful * chips, but we'll use a glitch later to exploit them. For now,
head back to the sign and go left. Head along the moving paths down and keep
going down to encounter a Mysterious SecurityCube. Not able to opened yet...
Double back to the fork and head up the ramp to the north. To the right,
the ramp there heads backwards, so there is no point going there. Once
you're up the ramp, follow the path and take the moving path up. You'll see
a GMD and a Navi here. It's a travelling NumberMan! He sells interesting,
rare chips. For now, he has:

Travelling NumberMan Netopia 2
Recov120 O	4000
Elec+40 *	5000
CustSwrd B	7500

I don't recommend purchasing anything at this stage, at it is not necessary.
Plus, using a glitch we can exploit this guy as well. Go down and to the
right and go into the warp point. From here, head up and take another
warp point to NetSquare Entrance. Finally! To the north is an inactive
warp point, to the right is the way to Netopia 3 and the left is to NetSquare.
Go to NetSquare.

Head down the ramp, you'll notice NetSquare is the biggest Square of all,
with three levels. On the second level down, talk to the purple Navi who
says that a thug Navi left the Square saying he was heading to a meeting.
Good hint... In this same floor, head up and you'll see the Netdealer at
the counter:

NetSquare Netdealer
HPMemory	8000
HPMemory	12000
HPMemory	16000
PowerUP		10000
Repair *	2400
WideSwrd *	3000
Hammer U	4800
Jealosy J	10000

Purchase all the upgrades you can. The Jealosy is also very useful, get it
if you can.

MegaMan HP 520 LVL 52 Attack 3 Rapid 1 Charge 5

Now, go down to the lowest floor. You'll see a Subchipdealer.

NetSquare Subchipdealer
MiniEnrg	50
FullEnrg	400
SneakRun	200

Nothing good at all. Head down to a blue square and talk to the purple Navi
there. He wants a Hammer Z in exchange for a SilvFist V. Unfortunately, it's
still stolen! Remember this Navi for now. Now, go back to NetSquare Entrance.

From here, go directly right and enter Netopia 3. Follow the green path to
an area with many, many paths that are moving. The two on the far left lead
to a warp that is located on the far right, so those two are dead ends. The
third from the left *sometimes* leads to a GMD, but otherwise is the same
as the other two dead ends. So, you have to take the second path from the
right. Follow it all the way around to see two evil Navis communing. Talk
to the one who is selling it and he realises MegaMan is the same Navi he
saw before. He sends some viruses at you...

HardHead2, HardHead2, FullFire

Powered up versions of their former selves. The FullFire should cause barely
any problems. Quickly eliminate the two HardHeads, swords will work
wonders as they are just in the enemy area border. After he is defeated, the
Navi hands back your Passport and jacks out. The other evil Navi won't do
anything, so ignore him. Even though MegaMan says to go back to Jim, there's
something to take care of. Go through the warp point near the evil Navi.
Follow the path where you emerge up and around to a sign. Don't go
there just yet, instead keep heading straight past the sign. Get the BMD
past here that is a HPMemory.

MegaMan HP 540

Return to the sign and head up the ramp towards the... Dun Dun Dun - Undernet.
You'll see yet ANOTHER PMD as you emerge here containing a CannBall *. Keep
heading up and around the only path possible. At the next fork, heading
down leads back so go straight. Enter yet another warp point. From here, go
around and down both ramps. Keep going around the long but sole path. If
you keep going, you'll see a SecurityCube and beyond that a program blocking
the way to the Undernet. I'm just familiarising you with the area - you can't
advance any further so jack out.

Talk to good ol' Jim. He demands the Guard * after you say his advice helped.
You're in trouble if you haven't got one. But never fear! If you go back to
Netopia 3, sometimes there happens to be a GMD near the Undernet entrance
(the dead end near the PMD, if you can recall) that has a Guard * in it.
I also took a bit of time to purchase from the Netdealer in NetSquare.

MegaMan HP 560

Jack out once you've got the Guard * and give it to Jim. He says that there
is a rumor going around that a millionaire madam bought some rare chips.
He says that because she is rich, you can figure out where she is. Yes,
indeed we can. Go to Netopia Town and go to the far west of town. Here,
enter the Jewelry Shop. You'll find out if you ask around that this
"millionaire madam" is Mrs. Millions. She's this store's best customer and
is in the VIP section in the back. Go there and ignore the man there, he's
just a thug. Talk to her and select 'Give me my chips!' and she will say
that she purchased your chips for a massive 500000G. If you can beat her
SnakeMan, she will return your chips to you. Accept her challenge.

>> BOSS: SNAKEMAN <<
HP 600
Element: Wood
Weakness: Heat

Machine-gun Fire: SnakeMan fires some weird needles at you like a gun at
rapid speed from his hand. Dodge quickly.

Snake: SnakeMan constantly summons snakes that appear in certain rows from
the empty row in his area. Anticipate their movement and location and dodge
as necessary. If not, destroy them accordingly.

Viper Strike: SnakeMan lunges at MegaMan and tries to bite him. Dodge it.

SnakeMan is a very unique Navi because he is the most cowardly Navi that
ever existed. He hides in an impenetrable vase until you are not in the same
row as him and assaults you that way. Easiest way to take him down? Indirect
attacks, or fast hits from standard guns. Swords, especially LifeSword1 can
hit him hard. I just hit him with Gater :) Once SnakeMan is defeated, Mrs.
Millions gives you your chips back (your entire Pack), MiliCode AND 10000Z.
So, you're basically recovered in everything that was stolen from you. Jack
into her handbag.

Go along the winding path, getting the BMD containing a Wood+40 * chip. Keep
going and exit through the warp point to Netopia 3, on the other side of
the SecurityCube near the Undernet. You guessed it, this is a nice handy
shortcut to the Undernet. Use MiliCode on Millions' SecurityCube and it will
vanish forever. Now, take the alternate path beside the entrance to Millions
Bag. Enter the next area. You're back in Yumland 2, on the other side of
the Mysterious SecurityCube here. Now you know what's on the other side...
Jack out.

There's nothing much left to do for the day. Go to the Netdealer and clean
him out if you can and you might like to try the Chip Trader Special. If
not, go back to your hotel. Go to bed and save.

viii. ONBA Meeting =(ONBMT)=
      ============
The next day, Lan actually wakes up early, ready for the ONB Meeting. Go
outside and as soon as you exit, you get an e-mail from the ONBA
explaining that you must find the location of the meeting for yourself.
Go to Netopia Castle. You'll see more people here than you would have
before (and less people everywhere else in Netopia, for that matter). If
you talk to the black woman, she says she already found the hidden passage
to the meeting area. Now, go to the back wall (the furthest wall away from
the entrance) and hug the wall where the golden insignia design is. You'll
find that Lan will go straight through the wall, into the secret meeting
room!

Talk to everyone there. Familiar faces include Chaud and Raoul. The two
new faces are the bulky blonde-haired man, Johnson. The blonde girl with
the fancy dress is Princess Pride, the princess of Creamland. After talking
to them all, the black woman arrives. Talk to her; she is Jennifer from
South Netopia. Once you've talked to her, the meeting begins. A Netopian
Official enters and welcomes everyone. Chaud and Johnson start fighting,
but besides that the meeting gets underway. The Official says that Gospel
is developing a Super Navi. It is the Ultimate Navi, that will be used to
conquer both the real and Cyber worlds. It cannot be stopped once it is
completed, so Gospel must be stopped before it has made the Super Navi. The
Official says that they have some information to stop them and is about to
show them something on the screen when nothing appears. Suddenly, everyone
falls down some trapdoor holes that appeared from seemingly nowhere.

Lan wakes up from being unconscious because of MegaMan. You're in some
kind of dungeon; MegaMan suggests they are in some underground room in the
Castle. As soon as Lan stands up, the Official phones to check everyone is
OK. He says that the Meeting was discovered by Gospel. Some Netbattlers were
used to hinder them and the data to stop the Super Navi was stolen. The
Netbattlers have hacked the Intruder Repel System and activated traps in the
castles, intent on killing all the netbattlers that are at the meeting!
Suddenly, something happens to the Official and the phone hangs up. The
Netbattlers at the meeting agree to stay together. With that, you gain
control of Lan. Move to the next room.

As Lan proceeds forward, an arrow shoots past him. It's one of the traps!
MegaMan tells Lan that he can jack in and disable the trap. Go to the old
green lamp switch and jack in.

In Castle Comp1... The program next to you warns you about cracks in battle
terrain. Proceed up the path and go past all the programs that warn you
about zombies and vampires. As you head down past the last one, a vampire
appears. Run straight, past the fork to the left and around. You'll see a
barrier that requires a CyberKey to open. Go past it and around the bend.
Go down the left path and get the BMD containing a CyberKey. Keep going
around and collect another BMD containing 1000Z. Go all the way around and
return to the barrier. Walk up to it and it will disappear. Go past the
program nearby that warns you of a 'ghost' virus that can only be cut down
by the strongest attacks. This virus is the Shadow and it can only be hit
by swords. Keep going onwards and you'll see a program in a gravestone site.
Go past it and you'll see another program that gives you another hint about
ghosts. Past the program is a dead end, so head up. As the zombie appears
behind you, run quickly around the corner and turn right. If the ghost
catches you, you'll return to the gravestone site. Head down and to the
right to collect a BMD with a CyberKey. Rush down and around, PAST the
barrier and go up. You'll have a close call with a zombie here. At the fork,
go UP and into a dead end with a BMD that contains a HPMemory.

MegaMan HP 580

After the coast is clear, head down and past the barrier. Examine the gear
with a switch. It's the program that controls the traps. MegaMan stops it.
Jack out. Now that the trap is gone, proceed past the Arrow Room into the
next room. As you go there, you get a phone call from Johnson. He says that
the others should press on without him because he was caught by a trap. The
phone hangs up... Go on to the next room.

The doors to exit the room become locked. The ceiling is collapsing! Pride
is also in the room. She says that the trap is the same one that got Johnson.
Lan says to jack into the green switch next to the door. Pride says KnightMan
was injured opening a trap. Go to the switch and jack in.

From here, go straight and on your left you'll see a program at a gravestone
site. He says crucial information about vampires and zombies. Zombies DO NOT
check branches in paths, but vampires DO. VERY important. Head past him.
From here, a zombie immediately appears behind you. Rush all the way around
the corner and go into the branch. A vampire will greet you, but better him
than the zombie. You'll lose a bit of HP. Get the BMD in this dead end
containing a Repair C. From here, when you are heading back ANOTHER
vampire appears. As the coast is clear, rush all the way around on the path
you were before. As you see a path turning right (it takes a while,
around winding paths) head into it for a dead end which serves as salvation.
Vampires do craploads of damage, so use Subchips if you want. Once you're
ready, head back around the dead end and continue along the winding path.
Watch out for the zombie... At the next fork, going right leads to a barrier
we cannot pass. Instead, continue up, using the other path as a sanctum.
Get the BMD in the dead end containing a CyberKey. Return to the other
path in the fork and open the barrier. Another program warns you about
bandits that STEAL YOUR MONEY. But don't panic, if you get robbed you can
get your money back. The most important thing to remember is not to get
caught by the zombies. Head up at the fork and another program tells you
that bandits always TURN LEFT. Important information again. Go left and get
the BMD in the dead end containing a FullEnrg. Go back to the first fork
when you went past the barrier and go right. As you do, a bandit appears.
At the next fork, he heads left SO DON'T GO THERE! There is nothing there.
While you have extra time, go past it and around the corner. At the next
fork, going right leads to a dead end so straight on. At the next fork
in the winding path, go right and collect the BMD containing a CyberKey.
Backtrack to the fork and head straight on. Keep going and at the fork,
turn right to get another BMD containing a Sword S. Now, go back to the
main path and continue. At the next final fork, go down the right if you
got stolen from to collect a BMD containing your money (in a safe area).
After that or if you weren't stolen from, go left and open the barrier.
Examine the gear and switch and MegaMan stops the control program. Jack out.
The pathway to the left of the room has opened up. Pride says that she is
staying to search for her favourite battlechip or something. Go into the
next room.

As soon as you start going up the stairs, the door behind becomes locked and
Lan gets a phone call from Pride. Pride is fighting the Gospel Navi and she
cannot hear Lan and the others. She loses and KnightMan is deleted. Pride
screams and a crash can be heard. The phone hangs up. Lan is about to head
back when Chaud said that all the NetBattlers must search for the Gospel
operative together before any other casualties are obtained. Go up the three
sets of stairs and you can see Jennifer lying down nearby. Talk to her. She
says that the Gospel operative tricked the NetBattlers and that they are
among the main group... She cannot say anymore, so head through the door.

As Lan enters, a wall of flame surrounds him. He cannot even access the
green switch to jack in. Suddenly, Lan remembers Mayl giving him the
Wireless. Using it, he can jack in - so do so.

As you go along the first path, a bandit appears behind you. Let him steal
from you, we can retrieve the money later. At this first fork, go right
and around. At the first turn, go there and get the BMD containing a
SubMem; the first one in the game. Head back to the path on the right and
keep going down. A vampire appears behind you, so beware. Collect the BMD
at the bottom containing a CyberKey. Head around the path and keep going
straight; the right path leads back. Go to the barrier on the left and open
it. From here, the path veering away from the main path is a dead end, so
go straight. As you do so, Lan gets yet ANOTHER call. This time, it's
Raoul who got pwned by Gospel. MegaMan reasons out that only Lan and Chaud
are left. Which means... Chaud is the Gospel spy! Both Lan and MegaMan cannot
believe it. With that, you regain control over MegaMan. Head straight and
past the gravestone site. At the corner, start running because BOTH a
zombie and a bandit will be appearing behind you. At the first turn on
your left, go there. Get the BMD here containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan HP 580 25MB (Half way to complete MB)

From here, as the coast becomes clear go straight down the main path. Over
to the right is just a big circle designed to screw you over. Keep going down
and all the way around past the dead end. A vampire appears behind you. As
you charge forward, another bandit appears and steals from you. ON TOP of
that, a zombie appears, so head to the dead end for refuge. Now, once he
goes past you, go past and stay on the main path. Keep going and at the
big fork, go left. Get the BMD here as you head around that contains a
CyberKey. Head up and you'll realise that the other way just came to a
circle anyway. Go up and at the next fork head right to get a BMD that
contains 1200Z. The left leads to a dead end, so go straight and to the
right is a safe area where your stolen money is. Keep heading up and open
the barrier. Go to the gear and switch and do standard protocol. After that,
jack out.

Head into the next room. You'll see Raoul in the top right corner, toasted.
Talk to him and as he is about to speak, Chaud emerges from the opposite door
that you came from. He believes that YOU are the Gospel spy! Lan wonders who
the Gospel spy is IF BOTH HIM AND CHAUD ARE NOT THE SPIES! Chaud immediately
jumps to the conclusion that Lan is the Gospel spy. He says that he will
arrest him and sends ProtoMan to delete MegaMan!

>> BOSS: PROTOMAN <<
800HP
Wide Sword: ProtoMan appears in the panel in front of MegaMan and swipes for
massive damage. Dodge.

Long Sword: ProtoMan appears in the same row as MegaMan (if he is in range)
and swipes for massive damage. Dodge.

Sonic Boom: ProtoMan swipes his sword, cutting the air and generating a
wave that travels towards MegaMan, covering two rows in width. Dodge.

ProtoMan is a very predictable Navi, but the problem is that he attacks
repetitively, consecutively, quickly and with very powerful blows. His
sword attacks cannot be taken lightly; if his blows connect you will be
punished. A strategy I recommend is to use fast chips and your own swords if
possible. Once he attacks once, if you have an Aqua Style, charge (Aqua
increases the time of charge) for 1 second and punish him when he misses you.
Very effective strategy. Or, be like me and wait for Gater :P

Once Chaud is defeated, he is speechless. He says that he lost because he
was weak and all that tough-guy crap. Suddenly, Raoul wakes up. He says that
neither Chaud nor Lan are from Gospel and that they were fooled by "her".
She was never hurt. Chaud and Lan reconcile and apologise. Chaud says that
he is now useless because ProtoMan is deleted and that he will look after
Raoul while Lan goes up to the final room and defeats the Gospel agent. With
that, you gain control over Lan.

* I got my second Style Change at this point, just a note that you can have
up to two styles in MegaMan's memory that are completely upgraded.

Go up to the next room, up the stairs and into the final room.

Lan sees Princess Pride staring at some big monitor. After a brief chat where
she reveals her true allegiance to Gospel, she admits that she is somewhat
surprised that Chaud didn't show up. She asks Lan how he plans to beat her
when the floor is going to give way. Lan uses his Wireless again to reach
the terminal to jack in. You regain control over Lan as the floor is
rumbling. Jack in.

This is it, the final group of puzzles before you must face the boss. Head
forward and go right at the fork. Keep going right at the next forks and
grab the BMD at the dead end containing a LongSwrd L. A vampire might be
behind you, so beware. In this fork, on the left side is a barrier. Backtrack
down to the beginning and this time go left. At the next fork, the right
leads to a double-pronged dead end, so go left. Here, go straight up and
get the BMD with a CyberKey. Another vampire comes along and sucks your HP.
Backtrack to the beginning a second time and make your way up the right
path all the way to the barrier. Unlock it and quickly head around the
corner to avoid two more vampires. Around the bend, you'll see a familiar
gravestone site. Go forward on the main path and a zombie appears behind you.
Quickly head forward and at the fork go straight down. Once the zombie
disappears (take refuge BEHIND the little dead end down and to the left) go
back up and to the right. Head all the way around and a bandit appears behind
you and steals off you. At the next fork, going right results in another
zombie appearing, so stay on the main path. At the next fork, go right
and at one of the prongs in the path (the one on the left) get the BMD
containing a FullEnrg. Return to the main path when the coast is clear
and continue in the direction you were heading in before. At the next fork,
go right, taking care to avoid two zombies and a vampire. Make sure that
you take refuge in the dead end straight to the left. Continue around to
yet another fork. Go straight ahead and get the BMD containing a BugFrag.
Proceed to your right and straight across; the fork heading up leads back.
At this next fork, go left and get the BMD in the dead end containing a
CyberKey. Go right now and at the next fork go straight down BEFORE a
bandit appears. Get the BMD here in this dead end containing a handy
PowerUP.

MegaMan HP 580 LVL 59 Attack 4 Rapid 1 Charge 5

Go up after the bandit has left and open the barrier. There's also a zombie
to watch out for... After the barrier, continue along the main path to
Castle Comp5.

Go straight and at the fork start off going left and around the winding
path. You'll notice the design of this particular puzzle is a winding
path; one smaller than the other forming a concentric pattern. Anyway, head
go left and around past the barrier. Keep going down and stay in this
path. On the left side, you'll see a BMD containing a FullEnrg. You might
just need it. A bandit may steal from you, but no matter. Backtrack to
where you saw the path enter the inside path to the right. Go left from this
inside path and at the top you should find the entry to the innermost
path. Go here and collect the BMD from here that contains a CyberKey. Now,
trying NOT TO GET CAUGHT navigate your way around the winding paths until
you're back to the beginning. Veer off to your right and open the barrier.
Continue straight and to your left at the next corner you'll see a gravestone
site. Go right and at the next bend, go up to get a BMD that has a Recov120
U. More money will get stolen off you by a bandit. Again, I stress to not
worry. Once the zombie has disappeared from the main path, return to it
and go down. Keep heading straight past the right fork; that leads to
a dead end so that vampires can trap you. At the next circular path, head
around it and dodge the vampire. Another circular path loops into the first;
go past it avoiding the zombie. Head down to the left of the second circular
path and collect the BMD in the dead here that contains an Invis2 Q. Go
back to the circular path and head right. Go all the way down when you can
to stay on the main path. At the next fork, one the left you will notice
the safe area with your stolen cash as well as the barrier. But first, veer
off to the right, avoiding the vampires. Head up and this little dead end
you can see a BMD. A zombie appears right in front of you! Go to the
dead end right in front of you and the zombie unexpectedly turns. Get the
BMD he was guarding once he is away from this little area containing a
CyberKey. Navigate around back to the fork, avoiding the zombie (use the
dead end). Open the barrier and retrieve your stolen money. Save and
prepare for a boss battle (I recommend using a FullEnrg).

MegaMan confronts KnightMan at the dead end here. KnightMan must fight
MegaMan for Pride. MegaMan says that no good can come fron what he is doing.
Pride disagrees, saying that it will help Creamland. KnightMan is doubtful,
but tells MegaMan he MUST obey Pride because he is her Net Navi. With that,
he battles you even if he is a good Navi, because his operator is evil.
Loyal to the end... Just like any good knight.

>> BOSS: KNIGHTMAN <<
800HP
Royal Wrecking Ball: KnightMan sends a morning star down one row to hit
MegaMan. Dodge before it deals massive damage.

Stone Body: KnightMan turns to stone for a long time until he attacks. Hit
him when he is attacking to deal damage. If you hit him in Stone form, any
attack will do 1 damage only.

Royal Rampage: KnightMan summons rocks to shower down on MegaMan's area. Dodge
by using their shadows.

Stomp: KnightMan jumps one row forward from his area. All panels crack.

KnightMan is incredibly slow, but quite powerful. He is however, quite easy
compared to ProtoMan. His Stone Body is easy to counter. Just hit him at
the right time and he will die quickly.

Pride cannot believe KnightMan was defeated. MegaMan turns off the trap
mechanism. Pride laughs, claiming that even then she can control the traps.
However, she falls into a trapdoor hole like you did at the beginning.

The scene switches to the main area of the Castle, with the Official thanking
both Lan and Chaud. He says that everyone is alright, even Pride. Chaud
narrates the story of Creamland; how it was one of the first countries to
go on the Net and become powerful. But also, how it was left behind after
the other countries caught up. The tiny country remained tiny at the end and
Chaud postulates that Pride joined Gospel to gain revenge. After that, he
still maintains Pride was wrong but he believes Gospel is the real enemy.
Lan agrees, but is concerned that ProtoMan was deleted. Chaud says that there
is no concern for him because ProtoMan can be remade, since Chaud made him in
the first place. Lan cannot believe it, but Chaud simply says that this should
NOT make Lan happy, as it means that ProtoMan and him will return to kick
MegaMan. Lan gets angry, but then realises that they should focus on Gospel.
The scene fades out.

ix. Aerial Assault = (ARATK)
    ==============
Lan and MegaMan wake up the next day ready to return home to Electopia. After
a brief chat about their ventures and how the whole family should have come,
they realise that they should be heading to the airport. With that, Lan
resumes his adventure controlled by the player. Now, go outside and head left
until you see a black guy with sunnies (similar to the thief who took your
chips). Talk to him and say that you'll purchase his souvenirs. Buy the Broach
for 1000Z, RoboX for 1000Z, and GoldRing for 1000Z. Now, go to the Underground.
You'll see that it is now near empty, save for Jim, a white guy, a black
guy and Raoul. The white guy wants a PopUp D for his Blower P. We don't have
that yet... Talk to Raoul and challenge his ThunderManV2. He has a massive
1000HP, but he still can't match Gater. He'll give you a ThunderMan T for
your efforts. Now go to the Jewelry Shop. Talk to Mrs. Millions and challenge
her SnakeManV2. He has 900HP. Once again, cream him with Gater. You'll get
a SnakeMan S chip. Now go to the Netopia Castle Meeting Area. Talk to the
Official looking at the wide screen and he'll give you ONBACode. You can now
traverse between Netopia and Den Area via the Net! Now, go all the way back
to the Underground. From Raoul's Radio, go to the Net. Go to Netopia 1 by
heading backwards and go to Den Area 3. From here, open the SecurityCube that
leads to the familiar crossroads with Yumland. Jack out and jack in again. Go
all the way to NetSquare and go to the bottom floor. Talk to the purple Navi
and give him a Hammer Z in exchange for a SilvFist V. Now, go the the
resident Netdealer and pay 10000Z for a Jealosy J. You'll find out why soon
enough. Jack out. You're now officially done with Netopia for the most part,
go to the sign in Netopia Park and wait for the bus. Go to the departure
lobby.

From here, talk to Chaud and accept his challenge facing ProtoManV2. He has
1200HP and is quicker and more lethal than ever before. Finish him quickly
with Gater or something. He uses Sonic Boom more often to confuse you, but
he'll go down easily. Your reward is a ProtoMan B chip. You're now done in
this little area, so go past the counter and the ticket machine. Talk to
the man at the counter and tell him your name and where you are going again.
Go through to the next area.

You'll see a lot of strange people around, most of them you will see again.
There isn't much point talking to them anyway. Go to the Duty-Free Shop and
jack into the PC. If you go to the top left, you'll see a BMD containing a
Lance P. But wait... We're not done yet. Remember Jealosy? Preset it and
place it in your folder. Find a Puffball. Use Jealosy immediately. If the
enemies aren't destroyed, escape; because this isn't what we are after. If
the enemies both are destroyed AND the Puffball was targeted (in the case
of multiple enemies) AND you managed an S rank, you will get a PoisMask S.
YES! The fabled chip we need to give that accursed boy in Marine Harbor
Station. Confused of my requirements? I'll explain. If you read Jealosy's
description, it says it deals more damage if the enemy has a chip. The
requirements to get a PoisMask S are to S rank a Puffball. Jealosy doesn't
OHKO on enemies without chips, so that's why you would have been screwed had
you continued the battle where Jealosy failed. You're more likely to end up
with a PoisMask W. Anyway, after this jack out. Go through the big exit.

Lan reminisces about Netopia and dreams about everyone's reaction. Of
particular interest is Mayl, who Lan dreams has missed him terribly and hugs
him, promising never to part from him again. Aww... Young love. *cough*
Shame it's all a dream. The captain announces that the plane will reach
Den Airport at 7:45PM. Lan is sleeptalking and MegaMan wakes him up, laughing
at Lan mumbling about Mayl. Lan gets annoyed, but MegaMan assures him that he
will not reveal his secret. Well, Lan's awake and the duo decide to take a
trip to the #######. With that, the player resumes control of Lan in Economy
Class.

Talk to the Netopian blonde next to you and for your social kindness, he gives
you a Repair L. Not bad. No one here is too interesting, except you'll
recognise the grey-haired boy from the Netopia Departure Lobby working on
his laptop. He isn't going to say anything now either. To the back is the
lavatory and the crew room, but they're not interesting. Jack into the
monitor next to the entrance to the back of the plane. Go to the middle of
the area and get the BMD containing a BugFrag. Strangely enough, the purple
Navi is a Subchipdealer.

Airplane Subchipdealer
MiniEnrg	50
FullEnrg	400
SneakRun	200

Meh... Jack out. Head to the front and into the next area.

You're now in the Business Class section. Go over to the curtains and examine
it (right at the entrance) for a HPMemory.

MegaMan 600HP LVL 60

Besides that, there's nothing here except for the old man in a suit from the
Netopian Airport Departure Lobby. He's the President of Gauss Inc. Not
really interesting apart from trivia. Keep heading forward in the airplane to
the front.

Now you're in the First Class section. There's absolutely nothing interesting
here except for a Retro Chip Trader near the curtains to the far right as
soon as you enter. Keep going to the very front of the airplane.

You're in the #######. Talk to the pilot with glasses and Lan asks him if he
can take a look around. Suddenly, the plane hits an air pocket. The pilot asks
Lan to sit down. The duo return to their seats. The screen fades out.

The female assistant says that the worst seems to be over. Lan and MegaMan
decide to look around until lunch. Go to Business class and talk to the
guy on the seat to the far right as you come in. He's the muscly guy with a
green shirt. He says that he is Dr. Iron Fist and proves it by giving you a
SilvFist E. You should also note that the Gauss President seems to be strange.
Go to First Class and talk to the hairy man near the whisky storage place
(near the black guy at the front of the section). MegaMan says its time for
lunch. Lan eats too much for lunch and the player regains control over Lan.
The lavatory is at the back, so that's where we need to go. Head to the back.
Examine the lavatory door and a cutscene takes place.

Two crew members are exiting the Crew Room and they discuss something about a
big spider running around on the loose. Lan and MegaMan try to find a bug
expert. It happens to be that bearded man you talked to earlier... The one
from the Netopian World Bug Synopsium. He's in his seat now, just in front of
Dr. Iron Fist. Talk to him and he recognises the spider from Lan's description
immediately as the red-eyed wooly spider. It's also incredibly poisonous...
At that point, someone screams from the back of the airplane. Lan and
MegaMan fear the worst. You'll regain control of Lan... Go to the back of the
plane. You see a female attendant walking around and you see an Official on
the ground. Lan asks what happened and the man says a spider bit him. He
says he'll go get help, so go to Dr. Iron Fist. Talk to him and return to the
Crew Room. Dr. Iron Fist arrives behind Lan and treats the victim. After
that, they discuss the poisonous spider on the plane. Iron Fist says not to
alert everyone to the spider or there will be mass panic, so that's that.
Lan says he will go to the bug expert. Go to Business class and he's right
in front of the monitor, near where you enter. Talk to him and Lan explains
the situation that a red-eyed wooly spider is on the loose. He says he can
make a trap, but he won't tell Lan what it is yet. The necessary materials
are; some kind of box, a stick, some string and whiskey. So that's what
we need.

Go all the way to the Cockpit at the front of the plane. Next to the entrance,
there is a yellow hatch and a pilot's hat on it. Examine it and you'll get
PilotCap. You have the 'box' item now.

Go to First Class and talk to the funky black guy. He'll give some of his
whiskey to you if you can sing along with him. He sings in this order:

1.2.123 YO!
Chicky-chick BABY!
Make me go KABOOM!
Can ya digit LADY!
Oh my Lovefire!
Comin' to ya SOON!

He asks you to repeat it from memory. The options are:

Flicky-flick BABY!
Chicky-chick BABY! <- Correct
Nicky-nick MAYBE!

Make me go KABOOM! <- Correct
Make my messy ROOM
Please be my GROOM

Can ya ribit LADY!
Can ya digit BABY!
Can ya digit LADY! <- Correct

Oh my lovely fire!
Oh my lively fire!
Oh my Lovefire! <- Correct

Comin' to ya SOON! <- Correct
Comin' soon to YA!
Comin' for ya SOON

If you get his strange lyrics right he gives you Whiskey. You have the
whiskey, so now you need some string and a stick.

Go to Economy Class and in the row you sit at, go to the far right where an
old lady sits. Talk to her. After her story about chopsticks, her husband
and Netopia, she gives you Chopstck (not spelling mistake!). We now need
string.

Go to the back of the plane and talk to the attendant there. She gives you
Thread. Now, return to the bug expert. Talk to him and then a woman screams
and says the spider went to First Class. Follow the bug expert as he goes
there. In First Class, he alerts everyone to the new danger. The scene
switches to where he has set the trap and everyone is watching it. Slowly
but surely the spider approaches and is lured to the trap. Afterwards,
everyone rejoices.

A few hours after the capture of the poisonous spider, Lan is asleep. The
attendant is announcing the plane is on schedule to land when the plane
starts shaking. The co-pilot tells the captain that a bug has entered the
plane's system. The captain tells him to alert the Netbattler, but the
co-pilot adds that he was bitten by a spider. The attendant requests that
any Netbattlers approach the Cockpit. With that, the player controls Lan.
Go to the Cockpit and talk to the captain pilot. Lan explains that he is a
City Netbattler. The captain debriefs Lan on the situation and says that
they will crash if they don't respond. Lan jacks in. As soon as MegaMan is
in, he starts feeling a magnetic force. With that, you gain control over
MegaMan yet again, for another long journey to solving another crisis.

Welcome to Air Comp1... I dread this part of the guide, because this is
probably the most annoying scenario in the game. Anyway, go forward. You'll
see you have arrived at a fork and you can see a blue and red dotted line
conveyour belt outline. These are magnetic fields. Blue allows you to go
down one way, red the other way. For now, go left and enter the blue
magnetic field to be whooshed down. Go past the green program and to the right.
Keep going until you see another blue magnetic field. Use it to head down.
From here, head right past the red magnetic field (which leads back) and
keep going around the corner to arrive at a small circular area that reads
NAL. Go left from here (because down leads to an unpassable red magnetic
field) and keep heading straight. Ignore the blue magnetic field for now,
just head up and around the corner and get the BMD containing 800Z. Now,
backtrack to the blue magnetic field and use it. Go across to the right and
you can see an unreachable BMD. You're on the other side of the red
magnetic field you encountered earlier and down to your left is an orange
circular panel with a plane insignia on it. Stand on it to be teleported to
a green panel on a yellow path. Follow the yellow path around the corner
and take the next green teleporter. You're back at yet another orange
teleporter on a blue path. Follow the blue path and you'll see a program that
tells you about the manual de-magnetizers that you need to activate. Keep
following the path into another blue magnetic field. Follow the path to
another circular area with a NAL sign on it. Go left (because right leads to
a blue magnetic field which cannot be bypassed this way) and at the first
fork go down. When you see another fork with two red magnetic fields, take
the left one first. Go forward onto the tyred area and retrieve a BMD
containing 3000Z. Take the blue magnetic field to your left down and make
your way all the way around back to the fork. Now, take the right path in
the fork. You can see a fork. Take the middle path and head left around the
corner. Keep staying on this path, heading all the way to an additional
tyred area with a blue console on it. Examine it to actuate the blue
de-magnitizer. Now the blue magnetic fields in this area (Air Comp1) are
removed. Now, head left and go left again, ignoring the red magnetic field.
In this corner you'll see a BMD containing a FullEnrg. Now, go back to
the red magnetic field and take it all the way back to the NAL platform.
From here, backtrack to where you teleported here (go up from the NAL place)
and take the first fork veering to your left. A program here says that the
right wing program is just beyond here. Go past him directly into the red
magnetic field. From here, follow the path all the way to a fork. Take the
path veering to the far right and at the dead end you'll get a BMD containing
a GrassLne N. Backtrack to the fork and since the red field is unpassable, go
to the far left and follow the path around to reach the other side of the
magnetic field. Now, at the fork go down and take another red magnetic field
and walk around the corner to another tyred area with the red de-magnetizer.
Make MegaMan actuate it and start heading right. Keep going right, past all
the (now empty) bends. Return to the program that told you the right
program is near it and take the now accessible path to the left into a new
tyred area. Examine the right wing program. MegaMan will fix the bug.

Everything seems to run smoothly, until the co-pilot says that the pilot
program isn't working properly. This pattern of malfunctioning programs will
happen again and again... Boring. Lan asks MegaMan to check the piloting
program. So that's where we are heading now.

Go to the path you haven't been to before (the one that leads to the left)
and take the orange teleporter. In this small yellow path, take the next
green teleporter. Proceed down the blue path into a big tyred area. In
case you didn't know, you're in Air Comp4. I know, I know. We're jumping
around quite a bit. Take the first red field to your right and head down,
past the blue field that takes you back. At the next fork, the red field
is inaccessible. Go right (the path OPPOSITE the blue field) and at this
little fork, head up for a BMD containing 900Z. Now, return to the fork and
enter the blue field. From here, go right and collect the BMD at the dead
end that has a RegUP2.

MegaMan 600HP 27MB

Return to the fork and take the red field you see directly up (the other red
field leads backwards). You'll be pushed back to the big tyre area. From here,
go left and when you see the green program that tells you the tail engine
program is nearby, take the blue field next to him. From here, follow the
path (ignore the red field for now) and get the BMD containing a LilBomb *.
Return to the red magnetic field and pass through it. At the next fork,
go left, because straight down this path leads to the big tyred area again.
Take the blue field you see. From here, take the winding path around to
another fork. Take the fork leading left to be greeted with a tyred area and
the red de-magnetizer. Actuate it and return to the fork. From here, take
the alternate path and follow it to a tyred area containing a BMD with a
HPMemory.

MegaMan 620HP LVL 61

Now, take the unblocked path right to the big tyred area. Now, go right again
(the way opposite the program who tells you where the program is). Take
the path closest to the entrance to this area to the right. At the next
fork, go straight up and you'll see another tyred area with a blue
de-magnetizer. Actuate it. Backtrack to the big tyred area and return to
the guide program. Head past it along the path and take the first turn right
to yet another tyred area with the tail engine program. Examine it so that
MegaMan can fix the bugs in it.

The scene snaps back to Lan. As soon as that problem is fixed, the co-pilot
says that cabin pressure is going down! Everyone will die of altitude
sickness. Lan orders MegaMan to attend to the pressure program.

Head along the only path that you haven't been to past the tail engine
program. Take the orange teleporter. You've been warped to the yellow
path again. Follow it around and take the green teleporter. Take yet
another yellow path to the fork. This is Air Comp5. We're getting closer to
the end... Take the only path possible to the right. At the tyre area, take
the BMD containing a Barrier L. To your left is the guide program,
explaining that the air pressure program is just beyond it. Head up past the
red field and take the BMD as you go around that contains 1800Z. Return via
the blue field. Now, go left and take the first red field you see. Take the
stairs down to another tyred area. From here, go right at the fork and you
will see three blue fields that you can take at a three-pronged fork. Take the
path furthest away from you. The other two lead to dead ends... You'll be
pushed into a tyred area with the blue de-magnetizer. Actuate it. Now,
return all the way to the fork with the previous tyred area. This time
go left and go left at the next fork up the stairs. Go far to the right and
actuate the red de-magnetizer in the tyred area you see. Take the path
left (not back) around the yellow path and keep following it. Head past an
empty tyred area and keep going. At the first fork, keep following the path
to a BMD in a dead end containing 1000Z. Backtrack to the fork and go right.
From here, take the path leading to your right that is below where you came
from. Take the first turn you see to a tyred area with a BMD containing a
Recov120 S. Now, keep going all the way right and you'll be back at the
beginning of this area. Go right past the guide program and take the first
turn to the right. Go to the familiar tyred area and examine the air
pressure program.

Again, it's back to Lan in the Cockpit. Suddenly, the captain says that the
throttle isn't responding. They're going to crash! Lan orders MegaMan to
check the throttle program quickly.

Take the yellow path that you haven't taken yet and take the green teleporter.
From here, follow the path and enter yet another green teleporter. Again,
follow the path and you'll find you're back in Air Comp1. At the fork, take
the red field leading up. Get the BMD around the path containing a RockCube *.
Return via the blue field to the fork and this time head right and down the
stairs. You're in a big tyred area. Heading down leads to a dead end, so
instead head up to the left. Take the winding path around to another fork.
Go left, because down is inaccessible. At the next fork, left is your only
option. Ignore the red field as you go past and get the BMD in the dead end
containing 2000Z more. Go back to the red field and pass it. Follow the
path to the red de-magnetizer. Actuate it. Take the blue field back down and
at the next fork go right. Take the path leading down and follow it to
the blue de-magnetizer. Actuate it. We're almost there! From here, backtrack
to the fork and at the first turn head up back to the tyred area. Keep
staying on this path to see another guide program. Go past him and at the
fork head left and collect the BMD in the dead end containing a Spice2 N.
Now follow this path all the way to the far right to find another BMD
containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan 620HP 28MB

Now, return to the middle path and go down to the throttle program. Examine it.

The scene snaps back to Lan and co. again. They are now 5 minutes from Den
Airport! Everything seems fine. Suddenly, the co-pilot reports that the
landing gear control program is malfunctioning. Blast it!

Now, go down the blue path that you didn't go to before. Take the orange
teleporter. Now, this is Air Comp2... The final area of this crisis. Take
the blue magnetic field. Take the next field and you'll go a long way down,
catching a glimpse of the landing gear control program and a Navi guarding it!
I smell Gospel... There's a triple fork here. Take the blue field fork to
the left and around the corner. Keep following the path and underneath the
hidden area (you cannot see under the yellow pathway of the above floor)
examine it for a BugFrag. Keep going and take the middle path north. Use
the red field to go right and be met with a fork. Head to the far right
and collect the BMD at the dead end containing 1500Z. Now, take the only
path down a blue magnetic field. Go directly left from here to get
*another* BMD containing a HPMemory.

MegaMan 640HP LVL 62

Now, head right and actuate the blue de-magnetizer here. Now, go up again
(to your right) and take the left fork (essentially, backtracking). From
here, keep following the path all the way around past the red magnetic
field to the beginning (yes, it's quite a long way around). Now, go right.
From here, follow the long winding path until you see a fork. Head down
and to the left, bypassing all the red fields you see. At the next fork,
head right, going around a previous red field. Take the red field
leading up and actuate the red de-magnetizer. Now we're REALLY nearly done.
Go down and along the winding paths, keep heading down. Now, go right
at the bottom of the area and collect the BMD at the dead end containing a
HiCannon E. Now, follow the path left and ignore the way you came from.
Instead, take the next path along the path you're on to the right and keep
going straight along past a fork. At the second fork, head right and around
to a little dead end where a BMD is. This is right next to the red
de-magnetizer and it contains 500Z. Now, backtrack to the fork and this
time go straight up (continue following the initial path you took). Keep
going until you can see the red de-magnetizer to your right on a lower
level (this is just near the far right corner of the area). Now, take the
fork you can see leading left and at the next fork, go left. The Navi
you can see is close... Go around the corner and take the first turn right to
see another guide program. Save and get ready for another boss battle. Keep
walking past the program and MegaMan shall confront the Navi, a red big
guy that looks like a magnet (no wonder...). The Navi says he came for a
HighPower program on this plane. The President of Gauss Inc. says that he
has it and that the completion of the Super Navi is soon... So Gauss is
involved with Gospel?! Lan asks him why and he explains how he hates
society (typical emo talk) and how Gospel shares his views. They will create
a new-found order of society. Lan says he won't let him and Gauss orders the
Navi, MagnetMan, to delete MegaMan...

>> BOSS: MAGNETMAN <<
HP 1000
Element: Electric
Weakness: Wood
Summon Magnet: MagnetMan uses two semi-homing magnets to attack MegaMan.
Sidestep and dodge around them. They take up one row and normally adopt a
pincer formation.

Black Hole: MagnetMan sends a floaty ball of darkness that moves slowly; it
paralyses MegaMan temporarily. It is homing, but it can be easily dodged
by sidestepping around them.

Magnet Tackle: MagnetMan creates an illusion of himself behind MagnetMan and
he and the illusion charge at MegaMan from around him (both sides),
sandwiching MegaMan.

MagnetMan is annoying for the sole reason that the central row is filled with
magnetic panels. They attract you to the centre and can work in your favour
(assisting in evading) or against you (paralysing you in a spot). He has a
significant amount of HP, too. Normally he uses his Black Hole and Summon
Magnet attacks in a combo. Wood Styles spell doom for him (Wood Twister
combined with Area Grab). It's all about endurance. Gater is good for some
easy damage as well.

MagnetMan is deleted and he apologises to Gauss. Gauss mumbles about his
highjack plans and other people on the plane get wind of it. They catch him
and apprehend him. After that, the pilot says everything is A-OK. The
captain thanks Lan and asks him to take a seat as they land. Lan makes
MegaMan jack out.

The scene switches to Lan seated and the attendant announcing that the plane
has arrived. You gain control of Lan again. Take the door nearby back to
Den Airport. The Electopian girl is nice, so she won't check your identity.
Take the stairs down. From here, talk to the man and show him your passport.
As you do so, MegaMan asks Lan to look. There's a little cutscene where
members of the plane surround and take Gauss away, to be locked up for a LONG
time. After that, keep going right and head down the familiar stairs. You're
back in the Airport Station! Welcome back to Electopia. Take the Metroline to
ACDC Town.

From here, go to Dex's house. Talk to Dex and give the fat guy his RoboX.
He'll in return give you a GutPunch D. Now go to Mayl's house and go upstairs.
Give Mayl the GoldRing and she will in return reward you with a Recov150 P.
Now, go to Yai's house. Go up to her room and give her the Broach for a nice
10000Z. Now, go back outside. See the brown house behind Lan's? There's a
boy behind it who is running very quickly. Talk to him (block his way) and
for finding him he will reward you with 20 Guard * chips. Not bad. Go to
Marine Harbor using the Metroline. Okuden has not changed at all, except
for the unusual fact that Chaud is at the Dam site, taking a vacation. Weird,
huh?

From Marine Harbor Station, talk to the boy at the station and give him his
much-waited for PoisMask S and he will in turn give you a VarSwrd B. Head
outside. You'll notice Ribitta is back in town, among other things. To
make things interesting, you will be interested to note that not only are
there some more requests to take on board, and the option to take the S
License Examination. First, go over to the request board in the License
Office.

Request: Detective job
Info:    Looking for someone. If you can help, come to ACDC Town. I'm
waiting in front of the squirrel.
Solving: Go to ACDC Town and head over to the Park. Head over to the man in
an office attire. He shows Lan a picture of a black guy with sunnies. When
you see him, he asks you to ask what he is doing. After that, he asks you to
report back to him. Go to the Metroline Station and go to Okuden.

Go all the way to the Dam and near Chaud you'll see him looking towards the
dam control center. Talk to him and he says he is sight-seeing. Go all the
way back to ACDC Town Park and report to the man. He says the guy you talked
to is wanted and dangerous. He'll reward you with a Twister Y. He then
reveals he is a detective (well, duh).

Return back to the request board. I skipped the 'Sell me a chip!' request for
later, the reason becomes clear as I tell you down the track.

Request: Help reconcile us
Info:    My Navi ran away because we argued the day before last. Can somebody
please find my Navi? I'm waiting at the ACDC Town station. please help (there
is a grammar error in the game here).
Solving: Head to ACDC Town Station. Talk to the boy in an orange shirt (looks
similar to the PoisMask S guy) on the far end of the Station, furthest from
the exit. He says basically all he said in the request, but says he has an
ALicense and may have wandered as far as Yumland. He's purple. Go to Lan's
PC and access the Net. Use the Warp point to go to YumSquare Entrance. Go
to YumSquare and take the winding path to the big yellow square area. There
is a purple Navi there, talk to him. He says that he is angry, but he
forgives his Operator because he cares enough to search for him. He says that
he will not be back for a while, since he thinks that his Operator relies on
him too much. He tells MegaMan to say that to his Operator. Jack out and
return to ACDC Station. Talk to the boy. Your reward is yet another handy
HPMemory.

MegaMan 660HP LVL 63

Go back to the request board again.

Request: Fight crime
Info: Recently, a nasty Navi has been making trouble. He picks fights with
ordinary Navis, and even uses viruses. Now he's after me, so I'm on the run.
Can you do something about this? I'm waiting in a telephone in some house,
somewhere.
Solving: Go to ACDC Town and go to Yai's house. Go upstairs and go to the
antique phone. Jack in. Head right (to the bottom right corner of the area)
and talk to the civilian Navi. After he asks for help, talk to the evil
Navi.

Shrimpy3, Popper, Popper

What can I say? Eliminate the Shrimpy quickly, as it is a nuisance. The
Poppers 'pop in' every now and again. Time your strikes right and they will
be easy to beat. The Popper viruses have a massive 300HP and use Wood Tower
attacks that are easy to dodge. Use their slow homing properties to lure the
attack to one side and easily evade it. After the evil Navi is deleted, talk
to the civilian. He will give you the ultra useful GospCode, that belonged to
the evil Navi. You can use this to open all those mysterious SecurityCubes.

But first, return to the request board for the last request you can do at
this point.

Request: Sell me a chip!
Info: I'm leaving the country on a trip & need a strong chip. Can someone sell
me a "Catcher N"? I'll pay in cash. I'm waiting at Den Airport.
Solving: In order to do this task, you'll first need a Catcher N. The virus
that drops it is the UFO and they are only accessible at this point in the
Air Comp.

If you have one already, that's good, but I didn't. You can't actually go to
the Airplane again just yet, so just ignore the request for now. Go to the
Den Airport anyway and jack into the Flight Board. Turn left (go to the
bottom left-ish corner of the area) and get the BMD containing a BugFrag.
Now, let's get our SLicense, shall we?

Jack out and return to the License Office (you can go down the stairs,
regardless of the direction the arrow points). The man at the counter says
that because of increased Net crime they are opening the gates to all
Netbattlers to encourage them to take Examinations to improve their skills.
Enter the familiar Test Room and jack in. Of trivial note, most of the other
losers around here have *finally* passed their dreaded exams.

Talk to the green examiner Navi. He says there is only one Problem; a
Survival test that consists of 10 battles. When you've saved and are ready,
talk again and talk the test.

Survival battle: No HP recovery permitted in between battles.
Battle 1 - Beetank, Beetank, WindBox
Eliminate the WindBox to clear some space. Dodge the Beetanks and take of
them.
Battle 2 - Swordy2, Flamey, MettFire
The Swordy is your immediate danger. The others are distractions. Take out
the MettFire last. Watch out for the bomb behind you!
Battle 3 - Mettaur2, Sparky, Spooky
The Sparky is your number one priority. Afterwards, the rest is not difficult.
The cracked panels aren't much of an issue.
Battle 4 - Puffball, Shellgeek, Mushy
The Puffball is your main threat and the others are distractions. You can
handle the situation by now, right?
Battle 5 - CanDevil, Dominerd, Shadow
Many strange enemies... Prioritise the Shadow and Dominerd first. Mr.
CanDevil is a distraction. Remember the Shadow is only weak to swords. Bait
the Dominerd and slice him up with an ElecSwrd or something. Cracks are
are bigger nuisance.
Battle 6 - Handy2, Handy2, Flappy2
Defeat the Handies first! Their bombs will piss you off. The Flappy will
follow suit. You should note Flappy2 will attack in a cross, so stay WELL
AWAY from him!
Battle 7 - Shrimpy3, Cloudy2, Null
You've never seen a Null before, right? Basically, it's an ass. It heals
after you hit it, making it your LAST goddamn priority. The other two
distractions are first. Beat the Null in a single blow. You should have those
kind of resources by now. By the way, every virus here is weak to electric
attacks. The ice will make it a tough battle.
Battle 8 - Yort, Yort, Beetank3
Another interesting virus you've never met before. Most of the viruses you
are tested against now will become commonplace later on. Anyway, the
Yorts are definitely a big problem, but so is the Beetank. Take the Yorts
out because they are in such close proximity to you and then take out the
Beetank. He's faster and more aggressive than other versions of Beetank, so
take care.
Battle 9 - Fishy, Fishy3, Fishy2
The Fishy is a nuisance itself, but the other two are some of the toughest
enemies in the game. Fishy2 will light up the row it travels across and the
Fishy3 is amazingly fast. Beat them all ASAP! Gater would be good right now...
Or, just focus on taking out the weaker Fishies and then eliminate the
last Fishy with little trouble. If you are severely damaged (not surprisingly)
take some time to dodge the last Fishy and heal like hell.
Battle 10 - Goofball, HardHead3, HardHead3
They will use AreaGrab and their Cannonballs to trap you and take you out with
hard-hitting attacks. The Puffball is definitely your first priority. The
HardHeads follow suit, just don't be surprised at the speed at which they
shoot at you... Don't be too surprised if you lose here, so close yet so
far.

Yes! You're done. You'll receive a well-earned SLicense. Congratulations! You
are now an Official (unofficially, of course...). You'll also get a RegUP1.

MegaMan 660HP 29MB

You'll find if you try *again* to get an SSLicense, you need a Star ID and
ArmyData. Don't know what that is? Don't worry. There's a long way to go yet
to get an SSLicense anyway. Jack out.

Well, we're just about done for today. Just about... Go home and talk to your
Mom. After that, you're ready to go to bed, but there *is* something you can
do. One last thing; using GospCode and purchasing a few additional upgrades.
You will have quite a lot of cash now. Jack into Lan's PC. Make your way to
Den Area 1. From here, follow the path on the way to Den Area 2. Remember
the mysterious SecurityCube here? It's near the beginning and not far from
the warp points. Unlock it using GospCode. You'll find a PMD in there
containing 30000Z! Excellent. Now, take the warp point to YumSquare Entrance.
Take the northern warp point to Yumland 1. From here, take the moving path to
your left and keep going around the corner until you see a warp point. Ignore
it and keep going along the long moving path. Unlock the mysterious
SecurityCube. You'll be met with yet another PMD if you continue along the
path containing a FireRat R. Now, go back to the right and keep going back to
the warp point you previously ignored. Use it to get to another path and
follow it to Yumland 2. Make your way all the way around past the green
ramp and to a central area that has multiple moving paths branching off it
(it is the one closer to Roll, who is hanging around here). From here, take
the moving path to the top right and just at this fork you can see another
mysterious SecurityCube. Unlock it with GospCode. You now have free access to
Netopia 3 from Yumland. From here, find your way to NetSquare Entrance. If
you haven't already, go to the Netdealer in NetSquare and purchase any other
upgrades you may have missed.

MegaMan 680HP LVL 64

Now you're done here, go back to NetSquare and take the path down south to
Netopia 2. From here, go around and down the white ramp. Keep following the
same path and take the moving path to another mysterious SecurityCube. Open
it and follow the path to get a BMD containing 30000Z. More money! We're
really loaded now... Now from here, find your way down and to Netopia 1.
Head around and as you head up the red ramp, you'll see another mysterious
SecurityCube. Open it to free up the path across without having to traverse
around the maze. Jack out and find a way to Koto Area. As you start
walking towards KotoSquare, near the first green ramp you'll see a mysterious
SecurityCube in the corner of your eye in a little dead end. There's a BMD
that was blockaded containing an IceStage I. Make sure you DO NOT go into the
corner to the left of the SecurityCube at the moment, or you'll encounter the
ghost of QuickMan, which I'll come to later.

You're now officially done for today. Take some additional time to unlock
any PMDs you have missed at this point, purchase any upgrades you missed (I
myself had one to get from KotoSquare) and take a look at the Message Board in
the Square.

MegaMan 700HP LVL 65

What an exhausting day! Jack out and at last, go to bed, save and go to
sleep. The scene fades out.

x. Worldwide Disasters = (TRBLE) =
   ===================
Several hours after the highjacking...
In the Official Center, Dr. Hikari and a scientist are discussing finding
Gospel's HQ and trying to defeat them that way. Suddenly, an earthquake
interrupts. Dr. Hikari mentions how it is unusual because the earthquakes
are controlled by their Environmental System. An emergency warning is issued
on the wide screen monitor that there are large-scale disasters in Yumland
and Netopia; floods in Yumland and intense UV radiation in Netopia. Both
scientists comment on how the disasters are becoming worse.

Back to Lan and MegaMan, who are discussing the recent earthquake. Lan gets an
e-mail from Mayl saying that Roll was on the Net when the earthquake occurred.
She lost contact with her and couldn't get her off the Net. She thinks she is
somewhere in Yumland. MegaMan volunteers to find Roll and Lan agrees. We
regain control over Lan again and at that moment an e-mail is received. It's
from NAL thanking the duo for their highjack foiling efforts. You receive a
free NAL pass 'FreePass' as a gift. You can now visit Netopia whenever you
like and you can visit the highjacking incident airplane, because it is on
display now due to repairs.

Sure, Roll should be rescued soon, but there's a little unfinished business to
be done. Go to the Airport. You may go past the VIP entrance if you like. Go
to the Boarding Room and you'll see a familiar face (if you played the
original). There's a man with flaming long red hair here. It's Mr. Match! Talk
to him and challenge him to a Netbattle.

>> BOSS: HEATMAN <<
900HP
Element: Heat
Weakness: Aqua
Fire Tower: HeatMan fires a stream of fire that travels across rows (semi
homing). Lure them to one side and immediately go to the opposite side. The
flames stay ignited for a duration of a few seconds.

Fire Stamp: HeatMan retracts his arms and head, turning into a metal box.
He tries to crush you like a Flappy virus. He leaves an imprint of a Magma
Panel behind. Dodge like you would with any old virus.

Ignition: HeatMan makes several random panels ignite randomly for a second
and he repeats this several times. They flash for a second before they
ignite, so dodge.

HeatMan is not difficult. He's just a little fast and reasonably powerful.
By now, you should find little trouble dealing with random Navis (Gater,
anyone?). Once he is done and out, he gives you a HPMemory.

MegaMan 720HP LVL 66

Go to the final exit, but instead of going to Netopia go to see the planes. Go
to the Cockpit and jack in. Find your way to Air Comp3 (warp past the first
teleporter, not too difficult to get to) and find yourself a RedUFO virus.
S rank one to get a Catcher N chip. Now, jack out. You actually go
backwards now with the FreePass, so head back to the beginning of the Airport
and talk to the blonde Netopian man who wants the Catcher N. He gives you an
insane 50000Z! We're done with that request now.

But there are still more! Go to the License Office and to the request board.
You might notice on the way to the License Office (in Marine Harbor) in the
area on the lower level overlooking the sea that there is a Chip Trader
Special now. Anyway, on with the requests.

Request: Help research
Info:    With the assistance of a TV station, I'm researching virus busting.
Please helpy me with my research. Your task is simple. I want to measure
your Navi's data as you delete viruses. Your reward will be an item that I
know that you will just love. Just don't blame me if your Navi gets
deleted instead. ;) (No joke, Capcom have a basic knowledge of smileys XD)
If you agree to do this job, plug into my van's computer.
Solving: Go outside and jack into Ribitta's Van. From here, start walking off
to the left (following the path) and you will see an Official Navi. Talk to
him. He says that his research consists of generating a virus five times. He
will measure synchronisation and response. Save first, this request is a tough
one. When you are ready, say 'yes' to him to begin. No HP recovery is allowed
in between battles.

Battle 1 - Ratty, Ratty, Flamey2
The Ratties are fast and annoying. Apart from that, nothing should be too
hard.
Battle 2 - Goofball, VacuumFan, HardHead2
Find a way to clear the way, the VacuumFan should be first. The Goofball is the
threat, so take care.
Battle 3 - Sparkler, Cloudy2, Flappy2
They're all meagre annoyers. Eliminate the Sparkler and focus on the Cloudy
next.
Battle 4 - Fishy2, Flamey2, MettFire
Ouch. That Fishy is going to hurt. Take care of it quickly. The MettFire is
going to be your last priority.
Battle 5 - Dominerd2, Fishy3, Fishy3
Now THIS is a hard battle. Soon enough, they will crack every single panel,
thusly trapping you to one spot. After that, the rest is history. Take out
the Dominerd FAST! You're pretty much finished once he uses his Geddon chip.
This battle is all about speed, so whip out some swords to take out the
Dominerd and the Fishies will follow (take care to dodge them, though).

The Official will be amazed. He says that it is useless compared to the
average Navi (you know, in Science we learn that multiple trials are required
for a standard to be reached), but he still thanks you and rewards you with a
PowerUP.

MegaMan 720HP LVL 70 Attack 5 Rapid 1 Charge 5 WoodShieldV2 (my style)

Jack out and return to the request board to take up another new request.

Request: Please help

Solving: Go to the Airport and make your way to Netopia.

On a side note, as you reach Netopia go to Netopia Castle. Go to the secret

As a reward, you get GateKeyC. This is very useful, as it grants access from
Den Area 1 to NetSquare Entrance. Cool! He also gives you a HPMemory. What
a nice guy!

MegaMan 740HP LVL 71

From here, go to Netopia Town. Near the restaurant is an old lady. Talk to
her and she wants your SilvFist V for a BigBomb * Good thing we have it
already. Finally, go next to the hotel and talk to the girl facing the wall
nearby. She wants you to punish four bullies who are hanging out by the
NetSquare Entrance. Go to Netopia Park and go to the Departure Lobby of
Netopia Airport.

An interesting note is that near the duty-free shop, a brown-haired young
girl is there and she is looking for a set of chips for her boyfriend. They
are AquaAura A, FireAura R, WoodAura S and ElecAura L. She'll exchange for
an UnderSht N, but we have none of those chips so ignore her.

Return to Electopia and to ACDC Town. Jack into the Net from Lan's PC and go
to Den Area 1. As you make your way up, you'll see the path to the warp
points is blocked by blue ice... Looks like trouble. Start heading on the
pathway to Den Area 2 and you'll see a program looking at some white ice.
He says it might be possible to break. Examine it and MegaMan will smash the
ice. Viruses emerge!

Mettaur2, Mettaur2, Mettaur2

These guys are no threat. If you can, use the ice terrain to your advantage
(double damage from Electric chips). After they are deleted, press on. As
you find your way around, you'll see a purple Navi staring at yellow ice.
It blocks the way to the warp points, so we're stuck on our request for now
(unless you want to go from Netopia, I couldn't be bothered, personally -
we will return to it later). Keep going towards Den Area 2 and just at the
entrance (to Area 2) you'll see some more white ice. Break it and prepare
for battle.

Shrimpy3, Shrimpy3, Shrimpy3

Again, electricity is devestating against these clowns. I envy those who have
an ElecStyle. After their deletion, proceed to Den Area 2. From here, as
you make your way onwards you'll see white ice and beyond it in a dead end
a lost purple Navi walking around. Break the ice and once again prepare for
battle.

TuffBunny, TuffBunny, TuffBunny

If they paralyse you, you're officially screwed. They are easy to pick off
one at a time, so do whatever you want to delete them. After deleting the
viruses, talk to the purple Navi who says that you should break as much of
the ice as possible. Okay... That's what we're doing. By the way, the ice is
all over the Net - so we know something weird is going on. Start heading up
towards the direction of Den Area 3 and the Square. Going up, a pink Navi
will ask you to find her friend in Koto Area. Put that to memory, we'll get
around to it. Go right and down at the fork towards the Square. You'll see
pink ice blocking the way to Dex's PC that is a problem. Go to the Square
Entrance. From here, check out the latest posts in the Board Room if you like,
otherwise take the western path to the *other* side of Den Area 1 where the
warp points are. From where you are, head directly up and activate the
warp point to NetSquare Entrance. We're finishing our little request we took
up before. Start by going directly south and talking to the first of four
evil Navis here.

Handy3, Handy3, StormBox

Quick deletes are the key here. Take out the Handies (naturally) first and
then focus on the StormBox. The Handies' bombs deal tonnes of damage, so
take care. After the first bully is gone, go further south (to the south of
NetSquare Entrance) and talk to the second bully.

BrushMan2, BrushMan2, DeathFire

Ooh. Viruses we haven't seen before... The BrushMen literally try to paint
on you and they alter the terrain that they paint, so yeah. Take them all
out, focus on the BrushMen first. After these viruses are gone, go to the
far east of the area and talk to the third bully.

Goofball, Goofball, HardHead3

Now THIS is a battle. Speed is the key. Take out the HardHead quickly and
use a LifeSwrd to remove the Goofballs. Waiting will result in death through
becoming trapped and being assaulted with heavy-hitting attacks. I personally
used a well-timed Gater and finished off the HardHead easily thereafter. Once
that is done, go up north and deal with the final bully.

BlueUFO, Fishy2, Fishy3

Another somewhat difficult battle. Remove the Fishies first, of course. The
damned UFO will try to remove your chips from you, so whatever you do, make
it quick. Don't also forget that he can paralyse you, making the Fishies all
the more lethal. Once they're done with, jack out. Don't worry, we'll be
coming back to rescue Roll after handling one more request. Return all the
way to Netopia and talk to the girl. Your reward is the handy StepSwrd M
chip. Now, return to the request board (yes, go all the way to Electopia and
back to Marine Harbor, then the License Office). As you arrive at Electopia,
you might notice that there is now a Retro Chip Trader in the Den Airport
Arrival Lobby. Enough about that, let's handle one more request.

Request: Lend me cash!
Info:    The company I'm in charge of is on the verge of bankruptcy. I need
50000 zennys immediately. If business picks up again, I will repay soon, with
interest. If you can finance me, come to the big mansion in ACDC.
Solving: This is an easy request, provided that you yourself are loaded. Go to
Yai's house in ACDC Town. Talk to the man in office attire right next to the
entrance. He basically says that he runs a disaster management/prevention
agency and that Netbattlers are doing all the work these days, screwing over
his business. Give him the 50000Z he needs. Walk out of the house and right
back in. The man has good news. A natural disaster happened recently (eh...
good news?) and his business is back to normal. He gives you a phenomenal
100000Z! We're REALLY loaded now! So, we're done with the requests up to this
point, so now we can go after Roll.

Go home, go to ACDC Town, jack into the Net and make your way (walking) to
the Square Entrance. As you are in Den Area 1, at the first bridge (above
you, where you cannot see under it but can pass it) pick up the BugFrag along
the way. Head to Den Area 3. You're probably wondering, WTF? Why are we
going to Koto Area? We're helping out the pink Navi from before. It pays off
later and also, Koto Area is much smaller than Yumland, so that's where we're
going off to first. As you are going past Den Area 3, you'll notice the
way to Ribitta's Van is blocked by pink ice. That's why we have to walk to
Koto Area. Enter it.

As you arrive in Koto Area, turn right and you'll see some white ice that
guards nothing. Break it for the sake of it.

Spikey3, Spikey3, Spikey3

All fiery foes. Utilise the ice wisely and take them out at once. Don't get
caught out by their HeatSpreads. After these viruses are deleted, take the
normal route to KotoSquare Entrance. Before you enter the warp, just to
the right is some white ice and a purple Navi behind it. Break the ice.

Dominerd, Dominerd, Dominerd

Trouble, trouble, trouble! Lure the Dominerds one by one into making a false
move and then eliminate them as they become vulnerable. Use the ice panels
to your advantage. Oh, and don't get caught out by facing three Dominerds at
once on ice. Once they're deleted, talk to the purple Navi. He gives you a
RedFrag. MegaMan says it is emitting a weak radio signal and that we should
show it to Dr. Hikari. Jack out and head outside. First, make a detour to
Mayl's house. Her electronic keyboard can now be jacked into! Jack in and go
the centre of the Piano. There are two BMDs; the left one is a HPMemory and
the right one is a RegUP1. Handy!

MegaMan 760HP LVL 72 30MB

Jack out and go to Marine Harbor. From here, go into the Official Center and
head up the elevator to Dr. Hikari's Lab. Talk to Dr. Hikari, who is in his
usual location. Lan explains the situation and Dr. Hikari also tells Lan of
how he discovered each countries' Environment System has been frozen by the
Ice. He hypothesises that Roll is missing because of the ice, as well. He
explains the forms of ice; the four colours. A special cure that only he
can create must be made. He can make RedCure if they have a sample data
from the red-ice virus. Lan gives Dr. Hikari RedFrag. He makes RedCure and
gives it back to Lan. He will go to fix the Environment System. He asks Lan
to destroy all the ice that he can (now he can break red and white ice).
The reason we came to get the RedCure is because you will find the way to
Yumland is blocked by red ice. Anyway, there's a lot to be done now. Head
back home and go to Den Area 1 from Lan's PC.

From here, go to the entrance to Dex's PC (Den Area 2). Break the red ice
here. MegaMan will use the RedCure to do so.

Magmacker, Magmacker, Magmacker

These guys aren't exceptionally tough. Dodge their black holes that paralyse
you and otherwise pick them off one by one. Your only concern is that they
deal a lot of damage. After their deletion, head into the Square Entrance
and from there go to Den Area 3. Head in the direction of Ribitta's Van
and you will see another red ice. Break it.

Ratty2, Ratty2, Ratty2

Ratties are fast and annoying because they spam. Eliminate them all quickly
with a GutsMan or ProtoMan. They will be dealing tonnes of damage in unison,
so watch out. After these guys are gone, go to Koto Area. As you are heading
towards KotoSquare Entrance, at a dead end up ahead you'll see more red ice.
Break it.

MegaBunny, MegaBunny, MegaBunny

The strongest bunnies around are nothing to scoff at. They will spam,
paralyse, spam and so on. They are fast enough to repeat that process until
you are dead. Quick kills ensure they are of no trouble. You're done in
Koto Area, so jack out. Go to Dex's house and jack in. Make your way to
Den Area 2. Now, instead of going to the Square Entrance, head up to Den
Area 3. As you are heading in the direction of the crossroads (between
Yumland and Netopia) you will be blocked by more red ice. Break it.

Handy2, Handy2, Handy2

You've faced these guys before. Eliminate them one at a time. Easy. After the
ice is gone, turn left and enter Yumland.

Immediately head right in Yumland 1 and you'll see more red ice to break.

Fishy3, Fishy3, Fishy3

Toughest enemies you have faced yet. Gater would be useful. If not, somehow
dodge them and eliminate them one by one. After this ice is gone, head back
to the main path and take the moving path to the left. There's more red
ice past here.

Spooky3, Spooky3, Spooky3

These ghouls are back. They're not hard, just an annoyance. Evade and hit them
with general mass-targetting attacks. They're easy to pick off. Once that's
done, go to Yumland 2.

Head in the direction of YumSquare Entrance. From the beginning, you would
have headed right and up and then to the left. You'll see Roll in a dead end
that cannot be reached from here, so go around. There's red ice blocking the
way!

Ratty2, Ratty2, Ratty2

These clowns again. You know the drill. Afterwards, go and talk to Roll. She
will get back into contact with Mayl. Now, start making your way towards
YumSquare Entrance. At the fork where the left path leads to the green ramp,
take the right one instead and you'll see red ice blocking a program.

Cloudy, Cloudy, Cloudy

Electricity is your friend. Take them out one at a time, this battle is
relatively easy compared to what you have faced before. Talk to the program
and he talks about HeatData and how he has been slacking off from work. This
is important for later, so remember that.

Go to Okuden Valley. You may notice that at the beginning on the garden is
a Retro Chip Trader. Anyway, go to the Campground. Go to the BBQ and jack
into the right one. Just behind you collect the BMD containing a MiniEnrg.
Head directly up (north-most point of the area) and collect the BMD
there containing a Bubbler R. Now, go to the western corner of this area and
talk to the program there. He's the program you rescued's employer and he
thanks you for rescuing him. You will receive HeatData. Jack out.

As Lan is going to walk away, another earthquake strikes. He gets an e-mail
saying that disasters around the world are worsening and an evacuation order
has been issued to Electopians. MegaMan and Lan have no time to waste!

Return to ACDC Town, go to Dex's PC, jack in, go to Den Area 2 then head to
the Square. From here, go to the Board Room. Read the Street Board and all
the posts there. People there will say that on the Undernet in UnderSquare
a Navi called Doc will appear when a special keyword is posted in the Board
Room there. He can make cures for any kind of virus. The poster named Crow
also says that an informant in UnderSquare knows the keyword. As you stop
reading the posts, you get an e-mail from Mayl. Mayl thanks you for your
efforts rescuing Roll. A one-of-a-kind RollV3 R chip is included. Anyway, our
next destination is... dun - dun - dun - the Undernet!

Return to Den Area 2 and go to Den Area 3. At the crossroads go right to enter
Netopia. Go from here to Netopia 2, because Netopia 1 is filled with yellow
and blue ice which we cannot break yet. From here, go immediately left to
see more red ice.

Shrimpy3, Shrimpy3, Shrimpy3

You have also faced these viruses before. No big deal, right? You've freed the
way to Raoul's Radio. Anyway, head right on the familiar route to NetSquare
Entrance. On the way, you'll see more Navis trapped in yellow ice. We can't
help them yet. Go from NetSquare Entrance to Netopia 3. Follow the familiar
path to the Undernet, there's a lot of yellow ice that you can't break.
Directly to the right of Mrs. Millions' Bag is more red ice, blocking the
way to the Undernet. Break it.

Swordy2, Swordy2, Swordy2

Quickly delete them before they manage to trap you. This battle is all about
speed, as are many before it. After the ice is gone, keep going and take the
warp point. Afterwards, follow the path and you shall arrive in the Undernet.

Welcome to the deepest area in the Net, the Undernet. Head straight up
past the moving path. Some of the viruses here are the tougher ones that
you have encountered in the past, so watch out. Anyway, go up and up the
stairs (to the left is a dead end). Turn right, around the corner and
go along the moving path when you can that leads right. Follow the path
(don't deviate along the moving path to the left) and enter the warp point.

Follow the path and turn right at the first fork (left is an obvious dead
end). Keep going up the stairs, past the blue ice to Undernet 2.

Go straight and take the big set of stairs. Take the stairs to the right
and follow it around to get a BMD containing a HPMemory.

MegaMan 780HP LVL 73

Return to where there is another set of stairs to the left and take them.
Follow the path up, down and up again. Head right along the moving path
you see and you will see around the corner an evil-looking Navi. He tells
you the directions to UnderSquare; straight ahead. Going left leads to
Undernet 3, which is unnecessary. Go down the stairs, following the same
path. When you see a moving path going left, take it, because straight down
is a dead end. Follow the path, careful not to tread on the moving path to
the right. At the next fork, head right and take the winding path to the
warp point. The other forks lead to dead ends that may/may not have GMDs.
From here, walk down and take the bigger warp point that leads to UnderSquare
Entrance.

Go to the far right of the Entrance and enter UnderSquare. As you enter, talk
to the second evil Navi you see. He is an informant and he will give you some
information for 10000Z. You should have tonnes of money, so agree. He says a
purple Navi in NetSquare knows the keyword and that he is greedy. That's
our next destination, but first there is something else to take care of. Go
to the far right of the UnderSquare to find an evil Netdealer and a
subchipdealer.

UnderSquare Netdealer

Buy what you like, I had enough money to easily buy every upgrade he had.

MegaMan 840HP Attack 5 Rapid 2 Charge 5 LVL 80

UnderSquare Subchipdealer
MiniEnrg	50
FullEnrg	400
Untrap		100

Untrap is useful, but not required for now. Anyway, now go to the UnderBoard
(green outlined room in the middle of UnderSquare) and read the posts. Apart
from that, jack out. Jack in again and return to Den Area 2, then to the
Square Entrance. Take the western warp point to the other side of Den Area 1
and take the top right warp point to NetSquare Entrance. Go to NetSquare.
Head down to the second floor and talk to the first green Navi you see. He
says his friend knows the keyword, but he has gone shopping on the Net. He
says he isn't too far away. Go back from NetSquare Entrance to Netopia 2.
As you go right, you can see the Netdealer there and a purple Navi. That's
the Navi we need to talk to. Follow the path, take a warp point, go down
the ramp and go immediately to the moving path that goes off to the right.
Follow it and at the big sign go up and at the end you'll see the Netdealer
and the purple Navi. He will give it to you if you have a ZapRing2 B. You can
get one by S ranking TuffBunnies. The easiest location is the Divine Goddess
Statue in Netopia Castle. I already had one :) Give it to him and he says
that the keyword is WWW.

Now, we have to return to the Undernet. Go from NetSquare Entrance to Netopia 3
and from there, go to the Undernet. I actually just remembered about another
Netdealer :P From the first stairs you go up in Undernet 1, head right and
follow the path until you see a moving path going along the same path. Follow
this path (normally you would go right) and you will reach an evil Navi,
who is in fact a Netdealer.

Undernet 1 Netdealer

But all the upgrades. Don't buy the FullCust yet, we will use the glitch we
have discussed before to get it.

MegaMan 900HP LVL 83

Hey! We're actually getting close to maxing out MegaMan. Anyway, going to the
right of the Undernet 1 Netdealer will take you full circle, backwards again
so that you can make your way all the way to UnderSquare. Go to the UnderBoard
and examine the Undernet Info Board (left). MegaMan will post the keyword.
We know must look for Doc. Near the shops in UnderSquare, you'll see an
Official Navi. Talk to him. He's a sarcastic, strange fellow. He will help
you with your ventures if you give him all your upgrades and battlechips.
Just do it, don't worry. He will say that you are brave and will agree to
create the cure. He gives everything back and an AntiRecv D chip. He will
make YeloCure if he has a YellFrag and HeatData. He has the YellFrag and if
you paid attention, you have the HeatData. Give it to Doc and after two
seconds, he gives you YeloCure! He also says he knows some guy in Netopia 2
whose brother has been trying everything to break the ice. So our next
destination is Netopia...

Jack out, jack in, go to Den Area 2, from there go to Den Area 3 and finally
turn right at the crossroads to enter Netopia. head directly up in Netopia 1
and you'll see a program blocked by yellow ice. Break it.

Handy2, Handy2, Handy2

Old bunch of viruses. Easy. After the ice is gone, the program thanks you.
Proceed to Netopia 2, but just near the entrance is yellow ice (blocking a
moving path, near some blue ice). Break it away!

Swordy3, Swordy3, Swordy3

Quickly delete them before they trap you and slice you to death. After this,
head on to Netopia 2. Head towards NetSquare. On the way (after heading up
a ramp and turning right, then around the corner) you'll see a purple Navi
asking for help, because someone is trapped. From him, head to the left and
you'll see a green Navi trapped in yellow ice. Break it.

Fishy2, Fishy2, Fishy2

Again, quick deletes will result in a nice finish. Take them out ASAP. If
not, eliminate them one by one. Frankly, without defeating any in a single
turn you're as good as dead. If anything, make sure that they target the
far rows so that you can escape through the middle row. Talk to the green
Navi. His little brother is missing and he asks you to find him in exchange
for a reward. He may have gone as far as the Undernet and is the best
keymaker in Netopia. Interesting. So back to the Undernet we need to go.
Just before NetSquare Entrance, there is a program trapped in yellow ice.
Break it.

Beetank2, Beetank2, Beetank2

Annoying, but not terribly difficult. Avoid their fire and watch out for the
ice. Try not to go immediately in front of them or they become more
dangerous. After they are gone, talk to the program. He says that there is
a rumor that the Undernet and Kotobuki are somehow connected. Strange...
Commit that to memory. Now, go to NetSquare Entrance and to Netopia 3. As
you proceed, near the series of moving paths is more yellow ice.

HardHead3, HardHead3, HardHead3

Wait for them to become vulnerable and make sure they don't trap you. Apart
from that, this battle is a cinch. After this, head towards the Undernet.
Before the ramp that you must go up first, there is a program trapped by
yellow ice. Let's help him out.

Popper, Popper, Popper

Poppers will only appear temporarily and are quite a nuisance. Target them one
at a time and dodge their Wood Tower attacks. The program doesn't say
anything useful. Go to the Undernet. In Undernet 2, where the evil Navi
guide is go left on the way to Undernet 3. Go down the stairs and you'll see
a purple Navi looking at yellow ice. Talk to him. He basically says the
same thing a dozen Navis have said about the ice being dangerous. Break the
ice.

Beetank2, Beetank2, Beetank2

Same old tactics again. After that's done with, head past the way the ice
blocked into Undernet 3. Walk along the winding but linear path until you see
a pink Navi looking at blue ice. Talk to him and he says that he knows that
3 BluFrags are required to break the blue ice, but he can't figure out what
to do. He says to tell his brother that everything is alright and he'll be
back soon. Jack out, jack in and go to Netopia AGAIN.

Kinda bored with the backtracking? Thought so. Go back to the keymaker's
brother, who is in the same place he was before. He gives MegaMan BluFragA.
Now, we have to go back to Undernet 3 again... You know the way. As you
start walking along the path, a cutscene occurs where MegaMan sees an evil
Navi walking on the floor below. MegaMan asks Lan how that Navi got there.
The evil Navi talks to MegaMan, explaining that he has a BluFrag. He also
says that Gospel's Civilization Destruction Plan will be complete, so
his efforts are futile (sure they are). Lan and MegaMan now must find a
route to get down there. At that moment, you get an e-mail. Chaud has
reported that he has discovered a path to the Undernet from KotoSquare, but
a special key is required. It appears ProtoMan was also following that Navi!
Now, jack out.

Use the Square Entrance to get to Den Area 1 and then to NetSquare Entrance.
Go to NetSquare. On the second floor, the keymaker is there (the pink Navi).
Talk to him and he will give you GateKeyD. Return to Den Area 1 and open
up the final warp point; to the bottom left.

You will emerge in KotoSquare Entrance, but on the other side of the
moving path that you could not bypass before. There is a route going to the
left that you haven't been to before.

You're in a place called UnderKoto now. This is the link we've been looking
for between KotoSquare and the Undernet. From where you emerge, go right
and down the ramp. You'll be on the middle path with a lot of forks each
with moving paths on them. Take the first moving path right and keep taking
the moving paths right. When you can, go up the ramp and you'll see a
Netdealer.

UnderKoto Netdealer

I was able to afford everything except one HPMemory...

MegaMan 940HP Attack 5 Rapid 3 Charge 5 LVL 89

Go back down and go to the left on the moving path to be taken back to the
middle path. Take the first moving path to the right again and from here
go down, taking the moving path that is heading down. Take the moving path
that leads up and take the upper moving path leading right to find a PMD
containing an AntiRecv M. From here, go up, ignoring the moving paths until
you see a BMD in a dead end that has a BugFrag. Afterwards, go down and keep
going straight down until you see a big purple area to your left. Follow this
path, past some blue ice and enter the next area, which is...

Surprise, surprise, Undernet 3; on the lower level. Follow the path until
you hit a big fork. Go left, past a blue tree and keep going past the sign
here. Go down the path and unlock the mysterious SecurityCube. Go past it
to find a BMD containing a BugFrag. Backtrack to the sign and this time
go right. Follow the path to a big black area and you will see the evil
Navi standing alone. Save and talk to him. He says a few words before sending
some viruses after you.

Null&Void, Null&Void, Null&Void

As their name suggests, these guys will recover if hit rapidly. So, wipe
them all out in a single shot. LifeSwrd, Gater, whatever. They are weak
to electric attacks. After their defeat, the evil Navi revealed he was
stalling. He says Gospel's Supreme Commander FreezeMan is moving towards
world destruction. Lan asks him where Gospel's HQ is. The evil Navi
idiotically reveals that it is in fact in KotoSquare! Didn't see that one,
did you? The evil Navi dies and leaves behind BluFragB as well as a GospelID.
We must storm Gospel's HQ now. At that point, MegaMan gets an e-mail that
a powerful earthquake will occur soon, so we better hurry up. Jack out.

Jack in, go to Den Area 2, go to the Square Entrance, from there go to
Den Area 1 and finally go to KotoSquare Entrance using the warp point. On the
way, ignore the yellow ice that you could have broken to get to the warp
points the normal way, because we can get there a better way :) From KotoSquare
Entrance, take the moving path up and enter KotoSquare. You'll notice that
it is completely empty, except for the shops. Strange... Go to the barrier
that a program had been blocking before. Examine it and MegaMan will use
GospelID to bypass it. Continue along the path and enter the green outlined
door to emerge in...

Gospel HQ. Now, proceed forward. Yellow ice blocks the way! Break away...

Flappy3, Flappy3, Flappy3

No sweat. Dodge and eliminate one at a time. Defeat them before they start
trapping you with their cracked panels. A bit further onwards is more yellow
ice.

Fishy2, Fishy2, Fishy2

A nuisance, but not difficult, as you have faced them before. Remember the
old strategy of dodging on the far rows and eliminating them quickly. Further
along, you'll find another yellow ice formation.

Flamey3, Flamey3, Flamey3

The strongest of the Flamey family will move, effectively trapping you. Take
them out quickly somehow. After this, use a FullEnrg, save and move on.
Keep walking to find a Navi surrounded by a lot of ice. This Navi is the
Supreme Commander of Gospel, FreezeMan. He orchestrated the Civilisation
Destruction Plan and he says that soon an earthquake measuring 10 on the
Richter Scale will strike. MegaMan orders him to give the third BluFrag, but
FreezeMan says the third BluFrag is in fact him! That means that he must be
deleted to save the world. Get ready for one of the last boss battles of the
game.

>> BOSS: FREEZEMAN <<
1000HP
Element: Aqua
Weakness: Electric
Ice Shards: FreezeMan sends ice from above to strike panels randomly. Dodge.

Icy Wind: FreezeMan uses the wind to force MegaMan backwards and get hit by
Ice Shards and/or Ice Tower.

Ice Barrier: FreezeMan protects himself with a barrier that has a certain
amount of HP. Break it.

Ice Tower: FreezeMan shoots ice that travels along the panels, just like the
other tower attacks. Move to one side and use the ice to immediately slide
to the other side.

FreezeMan is one of the easiest bosses in the game if you know what you are
doing. Use his weakness of electricity to your fullest advantage; there are
many powerful electric chips. Use ElecStyle is you can and spam your
ZapRings at him. Because of their paralysis effect, he will be helpless as
you repetitively use it. If you are lacking in electric attacks, treat him
like any other boss; use strong attacks like LifeSwrd, Gater and so on.

He cannot believe he lost, but still is confident that the earthquake will
strike. He says it is too late to make the Cure. MegaMan gets the last
BluFrag as FreezeMan is deleted. Suddenly, the ice breaks. Lan and MegaMan
are concerned, by Doc shows up. He says there is no need to worry, because
the ice's power source was FreezeMan and now he is gone. They say their
goodbyes and MegaMan is left alone. He gets an e-mail from Dr. Hikari
saying that the Environment System has thawed and returned to normal. We're
pretty much done for today, so jack out. Go home and talk to Lan's Mom. After
a brief talk about how she was worried, you can go to your room. Go to bed,
save and go to sleep.

xi. Storming Gospel = (STORM) =
    ===============
One week later...
We see ProtoMan fighting past Gospel Navis again and again, even after they
are deleted they keep coming back! After Chaud starts becoming angry and
losing hope that they Navis will be deleted, the scene switches to the
Official Center. The Officials are at a meeting discussing Chaud's progress,
taking on some mission in Netopia. The conversation turns to the oddity that
even though Lan destroyed Gospel's base in Kotobuki, netcrime is at record
levels. A scientist suggest to Dr. Hikari that they may have overlooked
something. Dr. Hikari agrees. Since Chaud, their top Netbattler, hasn't
returned, they agree to send a city Netbattler; namely, Lan to investigate
KotoSquare again. Dr. Hikari has his reservations because of the danger
possibly involved. The Officials argue that it is an emergency and they
all finally agree to notify all city Netbattlers to check out KotoSquare.

Lan emerges from his bedroom and asks his Mom about another incident. They
are both troubled that despite Gospel's defeat, trouble is brewing everywhere.
An e-mail arrives and Lan checks it out. It's an e-mail from the Center
asking all city NetBattlers to re-inspect KotoSquare. Lan and MegaMan are
confused, but agree that it must be done. We regain control over Lan and
MegaMan.

Jack into the control panel next to the TV and head to the centre of the area.
Get the BMD containing an Unlocker. Useful. Now, go to the top left corner to
find another BMD containing a BugFrag. Jack out.

Go to Lan's PC, jack in and use the warp point to return to KotoSquare.
Interestingly, the program that guarded the Gospel HQ has returned, but no
one else has. Go to Gospel HQ and return to where FreezeMan was. You'll see
random evil Navis and programs acting all mean (no viruses though) on the
way. A cutscene occurs where MegaMan sees random Gospel followers appearing
from a portal in the wall. MegaMan destroys a Navi and proceeds to try to
destroy the portal, but fails. Lan suggests visiting Kotobuki Town, but
they aren't sure how. MegaMan suggests asking Dr. Hikari, so that's where
we are off to now. Jack out.

Go to the Metroline Station, you'll see that there is a new installed
Chip Trader Special. Let's take a trip to Okuden first, shall we? Go to
Camp Road 2 and just before the Campground entrance. Examine the tree to the
left closest to the entrance and an old lady will be there (!) She will
give you a RegUP2.

MegaMan 940HP 32MB

That's it for Okuden for now. Go to Marine Harbor. There are two more requests
to handle (the last two in the game!). But first, go up to Dr. Hikari's Lab.
Don't go to him yet, instead make a turn to the Mother Computer Room. Keep
going past the control panels until you see a black Netopian woman near one
(she is next to the first one you are able to jack into). She wants a
BigBomb * chip. Give it to her and she will give you her (Jennifer's)
chipfolder. She is a scientist who requires the chip for a Program Advance,
which she reveals if you talk to her again.

Jennifer's Folder:
(30)
2 Ratton1 H
1 Ratton1 I
1 Ratton1 J
1 Ratton2 J
1 TripNdl C
1 TripNdl I
3 Spice2 E
3 LilCloud G
1 SilvFist E
1 Catcher F

1 WideSwrd Y
1 FireBlde F
1 AquaBlde A
1 ElecBlde E
1 StepSwrd U
1 MagLine Q
1 LavaLine M
1 IceLine J
1 Atk+20 *
1 AreaGrab *

Make good use of the Program Advance in there, as well as the AreaGrab *.
Once that's done, go to Dr. Hikari and talk to him. He says that he was
hoping Lan wouldn't be involved. Lan asks why and Dr. Hikari responds by
saying that the battle ahead feels like the final and most difficult of all.
He feels Gospel is up to something, but he doesn't know what. They move to
the big screen (and more privacy) where Dr. Hikari reveals that Kotobuki
Town is emitting radiation. He believes that this is connected to the warping
of KotoSquare and believes Gospel is behind all this; the real HQ is in
Kotobuki Town! The radiation is dangerous to Lan, but he still wants to go.
Dr. Hikari explains that he has two things to assist Lan; first, transport
to Kotobuki is possible via the unopened Kotobuki Metroline; they've made a
special car that will absorb some radiation. The scientists have also
developed a shielded MagSuit. After some more discussion about the danger
and Dr. Hikari's reluctance, as well as the pep talk about Lan and MegaMan
always being together as brothers, he (Dr. Hikari) hands Lan a KotoPass and
a MagSuit. It's time to STORM GOSPEL!

Or are we? I think we should iron out a few things just before we leave. You
guessed it - we will handle the final requests of the game. A key note to
remember for future reference is that Kotobuki can *only* be accessed from
Marine Harbor. Proceed to the License Office. Check the request boards.

Request: To bug academics
Info:    I belong to the Electopia Bug Society. I'm looking for a bug I'm
researching for the Synopsium. It's called the Den Beetle, and it lives in
Electopia. It's a very rare bug, and I'm having trouble finding one. I'm
looking for someone to help me find this bug. If you can help, see me at
the Okuden Valley campground.
Solving: It's time to hit Okuden one last time! Go to the Campground. Once
there, look near the river (close to the entrance) and you'll see the bug
expert from the entire 'Aerial Assault' scenario. Talk to him. He recognises
Lan immediately and is reassured. He says the Den Beetle is around the
camping area and that it likes places where the water is peaceful. This isn't
a hard request at all. On Camp Road 1, go the river and along the rocks,
go to the furthest end of the one closest to the boy who wants an Invis1 *.
Examine the corner and you'll get the Den Beetle. Return to the expert and
he will reward you with a Recov200 M.

Return to the request board to take the final request of the game.

Request: Return my gem!
Info:    I work at a jewelry shop in Netopia, and 3 gems were stolen: "YumTear"
"KngStone" "Twilight" I know who did it, but I don't know where he is. Please
help me with my investigation.
Solving: Go to Netopia.

On a side note, in the Airport take on Mr. Match and HeatManV2. He has 1100HP,
and uses his Ignition as well as his Heat Stamp a lot more often. Apart from
that, defeat him the same way and make sure he doesn't trap you. Your reward
is a HeatMan H chip.

Another interesting note is that there is a boy in First Class on the planes
(a black boy) who is staring at the monitor. He wants a ShadoMan S, ShadoManV2
S and a ShadoManV3 S chips for his AntiDmg S. We don't have them yet...

Once you reach Netopia, there's another side mission to be done. Of interest
to you (maybe) is that Chaud is outside Netopia Castle now. Enter Netopia
Castle and go down into the dungeons until you reach the Arrow Room (the
trap room you were in during the 'ONBA Meeting' scenario). There's an old
man here, talk to him. He is the QuizKing and he needs someone to set his
soul free. Apparently, he actually died 230 years ago, but is 'borrowing'
this old man's body. Anyway, accept his challenge of 15 questions.

He will be set free. He gives you a nice RegUP3.

MegaMan 940HP 35MB

Now, exit Netopia Castle. In Netopia Park, just before the entrance to Town
there are some trees. There is a young black boy being obscured by these
trees. Examine them until you talk to him and he will give you a SubMem. Now,
let's proceed with that last request. Go into Town. Head into the Jewelry
Shop and on the right hand side, there is a woman in a uniform standing
(not over the counter, apart from her). Her three most precious jewels were
stolen. They were taken by the '3 Bandit Sisters'. She says that they
unleash viruses when threatened, have been sighted near the castle and they
have a peculiar dialect. Go back to Netopia Park. From here, head up the
left side of the castle along the narrow path. You will see a girl as you
head forward. Talk to her. She is the first of the '3 Bandit Sisters'. She
will send some viruses after you.

Fishy2, DeathFire, Flamey3

The Fishy must be offed first and then go after the Flamey. Last of all is
the DeathFire. All these viruses are a familiar sight, so don't be too
concerned. After she is defeated, talk to her again. She will return her
YumTear. Now, go to Netopia Town and enter the Hotel. Talk to the new black
woman that is here. Talk to her twice and she will reveal her identity as
the second of the '3 Bandit Sisters'. She will launch some viruses at you.

Swordy3, Cloudy3, Poofy

An interesting bunch of water viruses. Make good use of their weakness to
electricity. Apart from that, you're free to do as you like. Just don't get
deleted! A word of advice: the Poofy fires a bubble that is constantly after
you, so keep moving, or eliminate the annoyance quickly. Once the viruses are
deleted, talk to her again to get the KngStone. Return to Netopia Castle, but
this time enter it. Keep going straight and up the stairs to reach the
Watchtower, where you fought Pride before. There is a camper woman here.
Speak to her. She says that her sisters did not bother mastering fluent
Netopian, but she has and she needs her jewel. Prepare for a last round of
viruses.

Sparknoid, Sparknoid, GreenUFO

Easy. Quick deletes for the win, seriously. If you let them live, you are gone,
otherwise they are gone. Speed is the answer. After their delete, talk to the
last of the '3 Bandit Sisters' one more time. Apparently, the jewel belonged
to her grandfather but was stolen from him by a corrupt jeweller. She decides
to amend her ways and one day the '3 Sisters' can reclaim the jewels they
once owned. She returns Twilight. Now, go all the way back to the Jewelry
Shop and talk to the woman again. She is very grateful and rewards you with
a GoldFist Z. Congratulations, you have just completed every request in the
game!

Well, seriously, we are now officially ready to go to Kotobuki Town. There
are a few last minute things you may consider doing, just to be sure you
are perfectly ready:
* Unlock any PMDs you missed
* Get all upgrades possible at this point; I myself purchased one more
HPMemory from UnderKoto

The maximum stats at this point in the game are:
MegaMan 960HP LVL 90

Alright, jack out, go to Marine Harbor and directly (without buying a ticket)
go to the ticket machine. MegaMan asks whether you want to go to Kotobuki.
Say 'yes'.

Elsewhere, the eery Gospel theme starts playing.  We see the body (behind)
of a being, whose hair is flashing and multi-coloured. Lan has been detected
going to Kotobuki Town. The figure says it is too late, he will soon
complete the SuperNavi. Lan and MegaMan will meet their deaths, so the figure
says.

Lan and MegaMan arrive in Kotobuki Town. But something is wacked about this
place... They see a big apartment building that is eminating radiation
almost 30000 times normal, and it appears distorted, flickering and eminating
an unusual light. The duo figure Gospel's base is probably at the top of the
apartment building. So that's where we have to go next. Start following the
path. When you see the Koto-Mart, jack into the vending machine. Go to the
top right of the area, near the program there. There's a BMD containing a
RegUP3.

MegaMan 960HP 38MB

Not bad, we're coming along nicely. Jack out. Approach the big building and
enter. Go and hit the switch to the elevator as you enter. The elevator won't
work, but Lan bangs it and the 'bing' of the elevator arriving is heard. Lan
seems happy, but MegaMan reminds him that someone will be in the elevator! He
goes to hide, but he hears a familiar voice. Dex emerges, followed by Yai and
Mayl. They apparently got their hands on MagWear, thanks to Yai's father. They
say that the whole building is a big server and that the servers are growing.
The second floor is as high up as they could go. Dex suddenly falls down and
Mayl explains Dex has absorbed the most radiation out of any of them. Lan
tells them to get to safety and once they're gone, he and MegaMan decide it's
time to storm Gospel's base.

But first, there's some things to be done. Go to the automatic lock and jack
in (still on this floor). Go to the central western side and get the BMD
there containing a BugFrag. Also, go down to the south east corner of the
area and get the PMD containing a Guardian O. Once done, jack out.

Head outside. Go back to the entrance to Kotobuki Town and talk to Yai. She
will give you an Atk+20 *. Go back to Marine Harbor and journey up to the
Mother Computer Room. Concealed by the first control panel that only the
Officials can jack into is a program (yes, in the real world). Examine the
concealed side of the first control panel you see and the program will be
revealed. Your reward is a PowerUP. Well done, you've finished all the
'Hide & Seek' sidequests in the game.

MegaMan 960HP LVL 94 Attack 5 Rapid 4 Charge 5

I suggest at this point, that since you probably still haven't deviated from
the Gater G Folder I constructed before, you might consider battling Mr.
Famous and his GateManV3 for GateMan, GateManV2 and even GateManV3 chips so
that you have an easier time getting Gater (and there are more Gaters in
your Folder). GateManV3 has 1000HP, so watch out. Five Gaters in your Folder
will prove unbelievably useful for the final boss. My Folder looked like the
following:

(30)
5 Fan G
5 Wind G
5 GateManV3 G
2 Atk+20 *
1 AreaGrab * PRESET
2 AreaGrab S
1 Sword L
3 WideSwrd L
4 LongSwrd L
1 ElecSwrd *
1 Recov200 M

The point is that you should be prepared with a Folder that can dish out
lots of damage relatively quickly and easily. * We'll get back to other V3
Navis a little later...*

Well, back to Kotobuki we go. Enter the Apartment and hit the elevator switch.
Go to 2F. From here, go to the far left and enter the red door. This is a
section of the massive server. Jack in at the main server (the one with
green squares on it). As MegaMan enters, Lan wonders why he can see portions
of the real world in the Cyber World. MegaMan theorises that the radiation is
warping the two worlds into one. We're in control of MegaMan again. Cool,
reminiscent music, eh?

Start heading up. Follow the path (don't deviate) and head into the stable
warp point. From where you emerge, follow the path to a dead end with a BMD
containing a Recov150 T. Backtrack to the other side of the warp point, but
this time go left when you can. Enter the unstable warp point. Because of
the radiation, MegaMan is blown to the wrong address. The whole point of this
server is to fix up the warp points by placing ElBits in the appropriate
control programs. We'll get to that a bit later. From where you emerge, go
to the left where a program is wandering around. Keep following the path
to hit a dead end with a BMD that contains ElBit082. Return to the warp point,
but ignore it and keep following the path to another dead end with a BMD
that contains a HPMemory.

MegaMan 980HP LVL 95

Go back to the warp point and examine the control program (the yellow device
next to the warp point). Insert the ElBit082. You'll be warped back to where
you entered the unstable warp point, but the warp point is now stable. Enter
the warp point (now stable) again and you will be warped elsewhere. The
program nearby says that the radiation is now normal. Follow the path and
at the first fork, immediately turn right. Enter the unstable warp point.
From here, follow the path to a dead end with a BMD containing ElBit232.
Return to the unstable warp point and insert ElBit232. Enter the warp point
after getting warped back to the previous area. Follow the path from here
to the dead end with a BMD containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan 980HP LVL 95 39MB

Backtrack through the warp point and all the way to the fork. Head up the
path you haven't been to before to enter the next area.

Follow the path, ignore the turn you see. Enter the stable warp point.
From here, head up and at the first fork turn right. Enter the stable
warp point. Visit both forked dead ends for BMDs containing 3000Z (straight)
and a HiCannon * (down). Backtrack to the fork again (most recent one) and
this time head up. Follow the path and enter the unstable warp point. Follow
the winding path and at the next fork, go left and follow the path to a
dead end with a BMD containing 1200Z. Return to the fork and this time go
right. Enter the next stable warp point you see. From here, follow the
path (don't deviate) and get the BMD in the dead end that has an ElBitEV.
Return through the stable warp point, back to the left and all the way to
the unstable warp point. Venture back through it. From here, follow the
path (don't deviate) to a warp point. You're back at the beginning of this
area, so head along the path. At the next fork, take the path heading right.
Keep going into the next area.

Head up and enter the unstable warp point. Follow the path and enter the
next stable warp point. Again, enter the next warp stable warp point. From
where you are warped to, follow the path to a BMD in a dead end containing
ElBit243. Return through the stable warp point and go back to the unstable
warp point you see. Insert ElBit243 in the control program. Re-enter the
warp point you came from. Follow the path and take the first turn left.
Keep going until you hit a dead end with another BMD that contains ElBit253.
Backtrack through the stable warp point and head up to the next unstable
warp point. Insert ElBit253 in the control program. Re-enter the warp
point and at the fork go down to a BMD in a dead end containing 2000Z.
Now, head up and follow the path, through yet another unstable warp point.
From here, follow the fork right through yet another unstable warp point.
Once you emerge, take the fork right and head along the winding path into
a stable warp point. Take the fork right and at the next fork, go both
ways to find BMDs; ElBit042 (straight) and 2000Z (down). Return to the
warp point and warp back. Walk all the way back again and through the
unstable warp point. Go down to the next unstable warp point and go through
it. Keep going back through another stable warp point. From here, walk down
to the area you were in previously.

When you reach a fork, head up to another warp point. After that, walk up and
follow the path up to another unstable warp point. Go through it and on the
other side insert ElBit042. Warp, re-enter the warp point and from here
follow the winding path to ElBit271. Now, go all the way back to the
preliminary fork and go yet again to the next area.

Go up and enter the warp point. From here, go up at the fork and enter the
unstable warp point. Go right as you emerge and enter another unstable
warp point. On the other side, insert ElBit271. Re-enter the warp point as
you warp. Follow the short path to a BMD with ElBit093. Return through the
warp point and along the path to another unstable warp point (previous one).
Insert ElBit093. Once again, re-enter the warp point as you warp back. At the
fork, go left and follow the path to a dead end with a BMD containing a
PowerUP.

MegaMan 980HP LVL 99 Attack 5 Rapid 5 Charge 5

Return to the fork and this time head straight up.

In this new area, head up and into the warp point. From here, head down and
at the first fork turn right to be met with another BMD in a dead end
containing a FullEnrg. Return to the fork and keep going down. Enter the
unstable warp point. Follow the path and at the next fork, head right for
another BMD in a dead end, containing a BugFrag. Return to the fork and go
up through the warp point. Follow the winding path to yet another BMD in a
dead end containing ElBit201. Return through the warp point to the unstable
warp point and insert ElBit201. Warp and re-enter the warp point. From here,
save and walk up. As MegaMan approaches the last control program, AirMan,
QuickMan and CutMan appear. They all seem mindless and under an autoprogram.
Their orders are to delete MegaMan. With that, we are launched into three
consecutive battles with those Gospel goons. They are all V1, so they should
not be posing a threat to you at all (same as before). If you have problems,
you have some issues. Anyway, once they are deleted, MegaMan inserts ElBitEV
into the control program. It seems like nothing has changed, but the duo
realise the elevator must be fully functioning. MegaMan jacks out.

Exit the door. Return to the elevator. The final floor is accessible, but
don't go there yet. Go to 9F and turn left. Examine the western-most red
door for a HPMemory.

MegaMan 1000HP LVL 100

We're done with MegaMan's upgrades; except for memory! You're ready. Go to
30F.

The scene switches to the mysterious figure. The server's power is now
focussed on the 'bug fusion'. The Gospel figure is now becoming ecstatic;
the SuperNavi is almost complete. A big flash ends the scene.

Back to Lan and MegaMan, who saw it. MegaMan is saying that radiation levels
are increasing! Any more and it will be above the 50000 times normal that the
MagSuit can withstand. Lan says he must push on, regardless of the danger; to
stop Gospel!

Head left and enter the first green door you see. Lan and MegaMan see yet
another server room. No one is inside. Lan is about to enter the next room
when he is hit by extreme amounts of radiation. The door apparently is wired
with unbelievably dangerous amounts of radiation. Lan says there must be a
server that controls the radiation levels and MegaMan tells Lan to jack him
in. Ooh! We're close to the end of the game. Or are we? Anyway, jack into
the main server in this room. As you enter, Lan remarks that this must be the
place. He tells MegaMan to find and destroy the radiation control program.
A-OK, boss.

Head forward and at the fork go right. Follow the long winding path to a
dead end with a BMD containing a RegUP1.

MegaMan 40MB

Return to the fork and this time go left. Go up the ramp here and follow the
path to a BMD containing an AreaGrab *. Now, go all the way back to the
right fork and up the ramp you see. Go up and at the fork go left and up to
meet a BMD at a dead end containing a Recov150 T. Return to the fork and this
time go right. Take the first turn down to a dead end with another BMD that
has 10000Z. Return to the fork and this time proceed down the main path down
a ramp, around a long winding path and when you see a platform ahead, save.
Proceed to the radiation control program. MegaMan sees a green 3D star that
is the radiation level control program. Suddenly, KnightMan, MagnetMan and
FreezeMan appear. It's pretty obvious what they are here for. Enter battle.
MagnetMan is your only meagre threat, if you have been building a strong
Folder he should be no problem, as is the case with the others. After the
viruses are deleted, MegaMan deletes the program. A weird program appears
behind MegaMan. Talk to him and he recommends saving as soon as you jack out.
OK... Jack out.

Save like hell and enter the next area. Lan will enter the room and he will
see many servers. The Gospel figure welcomes Lan to the Gospel Main Server
Room. Both parties make their introductions; the figure is the head of
Gospel. Somehow, he already knows Lan's identity. The Gospel network tells him
everything. He says that the Gospel network has the power to generate crime
all over the world. Lan tells of the suffering he has caused and he says that
he doesn't care, he merely orders the crimes. The speech leads into the
Gospel Leader 'Shuryou' (leader in Japanese) calling reality overrated. Lan
denies his claims but Shuryou says that it is too late. His SuperNavi is
complete and he will rule the world. He asks Lan to join him. Lan refuses
(go Lan! Telling him to 'shove it') and Shuryou is disappointed at Lan's
apparent stupidity in daring to face the SuperNavi. Lan jacks MegaMan in.

Walk along the very linear but long winding path. As you are leaving the
next big square area, GutsMan, Glide and Roll appear. MegaMan is elated, but
then they start attacking him! Shuryou says he stole some Navis and
customised them to attack MegaMan. MegaMan is helpless... Shuryou makes
mockery of Lan's friendship. Until - the real Navis attack the fakes! So they
weren't being controlled after all. Dex, Mayl and Yai all hit the scene as
well. Lan asks Shuryou what he thinks of friendship now and Shuryou sends in
none other than ProtoMan! ProtoMan starts weakening the other Navis. He is
about to go after MegaMan; Mega is too weak to fight back. Right before he
deals the final blow, the REAL ProtoMan shows up and destroys the fake; in
his trademark cool OHKO. After that's done with, the scene switches back
to the real world.

Shuryou is shocked that Chaud has made it despite the foreign disruption
forces. Suddenly, the ground starts shaking in the apartment. The 'bug
fusion' Shuryou was waiting for is complete! He starts laughing his ass
off. The SuperNavi is complete - its name is Bass. Bass is an invincible
Navi that can record chip data at any time. Shuryou reveals his plan that
he will clone Bass and use an army of Bass(es) to rule the world. Back
to MegaMan...

Keep going along the path. More winding linear paths. Joy... Anyway, at the
end, MegaMan sees a glowing Navi that can only be Bass. Shuryou commands
Bass to begin project 'World Domination'. Bass gladly complies. The battle
begins.

>> BOSS: BASS (SUPERNAVI) <<

Bass Barrage: Bass charges up his twin guns (above his hands) and lets the
gunfire rip. Weird energy balls travel randomly across the rows. Dodge if
possible.

Bass is not difficult. He's a little more agile than many other enemies you
may have faced, but the concept is the same as before. Hit him with high
damage chips and he will die before you realise it.

After Bass dies, a young grey-haired boy curses, claiming the bug fusion was
incomplete. He says that the server power must not have been high enough.
Lan is surprised that Shuryou is in fact, a child. This child is the same one
you saw on the Airplane during the 'Aerial Assault' scenario. Anyway, Shuryou
wonders what happened to his cybersuit. Shuryou accuses Lan of mocking him
and he starts rapidly typing on his computer. The server power is boosted to
100% and Shuryou starts glowing. The radiation has rapidly increased and it
is now lethal. Chaud admits that the radiation is too dangerous. The trio
(Dex, Mayl and Yai) decide to escape. Mayl has a teary lovey-dovey speech
with Lan (cough). Chaud gives Lan a few words of encouragement (cough) and
then leaves (well, it is better than what he has said in the past). After
everyone else leaves, Shuryou continuously boosts the server power. Lan
asks him why he wants to rule the world and Shuryou says that because he
hates it all. Shuryou boosts the server power so much that the radiation is
unbelievably high. Lan is becoming sick, as is Shuryou himself. He says to
prepare to face the 'REAL BASS'.

In the Cyber world, Lan is barely able to respond to MegaMan. Bass reappears,
looking as menacing as before. MegaMan is starting to get pissed off. In
front of his eyes, Bass starts groaning and transforming. Shuryou is also
confused. Bass turns into some strange lion creature that is glowing and
looks like he has been made from several pieces of data. Shuryou seems
unphased. He orders the Bass mutation to attack MegaMan. The mutation
does not obey him! At that point, Lan gets a phone call from Dr. Hikari. He
reports that there was a major flaw in Gospel's SuperNavi Plan. Instead of
making a Navi from a bug fusion, the result is a super Multibug Organism. Lan
tells him of the creation of the organism already and Dr. Hikari says that if
it gets on the Net, bugs shall rule the world; not Gospel. He says that it
must be deleted. Lan groans and Dr. Hikari seems concerned, but Lan conceals
the true state of affairs and hangs up. He says to MegaMan there is no
point in worrying his Dad. The Multibug Organism starts to growl and somehow
the server power is increasing by itself; making the radiation increase at
phenomenal levels.

Lan is now not able to respond to MegaMan. MegaMan uses his heart to
communicate with Lan, as they are twin brothers. MegaMan decides to use his
'heart program' in full synch with Lan. Lan will be able to operate
MegaMan with his heart, despite the fact he is unconscious. With a short
speech about them being brothers and friends, Lan is able to communicate with
MegaMan. The battle with the Multibug Organism; Gospel, begins.

2000HP

Bug Frag Assault: Random fragments of data continuously appear down certain
rows, as distractions.

Gear Trap: Gears sometimes block the way in random panels.

Gospel Charge: Gospel charges and sends a shockwave breath towards you,
that cracks panels and is semi-homing.

Death Signal: Gospel sucks MegaMan forward (in) in preparation for his killer;
Gospel Breath. Move backwards as fast as possible.

Gospel Breath: Gospel breathes an elemental blast that is super-effective
against your Style element. He does this repetitively.

Summon Gospel Navi: Occasionally, Gospel summons one of either AirMan,
QuickMan or CutMan to attack with their signature attacks. This leaves it
vulnerable. AirMan; tornado, QuickMan; boomerang attack (diagonal),
CutMan (scissor cut)

Drill Charge: Gospel turns his head into a drill and shoots it down the
middle row. Dodge as fast as possible. He does this twice in a row.

Gospel is not difficult, given you know what to do. He has a LOT of HP, and
a wide arsenal of attacks at his disposal. Use your best Program Advances,
whether it be LifeSwrd or Gater and so forth. He is only vulnerable when
his mouth opens or when he changes into a Gospel Navi. Towards his death,
he uses Gospel Breath in combination with Death Signal frequently. Once
you're done finishing him off, congratulations on defeating the final boss
(or is it?), at least storywise, in the game!

Gospel fades away, deleted. Lan comes to and the servers have stopped.
Shuryou is still on the floor. He absorbed the most radiation. Lan finds a
book next to him. He reads Shuryou's diary. Apparently, his parents died in
a famous netcrime plane crash and he had lived with cruel relatives. He had
grown to trust no one except himself and he was very lonely. MegaMan and
Lan now understand what drove Shuryou to do evil with Gospel. Only
computers were his friends. Gospel was made to get back at the world. At
that moment, Shuryou wakes up. He surrenders and doesn't want to live, but
Lan convinces him that life is worth living. He says that after he is atoned
for his crimes, he will be his first friend.

Lan talks about how Gospel was disbanded, how peace returned to both the
real and Cyber worlds and how Shuryou was properly dealt with, in light of
the recent facts discovered about him.

The scene switches to Lan at Okuden. He and the rest of the gang are having
a camp. There's a trivial scene where Higsby is trying to fish (after
watching Lan's pro skills) and ending up falling in the river. Lan's
parents are also there and he is doing the errands he did before (for each
of the trio). Mayl wants a cutting knife again and Lan goes to his Mom and
gets one. After a random failed attempt to be romantic, Lan escapes from
the embarrassment of seeing his parents being lovey-dovey - only to find
out Chaud already gave Mayl a knife... Mayl is now confused about which
knife to choose. Chaud and Lan step aside and talk about how they are now
rivals. They shake hands and Lan goes to talk with Dr. Hikari.

Dr. Hikari says that someone had manipulated Shuryou from behind the scenes.
That chapter ends on a slightly unsettling note. Anyway, both get back to
the camp in time for food and when they are all eating, Ms. Mari emerges.
As she does so, she reminds the children about doing their homework. Lan
totally forgot! He tries to distract them all, but fails. The scene ends with
Lan jacking in. * This is the traditional Battle Network ending. *

*CUE CREDITS*

You see a few random scenes during the credits. Of particular interest is at
the end when Shuryou is surrounded by the gang, all now friends.

Afterwards...

The scene blackens. In some part of the Undernet (obvious from the music)
Bass is floating towards a warp point. Someone makes a comment about how
'insolents' shall face 'his judgement'. Bass is destroyed by what can only
be the Bass Buster. Another - the real Bass (for real) emerges. He makes a
comment about how some human (he mentions manipulated some brat - Shuryou)
idiotically (much to his disapproval) made copies of him. He cannot and
will not permit that. Bass makes a random comment about how humans shall
one day face his judgement and disappears (warps or something). The ending
is left with your time, Chip Library and MegaMan's Level. Press START.

As the beginning sequence of the game loads up again, when you are viewing
the menu after pressing START, next to CONTINUE is a Yellow Star. This is
your Star ID (remember, for the SS License?). And don't think that we're
almost done with the game completely, because you are still a long way off.
For good measure, save when you CONTINUE.

xii. Exploring the Undernet = (UNDER) =
     ======================
So - the maingame is complete. This is the point of the post-essential stages
of the game, where tasks must be completed to achieve 100%. This is possibly
the hardest stage of the game (duh).

One of the first things that must be taken underway is completely exploring
the Net. Sure, we've seen every part; generally speaking, enough to complete
the game successfully - but we haven't gone to the depths of the Undernet
yet. The Undernet possesses the best secrets of the game and this section is
designed to make the player familiar with every nook and cranny of the
extended Undernet that hasn't been explored thus far (Undernet 3 partially,
all the way to Undernet 7).

Return to the game, exit the entire Apartment building and return to Marine
Harbor. From here, return to ACDC Town and jack in at Lan's PC. Go into
the warp point to KotoSquare Entrance and enter UnderKoto. From here, make
your way to Undernet 3.

Follow the path and at the divergent area, follow the general direction of
right. You'll end up in a square area with a PMD that contains a SubMem.
Head up the ramp nearby. Notice anything? We've gone full circle around the
familiar region of the Undernet. We're at a crossroads with Undernet 2 and
Undernet 4, so the warp point you took is useful for reaching UnderSquare and
the areas beyond Undernet 3 as well. Once you're up the ramp, go right and
you'll eventually reach a sign that points the way to Undernet 4. It's
not as scary as it sounds... Go on through.

The viruses here are quite tough, so watch out. At the first fork, go left and
at the next fork, go left and around and enter the warp point. From where
you emerge, go directly right and unlock the mysterious SecurityCube with
GospCode. Follow the path along to the dead end with a BMD containing a
BugFrag. Backtrack to the warp point, head into it again and backtrack to
the last fork you were on. Instead of going left, go right this time. Follow
the path, bends in the path lead to dead ends. Enter the warp point and
from where you emerge, keep going to a dead end that sometimes has a GMD.
Backtrack all the way to the beginning of Undernet 4, but this time go
right. Follow the winding path and enter the warp point. From where you
emerge, head right. A barrier is blocking the way up north; you must have
the Star ID and have at least 130 chips in your Library. Ignore that for
now. Going down leads to a warp point to UnderSquare Entrance and just past
that is the way back to the entrance. Going right leads to Undernet 5, let's
head there.

From here, go straight along the path to find a PMD in a dead end containing
an Atk+20 *. Start heading up and you'll see an evil Navi who tells you that
he recommends you turn back. Yeah, right... Just keep heading up, along the
winding bends. There are many GMDs around. Make your way up and to the right,
ignoring the now inaccessible warp points and BMD. Head down and on the
bottom right of Undernet 5 you'll find the exit. Go through.

We're in Undernet 6 now, one of the deepest parts of the Net. Follow the
path and head down the ramp. The ramp next to you as you head down leads to
a dead end. Same case with the second ramp to your right; just a GMD. Go
up the third ramp to your right and open the SecurityCube that requires an
SLicense. Get the BMD here containing a RegUP2.

MegaMan 42MB

If you keep going up, you'll end up in Undernet 7, but let's not head there
just yet. Go back down the ramp and take the ramp to your right leading
down. At the first fork you see, go right, because going forward leads
back. Follow the path to see a program. Go right past him and concealed
under the view of the ramp above is a BugFrag. Go down from here and enter
the warp point you see. Follow the path to your left and you'll be back
on the other side of Undernet 5.

Enter the warp point you see and you'll be in the flashing middle zone of
Undernet 5. Get the BMDs nearby that contain an Unlocker and a BugFrag.
Backtrack through the warp point and return to Undernet 6.

Take the moving path to your right and you'll end up at the beginning of
this area.

I highly recommend not going to Undernet 7 at this stage, because most of
the viruses are extremely tough and you cannot escape most of the time. In
addition, you're not going to go very far in Undernet 7 without the SS and
SSSLicenses; you might as well stop right here. Don't worry, we'll be back
later on.

Before jacking out, make sure you get a PopUp D from Moles in Undernet 6 and
a FireAura R from MegalianH viruses found in Undernet 4. In case you were
wondering, you must play a game of 'Whack a Mole' to beat the Moles (hit
it 10 times, each time it pops up and quick! Before it escapes).

Once you've jacked out, go to Netopia and trade with the blonde man in the
Underground your PopUp D for his Blower P.

xiii. Green Star = (GREEN) =
      ==========
Remember how you got a Yellow Star for completing the game once? Well, there
are more stars. Five in total, in fact. We have the Yellow Star, now we are
going to get the Green Star, while doing a few other things.

First of all, I must point out that THE GLITCH that I have been referring to
several times before is in fact Gospel Duping, which you can now do. I
recommend taking the time to construct an extremely powerful Folder making
good use of Gospel Duping (refer to section: Gospel Duping). Your Folder
must be able to deal powerful damage in a single blow (Gater does NOT fit
this category). The damage must also have a wide range. These conditions
*must* be fulfilled for later on. Make good use of LifeSwrds if possible.
After making a few changes, this is how my folder looked like:
(30)
5 FireBlde R (Dupe KotoSquare)
5 AquaBlde R (Dupe UnderKoto)
5 ElecBlde R (Dupe Under1)
2 AreaGrab *
5 FullCust * PRESET
1 Roll R
1 RollV2 R
1 RollV3 R
3 Invis3 *
2 FstGauge * (Dupe UnderKoto)
*This Folder is customised in addition to the Gater Folder I made before*

We're all set. Remember in Undernet 4 there was a barrier blocking something?
That's where we are heading. First of all, get 130 chips (you can keep
track with your Library). You should have well over 100 by now, search around
and bust viruses until you have 130. Another easy way to build up your
Library is to visit a few shops. You may notice that the travelling
NumberMan is no longer in Netopia 2; rather he is now in Den Area 1. NumberMan
sells quite a lot of rare chips (somewhat expensive, of course). He resides
right next to the warp point that leads to the Netdealer in Den Area 1.

NumberMan Den Area 1
Recov120 O	4000
Elec+40 *	5000
CustSwrd B	7500
AntiFire T	8000
AntiElec H	9000
AntiWatr W	10000
Geddon1 S	10000
Geddon2 Z	14000

If you are strapped for cash, in Undernet 5 there is on occasions a GMD
containing 50000Z. Not bad. While you're at it, you might as well take a
final look at the Board Room and UnderBoard for rumours and other bits of
information.

Ready? Go to Undernet 4 to the area where the barrier was previously. Surprise,
surprise, it's no longer there. Follow the path up and there is an evil
Navi starting at an unusual warp point. He says that the area you are about
to go into cannot be jacked out of! Keep this in mind, seriously. Save and
then enter the warp point.

You are now *officially* in the deepest part of the Net; WWW Area. This is
where the real Bass we saw is located, so be on guard. I recommend taking
extreme care here. DO NOT SAVE anywhere inside! Many of the viruses are
strong and cannot be escaped from. Save at the beginning and hope you can
make it through (or alternatively, save often and don't regret it -
everything is luck in this area).

Advanced warning: If you see Protecto viruses, you must defeat them all at
once in a single blow. LifeSwrd does the trick most of the time. If there
is a hole in between, use AirShoes A (KotoSquare BugFrag dealer). Sometimes,
you will need another Program Advance (UltraBob, perhaps?) because they will
be too far spread out for LifeSwrd. Protectos guard the way to pretty much
anything that is even *remotely* good.

At the first fork go right. From here, head up and unlock the mysterious
SecurityCube you see that requires an SLicense. Keep going up and open yet
another mysterious SecurityCube that requires an SLicense. Head directly
up; to the right and around in a nook is a GMD. To the left is a barrier that
should be ignored for now. Straight up is a mysterious SecurityCube requiring
an SSLicense. Go back, down to your left and take the moving path back to the
beginning of WWW Area 1. We're going left now, to check out the area. Go
straight up as you go left and ignore the mysterious SecurityCube to your left,
as it requires an SSSLicense to access. Instead, go right at the next bend and
up. Keep going and at the next fork, go up; unless you want another GMD, in
that case go left. As you go up, you'll see yet another mysterious
SecurityCube that requires an SLicense. If you follow the path that veers off
to the left, you will be greeted by an evil Navi, who is in fact a Netdealer.

WWW Area 1 Netdealer
Trident E	20000
Tornado E	20000
Mine S		20000
FrntSnsr R	20000
DblSnsr R	20000
BblWrap R	20000
GodStone Q	50000

Yeesh. Very expensive, but very rare chips. If you keep going up (where the
SecurityCube had been blocking), you'll see a warp point. Enter it. You're
back in Den Area 1, except in the very middle of all the warp points. There
is a PMD next to you. Open it to receive ArmyData. We can now take that
SSLicense. I think we've had enough of the WWW Area for now, haven't we?
Jack out (from Den Area 1 it is possible).

Go to the Square and go over to the examiner to attempt the SS Examination.
There are two problems.

Problem 1 - Influenced by Gospel, four Navis have formed a gang called the
Black Navis. There are 4 members that must be eliminated while the gang is
small, before growing into a major criminal organisation. They are all black
and look very mean. One has been spotted in the Yumland area.

Go to Yumland 2, to the northern-most area where there are many moving
paths deviating from it (near where you rescued Roll). A purple Navi is
standing there. Talk to him. He's No. 4 of the Black Navis. He tells you
No. 3 is in Netopia, but before you can react he sends some viruses at you.

Sparknoid, Sparknoid, Twisty3

Definitely take care of the Sparknoids first and finally take out the Twisty.
This battle isn't difficult, but the ice stage makes their attacks more
damaging.

Go to Netopia 3, and at the beginning where you see multiple moving paths
heading down take the second from the right. Talk to No. 3. He says No. 2 is
in the Undernet and like before, sends viruses after you.

Flamey3, Flamey3, DeathFire

The Flamies should be deleted first and then DeathFire shall follow suit. There
isn't anything terribly difficult about this battle.

Go to Undernet 6. From the ramp you enter from (that goes down), take the
furthest ramp on the right leading up (in the direction of Undernet 7). From
going up, immediately go to the right to find No. 2 in the dead end here. He
says he and No. 1 will expand the Black Navis organisation around the world.
Both he and No. 1 who resides in Koto Area are especially strong. With that,
he launches more viruses at you.

Goofball, Goofball, Snapper

Don't stay in the same row as the Snapper. Apart from that, eliminate
both Goofballs with a LifeSwrd or something and the rest is easy.

Go to UnderKoto to where the Netdealer resides. On the way, on the big area
(where the Netdealer is) you will find No. 1. He isn't so disappointed that
his followers are deleted and asks MegaMan to join him. MegaMan refuses and
another battle begins.

Null&Void, Poofy, Puffy

They are all weak to electric attacks and since the Null&Void is standing on
ice... It makes the battle a little easier. Take out the Null&Void first and
focus on the Poofy. The Puffy is your last concern, despite the fact it is
(probably) the strongest virus in this battle.

Once you're done, return to the SSLicense Examiner in the Square.

Problem 2 - Survival battle, no HP recovery allowed in between battles

Battle 1 - Mettaur3, Mettaur3

No explanation necessary. These guys are dead easy.

Battle 2 - RedDevil, Shellman, Twisty2

Defeat the RedDevil first and the others will fall easily thereafter.

Battle 3 - Yurt, FullFire, Spooky2

The Yurt should be defeated first and the others go down with ease afterwards.

Battle 4 - Fishy3, Fishy2, Fishy3

We've done this before, but it isn't easy. The Fishy2 should be removed first
because of the grass stage. Evade the others and hit them when you can.

Battle 5 - Goofball, Shellnerd, Shellnerd

The Goofball was always going to be your biggest threat. The others are mere
distractions that are easy to defeat.

Battle 6 - Sparkler, Sparkler

There is nothing exceptionally difficult about this battle, apart from the
cracked terrain. Make sure you kill the Sparklers quickly.

Battle 7 - Dominerd3, StormBox

The cracked panels make this battle somewhat difficult. Eliminate the Dominerd
fast and then take your time on the StormBox.

Battle 8 - Flappy2, Flappy2, Flappy2

Yeesh. More cracked panels. Anyway, this battle isn't hard, just make sure
you aren't hit too much or trapped. That's the last thing you want to happen.

Battle 9 - Swordy3, Swordy3, KillPlant

Surprise, surprise, more cracked panels. Defeat the Swordies as fast as you
can and the KillPlant will be defeated soon after.

Battle 10 - Mettaur3, Mettaur3, Cloudy2

Even more cracked panels. Take care of the Mettaurs first.

Battle 11 - Spooky3, Spooky2, Spooky2

W00t! More than half-way... This battle is easy, apart from the ice. Stay in
the front and move to the back as they attack you.

Battle 12 - Dominerd, Dominerd, Dominerd

We've done this battle before, if you can remember. Take out the Dominerds
one at a time; lure them into attacking and hit them while they are vulnerable.

Battle 13 - MegaBunny, MegaBunny, Ratty3

Whatever you do, don't let the Bunnies hit you! The ice panels and paralysis
will make you reel in pain. Take out the Ratty ASAP if possible.

Battle 14 - Ratty3, Ratty3, DeathFire

Again, the Ratties are your main threat. The DeathFire will hide behind the
ice cube, but find your way around it with a LifeSwrd.

Battle 15 - Shrimpy3, Shrimpy3, Beetank2

Easy battle, except for the ice. Use the weakness to electricity to your
advantage. As usual, the Beetank should be defeated last.

Battle 16 - Canodumb3, Canodumb3, Beetank3

A very easy battle if I say so myself. No terrain changes. Kill the Canodumbs
to free up some room and take out the Beetank with no trouble.

Battle 17 - Dominerd2, Flappy2, Flappy2

Another easy battle... Just make sure you kill the Dominerd ASAP before he
uses a Geddon on you.

Battle 18 - Spikey3, Spikey3, Flamey3

All is good... Except for the bomb. Invis3, anyone? Anyway, I highly recommend
taking out the Spikies and then focus on Mr. Flamey.

Battle 19 - Sparknoid, Shrimpy3, Popper

Take out the Sparknoid first and the Popper last. Apart from that, nothing
here is exceptionally hard (surprisingly). Don't screw up now you are so
close to the end.

Battle 20 - Spooky3, Bluegon, HardHead 3

Kill the Spooky and HardHead quickly. As the Bluegon appears (from the holes)
kill it when it attacks.

Congratulations! You will receive an SSLicense and a RegUP1.

MegaMan 43MB

While we're at it, we might as well get the SSSLicense so we can explore
Undernet 7 in greater depth afterwards. Talk to the examiner yet again.

Problem 1 - Find and NetBattle a person. The person is a character called
the Navi Master, said to control all the world's Navis. You must follow
all the hints.

Hint 1: "A signboard that smells of sea air"
Go to Marine Harbor and look at the board near the waitress.

Hint 2: "Great jug beyond the four cedars"
Go to Okuden Dam and look in the dead end concealed by trees for an Official.

Hint 3: "Big Bird Brain"
Go to the Cockpit of the Airplane and examine the monitor with purple
radiating light.

Hint 4: "The place overlooking different cultures"
Go to the Watchtower in Netopia Castle and talk to the uniformed lady.

Hint 5: "One of the coffins of things cast away from humans"
Go to the Underground in Netopia and examine the trash dump container second
from the left.

Hint 6: "Kingdom in cyberforest. Object in center of treasury"
Go to YumSquare and go to where you found Chng.bat. Talk to the Official Navi.

Hint 7: "Something that plays a sound"
Jack into Mayl's Piano and go to the top left corner. Talk to the purple Navi.

Hint 8: "My natural parents"
Go to Dad's Lab and talk to Dr. Hikari.

Dr. Hikari will reveal himself as the Navi Master. Prepare to battle as Lan
challenges him to a Netbattle!

GutsManV2
ToadManV2
GateManV2
ThunderManV2
SnakeManV2
HeatManV2
ProtoManV2

Everyone here should be a piece of cake, except for maybe ThunderMan. After
you're done, return to the examiner.

Problem 2 - Survival battle, no HP recovery permitted in between battles

Battle 1 - Mettaur2, Mettaur2, Mettaur3
No explanation necessary, I'm sure.

Battle 2 - Swordy3, Mashy, KillWeed
Take out the Swordy and the rest will follow.

Battle 3 - Fishy3, DeathFire
The lava panels make this battle a little tougher than normal. Use Invisible
for defence and hit away. Neutralise the lava with aqua attacks if possible.

Battle 4 - BlueDemon, Canodumb3, Canodumb3
Take down the Demon first and the others shall follow.

Battle 5 - CanDevil2, Fishy2
More lava = more pain. Don't get overwhelmed and everything will be OK.

Battle 6 - BlueUFO, HardHead2, Cloudy2
Ice panels can work in your favour. Take out the UFO, then the Cloudy and
finally the HardHead.

Battle 7 - Magmacker, Magmacker, Beetank2
Once again, don't get overwhelmed. None of the enemies are too tough.

Battle 8 - MegaBunny, Mettaur3, Flappy3
This battle is dead easy. Don't get paralysed and handle the Mettaur last.

Battle 9 - Sparknoid
Take care to avoid the swamp and the rest is easy.

Battle 10 - Fishy2, Fishy2, WindBox
More swamps. Avoid (the Wind plays a part) the swamp and take care of the
Fishies.

Battle 11 - Handy3, Handy3, HardHead
Joy, more swamp. Handies should be taken care of ASAP.

Battle 12 - Beetank3
The holes make this battle a more difficult one from the past. Ranged attacks
are a must.

Battle 13 - Swordy2, Swordy2, DeathFire
The grass panels mean their attacks are doubled, but they are easy enemies.

Battle 14 - Ratty2, Ratty2, Poofy
By all means, eliminate the Ratties first.

Battle 15 - RedUFO, BlueUFO, RedUFO
Easy. Make sure they don't steal your chips... That's all.

Battle 16 - DeathFire, Spooky3
Easy except for the lava. Bypass it with an Invisible and then take them
apart.

Battle 17 - Yurt, Yart, VacuumFan
The Fan makes trouble. If you get hit, take the time to heal before defeating
the Fan. Make sure you kill the Yurt/Yart before they pin you to death.

Battle 18 - Mettaur3, StormBox, Beetank2
Take care of distractions and handle the Beetank last.

Battle 19 - Dominerd, Dominerd, VacuumFan
It's all good except for the Fan and the swamp. Use Invisible and kill
the Fan ASAP.

Battle 20 - Dominerd2, Dominerd2
Kill them before Geddon strikes. A normal plain makes this battle tolerable.

Battle 21 - MegalianA, MegalianH, MegalianW
You've faced these guys... Take down their auras and the battle becomes
easy.

Battle 22 - Flappy3, Spooky3, Flappy3
Another easy battle. No assistance is required, right?

Battle 23 - Fishy2, Spikey
Light up their bomb before they light up yours. Easy.

Battle 24 - Sparknoid, Mettaur3
The ice makes this battle a little difficult, but you should find it relatively
easy *again*.

Battle 25 - Mettaur, Handy3, Handy3
The magnets are your only obstruction, aside from that this battle is easy.

Battle 26 - Ratty3, Ratty3, Ratty3
Another easy battle; make sure the Ratties are dead FAST.

Battle 27 - GreenUFO, Beetank3, Twisty3
The holes are a headache, but aside from that, this battle is easy.

Battle 28 - Yart, Shellman, Shellman
More holes, but overall an easy battle. Make sure Yart goes down first.

Battle 29 - Swordy3, Cloudy3, Snapper2
The Swordy and Cloudy must be defeated first for an easy time. Lure the
Snapper out and finish it.

Battle 30 - HardHead3, Yellowgon, HardHead3
Take out the HardHeads before you are trapped. When the Yellowgon strikes,
finish it.

Boy, they went easy on us towards the end! You'll receive an SSSLicense and
a RegUP1. Congratulations, you are now a top-ranked city Netbattler!

MegaMan 44MB

Now it's time to head back to Undernet 7. When you reach there, head straight
up and you'll be met with a crossroads of sorts. Go right, down and around
to find a BMD containing a GrassStg H. Take the moving path to the left.
Unlock the mysterious SecurityCube just north of here that requires an SSS
License. Go up and go left, all the way around to a PMD in an area that
contains a SilvFist L. Backtrack all the way down and left to end up at
the crossroads. Now head up and left to another mysterious SecurityCube.
Show your SSLicense to advance. Go up and open the next mysterious
SecurityCube that requires an SSSLicense. Go all the way up and around to
get a BMD containing a Recov300 R. Backtrack to the crossroads again. Go
left this time and keep going until you see another multi-fork. Go
directly right and open the mysterious SecurityCube that requires an
SSLicense. Go past it and turn left at the next fork. Open the mysterious
SecurityCube you see with your SSSLicense. Get the PMD past it containing an
AntiSwrd H. Backtrack to the previous fork. The other forks (ie. straight -
from the beginning fork and left) lead to GMDs. If you attempt to take the
GMD in the corner to the western-most point of Undernet 7, you will encounter
the ghost of FreezeMan.

Apart from that, you are done here, so jack out!

* You might want to spend some time in Undernet 7 and Undernet 4 obtaining
the Auras for the girl in Netopia Airport.

All that is left now is to return to WWW Area. We're getting pretty close to
getting that Green Star now. I recommend you defeat every single Navi/ghost
and get all their chips (V1, V2 and V3) and make sure you have over 200 Chips
in your Library so that you can complete the WWW Area in one fair swoop.

Trade your Auras with the girl in Netopia Airport for UnderSht N and when
you have the ShadowMan series, trade with the black boy in the airplane
First Class section for an AntiDmg S.

Don't forget to visit the statue in Yai's house for a BugFrag. There's also
another one in Dex's PC now.

Ready? Return to WWW Area 1. If you go left and follow the path past the
now accessible mysterious SecurityCube (that required an SSSLicense) you will
find a BMD that contains a LavaStage V. If you make your way up the right
way (towards the barrier) you will find another mysterious SecurityCube that
you can now open with your SSLicense. Get the BMD behind that contains a
BugFrag. Now, go over to the barrier. You must be level 70 or beyond to
advance. Unlock the barrier and a guardian Navi will appear...

>> BOSS: PHAROAHMAN <<
1200HP
Sarcophagus Beam: The two sarcophaguses protecting him will align themselves
with your row and fire a green beam.

Black Box: PharoahMan summons a black box to crush you.

Pharoah Trap: PharoahMan sets a trap. Meteors will rain down in your area
if you hit the switch.

Fire Rat: The two sarcophaguses protecting him shoot a Fire Rat at you.

Wind: The two sarcophaguses blow wind to make you activate the trap.

At this stage of the game, PharoahMan should cause no problems. Avoid his
attacks and finish him with your best Program Advances.

With his demise, PharoahMan says his spirit will rest here. You can now
advance past the barrier to...

WWW Area 2. Move right and down the moving path. Take the path immediately
to the right of where you come down to and keep going straight up. Go
left when you have to and instead of taking the moving path left again,
go straight up and get the PMD in the dead end containing an OldWood W. Go
down back to the beginning and head down again. This time take the
moving path besides the one you've been to (third from the left). Keep
going straight up and at the next three-pronged fork go right. Get the
BMD containing a FullEnrg. If you want, the other forks (at the beginning)
lead to random GMDs and dead ends that you may want to explore. Otherwise,
head up and through the warp point. Go left and open the mysterious
SecurityCube that requires an SSLicense. There is a barrier up ahead that
requires that you possess every single Navi chip in the game except for
PharoahMan, NapalmMan, PlanetMan and Bass. Unlock the barrier and another
guardian shall emerge...

>> BOSS: NAPALMMAN <<
1400HP
Element: Fire
Weakness: Aqua
Machine Guns: Two machine guns that are homing (similar to Canodumb) emerge
and fire down the rows they appear on. Dodge.

Napalm Fire: NapalmMan fires consecutive bombs that crack and burn on impact.
Dodge if possible.

Napalm Bomb: NapalmMan targets the centre of your area with a giant
crosshair and launches a massive bomb. Dodge by heading to the corners.

NapalmMan is very easy if you defeat him quickly. Most of his attacks are
easy to avoid, it's just that he uses multiple attacks at once and it proves
distracting. Gater, LifeSwd3 and whatever else you can muster. Use Invisibles
for valuable defence.

Once NapalmMan is taken care of, advance to WWW Area 3.

NOTE: Any mysterious SecurityCubes are omitted (from being said, break
through them as you have to) to make my life easier for this last section.
Go down and then turn left. Go all the way left, head down the ramp you see
and follow the path. Take the appropriate BMDs. More BMDs present themselves
as you go up the next ramp to a much bigger ramp. The BMDs include
AntiNavi X, a BugFrag, Navi+40 * and GrassStge H. Go up the ramp and go left
at the very top. Make sure you get the PMD along the way containing the final
SubMem in the game. Proceed through the warp point and you will find another
gate. You must have at least 200 Chips in your Library. If you do so, you
can unlock the barrier and the final guardian will greet you...

>> BOSS: PLANETMAN <<
1600HP
Element: Wood
Weakness: Heat
Elemental Orbs: Two random elemental orbs surround him. They are NEVER the
same element as your Style Change. The heat orb uses a Fire Tower, the aqua
orb uses an Aqua Tower, the electric orb uses an electric ball. When he is
on *very* low HP, he uses a wood orb to heal his HP.

Summon Rocket: PlanetMan summons a rocketship to fire at you. It repetitively
fires down each row until it is destroyed.

Cosmic Rain: PlanetMan becomes black like a black hole. He sucks you towards
him and meteors start flying towards you from the back-most row he possesses.

PlanetMan's orbs are mere distractions. Due to his distinct weakness to wood,
you will have an easier time. Again, defence comes in handy (ie. Invisible).

PlanetMan is defeated. Try to escape from WWW Area 1 to be greeted with a
nasty surprise!

>> BOSS: BASS <<
2000HP Aura 100 regenerative
Bass Buster: Bass sends a ball of gunfire down one row. Dodge quickly.

When he charges -
Yellow; Bass Barrage: Bass charges up his twin guns and fires a massive number
of shots along the rows. Energy balls travel across the rows. This is almost
impossible to avoid.

Blue; Infinite Buster: Bass charges up his twin guns and fires shots in an
"8" formation. This is also very difficult to avoid.

Red; Super Bass Barrage: Bass does the same thing as his Bass Barrage except
the shots now appear in your area. This is also almost impossible to avoid.

Earthbreaker: Bass charges up his hand and appears in front of you. He strikes
the panel you are on (or were on), cracking the panel and dealing massive
damage.

Doesn't look good, does it? The ultimate boss of the game has a massive
arsenal of attacks now. All of his attacks are high-damaging, he is very
hard to damage AND most of his attacks are almost impossible to avoid. Use
your best Program Advances and use plenty of Invisibles to your advantage.

Congratulations, you have received the Green Star!

Once you have obtained 247/250 Chips, return to WWW Area 3 and you will
randomly encounter Bass SP. He is exactly the same as Bass, except that
he now has a stronger aura (instead of 100 he has 150). He is also more
vicious, so watch out.

A few notes:
* I forgot a few MB along the way. Collect the last few and you're done.
* BugFrag locations could not be accurately described, because no one
really knows much about them. Are they random? How many are there? These
questions remain unanswered.

xiv. Five Star Quest = (STARS) =
     ===============
There are actually Five Stars available (to go next to your File as a sign
of accomplishment). If you manage to get them all, you can access Hard
Mode (refer to Hard Mode). The Five Stars are:

Blue: Complete your PA Memo; Darkness is not required (refer to Program
Advance Memo)

Green: Defeat Bass (real) once

Purple: Obtain all 10 Secret Chips by Netbattling & winning (refer to Secret
Chips)

Red: Obtain all 250 in-game Chips available (refer to Chip Library)

Yellow: Defeat Gospel & watch the ending

xv. HubStyle = (HUBST) =
    ========
HubStyle is the ultimate style change for MegaMan. "Hub" refers to MegaMan's
original name, as the twin of Lan (before his premature death). Thus, the
reason for HubStyle being the best style in the game is because the two
brothers MegaMan and Lan have fully synchronised to bring out an ultimate,
unstoppable power.

HubStyle is obtained by S ranking the V3 versions of every single Navi in the
game, with the exception of Bass SP.

You will notice in ACDC Town a new young girl that appears in the Park, behind
the trees near ACDC Elementary. She can tell you which Navis of V3 you have
S ranked, so you can keep track.

Once you have S ranked the Navis once, it will always be counted.

The Navis that are required to be S ranked and their corresponding V3 locations
are:
GutsManV3 & Dex: Dex's house, or Kotobuki Town once you have visited the
Apartment once.
ToadManV3 & Ribitta: Marine Harbor
GateManV3 & Mr. Famous: Official Center
ThunderManV3 & Raoul: Netopia Underground
SnakeManV3 & Mrs. Millions: Jewelry Shop
ProtoManV3 & Chaud: Okuden Dam (during "Worldwide Disasters" scenario) or
Netopia Park (anytime after the beginning of "Storming Gospel" scenario)
HeatManV3 & Mr. Match: Den Airport, Boarding Room
AirManV3: Den Area 1 randomly after defeating AirManV2
QuickManV3: Koto Area randomly after defeating QuickManV2
CutManV3: Yumland Area 2 randomly after defeating CutManV2
ShadowManV3: Undernet 5 randomly after defeating ShadowManV2
KnightManV3: Netopia 1 randomly after defeating KnightManV2
MagnetManV3: Undernet 2 randomly after defeating MagnetManV2
FreezeManV3: Undernet 7 randomly after defeating FreezeManV2
PharoahManV3: WWW Area 1 randomly after defeating PharoahManV2
NapalmManV3: WWW Area 2 randomly after defeating NapalmManV2
PlanetManV3: WWW Area 3 randomly after defeating PlanetManV2

Remember the following:
- These V3 Navis can always be challenged again, so don't stress if you fail
to S rank them on your first attempt
- After defeating V2 Navis, in order for the V3 Navis to appear you must jack
out and jack in again

HubStyle is devestating, because it possesses the power of every other Style
in the game. The only difference is that it is of neutral element. Its
powers include:

Shield
------
- The battle begins with MegaMan surrounded by a barrier that can nullify a
hit completely
- MegaMan can generate a Guard-like shield by pressing Back + B

Team
----
- MegaMan can hold up to 8 Navi chips in his Folder

Custom
------
- MegaMan begins the battle with 10 Chips available to him through the
Custom Bar Menu

Guts
----
- MegaMan's attack power is doubled (for instance, 5 Attack becomes 10)
- MegaMan's rapid power is automatically reduced to 1
- MegaMan cannot flinch

Additionals
-----------
- MegaMan's HP is reduced by half (if you have 1000HP, it is reduced to 500)
- MegaMan's Charged Megabuster is the same as is without Style changes (but
due to double attack he deals 50 damage instead of 25)

HubStyle can only be obtained ONCE. Never delete it!

xvi. Hard Mode = (HARD!) =
     =========
Once you have obtained all Five Stars, a Hard Mode can be accessed.

Highlight (point to, but don't select) NEW GAME and enter the following code:
Left, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right, Right

Select NEW GAME

You will begin Hard Mode. Save when you get the chance.

Your Standard Mode file will remain intact, so don't worry about it.

There are a few differences between Hard Mode and Standard Mode:
- Enemies have 150% of the normal HP, making them extra difficult
- You cannot Netbattle/Network at all

It seems somewhat pointless right? Maybe not. If you defeat Gospel in Hard
Mode (thus complete the game) you will receive a Sanctuary chip for both
files (it will be present as a new chip in your Pack). Sanctuary is the final
chip in the game. Congratulations if you complete Hard Mode successfully!

_______________________________________________________________________________
Well, that is all for the walkthrough. I hoped you enjoyed playing MegaMan
Battle Network 2 and completing it 100%! Congratulations!

                             IV. CAST = (CASTC) =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Meet the main characters and navis of MegaMan Battle Network 2.

i. Characters = (CHARS) =
   ==========
The cast of characters in MegaMan Battle Network 2.

LAN HIKARI
----------
The main character and hero of the MegaMan Battle Network series. He's brave,
but somewhat brash and dense. Typical hero mould. He teams up with his Navi,
MegaMan.EXE to take down the netmafia organisations.

MEGAMAN.EXE
-----------
Lan's Navi and the guy who actually does all the work even though Lan gets all
the credit :/ MegaMan is very strong support for Lan and is his best friend.
As a PET, he also keeps track of Lan's life and helps him out. MegaMan is
actually Lan's twin brother Hub, who died of a disease when he was young.
His DNA was infused into MegaMan. So the twins live on... Across two
different worlds.

MAYL SAKURAI
------------
Childhood friend of Lan's and his love interest. She's the same age as Lan
and her Navi, Roll.EXE is a good friend of MegaMan's. She constantly is
worried and looking out for Lan.

DEX
---
A big, fat boy with a mohawk 'fishead' haircut. He's the bully of ACDC
Elementary, but he doesn't bully much anymore. He's just fat and useless for
the most part of the game.

YAI AYANO
---------
An eight-year old prodigy who is slightly eccentric. She's a snob, but
extremely intelligent AND filthy rich.

HARUKA HIKARI
-------------
Lan's mother. Like any mother, she is loving but strict trying to raise one
hellraiser of a son. She provides useful advice at stages in the game. She's
a homemaker.

YUUICHIRO HIKARI
----------------
Lan's father, world renowned scientist. He made PETs and his own father is
famous for creating the current Net. Looks like genius runs in the family...
and stops at Lan. Anyway, he's constantly busy, but his knowledge proves
useful to Lan on his adventures.

EUGENE CHAUD
------------
World renowned as a prodigal Netbattler. He is the youngest ever Netbattler to
become an Official (for your information, he is younger than Lan slightly).
He is also Lan's rival, but his focus is on saving the world. He's very
arrogant and normally shows up to make Lan look bad.

HIGSBY
------
New owner of the Chip Shop in ACDC. He's a somewhat strange guy, but helpful
when it is required. His Navi, NumberMan.EXE, hangs around selling rare chips
on the Net.

MR. FAMOUS
----------
A world-renowned Netbattler who is not only profoundly talented in Netbattling,
but also is a prolific scientist. His Net Navi is GateMan.

RIBITTA
-------
A DNN News Reporter that travels the world. She also loves netbattling. Her
Net Navi is ToadMan, which suits her love for toads (the whole theme T.T).

MR. MATCH
---------
The former WWW member makes an appearance! He enters late in the game, but
he is looking to test himself and Lan with his new Net Navi, HeatMan.

GOSPEL
------
The new netmafia organisation that is actually more organised and powerful
than the WWW.

SHURYOU
-------
The child who is head of Gospel. Manipulated by Wily, his genius has been used
to create an empire even more powerful than the WWW. Shuryou attempts to create
the Super Navi, Bass.EXE.

^ The above cast are the main characters, a few minors are omitted.

ii. Navis = (NAVIS) =
    =====
Meet the Net Navis of the game.

>Good/Neutral Navis<

MEGAMAN.EXE
-----------
The main hero. He forms the dynamic duo along with Lan that constantly (and
I mean constantly, as in every day of damn life) saves the world.

GUTSMAN.EXE
-----------
A yellow ape-like Net Navi whose operator is Dex. Like Dex, he's dumb but
big. He's one of the easiest Net Navis you'll ever face, because he's
VERY S L O W.

ROLL.EXE
--------
MegaMan's love interest, everything about her says 'girly'. She needs to
rescued a lot and always is asking for "Mega"'s help. She actually likes to
flirt a lot with MegaMan and the other boys in the gang (after all, she's
the only female out of Glide, GutsMan and MegaMan).

PROTOMAN.EXE
------------
The humble servant of Chaud, in his own words. Uses lethal and powerful blows
from his sword to do the talking. He is very loyal, very strong and normally
(wait - make that ALWAYS) makes really cool entrances and performs complicated
and cool-looking manouevers. He actually helps, unlike the other sacks of
crap in the game. Although, even then he still doesn't do ALL THAT much.

NUMBERMAN.EXE
-------------
A Navi specialising in numbers that sells rare chips later in the game.

GATEMAN.EXE
-----------
GateMan is Mr. Famous's Navi. Like ProtoMan, he has a crazy amount of cool
moves, but he relies on Mr. Famous and NEVER EVER helps save the world.
Mr. Famous believes training NetBattlers is the way to save the world
instead.

TOADMAN.EXE
-----------
Ribitta's ideal match due to her love of frogs/toads. VERY annoying...

HEATMAN.EXE
-----------
Mr. Match's new and hotter Net Navi, HeatMan is FireMan's replacement. He's
a lot stronger, faster and more brutal. He can also tank pretty well. Good
call by Match...

* Not every neutral Navi is included in the above bio, simply because they
don't really do much apart from fighting. This includes ThunderMan and
SnakeMan.

>Evil Navis<

AIRMAN.EXE
----------
The first Gospel Navi to rear his ugly face, AirMan blows wind to blow enemies
away. Operated by Arashi. A typical Gospel goon if there ever was one.

QUICKMAN.EXE
------------
A speedy Gospel Navi that is operated by IQ 170 'Speedy Dave'. QuickMan isn't
afraid to resort to any measure to defeat foes, including suicide.

CUTMAN.EXE
----------
Gospel's Vice Commander, who takes care of any survivors who somehow made it
through Gospel's attacks. Another underling.

SHADOWMAN.EXE
-------------
Operated by Dark, a professional mercenary hired to take down the strongest
security systems in the world. He's quick and deadly, pulling moves only a
ninja can use.

KNIGHTMAN.EXE
-------------
A gallant Net Navi under the orders of Princess Pride of Yumland to do Gospel's
bidding. He isn't doing anything wrong except following his operator's orders.
He's big, with amazing defence and offence but very very S L O W.

MAGNETMAN.EXE
-------------
An even more dangerous electric Net Navi than ThunderMan under Gauss, a rich
man in charge of Gauss Inc. He uses magnetism to attract and repel foes into
traps.

FREEZEMAN.EXE
-------------
Commander of Gospel and guardian of Gospel's HQ, FreezeMan is quite frankly
weak. He just looks tough, but ice is just plain pathetic.

GOSPEL SUPERBUG
---------------
Not a Navi, but the result of Sean's failed attempts to replicate Bass.EXE.
A strong and ferocious bug organism that basically flings debris around and
causes chaos with Gospel's remains.

PHAROAHMAN.EXE, NAPALMMAN.EXE, PLANETMAN.EXE
--------------------------------------------
The three guardians of the WWW Secret Area. They guard something
astonishing...

BASS.EXE
--------
Undeniably the most powerful Net Navi in existence. Many try and fail to gain
his power... Only a few have ever encountered his real form.

v. Requests = (REQST)
   ========
Once you become a City Netbattler, you are able to take on requests that are
posted on the Request Board, which is located on the lower level of the
Official Center. Requests are often dangerous but result in nice rewards.

Request: Need help
Info:    Could you please find a lost girl, a relative of mine? I'm waiting
at the school in ACDC Town.
Solving: Go to ACDC Elementary and talk to the girl next to the blackboard.
Her cousin has wandered off somewhere and she is worried, so she wants you
to find her. She says that she may have used the Metroline to go somewhere.
Go to Marine Harbor. From Ribitta's location, head up to where a boy is
staring at her (Ribitta). Behind him is a little girl. Talk to her. She
says that Sis worries too much and that she can take care of herself. Head
back to ACDC Elementary to the girl. You'll get a RegUP1.

Request: At the cafe
Info:    I'm waiting in the cafe with an ocean view. I'll explain the job
to you in person. There is some danger involved, so your navi must be
strong.
Solving: Talk to the man with an orange jumper just near the Marine Harbor
Station. He wants a navi deleted. It's in Den Area and is spreading viruses
to programs everywhere. Go to Den Area 2 (fastest way is from the Center
Host Computer) to the warp point that leads to the Square Entrance. An evil
navi is there. Talk to him. He'll get pissed and send some viruses after you.

Fishy, Fishy, MettFire

Take care of the Fishies first, because they are the real threat. The MettFire
is more of a distraction than anything, his meteors rarely hit.

After that, head back to the man. He is actually an Official, but hired a
city Netbattler to stay undercover. He'll give you a HPMemory.

Request: Mission1
Info: I really need help. I'd rather discuss it in person than on this board.
I need help from a good virus buster. I'm waiting in front of ACDC Town
St.
Solving: Go to ACDC Town. Talk to the scientist right next to the entrance to
the Station from Town. He was testing some experimental Navis and they ran
away. There are 3 Navis located in the ACDC Town network. They're not in
the main Net yet. He wants you to delete them but he warns you that they will
send viruses.

First off, head to Dex's house and jack into the GBA. Head to the top left
corner and talk to the evil Navi there. Enter battle...

Handy, Handy, Handy

It's not difficult, but a little hard if you don't want to get hit. Take one
down reasonably quickly with a sword and bide your time hitting their bombs.
Mass-targetting attacks like GutsManV2 will hurt them badly. Now, after that
jack out.

Go to the park and jack into the toy robot lying on the ground. Once again,
go to the top left corner and confront the evil Navi here. More viruses!

Spikey2, Spikey2, Spikey2

Treat them as Spikies with a little extra HP. Lure them to one row and hit
them with ShockWaves. Swords are very useful too. After this, jack out.

Go to ACDC Elementary and jack into the BlackBoard. Go to the top left
corner and confront the evil Navi here.

Flamey2, Flamey3

Flamies are a pain, but the best way is to hit them with chips that don't
involve entering the same row as them. This includes WideSwrds and GutsMan.
Oh, don't forget Roll either. The Flamey3 may move to your row, so watch
out. Jack out.

Head back to the scientist. He'll say that he is an examiner and he saw your
amazing (yeah...right) busting techniques. He'll reward you with a RegUP1.

Request: Mission2
Info:   I have a very simple request. First, come to KotoSquare! Meet up with
a kinda mean-looking Navi.
Solving: Go to Ribitta's van. Jack in and head to Den Area 3. Grab anything
you missed from the Den Area 3 Netdealer and head along that path towards
the Koto Area. The pathway is no longer blocked, so head on through.

You're now in Koto Area for the first time! It looks a little strange. There's
a sign up ahead that says to go left. So head left. Head around the corner,
collect the GMD in the dead end as you pass. Keep heading around on the main
purple path. Keep going, don't wander into corners just yet. Head up onto
the elevated level and continue along the moving path. Along this lower
level, follow it down to the warp point. Before entering, go past the
purple navi here and take the BMD in that lone dead end for a LongSwrd L.
VERY USEFUL indeed... Head back into the warp point. You may want to train
up against some of the viruses around for some interesting chips.

You're now in KotoSquare Entrance. Head along the blue path. If you head
down, a moving path blocks the way to somewhere. Head up to the top right
of the area and enter the warp point here.

Finally, go down and in one of the little dead ends, there is an evil-looking
navi. He wants you to jack into the Coffee Machine in the Center. There's
a navi in there who stole his program that is very valuable, so he wants
you to retrieve it. Jack out.

Go into the Center and jack into the coffee machine to your left as you
enter the main entrance. Head to the top of the area; just head straight
from where you entered and you'll see an evil Navi. He'll give OddProg and
then send some viruses after you.

Spooky2, Spooky2, Spooky2

Slightly difficult, just dodge as necessary. In the mean time, hit them with
general mass-targetting attacks like GutsMan. Roll does well as well. Time
your WideSwrd strikes to hit them and they will die too. Beware: take them
out in a single hit or they will recover again! After they're defeated, jack
out and go to Ribitta's van. Make the journey all the way back to KotoSquare
again. Talk to the evil-looking Navi for the final time. She is actually
an examiner and the program was actually for you! You'll receieve a nice
gift, Recov30 *.

Request: Mission3
Info:    Help find a lost program! Come to the Okuden Valley campgrounds
for details. I'm standing in the middle of the river.
Solving: Go to Okuden and make the distance to the Camp area. From here,
hug the river until you see a man with a bandana standing on a rocky
path. Talk to him. His son's program is lost on the Net. It's in Den
Area. Now, leave Okuden and head to ACDC Town.

Go to Dex's house and jack into his PC. From here, make your way to Den
Area 3. You'll notice a program wandering around. Talk to it. He's the
program we've been looking for. Jack out and head back to the Camp area. The
man is yet another examiner. He'll give you a HPMemory.

Request: Chip please!
Info:    Our water heating program is busted. We've no hot water. Do you have
lots of chips? Can you give me a 'FireSwrd F'? Of course, I'll give you a
'Slasher L' in return. I'm in the lobby of the Center, so look for me there.
First person that comes gets the goods.
Solving: Go upstairs and there's a fat lady near the stairs. You need a
FireSwrd F. You need to fight Swordy2's to get it. The easiest way to get
this chip is in Mother Computer. It's rare in Kotobuki, but possible to
obtain this chip there as well. In exchange, she'll give you a Slasher L.
She can now have her hot bath again (bad image - bad image...)

Request: Paying in advance
Info: I'll pay in advance, with an item you won't get elsewhere. The job
is easy, and the reward is great - act now! If you're interested then
hurry over to Yumland 1! My black Navi is waiting for you there.
Solving: Head to Yumland 1, the fastest way is from Dex's PC. Talk to the
purple Navi looking at the sign that leads to Yumland 2. He'll immediately
give you GateKeyB. He'll then reveal his true self: a thief who preys on
City Netbattlers! He sets the bait with his request, steals their chips
when their guard is down after getting their reward and sells the chips on
the black market. Naturally, you aren't going to surrender that easily!
Enter virus battle...

Sparky, Flamey2, Flamey2

It's a good idea to defeat a Flamey first to free up a little space. Take out
the Sparky thereafter and delete the last Flamey with little trouble. Now,
after the battle you're free to leave with your prize!

Request: Need a Cupid
Info: I've fallen madly in love! The problem is, I'm too shy to come out and
say it! Somebody help me out, please! Please come to the campground entrance.
Solving: Go to Okuden. At the entrance, there's an old man. Speak to him. He
wants to confess his love for her but he cannot. MegaMan suggests writing
a love letter and he does so. He says she is in a place where flowers bloom,
because she loves them. Her nickname is Sunflower. Lan will then receive the
LoveLetr.

Now, head to Marine Harbor. There's a lady in the green patch with flowers in
the middle of the area (just next to the steps). She is Sunflower, talk to her.
She says to Lan to tell him to 'Start as a friend'. Return to Okuden. Talk to
the old man and he'll be ecstatic. He'll reward you with 10000Z... Very useful
indeed.

Request: For male pride
Info:    I am going to Netbattle a guy. The problem is, I may lose. Can
someone help me out here? I'm waiting at the entrance to the Square. Please,
save my male pride from embarrassment. Help me!!!
Solving: Head on over to the Square Entrance, any way you see fit. Talk to
the pink navi in the top left corner near the way to the Square. He is
going to Netbattle his rival and wants you to spy on him. He's training in
the cyberworld, but not on the Net. He has found a quiet place to relax
and train. Jack out and head to Okuden. From here, go to Camp Road 2 and
jack into the Guardian. Once inside, go to the bottom left corner and talk
to the green Navi. He's training hard, so he's the one. Select the options
'I'm a fan' and 'What is your plan?' (at least that's what I did - I
don't think it matters). He says that he will confuse his opponent with
his speed and that he has no plan. He also refuses to say his weak point.
Return all the way to the Square Entrance to the pink navi. He says he will
counter with a high damaging, accurate chip. He then asks you for the chip
Satelite1 G. If you were paying attention to the walkthrough, I told you to
get one from Yumland 1 a while back. If not, bust Sparkies in Yumland 1 and
get a decent rank to get one. He'll happily accept it and give you your
reward; a RegUP2.

Request: Detective job
Info:    Looking for someone. If you can help, come to ACDC Town. I'm
waiting in front of the squirrel.
Solving: Go to ACDC Town and head over to the Park. Head over to the man in
an office attire. He shows Lan a picture of a black guy with sunnies. When
you see him, he asks you to ask what he is doing. After that, he asks you to
report back to him. Go to the Metroline Station and go to Okuden.

Go all the way to the Dam and near Chaud you'll see him looking towards the
dam control center. Talk to him and he says he is sight-seeing. Go all the
way back to ACDC Town Park and report to the man. He says the guy you talked
to is wanted and dangerous. He'll reward you with a Twister Y. He then
reveals he is a detective (well, duh).

Request: Sell me a chip!
Info: I'm leaving the country on a trip & need a strong chip. Can someone sell
me a "Catcher N"? I'll pay in cash. I'm waiting at Den Airport.
Solving: In order to do this task, you'll first need a Catcher N. The virus
that drops it is the UFO and they are only accessible at this point in the
Air Comp. When it is accessible (any time after 'Aerial Assault' scenario)
go to the Airplane and make your way to the Cockpit. Jack in and go through
the first teleporter to Air Comp3. Find a RedUFO virus and S rank it. You
will receive a Catcher N chip. Return using the FreePass through to the
beginning of the Airport and talk to the blonde Netopian man. He will
reward you with a massive 50000Z!

Request: Help reconcile us
Info:    My Navi ran away because we argued the day before last. Can somebody
please find my Navi? I'm waiting at the ACDC Town station. please help (there
is a grammar error in the game here).
Solving: Head to ACDC Town Station. Talk to the boy in an orange shirt (looks
similar to the PoisMask S guy) on the far end of the Station, furthest from
the exit. He says basically all he said in the request, but says he has an
ALicense and may have wandered as far as Yumland. He's purple. Go to Lan's
PC and access the Net. Use the Warp point to go to YumSquare Entrance. Go
to YumSquare and take the winding path to the big yellow square area. There
is a purple Navi there, talk to him. He says that he is angry, but he
forgives his Operator because he cares enough to search for him. He says that
he will not be back for a while, since he thinks that his Operator relies on
him too much. He tells MegaMan to say that to his Operator. Jack out and
return to ACDC Station. Talk to the boy. Your reward is yet another handy
HPMemory.

Request: Fight crime
Info: Recently, a nasty Navi has been making trouble. He picks fights with
ordinary Navis, and even uses viruses. Now he's after me, so I'm on the run.
Can you do something about this? I'm waiting in a telephone in some house,
somewhere.
Solving: Go to ACDC Town and go to Yai's house. Go upstairs and go to the
antique phone. Jack in. Head right (to the bottom right corner of the area)
and talk to the civilian Navi. After he asks for help, talk to the evil
Navi.

Shrimpy3, Popper, Popper

What can I say? Eliminate the Shrimpy quickly, as it is a nuisance. The
Poppers 'pop in' every now and again. Time your strikes right and they will
be easy to beat. The Popper viruses have a massive 300HP and use Wood Tower
attacks that are easy to dodge. Use their slow homing properties to lure the
attack to one side and easily evade it. After the evil Navi is deleted, talk
to the civilian. He will give you the ultra useful GospCode, that belonged to
the evil Navi. You can use this to open all those mysterious SecurityCubes.

Request: Help research
Info:    With the assistance of a TV station, I'm researching virus busting.
Please helpy me with my research. Your task is simple. I want to measure
your Navi's data as you delete viruses. Your reward will be an item that I
know that you will just love. Just don't blame me if your Navi gets
deleted instead. ;) (No joke, Capcom have a basic knowledge of smileys XD)
If you agree to do this job, plug into my van's computer.
Solving: Go outside and jack into Ribitta's Van. From here, start walking off
to the left (following the path) and you will see an Official Navi. Talk to
him. He says that his research consists of generating a virus five times. He
will measure synchronisation and response. Save first, this request is a tough
one. When you are ready, say 'yes' to him to begin. No HP recovery is allowed
in between battles.

Battle 1 - Ratty, Ratty, Flamey2
The Ratties are fast and annoying. Apart from that, nothing should be too
hard.
Battle 2 - Goofball, VacuumFan, HardHead2
Find a way to clear the way, the VacuumFan should be first. The Goofball is the
threat, so take care.
Battle 3 - Sparkler, Cloudy2, Flappy2
They're all meagre annoyers. Eliminate the Sparkler and focus on the Cloudy
next.
Battle 4 - Fishy2, Flamey2, MettFire
Ouch. That Fishy is going to hurt. Take care of it quickly. The MettFire is
going to be your last priority.
Battle 5 - Dominerd2, Fishy3, Fishy3
Now THIS is a hard battle. Soon enough, they will crack every single panel,
thusly trapping you to one spot. After that, the rest is history. Take out
the Dominerd FAST! You're pretty much finished once he uses his Geddon chip.
This battle is all about speed, so whip out some swords to take out the
Dominerd and the Fishies will follow (take care to dodge them, though).

The Official will be amazed. He says that it is useless compared to the
average Navi (you know, in Science we learn that multiple trials are required
for a standard to be reached), but he still thanks you and rewards you with a
PowerUP.

Request: Please help
Info: I've heard that Electopia's virus busting is topnotch. Can you get rid
of the four nastiest bullies in Netopia? They're too much for us to handle
alone. I'm waiting in Netopia Town, in Netopia. Thank you for your time.
Solving: Go to the Airport and make your way to Netopia. Go next to the
hotel in Netopia Town and talk to the girl facing the wall nearby. She wants
you to punish four bullies who are hanging out by the NetSquare Entrance.
This request is available from the 'Worldwide Disasters' scenario onwards, so
I will assume that ice still blocks the warp points in Den Area 1. Simply
make your way to the Square Entrance by walking there (from Den Area 2) and
then warp to the other side of Den Area 1 where the warp points are. Use
the warp point to the top right to go to NetSquare Entrance. From here, start
by going directly south and talking to the first of four evil Navis here.

Handy3, Handy3, StormBox

Quick deletes are the key here. Take out the Handies (naturally) first and
then focus on the StormBox. The Handies' bombs deal tonnes of damage, so
take care. After the first bully is gone, go further south (to the south of
NetSquare Entrance) and talk to the second bully.

BrushMan2, BrushMan2, DeathFire

Ooh. Viruses we haven't seen before... The BrushMen literally try to paint
on you and they alter the terrain that they paint, so yeah. Take them all
out, focus on the BrushMen first. After these viruses are gone, go to the
far east of the area and talk to the third bully.

Goofball, Goofball, HardHead3

Now THIS is a battle. Speed is the key. Take out the HardHead quickly and
use a LifeSwrd to remove the Goofballs. Waiting will result in death through
becoming trapped and being assaulted with heavy-hitting attacks. I personally
used a well-timed Gater and finished off the HardHead easily thereafter. Once
that is done, go up north and deal with the final bully.

BlueUFO, Fishy2, Fishy3

Another somewhat difficult battle. Remove the Fishies first, of course. The
damned UFO will try to remove your chips from you, so whatever you do, make
it quick. Don't also forget that he can paralyse you, making the Fishies all
the more lethal. Once they're done with, jack out. Return all the way to
Netopia and talk to the girl. Your reward is the handy StepSwrd M chip.

Request: Lend me cash!
Info:    The company I'm in charge of is on the verge of bankruptcy. I need
50000 zennys immediately. If business picks up again, I will repay soon, with
interest. If you can finance me, come to the big mansion in ACDC.
Solving: This is an easy request, provided that you yourself are loaded. Go to
Yai's house in ACDC Town. Talk to the man in office attire right next to the
entrance. He basically says that he runs a disaster management/prevention
agency and that Netbattlers are doing all the work these days, screwing over
his business. Give him the 50000Z he needs. Walk out of the house and right
back in. The man has good news. A natural disaster happened recently (eh...
good news?) and his business is back to normal. He gives you a phenomenal
100000Z! We're REALLY loaded now!

Request: To bug academics
Info:    I belong to the Electopia Bug Society. I'm looking for a bug I'm
researching for the Synopsium. It's called the Den Beetle, and it lives in
Electopia. It's a very rare bug, and I'm having trouble finding one. I'm
looking for someone to help me find this bug. If you can help, see me at
the Okuden Valley campground.
Solving: It's time to hit Okuden one last time! Go to the Campground. Once
there, look near the river (close to the entrance) and you'll see the bug
expert from the entire 'Aerial Assault' scenario. Talk to him. He recognises
Lan immediately and is reassured. He says the Den Beetle is around the
camping area and that it likes places where the water is peaceful. This isn't
a hard request at all. On Camp Road 1, go the river and along the rocks,
go to the furthest end of the one closest to the boy who wants an Invis1 *.
Examine the corner and you'll get the Den Beetle. Return to the expert and
he will reward you with a Recov200 M.

Request: Return my gem!
Info:    I work at a jewelry shop in Netopia, and 3 gems were stolen: "YumTear"
"KngStone" "Twilight" I know who did it, but I don't know where he is. Please
help me with my investigation.
Solving: Go to Netopia. Go into Town. Head into the Jewelry Shop and on the
right hand side, there is a woman in a uniform standing (not over the counter,
apart from her). Her three most precious jewels were stolen. They were taken
by the '3 Bandit Sisters'. She says that they unleash viruses when
threatened, have been sighted near the castle and they have a peculiar dialect.
Go back to Netopia Park. From here, head up the left side of the castle
along the narrow path. You will see a girl as you head forward. Talk to her.
She is the first of the '3 Bandit Sisters'. She will send some viruses after
you.

Fishy2, DeathFire, Flamey3

The Fishy must be offed first and then go after the Flamey. Last of all is
the DeathFire. All these viruses are a familiar sight, so don't be too
concerned. After she is defeated, talk to her again. She will return her
YumTear. Now, go to Netopia Town and enter the Hotel. Talk to the new black
woman that is here. Talk to her twice and she will reveal her identity as
the second of the '3 Bandit Sisters'. She will launch some viruses at you.

Swordy3, Cloudy3, Poofy

An interesting bunch of water viruses. Make good use of their weakness to
electricity. Apart from that, you're free to do as you like. Just don't get
deleted! A word of advice: the Poofy fires a bubble that is constantly after
you, so keep moving, or eliminate the annoyance quickly. Once the viruses are
deleted, talk to her again to get the KngStone. Return to Netopia Castle, but
this time enter it. Keep going straight and up the stairs to reach the
Watchtower, where you fought Pride before. There is a camper woman here.
Speak to her. She says that her sisters did not bother mastering fluent
Netopian, but she has and she needs her jewel. Prepare for a last round of
viruses.

Sparknoid, Sparknoid, GreenUFO

Easy. Quick deletes for the win, seriously. If you let them live, you are gone,
otherwise they are gone. Speed is the answer. After their delete, talk to the
last of the '3 Bandit Sisters' one more time. Apparently, the jewel belonged
to her grandfather but was stolen from him by a corrupt jeweller. She decides
to amend her ways and one day the '3 Sisters' can reclaim the jewels they
once owned. She returns Twilight. Now, go all the way back to the Jewelry
Shop and talk to the woman again. She is very grateful and rewards you with
a GoldFist Z.

Problem 1 - Survival Battle, no recovery permitted in between battles
Battle 1  - Mettaur, Mettaur
Battle 2  - Canodumb, Canodumb
Battle 3  - Mettaur, Mettaur, Mettaur
Battle 4  - Canodumb, Canodumb, Canodumb
Battle 5  - Bunny, Bunny, Bunny

These battles are a piece of cake. Every virus you battle you have encountered
in the past.

Problem 2 - A Navi needs help in the Den Area. MegaMan needs to find him and
help him.

Navi's location: Den Area 3, past the Netdealer going towards Koto Area. A
bad guy stole his WalkProg. Say that you will help him.

Evil Navi's Location: From Den Area 2, start heading down towards Den Area 1
and you'll see him along the way.

Beetank, Beetank, Beetank

These guys aren't spectacularly hard, they just have a lot of HP. Use mass
targetting attacks that are generally based such as ShockWaves to delete them
quickly. Their movement means that they are more than likely to get hit
by moving into the path of attacks. Jack out, jack back in and head to
Den Area 3 from the Square Entrance. Give the navi his WalkProg back and
MegaMan will receive NiceData. Jack out and jack back in yet again. Give the
examiner the NiceData and you're ready for the last problem.

Problem 3 - Survival battle, no recovery permitted in between battles
Battle 1  - Mettaur2, Flappy, Canodumb
Take out the Mettaur2 first, then the Canodumb. Handle the Flappy last. The
Mettaur2 can be easily beaten with a sword immediately.
Battle 2  - Mettaur2, Mettaur2, Mettaur2
Just like Mettaurs, except they shield occasionally. Pick them off one by
one and dodge as necessary.
Battle 3  - Bunny, Canodumb2, Beetank
Defeat the Bunny as fast as possible, then handle the Canodumb whil dodging
the Beetank. The Beetank should die last.
Battle 4  - Canodumb2, Canodumb2, Canodumb2
Yeesh. Three stronger than normal Canodumbs. If you can't delete one
immediately, evade like hell. Otherwise, take out one and stay in that row,
picking the others off when the opportunity arises.
Battle 5 - HardHead, HardHead, Beetank
The HardHeads are almost always immune to attacks, but you need to pick them
off first. When they attack, quickly attack them. After they die, the battle
becomes very easy. Watch out for many explosions and the HardHeads cracking
panels around you. You're in trouble if you are trapped - the cannons the
HardHeads spit out are very painful.

Reward - RegUP1, BLicense

*Required to progress in story, gain access to Yumland*

Problem 1 - Survival battle, no recovery permitted between battles
Battle 1  - Swordy, HardHead
Take out the Swordy quickly and the HardHead shouldn't be a problem.
Battle 2  - Spooky, Spooky2, Spooky2
Remember to take them out in a single blow. Swords work best.
Battle 3  - Handy, Handy, Handy
Focus on deleting them one at a time. Don't feel pressured by the bombs, heal
as necessary.
Battle 4  - Fishy, Fishy, Beetank
The Fishies prove as your main threat. Delete them ASAP with swords.
Battle 5  - Flappy, Flappy, Flappy
Really easy. They're slow and easy to hit with almost anything.

Problem 2 - Two bad Navis are on the Net. We have to delete them! First off,
go to the Board Room and look at the new messages. Next, head to the Square
Entrance and back to Den Area 2. Head in the direction of Den Area 1 and
you'll see an evil Navi. Talk to him; he's the youngest of the Thug
Brothers. He'll send some viruses after you.

Swordy, Swordy2, Swordy3

Yeesh... These guys will try to trap you and swipe you to oblivion. Take
them out as fast as possible! LongSwords are useful. Same with GutsMan
and Roll. Once they're dead, you'll get BadDataA.

Now, go to the Square Entrance and go from there to the top level of Den Area
3. Proceed from here to Koto Area and make your way towards the KotoSquare
Entrance. On the way, you'll see the older of the Thug Brothers. Talk to
him. He's actually weaker than his brother!

Mettaur2, Mettaur2, MettFire

Delete the Mettaurs quickly and then you'll be able to easily kill the
MettFire.
Easy. You'll get BadDataB for your trouble. Jack out and back in. Talk to
the examiner, who'll give you the last problem.

Problem 3 - Survival battle, no recovery permitted in between battles
Battle 1  - Sparky
An interesting virus who moves in between rows. ShockWaves work well, as
does Roll, GutsMan and well-timed strikes with swords.
Battle 2  - Spikey2, Spikey, WindBox
The WindBox causes some issues. Mass-target the enemies, the Spikies are
your main priority, because the rock will cause their heat cross to spread
and hit you.
Battle 3  - Shrimpy, Shrimpy
Evade and delete. No obstacles to worry about, so take care of them quickly.
Battle 4  - TuffBunny, TuffBunny, TuffBunny
Think faster, stronger bunnies. A pain, to say the least. Mass target them,
or take care of each one ASAP.
Battle 5  - Sparky, Swordy, MettFire
The MettFire is a distraction, the Sparky is the major threat. Defeat him
quickly and the other two shall follow suit soon after.

Reward - RegUP2, ALicense

*Required to open certain mysterious SecurityCubes*

Survival battle: No HP recovery permitted in between battles.
Battle 1 - Beetank, Beetank, WindBox
Eliminate the WindBox to clear some space. Dodge the Beetanks and take of
them.
Battle 2 - Swordy2, Flamey, MettFire
The Swordy is your immediate danger. The others are distractions. Take out
the MettFire last. Watch out for the bomb behind you!
Battle 3 - Mettaur2, Sparky, Spooky
The Sparky is your number one priority. Afterwards, the rest is not difficult.
The cracked panels aren't much of an issue.
Battle 4 - Puffball, Shellgeek, Mushy
The Puffball is your main threat and the others are distractions. You can
handle the situation by now, right?
Battle 5 - CanDevil, Dominerd, Shadow
Many strange enemies... Prioritise the Shadow and Dominerd first. Mr.
CanDevil is a distraction. Remember the Shadow is only weak to swords. Bait
the Dominerd and slice him up with an ElecSwrd or something. Cracks are
are bigger nuisance.
Battle 6 - Handy2, Handy2, Flappy2
Defeat the Handies first! Their bombs will piss you off. The Flappy will
follow suit. You should note Flappy2 will attack in a cross, so stay WELL
AWAY from him!
Battle 7 - Shrimpy3, Cloudy2, Null
You've never seen a Null before, right? Basically, it's an ass. It heals
after you hit it, making it your LAST goddamn priority. The other two
distractions are first. Beat the Null in a single blow. You should have those
kind of resources by now. By the way, every virus here is weak to electric
attacks. The ice will make it a tough battle.
Battle 8 - Yort, Yort, Beetank3
Another interesting virus you've never met before. Most of the viruses you
are tested against now will become commonplace later on. Anyway, the
Yorts are definitely a big problem, but so is the Beetank. Take the Yorts
out because they are in such close proximity to you and then take out the
Beetank. He's faster and more aggressive than other versions of Beetank, so
take care.
Battle 9 - Fishy, Fishy3, Fishy2
The Fishy is a nuisance itself, but the other two are some of the toughest
enemies in the game. Fishy2 will light up the row it travels across and the
Fishy3 is amazingly fast. Beat them all ASAP! Gater would be good right now...
Or, just focus on taking out the weaker Fishies and then eliminate the
last Fishy with little trouble. If you are severely damaged (not surprisingly)
take some time to dodge the last Fishy and heal like hell.
Battle 10 - Goofball, HardHead3, HardHead3
They will use AreaGrab and their Cannonballs to trap you and take you out with
hard-hitting attacks. The Puffball is definitely your first priority. The
HardHeads follow suit, just don't be surprised at the speed at which they
shoot at you... Don't be too surprised if you lose here, so close yet so
far.

*Required to open certain mysterious SecurityCubes*

Problem 1 - Influenced by Gospel, four Navis have formed a gang called the
Black Navis. There are 4 members that must be eliminated while the gang is
small, before growing into a major criminal organisation. They are all black
and look very mean. One has been spotted in the Yumland area.

Go to Yumland 2, to the northern-most area where there are many moving
paths deviating from it (near where you rescued Roll). A purple Navi is
standing there. Talk to him. He's No. 4 of the Black Navis. He tells you
No. 3 is in Netopia, but before you can react he sends some viruses at you.

Sparknoid, Sparknoid, Twisty3

Definitely take care of the Sparknoids first and finally take out the Twisty.
This battle isn't difficult, but the ice stage makes their attacks more
damaging.

Go to Netopia 3, and at the beginning where you see multiple moving paths
heading down take the second from the right. Talk to No. 3. He says No. 2 is
in the Undernet and like before, sends viruses after you.

Flamey3, Flamey3, DeathFire

The Flamies should be deleted first and then DeathFire shall follow suit. There
isn't anything terribly difficult about this battle.

Go to Undernet 6. From the ramp you enter from (that goes down), take the
furthest ramp on the right leading up (in the direction of Undernet 7). From
going up, immediately go to the right to find No. 2 in the dead end here. He
says he and No. 1 will expand the Black Navis organisation around the world.
Both he and No. 1 who resides in Koto Area are especially strong. With that,
he launches more viruses at you.

Goofball, Goofball, Snapper

Don't stay in the same row as the Snapper. Apart from that, eliminate
both Goofballs with a LifeSwrd or something and the rest is easy.

Go to UnderKoto to where the Netdealer resides. On the way, on the big area
(where the Netdealer is) you will find No. 1. He isn't so disappointed that
his followers are deleted and asks MegaMan to join him. MegaMan refuses and
another battle begins.

Null&Void, Poofy, Puffy

They are all weak to electric attacks and since the Null&Void is standing on
ice... It makes the battle a little easier. Take out the Null&Void first and
focus on the Poofy. The Puffy is your last concern, despite the fact it is
(probably) the strongest virus in this battle.

Once you're done, return to the SSLicense Examiner in the Square.

Problem 2 - Survival battle, no HP recovery allowed in between battles

Battle 1 - Mettaur3, Mettaur3

No explanation necessary. These guys are dead easy.

Battle 2 - RedDevil, Shellman, Twisty2

Defeat the RedDevil first and the others will fall easily thereafter.

Battle 3 - Yurt, FullFire, Spooky2

The Yurt should be defeated first and the others go down with ease afterwards.

Battle 4 - Fishy3, Fishy2, Fishy3

We've done this before, but it isn't easy. The Fishy2 should be removed first
because of the grass stage. Evade the others and hit them when you can.

Battle 5 - Goofball, Shellnerd, Shellnerd

The Goofball was always going to be your biggest threat. The others are mere
distractions that are easy to defeat.

Battle 6 - Sparkler, Sparkler

There is nothing exceptionally difficult about this battle, apart from the
cracked terrain. Make sure you kill the Sparklers quickly.

Battle 7 - Dominerd3, StormBox

The cracked panels make this battle somewhat difficult. Eliminate the Dominerd
fast and then take your time on the StormBox.

Battle 8 - Flappy2, Flappy2, Flappy2

Yeesh. More cracked panels. Anyway, this battle isn't hard, just make sure
you aren't hit too much or trapped. That's the last thing you want to happen.

Battle 9 - Swordy3, Swordy3, KillPlant

Surprise, surprise, more cracked panels. Defeat the Swordies as fast as you
can and the KillPlant will be defeated soon after.

Battle 10 - Mettaur3, Mettaur3, Cloudy2

Even more cracked panels. Take care of the Mettaurs first.

Battle 11 - Spooky3, Spooky2, Spooky2

W00t! More than half-way... This battle is easy, apart from the ice. Stay in
the front and move to the back as they attack you.

Battle 12 - Dominerd, Dominerd, Dominerd

We've done this battle before, if you can remember. Take out the Dominerds
one at a time; lure them into attacking and hit them while they are vulnerable.

Battle 13 - MegaBunny, MegaBunny, Ratty3

Whatever you do, don't let the Bunnies hit you! The ice panels and paralysis
will make you reel in pain. Take out the Ratty ASAP if possible.

Battle 14 - Ratty3, Ratty3, DeathFire

Again, the Ratties are your main threat. The DeathFire will hide behind the
ice cube, but find your way around it with a LifeSwrd.

Battle 15 - Shrimpy3, Shrimpy3, Beetank2

Easy battle, except for the ice. Use the weakness to electricity to your
advantage. As usual, the Beetank should be defeated last.

Battle 16 - Canodumb3, Canodumb3, Beetank3

A very easy battle if I say so myself. No terrain changes. Kill the Canodumbs
to free up some room and take out the Beetank with no trouble.

Battle 17 - Dominerd2, Flappy2, Flappy2

Another easy battle... Just make sure you kill the Dominerd ASAP before he
uses a Geddon on you.

Battle 18 - Spikey3, Spikey3, Flamey3

All is good... Except for the bomb. Invis3, anyone? Anyway, I highly recommend
taking out the Spikies and then focus on Mr. Flamey.

Battle 19 - Sparknoid, Shrimpy3, Popper

Take out the Sparknoid first and the Popper last. Apart from that, nothing
here is exceptionally hard (surprisingly). Don't screw up now you are so
close to the end.

Battle 20 - Spooky3, Bluegon, HardHead 3

Kill the Spooky and HardHead quickly. As the Bluegon appears (from the holes)
kill it when it attacks.

Problem 2 - Survival battle, no HP recovery permitted in between battles

Battle 1 - Mettaur2, Mettaur2, Mettaur3
No explanation necessary, I'm sure.

Battle 2 - Swordy3, Mashy, KillWeed
Take out the Swordy and the rest will follow.

Battle 3 - Fishy3, DeathFire
The lava panels make this battle a little tougher than normal. Use Invisible
for defence and hit away. Neutralise the lava with aqua attacks if possible.

Battle 4 - BlueDemon, Canodumb3, Canodumb3
Take down the Demon first and the others shall follow.

Battle 5 - CanDevil2, Fishy2
More lava = more pain. Don't get overwhelmed and everything will be OK.

Battle 6 - BlueUFO, HardHead2, Cloudy2
Ice panels can work in your favour. Take out the UFO, then the Cloudy and
finally the HardHead.

Battle 7 - Magmacker, Magmacker, Beetank2
Once again, don't get overwhelmed. None of the enemies are too tough.

Battle 8 - MegaBunny, Mettaur3, Flappy3
This battle is dead easy. Don't get paralysed and handle the Mettaur last.

Battle 9 - Sparknoid
Take care to avoid the swamp and the rest is easy.

Battle 10 - Fishy2, Fishy2, WindBox
More swamps. Avoid (the Wind plays a part) the swamp and take care of the
Fishies.

Battle 11 - Handy3, Handy3, HardHead
Joy, more swamp. Handies should be taken care of ASAP.

Battle 12 - Beetank3
The holes make this battle a more difficult one from the past. Ranged attacks
are a must.

Battle 13 - Swordy2, Swordy2, DeathFire
The grass panels mean their attacks are doubled, but they are easy enemies.

Battle 14 - Ratty2, Ratty2, Poofy
By all means, eliminate the Ratties first.

Battle 15 - RedUFO, BlueUFO, RedUFO
Easy. Make sure they don't steal your chips... That's all.

Battle 16 - DeathFire, Spooky3
Easy except for the lava. Bypass it with an Invisible and then take them
apart.

Battle 17 - Yurt, Yart, VacuumFan
The Fan makes trouble. If you get hit, take the time to heal before defeating
the Fan. Make sure you kill the Yurt/Yart before they pin you to death.

Battle 18 - Mettaur3, StormBox, Beetank2
Take care of distractions and handle the Beetank last.

Battle 19 - Dominerd, Dominerd, VacuumFan
It's all good except for the Fan and the swamp. Use Invisible and kill
the Fan ASAP.

Battle 20 - Dominerd2, Dominerd2
Kill them before Geddon strikes. A normal plain makes this battle tolerable.

Battle 21 - MegalianA, MegalianH, MegalianW
You've faced these guys... Take down their auras and the battle becomes
easy.

Battle 22 - Flappy3, Spooky3, Flappy3
Another easy battle. No assistance is required, right?

Battle 23 - Fishy2, Spikey
Light up their bomb before they light up yours. Easy.

Battle 24 - Sparknoid, Mettaur3
The ice makes this battle a little difficult, but you should find it relatively
easy *again*.

Battle 25 - Mettaur, Handy3, Handy3
The magnets are your only obstruction, aside from that this battle is easy.

Battle 26 - Ratty3, Ratty3, Ratty3
Another easy battle; make sure the Ratties are dead FAST.

Battle 27 - GreenUFO, Beetank3, Twisty3
The holes are a headache, but aside from that, this battle is easy.

Battle 28 - Yart, Shellman, Shellman
More holes, but overall an easy battle. Make sure Yart goes down first.

Battle 29 - Swordy3, Cloudy3, Snapper2
The Swordy and Cloudy must be defeated first for an easy time. Lure the
Snapper out and finish it.

Battle 30 - HardHead3, Yellowgon, HardHead3
Take out the HardHeads before you are trapped. When the Yellowgon strikes,
finish it.

ii. Secret Chips = (SECRT) =
    ============
A guide to additional chips (that cannot be obtained in-game) from 251-266

Secret Chips can only be obtained through Netbattling. There is a possibility
of gaining a Secret Chip on the following conditions:
- Both Netbattlers have at least 3 Stars
- A player S ranks the other one

Obtaining Secret Chips are randomly determined, but to increase the chances,
a few ways of doing so include:
- A significantly unusual battle time (battle duration)
- A significantly unusual battle result (losing once after winning a lot etc.)
- A significantly unusual amount of damage received
- A significantly unusual amount of movement used
- A significantly unusual amount of turns taken to defeat an opponent
- A significantly unusual amount of chips USED (not just selected)

The easiest way of trying to get a Secret Chip is for one player to S rank
another player a few times and then the reverse to happen. Continue this
pattern to get more Secret Chips. Remember that they are random, so one
elusive Chip may take some time to obtain.

There are 10 Secret Chips.

Hellow there! Did everyone get their ZLicense!? I can't find the HeroData
anywhere, and wandered around for an hour. I'm so frustrated! So what's your
default chips? I use "Recov10".

Poster: Ms.Tater
CyberSquare?
The Square is fun, with all the shops and bulletin boards. These kinds of
"cybersquares" are a big city thing. The server for the Square is in Marine
Harbor, in a place called the Center. Kotobuki, which is the next town over,
has one too I think.

They're making a square in Kotobuki too! It's still under construction at the

Marine Harbor, eh. OK! I'll work up my courage and confess! Thanks for the

Marine Harbor
Good luck on your confession! By the way, they also do a lot of TV reporting
in Marine H. Ribitta, the popular announcer does a "NetBattle Corner" show

There was a bomb scare at the campground recently. I saw on TV that an 11-year-
old deleted the criminal Navi! Must be a great NetBattler! I'd love to
challenge him once!

Poster: Marble
NetBattles...
Speaking of NetBattles, guess who is back at the Center! You guessed it!

Poster: Scummy
That person!?
Is it true!? Wow, I'll have to challenge him! Last time, I had a nasty fight
vs. GateSoldier. But I just bought a PowerUP, so I'll be ready for him now!
I'll just have to look out for his Gate Cannon! It does overwhelming damage.

Been a while since I NetBattled. Since my trip to Yumland. Their level of

I did a homestay in Yumland myself. It's a beautiful, green country with

Yeah there was definitely some kind of incident at the Center,

Chip Traders
Recently there has been a "chip trader" machine set up at the Center. Has
everyone tried it already? I traded 3 Recov10s for a Ratton1! I was so lucky!

Poster: Baldy
Re:Chip Trade
You got a Ratton!? You are so lucky... I went for broke and put in 3 LongSwrds
and got a Cannon. What a bummer...

Poster: Scummy
Re:Chip Trade
Baldy, no!!! Chip traders don't give better chips depending on what you put in!
The chips you get are all luck. You have to put in chips you don't need to
enjoy it!

ACDC Chips
That reminds me, there used to be a Chip Trader Special at an old chip shop in

On the day of the Official NetBattler conference in Netopia, there was also a
World Bug Symposium. They say a famous scholar from Electopia participated.

Netopia has a long history, and even has some castles still. Even so, it's
cities are global economic centers, and lots of different kinds of people live
in them. It's economy is huge!

Gauss arrest!
Did you guys all see the mail news? They caught the CEO of that Gauss, Inc!
What a shocker!

Poster: Vishnu
Re:Gauss arre
Yeah, and he was a Gospel NetBattler, of all things. Why would someone with all
that money and respect help a criminal organization like that anyway? I'll
never understand what goes on in rich folks' minds.

Poster: Kiddo
Re:Gauss arre
Having money is no guarantee of a happy life, you know. Sometimes something in
childhood that influences a person later. Mr. Guass was poor when he was
growing up, so maybe he held a grudge against the world in general.

Poster: Yaz
Re:Gauss arre
When you're a kid, making lots of friends and playing a lot is the key to true
happiness. I'm all grown up now, but I still think my friends are my real

Scary quake!
Well, it looks like the earthquake has finally ended. I was so terriefied, it
took me forever to get to sleep. I'll let you in on a little secret.
Electopia's environment is protected by a special system against quakes etc. So
why was there a quake? What was it? a net crime!?

Poster: Candy
Gospel...
I heard it was all Gospel's dirty work. Maybe the reason the quake ended was
because they defeated those Gospel jerks.

Bunnies
Hello, this is my first post! Mettaur was never rare, but these day you run
into virus like a rabbit-Bunny... Cute as they may be, they fire these
paralyzing rings! Does anyone have a good strategy for these guys?

Poster: Oozy
Re:Bunnies
Bunnies are hard to hit because they move unpredictably. I try to delete them
before they first move. It's pretty intense! Hit them when they line up to
shoot the rings at you. Good luck!

Poster: Dex
Beetanks
Dex here! My homepage is infested by Beetanks! I can't dodge their LilBombs and
bust them! Someone help!

Poster: IronMan
Re:Beetanks
Beetank's LilBombs really are nasty. I guess the trick is to back up? The bombs
fly slowly so they are easy to dodge. Try taking one step forward when you see
a bomb coming, too! Hitting them twice with a cannon before they move is best!

Poster: Ms.Tater
HardHeads
What's up with HardHeads? I can't damage them at all! I can't beat them!

Poster: Noogie
Re:HardHeads
Well, Ms.Tater... When that virus closes its mouth, it takes no damage. So time
your attack so to hit when its mouth is open!

Poster: Ms.Tater
Re:HardHeads
But while I'm waiting, the other viruses attack me! What can I do!?

Poster: Oozy
Re:HardHeads
I'll let you in on a little secret about HardHeads! This is only a hint so pay
attention! Some chips penetrate viruses' guards and do damage! If you want to
learn more, check the Battle Board!

Poster: Ms.Tater
Re:HardHeads
I checked the Battle Board... I see now... Alright, take that blockhead
virus!!! Thanks everyone!

Dominerds
I can't delete those Dominerd viruses. Who knows how to?

Re:Dominerds
Dominerd- you mean those viruses that look like dominoes? I hear they appear
abroad, not in Electopia. So I dunno. Can someone post a strategy for these
guys?

Ask Kiddo, he knows a lot about foreign viruses. I think he reads this board
actually. Kiddo, are you there?

Poster: Kiddo
Domnrd strats
Kiddo here! Dominerds, eh. Yeah, you see those all over in Netopia. They are
usually in StoneBod form, which means that their bodies are as hard as a rock,
and only take 1 point damage! So here's what you do! They open their mouths to
bite, right? When the come to bite you, take one step back and... Chip attack!
Fast attacks like sword, work best. Alright, good luck, all you virus busters!
Later!

There's a virus like a mushroom, called Musy, that can only move over grass
panels, apparently. When all the grass panels are gone, they stand there

I can't steal chips from Flamey viruses. What do they have?

Poster: Noogie
Re:Flameys
Flameys? I'd tell you what they have, but where's the fun? I won't tell you,
but yeah, they are tough. I got the chip when I deleted it with 1 hit of my
AquaSwrd. So yeah, [Aqua] chips seem to work the best- good luck!

Poster: Hoss
Octons
Have you heard of a virus called the Octon? I heard it has a rare chip, but
I've never seen one!

Poster: Kiddo
Re:Octons
Kiddo here! Yeah, I know the Octon! I saw one once in an electrical device at
the Center. I forget exactly which one it was at the moment. I seem to recall
that it was a pretty nasty enemy... If you run into one, be careful. See yah!

Poster: Cuckoo
Worms?
I've heard that a virus like a bagworm has rare chips. Anyone know it!?

Poster: Santa
Re:Worms?
I saw that one a long time ago... Months ago. Maybe they've been deleted to
extinction... You just don't see them around anymore.

Poster: Cuckoo
Re:Worms?
Ah, too bad. I wanted to try fighting a bagworm virus once. Thanks for telling
us about them anyway!

Poster: Sarah
Auras...
Have you heard of virus that have a kind of aura? I hear they have really good
chips. Anyone know?

Poster: Tiger
Re:Auras...
Aura viruses? I've never heard of them. Must be rare.

Poster: Candy
Re:Auras...
Aura... Look out, you're talking about an Undernet virus! Attacks under the
number on the aura have no effect. If a good chip doesn't come up when you're
fighting it, your Navi could be deleted. Stay away from the Undernet!

Poster: Sarah
Re:Auras...
An Undernet virus!? How dangerous! I had no idea what I was posting about!
Don't anyone go looking for this one! I'm sorry, Admin!

[Elec]element
My NetNavi is [Aqua] element, which makes it weak to [Elec] attacks. What kind
of [Elec] viruses are there? All I know is the Bunny, so please tell me some
more!

Re:[Elec]elem
[Elec] element viruses, you say... I've also heard of Sparky, Twisty, and
Magneaker...

Poster: Scummy
Re:[Elec]elem
Oh yeah, RedUFO's are also [Elec] element viruses! I like those guys. Does it
seem weird that I like a virus? Those RedUFOs are just too... cute!

Poster: Grimace
KillPlants
Do you know the KillPlants? They shoot seeds. If you hit a seed with water, it
turns into a wood spear! Be careful everyone!

Poster: Candy
Shrimpies
Yeah, I fell for that trick once, too. A water ball from Shrimpy hit one and
man, the spears! Blew my mind!

Poster: Kiddo
Combo strats1
Yeah, some enemies are stronger in combinations. I always lose to Beetank and
WindBox combso! With the wind blowing, the LilBombs are hard to dodge. Anyway,
you'd better delete one immediately, or look out!

Poster: Kiddo
Combo strats2
Since we're talking about combos, how, about panel types! When a Sparkler
appeared on a magnet panel... ouch! They're hard to get away from!

Poster: Cuckoo
What to do...
That does sound tough! The Spark series of viruses orbit things that get int
their way like a satellite or so I've heard. So RockCube might be  handy in
your default chip.

Poster: Kevin
Ratties
Is it just me, or are the Ratties tough!? They zoom around so fast, they are
very good at dodging. None of my attacks hit them!

Poster: Alice
Re:Ratties
Those guys move faster when they are low on HPs. Try to delete them in one
blast with a powerful chip.

Poster: Mazeltov
MotherComp
There's a rumor that something attacked the mother computer. And they say lots
of the viruses in the attack were [Wood]. An Official NetBattler jacked into
the mother computer heard them talking about it, hehe.

Poster: Mr.beLLz
Re:MotherComp
Wow, I would sure love to jack into the mother computer! I wonder what kind of
viruses are in there!?

Hey, don't talk about jacking into the mother computer! There have been lots of
Gospel-related incidents lately, so that doesn't sound like a joke! Watch it!

Ah, you're right. Sorry. I was thinking about collecting chips... By the way,
my database is still stuck at only 35/250. Where are all the viruses I haven't

My database is at 68/250. It'll take a while but I'll complete it & be the

Whey is the Net all covered in ice? Are all the regular posters on this board
ok? By the way I can see faint outlines of viruses in the ice. Maybe there are
viruses in there lying in wait?

Poster: Scummy
Re:Ice...
Someone posted on the Battle Board that they broke open a white ice! And yes,
there was a virus inside.

I read the post on the Battle Board. It was a pretty strong virus, too. Even if

The Net (#1)
I can see ther eare many youngsters here so let me teach you the best way to
walk around the Net. You have seen cubes that block off certain roads, right?
Roads like that lead to people's home pages. Those cubes keep strangers from
barging in. So if you get to be friends with that person and they tell you
their code, you will be able to open their cube.

Poster: Admin
The Net (#2)
By the way, have you ever been to Den Area 3? The cubes there are a little
special, the country runs them. Those roads go to the Nets of foreign
countries, so the cubes prevent people from coming and going at will. Many of
the viruses in other countires are stronger than domestic viruses, so to go
through, you need a ALicense. You youngsters ain't ready for that yet, of
course!

ACDC Town!
Hello there! I live in Kotobuki, but the other day I went to ACDC Town for the

Re:Mystery da
I'll tell yah. Blue mystery data disappears- you can only take it once. And you
can take green data, um... how many times? Actually it comes back each time you
jack out! And-get this-you never know what's gonna be in there! Like a box of
chocolates! Sometimes, though, the green ones will have viruses. So you'd
better be careful!

even have a Board Room there too. They say that if you post a keyword there a
Navi called the Doc will appear in UnderSquare. He makes cures for any kind of
virus. There's a great informant in UnderSquare that they say knows the
keyword, but... Well, I'm sure no one is gonna check for themselves, so it
could be a lie, or some kind of urban legend...

work with recovery chips! So now you know!

Re:CustomSwor
CustSwrd, right. It's a sword with an Atk linked to CusGauge. It's really weak
at the start, but as the Cust Gauge goes up, it's Attack power goes way up! But
there's more! The effect wears out when the guage is full. So gry to use it
just before the gauge is full!

I see, he combines that and, that with GateMan eh, hehehe... OK, I'll give you
ShadowMan's advance info, the combo is: ...I dunno. But don't be angry! I do

above the roof and fires a volley of shurikens! Think of likely chip
combinations and you may figure it out.

Command chip
This is secret info. Some chips have power ups you can activate by quickly

I shot that hooded Navi with a HiCannon. Then it bounced off this kind of an

I've been reading all the posts so far. Somebody called the Doc out for the
first time in a long time! Looks like the guy who posted it is from the regular
Net. What a brave fool he must be.

Poster: IronBear
Re:The Doc
Yeah, I saw that too. He was talking to a blue Navi from the regular Net. He's
the same tricky goat as always. Now, that blue Navi... is pretty amazing, to
reach the Undernet. He's so relaxed and confident, it's kinda scary actually. I
get the feeling he is one tough customer...

Poster: Cueball
The blue Navi
Hey, don't forget we're programs. We don't get stronger. He just thinks he's
stronger, that's all. And that will cause him to mess up processes and
misjudge. That ProtoMan has superior control, so he seems stronger. A Navi with
Human genetics programmed in would synchronize with its operator and feel
invincible. They say that raises a Navi's fighting capabilities.

Rumor 5
Here's Undernet Rumor #5. The Megalian virus has an aura around it, and unless
you hit it with an attack more damaging than that number, the virus itself
won't take any damage at all.

Re:Rumor 5
The Megalian's aura is elemental, so if you attack with the right element, you
can break through with a weak attack! The now-defunct WWW developed a so-called
"LifeAura" that supposedly had no element, and so no weak-points.

from the WWW lab before the LifeVirus was deleted. He snuck into the WWW lab
without anyone realizing it! If that Navi stole the LifeAura too, then it's
definitely the strongest Navi anywhere. Do you think this is true?

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
There are even more aspects of MegaMan Battle Network 2 that can only be
covered here, because they don't really fit anywhere else.

i. Style Change = (STYLE) =
   ============
MegaMan Battle Network 2 introduced the phenomenon of Style Change. But
how does it work? How are Styles determined? Is there anyway of guaranteeing
obtaining a Style?

Styles are primarily based on your fighting style. There are Four different
types of Styles (excluding Hub, refer to HubStyle):

Shield: Uploads many recovery and barrier chips. Rarely gets hit.

Team: Uses many Navi chips.

Custom: Uploads many chips at once during the Custom Bar Standby Phase. Also
ADDS often.

Guts: Uses Buster often, especially when the Custom Gauge is full. Charged
shots only from normal style count towards Guts.

I won't elaborate too much, but that's how Styles are determined. Elements
that you obtain are random; however, once you have the element of a Style
you will NOT obtain a Style with that same element until you delete the
current Elemental Style you have.

Every 280 battles you will receive a new Style Change. Your first Style
Change is *fixed* for your very first virus encounter in Mother Comp1 (due
to the story of obtaining Chng.bat).

Styles can also be upgraded (to V2 and subsequently V3) in the following way:
You must spend a quota of battles using that Style. This quota depends on
your Style itself. The quotas are:
Shield - 100 battles
Guts   - 120 battles
Team   - 130 battles
Custom - 160 battles

These quotas will never change and will not be negated by switching to a
different style for some time.

Only 2 styles can be held in MegaMan's memory at once and that is narrowed
down to 1 after MegaMan obtains HubStyle, so choose carefully!

Elemental powers
----------------
Heat:
Resistant to lava stage, but is super weak to aqua-based attacks.
Charge - Flamethrower, three squares forward
V1: 50dmg V2: 75dmg V3: 100dmg

Wood:
Heals HP on grass stage, but is super weak to heat-based attacks.
Charge - Twister, two squares in front of you (one square, eight hits)
V1: 10*8dmg V2: 15*8dmg V3: 20*8dmg

Electric:
Paralysing attacks, but is super weak to wood-based attacks.
Charge - ZapRing, entire row in front of you (shoot)
V1: 10dmg V2: 20dmg V3: 30dmg

Aqua:
Super fast charge attacks, power to nullify heat attacks but is super weak
to elec-based attacks.
Charge - Bubbler, entire row in front of you (shoot), explodes to hit the
target square and the square just behind it
V1: 30dmg V2: 40dmg V3: 50dmg

Style powers
------------
Shield: Begins with a barrier that can nullify one blow. Press Back + B to
generate a Guard-like shield.

Team: Can hold up to 8 Navi Chips in Folder.

Custom: Begins Custom Gauge Selection Screen every turn with 7 Chips to
choose from instead of 5.

Guts: Double Attack power, but rapid is reduced to 1. Cannot flinch.
* Double attack power does not apply to a charged elemental attack.

Earning a Style
---------------
A points system is employed in the game mechanics to determine what style
you will obtain next.

+50 Team Points: Upload a Navi Chip

+60 Custom Points: Upload 5 chips from the Custom Selection Screen
+50 Custom Points: Upload 4 chips from the Custom Selection Screen
+30 Custom Points: Choose to ADD
+25 Custom Points: Upload 3 chips from the Custom Selection Screen
+5 Custom Points: Upload 2 chips from the Custom Selection Screen

+50 Guts Points: Shooting Charged Buster when Custom Gauge is full
+10 Guts Points: Shooting Charged Buster when Custom Gauge IS NOT full
+5 Guts Points: Shooting Buster when Custom Gauge is full
+1 Guts Points: Shooting Buster when Custom Gauge IS NOT full

+45 Shield Points: Uploading a recovery chip
+45 Shield Points: Uploading a defensive chip*
+5 Shield Points: Not getting hit in a battle

* Includes CurseShields, Guard, Invisibles, Dropdown, PopUp, StoneBody, Shadow,
UnderShirt, Barrier, Shields, BubbleWrap and any Auras.

Charged attacks only count if they are non-elemental ie. in normal style.

If two or more Styles have received the same number of points, a certain
priority is taken by the game:
Shield, Team, Custom, Guts

Preferred Styles
----------------
These are my personal recommendations for style changes.

HubStyle: For obvious reasons

WoodShield: Wood is a very good defensive element and this combination of
Twister and Shielding is very potent for the main game.

AquaCustom/ElecCustom: Both very formidable, because Aqua has fast charging
and Elec has paralysis. Take your pick.

ElecGuts/WoodGuts: Electric is ideal for a Guts style due to paralysis and
Wood is also useful for pinning enemies with Twister.

Team styles suck. Admit it, it's true.

ii. Terrains = (TERRA) =
    ========
A reference for different terrains in the game.

Stages
------
Normal: Standard panels with neutral alignment and no distinct characteristics.
Cracked: Stand on a cracked panel and move off it to find that there will be
a hole where the panel was.
Broken: Holes that cannot be passed unless you have AirShoes. If holes were
not originally part of the landscape, they recover in ~8 seconds.
Empty: Holes that were originally part of the landscape. Cannot be bypassed,
except with AirShoes. Cannot be Repaired.
Holy: If you are standing on one, you take 50% of usual damage.
Lava: A non-heat style character will take 50 damage if they step in lava
and then the lava will disappear from that panel. Can be neutralised with
aqua attacks.
Ice: You will constantly slide in the direction you want to go until you
hit an edge. Doubles the power of electric attacks.
Grass: Heals wood style characters. Doubles the power of fire attacks. Can
be destroyed with fire attacks.
Magnet: Repels/attracts a character to/from it.
Swamp: A character standing on swamp slowly is poisoned.

Obstacles
---------
Rock: A rock that nullifies a few attacks and then breaks.
RockCube: A rock that nullifies a few attacks and then breaks; can be pushed
forward.
IceCube: An icecube that nullifies a few attacks and then breaks; can be
pushed forward.
Bomb: Explodes in ally/enemy area when fire lights it.
TimeBomb: A bomb generated by TimeBom viruses that has a 3 second timer.
TimeBomb+: A bomb generated by the TimeBom+ PA that has a 3 second timer.
Prism: Created with Prism, the chip. If hit, spreads attacks on the side
it is on. Lasts 10 seconds.
BlackBlock: Use PharoMan to create this.
Anubis: Use Anubis to create this. Poisons the enemy side.
Pharoah Statue: Created with the PoisPhar PA. Poisons the enemy side FAST.
Staff: Creates meteors to fall on the enemy side randomly. Use Meteor
chips to create this.
Candle: Heals the person who used the chip. Use Candle chips to create this.
WindBox: Blows enemies backwards. Use Wind to create this.
VacuumFan: Sucks enemies forwards. Use Fan to create this.

iii. Subchips = (SUBCH) =
     ========
A reference for subchip information.

Name: MiniEnrg
Info: Heals 50HP

Name: FullEnrg
Info: Heals HP completely

Name: Untrap
Info: Untraps corrupted data, disarming viruses and giving free access to items
contained within.

Name: Unlocker
Info: Unlocks PMDs that are specially encrypted.

Name: SneakRun
Info: Free escape from any battle encountered (non-boss/Navi).

Name: LocEnemy
Info: Use this to target one virus, to constantly battle it.

iv. Navi Strategies = (NVSTR) =
    ===============
Here you are, a comprehensive guide to tackling any and every Navi in the
game.

Here are a few things to remember:
- Most Navis that are optional are normally upgraded one scenario after
defeating their previous version (exceptions in story mode events)
- Ghosts of V3s are never permanently deleted
- After defeating a V2, you must jack out and back in to find the V3

Mandatory Bosses/Gospel Navis
-----------------------------
______
Airman
V1: 300HP Scenario 'Yai's Gas Problems'
V2: 500HP Den Area 1, dead end by heading straight from Lan's PC
V3: 700HP Randomly in Den Area 1 after defeating V2

Tornado: AirMan fires three tornadoes down each row of the battlefield.
They are travelling at different speeds. Evade the faster ones by going in
the path of the slower one and then move away when the slower tornado
approaches.

Wild Tornado: AirMan shoots two tornadoes, one moving horizontally and the
other vertically. They will home in on MegaMan's present location (at the
time) and hit him. Evade it just at the last second.

Air Cannon: AirMan fires a blast of fiery wind down one row. Evade it easily
by moving to a different row (if he actually is aiming at your row).

AirMan's attacks are very predictable. His V1 is very slow, easy to hit and
does not try much to hit you with an attack that is difficult to evade. None
of his attacks are high-damaging, even in V3 form. By the time he is V3, he
will be constantly using his Tornado at high speed to distract you and
occasionally his Air Cannon. Wild Tornado is used very often in V3.

________
QuickMan
V1: 400HP Scenario 'Camping at Okuden'
V2: 600HP Koto Area, in the dead end next to the mysterious SecurityCube
V3: 800HP Randomly in Koto Area after defeating V2

Boomerang: QuickMan sends a boomerang down a single row. Dodge quickly.

Wild Boomerang: QuickMan sends a boomerang that twirls across several rows.
Dodge by anticipating the direction he will aim in.

Many people consider QuickMan difficult, but they simply do not know what
they are doing. You'll notice if you try to hit QuickMan, he will parry
your blows when he is standing there. QuickMan is only vulnerable right
before or right after he uses an attack (for a split second) or when he is
moving. Obviously, it is easier to hit him when he is moving. An easy way
to defeat him is trap him in a single row (AreaGrab twice) and you can easily
score hits on him with swords, Twisters and what-not. Due to his unusual
trait of moving in almost every row before attacking, you can also send
a Wave attack down all rows while he is moving and there is a good chance it
will hit him. His V3 form characteristically features a rapid flurry of
Wild Boomerangs, which are difficult to evade.

______
CutMan
V1: 600HP Scenario 'Yumland'
V2: 800HP On a small area just underneath the warp point to YumSquare in
Yumland 2
V3: 1000HP Randomly in Yumland 2 after defeating V2

Scissor Cut: CutMan uses those blades on his head to move to the front row
and cut MegaMan. Dodge it easily. Or better yet, stay away from the front row.

Floating Scissors: A razor blade hovers around the stone in MegaMan's area,
as a distraction. Dodge it.

Throwing Scissors: CutMan throws a razor blade along one row to try to hit
MegaMan. Dodge it.

CutMan is a dead easy boss. Use the rocks to cover your tracks whenever
possible and keep tabs on the Floating Scissors, making sure you are NEVER
in a position of being trapped. His Scissor Cut is somewhat powerful, but
very predictable. If you want, lure him into using it (by staying in the
front row) and slice him up. Trapping him in one row saves you the chore
of dodging his Floating Scissors and enables his attacks to be easily read.
_________
ShadowMan
V1: 800HP Scenario 'Invasion of Electopia'
V2: 1200HP Undernet 5, on the central colour-changing platform in the western
corner, accessible from Undernet 6 only
V3: 1600HP Randomly in Undernet 5 after defeating V2

Shadow: ShadowMan splits up into three ShadowMans (men?) but only one is
real. Hit the real one, who has a HP gauge under him. If you hit the wrong
one, ShadowMan uses his Shuriken Strike. If you hit the right one, the others
disappear.

Fire Blast: ShadowMan (and his Shadows) send a blast of fire down every
row. Dodge if possible.

Shuriken Strike: ShadowMan launches a series of shurikens at MegaMan.
Dodge quickly and keep dodging!

Ghost Ninja: ShadowMan summons two ghost illusions that block MegaMan's
way, stay in his area and cut him with swords.

Muramasa: ShadowMan attacks with a blade that deals damage equal to the
damage he has taken.

ShadowMan characteristically uses his Shadows and Ghost Ninjas as distractions.
To start off with, he isn't terribly difficult, merely all his attacks are
annoying and he is time-consuming to strike. The grass stage makes his Fire
Blast a little more potent, but nothing extraordinary. In V2 and V3 forms,
he uses Muramasa, which can be quite devestating. I recommend that at that
stage you use Program Advances that can hit him hard and fast; Gater,
LifeSwd, whatever.
_________
KnightMan
V1: 800HP Scenario 'ONBA Meeting'
V2: 1000HP In Netopia 1, on a big area where a PMD is
V3: 1500HP Randomly in Netopia 1 after defeating V2

Royal Wrecking Ball: KnightMan sends a morning star down one row to hit
MegaMan. Dodge before it deals massive damage. He may also rotate it around
in a circle if you are close to him.

Stone Body: KnightMan turns to stone for a long time until he attacks. Hit
him when he is attacking to deal damage. If you hit him in Stone form, any
attack will do 1 damage only.

Royal Rampage: KnightMan summons rocks to shower down on MegaMan's area. Dodge
by using their shadows.

Stomp: KnightMan jumps one row forward from his area. All panels crack.

KnightMan is easy because he is very slow and predictable. Lure him into
becoming vulnerable by going in the middle row. Hit him when you can and
take him down. In V2 and V3 forms his Stomp is more frequently used as is
his Royal Wrecking Ball. His attacks are quite powerful, but he is still one
of the easiest bosses of the game.
_________
MagnetMan
V1: 1000HP Scenario 'Aerial Assault'
V2: 1400HP On the dead end in Undernet 2 by heading right on the moving path,
deviating from heading to UnderSquare
V3: 1800HP Randomly in Undernet 2 after defeating V2

>Electric<

Summon Magnet: MagnetMan uses two semi-homing magnets to attack MegaMan.
Sidestep and dodge around them. They take up one row and normally adopt a
pincer formation.

Black Hole: MagnetMan sends a floaty ball of darkness that moves slowly; it
paralyses MegaMan temporarily. It is homing, but it can be easily dodged
by sidestepping around them.

Magnet Tackle: MagnetMan creates an illusion of himself behind MagnetMan and
he and the illusion charge at MegaMan from around him (both sides),
sandwiching MegaMan.

MagnetMan is annoying for the sole reason that the central row is filled with
magnetic panels. They attract you to the centre and can work in your favour
(assisting in evading) or against you (paralysing you in a spot). He has a
significant amount of HP, too. Normally he uses his Black Hole and Summon
Magnet attacks in a combo. Wood Styles spell doom for him (Wood Twister
combined with Area Grab). It's all about endurance. In V3 form, he becomes
somewhat of a tank and can be more potent than any other Navi you have faced
before. Make sure you kill him quickly.
_________
FreezeMan
V1: 1000HP Scenario 'Worldwide Disasters'
V2: 1200HP Undernet 7 in a dead end near a GMD
V3: 1400HP Randomly in Undernet 7 after defeating V2

>Aqua<

Ice Shards: FreezeMan sends ice from above to strike panels randomly. Dodge.

Icy Wind: FreezeMan uses the wind to force MegaMan backwards and get hit by
Ice Shards and/or Ice Tower.

Ice Barrier: FreezeMan protects himself with a barrier that has a certain
amount of HP. Break it.

Ice Tower: FreezeMan shoots ice that travels along the panels, just like the
other tower attacks. Move to one side and use the ice to immediately slide
to the other side.

FreezeMan is one of the easiest bosses in the game if you know what you are
doing. Use his weakness of electricity to your fullest advantage; there are
many powerful electric chips. Use ElecStyle is you can and spam your
ZapRings at him. Because of their paralysis effect, he will be helpless as
you repetitively use it. If you are lacking in electric attacks, treat him
like any other boss; use strong attacks like LifeSwrd, Gater and so on.
Generating holes isn't such a bad idea to take care of his one decent attack;
Ice Tower.

2000HP

Bug Frag Assault: Random fragments of data continuously appear down certain
rows, as distractions.

Gear Trap: Gears sometimes block the way in random panels.

Gospel Charge: Gospel charges and sends a shockwave breath towards you,
that cracks panels and is semi-homing.

Death Signal: Gospel sucks MegaMan forward (in) in preparation for his killer;
Gospel Breath. Move backwards as fast as possible.

Gospel Breath: Gospel breathes an elemental blast that is super-effective
against your Style element. He does this repetitively.

Summon Gospel Navi: Occasionally, Gospel summons one of either AirMan,
QuickMan or CutMan to attack with their signature attacks. This leaves it
vulnerable. AirMan; tornado, QuickMan; boomerang attack (diagonal),
CutMan (scissor cut)

Drill Charge: Gospel turns his head into a drill and shoots it down the
middle row. Dodge as fast as possible. He does this twice in a row.

Gospel is not difficult, given you know what to do. He has a LOT of HP, and
a wide arsenal of attacks at his disposal. Use your best Program Advances,
whether it be LifeSwrd or Gater and so forth. He is only vulnerable when
his mouth opens or when he changes into a Gospel Navi. Towards his death,
he uses Gospel Breath in combination with Death Signal frequently. Once
you're done finishing him off, congratulations on defeating the final boss
(or is it?), at least storywise, in the game!

Optional Navis
--------------
_______
GutsMan
V1: 300HP Dex
V2: 500HP Dex
V3: 800HP Dex

GutsHammer: GutsMan uses his hammer to generate a sonic wave down one row.
Change row to dodge this slow attack.

GutsPunch: If you stay in the front column of your area, GutsMan attempts
to punch you with his massive fist. Evade it quickly.

GutsQuake: GutsMan uses his hammer to crack all the panels down one row.

SuperGutsQuake: GutsMan uses his hammer to crack every panel in your area.

Rocket GutsPunch: GutsMan fires his GutsPunch at you.

AreaGrab: GutsMan uses this to trap you and in combination with GutsPunch
quickly delete you.

GutsMan starts off by being one of the slowest, easiest and most predictable
Navis in the game. Lure him into using his GutsPunch (stand in the front
row) and use swords to take care of him. His V3 form however, is a different
story. With the potent combo of AreaGrab and Rocket GutsPunch, as well as
very high-damaging attacks, he is a very aggressive boss who will delete
you fast. Wipe him out in one shot (Gater, anyone?) to save yourself the
trouble of enduring torture.
_______
ToadMan
V1: 300HP Ribitta
V2: 600HP Ribitta
V3: 900HP Ribitta

> Aqua <

Paralysing Song: ToadMan sends a semi-homing paralysing musical note towards
MegaMan. Evade at the last second to avoid it.

Toad Swipe: ToadMan moves to the square in front of him and pushes him for
a lot of damage. Evade quickly.

Tadpole Rush: The two lily pads send a tadpole down their respective rows
to confuse MegaMan. Dodge them quickly.

ToadMan is definitely a notch above other bosses you've faced so far. His
attacks are fast and he isn't easy to hit. Notice that there are two lily
pads on the far rows on the enemy side that move back and forth. ToadMan
appears on one and when you go to his row he immediately moves to the other
row. In addition, he usually hides. Not to mention with electric damage he
will be getting multiple hits by comboing a paralysing attack with a high
damage attack. What you need to do is bait him towards you by first and
foremost evading all his attacks and attacking the lily that is heading further
away from you. ToadMan will move to the lily pad near you so that when you
are ready you can hit him with swords and other high damaging attacks. The
faster you finish this battle, the better. Your ShockWaves will also help;
send it down one row that is empty and move to ToadMan's row and he will
move into the path of the attack.
_______
GateMan
V1: 600HP Famous
V2: 800HP Famous
V3: 1000HP Famous

Gate Cannon: GateMan shoots a high-damaging blast of gravity down a single
row. Dodge by moving rows.

RemoGate: GateMan summons a gate that blocks his row and is continuously
homing on MegaMan's location (effectively blocking GateMan from most attacks).

Gate Claw: The gate GateMan summons targets you and THEN charges at MegaMan,
sending a claw to deal massive damage. One row only.

Marching Warriors: GateMan sends three marching mini warriors to attack you.
They move as you move, so there are two ways to defend; either, hit GateMan
when he is about to use this attack, so he stops using them OR quickly
dodge around the warriors by tricking them into going far to one side.

GateMan isn't too tough to begin with. Most of his attacks have HUGE
recovery time. It only gets difficult when he summons the RemoGate and you
have to worry about two or more things at once. There are two main ways to
hit GateMan; with WideSwords or with fast ranged attacks. Cannons are very
ineffective against him. In order to render his RemoGate useless, AreaGrab
him and stand in the same row as the gate, blocking it from hurting you.
GateMan's attacks are powerful, so delete him quickly.
________
SnakeMan
V1: 900HP Mrs. Millions
V2: 1200HP Mrs. Millions
V3: 1500HP Mrs. Millions

> Wood <

Machine-gun Fire: SnakeMan fires some weird needles at you like a gun at
rapid speed from his hand. Dodge quickly.

Snake: SnakeMan constantly summons snakes that appear in certain rows from
the empty row in his area. Anticipate their movement and location and dodge
as necessary. If not, destroy them accordingly.

Viper Strike: SnakeMan lunges at MegaMan and tries to bite him. Dodge it.

SnakeMan is a very unique Navi because he is the most cowardly Navi that
ever existed. He hides in an impenetrable vase until you are not in the same
row as him and assaults you that way. Easiest way to take him down? Indirect
attacks, or fast hits from standard guns. LifeSwd is very effective.
__________
ThunderMan
V1: 700HP Raoul
V2: 1000HP Raoul
V3: 1300HP Raoul

> Electric <

Storm Clouds: Three clouds hover on all three rows between ThunderMan and
MegaMan. If MegaMan gets trapped, the one cloud that is blocked shocks him.

Bolt Fury: All three clouds fire a burst of electricity down each row. Dodge
if possible.

Thunderbolt: ThunderMan sends a thunderbolt to hit MegaMan a few times. Dodge
quickly, because one attack means that all of them WILL hit you (paralysis).

ThunderMan is quite simply, one of the most annoying enemies in the game. He
is lazy in the fact that his clouds do all the work for him. He just stands
safely behind them, sniping with thunder while his clouds use support attacks.
Find a way to bypass one of the clouds and AreaGrab to hit him with some
sword techniques. Most standard shooting attacks are going to miss; waves
and even bombs are useful for hitting him. Make use of Higsby's present of
a TreeBomb1. Also, use his weakness to wood to your advantage.
________
ProtoMan
V1: 800HP Chaud
V2: 1200HP Chaud
V3: 1500HP Chaud

Wide Sword: ProtoMan appears in the panel in front of MegaMan and swipes for
massive damage. Dodge.

Long Sword: ProtoMan appears in the same row as MegaMan (if he is in range)
and swipes for massive damage. Dodge.

Sonic Boom: ProtoMan swipes his sword, cutting the air and generating a
wave that travels towards MegaMan, covering two rows in width. Dodge.

ProtoMan is a very predictable Navi, but the problem is that he attacks
repetitively, consecutively, quickly and with very powerful blows. His
sword attacks cannot be taken lightly; if his blows connect you will be
punished. A strategy I recommend is to use fast chips and your own swords if
possible. Once he attacks once, if you have an Aqua Style, charge (Aqua
increases the time of charge) for 1 second and punish him when he misses you.
Very effective strategy. In his V3 form, he constantly tries to deceive you
with Sonic Boom in combination with his blades, so watch carefully. You
need move a LOT in order to defeat him.
_______
HeatMan
V1: 900HP Match
V2: 1100HP Match
V3: 1300HP Match

> Heat <

Fire Tower: HeatMan fires a stream of fire that travels across rows (semi
homing). Lure them to one side and immediately go to the opposite side. The
flames stay ignited for a duration of a few seconds.

Fire Stamp: HeatMan retracts his arms and head, turning into a metal box.
He tries to crush you like a Flappy virus. He leaves an imprint of a Magma
Panel behind. Dodge like you would with any old virus.

Ignition: HeatMan makes several random panels ignite randomly for a second
and he repeats this several times. They flash for a second before they
ignite, so dodge.

HeatMan begins as a typical Navi that can defeated with almost anything. His
V3 form is powerful, but not exceptional. Fire Stamp will be used often to
trap you and Ignition is also used frequently. Fire Tower will only be used
when you are certainly trapped.

Secret Navis
------------
__________
PharoahMan
V1: 1200HP Guards entry to WWW Area 2
V2: 1500HP WWW Area 1, dead end north of GMD to the eastern side
V3: 1800HP Randomly in WWW Area 1 after defeating V2

Sarcophagus Beam: The two sarcophaguses protecting him will align themselves
with your row and fire a green beam.

Black Box: PharoahMan summons a black box to crush you.

Pharoah Trap: PharoahMan sets a trap. Meteors will rain down in your area
if you hit the switch.

Fire Rat: The two sarcophaguses protecting him shoot a Fire Rat at you.

Wind: The two sarcophaguses blow wind to make you activate the trap.

At this stage of the game, PharoahMan should cause no problems. Avoid his
attacks and finish him with your best Program Advances.
_________
NapalmMan
V1: 1400HP Guards entry to WWW Area 3
V2: 1700HP WWW Area 2, the second last moving path from the main crossroads
V3: 2000HP Randomly in WWW Area 2 after defeating V2

> Heat <

Machine Guns: Two machine guns that are homing (similar to Canodumb) emerge
and fire down the rows they appear on. Dodge.

Napalm Fire: NapalmMan fires consecutive bombs that crack and burn on impact.
Dodge if possible.

Napalm Bomb: NapalmMan targets the centre of your area with a giant
crosshair and launches a massive bomb. Dodge by heading to the corners.

NapalmMan is very easy if you defeat him quickly. Most of his attacks are
easy to avoid, it's just that he uses multiple attacks at once and it proves
distracting. Gater, LifeSwd3 and whatever else you can muster. Use Invisibles
for valuable defence.
_________
PlanetMan
V1: 1600HP Final area in the deepest part of WWW Area 3
V2: 1900HP Dead end where PMD is located
V3: 2200HP Randomly in WWW Area 3 after defeating V2

> Wood <

Elemental Orbs: Two random elemental orbs surround him. They are NEVER the
same element as your Style Change. The heat orb uses a Fire Tower, the aqua
orb uses an Aqua Tower, the electric orb uses an electric ball. When he is
on *very* low HP, he uses a wood orb to heal his HP.

Summon Rocket: PlanetMan summons a rocketship to fire at you. It repetitively
fires down each row until it is destroyed.

Cosmic Rain: PlanetMan becomes black like a black hole. He sucks you towards
him and meteors start flying towards you from the back-most row he possesses.

PlanetMan's orbs are mere distractions. Due to his distinct weakness to wood,
you will have an easier time. Again, defence comes in handy (ie. Invisible).
____
Bass
SuperNavi: 1000HP Before fighting Gospel
Real     : 2000HP Aura 100 regenerative
Defeat PlanetMan and try to escape from WWW Area 1
SP       : 2000HP Aura 150 regenerative
Collect 247/250 Battle Chips in your Library

Bass Buster: Bass sends a ball of gunfire down one row. Dodge quickly.

When he charges -
Yellow; Bass Barrage: Bass charges up his twin guns and fires a massive number
of shots along the rows. Energy balls travel across the rows. This is almost
impossible to avoid.

Blue; Infinite Buster: Bass charges up his twin guns and fires shots in an
"8" formation. This is also very difficult to avoid.

Red; Super Bass Barrage: Bass does the same thing as his Bass Barrage except
the shots now appear in your area. This is also almost impossible to avoid.

Earthbreaker: Bass charges up his hand and appears in front of you. He strikes
the panel you are on (or were on), cracking the panel and dealing massive
damage.

Doesn't look good, does it? The ultimate boss of the game has a massive
arsenal of attacks now. All of his attacks are high-damaging, he is very
hard to damage AND most of his attacks are almost impossible to avoid. Use
your best Program Advances and use plenty of Invisibles to your advantage.

v. Chip Traders = (CHPTR) =
   ============
A reference for every Chip Trader in the game.

Standard
--------
Official Center

Chip Trader Special
-------------------
Netopia Town
Marine Harbor
Marine Harbor Metroline Station

Retro Chip Trader
-----------------
Dad's Lab
Okuden Valley entrance
First Class section, Airplane
Den Airport Arrival Lobby

* I haven't listed all the chips that are produced by the Chip Traders,
merely because it would take a long, long time to generate.

vi. Customising Folders = (CUSTM) =
    ===================
This section is for beginners who want to hone their skills for folder-building
to become at least decent at folder-building. For a more in-depth guide, check
out RPG Wizard's RFF/Combo List guide. Anyway, there are a few basics that
must be known by any folder builder.

Theme: A Folder normally has a theme, a central idea. It relies on this as
its strategy. This theme should be flexible, but easy to understand and use.
Themes aren't all that easy to make early on in the game, but become simple
during the latter stages (WWW Area and so on).

Speed: A Folder needs to be fast. It makes more sense that Chips are in
multiples of 5 (maximum) to have the maximum potential for the combo/theme
to work. It also makes sense if they are in the same chip code, so that they
are harmonious with each other.

Versatile: A Folder needs to be versatile. If you see a major weakness, address
it! A good example is that even GateMan Strikes, considered the cheapest
Folder in the game is not effective against Protectos.

That's about it really. Find Chips, experiment, have fun and use the ones
you find work best for you! That's all there is to folder-building.

vii. Netbattles = (NBATT) =
     ==========
Again, the RFF is an ideal place to go for the best information on Netbattling.
I have a few basic pointers that need to be said:

Surprise: Random and unpredictable strategies work best. If your opponent
doesn't see whats coming, all the better.

Don't abuse Gater: GateMan Strikes screws over Netbattles for obvious
reasons. Don't be cheap, play fair.

Keep more than one folder: Have a multitlude of Folders ready to be used, so
that you can keep changing around, trying to deceive your opponent.

Gospel Duplication: Gospel Duping is very important to Netbattles (refer to
Gospel Duping). Use it as much as you can.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
                            X. SECRETS = (SECRT) =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
This section has a few bits and pieces of hidden things in the game.

i. Special Button Codes = (SPBCD) =
   ====================
There are certain chips that can do more than one attack by holding down A
and rapidly entering a button combination.

VarSwrd
-------
LongSwrd: down, down, right, right
WideSwrd: up, right, down
FtrSwrd: left, down, right
LifeSwrd: down, left, up, right, down
TriSlashWave: left, B, right, B

^ A VarSwrd is very useful for its versatility and is killer in the right
hands.

Fists
-----
BrnzFist: down, down, right, right
- A rocket punch is fired down the row
SilvFist: right, up, left, down, right (Rocket Punch each row)
- A rocket punch is fired down every row
GoldFist: B, down, down, right, right, B (3 Rocket Punch each row)
- A rocket punch is fired three times in every row

ii. Gospel Duping = (GSPDP) =
    =============
Gospel Duping, or Gospel Duplication, is a glitch in the game that allows
multiple copies of chips (chips ONLY) to be generated; most useful for
one-of-a-kind chips.

How does it work?
-----------------
You see, when you defeat Gospel the game saves your progress, but you are
returned to your previous save point. Because of a glitch in programming,
if you purchase a one-of-a-kind chip, for example, defeat Gospel and
watch the ending, when you return to the previous save point the chip will
still be available to be bought again and again.

What is it useful for?
----------------------
Any powerful but rare chips, including BMDs, PMDs and purchased chips.

Upgrades cannot be Gospel Duped.

The beginning of the end.

i. Revision History = (HSTRY) =
   ================
VERSION 1.00 JANUARY 12 2006
Basically everything complete.

VERSION 1.1 APRIL 3 2006
Edited two sections. I didn't bother changing the format of this guide
because it's too damn big. Plus, it's good enough although not a brilliant
format. I got rid of the "controversial" stuff. Oh noes! I lost KB! I frankly
don't care.

FINAL VERSION APRIL 20 2006
I admit I was feeling annoyed on my last update. I've calmed down, ironed out
the last few kinks, brought my KB back up to 500, and made sure that this
guide is 100% complete. Next target: MegaMan Battle Network (the original).
See you there when I'm done.

iv. Credits = (THANK) =
    =======
My efforts would have been for nought on two accounts; first, if Capcom had
not made this gem of a game, and second, if CJayC, Sailor Bacon and the rest
of the GameFAQs crew had not given 100% tireless dedication and effort to
GameFAQs, thus giving me the opportunity to write this guide. It is also of
worthy note to thank all of my other hosts for giving publicity to my guides.

A special thanks to Gray Fox, his guide helped me get through MegaMan Battle
Network 2 myself the first time I went through the game. I also thank
Zidanet_129, LIncarnadine, Spark Phoenix, Xel23, RPG Wizard, and ELian for
their specialist guides.

I highly recommend checking out the guides written by Derkin, RedWave, Gray
Fox, and Dark RPG Wizard. In fact, check out the entire GameFAQs site if
you haven't already.

Special thanks to WhizKid for creating the folder GateMan Strikes. Dark RPG
Wizard should be commended for making the RFF (Renowned Folder FAQ).

The reader deserves full credit for even looking at this guide and I encourage
any form of feedback.

One final thanks to my brother, who proofread my work and provided invaluable
support.

I apologise for any inconsistencies or errors discovered in this guide and
encourage any person who finds an error to notify me as soon as possible.

FINAL VERSION NOTICE
====================
As this is the very last version of this guide, I can't do much about any
mistakes in the guide. I am more than happy to answer any questions, queries
and comments you have. Just don't expect me to update this, because I won't.
