--------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a guide that tells you how to get the forms, their stats, and
my personal opinion. It also tells you where you get the EX Skills 
from. This will help you complete the game entirely, and it will also
make the game much more easier. *Note* I do not know
all of the locations of the cyber elves, so go to Wingnut's
guide on gamefaqs.com for a complete list of the cyber elves.

                               -Forms-                               
--------------------------------------------------------------------

This is basically a list of Zero's forms, and how to get them.


===Active Form===

Description: This form is actually one of the most interesting forms
in the game. This form allows you to do a "rolling slash", just like
from Mega Man Zero. When you do a jump-slash  or a dash-slash, Zero 
now does a frontflip with the saber, hitting the enemy more times.
It also has the highest speed rating of any form.

Requirements: Kill 20 enemies with a dash-slash in one stage.

Stats: Attack:** Defense:** Speed:****

My Opinion: This form is one of my favorites, as I am a big 
saber user. I think the rolling slash is more useful 
then some of the Ex Skills. :D

===Defense Form===

Description: This form boosts your defense greatly, but it
leaves your attack rating very low.This form has the greatest
defense in the game.

Requirements: Kill 20 enemies with a charged Shield Boomerang
hit in one stage.

Stats: Attack* Defense:**** Speed:**

My Opinion: This is a great form, even though the Attack power is
low, because as far as I can tell, it doesn't affect charged
shots. So this form is best used against bosses that have elemental
weaknesses.

===Energy Form===

Description: This form makes more energy capsules appear. Nothing
too special.

Requirements: Get 25 energy capsules in one stage.

Stats: Attack:*** Defense:** Speed:*

My Opinion: Nothing great. I never use it, because it's pretty much
useless. Unless you are filling up your sub tanks.

===Erase Form===

Desription: This form lets you erase shots with your Saber. Again,
nothing great.

Requirements: Reflect 30 shots back at enemies with your Sheild
Boomerang in one stage.

Stats: Attack:** Defense:*** Speed:**

My Opinion: This form is okay, but not the greatest.

===Power Form===

Description: This form is awesome. High Attack power and good Defense
make a great combo. You can only do the final slash of the combo with
this form, but it's worth it. Also has the highest Attack power in
the game.

Requirements: Pull 30 things with your Chain Rod in one stage.

Stats: Attack:**** Defense:** Speed:*

My Opinion: Awesome. Enough said.

===Proto Form===

Description: This form is horrible. It has the highest Attack power 
in the game, but the defense stinks. You get hurt so much in this
form you can't even enjoy it. Stick to the Power Form.

Requirements: Beat the game once. Easy as that.

Stats: Attack:**** Defense:* Speed:**

My Opinion:.........

===Rise Form===

Description: This form changes your Saber combo a bit. The third 
slash now goes straight up.

Requirements: Destroy 20 enemies with a jump slash in one stage.


Stats: Attack:** Defense:** Speed:***

My Opinion: Not a bad form, most helpful early on in the game.

===Ultimate Form===

Description: This form allows you to use shortcuts to use charged
shots:
         Buster Lvl 1: Down, Diaganal-Down-Fwd, Forward
         Buster Lvl 2: Down, Diaganal-Down-Fwd, Forward, Down,
                       Diaganal-Down-Fwd, Forward
         Saber: Forward, Diaganal-Down-Fwd, Down
         Chain Rod: Forward, Down, Diaganal-Down-Fwd
         Shield Boomerang: Down, Diaganal-Down-Back, Back
  
Requirements: Use every single Cyber Elf in the game.

Stats: Attack:*** Defense:*** Speed:***

My Opinion:This is the most well rounded form in the game, and my
favorite. I don't get the shortcut thing, though.

===X Form===

Description: This form makes your Buster fire more rapidly, and
it becomes stronger.

Requirements: Kill 50 enemies with your Buster in one stage.

Stats: Attack:*** Defense:** Speed:***

My Opinion: Fairly good, mostly for you buster-lovers out there.
Yes, all three of you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the place where you find out what the EX Skills do and how
the bosses change after you recieve them. You usually only recieve
an EX Skill if you acheive an A or S rank. You can equip EX Skills
on the Form screen.

===Laser Shot===

Destroy: Hyleg Ouroubockle

Effect: When you shoot a non-elemental shot from your Buster, it turns
into a piercing laser beam.

Hyleg's New Ability: Hyleg breaks up the snake and a laser beam shoots
form one to the other. the only safe spot is the end of the snake.

===Triple Shot===

Destroy: Polar Kamrous

Effect: When you use a charged Ice Buster shot, it turns into an arrow
that splits into three after it hits an enemy.

Polar's New Ability: Polar creates a large ice chunk in front of him 
that blocks all attacks. Then he hits it and knocks off the top, causing
ice chunks to rain down on you. Then he does it again with the lower 
half.

===Spark Shot===

Destroy: Panther Flauclaws

Effect: When you use a charged Thunder Buster shot it turns into an
attack that goes up and down upon contact with an enemy.

Panther's New Ability: Panther crouches down and glows a vibrant orange,
and electricity surges through the train car that he's on.

===Tenshouzan===

Destroy: Phoenix Magnion.

Effect: With the Saber with the Flame chip equipped, press up+attack to do
a flaming uppercut with the Saber.

Phoenix's New Ability: Phoenix will now go on fire and dash towards you. If
he hits you, he will grab you and throw you in the air, then rush at you like
a giant fireball. 

===Sengatotsu===

Destroy: Kuwagust Anchus

Effect: With the Thunder Saber, do a dash slash to use a powerful blitzing 
move.

Kuwagust's New Ability: Kuwagust blows a cyclone at you that pushes you away
instead of towards him. Then he does a leap in the air and comes at you 
increadibly fast.

===Energy Chain===

Destroy: Burble Hekelot

Effect: By using the Chain Rod you can suck out enemies life and refill 
yours. This is done by holding the attack button.

Burble's New Ability: Burble will now lash out his tongue and grab you,
sucking away your life and refilling his.

===Sharp Edge===

Destroy: Fairy Leviathian

Effect: With the Ice Saber, jump then press down+attack to do a downward
Saber attack.

Leviathian's New Ability: Leviathian uses a whirlpool to suck you in, then she 
comes down on you with her spear.

===Blast Shot===

Destroy: Fighting Fefnir

Effect: A charged Flame Buster shot makes another explosion after it hits,
causing more damage.

Fefnir's New Ability: He sends HUGE waves of fire from the floor, sort of like
Phoenix Magnion.

===Kougenjin===

Destroy: Sage Harputia

Effect: With the Saber, press down+attack (while on the ground) and you send
a wave slash in front of you.

Haputia's New Ability: Harputia does a huge screen-wide dash sending massive 
wave slashes down on you.

===Filter Shield===

Destroy: Raindow Devil mk-II

Effect: Use the Sheild Boomerang right before the enemy bullet hits you to turn
it into an Energy Capsule.

Rainbow Devil's New Ability: The Rainbow Devil turns dark blue then slowly moves
toward you. Watch out because pieces of debris fall down on you.
