is more than one enemy.
Utilize: Geddon2. DEFINITELY Geddon2. Unless your enemies happen to have

S = Spreaded area

Utilize: Although this P.A. IS time-freezing, the accuracy is still
         important. Since it's armor-piercing, Prisms will just get
         destroyed, so utilize stunning Chips like FlashMan/Plantman to
         your advantage.

                PPPEEE
                PMPEEE
                PPPEEE

Despite where Megaman is, the P.A. hits the whole Enemy Area.
Utilize: Prism. DEFINITELY Prism. Prism in enemies' Center Panel +
         2xHero = OH SO VERY DEAD. Also, Atk+ Chips helps out too.

PrixPowr / Grand Prix Power | Program Advance #31
Brotherhood1 *-Brotherhood2 *-KingMan V5 K/MistMan V5 M/BowlMan V5 B (either one
of them would work)
Damage per Hit: 300
Number of Hits: Random +1
Description: BowlMan appears and shoots 2 MistMen on each of the enemy row,
             dealing 300 Damage each. Then, KingMan appears, and jumps into
             the enemy area, doing his Cross-Geyser attack for another 300
             Damage.
Range of Hit:

BowlMan + MistMan:

                PPEEEE
                PMEEEE
                PPEEEE

KingMan:

                PPPPEP
                PMPEEE
                PPPPEP

Utilize: Cliched, but Prism helps out YET AGAIN. Prism in enemies' Center
         Panel + PrixPowr (with NO Atk+ Chips) = easy 1800 Damage.

5. Master Style P.A. (^5)

I know it's not right for a Program Advance to hag a unique section of this
FAQ, but since this P.A. is placed in #32 in the P.A. List in the game, this
should be the best place for it to be located.

MstrStyl / Master Style | Program Advance #32
Salamander-Daifunsui-Thunderbolt-GaiaBlade *
(Salamndr-Fountain-Bolt-GaiaBlde *)
Damage per Hit: 100
Number of Hits: 1 + X, X varies based on enemy HP
Description: Megaman splits into 3 Styles (HeatGuts, AquaCust, ElecTeam)
             and then start to attack the closest enemy 8 times, each time
             with a different attack (Punch/Kick/WideSwrd) and different
             Style Type and Element. (If the enemy died before 8 hits and
             another enemy is still alive, Megaman will continue on the
             assult on the next enemy) After the 8 hits (less than 8 times
             if the enemy dies before 8 hits were sent; if there are multiple
             enemies Megaman will go strike the next closest one until all
             enemies die or all 8 hits were delivered) Megaman goes back to
             his original location, charges up with different Style Elements
             flashing through, stops at his current Style's color, and causes
             a piercing explosion that hits the whole Battlefield.
Range of Hit:

                EEEEEE
                EMEEEE
                EEEEEE

Note: the first 8 hits are based on the location of the closest enemy so it
won't
be shown here.
Utilize: Interestingly, this P.A. can't be too utilized, other than attaching
         an Atk+ Chip in it.

6. FAQs (^6)

Q: How exactly do I form a P.A.?
A: Check the P.A. you want to use, and choose ALL the necessary Chips for
   executing the P.A. IN ORDER AT ONCE in the Custom Window. When you select OK,
   the screen should go dark and the 3/4 Chips that form the P.A. will flash,
   then merge into the P.A..

Q: Why don't people like the Zeta- P.A.s?
A: Simply because the Zeta-P.A.s take 3 Chips with DIFFERENT Codes to compose,
   and are therefore unable to be boosted with Atk+ Chips. Also, more than one
   Code in your Folder (excluding *-Code) will lower your fludity like crazy.

Q: Why don't people like DeuxHero/2xHero/BodyGrd P.A.s?
A: Because they're too cheap. You don't need ANY aimings for them to hit the
   enemies. This completely takes the fun factor out of the game.

Q: Why do people diss the "Special P.A.," Master Style?
A: Although it IS strong and hits multiple enemies, it's composed of 4
MEGA-CLASS
   Chips. Which means, you can have only ONE copy of this P.A. in your Folder.
   Unless you have Wood Styles (which allow you to utilize the GaiaBlade in this
   P.A. by sucking the Attack of the other 3 Mega-Class Chips), this P.A. won't
   do you too much good when you have to sacrifice some Chips to ADD for more
Chips.

Q: Speaking of Master Style, why can't I form the P.A.? I'm sure I used all 4
   Chips IN ORDER!!
A: Ahh yes. One of the most commonly-seen problems posted on the Boards. This
   problem is caused by the fact that there are TWO of each Elemental Mega Chips
   that works basically in the same way (Prominence/Salamander,
WaterLine/Fountain,
   Lightning/Bolt, and GaiaSword/GaiaBlade). Make sure you're using the STRONGER
   versions of the Elemental Mega Chips. Their Chip Icons' background have a
   black circle around the "S", and they look darker than their weaker versions.
   People also tend to mistake GaiaBLADE with GaiaSWORD, so check to see if you
   ARE using the right ones.
