This is something new in Battle Network 3... TIME TRIALS... You can only
do the time trials after defeating Serenade the Underking. You should have 3 stars by then.
Time trials are trials where you have to defeat a Version 2 navi within a time limit but
you can only use the Extra Folder. A folder that cannot be modified. This guide is to help
players beat the Time Trials.

What good are they??? Well basically you can test your abilities as well as earning
either a Serenade S chip or a Dark Aura A chip depending on your version.
But there's one good thing about this, you can modify the Navi Cust into the
best one yet, only the Extra Folder is the difficult part.



If you win a time trial, the black navi whom you spoke to will be happy for you and
say Serenade will reward you if you complete all the time trials. The last Black navi you beat
will give you the chip listed in Part 2.



You must not sell this product and claim it as your own.

Return to Secret Area 3 to Serenade's spot at the top of the stairs.A trio
of Navis await at the top and each one has a challenge for you. You can
choose to take on timed battles against DarkManV2, JapanManV2 and ProtoManV2
using your Extra Folder. Each Navi must be deleted within 45 Seconds except
JapanManV2 which is 40 Seconds. If you can't beat them, return to the surface
and pick the folder you think best suits these challenges.Note that you need not
break down any Number statues for these Time Trials.



Fire Tower 150 dmg - He will use Fire Tower at the start of the battle
Killer's Beam 150 dmg - When he's orange, he will use this if same row
Ice Wave 150 dmg - Shoot a 2 Sq. ice wave if on same row
Dark Shadow 150 dmg - Shadow's attack of knives!
Black Wing 75 dmg - Bats come out of this hole

Recommended Folder: App.Folder
Why: The Prism and HeatSpread Combo should lower DarkMan's HP to 1000 so use the remaining
RndmMeteor and Metalman chips to finish the job.



Thousand Spear 150 dmg - He will use a Sq. away so go Left or right ot dodge this as it
does 450 dmg in 1 hit
Spinning Reflect 200 dmg - He will reflect your attack
Straight Spear 200 dmg - If on last most row, he will use this
Backup 150 dmg - Once half of his HP is gone, he will send tiny men to steal panels

Recommended Folder: N1 Folder C
Why: Using 2 Areagrabs then 4 panelOuts then 3 Snake chips(First Atk+10, Wood+30)
should amount to 960 dmg Plus 480 dmg Plus 480 dmg = A whopping 1920 Dmg!!!



Sonicboom 150 dmg - Shoots a sonicboom 2 Sq. wide
Wide sword 150 dmg - Zooms in and uses a wide sword
Fighter sword 150 dmg - Zooms in and use a Fighter Sword
Surprise Sword 150 dmg - Jumps behind you to use a Wide Sword
Delta Ray Edge 150 dmg - If on middle line, uses 3 Sword slashes to stun you for a while.

Recommended folders: N1 Folder C and App.Folder
Why: N1 Folder C's trick is risky since Protoman has AreaGrabs too but if you're fast
you'll pull it off. App Folder is great for that Darkman combo.

Back in Secret Net 2, a purple navi by the lower left teleporter challenges you
to defeat MistmanV2/BowlmanV2(depending on version) within 45 seconds.



Mist Tackle 80 dmg - the lamp launches MistMan ahead
PoisPunch 80 dmg - MistMan appears in a Poismist and punches you
SoulGang 40 dmg - 2 gangars appear and try to hold your position for a Mist Tackle

Recommended Folder: App. Folder
Why: Good question but Mistman's Tackles should be avoided to make way for RndmMeteor.
It lowers His HP to 1000 if possible, then perform the DarkMan Prism Trick down to 400HP.
The use the remaining Metalman chips.



Gatling Pins 80 dmg - Shoots lots of Pins, the golden ones don't bounce when shot!!!
Towel Bowl 80 dmg - 3 pins come from the ground, BowlMan throws his ball at you
Bowling Bomber 80 dmg - The pins hit by the above attack will fall on you

Recommended Folder: N1 Folder C
Why: Using the DarkMan Prism trick will make BowlMan hit himself so use the Snakes Trick
this time.

In the little alcove to the far left, another navi challenges you to delete
KingmanV2 within 40 seconds.



Knight 100 dmg - A knoght stomps on you
Pawn 60 dmg - A Pawn slashes 2 Sq. Forward
CheckMate 100 dmg - KingMan traps you, then jumps on you

Recommended Folder: App. Folder
Why: Snakes is impossible to do because of the Pawns but The DarkMan Prism Trick will work.

Above the teleporter back, take on MetalManV2 and beat him within 20 seconds.



Metal Wheel 40 dmg - MetalMan launches a Boomer like wheel
Metal Missle 40 dmg - MetalMan shoots 4 missiles
Metal Fist 80 dmg - MetalMan zooms in and punches

Recommended Folder: App. Folder, FamFolder, N1 Folder C
Why: MetalMan is easy to defeat but the hardest of the 3 will be N1 Folder C so
stick to the App. Folder.

By the rightmost teleporter, a navi challenges you to delete GutsManV2 within
15 seconds.



SonicWave 40 dmg - Like the Mettaur2
Gutspunch 60 dmg - Like the GutsPunch chip
GutsHammer 40 dmg - Hammers you and cracks panels

Recommended Folder: App. Folder, N1 Folder C
Why: Isn't it obvious???

Back to Secret Net 1, the navis on the right side of the main square have copies
of FlameManV2, PlantManV2 and DrillManV2 to beat within 30 seconds each, DrillManV2
is 45 Seconds.



Fireblaze 80 dmg - A row of fire
ChaosFlame 80 dmg - Shoots fire like this

M-Mega Panel
F-FlamMan Panel
H-The attack


The place where MegaMan is... Is the safe spot

Recommended Folder: N1 Folder C
Why: The flames are irritating so use the Snake trick again, FlameMan's hard but bear
with it.



Rose needle 80 dmg - Shoots a Rose needle
Plant Weed 40 dmg - Sends vines to follow you like the Vineys

Recommended folder: App. Folder, FamFolder
Why: They have some great Fire based chips that'll burn this guy down. FlamMan and the
Heat Spread P.A. is effective here.



Drill Drive 120 dmg - Drills in your area, one of them is DrillMan
Panel Crusher 120 dmg - Glow panels should be avoided, DrillMan cracks them
Rubble 100 dmg - After the above attack... Rubble will fall
Triple Hole 120 dmg - 3 holes send lots of Drills

Recommended Folder: N1 Folder C, N1 Folder A
Why: What's to be said? Just use the Snakes Trick to get good Time results.
N1 Folder A: I deleted DrillMan in just 25 seconds!! This folder has a lot of Sword chips which
makes it an ideal folder, make sure you have the FstGuage Navi Cust Block

On the other side, Navis with the remaining bosses are ready for you.
Delete DesertManV2 for 45 seconds, Bubbleman within 40, Beastman within 30
and Flashman within 10 seconds!!!!!



Neon Light 30 dmg - Send 2 types of Neon Lights. One is homing the other is not
Spark Arm 45 dmg - Aregrabs when you are stunned by lightbulbs to spark you

Recommended Folders: FamFolder, N1 Folder C
Why: Flashman's Time is short but use 1 or 2 Snakes and he's down. PlantMan works well too.



Beast Ray 40 dmg - A ray of Beastman
Jumping claw 40 dmg - Jumps and slashes
Wild Rush 40 dmg - Slashes 5 times

Recommended Folder: App. Folder
Why: DarkMan Prism trick, MetalMan HP remains. That's all.



Bubble Parade 80 dmg - Bubbles of 1 HP pop out
Aqua Shot 100 dmg - BubbleMan fires these Low on HP
Fish Missle 80 dmg - A bubble contains fish that charges
Fiddle Crab 80 dmg - BubbleMan throw a Ratton crab
Mine 80 dmg - A bubble contains a mine

Recommended Folder: App. Folder
Why: Things look bad since the hole and stone in BubbleMan's arena. App. Folder's the best
to use here, trust me.



Lion Head 80 dmg - DesertMan's hands dash forward
Sand Trap 80 dmg - Sand flows on 2 panels
Sand Tumble 120 dmg - Hand becomes sand block that smashes MegaMan

Recommended Folders: FamFolder, App. Folder
Why: N1 Folder C stinks here because of the hands so these are the best. try to unleash
all powerful chips before time runs out.

Once all of these navis are defeated, you earn the Serenade S chip for White and 
the Dark Aura A chip for Blue.

Basically, the best folders are N1 Folder C and Apprentice folder.
The Famfolder is the 3rd best folder.



There is a way to beat FlashManV2 in the Time Trials in a few seconds, follow my way.
First install FstGauge and get the N1-Folder C folder.
Now do as I say.
1) Enter FlashManV2 battle
2) Use PanlOut3
3) Use Snakes with Atk+10 and Wood+30
4) Damage done to FlashMan Beta should be 480 dmg
5) When he's stunned use your buster quickly
6) The Busting level should be about 1.5 seconds around that time.
7) Congrats! You did it!
Please contact me with quick time trial defeats please!

Before the Time trials, you must defeat BassGS.
Go back to Secret net 3 after beating Serenade.
Feed the bug frag trader there 300 bugfrags. Then Jack out where you jacked
in. There will be an earthquake.
Jack in, in Secret net 1 where DarkMan was, there should be a ghost navi, if so
continue ahead to Secret Net 3. You should see a Ghost navi where JapanMan was and
the path to the Bug Frag Trader.
Go back to the BugFrag trader. Save after the Press program makes you bigger.
you'll meet a reborn Bass, fueled by bugs and the remnants of the bug born Gospel
beast. Before the battle, saving is required and getting NorthWind chips too.


HP:2000 Aura of 200

Explosion 300 dmg - Bass charges and shoots a heck lot of energy balls
AirBurst 300 dmg - Bass does not charge for this attack, less balls than above atk.
Earth Breaker 300 dmg - Bass jumps and throws his arm to break 3 panels
Gospel Cannon 300 dmg - Bass shoots a Gospel fire cannon breather, stay out of back row.
Shoot Claw 300 dmg - Bass points then 3 claws fall down
Banishing World 500 dmg - A stronger version of the Gospel Cannon

Bass has retained his attacks from his previous incarnation, only they
hurt more this time.
When Bass points, get ready for a Claw attack followed by a Gospel Cannon.
Low on HP-Bass unleashes a powerful version of the Gospel Cannon.
NorthWind chips are recommended here as well as BodyGuard P.A.
Geddon3 + Sanctuary is great.

When defeated, Bass gives up his Bass X chip in White and Bass+ in Blue.


These tips are good as they provide what not to do and what to do.

Don't use Elec style in the time trials.
Bug style is probably the best style to get now.
HubBatch is the best Navi Block to put in the Navi Cust.
N1Folder C is one of the best folders to use.
Make sure you have 2 area grabs and 4 panel outs.
Use them now.
After that use The Snake,Atk+10 and Wood+30 followed by 2 more Snake chips.
This will knock out any navi in the time trials especially FlashMan.
Note that FlameMan, GutsMan, ProtoMan and DrillMan are hard as FlameMan never 
moves to the right most row and DrillMan makes it hard for Areagrabs.
ProtoMan and GutsMan will use Areagrab too if you grab their areas.
FastGuage is a MUST put item in your Navi Cust.

DarkMan or (Put other Navi names here) tips(Prism) App.Folder
Make sure you have the Prism Chip followed by a Heat or Bub Spread P.A.
Use the Prism then the Heat or Bub Spread P.A.

Your enemy should take 600 damage or 1200 depending on the weaknesses

Credit to Freezeman and Dissonance2003 for this.


Return to Undernet 7, the curtains will give way and you should get a Guardian O
and a HPMemory. At the top, open the door after BassGS'S defeat to get a Purple mystery
data containing GigFldr 1 Program.

Or since now you have 4 Stars, you can now get your DeltaRay Z or your Balance Y.
