5. Introduction [^5]
--------------------------------------------

Welcome to the Cross/BeastOut FAQ for Rockman.EXE 6! This is the first EXE6
FAQ written by Zidanet. Being the lazy ass he is, you know you'll find at least
ten mistakes made by copying from previous FAQs of his in this FAQ, which, if
you report to him, will earn you a space in the credits...... Hopefully.

Here, I will introduce you to the popular Index System, commonly used in many
FAQs these days. People who have read my FAQs in the past would know how they
work.

Here's how you do it: To search for the part that you want, just simply press
and hold "Ctrl" on your keyboard, and press "F" to bring up the "Find..."
window. Type in the keyword (everything included in the [ ], including the ^
sign) and hit Enter. Need an example? Here. If you want to find the
Introductions (although I don't know why anyone would want to...... >_>),
simply hit Ctrl + F, and type in "^5" without the quotation marks. Hit
Enter/Return. You'll be taken to the title of this section right away.

Convenient, no?

--------------------------------------------
6. How Crosses Work [^6]
--------------------------------------------

Navi Crosses and Beast Outs are the new power-up system introduced in
Rockman.EXE 6. It is similar to Soul Unisons in that they both utilize the
power of Navis who are friends of Rockman, but different in that you do not
need to sacrifice Battle Chips in order to use the Crosses.

Once you have received your first Linked Navi (AquaMan in Faltzer, HeatMan
in Greiga), you may press UP on the D-pad to open up the Cross List. Select
one and press A, and it will be automatically equipped. Unlike Soul Unison,
it doesn't even take up one of the five spaces you're given to upload
Chips. See how nice they are?

Crosses have NO limit in number of turns (another improvement from Soul
system), but it can only be equipped when Rockman is in Normal,
Full-Synchro and Angry Mode. However, you lose the Cross as soon as you get
hit by an attack the Cross is weak against, after taking the 2x damage.

Some Crosses can charge elemental Chips up to deal 2x damage. This only applies 
to Chips that does NOT freeze time.

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

--------------------------------------------
8. Greiga Version Crosses [^8]

  damage from LongSword, but WideSword's Sonicboom can hit above and below the
  row Rockman was standing on as well.)
- Using ANY Sword-elemental Chip will give the Charged Buster (Wide Slash) a
  +50 attack bonus. This may only be performed once per battle, and does not
  work for time-freezing Chips or PAs (*coughDreamSwordcough*).
- Charged Buster turns into Wide Slash, which releases a slashwave that hits a
  WideSword range to up to 2 panels ahead (so it's, in a way, a DreamSword-

  ahead, dealing 30+(20xAttack) Fire damage to anything in his way.

--------------------------------------------
9. Beast Out and Beast Over [^9]
--------------------------------------------

As the names of the games suggested, there are two ancient "Dennoujuus",
or "Cyber Beasts" sealed away deep inside the Internet. However, their
powers were released, and Rockman ended up sealing the Dennoujuu inside
his body. In Faltzer version, he sealed Faltzer inside him, and the same
concept applies to Greiga version as well. With the super strong power
of the Beasts, Rockman gained a new ability called Beast Out.

The power of the Beasts work like this:
- Beside Rockman's Emotion Window, there's now a Emotion Counter.
- When Rockman is in Normal mode (blue background, Rockman with normal
  face with mouthguard in Emotion Window), the counter stays there.
- When Rockman uses 50% of the power of the Beasts to achieve a Beast Out,
  the counter goes down by 1 every turn.
- Should the counter reach 0 and the battle is not ended yet, Beast Out
  automatically ends. Rockman enters Tired mode (green background, Rockman
  with tired face with mouthguard down). The Crosses equipped before is
  automatically unequipped and cannot be equipped again in the same battle.
  In this status Rockman can still equip Crosses, but there is a different
  Emotion window for him.
- If you activate Beast Out while Rockman is in Tired Mode, you unleash
  100% of the Beast's power and achieve Beast Over (The Over is supposedly
  from either "Overdrive" or hell, "Take over").
- In Beast Over mode, you lose control of Rockman. He goes into battle
  like DarkInvisble in EXE5. As in, teleports around randomly, unleashes
  Chip attacks (those uploaded to him on that turn, that is) randomly, and
  basically goes crazy.
- If the Beast Over mode ended without the enemies deleted, Rock enters
  Extreme mode. Int Extreme mode, RockBuster is set down to 1/1/1, no
  Crosses can be used, and he also suffers massive loss of HP in the form of a
  Glitch. In other words, you're screwed.

That's the common part about the BeastOuts in the two versions. So what about
the UNCOMMON part? Here they are:

Faltzer:
- Auto-FloatShoes and AirShoes. As in, pretty much floats in the air, Broken
  Panels and Cracked Panels pose no effect to Rockman.
- Non-elemental Chips gain a +30 attack bonus.
- Press and hold B to fire Faltzer Feather that hits to the end of enemy's area
  on Rockman's row, and up to 3 Panels ahead of Rockman, dealing the same
  damage as Rockman's Attack rating.
- Press and hold A to charge non-elemental Chips to use Faltzer Claw, slashing
  in a LongSword then a WideSword range, dealing 50+(10xAttack) damage per
  slash.
- Targets an enemy automatically. When executing attacks, Rockman goes close to
  the enemy VERY quickly before executing the Chip attack.

Greiga:
- Auto-SuperArmor.
- Non-elemental Chips gain a +30 attack bonus.
- Press and hold B to fire Greiga Vulcan that hits to the end of the enemy's
  area on Rockman's row only, dealing the same damage as Rockman's Attack
  rating, but fires VERY fast.
- Press and hold A to charge non-elemental Chips to use Greiga Claw, slashing
  in a LongSword then a WideSword range, dealing 50+(10xAttack) damage per
  slash.
- Targets an enemy automatically. When executing attacks, Rockman goes close to
  the enemy VERY quickly before executing the Chip attack.

--------------------------------------------
10. Beast Crosses (Both Versions) [^10]
--------------------------------------------

Beast Cross is basically a mix of Beast Out and Crossing. To activate a Beast
Cross, you can do it in two ways:

- Beast Out first, then equip a Cross on the next turn. You can use the Beast
  Out for one turn before the Cross is equipped, but the Beast Cross will only
  last for two turns.
- Equip a Cross first, then Beast Out on the next turn. You can use Beast Cross 
  for three turns if you do it this way, but if you get hit by a weakness
  attack before you Beast Out, you cannot use Cross Beast on the next turn.

Considering that Beast Cross is a mix of Beast Out and Cross, it has the
advantages and disadvantages mixed from the two of them too:

- The bonus from the Cross and the Beast Out both presents.
- Beast Out's Buster replaces normal charged Buster from Crosses.
- The Emotion Counter still counts down for Beast Cross.
- The weakness from the Cross still applies.
- The targetting from Beast Out stays.

As mentioned in the previous section, once the Emotion Counter reaches 0, BOTH
the Cross AND the Beast Out will be cancelled. If you activate Beast Over while 
Rockman has a Cross equipped, the Cross will be cancelled automatically.

Finally, the Beast Cross gives Rockman a new Chip charge for non-elemental
Chips as listed below:
Faltzer Version:
- Aqua Beast: Launches Aqua Spiral, a water tornado hitting two panels ahead
              for 10+(10xAttack) non-flinching Aqua damage up to 5 times.
- Tengu Beast: Launches Tengu Storm, firing a tornado that hits two panels
               ahead of Rockman plus a WideSword range one panel following,
               dealing 30+(20xAttack) non-flinching Wind damage. Three hits for
               enemies caught in the WideSword-ranged area.
- Tomahawk Beast: Launches Wing Boomerang, firing two Boomerangs that start
                  from the top and bottom and circles enemy's back area before
                  returning, dealing  50+(20xAttack) non-flinching Wood damage
                  to anything in the way.
- Ground Beast: Launches Drill Drive, with Rockman charging ahead with a
                DrillArm, in green-glow INVINCIBILITY, hitting each panel ahead 
                of him with two hits of 90+(20xAttack) Breaking damage.
- Dust Beast: Launches Dust Shooting, with Rockman flying into the air and
              raining 6 Scraps randonly into the enemy, dealing 80+(20xAttack)
              Breaking damage each and cracks Panels that got hit.

Greiga Version:
- Heat Beast: Launches Great Fire, spitting out fire on the panel directly
              ahead of Rockman and then a DreamSword range following it (so up
              to 7 panels) for 50+(30xAttack) Fire damage. FireGospel, anyone?
- Slash Beast: (No, not the one from MMX4) Launches Slash-X, executing a
               CrossSlash that does 50+(30xAttack) Sword damage (2x if the
               enemy is right in front of Rockman) to the locked-on enemy. If
               the enemy is not on Rockman's row, Rockman will only move enough 
               so the edge of the X would hit the enemy.
- Elec Beast: Launches Big Thunder, spitting out lightning in the same range as
              Great Fire, dealing 40+(30xAttack) Elec damage.
- Killer Beast: Launches Killer Tail Arrow, dropping a Killer Arrow on the
                locked enemy, dealing 70+(30xAttack) Cursor damage and causing
                Bugs to the enemy if it survived the arrow.
- Charge Beast: Launches Charge Bite, with a growl that stuns all enemies, then
                fires a Greiga face into the locked-on enemy, dealing
                70+(30xAttack) Fire Damage.
