Hello, and welcome to this fresh revision of my Megaman guide.  Actually, it is
not that fresh.  It's a port of the Wily Wars guide I did.  It is, however,
better than the original one.  And it's good too.  I don't say that about much
of my work, but it is good.  This is probably my second-favorite Megaman game.
It was the first one to be released.  This game was an attempt by creator
Keiji Inafune to bring his creation to life.  It went by Rockman in Japan and
was ported over to the states after a long fight.  This is when the series
began to take off.  The game itself was limited by a lack of memory, but still
surpasses some of the Megaman games.  Especially the later X and EXE games.

It's sad.  Anyway, this is the only Megaman game to feature a points system.
I think that's a shame.  This game also introduced a sense of non-linearity to
the video gaming industry, which has carried over into modern games.

For those new to the series, Megaman is a game where you go through six or
eight levels defeating robot masters.  These levels can be taken in any order
you wish.  Each level contains a boss.  The bosses give you weapons which can
be used on other bosses.  You have to jump in the loop somewhere.  After
defeating the robot masters, you go on to the Dr. Wily stages to defeat the mad
scientist once and for all!

Well, not really.  Mad scientists and other villains have this disturbing
habit of getting away.

This guide is dedicated to Rachael Brenner.  She's a really sweet person who
doesn't deserve the wrongs done to her in her life.  It's sad.  She never fails
to make me smile.  We all need people like this.  She rocks.

And to Kao Megura, may he rest in peace.

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=0

This is taken from the NES Megaman instruction booklet, so it's copyrighted to
Capcom 1988.

It's MEGAMAN versus the powerful leaders and fighting forces of 
Monsteropolis -- that strange multi-faceted land of robot-like Humanoids.
Brilliant scientist Dr. Wright conceived the construction of 
fully-operational human-like experimental robots to perform specific 
everyday duties. Dr. Wright, and his assistant Dr. Wily, encouraged with 
their very first near human robot -- MEGAMAN -- proceeded to develop 
six additional Humanoids, all programmed to perform prescribed rituals:

Cutman: Designed to function as a lumberjack.  Powerful saw-toothed
        Scissorlike instrument protrudes from head, capable of gnawing through
        giant forest timbers


Iceman: Impervious to chilling sub-zero temperatures, capable of human-like 
        performances under extreme climatic conditions


Gutsman: A bulldozing character capable of lifting and transporting huge 
         boulders


Bombman: A real "blaster" as a heavy duty laborer who uses intensely powerful 
         explosives to clear lands for Dr. Wright's construction projects


Fireman: Melts and molds metals with a flamethrowing torch flaring from atop 
         his head.


Elecman: Dr. Wright's electrifying creation - planned for conducting electrical 
         operations - even supervising nuclear power plants.

 
But, with the exception of MEGAMAN, all of Dr. Wright's near-human robot 
experimentation went awry.  Assistant Dr. Wily turned disloyal, 
re-programming Dr. Wright's Humanoids, now bent on destroying opposition 
so Dr. Wily could control the world and its resources.

Resisting re-programming, MEGAMAN is chosen the defender of the
universe and its inhabitants. MEGAMAN dares to single-handedly penetrate
seven separate empires of Monsteropolis, eliminating the leaders
and followers of these sovereignties.  Get ready for some very exciting 
challenges!

Alrighty then.

Megaman AKA Rock AKA Rockman
----------------------------

The star of our show.  Throughout his life, he's earned several nicknames
("Super Fighting Robot," "Blue Bomber," "Meddlesome Blue Robot," etc.) and
foiled Dr. Wily multiple times.  He likes to avoid fights when possible (story-
wise.  Depending on who is playing, however...) and find more peaceful 
solutions to problems.  With Megaman around, the adventures in this game are
gonna ROCK!

Get it?  'cause he's Rock and it's gonna...yeah.

Dr. Light
---------

Dr. Light created Megaman, his brother Protoman, his sister Roll, and along 
with Dr. Wily, created the six robot masters of the first game.  He is a
benevolent person with Megaman's best interests in mind.  He is always creating
new gadgets for Megaman to use in defeating Dr. Wily.

Dr. Wily
--------

It's impossible to have a good character list without Dr. Wily.  Even for, say,
Mario.  You still need Dr. Wily.  Dr. Wily was Dr. Light's assistant before
Megaman 1.  However, one day, he decided that he had enough.  He left the lab,
taking Megaman, Cutman, Gutsman, Fireman, Iceman, Elecman, and 
Bombman with him.  He reprogrammed them all.  Megaman alone was able to resist
the evil programming and escaped.  Now it's up to Megaman to defeat the
nefarious Dr. Wily.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

And now for the walkthrough!  This would be the main part of the guide.  Or
it would be without the maps.  You could say that this is the Gutsman (ha ha!)
of the guide.

Press start on the title screen to access the Stage Select screen.  Here you
see closeups of all of the robot masters of this game.  Remember to take your
time.  

Choose Bombman and let's get this party started! 

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=0
| 3.01: Bombman |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=0

Enemies: Screw, Popper, Screw Turret, Pea Shooter, Sniper Joe, Spike Bot,
         Bullet Bill, Flying Metool, Suzy, Bombman

Note: Does anyone know what those yellow balls in the background are supposed 
      to be?

Start by going right.  A red screw will jump at you.  Let it jump over you, 
turn around, and blast it with the Arm Cannon.  Continue on.  Jump on the
platform to have two more red screws jumping at you.  Repeat the previous
strategy to deal with them.  Jump onto the next step and from there to the top,
dealing with the red screws as they jump at you.  Drop off the next two steps
and continue going right.  When you reach the next step (there's a fence),
quickly jump onto the platform and hug the wall to your right.  A guy we'll
refer to as a Popper will Popper up (heh heh.  I'm here all night) and break in
to four pieces.  If you're hugging the wall, you'll be able to dodge these
pieces.  Jump onto the top ledge and jump over the gap.  Repeat this process
with the next Popper.  However, as soon as he is gone, be sure that you hurry
and jump to the next platform, as the Popper from the previous gap will be 
coming back up for more Poppin' goodness.  Repeat this strategy for the next
Popper.  When you jump down to the blue and green ledge that is closer to the
ground, go right and jump on the thin ledge.  That ends the Popper section.  
Jump onto the column and fall off to the right.  When the blue screw that is in
the ground comes up, it will fire off shots like so:

                         |
-------------
|, = - Screw |
.    - Shot  |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jump over its shot and then blast it three times to destroy it.  Continue to 
the right to find two more screws that should be dealt with in the same manner.
Jump over the blue and green = looking platform to find a weapon capsule in a
small niche.  Because you have no master weapons as of yet, you don't need 
this.  Jump on the first = platform.  From there, jump to the second and from
there to the longer platform to your left.  This has two energy pellets on
it.  Grab them and jump back onto the = platform to your right and from there 
to the long ledge to the right of that platform.  Go to the right and ascend
the ladder.

Climb all the way up the ladder without stopping.  On the adjacent wall to your
left are four Pea Shooters.  At the top, wait for the top two Pea Shooters to
open fire (visual gag).  Destroy them while they're firing.  Jump onto the 
ledge in front of you and from there to the top of the enclosure.  Descend the
ladder to your left.  As you go, destroy the remaining two Pea Shooters.  Grab
the energy capsule at the bottom and then ascend the ladder again.  Go left and
climb the far ladder to leave this area.

Start going right to meet the classic enemy, Sniper Joe.  Sniper Joe jumps and
shoots a lot and he has a shield.  The only two times you can hit him are when
he is firing at you (shoot, jump over his shot, shoot, jump, repeat) and when
he is jumping.  When he is destroyed, continue right.  You'll now encounter a
steady stream of foes who look like Bullet Bills from the Super Mario series of
games.  They only take one shot to destroy, but when they explode they really
explode.  If you go into the explosion, you'll take damage, so be sure to stop
briefly after you shoot them.  Sometimes it's best to just ignore them.  Once
you get to a column, jump onto it.  You see a hole.  Beyond the hole is a Pea
Shooter.  Jump over the whole hole and start shooting as you fall.  With any
luck, you'll hit the Pea Shooter on your way down.  If not, you'll have to jump
and try to hit it afterwards.  Once it is destroyed, jump onto the platform
that it was guarding and from there to the column.  Jump across the gap and try
to hit this Pea Shooter on your way down.  If not, you'll have to dispose of it
afterwards.  Jump onto the column and across yet another gap to encounter yet
another Pea Shooter and yet another repeated section.  Destroy it and hop onto
the column.  From here, jump down to the ledge to your right and then climb the
ladder.  Go right to enter a sort of building (that's what you assume from the
background anyway).  Drop onto the small ledge below you and then drop again
before the Spike Bot gets ya.  Note that the Spike Bots will speed up when 
they see you, so act fast!  Talk about a repeated situation.  This looks 
exactly like the end of the first screen but with different enemies.  Go right,
jump over the Spike Bot and onto the blue and green = platform.  Jump from 
there to the next = platform and from there to the long blue and green 
platform.  Go all the way right and then ascend the ladder.

[Halfway point] - From here on in, when you die you'll end up here.

Stop!  Don't go all the way up.  A Bullet Bill will hover past you.  Once he is
gone, climb up a little.  At this point, you have two options.  You can 
continue climbing or stop climbing.  Daredevils should stop climbing.  If you
take this route, go left across the platform and jump over the spike pit.  When
you reach the ladder, press up to grab on to it.  If you decided to continue
climbing up, climb to the top and start platform hopping to the left.  This
puts you at a better height from which to reach the ladder.  Regardless of 
which route you took, continue up to the next area.

Now we encounter a flying Metool.  He floats around and fires a shot in all
directions when he pauses.  Shoot him when he pauses.  Once he is destroyed,
jump onto the = platform.  Jump from there to the next one and from there to
a final platform.  From there, fall to the ground.  Not the spiked ground, mind
you.  Continue right, dealing with the flying Metools as you go.  At the end
of the path, you'll discover a ladder.  Climb it.  At the top, jump off the
platform and to your right.

Land in there to find a Sniper Joe.  Defeat him as you have defeated the other
Sniper Joes (they don't change) and grab the 1-up.  Leave this compartment
through the hole through which you entered it.  Drop to the ground and continue
right.  At the far end of this path, you'll find a platform with a Sniper Joe
atop it.  Defeat the Sniper Joe and then enter the boss gate.

Megaman 1 is the only Megaman game to feature an enemy-ridden boss gate.  Jump
across the gap and onto the ladder.  Once on the ladder, jump to make Megaman
let go.  He'll fall all the way down, missing all of the Suzies.  At the 
bottom, we meet...

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                                 BOSS: BOMBMAN

In case you didn't figure this out, Bombman's weapon is a bomb.  He'll run and
jump around the room chucking bombs at you.  He's very slow but never let him
get you in a corner.  As I said, he'll throw bombs at you.  Not only do you 
have to watch out for the bombs, but you also have to watch out for their
explosions.  Like the Bullet Bills of his stage, they leave an explosion behind
that is just as damaging.  Using your Arm Cannon, shoot at him a few times and
then run away from him.  If he looks like he is going to jump way over you,
turn around and run back.  Always run under him if you've got a chance.  Just
keep pelting him with your Arm Cannon and he'll go down.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Grab the orb to leave this stage with the Hyper Bomb in hand.

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=0
| 3.02: Gutsman |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=0

Enemies: Metool, Met Miner, Blader, Hopper, Gutsman

Now we start the classic stage.  The one everyone remembers...
                                                          ...because it is EVIL

With the enhanced backgrounds, we can finally figure out that this is a mining
stage.  Start off by going right to find a Metool on the "step" created by the
rock.  When you get close enough, he'll come out from behind his hard hat and
fire three shots at you at different trajectories.  Jump and blast him once to
destroy him here.  He cannot be damaged while under his hard hat, hence the
reason you have to wear them in construction areas.  Jump to the next step and
go right to find another Met.  Destroy it in the same manner, being sure to 
jump over his shot.  Go to the right side of this ledge to activate another
friend.  Destroy him like you destroyed the first Metool and jump onto the 
ledge that he was guarding.  Jump to the final ledge and go to the right side 
to discover the greatest evil known to the Megaman series...

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

When the green platform is close enough, jump onto it.  Wait for it to go out
to the other end of the belt.  When you see a platform below you, jump down on-
to it.  Now is when things get tricky.  You'll notice parts of the belt that 
are thinner than others.  When the part of your platform that is touching the
belt (the far left) reaches these thin parts, the platform will drop out from
under you.  You want to jump here.  Be sure to jump forwards so that, when the
platform gets back to the thicker part of the belt, you'll land on it.  Drop to
the lowest platform when you can.  Repeat the fun of the above belt on the
bottom one until you reach the end.  At the end, jump over to safe ground and
start singin'.

Go right and you'll meet these flying green things.  Jump and shoot the lowest
one but ignore the others.  Keep moving (this is important).  When you reach 
the rocks, you'll notice that they make a sort of stair.  Jump onto the first
rock and from the first rock to the second.  Walk along this ledge and jump 
from there to the third "step."  Jump again to the top.  Drop down the next two
steps to find an energy capsule.  Hop up the two steps to your right and then
fall off.  At this time, you will want to turn around and destroy any of those
green machines that are still following you.  Go right to meet a Met Miner.
Met Miners are tall, so they can't fit under the helmet; however, they do have
a shield.  When they throw their pickaxes (Hamma' Time!), like the Sniper Joes,
they put their shields away so you can attack them.  Once he is destroyed, jump
up the rock steps.  Go to your right to find another Met Miner.  To deal with
him, run towards him as you are firing.  When you get next to him, start 
running back.  Once he's destroyed, continue forwards.  On an adjacent 
platform, you'll see another Met Miner who should be dealt with in the same
manner.  Jump to the platform that he was previously guarding now and from 
there to a final platform to deal with a final Met Miner.  Go to the right side
and drop down.

[Halfway point]

When you land on this platform, drop off the right side and then hug the 
platform from which you dropped.  You'll land on a platform with an energy
capsule atop it.  Ignore the other capsule for now and drop off the left side
of the column while holding left so that you miss the bottom platform but are
still on the left side of the screen when you drop to the next screeen.

You'll land on a small niche atop a column.  Jump off to the left to land on a
ledge with a 1-up.  Grab it and drop down to your right.

Down here, you'll meet an enemy called a Hopper.  He does a lot of damage to
you if he hits you and can take a lot of punishment.  Your best bet is to wait
for him to take a big jump and run under him.  Drop off the steps, go all the
way right, jump up one step, and enter the gate.  In the gate, run forward
while firing.  You'll hit the Metools that you encounter on the way.  Enter the
gate at the far end to meet Gutsy!

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                                 BOSS: GUTSMAN

Gutsman occasionally walks around the room, but his favorite attack is to jump
which causes a boulder to come down.  Note that you should also jump when he
jumps because if you're on the ground when he lands, you'll be shocked and 
cannot move.  When he throws the boulders, they'll split in to four pieces, all
of which can damage you equally.  As with Bombman, never let him get you into
a corner.  Speaking of Bombman, use your Hyper Bomb here.  Throw a bomb so that

he'll get caught in the explosion.  Jump over a boulder and repeat.  While it
is hard to hit him with the bomb (if he is moving), it only takes three bombs
to permanently demolish him.

Or that's what I'd like to say.  He's one of the most recurring bosses in the
series with no less than three forms -- not including remade games.  If you're
wondering, those forms are in Megaman, Megaman 2, and Megaman 7.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Grab the orb to get outta here with the Super Arm! 

Remember rock, paper, scissors?  If Gutsman is rock and rock beats scissors,
let's go to the guy with the big scissors on his head!

This music rocks.

After teleporting in, go right and jump on the set of blocks.  Equip the Super
Arm (labelled G on your menu), pick up the block in front of you, and lob it at
the oncoming blue Blader.  Climb up the ladder where the block used to be
and jump to the platform to your right.  The Blader below you won't do
anything but you may want to jump over the next Blader whose altitude is a bit 
higher.  Jump over the Super Arm Block in front of you and carry on.  Jump over 
to the blue and white platform that looks like an = platform from Bombman's 
stage.  Jump from the first to the second and from there to the top step on the 
series of steps.  Jump on top of the Super Arm Block and use that as a stepping 
stone to jump across the pit.  Descend the stairs and go right.  There is a 
narrow gap that will allow you to take a shortcut and jump onto the ladder from 
here.  You will want to hurry as you probably have a nice little line of 
Bladers following you.  Climb up that ladder, jump over to the right, and climb 
up the final ladder to go to the next screen.

Go to the left edge of this platform, turn around, and start with a jumping/
shooting combination to destroy the turret above you.  The turret can only be
damaged when it opens up to fire.  It's just like the turrets from Bombman's
stage.  After it is destroyed, hop over the gap (if you fall down the gap, 
you'll be back at the previous screen.  Go right and climb up the ladder to 
return to this spot) and go to the ladder on the left side.  Two turrets await
you up here.  Destroy them in the same manner in which you destroyed their pal.
Hop over to where the turrets were, jump up the stairs, and finally climb up 
the ladder.

There's an easy way and a hard way to do this screen.  When you get to the top
of the ladder, start with the jumping and shooting to nail the turret on the
left side of the screen.  Climb up the closest ladder to you to avoid the 
second turret.  Jump onto the stair in front of you to find yourself in front
of another turret.  Start firing at it to destroy it when it finally opens up.
Jump onto the final stair and climb up the ladder.

Go left and jump over the pit (you'll find yourself on the previous screen if
you miss).  Climb up the ladder and go right.  Ignore the turrets and hop onto
the ledge above you.  Go left and climb the ladder.

Finally no turrets!  Go right and you'll see a building.  Someone in the 
building starts to chuck Rolling Cutters at you.  Ignore it and continue to the
right.  Those little screws from Bombman's stage will start to fly at you now.
Let them all jump over you.  When they start to jump to come back, blast them.
It's as simple as that.  Hop up these next few stairs and jump onto another 
Super Arm Block.  Jump from there over the pit and down the stairs that you 
come to.  Now you meet the Suzy enemy.  Suzy is an eye with suction cups 
attached to all four of its sides.  When Suzy is on the bottom level, shoot it.
Once this Suzy has been destroyed, you'll notice two more on the screen: one
moving up and down and one more moving side-to-side.  Stand on the far right 
side of the ground.  When the side-to-side Suzy is on the left side and the up
and down Suzy is down, jump and throw a Hyper Bomb at them.  If it stays on the
platform, it will destroy both of them in one hit.  Jump onto the platform, go
left, climb the ladder, go to the right, and finally climb up this last ladder.

[Halfway point] 

Now we start the fun part of this stage: a few screens filled with Suzies.  To
your left when you climb up is a Super Arm Block.  Wait for the lowest three
Suzies to be on the left side of the screen.  Jump and throw it at them to take
them all out.  Climb the ladder and wait for the last remaining Suzy to go to
the right side of the screen.  When this happens, start jumping and shooting at
it to destroy it.  Jump over to the platform in the middle of the screen and
from there to the far right platform to find a ladder.  Climb the ladder.

More Suzies.  Destroy the one closest to you when it is on the ground.  Go all
the way to the left and hug the left wall.  When the Suzy above you goes to the
right, jump through the gap to avoid it.  Go left to find another Super Arm 
Block.  Jump on top of it and start climbing the ladder when the lower of the
Suzies starts moving to the right side of the screen and don't stop.

More Suzies!  When the up/down Suzy is on the ground and the right/left Suzy
is on the right, throw a Hyper Bomb to get rid of them both.  Jump and climb
up the ladder to your right.  When the left/right Suzy up here is on the right
side of the screen, climb to the top of the laddee, jump up to the final 
ladder and climb it.

No more Suzies here!  Go right to dodge the Rolling Cutter building.  Jump up
the stairs and go righ to find a blue Blader foe.  Destroy it quickly.  Drop
off the stairs to meet two more Bladers.  Destroy them and drop off the ledge
to the right.  If you need it, go through the nook to your left to find an
energy capsule.  Grab it, go right, and descend the ladder.

Down here, we meet a Flying Met from Bombman's stage.  Go left and down the
ladder.  Drop off so that you land on the floor.  Go right and descend the
ladder.  On the next screen, drop off to the right.  You'll land on a platform.
Jump off to the left and descend the ladder on the far left-hand side of the
screen.

On the next (and final, except for the boss gate) screen, you've got a Hopper
enemy here.  Wait for him to get onto the top level of Super Arm Blocks and
hope he does a high jump.  When he does, run under him and don't stop running
until you reach the gate.

The gate is filled with the screw enemies from Bombman's stage that pop up and
fire in five directions.  When they pop up, blast them really quickly.  The
middle one is on the ceiling, so beware!  Once you've destroyed all three, 
enter the gate on the far side to meet...

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                                BOSS: CUTMAN

Cutman is fast and hops around the room a lot, throwing his Rolling Cutter
blades at you.  How do you cut him down to size?  You cut him down to size with
the two Super Arm Blocks that are in the room.  Ignore Cutman and concentrate
on picking the blocks up.  It takes two blocks to destroy him but there are
only two blocks in the room, so each block has to count!  When Cutman is in the
air, throw a block at him.  Jump over any Rolling Cutters and then hit him
again to finish him off.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Grab the orb and take off with the Rolling Cutter in hand!  Be sure not to run!

Because, you know.  You've got scissors.  Tough crowd, tough crowd.

Enemies: Spike Bot, Watcher, Hopper, Elecman

Time for the hair-raising stage!  In all seriousness, this stage has caused a
few eyebrows to be raised.  If you listen to the music, the first four notes
resemble the chord used in "Faithfully" by Journey and the whole thing is like
"All the Right Friends" by REM.  The question being: which came first?

You're at a power plant tower.  You've got three ledges above you with little
moving Spike Bots on each.  To deal with them, equip Rolling Cutter and hit 
them each.  You could also hit them with an Arm Cannon shot to stun them, but
Rolling Cutter offers a more permanent solution.  Hit the first two from the
ground.  Jump onto the first ledge, jump again, and fire a Rolling Cutter at
the Spike Bot above you to destroy it.  Jump from here to the first ledge on
the right side, from there to the second ledge on the left side, and from there
to the second ledge on the right side.  Ascend this ladder.

More Spike Bots.  Take the first one out from the ground and jump to its 
platform.  Fire a Rolling Cutter without jumping to destroy the second one.
Jump onto its platform and from there to the top.  Climb this ladder.  While
I'm thinking about it, when you see a weapon energy capsule/pellet, be sure 
that you collect it with the Rolling Cutter equipped so that you don't run out
before you reach Elecman himself.  Now you've got some Elec Beams to deal with.
Jump over to the left side so that you are in between the gap and the left side
of the platform with the first Elec Beam on it.  When the second Elec Beam goes
away, jump onto the first platform and from there left to the second platform.
Because of this, you avoid all Elec Beams here.  Jump to the top of this 
platform and climb the ladder.

Here you have what looks like a ladder that goes way up to your left and just
that.  Wait for a second and these green enemies called Watchers will come 
down.  When they are on the same level as you are, they'll open up and fire two
beams of electricity at you.  Jump and fire one shot at them to destroy them.
Three will come from the bottom of the screen and three will come from the top.
Once you've destroyed all six, quickly climb up the ladder before they
regenerate.

Climb up the ladder here (it's still the same ladder) until you reach a small
platform.  Drop off on to this and wait for the six watchers.  Destroy them 
like you destroyed the others.  Jump back onto the ladder and quickly climb up
to the top. 

Now it's time for the classic vanishing block game!

Jump up onto the small platform above you.  Continue jumping up and down until 
you land on a block that appears from out of nowhere.  To its left is another 
block.  Go jump on it.  A block will now appear to the right of the first 
block.  Following this, another block will appear above you and to your left.  
Equip Rolling Cutter and climb up the ladder to grab three weapon energy 
pellets.  Edge out to the right.  On the other side, you'll see four vanishing
blocks creating a bridge.  When the one closest to you appears, jump out on to
it and from there up and left to a ladder.  Climb the ladder, go left, and 
climb a final ladder.

[Halfway point]

At the top of this ladder, jump on to the ledge up here and walk to the right.
Jump down onto the small block.  If you're feeling daredevilish, jump to the
niche to your left to grab an energy capsule.  The hard part is getting back 
out again, so be sure that Megaman doesn't hit his head and fall down.  Jump
to the block to your right.  Jump from here to the next block and make your way
up the last three remaining blocks.  Jump from the top to the ladder and climb
up.

More Watchers here.  Take them out from the ground and then ascend the right
ladder.  Go right to find some more Elec Beams.  When the lower Elec Beam is
gone, jump as high as you can and then press up.  You'll be on top of the 
ladder.  Run left and climb halfway up this ladder.  Wait for the top Elec Beam
to go out, climb up the rest of the way, run right, and then climb up the 
ladder.

There's a Super Arm Block that you could take out if you wanted to switch 
sides, but believe me, we don't.  Wait here for a second to cause some Watchers
to appear (better to take them out now than on the ladder).  Destroy them and
climb up the ladder.  At the top, go all the way left and climb this ladder.
Go right and use the Super Arm to get rid of the three Super Arm Blocks in your
way.  Once they've been cleared away, you'll find the Magnet Beam!  The Magnet
Beam can create platforms and is necesary later in the game.  Jump on the small
blocks on the left side and from there to the ledge on the right.  Climb up the
right ladder.

More Elec Beams.  Wait for the first one to disappear and then climb beyond it
so that you are in between the bottom and top Elec Beams.  When the top Elec
Beam goes out, climb all the way to the top of the screen.

Go left and climb this ladder.  Go right, wait for the Elec Beam to disappear,
and climb that ladder.  Simple enough.  This part is interesting.  Start off
by hugging the left wall.  This will cause the top red screw, who is busy 
trying to stay parallel with you, to jump off the building!  Go right long 
enough to make the bottom red screw go to the right side of his area.  Run to
the ladder, jump to the top of it (press up at the top), and blast the red 
screw.  Now we have gotten ourselves into a jam.  Use the Super Arm to get the
block out of your way.  Megaman can't jump high enough to get out!  What do we
do?  Use our new-found Magnet Beam, that's what we do!  Equip it and fire it
at the right wall.  You might want to do a little jump first (but not too big).
Jump on the platform that is created and from there to the top ledge.  Jump to
the left to land on a ladder.  Climb the ladder.  We're almost there!

Jump on the ledge to your right to be at a familiar screen.  Go right along the
ledge and jump to the platform that is down and to your right.  Jump from there
to the platform to the right and from there to the next platform and so on 
until you reach the top.  Climb up this ladder.

We've got some Elec Beams here.  There is a small window of time where both the
first and second Elec Beams are out.  When this happens, jump onto the first
Elec Beam's platform and from there to the second.  Jump from here to the 
ladder.

At the top, you've got a Hopper.  Go right and wait for him to high jump.  Go
under him and enter the gate.

The gate is basically a climb up the rest of the tower.  There are two screens
of Elec Beam dodging.  The way this works is thus: there are three Elec Beams.
The middle one will activate and a second later the top and bottom ones will
activate.  Wait for the bottom one to deactivate and then climb so that you are
in between the bottom and the middle.  When the middle one goes out, climb so
that you're in between the top and the middle.  When the top one goes out, 
climb up the rest of the way.  Repeat this for the next screen to reach...

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                                 BOSS: ELECMAN

Elecman is really fast.  The Thunder Beam fires shots up, down, and in front of
Elecman.  There are two Super Arm Blocks in here but don't bother.  You've
gotta be fast.  You can only take three hits from his Thunder Beam but he can
only take three hits from your Rolling Cutter.  Start off by throwing a Rolling
Cutter at him and then taking off to the far left side of the room (on the
Super Arm Blocks).  Jump over any Thunder Beams and fire Rolling Cutter at him.
You'll probably take a hit or two.  Beat him first.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Grab the orb and take off with the Thunder Beam!

Enemies: Crazy Razy, Flyin' Penguin, Spike Bot, Hopper, Iceman

This stage begins the tradition of ice making your character slide in video
games.  A tradition that this water stage does NOT start, however, is the 
ability to jump higher.  In this stage, you can jump just as high in water as
you can in any other terrain.  Be careful!

When you teleport in, you'll find one of the most evil enemies in the game: a
Crazy Razy.  If you hit the lower part of his body, it will be destroyed but
the head will fly up and act like a Blader.  You want to aim for his head.
Destroy him and carry on.  At the far end of this stretch will be a set of
steps from which a Crazy Razy will come running at you.  Defeat him like you
did the other and jump up the stairs.  At the top, you'll find another Crazy
Razy.  Make him explode and continue right.  Yet another Crazy Razy will come
running towards you like an idiot.  Take a shot at his head to destroy him and
jump up this next step.  Yet another of our friends will start speeding towards
you.  Blast him and continue right.  Jump onto the final step to meet -- you
guessed it -- nothing.  Drop off this step to the right and from that step into
the water.  Anyway, jump over the obstruction here to come face-to-face with a 
Flyin' Penguin.  Blast it once and then jump over the next obstruction.  These 
Flyin' Penguins will continue to fly at you, hoping to kamikaze with you, so 
keep shooting.  Go right and jump onto the next obtrusion.  Jump over the space 
in between it and the next one so that you avoid the Spike Bot.  Drop off the 
water tank and continue right, avoiding the Flyin' Penguins as you go.  Jump 
onto the next water tank and from there jump to the next to avoid the Spike Bot 
below there.  At the far end is a Spike Bot on a step that you need to get onto 
in order to finish this section.  Pull out your Rolling Cutter and destroy it.  
Jump up the next two steps to exit the water section of this stage.  Go right 
and jump onto the next stair.  Go right to encounter a hole.  Drop down the 
hole, destroy the two Suzies to your left, go right, and drop down a shaft.


[Halfway point]

More vanishing block fun!  The first thing that you will want to do is destroy
the Spike Bot with a Rolling Cutter.

That was difficult.  There are two ways to do this.

Hard-working way: Jump on block number one.  When it appears, quickly jump to
                  block number three.  When it appears, quickly jump to block
                  number five.  When it appears, jump to block six, from there
                  to block seven, and from there to solid ground.

Easy, cheap way : Using the Magnet Beam found in Elecman's stage, simply create
                  a column of platforms to the top.  Create one, jump on it,
                  create another, and so on until you reach the top.

Either way, drop down the shaft.

You get a cold reception here (you know you love it) by a Spike Bot and MORE
vanishing platforms!  And they form two at a time!  You try diagramming those!

Phew.  As complex as this looks, it's really simple.  Again, you could just use
the Magnet Beam to make some platforms on the right side.  Start off by using
Rolling Cutter to take the Spike Bot out.  Run over to the right side and jump
onto platform number four.  Jump from there to platform five and from there to
platform six.  Jump from there to platform seven.  When it appears, quickly
jump to platform nine.  Start jumping when you think platform ten is going to
appear to land on it.  Jump from here to platform 11 and from there to the end
of it all.  Jump onto the ice pillar and go to the right.  Drop off to come to
yet another challenging section.

You have to jump from eyeball platform to eyeball platform.  To make things 
worse, they are moving and shooting too.  Jump from the ice ledge to the first
one.  Wait for it to be really high and to the right and for the second one to
be low and to the left.  Jump off to land on the second platform.  Wait for the
third platform to get close enough to the second (on my cart, this takes quite
awhile) and jump over to it.  Make the easy jump to the fourth platform and 
from there to an icy column that serves as a reprieve.  There's a weapon energy
capsule here.  At this point, Flyin' Penguins will start to fly at you so be
shooting forward at all times.  Jump to the platform.  When these two platforms 
are about to intersect, jump to the other platform.  Wait for the third 
platform to get close and then jump to it.  Wait for the third platform to be
very high up and to the right (so the fourth should be below it) and jump to 
the fourth eyeball platform thing.  When it climbs high enough, jump to the
solid ground to the right.  Go all the way to the right to the point where you
have to fall down a shaft.  Fall off but hug left to find a niche with an
extra life inside.  Grab it, go right (if Megaman stops moving, jump), and fall
down the shaft.  Be sure to hold left.

If you held left, you'll land on a platform with three energy pellets and three
weapon energy pellets.  Grab them (be sure to have, say, Rolling Cutter or
Magnet Beam equipped), go right, fall off, go left, and drop down the shaft to
get to the final part of Iceman's stage.

Of course we have a Hopper here.  Wait for him to high jump and run under him.
Go to the far side of the screen, jump onto the ledge, and finally enter the
gate.  In the gate, just run while shooting.  You are facing an onslaught of
Flyin' Penguins.  At the far end of the gate, enter the final set of shutters
to reach Iceman!

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                                BOSS: ICEMAN

Equip Thunder Beam and get to work!  Iceman will hover up and down while 
shooting Ice Slasher at you.  He's got a really simple pattern.  He'll go to
the top of his "hover range" and start going down.  While he is going down, he
will fire three Ice Slashers at you.  He'll pause briefly, fire another, and go
back up while firing two more Ice Slashers.  He'll now drop, run towards you a
little, and repeat the process.

Thunder Beam kills him in three shots.  At the start of the battle, jump a 
little and fire one.  When he comes down, fire another.  Run and jump over the 
lowest set of Ice Slashers and blast him in mid-air.  If you missed on any 
occasion, hit him while he's running towards you to destroy him before this 
battle even heats up.

Of course, having the battle heat up would be a good thing in that weather.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Grab the orb-thingy and take off with the Ice Slasher!  One more robot master
left!

Enemies: Screw Turret, Fire Tackle, Bullet Bill, Spike Bot

Hot, hot, hot!  This should go without saying, but if you fall into the lava,
you'll die.

When you teleport in, position yourself so that you are directly under two of
those five-directional-shooting blue screws.  Equip the Elec Beam and fire
away.  This should take them both out (it fire upwards).  Go right and climb
the ladder.  Go left, over where the first screw was, and climb the ladder
there.  Go right to find another screw.  Take him out.  Go right to find 
another "S" formation with your path.  Position yourself over the blue screw
robot right under you and fire the Elec Beam to destroy that robot as well as
the screw in front of you.  Go right and descend the ladder here.  Go left and
descend that ladder too.  Now to go right.  Out of the fire pit in front of you
will come three fireballs.  They'll fire (hah!) way up into the sky and slowly
come back down.  Each of these guys can be destroyed with one Arm Cannon shot
each.  While they're in the sky, jump over the fire pit to reach a fire 
barrier.  When the fire barrier is extended, fire an Ice Slasher shot at it to
freeze it.  Jump up onto it and from there to the left to get an energy 
capsule.  It doesn't stay frozen for long, so drop back down beside the fire
pillar, fire another Ice Slasher at it, jump up on it, and this time jump off
to the right to save yourself some trouble.  Go right and ascend the ladder
here.

More fire pillar fun.  Unless you're really hurting (you shouldn't be, what 
with the energy capsule on the previous screen), just ignore the energy pellers
and climb the first ladder.  Go right and climb the second.  Go left and jump
(it's probably best to wait for the fire to be out before you jump) and grab
onto the ladder.  Climb up to the next area.  If you did want those energy
pellets, grab the bottom one when the fire pillar is not there.  Return to 
where you were and wait for the fire barrier to be extended.  Blast it with Ice
Slasher and jump on it.  Wait for the second fire pillar to be gone and then
jump up to the energy peller.  Turn around, hit the fire pillar with Ice
Slasher and use it as a stepping stone to reach the ladder at the top.

Go right and blast the first fire pillar with Ice Slasher.  Use it as a boost
to reach the top of the enclosure.  Grab the two weapon energy capsules here
(remember to have Ice Slasher equipped as you grab them!) and then drop off the
right side of the platform.  You are now faced with some fire beams.  This will
certainly heat things up!  When the fire is extinguished, jump to the right as
far as you can to land on a small platform in between the two fire beams.  Wait


for the fire beams to disappear and then jump out and to your right.  Jump onto
the ledge above you and once again jump over to the right (when the fire beam
is gone!) to land on a small platform in between the two ledges.  Drop down to
the right and wait for the fire beam to extend and then go out again.  Jump
back onto the platform and from there to the ledge to the right.  Wait for
both of these fire pillars to disappear and then jump to the right, jump over 
the small gap, and then drop down to the right so that you land on the small
ladder.  Jump from there to the left to grab three energy pellets.  Jump back
over to the ladder and descend it.

The second you enter this screen, three fireballs will be shot up and the two
fire pillars in this room will extend.  Stand on the ladder and wait for the
fire pillars to go down.  Drop down to where the first fire pillar will come
up and go left into the gap.  Wait for the pillars to go up and back down 
again.  Jump back onto the ledge, over the gap, and finally climb down the
ladder.

[Halfway point]

When you drop off the ladder, hold right to land on the small platform with
a fire pillar on it.  Wait for the fire pillar to go up and back down.  At this
point, you should jump to the next platform.  While you're waiting for the
fire pillar to go up, some fireballs will start coming down.  Jump up and
shoot one or two.  By that time the fire pillar will have gone down.  Jump over
to the platform on the right where you should climb the ladder and continue
right.  Jump over to the small grey platform to the right and climb the ladder
there.  Run right and wait for the fire barrier below you to go back down.  
Drop to it and quickly jump to the right.  Wait for the fire pillar beside you
to descend and then jump to the long platform to the right.  Run right and
climb the ladder here.

This is evil.  Remember how on Cutman's stage you had that building that shot
scissor blades at you and that turned out to be Cutman's weapon?  Well now you
have a steady steam of Fire Storm coming down at you.  Go left and climb up the
ladder.  You COULD try to time this thing by waiting for one Fire Storm to pass
and then running through, but you wouldn't make it.  You'd then go up the
ladder, go left, get hit by another Fire Storm blast, and finally climb up the
ladder.  BUT THERE IS AN EASIER WAY TO DO IT!  Turn left, fire the Magnet Beam,
jump up to the ladder, and climb up.

The Bullet Bills are back!  Be sure that you are shooting them as you jump up
the stairs here.  Run right and equip the Elec Beam.  This is difficult to
pull off.  While standing over the Spike Bot below you in the "S" formation,
fire an Elec Beam.  With any luck, this destroys the Spike Bot below you and
the one in front of you.  If it didn't get the one in front of you, jump over
it and descend the ladder.  If you missed the one here, stand on the ladder and
fire Rolling Cutter until you hit it.  Now go left, descend the ladder, and go
right.  Fire an Elec Beam at the oncoming Spike Bot if it gives you any 
trouble.  At the far right side of this platform, equip Ice Slasher and climb
the ladder to get a weapon energy capsule.  Drop off the ladder, jump over the
next two platforms (watch out for fireballs!), and continue to the far right.
Jump onto the ledge, wait for both fire pillars to not be ignited, and enter
the gate.

Start off by jumping and firing a few shots at the screw turret on the ceiling.
Run right a little and repeat the process when you see the next screw turret.
There are four screw turrets in here.  When you've taken care of them all,
enter the final gate.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                                 BOSS: FIREMAN

I've been saving this joke up ever since Gutsman.  Ready?  As you can tell from
his name, Fireman has a flare for fire!

Fireman has a simple pattern.  He runs around the room.  If you fire at him and
hit him, he'll counter with Fire Storm.  Fire Storm is a shield-looking blast
that comes at you and leaves a small fire where you were so when dodging it,
be sure to jump over and forwards.  Equip Ice Slasher and beat him down.  Hit
him, jump over Fire Storm, and hit him again.  Since he won't attack unless you
attack first, you can get away from him before your next shot.  Another thing
that you have working for you is that he never jumps.  You always know to fire
Ice Slasher on the ground.  He'll go down nice and quick.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Take the final orb and take off with Fire Storm!  Now select Dr. Wily's logo to
wrap things up!  He'll call his saucer, do the Dr. Wily trademark eyebrow
wiggle thing, and take off.

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0
| 2.07: Dr. Wily Stage 1 |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0

Enemies: Hopper, Screw, Bullet Bill, Rock Monster

You teleport in right outside of the evil Dr. Wily's fortress.  It's time to
begin the final battle!  On a slight aside, I was bored during history years
ago and I tried to draw a map of what this would look like in Skull Castle map
form.  Suffice it to say that I figured out why there was no map here.

Go right to meet a Hopper.  Let him jump over you and then run to the right.
After going right for a ways, you'll meet another Hopper.  Let him jump over
you and run to the small pyramid-like stair.  Jump on top of it and then off of
it.  As soon as you do, another Hopper will appear to greet you.  Let him jump
over you again and then run right to the next set of pyramid blocks.  Jump
over them and then continue to the right to find the entrance to the fortress
proper.  There's one very small, insignificant problem here, though.  I don't
know...oh yeah.  THE ENTRANCE IS BLOCKED.  Of course, you can deal with this
easily.  Just whip out the Super Arm.  Now if Dr. Wily had done this in future
games where you did _not_ have the Super Arm, he'd take over the world, now
wouldn't he?  But I digress.  With the Super Arm equipped, hug the blocks so
that they flash (they flash because you can pick them up with the Super Arm).
Jump until the second block from the bottom begins flashing.  Use the Super
Arm to pick it up and force Megaman into the niche where the block used to be.
Throw the block away and repeat the process for the next two blocks in front
of you.  Unequip the Super Arm and equip the Ice Slasher.  Hug the block in
front of you and wait for the first fire pillar (from Fireman's stage) to come
up.  Perform a small hop and fire the Ice Slasher to freeze it.  Quickly jump
onto the block and from there onto the frozen fire pillar.  Jump from here to
the next block.  When this fire pillar is down, jump up (being sure to avoid
hitting your head on the ceiling) to the next block.  Wait for the final fire
pillar to go up, blast it with Ice Slasher, jump on it, and climb the ladder.
Be sure to unequip Ice Slasher!

Climb the ladder to the top and edge out over the block.  When you are as far
out as you feel comfortable, press left just a little and jump.  If you did it
right, you've just grabbed an energy capsule.  If not, you've landed on the
block below.  Jump to the right, climb the ladder back up, and repeat.  
Obviously if you're good with health, then there's no need to get this at all.
Regardless of what you do, drop down to the first block being sure to hold left
during the fall.  Those spikes are nasty.  Jump over to the large block and
from there to the ladder.  Climb up!  Note: it would be to your advantage to
equip the Thunder Beam before coming up here.

The second you get up here, you are assaulted by red screws.  Your best bet is
to use the Thunder Beam to take them out as they're coming down the ladder.
Go right and jump up onto the ledge.  If you are in need of health, take the
upper route here.  Destroy the red screw that assaults you on your way.  This
is really tricky to pull off.  I'm sure there's a better way.  Go to the wall
and use the Magnet Beam to extend a platform.  When you think it will disappear
(this'll take practice), jump off and hug the blocks at the top-left corner of
the enclosure.  If you did this right, the Magnet Beam will now disappear.
Pause the game and take out your Super Arm to grab this thing.  Fall back to 
the ground, throw the block, use the Magnet Beam again, and take care of the
other block.  Throw it at the red screws in here, grab the energy capsule,
and drop back down to the middle part of this area.  Go left until you can
drop down again.  Look to the right to find three Super Arm Blocks.  Do your
thing with those until they're all cleared away.  Go to the right and descend
the ladder.

[Halfway point]

The Bullet Bills are back!  For the first section of this screen, it is best
to just ignore them.  Run left and drop down onto the platform to the left of
the spikes.  Carefully jump from platform to platform.  By about the second
platform, the Bullet Bills will become slightly more than a nuisance (they
can knock you down into the spikes) so destroy them quickly.  At the far end,
drop down, run left to outrun the Bullet Bills, and finally descend the ladder
here.

Oh boy.  More of those floating, shooting platforms from Iceman's stage!  Hop
on the first one when it hovers over the small block where you dropped.  It is
important that you do not use the Magnet Beam as a bridge here.  When the first
platform is higher than the second, jump to the second.  At one point, the
second platform will be diagonall sloping while the third is moving left.  At
this time, you'll want to jump to the third.  The third and fourth ones, at
one point, create a sort of "V" formation.  At the lowest point here, jump to
the fourth.  Whem the fourth platform is slightly near to the solid ground,
equip the Magnet Beam and jump off.  Two weapon energy pellets await you here
and you will need for the Magnet Beam to be at full power on this next screen.
After you've collected both powerups, jump on the ladder and ascend it.

I hate to toot my own horn, but that is pretty.

Anyway, just follow the diagram.  Put a Magnet Beam in those spots, BEING SURE
THAT YOU:

1.) Do not jump too high.  You've gotta be able to reach it and

2.) Don't put it so far into the wall/pillar that you cannot step on it.

If it takes you too many Magnet Beams, go back down the ladder and power up
again.

[This area serves as a halfway point]

In the next area, jump onto the ledge and go right to hear the now-classic
music and fight a now-classic boss...

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                              BOSS: ROCK MONSTER
                                      AKA
                                 YELLOW DEVIL

"And I go to pieces and I wanna cry."  This describes the upcoming battle.  Go 
to pieces.  Get it?  YOU WILL!

Yeah, back in the day, we called him the Rock Monster.  

Start off by running to the right side of the screen as he does his version of
teleporting in from the left side.

The Rock Monster has five levels to him: top of his head, bottom of his head,
torso/hands, legs, and feet.  Why is this important?  The Rock Monster has two
attacks, one of which is disassembling itself, shooting its pieces across the
room, and reassembling it.  After he does this, he'll briefly open his eye and
fire one shot at you.  He'll close his eye again and repeat the process.

To avoid getting hit by his pieces, follow this simple guideline: if it is
the second-lowest level of body parts (leg) or below (foot), jump.  If it is
not, do not jump.  It's as simple as that.  If he fires them so that the foot 
is followed by the leg which is followed by the torso, then jump over the first
two in one jump and then stop.  Each part will fly four times and the middle
will fly five times (his hand sticks out).  The shot is very easy to avoid.

So how do you tackle this behemoth?  When he opens his eye to shoot at you,
blast him once with the Thunder Beam.  You can't hit him again so don't try.
Once you've hit him, get ready for the next barrage of blocks.  Repeat this
process until he dies.

Note: The Thunder Beam is so slow that you may want to jump and fire at where
      his eye will appear once the last part of his body, his near hand, gets
      reattached.

When he moves, he moves thusly:

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0
| 2.08: Dr. Wily Stage 2 |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0

Enemies: Blader, Screw Turret, Cutman, Elecman, Popper, Suzy, Megaman Clone

Note: From here on in, switching levels will not refill your weapon energy.
      As such, conserve your energy and get the weapon energy capsules at all
      times!  For each level, I'll list the weapons that you should prioritize
      when getting the weapon energy capsules/pellets in the order in which
      you should refil them.

Note: Dr. Wily stages 2 and 4 involve robot master refights.  With the 
      exceptions of Cutman (no Super Arm Blocks) and Bombman (you now have his
      weakness), I'll just copy the boss strategies from before for you.  It's
      too time wasting for you to have to go back up there.

1.) Rolling Cutter
2.) Thunder Beam
3.) Magnet Beam
4.) Fire Storm
5.) Ice Slasher
6.) Hyper Bomb
7.) Super Arm

Now we're up in the sky!  Go right to meet a green Blader.  Shoot it and then
jump over to the next platform.  Upon landing on this platform, fire an Arm
Cannon shot at the Blader.  There's one under you too, so jump over it.  When
it swoops up at you, fire at it.  Jump to the right to the next platform.  You
will be assaulted by three more Bladers who should be dealt with as the 
previous ones were.  Drop down onto the small platform below and grab the 
energy pellet.  Jump up and to the right and go to the far end of this 
platform.  At the far end, fire at an oncoming Blader and then jump over to the
next platform.  Stand on the left side of the platform and fire a single shot
at the oncoming Blader who is level with you.  Wait for the Blader below you
to swoop up at you.  This is your cue to run right, drop onto the small 
platform below you, and pop the sucker once.  Jump into the enclosure to the
right.  Once you have passed the first "block," pull out your Magnet Beam and
use it to make a bridge over to the weapon energy pellets.  Use the first to
refil the Magnet Beam and the second to the Rolling Cutter or the highest 
weapon on the above list that has lost energy.  Once you've done this, walk
left.  The blocks turn out to be fake, taking you to...

In the finest Megaman tradition, you have to fight the robot masters all over
again.  In Megaman, Megaman X, and Megaman Legends 2 (the first of each 
subseries to have rematches), you face them in a predetermined order.  You
fight Cutman and Elecman here and Bombman, Gutsman, Iceman, and Fireman in
the fourth Dr. Wily stage.

He's still the same ol' Cutman.  The only difference is that there are no
Super Arm Blocks in here.  WHAT DO YOU DO?

As I said before, he likes to move.  He runs and jumps around the room chucking
his Rolling Cutter at you.  It should be noted that the Rolling Cutter blades
come back like a boomerang.  Now that we're all on the same page...

Since using the Super Arm, Cutman's primary weakness, is out, we need to come
up with a different weapon.  Ice Slasher goes right through him.  Thunder Beam
isn't effective (Cutman's weapon is Elecman's weakness).  He moves too much
to make Hyper Bomb an effective weapon and using a robot master's weapon
against him is never good (the sole exception is Metalman in Megaman 2 where it
defeats him in one hit).  The only weapon left is Fire Storm, which actually
does a fair amount of damage.  Wait for him to fire off a Rolling Cutter.
Jump over it and pop him with Fire Storm.  Remember that even if you miss with
the initial shot, Fire Storm creates a fire shield for a split second with 
which you can still hit him.    Repeat this process to defeat Cutman for good.

I mean it this time.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Go left and drop through the floor.

Equip Hyper Bomb and jump over to the next platform.  While you're in the air,
throw the Hyper Bomb.  It should land near the red screw on the subsequent
platform (or even on the current one, which would destroy it).  Go to the far
right and drop down to grab an energy pellet.  Jump up and to the right.  From
this platform, jump over to the next and toss another Hyper Bomb in midair.
Go right and equip the Magnet Beam.  Drop off the ledge and use the Magnet Beam
to make a bridge over to the two weapon energy pellets (from the looks of this
region, you can probably guess what's coming).  Use the first pellet for Magnet
Beam and the second for Rolling Cutter.  If Rolling Cutter is full, use it on
Thunder Beam.  Equip Rolling Cutter and walk left to fall down the false floor
and meet another friend...

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                             BOSS: ELECMAN REMATCH

Elecman is really fast.  The Thunder Beam fires shots up, down, and in front of
Elecman.  There are two Super Arm Blocks in here but don't bother.  You've
gotta be fast.  You can only take three hits from his Thunder Beam but he can
only take three hits from your Rolling Cutter.  Start off by throwing a Rolling
Cutter at him and then taking off to the far left side of the room (on the
Super Arm Blocks).  Jump over any Thunder Beams and fire Rolling Cutter at him.
You'll probably take a hit or two.  Beat him first.

New notes: You probably can't afford too many hits.  It wouldn't behoove you to
           die here, as you'd be taken all the way back to the beginning of the
           level (meaning you'd have to fight Cutman again).  Also, the Super
           Arm Blocks are gone, so you're on a level playing field.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Once you make it past this, go to the left side of the room and fall through
the fake floor.

We're up again the Poppers again.  Remember them from Bombman's stage?  If not,
they come up from the bottomless pits and pop into four pieces.  Upon falling
down, go to the left side of the screen and equip Thunder Beam (or Magnet Beam
or Fire Storm, depending on which is the lowest).  When the first Popper comes
up, explodes, and dies, run to the right, jump over the pit, and keep running
until you fall down to the small platform below the second long platform.  
There is a weapon energy pellet here.  The other benefit of being down here is
that you're safe from the Poppers.  When they Popper (I haven't had a good pun
since Fireman's stage.  Give me a break.  Even if I did use it in the first
level) back up and explode, jump over to the next platform.  Go about halfway
over and then stop.  Wait for the next Popper to come up and go away.  Run
right and jump over to the next platform.  Keep running (equip your most
important weapon with the least amount of energy en route) and drop down to the
small platform to pick up yet another weapon energy pellet.  Wait for the
Popper to come back up (you're safe) and then jump over to the long ledge.
Keep running until you reach a ladder.  Climb down this ladder.

[Halfway point]

Suzies!  There is a good way to do this.  Upon dropping down to the first
platform, fall off the platform to the left so that an up/down Suzy is right
in front of you.  Equip the Thunder Beam.  When the two Suzies on the bottom of
the screen are above and below one another, fire the Thunder Beam.  You'll hit
all three.  Collect what powerups they give you and then return to this spot.
Jump up and fire a Magnet Beam bridge at the edge of the platform.  It should
be reasonably high.  Jump onto it and from there to the small block in the
top-left corner of the screen (right next to your energy/weapon energy bars)
to grab a 1-up.  As with Bombman's stage, there's an easy way and a hard way
to do this next part.  Only do the hard part if you're good with the Magnet
Beam and have a good bit of energy left in it.

Hard way: With the Magnet Beam still equipped, drop off the small block to the
          right.  Push just a little to the left.  This is critical: ONCE YOU 
          HAVE DROPPED AND PUSHED, DO _NOT_ MOVE ANYMORE TO THE LEFT OR TO THE 
          RIGHT.  You will land on the next screen in between a set of spikes.  
          This is difficult to pull off -- and even harder to describe!  Once
          you are down here, it's time to prove your mastery of the Magnet
          Beam.  Start by jumping up.  At the peak of your jump, fire the
          Magnet Beam but hold the fire button.  This will extend a bridge of
          sorts.  When you are slightly above the spikes, let go of the fire
          button.  Jump onto the bridge and walk to the end.  Shoot and hold
          the Magnet Beam again to make a three platform long bridge.  Jump
          onto it and walk across.  At the far end, just walk off and keep
          holding right to land back on the main path.

Easy way: From the small platform, jump to the right.  You'll land back on the
          ledge.  Go right and drop off.  Go left and fall down.  Go right and
          descend the ladder here.  Jump left to the small ledge in between
          the spikes and the gap.

Now that we're all on the same page, pull out the Thunder Beam.  Jump back to
the previous ledge so that you're facing the wall.  You should barely be on the
ledge.  There is a brief point of time where all three Suzies are in the same
place.  Fire the Thunder Beam at this point.  Drop down to the left and then
again to the right.  Collect whatever powerups that the Suzies dropped, go 
left, and descend this ladder, equipping the Fire Storm before anything.

This part is fun.  Most people would have you just take the hit, but I find
this way more fun and that's what video games are all about, right?  This
screen looks something like this:

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

That work is of less quality than my previous one (with which I'm still 
enamored), but the point is still made.  I think the reason that it is poor
is because:

1.) If you're not there, you don't realize that you're in a tower so that
    everything that has nothing is sky in the game and

2.) When I originally did it, the slanted roof (/) tiles had no spaces.  That
    made it too steep.  With a space, it doesn't look as good but the point is
    still made.

When you fall into the room, the Suzies on the right side will close in on you.
I spent a lot of time figuring this out and this is the best I've come up with
for this room.  When you fall in, hold right.  When you are level with the
middle Suzy (the left side.  You might even do it a little before you're
level), fire the Fire Storm.  Here is what should happen: the right Suzies
will run into the temporary fireball forcefield created by Fire Storm.  The
actual shot will hit the middle Suzy, effectively destroying them all.  Climb
down the ladder now.

You are now faced with some Pea Shooters.  Like every many other rooms around
here, you want to equip the Thunder Beam.  Take a second to think about this.
The Pea Shooters fire four shots in four different trajectories.  They cannot
shoot up or down.  _You can._  Stand under them facing the wall (to the 
right).  There is a brief period where all four Pea Shooters are open.  Fire
the Thunder Beam now to destroy all four.  All of their powerups will fall on
you!  With the Thunder Beam still equipped (unless Ice Slasher is low.  If Ice
Slasher is low, equip it), run to the left and ascend the ladder.  At the top,
jump to the left to land on a small platform with a weapon energy capsule
upon it.  With this in hand, jump to the right, equip Thunder Beam if you
switched to Ice Slasher, and descend this ladder.

This is hard to pull off.  Go left.  When the two Suzies below you move left,
wait until they're right below you and then fire off a Thunder Beam to take
care of all three at once.  If you missed, drop down the hole and face left.
When the Pea Shooter opens, fire a Thunder Beam to try to hit all three.  It
helps to hop a little.  Use your Arm Cannon to destroy the rest.  Drop off to
the right, run left, and finally drop down the ladder with Ice Slasher
equipped.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                              BOSS: MEGAMAN CLONE

Like Megaman 3 after it, this game features a Megaman Clone fight.  He has the
same master weapons as you.  This is important: he can only use the master
weapon that you have equipped.  The difference between you two is that his
weapons hurt more.

When I was figuring out which weapon to use, I took several things into 
consideration (namely, heads or tails).  I considered:

1.) How hard the attack was to avoid
2.) How much damage it did to you
3.) How easy it was to hit him
4.) How much damage it did to him

My original Megaman guide told readers to use the Thunder Beam.  The clone can
use the master weapons as powerfully as the robot master did.  Know what that
means?  He can kill you in three hits with the hard-to-avoid Thunder Beam.  I
finally decided upon Ice Slasher.

His style of fighting is a lot like that of Bombman, Elecman, and Cutman.
He'll run around a lot, jump, and fire his weapon.  The best way to do this is
to back into one of the corners.  Since he's a clone, he reacts to attacks the
same way Megaman does: he falls back.  Obviously, if he gets too close, you
should move.  I've found that his Ice Slasher actually does less damage to you
than yours does to him.  It's very easy to avoid (if it's low, jump) and as I
said, it's not too painful.  If you keep up a barrage of Ice Slashers, he'll
die very soon.

Since he cannot use master weapons you don't have equipped, he can't use the
evil ones (I speak of Thunder Beam).  Obviously, you don't want to use Super
Arm.  There are no blocks.  He can ram you for damage but you have no way of
hurting him.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0
| 2.09: Dr. Wily Stage 3 |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0

Enemies: Suzy, Screw Turret, Flyin' Penguin, Bullet Bill, Protobubbleman

Stage three serves as an interim between the tough trek of getting here and the
epic battles ahead.  

Weapons:

1.) Super Arm
2.) Magnet Beam
3.) Thunder Beam


The rest don't matter due to an item we get in the next stage and the shortness
of this one.

(note the music change)

We want to conserve our energy so use your Arm Cannon as we go.  The sole
exception to this is the Super Arm.  As you might expect, you teleport in
next to some Suzies.  As you might not expect, however, you seem to be in
Wily's sewers.  HE IS A MAD, MAD SCIENTIST TO HAVE THESE THINGS DOWN HERE!
Anyway, walk left so that you don't get hit by the Suzy closest to you.  Turn
around and blast the two Suzies here when they are at the bottom of their
path.  Instead of worrying about the other Suzy, wait until it is on the right
side of the pipe and then drop down.

As soon as you drop down, face right and start firing at a Suzy who will be
coming towards you at any second.  There's a Screw Turret up above you but
don't bother with it.  Go left and wait for the Suzies to stop moving.  Drop
down the hole between them.

Once you land, jump over the oncoming Suzies.  Ignore the Screw Turret in the
ceiling (the only reasonable way to destroy it is by the Thunder Beam and we
really want to conserve that).  Go right and jump over the Suzy (or don't if
it is on the right side) and drop down to the next room.  Hug the right side!

In this instance, you want to use the Thunder Beam.  Use it to destroy the 
Screw Turret below you.  After that, make a run for the other side of the room.
Maybe use Thunder Beam to take out the other Screw Turret.  Throw a Hyper Bomb
so that it lands on the far edge of this ledge when the Suzies are close by.
When it detonates, the bomb should take out at least one Suzy.  Use the gap
created to drop down the pipe and to get ready for the next challenge.

This part is hard to write a walkthrough for.  So far, there have been three
types of oncoming enemies: Flyin' Penguins, and Bullet Bills.  When you start 
moving right, the pipe will flood with water (Wily flushed).  You'll face an 
onslaught of Flyin' Penguins.  Your best bet is to shoot three shots and run
along a short distance behind them (the water makes you run faster since it is
flowing.  If you hit a Flyin' Penguin, release another shot.  Once you've
gotten about halfway through, the Flyin' Penguins will change to Bullet Bills.
The same strategy should be used, but you should stay farther behind the shots.
At the end, you reach a large area with a small opening in the bottom-right 
corner. 

[Halfway point]

Enter the opening (not like you have a choice with the water flowing this fast) 
to face the boss.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                             BOSS: PROTOBUBBLEMAN

This name came to me two seconds ago.  The original was something along the
lines of "Bubbleman's First Form," but this sounded catchier because I like
Protoman.

Protobubbleman will come out of one of the holes and start going around the
room clockwise.  He'll also shoot large bubbles that look like Crystal Snail's 
weapon from Megaman X2.  That's it.

Anyway, there are four Super Arm Blocks here.  This should indicate that is
weakness is probably Super Arm.  It will take more than these four, however.
Start off with your Arm Cannon.  You do NOT want to use Thunder Beam, however,
as it it destroys the blocks here.  Contrary to what I said earlier, the water
has no effect on your jump here.  Must be the sewage.

Start off with the Arm Cannon.  When his first bubble comes out from the left
hole, get onto the top Super Arm Block and begin shooting it.  It will be
destroyed shortly.  Another bubble will come out.  Destroy it with your Arm 
Cannon (you may have to jump over it).  Repeat this process for the third 
bubble that comes out.  You'll notice that the bubbles move faster as we go 
along.  Now it's time for the heavy artillery.  Pull out the Super Arm and grab 
the top block.  Throw it at the bubble that comes out.  As soon as you've 
thrown the block, drop down and grab another one.  Repeat this process for the
remaining blocks.  If a bubble comes from the top, wait for it to get near to
the right or left holes (your choice) and then throw the block.  If the next
bubble comes out of the hole that you just threw the block at, that bubble will
be destroyed before it can do anything!  If you run out of Super Arm Blocks,
defeat the last remaining bubbles with your Arm Cannon to finish off
Protobubbleman!

Alternate strategy: I came across this one while getting the damage.  When the
                    bubble is halfway down the right side or going across the
                    bottom, throw a Hyper Bomb to the right/left wall 
                    (respectively) to get rid of the bubble in two hits.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Told you it was short.  Now it's time for the final hurrah.

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0
| 2.10: Dr. Wily Stage 4 |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0

Enemies: Watcher, Screw Turret, Bombman, Fireman, Iceman, Gutsman, Dr. Wily

1.) Thunder Beam
2.) Rolling Cutter
3.) Fire Storm
4.) Ice Slasher
5.) Hyper Bomb
6.) Super Arm
7.) Magnet Beam

You know how the "ready" sign appears across the screen when you start?  I hope
you're ready.  Stand still and wait for six of the Watcher robots from 
Elecman's stage to come flying down.  Destroy them.  Jump to the right onto the
first small block.  Jump from there to the left to the next block and left yet
again to the final small block.  Jump left to the ladder and ascend it.

More Watchers are here.  Climb as high as you can.  When the Watchers come from
the sky, use the directional pad as though you were turning towards it and
fire to destroy it.  Repeat this process for the other two.  Ignore the three
from the bottom.  Continue climbing.

At the top, you see the last set of Super Arm Blocks in the game.  Atop the
Super Arm Blocks is a weapon energy capsule.  This will not help you, so use 
the Super Arm to pick up the lowest block and walk on.  You now have a set of
small gaps in between slightly upraised platforms.  Atop the ceiling that lies
above every two gaps is a Screw Turret.  Throw the Super Arm Block at the first
one.  Jump across the gaps until you reach the final one.  Equip the Thunder
Beam and fire to destroy it.  Notice those Gutsman statuettes up there.  Evil
premonition or just a bad interior decorator?  You're about to find out.
With the Thunder Beam still equipped, continue right until you reach another
Screw Turret.  Fire the Thunder Beam again to destroy it.  Repeat the process
for the next Screw Turret as well.  Continue right to find another set of 
teeth-like gaps.  Jump over to the second and fire a Thunder Beam to destroy
both sets of turrets here.  Continue jumping over the gaps to find one final
Screw Turret on the ceiling.  Destroy it, hop over to the ledge, and continue
right.  Not to be left out, we have an "S" formation of ledges a la Fireman's
stage.  Climb up the first ladder, run left, climb up the second, and run 
right.  Drop down onto the small block to find...

OH NO!

Those platforms from Gutsman's stage are back!  It's just one this time.  When
it gets near to you, hop onto it.  When the far right ("hinge") is about to
touch the thin part of the conveyor belt, jump to the small block above you.
Wait for the platform to be raised and then jump down to it.  Ride it to the
right, past the extra life, and grab the Yashichi.  This refills all of your
special weapons (hence the reason you didn't need the weapon energy capsule 
from earlier) and your life.  When the platform comes back, jump onto it and
ride it to the extra life.  Hop off and grab that.  Since everything is 
refilled and we won't be needing it anymore, use the Magnet Beam to make a
series of platforms (I used one) from this block to the ladder.  Jump onto the
ladder, climb it, and run to the far right to enter a teleporter.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                             BOSS: BOMBMAN REMATCH

Now you've got the Fire Storm.  Equip it and let's get to work!  Bombman is
no different from before.  He still runs and jumps around the room while throw-
ing bombs are random times.  Never let him corner you.  Unlike the last time
around, we've got more than our Arm Cannon.  Time to put a light on his fuse
that he'll never forget!

One thing that people often forget when using Fire Storm is that you have
fireballs encircling you for a second after you shoot it.  You have to use this
to your advantage.  If Bombman jumps into a corner, don't sit there firing at
him like an idiot!  Fire towards the far wall while running ot it.  The
fireballs will hit him.  Your basic formula here is jump over a bomb, turn
around, and fire a shot at Bombman.  If he ever gets near you, again, use the
Fire Storm's fireball shield and run away.  This fight is much easier with the
aid of Fire Storm.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Go back to the teleporter.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                             BOSS: FIREMAN REMATCH

Fireman has a simple pattern.  He runs around the room.  If you fire at him and
hit him, he'll counter with Fire Storm.  Fire Storm is a shield-looking blast
that comes at you and leaves a small fire where you were so when dodging it,
be sure to jump over and forwards.  Equip Ice Slasher and beat him down.  Hit
him, jump over Fire Storm, and hit him again.  Since he won't attack unless you
attack first, you can get away from him before your next shot.  Another thing
that you have working for you is that he never jumps.  You always know to fire 
Ice Slasher on the ground.  He'll go down nice and quick.

NOTE: I played this game four times between enemies, walkthrough, and the maps.
      In that time, I discovered something about Fireman.  He imitates your
      movements.  If you run towards the boss gate, so does he.  If you run
      forward and make him run into a wall, he'll charge across the room, stop
      on the other side, and continue imitating you.  Make sure that you keep
      him controlled.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Run back to the teleporter.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                             BOSS: ICEMAN REMATCH

Equip Thunder Beam and get to work!  Iceman will hover up and down while 
shooting Ice Slasher at you.  He's got a really simple pattern.  He'll go to
the top of his "hover range" and start going down.  While he is going down, he
will fire three Ice Slashers at you.  He'll pause briefly, fire another, and go
back up while firing two more Ice Slashers.  He'll now drop, run towards you a
little, and repeat the process.

Thunder Beam kills him in three shots.  At the start of the battle, jump a 
little and fire one.  When he comes down, fire another.  Run and jump over the 
lowest set of Ice Slashers and blast him in mid-air.  If you missed on any 
occasion, hit him while he's running towards you to destroy him before this 
battle even heats up.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Head back to the teleporter.  If you've ever heard "Exhuming McCarthy" by REM,
you'd be thinking of a quote from the song: "Have you no sense of decency, sir?
At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"  This is especially true if
you're low on energy, as these guys don't give you any.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                             BOSS: GUTSMAN REMATCH

Gutsman occasionally walks around the room, but his favorite attack is to jump
which causes a boulder to come down.  Note that you should also jump when he
jumps because if you're on the ground when he lands, you'll be shocked and 
cannot move.  When he throws the boulders, they'll split in to four pieces, all
of which can damage you equally.  As with Bombman, never let him get you into
a corner.  Speaking of Bombman, use your Hyper Bomb here.  Throw a bomb so that
he'll get caught in the explosion.  Jump over a boulder and repeat.  While it
is hard to hit him with the bomb (if he is moving), it only takes three bombs
to permanently demolish him.

Note: I _really_ hate this rematch.

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->

[Halfway point]

At the top, go right.  Equip Fire Storm and grab the weapon energy capsule.
If you're low on health, enter the boss gate and die.  You'll come back to this
point with full health.  Again, equip Fire Storm, grab the weapon energy 
capsule, and enter the final boss gate...

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                                BOSS: DR. WILY

"Closing time, James.  Last call."

His red spaceship will float in and attach onto a new ship.  Your target on
this ship is the cannon that is attached to an arm.  IT'S THE THING SHOOTING
AT YOU.  Notice that as the battle progresses, he moves back and forth.  You
want to do the same thing.  Keep moving so that the cannon doesn't hit you.
When you can, jump up and pop him once with Fire Storm.  Keep moving and 
hitting him until the cannon and the cockpit cover break off.

Now it's time for form two.  From here on in, all of the games will have
multiple forms of Dr. Wily.  There is no best weapon here.  I recommend 
sticking with Fire Storm since you can hit from afar.  When you run out of
Fire Storm, use Thunder Beam.  This is weird.  He'll fire these plasma shots
that circle around.  With each circle, they'll get closer to you.  Jump over
them when they're near you and they're low to the ground.  At this point, you
want to fire at the jewel where the cannon was last time.  This gets 
complicated when Wily is close to you.  Continue jumping over his shots like 
you normally would.  If you're really having trouble, ignore the shots and 
concentrate on getting all the Fire Storm shots in.  Once Dr. Wily goes down
for the final time, you've beaten the game!

For each boss, I used every weapon (except the non-damaging Magnet Beam) on the 
boss and saw how many hits it took to destroy him.  If a Super Arm Block could 
ever be used against the boss, I'd use it.  Even if I had to bring it from the 
start*.  That's how much I love you guys.  Of course, that is just one block.  
I had to make some calculations.  If you have any corrections (there will be 
some), please email me with them.  My numbers might be off (I'm from Florida).

This is where I list the boss strategies from the walkthrough for the people
who just skipped over it.  I'll use the exact boss strategy unless the rematch
with the boss is different from the first time around.  If this is the case...

<----------------------------------------------------------------------------->
                                    Bombman
                             Weakness: Fire Storm
                           Master Weapon: Hyper Bomb

First time (Arm Cannon) : In case you didn't figure this out, Bombman's weapon 
                          is a bomb.  He'll run and jump around the room while
                          chucking bombs at you.  He's very slow but never let 
                          him get you in a corner.  As I said, he'll throw 
                          bombs at you.  Not only do you have to watch out for 
                          the bombs, but you also have to watch out for their
                          explosions.  Like the Bullet Bills of his stage, they 
                          leave an explosion behind that is just as damaging as 
                          the actual bomb.  Using your Arm Cannon, shoot at him 
                          a few times and then run away from him.  If he looks 
                          like he is going to jump way over you, turn around 
                          and run back.  Always run under him if you've got a 
                          chance.  Just keep pelting him with your Arm Cannon 
                          and he'll go down.

Second time (Fire Storm): Now you've got the Fire Storm.  Equip it and let's 
                          get to work!  Bombman is no different from before.  
                          He still runs and jumps around the room while throw-
                          ing bombs are random times.  Never let him corner 
                          you.  Unlike the last time around, we've got more 
                          than our Arm Cannon.  Time to put a light on his fuse
                          that he'll never forget!

                          One thing that people often forget when using Fire 
                          Storm is that you have fireballs encircling you for a 
                          second after you shoot it.  You have to use this
                          to your advantage.  If Bombman jumps into a corner, 
                          don't sit there firing at him like an idiot!  Fire 
                          towards the far wall while running ot it.  The
                          fireballs will hit him.  Your basic formula here is 
                          jump over a bomb, turn around, and fire a shot at 
                          Bombman.  If he ever gets near you, again, use the
                          Fire Storm's fireball shield and run away.  This 
                          fight is much easier with the aid of Fire Storm.

                                    Gutsman
                             Weakness: Hyper Bomb
                           Master Weapon: Super Arm

Gutsman occasionally walks around the room, but his favorite attack is to jump
which causes a boulder to come down.  Note that you should also jump when he
jumps because if you're on the ground when he lands, you'll be shocked and 
cannot move.  When he throws the boulders, they'll split in to four pieces, all
of which can damage you equally.  As with Bombman, never let him get you into
a corner.  Speaking of Bombman, use your Hyper Bomb here.  Throw a bomb so that
he'll get caught in the explosion.  Jump over a boulder and repeat.  While it
is hard to hit him with the bomb (if he is moving), it only takes three bombs
to permanently demolish him.

Or that's what I'd like to say.  He's one of the most recurring bosses in the
series with no less than three forms -- not including remade games.  If you're
wondering, those forms are in Megaman, Megaman 2, and Megaman 7.

                                    Cutman
                              Weakness: Super Arm
                         Master Weapon: Rolling Cutter

First time (Super Arm)  : Cutman is fast and hops around the room a lot, 
                          throwing his Rolling Cutter blades at you.  How do 
                          you cut him down to size?  You cut him down to size 
                          with the two Super Arm Blocks that are in the room.  
                          Ignore Cutman and concentrate on picking the blocks 
                          up.  It takes two blocks to destroy him but there are 
                          only two blocks in the room, so each block has to 
                          count!  The Wily Wars version of him is a great deal 
                          slower than the NES one was.  When Cutman is in the 
                          air, throw a block at him.  Jump over any Rolling 
                          Cutters and then hit him again to finish him off.

Second time (Fire Storm): He's still the same ol' Cutman.  The only difference 
                          is that there are no Super Arm Blocks in here.  WHAT 
                          DO YOU DO?

                          As I said before, he likes to move.  He runs and 
                          jumps around the room chucking his Rolling Cutter at 
                          you.  It should be noted that the Rolling Cutter 
                          blades come back like a boomerang.  Now that we're 
                          all on the same page...

                          Since using the Super Arm, Cutman's primary weakness, 
                          is out, we need to come up with a different weapon.  
                          Ice Slasher goes right through him.  Thunder Beam
                          isn't effective (Cutman's weapon is Elecman's 
                          weakness).  He moves too much to make Hyper Bomb an 
                          effective weapon and using a robot master's weapon
                          against him is never good (the sole exception is 
                          Metalman in Megaman 2 where it defeats him in one 
                          hit).  The only weapon left is Fire Storm, which 
                          actually does a fair amount of damage.  Wait for him 
                          to fire off a Rolling Cutter.  Jump over it and pop 
                          him with Fire Storm.  Remember that even if you miss 
                          with the initial shot, Fire Storm creates a fire 
                          shield for a split second with which you can still 
                          hit him.  Repeat this process to defeat Cutman for 
                          good.

                          I mean it this time.

Damage:

 -----------------------
|     Weapon     | Hits |

| Rolling Cutter |   28 |
| Thunder Beam   |   28 |
| Ice Slasher    |   -- |
| Fire Storm     |   10 |
 -----------------------

Do you have any idea how incredibly tough getting the Hyper Bomb data was for
that?  Cutman moves WAY too much for a sane person to try that weapon.

                                    Elecman
                           Weakness: Rolling Cutter
                          Master Weapon: Thunder Beam

Elecman is really fast.  The Thunder Beam fires shots up, down, and in front of
Elecman.  There are two Super Arm Blocks in here but don't bother.  You've
gotta be fast.  You can only take three hits from his Thunder Beam but he can
only take three hits from your Rolling Cutter.  Start off by throwing a Rolling
Cutter at him and then taking off to the far left side of the room (on the
Super Arm Blocks).  Jump over any Thunder Beams and fire Rolling Cutter at him.
You'll probably take a hit or two.  Beat him first.

Rematch notes: You probably can't afford too many hits.  It wouldn't behoove 
               you to die here, as you'd be taken all the way back to the 
               beginning of the level (meaning you'd have to fight Cutman
               again).  Also, the Super Arm Blocks are gone, so you're on a 
               level playing field.

                          Master Weapon: Ice Slasher

Equip Thunder Beam and get to work!  Iceman will hover up and down while 
shooting Ice Slasher at you.  He's got a really simple pattern.  He'll go to
the top of his "hover range" and start going down.  While he is going down, he
will fire three Ice Slashers at you.  He'll pause briefly, fire another, and go
back up while firing two more Ice Slashers.  He'll now drop, run towards you a
little, and repeat the process.

Thunder Beam kills him in three shots.  At the start of the battle, jump a 
little and fire one.  When he comes down, fire another.  Run and jump over the 
lowest set of Ice Slashers and blast him in mid-air.  If you missed on any 
occasion, hit him while he's running towards you to destroy him before this 
battle even heats up.

                           Master Weapon: Fire Storm

Fireman has a simple pattern.  He runs around the room.  If you fire at him and
hit him, he'll counter with Fire Storm.  Fire Storm is a shield-looking blast
that comes at you and leaves a small fire where you were so when dodging it,
be sure to jump over and forwards.  Equip Ice Slasher and beat him down.  Hit
him, jump over Fire Storm, and hit him again.  Since he won't attack unless you
attack first, you can get away from him before your next shot.  Another thing
that you have working for you is that he never jumps.  You always know to fire 
Ice Slasher on the ground.  If he charges at you, he'll keep going, so jump 
over him.  He'll go down nice and quick. 

NOTE: I played this game four times between enemies, walkthrough, and the maps.
      In that time, I discovered something about Fireman.  He imitates your
      movements.  If you run towards the boss gate, so does he.  If you run
      forward and make him run into a wall, he'll charge across the room, stop
      on the other side, and continue imitating you.  Make sure that you keep
      him controlled.

                              Master Weapon: None

"And I go to pieces and I wanna cry."  This describes the upcoming battle.  Go 
to pieces!  Get it?  YOU WILL!

Yeah, back in the day, we called him the Rock Monster.  

Start off by running to the right side of the screen as he does his version of
teleporting in from the left side.

The Rock Monster has five levels to him: top of his head, bottom of his head,
torso/hands, legs, and feet.  Why is this important?  The Rock Monster has two
attacks, one of which is disassembling itself, shooting its pieces across the
room, and reassembling it.  After he does this, he'll briefly open his eye and
fire one shot at you.  He'll close his eye again and repeat the process.

To avoid getting hit by his pieces, follow this simple guideline: if it is
the second-lowest level of body parts (leg) or below (foot), jump.  If it is
not, do not jump.  It's as simple as that.  If he fires them so that the foot 
is followed by the leg which is followed by the torso, then jump over the first
two in one jump and then stop.  Each part will fly four times and the middle
will fly five times (his hand sticks out).  The shot is very easy to avoid.

So how do you tackle this behemoth?  When he opens his eye to shoot at you,
blast him once with the Thunder Beam.  You can't hit him again so don't try.
Once you've hit him, get ready for the next barrage of blocks.  Repeat this
process until he dies.

Note: The Thunder Beam is so slow that you may want to jump and fire at where
      his eye will appear once the last part of his body, his near hand, gets
      reattached.

When he moves, he moves thusly:

                             Weakness: Thunder Beam
                              Master Weapon: None

Like Megaman 3 after it, this game features a Megaman Clone fight.  He has the
same master weapons as you.  This is important: he can only use the master
weapon that you have equipped.  The difference between you two is that his
weapons hurt more.

When I was figuring out which weapon to use, I took several things into 
consideration (namely, heads or tails).  I considered:

1.) How hard the attack was to avoid
2.) How much damage it did to you
3.) How easy it was to hit him
4.) How much damage it did to him

The Wily Wars version of this game lets you attack the Megaman Clone with the
Ice Slasher.  It doesn't phase him here.  All in all, I recommend that you
use a non-Super Arm/Ice Slasher weapon that you're comfortable with.  Hyper
Bomb is tough to hit him with.  Rolling Cutter can be difficult to avoid.
You might even try Fire Storm.

His style of fighting is a lot like that of Bombman, Elecman, and Cutman.
He'll run around a lot, jump, and fire his weapon.  The best way to do this is
to back into one of the corners.  Since he's a clone, he reacts to attacks the
same way Megaman does: he falls back.  Obviously, if he gets too close, you
should move. 

Since he cannot use master weapons you don't have equipped, he can't use the
evil ones.  Obviously, you don't want to use Super Arm.  There are no blocks.
He can ram you for damage but you have no way of hurting him.

                                Protobubbleman
                              Weakness: Super Arm
                              Master Weapon: None

This name came to me two seconds ago.  The original was something along the
lines of "Bubbleman's First Form," but this sounded catchier because I like
Protoman.

Protobubbleman will come out of one of the holes and start going around the
room clockwise.  He'll also shoot large bubbles that look like Crystal Snail's 
weapon from Megaman X2.  That's it.

Anyway, there are four Super Arm Blocks here.  This should indicate that is
weakness is probably Super Arm.  It will take more than these four, however.
Start off with your Arm Cannon.  You do NOT want to use Thunder Beam, however,
as it it destroys the blocks here.  Like I said earlier, the water has no
effect on your jump here.  Must be the sewage.

Start off with the Arm Cannon.  When his first bubble comes out from the left
hole, get onto the top Super Arm Block and begin shooting it.  It will be
destroyed shortly.  Another bubble will come out.  Destroy it with your Arm 
Cannon (you may have to jump over it).  Repeat this process for the third 
bubble that comes out.  You'll notice that the bubbles move faster as we go 
along.  Now it's time for the heavy artilary.  Pull out the Super Arm and grab 
the top block.  Throw it at the bubble that comes out.  As soon as you've
thrown the block, drop down and grab another one.  Repeat this process for the
remaining blocks.  If a bubble comes from the top, wait for it to get near to
the right or left holes (your choice) and then throw the block.  If the next
bubble comes out of the hole that you just threw the block at, that bubble will
be destroyed before it can do anything!  If you run out of Super Arm Blocks,
defeat the last remaining bubbles with your Arm Cannon to finish off
Protobubbleman!

Alternate strategy: I came across this one while getting the damage.  When the
                    bubble is halfway down the right side or going across the
                    bottom, throw a Hyper Bomb to the right/left wall 
                    (respectively) to get rid of the bubble in two hits.

Damage:

 -----------------------
|     Weapon     | Hits |
|----------------|------|
| Arm Cannon     |    8 |
| Hyper Bomb     |    3 |
| Super Arm      |    1 |
| Rolling Cutter |    8 |
| Thunder Beam   |    4 | - Do NOT use this
| Ice Slasher    |   -- |
| Fire Storm     |    8 |
 -----------------------

Note: Your average robot master has 28 bars of life.  I figured it would be
      easier in this match to make the numbers the amount of hits it takes to
      destroy one bubble (four bars).  Keep this in mind.

                                   Dr. Wily
                             Weakness: Fire Storm
                              Master Weapon: None

"Closing time, James.  Last call."

His red spaceship will float in and attach onto a new ship.  Your target on
this ship is the cannon that is attached to an arm.  IT'S THE THING SHOOTING
AT YOU.  Notice that as the battle progresses, he moves back and forth.  You
want to do the same thing.  Keep moving so that the cannon doesn't hit you.
When you can, jump up and pop him once with Fire Storm.  Keep moving and 
hitting him until the cannon and the cockpit cover break off.

Damage: 

 -----------------------
|     Weapon     | Hits |
|----------------|------|
| Arm Cannon     |   28 |
| Hyper Bomb     |   28 |
| Super Arm      |   -- |
| Rolling Cutter |   28 |
| Thunder Beam   |   28 | - It hits twice, though
| Ice Slasher    |   28 |
| Fire Storm     |    7 |
 -----------------------

Now it's time for form two.  From here on in, all of the games will have
multiple forms of Dr. Wily.  There is no best weapon here.  I recommend 
sticking with Fire Storm since you can hit from afar.  When you run out of
Fire Storm, use Thunder Beam.  This is weird.  He'll fire these plasma shots
that circle around.  With each circle, they'll get closer to you.  Jump over
them when they're near you and they're low to the ground.  At this point, you
want to fire at the jewel where the cannon was last time.  This gets 
complicated when Wily is close to you.  Continue jumping over his shots like 
you normally would.  If you're really having trouble, ignore the shots and 
concentrate on getting all the Fire Storm shots in.  Once Dr. Wily goes down
for the final time, you've beaten the game!

| 2  - Two hits to kill     |
| And so on                 |
| -- - Cannot be hit        |
*---------------------------*

To clarify, Wily form one is when you are fighting Wily's machine but you
cannot see him (cockpit is closed).  Form two is when the cockpit is opened
and you can see that the doctor is in.

Also remember that the stats for Protobubbleman are the amount of hits required
to destroy an individual bubble; not the whole thing.  To get that stat,
multiply the number given by seven.

In the cases where a "--" is in the Hyper Bomb column, that means that Hyper
Bomb cannot reach the foe.  If a "--" is in the Super Arm column, there were
no Super Arm Blocks (either in the boss room or elsewhere within the stage).

Note: I'm told that some robot masters have more/less resillience to some 
      weapons.  As such, this chart is only for the Genesis version of Megaman.
      The NES version is in that guide (when it's updated).

Here's the basic format:

Weapon       : Weapon Name (weapon abbreviation)
Received From: Robot Master defeated/stage found

Color Scheme : Megaman's colors when he has the weapon equipped.
Uses         : How many times you can use the weapon before its energy expires.
Description  : What it's like.

This is followed by an ASCII diagram indicating what the weapon looks like in
use.

Weapon       : Arm Cannon (P)
Received From: Start with it.
Color Scheme : Blue and light blue
Uses         : Infinite
Description  : You shoot three small pellets.  They can damage each enemy by
               at least one bar of life.  By three small pellets, I mean that
               three can be on the screen at a time; you only fire one pellet
               per shot.

Weapon       : Hyper Bomb (B)
Received From: Bombman
Color Scheme : Green and white
Uses         : 14
Description  : You toss a cartoon-style bomb in an arc.  If the bomb hits 
               anything in the air or before it explodes, no damage will occur.
               When the bomb explodes, however, (1-2 seconds after it lands),
               it will explode leaving an explosion radius that is pretty big
               (a little wider and higher than Megaman).  This weapon could be 
               the best weapon in the hands of a skilled player.  Remember to
               use the arc to your advantage (i.e. platforms)

Weapon       : Super Arm (G)
Received From: Gutsman
Color Scheme : Tan and white
Uses         : 28
Description  : You can use this to pick up certain blocks.  You can determine
               which blocks you can pick up by touching them with the Super
               Arm equipped (they'll flash).  Once you've picked the block up
               by "firing," you can walk around with it and throw it at an
               enemy.  When the block hits a wall, floor, or enemy it'll break
               into four smaller pieces that cause just as much damage.  If
               Super Arm Blocks were more abundant, this weapon would be much
               more useful.  Note: you cannot ascend/descend ladders with a
               block in your hands.  This weapon is very strong and can destroy
               almost any regular enemy with one hit.

Weapon       : Rolling Cutter (C)
Received From: Cutman
Color Scheme : Grey and white
Uses         : 28
Description  : You toss a scissor-like blade that flies out a little ways and
               then returns to you like a boomerang.  While it's not the
               strongest master weapon, its rate of fire is considerably high.
               In the Genesis version, the blade can only hit one time between
               its going out and coming back; the NES version allows for as 
               many hits as it can get.

Weapon       : Thunder Beam (E)
Received From: Elecman
Color Scheme : Grey and yellow
Uses         : 28
Description  : You fire electricity forwards, up, and down.  This is my 
               personal favorite weapon.  It's very powerful and can hit 
               enemies in all different directions.  Because of its waviness
               (electricity has got to be wavy, right?), it can hit enemies
               that hug the ground!

Weapon       : Ice Slasher (I)
Received From: Iceman
Color Scheme : Dark grey and yellow
Uses         : 28
Description  : You fire a blade of ice.  It moves pretty fast but you can only
               have one on the screen at a time.  If it isn't going to affect
               a foe, it's going to go right through them.

Weapon       : Fire Storm (F)
Received From: Fireman
Color Scheme : Red-orange and yellow
Uses         : 28
Description  : You fire a fireball.  Additionally, Megaman is temporarily
               encircled by fireballs that are just as damaging as the one
               that Megaman shot!  This is an underrated but invaluable asset
               for this weapon.  The shield does not last long, nor does it
               block weapons, but it is more effective than the actual 
               fireball.

Weapon       : Magnet Beam (M)
Received From: Elecman (found; see section 3.03)
Color Scheme : Blue and light blue
Uses         : 14
Description  : A small platform is extended.  You can jump on this platform.
               Additionally, if you hold down the fire button, the bridge will
               extend.  It can go very far.  The farther it goes, however, the
               more it "blinks," and you tend to lose track of where/when the
               platform ends.

| 4.03: Items |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=0

With the exception of the Magnet Beam, these items can either be found in the
stage or are dropped by enemies after they're destroyed.
  
Energy Pellet         - A small yellow pellet that restores about three or four 
                        bars of Megaman's life.
Energy Capsule        - A large yellow capsule that restores a little less than 
                        one-third of Megaman's life.
Extra Life            - This looks like Megaman's head.  This will give you an
                        extra life, meaning that you can die an extra time
                        before getting a game over and having to start the
                        stage over from the stage select screen.
Magnet Beam           - See above.  It allows you to create platforms.  This is 
                        the only item for which a location will be listed.  
                        This is taken from the walkthrough for Elecman's stage
                        after the halfway point.

                        At the top of this ladder, jump on to the ledge up here
                        and walk to the right.  Jump down onto the small block.
                        If you're feeling daredevilish, jump to the niche to 
                        your left to grab an energy capsule.  The hard part is 
                        getting back out again, so be sure that Megaman doesn't 
                        hit his head and fall down.  Jump to the block to your 
                        right.  Jump from here to the next block and make your 
                        way up the last three remaining blocks.  Jump from the 
                        top to the ladder and climb up.

                        More Watchers here.  Take them out from the ground and 
                        then ascend the right ladder.  Go right to find some 
                        more Elec Beams.  When the lower Elec Beam is gone, 
                        jump as high as you can and then press up.  You'll be 
                        on top of the ladder.  Run left and climb halfway up 
                        this ladder.  Wait for the top Elec Beam to go out, 
                        climb up the rest of the way, run right, and then climb 
                        up the ladder.

                        There's a Super Arm Block that you could take out if 
                        you wanted to switch sides, but believe me, we don't.  
                        Wait here for a second to cause some Watchers to appear 
                        (better to take them out now than on the ladder).  
                        Destroy them and climb up the ladder.  At the top, go 
                        all the way left and climb this ladder.  Go right and 
                        use the Super Arm to get rid of the three Super Arm 
                        Blocks in your way.  Once they've been cleared away, 
                        you'll find the Magnet Beam!
Point Pellet          - A small blue/orange pellet that gives you no visible 
                        points.  At the end of the stage, all of the pellets 
                        you have are added up.  That total is multiplied by 
                        1000 and those are the points that you get from the 
                        point pellets.  So if you get four throughout the 
                        course of the stage, once you defeat the boss, you get
                        4000 points plus the clear points for that stage plus 
                        whatever other points you picked up.
Weapon Energy Pellet  - A small pellet that is the color of your current master
                        weapon.  It restores about three or four bars of your
                        master weapon's energy.  If you have no master weapon
                        equipped, no energy will be gained.
Weapon Energy Capsule - A large capsule that is the color of your current 
                        master weapon.  It restores a little less than one-
                        third of your master weapon's energy.  If you have no
                        master weapon equipped, no energy will be gained.
Yashichi              - Found only in Dr. Wily Stage Four following the lifts 
                        from Gutsman's stage, this item refills your health, 
                        master weapons, and gives you 100,000 points.  Nice!

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=0
| 2.04: Secrets |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=0

The Magnet Beam isn't one.  It's required.  Maybe the Yashichi (see above).

In the NES version (ONLY), pressing select repeatedly while firing the Thunder
Beam or Rolling Cutter causes a glitch wherein the enemy takes multiple hits
from the weapon.  It works.  It's kinda cheap, though.

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0
| 2.05: Enemies/Damage |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0

Here I list the enemies, where you can find them, the best weapon to use to
defeat them, points, and the amount of damage that each weapon does.  Note that
if "--" is the damage, that means that the weapon does not hurt the foe.  If "-
*" is there, that means that the enemy is frozen/stunned by the attack (they
still cannot be touched without taking damage).  As with the last time, the
"hits" column lists the amount of hits that it takes the given weapon to
destroy the enemy.

NOTE: The enemy being frozen can be a good thing.  Freeze them (especially if
      they have shields like Met Miners and Sniper Joes), switch to the Arm
      Cannon, and fire away!

NOTE: The weaknesses can also be the best weapon to use against the enemy
      regardless of damage.

NOTE: This does not cover obstacles such as the Rolling Cutter building 
      (Cutman) and the Elec Beams (Elecman) nor does it cover bosses.

Also, if the location is followed by a set of parentheses with a color inside,
that means that the enemy has several colors and the color in parentheses
corresponds to the color of the enemy on the given stage.

The enemies are listed in alphabetical order.  These might not be the official
names.

      values preceed those of the body.

Location     : Iceman
Description  : A green robot.  If you destroy his body, the head will act like

               head.

               Following this, it will close and go on its way.

               Dr. Wily Stage One (red-orange)
Description  : A large robot with one eye.  He jumps around trying to land on
               you.  He can do a normal jump or a high jump.  It's best to just
               run under him when he is in a high jump (Ice Slasher!) but if
               you really want to... (these guys can hurt a lot)
How to Defeat: Blast him with everything you've got.  He is often outside of
               boss gates so you get cornered often.  If this happens, run 
               under him.

               shots that slope up, straight, and down.

               fire.  Blast him now.

Enemy        : Met Miner
Location     : Gutsman
Description  : A large Metool with a shield and a pickax.  He attacks like a
               combination of a Sniper Joe and a Hammer Bro. (Super Mario).
How to Defeat: When he begins to throw picks at you, run towards him while
               firing.  When you get near to him, run back, turning around to
               fire occasionally.  Repeat this.  Be careful; his picks deflect
               your attacks.

Enemy        : Pea Shooter

               raining four smaller pieces down upon you.  Standing in the 
               right place will allow you to avoid all of the pieces.

How to Defeat: Hop over the shots and hit the turret while it is up to fire.
               If it's on the ceiling, jump up and hit it before the turret
               can even come down to fire.

Enemy        : Watcher
Location     : Elecman, Wily Stage Four
Description  : Green pod that extends the eyeballs on either side when it 
               becomes level with you.  It then fires electricity.  These
               guys come in packs of six: three from the left side that are
               descending from the top; three from the right side that are
               ascending from the bottom.
How to Defeat: I recommend staying on the ground.  If you want to, climb the
               ladder (Watchers are always near ladders) and hold the 
               directional pad in the direction that the Watchers are coming
               from.  Either way, shoot them before they have a chance to shoot
               you.

1Q: Can I beat the first Dr. Wily stage without the Magnet Beam?
1A: No.  Die enough to get a game over and then revisit Elecman's stage.

--

2Q: Why are there only six robot masters in this game?
2A: I've always thought it was because Wily didn't account for Megaman and
    Protoman resisting.

--

3Q: Oh boy!  Damage charts and maps for all eight Megaman games!
3A: That's not a question.

Now for a note about the maps.  I put them in to further help you navigate your
way through this game.  I map the terrain and the enemies.  Here's a universal
key (not including the enemies; those are in the stage keys):

*--------------------------------------------------------------------*
| -      - Ground or other impenetrable barrier                      |
| |      - Wall                                                      |
| ~      - Water                                                     |
| <-/->  - Normally followed by FP/BB.  This indicates the direction |
|          of oncoming enemies like the Bullet Bill                  |
| EP     - Energy pellet                                             |
| EC     - Energy capsule                                            |
| WEP    - Weapon energy pellet                                      |
| WEC    - Weapon energy capsule                                     |
| 1up    - Extra life                                                |
| S      - Spikes                                                    |
| =      - Stacked - Boss gate                                       |
| TO X   - Where X can be any letter.  Go to the map of that letter  |
| FROM X - This is where the map continues from the last one         |
| Start  - Beginning of the stage                                    |
| Boss   - A boss                                                    |
| Goal   - End of the stage                                          |
| |-|    - Ladder                                                    |
*--------------------------------------------------------------------*

Exceptions/additions are indicated in the level map and apply for that level
only.

Also, the maps aren't meant to be a guide.  They're approximate and made to
give you an idea of the level.

This is my first shot at full-level ASCII maps in case you couldn't tell.

Map: (oh boy.  21 screens)

 Key:

*------------------------*
| SB - Spike Bot         |
| WT - Watcher           |
| HP - Hopper            |
| RS - Screw             |
| ~  - Elec Beam         |
| EB - Elec Beam Shooter |
| SA - Super Arm Block   |
| MB - Magnet Beam       |
*------------------------*

About the Watchers: There are always six and they always start off-screen.  As
                    such, I'm just going to write them as if they were halfway
                    through their movement.

About the Elec Beams: I draw them fully extended.  The shooters are within 
                      blocks that are occasionally within walls.  Also, if the
                      beam fires and appears to interrupt the ladder, the beam
                      just goes across the ladder.

Assume that holes are filled with lava.

Note on Fire Beams: Fire Beam Shooters are blocks (you can step on them) in a
                    wall.

Note on Fire Pillars: I list them like they're extended.

Note on Fire Beams: I list them like they're extended.

Note on Fire Tackles: I list them as being in the lava.  They shoot up.  They
always come in triplets but only one is noted on the maps.

About the Watchers: There are always six and they always start off-screen.  As
                    such, I'm just going to write them as if they were halfway
                    through their movement.

About the teleporters: With the exception of the first one, you can only enter
                       them after the boss is defeated.

Once you've destroyed the machine, Wily falls out and begs for mercy.  While
you're getting your 200,000 clear points, he disappears.  The game cuts to a
mountain backdrop with the opening song from Megaman 2 playing.  The text,
now legendary, goes thusly:

"Megaman has ended the evil domination of Dr. Wily and restored the world to
peace.  However, the never ending battle continues until all destructive forces
are defeated.  Fight, Megaman!  For everlasting peace!"

Megaman starts running left towards the city.  The day goes by as the credits
roll under you.  When it's nighttime in the city, Megaman turns back into
Rock.  When he reaches the lab, Dr. Light and Roll are waiting for him.  Rock
jumps higher than he does when he has to (during the game when robots are
firing at him), and you get the "Thank you for playing!" message.

0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=0

With every fiber of my being, I believe this to be the first points guide for
this game.  Megaman lost its point system in the second game.  It's very
underrated.  I always enjoyed it.  Alright, a few notes.

-You know the old saying, "Only shoot for one goal at a time?"  You shouldn't
  have.  I just made it up.  Anyway, don't go for, say, beating the game.
  without taking a hit when trying to rack up a lot of points.  I'm cautious
  when I beat the game without taking a hit.  I don't hit all of the enemies
  that I could.
-That said, don't get a game over.  Game overs reset your score.
-Collect as many point pellets as you can.
-The clear points, with the exception of Dr. Wily's stage's clear points, are
  random.  Hope for high numbers!
-There are no time bonuses.  Check the chart below.  Defeat a high-point enemy,
  scroll away, and then come back to destroy it again.  If you want to be 
  cheap.
-Set goals.  I try to get 1,000,000 points per game.  I can get more.  Another
  old cliché: "If you shoot for the moon, you will land among the stars."
-Ignore the Floridian contradicting himself.
-Use the master weapons to your advantage.
-Each Dr. Wily stage (with the exception of the final one) will give you 
  100,000 clear points.  The final one will give you 200,000.
-Grab the Yashichi!  It's worth a whopping 100,000 points!

| 4.10: No-Hit Game Tips |
0=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~0

This section is designed to help you get through the game without taking a hit.
While this is not -- at the moment -- a full walkthrough for such a feat, it
does give you tips on how to pull 'er off.

Megaman is one of the harder games in the series to beat without taking a hit.
This is due in part to Hoppers and Bladers.  This is because the Hoppers are
unpredictable in their jumping patterns.  Bladers come in such patterns as to
screw you up.  First thing is first, though.  I spent a lot of time thinking
about a good order in which to do this (I personally use the regular order but
there are better ways).  I thought about this in the shower -- a good place to
think.  And that's life lesson number two from this FAQ.  See?  I teach!  I
taught about genocide in Chrono Trigger!

As for the boss order, I capitalize the names of the bosses for those who do
not want to see my long-winded explanations.  Each stage will have some tips
involved.  There is something that I must emphasize, however:

WHATEVER CRAZY STUNTS YOU ATTEMPT TO PULL, DO _NOT_ ATTEMPT TO DO THIS UNLESS
YOU ARE SKILLED AT THIS GAME.  AND BY SKILLED, I MEAN BEING ABLE TO FIGHT
ELECMAN WITHOUT CRY-  I mean WITHOUT TAKING A HIT.  THAT IS AS HARD AS IT WILL
GET.  IF YOU TRY THIS WITHOUT SKILL, I CLAIM NO RESPONSIBILTY FOR ANY INJURIES
(such as death, which really makes life hard) INCURRED DURING YOUR ADVENTURE.

Start with ICEMAN.  There are few dangers in this level that cannot be taken
out by the Arm Cannon quickly.  The only trouble spots that you'll run into are
the vanishing blocks (due to the Spike Bots awaiting you) and the eyeball
platforms.  It is always best to avoid the Spike Bots in the water.  This is
easy.  When dealing with the vanihing blocks, however, there is a GOOD chance
(credit goes to Murphy's Law) that you'll land on the Spike Bot.  Make sure you
know where the blocks will be.  When fighting Iceman, just hit him with the
Arm Cannon.  When he is running towards you (to get too close for comfort), 
jump over him and run to the other side of the room.  This is the easiest 
level.

You'll want to continue your trek with GUTSMAN.  I held off on Gutsman due to
the Hopper awaiting you at the end of the stage as well as a few Bladers.
I'll reiterate this later, but USE THE ICE SLASHER!  When a Met Miner lowers
his shield, fire away.  Switch to your Arm Cannon and have some easy pickin's.
Remember that, since you are not taking any hits -- and therefore not dying --
wasting time getting powerups is unnecesary.  As such, speed through the chasms
near the end to avoid a fight with Bladers.  Freeze the Hopper while he is in
midair and run under him.  When fighting the Metools, try and get them before
they shoot.  If all else fails, make a tiny hop over their shots.  Dealing with
Gutman is very tricky.  For the most part, stand on the Super Arm Blocks on the
left side of the room.  When he nears those blocks (this is tricky), get a
running start, wait for him to have just hopped, and jump over him, running to
the other side of the room.  Jump when he chucks a block at you and continue
your assualt.  Hopefully you will not have to jump again.  If you do, it's
very difficult to pull off.  Jump over him once he lands.  Get a running start
and don't jump until you are very close.  If you had to jump over him here, you
should not have to jump over him again.  Even if you do, you can just repeat
the process.

At this point, you can pretty much go straight.  CUTMAN is your next target.
At the start, grab the Super Arm Block and toss it at the oncoming Bladers.
As always, ignore the powerups.  Use the Super Arm Blocks to your advantage!
The Flying Mets might also present a problem in that they fire in so many
directions.  While it could prove to be harder inasmuch as you have to deal
with the Flying Mets for so long, it is imperative that you take the long path
when you've got the choice.  Taking the easy path relies on your getting hit by
a Flying Met as a failsafe in case you miss the platform and hit the spikes.
You will almost certainly hit this Flying Met so don't risk it.  When you reach
the Hopper at the end, freeze him with the Ice Slasher and then pick up the 
Super Arm Blocks.  Chuck three Super Arm Blocks at the Hopper to destroy him.  
As for the gate, fire three shots and run towards the first Screw Turret.  The
shots should hit it as soon as it comes up (at least one anyway).  Jump over
the Screw Turrets shots and wait for it to come up again.  To screw it over
forever (or until you go offscreen), attack a few more times to destroy it.  As
soon as the second Screw Turret appears, jump and fire at it.  When it's
destroyed, repeat the process used for the first Screw Turret on the third and
enter the gate to fight Cutman.  This fight isn't as easy as if you were just
trying to beat the game.  As soon as the fight starts, grab a Super Arm Block
and hightail it to the other end of the room.  Turn around, jump over the
Rolling Cutter that Cutman probably shot at you, and wait for Cutman to jump.
When he does so, take a little hop and throw the block.  Run over to the second
Super Arm Block and repeat the process.

ELECMAN's stage goes in a completely different direction.  USE THE ROLLING
CUTTER ON ANY SPIKE BOTS THAT YOU SEE.  This is important.  The Watchers should
be dealt with as usual.  When you reach the second path split (the first being
on the vanishing blocks where the alternate path yields a few weapon energy
pellets), take the left way instead of the right way that was used in the
walkthrough.  This is easier because you don't worry about Elec Beams; just
Spike Bots who can be destroyed with Rolling Cutter.  When you reach the second
Super Arm Block (to go to the other side), be sure to cut over to the right.
It is very important that you have the Magnet Beam for the next stage so get
it.  The only other important thing here is the Hopper.  As soon as you reach
the final screen before the gate, climb to the top of the ladder and freeze
the Hopper regardless of where he is.  Now switch to your Arm Cannon and blast
him.  If he unfreezes before you destroy him, freeze him again. 

So you want to get it over with quickly.  As soon as you enter, jump onto a
Super Arm Block.  Jump over his Thunder Beam and then hop off and fire a 
Rolling Cutter.  Avoid his other attacks and nail him two more times.

Now that we've got the Magnet Beam, let's proceed to FIREMAN's stage.  Be sure
to use the Ice Slasher when dealing with fire pillars.  Take your time.  This
is important in a stage that rains fire.  When you get to the > fire section,
use the Magnet Beam to skip over it.  

Finally let's hit BOMBMAN's stage.  The Red Screws are your main problem here.
Have Fire Storm equipped during this stage.  When you deal with Screw Turrets,
blast 'em with the Thunder Beam.  Be sure that, when possible, you refill Fire
Storm.  When you get to the Flying Met, let him fire once.  Jump onto the
platform and then blast him once with Thunder Beam.  The major problem in this 
stage is, of course, Sniper Joe.  Your best bet lies in the Ice Slasher.  
Freeze him when he drops his shield, switch to the Arm Cannon, and fire away!
Bombman himself is easy if you don't let him trap you in a corner.  Use Fire
Storm and fire at him when he lands.  If he traps you in a corner, jump over 
the bomb while Bombman is in the air above you and activate the Fire Storm.
The shield around you should hit Bombman.  That's your best bet if you're
cornered.

Now we proceed to the Dr. Wily stages.  Since they are, for the most part,
new versions of enemies whom you've fought in the past, I won't go in to too
much detail.  The walkthrough can help you with the new bosses.

Version 1.0 (9/12/02) - The guide is finished
Version 1.2 (9/14/02) - Because I'm lazy, I copied and pasted the ending
                        section from a different guide (still mine, though).
                        There was a mistake there that has since been
                        corrected.  I also took out my email address and added
                        a message board.
Version 2.0 (6/28/04) - The guide was completely rewritten/taken from Wily
                        Wars.  I'll correct the damage errors soon.
Version 2.1 (7/18/04) - I fixed the damage charts for everybody.  There weren't
                        nearly as many errors as I thought.
Version 2.2 (8/16/04) - I fixed a spelling mistake with my awesome artillery
                        of words.  The word, of course, was artillery.

You know, I really enjoyed writing this guide.  It was fun.  You already think
I'm crazy, but I kinda want to write it again.  Not because the guide is bad,
but because it was just a fun guide to do.  Anyway, see you.  Again, if you are
here for Megaman Anniversary Collection, I stress that you can find a guide for
it -- containing, upon completion, the same guides as I have here, but all in
one file -- at
http://www.meowthnum1.com/faqs/megaman_anniversary_collection.txt.  Anyway,
have fun!
