Hi, and welcome to my Mega Man FAQ. The purpose of this is to learn 
about enemies and find new ways to kill them. Once you know how to take 
out most enemies without getting touched will help you a lot. Here is 
how it will look

Name ------------ (1)
Hit points ------ (2)
Found in -------- (3)

Optimum Weapons - (7)

Notes ----------- (8)

Difficulty ------ (9)

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

1: This is the name I have given this enemy/boss. Most of the names I 
gave the regular enemies are made up, since I have no idea what the 
hell their real names are, so just bare with me on that.
2: This is the amount of hits an enemy/boss can take before it dies. 
Please note these are only for the regular Arm cannon, unless it is a 
boss with an accurate life bar.
3: This is just a listing of all the levels you can find the enemy in.
4: This is description of what the enemy/boss looks like. If you can't 
tell what enemy this is by the Name or where it is found, this will 
surely help you.
5: This is how the enemy moves or if it moves in the first place. This 
will also list the enemy's "Collision" damage, which is usually higher 
than most attacks it may use.
6: This is what the enemy can do other than touch you. Usually shoot 
something at you... I will list the damage area and how to avoid these 
attacks.
7: These are the weapons you should use to take out this enemy... 
naturally you must get these weapons before hand... 
8: These are just notes about the enemy or boss. These may tell you 
something amazing or totally random.
9: This is the difficulty and threat of the enemy/boss; 1-10 stars. 
Don't forget bosses are rated differently.

When I take about damage here is what I mean...

Imagine this bar vertical (Your life bar)
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
^^ ^  ^  ^                 ^
|| |  |  |                 |
1| |  |  |                 |
 2 |  |  |                 |
   3  |  |                 |
      4  |                 |
         5                 |
                           6

1 = Full health, if the attack does nothing, it is NO DAMAGE
2 = If you get this much damage taken off, you can obviously live from 
it. This I will consider 1-3 bars in the "LIGHT DAMAGE" area. 
3 = This is the basic amount of damage, usually when getting hit by a 
boss or touching a regular smaller enemy. I will call 4-6 damage MEDIUM 
DAMAGE. 
4 = This amount of damage is usually inflicted upon you when you touch 
a boss or a large stationary enemy you are suppose to kill to move on. 
When faced with this much damage, you should try to get hit by 
something weaker to go into invincible frames. So 7-9 is HEAVY DAMAGE.
5 = This usually happens from the same case as the above, only very 
rarely from anything except a stationary boss. Anything past 9 is 
EXTREME DAMAGE, and will most likely ruin your day.
6 = This is death. Only a very few things kill in one hit, in fact 
other than holes and spikes, I can't think of one. Otherwise this is 
FATAL DAMAGE.

From here on, the General area will only have Tips, Then weapons, Then 
my boss order.

Welcome to Mega Man 1, this Mega Man was the first to start it all. 
Here are some tips for this Game.

TIPS-----------------------------------------------------------------
-Spikes Grant an instant death, unlike the others, even if you are 
blinking from just getting hit
-When exploring new areas, walk slowly below jumping over gaps... you 
never know what is below you
-Try your hardest to get the "Magnet Beam" Item if you are having 
trouble with jumping. It is in Elect Man's Stage, you need either Guts 
or Elect Man's power to get it
-You also need the Magnet Beam to beat the game
-Energy/weapon pellets reappear once you step back into the screen from 
a ladder or a fall. This only works with preset ones of course and 
works also if you die.
-When fighting the END boss of a level, it may be a good idea to just 
die if you have little health before you waste all your powers, 
especially if there are throwable blocks. Once you die, you'll come 
back right before the boss. Naturally do not do this is you have zero 
lives.

WEAPONS--------------------------------------------------------------
Mega Buster = This is your standard weapon... you can shoot three at a 
time and they usually deal a little damage.

Hyper Bomb = This is a strong weapon that is thrown just a little bit 
out. Once the bomb is in place, it will take a tad bit to explode into 
a larger radius. This weapon is only good against a couple of things. 
Only very few low to the ground enemies that don't go anywhere will 
even get hit by this.

Super Arm = This is a unique weapon indeed. This will allow Mega Man to 
pick up blocks. This not only lets you attack in a very strong way, but 
sometimes you need to use this to get by. This weapon is 100% useless 
without any throwing blocks.

Rolling Cutters = This weapon acts like a boomerang. There are usually 
better choices, but this can be used as an indirect weapon.

Thunder Beam  = This is a great weapon. Once you shoot this baby out, 
it will head up, forward, and down. What makes this even greater is its 
size... It is about two inches on an average TV. This weapon can also 
destroy the same blocks you are able to throw with the Super Arm.

Ice Slasher = This weapon will freeze any enemy it touches. This weapon 
only does damage to a Few bosses and should only be used when you don't 
feel like fighting.

Fire Storm = This is a basic looking weapon until you touch something. 
See, you only shoot out a fire ball, but you also get surrounded in a 
little fire shield. When anything touches this, they will get damaged. 
Use this when you miss a lot, but still want that second chance if say, 
the enemy jumps over you.

Magnet Beam = This is a hidden item in Elect Man's Stage. It is about 
half way through the level behind a trio of blocks. Either use the 
Super Arm, or if you hate Guts Man's level, you can go through Elect 
Man's Stage Twice to blow up the blocks. This item is used as a self 
placed stepping stone. It can be jumped on, but here is something most 
people don't know about their first play through... the longer you hold 
down the button, the longer the magnet beam will be.

Boss Order-----------------------------------------------------------

This is the order I did the bosses in...

BOMB > GUTS > CUT > ELECT > ICE > FIRE
(Bomb beats Guts, Guts beats Cut... and so on...)


You can start with Fire man, but his weapon is only needed for Bomb 
man, which you can still beat with the regular weapon. By all means go 
for Fire man first if he's easier, but his level will most likely leave 
you with scares.

So any ways, I started with Bomb man since his level is easy and so is 
he. You should have no trouble with this. 

Then I moved on to Guts man, but his level might present a problem. If 
you have trouble, you can skip him and go to Cuts. (Use BOMB on boss)

When ever you get to Cut man, it's ok, he's not that hard to kill with 
the starting weapon. (Use GUTS on boss)

Any ways, once you are done with Cut man, move on to Elect man. Now if 
you skipped Guts man, then you will have to replay this level using 
Elect man's power to break the 3 blocks to get the item. If you did 
kill Guts man before hand, you don't need to do this twice... 
(Now is the time to fight Guts man if you didn't, that Magnet Beam item 
should make that Green Hatch part a breeze). Also remember in Elect 
man's level is a good place to use the Rolling Cutter on those sliding 
enemies. (Use CUT on boss)

Now go to Ice man's stage, this level should never be done without the 
Magnet Beam, as you'll see why. Don't forget to use it at the part with 
flying platforms.  (Use ELECT on boss)

Now if you did it the first way I mentioned, only Fire man should be 
left. If so, that Ice Weapon will work wonders in that stage. (Use ICE 
on boss)

Now you should be off to Wily's levels which are in order. Now if by 
any chance you have trouble with a boss or enemy, just refer to them 
below. This is why I wrote the FAQ...

still touch it to cause damage. (Light)

Attacks --------- When it pops out, it will shoot off twice, with five 
shots each. Two move parallel to the ground away from each other, two 
others go up at 45 degrees and the last goes strait up. This is easy to 
avoid if you are above it, just stand a little to the right or left of 
it. If you are on ground level, you can try to kill it before it fires, 
but it you are too late just jump the 2 shots with a light jump (Light)

                  shots off anything.

                - Hyper Bomb - Since they don't move, why waste other 
                  weapons? Use only on the grounded ones.

                  guys when retraced and will on hit kill them.

be at about 60 degrees, next at 30, then 330, then 300 (It is assuming

a standard form). To avoid this, you usually need to hurry and

                  has one shoot will take it out.

he will jump and follow you. (Medium)

Attacks --------- When he isn't jumping or hiding behind his shield, he  
will randomly shoot bullets that look like yours, ONLY if you don't 
shoot at him. To dodge these, just do little jumps since other bullets 
will usually be hurled at you. (LIGHT)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Booster - This is all you really could use 
                  against him...

Notes ----------- His shield will block your attacks. The only two 
times you can attack him is if he jumps, or while he is attacking. This 
enemy isn't that hard, he just takes a few seconds to kill. A form of 
this enemy appears in all the Mega Man games. 5000 Points.

Name ------------ Bomb Man
Hit points ------ 28 
Found in -------- Bomb Man, Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ A yellow, black, and red robot. He has a red mohawk 
and carries large bombs

Movement -------- All he does is jump across the room, and he tries to 
hit you while he's doing so. But you also have to avoid his bombs he 
will most likely launch at the apex of his jump. (Medium)

Attacks --------- The only other thing this guy can do is throw his 
bombs. Now they aren't that hard to avoid, but they can explode. It 
still isn't hard to avoid even that, but the only thing that can be a 
problem is he landing on you trying to take the bomb hit. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - It only takes 14 hits to take him out 
                  with this weapon, he isn't that hard to do it with  
                  either.

                - Fire Storm - It takes 7 hits to kill him with this  
                  weapon. You can use it any way you want to, either 
                  hit with it fully or with the shield.

Notes ----------- He isn't that cool looking... 60000 Points.

Difficulty ------ ***

Name ------------ Guts Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Guts Man, Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ A large robot with a large jaw and a helmet almost 
like a met.

Movement -------- All he will do is jump toward you or up. If he jumps 
strait up, a huge rock will be in his hands in a few seconds. If he 
jumps, you should not be on land when he lands as he shakes the ground. 
(MEDIUM)

Attacks --------- His only other attack is to throw the rock at you, 
once he does, just make sure you jump it. If you are shaking from him 
jumping up and down, you'll probably get hit. (MEDIUM)

Optimum Weapons - Hyper Bomb - This bomb takes about 3 hits to kill  
                  him. Not only that, but he stand still most of the 
                  time so he's easy to hit with. This is a lot quicker  
                  than 14 Mega buster Rounds.

Notes ----------- Everyone else finds him easy with the basic weapon... 
I don't for some reason... 7000 Points.

Difficulty ------ ****

Name ------------ Cut Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Cut Man, Wily Stage 2

Appearance ------ He is a red-orange and white robot with a pair of 
handle-less scissors on his head.

Movement -------- He will walk then jump. He does the same thing over 
and over again. (Medium)

Attacks --------- Ok, there are a couple ways to live in this fight. 
First off, his ONLY attack is using his Blade. Now, here is the most 
important part to remember... it is a freaking boomerang. Now, if he is 
far away, jump his boomerang and then jump it when it comes back. If he 
throws it close and before it returns he jumps, walk under him... 
because if you jump you'll most likely get hit by either his jump or 
the returning blade. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Super Arm - See those Two blocks in the room? Each of 
                  those do 14 points of damage. Two hits and he's dead.
                              
                - Fire Storm - Use this if you have it and when you 
                  fight him with no blocks.

                - Mega Buster - This does 3 points to him, so he's 
                  pretty easy right there. Any ways, the best thing
                  to do is to move close to him and shot. He will
                  get knocked back and he will throw a Cutter at you.
                  You should be able to hit him again, and if you keep 
                  moving forward, he will jump over you so you don't
                  have to worry about jumping over his return cutter.

Notes ----------- None

Name ------------ Elect Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Elect Man, Wily Stage 2

Appearance ------ He is a black robot with a little yellow design on 
his head. He also has a lightning bolt on his chest.

Movement -------- He will dash towards you and jump at times. (MEDIUM)

Attacks --------- His attack is deadly, his Thunder Beam attack. He 
throws it way too quick. Want to know the worst part? It can even hit 
you when you are standing on the higher level. The best way to avoid 
this is to jump EARLY and hope to make it over it. If you lack dodging 
skills, then jump into him on purpose! Yes, you heard me, do this so 
you take lighter damage. (EXTREME)

Optimum Weapons - Rolling Cutter - Do not think about even coming into
                  this fight without the use of this weapon. This can 
                  kill him just as fast as he can. I would stand on the 
                  higher area and try hitting him with a curve. If you 
                  can't hit him like that, touch him on purpose and hit 
                  him point blank.

Notes ----------- This is without a doubt the hardest robot master to 
kill in the game, and the strongest ever (I'm sure ice man does the 
same, but nobody likes him :D). He also takes 1 point of damage from 
your Mega Buster. 80000 Points.

Name ------------ Ice Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Ice Man, Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ A blue Eskimo.

Movement -------- All he does is move in a squared way. You'll know 
once you see it. (MEDIUM)

Attacks --------- He is another strong one like Elect man, but he is a 
lot more manageable. All he does is make these Ice slates across the 
room. This is the way he makes it happen. All you can do is jump 
between them. (EXTREME)

                    <                  <

                          <      <

Optimum Weapons - Thunder Beam - One good thing about him, you can kill 
                  him in three hits and you can get two off before he 
                  even comes close to hitting you.

Notes ----------- A dumb looking robot... 100000 Points.

Name ------------ Fire Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Fire Man, Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ He is a white and red robot with a furnace on his 
head.

Movement -------- He never jumps, but he walks toward you. (MEDIUM)

Attacks --------- His special is a tad different from the one Mega Man 
picks up. All he does it launch a ton of Flame waves. Now what's even 
worse is how they leave behind a little fire pile. Do you best to jump 
these and make should you attack every time you touch the ground.

Optimum Weapons - Ice Slasher - Just use this as you would your normal 
                                gun.

Notes ----------- 70000 Points

Name ------------ Yellow Devil
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Wily Stage 1

Appearance ------ He is a Huge Yellow monster, composed of many yellow 
puff balls.

Movement -------- When his body is getting put together, about 20 
pieces will fly to the opposite side of the room. This is a pain in the 
ass to dodge. The best I can tell you is have a lot of patients for 
this part. (MEDIUM)

Attacks --------- His only attack is a single bullet from his eye ball. 
This really shouldn't cause too much trouble, but it is stronger than 
the usually little pellet. (MEDIUM)

Optimum Weapons - Thunder Beam - Use this on his eye, that's about the 
fastest clean way to beat him.

Notes ----------- Ok here is a tip- focus on the blocks coming in. 
After you try this boss about ten times (Yes it will take you about 
this many tries). Now the hardest part of this boss is when this 
happens (He always comes apart the same way)

4th
3rd --------------------(=)
2nd -------------------------------(=)
1st -----------------------------------------(=)

What you do, VERY lightly jump over the first one, High jump the second 
one after touching the ground, you might have to tilt a little right. 
Then land and tilt to the right. This is his hardest combo in my 
opinion. 100000 Points.

Name ------------ Mega Man
Hit points ------ 28
Found in -------- Wily Stage 2

Appearance ------ He looks like... YOU!

Movement -------- He moves like... YOU!

Attacks --------- He attacks like... YOU!

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is what you have to do. You have 
                  to fire and try and keep him pinned in the corner of 
                  the room. The best way to do this is look at this pic

                            o            o
                          
                                                  o
                  If you can do this, he will usually jump and shot, so 
                  you can easily just stand on the ground and then 
                  start your next chain. If you don't know how to shoot 
                  like that picture, shoot on the ground then jump and 
                  shoot twice, land and repeat.

Notes ----------- Ok, basically he copies the weapon you are using, and 
uses it himself. You can beat him with many weapons, but each of them 
are also effective against you. 100000 Points.

Name ------------ Seven Bubble Boss
Hit points ------ 70
Found in -------- Wily Stage 3

Appearance ------ A giant bubble with a thingy in the middle.

Movement -------- All this thing will do is move around the room's 
edges and sometimes go across it through the middle. Watch out however, 
these bubbles are huge and may require you to jump on the middle blocks 
so you can make it over them. (MEDIUM)

Attacks --------- All this thing can do is shoot out little bubbles at 
you in the same color as the bubble itself. It really doesn't even 
matter if this hits you since this boss can be won just from a damage 
race. (Medium)

Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Use this on the first three Bubbles, it 
                  should take 10 hits for each one.

                - Super Arm - On your last four bubbles, throw a pile 
                  of bricks at them each. They will die in one hit.

Notes ----------- If you think you are going to die at all, DO NOT 
THROW A BLOCK. This will make the level that much harder the next time 
to step into it. If you did die, the best thing to do is just lose all 
your lives and continue. 70000 points.

Name ------------ Dr. Wily
Hit points ------ 56
Found in -------- Wily Stage 4

Appearance ------ It looks like a giant UFO type machine. The second 
form just reveals Wily's cockpit.

Movement -------- It just moves back and forth, not enough to matter. 
In other words, by this stage of the game, you shouldn't get hit by 
him.

Attacks --------- Upward curving Bullet - This attack is used on his 
                  first form. All it does it lobe a ball into the air 
                  and it comes back, nothing that hard to deal with.

        --------- Spinning plasma - This attack spins plasma in a path 
                  towards you... but it does a weird circular motion. 
                  This attack is hard to effectively dodge, but if you  
                  just walk underneath it, you will dodge it about 80% 
                  of the time.

Optimum Weapons - Fire Storm - For his fire form, get really close to 
                  his weapon pod. If you hit him with the shield, you 
                  should rip him apart in no time.

                - Thunder Beam - This time, most of your weapons do  
                  about 1 damage, but using Thunder beam will hit him  
                  twice with one shot. Since you most stay on the  
                  ground for most of the time to dodge his plasma, this 
                  is a good idea.

Notes ----------- Get used to seeing this version of Wily... The 
bastard uses it in the Second games as well... 200000 Points.
