    -----------------------------------About Me-----------------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    I have played Mega Man since literally the day I can remember. The first Mega
    Man game I can remember playing is Mega Man 2 on the NES. The first Robot
    Master I can remember fighting is Wood Man, which makes him one of my favorite
    Robot Masters. Mega Man has always been my favorite video game icon since I
    was a kid. I own every American released Classic Mega Man and Mega Man X game.
    I don't really play the other series' though.
    
    ==============================================================================
    --------------------------------About This FAQ--------------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    I decided to write this FAQ for anyone who hasn't been into Mega Man for very
    long and wants to better themselfs at fighting the Robot Masters with only the
    Mega Buster. I decided to include some videos of me fighting the Robot Masters
    just incase you can't understand what I am saying in this FAQ, you will have a
    visual example to go off of. I hope this guide helps you!
    
    I have covered all the Robot Master Battles from Mega Man's 1 - 10, Mega Man &
    Bass. The Stardroids from Mega Man V, the Mega Man Killers, the Doc Robots
    from Mega Man 3, and Bonus Battles against Mega Man Himself, Dark Man, and
    Fake Man I hope this guide helps you out! If you don't understand what I am
    saying in this FAQ, then follow the links after each Robot Master description
    to see a video of me personally taking out the Robot Masters, hopefully a
    visual example will help! If you like what you see then Subscribe to me on
    youtube, my username on there is Redmage1987. If you need help on any of the
    other Robot Masters, check out my guides for them on their FAQ Page.

    ==============================================================================
    ----------------------------------MEGA MAN 6----------------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    Mega Man 6 a lot of people consider to be the worst in the classic series, I
    personally like it a lot though. I loved the 2 Rush Transformations and the
    Robot tournament idea for the story (though Mr. X was just stupid. They didn't
    even try to hide it was Wily), The weapons weren't all that great, but I
    thought the stages and music were good.
    
    ------Blizzard Man------
    
    Difficulty: 5/10
    
    Blizzard Attack-- 3
    Snowball Roll---- 3
    Collision-------- 3
    
    Blizzard Man isn't too hard. He will ski (running for him) around for a second
    and then he will either use Blizzard Attack or form into a Snowball and roll
    at you fairly fast. If he uses Blizzard Attack, a random pattern of snowflakes
    appears, just do your best to go around them and jump over them. If he goes
    into the snowball, just over him, then slide away. He shouldn't be too hard.

    Blizzard Man's Fight is from 5:05 - 5:44
    
    
    ------Wind Man------
    
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Propellers-- 4
    Collision--- 5
    
    Wind Man is probably one of the harder Mega Man 6 Robot Masters, not the
    hardest, but can be if you don't know what's coming. When the fight starts he
    will either try and suck you towards him, shoot 2 propeller type projectiles
    that go up and down crossing over each other, or he will hover in the air and
    try to land on you, which he can be kind of fast. If he sucks you towards him
    slide away, if he shoots the propellers just over them when they both are in
    the middle of crossing each other, and if he trys to fly over to you and land
    on you just slide away quickly.

    Wind Man's Fight is from 5:45 - 6:15
    
    
    ------Flame Man------
    
    Difficulty: 5/10
    
    Fireballs--- 3
    Flame Wave-- 4
    Collision--- 4
    
    Flame Man isn't that hard. He has 2 attacks, the first one he will create a
    bunch of flame pillars from the ground in a wave type motion, just jump as the
    wave gets to you and direct Mega Man to safety between nearby pillars and
    stand there until he is done. He should make 2 or 3 waves of fire before the
    attack ends, but so long as you have found your safe place just stand there
    and you won't be hit. The other attack is for him to fire 3 slow moving
    fireballs, just jump over them 1 at a time. It is best to try and keep your
    distance from Flame Man to make avoiding his flame pillar attack easier. When
    he jumps at you slide under him.

    Flame Man's Fight is from 6:16 - 6:55
    
    
    ------Tomahawk Man------
    
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Head-Dress------- 4
    Silver Tomahawk-- 5
    Collision-------- 4
    
    Tomahawk Man can he tricky. Like Flame Man and most other Robot Masters, he
    only really has 2 attacks to look out for. He can shoot feathers at you from
    the head-dress on his head or he will fire a tomahawk at you. The way to dodge
    both of these attacks depends on where you are at. If you are across the room
    from him slide under them, if you are right next to him jump over them.
    Sometimes Tomahawk Man will do small hops, if he gets next to you and quits
    jumping, then you jump over him, if he does a big jump slide under him.

    Tomahawk Man's Fight is from 6:56 - 7:29
    
    
    ------Centaur Man------
    
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Buster Shot----------- 3
    Buster Shot (Spread)-- 2
    Collision------------- 4
    
    Centaur Man can be awkward to jump over, but overall isn't too bad if you know
    what to do. Basically try to stand in the middle of the room for the fight, if
    he shoots at you just stand still and let the bullet go over you, he won't
    move while the shot is a single bullet. When the bullet hits the wall it will
    split into 7 Bullets, again, just stand in the middle and let the middle
    bullet go over you, if he starts coming at you after the bullets split, try to
    jump over him and the bullets. Other than running at you he can also stop time
    with his Centaur Flash and teleport. If he teleports he will appear in a
    random place in the room, most of the time when he reappears he will use
    Centaur Flash, so try and jump as high as possible when he reappears so that
    he will run under you and not into you and you can still avoid his shots if he
    decides to follow up with that instead.

    Centaur Man's Fight is from 7:30 - 8:03
    
    
    ------Knight Man------
    
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Knight Crush-- 5
    Collision----- 4
    
    Knight Man really only has 1 attack besides jumping at you and running at you,
    but his lack of attacks is made up for in defense with the shield he carries.
    You can't hurt him from the front unless he uses his mace, if he uses his mace
    then either jump over it or away from it and shoot him. Try to keep Knight Man
    somewhere in the middle of the room otherwise he might corner you. If you are
    quick enough you can shoot him in the back while he is in the air. Slide under
    him when he jumps and try to keep him in the middle of the room to avoid being
    cornered and he shouldn't be too hard.

    Knight Man's Fight is from 8:04 - 8:38
    
    
    ------Yamato Man------
    
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Yamato Spear (Air)----- 4
    Yamato Spear (Ground)-- 4
    Collision-------------- 4
    
    Yamato Man can put up a bit to avoid. One of the few Robot Masters with a
    jumping attack. When he jumps he will fire 3 Spears at you, just try to slide
    under him as quick as you can to avoid him landing on you and the spears. When
    he is on the ground he will either run at you or shoot the spear head off of
    his spear, once he has done that he will have to run to retrieve it, jump over
    him and unload during that time. Even though he may put up quite a bit to
    avoid he still shouldn't be all that hard.

    Yamato Man's Fight is from 8:39 - 9:13
    
    
    ------Plant Man------
    
    Difficulty: 3/10
    
    Plant Barrier-- 4
    Collision------ 4
    
    Plant Man is easiely the easiest Robot Master in Mega Man 6. He does the same
    thing the entire fight. He will put on a Plant Barrier, jump at you, throw it
    off at you, run to somewhere close to where you were standing when he threw it
    off, put a new one on and do it all again. All you have to do to avoid it is
    slide under him when he jumps, jump over the Plant Barrier, walk away from
    where you were standing, and repeate, obviously hitting him while the barrier
    is off. He shouldn't put up a problem at all.
