Museum Items
  • Antique Bell: In the Clozer Woods. You know that room with the four large pillars in it? Each of those has a hole. One of these holes has the item in it. (The others have Zenny, so its worth checking them all, anyhow.)

  • Giant Horn: Get the Jet Skates and go to Uptown. Speak with the blue-shirted man on the right and complete the Technical Course through Rank A.

  • Old Bone: In the Cardon Sub-Gate. Get onto that very high ledge where you found the Spring Kit in the chest. As you approach the other door, be aware of the hole to the left.

  • Old Doll: In the Cardon Sub-Gate. You know those rooms with the exploding orange enemies? One of those two rooms (the higher one, with the hallway connection) has a hole. Check it.

  • Old Heater: One of the rewards for the Jim's Hideout sidequest above.

  • Old Shield: In Portal 2. You know that room with the small squat orange pointy Reaverbots sitting all over the ledges? Check a hole in here.

  • Shiny Object: In Portal 2. In the same room above, go to the northernmost ledge and go along it to the doorway. Go through and turn left. Defeat the metal spider and check the hole.

  • Shiny Red Object: In the Main Gate. You know room with the computer console and three dogs? Go into the hallways to the south and into the western rectangular hallway. Investigate a hole and you'll find it.

Easy Difficulty
  • To Unlock: Beat Normal in less than 3 hours, or beat Hard (any time length).
  • Bonuses:
    • You'll have the Buster Max from the start. It maxes all Mega Buster stats.
    • You'll also get the Jet Skates from the start. The chests for its items are already opened.
    • The Zenny gained is multiplied by four (quadrupled).

Normal Difficulty
  • To Unlock: It is already unlocked!
  • Bonuses:
    • None.

Hard Difficulty
  • To Unlock: Beat Normal.
  • Bonuses:
    • Enemies have doubled HP.
    • You take double the normal amount of damage.


Good

You'll turn lighter by doing good. "Good" includes:

  • Giving Roll stuff.
  • Donating to the reconstruction effort.
  • Return the trunk during the robbery sidequest (gives 20,000 Zenny).
  • Do the other sidequests.
  • Playing the KTOX games, for some reason.
  • Giving the museum stuff.

Effects on lighter MegaMan: It simply affects how people talk about you.


Bad

You'll turn darker by doing "evil". "Evil" includes:

  • Blowing up soda machines by kicking (may give free coke (saves 100 Zenny)).
  • Kicking the soda can into the Jetlag Bakery (gives 1,000 Zenny).
  • Taking the trunk for yourself (robbery sidequest) (gives 200,000 Zenny).
  • Blowing up the TV blimp (Bon Bonne boss).

Effects on darker MegaMan: Your kicks are stronger, and people talk of you differently.



Health Tips
  • Rolling makes you temporarily invincible.
  • You can kick soda machines for a free full health refill - however, the machine also has the chance to explode.
  • During the Bonne battles and other certain situations where you find Servbots, you can shoot them to toast them, then kick them a few times for a few energy cubes.
  • Instead of using an Energy Canteen unit, if you can, buy one Life Gauge unit. This fully refills the Life Gauge.
  • Whenever possible, buy a Flak/Kevlar Jacket (and equip it!).
  • Instead of running to escape, use the Jet Skates, unless you'd be damaged too much while they start up.
  • Instead of running around to dodge, jump and shoot back in retaliation!

Zenny-Grinding Tips
  • Do the racing minigames. They're short and earn a lot of Zenny in general.
    • The Left-Curve Course is the best overall for this. Why? Well, a pseudo-professional can do it in ~10 seconds, loading and all included. Each race earns 2,300+ Zenny at the highest rank. That can easily equate to over 14,000 Zenny per minute.
  • A GameFAQs user, ThatGuy4913, has another KTOX minigame-based idea:
    • ThatGuy4193: "Balloon Fantasy with Rapid Striker, Auto Battery, and Omni Unit Omega works well enough on Normal, at about 100,000 Zenny per 10 minutes."
    • My translation: Basically, you'll need the Rapid Striker (RPD +2), Auto Battery (ENG maxed), and Omni-Unit Omega (ATK/ENG/RNG +2, RPD +1). The Buster Max is preferable on Easy! Now, just do Balloon Fantasy in the KTOX building in Uptown. It may take some time before you get good enough for the ~10,000 Zenny per minute, but it works quite well. In theory, however, I estimate an easy ~30,000 per minute, but my times might be incorrect.
  • Go into a dungeon with the Vacuum Arm.
    • Recommendation: Go into the Cardon Sub-Gate and defeat the Jakko's Nests in the room after where the Yellow Refractor is/was. Return to the previous room and go through the gateway to Portal 2. Return and defeat the Jakko's Nests. Repeat. You'll need the Vacuum Arm (preferably maxed), the Jump Springs, and a Mega Buster with a fairly decent Range and Attack for a decent time-to-profit ratio. Generally, one trip yields ~15,000 Zenny (~60,000 Zenny on Easy), and each trip takes about one minute with a good Buster combination.
  • Sell stuff that makes useless items. You should only use the items that you like/want/need.
  • When refilling an Energy Canteen, instead of directly refilling it, you could buy one more unit for the Canteen - this refills the Canteen AND adds one more unit to it.
    • Note that this is only really useful if you came to refill AND expand the Canteen. Otherwise, just refill.
  • In Apple Market, there's a can. Kicking it into the Jetlag Bakery gets you 1,000 Zenny, for some reason.


Endlessly Falling

Requirements:

  • Red Refractor
  • Jump Springs

When the Flutter floats off the ground (after obtaining and installing the Red Refractor), get on top of it and get onto the back tall fin. Jump towards the western forest and you'll land on an invisible ledge. Continue forward and you'll see what happens... When done, use the Walkie-Talkie to most easily return.

  • NOTE: If you do this near the game's end (like before you set off after defeating MegaMan Juno), and land on the cliffs, you will not be able to return, as Roll won't get you in the Support Car.
  • NOTE: The above note also applies to certain other events, such as during the robbery sidequest. A general precaution is to call Roll beforehand, just to see if she will pick you up.

Endless Zenny

Requirements:

  • Unlock the Central Gate in the Main Gate.

Go to Data in the Flutter. Ask him and say, "I keep losing fights..." Say "yes". He should give you 100 Zenny. Say "no". You'll get 1,000 Zenny. If you say "no" to his next question, you'll be able to repeat this trick indefinitely and keep getting 1,100 Zenny as long as you like. But if you say "yes", you'll end up with a total of 56,100 Zenny. You WILL NOT be able to do it again this way, though... Sucks, eh?


Trashy Bird Nest

Requirements:

  • Access to the Yass Plains.

Kick the trash can in front of Jim's hideout. Repeatedly.



Money Values

This may be useless, but it helps to know how quickly you can get cash.

  • v0.10 - And yes, if you couldn't tell, I am fully revamping this - I AM STARTING FROM SCRATCH. I got as far as the Clozer Woods Sub-Gate in the walkthrough. Intro and Legal completed. 11:54 PM 8/4/2011
  • v1.00 - Finally got through the walkthrough. Added the layout for the other sections. (On a side note, just the new walkthrough is 3 KB larger than the previous WHOLE FAQ (was 45 KB or so)). 12:18 AM 8/6/2011
  • v2.00 - I finished the FAQ, and am going to play the game one last time, using it, to check for accuracy. 12:46 AM 8/7/2011
  • Final - Found errors. Corrected said errors. 7:30 PM 8/7/2011

  • Post-Final Changes:

    • Added a new cash-gaining tip! 3:04 PM 12/3/2011

    • Readability and grammar edit in the Special Weapons section. 12:05 AM 12/9/2011

    • Finalized the Junk Shop Data, fixed a few typos, rearranged a few things, and I think I'm done with this. 11:10 PM 7/26/2012
    • Major format reworking, most of it on the backend for my benefit, but plenty for you, too. 2:41 AM 3/13/2013
