----I. Quiz Summary, Quiz Prizes----
------------------------------------

Mega Man Legends 2 is a multi-layered game, with a few fun things to screw
around with. One of these things is the series of Pokte Village quizzes, held
by the Mayor and two of her best lackeys. You will be presented with three
quizzes, one from each of the women, and a final fourth from the Mayor
consisting of 100 questions of varying difficulty (because they are culled from
the last three). For completing each quiz, you will be given a prize. You can
also replay any quiz as many times as you like once you've completed them (and
get additional prizes--see below).

Of course, you won't be able to participate in the quizzes until you've
completely saved Pokte Village from the forces of evil. That is, defeating Tron
and completing the Ruins.

This FAQ is to provide anyone having trouble with a question to look up the
correct answer. In other words, we're helping you cheat. But I think even the
most hardcore gamer who shuns FAQs and GameSharks will be blown away by the
content presented in these questions. DIS STUFF IZ TUFF

--Quiz Prizes

For completing the first three quizzes, you will receive a Pencil (from the
small girl), some notes (from the older girl) and a Notebook and Energizer Pack
 (from the Mayor). The three academic-related items should be given to the girl
on Calbania Plains (the sister of the twins that you rescued from Glyde's
fortress--right? Well this isn't a walkthrough...), who will use them to teach
her brothers how to read and write (MegaMan is a true believer in Paying it
Forward).

For completing the Mayor's 100-question quiz, you will receive the Zetsabre, a
long blade that Roll can use with another item to develop a new Special Weapon
for MegaMan. You can also pay the Mayor 2 million Zenny and get the Zetsabre
outright, but this FAQ is about the quiz after all...

What is that other item? I won't go into too much detail, but it is found in
the Saul Kada Ruins (3rd Key location) in a treasure chest, so be sure to check
out every door! There you will find the notes Roll needs to complete
development of said Special Weapon, the Blade Arm.

The Blade Arm is essentially a lightsaber MegaMan can draw out at will (yes, it
is as badass as it sounds), and attacks with a 3-hit combo (a one-two swipe and
a jumping slash). It's not all Planters and Tootsie Rolls, though, as the Blade
Arm is an intense drain on MegaMan's Special Weapon Energy (the blue bar),
sucking up almost half of it as soon as you put it on! So use it in moderation,
and/or have Roll upgrade it as many times as possible (I'd start by upgrading
the Range if I were you).

Also, as an added bonus, when you complete each student girl's quiz three more
times, you'll get a new prize each time. Here's the chart of what prizes you
get each time:

Small Girl
2nd Time: Candy Apple
3rd Time: Candy Bar
4th Time: Strange Juice

These all replenish MegaMan's health.

Older Girl
2nd Time: Pokte Tea
3rd Time: Mug
4th Time: Pokte Pastry

These also replenish MegaMan's health, except the Mug, which can be sold for
quite a bit of Zenny.
