    1.) Introduction
    Hello and welcome to my very first faq for the Mega Man X5 game! This guide 
    is to help you get through this game easier and I will also include other

    3.) Items
    Health energy
    This restores our heroes' health and also fills the E-tanks. These look like 
    capsules and can be found in small, medium or large amounts.
    Weapon energy
    This restores our heroes' weapon energy and also fills the W-tank. These look
    like blue spheres and can be found in small, medium and large amounts.
    These give you an extra life and look like X helmets or Zero helmets, 
    depending on the character you find these with. Injured reploids also 
    usually give you an extra life. 
    Injured reploids
    Just touch these yellow screaming reploids and they will give you health 
    and an extra life.
    Heart tanks
    These give your life bar a little permanent increase, but only for the 
    character you went in the level with. These look like pink hearts. Their 
    are only 8 of them, one in each level.
    There are two of these, and they store health energy. Once used it will empty
    but fortunately, you can use these as much as you want. These look like 
    little tanks with the letter "E" on it.
    There is only one of these and they store weapon energy. Like the E-tanks, 
    you can use these infinitely. This looks like a tank with a "W" on it.
    There is one of these, and this lets you start a level with 5 lives instead 
    of 3. This looks like a tank shaped like a heart with floating energy in it.

    Hover: No

    Giga attack: Yes
    Part slots: 4

    want to get a stage done fast then use this armor and the stage will be a 
    5.) Sigma virus
    Once you have completed the first stage you will start seeing purple Sigma 
    heads chase you. These "viruses" will appear in the stages to try and infect 
    you. On the bottom left corner of your screen you will notice a status. This 
    status changes when you touch a Sigma virus or later in the game, the Zero 
    virus. I will now list how the Sigma and Zero viruses affect your status.
    Number of viruses               virus status          Commentary
    0 Sigma virus                   Normal                Don't worry.
    1 Sigma virus                   Normal                Don't worry.
    2 sigma virus                   Normal                Don't worry.
    3 Sigma virus                   Caution               Be cautious.
    4 Sigma virus                   Danger                Stay alert!
    5 Sigma virus                   Virus                 Too late.
    Number of viruses               virus status          Commentary
    0 Zero virus                    Normal                Don't worry.
    1 Zero virus                    Caution               Be cautious.
    2 Zero virus                    Danger                Stay alert!
    3 Zero virus                    Virus                 Too late.
    Note: Notice that the Zero virus infects you faster and goes straight to 
    caution. Now once you've been infected to virus, you'll notice that X and 
    Zero have different reactions. With X you will start to lose health and
    with Zero you will become invincible!
    6.) Hunter Rank
    Once you've completed a level Alia will tell you your stats in that level.
    All these stats then sum up to make your hunter rank. This rank determines
    the level of your next boss. Good rank, the harder the boss. Bad rank, the 
    easier the boss. Now why would you want a lower level boss that's easier? 
    Well the higher the boss level, the better the things you get. Once you reach
    a boss that's level 4 you will have the option of choosing health energy or
    weapon energy. Once you reach a boss that is level 8, you will have the 
    option of choosing life energy plus or weapon energy plus and you will 
    receive a part depending on the one you choose.
    Here is a list of ranks I've gotten and ones I've seen. 
    Worst-E, D, C, B, A, SA, GA, PA and I think their is a UH. UH=Best. Not sure.
    The stats that determine your rank is how fast you completed the stage and
    boss, the damage you took and the enemies defeated. 
    So to get a good rank you need to be fast, avoid enemy's attacks and kill 
    little to no enemies. Personally in my file X is ranked SA and Zero PA. 
    7.) Starting/Saving
    Once you turn on the game there will be a cool cut scene and then you will be
    brought to the main menu. It will say game start, continue, options and 
    training. If you're new to the game you can check out the training course. 
    But if you want to start the game select start game. You will have the choice
    of selecting X or Zero to start off with. But there is a catch. If you pick X
    you will get his Force armor but Zero won't get his Z-Buster. If you pick 
    Zero you do get his Z-Buster but X won't receive his armor. 
    To save this game you will need a Playstation one memory card. To save you'll
    need to either beat a stage or die in one. After you do one of these you will
    have the choice to save. You can have up to 8 files for only one block. 
    Select a space and confirm. You will now have a save file for this game!
    8.) Walkthrough
    Now once you have selected X or Zero a brief cuts cene will go and then you 
    will start!
    Intro stage
    Difficulty: 1/10
    Items: None
    You will start off on a broken street. This level is very straight forward so
    I will provide little strategy. With X just shoot the floating enemies and
    either charge shot the cars or air dash over them. Keep doing this and you 
    will end up in a falling boulder place. Simply dodge these falling rocks and
    get out of there as fast as you can. Jump on the platforms and use the rope.
    With Zero, just slash the enemies and air dash over the cars. Do the same 
    stated above and then you will reach a ladder. Climb it and then the walls 
    will start coming in. Wall climb fast and don't mess up! Go through the door 
    to meet the boss.
    Sigma Head
    Difficulty 2/10
    Gives: Nothing
    Weakness: X-buster, Z-saber
    -Green eye attack
    -Blue ball swarm
    -Charge forward
    -Purple beam attack
    If X, stay on the left side at all times. Duck to dodge blue ball swarm and
    charge a shot while ducking. He will pause so you can shoot his mouth 
    (Mouth=weak spot). His green eye attack will follow you but you should wall
    climb then dash to dodge. Sometimes he will just charge forward so just stay
    as left as you can. To dodge his purple beam you should duck and charge. He
    will pause and you can shoot. Keep doing these and he should die quick.
    If Zero, stay on the left and duck to dodge his blue ball swarm and purple 
    beam and then he will pause. Run up to him and triple slash combo his mouth. 
    For his green eye attack, wall climb and dash. If he charges just stay left. 
    Just keep slashing and he will fall. 
    After this fight there will be a cut scene and you will go to the mission 
    select screen. This screen will show the bosses. Press R1 and L1 to go to the
    parts and canon shuttle screen. I will do the walkthrough in the recommended 
    order. I will not use normal armor X, Falcon or Gaea till further notice. 
    Thank you.
    Chase the Truck!
    Difficulty: 5/10
    Items: Falcon piece, Heart tank and E-tank
    You will start off on a moving truck. Just keep jumping and dashing on to the 
    next truck. You will notice that their are lots of enemies on these trucks 
    so things can get hectic. With X, try to avoid these enemies and jump to the 
    front of the truck. On all of the trucks except the exploding ones their will
    be a blue beam thing. Destroy it and proceed to the next truck and do the 
    same. With Zero you can try to defeat these enemies but I would prefer not 
    to. Do the same and slash the blue beam things. You will end up in a big 
    truck now. Go down the ladder and watch out for the spinning red thing. Keep 
    moving. You'll then see a blue truck and two enemies. Destroy them then the 
    blue truck. Keep going on the trucks and there will be exploding trucks. You 
    will get 9 seconds for these ones. Avoid the enemies and there will be a 
    truck with drills. These kill instantly. So try to avoid them the best you 
    can. One of these trucks has the E-tank. Be sure to grab it if you see it. 
    Keep moving and you will eventually be in a rocky warehouse. Destroy the 
    truck, head up and kill the enemies and proceed to the boss.
    Grizzly Slash (Crescent Grizzly)
    Difficulty: 3/10
    Gives: crescent shot and C-sword
    Weakness: Spike rope, Twin dream
    -Triple crescent shot
    -Huge crescent shot
    -Dive drill
    -Pop out 
    If X, charge up some shots while ducking to dodge his crescent shots. He'll 
    jump and then you can shoot him. After a while he'll start diving and popping
    out to do a quick attack. To dodge you should run back and forth on the 
    screen and when he pops out stay away and keep shooting. After you take away
    some more life he'll shoot out huge crescent shots. Wall climb to dodge then
    dash forward and shoot. He'll be dead in no time. If Zero dodge his three 
    shots and run and slash. When he jumps, you should jump and slash. He'll 
    start diving and popping out so run across back and forth and wait for him to
    pop out. Wait for the attack and then slash. He'll start shooting Huge shots 
    now. Wall climb, then get close and triple slash. 
    Obliterate the Battleship!
    Difficulty: 7/10
    Items: Falcon piece, Heart tank.
    You'll be in the ocean for this level so your jumps will be slower but 
    higher. When you start the level off you will be constantly be chased by a 
    huge battleship! So you'll have to be moving forward at all times. The 
    battleship will be shooting yellow beams from its head. I recommend you 
    destroy these as soon as possible. If you're X avoid the beam shots and the
    other enemies the best you can. If some enemies get in the way shoot them. If
    the enemies don't bother you then I suggest you don't attack. If you are 
    Zero, use the C-sword a lot and you will be fine. The enemies shouldn't even 
    get close. Keep moving and avoid the attacks and you will then engage in a 
    fight with the ship. 
    If you're X charge and shoot, but when you sense that the ship will attack, 
    duck and shoot some more charge shots and he should die fast. If Zero use the
    C-sword and when he shoots the beam just slash while ducking. The enemies he
    shoots out shouldn't be a problem. After you will be heading down, but you 
    will be facing the tail of the ship instead. If you're X shoot the missiles 
    and break the holes they are coming from. Grab the health capsules too. If 
    Zero, just C-sword the whole way down and you won't get touched. Again grab
    the life and you'll then go for round two.
    If X, use charged shots and move around to avoid the missiles. Soon two 
    missile holes will destroy completely. Keep shooting but when you're Zero, 
    use the C-sword like mad and you'll make this boss fall really fast. Keep 
    using C-sword and he will die. Move forward and you'll be inside a sunken 
    ship but their won't be water. Keep moving forward and kill the small 
    enemies. You'll end up outside of the ship and you'll face the battleship 
    once more. You're going up this time and their will be rocks and enemies in 
    the way. Try to avoid them as good as you can and keep moving around to avoid
    the ships beams. You can destroy these but they will just regenerate. Survive
    and then you'll fight once more.
    The weak point is the light blue diamond on the side. Destroy that and the
    yellow shield will go down and you can attack the thing inside. If you're 
    Zero, use the c-sword repeatedly and you won't get hurt! X will be a bit 
    tougher. With X, use the c-shot to try and make the multiple shots hit the 
    beams, the blue thing, enemies and the thing inside the shield. If their are
    life capsules grab them. You will most likely need them. Once the ships 
    destroyed you must wall climb to the right and stay there. Go through the 
    Duff McWhalen (Tidal Whale)
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Gives: Gel shaver, F-splasher
    Weakness: C-shot, C-sword
    - Ice maze
    - Gel shaver
    - Ice spit
    If X, just use your c-shot and it will stun him. He will eventually die but
    if you don't have it Duff will make his maze. Move through it and avoid the 
    gel shavers and then attack. Keep doing this and he will then move to the 
    left. He'll spit ice blocks, which can push you to the spikes which will 
    automatically kill you. Jump up and down to avoid, and shoot when you have 
    the chance. If Zero, use the c-sword but if you didn't get it follow the 
    maze, avoid the easy gel shavers and attack. He'll soon move left and spit 
    ice blocks. Jump up and down and get close. Slash when you got the chance!
    Dynamo attack phase 1
    You will then see a brief cut scene and then go into battle with the 
    mercenary hired by Sigma.
    Difficulty: 4/10
    Weakness: X-buster, Z-saber and c-sword
    -Blocking blade
    -Boomerang blade
    -Sideway shot
    If you are X, shoot, shoot and shoot! If he starts to block move back and 
    charge up, and when he stops shoot. He'll also use his pink blade as a 
    boomerang. Jump over it and shoot. When it comes back jump and then shoot. 
    He'll also jump and shoot two shots sideways. Just stand there and wait. If
    Zero triple slash him and if he blocks move back and wait. When he stops 
    slash him. If he uses it as a boomerang just jump and get close and c-sword 
    him. If he sideway shoots avoid it by standing or easily jump over it.  
    Electric Trap!
    Difficulty: 7.5/10
    Items: heart tank, Falcon piece.
    You'll start this level on the ride chaser! It might take you a few tries to
    get through this part. As you start, jump on the platforms and destroy the 
    objects in your way. Jump on the platforms then air dash. Keep pressing [] to
    destroy the objects and get ready to dash. If you made it, go down and 
    destroy more stuff and you're done! It's harder then it seems.
    Head down and save the guy while avoiding the purple ball attacks. Go down
    and destroy the enemy. Hit the long thing repeatedly and go through the door.
    Keep moving and try to avoid the electric thing and purple attacks. You'll 
    see two long things now. Get the reploid and use the platform to hit the top
    long thing. Keep hitting the two and head down. Keep going and two more long
    things are there. Keep going up and down and shoot if X, and for Zero move
    forward, be quick, and slash. Try to avoid the electric thing. It gets pretty
    straight forward from here. Save the reploids, avoid the electric traps and 
    when you get to more long things attack them, use your environment and soon 
    you will be head to the boss.
    Squid Adler (Bolt Kraken)
    Difficulty: 5/10
    Gives: Tri-thunder, E-blade
    Weakness: gel shaver, F-splasher
    His moves.
    -Electric ground
    -Lightning box
    -Electrical shots
    If you are X wall climb and try to get the gel shaver attack on him. If you
    are Force armor X you can charge it for a better attack. I also suggest doing
    charge shots. But if you wall climb avoid the electric box. If he puts the 
    ground in electricity stay on the walls. If he moves toward you alternate 
    walls and climb. He'll usually tri-thunder and make three electric balls move
    on the walls. Alternate walls and attack when you got the chance. If Zero, 
    again, stay on the walls. Alternate and use the F-splasher to stun him and 
    take good damage. You can also use the c-sword if you wish. It always takes
    moderate damage. Soon he should die.
    Fortress Lab Infiltration!
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Items: Heart tank, Ex-item and Falcon piece
    Move forward and attack the door and move. Destroy the little enemies and 
    avoid the falling spike platforms. Kill more enemies and go up the ladder. 
    Avoid the enemy or kill it and avoid the spike platform. Go up and wait for
    the platform to go down. Move very carefully on the platforms and don't fall.
    You'll see a couple of Sigma viruses here so if you are X avoid them, if Zero
    touch them. Take the teleport and you'll be on the stairs. Keep moving and 
    avoid the enemies. There might be a couple of Sigma viruses here and there
    so watch out. You'll soon encounter a mini-boss!
    As the blocks go down on the vines watch out and destroy the black one. The
    black block is the only one that can be destroyed. Just avoid the others and
    you will be fine. Head forward and take the teleport. You'll be in the third
    section now. Head forward and you will see a green generator thing. The only 
    way to destroy those are to use the c-shot or the c-sword. Anyways head 
    forward and avoid the generators if you like. If you are X avoid the Sigma 
    viruses and for Zero touch them. Head up past all the generators next and 
    keep moving to head to the boss.
    Izzy Glow (Shining Firefly)
    Difficulty: 2/10
    Gives: F-laser, C-flasher.
    Weakness: tri-thunder, E-blade
    His moves.
    -Green beam
    This guy is easy. If X just avoid being near him and shoot the tri-thunder 
    and he will be stunned and fall. When he flies around get away and shoot. 
    When he uses f-laser, tri-thunder the fly and him. And when he uses green 
    beam use tri-thunder to stun him and his attack will be cancelled. If you are
    Zero, just use your c-sword when he's in the air and when he uses the 
    f-laser. When he goes for the beam, quickly use the E-blade and try not to 
    get hurt and he will fall soon.
    Escape the space trap!
    Difficulty: 5/10
    Items: Gaea piece, Heart tank, E- tank
    In this stage you'll notice a sort of black hole thing, which will cause you
    and everything to slow down. But after a while there will be constellations
    which will then turn in to bats! Anyways jump over the purple enemies and 
    keep moving. You'll end up on a moving platform. Jump over the purple guy to
    get on the platform. There will be many other platforms so go on them but 
    avoid the bats or you can shoot them with X or try out Zero's giga attack. 
    Keep moving through these obstacles and move as fast as you can. Soon you  
    will see the E-tank so grab it. Move and you will teleport.
    In this section there will be up and down things. These will make the ceiling
    the floor or vice versa. Kill the enemies here and go through. Keep 
    proceeding and keep going through the teleports. Avoid the viruses as X but 
    for Zero again, just let them touch you. If you want to kill the enemies fast
    in the rooms as X use the tri-thunder (you'll know what I mean) and for Zero 
    use the trusty c-sword. Keep moving and you'll reach the boss.
    Dark Dizzy (Dark Necrobat)
    Difficulty: 3/10
    Gives: Dark hold
    Weakness: F-laser, C-flasher
    His moves.
    -Bat cover
    -Bat attack
    -Diving suck
    -Sonic scream
    -Dark hold
    This guy will usually be near the ceiling so as X don't use the f-laser but
    quickly wall climb and shoot. Sometimes he'll have bats around him so you'll
    have to keep shooting to hit him. Also he'll sometimes get the bats after you
    so use the tri-thunder to kill them. He'll also sometimes dive and suck you
    to get your health. Move-one way or the other to dodge. Rarely he'll scream 
    three slow moving circles. Move around to avoid. If a sonic scream is near
    you he'll dark hold (stop time briefly) so you can get hit. Just wall climb
    and shoot him to eventually kill him. But if you're Zero use your giga attack
    to do really good damage and stun him. Keep repeating. If you run out double
    jump and use the c-sword. You don't even have to worry about his other 
    Destroy the Time Bombs!
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Items: Heart tank, W-tank, Gaea piece.
    In this level their will be multiple 5 second time bombs so you must get to 
    them first! Anyways proceed and destroy the bomb. Keep heading in to the next
    rooms and get the reploids and destroy the bombs. One of the next rooms will
    be a bit trickier. You'll have to be fast. Quickly head to the top platform
    and destroy the bomb. Keep heading on the platforms and use the tri-thunder
    move with X to destroy the big trucks. If Zero use the E- blade. Then destroy
    the last bomb in the air. Head up now and move forward. You'll end up on
    an elevator. Ignore the enemies and make sure to get the W-tank. Soon you 
    will be on another elevator. Be careful for the virus and duck for the 
    spikes.Now their will be an elevator that moves up. It will stop several 
    times. So go in the spaces, destroy the missile trucks and the time bombs. 
    There will be sigma viruses her so watch out. Get the heart tank and keep 
    going on these elevators and avoid the spikes. You'll be at the boss now.
    The Skiver (Spiral Pegasus)
    Difficulty: 8/10
    Gives: wind spiral, w-shredder
    Weakness: Dark hold
    His moves.
    -Blue charge
    -Flying barrage
    -Wind spiral
    Alright this guy likes to charge at you so just jump over him and attack him.
    He'll also send a blue skiver at you then attack himself. Try to jump and do
    it again to avoid and again simply attack. In the beginning though you 
    shouldn't suffer on these attacks though. Use dark hold and then attack, 
    attack, attack! You should be able to take a chunk out of his life. He'll 
    then start to use his good attacks. He'll fly off the screen and then come 
    back from random directions to hit you. All I can say is move across the 
    plane and don't fall off! Then he will float and use the wind spiral. Stay
    below him and use tri-thunder and the c-flasher and c-sword.
    Dynamo attack phase 2
    Yes Dynamo's back and with a few new tricks up his sleeve.
    Diffuiculty: 7.5/10
    Weakness: X-buster, Z-saber, c-flasher
    His moves.
    -Blocking blade
    -Boomerang blade
    -4 shot
    -Rising beams
    Alright. Use the see the strategy above first. Once you've done that now I'll
    tell you how this guy fights. Sometimes Dynamo will use the sideway shot but
    now he will do it twice. Either wall climb or jump to avoid these. He'll also
    start punching the ground to make beams appear on his side, opposite side and
    the whole screen! When he does this either quickly attack him to cancel this 
    or go on the other side where the beam isn't. When he does the final punch
    to make beam columns on the whole screen use the c-flasher and with X 
    tri-thunder. If this does hit you, you shouldn't worry. He only does rising
    beam rarely. His other moves are easier to dodge.
    Red Hot World!
    Difficulty: 7/10
    Items: Heart tank, Gaea piece.
    Alright start by heading down quickly before the metal dragon heads spit fire
    and move forward once horizontal. Wait for the head to stop and the other one
    too. Keep moving and destroy the flies. Now head down. Here if the left side
    starts to erupt you must find cover behind something. So be careful. You'll 
    soon find melted walls so wall climb on the high cover area and wait for the 
    lava. It will break. Keep going through these obstacles and then break the 
    door. Now there is two ways to this. Go under the lava with the ride armor
    or go through the obstacles with the mini-boss dragon chasing you. I'll only
    do this for the mini-boss chase. Just jump on the rocks, attack the bats that
    come near and attack the fire balls of the dragon. When you come across a
    close destroy the wall and keep doing the same. You'll then fight the dragon.
    Just use c-flasher and c-sword for Zero to kill him fast and for X use the
    tri-thunder but when this guy charges at you make sure to alternate platforms
    and keep attacking. After that climb the ropes and head to the boss.
    Difficulty: 7/10
    Gives: ground fire, quake blazer
    Weakness: wind spiral, w-shredder.
    His moves:
    -Ground fire
    -Jump stomp
    -Infernal dino
    -Fire spring
    -Flame thrower
    Alright this guy usually jumps a couple of times then stops at a side and 
    shoots fire. When he jumps shoot him with X or use the spiral to stun him
    and take more damage. When he stops wall climb and charge. He'll also 
    sometimes go on walls and dash at you. Wall climb and dash to avoid. He can
    also get the ground to spring up fire and dash at you. Again wall climb and 
    dash whil avoiding this spring. When he shoots flame, wall climb and avoid 
    his dash too. With Zero when he jumps use w-shredder. When he shoots fire, 
    springs fire, spits flame and dashes at you wall climb. Then swoop down to
    repeat the process of using w-shredder when he jumps.
    Into the Jungle!
    Difficulty: 4/10
    Items: Heart tank, Gaea piece.
    Just air dash and avoid the easy enemies. Soon you'll see ropes leading up. 
    So grab on the vines and jump to the next ones. Avoid the shooting enemies by
    moving back and forth. They shouldn't really give you trouble though. Keep
    moving and you'll see pink big roses that will shoot baby mechanical spiders
    at you. Just jump over it and keep going though. Now walk and wait for the
    falling, spiky vines to fall. Destroy it and keep moving. Now head down and 
    avoid the roses and make sure you go to the left to land on ground. If you go
    straight you'll most likely fall unless you get on the rope. Anyways go on 
    the ropes and avoid the enemies on them. Air dash to the next rope and be 
    careful of the vine. If this place gets hectic use the dark hold. Get on the
    next vines and then you'll encounter more of the roses. Dash jump over these
    and avoid touching these things. You'll now be at the boss.
    Axle the Red
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Gives: Spike rope, Twin dream (YES!)
    Weakness: Ground fire, quake blazer.
    His moves. 
    -Spike rope
    -Spike ball
    -Vine grab
    -Petal shower
    -Twin dream
    This guy will usually get a fake version of him out and jump around. This
    "Twin" can't get hurt. If you're close he'll get out his spike rope (ball) 
    and the spiky bouncy ball. Stay away but if you're close attack this ball to 
    destroy it. He'll also jump to one end and shoot out a long vine. Stay away. 
    He can also do this with his twin so wall climb. He'll occasionally send
    exploding petals from the ceiling so move around and attack these. With X use
    ground fire and shoot from far. Make sure to remember his real self. If Zero
    get close and c-sword him and his spike balls and petals. When he uses his
    vine use c-flasher be cause it hurts him a lot. Don't use quake blazer, you
    might touch him and get hurt.
    After a cut scene will show the shuttle mission. Zero has the possibility of
    turning maverick. I will continue assuming he didn't though. 
    Unknown stage 1
    Difficulty: 9.5/10 
    Items: N/A
    Start off by going up to the left to get a 1up. Head down and pass the 
    enemies. Now you'll encounter beams that will automatically kill! So go down
    quick and keep going down and use the walls to. Grab the weapon energy and
    air dash over the enemy and avoid the Zero virus. The Zero viruses will 
    usually dash at you twice so approach with caution. Head through and go down.
    Do your best and pass the beams. After you'll be safe for a while. Use the 
    dark hold and go down the as fast as you can, grab the weapon energy and head
    down the many platforms. Now quickly dash for the next beams and head to the 
    Shadow Devil
    Difficulty: 10/10 
    Weakness: Tri-thunder, E-blade 
    His moves.
    -16 blobs
    -Fireball x2
    -Spike stomp
    -Green reflection
    This guy starts off by sending 16 blobs at you. This is pretty hard to dodge
    but you must jump over the blobs. The blobs will the form to make the shadow
    devil! He'll then have his red-eye pop out. This is his weak spot. He'll 
    shoot out two fireballs. With X easily dodge these and shoot him or use the
    tri-thunder. With Zero you can use the E-blade but you will get hurt. You 
    will also notice he leaves a green reflection, touch this you get hurt. After
    this he'll start to go from both sides. All I can say is good luck and dodge 
    here. He'll also turn into a spiky thing. Here is when it gets simpler. Just
    wall climb, dash and then attack him right away with the buster or thunder. 
    Zero use c-flasher and c-sword. You should probably enter this fight with two
    full E-tanks. And W-tank.

    Items: N/A
    Start this by destroying the big guys and then go on the platforms. Keep

    here or use c-flasher and tri-thunder here. Wait for the enemy to drop and 
    pick up its stomp thing and move on. You'll soon see spikes, the Zero virus
    and a couple of enemies. Jump over the spikes but destroy the big first. Jump
    the virus and dash jump to the next platform. Keep moving and you'll see a 
    ladder. Take it and destroy the big guy. Wall climb and avoid the enemies and
    dash. Keep heading through these obstacles and use your weapon. You'll see 
    the boss door but go on the empty platform and go through the "fake" wall. 
    You'll see a full life capsule. Now go to the boss.

    listed above. Just use the weapons on these easy eyes and they'll die. After
    a while the walls will come in with spikes at the bottom, you must wall climb
    and do your best to avoid the sun. After you've gotten his life low the walls
    will have spikes come out on the sides. This is completely random so do your
    best. If you have to hit the sun and go on the spikes while your invincible.

    and attack. He'll sometimes make icicles on the ceiling drop so move. He'll
    also get twin souls of himself to go out and dash. Jump and double jump to
    avoid these. Use c-flasher and the c-sword. If you don't want to get close
