What is this?
-------------
This is an in-depth FAQ on the location of all the Reploids in the game Megaman
X6. Since I didn't see any, so... I made one. This is a first-time FAQ-making
effort by me. If you find that this FAQ sucks, and for good reason, please
email me about it. THERE ARE A FEW SPOILERS!!! Obviously, since we're dealing
with all the reploids that there are bound to be a few slips here and there.
Well maybe, I did write this up before I finished the actual content.

Also, recommend your friends to play this game, it's VERY good. This is the
best MMX game (next to MMX3) that I've played. A big let up from MMX5's big let
down.

*Remember my Zero/Nightmare FAQ is right under this!


Have you updated this FAQ?
--------------------------
Yes I have! What were they? I don't know. I just look around for mistakes and
correct them. I did add a note regarding the Jjukil's reploids FAQ.

For the second time around, I fixed up some more grammatical errors on this
FAQ. In light that you won't have to read it and go... "Ugh, why does this guy
have 'blah blah blah' spelled wrong?" or "No! You can't use that verb in this
situation!"

For the second time around, I also added a little note on "Why don't you use
version numbers?"


Message to the other reploids FAQ
---------------------------------
Hello Jjukil! I'm sorry, I never knew you're going to make an FAQ about this
kinda thing. Oh well, good luck on your next FAQ. You're all probably wondering
which FAQ to use now. Well, now that is a Frequently Asked Question. I have an
answer to that, you can:

Flip a coin
Eneee meeneee mineeeee...
Rock paper Scissors
War
Pick mine
Pick his

Isn't it such a big co-incidence that Jjukil would post up an FAQ at the SAME
time I did? No I wasn't stalking him, I don't even know the dude. Well anyways,
he also has a parts FAQ within his reploids FAQ. But I got maps!!! Yes, little
pictures for all those little kiddies playing Megaman X6 right now who need
visual help.


Where are you version numbers?
------------------------------
Why would I put up some version numbers beside my FAQ just so you can go...
"Wow!! Ed Mak just finished version 1.37 for his Megaman X6 FAQ!! We had better
re-read his whole FAQ so that we know exactly what we had missed! I bet I know
what he did!! He probably fixed that pre-tense verb where he used it to..."

Anyways, what is the point of version numbers in the first place? Just so you
can have the satisfaction of calling it a "newer version"? You can't even
calculate the version number.

This whole website has been riddled across with in-numerable counts of version
numbers signifying the uprising of a newer update. How did they come to the
numerical value from the edition of text? I don't know. How do you get from
1.45 to 1.87? Does that mean that they updated exactly 42 words? Or maybe they
updated exactly 29% of their content? Whatever they did, I'll never know. If I
don't know, then I won't pretend I know.

"If I had it my way", then the only way to figure out a new version number for
my FAQ would be to:
        - stuff a coulomb(avagadro's number... 6.022*10^23) monkeys in a large
          room
        - tie each monkey to a large iron ball next to a typewriter
        - give each monkey a copy of my FAQ
        - wait until all the monkeys are finished editing my FAQ
        - pick the best one
        - then calculate the version number by the net vector quantity of each
          individual monkey (which surprisingly is not 0) and multiply it to
          the inverse of any value of Riemann's Theorem with respect to the
          total distance travelled by each monkey within the room
        - go to Burger King if that doesn't work


How do I use this?
------------------
There are 16 missing reploids to be rescued in each of the 8 Maverick Stages.
In this FAQ, there will be the area name, a description of the level, and then
the 16 reploids listed as they are within the game. The reploids are always in
the format of "# of reploid - name of reploid" just to give easy searching
access.

I will also use the word "level" quite a lot here for my ease of explanation.
A  "level" is a section of an area. If you don't like it, tell me how you could
improve upon it.

If you like area instead of level, that's fine as well.

There are also little ASCII maps littered through-out this FAQ. If you like
these little maps and would like more of them, tell me and I might consider
doing a whole FAQ of little ASCII maps. Well maybe not a whole FAQ, but I might
incorporate some more maps into this one.


What is a Dynamo Stage?
-----------------------
I'll also use "Dynamo Stage" throughout the whole FAQ. When I mention it, you
should be aware that the stage is not part of the original area. The stage will
have a different boss. First it will hold fake Zero, then High Max. Afterwards,
Dynamo will be there for the rest of the times you go back. That is why I call
them Dynamo Stages. You'll also know if it's a Dynamo Stage because you have to
go through a bluish portal, found on each level (therefore there is a Dynamo
Stage in every level), before you can go into a Dynamo Stage. The only level
that I can think of that has two bluish portals is the Recycle Lab.


Some information before reading the rest of this FAQ
----------------------------------------------------
Now the only reason why you came for help from this FAQ is to know the location
of a lost reploid, or two, or more. I know about the nightmare phenomenon, but
keep in mind that it has little impact on the location of the reploids.

When you see a reploid, do whatever you can to rescue him/her. The only thing
you should be worried about is if there's a nightmare floating around. If you
see a nightmare not headed your way and you cannot rescue the targeted reploid
or destroy the nightmare in time then do one of the following:

     - Kill yourself
     - Quit the level
     - Move the reploid off screen by moving away from the reploid.

Or anything else in order to not have the nightmare reach the reploid. When you
hear a little click/latching/snatching sound that indicates a successful
attachment of the nightmare to the reploid then it's too late for rescue. You
can also tell by hitting it, if you can't hit it then it's too late. Once the
nightmare is finished then you can kill it. But no matter what you do, you have
just lost him/her and the bonus item associated with it, if he/she carried it.

You never know what it's carrying, unless you have read an FAQ about this sorta
thing. So, rescue them at all costs! It will also make you look good when you
rescue them all. "Of course I rescued them all. What FAQ? I did it all by
myself. Who needs those cheating FAQ's? Hahahaha, not me."

When you rescue a reploid that has a "Life +2" bonus, it'll go only towards the
character who rescued him/her. Therefore, only Zero or X can have a MAXIMUM
health bar per game. Unless you prove me otherwise.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

By the way, Zero has the ability to collect all 128 reploids by himself. If I
had a choice, I would kill off X and use Zero only :p. That wouldn't be
surprising either as Zero's purpose was to destroy Megaman X (hinted in the
story-line many many times in previous Megaman X games). Please refer to my
other FAQ regarding nightmare souls and Zero for a deeper explantion.

Megaman X can also collect all 128 reploids by himself. Come on, like
all the armour that he gets is not enough.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Sorry to say this, but I believe those saved games are hacked saves. I think so
anyways. It's not like I've actually took a look at it. All I know is that it
says MAX bars for X and Zero, and we all know that's not really too possible.
But of course, it could be a save file with two saves within it. Catch what I'm
saying? It's ok if you don't, you're just stupid that's all.

In case you're all wondering, I have a file that has normal red Zero with all
128 reploids rescued. Not only were they rescued, but each and every single one
of them were rescued by Zero without the help of X.

On the other side of the same coin, I also have a save file with X and... blah
blah blah. Ugh, nevermind. You catch my drift.


What is a nightmare?
--------------------
A very good question. There's also a very good answer that comes with it.

In EVERY level (except the intro), there are many of these medium sized flying-
parasitic-ugly-looking creatures that have tentacles. You hate the tentacles,
and for good reason this time. These horrible things will be your most hated
enemies when you have to witness it SLOWLY float through walls towards helpless
little reploids. You'll hear them relentlessly cry out "help", clutching his/
her guts in writhing pain and agony, only to see the nightmare spreading its
tentacles around their head and drain all consciousness until... After a few
seconds, the nightmare will have had consumed its circuitry, rewritten and
reprogrammed its DNA.

In any case, if you don't rescue the reploid in time, who's in the target of
the nightmare, then the nightmare will latch itself onto him/her and start
melding with it. After congealing itself with the new "host" it will now try to
kill you with his/her extremely powerful pellet gun. In about two dozen shots
you'll be dead from this wretched incarnation, so be very cautious. Whether you
kill him or not, he/she's still unrescuable (word?).


Why are all your things so unorganized?
---------------------------------------
Oh come on! Just because I don't have little numbers next to my headings does
not mean that it's not organized. In fact, if you look carefully then you will
notice that this is an EXTREMELY organized FAQ. It's free of most grammatical
errors and it looks nice. My English teacher always said: "Paragraphs must
SMOOTHLY flow from one into another, that's how you get more marks!"


============================== Reploid Locations ==============================

The reploids are divided up into their corresponding areas in this FAQ. They
have also been numbered. If you hadn't noticed in the game, there is a section
on the map selection screen (press R1) that lists the data of each missing
reploid. The numbers that are used to label the reploids in this FAQ respect
the numbers that are used in the game to label its reploids. There are four
possible status' for each missing reploid slot:

             1. Reploid name - rescued - "Bonus if held"
                       - Which means that you rescued him/her and now you have
                         no reason to be upset. Feel like a hero. Remember, +2
                         bonuses are rewarded only to the character who rescued
                         him/her.

             2. Reploid name - missing - "Nothing"
                       - Don't get this at all. This is bad bad bad. Doesn't it
                         mean that they're just missing, waiting to be found?
                         NO! In fact, this means that a nightmare has captured
                         one of the reploids and turned it into something real
                         awful. Try all you want, but you'll never get him
                         back. Better hope that reploid didn't hold any bonus,
                         or you're screwed out of that bonus.

             3. Reploid name - Death - "Nothing"
                       - You're not a very nice guy if you get this. Not only
                         did you let a reploid become craaaazzzzy, but you also
                         killed him afterwards. Death status means the exact
                         same thing as a missing status of a reploid... you'll
                         never find him again! Unless you press "R1, R2, L1,
                         L2, Start, Select" all at the same time, then select
                         New Game. Then maybe he'll come back.

             4. No Data - No Data - "Nothing"
                       - You have not found that reploid and you are still
                         looking for him/her. Nothing to worry about just
                         rescue the reploid and all will be fine. This status
                         has the potential of being dead, missing, or found.

Obviously you want to aim for a rescued reploid. Now for the levels.

-----------
Amazon Area
-----------

This level is extremely annoying if the tunnels are blacked out and only a
couple of spotlights, at the bottom of the screen, are your only source of
light. This makes it much harder to find the reploids in this stage. Don't
worry about it though, it's the easiest level. But in the case you can see
them in broad daylight, here's where they are.

       - First level is the area before you enter into the tunnel.
       - Second level is the tunnel after coming in from the surface.
       - Third level is the area after reaching an ice-coloured tunnel.
              - a top level exists above the first vertical rope you see in
                the level which ultimately leads to a Dynamo Stage
              - a lower level exists after climbing down the first vertical
                rope you see in the level
       - Fourth level is the area with floating ledges/platforms before
         entering the boss' chamber.

#   Reploid name   Bonus          Description
-   ------------   -----          -----------

1 - Mah 01404      Life Up        First one you see in the first level. If this
                                  is your first mission, then congrats on your
                                  first rescue. Just 127 more to go.

2 - Suketorm                      On the ledge near the end of the path before
                                  going down into the second level.

3 - Satton         Energy Up      When you reach inside the second level,
                                  you'll notice a big green mantis robot thing
                                  and a hole to the right of him. In there is a
                                  capsule. In front of the capsule is one of
                                  the reploids.

4 - Yonoji                        On the ledge in the second level. The ledge
                                  is kind of out of sight but there's
                                  absolutely nothing to worry about. You'll see
                                  a mechaniloid running, or I guess walking,
                                  back and forth on a little plateau. You
                                  should jump on him, jump off him, and grab
                                  onto the ledge to the right and Yonoji will
                                  be standing in front of you.

5 - Iso            Life Recover   You need to do some super-jumping to get to
                                  this one. He's in the far-top-left hand
                                  corner of the second level. He's out of reach
                                  unless you have the proper equipment. An easy
                                  way to do this is to use Blade-Armour or
                                  Falcon-Armour X, use the ice weapon from
                                  Blizzard Wolfgang, jump on the ice cube, jump
                                  off of it, and then mad-dash to the far left
                                  corner. He's next to Energy Tank. You can
                                  also equip speedster and jumper as well.

6 - Ryo                           At the end of second level, he's behind to
                                  one of those big green mantis'.

7 - Yantomi                       Keep moving until you're in the third level
                                  (ice-like tunnel). You'll see a pinkish
                                  vertical rope leading down. Believe it or
                                  not, there's a pathway at the top. Yantomi is
                                  at the top there will be waiting to the left
                                  of you.

8 - Tahei                         Slightly hidden. Right after rescuing Wahda,
                                  don't go down the pink rope. Instead, grab
                                  onto the wall to the right and climb atop the
                                  alcove/ledge. After you're on the ledge, keep
                                  going right and the screen will adjust
                                  itself. There'll be a nightmare beside Tahei,
                                  so zap him and rescue the reploid.

9 - Araki                         During the Second level. He's standing next
                                  to Kuborina.

10 - Goken         Super Recover  On the top-left-most platform/ledge on the
                                  third level. These platforms/ledges are
                                  grassy.

11 - Yars                         During the third level. On the highest
                                  platform/ledge, first platform/ledge from the
                                  right.

12 - Hanse                        During the third level. On the lowest
                                  platform/ledge, eighth platform/ledge from
                                  the left.

13 - Toshiji                      During the third level. Right above Hanse.

14 - Yoshimu                      During the bottom pathway of the second
                                  level, right before the part where you have
                                  to ride those mechaniloids to cross the
                                  spikes. He'll be standing next to a pit... a
                                  fake pit. Be quick, a nightmare is right
                                  behind him!

15 - Kuborina      Rapid 5        He's in that fake pit that I was just talking
                                  about with Yoshimu. He'll be right there
                                  waiting to be "Nightmared", so be quick! Just
                                  in case you can't see pink on blue
                                  background, there's a heart tank next to
                                  him/her. (middle)

16 - Wahda                        If you took the pathway to rescue Yantomi,
                                  then keep going right. Wahda will be waiting
                                  at the end of the top pathway of the second
                                  level before the vertical pink rope.

Northpole Area
--------------

This is a very slippery place. If you're not careful, you'll fall down or hit
some spikes. The avalanches are hard at first, but you'll find that you can
just mad dash across everything. The only reploid that you should find
difficult is Arthur. I think Capcom accidentally put in some very familiar
names like Ryu and Ken as reploids in need. I guess they should be more
careful next time.

       - First level is the avalanche. it's where the big ice blocks are
         rolling down the slope.
       - Second level is after the avalanche part. It's where the big ice
         blocks are falling from the sky and into some nasty pits. There are no
         reploids here, so I won't be talking about this area.
       - Third level is after the vertical avalanche section. It's where you
         have to zig zag downwards.
       - Fourth level is only available when you see fire balls falling from
         the sky. If don't, then there will be a couple of cracked ice walls to
         the right of the third level. It's where you have to walk past the
         cracked wall, to the right of the third level.
       - Fifth level is the part with the falling ice cubes, you must jump on
         the ice cubes and try to get out of the pit.
       - Sixth level is the part where four ice cubes fall down at once, you
         must jump in between the small gap that is available.

1 - Moringa                       She is in the first small alcove that
                                  protects you from the avalanche in the first
                                  level.

2 - Cody                          He is in the second small alcove that
                                  protects you from the avalanche in the first
                                  level. Very near Meringa.

3 - Ryu            Shot Eraser    This one's at the beginning the third level.
                                  First, you have to gain footing on the ledge
                                  at the top right corner. You can do some
                                  super-jumping, I'm sure you'll find a way to
                                  get up there. Anyways, he's in front of the
                                  capsule but a nightmare or two is on the
                                  chase towards him. Be quick.

4 - Guy                           On the fourth level (available when it's
                                  raining fire). There will be two holes
                                  created to side of the third level. Both
                                  lead to the same place. If you take the
                                  bottom hole, then there will be a small
                                  alcove right above you. Two ledges will be
                                  available for you to jump onto but you can't
                                  grapple the sides so you need to jump extra
                                  high for this one. Guy is on the left. (shown
                                  on map)

5 - Ken            Energy Up      Same place as Guy except he's on the right.
                                  Ken is right on top of a heart tank. (shown

6 - Nina           Weapon         In the fourth stage, you will notice a pit of
                   Drive          spikes that kinda looks like this:

         *Big note!! You can get to the Dynamo Stage by just using Blade armor.
          I wanted to tell you this so you can stop e-mailing about it. "How do
          you use Blade Armor?" Argh! Jump, hold up direction, then jump again.

         *Do you remember X3? You can dash jump twice in the air! And not only
          can you dash twice, but dash twice upwards. The blade armor is the
          only thing that comes close to that. (I wanted to emphasize the word
          close in the previous sentence, but I couldn't.)

6 - Nina (cont)                   You can use some high jumps to just climb
                                  down the ladder and retrieve Nina, but you
                                  can also jump down the pit of spikes and
                                  dash to her. Whatever you feel like doing.

7 - Batsu                         In the fifth level, you'll find him in the
                                  first big pit of falling ice cubes.

8 - Data                          In the fifth level, you'll find him in the
                                  second big pit of falling ice cubes. He'll be
                                  waiting to the right of you, next to some
                                  spikes.

9 - Regina                        In the sixth area, you'll find her in a small
                                  alcove to the left while you go up the
                                  falling ice cubes.

10 - Leon                         In the sixth area, you'll find him in a small
                                  alcove to the right while you go up the
                                  falling ice cubes. He's above Regina.

11 - Chun          Life Up        In the sixth area, you'll find her in a small
                                  alcove to the left while you go up the
                                  falling ice cubes. She's above Leon.

12 - Sam                          In the sixth area, you'll find him in a small

                                  falling ice cubes. He's above Chun.

13 - Naruho                       In the fourth level, you have to take the top
                                  passage. (shown on map)

14 - Dante         Jumper         In the Dynamo Stage, keep going right until
                                  you find a rope that leads down to a floor of
                                  spikes. To the left is an opening, go in
                                  there. You should now see another floor of
                                  spikes. That is a loooong jump. In fact, it's
                                  sooooo loooog that you cannot jump across it.
                                  I just used Shadow X to cross the spikes and
                                  Ultimate Armour as well. There is a way to
                                  cross it without armour though. Climb back up
                                  the pinkish vertical rope, then stand on the
                                  ledge at the top. The screen should start to
                                  shake and little fireballs will start coming
                                  from the sky. QUICKLY jump back down to the
                                  opening and be hit from one of the fireballs.
                                  This is the part where you should have D.
                                  Barrier equipped. Just dash and then dash
                                  jump to retrieve Dante. Not too hard, was it?

15 - Gomez                        In the fourth area, he'll be underneath the
                                  Dynamo Stage opening. A nightmare is nearby.
                                  (shown on map)

16 - Arthur                       Right before the pit of spikes leading to the
                                  Ex-item in the fourth level. (shown on map)

Magma Area

This is a hard level, unless you have the right equipment. You will have to go
through here multiple times until you have found all the reploids.

       - First level is the place with all the bursting fire things.
       - Second level is after you fight the second Mechaniloid, you'll end up
         in a room that has three pathways. The very top pathway leading to the
         Dynamo stage is the second level.
       - Third level is the during the fight with the fourth Mechaniloid where
         the lava/fire is rising up.

                                  Clarmon will be in the middle alcove.

2 - Chibon         Buster Plus    In the Dyanamo level,  Chibon will be on a
                                  ledge to the right. Count three fire spouts
                                  and you'll see the ledge.

3 - Kassy                         In the first level, Kassy will be on the
                                  ledge that's around six to seven fire spouts
                                  from the start.

6 - Hagi                          In the second level, he'll be waiting for you
                                  on the left ledge. It seems as though the
                                  whole "second level" is filled with
                                  nightmares but none of them will try to latch
                                  itself onto a reploid, for me anyways.

7 - Mods                          In the second level, he'll be waiting for you
                                  on the next ledge up to the left.

8 - Tazack                        In the second level, he'll be waiting for you
                                  on a small ledge to the right of Mods.

9 - Fugi                          In the second level, he'll be underneath
                                  Hatori. If the whole area has grey blocks
                                  everywhere (Recycle Lab), then there's
                                  probably a grey block blocking you right now.
                                  You can only destroy it using Metal Anchor.
                                  For Zero, it's Rakukojin.

10 - Hatori        Life Up        He'll be above Fugi, in front of the capsule,
                                  in the second level.

11 - Hayato                       He'll be to the right of Fugi standing on a

                                  Mechaniloid battle, he'll be somewhere on the
                                  ground in the middle. A nightmare is nearby.

15 - Keiji         Ultimate       Take the bottom path after the second
                   Buster         Mechaniloid battle, he'll be in front of the

                                  third level. You can catch him on the way up
                                  through the bottom path. If you took the
                                  middle path, kill off the fourth Mechaniloid
                                  and then head downwards. There is a nightmare
                                  very nearby.

Another hard level. These reploids are quite difficult to get. If you are not
quick and agile enough, you'll lose a reploid. There is a junk crusher (not too
hard to miss) that is above you. It will go up and down, up and down, up and
down, in fact it resembles a sinusoidal wave function. Remember?! Sine, Cosine,
Tangent. SOH CAH TOA.

Anyways, In the second level, there will be metal juts of the crusher that will
most likely slow you down or even block you from attaining one of your precious
reploids.

I recommend that you equip either hyper dash or speedster to cross the huge pit
that leads to the capsule/Dynamo Stage. A big hint would be: Dash Jump is the
FASTEST way to travel in the game.

        - First level will be legit from the beginning of the level and onwards
          until you reach the ladder that leads to the second level.
        - Second Level is the area after you climb down that ladder from the
          first level. This is until you reach the next ladder.
        - Third level is the area after you had passed that long narrow path
          that barely crushed you. The capsule is in the area.
        - Fourth level is the area that has moving conveyer belts. It's after
          you climb down the ladder from the second level and when you go
          through that bluish portal (not the Dynamo Stage).

                                  around on the first level, Quappi will be

4 - Dalihi                        In the next alcove, you can only crouch here,
                                  after ZigZag will be another reploid. There
                                  will probably be a small block that blocks
                                  you, but it shouldn't be a problem.

5 - Malon                         This one's in the next alcove after Dalihi.
                                  Sometimes a small block (use rock crusher)
                                  that blocks you.

6 - Wright         Energy Up      In the second level, you'll notice a large
                                  jutting thing that is part of the junk
                                  crusher machine. Right underneath the first
                                  one is a reploid.

7 - Leino                         In the second level, Leino will be under the
                                  second large jutting thing. A nightmare is
                                  nearby. This one's a little tricky since the
                                  junk crusher machine might block you from
                                  killing the nightmare and rescuing the
                                  reploid.

8 - Nakadai                       In the second level, there is a deep alcove
                                  with three walking yellow hats. Nakadai
                                  should be there.

9 - Miecha                        Right after Nakadai, you'll notice a small
                                  stubby jutting piece. Miecha is right
                                  underneath it.

10 - Eiji                         Right after Miecha, you'll notice a large
                                  junk crushing piece that's four columns wide.
                                  This one can be tricky as a nightmare is
                                  nearby and Eiji is right underneath the junk
                                  crusher.

11 - Toshi         Shock Buffer   This one's is in the third level. He's
                                  standing next to a very large pit.

12 - Inaria        Hyperdrive     In the third level, jump across the big pit.
                                  Inaria is standing in front of the capsule.

13 - Devilish      Life Up        In the fourth level, there will be a small
                                  jutting rock crushing piece that has spikes
                                  on it. He's underneath it. Pretty Devilish ;)
                                  Nightmare Warning.

14 - Kikuturk                     In the fourth level, after a small patch of
                                  spikes, two yellow hats will be walking
                                  around. Kikuturk is standing with them.

15 - Dajango       Sabre Extend   In the fourth level, Dajango is standing next
                                  to a heart tank in a small alcove. The alcove
                                  has ice covered wall tops and is the last one
                                  before the mini-boss.

16 - Bambu                        At the end of the Dynamo stage, in front of
                                  the boss, he's wedge in between the door and
                                  a wall. Nightmare warning.

Central Museum
--------------

This is one weird level. You'll come across these ghost-like blue transparent
totem poles. When you go through them, you'll be transported to one of eight
random areas. In each seven out of the eight random areas houses two of the
sixteen reploids. The eighth stage and the Dynamo Stage hold only one reploid.

Very hard to explain this stage, I think anyways. So I think I'll just use a
whole lot of maps. Although, there will be some slight variations due to the
nightmare effect.

#   Reploid name   Bonus          Description
-   ------------   -----          -----------

1 - Gold                          The only random area that holds only one
                                  reploid. Gold is somewhere around the
                                  middle of this area. This area looks
                                  similar to Ulta and Koi's areas except
                                  there's no ceiling until you reach the end
                                  of the area.

2 - Ulta                          Quite hard to explain and to show on map 
                                  because of the nightmare effect. Umm.. Well
                                  it's in one of the random areas. Same area
                                  as Koi. Appears before Koi. Somewhat near
                                  the beginning of the area. A nightmare is
                                  very close to it, top right shoulder of it.

3 - Koi                           Same area as Ulta. At the end of the area and
                                  above the last pit. Nightmare warning.

4 - Megami                        In the first pit of a random area. Same area 
                                  as Megami. Nightmare warning.(On Map 4)

5 - PL 98          Life Up        In the second pit of the same random area as
                                  Megami.

6 - Haven 7                       Floating above the pit in the same area as
                                  Tsuki. Nightmare warning. (On Map 1)

7 - Tsuki          Speedster      In the third pit in same area as Haven 7.
                                  Nightmare warning. (On Map 1 - Continued)

8 - May                           Underneath the Dynamo Stage entrance.
                                  Nightmare warning.

9 - Bro            Quick Charge   After May, you'll come across another pit.
                                  Within the gap is Bro. A small nightmare
                                  warning here.

10 - Ryno                         In the same area as Dungar. To the top left
                                  of the area.

11 - Dungar                       In the same area as the capsule. This is hard
                                  to draw on map because the nightmare effect
                                  varies the area so drastically. What I can
                                  tell you is that the area is quite small and
                                  square-like. Dungar is next to the capsule
                                  and is in the same area as Ryno. Nightmare
                                  warning.

12 - Chop                         In the Zig Zag area, Chop will be at the 
                                  third Diagonal. Same area as Home. Nightmare
                                  warning. (On Map 2)

13 - Home          Energy Up      In the Zig Zag area, down the fifth Diagonal.
                                  Nightmare warning.(On Map 2)

14 - Reyher                       On the top right of the same area as Phantom.
                                  Nightmare warning. (On Map 3)

15 - Phantom                      Midway of the same area as Reyher. Nightmare
                                  warning. (On Map 3)

16 - Mars          Overdrive      At the end of the Dynamo Stage, Mars should
                                  waiting in front of the Dynamo Door Boss.
                                  Next to it is a Nightmare.

Very ugly if you have to rummage your way around in two little spotlights.
As for those spikes at the end of the level, you can dash across them or
get hit by something then dash through them. Zero can get every reploid in
this level.

                                  time, keep going until you're above ground.
                                  She's at the top of the left wall (between
                                  the second and third control cores).

4 - Mayu                          She's in the large pit next to the fourth
                                  control core when it rains the second time
                                  around.

5 - Obin                          When it rains the third time, you'll come
                                  across these vertical floating platforms.
                                  Underneath the fourth one is Obin.

6 - Meeka                         After the third control core, five pits away,
                                  is Meeka. She's in the water and a nightmare
                                  is nearby.

7 - Mao            Energy Up      The section where it rains the fourth time,
                                  Mao will be on the second-left ledge from the
                                  top behind some spikes. (shown on map)

8 - Sakura                        The section where it rains the fourth time,
                                  Sakura will be on the third-left ledge from
                                  the top. (shown on map)

9 - Omy                           The section where it raings the fourth time,
                                  Omy will be on the bottom-left floor. (shown
                                  on map)

10 - Etsu          Life Up        The section where it rains the fourth time.
                                  This is a tricky one since you have to go
                                  through some spikes. These spikes, however,
                                  are tough to get past. You can get hit by one
                                  of the mecha-bats that drop bombs and go
                                  through. It kinda looks like this:

11 - Miho                         When it starts raining the fourth time, Mao
                                  will be on the second-right ledge from the
                                  top. (shown on map)

12 - Yui           W. Recover     When it starts raining the fourth time, Yui
                                  will be on the bottom right, behind some
                                  spikes. (shown on map)

13 - Al                           In the Dyanamo Stage, Al will be on the ledge
                                  second from the top to the right.(shown on 
                                  map)

14 - Nori          Hyper Dash     In the Dynamo Stage, Nori will be on the
                                  ledge fourth from the top on the left.

15 - Rena          Sabre Plus     In the Dynamo Stage, Rena will be at the
                                  top-right corner after a patch of spikes.

16 - Nana                         In the Dynamo Stage, Nana will be on the
                                  ledge second from the bottom on the right.

Laser Institute

I hate this level, I had to go through this area many times to get the
stupid reploid location info. The mirrors are the most annoying things,
easy but annoying.

#   Reploid name   Bonus          Description
-   ------------   -----          -----------

1 - Kazu           Life Up        Near the beginning of the first level.
                                  Floating above some spikes.

2 - Tempole                       On an invisible platform near the beginning
                                  of the level. Nightmare is near.

3 - Mihoken                       On an invisible platform near the beginning
                                  of the level, a little bit after Tempole.
                                  Once again, a nightmare is here as well.

4 - SiroMaru                      Read the location of Mochi because the
                                  Capsule is in the same area to the left.
                                  SiroMaru is right above the capsule.

5 - Mochi                         Keep going until you reach an area with
                                  lasers and mirrors. If you keep going, you'll
                                  find two doors: one that leads to the boss
                                  and another that leads to the Dynamo Stage.
                                  The one that leads to the Dynamo Stage is the
                                  bottom door and is filled with even more
                                  lasers. After you pass all that, you'll drop
                                  down. There will be a wall right beside you
                                  (to the left). X or Zero should say something
                                  along the line of "I feel a breeze nearby".
                                  The wall to the left is fake, or part of it
                                  anyways. Walk through and you should find
                                  Mochi. He's a little high up and a nightmare
                                  is nearby.

6 - Marl                          Marl will be on an invisible platform above
                                  the floor of spikes just before the Dynamo
                                  Stage. Nightmares are within the premises.

7 - Dai            Energy Up      Dai will be on a non-invisible platform but
                                  still above the same set of spikes. There is
                                  a heart tank underneath the three reploids.
                                  Nightmares, you know.

8 - Ghosn                         Dai will also be on one of the invisible
                                  platforms above the same floor of spikes just
                                  before the Dynamo Stage. Same kinda nightmare
                                  danger as before.

9 - Jin                           He'll be the first reploid in the Dynamo
                                  He's not too hard to miss. There is a
                                  nightmare around, but he's not going to do
                                  anything except try to kill you.

10 - Matumaru                     You'll notice, after rescuing Jin, that there
                                  are these two reploids, which somehow crossed
                                  a patch of spikes, waiting for you to rescue
                                  them. Very odd place for them, but so are all
                                  the others I guess. Anyways, you can use
                                  Shadow Armour (ceiling dash and spike
                                  prevention), or Zero's ceiling dash. Ultimate
                                  armour, get hit, Break Armour, whatever that
                                  will work.

11 - Taiji         Energy Saver   Right behind Matumary.

12 - Omi 1213                     If you count the ropes in the Dynamo stage,
                                  you'll find that Omi is beside the fourth
                                  rope from the beginning of the stage.

13 - Him                          Fifth rope from the beginning of the Dynamo
                                  stage.

14 - Kenz          Double         Sixth rope from the beginning of the Dynamo
                   Barrier*       stage.

15 - So 1          Weapon Plus    Seventh (fourth last) rope from the
                                  beginning of the Dynamo stage.

16 - Tack                         Last rope before the Dynamo Boss.

*I'm taking a crack shot on what the name is suppose to be. It could very well
 be "Defence Barrier" or "Dense Barrier" or "Dual Barrier".

-------------
Weapon Centre
-------------

This is a very short area, yet it can also be extremely hard if you don't have
the right weapon(s) and enough life. If this area is so small, then the all
reploids must be condensed in a confined area as well? Yes! Be ever so agile
to rescue the reploids because some of them are VERY easily captured.

       - First level is the section before the first power cable mini-boss.
       - Second level is the section after the first power cable and before the
         second power cable mini-boss.
              - When you defeat the second power cable, you'll be given direct
                access to the Dynamo Stage.

#   Reploid name   Bonus          Description
-   ------------   -----          -----------

1 - Zeroan                        In the first level, over the first pit is
                                  where you will find Zeroan.

2 - FFF                           In the first level, right before the first
                                  power cable. A nightmare is nearby.

3 - Doragoh                       In the second level, you'll find Doragoh IN
                                  the third pit after defeating the first power
                                  cable. You'll have to climb down the pit, he
                                  is kind of hidden.

4 - Paralla        D-Converter    In the second level, you'll see a slanting
                                  rope with a big pit beneath it. Above the
                                  rope is Paralla. Nightmare warning.

5 - Marion                        Just in front of the second power cable, with
                                  one other, will be Marion. There's a
                                  nightmare warning.

6 - Virtuf                        Standing behind Marion before the second
                                  power cable. Again, there is a nightmare
                                  warning.

7 - Tekk           Speed Shot     In front of the boss's door will be Tekk. A
                                  small nightmare problem is around, but he's
                                  very far away. I mean like, "Ok, reploid in
                                  front of me. There is a nightmare very far
                                  from me that's coming in VERY slowly. I think
                                  I will have a coffee break now and hope that
                                  I am not going to be too late."

8 - Shen                          In the Dynamo Stage, there are many many
                                  ropes for you to slide across. The first one
                                  above the first rope is Shen.

9 - Fabtron                       The second one above the same rope is Fabtron
                                  and there is a nightmare warning for this one
                                  as well as for the other one.

10 - Gital         Life Up        More less than likely will you not actually
                                  fall into the pit. When you do fall down, a
                                  whole new world down under will peak your
                                  interest. As you will notice, there is more
                                  to the pit than meets the eye. On the first
                                  vertical rope will be Gital.

11 - Metal         Master Saber   Underneath the third rope, from the left,
                                  at the top will be Metal. In Dynamo Stage.

12 - Rod                          At the bottom of the pit, between the third
                                  and fourth rope, in the Dynamo Stage will be
                                  Rod.

13 - Grantsu       Energy Up      There are these three reploids that seem to
                                  be one of the hardest reploids to get. They
                                  are all bunched up together underneath the
                                  last three ropes at the bottom. Grantsu will
                                  be the first of the three.

14 - Kurono                       Very tricky! He's to the right of Grantsu BUT
                                  there is nightmare just a couple pixels away
                                  from him. You have to be lightning fast to
                                  get this one. Hint: The ledge right above him
                                  is the ledge to the Dynamo Boss. If you fall
                                  down while clinging to the ledge, you can
                                  catch him on the way down.

15 - Daive                        You have to be speedy here as well because a
                                  nightmare is very close to Daive. He will be
                                  the last of the three. (To the right of
                                  Kurono)

16 - Sosalies                     In front of the Dynamo Boss door, there are
                                  three nightmares around here that seem to
                                  have a keen interest on Sosalies. Get him!
