    Hi, and welcome to my Mega Man 2 FAQ. The purpose of this is to learn 
    about enemies and find new ways to kill them. Once you know how to take 
    out most enemies without getting touched will help you a lot. Here is 
    how it will look

    1: This is the name I have given this enemy/boss. Most of the names I 
    gave the regular enemies are made up, since I have no idea what the 
    hell their real names are, so just bare with me on that.
    2: This is the amount of hits an enemy/boss can take before it dies. 
    Please note these are only for the regular Arm cannon, unless it is a 
    boss with an accurate life bar.
    3: This is just a listing of all the levels you can find the enemy in.
    4: This is description of what the enemy/boss looks like. If you can't 
    tell what enemy this is by the Name or where it is found, this will 
    surely help you.
    5: This is how the enemy moves or if it moves in the first place. This 
    will also list the enemy's "Collision" damage, which is usually higher 
    than most attacks it may use.
    6: This is what the enemy can do other than touch you. Usually shoot 
    something at you... I will list the damage area and how to avoid these 
    attacks.
    7: These are the weapons you should use to take out this enemy... 
    naturally you must get these weapons before hand... 
    8: These are just notes about the enemy or boss. These may tell you 
    something amazing or totally random.
    9: This is the difficulty and threat of the enemy/boss; 1-10 stars. 
    Don't forget bosses are rated differently.
    
    When I take about damage here is what I mean...
    
    Imagine this bar vertical (Your life bar)
    ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    ^^ ^  ^  ^                 ^
    || |  |  |                 |
    1| |  |  |                 |
     2 |  |  |                 |
       3  |  |                 |
          4  |                 |
             5                 |
                               6
    
    1 = Full health, if the attack does nothing, it is NO DAMAGE
    2 = If you get this much damage taken off, you can obviously live from 
    it. This I will consider 1-3 bars in the "LIGHT DAMAGE" area. 
    3 = This is the basic amount of damage, usually when getting hit by a 
    boss or touching a regular smaller enemy. I will call 4-6 damage MEDIUM 
    DAMAGE. 
    4 = This amount of damage is usually inflicted upon you when you touch 
    a boss or a large stationary enemy you are suppose to kill to move on. 
    When faced with this much damage, you should try to get hit by 
    something weaker to go into invincible frames. So 7-9 is HEAVY DAMAGE.
    5 = This usually happens from the same case as the above, only very 
    rarely from anything except a stationary boss. Anything past 9 is 
    EXTREME DAMAGE, and will most likely ruin your day.
    6 = This is death. Only a very few things kill in one hit, in fact 
    other than holes and spikes, I can't think of one. Otherwise this is 
    FATAL DAMAGE.
    
    From here on, the General area will only have Tips, Then weapons, Then 
    my boss order.

    This is Mega Man 2, this game didn't have too many new things aside 
    from using energy tanks and more levels.
    
    Tips-----------------------------------------------------------------
    -Spikes still kill in one hit, but can be stepped on for a little bit 
    once you go into damage/flashing screens.
    -When exploring new areas, walk slowly below jumping over gaps... you 
    never know what is below you
    -If you think you are going to need a power up later, don't waste it... 
    as they do not come back like in the original
    -Energy tanks are a new thing in Mega Man up to this point... you hold 
    them and are used like say a Medipack like in any other game. You can 
    hold 4 of them and they restore all your health.
    -Unlike Mega Man 3-6, "E-Tanks" can not be stored... that means once 
    you lose a continue, they all go bye bye. If you are about to die on 
    your last life, make sure you use an E tank, as it will only waste any 
    ways.
    -When fighting the END boss of a level, it may be a good idea to just 
    die if you have little health before you waste all your powers, 
    especially something like Atomic Fire or Flash Stopper. Once you die, 
    you'll come back right before the boss. Naturally do not do this if you 
    have zero lives.
    -Disregard the above if you die at a none robot-master boss as you 
    might start at the regular checkpoint, thus you might be able to 
    restore these powers.
    -Without a doubt, this game has the shortest invincible frames for 
    bosses from the 8 original Mage Man Games... take advantage over this.
    -Hard mode offers very little except for some enemies and most bosses 
    take more to kill.
    -I wrote this guide using easy mode... I will write a note or two 
    telling you the hard differences.
    
    
    WEAPONS--------------------------------------------------------------
    Mega Buster = This is your standard weapon... you can shoot three at a 
    time and they usually deal a little damage.
    
    Air Shooter = This is a nice juicy triple shots air cannon. What makes 
    this puppy even better is that not only is it strong and can hit three 
    times, it also up-curves to hit air-borne enemies. The only bad thing 
    is if you miss, you must wait till they ALL leave the screen to shoot 
    them again.
    
    Time Stopper = This weapon will freeze time... all of it. Time Stopper 
    will stop enemies, some bosses, and environmental hazards such as 
    dropping chains, conveyer belts, and the lasers in Quick Man's Stage. 
    There are two bad things about this power -- you can't use anything you 
    damage anybody, and once you start it, it doesn't stop until you are 
    out of energy. In other words, you can use it ONCE.
    
    Quick Boomerang = This weapon is almost like your regular weapon, but 
    with a few differences... first it only goes about half the screen 
    because it curves downwards (Which is good because it can hit things a 
    little higher and a lot lower than your normal weapon). Another good 
    part is that you can have 4 of these guys on the screen for a good 
    rapid fire. Oh and 8 shots take down an energy pellet.
    
    Metal Blade = Undisputedly one of the best weapons of not only the 
    game, but of almost every Mega Man. First of all, it is strong, most 
    enemies and even the bosses are weak against this weapon. Next this guy 
    can be launched in ALL EIGHT DICRECTIONS by pressing the D pad in the 
    way you want. Third, it is a big weapon so it is easy to hit with and 
    it can pierce. There is one little problem with this item... you can't 
    walk while you shoot, since you throw the blades. 
    
    Crash Bomb = A more tactical weapon. You launch this bomb out strait 
    forward... if it hits an enemy, it will do major damage. If it hits a 
    wall, it will stay there for a little while and then explode. These are 
    also the only things that can destroy a certain type of walls.
    
    Bubble Lead = This weapon will allow you to toss a big bubble out that 
    will travel on the surface. As it rolls, it will damage anything in its 
    way: if it is enough to overkill the enemy, it will continue rolling.
    
    Atomic Fire = This is a weapon like the charged shot Mega Buster in the 
    sequels. You can either shoot a VERY weak shot, or hold in the fire 
    button for a while. This takes a long time to charge and when it is 
    ready you will flash in a greenish color. Once charged, it will be 
    extremely powerful but it takes a lot of energy to use.
    
    Leaf Shield = Once fired, four green leafs will continue to circle you, 
    damaging anything it touches. Once you move left or right, the circle 
    of leaves will be shot in that direction killing most things it 
    touches.
    
    Item 1 = This will launch out a little platform that Mega Man can step 
    on. All this baby will do is float up for a little bit so you can get 
    to farther places. You can have three out at once.
    
    Item 2 = This will make a little jet board out in front of you that 
    will launch once you step on it. All it can do is fly you over things, 
    it will perish once it hits any form of ground. Make sure you have 
    enough energy before you ride, as once it is gone, it will also 
    disappear, even in mid air.
    
    Item 3 = This item is a unique one. It will bounce until it hits a 
    wall, then once you jump on it, it will move up it. The uses for this 
    are all basically preset, very rarely is an Item 3 better for the case 
    than the first Item... unless you want to save them.
    
    Boss Order-----------------------------------------------------------
    
    AIR > FLASH > QUICK > METAL > CRASH > BUBBLE > HEAT > WOOD
    
    I start with Air Man, true is level is a pain if you just learned how 
    to play this game, but you don't really need any weapons to beat it. 
    Air man can be defeated with just the regular weapon with easy as well.
    
    Then I head to Flash man's level. This is another easy level, but even 
    easier when you can use Air to kill Mech Joe's in one hit. You will 
    have to use the regular weapon again. Using item 2 when you reach the 
    very end will help you get the E tank if you can't jump.
    
    I now go to Quick Man's stage. The Flash stopper helps a very lot in 
    his stage, but if you don't use it there, it will take half his health 
    away. Plus Air helps versus the Joes and even the boss when he jumps. 
    Don't forget to use Item 3 to get the free life at the level's start.
    
    I then go to Metal Man's stage. I use the Flash on the falling spikes, 
    and Quick on a few enemies and the boss. Remember to use item 2 in get 
    the free life and E tank.
    
    Crash man's level is easy, and actually can be done second, but having 
    Metal Blades through out this level will help with the annoying 
    enemies. Use Air on the boss for an easy victory. Remember to use item 
    2 to get up for the E tank area at the end of the level and again to 
    get the free life.
    
    Bubble Man's level is also an easy one. I would use Quick for the first 
    half of the level, then change to Metal blades when you reach your 
    first angler fish. Even use this weapon for the boss.
    
    Heat man's level is extremely hard without items. Use them whenever a 
    disappearing block part comes up... remember to save Item 2 for the 
    long end. I would use Metal Blades for the whole level up till the very 
    end, since those flying robots are annoying and can spell death if you 
    hit one over a hole. Use bubble on the boss.
    
    I chose to do Wood man's level last because his weapon really isn't 
    that helpful... Remember to use Flash right after the first dog to walk 
    by the other two. Use either Air/Crash/Heat on Wood Man.
    
    After this level, you are on to Wily's Castle.

    Name ------------ Flying Air Robot
    Hit points ------ 1
    Found in -------- Air Man
    
    Appearance ------ This is a little black round robot with moving gold 
    lips. It is found coming out of large red hovering robots with white 
    hair and horns.
    
    Movement -------- Once you step on one of the Red robots in Air Man's 
    stage, these little guys will come out of the sides and slowly rise up 
    then home in to you. To avoid these guys, just shoot them before they 
    come close. (Light)
    
    Attacks --------- NONE
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - One hit and they die, nothing else to 
    it.
    
    Notes ----------- I just didn't know what to call it... but you know 
    what they are once you step into his level...
    
    Difficulty ------ *
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    Name ------------ Lightning Bolt Bot
    Hit points ------ 2 
    Found in -------- Air Man
    
    Appearance ------ These are the upper half of a robot found on a moving 
    cloud. The most distinct characteristic... they hold a lightning bolt.
    
    Movement -------- They move in a little circle with their cloud. You 
    should never collide with them. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Lightning Toss - They will hit you with their 
    lightning, ONLY if you jerk around with killing them. This attack is 
    very inaccurate and has a great delay. If you jump and shoot them twice 
    right when you see them, this should never affect you in the least bit. 
    (Medium) 
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just hit the up part of the robot (The 
    body) with two hits. Be VERY careful since you might have to jump and 
    you are most likely on a moving platform.
    
                    - Metal Blades - They aren't that damaging against 
    them, but they will allow you to hit these guys at an angle.
    
    Notes ----------- You need their platforms to ride on. If you miss 
    these guys the platform will go outside the screen and just respawn 
    another one. These guys take around an extra hit on the Hard mode.
    
    Difficulty ------ ***
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    Name ------------ Egg Dropping Bird
    Hit points ------ 1
    Found in -------- Air Man, Crash Man, Wood Man, Wily Stage 1
    
    Appearance ------ This is a bird that drops an egg.
    
    Movement -------- This bird will just move at the top of the screen 
    either left of right. It will drop an egg right in front of you. This 
    bird should never hit you.
    
    Attacks --------- Egg Drop - This bird will drop an egg right in front 
    of you. There are many things you can do at this point. The safe way to 
    avoid this attack is to just kill the egg in mid air. If you do it this 
    way, you don't have to fight the little birds that just swoop towards 
    you. (Light)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - If you know what you are doing, you 
    should be able to knock out a few little birds then jump through them 
    and kill the rest. This is harder to do than the other choices.
    
                    - Metal Blades - Launching just one of these right when 
    the egg explodes will most likely kill ALL of them. You can even take 
    out the bird that drops the egg as well!
    
                    - Time Stopper - This only works that great in Crash 
    Man's level, where you are climbing up a long ladder. This will stop 
    the birds so you don't get hit.
    
                    - Leaf Shield - If you shoot out the leaf shield, it 
    will act like a big area of effect Metal Blade. You can also just keep 
    the shield on and let the birds fly into you!
    
    Notes ----------- These birds are great to kill when low on supplies. 
    If you use a Metal Blade or Leaf Shield, you can kill all eight of the 
    little birds in seconds, that means eight chances to drop items. These 
    are probably the best of the best in item hunting. 
    
    Difficulty ------ **

    Name ------------ Worm Dispenser/Worm 
    Hit points ------ 3 Each
    Found in -------- Air Man, Flash Man, Quick Man, Wily Stage 1
    
    Appearance ------ These are little things on the ground that make 
    little blue cheese doodle worms that jump out and squiggle.  
    
    Movement -------- One the worms jump out, they will most likely try to 
    land were you are. If you just move, they will not hit you. Once they 
    are in the ground, just kill them, since they don't move at all. 
    (Light)
    
    Attacks --------- NONE
    
    Optimum Weapons - Waiting - These things die out after a little while.
    
                    - Mega Buster - This can kill a worm in about 3 hits, 
    so just tap the shoot button as fast as you can. Please note that you 
    cannot kill the dispensers if this weapon unless you are underneath 
    them.
    
                    - Metal Blades - This will kill the worms and the 
    dispenser in one hit. Fast and effective. 
    
                    - Bubble Lead - Same as the Metal blades, only for 
    ground level.
    
    Notes ----------- These guys are another source for item hunting. On 
    hard, I believe they have more hit points.
    
    Difficulty ------ ***
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    Name ------------ Air pushers
    Hit points ------ 3
    Found in -------- Air Man
    
    Appearance ------ These are blue robots with huge fans in them. They 
    look like Air Man in a way.
    
    Movement -------- They don't move, nor should you EVER touch them. 
    (Heavy)
    
    Attacks --------- Fan - All these things will do is push you back. Just 
    kill them so this doesn't happen. (None)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Three shots in one jump will do the 
    trick. You can also jump and shoot before they appear on screen to not 
    get pushed back a whole lot.
    
    Notes ----------- On Hard, they take about 5 hits to kill.
    
    Difficulty ------ *
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    Name ------------ Pea Shooters
    Hit points ------ 3
    Found in -------- Flash Man, Crash Man, Wily Stage 2, Wily Stage 3
    
    Appearance ------ These are little robots on two legs. One "arm" is a 
    gun, and the other one will crank the robot to a new angle.
    
    Movement -------- They can only move their arm up or down, otherwise 
    they stay still. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Shoot - This is all they can do... shoot just like 
    you, only theirs will arc. If they are blocking off a path for you to 
    go down, just wait till they crank it up. This will allow you to make 
    your move. They usually do it after 5 shots. (Light)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Three hits and they die, since they 
    don't move, nothing special as to be done.
    
                    - Air Shooter - This should be used right when you step 
    into Flash man's stage, since most of them are above you. One of these 
    will kill one if hit right.
    
    Notes ----------- On difficult, they take much more to kill.
    
    Difficulty ------ ***

    Name ------------ Mech Joe
    Hit points ------ 10
    Found in -------- Flash Man, Quick Man, Heat Man, Wily Stage 4
    
    Appearance ------ A red robot in a huge purple walker.
    
    Movement -------- This Robot will jump, and try and squish you. (Heavy)
    
    Attacks --------- Shoot - If the robot can't get to you, it will shoot 
    pretty dam fast. There is no real sure fire way to dodge all the 
    attacks, instead, you should just try and kill this Mech as fast as 
    possible. (Light)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - I would only use this is you KNOW it 
    can not get to you.
    
                    - Air Shooter - If hit right, you can destroy a Mech 
    Joe in ONE hit with this weapon. Good to know since these are very hard 
    enemies. Don't forget to still watch out for the shield.
    
                    - Wood Shield - On normal, a two hit kill.
    
    Notes ----------- Once you kill this enemy, a Guard Joe will pop out of 
    it. These enemies take a lot more to kill on Hard.
    
    Difficulty ------ **********
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    Name ------------ Guard Joe
    Hit points ------ 5
    Found in -------- Flash Man, Quick Man, Heat Man, Wily Stage 1, Wily 
    Stage 4
    
    Appearance ------ A red humanoid robot with a visor, he also has a 
    shield.
    
    Movement -------- He doesn't move. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Shoot - When he is not behind his shield, he will 
    shoot three times. To avoid these, do three little jumps. (Light)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - If you have good reaction timing, you 
    can start shooting right when he puts down his shield and kill him 
    right off.
    
                    - Air Shooter - Using this point black will kill this 
    little guy in one to two shots.
    
    Notes ----------- He is what pops out of a Mech Joe once you destroy 
    it, these can also be found alone as well. They are much harder on hard 
    since they take more to kill. Don't forget that you can't hit their 
    shield.

    Name ------------ Stack O' Cans
    Hit points ------ 1
    Found in -------- Flash Man, Metal Man, Crash Man
    
    Appearance ------ This is a robot that is made up of four cans. The 
    third one up has eyes!
    
    Movement -------- This will only move to the left. If will NEVER stop. 
    (Heavy)
    
    Attacks --------- Tumble - Please note that this attack is ONLY on 
    hard. Any ways, once you hit him for the first time, he will launch the 
    three non-eyed cans at you. These are hard to avoid, but if you stand 
    still about a step in front of him, you will usually avoid them. After 
    a little bit, he will put himself back together, then one more hit will

    will slide on the ground and speed up if you are on the same elevation 
    as them.
    
    Movement -------- They just go back and forth. The best thing to do is

    Movement -------- They don't move. (Heavy)
    
    Attacks --------- Fire Toss - They will throw fire balls at you... the 
    best way to avoid these is to jump before they toss, so it will go 
    high, then kill them when you land. (Light)

    appear underneath you. Once you take some time to look, then think 
    about where you can go from there. (Medium)

    Attacks --------- It will lift its helmet up and attack you with three 
    bullets, one goes strait, and the other two make a V towards you. 
    Either get close enough to jump the highest bullet or stand a little 
    back and low jump the middle one. (LIGHT)

    the helmet pop up G spot, then shoot before it pops up. If you are 
    lucky, you can kill it before it actually shoots out anything.

    Movement -------- They will drop from the sky, then jump and try and 
    press you. To avoid this, either walk under them or kill them before 
    they touch you. Remember, they will target wherever you are. (Medium)

    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Once they fall down from the sky their 
    first time, pump three bullets into them. If you can kill them then, 
    run!
    
                    - Air Shooter - One hit will kill them with this thing, 
    this is also a good idea since it curves up and can hit them in mid 
    air.
    
                    - Metal Blade - These will also kill them in one hit, 
    use this if you are about to get crushed since you can kill them in one

    will jump out and attack you. There is no good way to avoid these, but 
    who cares? They do one point of damage. (Light)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is good for the big frogs, but you 
    will have to wait for the little frogs to jump to hit them.
    
                    - Quick Boomerang - This is a decent way to sweep up 
    the little frogs, but will kill the Giant Frog very quickly.
     
                    - Metal Blades - These have about the same power as the

    blades will rip through the shrimp in one hit and kill the angler in 
    two.

    Notes ----------- Sometimes it might be a better idea to let these guys 
    hit you. This is because when they come, you are surrounded by 
    spikes... and if you suck at jumping, that 2 seconds of damage 
    invincibility will help you make it past that area.

                    - Metal Blade - Since these will come at you from above 
    usually right after a jump, shooting diagonal direction will usually

    ball trail from its mouth. To avoid it, either shoot and cover, or jump

    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Only use this if you don't have 
    anything else... better learn how to tap the shoot button quick.
    
                    - Atomic Fire - Charge this up to full, and you will

    this weapon just in case you use too much.
    
                    - Metal Blade - Takes only five hits to kill, so it's 
    faster than the Mega Buster is.
    
                    - Quick Boomerang - Faster than the Metal Blades, but 
    you must go closer.

    Appearance ------ He is a blue bodied robot with a fan built smack in 
    the middle. He has black and yellow limbs.
    
    Movement -------- He will stand still shooting air thingys out. After 
    three of them, he will jump across the room with two leaps; once 
    landing in the middle, then at the end. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Air Shooter - He will make a bunch of mini tornado 
    like blue wind spots on the screen, then they will fly towards you. Now 
    this attack is very hard to dodge... some times impossible I believe, 
    but all you have to do is usually light jump over an air. The thing 
    that makes it worse... it's all random. Any ways, if you have full 
    health, you can allow yourself to just walk toward him and shoot him. 
    You will kill him faster. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This is about the only weapon that you 
    can use at the max distance. Remember that if you hit one of his air 
    shooter, your hit will bounce off it. Any ways, after his third attack, 
    simply move to the far left... he will jump right in front of you, this 
    is you time to pump all you got into him. It takes 7 hits to kill him 
    and you can get at least 3 in if you are behind him.
    
                    - Leaf Shield - This weapon would devastate him if it 
    didn't bounce off his air shooters. So use the Mega Buster Until either 
    you are close to him where you can hit him with the shield without 
    shooting it or when he if jumping. This should take about 2-3 hits.
    
                    - Time Stopper - Use this if you have one hit and 
    desperately need to dodge one more attack. This will freeze his air and 
    let you jump through them a lot easier.
    
    Notes ----------- Disregard the "you can allow yourself to just walk 
    toward him and shoot him" strat if you are playing on Hard. If you are, 
    you have to dodge just a wee bit.

    Appearance ------ A white and blue robot... he's kind of short.
    
    Movement -------- He will follow Mega Man around and will usually jump 
    when you shoot. Taking advantage of this will allow him to jump right 
    over you. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Freeze - He will make a little gesture and then 
    freeze everything on the screen. Once he does, he will shoot a large 
    amount of bullets in a spray form that will most likely hit you. Now 
    unless you are in the air far enough or way under him, you will get 
    hit. Don't worry though, his shot takes off one pellet of energy, us 
    your damage state to run through him so you don't take any collision 
    damage. (Light)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Hit him only 7 times with this to kill 
    him. Nothing special, just try to hop up and down to hit him wherever 
    he is.
    
                    - Metal Blades - These are just a tad bit stronger than 
    your Mega buster and will hit him easier...
    
                    - Crash Bombs - These also do a little more damage to 
    him, but there is a little trick you can do. If you hit the side of a 
    wall or ledge, and he walks by this and freezes time... he can die in 
    pretty much one Crash Bomb. This takes a lot of luck to pull off.
    
                    - Bubble Lead - This can only help you hit him more 
    often if you can't target him that well. Since the first time you fight 
    him, he will jump up and down inclines, this can help you attack from 
    above safety.

    Appearance ------ A red robot with a yellow boomerang on its head.
    
    Movement -------- Quick Man can really move! He will run and jump 
    extremely high. He is also very hard to predict. To avoid him... stay 
    away from him. It is hard to jump over him because he will usually jump 
    when you jump, so it is a safe idea to just walk under him when he 
    jumps. He will usually start off with a jump, and sometimes will run 
    into the wall. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Quick Boomerang - He will throw three boomerangs out. 
    Now if they are still on the screen, they will pop back towards you. 
    The best way to dodge this is to just jump; he will usually throw them 
    at you from above. Remember to watch them if they come around a second 
    time. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - 7 hits will kill him, but he is hard to 
    hit since he jumps a lot. Use this if you have nothing else. Make sure 
    you ALWAYS jump and shoot, so he jumps into your bullets.
    
                    - Time Stopper - The best choice for a weapon... this 
    will freeze him and kill him a full pellet for every two that is used 
    up. If you have full energy with this weapon, this boss can be killed 
    half for free. Warning: If you have low life, don't use this unless he 
    is half dead, so you don't waste it for nothing.
    
                    - Air Shooter - I just like using this as it can hit 
    him while he is in the air better than your normal gun.
    
                    - Crash Bomb - This can do the same thing as what 
    happens to freeze man, since Quick man spends a lot of times running 
    into things in one place.
    
                    - Bubble Lead - Although this will bounce off of him, 
    it will also make him stop in his tracks and stand still on the ground. 
    If you do this, you have very little time to switch weapons to damage 
    him. This is funny actually.
    
                    - Metal Blade - This does the same thing as Bubble 
    Lead... only you can hit him in the air and it will allow you more time 
    to change weapons.
    
                    - Atomic Fire - This will do a good chunk of damage to 
    him, especially on normal. This may be hard to hit him with, but at 
    least you can focus on dodging while you charge it up.
    
    Notes ----------- On Hard, the Stopper still does %50 of his health. He 
    is the only strong Robot Master in my opinion.

    Name ------------ Metal Man
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Metal Man, Wily Stage 5
    
    Appearance ------ A ninja like looking robot... with a buzz saw blade 
    on his head.
    
    Movement -------- Metal Man will just walk in place, until you shoot. 
    Once you shoot, he will jump. If you shoot twice, he will likely jump 
    higher. Then if you get close, he will jump clear across the room. 
    Every time he jumps, he will attack. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Blade Toss - Every time Metal Man jumps, he will 
    throw blades. Now the hard part is this, he can throw up the three off 
    them, and he can do them in many different directions. The best way to 
    avoid them is to learn is patterns, there is way too many to list and I 
    doubt anyone would even understand them JUST from reading this... 
    (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This weapon takes 14 hits to kill him, 
    making him a durable boss. Just make sure you jump and shoot, because 
    you WILL miss him completely if you just stand as he will jump over 
    them.
    
                    - Quick Boomerang - This will just kill him "quicker." 
    It is strong than the normal Mega Buster, but you must get close to 
    him. You will most likely get hit a few times, but you will also deal 
    more damage to him.
    
                    - Metal Blade - Step 1: Go on Normal Difficulty. 
    Step 2: Get to the second last stage. Step 3: Hit Metal man once with 
    his own weapon. Step 4: Laugh.

    Name ------------ Crash Man
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Crash Man, Wily Stage 5
    
    Appearance ------ A robot with a visor with two drill like hands.
    
    Movement -------- He will just walk back and forth until you shoot. 
    Once you shoot, he will jump. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Once he is in the air, he will throw down a Crash 
    Bomb. Once it is in the ground for a little while, it will blow up. If 
    you want to learn how to avoid this, read below. Make sure you remember 
    to start this below pattern after his first jump, since he does that 
    any ways. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - You will have to hit him 14 times with 
    this weapon, but he is how to beat him without getting hit once. Did 
    you ever notice how he only jumps and attacks when you shoot? Well this 
    is the most important thing to know about. Now this is what you must 
    do---> Jump and shoot in front of him (not two close as you don't want 
    to bump into him). Now when you hit the ground he will probably be in 
    the air throwing a Crash bomb at you. Once this happens, either keep 
    walking in the same direction (if he is right above you and throwing 
    the bomb downward.) or jump if he throws the bomb at a angle. 
    
                    - Air Shooter - Once he jumps, hit him with this. You 
    can kill him with once launch if you hit him with two parts of it. Use 
    this if you can't grasp the concept of the above strategy.
    
                    - Bubble Lead - Use this if you like the first way 
    (with the Mega Buster) and want to hit him while higher so you don't 
    miss. You do have to be closer to him...
    
                    - Quick Boomerang - This will allow you to hit him 
    twice if you choose to use the first method again. Once on the way up, 
    and if you shoot about four times point blank in mid air, one should 
    arc back and peg him.

    Name ------------ Bubble Man
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Bubble Man
    
    Appearance ------ A green short Scuba diver.
    
    Movement -------- He will stay on the ground for a while. Once he is 
    done launching off his bubbles, he will then kick his legs into the air 
    at an angle, then he will just come back down to land. This is easy to 
    remember, trust me. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Bouncing Bubbles - When he is touching ground, he 
    will throw out one to three bubbles. The best way to avoid these is to 
    quickly see when they are going to touch the ground then stand just a 
    little bit in front of it. They will all follow the same path, so if 
    you dodge one, you can dodge them all. (Medium)
    
            --------- Water Gun - When ever Bubble Man is in the air or 
    when he is about to launch a bubble or right when he lifts off, he will 
    shoot out what looks like little air bubbles. Any ways, that only time 
    he isn't doing this attack is when you are under him or when bubbles 
    are just going out of him. To avoid these, you are probably going to 
    have to fall through them. Always remember to jump right when he hits 
    the ground or right when he lifts off. By the way, he only shoots when 
    you are in front of him. (Light)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just make sure you shoot him when you 
    can. When he is in mid air, only shoot him in the leg with a low jump 
    so you don't get pegged in your face with his water gun.
    
                    - Metal Blades - These will kill him in 4 shots, this 
    will also let you stand under him and attack him. Another good this is 
    that you don't have to risk jumping to attack him when he is air borne.
    
                    - Quick Boomerang - This is stronger than the Mega 
    Buster is but weaker than the blades. This weapon will allow you to hit 
    him while you are jumping in the air... but you must get close.
    
    Notes ----------- Using his own weapon on him will heal him.

    Appearance ------ He is a giant zippo... 
    
    Movement -------- Once you hit him, he will turn into fire and zoom 
    himself across the room. To avoid this, you must jump ALL THE WAY over 
    him, since he can reform right underneath you. (Heavy)
    
    Attacks --------- Fire Toss - He will throw three fire balls in the 
    air, once they touch the ground, they will make columns. Only the first 
    one is hard to avoid, but if you attack him fast enough, you'll only 
    see this attack once. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Just seven hits will due, and he is 
    dead.
    
                    - Bubble Lead - 3 of these will kill him, you shouldn't 
    have a problem.

    after you hit him twice with bubble.

    Name ------------ Wood Man
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Wood Man, Wily Stage 5
    
    Appearance ------ He looks like a giant brown tree trunk that will beat 
    his chest at times.
    
    Movement -------- Here will stand still with his shield up, once he 
    shoots it off, he will make a little jump towards you. Now once he 
    reaches the other side, he will just turn around. If you are trying 
    your hardest with ANYTHING but the Mega Buster on hard, you should 
    never let him come close to touching you. (Heavy)
    
    Attacks --------- Leaf Shield - This is one of the hardest things to 
    jump in this game. He will put a shield made of four leaves up and then 
    throw them at you. The ONLY way to avoid this is to make a BIG early 
    jump. This takes all skill. (Heavy)
    
            --------- Leaf Rain - Once his shield is up, four leaves will 
    fly above the screen and then fall. Now the part that is hard is that 
    they not only wave back and forth on their way down, but they also fall 
    right when the shield is being flung at you... They best way to avoid 
    this is to stand in the far corner of the room. You will get hit if you 
    just stand there, so just jump strait up at the right time (when it 
    sways to the right). Once you land that, you should be ready to jump 
    the shield that is on its way... If you move forward and jump, you will 
    now be close to him and be able to do many things... (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - If you are using this, make sure you 
    know how to dodge his many leaves the right way. If you are on normal 
    and have full life, you can literally just sit and take one hit every 
    time he shoots off stuff and takes off his shield. He is pretty hard to 
    kill with this weapon on Hard... It takes 14 hits on normal by the way.
    
                    - Crash Bomb - First off, this will go though his 
    shield and deal him damage. Use this if you are far away and feel like 
    getting a free 4 damage on him. Another thing you can do is shoot the 
    bomb off just a little before he shoots his shield. If you hit his 
    shield right in front of him, it will start to explode... now if he 
    jumps into that, you will hit him about two times extra.
    
                    - Air Shooter - This will kill him pretty fast and can 
    even hit him twice with one shot. Want to know the best part? You can 
    also hit him while he is in his shield! You must go really close.
    
                    - Metal Blade - This will do about the same damage as 
    the crash bomb, put will allow you to use it more. Use this if you want 
    to hit him from afar and without the Atomic Fire...
    
                    - Atomic Fire - On normal, this will kill him in ONE 
    FREAKING HIT!  But you must charge this up till there is weird noise 
    and you turn a greenish color. On hard it takes two hits...
    
    Notes ----------- IF you are going to get hit, jump into the falling 
    leaves... they hurt less.

    Appearance ------ A green dragon... you'll know when you see him.
    
    Movement -------- At the end of the first "castle" level you will be 
    chased by this dragon. You'll know when the screen starts getting 
    slower while you jump on white squares. Make sure you stay ahead and 
    jump fast. When you actually fight him, he will move up and down pretty 
    fast, by this time, we won't ever touch you unless you jump into him. 
    Oh, and he hurts if you do. (FATAL)
    
    Attacks --------- Fire - It will breath fire at you... now here is the 
    thing that will get you... not only does it do a little bit of damage, 
    put you fight him on the smallest freaking area! Take a look...

    That's all you get is three little blocks! Now you should stand on the 
    tip of the top block, so when you get hit, you will most likely fall on 
    to the second block. The reason this is so hard is because it is on the 
    NES and the game slows down a real lot. You might notice fire going 
    through you and falling backwards a little too much. Otherwise this 
    attack isn't that bad in damage which is good since it is near 
    impossible to dodge. (Medium)
                                                   
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - Use this if you have balls to take a 
    long fight or don't have balls to go close with quick. Make sure you 
    hit him in the head.
    
                    - Quick Boomerang - This will do twice as much damage 
    your mega buster and will hit him at a lower spot since quick arcs 
    down. He has very low invincibility frames, so with this weapon, you 
    will mop him up really quick! 
    
                    - Atomic Heat - On normal this will kill him half 
    life... use this once a fight... charge up while you are about to fight 
    him for a free big hit!
    
    Notes ----------- This boss is one of the very few annoying ones in the 
    series... make sure you don't touch him and if you get hit, DO NOT 
    PRESS FORWARD UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING! If you think you are 
    going to get hit, just stand there and let him knock you down to the 
    second platform.

    make them look like they have wings...
    
    Movement -------- Once they form, two ends of the cube will come 
    together in their midpoint. To avoid them, first stay were the middle 
    is... then all you'll have to do is jump the very few low one. Watch 
    out though, once you kill one, the next one will start the next 
    instant. (Heavy)

    Optimum Weapons - Bubble Lead - Although you have to go close to them, 
    this will kill them in one hit. The best way to use this on them is to 
    jump high before them and let the bubble drop on them.
    
                    - Metal Blade - This has the same power has the Mega

    Appearance ------ Remember guts man from the first Mega Man? Well 
    imagine him with treads.
    
    Movement -------- Once he comes out, he will move forward, then back 
    once he touches the end. Don't worry, you can stand on the front part 
    of him. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- Plasma Ball - If you stand on him, he will usually 
    shoot a bullet at you. This arcs up but isn't that hard to dodge. It 
    will only do little damage. (Light)
    
            --------- Met - You remember those Mets that hide under their 
    helmets? Well now they will pop out of his stomach... If you stay on 
    the ground, they will pop out of him and bounce a bit. Just either 
    stand next to him so they hop over you or learn how to easily jump over 
    them. You can also destroy them. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This will kill him in 14 shoots, but 
    only use this if you have trouble avoiding the mets, since this will 
    also kill them with ease. Make sure you aim for the eyes!
    
                    - Atomic Heat - Use this once a fight, before he 
    actually comes into the screen. This will take a big chunk off his 
    life.

    Movement -------- They don't move. (Medium)
    
    Attacks --------- High Speed Plasma - All they can do is shoot at you. 
    But this is beyond one of the fastest things in the game. Once you see 
    their spinning purple thing stop spinning and create a large purplish 
    area, they will shoot. The only really way to dodge this is to know 
    where to jump... which is very hard to do. But you can cheese this by 
    repeatedly pausing the game. This will make Mega Man undamagable and 
    the shoots will pass right though you. (Medium)

    Start by using Item 1 to get up to the first orb. Hit it with a crash 
    bomb. Then fall down to MID and kill the second one. Now just chill on 
    the MID and blow up the wall and them orb 3. Now jump all the way in 
    front of #4 and kill it, you will need to use Item 1 or Item 3 to get 
    out of there. Now just wait and kill orb 5 with the wall in front of 
    it.
    
    If you want to try and beat this level with one crash bomb left over, 
    shoot one next to the "X" This is hard to do, but it will destroy the 
    first orb and the wall at the same time. By the way, C and a number 
    will tell you where to place your bombs in order.

    Found in -------- Wily Stage 5
    
    Appearance ------ A weird looking flying saucer type machine. This 
    looks almost the same as the original Dr. Wily.
    
    Movement -------- Back and forth... but not enough to crush you... but 
    it will be enough to make his Plasma fire variable. If you got this 
    far, you shouldn't touch him. (EXTREME)
    
    Attacks --------- Upward Curving Plasma - The same crap as in the 
    original, only this one will change its primary arc onto where you are. 
    When he is really close to you, jump almost strait up or else you will 
    jump into him! When he is far away, simply just jump over it. (Heavy)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - This will damage him fast, and he has 
    no invincibility frames. ONLY shoot him twice and ONLY when you are 
    already jumping one of his attacks. If you do this, you will be able to 
    beat him with ease. 
    
                    - Atomic Heat - One charge up shoot will kill his first 
    form out right. I didn't test this on Hard, but I'm sure it will just 
    half his health...
    
                    - Metal Blade - This will do the same damage as the 
    your Mega Buster, only it can hit him three times per single jump. 
    There is only one thing to remember, NEVER shoot him while on the 
    ground. Sure you can kill him fast, but this is sloppy and will get you 
    hit since you are stationary.
    
                    - Crash Bomb - If you died and continued or saved one 
    extra crash bomb from the orb fight, you can kill him in one well 
    placed hit. If you hit him just under the orb, it will keep on 
    exploding and will hit him if he travels through it. 
    
    Notes ----------- If you want a quick way to kill him, use your heat on 
    him, since it doesn't work on the second form. You should save all your 
    Crash Bombs for the second form.

    Name ------------ Dr. Wily (Revealed Space Ship)
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Wily Stage 5
    
    Appearance ------ A weird looking flying saucer type machine. This 
    looks almost the same as the original Dr. Wily. It will even still show 
    him!
    
    Movement -------- Back and forth... but not enough to crush you... but 
    it will be enough to make his Plasma fire variable. If you got this 
    far, you shouldn't touch him. (EXTREME)
    
    Attacks --------- Bouncing Plasma - If you played Bubble Man, you 
    should know what this look likes. Only one thing is different... you 
    can't just stand somewhere and avoid all the attacks. You actually have 
    to move through it. This is VERY hard to avoid, especially with all the 
    lag involved. But... there is another way to make it through these 
    attacks. You can also jump over them. This is made very well apparent 
    if you use Air Shooter. (Heavy)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Mega Buster - If you didn't get hit the first time 
    you played him, you can damage race him this time and win. Since this 
    time you can hit him three times in mid air.
    
                    - Air Shooter - This has the same power as the Mega 
    Buster, but it can hit three times in one shoot. This is risky since 
    you need to be closer, and if you miss with just one, you will have to 
    wait until all your shoots leave the screen.
    
                    - Quick Boomerang - This does the same thing as the 
    Mega Buster, but will shoot so much faster and will probably allow you 
    to hit him at least one more time per jump.
    
                    - Metal Blades - Same as the first fight, only if you 
    are getting hit, just aim up so your efforts aren't wasted.
    
                    - Crash Bomb - If you died and continued or saved one 
    extra crash bomb from the orb fight and the first Dr. Wily fight, you 
    can kill him in one well placed hit. If you hit him just under the cock 
    pit, it will keep on exploding and will hit him if he travels through 
    it.
    
    Notes ----------- Forget damage racing on Difficult, since you probably 
    will not win. If you can't get the gist of dodging his attacks, you 
    better have an energy tank or some Crash Bombs. There is now point 
    saving your E tanks after this level, as the next level is cake as 
    hell.

    Name ------------ Alien Hologram 
    Hit points ------ 28
    Found in -------- Wily Stage 6
    
    Appearance ------ A green Alien, with red eyes.
    
    Movement -------- This being will move around in a figure eight 
    pattern... NEVER EVER JUMP INTO HIM. If you look at him for just 5 
    second, you'll see everything you need to see. (EXTREME)
    
    Attacks --------- Plasma - This looks just a little bigger than your 
    Mega Buster does. He will only shoot it at certain times, always in the 
    same intervals. You can dodge this just by jumping over it when you are 
    low, or walking if it is high. NEVER EVER walk directly under him when 
    he is about to cross the middle of the figure eight... he will usually 
    always peg you with a hit. (Medium)
    
    Optimum Weapons - Bubble Lead - This is the ONLY thing that can kill 
    him. The best way to hit him is to jump right before he is up curving 
    and pelt him with a few. Remember you can hit him with more than one 
    Bubble each jump. Make sure you play it safe, because he can hurt you a 
    lot more if he hits you.
    
    Notes ----------- Every other weapon will heal him to full. Don't 
    believe me? Try it! Even your Mega Buster and Flash Stopper will heal 
    him.
