          INTRODUCTION
    o---------------------o
    
    The fifth game of this series. This game introduces Megaman's pet bird, Beat.
    To get Beat, you must collect all the letters that spell MEGAMANV located one
    at a time in each different boss stage. If you are playing the Japanese version
    of the game then you are collecting the letters that spell out ROCKMAN5 instead
    since he is called Rockman in Japan.

    o---------------------o
         BOSSES - MM5
    o---------------------o
    
    Gravityman (033)
    ----------
    Gravityman can be tricky. You two can never stay on the same level, whenever
    you are on the ceiling, he's on the floor and vise versa. He will jump around
    and shoot normal bullets. The best weapon to use is the Star Shield.
    
    Waveman (034)
    -------
    This guy likes to use sneak attacks. He likes to hop at you and sometimes he'll
    throw a spear at you. But the sneak attack he uses is sticking his arm into the
    ground and making a geyser come up in a random spot. Use the Charge Kick to do
    away with him.
    
    Stoneman (035)
    --------
    Try to hang in there as much as you can against Stoneman, he jumps around and
    turns into rubble a lot. He is invincible in rubble form. He will also use an
    attack called the Power Stone that rotates around the room and gradually spreads
    Napalm Bombs are your best weapons against him.
    
    Gyroman (036)
    -------
    Man does this guy stay in the air a lot. When he's on the ground, he'll shoot
    normal bullets but on the ground or in the air, he will send a Gyro Blade at
    you. But what do we have here? Ah! The Gravity Hold! What does this thing do?
    OMFG! No matter where Gyroman is, he always gets hit by it and there is nothing
    he can do about.
    
    Starman (037)
    -------
    Starman has a simple pattern: activate his Star Crash and hop around and shoot
    his shield at you. Starman thinks he is safe but Waveman says "no way" Not only
    does Water Waves damage Starman but they can cancel out his shield too.
    
    Chargeman (038)
    ---------
    CHIGGA-CHIGGA-CHIGGA-CHIGGA-CHOO-CHOO! This guy looks like a train engine with
    legs. That must explain why he makes the CHOO-CHOO sound when he send fireballs
    to rain down on you. His other attack is when tries to charge into you.  Power
    Stones will put this "little engine that couldn't" out of his misery.
    
    Napalmman (039)
    ---------
    He fires three missiles in succession then throws a lot of napalms around that
    have an explosion of an inch radius. The Crystal Eye is a good choice to beat
    him with.
    
    Crystalman (040)
    ----------
    He moves quickly. His Crystal Eye breaks when it hits the wall and then bounces
    around the surfaces for a little while. With Gyroman, take Crystalman and shine
    him on real nicely, avoid his Crystal Eye attacks and stick Gyro Attacks up his
    candy ass.
    
    Darkman I
    ---------
    He'll just move around trying to charge into you. He is just a waste of space.
    Use Water Waves on him.
    
    Darkman II
    ----------
    Another Waste of space, he just walks around trying to touch you with his
    barriers. Crystal Eyes will be his downfall.
    
    Darkman III
    -----------
    Now this guy is tough. I guarantee that you might not beat him the first time
    unless you're good enough. He'll leap in the air and rain bullets on you and
    he'll also freeze you and make you turn white. Gyro Attacks are you're best
    weapon
    
    Darkman IV
    ----------
    This is the fake Protoman before the real one shows up and exposes him. This
    guy is similar to the Darkman II and III except he won't freeze you but shoot
    bullets while standing and he'll toss his barriers at you too. You're newest
    friend Beat will take him out.
    
    Big Pets
    --------
    Shoot its segments to ride on them then hit it in the head with Crystal Eyes.
    Watch out for the raining enemies coming down.
    
    Circling Q9
    -----------
    It will fly back and forth in a shaky pattern. It will then swoop
    down-left, come back up, and swoop down right and return then repeat its
    pattern.
    Watch out for the meteors coming from above too. Gyro Attack will due it in.
    
    Dr. Wily Machine 5 Phase 1 and 2
    --------------------------------
    
    Phase 1: He'll move back and forth trying to get over you then comes down and
    brings the platform up too. Watch for the spikes in the middle and Mega Bust
    him when in range.
    
    
    Phase 2: He'll send a lot of missiles and balls at you. Just avoid them and
    Mega Bust his Mouth
    
    Dr. Wily Capsule
    ----------------
    He'll appear in one spot and drop a ball that goes in two directions and
    then vanishes and sends a big circle of balls that disappear in the spot he was
    in. When he's low enough to hit, use the Mega Buster

    ===============================================================================
    
                                      Waveman
                               Weakness: Charge Kick
                                Get: Water Wave
    
    Enemies: Octoper OA, Iron Balln, Cog, Rider Joe, V, Irukarn, Twin Cannon.
    
    Head right and watch out for the steam and the Iron Balln. You can jump through
    the chain part of the Iron Balln. When you see two tubes, jump into the top one
    to get the 1-up and drop to the left. Head right and watch out for the Cogs and
    steam. At the end, take the 4th set of bubbles. These are the big bubbles you
    can ride on. Ride up one screen and when you are high enough, quickly hop across
    two little bubbles to the other big bubble on the left. Ride up one screen and
    when a little bubble shows up, slide onto the bubble then jump to the platform
    and head right. You are now outside. Run right and you'll automatically jump
    onto a jet ski.
    
    Watch out for the Vs and Rider Joes. Be also aware of the Rider Joes coming
    from behind. There are some Irukarns to deal with as well. When the background
    goes dark, you face an Octoper OA. Aim your shots at the green spot on its
    forehead and watch out for its shots as well. When you beat it, head right and
    dodge more Irukarns n' Rider Joes coming from the rear. When you see 2 Irukarns
    following each other, get ready to get the E/O behind them. Make sure you don't
    get hit or you'll be too stunned to get it. At the end of the ride, you'll shoot
    one Twin Cannon dead with a Mega Buster Shot and face Waveman next.
    
    Charge up a shot before you face him. Let go when he fills his energy and the
    shot will already let loose and hit him. He'll do his Geyser attack, then shoot
    a spear and jump at you. Always stay close enough to avoid his jumps but far
    enough to avoid the spear. When he lands, jump or the geyser might get you.
    Just hang in there and victory is yours. If Waveman was not your first robot
    then Charge Kicks will work on him.

                                      Starman
                               Weakness: Water Wave
                                 Get: Star Crash
    
    Enemies: Dachon, Asteroid, Bounder, Space Metall, B Bitter, Jet Bomb, Tondeall,
             Mizzile, Toss Machine
    
    Seeing how we're in out of space, there is moon gravity in this stage. The
    height of your jumps depends on how long you hold the B button. Move right and
    watch out for the asteroids raining down, you will drop down to safety. Kill
    the Bounder and drop to the lower level and move right and kill the Bounder and
    B Bitters in the way. Watch out for the spikes above. Drop down and kill the
    Tondealls and drop down. Slide right and then jump up carefully to get the M
    and not touch the spikes. Take out the Space Metalls and jump carefully between
    the floor and ceiling spikes and kill another Space Metall and a B Bitter at
    the end.
    
    Climb the ladder, kill the B Bitters first with the Mega Buster and carefully
    jump across the platforms and when you get to the next screen. Shoot the Dachon
    in the eye to kill it and watch out for its lasers. Run right n' kill the Space
    Metalls and you'll come across a screen where the floor rises up and down. As
    you jump, watch out for the Mizziles that try to stunt your jump. There are
    also Toss Machines that launch bullets at you. At the end, kill the Dachon and
    enter the gate.
    
    Just stay on the ground when you fight Starman. He will jump around while he is
    shooting his shield at you. But with the Water Wave, he's dead. The Water Waves
    can go through his shield and hit him or destroy the shield itself if he was in
    the air. Poor Starman never had a chance.

                                    Gravityman

    Enemies: Suzy G, B Bitter, Graviton, Pukaperry, Power Massler, Iron Balln,
             Nobeeta
    
    This stage changes gravity from time to time. One moment you are on the floor
    then you are on the ceiling. When you are on the ceiling, the controls stay the
    same except for the slide and Charge Kick for that matter. Hold Up and press A
    to slide. Move right and kill the Suzy Gs and the Graviton and drop down. Move
    left and change gravity and kill the Suzy G and the Nobeeta and keep moving
    to change gravity again. Move right and kill the Nobeeta and Suzy G and you're
    back on the ceiling. Jump to the ladder while upside down and climb to the 1-up
    and kill the Nobeeta if you need to. Drop up, avoid the Iron Balln and keep
    dropping up.
    
    Make it to the upper level and kill the enemies in the way and move right. At
    the end, kill the Nobeeta and change gravity to end up on the floor and drop
    down. Be sure to stay to the right or you'll land on the spikes on the left.
    Kill the B Bitters as you move right, drop, and kill more B Bitters and a Power
    Massler. On the next screen, kill the Graviton and the Suzy G and end up
    on the ceiling. Jump n' fall and quickly change gravity to get the M/R and keep
    moving right. You'll change gravity and climb up a ladder, avoid the two
    Pukaperries and drop up and avoid the spikes. Drop to the floor and kill the
    B Bitter and enter the gate. On the way, you'll be back on the ceiling.
    
    Shoot the Star Crush at the beginning and Gravityman will end up hitting it on
    the way up. Stay as far away as you can and time your shots to hit him as he
    changes gravity. He will be down soon.

    Take the upper path and climb the ladder. Move right and watch out for the
    Kouker Qs. Move across the falling floor quickly. Be sure to get the A/K very
    carefully by jumping off the moment the block drops. Make it all the way right
    and the floor will start rising. You have to maneuver through the spikes above
    so be careful. At the top, move right and kill the Tondealls. Drop down and
    kill the Twin Cannon and get ready to fight (more like rape) Gyroman.
    
    The Gravity Hold hits him no matter where he is so with all that said....
    Gyroman: Officer. WAHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Megaman raped me!

    and drop down. Wait for the Bombyas to pass and get the E-Tank.
    
    Drop down 2 screens and move right and Rush Coil to the upper platform and kill
    the Mousuberu and get the M-Tank. Keep moving and drop down and stay still one
    screen and steer left on the next to get the V/5. Drop to the lower level and
    kill the Suberus and keep dropping and say on the ledge to take care of the
    Power Massler and head for the gate.
    
    Crystalman sends 4 Crystal Eyes at you and hops around shooting normal shots
    too. Hit him with 7 Gyro Attacks to get rid of him.

                               Weakness: Crystal Eye
                                Get: Napalm Bomb
    
    Enemies: Apache Joe, Bomb Thrower, Jet Bomb, Metall Houdai, Mizzile, Power
             Massler, Rolling Drill, Sumatoran, Turban, Yudon
    
    Move right and kill the Sumatorans as you go. Drop down, kill another Sumatoran
    and get the energy-up before dropping down. Kill the Metall Houdai and Turbans
    and move right. You got to kill each Rolling Drill you come across because they
    will instantly kill you. Climb up, hold left and hop through the wall to get
    the E-Tank. Head back out and go right and kill the Apache Joes and climb the
    ladder and get what Eddie has for you and continue up. Kill all of the Yudons
    by shooting them in the head then as you fall, hold left and get the N and drop
    down two screens and head right. Shoot one missile and slide under the next and
    get ready to shoot at two more missiles before you jump.
    
    Kill the Power Massler and continue past the missile and drop down. Use a slide
    to safely avoid the spikes and drop down. Kill the Bomb Throwers and watch out
    for the Mizziles as you make your way to the gate.
    
    Avoid Napalmman's missile fire and the bombs he tosses into the air. Crystal
    Eyes kills him faster than any other weapon. Sometimes you'll miss and the
    Crystal Eye will split in 3 and he'll take damage for each piece that hits him
    as if the whole big Eye hit him.

                                Get: Power Stone
    
    Enemies: Hirarian 427, Lyric, Metall Mommy, Mousuberu, Rock Thrower, Turban,
             Suberu, Tatebakkan, Daidains
    
    Head right and take out the Metall Mommies as they turn into three tiny Metalls
    which you have to kill individually then climb up the ladder. Kill the Turbans
    and the Metall.  Next, kill the Suberu below and shoot at the wall to destroy
    to fake blocks. Slide right and get the G/C and slide back out. Shoot the
    Suberus then before you climb the ladder, kill the Metall Mommy. Climb up and
    kill another Metall and Turban then go right and kill more Turbans as well as
    Rock Throwers and climb the ladder. Watch out for the Hirarian 427s and more
    Turbans and Mousuberus. Climb up, take out the Hirarian 427 and climb the
    ladder.
    
    Now run right and take out the Lyrics and Tatebakkans and climb the ladder. To
    get the 1-up, use the Rush Coil and hold left at the top and make your way to
    it. Now get out and head right, take the Daidains to the high platform and kill
    the Lyrics, then take the 3 Daidains to the ladder. To get the E-Tank, shoot a
    Super Arrow to the left and ride it to the E-Tank. Now go back to the ladder by
    and  head right to make the Daidains reappear and climb up. Get Eddie's item
    and there is another false wall to shoot and slide through to the right.
    You get an energy-up and weapon up. Slide back out and climb the ladder. Kill
    the Metall Mommies and Lyrics and get ready to fight Stoneman.
    
    Stoneman stars with the Power Stone then jumps around. Sometimes he will turn
    to rubble and be invincible. Time your Napalm Bombs to hit him as he lands for
    best results.

    Enemies: Bomb Thrower, Cocco, Walking Egg, Lyric, Metal K1000, Mousuberu, Yudon
             Renbakun, Turban
    
    Kill all the Renbakuns in your path to the ladder and climb up. Head right
    and time your shots to kill the Metall K1000s when they open their helmets and
    shoot. You'll face some Lyrics too. When you drop, you'll end up in the cargo
    area. Keep moving right and move through swarms of Coccos, Turbans and the
    Mousuberus and get the A on the way to the ladder. Run right and take out
    the Metall K1000 and Bomb Throwers and drop down. Kill the Yudon and prepare
    for a tough fight with Chargeman.
    
    Chargeman will charge a lot and send fireballs into the air and rain them down.
    It's tough to hit Chargeman with Power Stones (though he is weak against them)
    but the best way to hit him is to stay close or fire when you jump over him
    when he is walking and not charging. 7 hits is all you need.
    
    Congratulations! Not only do you have all 8 weapons as well as the Super Arrow
    and Rush Jet but now you have Beat the bird fighting alongside you. He will
    attack every enemy in sight and he will be useful for the boss fights to come.

    Enemies: Hirarian 427, Sumatoran, Tondeall, Cog, Rounder, Dachon,
    
    On the way to the ladder, you'll be shooting through Sumatorans and Tondeall.
    It's a tough journey but you'll make it. Climb up and avoid the Cog and the
    Hirarian 427 and Rush Coil to the ladder and climb it. Run right and avoid all
    enemies or kill them and take the Rush Jet over the spikes and on the platform.
    Use a Super Arrow to attach to the wall and jump on it and over the wall and
    continue on. Drop down two screens and kill all enemies in the way and head
    right and kill the Dachon and climb up the ladder. Now the reappearing and
    disappearing blocks make their long awaiting appearance. The first pit is easy.
    
    Hop across 3 blocks, wait then hop to the next block on the left and climb up
    the ladder. The next pit is even easier and yes we'll cheat here. Wait for the
    next close block that you can jump on to appear then jump right then jump left
    and all done in 3 blocks. Climb up and slide right and watch out for all the
    'Rounders circling you. Kill one and they will leave you alone. The first boss
    awaits you.
    
    Use Water Waves on this guy. They not only cancel his bullets but damage him in
    the process too. Easy battle no doubt.

    Tondeall, Sumatoran, Pukaperry, Metall K1000, Graviton
    
    Avoid the Cogs and climb the ladder on the left since the right one is a dead
    end. Kill the Tatebakkan and Pukaperries and climb up the ladder. Rush Coil to
    the platform ahead and kill the Pukaperries ad Metal K1000 and drop down.
    You'll come across two treadmills and Cog scaling them. Avoid the Cogs and make
    it to the left and climb down the ladder. Jump across the treadmills quickly
    and avoid the Bombyas. Climb the ladder and take out 3 Crystal Joes by staying
    on the ladder with Megaman stooped over and fire when he shoots his crystal.
    
    Climb the ladder and kill the Graviton and Tondealls down the lower path to
    get the E-Tank and slide back quickly to avoid the spikes and do the same for
    the net path up and the energy-up. Slide down the top narrow passageway to
    safely drop down. Use the Rush Jet to get the 1-up then drop down. Kill the
    Bounders and climb up the ladder. Kill the Metall Houdais and continue climbing
    and Use Gravity Hold on the Pukaperries then wait for the Sumatoran to jump
    away and blast him with a Mega Buster shot. Keep moving through the Pukaperries
    and Sumatorans till you reach the gate.
    
    The second boss is vulnerable to Crystal Eyes. All he does is run at you and
    nothing more so he should be no problem if you remember to jump over him.

    Power Massler catches up to you then jump for it. Make it to the ladder, climb
    up, kill the Power Massler and get the E-Tank. Climb up the ladder and move
    through the snake and avoid the Kouker Qs till you get to the gate at the end.
    
    This boss tends to jump at you and shoot you. He also attempts to freeze you
    with some diamond shaped bullets so steer clear of those. Use Gyro Attacks to
    take him out.

    Enemies: None
    
    This level is too easy. Just clear enough blocks without getting killed by the
    spikes as the level drops. At the end, just head through the gate to take on
    Protoman. Say it ain't so, Pro! Protoman will shoot you and a whistle will
    sound. Protoman and Megaman look back and forth as if confused. The real
    Protoman appears and Megaman is still looking between the two all confused. The
    bottom Protoman fires at the one on the top who fires back and reveals the evil
    Protoman to be a fake. Whew! Thank goodies for that, Protoman will destroy the
    platform he was on and leave you an L-Tank that refills all your energy. Now get
    ready to fight Darkman IV.
    
    This boss is similar to the 2nd Protoman boss. The only difference is that he
    tosses his barrier at you and retracts it. Now is the time to break out Beat.
    Good luck on this fight. All you got to do is avoid the bullets and the barrier
    and Beat will do all the work for you. When it is all over, our old enemy Dr.
    Wily shows up and reveals that his plan to frame Protoman for his crimes have
    failed when the real Protoman showed up. He then tells you about Dr. Light and
    that he is held hostage at his castle and dares you to come get him then laughs
    and flees.

    Kill the B Bitters and Turbans and climb up.  Run right and kill the Toss
    Machines and low jump and run through the treadmills till you climb up the
    ladder. Kill the Pukaperries with Gravity Hold and Rush Coil up the ladder.
    Move right through the mini-treadmils and avoid the Cogs and watch out for the
    ceiling because it rises up and down and there are spots similar to Dustman's
    stage where you must shoot away blocks to proceed. Kill any Metall Cannons in
    the way and at the end, kill the Cocco and climb up the ladder. Kill all the
    B Bitters and Turbans, climb up the ladder and run right and kill the enemies
    and enter the gate.
    
    Big Pets is weak against Crystal Eyes. Shoot a normal shot at both platforms to
    use them as stepping stones then hit the boss in the head with Crystal Eye.
    Watch out for the enemies swerving down. Continue till it is dead.

    right, kill the Cocco and climb the ladder. Kill the Power Massler by shooting
    him as much as you can then finish him with the Star Crush. Climb up and do the
    same with the next Power Massler or avoid him and enter the gate. Against this

    After you have killed them all, enter the top center capsule to fight Dr. Wily.
    Avoid the spikes in the middle and charge up your Mega Buster. When he shows his
    face, be prepared to avoid being flattened as he comes down and makes the floor
    rise too. After 10 Mega Buster Shots, you win for now. Dr. Wily is getting away.
    Go get him, Megaman.

    Kill the Dachon, drop and kill the Twin Cannon and drop, kill the Dachon and it
    is time to face Wily again for the last time until Megaman 6. Avoid his
    missiles and balls and rely on the good on Mega Buster for the job. After you
    beat that part, he will appear in a rocketship and reappear and disappear a lot.
    When he reappears in a random he will drop a ball that splits in two directions
    then when he disappears, he will send circling energy balls that gradually
    squeeze in and disappear then he repeats the pattern. Wait for him to reappear
    with range then blast him with the Mega Buster. When you win, Wily will run as
    you give chase. When Wily stops under Dr. Light's cage, he will feign surrender
    and Megaman grabs Dr. Light. The base will begin to crumble and Wily begins to
    panic. The ceiling falls but Megaman catches it and Dr. Wily gets away. Just
    then
    Protoman destroys the section of the wall needed for Megaman and Dr. Light to
    get away and now just enjoy the ending.
