    -----------------------------------About Me-----------------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    I have played Mega Man since literally the day I can remember. The first Mega
    Man game I can remember playing is Mega Man 2 on the NES. The first Robot
    Master I can remember fighting is Wood Man, which makes him one of my favorite
    Robot Masters. Mega Man has always been my favorite video game icon since I
    was a kid. I own every American released Classic Mega Man and Mega Man X game.
    I don't really play the other series' though.

    --------------------------------About This FAQ--------------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    I decided to write this FAQ for anyone who hasn't been into Mega Man for very
    long and wants to better themselfs at fighting the Robot Masters with only the
    Mega Buster. I decided to include some videos of me fighting the Robot Masters
    just incase you can't understand what I am saying in this FAQ, you will have a
    visual example to go off of. I hope this guide helps you!
    
    I have covered all the Robot Master Battles from Mega Man's 1 - 10, Mega Man &
    Bass. The Stardroids from Mega Man V, the Mega Man Killers, the Doc Robots
    from Mega Man 3, and Bonus Battles against Mega Man Himself, Dark Man, and
    Fake Man I hope this guide helps you out! If you don't understand what I am
    saying in this FAQ, then follow the links after each Robot Master description
    to see a video of me personally taking out the Robot Masters, hopefully a
    visual example will help! If you like what you see then Subscribe to me on
    youtube, my username on there is Redmage1987. If you need help on any of the

    ==============================================================================
    ----------------------------------MEGA MAN 2----------------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    In Mega Man 2, we have our first set of 8 Robot Masters to deal with. Mega Man
    2 was the first Mega Man to begin the tradition of fighting 8 Robot's in each
    game. Here we will cover all 8. These are all written assuming you are Mega
    Buster Dueling them on Difficult. Either way though, the same strategy's
    should work on Normal as well.
    
    ------Bubble Man------
    
    Difficulty: 5/10
    
    Bubble Lead-- 4
    Buster Shot-- 2
    Collision---- 4
    
    Bubble Man himself isn't so hard to Buster only fight. More than anything you
    will have a lot of stuff to watch out for, His Bubble Lead attack which he
    will launch 2 - 3 Bubbles that bounce along the ground, you can easily run
    under them. His Shots from his Arm Cannon as well, avoiding collision damage
    and not hitting the spikes in the ceiling make for a lot of obstacles. However
    Mega Man can tank most of the hits and keep on moving, now this doesn't mean
    to not dodge at all, so try your best to dodge all the attacks he throws at
    you. Bascially as I said, to get around Bubble Lead just try to run under them
    His shots it depends on where he is at, if he is swimming up high run under
    them, if he is down low, try to jump over the shots and him as well if
    possible. Don't jump too high though, otherwise you will be one hit killed by
    the spikes. If he is still shooting while you are falling back to the ground
    try to go between the shots, once you are between 2 of them, hold the
    direction the shots are being fired to kind of move with them.

    Bubble Man's Fight is from 3:34 - 4:31
    
    
    ------Air Man------
    
    Difficulty: 4/10
    
    Air Shooter-- 4
    Collision---- 8
    
    Air Man isn't anything too much to worry about really, it's all a matter of
    what pattern of Tornados he throws at you. He also goes down quick because he
    takes 2 damage per shot. Basically he will shoot 2 to 3 rounds of tornado's at
    you, all of which will blow you away from him. At the beginning of the fight,
    just stay against the wall and do you best to jump over the tornado's safely
    and try to shoot between the tornados to hit him in the mean time. He will
    jump over to your side, just stay against the wall and let loose on him while
    he prepares another set of tornados and use the boost from the wind to jump
    over him and stay against the right wall and repeate When he jumps over to
    your side again.

    Air Man's Fight is from 4:32 - 5:02
    
    
    ------Quick Man------
    
    Difficulty: 7/10
    
    Quick Boomerang-- 4
    Collision-------- 4
    
    Quick Man is the Fastest of all the Robot Master's in Mega Man 2 and one of
    the fastest ones in the classic series. He takes 2 damage per shot, but
    hitting him is the key. When the fight starts he will either jump to where
    you're standing or jump somewhere around the middle of the room, basically you
    will want to try and stay somewhere in the middle of the room and jump over or
    run under him when you have the chance, when he throws his Quick Boomerangs
    dodge them and wait a sec then try and move or jump over them, so you have to
    manipulate the Boomerangs a little bit, do your best to hit Quick Man and when
    he gets stuck on a wall unload on him from the other side of it.

    Quick Man's Fight is from 5:03 - 5:26
    
    
    ------Wood Man------
    
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Leaf Shield---- 8
    Falling Leafs-- 4
    Collision------ 8
    
    Wood Man is one of the easier ones to buster only in my opinion, but of the
    Mega Man 2 Robot Masters he is probably the second hardest or so. What he will
    do at the beginning of the fight is create a Leaf Shield around him, during
    this time you cannot harm him with the buster, also as he has the Shield on he
    will fire off 4 leafs into the air which will rain down, as the leafs begin
    to rain down he will throw the Leaf Shield at you, jump over it and try to get
    as many hits on him as you can and repeate. It is possible to kill him without
    having to jump over him, even on difficult. If you do have to jump over him,
    take advantage of the the time you have after his 4th jump to get on the other
    side of him and repeate from the right side of the room. To kill him without
    having to jump over him, try to get close to him so you can connect faster
    with your shots and get a mininum of 7 shots per leaf shield. If you should
    only get 6 off on accident, then you can still get a quick hit on him after
    his 4th Leaf Shield. Try to pay attention to the raining leafs and jump
    between them as they get close to you.

    Wood Man's Fight is from 5:27 - 5:58
    
    
    ------Crash Man------
    
    Difficulty: 3/10
    
    Crash Bomb------------ 4
    Crash Bomb Explosion-- 4
    Collision------------- 4
    
    Crash Man is the easiest one in Mega Man 2 to buster only kill. That is, of
    course, if you take your time with him. Everytime you shoot, he will jump and
    shoot a Crash Bomb at where you are standing, so what you will want to do is
    jump and shoot so he intercepts the bullet as he jumps and keep moving to the
    right, once you reach the right wall or once the Crash Bomb he fired is
    done exploding turn around, then Jump and Shoot again and keep moving left
    until you get to the left wall or once the 2nd Crash Bomb he fired is done
    exploding and just repeate and he will be as easy as Apple Pie.

    Crash Man's Fight is from 5:59 - 7:14
    
    
    ------Flash Man------
    
    Difficulty: 4/10
    
    Buster Shot-- 2
    Collision---- 4
    
    Flash Man isn't very hard to kill with only the Mega Buster. He takes 2 damage
    per shot so he goes down from only 14 hits. The only obstacles are a very
    jumpy styled room and the icy floor. He will only jump when he gets to a wall
    or when a shot connects with him, so use this knowledge to your advantage,
    don't shoot him when you need to jump over him. He will run around the room,
    and he will Freeze Time every 6 - 8 seconds. Try to jump in the air so that
    you are Frozen in Mid Air and you should avoid all the shots fired from his
    Arm Cannon. Just repeate this and remember to not shoot him when he gets close
    to you so you can jump over him and he will be done before the Apple Pie is
    finished.

    Flash Man's Fight is from 7:15 - 7:40
    
    
    ------Metal Man------
    
    Difficulty: 5/10
    
    Metal Blade-- 3
    Collision---- 6
    
    Metal Man isn't that hard if you keep your distance from him. The 2 of you
    will be fighting on a conveyor. He won't be affected by it though. At the
    beginning of the battle the conveyor will be going to the left and it will
    change directions every 6 seconds. So for the first 6 seconds jump and shoot
    and shoot 1 more shot as you come down to try and score 2 hits. If Metal Man
    throws 1 or 2 Metal Blades, jump over them, if he throws 3, jump over the
    first 2 and let the 3rd one go over you. When the conveyor is going to the
    right, try to stay against the left wall, if you get too close to him he will
    jump to the other side of the room, so try and stay on the left until it
    changes back, then continue the fight.

    Metal Man's Fight is from 7:41 - 8:39
    
    
    ------Heat Man------
    
    Difficulty: 3/10
    
    Flame Pillars------- 4 (It does 4 even before they land)
    Fireball Collision-- 8
    Collision----------- 8
    
    Heat Man is easily predictable and abused. He takes 2 Damage per shot but he 
    catches himself on fire after each shot, during this time you can't hurt him
    and he will turn into a ball of fire and come at you, when he flys at you jump
    over him and shoot him again, then the process will repeate itself, so just
    keep shooting him and jumping over him and he will be done for. If you take
    too long between shots he will get off little fireballs around the room, just
    try and jump between them as they are coming at you, once they land on the
    ground they will form small flame pillars, but they aren't too hard to dodge.
