    -----------------------------------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
    other Robot Masters, check out my guides for them on their FAQ Page.

    ----------------------------------MEGA MAN 9----------------------------------
    After over a decade of waiting since Mega Man 8, we finally got a new classic
    Mega Man, you better believe I was honestly thinking that after so long of
    waiting since Mega Man 8, I figured Capcom had just givin up on Classic Mega
    Man, but am I ever happy they didn't though. I am hoping they keep up the pace
    of making 1 new classic each year, I also want them to be in 8-Bit.
    ------Concrete Man------
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Concrete Shot-- 4
    Collision------ 5
    Concrete Man has 3 attacks to look out for. The first one being his Concrete
    Shot attack, which he will fire 3 blobs of concrete at you, if they hit you
    you will be stoned temporarly, if they miss, they will form blocks on the
    floor that you can jump on, the easiest way to avoid this is to try and stay
    away from Concrete Man and you should just have to run the other way, or run
    under them if you are close to him. If he starts out the fight with Concrete
    Shot, then jump up and try to dodge the blobs and land on them as you come
    down. The second attack that he does is charge at you, just jump over him to
    avoid it, and the third attack he will do is jump into the air and land on the
    gorund, try to stay on whatever side of him has to most room to avoid him with
    and jump right before he lands to avoid being stunned by the room shaking.

    Concrete Man's Fight is from 0:01 - 0:38
    ------Jewel Man------
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Jewel Satellite-- 4
    Collision-------- 4
    If you are good enough at precision shooting then you can get some hits in on
    Jewel Man when he has his Jewel Satellite up. Even if you hit the shield, it
    will knock pieces of it off. You control Jewel Man's Jumping, everytime you
    jump, he jumps. Remember this and he should become quite easy. Basically he
    will put on the Jewel Satellite and then run to one side of the room and back
    and then shoot off all the remaining piece of it off at you, so try to shoot
    off at least 2 pieces of it before he fires it off to make avoiding it easier.
    Once he has shot the remaining pieces at you, he will run to the other side of
    the room and when he gets there he will put a fresh shield on. Just repeate,
    and remember you control his jumping, so try to shoot off his shield and jump
    over the piece you shot off and run under him all in one jump.

    Jewel Man's Fight is from 0:39 - 1:37
    ------Hornet Man------
    Difficulty: 5/10
    Hornets---- 4
    Collision-- 4
    Hornet Man, I personally find to be one of the funnest Robot Masters to Duel
    with the Mega Buster in the entire Classic Series. Bascially at the start of
    the fight he will hover in the air and release 3 hornets, as he hovers into
    the air, jump onto the platform in the center and jump and shoot 2 shots to
    kill the hornet in the center, then do a small hop and shoot 2 shots again to
    kill the one on the bottom and then finally do another big jump and fire 2
    shots to kill the one that was on the top. Now Hornet Man should be back on
    the ground and he will run to the other side, jump over him as he is running
    to the other side, and now he will repeate the same attacks, just repeate
    everything you just did and he will once again run to the side he began on and
    start all over, just keep up the same strategy and he will be done soon.

    Hornet Man's Fight is from 1:38 - 2:11
    ------Plug Man------
    Difficulty: 7/10
    Plug Ball-- 5
    Collision-- 4
    Plug Man is one of the more unpredictable Robot Masters in the Classic Series.
    Most of the time at the beginning of the fight he will bunny hop 3 times and
    then stop and do a large jump towards you, firing a plug ball as he comes down
    Not all the time will be bunny hop at the start though, sometimes he will jump
    across the room and land by you, so at the start of the fight, run and jump
    onto the left part of the triangular type platform on the left and judge what
    to do next based on what he is going to do, if he large hops, try to jump over
    the platform you were on and go under him. If he bunny hops, shoot him and
    then prepare to run under him when he gets done. To avoid his Plug Balls, they
    will follow the floor first, so jump over them and try to stay in place and
    then run out from under when they meet up with your position on the ceiling
    because they will try to fall down and get you.

    Concrete Man's Fight is from 2:12 - 2:48
    ------Splash Woman------
    Difficulty: 4/10
    Fish----------- 3
    Laser Trident-- 6
    Collision------ 4
    Splash Woman is very special in the fact that she is the first and, so far,
    only female Robot Master in the Classic Series. Even though she is special she
    still goes down really quick because she takes 2 damage per shot, thus ending
    her after being shot 14 times. At the start of the fight, she will sing and
    float up to the top of the screen, get some hits in on her at the start when
    she starts singing and jump to avoid the fish she summoned, try to manuever
    around the second ground that comes while still shooting her, the third group
    should just go over you. Now, try to get away from where Splash Woman is at,
    because she will swim towards you and try to hit you with her Trident. Try to
    lure her towards a wall and then run under her after a blast from her trident
    is fired off, then lead her towards to other wall and repeate. After 6 Laser
    Trident Shots, she will come down and be open to attack for a second, unload
    on her at that time. Now she will repeate, and thus, so should you. NOTE: You
    Can Kill the Fish She Summons if you need to!

    Splash Woman's Fight is from 2:49 - 3:27
    ------Magma Man------
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Magma Bazooka-- 4
    Collision------ 4
    Magma Man is one of the more unpredictable Robot Masters. What you will want
    to do is lure him down to the middle of the room, then keep going under him
    and hitting him once he lands, this will let you avoid his Magma Bazooka shots
    and avoid collision damage at the same time. At the start you will probably
    have to avoid one or two Magma Bazookas, but they aren't too hard to avoid.
    Video Link...
    Magma Man's Fight is from 3:28 - 3:59
    ------Galaxy Man------
    Difficulty: 3/10
    Black Hole Bomb-- 4
    Collision-------- 4
    Galaxy Man is one of the easier Robot Masters to Mega Buster fight. At the
    start of the fight most of the time he will go to the top of the room and
    shoot a Black Hole Bomb, which will follow you around, run at it for a second
    then turn around and run the other way for a second and keep doing that until
    the Black Hole Bomb Detonates, now it should be trying to pull you towards
    Galaxy Man, just run away and try to get in a couple hits during this time.
    The only other attack he has is to charge at you while he is on the ground
    just jump over him to avoid it. Sometimes he will charge at you again so be
    ready. Most of the time though, he spends shooting Black Hole Bombs, so not
    much to worry about.

    Galaxy Man's Fight is from 4:00 - 4:55
    ------Tornado Man------
    Difficulty: 6/10
    Tornado Blow-- 4
    Collision----- 4
    Tornado Man, despite only taking 1 damage per shot can go down quick most of
    the time, because he is stationary for longer peroids of time than most Robot
    Masters. Most of the time at the start of the fight he will stand and use his
    Tornado Blow attack, just get some quick hits in on him until you see the
    Tornados, then jump and try to manuever past them or between them, next he
    usually flys into the air and does the same thing again, just wait until he
    uses it and use the boost to your jump to get some hits in on him while he is
    in the air. After the attack is done while he is in the air, he should try to
    land on you, sometimes he will just fly up a little bit and then charge at you
    trying to land on you. But most of the time he will be open because of his
    Tornado Blow attack. Just be sure not to jump so high you hit the spikes in
    the ceiling.

    Tornado Man's Fight is from 4:56 - 5:34
    --------------------------------BONUS BATTLE!---------------------------------
    Here we will cover some Extra Robot's that I always considered 9th Robot
    Masters. Basically it's just Mega Man, Dark Man, and Fake Man. To See the
    strategy's for Mega Man and/or Dark Man then check out my guide on the Mega
    Man 1 or Mega Man 5 FAQ Page.
    ------Fake Man------
    Difficulty: 5/10
    Buster Shot-- 4
    Collision---- 4
    Fake Man may seem hard, but once you learn his pattern he becomes really easy
    and predictable. When the fight starts, jump and shoot at him, he should jump
    back and fire 2 shots, do a small hop over the bottom shot and now he should
    jump to the other side of the room, firing off 2 shots at you, jump over the
    first and run away from him and jump to avoid the second one, when he lands he
    will fire off two shots, jump over them and repeate. He is a Fast Robot Master
    but once you have him down he becomes easy.

    Fake Man's Fight is from 5:35 - 6:17
