    I guess I didn't need to write the above, but just in case, y'know.
    This is a Walkthrough for Mega Man (Game Boy).
    It was written over some bottles of Fanta and lots of OLW Cheez Doodles.
    It's completely original - I wrote this over my personal experience
    with this game, and I did NOT copy (read: steal) ANY information from any
    other source. Honest.
    I've tried to cover every single piece of the game here, but I don't know if
    I've succeeded. At least you can use it as a resource if you're stuck in the
    I'm from Norway, and my English isn't too good. If you find any errors in the
    language, bear over with it, unless it's impossible to understand what I'm
    Also, my English is probably a mix between American English and British
    English. But that doesn't matter too much, does it?
    If you find any information that's wrong, if you have additions for this
    guide, if you need help with the game, or ANYTHING, please e-mail me at
    spug_enigma@hotmail.com .
    Oh, and yeah, if you'd like to make me a better ASCII logo at the top of the
    document, saying MEGA MAN, then please, go ahead, and mail it to me. The
    current sucks (especially the E and the G), as I'm terrible at ASCII. You'll
    be acknowledged in the Credits or something, of course.
    0.A)  UPDATES
    Version 2.2 - December 30, 2002
      Minor fixes. Happy new year.
      File size: 68.9 kb
    Version 2.1 - October 5, 2002
      Seems I forgot to add the Checkpoints for the Wily levels. They're there
      File size: 68.7 kb
    Version 2.0 - August 22, 2002
      The first major update of the guide. I realized that the walkthrough for the
      levels (section 7.B, Level Strategies) really sucked and was really short,
      so I rewrote the whole thing. I also added Checkpoints to the walkthrough.
      Yay for me!
      This caused a big change in the file size, though... Oh well, you can't get
      something for nothing, I guess.
      As totally rewriting the walkthrough is quite a big update, I changed the
      version number to 2.0. Hope you don't mind.
      File size: 68.2 kb
    Version 1.2 - August 1, 2002
      ANOTHER minor update and fix. Added, among other things, the incredibly
      useful Cartridge Code in the Game Bio section.
      File size: 56.3 kb
    Version 1.1 - July 12, 2002
      Some minor updates and fixes.

    Version 1.0 - July 4, 2002
      Initial release.

    This Guide was written solely in an ASCII (pure text) editor called Araneae
    ( http://www.araneae.com ), so I could watch that I didn't write too many
    characters on each line :-)
    The file contains no text formatting whatsoever. This file has 79 characters
    per line or less. Compatible with any screen resolutions (AT LEAST 800x600 and
    If you have problems reading this guide, please e-mail me at
    spug_enigma@hotmail.com .
    NOTE: I would advise you to view this guide in either your web browser or (if
    you download this file to your hard drive) Notepad. You can also view it in
    WordPad if you want to, but be sure that you've set Text -> Word Wrap to
    'Wrap words after window width' (or something similar, I use the Norwegian
    version, so I just translated it) in the Options window.
    Just as a note, this is my first attempt on a guide, ever. So don't get mad
    if it's a little bad (Wow, I can rhyme too. Those skills never stop annoying
    me.). I'll try to write one guide for every Mega Man game I've played...
    Hopefully. At least that's my plan.
    I'll AT LEAST write a Guide for each Mega Man game for the Game Boy (1 - 5).
    So if I get more trained in writing guides with time, I guess I'll probably
    rewrite the bad ones.
    This Guide is for the GAME BOY GAME Mega Man, not the NES game... Sorry for
    some confusion. By the way, blame Capcom, not me!
    I dunno why the games are named the same; they have nothing with eachother to
    do (well, they're both Mega Man games, but you see what I mean).
    In Japan, this game is called Rockman World (Mega Man is named Rockman in
    Japanese), so I don't see why they didn't name this game Mega Man World or
    The full name of this game, though, is actually Mega Man - Dr. Wily's Revenge.
    But what the heck. As long as you understand it, it's OK.
    Mega Man 1 for Game Boy is NO recompilation of the NES game. They're
    completely different games. There, then it's settled.
    I started my Nintendo-career with this game (and Tetris) as a six or seven
    year old. My older brother borrowed me his Game Boy Original (also known as
    'the brick'), and with it Tetris and - yeah - Mega Man.
    Not necessary to say, I didn't understand much of Mega Man at that time, but I
    played it through all the upcoming years. I didn't complete it until I was 14!
    At first I thought it was just another Game Boy game, you know, a one-timer, a
    no-hit. Not a part of a series. A single game that didn't sell much. A game
    with few fans worldwide... I think you get it.
    Myself (and my brother), I thought it was very good. Even though I didn't know
    the story or anything about who Mega Man was (at first I thought the Stage
    Select screen was were you chose what character to CONTROL; not fight... ;P),
    but that changed nothing. The game ruled!
    Maybe I thought it ruled simply because I was a kid, but the game was so
    simple (not simple as in 'easy to beat' (As I said, I didn't complete it
    before I was 14), but it's not a complicated game like Zelda or something), I
    had fun with it.
    I still play this game. It's a wonderful game, and in my opinion, it's one of
    the games with the best feeling of the whole series.
    2)  FAQ
    Q: Is this Guide for the NES game Mega Man?
    A: No. It's for the Game Boy game Mega Man.
       Read section 1, Introduction, for more information.
    Q: What's the difference?
    A: They're completely different games.
    Q: How many Robot Masters does this game feature?
    A: There are 8 Robot Masters in this game, and they appear 4 at a time.
       The four first Robot Masters are from Mega Man 1 for NES, and the
       other four are from Mega Man 2 for NES.
       There's also another boss in the game, named Enker.
    Q: Does Mega Man have any helper in this game?
    A: No, he doesn't, unfortunately. But he'll receive the adapter Carry.
    Q: Why do you say 'Mega Man', and not 'Megaman'?
    A: Because it's correct. Both spellings have been used in the games, but
       'Mega Man' is used more frequently and is considered correct.
       As an addition, I actually e-mailed Capcom and asked - they answered
       that 'Mega Man' is the correct spelling.
       EVEN FOR PROTO MAN. I know most of you people spell it 'Protoman', but
       Capcom says that 'Proto Man' is correct even for him. Yeah.
       Every robot in the Mega Man series that ends on -Man is spelled that way,
       with a space. So there.
       If you don't know who Proto Man is, don't care.
    Q: Why do you call Mega Man's arm cannon 'Plasma Cannon' and not
       'Mega Buster'? I know that it's named Mega Buster!
    A: No, Mega Man's arm cannon is named Plasma Cannon in the first two Game Boy
       games and in the first three NES games. His Plasma Cannon is upgraded to a
       Mega Buster in Mega Man 4 for NES (and Mega Man III for Game Boy), with
       the ability to charge energy in the cannon and release a more powerful
       shot. So no, you're mistaken. In this game, Mega Man's arm cannon is named
       'Plasma Cannon'. Why do you think it's denoted by the letter 'P' on the
       weapons sub screen, anyway?
    Q: Why is this guide so long?
    A: Well, I don't really know. I said it would cover every nidbit of the game,
       and then it has to be pretty long.
    Q: I hate you!
    A: I hate you too. Piss off.

    Mega Man - Dr. Wily's Revenge is the first of five Game Boy Mega Man games
    Capcom released.
    The considered 'real' Mega Man series are Mega Man 1 through 6 on the NES
    console, Mega Man 7 for SNES and Mega Man 8 for PlayStation.
    However, Capcom released 5 Game Boy games as well. These don't fit in the same
    timeline, apparently, but I believe they consist of the same line.
    There are some differences between the 'original' Mega Man games and the
    Game Boy games, but the basics are all the same, together with the story:
    Dr. Albert Wily has released eight so-called Robot Masters to conquer the
    world, and the super robot Mega Man has to fight his way through several
    stages and defeat each of these robots and in the end face Dr. Wily himself.
    The differences between the 'original' games and the Game Boy games are:
    - The Game Boy games don't feature new Robot Masters, but they reuse
      eight Robot Masters from the previously released NES games (this doesn't
      apply for Mega Man 5 for Game Boy, because it doesn't have Robot Masters
      at all, but something called Star Droids).
      Mega Man I for Game Boy (the game covered in this Guide) reuses Robot
      Masters from Mega Man 1 and Mega Man 2 for the NES system - the first four
      (Cut Man, Ice Man, Elec Man and Fire Man) are from Mega Man 1, and the
      last four (in the teleport hatches, Quick Man, Bubble Man, Flash Man and
      Heat Man) are from Mega Man 2.
    - Whereas most of the original Mega Man games challenges you with eight Robot
      Masters at a time, where you can choose who you want to fight, the Game Boy
      games challenge you with FOUR Robot Masters in the start (you can still
      choose who to fight), and later in the game you have to fight four other
      Robot Masters.
    - The obvious - the NES games are in color, and the Game Boy games are black
      and white. The quality of the graphics and sound are identical with the NES
      games though, as both the NES and Game Boy are 8-bit systems.
    - The Game Boy screen is quite a lot smaller than the NES screen (which, in
      turn, is your TV screen). This makes it a bit harder to navigate Mega Man
      around, as he's bigger in the Game Boy games than he is in the NES games,
      considering the screen size.

    3.B)  STORY
    Background story:
    Dr. Thomas Xavier Light created the humanoid robots ROCK and ROLL (I think you
    get it). But when his assistant, Dr. Albert Wily, later turned evil and tried
    to take over the world, Light rebuilt Rock to the super robot MEGA MAN to
    defeat Wily.
    This game's story, as it appears in the original game manual:
    Mega Man, once again you must save the world, because Dr. Wily just won't
    stop! This time the unbelievably insane scientist has restored eight of the
    Robot Masters you previously mashed into metal marmalade.
    Four of them - Ice Man, Electric Man, Cut Man and Fire Man - are running wild
    and tearing up the town. Those are the nice ones!
    Another four - Quick Man, Heat Man, Bubble Man, and Flash Man - are lurking in
    Dr. Wily's complex, with a factory-full of industrial-strength robot smashers
    that you won't believe!
    But that's nothing compared to what you'll face in Dr. Wily's Space Node.
    So load up the Plasma Cannon, Mega Man. It's time to get the lead out!
    3.C)  CONTROLS
    These are the buttons you use to control Mega Man in the actual game.
    The buttons UP, DOWN, LEFT and RIGHT are on the pad that looks like a plus
    sign. This pad is called the D-Pad, or Direction Pad.
    UP    - Climb up a ladder.
    DOWN  - Climb down a ladder.
    LEFT  - Move left.
            Aim in the left direction while you're climbing a ladder.
    RIGHT - Move right.
            Aim in the right direction while you're climbing a ladder.
    A     - Jump. The longer you hold the button, the higher Mega Man jumps.
            Fall down if you're climbing a ladder.
    B     - Fire Mega Man's current weapon.
    START - Bring up the sub menu, where you can choose what weapon to use.
    A + B + START + SELECT - Reset the game.
    4)  ITEMS
    All of the below listed items can be received in any of the following ways:
    - If you kill an enemy (not Robot Masters), it MAY leave a random item.
    - If you kill one of the last four Robot Masters (teleport hatches, look
      below), he will leave a Big Energy Pellet.
    - All the items can be found scattered around in various levels.
      Note that if you pick up one item that's just lying in a level, it will
      NOT come back if you die.
    Small Energy Pellet  -  A small, flashing orb.
                            This Pellet restores two units of Mega Man's energy.
    Big Energy Pellet    -  A large, flashing ball.
                            This Pellet restores ten units of Mega Man's energy.
    Small Weapon Capsule -  A small capsule.
                            Will restore two units of the currently active Weapon
                            or Adapter.
    Big Weapon Capsule   -  A large capsule with a flashing center.
                            Will restore ten units of the currently active Weapon
                            or Adapter.
    1-Up                 -  Looks like a Mega Man head.
                            You will get 1 new life - another try. If Mega Man
                            loses all his energy, you will now be able to continue
                            one more time.
    The Energy Pellets are known as Power Pellets in the instruction booklet for
    this game, the Weapon Capsules are known as Energy Pellets, and the 1-Up is
    called Extra Life Capsule.
    However, I have chosen to use the names that are more frequently used for
    these items.
    5)  ENEMIES
    The names used for the enemies here are the same as the ones used in the
    ending sequence of the game.
    I will use these names throughout the Guide, so remember to read this section
    if you don't want to be confused later on.
    The Suzies are small squares with one eye in the middle. They move in a fixed
    pattern - from left to right, or up and down. They will stop when they hit a
    wall, the ceiling or the floor. Then they will close their eyes and rest for a
    second, before they travel back the same way they came from.
    Changkey Maker
    The Changkey Makers are huge fire fiends. They have legs and arms, and a head
    with fire on the top (much like Fire Man). Found mainly in Fire Man's level
    and Dr. Wily's Castle and Space Node, they will throw Changkeys (look below)
    at you.
    They never move, but stay put in one place, so they're easy to kill as long
    as you avoid the Changkeys they throw at you.
    The Changkeys are fireballs with eyes. They appear in Fire Man's level (where
    they fall down passages to make your life harder), and they are thrown out by
    Changkey Makers (look above).
    They really can't move by themself, they just fall or get thrown.
    You can't kill a Changkey either. Not that you want to.
    Cutting Wheel
    The Cutting Wheels look like saw blades with eyes. When a Cutting Wheel
    appears, it makes a weird sound.
    The Cutting Wheels don't move before you approach them (until then they
    usually hover in the air), and then they fall down to the ground and roll
    around. Very irritating, try to get rid of them while they're still hovering.
    Mainly found in Cut Man's level and Wily's Space Node.
    Screw Driver
    The Screw Drivers are small things that pop out of the ground or ceiling,
    shoot out Plasma Shots in every direction, and go into the ground again so
    only the 'head' is visible.
    Okay, that wasn't a really good explanation, but they are those enemies found
    almost everywhere. If that said you anything.
    Super Cutter
    The Super Cutters look just like Cut Man's weapon; the Rolling Cutter.
    Much like the Cutting Wheels, they are mainly found in Cut Man's level and
    Wily's Space Node.
    They also hover in the air, but when you approach them they start moving
    around in a circle.
    Can't be killed. But remember that you can freeze them in their tracks with
    the Ice Slasher, and can then be easily avoided.
    The Metalls - usually known as just 'Mets' - are the little guys that normally
    hide inside their helmets. When you approach them, they'll shoot out three
    Plasma Shots, and then hide under the helmet again.
    Other Mets will open their helmets, shoot three shots and then walk a little,
    before they hide in the helmets again.
    Can only be damaged when the helmet is opened. But then again, they only take
    one hit to die.
    The Gabyoalls are small things that just travel along the floor, and never
    stop. They are lower than Mega Man's knee (almost), so Mega Man can't shoot
    them unless he's standing on a lower floor than them.
    If Mega Man shoots it with his normal Plasma Cannon, it'll just freeze in its
    tracks. In other words, use another weapon to kill it.
    The Scworms are boomerang-shaped worms that jump out of a small thing on the
    ground (which I like to refer to as a Scworm Maker (much like Changkey Maker,
    however, I guess Scworm Nest would be more accurate)). The Scworm Maker is too
    low for Mega Man to shoot, unless he uses another Weapon or stands on a lower
    The Moles are drills that drill through the floor, come out in the open and
    then disappear through the ceiling. Or vice versa.
    They only appear a couple of times in the game, but when they appear, they
    come out in an endless flow. These areas are good places to get back some
    The Pipis are birds that come flying in, drop an egg and fly out again.
    The egg cracks open, and five (or so) small Pipis will come out of it and fly
    straight at you. Annoying little things.
    Sniper Joe
    The Sniper Joes are the robots with the shield and one eye.
    First they cover themselves with the shield, then they take away the shield
    and shoot three shots at you, then they hide behind the shield again.
    They are only vulnerable when they're not hiding behind the shield (duh).
    Some Joes even jump around. If one of these Joes covers himself with the
    shield while he's in the air, his shield will have no effect - you can always
    damage a Joe if he's jumping. Shield or not.
    The Bigeyes are huge robots with one, big eye (thus the name).
    They stand still on the ground, before they jump towards you.
    They can only be harmed while they're in the air.
    Kaminari Goro
    (Name note: As Kaminari Goro is the Japanese name, and pretty weird, I will
    use the English name for this enemy throughout this entire Guide:
    Lightning Lord.)
    The Lightning Lords are enemies that sit on top of small clouds and fly
    around in circles. Every now and then they will throw a small lightning at
    After you kill a Lightning Lord, you can stand on his cloud and use it as a
    Bunby Heri
    The Bunby Heris are small heads that fly in the air. They only take one Plasma
    Shot to die.
    Also known as Bladers.
    Enough talk already. Let's get on with the Guide!

    This is the order I like to defeat the Robot Masters, and with what weapon:
    Elec Man   -  Use Plasma Cannon
    Ice Man    -  Use Thunder Beam
    Fire Man   -  Use Ice Slasher
    Cut Man    -  Use Fire Storm
    Flash Man  -  Use Ice Slasher
    Quick Man  -  Use Plasma Cannon, then Time Stopper
    Bubble Man -  Use Quick Boomerang
    Heat Man   -  Use Bubble Lead
    Enker      -  Use Plasma Cannon
    In the Recommended Order.
    Some places in the levels there are 'checkpoints' - if you get to that special
    point in the level, you will reappear there if you die.
    I've denoted these checkpoints with "** CHECKPOINT **" in the walkthrough
    (Note: There is ALWAYS a checkpoint right outside the door of the Robot Master
    of each level, but I won't denote those. They're there, though.)
    (For strategies on fighting the Robot Masters, check out section 7.C, Boss
    His level is kinda long, but pretty easy. It starts off with a fan that'll
    blow you backwards (*cough* Air Man similarities?). You'll meet those a couple
    of places throughout the level. Just run against it and approach the spikes.
    Don't fall down on them. Some Disappearing Blocks (now you can stand on me;
    now you can't) will appear in the air over the spikes. They're pretty
    annoying, but with some training you'll handle them very easily. Jump on them
    and use them as platforms. Be careful so you don't fall down to the spikes.
    When you're across, climb the ladder on the other side.
    You'll see two electricity beams there. When the one close to you is gone,
    jump quickly through so you won't get electrocuted. Watch it so you don't
    smack your head in the ceiling above the ladder as you jump, walk as far out
    to the left of the ladder as you can.
    Now jump through the vertical beam (while it's away, of course). Climb the
    next ladder.
    Okay, this is a tricky one. Another Disappearing Blocks area. Luckily, if you
    miss this time and fall down, you won't be killed instantly, you'll just fall
    sown one screen.
    When the first Block appears, jump on it. Jump further up to the second block
    and then to the bottom third. Now it gets tricky. The next Block will appear
    directly over your head - the only way to land on it is to jump upwards BEFORE
    the Block appears, and you'll jump THROUGH it as it appears, instead of
    slamming your head up in it.
    When you're past, climb the ladder to the left. Two more electric beams.
    Jump through the first one when it's inactive and land on the middle platform,
    but don't go too far right on it as you might get hit by the second beam then.
    When the second beam is gone, jump right and climb up the ladder.
    Another place with Disappearing Blocks. Isn't this great fun? This time you'll
    only have to jump forwards. The tricky part is that all the time you'll be
    blown backwards by a fan, plus that the instant a new Disappearing Block
    appears, the previous one will disappear. So learn the pattern and time your
    jumps - jump to the next Block right BEFORE the current disappears, and you'll
    land on the other one. Climb up the ladder when you're set.
    Now you'll enter a room with some Suzies. Kill them all off (it's not hard),
    and climb the ladder at the top.
    ** CHECKPOINT **
    Now you're outside. Doesn't fresh air feel goooood?
    Walk to the right and kill the Lightning Lord (*cough* Air Man again?). Don't
    get hit by the lightnings he throws out. When he's dead, jump and land on his
    cloud. Wait for it to move more to the right, and kill the next Lightning Lord
    you see there. Jump over to his cloud, and repeat this process with the last
    Lightning Lord in line and climb up the stairs to the right.
    Kill the three Suzies. When the Disappearing Block over the spikes APPEARS in
    the middle, jump down on it and back up again, and climb the ladder on the
    left. Jump on and over the electric beam in the next screen and continue
    upwards. Kill the Suzies and keep going up.
    Another fan will blow you backwards here while you have to jump through two
    beams of electricity and watch out so you don't fall into the spike pits.
    Just run slightly to the right all the time, and you won't fall into them.
    In the next screen, walk as much to the left on the ladder as you can without
    falling, and then shoot the Met when it opens its helmet. Jump over to the
    second platform and shoot the other Met too before you advance upwards.
    Kill the three Suzies, and then use the Disappearing Blocks to reach the new
    Here you have to watch out. You'll have to climb up the ladder while
    constantly pausing so you won't get hit by the electric beams.
    Then kill the Suzies in the next screen while you climb the ladder.
    Then you have to pass another ladder section with two electric beams.
    Kill or dodge the Bigeye on the top of the 'roof' of the level. Take care of
    the two Mets as well, then jump into the hole at the right to face Elec Man.
    You start off out in the open. Remember that the ground is slippery.
    Right when you teleport down, a Buby Heri will try to attack you, so shoot
    it. Just run to the right while you jump and kill all Bunby heris you see.
    Don't let anyone of them hit you, because then you'll never get rid of it.
    Climb down the ladder. You'll come inside, where you can fetch a Big Energy
    Pellet if you need it - but I don't think you do this early in the level.
    Remember that if you take it, it won't reappear if you die. If you leave it,
    though, you can come back later if you need it.
    Kill the Suzies and climb down the ladder.
    ** CHECKPOINT **
    Earliest checkpoint in history... Anyway...
    Shoot the Bunby Heri and jump on the Ice Platform to get to safe ground. Don't
    fall down on the spikes. Also don't stand on the Ice Platform too long, as the
    heat Mega Man emits (even though he's a robot) will slowly melt it under your
    feet. Kill the next Bunby Heri, and then jump over two other Ice Platforms.
    Shoot the Bunby Heri that appears midways on those platforms.
    If you need the Big Weapon Capsule, stand on the Ice Platform directly above
    it and wait for it to melt. When it has, fall down, take the Capsule and jump
    right up again before you hit the spikes.
    Kill the Scworm Maker (best way is with a Master Weapon, but if you don't have
    any, just try and hit it with your Plasma Cannon from the air.
    Kill the three Suzies and then the second Scworm Maker. Use the platform the
    Scworm Maker was on to reach the top ladder.
    Then you have to do something interesting; some icicles will fall down from
    the ceiling. Avoid them, if they hit you, you will die, but you have to use
    them as platforms when they've hit the ground. Cool.
    As soon as you've entered the room, jump up on the platform and run to the
    left side of it. When the icicle has hit the right side of the platform, jump
    on top of it so you don't get hit by the one falling down to the left.
    When the third and last icicle has fallen, jump on it and jump to the ladder.
    In the second icicle room, wait until the first icicle has hit the snow on the
    far right of the platform you're standing on.
    Jump on it, then jump as far to the right as you can. You'll land on the
    platform under the ladder. Climb up.
    (This wasn't the way that icicle room was intended to be solved, I know, but
    that was the easiest.)
    A Bigeye is waiting for you in the next room. As fast as you can, run against
    it and towards the wall on the left side. Then, when the Bigeye jumps, it'll
    jump right over your head. Climb the ladder.
    Take the Big Energy Capsule there if you need it. Kill the Bunby Heri to the
    right, and get ready to fight the Sniper Joe. Be careful so you don't fall
    into the pit, and fire loose at the Joe.
    Jump from platform to platform, and be extremely careful not to accidentally
    slip off the edge or otherwise fall into the pits. Kill all the Scworm Makers
    you see on your way. Right after the last one (there are four or five, I
    think), fall down the hole on the right and get ready to face Ice Man.
    First you'll have to handle some Suzies. Easy and greasy. Climb down the
    ladder on the right. You'll have to kill more Suzies, a good tactic is to kill
    the ones in the ceiling from the ladder and then take the two on the ground in
    two goes. Leap down the hole to your left.
    Now you'll have to jump over those lava pits, while avoiding the falling
    Changkeys (those fireballs there).
    Remember that lava is like spikes - you can stand on lava if you're flashing!
    After the second pit a Bunby Heri will appear. Jump and kill it before it
    starts swarming. After the next pit a new one will appear. After you've shot
    it, wait until the 'firewall' (har har) on the next platform has temporarily
    calmed down, and continue rightwards. Kill the Bunby Heri that appears, and
    then kill the Sniper Joe there. Shouldn't be too hard.
    Yet two Bunby Heris will appear, before you'll have to get past another wall
    of fire and kill three more Bunby Heris (has Wily got an unlimited supply of
    those?). Climb down the ladder to the far right.
    Now you'll have to do a risky jump over another lava pit (while Changkeys fall
    down). If you can't do the jump, get hit by a Changkey on purpose and walk on
    the lava. Then you fall down into a big, dark and gloomy room.
    ** CHECKPOINT **
    Okay, walk towards the right. Now get rid of that nasty Changkey Maker up
    there. A tips; always be on the move, or the Changkey Maker'll hit you with
    its Changkeys and leet aiming skillz.
    You'll then face two more Changkey Makers. Don't get hit much, or you'll be
    dead in a minute. When you're through, climb the ladder.
    Now you'll have a close combat with a Sniper Joe. Just fire away and climb up.
    Three Screw Drivers are waiting for you - kill'em all.
    There's a Big Energy Pellet on a platform above you - to reach it, you need
    the Ice Slasher. Freeze the fire wall thing that comes out of the wall, and
    stand on it when it's frozen to reach the platform with the Pellet
    (I didn't know you could freeze fire?).
    Walk to the right and jump over the lava, past the Changkeys. Kill the Suzies.
    Get past another fire wall, and then kill the Changkey Maker before it kills
    you. It can be pretty hard, as you'll have to jump and shoot continually, but
    you'll manage.
    Jump over the lava and shoot the two Screw Drivers. About four Bunby Heris
    will approach you, but you can handle them.
    Now you'll come to two rooms (not at once though) where you'll have to jump
    over two small flames (one in each room) that move along the floor. These can
    be pretty tricky to jump over, but there are no general advices... Just jump
    when they've just started moving towards you again.
    Or, even better, if you've got the Ice Slasher, freeze the flames with it.
    Then you'll have to take care of an unfair amount of Changkey Makers, before
    you at last meet the boss.
    This level is kinda tricky, but it's not as long as it seems.
    Mega Man will start off near a Screw Driver. Walk a little to the right, then
    Shoot it when it pops up. Then jump and fire a couple of times at the Cutting
    Wheel on the ledge to the right. Don't get to close to it, or it'll attack.
    Jump down on the other side and get rid of the Screw Driver there. If you have
    a Master Weapon that can do the trick, you can kill the Screw Driver in the
    ceiling as well, but it might be just as well to just run past it. Kill the
    next Screw Driver on the ground, and the last one in the ceiling if you want.
    Continue right wards, under the small shelf with the 1-Up on it. Hurry to the
    right so you don't get hit by the Cutting Wheel that'll hurl itself down at
    you. Dodge the shots from or kill the Screw Drivers. Continue until you're
    standing at the edge of a pit.
    If you want a 1-Up, jump up to the right, on the conveyor belt. Run to the
    left, against it, and shoot the Cutting Wheel before it can react.
    Then just jump to the left (time it a little, or you'll miss) and land on the
    platform with the 1-Up.
    Jump over the pit to the right and then over the Gabyoall. Dodge the Cutting
    Wheel as good as you can, or kill it with a Master Weapon. Then drop down the
    hole to the right.
    Keep as far to the right wall as you can, and kill the Cutting Wheel that's
    closest to you. Then walk to the left, until the Cutting Wheel drops down,
    and jump over it and down on the left.
    Right, more conveyor belts (I thought conveyor belts were Metal Man's thing?).
    Walk slowly to the right, and then jump over the Cutting Wheel when it
    attacks. Kill the next Cutting Wheel before you jump up on the next conveyor
    belt. Jump to the right (where you can grab a Big Weapon Capsule) and advance
    to the right. Dodge the Gabyoall on the ground AND the Screw Driver in the
    ceiling, or kill the latter from one of the platforms. Take the Small Energy
    Pellet on the platform if you want to.
    Go to the right (without falling down the pit) and climb up the ladder.
    Argh, now comes a painful room. Especially if you're low on energy.
    Jump up on the platform that's closest to you and walk as far to the left edge
    as you can without hitting your head in the platform above you when you jump.
    When the Screw Driver to the right isn't shooting, jump and fire a few shots
    at the Cutting Wheel and the other Screw Driver until they're both dead.
    Then drop down and run to the left side of the room - don't get hit by the
    Screw Driver's shots. Then just climb up the ladder.
    ** CHECKPOINT **
    Finally a checkpoint...
    Take out the Sniper Joe there (maybe not from the ladder, if he hits you you
    might get blown back down to the previous room and get attacked by the Cutting
    Wheel), and continue to the right. When you step too close to that Super
    Cutter there, it'll start moving. Time your jumps correctly to get past it.
    Then you'll face ANOTHER Super Cutter, which you'll have to get past while
    running towards a conveyor belt, plus that you'll have to kill two, count'em,
    TWO Cutting Wheels on the end of the conveyor belt. Maybe you should use a
    Master Weapon if you've got them. Drop down to the right.
    A Bigeye's waiting for you down there. As I've mentioned, I like to freeze the
    Bigeye with the Ice Slasher while it's in the air (which is the only time it's
    vulnerable) and then walk under it (or kill it if I can't fit under it).
    Right; You'll probably get past him whatever procedure you use. When you have,
    trigger the Cutting Wheel there and jump over it when it comes.
    Do this again for the second Cutting Wheel up there. Then get past a Super
    Cutter (tricky one; try freezing it with the Ice Slasher).
    Defeat the Sniper Joe, then get past two Super Cutters (Ice Slasher is a good
    idea here too), and you're through Cut Man's level.
    Well, this is it - you've reached Wily's Castle.
    Grab the 1-Up in the start using your newly obtained item - the Carry Adapter.
    This nifty thing will create a platform directly under Mega Man's feet, so
    equip it, jump, fire and voila, fetch the 1-Up.
    Don't pick up the Weapon Capsule on the opposite side of the room yet, as all
    your weapons already are full. Save it for later, in case you die and restart
    here with less weapon energy.
    Or, you can use it on Carry, of course.
    Right - better get started on the level itself.
    You'll face a multitude of Suzies, before you'll have to destroy a Sniper Joe
    while you're being blown backwards by some oversized fans. Easy.
    Then a Bigeye appears - freeze it while it's in the air, with the Ice Slasher,
    and either walk under it or kill it.
    Then you'll reach a narrow passage, where lots of Moles try to block your
    path. Just destroy as many as you can as you advance forwards - slowly.
    This is your fat chance in getting some power, mind; just stand still in one
    spot and shoot at the helpless Moles, and they'll eventually drop some useful
    stuff, like energy and - if you're lucky - a 1-Up.
    Now, here comes a tricky part. You'll find yourself falling down. To be fairly
    safe, equip Carry and press B if you're near death. If you can land on one of
    platforms, even better. If you did, let yourself fall on the LEFT side of the
    screen, and whatever you do, stay out of the middle (where some spikes will
    appear). As soon as you're past the spikes, get yourself a bit to the right,
    so you're near the wall separating the screen, so you won't be hit by the
    Changkey Maker.
    Now, equip Carry again, because you'll most likely hit the spikes underneath
    if you don't. Press B as soon as you're in the screen with the spikes, and
    leap to safety on the left.
    ** CHECKPOINT **
    Now you have to fight a Sniper Joe - although this one jumps if you jump. Not
    very hard, though, as his shield doesn't work while he's in the air.
    Some Metalls and Bunby Heris will appear, just blast them while you jump over
    the spikes. Then you have to kill some Metalls who actually have legs - watch
    out for that.
    If you need some life energy or weapon energy, you can pick up some in the
    next screen - but they're under an electric beam. You should be able to
    quickly jump down and then up again, though. If Carry has low energy, refill
    that one using the Weapon Capsule, as you'll need it soon.
    Now you'll meet a Scworm Maker, which will ... make Scworms. It's too low for
    you to shoot it with your Plasma Cannon, so pick another weapon. I always use
    the Thunder Beam. You have to use Carry in order to advance here.
    Keep Carry equipped - you'll fall down again. At once you've started falling,
    steer left to land on a platform. If you desperately need some Weapon
    refilling, try some risky Carry usage to fetch the three Weapon Capsules -
    otherwise, don't bother.
    Fall down again, still equipped with Carry, and press B if you're facing the
    spikes (which you probably are). Get down to the left.
    Right, now it's kinda tricky, here. When the beam of electricity that comes
    out of the wall is temporarily gone, quickly run forwards and jump onto the
    next level. You'll be blown backwards by a fan here, while you have to look
    out for the electric beam, so be careful. Kill the Gabyoall. Not with your
    Plasma Cannon, however, as it's ineffective.
    When you fall down now, equip a long-range weapon such as Thunder Beam.
    A nasty Pipi bird will appear, you see, and drop an egg. You have to kill it
    before it drops its egg, or kill the egg if it's already dropped. Use the
    Thunder Beam (or another long-range weapon, as I said) for that.
    Now you'll approach the second (and last) army of Moles. If you're low on
    energy, get some here.
    When you're done, leap down (and stick to the right wall) to land on a
    platform. If you fancy an extra life, use the Carry twice over the gap and
    take the 1-Up (you have to time good in order to make Carry platforms in the
    right moment). If you don't need it, or when you've taken it, fall down and
    STICK TO THE MIDDLE of the screen, unless you'd like to hit the spikes.
    When you're through, you're in the Teleportation Room. Here you'll fight
    four more Robot Masters, plus the humanoid robot Enker. For strategies on how
    to beat them, see the next section (7.C), Boss Strategies, and scroll
    down until you see Wily's Skull Castle.
    Here's the layout for the Teleport Hatches found in the end of the level.
    Each of them brings you to an instant boss battle with the respective Robot:
       _______           _______
      |       |         |       |
      | Quick |         | Bubble|
      |  Man  |         |  Man  |
      |       |         |       |
       -------  _______  -------
      |       ||       ||       |
      | Flash || Enker ||  Heat |
      |  Man  ||       ||  Man  |
      |       ||       ||       |
       ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯  ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯  ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    The Enker hatch in the middle doesn't appear before you've
    defeated all the other four Robot Masters.
    If you've reached the Space Node but you get Game Over, don't simply turn off
    the Game Boy. You won't have to finish the entire Skull Castle all over again
    to reach the Space Node!
    Just press B (Continue) on the second Game Over screen (the one that doesn't
    display a Password), and you'll start at the beginning of the Space Node.
    Okay, here I am again, strolling off.
    In the start of this level, you'll immediately face a Sniper Joe - he's one
    of those who jumps. After you've got rid of him, some walking Metalls will
    appear. After they're destroyed, use Carry to get up to the high platform, and
    then use it again to reach the ice cubes. Those will melt as you stand on
    them, so wait until at least one and a half are melted, and you can advance
    through the level.
    Destroy the Screw Driver in the ceiling, then jump over or destroy the
    Gabyoall that'll zoom against you. Then, destroy the Scworm Maker.
    Don't get hit by the electricity, and kill the Metall while you dodge the
    Screw Driver in the ceiling.
    As you're falling, stick to the wall to the right to land on a platform.
    From there, you'll have to jump over some spikes and walk through a beam of
    electricity when it's away - all while you struggle to walk towards a blowing
    Then you'll have to get over the dreaded spike pit. Some Disappearing
    Platforms will appear (and disappear), so jump from platform to platform as
    fast as you can. It's not that hard, really. Just don't rush it, wait and see
    where the next platform appears.
    Right, when you're past that, get out the Thunder Beam (or another long-range
    weapon) - yep, it's another Pipi. Shoot it before it can deliver the egg - or
    shoot the egg itself.
    ** CHECKPOINT **
    Now you'll face three Bigeyes, so use whatever strategy you like - I use to
    freeze it with the Ice Slasher when it's in the air, and then finish it off
    with a Thunder Beam or Rolling Cutter.
    Then two Cutting Wheels will appear. The first one will almost immediately
    launch itself at you, try to jump over it, and it'll be caught in the lower
    corner of the screen. Approach the second until that one also hurls itself at
    you. Jump it, and you're past them.
    Aaargh, now you'll face the second and worst spike pit. This one also has
    Disappearing Blocks, but this time they're used more in a pattern.
    Also, the hardest thing here is that when you're standing on a platform that's
    directly above the spikes (meaning almost touching the spikes), a platform
    will appear over your head. You have to learn the pattern - jump upwards
    BEFORE the platform appears over your head. If you jump too early you won't
    land on any platform, and if you jump too late, your head will hit the
    platform above and you'll hit the spikes. You encountered this once before,
    remember, in Elec Man's level.
    Just time your jump very good, and you'll do fine. If you die, don't be sad.
    You'll start at the three Bigeyes, so you won't have to walk long to get here
    When you're past it, equip the Ice Slasher before you jump down the hole.
    A Sniper Joe will jump against you, so freeze him before he can hit you.
    Now, jump over the Cutting Wheel that appears and jump over to the second
    platform before the Wheel bounces off the wall and hits you.
    Approach the nearby Super Cutter, and freeze it with the Ice Slasher when its
    high enough in the air so that you can walk under it. Kill the Cutting Wheel
    with one easy shot of the Rolling Cutter. Repeat the Ice Slasher process with
    the second Super Cutter. Now, a Super Cutter with a Cutting Wheel just above
    it will appear. Kill the Cutting Wheel while its in the air, if you can, but
    if you do you'll probably trigger the Super Cutter anyway. Well, use a
    powerful weapon and get rid of the Cutting Wheel, then dodge the Super Cutter
    (you won't have to freeze this one as its high up already).
    Another platform, another Super Cutter with a Cutting Wheel above it.
    Approach them, so they both start moving, then jump over the Cutting Wheel
    as it closes in on you. It'll fall into the gap between the two platforms.
    This Super Cutter is actually so low, that you can jump over it as it moves
    under you. You won't have to freeze this one either, but you can if you want
    to. Then you'll face another Supper Cutter - this one's even lower, so if you
    time good, you can actually stand unharmed in the middle of the circle it
    moves in.
    Use Carry to fetch the Weapon Capsule if you need some Weapon Energy - which
    you probably do. Kill the Cutting Wheel first, with a long-range weapon like
    Thunder Beam. I'd probably use the Weapon Capsule on Ice Slasher or Thunder
    Beam if you are low on them.
    Climb up the ladder, then quickly climb up the next one. If you hesitate, a
    Pipi will come flying in. Then leap to the next ladder, and in the next room,
    equip the Thunder Beam again. Use it on the new Pipi that appears if it
    threatens you, but if you're fast you should manage to slip down the next
    ladder. Climb down, avoid the electricity beams, then kill the next Pipi that
    flies in, or it'll knock you down the ladder. Climb up, then kill the other
    Pipi again.
    ** CHECKPOINT **
    If you need a small Energy Pellet and a 1-Up (which you maybe do as you're
    soon facing the final boss of the game), equip the Atomic Fire (HE) and charge
    it up to the third level before blasting away the wall covering the items.
    Use Carry to get further.
    Now, you can use Carry to reach the platform high in the air, or you can keep
    going. I totally think you should choose the upper path.
    If you do, equip the Atomic Fire again and blast away the second wall there.
    As you fall down, avoid the shots of the Sniper Joe. Then avoid the Changkey
    Maker while you pick up the Weapon Energy to refill your Atomic Fire (you will
    need it on Dr. Wily). Atomic Fire should be completely full now. Use the next
    three Weapon Capsules on Carry, if you want to.
    Now, fall down, and stick to the right wall all the time to avoid spikes.
    Just escape from the Changkey Maker you meet, and then destroy the Scworm
    Makers. These can be hit by your Plasma Cannon, as they're stationed on a
    higher level than you, but I still prefer a powerful weapon like Rolling
    Cutter or Thunder Beam.
    Now, run past the Screw Drivers in the ceiling (or finish them off with
    Thunder Beam), and kill the ones on the ground.
    Get past the electric beam.
    Three Super Cutters? This isn't your day, is it? Equip Ice Slasher and move
    towards them, so they start moving. Freeze them while they're above your head
    (you'll probably have to shoot a couple of times to get them all), and walk
    under them. Now, when you make this final fall, stick to the right wall and
    keep holding right to get an extra life.
    Right then, are you ready to face Doctor Wily himself?
    Go to section 7.C, Boss Strategies, and scroll to the bottom of it
    (where it says Space Node) if you want help on fighting Wily. Good luck.
    Here follows strategies on how to beat every Robot Master (plus Enker and
    Recommended Order here too.
    (For strategies on playing through the levels, check out section 7.B, Level
    Weakness: Rolling Cutter
    Obtain:   Thunder Beam
    Elec Man jumps and runs a little while he's firing his dreaded Thunder Beam;
    an electric beam that sparks over the screen. Try to avoid it, if you get hit,
    it will take a good amount of energy.
    If you've got the Rolling Cutter, fire away. Make it hit him both when it's
    shot and when it's returning to you.
    But if you haven't got it, just use the Plasma Cannon. Even using that weapon
    this is a pretty easy battle, as long as you manage to avoid the Thunder
    Weakness: Thunder Beam
    Obtain:   Ice Slasher
    And here comes the Escimo!
    Ice Man moves back and forth, while he jumps (it's supposed to look like
    jumping, anyway). He fires Ice Slashers frequently. Avoid them as best as you
    can. Remember that the floor is icy, and thus slippery.
    If you've got Thunder Beam, USE IT, Ice Man will take heavy damage from it.
    Weakness: Ice Slasher
    Obtain:   Fire Storm
    Fire Man really is a piece of cake.
    The funny thing here is that he nearly doesn't move at all. He moves when you
    move, copying your moves. Meaning that if you go left, he'll go left as well.
    So, general rule; Don't move. Jumping is fine, but don't push LEFT or RIGHT.
    He'll stand still and shoot a big fireball at you. Jump it and shoot him.
    Repeat the process. As long as you manage to jump over them, you'll be fine.
    If you've got the Ice Slasher, even better. He's toast!
    Weakness: Fire Storm
    Obtain:   Rolling Cutter
    Cut Man doesn't move very fast, but he jumps around a lot.
    He attacks by taking his head scissors off and throw them at you, then
    it returns back to Cut Man like a boomerang. So be sure to dodge it twice.
    Fire at him with the Plasma Cannon as many times as you can, but you should
    use Fire Storm if you've got it. If you use it, make sure you hit Cut Man
    with he fire shield as well for a quick defeat.
    Here's the layout for the Teleport Hatches found in the end of Wily's Castle.
    Each of them brings you to an instant boss battle with the respective Robot:
       _______           _______
      |       |         |       |
      | Quick |         | Bubble|
      |  Man  |         |  Man  |
      |       |         |       |
       -------  _______  -------
      |       ||       ||       |
      | Flash || Enker ||  Heat |
      |  Man  ||       ||  Man  |
      |       ||       ||       |
       ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯  ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯  ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    The Enker hatch in the middle doesn't appear before you've
    defeated all the other four Robot Masters.
    When you defeat a boss, you'll receive a Big Energy Pellet.
    After you've picked it up, walk to the left side of the screen, stand on the
    teleportation device and wait to be teleported back to the Teleportation Room.
    Weakness: Atomic Fire
    Obtain:   Time Stopper
    Flash Man'll run around in the room, using his weapon, the Time Stopper, once
    in a while. If you fire a shot at him, he'll jump.
    Just fire away on him with Ice Slasher, and if that one runs empty, use
    the Plasma Cannon.
    When he uses his Time Stopper, you will be totally frozen - even in mid-air.
    After using the Time Stopper he'll fire with some sort of a Plasma Cannon
    at you. Just try to jump OVER him before he freezes the time, and he won't
    hit you with the Plasma shots, which he just shoots in front of himself.
    Then you can safely land on the other side of him and fire some Ice Slashers
    at him.
    Weakness: Time Stopper
    Obtain:   Quick Boomerang
    He can be quite a pain in the neck, as he's pretty fast (as the name
    suggests), but he's not too fast for Mega Man!
    Fire loose on him with the Plasma Cannon, and when he's lost about
    half or more of his energy, use the Time Stopper to drain the rest of
    his energy away.
    Weakness: Quick Boomerang
    Obtain:   Bubble Lead
    Bubble Man will shoot some Lead Bubbles at you, and while you're busy with
    them, he'll shoot some other shots at you. You might take big damage,
    but whatever you do, don't jump! The room is actually filled with water,
    although you can't see it (Bubble Man is a water Robot Master), so if
    you jump you'll jump way too high to control it properly.
    Just use the newly received Quick Boomerang on him (hold down B to shoot
    three at a time), and make sure each hits him twice. If you run empty of
    the Quick Boomerang (which I don't think you will, they use almost no
    energy), use another weapon like Ice Slasher.
    Not a very big deal.
    Weakness: Bubble Lead
    Obtain:   Atomic Fire
    As long as you have Bubble Lead, this lad won't be a problem at all.
    Shoot one bubble against him, and he'll take significant damage.
    Then he'll teleport to the other side of the room (where you're standing),
    so jump over him as he teleports, and repeat the process.
    The fire he shoots out isn't very dangerous.
    However, if you hit Heat Man himself, you'll receive a great deal
    of damage! So make sure you jump over him as he teleports.
    Weakness: None
    Obtain:   Mirror Buster
    Enker is a weird Robot - only the Plasma Cannon can harm him, and
    even that does he use against you.
    He holds up his lance, and if you shoot at it, the shots are drawn up
    to it like a magnet. Enker takes damage, but his sword also absorbs the
    plasma shots.
    After some seconds, he shoots an arrow-shaped energy beam at you. The size of
    the arrow depends on how much plasma energy Enker absorbed. Bigger arrows
    means more damage to you if you hit it.
    Meaning, the more you damage Enker, the more will he be able to damage you.
    Despite this, Enker is really not a big deal. Just use your gun.
    When he shoots back at you, jump over the shot.
    Weakness: Atomic Fire
    Obtain:   None
    So, there he is at last - Dr. Wily.
    His machine opens up its hatch and shoots out Cutting Wheels.
    To beat this first form, stand pretty close to the machine (but not so close
    that you're not able to avoid the Cutting Wheels).
    If he shoots out a high one, walk under it, and if he shoots out
    a low one (along the floor), jump over it.
    Shoot the hatch with either the Plasma Cannon or Atomic Fire. He has a slight
    weakness to Atomic Fire, even more if it's charged, but as it can be pretty
    hard to charge the weapon while avoiding the Cutting Wheels, I'd suggest you
    use the Plasma Cannon, or just shoot at him with a not-charged Atomic Fire.
    Weakness: Mirror Buster
    Obtain:   None
    As the battle starts, press and hold B while the Mirror Buster is active.
    Mega Man will form a little shield in front of himself.
    Now the Wily Machine gets a big claw. It will be launched against you, try to
    avoid it.
    Then, when Wily shoots a beam at you, make sure it hits your shield, and it
    will be reflected back at Wily. Just repeat this process.
    Don't let the shield hit the claw, however; that will drain the shield's
    energy. And intelligent enough, the game is designed so that you MUST have
    the Mirror Buster to defeat this boss.
    So if he attacks you with the claw, it might be wise to unequip Mirror Buster.
    Mega Man is able to acquire the weapon of a Robot Master he defeats
    (these weapons are known as 'Master Weapons' or simply 'weapons').
    Through the sub menu, you can choose what weapon Mega Man will use (press the
    START button to access the sub menu).
    However, all Master Weapons consumes energy from their own little energy bar
    on the bottom of the screen. When the energy meter is empty, the weapon can no
    longer be used. However, the weapon energy can be refilled if you pick up a
    Weapon Capsule while the respective weapon is active (see section 4, ITEMS).
    In this game, Mega Man will also receive an adapter.
    Adapters are used in the exact same way as weapons, but they do something else
    than dealing damage.
    To read more about the Robot Masters you obtain these weapons from,
    see the ROBOT MASTERS section.
    The letters in the parentheses (the ()'s) are the letters the weapons are
    shown as in the Sub Menu. Throughout this Guide, I will however use the full
    name for every weapon.
    If you care, the letters in the parentheses are the two first letters of the
    name of the Robot Master you got the weapon from (not counting Plasma Cannon
    and Carry).
    All weapons will, when it hits an enemy, just continue through the enemy.
    This makes it possible to hit multiple enemies with one shot.
    The only exception is the Plasma Cannon, whose shots disappear on impact with
    an enemy.
    All weapons will however go through walls, even the Plasma Cannon.
    Plasma Cannon   (P)
    This is Mega Man's standard weapon. You have this from the beginning.
    Mega Man will fire a tiny Plasma shot in the direction he's facing.
    It can be fired unlimited times, but only three shots can be in the screen at
    the same time. This isn't a very big problem, though, as the Game Boy screen
    is so tiny the shots will disappear out of the screen pretty fast.
    Rolling Cutter  (CU)
    Obtained from Cut Man.
    Mega Man fires a scissor blade like a boomerang - he chucks it out, and it
    will return to him. Therefore one shot can do damage more than once on
    Only one shot can be in the screen at a time.
    Ice Slasher     (IC)
    Obtained from Ice Man.
    Mega Man shoots an ice spear straight forward that will freeze (stop in its
    tracks) some enemies and damage others.
    Only one shot can be in the screen at the same time.
    Thunder Beam    (EL)
    Obtained from Elec Man.
    Will fire three beams of electricity - one up, one down and one in the
    direction Mega Man's facing. This way you can damage enemies above or below
    Only one (or three, depends on your view) can be in the screen at the
    same time.
    Fire Storm      (FI)
    Obtained from Fire Man.
    Mega Man fires a big fireball in the direction he's facing, and while the shot
    is on the screen, a fire shield will spin around Mega Man, hurting all enemies
    less than one block away from him.
    The shield spins around Mega Man four times, damaging an enemy hit by it
    three or four times.
    One shot can be in the screen at the same time.
    Carry           (CA)
    Obtained when you have defeated all the first four Robot Masters,
    Elec Man, Cut Man, Ice Man and Fire Man, in any row.
    Mega Man creates a small platform directly underneath his feet, which he can
    stand on. This way you can avoid hitting spikes you're falling directly
    Carry uses energy, one unit per second, as long as a platform exists.
    The platform will disappear after approx. 3 seconds. So, doing calculations,
    each platform will take 3 energy units.
    Only one platform can be in the screen at the same time.
    Quick Boomerang (QU)
    Obtained from Quick Man.
    Mega Man throws some small boomerangs that will return to him after travelling
    for a short time. Limited range.
    Hold down the button for a while to throw up to three boomerangs.
    Three is also the maximum amount of boomerangs that can be on the screen at
    the same time.
    Bubble Lead     (BU)
    Obtained from Bubble Man.
    Mega Man throws out a big, heavy bubble that will roll along the floor.
    One can be on the screen at the same time.
    Time Stopper    (FL)
    Obtained from Flash Man.
    Time will stop, and almost all enemies (including some Robot Masters) will
    stop in their tracks and some of them will even lose energy as they are
    paralyzed. However, the Time Stopper will lose energy all the time as it's
    active, and you can't change weapon or fire while it's active either. You
    can't turn it off, so you'll just have to wait until the whole energy meter
    is consumed.
    Atomic Fire     (HE)
    Obtained from Heat Man.
    Shoots out a fireball.
    Hold down the button to charge it up, it can be charged up to three levels.
    Higher the level, more damage is caused, but more energy is consumed.
    This weapon can also be used to destroy certain walls (found in the Wily
    One can be on the screen at the same time.
    Mirror Buster   (EN)
    Obtained from Enker.
    A small shield is created in front of Mega Man. This shield will repel some
    enemy shots and reflect others, to damage the enemy with its own weapon.
    The passwords only store what Robot Masters you've defeated (of the first
    four). There are no Energy Tanks or other stuff that the Passwords need to
    However, as I said, the Passwords only remember which Robot Masters you've
    defeated of the FIRST FOUR, so the last Password there is will only bring
    you to the start of Wily's Skull Castle - you'll have to play through
    Wily Level 1 and 2, and defeat all the five robots in the Teleport Hatches,
    and THEN defeat Wily, all in one go.
    To input a password, choose the option PASS WORD on the game's title screen.
    A password grid will appear (4x4 squares, from A to D on the horizontal rows,
    and from 1 to 4 on the vertical columns).
    Each password consists of 5 dots.
    Move the cursor around in the password grid with the D-pad (left, right, up,
    down), and place a dot in a square with the A button. Remove a dot with B.
    Look at the below passwords and input the dots in the correct positions
    (example: B3 is the square that's in the B row, and in the 3 column).
    A3, B1, B3, C2, C4  -  Nobody defeated
    A2, A4, B3, D1, D2  -  Elec Man Defeated
    A1, A2, B2, B3, D4  -  Ice Man defeated
    A1, B1, B2, C4, D2  -  Fire Man defeated
    A4, B3, C4, D3, D4  -  Cut Man defeated

    A1, A2, B3, C4, D4  -  Ice Man, Fire Man and Cut Man defeated
    A2, A3, B4, C2, C3  -  Everybody defeated  -  Skull Castle
    - When hurt by an enemy, Mega Man will flash for some seconds. He cannot be
      damaged while he's flashing, and will walk through most enemies. Use this to
      your advantage. While flashing, he can even walk on stuff like spikes!
    - All Robot Masters are vulnerable to a certain Weapon. Find out
      which Weapon works well on what Robot Master (these are displayed in the
      ROBOT MASTERS section), and defeat the Robots in the right order for a
      super-easy defeat!
    - If you lose all your lives, the Game is Over. Or is it?
      You have an unlimited amount of 'continues' - after you get Game Over, you
      can restart the level you died on by choosing 'Continue' from the Game Over
      screen (by pressing B). You will still have all the Weapons you had when you
      died, and you will again have 2 lives.
    - If you're plummeting down somewhere, have Carry equipped. If you see that
      you're falling towards spikes, press B, and Mega Man will create a platform
      beneath his feet.
    - If you're slipping on ice, such as on Ice Man's level, jump. You'll stop
