Fighting the bossesSent in by Nobie at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! The best way to defeat the Dragondroid is with a charged up atomic fire and several little blasts afterwards. You'll destroy hi in a hurry. The best weapons to use in the stages, not the Dr. Wily Skull Castle are Bubble Man: Metal Blade (4 hits) Tip: Don't jump too high and just let him have it. Air Man: Leaf Shield (2 hits) Tip: Jump over and run under air shooters and get a clear shot. When he starts jumping, stand all the way to the left, because he'll stop right in front of you, and then turn around to shoot, making him a sitting duck. Quick Man: Time Stopper (Full meter knocks off half of Quick man's energy) Tip: Run and shoot. Keep running and jump over the boomerangs when they converge and spread. He's weak, so pummel him. Heat Man: Bubble Lead (4 hits) Tip: Shoot as soon as possible, and then jump over his Atomic Fire. Repeat. watch out, Crash bombs RESTORE his energy. Wood Man: Atomic Fire (1 fully charged hit) Tip: Jump forward over his shields and fire rapidly! crash bombs can go through his shield. Metal Man: Quick Boomerangs (4 hits) Tip: Run at him so he jumps over and launches 1 metal blade. Jump in between the Metal Blade and fire at metal Man. Repeat. And remember, other than that, he fires only when you do. Flash Man: Crash Bombs (2 explosions) Tip: Jump just as you hear the pling sound, and always stay above him. Never make contact, unless you want to sacrifice energy and lure him into a crash bomb "time bomb". Crash man: Air Shooter (2 hits) Tip: Jump and shoot at point blank range for guaranteed shots. the safer way is too shoot, and when he jumps over and launches a crash bomb, run away from the bomb and shoot him in mid-air. Remember, only one crash bomb can be on the screen at a time.
Sent in by Justin Robot Dragon: Use Quick Boomerang. Try to stay on the right-most blocks. Detachable Walls: Use Metal Blade. (Remember you can aim in any of eight directions!) Guts Dozer: Use Bubble Lead or Quick Boomerangs. You can safely stand on the front end. Orb Room: Use Crash Bombs. Be careful if you blow all the walls away you won't have enough Crash Bomb energy to take care of the orbs. You can only afford to take out the two walls that directly block the orbs (use the Items to reach the rest), and even then you must enter the room with the Crash Bomber fully charged. You can, however, take out some or all of the walls, kill yourself, then recharge the Crash Bomber and come back to take care of the orbs. (The orbs will come back the walls won't.) Also, if you're having a hard time dodging their shots, try hitting START rapidly right before they connect, and they'll go right through you! Wily 1st time: Use Metal Blade or your arm cannon. Wily 2nd time: Use Bubble Lead. Whatever you do, don't make contact with the alien doing so will hack off about half of your energy. Notice the pattern in which the creature moves (it's the same pattern that its holographic projector makes after you defeat it, of course, since the alien was just a hologram). It's moving in a figure 8. Keep this in mind and you should escape with hardly a scratch.
Wood Man is invincible when using his Leaf Shield, except to the Crash Bomb. If the bomb misses a leaf, it will pass through and hit once. If it hits a leaf, it will explode and the explosions will hit multiple times. On a similar note, try luring Flash Man into a corner and latch a Crash Bomb on the wall. As it explodes, it can hit him about 3 times if he stays in place.
OrderSent in by Justin It's hard to suggest an order because unlike most of the games in the series, this one has no real pattern of "Use this weapon on this robot and use that robot's weapon on the next robot..." on and on down the line. In Mega Man 2 there are tons of ways you can complete the levels and still have the weapon you need for the next battle. Here's just one of those ways. (For beginners, you might want to start with Air Man instead.) Metal Man (Use Metal Blade for a one-hit victory) Air Man (Use arm cannon or Leaf Shield. Try standing behind him.) Crash Man (Use Air Shooter) Bubble Man (Use Metal Blade) Heat Man (Use Bubble Lead) Wood Man (Use a powered-up Atomic Fire or detonate a Crash Bomb on Wood Man's Leaf Shield, not on the Robot Master himself. Either way can get you a single-hit victory in normal mode, though doing it with a Crash Bomb is a bit more difficult to pull off.) Flash Man (Use Metal Blade) Quick Man (Use Crash Bombs and/or the Time Stopper. Try firing a Crash Bomb at a wall and standing right below it. Quick Man will come for you and instead land on the explosion!)
Stars changeAfter you select which stage you are going to, and the screen that shows the boss of that stage is on, press and hold the A and B Buttons, then press Start. The stars above and below the picture of the boss will change to the little bird-like creatures that inhabit many of the stages.
TricksIf you pause in the middle of a jump, you'll reset Mega Man's downward velocity. If you press Start rapidly at the height of a jump, you can coast for long distances. This also makes Mega Man "phase out", causing most bullets to fly through you without harm. Use the above trick at the beginning of the final stage to fall to the right. Then, keep running through the cave without stopping. You should get through the dripping acid unharmed.
Dr. Wily stage tipsThe fourth Dr. Wily stage is laced with holographic floors. To spot floors that aren't real, use the Bubble Lead. For the boss of this stage, when they all fire at once, try pausing and unpause the game. The bullets will pass right through Mega Man. Use the above trick at the beginning of the final stage to fall to the right. Then, keep running through the cave without stopping. You should get through the dripping acid unharmed.
Get lots of power ups and 1upsTry using the Leaf Shield in areas where enemies will keep coming and coming. Lots of power-ups and even 1-ups will be left behind.
