Extra livesSent in by Justin Morgan For quick extra lives, go to Gemini Man's stage and travel until you find a robotic duck that releases small penguins. Stand in front of it, leaving a little space, and keep blasting the never-ending supply of penguins, only stopping to grab lives and needed power-ups left by them.
How do you defeat the first Dr. Wily?Sent in by Viper-X27 When you first see Dr. Wily, he's in a machine with 2 pin-like legs. To defeat the first part use the Hard Knuckle on the gun on the bottom of the "Pinbot". You'll have to jump and shoot at just the right time. His shots are easy to avoid. When you destroy the gun, Wily appears in the machine. To easily beat him, use the Rush Jet. Fly up to his level and shoot rapidly. You can avoid his shots easily with the Rush Jet. Follow these tips and he'll be defeated. When you fight Gamma, first stand under him and attack with the Shadow Blade, after the first head is gone, attack the second head by climbing to the highest platform and jump at his Wily's face with the Top Spin and he'll be history.
Get the Rush Jet or Rush MerineSent in by Greg Roberts at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! I discovered a glitch that lets you get either the Rush Jet or Rush Merine before you defeat the appropriate bosses. To get the Rush Merine you have to defeat Spark man and be quick, just move your icon to where the RM would be and press start. You'll have the Rush Merine, but it will be empty, so you need to fill it up and use it. Repeat the procedure after you defeat Shadow man to get the Rush Jet.
Shadow Man's stage tipSent in by Craig Davis In ShadowMan's stage, the lights sometimes go out and you must fight in the dark. To turn the lights back on, either run until the darkness-generating machine is off-screen or use Rush as a trampoline to jump up and destroy it.
InvincibleSent in by Jean-Philippe Larivire If you lose all your life while in a hole (by getting hit by a falling enemy or enemies weapon), you'll be invincible (however, you won't be able to shoot mega blaster beams and won't beprotected against the things on the walls that make you lose a life in one hit). Warning! If you regain energy, you'll lose your invincibility.

Slow-motionSent in by Clinton Bartlett Holding up on Controller 2 will cause all animation to go into "slow-motion." Movement will continue at the same rate, but the animation will be slowed. This may present a problem, as enemies will advance at the same speed as before, but Mega Man will not move until he stops the "leaning forward" animation and begins to run. This can be used along with the super-jump by holding up and right.
Freeze the bossSent in by Clinton Bartlett Just as a boss fight begins, hold up and press A on Controller 2. This will freeze everything. You will be able to shoot and jump up. Kill the boss while he is frozen.
HintsSent in by Clinton Bartlett at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! While doing the super-jump trick, you cannot die in pits. Also, if an enemy moves across the top of the screen while Mega Man is hiding in a pit, Mega Man will take damage. If his energy meter runs out, he will be completely impervious to damage. He cannot fire his Arm Cannon, though, and it ends if he picks up any energy pellets.
Weird stuffSent in by Clinton Bartlett Using the Super-jump technique, before the Proto Man encounter in Gemini Man's stage, slide into the area where Proto Man will beam down and before the slide ends, super-jump through the platform he will stand on. You will hear the entire Proto Man intro music, but nothing after that. Also, a lot of weird things will happen. Try it and see.
Jump very highSent in by Clinton Bartlett If you hold Right, on Controller 2, and then press A on Controller 1, you will jump very high.
