UNLOCK THE CHEAT MODE
During game play type:
xstuff
If successful you will have all X armor, all abilities (Cutter man's scissor throw, etc.) at maximum, all four Energy Tanks filled, full health capacity, and all Bosses completed except for the last three inside the Main Fortress.

E-TANK LOCATIONS
Flame Mammoth stage:
Go until reaching the little opponents that throw the picks at you. Instead of going to the exit, go up the platforms until you reach the extra life. Dash left and jump to find an E-tank.
Storm Eagle stage: Go to the part just before the hover platforms. When you see the opponent on the rising platform, kill it. Ride the platform to the building in the air, and shoot through the glass.
Armored Armadillo stage: When you reach the first cliff with the miner machine, set the machine off, climb the wall, and run to where the machine started.
Spark Mandrill stage: You will need to get the Boomerang Cutters first. Go to where you can climb a ladder up or down. Go down and destroy the defense units. Do not go up the next ladder. Instead, equip your Boomerangs and jump straight into the air and fire one. It will catch the E- tank and return it to you.

DEFEATING HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

Armored Armadillo:
Shoot the Armored Armadillo with your electric spark gun when he is vulnerable. It will electrocute him, all his armor will fall off, and he will be much easier to kill.
Flame Mammoth: Get the Boomerang Cutter and go to Flame Mammoth's stage. When you reach him, use the Bommerang Cutter on him. After a few hits, his trunk will fall off, and he will not be able to shoot out oil or change the conveyor belt's direction.
Launch Octopus: To get rid of Launch Octopus's Piranha "homing missiles", use the Boomerang Cutter a few times to cut off his arms.
Storm Eagle: Get the Dash Boots on Chill Penguin's level. Then, go to Storm Eagle's level and proceed until you battle him. When he is on foot, he might spit out mini-eagles at you or try to blow you off the plane. When he spits the mini-eagles out, dodge them with Dash, then destroy them. If he tries to blow you off the plane, dash towards him and fire at him. Keep firing until he flies back up. When he swoops down at you, keep dodging him. Repeat this process until he is defeated.

GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

Get Upgraded X-Buster early:
The Helmet, Boots, and some luck are required for this trick. You usually get the Upgraded X-Buster from Zero, but you can get it much earlier than that. In the Flaming Mammoth Stage, there is a part where mine workers throw picks at you, and where you get the heart and sub-tank. Before you enter there, there is a small location that you can break with your helmet just at the entrance of that room. With luck, you can reach the place with your boots and break the blocks with your helmet. Then, climb straight up to get it.
Extra lives in Armadillo stage: At the very beginning of Armored Armadillo's stage, there is a cart that goes down for a short distance before leveling out again. On the ceiling are a few places where the roof juts out a bit. On each of these is a bat. On around the fifth one is a small black ball that when you approach reveals itself to be another bat, though you do not see these anywhere else. They are actually visitors from some of the original Megaman games. You cannot shoot them while they are in ball form. Wait for them to start flying towards you. Also, these bats happen to give you an extra life quite often, so this is a good place to stock up.
Armor upgrade in Sting Chameleon stage: Before you enter the tunnel with the falling rocks, climb up the wall above it. There will be a green machine there. Fight it. Note: Its weak point is the head. When you defeat it, a capsule will appear from the ground. The armor upgrade will be inside. Note: This will also stop the falling rocks in the tunnel.
Energy Extender at Sting Chameleon stage: Go to the place where the rocks fall from the roof. Do not go in. There will be a hole there. Slide down it. On the right side, there should be brown bricks. Jump from side to side until they all break. When you are done breaking bricks, stand there and dash forward before you are at the edge. If you make it across, the Energy Extender should be there on a platform.
Energy Extender at Launch Octopus stage: Go forward until you see a tornado-like thing that goes up. It is blue in color. Get on one and you will go up out of the ocean. If you do not see a ship with oil cans on it and little flying robots that appear, keep going forward. If you see more, go on them until you see a ship. It will be on the right side. On the front of it is something that resembles a blue circle. Shoot it with your fire until it starts smoking. Stay on it. It will sink. Wait until it touches the bottom. You will fight a metal snake. Defeat it and it will explode. When it is done exploding, keep going to the right and the Energy Extender should be there.
