With this cheat you will begin the game with X's Ultimate Armour, which is very much identical to the same armour from MegaMan X5.
On the Title Screen press Start.
Now on the main menu before starting a new game press:
Left, Left, Left, Right.
You will hear a sound to confirm.

With this cheat, when you rescue Zero after defeating him in battle, you will play as the Nightmare version of Zero. Nightmare Zero has all of Zero's normal moves, but he is much more powerful.
On the Title Screen press Start.
Now on the main menu before starting a new game press:
L1, L1, L1, R2.
You will hear a sound to confirm.
Now start a new game.

Amazon area. After falling into the first cave you will notice a path behind a Praying Mantis Maverick at the bottom of the drop.
Helmet: Central Museum. In one of the random totem pole areas.
X-buster: Weapons Center. After defeating the gigantic Maverick, a portal will appear. Once inside the portal, go left instead of right.
Armor: Laser Institute. At one point in the level, you will see a laser activated door in the floor. Direct the laser to it and open it. Inside will be a large system of lasers to correct. Once finished. you will open another door in the floor. Drop down and go left (you can go through the wall). Jump across the ledge beyond the wall to find the capsule.

In Rainy Turtloid's stage, when you get to the inside of the tree trunk, there are five narrow passages with spikes on the ceiling and floor. Three are on the left side and two are on the right side. The upper right passage leads to the Shadow Armor body program. You will need the Blade Armor and use the Mach Dash to get through the narrow passageway. Make sure to release Right or you will walk into the second set of spikes. Repeat this to go through the second set of spikes.
Leg: You find this in Blizzard Wolfang's stage. Shortly, after passing the area with vertical avalanches and pillars of ice you have to stand on, you will reach a downward slope to a ladder. Above the ladder is a ledge. Zero can double jump to that ledge. X with the Blade Armor can Mach Dash straight up and land on the ledge.
Arms: You find this in Blaze Heatnix's stage. After the second mini-Boss Donut Mechaniloid, you will get to a vertical area with an upper and lower door. You will notice the ceiling is quite high above the upper door.
Head: If you have not come from Metal Shark Player's stage, you will need the Blade Armor's Mach Dash ability to get to the armor capsule. You must climb either the left or right side of the vertical chamber. Once you see the left or right ledges, dash jump off the wallm then Mach Dash upwards and land on the ledge. Continue to climb up, and you will see the capsule.


Use the Magma Sword on Gate when he throws his spheres. Hit the spheres so that they explode and turn into smaller spheres. They will hit him back.
Infinity Mijinion: Note: Zero is required. First, destroy the doors that power Illumina. Then when the crystal appears, keep running to the right. You will reach Infinity Mijinion's Boss doors. Then, just use Zero's Z Blaster until Mijinion has been defeated.
Rainy Turtloid: Equip the Blade Armor and Ultimate Buster part. Fire the Ice Weapon and Mach-Dash up. You will fire icicles and one will hit Turtloid in the head, freezing him and causing heavy damage. The fully-charged ice weapon is Turtloid's only weakness; the Ultimate Buster, which fires all fully-charged shots, makes this a lot easier. if you do not have it, use Quick-Charge instead.
Zero: The Z Saber that you are given as a secondary weapon is his weakness. Zero's special attacks will be neutralized and he fades out and reappears on the other side of the screen.


Method 1:
The following trick requires the Ultimate Armor and Zero in your party. Charge up Ultimate Armor X's Buster and fire it at High Max while he is blinking. Then, immediately use the Giga Crush on him. Three or four hits are required to kill him. When you win, you can skip all the Bosses and go directly to Gate's level.
Method 2: After getting Zero, go through the teleporters and find High Max with Zero. Make sure to have both Sub-tanks full before facing him. Use the Sharks weapon with Zero. Take your time facing him -- it takes awhile to figure out his attacks and how to get close to him.
Method 3: To defeat High Max with the Shadow Armor, get close to him and hit him with a charged attack. This makes defeating High Max in the final level fairly easy, and any other time you face him.
Method 4: To defeat High Max with Zero (whether Nightmare or not), you must first obtain the weapon from Blaze Heatnix. Get close to High Max then use Shoezan (Up + Attack). This will stun him. Then, just attack, either with his Jumping Spinning Slash, his Jumping Slash, or his combo. It should not take too long to defeat him, and if you dodge High Max's attacks well, you should not need anymore than just Zero with the Shoezan.
Method 5: After acquiring Zero, choose the Falcon Armor at the character selection screen. Go to the teleporters to High Max. Before he fires the three waves of energy balls, hit him with a fully charged Buster Shot. This will make him vulnerable. Afterwards, hit him with any special weapon (they take off the same amount of damage on him). After you hit him, he will either chase you with a shield on or fire a huge ball. To dodge the shield chase, just duck. To dodge the ball, jump on the wall and over it or him. Repeat these steps until High Max is defeated. You do not need to find all of Dr. Light's armor parts to defeat him. After you win, an intermission sequence will begin and you will have access to a new level, the Secret Laboratory.
Method 6: Use the following trick to defeat High Max with Zero and no sub tanks. This strategy requires that you obtain more than half the heart tanks for Zero. It also helps if you have a sub-tank. When the fight begins, dash to the other side of High Max, making sure he fires four fireballs by the time you are at the corner, and four more while you climb up the wall. Then, dash to your left and use Magma Blade to paralyze him. Next, jump and attack him. He will get injured and fly up. When he descends, he will do one of two things. If he appears to be charging a ball with his fist, double jump over him and then use Magma Blade while he is in the bottom corner of the field. Use the Z-Buster, as it takes more damage. If he surrounds himself with something, he will be invincible. This takes a lot of damage, so stay away from corners as you will receive no damage if you duck. Repeat the process until his life is low. He will surround himself with some fireballs and bombard you non-stop with them. Just jump and keep performing Ensuizan (Down + Triangle) This will result in some damage and eventually he will die, as he only does this attack when low on health. Note: Do not try to fight High Max in Blizzard Wolfgang's stage as it will be more difficult and you cannot to jump on the walls because of the ice.

To easily defeat any Boss or mini-Boss, enable the "X's Ultimate Armor" code. Get to the Boss and use Giga Attack two or three times. Also, use this strategy to defeat High Max. Hit him with a charge shot while he is flashing, then immediately use Giga Attack on him. Do this three or four times to kill him.


Each effect is neutralized in almost in all cases by the same weapon it comes from. In the case of the raining magma, blow it up with ShouenZan or Magma Blade. For iced floors, use Hyoroga/Ice Burst. For gnats, use Yammark Option. For iron blocks, use Metal Anchor/Rakukojin. For soul spirits, use Laser Shield. Finally, red crates can be blown up with SentsuiZan/Ground Dash; black and blue ones can be moved with the same weapon. The rain and the spotlights cannot be neutralized.

Find Zero with the teleporters and fight him. He will join you after he is defeated.
Easy attack with Zero: Press Attack and Dash continuously with Zero.
Zero's best attacks: First, you have his normal three slash combo. This is best used with the first two slashes repeatedly and is done by tapping X, X, wait until he begins to put his weapon away about a second later, then tap X(2) again. Keep doing this as many times as needed. Instead of using his spinning jump slash which engulfs his whole body, use his normal jump slash without the double jump. Ensuizan, however, is one of his best attacks. It is basically the jumping spin slash wherever you want it.
Slash combo with X: This trick can be done with any of X's armors except the Shadow Armor. Go to the controller configuration screen and turn on the "Auto-Fire" feature. Play the game normally. Whenever you want to make slashing combos, make sure you are not directly next to a wall and have a comfortable position for Dash (R1 recommended). Hold Slash as soon as the saber touches the ground, but before it starts to get small, press Dash. This will cancel the slash and start a new one. You can use this technique to perform slash combos similar to Zero's from Megaman X4 and Megaman X5.
Stronger Z-Saber slash: When using the Blade armor for X, instead of pressing Triangle, use Up + Square.
Storm Eagle appearance: Play as X, and charge up the Metal Anchor all the way. When released, a metallic version of Storm Eagle from Megaman X1 will rain down on your enemies.
Sting Chameleon appearance: When fighting Metal Shark Player as Zero, he will use a move and Sting Chameleon from Megaman X1 will appear and attack.
Magna Centipede appearance: When fighting Metal Shark Player, he will sometimes call Magna Centipide from Megaman X2.
Blast Hornett: When fighting Metal Shark Player, he resurrects Reploids from previous MegaMan X games to help him. He will rarely call up Blast Hornett from Megaman X3. Blast Hornett fires a large wave of mechanoid hornets at your character when he is summoned. After a few waves he will disappear.
Keep the charge in the Magma Blade: Equip the Falcon Armor then enter any stage. Select the weapon and charge it. Then, release Square. Hold Square just before the birds appear and you will keep the charge. Note: This only works when X is in the Falcon Armor.
Virus advantages: When playing as X, if you get hit by the Sigma Viruses you obviously will lose health. However, when playing Zero, he will gain full health if this happens. This is very useful when running very low on health when playing Zero.
Super high jump: While you are using the Shadow Armor or have the Ice Attack with Zero, hold Up and press Jump while you are dashing. You will do the normal high jump, but you will be dashing as in a Dash Jump.
Stop roof from lowering in Metal Shark's stage: You can stop the lowering roof by getting the big robot and walking through the level. At one point you will see a large garbage pile. It is the tallest one. Jump up there and get out of the robot. The roof will only go down until it hits the robot, and you can easily make it to the lower area.
Easy Nightmare Soul gain: After defeating all eight Mavericks, go to a stage that you can get to the teleporter fairly quickly and easily (such as Infinity Mijinion). Get to the Boss (not the main one, the one where you fight Zero or High Max). You should find Dynamo there. Get next to him and use the Meteor Rain attack (Ensuizan for Zero) twice. Dynamo should drop a Nightmare Orb worth 200 Souls. You can make him do this three times before he goes away for a total of 600 Souls. You can do this as many times as you needed.
