Effect: Extra life:
2656 6418 3242
Now go to Armored Armadillo stage. Before the boss gate , climb over the top to find found a big life power-up. Collect it, then exit the stage. Repeat this less than five times and you can find a hidden weapon next to the big life power-up. Note: Make sure the spare life is full.


Method 1:
Get all items except for the Hadouken. Fill up all four energy tanks and enter the Armored Armadillo's level. Get on the cart just before the end, then jump over to the wall. Shimmy up the wall, then quit the level. Repeat this approximately five or six times until a capsule appears. Enter the capsule to gain the Hadouken. To use it, press Down, Forward, Y after your character is at full health.
Method 2: Get every item, then successfully complete the Armored Armadillo level four times. Your life meter must be full at the end of each time. On the fourth time, climb up the wall at the end of the level to find a capsule that contains Dr. Light. He will give you the fireball attack. To use this, your life and all of your abilities must be full. Rotate the D-pad and press Y. Note: This status will not save and must be unlocked again with each new game session.
Method 3: You must have Acceleration and Helmet. Go to the Flame Mammoth stage. Get to the beginning part of the miners that throw picks at you. Notice on the left and up high are a few sections of wall that are darker then the rest. Press A, B to dash jump and break through that wall. Inside is a capsule that will pop up, and you get the Hadouken.
Method 4: Get all the parts, sub-tanks, and heart tanks. Go to the Armored Armadillo stage. When you get to the last cart ride, jump. You will see the capsule by the energy. Go inside. To do the Fireball, press Down, Down/Forward, Forward.


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.


Hold Shoot until Mega Man turns purple, use L + R to select the desired weapon, then release.
Ice: The ice shotgun will create an ice sled that you can ride. It will break apart when it hits an enemy that has armor.
Tornado: The tornado will create a giant vertical tornado. It will not suck people in, but it will kill anyone who touches it.
Missiles: The missiles will turn into blade-like objects that will have more of an effect on enemies. They are also homing.
Spark: The spark will create two walls on both sides of you that will kill anything on contact, except for Bosses.
Sting: The sting will make you invincible for a short amount of time. You can walk through enemies, but not walls.
Shield: The shield will create a giant shield around you, but it will shut off after hitting something.
Blades: The blades will turn into giant versions that make a loop before going off the screen.
Fire: The fire will create a wall of fire that will go along on the ground until it reaches an edge. Note: It takes awhile to charge up so do not use it during Boss battles.


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.

Have Mega Man sit:
Begin game play on Storm Eagle's stage. Pause game play and press A, B, A, A, A, B, B, A, B, Select.
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.
Password warning:
You cannot save the Hadouken (fire ball) in a password, nor can you save where you were in the fortress using a password. You will have to always get the Hadouken again and redo the fortress.
Extra lives in Armored 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.
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.
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.
