View FMV sequences/bosses in voice test

To view all FMV sequences and bosses (including Cutman and Woodman) in the voice test menu, highlight the "Bonus Mode" selection on the start screen, then hold L and R and press Start.

Hint: Extra life

For an extra lift, shoot a mega-ball into Clown Man's mouth at the beginning of its level.

Hint: Extra health

In the first stage (after the underwater passageway), keep going to the left until you find a large health sphere. Go to it to regain most of your health.

Hint: Defeating Dr. Wily

When you fight Dr. Wily for the first time, equip yourself with the Arrow Shot equipped (an item that can be created from bolts) and have Astro Crush as your Mega Power. As you begin your battle, notice the thing that spins around, shoots about five multiple shots at you, rolls at you and returns, bounces up and down, shoots a big projectile in the air and then drops down to make two smaller ones. Sometimes the mouth on the ship will open to fire a big laser. When this occurs, fire a charged shot at the mouth. The only time that you should use the Astro Crush is when that circular thing fires the multiples shots at you. These shots are difficult to avoid but you will not get hurt by them if you use the power. When it rolls at you, jump early. When it bounces, wait for it to bounce twice then slide under it. When it fires the big shot into the air, slide to a different location as the shot will go where you were standing, then jump when the two smaller shots go across the floor. If you follow these steps and exercise caution, you can defeat Dr. Wily the first time without taking any damage. For the second battle, save the Rush Health option. All of Wily's attacks are very difficult to avoid.

Hint: Defeating the Giant Clam

If you return to the intro stage and fight the Giant Clam again (this will not work on the first encounter), the fastest and easiest way is to use the Astro Crush one time. All of its health will go away.
