Hint: E Tank

To get one of the E Tanks, go to the Cyber level and get the S rank. To do this, jump on the platform that does not have an enemy. Go to Ray's stage area 2 and survive until you see two boxes, a space, and one box. In that space is the other E tank.

Hint: W Tank

To get the W Tank, go to Snow Base area 2. Destroy all of the ice blocks until you reach a platform that leads you left or right. Go left and destroy the ice blocks. You will eventually find the W tank.

Hint: Huge heart container

To find a huge heart container, go to Frost Walrus' stage and go to the end of the first part where you are sliding on the snow that crumbles. Climb up the wall and you should see a container that looks like a huge heart. If you are using X, use the web spiders ability when you are on the wall then use your boots to float over to the web. Then, jump onto the ledge were the heart is located. If you are using Zero it will be more difficult. Go to the same part of Frost Walrus' stage and climb the wall. When you are at the top, use the double jump ability to make it on to the platform with the heart.

Hint: Defeating the Bosses as Zero

The following is the best order in which to defeat the Bosses when playing as Zero.

  1. Slash Beast
  2. Web Spider
  3. Frost Walrus
  4. Magma Dragoon
  5. Cyber Peacock
  6. Storm Owl
  7. Split Mushroom
  8. Jet Stringray

Hint: Defeating the Spider Boss

To defeat the Spider Boss, dash slide away to dodge his webs, then jump over it.

Hint: Defeating the General

To defeat the General, ue the twin slashers (Slash Beast weapon).

Hint: Defeating the Colonel

To defeat the Colonel, use the ice attack with Zero, not on top of him, but directly next to him. It does the most damage.

Hint: Defeating Cyber Peacock

To defeat Cyber Peacock with Zero, use the Z-Saber Enhancement (Ryuenjin attack) you get from defeating Magma Dragoon.

Hint: Defeating Double

To defeat Double, use the Double Cyclone.

Hint: Defeating Iris

To defeay Iris, use the fire attack on her with Zero when the huge diamond object comes out of her.

Hint: Defeating Magma Dragoon

Upon receiving the armour suit at area 2, continue playing normally. Then, when you get to the part where you have to jump higher than the suit allows, do not get out. Instead, go in the lava and move forward as quickly as possible, breaking the box things in front of you. You will begin the battle with Magma Dragoon in the suit. Attack him until the suit explodes. By this time, his life should be low so finish him off.

Hint: Defeating Magma Dragoon and Slash Beast

To defeat Magma Dragoon and Slash, use Raijingeki when playing as Zero as this does 2 hits on Dragoon and 1 hit on Slash Beast.

Hint: Defeating Sigma

The easiest way to defeat Sigma's first form (phantom) is to use the fire attack. There is a pattern to his attacks in this form. After you hit him two times with the fire, he will attack you with an attack that can't be blocked or dodged on the ground. After hitting him two times, jump on the wall to the top of it then repeat.

The easiest way to defeat Sigma's second form with X is the lightning web. With Zero, use the Giga Attack. The easiest way to kill him is to avoid him using the four miniature boomerang attacks on you. To do this, you must know his pattern.

The easiest way to defeat Sigma's third form with X is to use the Soul Body on the large one (with the gun). Use the Jet Stingray attacks on the big head. To avoid the large head's attack, go close to the wall opposite of him when he appears. He will either suck you in or blow you to spikes. If spikes appear, dash quickly and keep dashing. Then, change your weapon to the Jet Stingray and get him. If he sucks you in, destroy the red head and dash up to the top of the wall (opposite to him). When he blows the crumbled things out, he will not hit you. Note: When the large one says "The end", jump on the "Power Ranger" heads to the left.

The easiest way to defeat Sigma's third form with Zero is to kill the large one with the gun, then destroy the red head below him. Next, use the fire attack on him outside of his range. To kill the head, do the same as X's strategy to avoid his attacks, but use the multiple combo technique by rapidly pressing Forward while rapidly pressing Sabre at the same time. to kill him.

Hint: Defeating Slash Beast

First, defeat the Stingray and use his weapon in the battle. Shoot him once, then jump over him, turn, and fire again. Repeat this until he goes down. In order to kill Slash Beast as Zero, use this multiple combo technique. Rapidly press Forward while rapidly pressing Sabre at the same time. You will only do the first two hits of Zero's full attack, but the Slash Beast is affected even if he is flashing with the first two hits of Zero's attack. That will lower his health quickly.

Hint: Defeating Web Spider

To defeat Web Spider as Zero, use Ryuenjin after if you have Kuuenbu jump and slash him for an extra hit. To make the Web Spider fall down, use the Twin Slasher weapon on his web that is supporting him. Make sure that both of them hits it. He will fall down and be wide open for an attack.

Hint: Easy helmet upgrade

For an easy helmet upgrade, go to the Cyber Peacock stage and get a rank "S" on the third section. This can be done easily by using the Soul Body (Split Mushroom's weapon) periodically in order to kill the floating eye balls.

Hint: Flying boots, body armour, Nova Strike

To receive flying boots, body armour and Nova Strike (a very powerful blast) while playing as Dark Mega Man, get the upgrade on the Web Spider's stage.

Hint: Easy lives and energy

Go to Frost Walrus/Kibatodos stage. Dash jump towards the first wall on your left, then dash jump to the right one. Continue to the right and you will see two snowmen. Use either the Lightning Web (X) or the Double Jump (Zero) to jump higher and reach the upper-right edge. Defeat the weak enemies here to gain energy capsules. If you have not taken damage, you should have one E-tank filled to 50%. You should also get the life near the platforms that appear and disappear. Return up to four times to replenish your two E-tanks and get a good supply of lives. For really tough fights (for example, Colonel and Sigma) if you have already used all your energy tanks, it might not be a good idea to pick up many lives. However, do it against the eight Mavericks once you meet them again, if you do not use tanks during the fight.

As X, go to the area before the ice slopes in the Snow Base level. Jump on the side of the wall and use the Lightning Web, then dash in the air to the web and then to the higher ledge that you cannot see from the ledge you were on. There will be several health units and weapon units located there. Collect and leave, then repeat as needed. As Zero, go to the beginning of Snow Base level. Double jump to a rock wall across from the wall behind you. Collect the lives and leave, then repeat as needed. Note: You can only get nine lives maximum. As Zero, begin game play on the Cyberspace stage. Complete the first stage with a "S" rank. Collect the extra life, and repeat as needed.

As Zero, go to the Frost Beast stage. Get the two lives (one on the top and one on the bottom left). You can either die or exit and get the two extra lives again.

Hint: Frost Walrus stage: Easy heart

An easy way to get the heart in the Frost Walrus stage is to shoot upwards with the Magma Dragoon Flame Upwards ability.

Hint: Magma Dragoon Stage: Fight Dragoon

Once you get the Ride Armour and are at a point where you must jump out to proceed, do not jump. Just destroy the blocks in front of you to proceed to Dragoon. You will enter his stage and still have the Ride Armour. Jump onto the platform and fight him. You will be able to get him down to about half health before he destroys the Ride Armour.

Hint: X: Secret weapon with the Jet Stingray

As X, when you use the Jet Stingray attack, you can press Down whenever you want to make it go down. When you press Down with the huge stingray attack (which requires the plasma shot or the other arm upgrade), it goes across the screen while shooting smaller attacks vertically north and south. You can also shoot large boss attacks if you have a arm upgrade (e.g. plasma).

Hint: Zero's power attack

After gaining the Fire attack for Zero, just attack as you normally would except tap his slash attack two times and on the third time use his Fire attack.

Hint: Zero's combos

When you have Raijingeki, Ryuenjin, Hyouretsuzan and Shippuuga you can use this combo. First, slash once then use Raijingeki. After that use Shippuuga (Must Dash) then use Ryuenjin. Then, finish off with Hyouretsuzan. This combo is only slightly effective on Boss but does lot more against an army of enemies.

After you have the Raijingeki, slash once and as soon as the slash ends, use Raijingeki for a very powerful combo.

Hint: Float in mid-air

Double cyclone is effective in the air since it stops X short and gives him a little more time and distance. Charge up rising fire and jump in the air. When you reach your highest point in your jump, release the charge. You will boost up for a double jump.

Chill Penguin appearance

Go to Frost Walrus' stage and proceed to the mid-Boss. You will see Chill Penguin frozen in an ice cube. Also, If you look closely in the background, you will see that the wall was broken. This is the exact stage in "Mega Man X" for Chill Penguin.

Spark Mandrill appearance

Start Frost Walrus' stage and look closely in the background. A big frozen Ice block frozen like Spark Mandrill.

Buffalo appearance

Get to the halfway Boss in the Frost Walruses stage to see the Buffalo from "Mega Man X3" in the background.

Enigma appearance

Go to web spiders' area. In the background you can see the Enigma from "Mega Man X5".

Sigma appearance

In Storm Owl's stage, you can see Sigma's face appear in the middle of the city in the background.

Street Fighter Alpha 2

In the first part of the introduction stage, The City, look in the background where the Capcom logo can be seen flashing. This is the same stage as Charlie fights in "Street Fighter Alpha 2".

Hint: Capsule Locations

Armour CapsuleGo to Magma Dragoon level and proceed until reaching the part of Volcano Area 2 where you have the armour. Get into it and dash jump towards the platform in order to land on it, then charge twin slasher to full power and destroy the blocks in front of you. Pass through and get the armour upgrade.
Helmet CapsuleGo to the Cyber Peacock level and get an S rank on the third stretch with the yellow balls that drains your energy. This may be difficult to accomplish, but it is achievable.
Leg CapsuleGo to the Web Spider level and proceed to the part with the waterfalls. When you drop down to the section below the part with the spike spinning on the platform, go through the gap on the right side wall opposite to the hole.
Arm CapsuleGo to Storm Owl Area 2 with all the laser cannons. Get to the section with the hole in the ceiling, with spikes on the floor and each side of the wall. Use the lightning web weapon to jump onto the platform. Above the platform are two capsules. One allows you to fire four shots in a row and the other allows you to fire a plasma bolt. The best choice is the plasma bolt as it keeps hitting the enemy after the first hit.
Arm Capsule (second method)This trick will allow you to get the Arm Capsule easily, but will require the Body Armour. Go to the Owls' second area, then go past the cannon area towards the boss door. Instead of entering the foor, there should be an opening in the ceiling that is surrounded by spikes. Shoot a Lightning Web onto the surface of the spikes, then dash jump toward it and kick off it. Use the nova strike to get to the capsule.
Ultimate CapsuleBegin the game as Dark X, then go to the Web Spider level and proceed to where the Leg Capsule was located. Instead, you will receive the Ultimate Armour. This allows unlimited nova strike, unlimited none charged special weapons, hover in mid air, and the ability to shoot plasma bolts.

Hint: Heart Locations

First HeartThere are some trees that you can burn in the second stage of the Webspider level. Find the full-healing item right next to a tree, just before you fight Webspider. Use Rising Fire (touching the tree) or Zero's weapon. It will burn down.
Second HeartGo to the Peacock stage and get an "S" for the second (Zero) course, or the first (X). You can destroy the yellow balls with X's Soul Body, and Zero's Spinning Saber attack (split mushroom attacks).
Third HeartGo to the Owl stage, where you can get onto the machine. Make sure the first laser beam does not destroy the platform; the third heart is located there.
Fourth HeartGo to the second stage of the Magma Dragoon level. There are machines there that look like your suit. The first one is at the part where the fire balls start to come down. Go up to the highest ground (directly above it). Dash jump to the left to find a heart there; or jump twice with Zero or float with X to the left.
Fifth HeartYou will see it on the Mushroom stage. You can get it, even though the drilling things drill it down. Go and slide down the small wall, and dash jump (or jump twice), or web with X.
Sixth HeartGo to the Sting Ray stage. You will see the heart on the bottom part of two platforms. Do not jump.
Seventh HeartGo to the Slash Beast stage. Go to the part when you get in the suit. You can destroy the metal boxes and the cargo platforms with your machine. Destroy the second platform to find the heart
