Cloud Man- use powered up M.Buster shots, slide when he tries to blow you off the edge, and slide under him when he charges.
Junk Man- just wait till he jumps over you then zap him with Thunder Strike.

Bass with T. Adaptor- this time, Bass uses his Treble Apadtor. mimic him by using Rush Adaptor, and watch out, he can fire his fist too!
Turtle- Fire at his head with M.Buster, and use Junk Shield to kill the little turtles.
Large Face Robot: This is an auto scroll stage, so you’ve got to keep moving. First, this guy will fire missles. Just jump on top of them and leapagain to the crystal above his head and use the Slash Claw on it. Watch out for the laser and bombs!
The 8 bosses: Defeat the first 8 bosses again!
Dr. Wily #1: Shoot at Dr. Wily’s face when you gat a chance and dodge the spikes on the bottom of the skull by sliding!

At the Clown Man’s level kick a mega ball into the clown’s mouth for an extra life.
Do this after you go in the water area in stage 1. If you have bad health, go backwards and keep going until you find a group of trees with a health between them. Destroy the trees to get the health.
Use a superjump to reach places too high for a normal jump. However, you cannot jump straight up (you must be moving forward), and you can only do it if you haven’t used up all your megaball.
To execute the super jump, jump while moving towards a ledge you want to reach. At the peak of the jump, shoot the megaball and immediately jump. you will bounce off the ball in mid-air and skyrocket up. This is especialy useful in Tengu Man’s stage, where jumping from platform to platform against the wind can be risky.
The following cheats were originally written for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of MM9.
In the first Wiley stage directly after defeating Changkey Dragon(which becomes the new spawn point if you perish) you will come across two Telly X’s that will continually re-spawn out of tubes. Equip Jewel Satellite and you can destroy the two Telly’s for as long as you would like and collect screws, extra lives, health and weapon energy. (If you stand on top of the first set of tubes and position yourself correctly, you can put your controller down and walk away. You will continue to destroy the Telly X in front of you and whatever it drops will fall into your lap. When you come back eventually you will have 999 screws, 9 lives, and full health and weapon ammo.

<p>If you want to farm for screws and the like, consider going back to Plug Man’s stage after clearing it. By playing through the stage over and over again in its entirety, you can collect two extra lives, an E-Tank (the only E-Tank in any of the eight Robot Master stages) and around 45 screws per visit. It is indeed the most lucrative of the stages to head to in this regard.
An addition from Colin Moriarty: The Jewel Satellite on just about any stage will allow you to easily harvest screws and extra lives from unsuspecting enemies as well. The best place to use the Jewel Satellite is in the initial run on Concrete Man’s stage. The birds, the rocks they drop, and the enemies that come out of holes in an attempt to knock you into them will give you endless amounts of screws and extra lives if enough time is spent. Run back and forth with the Jewel Satellite equipped during on the first section of Concrete Man’s stage, respawning enemies and collecting ridiculous amounts of screws!
An addition from bergsandwich: There’s another great technique to get as many screws as you need. With the Jewel Satellite in your inventory, head to Plug Man’s stage. Head to the first pipe you find that spawns endless amounts of slow-moving floating robots. Engage the shield and sit right next to the pipe. Enemies will run into you from above, dropping whatever items they drop right on top of you, including small screws. Stand there for as long as needed to acquire the amount of screws you want.
An addition from Holyxion: The above technique described by bergsandwich is an awesome one. Keep in mind that with the Jewel Satellite engaged at the proper areas on Plug Man‘s stage, you can actually walk away from your game for as long as needed as enemies funnel towards you, dropping items right on top of Mega Man. So, if you need to farm, you can do so while you do something else entirely!
An addition from static123: Another great place to farm for screws and extra lives is on Hornet Man’s stage. Head to the area near the beginning of the stage with two missile-launching flower pots. Stand on the second of the three steps heading left and use the Jewel Satellite to destroy their flower missiles. Positioning yourself in such a way that destroyed missiles drop items right on Mega Man, you can stand here indefinitely and farm screws and lives at your leisure.
To easily defeat the rock miniboss on Jewel Man’s stage, equip the Hornet Chaser. The Hornet Chaser, when deployed, will attack and damage the rock foe even when he’s on the ceiling, forcing him to come down where you can quickly finish him off.
To easily defeat the flame dragon miniboss on Magma Man’s stage and in Dr. Wily’s castle, consider equipping the Concrete Shot. Five shots to the face of the dragon with the Concrete Shot will quickly dispatch it. While the Black Hole Bomb will suck all of the flames off of the dragon’s body, rendering it unable to attack, it won’t heavily damage the dragon itself. Use the Concrete Shot instead.
The Rush Jet Adaptor is acquired differently in Mega Man 9 than fans may be accustomed. Instead of getting it when defeating a specific Robot Master and assimilating the skill along with that Robot Master’s weapon, the Rush Jet Adaptor is earned by Mega Man after any five Robot Masters are slain. When the fifth is killed, Roll and Auto will automatically give Mega Man this adaptor.
Below is the suggested order to defeat the Robot Masters in, as well as which weapons to use on both them and the bosses in Dr. Wily’s castle. Keep in mind that in terms of the Robot Masters, you can jump in at any point, but we recommend starting with Galaxy Man and going from there.
– The Laser Trident is the weakness of all three sections of this boss, but the middle section is made much, much easier by using the Tornado Blow on it.</p>
– The Plug Ball is the primary weakness of Wily’s final form (the UFO). However, if he appears too high to attack with the Plug Ball, quickly switch over to the Hornet Chaser and use it on him. They will hit him high above for only one bar of energy per strike, but it will help you decrease his energy a little bit more.</p>
Mega Man 9 is hard. There are two specific items that will help you beyond the usual batch of extra lives and E-Tanks that you should consider purchasing with your screws if you’re having difficulty. The first item to be considered are Shock Guards, which can be purchased from Auto and Roll and will allow you to survive any unintentional encounter with instant-kill spikes (once per purchase). The other item is called a Beat Call, and will automatically save you from any unintentional encounter with a pit or chasm (once per purchase). If you’re having difficulty getting through any given stage, especially in Dr. Wily’s castle, consider a visit to the store to purchase these two items to even the odds.
The following cheats were originally written for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of MM10.
Aside from the Trophy/Achievement you get for beating the game on Hard, all of the Trophies/Achievements can be won on Easy Mode.
Certain challenges in Challenges Mode can be unlocked by confronting that challenge in the main game. For instance, to fight Pump Man on hard in Challenges Mode, you must first get to him and beat him in the regular game on hard difficulty.
To unlock Hard difficulty, beat the game once-through on Normal difficulty.
It’s been over two decades since Dr. Wily built his first set of Robot Masters with an exploitable set of fatal flaws. Not having learned his lesson the last nine times, Wily’s newest batch is once again riddled with weaknesses. Our own Colin Moriarty exposes these weaknesses with his no-fail Mega Man 10 boss order.
Defeat the robot bosses in this order to take advantage of their unique weaknesses. You’ll have to use your Mega Buster to take out the first boss, Sheep Man, but he’s a bit of a pushover thanks to the predictability of his attacks. Use the weapons you gain from each enemy to beat the next.
- Sheep Man – Use Mega Buster
- Pump Man – Use Electric Wool
- Solar Man – Use Water Shield
- Chill Man – Use Solar Blaze
- Nitro Man – Use Chill Spike
- Commando Man – Use Wheel Cutter
- Blade Man – Use Commando Bomb
- Strike Man – Use Triple Blade
