Hint: Extra health:
In the first stage (after the underwater passageway),

to it to get most of your health back.

Hint: Double jump:
When you get the Megaball, you can use the ball to
double jump and even triple jump. You can do this trick as long
as you have energy for the Megaball. Jump, and in the middle of
it, use the Megaball. You should land on the ball while you are
falling down. The ball will explode, and allow you reach the top
of the screen. This depends on where you are. If you want to do
a triple jump, release the second ball slightly earlier than the
first time. You should go higher than the screen with the triple
jump. You must hold Forward while doing this. With enough
practice you can even do the double jump going forward and the
triple jump going backward and vice versa.

Hint: Defeating Dr. Wily:
When you fight Dr. Wily for the first time, have the
Arrow Shot equipped. This is an item that can be created from
bolts. Also have Astro Crush as your Mega Power. As you begin
your battle, notice the thing that spins around and does four
different things (shoots about five multiple shots at you; rolls
at you and returns; bounces up and down; shoots a big projectile
in the air and dops down to make two smaller ones). Also, sometimes
the mouth on the ship will open to fire a big laser. When this
happens, 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; they are difficult to avoid and you
will not get hurt by them if you use the power. When it rolls
at you, jump slightly 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 do these things and are extremely careful, you
can defeat him 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.

Use the following trick to defeat Dr. Wily's first ship easily.
You must have the charged piercing laser shot from Roll to do
this. Immediately after the battle against Dr. Wily's first ship
starts, try to slide under it and go to the opposite (right) side.
You may get hurt slightly. Start charging your laser and hit
the ship from behind. The laser will go through Dr. Wily's ship
and hit him. Because you are behind the ship, you only have to
dodge the spinning wheel when it goes straight (by jumping) and
the purple balls that hit the ground vertically and goes both
sides horizontally after that (by using Astro Crush at the correct
moment). You will be invincible while doing the attack. By the
time Astro Crush is empty, you will have destroyed the first ship.

Hint: Defeating the Giant Clam:
When you first encounter this Boss (when playing the
game from the beginning), you will not be able to do this. However,
if you want to return the intro stage and defeat the Giant Clam
again, the fastest and easiest way is to use the Astro Crush one
time. All of its health will go away.

Hint: Defeating Grenade Man:
Do not slide under the flash bomb that Grenade Man
launches if you have the power from Clown Man. Just use the Electric
Tether and hit the bomb. The bomb will bounce back, and instead
of being hazardous to you, it hurts Grenade Man. Use charged Buster
Shots on Grenade Man himself and the tether for bombs. Note: Flash
bomb is the straight moving one.

Hint: Defeating the introduction Boss:
In the intro level, the Boss can only be defeated by
using the power that Dr. Light gave you. Press Attack to
release the ball, then press Attack again to kick it. When
you hit the Boss with the ball, his weak spot will be revealed.
Quickly switch to your Megabuster and attack the weak spot. Repeat
this until he is defeated.

Immediately after you defeat the mysterious robot,
Protoman will appear and say, ".....what happend?" instead
of ".....what happened?".

Glitch: Reappearing enemies:
If you kill someone, (for example, the robot that throws
rocks at you), notice that once you leave the area where the enemy
was and return, the enemy will be there again.
