Megaman's Ultimate armor:
Highlight Megaman at the character select screen, then press Up(2), Down(9). A sound will confirm correct code entry. You will start the game with the Ultimate armor and always have it for use through the rest of the game.
Information in this section was contributed by Judoa and dmsd01.

Zero's Black armor:
Highlight Zero at the character selection screen, then press Down(2), Up(9). A sound will confirm correct code entry. Then, press Circle. Note: Zero's Black armor will reduce damage slightly as compared to his Red armor.
Information in this section was contributed by Lee Eng Sing, Cloud Strike, and dmsd01.

Zero's Supreme Slash:
Either press Dash + Slash, or press Forward, Forward + Slash. Note: This is the best to finish some of the Bosses.
Information in this section was contributed by Lee Eng Sing and AceAdam57.

Zeros's Slash combo:
Press Square(2), Back, Square for a 4 hit combo which works on any Boss.
Information in this section was contributed by Lee Eng Sing.

Zero's Flip-Slash combo:
Note: You must have most of the special moves you get from Bosses. First, use Zero's Lightning Upper-Cut (Up, Square), then press Circle while in the air to become invincible and dash through the air. Then, use his Flame Sword (Down, Down, Square) and if you are not on the ground yet, use your Square in the air to make Zero Flip-Slash. This combo is highly effective on Bosses.
Information in this section was contributed by Kyler McLeod.

Zero's unlimited Slash:
Press Left or Right (depending on which way you are facing) + Square.
Information in this section was contributed by digi429.

Zero's Sabre Slash on Bosses:
Usually you can do up to 3 or 4 hit combo on any Boss. However, the Final Slash will paralyze the Boss for awhile, which prevents you from slashing it during this time. To avoid this, hit the Boss with a 2 or 3 hit combo and do not use the Final Slash. It would be better if you used Zero's Supreme Slash.
Information in this section was contributed by Lee Eng Sing.

Hint: Alternate second half:
If you let the colony collide with the Earth (let all the time run out), an intermission where Zero is infected with the Sigma virus and becomes a powerful Maverick will appear. For the rest of the game you cannot choose Zero and the dialogue changes for a few of the intermissions. Also, Zero fights more aggressively and uses different attacks when you fight him in the third Maverick level.
Information in this section was contributed by Aceadam75.

To get this faster, launch the shuttle before you have collected all the parts for it. This will also display an intermission where Zero goes Maverick and gives you the ending where X's memory of Zero is wiped clean. What you do with the Enigma does not matter.
Information in this section was contributed by david ruzicka.

Hint: Shortcut to Sigma's final stage, area 1:
Start a new game then enable the armor code for either X or Zero. Play in the first stage and defeat Sigma's big head. At the stage/Bosses selection screen, press L1 or R1 to enter the mode. Press L1 or R1 for armor selection. The ultimate armor will be in the armor selection. Press L1(2) or R1(2) for mode selection. To get to the Sigma's final stage, you must do the L1 or R1 pressing steps twice -- press L1 or R1 twice, then select the "launch ship" mode. Once you enter this mode for the first time, the space ship will be launch. After the short intermission, the game will begin again at the stage selection screen. Do the L1 or R1 pressing steps again and enter the launch ship mode. The space ship will launch for the second time. You can now play in the Sigma's first final stage. Note: Make sure to select the middle box and press Start.
Information in this section was contributed by Husaini and Fadzli.

Hint: Easy Zero stages:
The following is an easy way to get through the first of the three Zero Stages. At the first stage where all the green lasers that can kill you instantly are, use Dark Hold. It stops the lasers and gives you time to get through everything.
Information in this section was contributed by SamG130.

Hint: Zero and Bosses:
Do not use Zero in a stage with a Boss. Zero always retires (dies) in the stage.
Information in this section was contributed by hank.

Hint: Defeating Dark Dizzy:
Shoot the F-Laser with X standing at the center of the screen. Guide it under him, then have it turn around and go the other way. If timed correctly, Dark Dizzy will move into the tail of the laser, but your laser will not be used up. You can do this either under him or beside him. Yolu will have to guess whether he will move up/down or to the side.
Information in this section was contributed by Blargg.

Hint: Defeating Sigma:
To defeat Sigma in the first round, start by jumping to the top left hand corner of the room. Keep jumping until Sigma starts dashing. Note: He cannot hit you when you are at the very top. When he gets close, quickly press Left + Square then keep jumping to the top of the wall. If done correctly, he should take damage. Repeat this until he starts creating shockwaves. Dodge them by jumping or ducking. Do the same as above, but be careful as he might hit you with his viruses. Note: This was done with a controller an auto-fire feature.

Hint: Defeating second Zero Virus stage Boss:
The Boss of the second of the Zero Virus Stages (the big face from Megaman X) has three weaknesses. The red and green eyes are weak to C-Shot, the blue eye is weak to Ground Fire, and the nose is weak to Goo Shaver.
Information in this section was contributed by Smelling Skunk.

Hint: Ultimate armor for X or Zero:
Go past all of the spike traps in the third Sigma level. You will reach what appears to be a pit. Slide down the right side of it until you fall into a room that contains a capsule. Step into the capsule to obtain the armor. When playing as X, you will have to intentionally die and restart the level to use it. Zero will automatically equip it.
Information in this section was contributed by Viper12car.

Get to the third Sigma level as normal X or Zero. When you get to a hole after some spikes, slide down the right side of the wall until you go through it. Dr. Light will have a capsule with Zero's black armor or the ultimate armor. After you get it, fall through the hole until the game ends. Go to stage selection and use the opposite character.
Information in this section was contributed by JrBond010.

Hint: Get all the armors for X and Zero:
Start the game with X and make sure you have the Fourth Armor. After destroying the colony (make sure Zero does not become Maverick), go to the third Maverick stage with either X or Zero. After getting the armor, die constantly and go to stage selection screen when the game ends. Then, go to the stage again, but with the other hunter. For example, if you went with Zero first, then go with X next or vice versa. Look at the left side of the stage selection screen to find the Fourth Armor, Black Zero, Ultimate Armor, Gaea Armor (if you have it), and Falcon Armor (if you have it).
Information in this section was contributed by Pokemaniac200035.

Use the following trick to eventually collect all armors possible (with sacrificing Z-Buster and regular Red Armor). Start as Mega Man without enabling the Ultimate Armor code. You should already have the fourth armor. Then, collect the Gaea armor and Falcon armor as usualYou should now have the Fourth, Gaea, and Falcon armors. Work your way to the third Zero virus levels. It should have a red background. There is a location in the level with spikes on the top and bottom. There is a moving platform, and to the right of that is a narrow path with spikes on top and bottom to the right of that (on the regular path). Pass that section. Immediately after that should be a pit with a platform on the left wall of it that remains still. Slide down the right wall and you should eventually reach a part where there is a concealed room in the wall that you can see. The wall is hollow and you can slip through it. Inside will be a capsule. If you have unarmored X, then you should be able to get the Ultimate armor. You should now have the Fourth, Gaea, Falcon, and Ultimate armor. If you have Zero in that pit, you will get the Black armor. You will now have all possible armors: Fourth, Gaea, Falcon, Ultimate, and Black, also including regular X. It is recommended that you use Zero for the level. However, before picking him, go in the level with unarmored X and get his armor. Then, die and get Zero and his armor. It will appear on him immediately so you do not have to quit to get it, then go to fight X. Also, the Black armor is different from Mega Man X4's Black armor. It has an enhanced dashing ability with a purple boost. Also, an enhanced color of the armor actually powers up the body. It also powers up the Z-Saber to an almost invincible power that can destroy viruses without Virus Buster.

Hint: Falcon armor:
Information in this section was contributed by Cloud Strike.

Legs: In Grizzly Slash's area, after the train section in the caves there is a opening -- use C-Sword.
Body: In Duff McWhalen's area where the water drains, use G-Shaver and open the blocked Capsule.
Head: In Squid Adlers's area, collect all the E. Spheres on the bike ride.
Arms: In Izzy Glow's area, after the spiral stairs, destroy the Plazma Cannon and get the arms once past.

Alternately, use the following directions:
Information in this section was contributed by kpc8181.

Boots: Grizzly Slash's area. After you get off the train, keep moving and you will see a hole in the roof. The boots are up there.
Armor: Duff McWhalen;s area. It is easy to locate in the part where the water has drained. You will see a cracked wall and a small device behind it. Charge up McWhale's power (assuming you have it) and try to destroy the little device.
Helmet: Squid Adler's area. Collect all the blue things at the jet bike part of the level to destroy the wall concealing the Helmet.
X-buster: Izzy Glow;s area. During the part with the strange things in the walls that shoot at you, there is a hole in the ceiling. Climb up and shoot at the wall thing at the top with the C-Shot. The armor is on the other side.

Hint: Gaea armor:
Information in this section was contributed by Cloud Strike.

Head: Before Dark Dizzy's chamber is a pit. Go in and use the F-Laser to blow it up from inside.
Body: Just Before the third lift, use the Falcon armor to find the well hidden Capsule.
Arms: Instead of going up the end vines, keep moving right and use double jump.
Legs: During the second rope climbing section there is a opening. Fly up with the Falcon armor and get the legs.

When you have the Gaea armor, it will not let you manually charge up. However, if you go into the options and select "Auto charge" and turn it on, it will charge up and you can use charge attack.
Information in this section was contributed by Chad Pritchard.

Take the Falcon armor to The Skiver (Air Force) level and get past the first elevator and begin going up the second. When the Virus appears above you, fly straight up to find the ledge with the armor. Note: Fly down afterward, because, if you jump down, you will fall down a cliff.
Information in this section was contributed by Michael Bennett.

Hint: Ultimate armor:
In Maverick Area 3, immediately before the end, is a platform over a pit. Fall, stay to the right, and go through the fake wall.
Information in this section was contributed by Cloud Strike.

Hint: Armor comparisons:
Information in this section was contributed by CTLinde.

Force armor (Fourth armor): Obtained at the start of the game. Note: If you chose Zero, you will not get it. Advantages: Charged shots are more powerful. You can charge special weapons. You can hover in the air for a short time by jumping twice. Disadvantages: Not identical to Megaman X4's version.
Falcon armor: Obtained by collecting the four capsules. Advantages: You can fly for a short time by jumping twice. While flying, you are invincible. Giga attack covers whole screen. Weapon energy is increased. Disadvantages: Cannot charge special weapons. Mega shot is very small. Defense is cut in half.
Gaea armor: Obtained by collecting the four capsules. Note: You cannot get this armor without getting the Falcon armor first, since you need it to reach the capsules. Advantages: Increased defense. Charged shot is very instant and powerful. Giga attack destroys all enemies in front of you. Spikes do not hurt you. You can stick to walls. You can walk on spikes. Disadvantages: Shots do not travel across the screen. No middle charge shot. Very slow. Cannot use special weapons. Fall faster. Regular shots are weak.
Ultimate armor: Obtained by getting the capsule in the third Zero stage. Identical to Force armor, except you can use the Nova Strike by pressing R2.

Hint: Magma Dragoon Hadouken Fireball:
At the end of the training mission, you will fight Magma Dragoon. While fighting him he will use the Hadouken ability, along with the voice from Mega Man X, when you get that ability.
Information in this section was contributed by Shock.

Hint: Enhance Zero's power:
To make Zero stronger, get the capsule in the third Zero stage (where X's Ultimate Armor is located.) Zero will become black. He can destroy viruses, take less damage, and inflict more damage. Note: This is not an armor. Zero will remain like this.
Information in this section was contributed by CTLinde.

Hint: Best weapon:
Use the Gala attack with the Ultimate Armor to have the best weapon that defeats most Bosses, including Sigma (both rounds). Keep using that attack, which is unlimited. Be careful with Sigma, as he keeps moving around.
Information in this section was contributed by david bonness.

Hint: Rank PA:
As Zero, first fight Dynamo after defeating Izzy Glow and some other Boss. Fight Dynamo with Zero using Izzy's weapon until he dies. After that, you will move up to GA. The second time, fight Dynamo with four or more heart upgrades, and both E-Tanks and the W-tank full. If you fought in excellent time with about 19 or less damage, you should get the PA rank. The rules for keeping a PA rank are very difficult. If you die twice, or exceed six minutes of game play in the level you will lose it. As X, this can be very difficult at first. You must have all that Zero had and the Ultimate armor. X's rank must be at GA before the event. This time, you will use Nova Strike (Giga Attack L2).

Hint: Save a life:
After Zero becomes a Maverick you get a new stage. Enter the stage and climb the wall to your left. Collect the helmet (extra life) located there. When you lose a life, you can get it again and you will have the same lives that you started with.

Hint: Endings:
Information in this section was contributed by Alpha Yee.

Start with Megaman and complete the game with him. You will get an ending where Megaman has no memory of Zero.
Start with Zero and complete the game with him. You will get the ending where both Megaman and Zero die.
Start with Zero and complete the game with Megaman. You will get the ending where Megaman has Zero in his memory and holds Zero's saber.

Hint: Megaman X2 battle:
Keep Zero from going maverick and go to the third Sigma stage as Megaman X. Complete the stage and you will fight Zero. Zero has almost the same exact pattern as he did when you fight him in Megaman X2.
Information in this section was contributed by MaxiDuDe940987.

Hint: Destroying the colony:
To destroy the colony, get the it as close as possible with at least 3 parts -- i.e. the lower the hours, the better the chance of destroying the colony with the Enigma.
Information in this section was contributed by Brandon Rich.

As Black Zero, destroy the mavericks in this order: Izzy Glow, Squid Alder, Duff McWallen, and Grisly Slash.
Information in this section was contributed by babykitty.

Hint: Dash Jump:
Use the following trick to reach a high ledge or jump to the next wall. Hold Dash and perform a jump to automatically do a Dash Jump. This is very helpful, as it also works on walls.
Information in this section was contributed by Bowers.

Hint: Raise your speed:
Note: To do this trick you have to be at the third Maverick stage. Drop down and go to the part where you face the green robot. Stay there and a group of white dots will appear. Face each of them. Keep doing this and your speed pushing buttons will increase. The best character to use is Zero.
Information in this section was contributed by StarFoxbiker9000.

Hint: Virus advantages:
When playing as X, if you get hit by the Sigma Viruses, you will lose health. However, when playing Zero, he will gain full health if this happens.
Information in this section was contributed by Jeramy Devlin.

She will introduce the following in this order: Grizzly Slash, Duff McWhalen, Squid Adler, and Izzy Glow. This is a hint to tell you which Maverick is weak against which Maverick's weapon. First, start off with Grizzly Slash. After you complete the level, use the weapon that you get from him and defeat Duff McWhalen. Use the weapon you get form Duff McWhalen to defeat Squid Adler, etc.
Information in this section was contributed by Cruz663.

Hint: Defeating Izzy Glow:
Izzy Glow's weakness is the Tri-Thunder, but the C-Sword does more damage. It just does not paralyze him, so you can hit him again sooner. If you keep hitting him constantly, the battle will be over in less than 30 seconds.
Information in this section was contributed by Tothehilt81.

Hint: Doctor Wily's logo:
At the end of the game before you fight the big black goo Boss, a giant "W" will appear in the background.
