Find Zero with the teleporters and fight him. He will join you after he is defeated.
Alternate purple doors entrances:
If you approach purple doors differently, your character might enter differently and do poses. For example, if you continuously shoot peewee shots while approaching a purple door (still shooting when you enter), you will walk in with your gun raised and aimed forward. If you slide down a wall into a purple door, your character will turn around and slide (on nothing) into the next room. Dashing will also result in an alternative entrance.
Betcha did'nt no that!
When you cheat and use ultimate armor, defeat infinity mijinion STRAIGHT AWAY!Then go back to the weopon center.This time jump into the portal and go through the rope place.First time,you rescue zero.Second you fight high max.Defeat him and you will be able to ascess to gates labarotory!
Blade Armor:
A nice armor featuring a Giga Attack that is similar to Zero's Triple Z Strike (in which he shoots two buster shots, then shoots blades from his saber). Its charged shot has limited plasma capabilities and will sometimes leave behind its power to damage an enemy. Its charged shot is not very powerful. There are four pieces to this armor, which are found in capsules scattered throughout the game. You have enhanced dash abilities and the ability to freeze in midair and dash straight up, straight down, the left, or the right depending on the direction you hold. This dash is known as Mach Dash.

Helmet: At the Central Museum. Enter the totem poles and search thoroughly through each one. The armor, however, is usually in the final totem pole.

Armor: Go to the Laser Institute. Go to the room with many mirrors required to reflect the lasers to hit the door at the end. There will be a door in the floor near the end. Angle the mirrors so that they hit the door opener in the ground (the very last mirror must be horizontal). Drop down the hole. Jump against the left wall and hold [Left] until you fall through part of it. The capsule is within sight.

X Buster: Go to the Weapons Center and defeat the giant Reploid Ilumina. Enter the portal that appears and walk left instead of right. The capsule is very close from where you appear after entering the portal, just placed out of sight by the clever game design.

Boots: Go to the Amazon Stage. At the bottom of the first cliff you fall off from will be a Praying Mantis Mechaniloid. Destroy it and walk into the passage behind it. The capsule will be in there.
Blue portals:
At some areas, you will see a blue warp portal. Go inside to unlock many things in game. The first time is where you meet Nightmare Zero; it unlocks Zero as a player. The second time is where you meet High Max again; it auto unlocks the Gate stage. The third and many times afterwards is where you meet Dyamo from Megaman X5, as you would always meet him if you still go in the blue portal.
Defeating Blaze Heatnix:
Immediately as the battle starts, magma flows up from the bottom of the screen. Find a ledge. After you hit Blaze Heatnix a few times, the lava recedes and comes down from the top of the screen. You now have the little space below the ledges; so use Meteor Rain to kill Blaze Heatnix quickly.
Defeating Bosses:
Commander Yammark: Ray Arrow
Ground Scaravich: Yammark
Blaze Hentnix: Ground Dash
Blizzard Wolfang: Magma Blade
Rainy Turtoid: Ice Burst
Metal Shark Player: Meteor Raiin
Shield Shelden: Metal Anchor
Infinity Mijinion: Guard Shell
Dynamo: Meteor Rain
High Max: Magma Blade
Gate Boss 1: Metal Anchor
High Max: Magma Blade
Gate: Invinsible Dash or Shadow Armor Giga Attack
Sigma 1: Metal Anchor
Sigma 2: Ground Dash

To easily defeat any Boss or mini-Boss, enable the "X's Ultimate Armor" code. Get to the Boss and use Giga Attack two or three times. Also, use this strategy to defeat High Max. Hit him with a charge shot while he is flashing, then immediately use Giga Attack on him. Do this three or four times to kill him.

Defeating Gate:
Use the Magma Sword on Gate when he throws his spheres. Hit the spheres so that they explode and turn into smaller spheres. They will hit him back.

Note: To reach Gate, defeat all eight bosses, or enable the "X's Ultimate Armor" code and defeat him the first time you fight him after the Crazy Maverick. Whenever you defeat High Max, Gates stage will automatically be open. The best way to pass the spikes at the start of Gate's level is to use the Zero or the Shadow Armor. When in the second area in which magma apperas from the bottom of the screen, run under the opening in the ceiling and use Hydroga with Zero or the Shadow Armor. When you are by the wall, grab it and climb. The Gate Sub Boss #1 is weak against Metal Anchor and Giga Attacks. If you can get X up to him, use the "Storm Eagle" trick for heavy damage.

As Zero, equip D. Barrier, Jumper and Full Recover. Then, fill your Subtanks. Then, when you get to Gate, stand on a platform until Gate moves toward you. Next, Dash Jump to another platform. When he shoots spheres, try to destroy them. They will break into six pieces and hurt Gate. As soon as you get his health low, he will slash the platforms near you. Dash Jump away every time he gets near you. Note: When he throws spheres on you, use Ensuizan to destroy them.

As X (Falcon, Blade or Ultimate), equip D. Barrier, Jumper and Full Recover and fill your Subtanks. When you get to Gate, stand on a platform, then Dash Jump to another when Gate moves toward you. When he throws his spheres, use Magma Blade to destroy them. Do not charge the Magma Blade. They will break into six spheres that hurt Gate.

Defeating High Max:
After getting Zero, go through the teleporters and find High Max with Zero. Make sure to have both Sub-tanks full before facing him. Use the Sharks weapon with Zero. Take your time facing him -- it takes awhile to figure out his attacks and how to get close to him.
Defeating Infinity Mijinion:
Note: Zero is required. First, destroy the doors that power Illumina. Then when the crystal appears, keep running to the right. You will reach Infinity Mijinion's Boss doors. Then, just use Zero's Z Blaster until Mijinion has been defeated.
Defeating the Giant Maverick:
For the first battery. equip AutoCharge, then dodge until you are fully charged. When fully charged, shoot the little red gem. On the way to the second battery, a tracking system targets you. If it locks on, wait until it shoots, then jump. For the second battery, use the same tactics as done against the first, except there are lasers that shoot at you from the side walls, and the targeting system is still activated.
Easy attack with Zero:
Press [Attack] and [Dash] continuously with Zero.
Easy Shadow Head capsule:
As Zero, equip Jumper and go to Blaze Heatnix's area. Defeat the first two "donut" Mechaniloids (use Rekkoha) and go through the door. Above youa re three platforms. Jump to the highest one. You will see a door. Wall jump to the top of the wall opposite the door. You should see a Nightmare, Injured Reploid, and a Heart Tank. Keep at the top of the wall until the Nightmare comes toward you and kill it. Then, slide down the wall a bit and double jump to the platform. Climb upwards until you reach the capsule.
The easiest way to defeat illumina is with the ultimate armor(Left 3 right 1)Mach dash takes half life off.If you like the insane,crazy,stupid and hard way, meteor rain is all you need.
Magna Centipede appearance:
When fighting Metal Shark Player, he will sometimes call Magna Centipide from Megaman X2.
Mega Man X and Mega Man X2 reference:
In the last battle with Sigma, the music is a combination from the final Sigma battles in Mega Man X and Mega Man X2.
Nightmare effects:
Each effect is neutralized in almost in all cases by the same weapon it comes from. In the case of the raining magma, blow it up with ShouenZan or Magma Blade. For iced floors, use Hyoroga/Ice Burst. For gnats, use Yammark Option. For iron blocks, use Metal Anchor/Rakukojin. For soul spirits, use Laser Shield. Finally, red crates can be blown up with SentsuiZan/Ground Dash; black and blue ones can be moved with the same weapon. The rain and the spotlights cannot be neutralized.

Amazon Area, Magma Area: Metallic gnats
Inami Temple, Amazon Area: Normal rain (slows you down)

Nightmare investigators
Usually you start off with commander yammark since he is sooo esy.But try defeating other nightmare investigator first.Why?The nighmare caused can add to your advantage to get through levels easier.
Sting Chameleon appearance:
When fighting Metal Shark Player as Zero, he will use a move and Sting Chameleon from Megaman X1 will appear and attack.
Storm Eagle appearance:
Play as X, and charge up the Metal Anchor all the way. When released, a metallic version of Storm Eagle from Megaman X1 will rain down on your enemies.
One having the ultimate armor, you can jump fairly higher by using it.Dunno what i mean?Use mach dash and you will jump a little before "Supermanning" a few meters or less.So jump,Dash up the mach dash.This will be useful to get to higher places.Using mach dash also make the part where you rescue zero much easier.
Transporter to High Max/Dynamo in the Inami Temple:
In the tree, there are passages with spikes. There are three on the right, and two on the left. Go to bottom one on the left and do the Mach Dash (Invisible Dash for X's Ultimate Armor) and you will fly into it.
Virus advantages:
When playing as X, if you get hit by the Sigma Viruses you obviously will lose health. However, when playing Zero, he will gain full health if this happens. This is very useful when running very low on health when playing Zero.
Zero's best attacks:
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.


Back to top
Blast Hornett:
When fighting Metal Shark Player, he resurrects Reploids from previous MegaMan X games to help him. He will rarely call up Blast Hornett from Megaman X3. Blast Hornett fires a large wave of mechanoid hornets at your character when he is summoned. After a few waves he will disappear.
Defeating Rainy Turtloid:
Equip the Blade Armor and Ultimate Buster part. Fire the Ice Weapon and Mach-Dash up. You will fire icicles and one will hit Turtloid in the head, freezing him and causing heavy damage. The fully-charged ice weapon is Turtloid's only weakness; the Ultimate Buster, which fires all fully-charged shots, makes this a lot easier. if you do not have it, use Quick-Charge instead.
Defeating Zero:
The Z Saber that you are given as a secondary weapon is his weakness. Zero's special attacks will be neutralized and he fades out and reappears on the other side of the screen.
Easy Nightmare Soul gain:
After defeating all eight Mavericks, go to a stage that you can get to the teleporter fairly quickly and easily (such as Infinity Mijinion). Get to the Boss (not the main one, the one where you fight Zero or High Max). You should find Dynamo there. Get next to him and use the Meteor Rain attack (Ensuizan for Zero) twice. Dynamo should drop a Nightmare Orb worth 200 Souls. You can make him do this three times before he goes away for a total of 600 Souls. You can do this as many times as you needed.
Falcon Armor:
X will begin with this armor normally. The armor will be available from the start of the game. Its buster features a piercing shot and a powerful Giga attack, known as Giga Rain. The armor is faulty, and you cannot perform the Invincible Flight power from Megaman X5 (which allowed X to fly for ten seconds). You can still perform the Air Dash though.

Its special attack is a fully charged X-Buster blast that falls all over the screen.

Getting Shadow Armor part in the Inami Temple:
While getting the part to the Shadow Armor in Inami Temple, while at the spikes use Ultimate X Jump and Dash as quick as possible.
Getting the Shadow Armor's Body:
When trying to get into the part with all the spikes, jump then wait until you are in between the top and bottom rows of spikes to use the Mach Dash. You should use X to do the Mach Dash after jumping and release all buttons at the time so you do not hit the second row of spikes. After making past the first row, rescue the Reploid and repeat the procedure for the next row of spikes. Do the same thing to get out.
In the Amazon area with Zero and the special attack Ensuizan, get on top of one of the Transporter Reploids. Perform the special attack. If done correctly, you will be invincible throughout the rest of the level and be able to walk on spikes, as long as you do not die by falling of a cliff.
Nightmare Zero:
Press SSSB at the main menu. A sound will confirm correct code entry. Start a new game. When you rescue Zero after defeating him in battle, you will play as the Nightmare version of Zero. Nightmare Zero has all of Zero's normal moves, but he is much more powerful.
Slash combo with X:
This trick can be done with any of X's armors except the Shadow Armor. Go to the controller configuration screen and turn on the "Auto-Fire" feature. Play the game normally. Whenever you want to make slashing combos, make sure you are not directly next to a wall and have a comfortable position for [Dash]. Hold [Slash] as soon as the saber touches the ground, but before it starts to get small, press [Dash]. This will cancel the slash and start a new one. You can use this technique to perform slash combos similar to Zero's from Megaman X4 and Megaman X5.
Stop roof from lowering in Metal Shark's stage:
You can stop the lowering roof by getting the big robot and walking through the level. At one point you will see a large garbage pile. It is the tallest one. Jump up there and get out of the robot. The roof will only go down until it hits the robot, and you can easily make it to the lower area.
Super high jump:
While you are using the Shadow Armor or have the Ice Attack with Zero, hold [Up] and press [Jump] while you are dashing. You will do the normal high jump, but you will be dashing as in a Dash Jump.
X's Ultimate Armor:
Press [Left] [Left] [Left] [Right] at the main menu before starting a new game. A sound will confirm correct code entry. You will begin the game with X's Ultimate Armor.
