-----------------------------------About Me-----------------------------------

I have played Mega Man since literally the day I can remember. The first Mega
Man game I can remember playing is Mega Man 2 on the NES. The first Robot
Master I can remember fighting is Wood Man, which makes him one of my favorite
Robot Masters. Mega Man has always been my favorite video game icon since I
was a kid. I own every American released Classic Mega Man and Mega Man X game.
I don't really play the other series' though.

--------------------------------About This FAQ--------------------------------

I decided to write this FAQ for anyone who hasn't been into Mega Man for very
long and wants to better themselfs at fighting the Robot Masters with only the
Mega Buster. I decided to include some videos of me fighting the Robot Masters
just incase you can't understand what I am saying in this FAQ, you will have a
visual example to go off of. I hope this guide helps you!

I have covered all the Robot Master Battles from Mega Man's 1 - 10, Mega Man &
Bass. The Stardroids from Mega Man V, the Mega Man Killers, the Doc Robots
from Mega Man 3, and Bonus Battles against Mega Man Himself, Dark Man, and
Fake Man I hope this guide helps you out! If you don't understand what I am
saying in this FAQ, then follow the links after each Robot Master description
to see a video of me personally taking out the Robot Masters, hopefully a
visual example will help! If you like what you see then Subscribe to me on
youtube, my username on there is Redmage1987. If you need help on any of the
other Robot Masters, check out my guides for them on their FAQ Page.

----------------------------------MEGA MAN 5----------------------------------

Mega Man 5 had, in my opinion, the best soundtrack in the series. As a
downfall though, the weapons weren't too great and the Robot Masters were all
easy for the most part. It was also the first to have Beat the bird in it as
well. It also tryed something new with Rush Coil, which I though was
interesting, but the original was still better. It was also the first to have
a ninth Robot Master. For a Strategy on how to fight Dark Man with the Mega
Buster, look in the Bonus Battles Section.

------Stone Man------

Difficulty: 3/10

Power Stone----- 4
Collision------- 6
Pile of stones-- 0 (You can run or slide through him)

Very easy fight. Stone Man has 2 Attacks, one he uses when you are far away,
the other he uses when you are close to him. He use's Power Stone when you are
far away, this causes two Stones to circle outward from Stone Man for a short
distance, after he does that he will jump at you, slide under him to avoid him
If he is too close to you and you are forced to go into the stones, then try
to go into the middle of the two, otherwise just ignore them. When you are
close to him, he will just jump around and when he jumps high enough, he will
crumble into a pile of rocks, you can't hurt him during that time, so take
that time to charge up the Mega Buster.

Video Link...


Stone Man's Fight is from 0:01 - 0:39

------Gravity Man------

Difficulty: 4/10

Buster Shot-- 4
Collision---- 5

Also not hard. You just have be be accurate at shooting. You can only shoot
Gravity Man as he switch's the gravity. Try to stay about halfway across the
room and slide to avoid the shots he fires at you. Prepare Charged Shots as
you wait for him to switch Gravity and hit him when he does swtich it. As long
as you are accurate he shouldn't be hard.

Video Link...


Gravity Man's Fight is from 0:40 - 1:15

------Crystal Man------

Difficulty: 5/10

Crystal Eye---- 3
Crystal Shard-- 4
Collision------ 5

Crystal Man is probably one of the more difficult Robot Masters in Mega Man 5,
thats not saying much though, because he is still not that hard. When the
fight starts he will jump high and release 4 small crystals that will bounce
around the room try to jump somewhere around the middle of the 4, that way you
can jump over 2, then slide away from them. After that he will jump around a
bit and occassionally do a short jump and fire 1 Crystal Type Projectile, just
Slide away from it or jump over it.

Video Link...


Crystal Man's Fight is from 1:16 - 1:56

------Napalm Man------

Difficulty: 5/10

Missile------ 5
Napalm Bomb-- 4
Collision---- 5

Napalm Man's Attacks can be triggered by how far away you far, if you are a
little less than half a screen away from him he will shoot 3 Missiles at you,
just jump over them one at a time to avoid them, if you are any closer than
that, he will fire 2 Napalm Bombs into the air at an Arc, just slide away from
them to dodge them. After he does one of the two attacks he will jump at you,
either slide under him or away from him and repeate.

Video Link...


Napalm Man's Fight is from 1:57 - 2:26

------Gyro Man------

Difficulty: 4/10

Gyro Attack-- 6
Collision---- 5

Gyro Man, like most of the other Mega Man 5 Robot Masters, isn't hard. He will
either throw of Gyro Blade at you, just jump over it or slide under it to
avoid it, or he fly into the clouds and throw a Gyro Blade at you from where
he flew up at, you can't slide under the ones that he throws at you from up
there, so just jump over it and and slide away because he will try to land on
you. Repeate and he shouldn't take too long to kill.

Video Link...


Gyro Man's Fight is from 2:27 - 3:06

------Star Man------

Difficulty: 2/10

Star Crash-- 4
Collision--- 5

Star Man is probably the easiest shield weilding boss in the entire classic
series. Simply all he will do is put on Star Crash and jump at you, so either
slide under him if he jumps high or jump over him if he jumps low and charge
up the Mega Buster until he throw's the shield at you (Which travels slowly)
and hit him with the charged shot, easy.

Video Link...


Star Man's Fight is from 3:07 - 3:54

------Wave Man------

Difficulty: 4/10

Harpoon----- 4
Water Wave-- 3
Collision--- 5

Wave Man has a simple random pattern. First he will make a small burst of
water come up from the ground, just jump up and right or left as he puts his
arm cannon down to the ground and you should avoid it, after that he will
shoot a slow moving Harpoon at you and then jump at you, jump over the harpoon
and slide under him or away from him. Try to stay about 1 Mega Man Distance
away from him and half the time you won't even have to jump to avoid the Water
Wave, still jump though just in case.

Video Link...


Wave Man's Fight is from 3:55 - 4:25

------Charge Man------

Difficulty: 6/10

Fireballs-- 4
Collision-- 5

Charge Man is probably the most difficult Robot Master in Mega Man 5. At the
beginning of the fight he will charge at you, jumping over him may be a bit
awkward at times, but it isn't too bad, jump over him, hit him, and slide
away. Now he will run around for a second before either charging at you again
or firing some fireballs into the air that will fall down in a set of 3 and in
random places, do you best to avoid them. You also can't harm Charge Man while
he is Charging at you or shooting the fireballs.

Video Link...


Charge Man's Fight is from 4:26 - 5:05

--------------------------------BONUS BATTLE!---------------------------------

Here we will cover some Extra Robot's that I always considered 9th Robot
Masters. Basically it's just Mega Man, Dark Man, and Fake Man. To See the
strategy's for Mega Man and/or Fake Man then check out my guide on the Mega
Man 1 or Mega Man 9 FAQ Page.

------Dark Man------

Difficulty: 6/10

Barrier------ 6
Buster Shot-- 6
Collision---- 5

Dark Man is special to me, I honestly feel like he was the first hidden ninth
Robot Master, even though most don't consider him to be one, I do. When the
fight starts he will summon a barrier around him that will go in and back out
over and over again until he fires it off. Try to shoot at Dark Man as his
barrier is going in towards him, and jump over it when he fires it off. Slide
under him or away from him when he jumps, and slide under his shots when he
fires at you. More than anything though, you will be paying most attention to
his barrier thoughout most of the fight so that you know when to shoot.
