Introduction (Intrd) Welcome to my Virus guide for Megaman Battle Network 4. This guide should give you all the information you'll need on the game's viruses. If it doesn't cover anything essential or gives misinformation, I can improve it with your help! Please E-mail me any comments or suggestions you have for my guide at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you e-mail me, please put "MMBN4" somewhere in the e- mail title or it will likely be deleted. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 3. FAQ (Frakq) Q: How do I use Slasher? A: If you hold A when using it, Megaman will automatically attack the next enemy to enter his area for 240 damage, regardless of position. Haha, take that, stupid Molokos! Q: Why don't the viruses in the isolated yellow-and-green tiled areas get stronger in Hard/Super Hard mode? A: That's just the way they are. It's actually pretty useful for getting first- version chips on higher difficulty levels. Q: My question isn't answered in here! A: E-mail me at email@example.com or post your question on the GameFAQs message boards. If you e-mail me, please put "MMBN4" somewhere in the e-mail title or it will likely be deleted. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 4. The Viruses (Thvir) Now, onto the bulk of the FAQ: the virus descriptions. BILLY Billies are annoying Viruses resembling little versions of SparkMan. Their main attack is to fire a slow-moving homing spark. It lasts for quite a while, and will change direction to hit Megaman until it dissipates. It can travel over holes, but not through obstacles. It speeds up with higher versions of Billies. The spark isn't too hard to dodge on its own, but it makes dodging other attacks much harder. Even worse, it stuns Megaman when it hits him, leaving him open to more attacks! Whenever fighting these Viruses, make taking them out your first priority. Movement: Moves to adjacent panels at a moderate rate, in random directions Element: Electric V1-Billy: 50 HP, 15 Attack V2-BillyEX: 120 HP, 30 Attack V3-Silly: 160 HP, 60 Attack V4-SillyEX: 200 HP, 100 Attack V5-Killy: 250 HP, 150 Attack V6-KillyEX: 300 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Billy: Thunder1 L (RS), Thunder1 P (BM), Thunder1 B BillyEX: Thunder1 L (RS), Thunder1 P (BM), Thunder1 * Silly: Thunder2 H (RS), Thunder2 S (BM), Thunder2 P SillyEX: Thunder2 H (RS), Thunder2 S (BM), Thunder2 P Killy: Thunder3 I (RS), Thunder3 T (BM), Thunder3 W KillyEX: Thunder3 I (RS), Thunder3 T (BM), Thunder3 W [Normal Locations] ACDC 1-3 Town 1 ElecTower 1-2 ToyRobo 3 Dex's Game Console Jomon Monitor Castillo Ice Cream Stand (Silly) [EX Locations] ToyRobo 3 Undernet 1 Meteor 1-2 Black Earth 1 Castillo Ice Cream Stand Castillo NetBattle Machine Coliseum NetBattle Machine BOMBOY These little guys are some of the most annoying and hard Viruses in the game. They begin each battle waiting in the back column, then create a massive bomb and push it forward. If they get it into Megaman's area, it explodes, damaging all his panels! You can stop the bomb's progress by rapidly shooting it with your Buster, but only chips can destroy it, and this only makes the BomBoy teleport to the back row and start again. I'd recommend running from battles with them after you have their chips, but if you have to fight them, make sure to use chips that can hit them but not their bombs! FlmLine chips work well for this. You can also hit them in the back row with Lance or ThunderMan. Finally, a TrplCrak can block their progress and keep you safe for a while. Movement: Waits in back column, then creates a bomb and slowly pushes it straight forward Element: None V1-BomBoy: 80 HP, 30 Attack V2-BomBoyEX: 130 HP, 60 Attack V3-BomWrk: 180 HP, 90 Attack V4-BomWrkEX: 230 HP, 120 Attack V5-BomLab: 280 HP, 160 Attack V6-BomLabEX: 320 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] BomBoy: BoyBomb1 J (RS), BoyBomb1 E (BM), BoyBomb1 M BomBoyEX: BoyBomb1 J (RS), BoyBomb1 E (BM), BoyBomb1 M BomWrk: BoyBomb2 W (RS), BoyBomb2 S (BM), BoyBomb2 I BomWrkEX: BoyBomb2 W (RS), BoyBomb2 S (BM), BoyBomb2 I BomLab: BoyBomb3 T (RS), BoyBomb3 V (BM), BoyBomb3 G BomLabEX: BoyBomb3 T (RS), BoyBomb3 V (BM), BoyBomb3 G [Normal Locations] Undernet 6 (BomWrk) Meteor 2-4 [EX Locations] Undernet 4 Undernet 6 (BomWrkEX) Black Earth 2 BOOMER Boomers are pretty easy Viruses, found fairly early in the game. They move up and down a column (most often the back one) and stop when they reach the top of bottom row to fire a boomerang that encircles the outer panels and leaves only Megaman's center and center-right panels safe. Also, their fronts are armored, so they are only vulnerable to most attacks after they fire their boomerangs. Except for regular Boomers, they will start coming after Megaman after he has deleted all the other Viruses, following Megaman and firing boomerangs in a straight line at him when they're in his row. They can also grab Megaman's center-front panel to reduce his running room. Movement: Moves up and down in one column, unaffected by altered panels Element: None V1-Boomer: 60 HP, 15 Attack V2-BoomerEX: 100 HP, 30 Attack V3-Gloomer: 140 HP, 60 Attack V4-GloomerEX: 180 HP, 100 Attack V5-Doomer: 220 HP, 150 Attack V6-DoomerEX: 260 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Boomer: Boomer1 L, Boomer1 N BoomerEX: Boomer1 M, Boomer1 * Gloomer: Boomer2 L, Boomer2 N GloomerEX: Boomer2 L, Boomer2 M Doomer: Boomer3 T, Boomer3 U DoomerEX: Boomer3 S, Boomer3 T [Normal Locations] Town 1-3 ToyRobo 3 Jomon Stereo DenDome NetBattle Machine DenDome Sink (Gloomer) [EX Locations] Netopia Net NetFrica Net Sharo Net Undernet 3 Undernet 5 Black Earth 2 DenDome Sink (GloomerEX) Nupopo Statue CIRKILL CirKills are some of the deadliest viruses in the game. They will circle around their area, firing slow-moving, heavily damaging cannon shots at Megaman whenever they're in the same row without stopping. This means that there will often be several shots moving towards you at once, making them extremely tough to dodge. If you're fighting these guys (it's a good idea to run, though), I'd recommend using an Invis chip so you can attack them without getting hit repeatedly. Movement: Circles around the 8 outer panels of its area counterclockwise Element: None V1-CirKill: 110 HP, 30 Attack V2-CirKillEX: 140 HP, 60 Attack V3-CirCrus: 180 HP, 90 Attack V4-CirCrusEX: 220 HP, 130 Attack V5-CirSmsh: 260 HP, 180 HP V6-CirSmshEX: 300 HP, 250 Attack [Dropped Chips] CirKill: CircGun1 Z (RS), CircGun1 H (BM), CircGun1 T CirKillEX: CircGun1 Z (RS), CircGun1 H (BM), CircGun1 T CirCrus: CircGun2 G (RS), CircGun2 D (BM), CircGun2 T CirCrusEX: CircGun2 G (RS), CircGun2 D (BM), CircGun2 T CirSmsh: CircGun3 M (RS), CircGun3 J (BM), CircGun3 R CirSmshEX: CircGun3 M (RS), CircGun3 J (BM), CircGun3 R [Normal Locations] Meteor 1-4 Meteor Control Area [EX Locations] Undernet 6 Undernet 6 (CirCrusEX) Black Earth 2 DHARMA Dharmas are bizarre, mustachioed Viruses that periodically fire bouncing air hockey pucks at Megaman. It's extremely hard to tell where their shots are going to go, but I have a trick that makes it easy. Whenever the Dharma pauses meaning it's about to attack, pause the game with Start. You then have plenty of time to look and see where their pucks will go. (they move diagonally) Once you get used to dodging their shots, Dharmas are pretty easy Viruses. However, beware; higher-level Dharmas can lay Mines on your side of the field; try not to move when they do! Movement: Moves around within two columns Element: None V1-Dharma: 90 HP, 15 Attack V2-DharmaEX: 130 HP, 30 Attack V3-Karma: 170 HP, 60 Attack V4-KarmaEX: 210 HP, 100 Attack V5-Dogma: 250 HP, 150 Attack V6-DogmaEX: 280 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Dharma: AirHoc1 F, AirHoc1 * DharmaEX: AirHoc1 D Karma: AirHoc2 J, AirHoc2 K KarmaEX: AirHoc2 I Dogma: AirHoc3 U DogmaEX: AirHoc3 W [Normal Locations] Park 1-3 Castillo Ice Cream Stand Castillo NetBattle Machine (Karma) [EX Locations] Undernet 4-6 Castillo NetBattle Machine (KarmaEX) Unsung Hero Statue ELEMPORER Elemperors are living magical lamps that are always found sitting on altered panels. They gain a regenerative aura when they do, and attack with en elemental flare that changes the panel they hit to the same type as the one they're on. Luckily, they can only do this to the row they're on, which makes the attack pretty easy to dodge. Still, they can still make your life miserable if you don't have FloatShoes installed. Like I said before, they also rapidly regenerate HP is they're on a non-normal panel, so damage them quickly! Movement: Stationary Element: Varies V1-Elemperor1: 100 HP, 30 Attack V2-Elemperor2: 140 HP, 60 Attack V3-Elemperor3: 180 HP, 90 Attack V4-Elemperor4: 220 HP, 120 Attack V5-Elemperor5: 260 HP, 160 Attack V6-ElemperorEX: 300 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Elemperor1: ElemFlar N (RS), ElemFlar K (BM), ElemFlar P Elemperor2: ElemIce V (RS), ElemIce H (BM), ElemIce Q Elemperor3: WoodElem I (RS), WoodElem D (BM), WoodElem C Elemperor4: ElemSand L (RS), ElemSand S (BM), ElemSand A Elemperor5: ElemFlar P, ElemIce V (RS), ElemIce H (BM), WoodElem C, ElemSand L (RS), ElemSand S (BM) ElemperorEX: ElemFlar N (RS), ElemFlar K (BM), ElemIce Q, WoodElem I (RS), WoodElem D (BM), ElemSand A, ElemDark E [Normal Locations] Undernet 3 Undernet 6 (Elemperor3) [EX Locations] Undernet 6 Undernet 6 (Elemperor4) Black Earth 1 GAIA Like Elemperors, Gaia Viruses can't moves. Like Elemperors, they can still be dangerous even though they're stationary. Also like Elemperors, FloatShoes are a very good idea for fighting them. These burly hammer-wielders are invincible when they're grey, and only assume their normal colors and become vulnerable just before attacking. They can't actually hit you with their hammers unless they're in the front row, but the impact also cracks some panels on your side of the field and causes rubble to fall. Watch out for the shadows, as usual, and you'll be fine. The bigger danger are the cracked panels, which can make it much harder to dodge. AirShoes and/or FloatShoes are good ideas for fighting them. Actually, they're good ideas for just about anywhere. If you can create a hole right in front of them, their hammers won't work. Movement: Stationary Element: None V1-Gaia: 100 HP, 20 Attack V2-GaiaEX: 150 HP, 40 Attack V3-Gaia+: 200 HP, 70 Attack V4-Gaia+EX: 260 HP, 100 Attack V5-GaiaMega: 320 HP, 150 Attack V6-GaiaMegaEX: 380 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Gaia: BigHamr1 B (RS), BigHamr1 O (BM) GaiaEX: BigHamr1 R Gaia+: BigHamr2 G (RS), BigHamr2 J (BM) Gaia+EX: BigHamr2 W GaiaMega: BigHamr3 V (RS), BigHamr3 (BM) GaiaMegaEX: BigHamr3 D [Normal Locations] Town 4 Park 1-3 Castillo NetBattle Machine Coliseum NetBattle Machine (Gaia+) [EX Locations] Meteor 2-4 Black Earth 2 KILBY Kilbies are annoying moving forests that will periodically teleport into the top panel of your column and use a bamboo lance that spears into the lower to panels of it. If they prepare to attack, move left or right. If you bother to put one is, a Slasher Chip can badly hurt them. They won't attack Megaman if he's in his top row. Because of they're style of movement, it's easy to hit them with a damaging FlmLine chip. Movement: Moves left and right in one row, will move out of the same row as Megaman Element: Wood V1-Kilby: 90 HP, 30 Attack V2-KilbyEX: 130 HP, 50 Attack V3-Kilbur: 170 HP, 70 Attack V4-KilburEX: 210 HP, 100 Attack V5-Kilbo: 220 HP, 150 Attack V6-KilboEX: 280 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Kilby: SidBmbo1 I (RS), SidBmbo1 B (BM), SidBmbo1 R KilbyEX: SidBmbo1 I (RS), SidBmbo1 B (BM), SidBmbo1 * Kilbur: SidBmbo2 S (RS), SidBmbo2 O (BM) KilburEX: SidBmbo2 H Kilbo: SidBmbo3 F (RS), SidBmbo3 U (BM) KilboEX: SidBmbo3 A [Normal Locations] Yumland Net Yumland Buddha Statue Yumland Buddha Statue (Kilbur) [EX Locations] Undernet 3 Undernet 5 Black Earth 1-2 LARK Larks are crazy helicopter-ray things that drift around the field and stop to fire waves that cover two rows. You'll need to be quick to dodge them. Luckily, they move pretty slowly, so hitting them isn't a problem. They can move over holes, though. Movement: Slowly moves around their side, can cross holes and ignore panel effects. Element: Aqua V1-Lark: 100 HP, 20 Attack V2-LarkEX: 150 HP, 50 Attack V3-Bark: 200 HP, 80 Attack V4-BarkEX: 250 HP, 120 Attack V5-Tark: 300 HP, 160 Attack V6: TarkEX: 350 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Lark: WideSht1 C, WideSht1 D LarkEX: WideSht1 D, WideSht1 E Bark: WideSht2 M, WideSht2 N BarkEX: WideSht2 L, WideSht2 M Tark: WideSht3 U TarkEX: WideSht3 S [Normal Locations] Town 1-4 DenDome Card Reader DenDome Sink (Bark) [EX Locations] Undernet 1-2 Black Earth 1-2 DenDome Sink DenDome Sink (BarkEX) NetFrica Lion Statue MAGTECT These Viruses have magnetic personalities! Okay, okay, that was horrible... Anyway, they attack by dragging Megaman to the rightmost panel of his row and zapping him with electricity using their magnets. If you have a Barrier up (the FstBarrier NCP works well, especially with HubBatch), they can't pull you around, making you invincible to their attacks unless you're in the front row. If you don't have a Barrier, quickly move up or down when the pull you in to avoid a painful shocking. Movement: Moves up and down between two panels Element: Electric V1-MagTect: 90 HP, 30 Attack V2-MagTectEX: 120 HP, 50 Attack V3-MagTec+: 160 HP, 80 Attack V4-MagTect+EX: 200 HP, 120 Attack V5-MagTectX: 250 HP, 160 Attack V6-MagTectXEX: 300 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] MagTect: MagBolt1 C, MagBolt1 D MagTectEX: MagBolt1 B, MagBolt1 D MagTec+: MagBolt2 E, MagBolt2 G MagTec+EX: MagBolt2 F, MagBolt2 G MagTecX: MagBolt3 A, MagBolt3 C MagTecXEX: BmagBolt3 B, MagBolt3 C [Normal Locations] ToyRobo 3 Yumland Net Coliseum NetBattle Machine Coliseum NetBattle Machine (Magtec+) [EX Locations] NetFrica Net Undernet 4 Meteor 1-4 Black Earth 1 Unsung Hero Statue Coliseum NetBattle Machine (Magtec+EX) MELODY Melodies are bizarre hopping music notes that will often hop into your area, trying to slam into you. Higher-level Melodies will hop around your area multiple times, up to 4. The panel they're about to attack turns yellow, so as long as you keep moving and don't retrace your steps, they aren't too hard to dodge. Their main purpose is to make it harder for you to dodge other Virus' attacks. As you might have guessed, they're invincible while in the air. If you can lure them into attacking a broken or missing panel, they'll immediately return to their side. Movement: Jumps around to random panels Element: None V1-Melody: 80 HP, 15 Attack V2-MelodyEX: 110 HP, 30 Attack V3-Hellody: 140 HP, 60 Attack V4-HellodyEX: 180 HP, 100 Attack V5-Felony: 220 HP, 150 Attack V6-Felony EX: 280 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Melody: Binder1 O (RS), Binder1 C (BM), Binder1 S MelodyEX: Binder1 O (RS), Binder1 C (BM), Binder1 * Hellody: Binder2 Y (RS), Binder2 T (BM), Binder2 A HellodyEX: Binder2 Y (RS), Binder2 T (BM), Binder2 A Felony: Binder3 O (RS), Binder3 I (BM) FelonyEX: Binder3 E [Normal Locations] ElecTower 1-2 Jomon Stereo Castillo NetBattle Machine (Hellody) Mayl's Teddy Bear [EX Locations] ToyRobo 1-4 Sharo Net Yumland Net Undernet 5 Meteor 2-3 Black Earth 1-2 Mayl's Teddy Bear Netopia Goddess Statue Unsung Hero Statue METTAUR Mettaurs are by far the most common Viruses in the game, and have appeared in every MMBN game so far. Luckily, they're also some of the easiest, and don't present much of a threat. They are extremely simple-minded, moving up and down to stay in the same row as Megaman and using their pickaxes to fire shockwaves at Megaman when he stays in their row too long. The shockwaves are stopped by holes, as are the Mettaurs themselves. They move faster in higher difficulty levels. The waves can move through obstacles, however. V2 and higher Mettaurs can also shield themselves with their helmets; only one is vulnerable at a time and they switch off after each one attacks. They can also use Invis chips. Movement: Moves up and down in one column, attempting to stay in Megaman's row Element: None V1-Mettaur: 40 HP, 10 Attack V2-MettaurEX: 70 HP, 40 Attack V3-Mettaur2: 100 HP, 80 Attack V4-Mettaur2EX: 140 HP, 120 Attack V5-Mettaur3: 180 HP, 160 Attack V6-Mettaur3EX: 250 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Mettaur: Guard1 L (RS), Guard1 V (BM), Guard1 A MettaurEX: Guard1 L (RS), Guard1 V (BM), Guard1 A, Guard1 * Mettaur2: Guard2 G (RS), Guard2 P (BM), Guard2 C Mettaur2EX: Guard2 G (RS), Guard2 P (BM), Guard2 C, Guard2 * Mettaur3: Guard3 R (RS), Guard3 T (BM), Guard3 F Mettaur3EX: Guard3 R (RS), Guard3 T (BM), Guard3 F, Guard3 * [Normal Locations] ACDC 1-3 Town 1-3 ElecTower 1-2 Lan's Microwave Doghouse Jomon Stereo Dex's Game Console Jomon Monitor DenDome NetBattle Machine DenDome NetBattle Machine (Mettaur2) DenDome Card Reader [EX Locations] Town 4 ToyRobo 1-4 NetFrica Net Sharo Net Yumland Net Undernet 5 Black Earth 1 Jomon Stereo Jomon Monitor DenDome NetBattle Machine DenDome Card Reader Castillo Ticket Machine Castillo Ice Cream Stand Castillo NetBattle Machine Netopia Goddess Statue Nupopo Statue Sharo Space Center Comp. Sharo Antenna 1-4 NetFrica Lion Statue MOLOKO These crazy rabid sheep are among the most annoying Viruses in the game. They continually charge from right to left, never pausing to stop unless they run into a hole or an obstacle. They are also protected by their wool. You need to forcibly shear them before you can do damage. Unfortunately, they regenerate their wool every time they reappear on their side after charging through Megaman's row, and it takes more hits to get rid of it with each new version of them. Their attack is very simple to dodge, but they're almost impossible to damage. I'd recommend avoiding battle with them if you can. Movement: Continually rushes from right to left along a single row, reappears in Megaman's row and they pass the leftmost column Element: None V1-Moloko: 60 HP, 20 Attack V2-MolokoEX: 100 HP, 40 Attack V3-Milko: 140 HP, 70 Attack V4-MilkoEX: 180 HP, 100 Attack V5-Macko: 220 HP, 150 Attack V6-MackoEX: 280 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Moloko: MokoRus1 M (RS), MokoRus1 I (BM) MolokoEX: MokoRus1 C Milko: MokoRus2 K (RS), MokoRus2 U (BM) MilkoEX: MokoRus2 G Macko: MokoRus3 Y (RS), MokoRus3 T (BM) MackoEX: MokoRus3 O [Normal Locations] Park 1-2 ToyRobo 1 ToyRobo 4 Castillo Ticket Machine Castillo Ice Cream Stand Mayl's Teddy Bear [EX Locations] Undernet 5 Netopia Net Netopia Goddess Statue NAVBLACK These are even darker Navis that NavShados, with more HP, stronger attacks, and their counterpart's Shadow ability. They can use Cannonballs that aim at your current panel and break it, or a Fighter Sword that hits the 3 panels in front of them. Like with NavShados, it's best to just run from then unless you use a Sword folder. V1-NavBlack: 250 HP, 100 Attack [Normal Locations] Black Earth 2 NAVSHADO These shadowy enemies aren't actually Viruses, but tainted Navis that have been dragged into the darkness of Murkland, AKA Black Earth. They have powers that Dark Megaman never dreamed of, however. No attack, even piercing ones like GunSol chips, can damage these dark Navis except for Sword chips. (they also take damage from swamp panels) Since there is no point to fighting them, I always just run from any battle containing them. They fight much like regular Navis, using slow-moving Cannon shots or Swords to hit Megaman. V1-NavBlack: 200 HP, 100 Attack [Normal Locations] Black Earth 1 Black Earth 2 SHRIMPY Shrimpies are pretty basic Aqua Viruses that have been around for a while. They have a simple movement pattern, and they unpredictably stop to fire bubbles that bounce along a single row. They're stopped by obstacles and holes, and when they hit something they explode in different patterns corresponding to their level. The bubbles travel faster with higher levels of Shrimpies, like most projectiles. Since you never know when they're going to attack, higher- level Shrimpies can be very hard to dodge. Electric chips like ElecShok or ThunderMan work very well for defeating them. Movement: Moves up and down in one column Element: Aqua V1-Shrimpy: 60 HP, 30 Attack V2-ShrimpyEX: 100 HP, 60 Attack V3-Shrimpy2: 140 HP, 90 Attack V4-Shrimpy2EX: 180 HP, 120 Attack V5-Shrimpy3: 230 HP, 150 Attack V6-Shrimpy3EX: 280 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Shrimpy: Bubbler P, Bubbler Q ShrimpyEX: Bubbler P, Bubbler R Shrimpy2: Bub-V D, Bub-V E Shrimpy2EX: Bub-V C, Bub-V E Shrimpy3: BublSide E, BublSide F Shrimpy3EX: BublSide D, BublSide F [Normal Locations] Park 3 DenDome Vending Machine DenDome Sink Sharo Space Center Comp. (Shrimpy2) [EX Locations] Undernet 1-3 Meteor 1-2 Black Earth 2 DenDome Sink Sharo Space Center Comp. (Shrimpy2EX) SPIDY Spidies are annoying Viruses found later in the game. After pausing for a moment, they appear on Megaman's side of the field and chase him around it until one of you gets deleted! They will always move in straight lines, turning only when the run into something. Slasher chips work very well at deleting them; just about any fire chip can also help. Higher-level Spidies can also place two webs on your field that damage Megaman if he runs into they. They disappear on their own after a while. You should away try to delete them quickly, since they make dodging other attacks much harder. Movement: Chases Megaman around his side of the field Element: Wood V1-Spidy: 80 HP, 40 Attack V2-SpidyEX: 110 HP, 70 Attack V3-Webby: 140 HP, 100 Attack V4-WebbyEX: 180 HP, 130 Attack V5-Arachy: 220 HP, 160 Attack V6-ArachyEX: 280 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Spidy: WhitWeb1 L (RS), WhitWeb1 D (BM), WhitWeb1 * SpidyEX: WhitWeb1 R, WhitWeb1 * Webby: WhitWeb2 Y (RS), WhitWeb2 E (BM), WhitWeb2 * WebbyEX: WhitWeb2 C, WhitWeb2 * Arachy: WhitWeb3 O (RS), WhitWeb3 V (BM), WhitWeb3 * ArachyEX: WhitWeb3 K, WhitWeb3 * [Normal Locations] Undernet 1-2 Undernet 4 [EX Locations] Undernet 5-6 Undernet 6 (WebbyEX) SPIKEY Spikeys are dog-like Fire Viruses, some of the most basic. They teleport erratically around their field, only stopping for long to shoot fireballs at Megaman. The higher-level Spikeys move much faster, as do their fireballs, so you can only hit them when they are attacking. Luckily, you have some warning, unlike with Shrimpies. Like with Shrimpies, their attacks explode in different directions depending on their level. Movement: Teleports randomly around field Element: Fire V1-Spikey: 60 HP, 30 Attack V2-SpikeyEX: 100 HP, 60 Attack V3-Spikey2: 150 HP, 90 Attack V4-Spikey2EX: 200 HP, 120 Attack V5-Spikey3: 280 HP, 150 Attack V6-Spikey3EX: 330 HP, 200 Attack [Dropped Chips] Spikey: HeatShot B, HeatShot C, HeatShot D SpikeyEX: HeatShot B, HeatShot C, HeatShot D Spikey2: Heat-V D, Heat-V E Spikey2EX: Heat-V C, Heat-V E Spikey3: HeatSide D, HeatSide E Spikey3EX: HeatSide E, HeatSide F [Normal Locations] ACDC 2-3 ToyRobo 2 ElecTower Comp 2 Lan's Microwave Doghouse DenDome Vending Machine Hot Dog Stand Hot Dog Stand (Spikey2) [EX Locations] Town 4 ToyRobo 2 NetFrica Net Black Earth 1 Hot Dog Stand (Spikey2EX) Yumland Buddha Statue TRUMPY Trumpys are annoying musical instruments that can't attack Megaman, but play music that creates annoying effects. Protecting yourself with a Barrier can negate the effects that work on Megaman. Trumpy (normal and EX)-Makes all other enemies invincible Tuby-Confuses Megaman (reverses his controls) Tromby-Prevents Megaman from moving MuteAnt-Blinds Megaman Xylos-Fully heals all other enemies Regular Trumpys and TrumpyEXs aren't so bad. While their companions are invincible, you can focus on attacking them. (all the Trumpys can't move while playing music) Tuby's attacks aren't very damaging either, if you get used to having your controls reversed. Trombys are arguably the worst; Megaman is a sitting duck while it's playing and can take lots of damage. Eliminate them quickly at all costs. MuteAnts prevent Megaman from seeing any enemies, but you should still have a rough idea of where they area. You can also still see their attacks. Xyloses are incredibly annoying. Eliminating Viruses is impossible if they keep regenerating every few seconds, so focus all your attacks on them until they are destroyed! Movement: Moves up and down to adjacent panels in one column Element: None V1-Trumpy: 60 HP V2-Tuby: 100 HP V3-Tromby: 140 HP V4-MuteAnt: 180 HP V5-Xylos: 220 HP V6-TrumpyEX: 260 HP [Dropped Chips] Trumpy: Fanfare E (RS), Fanfare N (BM), Fanfare G Tuby: Discord T (RS), Discord V (BM), Discord D Tromby: Timpani T (RS), Timpani Z (BM), Timpani P MuteAnt: Silence C (RS), Silence R (BM), Silence M Xylos: None TrumpyEX: Fanfare G, Discord D, Timpani P, Silence M [Normal Locations] ToyRobo 1 ToyRobo 4 Castillo Ticket Machine Castillo Ticket Machine (Tromby) Castillo Ice Cream Stand Unsung Hero Statue [EX Locations] Undernet 2 Undernet 5 Castillo Ice Cream Stand (MuteAnt) VOLGEAR VolGears are living furnaces, blasting Megaman with fire towers. The normal versions of these Viruses shoot line of fire that can change direction to hit him. To dodge them, stand in your bottom or top row, then quickly move all the way up or down as they're about to hit you. They won't be able to change direction fast enough to hit you. The EX versions create 3 fire towers on random panels of your side. Avoid the flashing yellow panels; this attack is easier to dodge than the normal VolGear's attack. They will always try to stay out you're your row, so use chips that hit multiple rows.

WALLA Wallas are stationary Viruses that mainly serve to keep you from dodging other attacks. If you pass through their row, they create two indestructible fangs on it and the one above (below if they're sitting on the top row), then fire them one after the other. To avoid damage, simply stay out of their row or go between the gaps in the fangs. The projectiles can block attacks, so try to hit them without entering their row. They can use Blinder Chips, but since they can't move, this doesn't really matter.

WEATHER Weather Viruses are strange puppets that hang from strings, lowering themselves onto random panels. Obviously, they're invincible in the air. They sometimes lower into their front row and attack with elemental breath that hit the panel in front of them and the column after that. It also changes the conditions of the affected panels. Fire breath turns the to lava, ice breath to ice, wood breath grows grass, and electric breath cracks the panels. They can't hit you if you're in the back column, but they can be deadly in combination with other Viruses if you don't have FloatShoes.
