Introduction
============

  This guide is written by me (xyqyx) and it covers every little detail of the
game. This entire guide is filled with spoilers. If you have anything to tell
me, please contact me at xyqyx@time.net.my Please take note that all mails
will not be replied (unless it is a very special case). All the questions will
be answered in future updates. Updates will take at most one month. This is to
make sure that you will read the guide without having me to reply to the same
question repeatedly. If you see no updates, that means that the question that
you are asking is in the FAQ and you should read that part again. Send all your
comments to me, good or bad. This document should only be found in GameFAQs.com
If it is found anywhere else, please contact me.
  The contents of this FAQ might be similar with other
FAQs/guides/walkthrough/etc. on the internet. This is because I have read
through them before I started writing mine. In no way have I
copied/edited/expanded/etc. other people's work to become mine. I apologize for
any inconvenience that I may have caused.

Walkthrough
===========

  I will describe the walkthrough with X and Zero alternately.

Sky Lagoon

Area 1
  For X, you will start by watching a movie between Sigma and the General.
Sigma is trying to manipulate the General in attacking the humans. The General
refuse to betray the humans. Sigma left with confidence that the General will
change his mind.
  For Zero, you will see his dream about the past.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HUNTER H.Q.
  "Mavericks have been found at point 5567! The Mavericks occupied the Sky
Lagoon using the most advanced weapons available! The army appears to be the
Repliforce!"
X
  "Roger that. I'm on my way now!"


HUNTER H.Q.
  "Mavericks emerged at the point 5567! They've occupied Sky Lagoon! This looks
like Repliforce's doing!"
ZERO
  "Repliforce? ...OK. I'm on my way."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Start out by just moving to your right and take down any enemies in your way.
You will see a robot dragon flying after moving to a place with some 'doors'.
You do not need to kill this sub-boss. The fastest way is to jump over all the
'doors' and destroy the last one.
  If you want to kill the sub-boss, you may do so. The dragon has a few
attacks. The first one is swiping its claw to destroy the 'doors'. The second
attack is by slamming its claw down to the ground. You can avoid both attacks
by keeping a good distance before it swipes the claw down. Once the claw is
down, fire away. If you are cornered at the end, it may fire 2 shots towards
the ground. Just climb the 'door' to avoid it. You cannot attack it while it is
doing this attack. After going through the biggest 'door', the entire place
looks like it is going to explode. Just keep moving on until you meet Magma
Dragoon.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "You're Dragoon from the 14th unit!"
DRAGOON
  "This isn't good, X! That Maverick just destroyed the power reactor!"
X
  "What?! Then the Sky Lagoon will... come crashing into the ground!"
DRAGOON
  "It's too late, X! It's time I made my escape. I suggest you do the same...
Don't do anything reckless on the way out, okay?"

(Dragoon flies away)

X
  "The city below will soon become a sea of flames. Many people will perish...
I have no choice but to escape from here and head to the city below!"


ZERO
  "Dragoon!? You're in the 14th unit. Why...?"
DRAGOON
  "This doesn't look good, Zero! That Maverick took out the power!"
ZERO
  "What! Then the Sky Lagoon will... come crashing into the ground!"
DRAGOON
  "Yes... And destroy the entire city."
ZERO
  "We have to do something!
DRAGOON
  "It's too late. I must escape now. You'd best do the same Zero..."

(Dragoon flies away)

ZERO
  "Damn! If the Sky Lagoon falls... it will be disastrous! There's no time...
I'm going down!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Area 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "...Wha?! The city has been completely destroyed. They were innocent
people... I won't forget this!"


ZERO
  "The carnage... It's... horrible... Those Mavericks will pay for this!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  There are places where blocks of stones come falling down. Manoeuvre around
them and destroy the blocks of stones before it comes smashing down. Near the
end of the stage, there will be a part of the ground that will fall together
with you. Once you reach the bottom, there is a large energy capsule and an
extra life below. Get them and quickly climb up the wall before it crushes you.
You can jump off the ground before it falls thus saving you time but you will
not get the items below.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ZERO
  "Iris! What are you doing here? Are you OK!?"
IRIS
  "Zero... Did you come to save me?"
ZERO
  "Yes. Hang on!"
IRIS
  "A huge Maverick appeared and..."
ZERO
  "Stay here Iris. I'll handle it!"

ZERO
  "Is this really one of Repliforce's? I don't have a moment to spare! I have
to defeat him or else..."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  After that, you will then face the robot dragon. It has a few attacks. One of
them is firing 3 shots at you. Manoeuvre around it or just take the damage and
hit its head. Once in a while, it will fly to the other side. Dash under it if
it is flying to low. The second attack that it has is by firing many shots on
the ground towards you. Jump over to the left just before it reaches you. If
you get close to it, its claw will slash you. Just keep a distance from it and
you will be safe. If you have not killed it, it will fly to the other side and
repeat its attack. After defeating it, Colonel will arrive.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "...Who are you?"
COLONEL
  "I'm the Colonel of the Repliforce."
X
  "Has the Repliforce been occupying this area?"
COLONEL
  "What are you talking about!? I only came to save my sister. The army
responsible for all the violence in this region is not the Repliforce!"
X
  "Nevertheless, I want you to disarm and follow me back to H.Q."
COLONEL
  "Never! You're asking my soldiers to drop their weapons? The only time we
drop our weapons is when we aren't able to fight any longer!"
X
  "But you will be regarded as a Maverick and treated as such."
COLONEL
  "Do as you will! The Repliforce would sooner fight and die than discard our
pride! Consider us Mavericks if this is what you wish!"
X
  "Wait! Calm down Colonel!"

(Colonel leaves the scene)

X
  "What the...! Something's got to give. Otherwise the entire Repliforce will
be considered to be Mavericks!"


COLONEL
  "Zero! Long time no see!!"
ZERO
  "Colonel... What are you doing here?"
COLONEL
  "I've come to save my sister Iris. I only hope she's okay..."
ZERO
  "She's fine! I just rescued her."
COLONEL
  "Oh? Thanks Zero! I owe you one..."
ZERO
  "...Colonel. I have a question for you. ...Did your unit attack this place?"
COLONEL
  "What are you talking about? Repliforce came here for help. We weren't
involved in the attack!"
ZERO
  "They suspect you've become a Maverick."
COLONEL
  "What!?"
ZERO
  "Disarm and come with me to the H.Q."
COLONEL
  "I'm afraid I can't. Soldiers never drop their weapons! I won't do it, not
even for you Zero!"
ZERO
  "Then they'll think you're a Maverick!"
COLONEL
  "So be it! The Repliforce prefers war over dishonor and shame! Good bye,
Zero!"
ZERO
  "Wait! Colonel! Listen to me!"

(Colonel leaves the scene)

ZERO
  "Damn! This isn't good Colonel! They may decide the entire Repliforce is a
group of Mavericks!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*******************************************************************************

  You will watch a movie about Reploids trying to create their own nation.
After the movie, you will be back in H.Q.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "...Who are you?"
DOUBLE
  "Call me Double, the rookie hunter. My liege, the Repliforce has begun it's
coup!"
X
  "...Wait! ...Colonel, you're jumping to conclusions here!"
DOUBLE
  "Sir, you've been given the order to scramble!"
X
  "Right. I'm leaving right now!"


ZERO
  "Iris ...What are you doing here?"
IRIS
  "My brother Colonel started to coup!"
ZERO
  "I know..."
IRIS
  "Please don't fight against him! This must be some kind of mistake!"
ZERO
  "They've occupied several cities already. As a hunter, I must stop them!"
IRIS
  "Zero..."
ZERO
  "I must go now!"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Choose the stage that you want to play. I am not going to say which stage is
the easiest because it all depends on your skill in playing the game and the
special techniques that you have. The order that I've listed below has no
particular order in which is the easiest.

*******************************************************************************
Jungle
Boss: Web Spider (He protects the secret weapon of the jungle)

Area 1
  You will start out at the top left of the screen. Just jump down and keep
moving forward. After you see enemies that stick on the wall and a spike
spinning back and forth on the ground, do not go down any further. Instead, go
to the right of the screen to receive the boot module, X's armor. If you have
problems finding it, be on a platform that has a waterfall in the background.
Then, move to the right and the screen will show the secret cave. Zero can
enter the cave and get nothing.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DR. LIGHT
  "This battle should never have happened, X... Why must Reploids fight each
other? Why do these peace keepers persist in fighting each other? This must be
some sort of mistake... X, enter this capsule. Equip with this to discover the
truth. Equip with this boot module and jump twice in the air to hover. You can
move either left or right and will remain airborne for a few moments. It is
effective for negotiating through higher and more dangerous terrain. Stop this
tragic war as soon as possible, X."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Step on the capsule to receive the boot module. The boot module allows you to
hover on air by pressing the jump button twice. You can hover for around 5
seconds if you do not move or 2 seconds if you move left or right. The boot
module also gives you the ability to dash on air. Just press the dash button
while you are on air. The boot module lets you jump a little bit higher. After
receiving the boot module, get out of the cave and continue.
  The spinning spike can be stop by hitting it but it cannot be destroyed. You
will then reach a place with wooden logs coming down. Just climb and jump on
them to get over with this place. Climb the stairs and move up. You can fire at
the enemies while you are on the stairs. Once you have reached the top, go
right and destroy the door to proceed.

Area 2
  Go forward and you will find new enemies. The web that shoots a thread of web
cannot be destroyed. Instead, destroy the spiders on the web. Further up, there
will be snakes dropping from above the trees just dash past this area and jump
down before they fall. Destroy a pod that produces bees to stop more from
coming out. Climb down some stairs and you will find a medium energy capsule
for you to take.
  In this area there are red coloured tree barks that can be burned with
Rising Fire or Ryuenjin (Magma Dragoon). Burn the second red coloured tree bark
to get a heart tank. Burn the third tree bark to get over this area faster. Get
the large energy capsule and go on. At the end of the area, you will meet
Web Spider.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SPIDER
  "You've labeled us all as Mavericks! I won't let you pass. Turn back now!"


SPIDER
  "Ah... Zero. I've been expecting you."
ZERO
  "Spider! You work for Repliforce?!"
SPIDER
  "Yes... I lead a renegade unit now."
ZERO
  "There's still time, call of the coup!"
SPIDER
  "No. I know where my loyalties lie."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without special techniques
  Web Spider will start by hanging on a thread of web. He will shoot out a web
that will follow you. To evade this attack, be at the bottom of Web Spider.
When he shoots out the web, do a dash and jump over it. Try to minimize damage
instead of attacking. If you get stuck in the web, most likely Web Spider will
damage you again. After damaging half of his life bar, a big web will be formed
for him to move on. He will shoot out 4 small spiders that will move on the
floor and climb up the wall. After that, he will do the web attack twice before
he shoots his spiders again. Try to minimize damage as much as possible. You
will win him in time.

With special techniques
  If you have Nova Strike, use it on him and continue attacking. Plasma shots
works well on destroying his mini spiders. If you receive enough damage, do
Nova Strike again. Kuuenbu and Kuuenzan (Split Mushroom) works perfectly on
him. Use your E-tanks if you really need them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You got Lightning Web
"Fires a spider net charged with electricity. Can be used to attack, wall jump
or double jump."


You learned Raijingeki
"S.M. button on the ground. Lightning attack. Effective against distant
enemies."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Lightning Web can be used as a wall to climb higher places that is not
reachable. Use Lightning Web to get the EX-tank (Snow Base Area 1) and is also
effective against Split Mushroom (Bio Laboratory). If you dash on it and dash
away, the web will disappear. The charged up Lightning Web makes a web like Web
Spider's web. It can attack enemies but it cannot be used to climb. The
Lightning Web will last for two seconds and the charged up version last for 4
seconds. You can shoot 12 Lightning Web or 4 charged up Lightning Web. Each
charged up Lightning Web takes away 3 Lightning Web.
  Raijingeki is a lightning sword. Raijingeki can be used against
Magma Dragoon (Volcano), the sub-boss and Split Mushroom (Bio Laboratory). It
can last for around 1 second.

*******************************************************************************
Cyber Space
Boss: Cyber Peacock (He lives in cyberspace and wants to destroy the network
                     system)

Area 1
  Race time! You have to race against time to the end of the section. The time
starts right after you have been locked on. The main obstacles are those yellow
orbs that will suck you in if you touched them. Avoid them at all costs. If you
have Soul Body/Kuuenzan (Split Mushroom), you can use it to dissipate the
yellow orbs, thus saving time. There is not much that I can help you in this
area. You must be skilful in jumping, dashing, timing, and using your
Soul Body/Kuuenzan wisely. You can shoot the orbs a few times to make it change
its direction. So, if you have Plasma shots, use them. The boot module
(Jungle Area 1) is very useful here. Do not climb any stairs in this area.
Instead climb the walls and do a lot of air dash to get to the end. There are 3
ranks to show how you have faired in that area. Rank S will take you to the
next section and give you an item. Rank A will only bring you to the next
section while Rank B makes you repeat that section again. The rank for the
first section will lower after 15 seconds and will lower down to Rank B after
another 15 seconds. So, you only have 30 seconds to complete the first section.
You will get a heart tank for X or an extra life for Zero if you finish in
Rank S. The second section will lower your rank in 18 seconds and will lower
again in another 18 seconds. You have 36 seconds to complete the second
section. An E-tank for X or a heart tank for Zero will be given if you get
Rank S. The third section takes 35 seconds to lower your rank for the first
time and another 50 seconds to lower your rank again. So, you have 1 minute and
25 seconds to complete this section. Getting a Rank S will give you the head
module for X or an E-tank for Zero.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DR. LIGHT
  "I'm giving you a new head module, X. This module will improve your special
weapons ability. It should reduce your special weapon energy requirements to
near zero. You may now use your special weapons as often as you want.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The head module gives you the ability to use your special weapons
unlimitedly. If you charge up your special weapon with the arm module, the head
module will have no effect. The head module has no effect on the
body module (Nova Strike).

Area 2
  Just move forward. It is that simple. There are a few switches that will turn
the entire place upside down. If you do not know which one to turn on, step on
all of them. The switches allow a ball to roll over to break some floors for
you to continue on. At the end of Area 2, you will meet Cyber Peacock.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PEACOCK
  "His potential... is limitless?! ...not possible."
X
  "Who are you? Why are you doing this to me?"
PEACOCK
  "I was ordered to test your abilities. It's quite simple."
X
  "What!?"
PEACOCK
  "Prepare yourself!"


PEACOCK
  "I'm impressed you made it this far! But you can't beat me! Get ready!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without special techniques
  Just be either in the left or right corner. When you think he is about to
appear, dash to the opposite side and attack him as soon as he appears. When he
uses the 'homing feathers' attack, dash to the opposite direction and jump over
the feather.  This is similar in avoiding Web Spider's web attack. Try to
minimize damage when he is using the 'homing feathers' attack.

With special techniques
  If you have Soul Body (Split Mushroom), use it on him and he will dissipate.
Do not use the charged up Soul Body on Cyber Peacock. Ryuenjin (Magma Dragoon)
will help you win this battle.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You got Aiming Laser
"Move the cursor to lock onto enemies. Attacks the enemy with the aiming
laser."


You learned Rakuhouha
"Giga attack button on the ground. The ultimate special attack that channels
all stored energy into one blast. Use this move selectively as it consumes
energy."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Aiming laser ensures that you will hit an enemy. Although the hit is ensured,
the attack power is low. You can aim at most 3 enemies at any given time.
Aiming Laser is effective against Storm Owl. The charge up version creates a
beam that can be aimed by you. This charged up version will last for 4 seconds.
You can fire your Aiming Laser 48 times or 4 charged up Aiming Laser. Each
charged up Aiming Laser takes away 12 Aiming Laser.
  Rakuhouha charges your energy and send them into 9 different directions. It
is used against Storm Owl (Air Force). You can use it to defend yourself as you
are invincible when you use it. Rakuhouha will charge if you are damaged. You
can use Rakuhouha 4 times.

*******************************************************************************
Air Force
Boss: Storm Owl (He left with a space fortress to conquer the air)

Area 1
  You will get the Eagle Armor after moving forward a bit. The Eagle Armor can
fly by pressing the jump button twice. Once you are on air, you can fly as long
as you like. You can even move left and right. Press jump again to cancel the
flight. While on air, the altitude cannot be changed. You can shoot like normal
and if you charge up your weapon, 3 homing shots will be fired. While you are
charging on the ground, you cannot move, but if you charge on air, you still
can move like normal. If the Eagle Armor starts to blink, jump out of the
armor. The blinking indicates that the armor is going to explode and you cannot
fire. Press up and jump to get off the armor.
  After getting the Eagle Armor, there will be two stairs. On top of the
stairs, there is a medium energy capsule. After getting the medium energy
capsule, do a dash and get the heart tank on a platform that is going to be
destroyed by a big laser. If you lost the Eagle Armor, do a dash jump to get
over places that has been destroyed by the lasers. Go on until Area 2.

Area 2
  Destroy all the doors and the enemy that shoots out big lasers. Ignore the
ladders ahead as it leads you to nowhere. Stand on the moving platform to
travel pass a place that is full of spikes. Once you reach the other side, jump
and shoot a Lightning Web (Web Spider) beside the spikes. Climb on it and jump
again to the wall above. Having the boot module will help. The arm module
capsules will not be here if you are using Dark X. It will take some tries
before you succeed. There are 2 arm modules for you to choose from.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DR. LIGHT (Multiple shots arm module)
  "You can charge up to four blasts at a time with this arm module. It takes a
while to charge, but you can fire a charged shot at any time you so wish with
it. This arm module is also changeable. Enter this capsule to change parts."

DR. LIGHT (Plasma shot arm module)
  "With this arm part, you can fire the Plasma Shot which is effective against
stronger enemies. If the shot hits the opponent, plasma is generated which will
cause additional damage to the enemy. This arm module is also changeable. Enter
this capsule to change parts."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The arm module is a good upgrade. If you choose the multiple shots arm
module, you can charge up 4 charged shots and fire at anytime. These shots are
weaker than the normal shots. The time taken to charge up all 4 shots will be
the same even if you still have some charge shots left. If Nova Strike is being
executed, all the shots that are charged will be gone. The Plasma shot arm
module leaves some plasma behind after making contact with the enemy. The
plasma will attack anything that touches it (except you). Both arm modules
enables you to charge up any of your special weapon to become more powerful.
  After receiving the arm module, there will be a sub-boss to face. The battle
begins with the laser-shooting enemies coming in and out to shoot. Your target
is the 'eye' on the right side of the room. The 'eye' opens and closes every 2
seconds. Be in the middle of the room and charge up your Plasma shot or
Ryuenjin (Magma Dragoon) if you have it. Fire at the eye when it opens. If
those laser-shooting enemies bug you, just destroy them before they fire. The
strategy is just to jump and shoot. Climb the stairs and you will find a large
energy capsule. Then, you will face Storm Owl.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OWL
  "How dare you destroy my unit! You'll pay for this with your life!"


OWL
  "Why do you judge us as Mavericks!?"
ZERO
  "Wait! Stop the coup!"
OWL
  "No. We're just justified in doing this!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without special techniques
  Attack him at every chance you get. When he fires his 3-way laser, be in
between the lasers to avoid it. You can destroy the laser by shooting a charged
up shot but you can't slash it without Tenkuuha. When he shoots a single
cyclone, dash away from it. If he shoots 4 homing cyclones, just dash away just
as they come towards you. If he creates 3 tornadoes, dash away just after it
has formed for half a second. When he is very very low on life, he will be in
the middle of the stage and shoot out cyclones in 4 directions that will follow
your movement. Storm Owl is not easy without any special techniques.

With special techniques
  Just use Aiming Laser/Rakuhouha (Cyber Peacock). He will go down quickly.
Nova Strike him if he shoots 4 homing cyclones.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You got Double Cyclone
"Fires vacuum cyclones left and right. Most effective when surrounded by the
enemies and skyborne enemies."


You learned Tenkuuha
"Enhanced Z saber! You can cut enemy energy shots with your saber."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Double Cyclone shoots two cyclones that look like Storm Owl's Cyclone to the
left and right. The charge up Double Cyclone shoots two tornadoes to the left
and right. You can shoot 48 Double Cyclone or 4 charged up Double Cyclone. Each
charged up Double Cyclone takes away 12 Double Cyclone.
  Tenkuuha will make your saber change from green to purple. It can be used to
slash some enemies' shots.

*******************************************************************************
Volcano
Boss: Magma Dragoon (He betrayed the irregular hunters and hid himself inside a
                     volcano)

Area 1
  Start by just dashing forward. There is a lava rock behind so you should not
stop dashing. After getting the medium energy capsule, you will be jumping over
a series of holes with lava rocks flying up and down. Make sure they do not hit
you because it will stun you and you will go down the hole and die. There will
also be fire 'leaping' over the ground. Just be in the middle of its starting
and ending point to avoid it. Once you reach an upward slope, cling onto the
walls on the left. Wait until all the lava rocks go before you continue. Repeat
until you reach the top. You can also ignore the lava rocks as they deal little
damage to you. Destroy the door at the end and proceed to Area 2.

Area 2
  Jump from platforms to platforms and make it quick. The lava rocks below will
start to weaken the platforms. 2 hits from it and the platform will be gone.
Get the medium energy capsule. Move to the highest platform and shoot a
Lightning Web (Web Spider) or
Kuuenbu (Split Mushroom)/Hienkyaku (Jet Stingray) to your left. Cling onto it
and jump to the left to get a heart tank. You can jump on the platform without
any techniques. Get the ridden armor further in the level. The armor can dash
and jump like normal. Its weapon is a blade on the tip of its hand. Press twice
to make the blade do a slice. You can also do the slice attack while jumping.
Charge its weapon to do a dash attack. To get off the armor, press up and jump.
  Jump up and get off the armor right after you have gotten the armor to reach
a higher platform. Charge up your Twin Slasher (Slash Beast) by having an
arm module (Air Force) to break the wall apart. Inside there, you will receive
the Nova Armor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DR. LIGHT
  "Equip with this new body module, X. This body part absorbs damage inflicted
by enemies and will gradually accumulate within. When it is filled to capacity
with energy you can execute the invincible Nova Strike. However, a single use
will consume all your energy stores, so use it only to pull through tight
situations."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  With the body module, you can do an invincible air dashing attack
(Nova Strike) that will destroy anything in its path. It takes the whole weapon
bar. It can be recharge by being damaged or getting weapon capsules.
  Go back to the ridden armor and continue moving forward. When you reach a
dead end, do not jump up to the higher platform. Instead, destroy the rocks
below with the armor's weapon. The armor can move on the lava. At the end, you
will meet Magma Dragoon.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DRAGOON
  "X... You've arrived."
X
  "Dragoon! Why did you betray the H.Q.!?"
DRAGOON
  "Heh... You'll have to defeat me first."
X
  "But... We're allies!"
DRAGOON
  "...You're so naive. ...Listen closely. I let the Sky Lagoon fall! And I'd do
it again! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!"
X
  "No! Those were innocent people! You're not Dragoon! Just a Maverick!"
DRAGOON
  "You got that right! Power up X! It's time you showed me what you can do!"


DRAGOON
  "Zero... It's really you!"
ZERO
  "Why did you betray us?!"
DRAGOON
  "........."
ZERO
  "Answer me, Dragoon!"
DRAGOON
  "I have no answer for you my friend."
ZERO
  "Dragoon!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With ridden armor
  Just slice him until he dies. Do your best not to lose the armor.

Without special techniques
  Cling onto the right wall as soon as possible. Charge up your X-buster and be
on the highest point of the wall. When ever you think the time is right, fire 
your charged up X-buster on Magma Dragoon. If he fills the corner with a blast
of lava or does the fire punch towards you, jump away from the wall and quickly
climb back on the wall when you have the chance. When he does the lava shower
attack, just take the damage or avoid it if you think you have the skill to do
so.

With special techniques
  Double Cyclone (Storm Owl) works wonders on Magma Dragoon. Just hit until he
dies. Use Plasma shots if you do not have Double Cyclone. Nova Strike him when
you get the chance. Raijingeki (Web Spider) is supposed to work well on him.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DRAGOON
  "...You... are... strong... X..."
X
  "Such a waste... Why Dragoon?"
DRAGOON
  "...Always... wanted... to fight... you. ...Then ...he ...appeared ...and"
X
  "He appeared? Who?!"
DRAGOON
  "told me to work for Repliforce. To goad you into fighting..."
X
  "You did it just so you could fight me?"
DRAGOON
  "...was worth it... for a final duel..."
X
  "Dragoon!!!"

You got Rising Fire
"Shoots fire energy vertically. Effective against all airborne enemies. Some
objects may be burned by this attack as well."


DRAGOON
  "...I ...wanted ...to defeat... you... ...Then ..he ...appeared..."
ZERO
  "He? Who!?"
DRAGOON
  "...He ...told me... he'd give me power. only if I worked... for
Repliforce..."
ZERO
  "...What!?"
DRAGOON
  "I couldn't... refuse the offer... Sorry Zero..."
ZERO
  "...Dragoon!!!"

You learned Ryuenjin
"Up + S.M. button on the ground. A powerful attack that burns enemies with
flames. Some objects might be burned by this technique."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Rising Fire is a ball of fire shot from X's arm going upwards. It is used to
burn in Jungle Area 2, Snow Base Area 1 to get a heart tank and Sigma's first
form. Rising Fire also can be used against Frost Walrus. The charged up
Rising Fire is having X doing an upward punch before releasing the fire from
his hand. You can fire 16 Rising Fire or 4 charged up Rising Fire. Each charged
up Rising Fire takes away 4 Rising Fire.
  Ryuenjin is an uppercut done by Zero with flames on his saber. It is used to
get a heart tank in Jungle Area 1, Cyber Peacock (Cyber Space),
sub-boss (Air Force), sub-boss (Military Train), heart tank, sub-boss and
Frost Walrus (Snow Base), Iris (Final Weapon) and
Sigma's First Form (Final Weapon).

*******************************************************************************
Marine Base
Boss: Jet Stingray (He destroyed the city and escaped to the sea)

Area 1
  You will start out on a Land Chaser. The Land Chaser cannot charge up its
weapon and you cannot jump out from it until you are facing Jet Stingray. The
Land Chaser can dash which will attack an enemy. If you dash on air, it will be
airborne for a second. Press up or down to make it move a little bit. Area 1 of
this stage is easy. Do not jump on the third hole on the ground. Instead, just
let it go normally and you will get a heart tank. Jump, dash and attack until
you reach Area 2.

Area 2
  You will still start with the Land Chaser. Nothing that is new here. Do the
dash attack when you see Jet Stingray. When you see two blocks and two land
mines, jump right after the upward slope and do a jump before dashing on the
next platform. There will be an E-tank on another higher platform. Press up or
down to control your altitude a little. You will automatically jump off the
Land Chaser at the end. Get the large energy capsule and meet Jet Stingray.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STINGRAY
  "I'm impressed that you found me... But your search is over. Get ready X!"


STINGRAY
  "Argh! He's still after me! Enough already. We settle this now!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without special techniques
  Climb on the wall and fire away with your charge shot. This should destroy
his Ground Hunter all together. Zero will be harder as you need to slash him
when he is coming down. Jump over him when he dashes towards you. When he is
absorbing everything, dash away from him. This attack will still work on you
even if you are on the wall above the water. You can avoid his dash attack but
being at the topmost corner. You can be just below him too when he does the
dash attack. Once half of his life bar is gone, he will send red coloured
Ground Hunters. These are homing and it is quite difficult to avoid. He will
also do an attack by dashing down and then dash up wherever you are. Just dash
away before he attacks. Just do not let too many Ground Hunters to be on the
floor and you should be able to win.

With special techniques
  Just use Frost Tower (Frost Walrus). Do not use the charged up version. Use
it when you think he is going to dash towards you. If you have the head module
(Cyber Space Area 1), this battle will be easy as you keep using Frost Tower.
Hyouretsuzan (Frost Walrus) will take him down easily.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You got Ground Hunter
"Fires mini Stingray drones that race across the ground. Effective against
enemies on walls and floors. Push Down while the Stingray drones are flying to
command them to fall."


You learned Hienkyaku
"Dash button while jumping. May be executed in the air."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The Ground Hunter that you fire is similar to Jet Stingray's Ground Hunter.
These are useful against Slash Beast. They will scout on the ground until they
reach a wall. If you fire them on air, you can command them to go down to the
ground by pressing the down button. The charged up version is an 'energy'
Ground Hunter shooting forward. You can fire 48 Ground Hunter or 8 charged up
Ground Hunter. Each charged up Ground Hunter takes away 6 Ground Hunter.
  Hienkyaku just allows you to dash on air. Quite useful sometimes to dodge
attacks. You cannot perform Kuuenbu (Split Mushroom) after doing Hienkyaku and
vice versa.

*******************************************************************************
Bio Laboratory
Boss: Split Mushroom (He occupies the laboratory and will attack whoever visits
                      there)

Area 1
  Climb up this spiral stair until you reach the teleporter at the end. In the
next section, move until the end. In the third section, climb up the stairs.
You will meet an enemy that grows on the wall. You can shoot it, but it will
regenerate in 4 seconds. Climb further and a platform will close. Choose the
left path and you will face two of those regenerating enemies. Choose the right
path and you will meet two hovering enemies. Either way, the platform will
close again after you have past that section. Cling on the platforms and climb
up the stairs. Do not dash in this section, as the spikes will kill you
instantly.
  The platform will close again and there will be two enemies from both sides
tunnelling through the wall. Dash when needed. Stay on the stairs and wait for
the time before you go on. Continue to the next screen and you will meet the
sub-boss. Just fire with your charged shots or
Plasma shots/Raijingeki (Web Spider) when it comes ramming up the platforms.
Make sure you have enough platforms to stand on.

Area 2
  Climb the spiral stairs again until you reach the teleporter at the end. In
the next section, you will see a heart tank on the top. Climb up the falling
platform and cling on the right side of the wall before climbing up to reach
the heart tank. You can also do a jump that is followed by a Nova Strike to
reach the heart tank. Kuuenbu if you cannot reach it. Continue on to the next
section and you will be on a rising platform. The enemies will come out from
the left and right side or the wall. Use Rising Fire/Ryuenjin (Magma Dragoon)
to have an easier time. You cannot climb on the wall in this section until the
platform stops moving. Get the medium energy capsule and medium weapon capsule
at the top before meeting with Split Mushroom.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MUSHROOM
  "Are you X? I'm under orders to terminate you."
X
  "What?! Who's orders?"
MUSHROOM
  "Take a wild guess."


MUSHROOM
  "You made it this far. I'm impressed! You interested in a real challenge?"
ZERO
  "Who's your commanding officer?"
MUSHROOM
  "Never mind that, it's time to fight!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without special techniques
  Split Mushroom will start by clinging on the right wall while generating
Soul Bodies. Climb on the left wall and fire away. Zero has to slash him at
close range. When the Soul Bodies attack you. Do your best to avoid them. He
will create a duplicate of himself. The real Split Mushroom is the one that is
not blinking. Fire at it until he dies. Avoiding his attacks is hard but it can
be done.

With special techniques
  Use Lightning Web/Raijingeki (Web Spider) on it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You got Soul Body
"Accumulates energy and generates an illusion. Enemies will sustain damage if
struck by the soul energy. Requires high energy expenditures however and will
eventually dissipate in time or if it sustains heavy damage."


You learned Kuuenbu
"With the correct timing, higher and further jumps are possible while airborne.
Kuuenzan may be activated while attacking in the air."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The Soul Body that you fire will be close to you. This energy can attack
enemies and it is useful to destroy the yellow orbs in Cyber Space Area 1 to
get the head module and it is also used against Cyber Peacock. This energy will
follow your movement. The charged up version creates an exact duplicate of you.
You will be frozen but your duplicate can move around and fires his X-buster
like normal. The duplicate cannot charge up his weapons and cannot use any
special techniques that you have. It also does not have any modules that you
have received. The duplicate can go past your point of view but the screen will
never move until it is over. The duplicate will only disappear when the time
ends. This means that you can walk on spikes with it. Soul Body will never
trigger an event like getting a module or fighting a boss. Each Soul Body last
for 3 seconds and the charged up version last for 4 seconds. You can fire 8
Soul Body or 4 charged up Soul Body. Each charged up Soul Body takes away 2
Soul Body.
  Kuuenbu is a double jump. It comes with Kuuenzan. Kuuenzan is a stronger
attack than your ordinary slashes. You will probably use this technique the
most throughout the game. You cannot perform Hienkyaku (Jet Stingray) after
doing Kuuenbu and vice versa.

*******************************************************************************
Military Train
Boss: Slash Beast (He defends the military train to protect the supply of
                   goods)

Area 1
  Just go until the end of the train firing any enemies on the way. When a
robot comes and throws a bomb on to the train, just jump over. When you meet
the sub-boss at the end, fire with your charged shots from a safe distant.
Plasma shots work well here. Only the spike at the tip of the bar will hurt
you. Slash or Ryuenjin it with Zero.

Area 2
  Go forward like Area 1. In the middle of the train there is a ridden armor.
The armor can dash and jump like normal. Its weapon is a blade on the tip of
its hand. Press twice to make the blade do a slice. You can also do the slice
attack while jumping. Charge its weapon to do a dash attack. To get off the
armor, press up and jump.
  Go on and you will see a heart tank on the path. Get it and get off the armor
once you reach the end of the train. The train will stop. Get off and move
through the tracks to get to another train. At the end, you will meet
Slash Beast.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BEAST
  "Challenging my unit was both foolish and reckless! You are nothing more than
my prey... One that is soon to be retired!"


BEAST
  "You dared to attack my unit?! I'm gonna enjoy fighting you!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without special techniques
  Similar to Jet Stingray, cling on the wall and fire away. Jump and dash when
needed to avoid his attacks. Slash him quick and avoid him if he is going to
attack.

With special techniques
  Use Ground Hunter (Jet Stingray) on him and he will go down easily. Zero will
still have to slash him normally. Hopefully you have
Kuuenbu/Kuuenzan (Split Mushroom) and Hienkyaku (Jet Stingray) to help you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You got Twin Slasher
"Shoots Twin Slashers forward in two directions. This weapon has wide range
capabilities making it easier to hit enemies."


You learned Shippuuga
"S.M. button while dashing. You can execute a powerful dash blade attack.
Approach your enemy with Sippuuga and perform a combo!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  When you fire your Twin Slasher, 2 slashes will come out from your arm with
one going up and the other one going down. This weapon is not really strong and
is used to get the body module (Volcano Area 2). The charged up version just
create a wider spread of Twin Slasher. You can fire 48 Twin Slasher or 8
charged up Twin Slasher. Each charged up Twin Slasher takes away 6 Twin
Slasher.
  Use Shippuuga when you are dashing to slice enemies in front of you. Your
dash will instantly stop when you use it. Shippuuga is used against
Sigma's third form.

*******************************************************************************
Snow Base
Boss: Frost Walrus (He protects the secret weapon which lies inside the snow
                    base)

Area 1
  If you climb up on the wall to your left and dash over to the other side, you
will find medium energy capsules, medium weapon capsules and a life. This is
the best place to refill your E-tanks and W-tank. To get to the higher level of
the ground, you can either jump and do a Nova Strike or use a
Lightning Web (Web Spider). Kuuenbu (Split Mushroom) to get to the higher
platform.
  Back at the starting point, move forward. You will notice some ice blocks
appearing and disappearing every 5 seconds. You will die if you are at the
point where the ice blocks reform. There is an ice block above you after you
have climbed up the first stair. Use Rising Fire/Ryuenjin (Magma Dragoon) and a
heart tank will fall from above. Once you get past this section, you will be in
a place with ice blocks appearing and disappearing. Time yourself properly
before jumping. There is an extra life on the left side. Continue right while
jumping over some spikes.
  You will be tested in your jumping and dashing skills again. On the slopes,
keep doing dash jumps and you will get over this place quickly. Make sure you
do not make many mistakes, as the slope will begin to disappear in time. Once
you cannot go right any further, do not go down left. Instead, climb the wall
on the right to the top. Fire a Lightning Web (Web Spider) or
Kuuenbu (Split Mushroom) and cling on it before clinging on a higher level of
ground to get the EX-tank.
  Go down and continue with the slopes. At the end of the slopes, go on the
platform on the left instead of going down. You will find a large energy
capsule. Continue on to find many ice platforms coming up. Manoeuvre yourself
to go down and go right to meet a sub-boss. Just shoot at it and avoid it the
spikes above. Ryuenjin (Magma Dragoon) will make this battle end faster, or
else you just have to slash it. If it is dashing towards you, just shoot at it
to make it stop. When all the spikes on top are gone, it will change into a
star shape and bang around the screen, shoot it a few times and it will change
back to normal. Plasma shots works well here. Repeat the process and head on to
Area 2.

Area 2
  There is a W-tank on the top of this stage after destroying some ice blocks.
You should not have trouble finding it. If you do have problems, break every
block of ice in this stage and you will find it. On the second section of
Area 2, there is a bird that makes the entire screen covered in ice. Kill it if
you do not want this to happen. It will make the ceilings cover with spikes and
making the floor slippery. At the end, you will meet Frost Walrus.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WALRUS
  "They sent a kid like you after me? I promise to end this quickly..."


WALRUS
  "What's that blonde kid up to?! I don't have time for you junior!"
ZERO
  "Hey! Shut up and fight already!"
WALRUS
  "Oh... That does it, you're goin' down!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Without special techniques
  Charge, shoot/slash, climb and jump over him until Frost Walrus dies. If he
starts firing ice from his back, be ready to avoid some ice spikes from the
air. If he is breathing ice breath and forms a block of ice, avoid it and
destroy all the spikes that come out. When he crashes towards the wall, you
will lose your grip on the wall.

With special techniques
  Although Rising Fire (Magma Dragoon) is Frost Walrus's weakness, you should
stick with Plasma shots to make this battle end faster. This battle will be
easier with the boot module (Jungle Area 1). Ryuenjin should be used in this
battle.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You got Frost Tower
"Generates a huge ice block that acts as a shield. May also be used to trap
enemies before dissipating."


You learned Hyouretsuzan
"Down + S.M. button while jumping. A dive attack. Effective against surface
enemies."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Frost Tower creates a block of ice surrounding you. This weapon is good
against Jet Stingray. You can use Frost Tower on air. The block of ice will
come down after you use it on air. The charged up version will create a big ice
block coming down followed by 2 ice blocks and then it will be followed by 3
ice blocks and ending it with 4 ice blocks coming down. Frost Tower will last
for 3 seconds before disappearing. You can use Frost Tower 16 times or 4
charged up Frost Tower. Each charged up Frost Tower will take away 4 Frost
Tower.
  Hyouretsuzan is an ice attack that can only be done on air. It is used
against Jet Stingray (Marine Base) and Colonel. You can move slightly to the
left or right when doing it.

*******************************************************************************
Memorial Hall
Boss: Colonel

  After defeating any of the 4 Mavericks, you will meet the Colonel.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DOUBLE
  "Sir, it's a message from the Colonel!"
COLONEL
  "X! I'll wait for you at Memorial Hall. Make sure you show up on time."
DOUBLE
  "Sir, this must be a trap!"
X
  "...Perhaps. But I won't run this time!"


IRIS
  "I've got a message from Repliforce..."
COLONEL
  "Zero! I'll be at the Memorial Hall! Be there!"
IRIS
  "Don't go Zero! Don't fight him!"
ZERO
  "This is a matter of personal pride now. There's no avoiding this... I must
go."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Move forward to face Colonel. Zero will only see a movie that shows them both
fighting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "Colonel! Stop this foolishness now!"
COLONEL
  "...Never!"
X
  "Colonel, please! Think this over!"
COLONEL
  "The Repliforce must be independent! Our battle will determine this!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  In this battle, you should have 4 special techniques. X-buster works best
here. If you have Nova Strike, use it. The boot module (Jungle Area 1) works
best here too. Hover on air when Colonel disappears. He should reappear right
below you but he cannot harm you. When he uses the 3 slashes attack, you can
hover to avoid all of them. If you do not have the boot module, jump when you
think he is going to appear. When he does the 3 slashes attack, dash under the
first, jump over the second and dash under third while shooting him at the same
time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
COLONEL
  "Impressive! But the result won't be the same next time. Until then..."
X
  "Colonel!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  After this battle, you will continue fighting the remaining 4 Mavericks.

*******************************************************************************
Space Port
Boss: Colonel

  After defeating 8 Mavericks, you will go to the Space Port to stop the take
off.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DOUBLE
  "The Repliforce has begun assembling!"
X
  "Where are they?"
DOUBLE
  "The space port! They plan to take off into space!"
X
  "Hurry! We have to stop the Colonel!"


IRIS
  "Repliforce is at the space harbor..."
ZERO
  "I have to go."
IRIS
  "No! ...Please wait Zero! I don't want to see you two fight..."
ZERO
  "Someone has to stop your brother. I'm leaving..."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  This stage is easy. Just go until the end to meet Colonel. Before you enter
the first door, there is a large energy capsule on the top left corner. It is
hidden behind the wall. Just climb the wall on the left to the top to find it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "Colonel, step back!"
COLONEL
  "I'll stop anyone who tries to interfere with our independence!"
X
  "Enough of this! It's only an illusion!"
COLONEL
  "...You hunters will never be able to understand us! Get ready, X!"


ZERO
  "I don't want to fight. Step back."
COLONEL
  "I'm sorry. I can't let you through..."
ZERO
  "Iris will be sad if she loses you..."
COLONEL
  "Don't be so presumptuous Zero! Save it until after you've defeated me!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  You should have all the special techniques by now. Even so, X-buster still
works better than any weapons that you have. Jump and dash like the first match
against him. Zero should use Hyouretsuzan on him. His slashes are faster and he
has a new attack. He will summon a bolt of lightning onto his sword. The ground
will be filled with electricity and then it will shoot up. Jump in between the
electricity and minimize damage. Attack only if you think you are safe. You can
climb up the wall to avoid his slash attack.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
COLONEL
  "...Impressive... But... it's too late!"
X
  "What?"
COLONEL
  "The Repliforce... already left for space! ...I'm beaten... but the
Repliforce will never perish! The Reploids' nation will be born in the vastness
of space!"
X
  "Colonel!!!"


COLONEL
  "...Impressive Zero! But it's too late!"
ZERO
  "What!?"
COLONEL
  "Repliforce has left for the space! Even if I perish, Repliforce lives."
ZERO
  "...Colonel."
COLONEL
  "...Zero. Tell Iris that her brother died happily! ...Good bye Zero!"
ZERO
  "Colonel!!!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*******************************************************************************
Final Weapon Part 1
Boss: Double/Iris, General

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DOUBLE
  "Repliforce has flown off into space..."
X
  "...Double, watch the ship for me. I'll go after them!"
DOUBLE
  "Sir! Reconsider what you are doing, it's far too dangerous!"
X
  "We don't have any other option! I'm leaving you in charge here, Double!"


HUNTER H.Q.
  "They've left for outer space! Scramble all Maverick Hunters!"
ZERO
  "Iris? Where are you? Iris! She left with them? No!!"
HUNTER H.Q.
  "Maverick Hunters! Scramble!"
ZERO
  "I'm on my way! Don't do this to me Iris..."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Refill your tanks before going to the Final Weapon. You will see a movie
about Double who becomes evil. Zero will just go on with the stage. Go ahead on
the first section of the stage and you will meet Double/Iris soon.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "Double! What... Why are you here!?"
DOUBLE
  "...Hee hee hee. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! The Mavericks, Hunters and Repliforce...
Idiots, all of them. They're making my job to easy!"
X
  "...W... What are you talking about? Double, what are you saying?!"
DOUBLE
  "Think it over in heaven! Die, X!"


ZERO
  "Iris!"
IRIS
  "So you fought with my brother..."
ZERO
  "I'm sorry..."
IRIS
  "Then it's over. Everything..."
ZERO
  "Wait Iris! Listen to me!"
IRIS
  "Good bye Zero..."
ZERO
  "Iris!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The battle with Double is easy if you know what you are doing. He will be
jumping up and slamming himself to the wall. Just climb up the wall and you
will be safe as he cannot reach higher than half of the wall. If he shoots out
'bubbles', just be as close as possible to him and dash away before it touches
you. Once his life is low, he will start shooting out 2 crest shape beam. Dash
under the first one and climb up the wall quickly to avoid the second beam.
Only charged up shots work on him. Double Cyclone works here but it will make
some bird-like machine shoot at you. Just stick to the first strategy.
  Zero should just Ryuenjin and Kuuenzan the robot until the diamond appears.
Destroy those bombs that comes out from Iris every time you attack it. When
Iris charges its laser beam, cling yourself to the wall and attack the bombs
that comes near you. It will be harder to avoid if the diamond is there to
shoot you too. Just be in the centre of the stage and cling to the wall before
Iris shoots.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "Double!"
DOUBLE
  "...Damn! ...How could I lose to a weakling like you...
X
  "Double, tell me! Why did you do this?"
DOUBLE
  "...Hee hee hee. Ha ha ha! You're so naive, X! I was sent as a spy from the
very beginning to keep an eye on you!"
X
  "...Double! I... I trusted you!"
DOUBLE
  "Ha ha ha ha! That naiveness may be your fatal flaw! Good bye, X! See you in
the after life!"
X
  "Double!!"


(Zero will watch a movie on Iris's death)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Continue on until you reach a door. Go through the door and you will be
subjected to go through a lot of spikes. Use Lightning Web or Kuuenbu to get
through this area. If you choose to fall down before the door. You will have to
jump and dash a lot. You will get an Eagle Armor at the middle of this path.
Just be careful not to fall down at this path. At the end, General will be
waiting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  "General! What are you planning to do?
GENERAL
  "...We're going to build a nation for the Reploids. That's our ultimate goal.
We'll fight anyone who tries to interfere with our independence."
X
  "There must be alternatives to this mindless fighting!"
GENERAL
  "...We were called Mavericks without justifiable reason. What other choice
did we have than to fight?"
X
  "...But..."
GENERAL
  "It's too late now! Get ready, X!"


ZERO
  "General! Many died because of you! Those lives are on your conscience!"
GENERAL
  "Independence always has a high price..."
ZERO
  "What about Iris?! Did you forget her?"
GENERAL
  "I have no regrets. Come on, Zero!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  General has a variety of attacks. The most common used attack is the
'hand attack'. He will shoot out his hands depending on how high you are and
fires some shots towards you. Make sure he shoots out his hands at the highest
point. Then, attack him when you are near. Another 'attack' is moving around
the stage. Just cling onto the wall to be safe. If you are underneath him when
he is doing this, he will slam himself to do ground. Avoid by dashing away. The
'diamond shot' attack will be used if his life is low. Cling on the wall and
position yourself to avoid his attack.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
X
  ".. what? What happened!?"
GENERAL
  "...It can't be... This weapon must be malfunctioning..."
X
  "General! What do you mean?"
GENERAL
  "Someone else is controlling it! ...You must hurry X. The earth is... in
danger!"
X
  "Alright. I'll stop the weapon myself!"


ZERO
  "What is this!? What happened!?"
GENERAL
  "No! This weapon can't be working..."
ZERO
  "General! What's wrong?"
GENERAL
  "Someone else is controlling it!"
ZERO
  "Then... Earth's in grave danger! It must be stopped! I'll handle this..."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*******************************************************************************
Final Weapon Part 2
Boss: All the previous bosses and Sigma in three forms

  Refill your tanks as this will be your last chance. You will have to fight
all the 8 Mavericks before confronting Sigma. Use the strategy above and you
should win. Continue on to meet Sigma.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SIGMA
  "This is amusing... It really is X...
X
  "You're... Sigma!"
SIGMA
  "Hee hee hee. My plan to keep Repliforce and the Maverick Hunters at each
others' throats worked perfectly! ...Double did a good job as a spy!"
X
  "Why you...!"
SIGMA
  "Hee hee hee. Repliforce are the fools this time! Now all that's left is to
destroy Earth with the very weapon they made."
X
  "No! I'll never let you do that!"
SIGMA
  "Try hard X. Your life depends on it!"


SIGMA
  "Hee hee hee. Good work, Zero!"
ZERO
  "You're... Sigma! ...So it was you!"
SIGMA
  "Hee hee hee. Yes! Simply brilliant! You even defeated Colonel and Iris!"
ZERO
  "...You made me do it!"
SIGMA
  "No. You wanted to destroy them! Allow me to remind you that I was once the
leader of the Maverick Hunters..."

(A movie showing Sigma as a Maverick Hunter leader against Zero)

SIGMA
  "Zero! You were a Maverick?!"
ZERO
  "What's your point?! Are you that surprised?"
SIGMA
  "Ah... Zero! You're most impressive!"
ZERO
  "Sigma... I will defeat you!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The first form is easy. Use Rising Fire/Ryuenjin on him twice. Then, climb to
the topmost corner of the wall to avoid his attack. Repeat until his second
form appears.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SIGMA
  "Hee hee hee. You are very good, X! But not for long. You won't be able to
evade this attack!"


SIGMA
  "I've been waiting for you Zero! It's time for us to settle this!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  This is a bit harder than the first form. He will throw his scythe first.
Avoid it easily. The second time he throws, the scythe will follow you and
determine his next attack. If it touches the ground, he will create four homing
boomerangs to attack you. Hard to avoid but it is possible. You should let the
scythe hit the wall. It will electrify that wall and Sigma will shoot lasers on
the ground. Use this chance to attack him. Repeat until the third form.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SIGMA
  "Ha ha ha ha ha! Feel my incredible power! Drown in the empty vastness of
space!"


SIGMA
  "Ha ha ha! You're finished Zero! Iris is waiting for you!"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  There is a medium energy capsule for you to use. Sigma's third form has more
attacks. The three heads has different attacks. The blue head shoots ice breath
towards the ground. Avoid it by clinging to something or be on top of it. The
red head spits fire towards you. Jump to the topmost corner and fall down after
he has spit twice. The yellow head shoots electric shots at you. Hard to avoid.
It is easier to destroy them then to avoid their attacks.
  Your real target is Sigma, and there are two of them for you to destroy. The
one on the ground has two attacks. One is by blowing you towards some spikes.
The spikes can't kill you but it can damage you. X should just dash and shoot
while Zero using Shippuuga to attack Sigma. Its second attack is sucking in
you and some debris into his mouth and spitting them out. Use Rakuhouha to
protect yourself or do some quick slashes to destroy the debris. X can use
Plasma shot to destroy the debris.
  The second Sigma is the one holding a giant gun. He will either shoot the
ground or aim at you a few times. X should climb up the heads and use charged
shots at him. Zero can use Kuuenbu/Kuuenzan at him by destroying the head below
him.
  The heads and Sigma will come out alternately so be prepared for his next
attack. When you have finished him off, go forward and end the game.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SIGMA
  "...Hee hee hee."
X
  "What's so funny?"
SIGMA
  "This weapon is aimed straight at earth already... No one can stop it now!"
X
  "Damn!"
SIGMA
  "Ha ha ha ha ha! Good bye, X!"

X
  "General!"
GENERAL
  "...The weapon can be stopped with my body."
X
  "But then you'll..."
GENERAL
  "...Many of my men have died. As their leader, I must leave with them... X,
please forgive our foolishness..."
X
  "General!"

SIGMA
  "...Hee hee hee."
ZERO
  "What's so funny?"
SIGMA
  "This weapon is aimed at Earth... No one can stop it..."
ZERO
  "No!"
SIGMA
  "Ha ha ha ha ha!! Good bye, Zero!"

ZERO
  "General!"
GENERAL
  "...Zero... I was... wrong. Sigma... He blinded me to the truth..."
ZERO
  "It's okay... Rest."
GENERAL
  "...With my body I can stop the weapon."
ZERO
  "But then you'll..."
GENERAL
  "It's over for this soldier. Farewell!"
ZERO
  "General!!!"
