  • Elevator Spikes Invincibility

    The elevator sequence in Boomer Kuwanger's tower is full of spikes. Due to programming issues with the hit detection, however, they pose almost no threat whatsoever. If you take damage from one of the flying enemies just before reaching a spiked platform, X will simply clip right through the platform instead of instantly dying. If you jump on the spikes lining the walls, press the jump button again while X is taking damage, and his health bar won't register the hit.

  • Glitched Factory

    When you first enter Flame Mammoth's factory, take a closer look at the ceiling tubes that drop the spare robot parts. Despite their appearances, they're actually large holes, not solid objects. To reach inside, simply jump on top of a scrapped Utuboros head, and then do a dash jump into the tube. If done correctly, X will connect with the inside of the tube, and can wall jump off-screen and walk on top of the ceiling. The bottom of X's boots will still appear onscreen, allowing you to keep track of his position. You can use this method to bypass the first conveyor belt section. You'll have to dash jump across when you reach the walkway section. This area will be differently colored, and have a glitched sub tank sprite, a missing capsule, and invisible enemies due to the stage not loading correctly.

  • Glitched Password

    This password has four known effects depending on how you execute it - the password is 7443 2241 1221. Regardless of what you do, it will sound as a "wrong" password, but the effects take effect nonetheless. If you enter the password without going into the demo, the game will hang upon gameplay beginning. If you enter the black screen moments prior to the demo, then go on and enter the password, you simply start with 10 health. If you go into the demo once, then exit it and enter the password, you'll start with all weapons, 32 health, and zero lives. Finally, if you enter the demo, wait it out, then press Start in the black screen prior to a second demo, you can enter the password to start with 10 health and all weapons.

  • Skip Armored Armadillo Rematch

    Before you enter the room for the Armored Armadillo rematch, position X slightly less than two body lengths away from the door. Equip the Shotgun Ice and do a fully-charged shot. While the ice platform is forming, have X walk in front of it. When the new platform spawns, it will push X into the door, but the camera won't adjust to the correct position. This causes the room to load incorrectly. If you walk straight through, the door on the other side will automatically open, and Armored Armadillo won't appear at all. If you jump while in this room, however, a glitched version of Armored Armadillo will load.

  • Subtank Glitch

    Get three sub-tanks and make sure one of your special weapons has less than full power. Then, with the weapon that has less than full power selected, grab a weapon capsule and immediately hit start. If you did it right, you'll have a fourth sub-tank. Fill it using the same method, just don't over fill or you'll delete it and your third one. It recovers health just like the a normal one.

  • Hadouken for Mega Man X.

    (Note: Must have Heart Tanks, Sub-Tanks, enemy weapons, and power-ups.) Go to Armored Armadillo's stage. Reach the final mine cart, which launches you through the air at the end of the stage. Just before you reach the wall, jump up and climb the wall. At the top, there will be a large Energy Unit. Get it, and then jump into the pit and die. Repeat this step five times. On the fifth time through, a capsule will appear on that same ledge. Enter the capsule and Dr. Light will teach X the Hadouken, Ryu's fireball from the Street Fighter series.

  • Stage Secrets

    Some stages are a little different if you beat a certain boss first. If you beat Chill Penguin, the Lava in Flame Mammoth's stage will be frozen. If you beat Storm Eagle, the lights in Spark Mandrill's stage will flicker on and off. If you beat Launch Octopus, Sting Chameleon's stage will be partially flooded.

  • Stronger normal shots

    Dash while firing your uncharged X-Buster to cause the shot to deal double damage. This is useful when you don't have time to wait for a shot to charge.

Enemy/Boss Tips

  • Boomerang Cutting Flame Mammoth And Launch Octopus

    Aside from their usual weapon weaknesses, Flame Mammoth and Launch Octopus have a special vulnerability to the Boomerang Cutter. It doesn't cause any extra damage to their health bars, but it severely weakens their offensive capabilities. Three Boomerang Cutters will slice off Flame Mammoth's trunk, leaving him unable to shoot fire, oil, or change the direction of the conveyor belt floor. Launch Octopus will lose four of his tentacles, leaving him unable to fire his homing missiles or activate his whirlpool energy drain attack.
